Barceló Teguise Beach Hotel

The Barceló Teguise Hotel has always been in a fabulous position right on the sea front in Costa Teguise, but it has recently undergone a rumoured €12 million refurbishment, so we visited the hotel yesterday to see how it all looks. Assistant Manager Xavi gave us a guided tour, and the place is stunning!

Entrance  Reception

The hotel is now a 4 star, and everything from the gardens, to the pools, gym and spa area and every single room has been totally upgraded. It’s also now an adults-only property, so although it was almost full when we visited, the public areas are amazingly peaceful and quiet. You can book the Teguise Beach bed and breakfast, half board or all inclusive. There are 3 restaurants: Pool bar (Mediterranean cuisine and healthy food) open during the day. The Sports Bar (snack and fast food) open during the day and evenings. And there is a buffet, with 3 areas (Asian, Canarian and International.)

There are two restaurants, one offering international cuisine, including sushi with a trained chef, and another offering Canarian cuisine, and two main bars, as well as a pool bar. There are two swimming pools, one is an infinity pool with incredible views over the ocean, and an intriguing glass wall, and the other, very large main pool, with sunbeds around both.

Central Plaza  Gym

The Teguise Beach also has a well equipped gym, with  read more »
