A small, family-run oasis of beauty and tranquillity set in delightful gardens in a leafy suburb of Puerto de la Cruz. Blending old fashioned charm and first-class service with state-of-the-art technology and an award-winning commitment to sustainability, this is a peach of a hotel.
Andrea Montgomery, DESTINATION EXPERT
The hotel stands alongside Park Taoro above the resort of Puerto de la Cruz with sweeping views across the north west coast and the verdant valley to Mount Teide and the Tigaiga Mountains. It’s a 15 minute walk downhill into the resort, beaches, and to the Loro Parque shuttle bus.
Style and Character
Owned by the Talg family for three generations, Hotel Tigaiga is a stylish, welcoming and comfortable hotel, which works in harmony with the beauty and serenity of its surroundings. The interior décor blurs the barrier between inside and out through the extensive use of glass and the colour coordination of furnishings, green for garden facing, blue for sea facing. There’s nothing state-of-the-art or wow about the style, it just works.
Service and Facilities
Friendly, informed and professional staff deliver exceptional service at every level of the hotel and display a genuine commitment to excellent customer service. The Tigaiga’s tour de force is its beautiful, botanic garden which has more palms than there are beds in the hotel, and where every specimen is recorded in a digital catalogue. Sun terraces and a heated swimming pool provide grandstand views, while massages and a sauna are available in a small room alongside.
Rooms continue the theme of maximising light and reflecting nature, with a full-length window incorporating doors to the balcony; eggshell walls and curtains to reflect the light; apple green fitted carpets that extend out to the balcony in the form of AstroTurf; and behind the sliding mirror in the en-suite, a window in the partition wall so you can see the outside while you shower. Comfortable twin beds have duvets, and above them, a giant photographic print of a Tenerife landscape. Balconies have partial sea views and look out over Mount Teide or face onto Park Taoro.
Food and Drink
Breakfast and dinner are served in the conservatory style Jardín restaurant. Breakfast is buffet service with a comprehensive selection of fresh fruits and juice; cold and hot dishes, cereals, bread and pastry choices. Unusually, and delightfully, dinner is table service with a set menu including meat, fish and vegetarian choices. Food is tasty, well prepared and presented, and uses locally-sourced ingredients. The wine list is predominantly local. Alongside the garden, the Tinguaro à la carte restaurant is also open to the public.
