Millions of visitors descend upon Tenerife every year to enjoy its idyllic weather, clean air and knockout natural scenery – including Mount Teide, a volcano and the highest peak in Spain. For those who’d rather save their vacation euros for cocktails on the beach and ocean adventures on the largest of the Canary Islands, here are the top budget hotels on Tenerife.

Santa Barbara Golf and Ocean Club

This well-maintained beachfront hotel in Golf del Sur wows with its big heated pool – and adjoining hot tub and pool bar – overlooking the Atlantic. Nightly entertainment and genuinely friendly staff are other big perks. Santa Barbara’s studios, apartments and villas are nicely set up with kitchenettes and wifi signal boosters. Many guests book for a few nights but end up staying for a month or more, while others use the hotel as their winter crash pad.

Hotel Tropical Park

Fresh from a 2017 renovation, Hotel Tropical Park is a spotless, bright choice in quiet Costa Adeje – about a 20-minute drive from Playa de las Americas. Rooms range from one- to three-bedroom apartments, all with well-stocked open kitchens. Upgrade to get extras such as washing machines and dishwashers. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from a pebble beach, and on-site amenities include a heated pool, themed buffets, squash and tennis courts and at night, singers, dancers, jugglers, a disco and other entertainment.

Beverly Hills

The stacked whitewashed buildings of this mid-range resort are visually appealing and modelled on the pueblos blancos of southern Spain. Room decor is rarely a concern for Beverly Hills guests, who are more interested in the hotel’s facilities – such as the heated pools, bowling alley, squash court and fun-loving animation squad. Beverly Hills is a 10-minute walk from the beach and Los Cristianos, a low-key tourist area that retains some vestige of its former life as a fishing village.

Catalonia Oro Negro

Next to Golf Las Americas, the 269-room Catalonia Oro Negro is a favourite with young families, older couples and retiree friend groups. While not a beachfront location, Oro Negro has a casual, hang-out-all-day vibe throughout the hotel – especially at the heated pool and adjacent solarium. Take advantage of the non-stop roster of activities, from pétanque, shuffleboard and water aerobics to bingo, mini discos and magic shows.

Coral California

Formerly the Primecomfort California, the Coral is a bright and cheery aparthotel complex for adults. The hotel isn’t on the water, but the good location puts you about a 10-minute walk from sandy Playa de las Americas beaches. Restaurants, chip shops, pubs, excursion companies and supermarkets – perfect for the self-caterer – are also nearby.

Hovima Club Atlantis

The quiet and budget-friendly Hovima Club Atlantis is a solid pick for families and couples looking for a pleasant and well-located hotel. The apartment-style rooms offer basic decor, but all have kitchenettes for self-catering and most have sea views. The chilled pool scene features a trio of pools along with an all-day pool bar. The hotel is a short uphill climb from the beach esplanade and Puerto Colon marina, meaning bars, restaurants, markets and water-sports outfitters are all within a stone’s throw.

    Regency Torviscas Apartment and Suites is a 90-unit hotel complex built around an inviting pool courtyard with a palapa-roofed pool bar, and offers a playground and sea views. The sea is about a mile away, but the hotel offsets its far-side-of-the-highway location with attractive rates, a free shuttle and on-site amenities such as a spa, games room and Danish bakery. Apartments come with terraces or balconies, plus in-room kitchens for easy self-catering – and there’s a supermarket just three minutes away on foot.

    Hotel Sun Holidays

    With a fantastic location on a pedestrian street near the beach, this budget hotel has a lot of appeal for travellers looking for value and views – of the sea and the Teide volcano, in this case. A swimming pool and sun terrace make up the shared amenities, while rooms range from singles to studio apartments. While Tenerife’s tourism centre has shifted to the south in recent years, Puerto de la Cruz was the island’s first major tourist destination. There’s many attractions beyond the town’s safe and stunning beaches, including the archaeological museum and 18th-century botanical gardens.

    Sunset Bay Club by Diamond Resorts

    A 10-minute walk from Playa de Torviscas, the family-friendly Sunset Bay Club is convenient for restaurants, takeout spots, supermarkets and bars. Its 200+ kitchen-equipped apartments – studios and one- or two-bedroom flats, some of which are duplexes – are arranged around two lovely pools and a pool bar. All in all, it’s a popular pick with tidy rooms, a friendly atmosphere and reasonable rates.

    RF Astoria

    This small, adults-only hotel in Puerto de la Cruz is a nice alternative to the big-box resorts so common in Tenerife – there’s no poolside animation, thumping bass or hyper little ones here. In fact, the simple, serene property looks and feels like an affordable hotel in mainland Spain. The apartment-style rooms have kitchen areas, daily housekeeping and balconies opening up to the palm-tree-lined street below. RF Astoria’s wonderful central location has all manners of conveniences nearby, such as restaurants, bars, bakeries, tour companies, shady squares, banks and supermarkets.
