Looking for a summer getaway? Make Tenerife top of your list, with its beautiful sunshine, delicious food and family-friendly resorts. We loved the Iberostar Anthelia for a break with a difference – discover why below:

Iberostar Anthelia: The Lowdown

Iberostar Anthelia is a 5-star spa hotel in South Tenerife, with all the facilities, food and amenities you could want for an amazing summer break. Everything you could possibly need is available 24 hours a day at the Iberostar, and, at one minute’s walk from the beach, the location is just ideal. The hotel is the perfect place to come and relax – you can drift off to the sound of the sea and wake up to the chatter of birds. Heaven.

Iberostar Anthelia: The Accommodation

There’s lots of room styles to choose from. The interconnecting rooms are great if you’re bringing the kids with you. You can enjoy two double rooms connected by an adjoining door, and there is room for up to 6 people! The sea side double rooms are beautiful for views; imagine waking up every day to views of the Atlantic Ocean from your balcony or terrace. For ultimate luxury, discover the sea side suite, where you can spend hours in the whirlpool bath with your partner or enjoying the sea views from the upper floors of the hotel. Some of these rooms are distributed over two floors and boast a bedroom, separate living room and two bathrooms.

Iberostar Anthelia: The Food

Whether you are looking for half board or all inclusive holidays, Iberostar is a great place for foodies, with four restaurants and four bars. There’s lots of restaurants to choose from, including international cuisine, traditional dishes, traditional Canarian dishes, adapted menus. Zeus Restaurants is the hotel’s buffet offering – in the evening, there are six international buffets with smoked dishes, cold meats, seafood, cheeses, pâtés, salads with vinaigrette, roast meats, and much more. There’s also a chocolate fountain, which is always good news. For something classy, try the SeaSoul Restaurant & Lounge during lunch or dinner. This is the place to savour fresh seafood such as lobster, crab, oysters and mussels, all set to live music. Magical.

Iberostar Anthelia: The Facilities

There’s lots of great facilities at the hotel, including spa, watersports and family-friendly activities. If you want to come home from your holidays feeling refreshed, try their thermal circuit with an active pool, jets and waterfalls circuit, 40-degree pool, cold-water pool, Finnish sauna, hammam or Turkish bath and sensations showers.
