Address: Parque Taoro, 28, Puerto de la Cruz, 38400, Spain

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.3

A genteel oasis secreted in tropical gardens, with panoramic views over Puerto and the ocean.

Anyone with a yen for a leafy setting, peace, tranquillity and excellent service won’t be disappointed with the Tigaiga. Old fashioned charm and a friendly atmosphere are the trademarks of this family-run hotel. Although close to the centre of Puerto, staying here feels to me like a weekend in the country.

Location

Bright, clean and airy with plenty of floor space and continental quilts, which can still be something of a rarity in Tenerife hotels. Décor is a tad unimaginative with cream walls, turquoise carpets and floral prints in peach and orange. Odd numbered rooms have views over the valley to Mount Teide and the higher the floor, the better the view. Even numbers look out over Parque Taoro.

Bedrooms

Décor is on a conservatory theme with plants and wicker much in evidence. Outside there’s a gorgeous covered terrace garden-side which serves as the breakfast room, and in summer tables are set on the lawn for candlelit dinners.

Public areas

Cuisine is more worthy of five stars than four, with fresh ingredients beautifully cooked and presented with flair. Menus reflect the predominantly German clientele, particularly at breakfast. Evening meals are plentiful and meat oriented, so veggies should head into Puerto to Maná or Mil Sabores.

Eating and drinking

Not much to shout about; a small sauna and a tennis court but the pool is lovely (if a tad nippy in winter) with compelling views over the town and the ocean from its terrace.

Leisure facilities

There’s a reason the Tigaiga consistently receives awards; the service is faultless - informal, friendly and courteous.

Service

There’s a reason the Tigaiga consistently receives awards; the service is faultless. Informal, friendly and courteous with lots of lovely little touches.

Who stays there

In winter, predominantly German, elderly holidaymakers who return year after year. Weekends and summer see more Spanish mainlanders and locals.
