Trade winds constantl blow from northeast to southwest, we recommend not to book your accomodation in the east of the island unless you like wind; The west coast is protected from these winds by high mountains; for this reason we recommend you to stay in the area between Los Cristianos and Santiago del Teide.
North of Tenerife weather is cloudier and wetter; it is important to realize that if you stay there you might not find exactly the sunny conditions you are looking for, especially in winter. The south of the island has the best transport system.
