Six hotels in Tenerife have been recognized by German tour operator TUI Holly as among the best 100 in the world. Three are in Puerto de la Cruz, namely the 5* Botánico, and the 4* RIU Garoé and Tigaiga Las Aguilas, with the other three being in the south. These are all 5*: the Jardines de Nivaria and the Vincci Selección La Plantación del Sur on the Costa Adeje, and the Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel in Playa Paraiso. New Tenerife Cabildo president Carlos Alonso said that the awards recognize the work that hoteliers have made to offer the maximum quality and to make Tenerife tourism a competitive destination leader. TUI Holly has been awarding these prizes, based on the popularity of resorts among their clients, since 1994.
