Situated in the north of Teneriffe, Oceano in Punta del Hidalgo is a perfect retreat to rest, relax and recover. The hotel sits on the seafront and is surrounded by a garden with palm trees with the Anaga Mountains in the backdrop. The architecture is beautiful with earth tones throughout the property.There is a large pool in the lush green garden outside with views of the Atlantic ocean.
The best part of this hotel is that all rooms are facing the sea with stunning views. I had a room with an amazing view of the ocean and at nights I could hear the waves crashing on the rocks in the bay in front. The rooms are modern, comfortable and tastefully decorated with nice furnishings that includes a flat-screen tv, free Wi-Fi and bathrobes.
The hotel spa offers a range of wellness treatments including massage treatments, hydrotherapy, ayurveda and thalassotherapy. There is a sauna and Turkish bath and a hydrotherapy pool. The therapists at the SPA and Mayr Centre are well trained and the spa offers a good range of treatments including healing facials, ayurveda, thalasso and body wraps. I opted for the Ayruvedic treatments which included Abhyanga, Padabhyanga and Shirodhara. There is a gym and yoga and mediation classes can be arranged at the reception.
The restaurant serves healty food and there is a special menu for those following the detox programme. I particularly liked the breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit & juices, eggs cooked to order, and a nice array of tasty items. The staff was friendly and helpful.
For those of you who prefer going outdoors can opt for hiking or surfing in the ocean just outside the hotel. There are a number of city excursions too to chose from and can be booked at the reception.
