Hotels Tenerife in ideal spots for vacations for kids and toddlers with parents.
Hotels Tenerife may amount to 400 by 2014, as some come and others go. The offer is big for an island of a mere size of 785 square miles only and, competition is tough.
So what are the tips to parents with kids for hotels of Tenerife?
A good Location is the main key.
Why is it a priority, always ?
Hotels and above all family accommodation for holidays must be in top spots with a car park or public transport nearby.
The more variety for things to do the better, as family beach vacations for every day would get boring.
Many prefer staying in a hub but, adults may object to ringing church bells; perhaps an issue with some of the small charming Tenerife Hotels, such as Hotel Monopol of Puerto Cruz or Hotel Quinta Roja of Garachico...
Contrary to the above, the modern beach hotel Hotel Turquesa which find listed under Puerto de la Cruz hotels further down on this page is outside the town hub. The Turquesa also allows for self catering by separate apartments besides regular hotel rooms, while its pool and children jungle gym are for all to be used.
Hotel El Parador the only hotel by Mount Teide may be interesting with our youngest off-springs. The cable cars nearby and snowmen in winter may be great fun, while to travel with toddlers by car on the mountain road is a joy ride.

By the way, it's convenient when soft sand beaches are not far from your hotel, Playing by smooth seashores allows toddlers to tumble about without getting hurt. Nevertheless, no need to live right by the beach as, it's good to look forward to get somewhere in life by different ways, also for the very young.
Antique hotels Tenerife North with nooks and crannies
Imagine a toddler playing hide and seek in one of the Puerto Cruz enchanting, antique hotels. There, it's exciting for the child to disappear from the lobby in a surrounding arcade of reception rooms..
It's great to race through them like that, just once.
They all have their own opening towards the hotel's central hall. My cheeky toddler grand child did that and he had so much fun.

Hotels Tenerife in El Medano
In el Medano, the only island hotel on stilts which is supposed to be torn down by government for being too close to the sea is the Tenerife beach hotel Hotel El Medano. It has rooms that are big enough to accommodate kids and has a seaside that they love.
Step out onto the beach from Hotel Playa Sur in el Medano which provides surf classes for kids, but not for beginners.
Prize giving to hotels on the biggest Canary Island
Hotel awards on Tenerife come and go, such as for the Gran Melia Palacio de Isora.
However, there is nothing like a hotel with a superb cuisine which isn't the only asset of the place, such as at the Abama Golf resort. Unfortunately, not enough hotels cater for toddler meals.
Last advice to be able to reserve the Tenerife family hotel of your choice
Book early, above all for high seasons, such as winter, Easter holidays or Tenerife carnival... Specials are available for low seasons.
Refrain from all hotels in Spain Tenerife which are too cheap. Rarely, such places are healthy for toddlers and little kids.
This is my own experience and those of good friends.
In my mind, the winner for family vacations with a toddler in the north of hotels Tenerife is my Number One choice Tenerife hotel right now and my best Tenerife toddler hotel in the north, by the way.
It's a hotel where you may get ready in your room for going out, while your child can play safely "childproof" in your own patio without falling off any walls, fences, you name it. And no coconuts may fall from a tree, either.
