Carrefour Tenerife with insider experience and some facts.

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape

Carrefour Tenerife main stores are only in two places in Tenerife.

I have been to both.

There is no Carrefour by Alcampo at La Laguna contrary to what one hears in the Internet.

When talking to Carrefour I was assured that they only have 2 shops in Tenerife.

What wasn't said is, if there were any Carrefour convenience stores for fresh food. I will come back to this interesting topic below...

The Carrefour Santa Cruz City branch has moved.

It has moved from Avda.3 de Mayo to
CC Centro Comercial Meridiano
with easy free underground parking at
Av Manuel Hermoso Rojas 16
It's still very close to Avda.3 de Mayo and

Spain

I saw Carrefour Tenerife at Christmas, once, when its
decoration was so beautiful.

Carrefour Tenerife Spain in Añaza has ample parking which is ideal to go there with your own or your rented car.

Once, a friend and I took a bus
back from Añaza Carrefour into
Santa Cruz which means it can be done, although, it was a hot day and, no shelter was at this Añaza bus stop.

The 2 story 'Megastore' Carrefour in Añaza is very big.
It's on the TF1 freeway to South Tenerife, less than 10 minutes by car at exit 5,9 km about 16 km from Santa Cruz capital to whose district it belongs to. More on Santa Cruz municipality in here ...

Carrefour sells just about everything from motor oil to big furniture or televisions.

The Santa Cruz Carrefour branch

Somebody said that Carrefour Tenerife is a lot like Asda. I have been to Asda in Bournemouth UK which was not like Carrefour, at all. A few years ago, a friend recommended Carrefour at the Tenerife capital when I needed a couch and told me that I would be surprised how cheap this store is. First, I went to its smaller branch directly in the Santa Cruz city near the new sky scraper Corte Inglés.

What about my sofa?

Quality and price of the Careefour sofa were darn tempting but, I wanted a big sleeper couch. Anyway, there wasn't much of a choice for sofas a that time in that Carrefour branch and I didn't find what I wanted at Carrefour Añaza, either.

By the way, after having combed through just about every furniture outlet from the capital right down to Icod de los Vinos (which is interesting in this respect also while comparing with Carrefour) not finding the right thing at Carrefour wasn't surprising.

Where did I find the sofa Carrefour didn't have?

I bought a smashing corner unit couch 2m x1,60m which I needed for a holiday home in Tenerife at Trio Moebel (trio möbel) at El Sauzal for € 800 in 2004. This included delivery and assembling.

Read all details about this versatile sleeper couch sofa-cama, all data of its shop and, why this peace of quality furniture was a best buy for me which stood the test of time...

Carrefour Tenerife in the capital is somehow similar to Alcampo at La Laguna or at La Orotava by the TF5 freeway. Only, it's bigger.

Carrefour convenience stores

There was talk about Carrefour convenience stores for fresh produce in 2006. Please, mind that Carrefour has all sorts of outlets in other countries.

I haven't seen any on Tenerife Island. Mind that Alcampo has many such stores by petrol stations, although not called by that name. How can Carrefour fight the system if Mercadona supermarket couldn't when it started to build a store behind my building in Los Realejos? An interesting article on Carrefour business Spain where Tenerife is part of was published, some time back.

Carrefour free wifi Internet connection

By February 2011 Carrefour had the only Tenerife shopping malls with free Internet besides Centro Comercial Meridiano near the new Corte Inglés megastores of Santa Cruz. However, don't expect a fast service with Carrefour's wifi for free.
