My first time in Tenerife. Hotel Océano has been a perfect choice. Unique location. Nothing better than sleeping with the sound of the ocean and waking up with breathtaking view. Wonderful property with an exquisite taste in terms of furniture and decoration. My room was wide and perfect with a terrace. I loved breakfast with all genuine and natural products. Every evening I had dinner at La Marea restaurant with delicious food. SPA facilities met my needs. Staff was always ready to assist me and cheerful. The hotel has a special eye on details and discretion offered to its clients. I loved the pool and the park... and the drinks at the rooftop bar of course! I've rarely experienced all this in one hotel. My compliments to the management. .... Can't wait to come back!
This remains an outstanding hotel in an unbeatable location!
In 2018 I wrote a review of this hotel in which I emphasised how outstanding it was in multiple respects - and this review is intended simply to supplement that one. Having recently been lucky enough to return to the hotel, I should simply like to emphasise that it remains outstanding. Indeed, if possible (which I would have regarded as unlikely when I was last there!), it is now even better than before having undergone significant refurbishment improvements. Among the highlights of that refurbishment are a new building containing a new gym with brand new gym equipment, spacious rooms for exercise, yoga, pilates etc and an impressively newly resurfaced tennis court. The swimming pool has also been moved by 90° so that you now swim one length looking directly at the beautiful combination of sea, palm trees and mountains which make this place so unique. The staff remain exceptionally friendly, as is the impressive new manager of the hotel who is both very helpful to guests and also appears popular among the staff. Furthermore, the overall standard of the rooms, the dining room and the comfort that guests enjoy remains fantastic. Once again, I cannot recommend this place highly enough if you are after a good and healthy rest in a wonderful setting!
Great if you're looking for some quiet
The hotel is managed by German people, and guests are mainly Germans. This means that everything is new, clean and tidy and rooms are as immaculate as they can be. This also means that the restaurant cuisine is German - probably not to discombombulate the guests with the flaboyant Canarian recipes. With that said, let me get to what made worth to me being here - on top of all the rooms having Ocean view, live music events, bespoke readings (in German only) and the rooftop with an amazing view on Punta del Hidalgo: the Spanish personnel, who always went the extra mile to made me feel comfortable. Just as an example, the maitre-de-salle didn't hesitate an instant to personally prepare me a cocktail (an excellent Negroni sbagliato) because the bartender was already busy - muchisima gracias, Señora Gara, Usted es un ejemplo de profesionalidad ! I will definitely be back, and hopefully I will find the same Spanish personnel.
Almost like paradise..
Beautiful, quiet place to rest and enjoy the sun and sea. Yoga classes were excellent, food was good. Near the sea. All rooms have a balcony and view to the sea. No children around, no noisy restaurants. A perfect place in the middle of winter.
Where science and nature meet
If you are looking for a reasonably-priced situation where nobody bothers you, you can stare at the ocean for hours (and swim in it easily thanks to a seawater pool located just opposite the hotel), with a good spa that performs most treatments (including Ayurveda), and where the sky is almost permanently turquoise, this is the place for you. The staff is all kind and helpful and some of its members will go the extra mile to make you happy (Alexander at the reception, Raul, Riccardo and Valentina at the Spa, Ariane at the restaurant, Maria and Marieli at the medical center, just to mention a few). At Oceano, they take dieting and fasting seriously. They follow the nutrition school developed by Dr Franz Xaver Mayr, who was (rightly) convinced that bad diet was the root of many modern health problems. Which could have resulted in excessive medical supervision, except that it doesn’t - and the doctors take your weight only at the beginning and at the end of your stay, eliminating that holiday-ruining obsession (A special mention goes to Dr Kettenhuber for being someone that looks at human weaknesses with empathy and compassion and for giving me very practical advice on what to do at my return home!) This is also the place for you if you are looking for a protected venue but which you can at times leave and do your own things (like walking on the many pathways the area has to offer) though be warned that the only shops at walking distance are a bar, a pharmacy and a bank (and some fish restaurants). This is not the place for you if you are looking for a luxury service, spa, room, and so on. But then, as I said, Oceano is reasonably priced so that expectation would be unjustified. Some of the facilities are a little old but renovation works are starting in June 2019 and there will be a brand new treatment center in October (hopefully prices will not go up). The hotel’s natural surroundings are beautifully wild (black lavic stone, the Vulcan always in sight, the ocean’s waves lulling you to sleep), wisely reminding us that rather than a Mayr cure or any other treatment, the secret to solve our inner issues lies in a balanced relationship with ourselves as lucky guests of a stunning planet.
