For more than 20 years, TUI, Germany’s leading tour operator, rewards hotels for their high environmental and social standard with the ‘TUI Umwelt Champion.
For more than 20 years, Tigaiga has been awarded !
Hotels need to have a valid sustainability certification, which reflects the environmental and social performance and is recognized by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), like e.g. Travelife, Earthcheck or Green Globe. Secondly the hotels need to achieve an average guest satisfaction value of 8 out of 10 for the environmental question ‘How do you rate the hotels measures to preserve the environment’. The ‘TUI Umwelt Champion’ offers customers an orientation when booking a holiday as these hotels are specially pointed out in brochures and at www.tui.com.

Now we offer the ideal accommodation for individualists, active people and for those who want to stay a little longer.
The Florasol is your vacation spot, very close to the Tigaiga. Here you can enjoy:
A SPACE advantage: the large area of 70 to 100 m2 makes the apartments ideal for a long vacation.
A SUN advantage: all apartments have their terraces to the southwest, which means sunshine from late morning until sunset.
A PANORAMA advantage: from all apartments you can enjoy a wonderful view of the swimming pool, in our subtropical garden and on the highest mountain in Spain, Pico de Teide.
A RELAX advantage: we are surrounded by a lush subtropical gardens, in a relatively quiet residential quarter of the otherwise bustling city of Puerto de la Cruz. No main street in front of the building disturbs the holiday enjoyment and yet about 10 minutes downhill to the old town or 15 minutes walk to beach.
A PERSONAL advantage: because of the small number of only 29 apartments and a reduced number of guests, a courteous and friendly team in a soothing atmosphere.
