Mark and David's verdict
One in every ten Brits bound for the promise of sun each winter will be in Tenerife, just a four hour flight away and with many more stylish properties than its reputation might suggest. Aside from beaches, don’t miss a trip to the end of the world landscapes of the Las Canadas Teide national park, bang in the middle and dominated by the two mile high, Fuji-like volcano.

Classic Collection Holidays says

Tenerife ticks virtually every box for a holiday – year-round sunshine, beaches, water sports, golf, fishing, whale- and dolphin-watching, the snow-capped Mount Teide volcano and direct flights from most UK airports. Top all that with an amazing collection of luxury accommodation ranging from intimate boutique hotels to world-class family resorts and it’s a hard combination to beat.

  • Boutique hotels
  • Luxury resorts
  • Year-round sun

Most of our selected hotels are on the sophisticated Costa Adeje in the south of the island. Here you’ll find Blue Flag beaches, terrific restaurants, water parks, golf and an attractive harbour.

Our expert team will help you find the right resort to suit you. Here are some of our favourites.

Our best-seller is the impressive Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque, complete with an award-winning spa, nine restaurants, and lush tropical gardens. It is consistently highly-rated by our customers.

In the same class is the Abama Golf & Spa Resort which boasts its own 18-hole golf course amongst the many superb facilities.

Families are spoiled for choice. We particularly recommend the Iberostar Selection Anthelia – which offers spacious interconnecting family rooms, plenty of facilities for children and an all-inclusive option.

Its sister hotel, the elegant Iberostar Grand El Mirador, is one of the few hotels in Tenerife which is for adults only.

If you like your hotel small and perfectly formed, we highly recommend the Vincci Seleccion La Plantacion del Sur, a member of Leading Small Hotels of the World, and the intimate Hotel San Roque, set in a grand 18th-century house in the unspoiled north of Tenerife.
