4.4

Rating: 4.4/5.0

Av Colón, 14 - Puerto de la Cruz, Santa Cruz de Tenerife - 38400 Tenerife - see on map

What we like about the school

  • Located just a few steps from the black volcanic sands of Martianez Beach.
  • Excellent nationality mix. No student nationality makes up more than 15% of students.
  • Free assistance in finding flats for long-term students.

What we dislike about the school

  • Do not offer favorable cancellation terms in the case of a student getting a visa rejected.

Location: Located right in the heart of Puerto de la Cruz, Don Quijote Tenerife could not have a better location. With the best beaches, recreational centres, shops, restaurants and cafes all within walking distance, students are sure to find comfort in the Canary Island spirit. Housed in a traditional Canarian-style building, the school has a circular central patio with benches, plants and fresh air where students can enjoy the island's sunshine during breaks between classes. As mentioned, the school is literally a few steps away from the black volcanic sands of Mariánez Beach and a 2-minute walk from the Lago Mariánez shopping complex.

Course selection: Don Quijote Tenerife offers a great range of courses, catering for all levels of students and types of study. If you are looking for a General Spanish course in-group, semi-private or private classes, they will be sure to have the course for you. They also offer more specific courses for mature students with their 50+ programme along with a Gap Year programme for students looking to stay for longer durations of study. In addition to this, the school also offer business courses and Exam Preparation courses for both the DELE and SIELE exams.

Additional information: Another aspect of Don Quijote that is often favoured by students is they keep the number of students in each classroom low, making sure each student gets the attention needed to achieve their personal language goals.

School chain: With over 30 years of experience, Don Quijote is an internationally recognized leader in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. They have multiple campuses in many countries throughout the world and continue to provide quality and innovative services to their students whilst constantly working to better themselves.

What students liked about Don Quijote, Tenerife
The two teachers Lauris and Salome were fantastically competent and inspiring. It wasn't boring for a second and I was able to learn a lot. Because of Corona we were a small group but the teachers were highly motivated.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I went there in summer but there was practically no sun. Just my luck that I went there to study and to get tanned.
Other comments: Very good school, nice teachers (They were always giving tips about Tenerife.)
