We wanted somewhere away from the beach resorts and chose La Orotava for its location. The hotel Rural Victoria was a real find. Room was fine, staff very friendly and helpful and food excellent - and all for a very reasonable price. Only minor drawback was the limited parking which meant driving round the very busy (narrow) streets if the few spaces were occupied. We would certainly book again and recommend it to others.
Quiet hotel: no 'entertainment' - no karaoke, no loud music - bliss. The hotel is not in a 'resort' area which was what we wanted.
Beautiful gardens: more extensive than you first realise. We found different bits on different days. Lovely.
Good location: If you hire a car to explore the island it is a good location. Good road up to the volcano (very wiggly but then all the roads up are). Only five minute easy drive to the main ring road. I don't know what it would be like to stay here without a car as we had one. You couldn't really walk much from the hotel. We did walk into the local town one day to the supermarket (ask at reception first as it's not obvious where it is).
Reception staff were all excellent at English - restaurant staff weren't as good but certainly adequate for our needs as the menu is in English.
Posh evening meal food (and the price to go with it) but delicious.
We stayed in a 'Junior suite' which had a ?king size bed, bathroom, lounge and balcony. I think the slightly cheaper rooms may just be a bedroom. We loved having the lounge to sit in after it got dark outside, it feels more like home than existing in just a bedroom like some hotels. The sofa was comfortable which almost seems like a point not worth mentioning but I have been extremely disappointed staying in many hotels by uncomfortable sofas. Private balcony looking onto trees.
If we went back to Tenerife we would definitely go back to this hotel - wouldn't need to think about it.
Nice hotel, superior over the expected ** hotel and price. Good and nice room with balcony, staff is very friendly, breakfast was sufficient for the rest of the day, internet is not included, I paid 25 euro per a week extra using Paypal. No special bar, drinks could be bought from reception.
This hotel is located in Canary's style traditional 19th century building, run by very friendly local people, who cook and serves delicious Spanish breakfast in cosy restaurant with mind blowing view. Room cleanness/comfort was very good in my opinion, condition of the hotel was great too.
I feel like I have known a lot more about Canary's Island culture and people by staying there for a change to holiday resorts that are mainly located in the South of the Island.
Very nice garden and pool. The hotel is 15 minutes walk from the city centre (on a hill), but you can come and go by taxi for only 3 euro. The staff is super friendly and they speak several languages. If you want to avoid the noise from beach hotels, and feel good by the pool, this one is perfect!
As a single woman traveller I had a great stay. I found the hotel staff welcoming, helpful and efficient. A small problem with the shower was fixed within minutes of my reporting it. My room was a good sized double room looking out onto a quiet back street with pleasant balcony. The hotel is spotlessly clean and recently re-decorated with a contemporary feel. I found the food in the restaurant offered a wide choice with good variation over the week. The waiters were polite and helpful. I used the lagoon type pool and sat out in the gardens when it was not too cool. This hotel is ideal for couples or singles wanting a quiet break... it is away from the noise of the centre of town with good sports facilities and excellent public transport links nearby. Walking into the centre takes about 15 minutes going down but longer coming up... the hotel is situated uphill from the main town. The wifi worked well in the reception area but not in individual rooms. I enjoyed my 9 days and felt relaxed and chilled at the end of my stay. This is the sixth time I have stayed at this hotel and look forward to returning.
