Finding a room is generally not a problem in Santa Cruz and in the north of the island (apart from at Carnaval time), but the same cannot be said for the southern resorts, particularly around Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas; book in advance when possible. Elsewhere on the island, it's always a good idea to book ahead to be sure of a room in your first choice of accommodation.
