The best of Hotel Médano

The stairs of the Hotel Médano

Located in the Plaza de El Medano (in the center) is the only hotel that has direct access to the sea. Without even going out onto the street you can take a dip in the sea water by going down the stairs to the terrace. A luxury that nowadays the most modern hotels can’t afford.

Why can the Hotel Medano afford it?

Because of its age. The Hotel Médano opened its doors in 1963, a time when there was not even the coastal law in Spain, which prohibits this type of architecture.

Its privileged location on the beach of El Médano makes it one of the favorite hotels for tourists from all over the world. Relax on the terrace with the first coffee of the morning and watch the sunrise over El Médano with spectacular views of the Red Mountain. What more could you ask for?

In addition, the Hotel Médano has a restaurant both a la carte and buffet; 24 hour reception; attention in several languages; and cleaning service among other services. You won’t lack anything.

historia del hotel medano
The Hotel Médano during the 20th century

The history of the Hotel Médano began more than 100 years ago, between 1910 and 1915.

At that time the Hotel Médano was not even a hotel, but a tomato packing warehouse designed for the access of the ships to the goods.

No roads or cars. In those years boats were the kings of transport on the island of Tenerife.

In the 1940s, the building was renovated and converted into a party hall for the entertainment of El Médano.

It was in the 1960s when its promoter Francisco García Feo (also known as Don Frasco) came up with the idea of converting the building into what is now the Hotel Médano. Don Frasco was a visionary who laid the foundations of tourism in Tenerife South with the Hotel Médano: the first hotel in the south of the island of Tenerife.
