Hotel Jardin Tecina 

Showstopping views

Fresh from a top-to-toe renovation in 2024, Hotel Jardin Tecina brings an elegant but earthy feel to its gorgeous clifftop spot on La Gomera.

The Hotel Jardin Tecina will be closed from April until December, undergoing renovation works. The resort will reopen with a fresh look in early December 2024.

Set around low-rise bungalows and gardens that give it a village-like appeal, Hotel Jardin Tecina has a beautiful position on La Gomera with incredible sea views. It’s small enough to feel personable but big enough to have excellent facilities, including a spa, a handful of swimming pools, a tennis academy, and mini golf. It takes full advantage of the natural setting, with cave-set private dinners and restaurants that make the most of spectacular views. A clifftop lift takes you down to a beach, where there’s also a saltwater pool.

Why we love Hotel Jardin Tecina

  • The golf course is beautiful, with the Tiede volcano as its backdrop and year-round superb conditions.

  • The vegan menus use 100% organic ingredients from the hotel’s vegetable patches, fruit trees, and greenhouse.

  • The guest rooms feel light and bright without losing their sense of warmth, with smart wooden floors softened with beautiful upholstery and soft furnishings. Ocean-inspired art gives a nod to the surroundings.

  • The buffet restaurant is finished in abundant natural materials—plenty of wood finishes and plants—befitting the menu sourced from the hotel’s finca and featuring plenty of vegetarian and vegan selections.

Hotel Jardin Tecina is responsibly and sustainably managed. They have their own water supply and desalination system, treat wastewater to irrigate their gardens and use both energy-efficient electricity and solar energy. The hotel is home to Eco Finca, 100% organic gardens where papaya, lettuce, cabbage, aubergine, moringa and artichokes are harvested for their restaurants.

This is an excellent hotel for families. Kids will love the water playground with plenty of interactive splash features, drenching buckets, and slides. A kids club, available for children aged four to 14, integrates sustainably minded activities into the programme. There’s an outdoor park—sure to be a hit—but when they’re ready for shade, there’s an indoor area with PlayStation 5s.

Kids’ club (4-11 years)
