Reserve rooms at the Seminar Hotel Semiramis in elite La Paz Puerto de la Cruz for a medical convention, for example.
Mind that a single person may feel lost in this big 4 star place which lacks a homely feel. Being in a crowd for a convention will make all the difference.
The panorama you get of the Martianez beach front from this town hotel on a slope above the sea is breathtaking. That's the case with or without a sundown.
Indeed, that's when the whole "cityscape" of Puerto de la Cruz is turned into a pink fairyland at dusk.
It must be borne in mind that this hotel is in the suburb of La Paz which is best for getting around with a car or public transport. Carretera Botánico/Vilanueva del Prado is part of a major bus route, about five minutes on foot from the hotel. It would also only take you five minutes to get to the Martianez coast if steps were leading down from the hotel.
However, the Calzada de Cabras is the only pedestrian way besides the main road Carretera Botánico.
Both require much climbing on the way up from downtown Puerto Cruz.
Not very pleasant for little old people or those with bad knees...
Below the hotel, spot skilled surfers on the Martianez surf beach.
There, also discover the sparkling lakes of the lush oasis of the Lago or Martianez lido.
This big Seminar Puerto Cruz hotel which can host a convention of 900 members is a modern tourist establishment with all usual amenities, such as air-conditioned accommodation. It has 287 practically furnished bedrooms. Its exterior which most prefer even for meals is enhanced by 2 swimming pools. There, many green tropical plants give privacy by contemporary garden furniture, such as settees made of cane or leisure couches with sunroofs.
The Semiramis has a playground and pool for kids. Cooking demonstrations may complement its restaurant and bar service. This Tenerife North seminar hotel had an exclusive nudist corner on its rooftop veranda. Perhaps, it's still there.
Its Thai wellness spa treatments include Aloe Vera, hot stone and chocolate massages, Reiki and more. Look out for promotions for as little as €20 per session...
Internet is to be used in all reception areas.
The close neighborhood of Hotel Semiramis reveals one of Agatha Christie's favorite walkways by today's Bougainvillea enhanced property walls. This quiet one way road leads straight down to another ocean view. There, Dragos, Bananas, Strelitzias and Palms frame luxury Tenerife villas.
Watch the occasional paragliders there. They fly so low that they almost knock at the hotel's walls and touch down where Mrs.Christie loved relaxing so much.
There was talk about opening up again the access to an ancient saltwater swimming pool on an elevated deck in the Atlantic. This was once connected with the area of the Semiramis. In case, it hasn't materialized yet, not to worry, the hotel has enough good facilities to enjoy water and sun.
At the end of the road of the Semiramis hotel is the access to the banana trail towards Playa Bollullo. It's a scenic somewhat adventurous track.
Contrary to that, take a leisure walk of about 20 minutes to the mall of the Martianez shopping center down the steps of the Calzada Martianez. Mind, the luxury former Spar supermarket Sumo now Coviran is in Calle Aceviño 2, only 3-4 minutes from the Semiramis Hotel after crossing the beautiful La Paz Look-out depicted beside.
