... up the lovely sun and using the pool before heading up to get ready and enjoying some pre dinner drinks. We decided to head back for more of what had been our fav meal of the trip, chicken! Andrew joined Mandy in having a barraquito coffee, which is a first, Andrew enjoying coffee!! Headed back to the hotel after our meal and called it a night.
... the restaurant we had chosen was just a short walk along the coast and also looked out over the water. It was primarily a fish restaurant so we indulged in some local choices with one in particular being recommended by the wait staff. After a lovely meal we headed back to the hotel and enjoyed some drinks on the balcony.
... the sea where we enjoyed various tapas and a ice cold beer before heading back to the hotel for some more relaxing.
We took a taxi to Adeje which is about 10 minutes away to have dinner in this street cafe that only does Garlic chicken, home made chips and salad, which made the ordering easy! It was good, despite the screaming children at the next table doing their best to spoil everyone's dinner. We returned to the hotel and had a few glasses of vino on the balcony.
... br> We then headed to the world famous Linekers bar, after being chaperoned in so the boy could get commission we gritted our teeth through the round of drinks and left. We decided that we would walk the journey home, stopping for a drink in a bar that happened to have the Aberdeen Elvis! Only saw about ten minutes but was mildly entertaining, we then completed the journey home and called it a night.
... place where it tended to be a lot of locals enjoying the type of food that we love. The pictures do the talking!
We then headed back along the coast stopping at a couple of bars on the way including a bar close to where Mandy used to stay where we bumped into a couple people she knew, after a drink in there we had the dancing shoes on, so a quick trip back to the hotel to change and back to the dubliner for a wee dance before calling it a night!

Historical Traveler Reviews Gran Hotel El Tope Puerto de la Cruz
A really good hotel, we have a months winter hoilday every year in puerto de la cruz using another hotel. We decided to try the Le Tope this winter in november/december and wish we'd found this hotel years ago. I neednt list all the good points for since in our opinion there was'nt a single bad thing about this hotel We've already booked our next winter holiday at the El Tope so we can recomend this hotel to all.
What a relaxing holiday
Good hotel, wonderful food, if not a little samey if staying for two weeks. My only complaint was the awful air conditioning. A hand held fan would have; given more satisfaction and prevent us from passing out. All in all though, thoroughly enjoyable. Get the sunbeds before those bloody Germans!
We had a wonderful 2weeks holiday. Staff were very efficient, room was good, food very good, entertainment good and the thompson reps were great. A very good 4* Hotel which we would use again.
I must be too fussy
Although I found the hotel staff & Thompson reps extremely efficient, I thought the food was very unadventurous and not always very hot which is more than I can say about the temperature in the rooms. We were nearly passing out all night and ended up sleeping on the balcony on sun beds and dining out as the air conditioning was faulty all week.
They said it was too much of a drain on the electricity so switched it off! I certainly would not go there again. The entertainment was very good but the pool could have been larger and there was a definite shortage of sun beds.
Brilliant holiday, resort beutiful laid back and relaxing.
Hotel first rate, rooms well equiped, and good views from room. Hotel staff friendly and helpful, and Thomsons staff always on hand. As has been mentioned in other review, food excellent, and I am fussy as well, but always found something to eat. Staff always checking temperature of food and ensuring that everything is to your satisfaction.
Mt Teidi cake fed everyone in hotel as a sweet and was a masterpiece of decoration.
I would have no problem with recomending this Hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing break away in a well run friendly hotel in a town that has retained some of its own character.
We have just got back from a great holiday at the El Tope which we booked through Thompson Gold.It was a most enjoyable and relaxing break. We found the room spacious and very comfortable and everywhere was kept spotless. The staff were so helpful and the entertainment was varied and well planned.It was in such a nice location although quite a steep climb back from the town the views were worth it. The food was always plentiful although the menu was a bit unadventurous.We would certainly recommend El Tope to older couples aged 30 plus for its friendliness and peaceful relaxed atmosphere.
Booked the hotel through Thomsons Gold, hoping for a better than average holiday hotel only to find a terrific one.
The food was great, the staff constantly checked the temperature of all of the buffet and replaced anything that had droped below the required level.
I am told that I am too fussy over my eating habits (by the wife), and I thouroughly enjoyed all that was served up.
The staff were always there but not obtrusive as were the thomsons staff. The trips were as usual overpriced but after being lulled by the hotel who cares. Great HOTEL.
Stayed at the El Tope with my sister June 02, booked with Thomsons Gold.Impressed by public areas, and room was lovely, though had to be moved at our expense as Thomsons had not informed the hotel I have walking difficulties and they put us in rooms with stairs only access - and overlooking the road.Pool was too small and we never ever got a sunbed for the day. We had to wait till around 4pm and then go down for a swim. Fortunately our second room had a very large balcony overlooking the pool and two sun loungers, but I do love to swim so that was a disappointment.Food was average, perfectly nice but would expect better for this type of hotel. Not too much variation, after the first couple of days and we did eat out once or twice. Waiters and service superb, very friendly. Have to say having champagne at breakfast was a very nice touch, though we had to limit ourselves!!!!Other thing is the El Tope is high up, another thing not explained by Thomsons, and the only way down to the town really was via lots of steps, ( or a very very steep hill) no handrails, so a huge problem for me. Managed it once and from then on we got a taxi to town, but missing all the little shops on the way, far cheaper than the sea front..I should mention I was 39 and my sister 30 at the time of this holiday,so we were also about the youngest there, but this wasn't a problem at all. We love our nieces and nephews, but a week in a child free environment, I have to say was very relaxing. This was our first girls holiday together alone, and to be honest the hotel was great for us, reading, sunbathing, exploring, shopping.Entertainment was absolutely first class. No need to go out if you didn't want to.I have been to Tenerife once before, to Los Christianos, but really wanted to visit Puerto de la Cruz. Have to say this resort is just beautiful. Much more traditional, laid back, entertainment there if you want it but not in your face all day and all night. Much much nicer than the south, which my sister agreed when we had a day lovely holiday at this hotel, and I would return, despite the steps. Puerto de la Cruz would always be my first choice for Tenerife.
