Beachside bliss with mountain views
The Bahia Principe Sunlight San Felipe is a tropical oasis on the island's north coast. Sitting pretty on Puerto de la Cruz's seafront a mere 30 metres from the beach, the complex features incredible views of both dramatic Mount Teide and the glittering sea.
Set within a lush garden of palms and manicured lawns, a spacious sun terrace surrounds the two heated outdoor pools - one for adults and one for children - which are served by a tasty poolside snack bar. A daily programme of entertainment and a kids' club will make sure that youngsters never get bored while grown ups can let off some steam at the gym or in the luxurious Bahia Spa which boasts an indoor pool, sauna, whirlpool, hairdressers and massage and beauty treatments. Meals are served at one buffet and two à la carte restaurants which dish up feasts of Spanish and Italian cuisine. After dinner, unwind at the complex's two bars before getting involved in the evening entertainment which ranges from bingo and quizzes to shows and live music. And when it's time to retire, you'll find the hotel's arrangement of rooms and suites to be comfortably kitted out with all you need for an easy and restful stay (think safety deposit boxes, hairdryers, minibars and air conditioning).
Aqua aerobics, basketball, darts, petanque, Pilates, tennis and table tennis are sure to keep all ages and stages entertained, but motorised scooter rental is also available from reception should you fancy setting off to explore under your own steam.
