In the middle of the small town charming Garachico at the main square you find this special (boutique) hotel. It a old farmhouse respectfull transformed into a nice hotel. The rooms are spacious and quiet although you’re at the city ‘center’. The beds are good. Breakfast is fine, you can eat inside or with good weather outside at the terrace.

Outside a the main square you find some fine restaurants and a great bar-kiosk

Great location in the central square close to several restaurants and the sea front.

We had a smallish room with ensu it's, which felt slightly dated in terms of the tiling and whb.

The hotel has a great ambience with a small bar and lounge sofas, chairs around the inner courtyard.

The hotel has a small souvenir shop for guests and tourists. It is located close to a small public car park behind the local Council offices which we managed to find a space on both evenings we stayed. Parking otherwise is wherever you can find a spot on the streets. Garachico is a quaint local town whose unfortunate past seems well behind it. It was part of our tour if the island and was a good location to visit La Orotavo anthem mountainous coastal road to the west. Additionally ere is a golf course within a 10-15 minute drive, apparently e only one designed by Severaino Ballesteros in the whole of the Canary Islands.

A great base for a few days in this area.

We ate at a local restaurant on the sea front one night recommended by the hotel which was very good and an even better restaurant in a hotel called San Roq, where the service was to an even higher standard. Both were within a couple of hundred yards.

Great quiet location with a few good choices for an evening meal in easy walking distance.

The hotel has a small roof top leisure facility and push bikes (not sure if there is a charge for the bikes).

Hope this helps.

Room tip: Most rooms are individual and so worth checking out the website.

Garachico should be your destination on Tenerife -- waaaay more scenic than Guimar or Santa Cruz or La Laguna, and waaaay more charming. This hotel is right smack dab in the middle of town, and has gobs of historic charm. The staff was attentive, and gave us good advice on restaurants and public transportation. Our only complaint: stuffy room (not cold enough outside for heat, not warm enough outside for a/c), but that's the only thing we can think of, but we just opened a window (fancy that!).

Room tip: Ask for a room in the back -- front side faces the main square, and depending on the time of year, can get noisy.

If you want the usual things from Tenerife, like late night bars and lots of holiday makers, don't come to the La Quinta Roja hotel or Garachico. Its a very smart and elegant place that is sure to leave you calm, relaxed and without hassle. The hotel staff were very good and unobtrusive and the rooms had a charm and very clean.

Despite not serving dinner in the hotel, this was a plus rather and negative as there are at least 2 weeks worth of good eating places without having to visit the same one twice. Breakfast was good and we ate in the courtyard observing several locals having a morning walk around the square next to us.

Although they have no parking of their own, we had a small hire car and found no problem. Go straight to the small car park across the square (access goes up and around the back of the police station) and there is always space there.

Places we found especially good to eat was the small Tapas bar attached to the hotel and another small restaurant "Candelaria La Cocinera in Calle el Sol 19 at the top of hill next to the cycle shop. Los Pinos behind the hotel and the coffee shop in the arcade sort of place on the front were also good.

If you walk out of Garachico going north along the seafront you come to a smart marina which had a photo shoot going on while we were there. Another walk well worth doing is up the hill and along the back of the town overlooking it. You can see how the locals live as well.

A great weeks break for a couple but not for kids !!

Room tip: Room 101 can be noisy

We stayed at Quinta Roja during a particularly bad weather pattern and thus that does have some effect on my review, but a hotel is for 365 days of a year, not just the sunny ones!

The hotel is a beautifully restored old building on the main square in this lovely little town. We had worried that there might be ambient noise from the square, but this was not so. There is a clock that strikes every half hour, but it only works between 7am to 11pm and so all is silent at night. Apparently many restrictions have been put upon the hotel’s rebuild. We had what should have been a marvellous room on the second floor with a double aspect: 203. Only the top 1/3 of the windows on the side of the town square has any glass, everything else is old, traditional wooden shutters. Beautiful structures but sadly they did not keep out the wind which howled through the room on our first few nights. We had to keep these shutters taped and closed for the majority of our stay which meant the room was extremely dark, cold and depressing. The only lighting came from the bedside lamps and 3 low voltage lamps. We were provided with another but this did absolutely nothing to help the general ambience or overall light level in the room. Naturally we discussed this with the manager who could not understand our distress. Of course she has no responsibiltiy for the weather but the subsequent dreariness of the room is not our fault! Whenever we returned to our room throughout our stay the shutters had been closed, scanty curtains drawn and the insignificant lights switched on. Fine in hot weather perhaps but simply depressing during our stay. We loved the wood work and ceilings, but just felt that modern technology and a good interior lighting design could have improved things considerably whilst still keeping the style.
There were several other factors generally found in 4* hotel that we discussed with the manager including the very basic toiletries provided (some were even labeled “basic”), provision of only 3 coffee pods per visit- we were staying a week and felt this was penalizing us, however after discussion we did get 2 per day, poor hair dryer (which I am convinced will be changed when bathrooms are updated). The beds are two singles placed together: not zipped or with a topper which would help tremendously. I am aware that several guests moaned amongst themselves about this; few people dare to be truthful, but if no one complains nothing can be changed. The breakfast room was as dark as our bedroom. There is a pleasant outdoor seating area but the weather did not encourage one to go out there; indoors the lighting, again, was extremely poor. This might have proved a romantic evening setting but it was not appropriate at breakfast time. The bar area was extremely underused as there was no atmosphere.
So much potential in this hotel, but please listen to your guests!! Some of us are extremely well travelled and also experienced in many business aspects. I am fully aware that sunny, bright days would have put us all in a better frame of mind, but a hotel is for all seasons even on Tenerife! First impressions count tremendously.
