First of all, my apologies to the hotel.
The hotel itself is a wonderful 5 star in an area of 5 star hotels.
We thought we would try a different location and that was the problem.
Playa Del Duque is very upmarket and hosts a large variety of top class retail shops. If you want to buy Cartier or Rolex then this is the place for you.
The nearby restaurants are also expensive and not particularly highly rated by Tripadvisor. We usually walked into Costa Adeje ( about 15 mins) to go to decent restaurants at reasonable prices. May even be worth a taxi fare into Playa De Las Americas for top Tripadvisor rated restaurants.
There is no decent entertainment in the area and is generally a bit too quiet.
As for the hotel, it has a wonderful breakfast with every combination of possible foods (including caviare, red or black!).
No problem getting sunbeds as there are hundreds. One of the outdoor pools is heated perfectly.
Staff fantastic, rooms massive. A wonderful hotel and if you have no intention of leaving the hotel (upgrade to extras, incl evening meal and spa experience 39 euros/person /night) then this is for you.
Pity about the location. It is not the hotel's fault.
