The staff wouldn’t let me into the restaurant without long trousers. They offered me 2 pairs of chinos, one too big & one too small. Meanwhile guests in the restaurant with t shirts & stone washed jeans!!!! It’s 2022!!!! Food in the restaurant average at best. This resort could be 5 star but it isn’t.
A Canarian Gem!
After reading some negative reviews of the hotel it was with a degree of trepidation that we set out for our two week holiday. We need not have worried! Hotel Jardin Tecina was wonderful and everything about it – location, food, grounds, facilities – exceeded our expectations & was better than the photos suggested. We found the sporting facilities to be among the best that we’ve encountered at any hotel. We appreciated the rustic charm of the Canarian village-style rooms & we had done our research & knew that the hotel was for those holidaymakers looking for tranquil surroundings. We found the staff to be helpful & professional & they would take time out to exchange greetings of “hola” each day. We were impressed by being able to check-in to the hotel at the ferry port in Los Cristianos, Tenerife, thereby avoiding queuing in reception on arrival & being able to go straight to our room with the supplied key card, with our luggage arriving shortly afterwards. The food at the breakfast buffet was plentiful, varied and, in our opinion, good quality. There were freshly cooked omelettes, an outdoor pancake station & a smoothie bar. There was an array of fruits, cold cuts, cheeses, yoghurts, breads, pastries, speciality teas and even cava on offer. We also dined at the hotel on three evenings & enjoyed the variety of food & the service. We were staying on a bed & breakfast arrangement and had read beforehand that it was an easy 10-15 minute walk into the fishing village of Playa Santiago (with the benefit of the cliffside lift!). There was a good choice of reasonably priced restaurants and bars to sample there, (even if some of them were closed for their own holidays!). We were fortunate enough to sample Tasca Enyesque, La Chalana, La Cuevita, Pizzeria La Marea, & our favourite Kuss. We also enjoyed the variety of activities you could participate in – we loved the star gazing walk with Jurgen, and the petanque, table tennis, mini golf & paddle tennis with the animation team – a big shout out to Enzo & Daniela – you are the best! We would have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Jardin Tecina and hope to return in the future.
Overpriced, stuffy and no vibe
On the upside: the architecture is pretty good. On the downside: the staff are unhappy and lack the professionalism to keep this to themselves. There is also a lot of tackiness: food ads line the way to the beach, but there is no beach, just spiky rocks that are impossible to swim from. This could have been developed, but I have the sense that the hotel wants to corral its guests inside. These sorts of places are mass market but not usually at this price point. Price quality ratio is poor. Save your money and go somewhere else with a bit more vibe.
the whole experience was a nightmare, everything packed, dirty, old, rooms (we pay more for sea view but for nothing )was terrible, We left that comments at the hotel (guest relation)and they say they call me back … I’m still waiting. I never come back & I do not recommend this hotel never
Where Paradise Truly Is
Once again, we are thrilled with this beautiful hotel located in paradise. We were most looking forward to Anne-Tina's wonderful piano music in the Bar Kristina. And now we are sitting here and can hardly believe our luck to be able to listen to Anne-Tina and to disappear into another sphere and simply enjoy! We have admired so many piano virtuosos all over the world, but Anne-Tina is truly the crowning glory of musical creation and we are allowed to share in it, for which we are extremely grateful! This is a perfect symbiosis of paradisiacal hotel facilities, excellent food and a treat for the audiovisual senses. As long as Anne-Tina plays here, we will keep coming back or follow her wherever she makes the atmosphere resound.
