There are a number of great hotels for couples in Golf del Sur where you can relax and enjoy the year-round sunshine in Tenerife. The Hotel Aguamarina is a 4 star hotel with indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts and Jacuzzi. It is also just a short journey away from the livelier resort of Playa de las Americas if you fancy a night out.
The 5 star Sandos San Blas Hotel is perfect for a luxurious holiday that has every facility you could ever think of.
Golf del Sur is not famous for its beaches, but it does have a small, pretty shingle beach. If you are after sand and sun loungers then head to Los Cristianos where you will find large stretches of sand with promenades lined with shops and restaurants.
Playa de la Vistas is great for swimming and Playa de los Cristianos is the best place for grabbing lunch and watching the boats coming and going.

Surprisingly enough the most popular activity here is... golf! There is a great choice of courses offering everything from 9 holes to 27 holes, as well as driving ranges, ocean views and luxury club houses.
