The best pet friendly hotels in the Canary Islands

Our pets are not only considered a companion animal, but for many people they are a fundamental part of the family and a loved one of great importance. That is why more and more people are looking for their pets to accompany them everywhere, including trips and vacations. In this new article we will talk about the best pet friendly hotels in the Canary Islands, get to know them and organize the best vacations with your pets!

Organize vacations with your pets

When organizing vacations, families are faced with the inconvenience of finding an accommodation that allows them to stay for a few days with their pets, but this already has a solution and there is a new trend, the so-called pet friendly hotels, which accept pets in their facilities and can also offer specialized services for our furry companions.

What is pet friendly

The concept of "pet friendly" is basically used for all places or services that are friendly to pets and that besides accepting them without any problem, have specialized services to accommodate animals and treat them with dignity.

Nowadays there are many places that are pet friendly such as restaurants, bars, convenience stores, parks, shopping malls, transportation and of course, hotels. In these places you can have the certainty and peace of mind that your four-legged friend will have the respect and care necessary to ensure that it has a good time and all the time is safe from any aggression or accident that could suffer in unsuitable places.

Why choose pet friendly hotels

Pet friendly hotels are places that allow you to stay at your destination, providing you with the best services for your rest, safety and anything you need to do as if you were at home, but with the advantage of accepting and receiving you with your pet for the same fee or with an additional cost, depending on each hotel.

These hotels always advertise this pet admission service so that people interested in traveling with their pets can consider them as an option or also so that people who are not very fond of animals or are allergic to them can avoid them, although usually there is no problem of coexistence, since there are usually separate areas for animals and exclusive areas for people. This ensures that no one will be uncomfortable and that all sanitary and safety measures will be complied with for all tenants, whether human or animal.

What kind of animals do pet friendly hotels accept?

These hotels are generally designed to accept dogs and cats, as they are the most common and docile pets in the world; however, hotels may accept other types of mammals, birds or reptiles, as long as they do not pose a danger to other guests and hotel staff.

In addition, guests who wish to bring other types of animals must have appropriate containers and all safety measures to ensure that they do not escape or damage the facilities and third parties.

What services do pet-friendly hotels offer

Pet friendly hotels, in addition to allowing pets in their facilities and in the rooms where their owners stay, also offer various services that are focused on our little friends having as much fun as we do during our vacations.

Among the services usually included are: special pet beds, pet carriers, leashes and identification collars, food and water dishes, toys, veterinary service inside or outside the hotel, references to pet friendly tourist sites, pet sitter or day care service for when you go out without your friend, special cleaning protocols, and much more.
