Hotel San Roque, Garachico

With its eight double rooms, eight duplexes and four suites all exquisitely decorated with lashings of contemporary stylings, you would be forgiven for not immediately recognising the history of this building: an 18th century mansion built by a descendant of the aristocratic founder of the port and town of Garachico, which the Carayon family renovated in 1992. And when you think about the word 'renovation', it literally means 'renewing'. You couldn't better describe the way the Carayons have restored what is now Hotel San Roque. It has some of the most stunning room decors we have seen for some time - so clean and effortlessly simple, with a mighty fine sheen, and still respects the original architecture and structure.

Every room, not just suites, contains a jacuzzi-bath and mod cons such as satellite TV and wi-fi internet. A large emphasis has been placed on selected designers of the furniture and chairs. In different rooms and suites, you will find ones by feted designers Rennie Mackintosh, Eileen Gray and Mies Van Der Rohe. There are duplexes with spiral staircases and also two cases of interconnecting double rooms, providing a great alternative to the suites for families, allowing 2 adults and up to 3 children to stay together.

The owners' love of art is clear for all to see, with the Miquel Navarro "sentry" fountain structure you see on one of the patios to your left, aliminium-made and welded without screws, the submarine-like window and ceiling design by Carmen Calvo, and the various carefully-chosen paintings.

Indeed we did already mention two patios: one functions as a lounge and bar area where many guests like to enjoy a coffee or an aperitif. 6pm aperitifs are something of a tradition here; the commencement of which is seemingly signalled by the sounding of the local church bells. The other patio is home to a very elegant swimming pool with solar heating.

Exclusive to hotel guests, the Anturium Restaurant, just next door to the swimming pool patio, serves local produce with cuisine based on a wide selection of local cheeses, fish and tropical fruits, supplemented by imported produce where necessary. Local wines are available. The steady hand of renowned Chef Danny Nielsen achieves well-balanced dishes and a fusion of Canarian and Mediterranean cooking. Due to the consistent Canarian climate, most days allow guests to enjoy this outside next to the pool.

The Hoffmann Bar is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink after dinner in an intimate and elegant atmosphere.

We were very pleased with our choice of hotel in Tenerife...San Roque in Garachico. We were made very welcome, the rooms were very comfortable and well serviced....even clothes left lying around were folded or hung up in the wardrobe! The old mansion house has been thoughtfully renovated with lots of seating/reading areas around the open courtyard or on the balcony over looking the courtyard. The pool area was equally lovely although the weather wasn't too good while we were there so we didn't swim at all. However it was great having breakfast sitting around the pool each morning. Excellent varied buffet for breakfast. A la Carte or set menu for dinner.

If you haven't been to Tenerife before be aware the hair pin bends on the roads are very times challenging but the views are breath taking.

We had fun. Excellent walks up by the Caldera and volcano.

Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:

This is a gem. A very small hotel with real atmosphere and a quiet modicum of luxury. The village is a little remote and a good 2 hour drive from the [South] airport, but it is well worth it. The rooms are spacious and surround two pretty courtyards. Dinner is served around the swimming pool and is a set menu each day. A drive to the popular resorts on the island will convince any visitor that they were wise to choose San Roque.Mike & Anne, London

This hotel is extremely well located as Garachico is very tranquil and beautiful town. The staff and the owners of the Hotel are all very cordial and they seem to be like a very tight family. The rooms are excellent and the food is wonderful.

Top hotel. Lovely room (junior suite), great food, service and staff absolutely spot on and good location in the middle of the village.
