Getting the annual summer holiday right is important. It’s something most of us really look forward to and work hard for! Make sure you book the ideal holiday to Tenerife with this quick and handy guide to choosing the perfect package for you.

First of all, you need to make sure you book the right kind of holiday deal. This means deciding whether you want a room-only rate, bed and breakfast, half-board or all-inclusive package. All have their pros and cons so it really depends on what kind of holidaymaker you are.

If you’re the type who is happy lounging by the pool with a good book for most of the day, a half-board deal could be ideal for you. Large families can find all-inclusive packages quite handy, because it’s much easier to keep an eye on finances this way and entertainment suitable for kids is often included. If you prefer to be out and about discovering new beaches, different restaurants and going on day trips, a bed and breakfast option is likely to be the right fit for you. Groups of friends often prefer self-catering or room only packages, particularly if you’re all about going out partying and your hotel is simply somewhere for you to crash out at night.

Once you’ve decided on the type of package holiday you want, getting the accommodation right is the next step. For half board packages, the Vulcano Hotel Tenerife in Playa De Las Americas is a good option, and is particularly recommended if you’re a couple looking for peaceful accommodation. There are hotels and apartments to suit all packages in Tenerife, so ask your travel agent for recommendations and use sites such as Trip Advisor to find somewhere that’s going to cater for the type of holiday you want.

When it comes to when to visit Tenerife, it’s not called the ‘island of eternal spring’ for nothing! Mild and dry most of the year round, the summer sees highs of 30ºC and even in the winter it won’t get much below 15ºC, so you won’t need to worry about being too cold whenever you come.


If you’re going for the bustling nightlife, come in peak summer months and stay in the Playa De Las Americas area. If you want somewhere calmer and more cut out for families and couples, the Costa Adeje is ideal, or you could simply visit anywhere in Benidorm outside the peak summer months of July and August.
