“If in Puerto de la Cruz, stay here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2010

I was there for a smallish conference, so the room rates may have been particularly low (only about 85 E a night), but this place was great. There may be one place a bit nicer (based on outside appearance) in the area (La Botanica), but the Semiramis is in a better location. Great ocean view from every room, as other reviewers have noted. The rooms are big, quiet and the only disappointment was no free internet/wifi. You can pay for it, which I think is 6E a day. I believe you can purchase meal plans and our rate came with breakfast which was a very good buffet set up. The thing about Puerto Cruz is that there is not much to do there. If I was not at a meeting, I would definitely have rented a car to check out other parts of the island, which are supposedly more lively. So... if in Puerto Cruz, Semiramis is a completely solid choice for accommodation.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2010

Although this is not a 5 star hotel i would recommend it for the superb views of the ocean, good food and cliff top location a pleasent ten minute walk from the beach. The architecture is unattractive and the rooms are not spotless but since we booked through laterooms at a discount we definitely had value for money. It would not be suitable for those less mobile.
Puerto has much more rain than the south of the island but is greener and prettier.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2010

Unusual layout means reception is at road level, but the hotel is built on cliffs so rooms aere actually below. Large hotel, with 16 floors in total. Locally rated 5 star, but in reality a 'normal' European 4. Communal areas large and well sorted, though carpets a little past their best. Our room was sea-view. Very spacious and in decent condition. Cleaning and service were very good. We only ate breakfast, but this was a large buffet, extensively stocked and decent quality. Most guests German, but this is normal for the area and staff generally spoke good English and were very helpful. Hotel is in a pleasant part of the town and quiet, but a fair way from the old town area. Plenty of parking close by. If we'd paid top money we might have felt a little disappointed, but at the sort of rates generally available, it was first class.

Our booking was made direct with the hotel via the Internet and an initial deposit was taken via our credit card. On arrival at the hotel the reception desk staff tried to charge us the full amount, and said that the deposit was a commission for the booking agent. Only after a heated argument did they charge the correct amount that was indicated on our booking form. No apology was made for their error and we feel they were deliberately trying to overcharge us. In addition, This supposedly 5 star hotel was the worst we had stayed in of this rating and there are better cheaper hotels in Puerto de la Cruz.

We stayed here fo just under three weeks.

Although not really 5 star the hotel was certainly better than any 4 star I have stayed in in Puerto.

We took the Senator room upgrade which gave us a room on the 14th floor and dinner in the a la carte restaurant, good grills and excellent personal waiter service.

Sea views are tremendous.

Service was excellent.

I note other comments on wifi, this is available free on 17th floor, it worked for most of our stay but failed on the last two days and fixing it appeared to be a low priority, a technician will come next week.

Another reviewer commented on a walk to a beach nearby, this is well worth it and not half as strenuous as might be implied. Some bits are a bit uphill and strenuous however I am not that young and found it quite easy.

Overall the hotel was very good and the food excellent.

The best: views from the rooms & the pool of sea water..
The worst: the cleaning and the maintenance of access to the pool of sea water, some insects.

Excellent food and view, I liked the swimming pool near by the sea and the politely of the staff. The location of the hotel is perfect because you can find parking.
Unfortunately, the staff didn't spoke english good enough and the hotel not offer WiFi for free.
