Gardens

Discover the natural wonders of Tenerife on this garden holiday. Visit 10 stunning gardens and wild areas, each showcasing a variety of plants from around the world. Stroll through Parque García Sanabria to admire its gardens, fountains, and flower clock. Venture into vineyards and hike through pine forests, where the scent of wild lavender fills the air. Wander along steep flagstone paths, beside trickling streams, and discover secret grottos surrounded by botanical plants and stunning ocean views. At Mount Teide National Park, Spain's highest peak, marvel at volcanic landscapes with geothermal wonders like cones, caves, and lava tracks. Endemic wildflowers bring ribbons of color to the rugged hiking trails while geckos and lizards skitter over rocks, and finches and canaries flit amongst patches of flowering foliage.

Local Area

The hotel stands in the quiet, elevated quarter of Puerto de la Cruz known as La Paz. It’s a great base for exploring, with various shops, bars and restaurants within easy reach, and some beautiful parks and botanical gardens less than 30 minutes’ walk away. The main square of Puerto de la Cruz old town is about two kilometres away and the beach is even closer, all easily reached by taxi, local bus or the Saga courtesy bus which runs from Monday to Saturday.

Very nice hotel. Good food. Excellent Saga host and hotel staff lovely​.

Included excursions

El Jardín de Aclimatación de la Orotava and the lost garden of El Sitio Litre

1/5

Step inside the Jardin de Aclimatación and you'll find yourself in an exotic oasis surrounded by gigantic figs, palms and flowering plants such as frangipani and poinsettia. This botanical garden is the result of more than two centuries' work and provides a place of peace and tranquility for the people of Puerto de la Cruz. Another of Tenerife's oldest gardens is El Sitio Litre. Set within the grounds of a private mansion, this is where you'll find Tenerife's largest collection of orchids sitting between pathways, pergolas and plenty of seats from where to take it all in.
