Opposite the Botanical Gardens of Puerto de la Cruz and with views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Orotava Valley and Mount Tiede, the hotel's setting is peaceful and attractive. Step inside from the landscaped gardens and discover interiors that exude an impression of space and light, and are filled with rich and warming hues, marble floors and grand stairwells. Meanwhile, the cosy guestrooms prioritise comfort, while extending the living space onto furnished terraces to maximise privacy. This is your private corner of Tenerife, and the views from here are expansive and picturesque, particularly from the Penthouse Suites, which occupy the top floor offer spectacular views of Mount Teide. With its family-run ethos, attention to detail is key at Hotel Botanico, therefore you can expect an outstanding gastronomic experience in the four dining venues.

About Canary Islands

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Canary Islands includes a selection of four and five star beach resorts which cater for families and couples alike. The Canary Islands can be found sitting off the western coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. Warmed by year-round sunshine, the Canaries feature otherworldly landscapes of volcanic craters, lava deserts and cute coves with black-sand beaches. Meanwhile, steep hillsides and terraced farmland gives way to peaceful fishing villages and characterful old towns. In the west of the archipelago are the mountainous islands of Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera. Expect black-sand beaches and buzzing resorts along Tenerife's coastline whilst the interior is dominated by the dormant Mount Teide volcano. Meanwhile the three smaller islands remain relatively unspoiled, with landscapes including terraced hillsides, craggy cliffs and subtropical rainforests. The eastern isles consist of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, each with a unique atmosphere and plenty of attractions. Gran Canaria is home to sprawling resorts as well as stunning scenery with forests, mountains and sand dunes; Fuerteventura is an arid and sparsely populated island with a desert-like landscape and long stretches of white sand beaches; while Lanzarote is a rugged island where lava flows have solidified to create a lunar landscape which contrasts with sandy beaches and green valleys. Due to their location in the Atlantic Ocean just 60 miles away from the coast of Morocco, the Canary Islands' cultures fuse African, Latin American and European influences, creating a unique identity which is quite different to that of the Iberian Peninsula. Contrary to popular belief, there is no want for authenticity here....

Highlights of the Canary Islands

There is great variation between the different islands which make up the Canaries, with each destination offering much for visitors to enjoy during their luxury holiday. Tenerife: Teide National Park, an area surrounding the volcano with stunning natural landscapes. Traditional towns such as La Orotava and La Laguna. The Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Fuerteventura: Untouched white- and black-sand beaches which surround the island. Betancuria, the island's former capital which is now a picturesque town. Primitive stone dwellings in the village of Poblado de la Atalayita. Lanzarote: The Fire Mountains, a number of volcanoes which form part of Timanfaya National Park. The modern yet charming city of Arrecife. Teguise, an old-fashioned town which hosts a weekly market with folk dancing. Volcanic caves at Jameos del Agua. Gran Canaria: Picturesque towns and fishing villages such as Puerto do Mogán and Agaete. Undulating sand dunes at Maspalomas, a protected nature reserve. Botanical gardens in Tarifa. Cave complexes in the valley of Barranco de Guayadeque. Views of the volcanic crater at the Caledra de la Bandama. The old quarter of the island's capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. La Palma: Santa Cruz de la Palma, the island's colourful capital where you will find cobbled streets, buildings with pretty wooden balconies and a full-sized replica of Columbus' ship. Caldera de Taburiente National Park, set in a volcanic crater at the island's centre. Picturesque villages including El Paso which is still known for its silk production. El Hierro: The extensive network of walking trails which traverse the volcanic interior of the island, designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Natural seawater pools along the coastline, as well as excellent scuba diving opportunities. La Gomera: San Sebastián, the island's main town where Christopher Columbus stayed before sailing to the New Wold. Stunning natural scenery including terraced hillsides, subtropical rainforest, dramatic gorges, steep cliffs, picturesque coves and black-sand beaches. Garonjay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Gastronomy of the Canary Islands

Due to the geographical location, gastronomy in the Canary Islands incorporates elements of Spanish, African and Latin American cuisine. A staple of Canarian cuisine is fish, which may be grilled, baked, salted or dried in the sun, along with shellfish which is also abundant. Bananas and tropical fruits are all grown across the islands, whilst rum, Malvasía wine and goat's cheeses are also produced. Key ingredients include ‘Gofio’ (cornmeal which is used in bread and stews), ‘Mojo’ (a sauce which contains either coriander or chili peppers and is frequently served with fish and meat) and ‘Papas arrugadas’ (a kind of jacket potato which is cooked in salt water). Typical dishes include ‘Sancocho’ (boiled fish served with potatoes), ‘Puchero canario’ (a hearty stew made with meat and vegetables) and ‘Bienmesabe’ (an almond cream dessert).

Festivals on the Canary Islands

January to February: Canary Islands Music Festival. February: Carnival celebrations. March: Holiy week celebrations. 29 April: Festival of the Aborigines, April to May: Cheese Festivals, 30 May: Day of the Canary Islands, May/June: Corpus Christi celebrations, 14 to 15 June: Festival of Saint John, marking the beginning of summer. July: Festival of the patron saint of fisherman. July: Canary Islands Jazz festival. 14 to 15 August: Festival of Virgen del Candelaria.

Climate of the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands' year-round sunshine, clear skies and spring-like temperatures make them a suitable holiday destination for all seasons. Winters are mild with average temperatures of around 17 degrees, whilst summers are warm with temperatures of around 24 degrees. Most of the islands are cooler and wetter in the northeast thanks to the trade winds which prevent the temperatures from getting too hot in the summer.
