Hotel Riu Garoe
Travel Blogs from Puerto de la Cruz
... 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 Hotel Riu Garoe Puerto de la Cruz
Un hotel y una comida de primera clase. Teníamos una habitación encima de la zona de entretenimientos con lo que podíamos oír todo hasta las 23-30 horas.
what a gem of a hotel - only 190 rooms so not too big. Hotel location in quiet area of upmarket La Paz district only about 500m from Botanical Gardens. You can walk to town centre and lido in Puerto but it's down 184 steps. Best to use hotel free bus which runs on a regular basis except Sunday.
first class hotel and food,we had room above entertainments,so till approx 23-30 hours we could hear everything.
Das Muss der Kanarischen Inseln
Meine Familie und ich haben eine Woche in diesem Hotel verbracht. Alles war wundervoll: Personal, Ausstattung, Zimmer, Essen. Obwohl ich zum ersten Mal auf Teneriffa war, wollte ich das Hotel überhaupt nicht mehr verlassen, um andere Dinge zu sehen. Das war gar nicht nötig! Man hatte alles, was man brauchte, im Hotel. Ich kann dieses Hotel sehr empfehlen. Es arbeiten sehr nette Leute dort, vor allem Sergio, der mit seinem Gesang und Klavierspiel für unvergessliche Abende verantwortlich war. Falls Sie mit ein paar Extra-Kilos nach Hause kommen wollen, dann ist dies der richtige Ort für Sie. Was für ein hochwertiges, gut präsentiertes Essen! Sprechen Sie nicht von Teneriffa, sprechen Sie vom vom Riu Garoe Hotel!
THE MUST OF CANARY ISLANDS
My family and I spent one week on this hotel. Everything was wonderful: staff, facilities, rooms, food. Althoug this was my first stay in Tenerife I did not wanted to leave the hotel to visit other things. This was not necessary! You had whatever you needed inside the hotel. I can strongly recomend this hotel. Very nice people working there, specially Sergio who was responsible of unforgeteable evenings, singing and playing piano.
If you want to come back to home with some more Kilograms, this is the right place to choose. What excellent quality and presentation food ! Don´t say Tenerife, say Riu Garoe Hotel !
A good experience.
Stayed for 7 days. No lager-lout Brits or a soccer shirt in sight. Hotel had a German bias which is a definate plus, as they do all the complianing and enforcement of standards (I assume) and we had to do nothing but enjoy the ambiance. That said, I'm not sure that any complaining was necessary as there is a high and visible hotel management presence on a daily basis.
Food was very good and cosmopolitan (if you are looking for fish, chips and peas then you will need to go elsewhere), and service was attentive, but then again, they assume you are German but will speak English to you when they realise who you are. Interestingly, you keep the same dining table each day as your own and the same waiter.
For a 7 day break we would certainly go back again.
After many visits to hotels and apartments in Puerto de la Cruz have just returned from a weeks holiday in the Hotel Garoe in the La Paz area.
On arrival it was a pleasure to find fresh fruit, wine, a cold plate of meat/cheese and freshly laundered bath robes in our room. The mini bar was a bonus in that its prices were one of the cheapest I have experienced.
My wife and I who are both in our 60s stayed at the Riu Garoe in June . From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for Sen. Figueroa, the Manager and his staff to make our stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible. Our suitcases were delivered to our room without us raising a finger. Our room was decorated to a high standard and kept immaculately clean by our maid Carmen.
