On the island of Tenerife, in this part of the Tropic of Cancer, nature has granted us the gift of warm temperatures every day of the year, clear skies with a scent of the ocean, and a landscape pampered and protected so that we can enjoy and admire it in its original state.
This means that GF Hoteles is the ideal choice for your SUN and BEACH HOLIDAYS, combined with a splendid NATURAL environment. The perfect setting for your leisure time, to share with your family, friends, or partner. For business travellers and professionals too, who know they achieve more by combining peace and beautiful surroundings with their business.
With two modern airports, the journey to our Paradise Island is very quick and easy. On Tenerife, you will be able to enjoy the many different landscapes, such as the impressive Teide National Park. Discover the sea beds, coves, rugged coastline and sandy beaches, which make Tenerife a most attractive island.
Tenerife is an island of contrasts and offers two diverse regions for the wide range of tourism which arrives to the island. On the south coast, we find the beauty and tranquillity of Costa Adeje, bathed in sunshine, with long sandy beached and a wealth or water-sports and activities. This is combined with modern and attractive hotels with exceptional service. Costa Adeje, in the municipality of Adeje, has become, in recent years, the favourite destination for tourists from all over the world. Its choice of leisure and entertainment entices many visitors to return year after year. The island’s professionals are waiting to welcome you with their characteristic friendliness and helpfulness.
On the northern coast, we find the charming and picturesque resort of Puerto de la Cruz. Occupying a prominent place in the history of tourism on the island, the area provides stunning landscapes and cultural charm, along with both traditional and modern accommodation. Situated at the base of Mount Teide, it is one of the best places on the island to appreciate the beauty of Tenerife.
Gastronomy from the Canary Islands combines traditional Spanish cuisine with African and Latin American influences. There are some dishes that have been imported from the Iberian Peninsula, but the real taste of the islands can only be appreciated in the local specialities, which include a wide variety of fresh vegetables, fruit and fish. Many dishes are light and easy to digest in warm climates.
There are exquisite cheeses, made with goat’s milk, offering a variety of flavours and they are highly recommended.
Papas Arrugadas, small potatoes cooked in their skins with salt, are typical to the islands. These are eaten together with Canarian “Mojo” sauces – these can be red or green in colour, and are both made with Olive Oil. The red Mojo Picón is made with paprika, and the green Mojo is made with coriander or parsley and often accompanies fish dishes.
If you like fish, then the Canary Islands is a Paradise for you, as there are many delicious local fish such as Sama, Dorada, Vieja, Cherne.. and many more. You can also sample typical recipes such as Caldereta, a fish stew; and Puchero, which is a mix of local vegetables, cooked together very slowly to bring out the natural flavours. Many dishes are served with “Gofio”, which is toasted maize meal, and this has also been an important ingredient of many local recipes over the years.
The most asked for dessert is Bienmesabe, a blend of honey, almond cream, eggs and rum.
In addition to all of these delicacies, you will also find a wide selection of tropical fruits such as mango, papaya and avocado.
