Adults-only hotels in the Canary Islands: sun, sea & silence

By , 21 June 2018

Sometimes it’s nice to get away from it all and that means peace and quiet. So why not book a holiday in an adults-only hotel in the Canary Islands where you won’t be disturbed by other people’s screaming children, or groups of teenagers dive bombing into the pool spraying you all with water, instead you can simply relax and listen to the sounds of the waves on the shore.

These dream hotels are located in Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote and offer you great beaches, generous pool areas, delicious food and everything else you need for a relaxing holiday. Enjoy your time off… in peace and quiet.

A luxurious adults-only hotel in Tenerife

★★★★★ Iberostar Grand Hotel El Mirador | Tenerife

This five-star hotel on the Canary Islands describes itself as “paradise on earth”, directly on the sea – and rightly so, because what is on offer here is truly paradise. The Iberostar Grand Hotel El Mirador is located directly on Playa del Duque in the Costa Adeje and offers pure luxury and relaxation.

All 124 suites are very bright and boast canopy beds for a wonderfully restful sleep. Whichever of the five spacious categories you choose, you’ll always have your own balcony or terrace and a bathroom with bathtub. After a long day on the beach, you can dress up and venture into the elegant surroundings to enjoy a Mediterranean lobster salad or a perfectly roasted beef steak in one of the restaurants overlooking the sea.

The highlight?

The hotel grounds are so magnificent that they resemble an Indian temple complex. Pools, shady arcades, palm trees, green spaces, terracotta terraces with white parasols and arcades as far as the eye can see. A holiday for all your senses!

Splashing in the large outdoor pool while looking out over the harbour and the sea off the Canary Island.
