The heated pool of the San Roque Hotel

During the trip I made to Tenerife Last November we were lucky to enjoy the delicacies of the varied Canarian cuisine. We were able to eat good fish by the sea in the town of Garachico, consistent grills of meat accompanied by cooked in the Anaga massif and lighter dishes in The lagoon or the south of the island. All this accompanied, of course, by the ubiquitous wrinkled potatoes and their mojo.

To rest we were lucky to not be changing accommodation on a daily basis and we tried two very different places that I will discuss below.

Accommodation

San Roque Hotel

Deluxe rooms

Since I entered through the beautiful door of the old 18th century manor house I felt comfortable and calm. This is the atmosphere that is breathed in the hotel San Roque. Absolute relaxation just a few meters from the port of the small town of Garachico.

Laly and his family worked hard for many years to condition the house built by a descendant of the founder of Garachico (Genoese Cristóbal de Ponte) and turn it into what it is today. Each room is different from the others but they have common features: comfortable beds, flat DVD televisions and jacuzzi between them.

The common areas are decorated with a mixture of avant-garde art and the classic original structure. Reading rooms, lounge to watch TV and have a drink, a central courtyard where a beautiful fountain stands as the main protagonist, heated pool excavated in the volcanic rock, solarium and a restaurant (Anturium) where you can taste the dishes created by chef Danny Nielsen, based on a mixture of local and foreign products. There we had dinner our first night on the island and it was, for me, the best gastronomic experience of the week.
