Hotel Sol Puerto Playa

... just 150 meters from Playa Jardín

The Hotel Sol Puerto Playa is an ideal place for a peaceful stay and to enjoy the nearby towns on the north of the island. It is a cosmopolitan, functional hotel, with everything you need for relaxing but in turn active holidays visiting the island.

The Hotel Sol Puerto Playa’s proximity to the Plaza del Charco, Loro Parque and Playa Jardín (just 2 minutes away) is particularly convenient, as well as other iconic places in Puerto de la Cruz.


Common Areas and General Facilities at the Hotel Sol Puerto Playa

The reception area leads to an open area which connects with the cafeteria, the Lounge Bar. The decoration in general gives a very beachy feel.

The performances which are put on in the hotel are of a public nature, as anyone can attend and enjoy them. There are two live music shows each week and the rest of week there is background music.

The main restaurant opens for breakfast from 7am to 10am, and the schedule for dinner is 7pm to 10pm (6pm to 9:30pm in winter).

In all of the communal areas of the hotel you will find beautiful colourful paintings. They are all in line with the relaxed, fresh, maritime feel of the privileged area where the hotel is located.

There is a relaxation and reading area near the cafeteria – the pool bar (open from 11am to 11pm). There you have the option of lunching on light fast food (like snacks or pasta) which is varied and very well priced – perfect for spending a while happily in the pool.

In the corner of the reading/waiting area, near the window with views of the street there is an old telephone exchange which was the original one in the hotel.

The pool has Balinese beds, hammocks, deck chairs and seats so that anyone who doesn’t want to go to the beach (which is less than 150m from the hotel) can relax in peace.

There is a hammock in the pool which has had great approval, as whoever lies there always gives the impression of absolute relaxation. From when we started the visit right up to when we finished, a girl was peacefully lying there enjoying her relaxation in the shade J

On the lower floor of the hotel building (which can be seen from the pool) they have put some vinyls which represent the continuity of the sea which is just behind the Sol Puerto Playa. In the near future the area will be adapted to accommodate a terrace with live music.


Rooms at the Sol Puerto Playa

The Hotel Sol Puerto Playa has 183 rooms, which from October 2015 have been completely refurbished. They are large, light rooms with the option of fitting a third person inside. The views of the sea from the balcony, and even from the room itself, are wide as the hotel is almost on the beach. All rooms have air conditioning, among other services.

From the balcony you can see Punta Brava, and if you want to leave the door open you will be able to hear the sea at night. Personally I find the sound of waves very relaxing … You can see a whole corner of the north coast of Tenerife, from Teno to Hidalgo. The sunset is spectacular, combining with the silhouette of the island of La Palma; panoramic views rivalled by very few hotels on the island.

When we visited in September they were in the process of refurbishing, so the photos of the rooms probably won’t coincide with what you’ll find when you stay.

The opposite view from the rooms with sea view gives a wide oversight of the valley and some of the towns on Tenerife’s north coast, from the astrophysical observatory in Izana, the arsenal in Puerto, the Teide and the mountains in general … Who offers more than that?


Getting to the Sol Puerto Playa

The Hotel Sol Puerto Playa is located in Puerto de la Cruz. If you head towards the Playa Jardín and turn right when you get to the Castle, the hotel will be on the right-hand side of the road, but you have to continue through the Club Martiánez pool area and on the first street on the right you will find the main entrance to the Hotel Sol Puerto Playa. Parking in the area can be tricky at times, so when you find a space, park well.
