When you are enjoying the sea view on the 35sqm terrace of our corner bungalow listening to the sound of the birds in the nearby Barranco (gorge) you have chosen an ideal holiday site in the mild tempered and green north of the island of eternal spring. Your spacious, fully equipped vacation retreat is in the front line near the sea of the 24,000 sqm sub-tropical park of the 4* resort La Quinta Park Suites and Spa that offers pools, a spa and all kinds of amenities. Here you are downhill and well removed from the hustle and bustle of the hotel uphill. Which does not mean that you are all by yourself – the garden is shared with many geckos, small colourful lizards and birds. Located just outside of Puerto de la Cruz the quiet La Quinta quarter of Santa Ursula is the ideal starting point for all kinds of activities to everyone’s liking. Self-catering, alternatively half-board in the hotel is possible.
How about going hiking this time during your holidays (Anaga mountains, Cañadas), on your own or joining one of the many guided tours for all levels of difficulty? Alternatively you could go on an outing to one of the beautiful black sand beaches in and around Puerto de la Cruz (Playa de Jardines, Playa Bollullo, El Socorro) or discover the mysteries of the native Guanches in the museums of Santa Cruz or Puerto de la Cruz and - especially spectacular – at the pyramids of Güimar. Of course, Loro Parque and the botanical garden in Puerto de la Cruz are a ‚must see‘, just as the trip to the summit of the Teide.... and this list is by no means exhaustive. If you let us know what you are particularly interested in, we might be able to give you some ideas.
Now supposing you don’t feel like a lot of action, well then, treat yourself to a massage in the hotel spa or rather weight lifting in the gym? Finally take some tennis lessons again, have a mini golf or ping-pong tournament with your kids? Still too much action? Then swim a few laps in the hotel pool with a view of Mount Teide and retire to your 62 sqm apartment. Even a genuine chef could run wild in this kitchen, it’s got everything (stove/oven, microwave, toaster, utensils– even knives that cut(!) -, dishwasher, washing machine).
Thus self-catering is no problem, Santa Ursula has various supermarkets, the little shop across the street from the hotel entrance offers fresh bread for breakfast. You will probably not need the dining table adjoining the kitchen, because your meal will taste so much better on the scenic terrace facing west. When the sun gets too hot, just open the marquee. If it is still too hot, you can take refuge in the little garden (20 sqm) on the entrance side full of flowers climbing up the lava-stone walls. If on certain days the ‘eternal spring’ is not as mild as it should be, just turn on the electric radiator on rollers.
Especially on weekends the hotel hosts events in the bar – folklore or live music and dancing. If you want to mingle and there is nothing on TV, have a drink at the bar and join the fun – btw – it is said that there is a great tango place with live music in downtown Puerto.
The outdoor pools, table tennis, mini-golf etc. on the premises are free of charge, tennis, the heated indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi, gym and massages are subject to fees.
