Expert review of Hotel Rural Senderos de Abona

A rural slice of 19th-century Tenerife.

A 19th-century traditional Canarian house set a world away from Tenerife's purpose-built resorts - this is a place where you’ll find real Canarian culture to go with your southern sunshine. It's a good base for exploring and hiking.

Location: 

In the working town of Granadilla, 600 metres above the east coast and alongside one of the south’s most beautiful churches and picturesque streets. A 20-minute transfer from the south airport and 30 minutes to the coastal resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Américas.

Bedrooms: 

Bedrooms rise and fall over original wooden floors in a series of narrow staircases and small alcoves, none of which would pass a plumb line test. Like in your granny’s Victorian terrace, rooms have their original period furniture, faded rugs, flowery quilts and net curtains.

Public areas: 

The primrose walls and carved balconies of the Senderos are impossible to miss as you arrive alongside the church in Granadilla. Step through the gate and you enter a walled secret garden of cobbled courtyards, fruit trees, endemic plants, pots brimming with trailing geraniums and the sound of a sprinkling fountain. Inside, the house has stood still in its 19th century cocoon, and are filled with antique furniture and Canarian antiquities.

Eating and drinking: 

A small restaurant serves a good cold buffet breakfast and traditional Canarian meals of the meat and wrinkled potatoes variety.

Leisure facilities: 

There’s a plunge pool in the gardens and some sunbathing terraces. If you’re looking for facilities, you’re in the wrong place. Granadilla itself has some interesting buildings including the former convent San Luis which is now the library, the church and a little museum with a delightfully macabre Guanche mummy section and rooms the size of a doll’s house.

Service: 

Family owned and run, service is friendly and attentive if a little slow at times.
