A fantastic location in Puerto de la Cruz:

Each room is spacious and bright, with a unique and elegant character, where every detail makes a difference.

El Tope's staff will attend to your needs at the swimming pool bar and will ensure that you have everything you require while you relax under the sun.

We keep returning

I think that this is the sixth time that me and my partner have stayed at El Tope. There are many reasons we keep coming back. Some of these mightn't mean it's best for you, but it certainly works for us. The staff are consistently welcoming, friendly, courteous and helpful - the cleaners, reception, bar and restaurant - all deserve a mention for their demeanour and effort.
The pool is small by other hotels standards, but certainly big enough for a refreshing dip and a bit of exercise. We find the food - we go all inclusive - to be of a standard that you really don't have to eat out unless you're craving a change of surroundings. Of particular note, the grill chef offers a choice of cooked to order fish or meat option that changes every night. I also like the fresh soups they prepare everyday - definitely not just made with what's left over from the day before. Fresh fruit, salad and local/Spanish specialities are also a treat, especially in November!
Puerto de la Cruz isn't overly busy, but it's real Spain and there are plenty of shops and restaurants to keep you entertained and interested. The nearest (well stocked) supermarket is less than 5 minutes walk away, and the seafront about 5 minutes further.
I think it's worth paying a little extra for a seaview or private veranda room, but it's certainly not essential. The rooms we've had have been consistently clean, spacious and well maintained.
Entertainment - well there's no pool area 'animacion' or bangin out music - which we really appreciate - but if you do want activity leaders, then this mightn't be the place for you. I'm probably a little fussy regarding evening entertainment, so I'll just say that there is an act on each night, but I consider it background music whilst enjoying a drink, rather than something that really grabs my attention. This is a great place to stay if you want to relax, unwind and not have to try to hard. It mightn't tick all of your boxes, but it certainly ticks ours.

Lovely Hotel

We are at this hotel now and loving it, when we arrived we had a room on -3 floor there was a problem with the lock so we couldn't get in, the sweet ladies on reception tried to unlock to no avail so gave us an upgrade to a huge sea view room with a large terrace on level 1 at, no extra cost, we are here bed and breakfast so can't comment on all inclusive but there is a huge selection at breakfast to choose from, the hotel is spotlessly clean all the staff are friendly and helpful and as I said before the two ladies on reception are lovely

Lovely place to stay in Puerto de la Cruz

We loved our stay at El tope! Staff were all friendly and helpful, special mention to Martin, Pedro and Ivan who were all lovely and very helpful, and helped a lot despite our very limited Spanish. Something to work on for next time for us! Whole hotel, room and pool were spotlessly clean, lovely view from the room, we were in a sea view room on the 6th floor and it was exactly as pictured in the listing. Only issue we saw was quite a few options in the buffet had nuts in them but weren’t clearly labelled so wouldn’t be ideal for someone with a nut allergy, all fine for us however. We were half board and the breakfast and dinner buffets were good, better than you would expect from a traditional all inclusive buffet. Quite steep hill to reach the hotel but that seems to be the standard in the area and didn’t bother us, resulted in lovely views in the hotel so can’t complain. The pool area was well maintained, not too busy and very relaxing to lounge by with a cocktail. Lovely all round!

Definitely worth it

We came here and its lovely! Perfect location (hill isnt too bad) yes food is exactly what you’d expect from an all inclusive and we did buy from a holiday site as a bundle so yes the room isnt quite what you see on the website but still me and my girlfriend absolutely love it here!

The worst hotel EVER. Not even a one star

Hand on heart this is the WORST hotel we have ever stayed at. We were treated like 2nd class citizens from the get go. We arrived at 10pm after a delayed tui flight. When I enquired about food at check in I was directed to the local Burger King. We were then directed to our rooms. In the basement (-3) dark and dingey corridors which smelt of damp. We passed a dead coackroach on the stairs (it remained there for 3 days) the room itself was large - it smelt of damp and when we pulled the curtain back we were horrified to discover no balcony and over looking the road. I killed 3 bugs in the bathroom before I went to bed. Breakfast choice was plentiful - fruit, cereal pastries salads cheeses cold meats. Hot food pretty disgusting. The scrambled eggs were sweet, the English sausages were boiled but anything German was cooked properly. The pool was not heated, which wasn’t a problem given how hot the weather was, not really suitable for little kids as the shallow area was deep. Plenty of sun loungers and a very attentive lifeguard who assisted with parasols. The pool bar was inside. Which is where you had to get drinks from. My child got shouted at to get out as her feet were wet from the pool by the very rude bar staff. We weren’t all inclusive. Thank god. The pool snacks were put out in the morning and left there allllll day (fries, pizza, hot dogs chicken nuggets) We chose not to eat in the restaurant in the evening as there was plenty of choice a 5 min walk away so can’t comment on that. The entertainment at night was bloody dire. One night a man playing along to 80s music on his sax and another night a woman who couldn’t play the harp. The final straw was a woman who couldn’t sing for toffee but get it a good shot. The cleaning staff were lovely, very friendly and can’t fault them. It’s funny though it wasn’t until our last day we discovered if you didn’t have a room in the basement you got to walk up a marble staircase to your room! I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to my worst enemy - I don’t hate anyone enough to. Suprised it’s a tui hotel tbh
