#RemoteFriendly E02 - Andana at Puerto de la Cruz

Although it might seems that we pick locations in alphabetical order, it is just a plain coincidence. We discovered Andana while we were wandering on the Playa Jardin and we were hooked right away. It was exactly the kind of place that we imagined ourselves working from where we started working remotely.

Andana beach club is located right next to the beach and it is a typical seaside club. Cosy exterior lounge sofas shaded by canopies and tall palm trees. Long exterior bar, plenty of space and fresh seaside air. Who would possibly want to stay inside the city, when you can work from such a place.

Location: 
Avenida Francisco Afonso Carrillo S/N
38400 Puerto de la Cruz,
Santa Cruz de Tenerife

 

 

Opening hours:
12:00 – 22:00

Location Review:

1. Connectivity - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We had absolutely no problem with the wifi connection here. Worked fine both inside and outside!

 

2. Beverages - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Andana is also a restaurant so you can choose from variety of foods here! We loved their burger and paella. They also have a long list of drinks and cocktails!

 

3. Coffee Quality - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We tried Café con leche and standard espresso and they were both very good.

 

4. Value for the Price - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Since Andana is right on the beach, prices here are a little bit higher then in other places in Puerto. Staying here all day long will be a bit more expensive but worth it anyway.

 

5. Staff - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Folks in Andana were very friendly and happy that we chose their place for our review. True professionals!

 

6. Opening hours - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Andana opens at 12am so you can not come for your morning work session here. It stays open till late night but might not be the best place for focus intensive tasks later in the afternoon - you know, it is a beach club!

 

7. Networking - ⭐⭐

Sadly we did not meet any other nomads or expats here during our visits but we hope that it will change quickly after this review.

 

8. Atmospehre - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The atmosphere here is perfect for work during the day. Light seaside breeze, chillout tunes, fresh cocktail in your hand. This is how remote work is supposed to look like!

 

9. Power plugs - ⭐⭐

Power plugs strikes again! Such a pitty that you can connect to a charger only inside of the restaurant. Who want's to sit inside when it is so nice outside?

 

10. Comfort - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Lounge sofas outside are really comfortable for light work but you can also switch to standard table when you need to focus more. There are plenty of options here so you will find the right one for you for sure.

 

#Remotefriendly Ranking - 💻 💻 💻 💻 

Although Andana did not pass with full stars in every catagory, it is quite a unique place. Compared to other clubs on lets say Playa Martianez, this one is much more calm and welcoming. It is not a ultimate greatest single place for RemoteWorkers, but when you looking for a place to work near the beach, this one is a best we know of arround Puerlo de la Cruz. It visualize the spirit of remote office like we had in our dreams and it is just a great place to work from. We can really imagine that Andana will become much more popular among digital nomads in a near future. We love it already!
