Latest holiday offers
Being an Iberostar hotel, you'll find that most of the top travel agents and tour operators like On The Beach, Thomas Cook, Broadway Travel and Expedia. If you book directly with the tour operator flying you to Tenerife, like TUI and Jet2holiday, they'll usually include one piece of check-in luggage per person, shared airport transfers and sometimes even seat selection. One of the other benefits of booking a package holiday to Bouganville Playa is that you can often pay a low deposit to begin with, and pay off the rest of the balance of your holiday over time.
The alternative is to book your flight and hotel separately, which may work out cheaper if your flights from the UK are with the likes of Ryanair. Booking your flight and hotel individually, either directly through the hotel website, or through a hotel supplier like Booking.com or Hotels.com, will mean that your holiday isn't ABTA or ATOL protected. While we don't recommend this, if you do choose to book like this, make sure you have comprehensive travel insurance in place before you travel.
Some of the best deals are package holidays with flights via the tour operators, with discount codes, free child places and other offers regularly available throughout the year.
Priding themselves on their environmentally friendly practices, all rooms are free of single-use plastics.

Standard Double Rooms are the basic room type at the Iberostar Bouganville Playa, but they are far from basic. All rooms have a balcony or terrace, TV, bathroom with shower, hairdryer, and the all important air conditioning.
Identical to the basic rooms, if you prefer to admire the mesmerising ocean from your balcony, the double rooms with sea view are the ideal upgrade. Side sea view rooms are also available at a slightly cheaper rate.
Sleeping up to 2 adults and 2 children, family rooms give you the extra space you need while you're away on holiday, with more floor space, a flat screen TV and a sofa bed, so that you and the kids aren't on top of each other.
If you're a family and prefer even more space, or a group of friends enjoying the winter sunshine, Interconnecting Rooms are perfect. Available on request and at a slightly higher price, these rooms give you even more space, with door being able to be shut from both sides to give extra privacy. This can be great for teenagers who want their own bathroom or families with older children.
Junior Suites can be a good alternative too. These suites sleep up to 2 adults and 2 children, sharing 1 bathroom. If you book a junior suite, you'll enjoy s separate living area with sofa bed, although there's no door between the rooms so if you really want privacy, then an interconnecting double room might be more suitable.
Star Prestige Sea View Rooms offer the same as normal sea view rooms but on a higher floor (so even better views of the sea), as well as the various other benefits that come with being a Star Prestige guest.
Your Star Prestige Junior Suite sleeps up to four people (2 adults and 2 kids) but is on a higher floor than standard ones. You can also take advantage of the other benefits on offer such as late check-out (subject to availability) and discounts on spa treatments.
