The San Roque Hotel – Garachico, North Tenerife
Small 4 star Boutique Hotel in The Canaries offering high standards and friendly service
Rooms & Suites
All 20 rooms are individually finished to a very high standard, with many examples of Charles Rennie Mackintosh furniture. There were other many fine pieces of art, a blend of modern and old.
Standard Rooms (which are far from standard), Duplex Rooms and Junior Suites all have full facilities. The difference with this hotel is that the Jacuzzi type baths are in the bedrooms and not in the bathrooms where the showers are; an ingenious touch.
Facilities and things to do.
Immediately on entering the hotel you pass through reception and on into a beautiful courtyard with tables and chairs surrounded by balconies of rooms, in Cuban/Spanish style, an old design to help create a cool atmosphere. On another courtyard to the right you find a very private and attractive pool and terrace, with a small eating area (both inside and out).
Ideal for clients who wish a small personal hotel set in a historic town, who want privacy and quietness but every comfort, and who say that they would never visit Tenerife. They also seem to cater well for single clients who want no fuss. Would suit anyone interested in arts, artists, writers etc.
A daily menu is offered and can be adapted to suit clients’ individual tastes, very much Canarian and Mediterranean; snacks are also offered. There is a large attractive lounge off the main courtyard offering drinks and also a small reading room. There are several secluded corners throughout the hotel to sit and relax.
Other restaurants and cafes are within easy walking distance of the hotel.
The northwest coast between Puerto De La Cruz and Garachico is very scenic and very often missed by visitors. Garachico dates from 1496 and was once a major port. The Hotel San Roque is set in a quiet street behind the sea front; many of the old buildings survived the volcanic eruption of 1706.
The hotel is in an excellent position to serve the 18 hole Golf Course further along the coast. This hotel could be combined with one of the smaller hotels in La Gomera or South Tenerife, ask for further details. You can easily reach the scenic Orotava Valley or Puerto De La Cruz by bus; hire car or taxi in around 30 minutes.
