Los Cristianos Holidays
of a pint £2.35
When: As Los Cristianos is Tenerife’s most family-friendly resort, we’d recommend visiting in September if you don’t want to be helping the little ‘uns make their sandcastles for the duration of your stay. This way, you avoid the crowds of kids but still get to party with the best of them as the party season closes in September. Can it get much better than that?
Where: Stay on the beachfront at the west of Los Cristianos so that you’re a mere 3km from lively Playa de las Americas. This will provide you the best of both worlds – the relaxed vibe of Los Cristianos as well as the livelier and bubblier atmosphere of Tenerife’s party town.
Why: For a getaway that’s more about simply appreciating what an island has to offer rather than backpacking into its innermost depths, Tenerife is a fantastic choice for singles, and in our top ten Tenerife resorts for you lone wolves to visit, Los Cristianos is pretty high.
When: If you want to make the most of the party atmosphere, there’s no better time than June to August. Of course, to get said party atmosphere you’ll have to travel to Playas de las Americas, but Tenerife’s budget-friendly prices will mean that you won’t be too much out of pocket.
Where: Playa de las Americas! How many times? If you’re screaming back at us saying ‘but we want a chilled out holiday!’ then firstly, sorry; and secondly – stay in a spa hotel on the beach and prepare to be PAMPERED!
Why: Personally, we wouldn’t recommend Los Cristianos for you groups. Sure, there are a few bars dotted around, but these are more suited to the Spanish locals rather than groups of party-hungry British adolescents. Playa de las Americas is better, although its short distance from Los Cristianos doesn’t completely rule out the latter, either.
When: Fancy some winter sun? Great – go in October through to March! Fancy scorching heat? Sure – April to September are the months for you. Confused? Don’t be – in Tenerife the sun shines all year round so you can go whenever you fancy escaping from it all.
Where: We’d recommend a spa hotel on the seafront so you and that special someone can go all gooey eyed whether you’re on the massage table or gazing blissfully into each other’s eyes. If you want somewhere with less children, consider Costa Adeje, every couple’s dream location.
Why: Because a holiday is a holiday at the end of the day, and Los Cristianos trumps Britain in every single category – beaches, food, shopping, cocktails and scenery.
When: Book a Los Cristianos holiday for one the kid’s school holidays – it doesn’t matter which one as Tenerife boasts sunshine all year round! If only we could say the same about Britain.
Where: Wherever you stay in this beautiful resort, you’ll be happy. Whether it’s near the old town to add a bit of culture to your stay or on the seafront to make the most of the gorgeous beaches, you won’t be far from all of its best bits.
Why: Oh, now this is what we’re talking about! Families, where have you been? Los Cristianos means ‘ideal for families’ in 24 different languages. Actually, that’s a complete lie but it doesn’t make the fact this resort is great for families any less true.
