Playa De Las Americas V Los Cristianos


So trying to decide where to holiday this Summer. Will be travelling the first 2 weeks in August with my boyfriend, we are in our thirties.

I have been looking at either Los Cristianos or Playa De Las Americas, I have looked up on google maps and can see they are right beside each other, I like the fact there is the promenade along the beach with shops, bars restaurants all along here. The beach in both areas looks lovely that’s why I have narrowed it down to these two as the beach in Puerto De La Cruz doesn’t look as nice.

We aren’t looking for nightclubs that open til 6 in the morning, generally like a nice meal and few drinks in a good pub with live band / good music.

I want a nice clean self-catering apartment as we don’t spend much time in apartment as out in the sun most of the day.

I would appreciate any feedback / opinions on where to stay etc.?

What are the prices like in Tenerife, suppose like all holiday destinations it varies?

Thanks in advance

Either PDLA or LC is fine, or even Costa Adeje. As you have correctly said they are all next to each other. Food is cheap enough to eat out without breaking the bank. You can get a breakfast with change out of a fiver.

For your best options on accommodation I'd use Google as your search engine and see what websites it offers with availability. I wouldn't leave it too late to book with the school being off in August.

IMO Los Cristianos is slightly cheaper than Las Americas (well the upmarket end around the Mare Nostrum) and the accommodation in Los Cris is again my opinion generally geared towards families and the more mature tourist. There are a good selection of bars and restaurants but I think for 30 somethings you would prefer Las Americas. This map tenerifetravel.com/maps/southtenerife_large.… will show you accommodation and I would suggest somewhere in ref C/D8 may suit. or even D7 but not Columbus as that will be full of clubbers.

Hi Jessica,

it has been a long time sine we went to Los Cristianos or Las Americas but I would pick LC and it is only a short walk to PDLA.

I would not rule PDLC out because of the beach because we used the Lido for the first time last week and it was excellent.
