Hotel Monopol, Puerto de la Cruz

We stayed at the Hotel Monopol in Puerto de la Cruz in August 2018. It is a bit of an institution, having been in the same family for 75 years. You might hear people describe it as ‘You know, the hotel that has the flowers on the steps’. And that is true for every morning there are fresh hibiscus flowers on the steps of the Monopole.

If you have a sense of humour and a love of the quirkier establishments, then this one is for you. It is ideally located and breakfast buffet is good but the rooms are a little tired and the older of the receptionists seems happy to leave his clients standing three deep at the desk while fiddling interminably with paper.
That is really a minor complaint however given the charm of this hotel. It may not be the shiniest or newest of Puerto de la Cruz’s accommodation options but it is one of the most characterful.

It still has its original wooden balconies and typical central courtyard although it is now covered, filled with palm trees and plants. Pictures of the founding family can be found around the hotel.
