Disabled travellers


Is Costa Adeje suitable for holidaymakers with mobility problems? My mum is recovering from a hip replacement and can walk OK with a stick; my dad cannot walk more than about 100yds.

Is there somewhere to hire a mobility scooter?

Are there lots of places to walk on the flat?

Which 3 or 4 star hotels are best placed for easy walking to the beach or along a promenade (if there is one).

Las Americas resort is mostly flat but the main areas of del duque/Fanabe/Torviscas etc are all hilly although the prom in these areas is flat can't comment on mobility scooter hire but I'm sure that someone else will be able to. As for hotels any along sea front would be more suitable for people with walking distance difficulties.

I travel with a disabled person every year to Teneife because it is so wheelchair friendly. I normally stay in the Meditterranean Palace (Mare Nostrum) area because it is all completely on the flat. I love Adeje and have stayed there but whilst there is no problem getting around in a mobility scooter, for the able bodied partners, it can be exhausting going up and down the hills away from the sea front prom.

Yes, you can rent mobility scooters - Orange Badge - use them every year. They will deliver and pick up from your hotel or airport. Website is www.orangebus.eu or you can email them directly at:


I always hite the lightweight scooter as it can come apart if you want to hire a taxi (if you get too tired walking).

Hi, be aware that it can be a long walk from leaving the airplane to baggage reclaim. It would be worth your while contacting 'airport assist'. If your dad has a mobility scooter at home, he can bring it with him. Many airlines will not charge.

As already mentioned you should book Special Assistance with your airline. Although provided by the airport authority, it is supplied by the airport. Always do it direct with the airline and not rely on somebody else doing it for you. All airlines carry mobility scooters and wheelchairs FOC, but need to be advised in advance.

Before you book accommodation check it out properly to ensure it is accessible. I suggest you bok an accessible room, but ask the hotel how accessible it actually is.
