We have carefully selected the accommodation at Mare Verde in Torviscus for its quiet and pleasant surroundings. It is the ideal complex for families, located in the exclusive area of Torviscus in the suburbs of the well known resort of Playa de Las Americas, close to Puerto Colon with its array of expensive yachts and extensive water sports facilities. Nearby also is the esplanade with its tropical gardens, the beginning of the "Geranium Walk", extending approximately four miles along the coast to the resort of Los Cristianos and of course an abundance of shops, bars and some lively restaurants, not to mention two spacious sandy beaches. Directly behind you will see the huge mountains from which we will fly, often right down to the resort.

MARE VERDE, commissioned by Elizabeth Taylor in the late 1980's is an attractive complex covering a larger area than most due to its Andalucian style of two storey bungalows arranged like a Canarian village. The white washed houses interwoven with mature tropical gardens surround a network of swimming pools running through the middle of the resort. Six pools which vary in depth and size are connected by a string of streams, waterfalls and children's slides and are spanned in two places by quaint bridges. The complex looks its prettiest when the sun shines on the white buildings, broken by the blue of the pool and the sky amidst an explosion of brightly coloured Bougainville, roses and geraniums. It is widely regarded as having the most attractive pool on the island and there is no doubt that it has more poolside solar area than almost any other complex on Tenerife.

All apartments have weekly linen changes and are fully equipped.

  • Poolside bar/ snack bars
