“A fantastic family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Just come back from this hotel. Having been to Tenerife many times in my 20's I was worried as to how my husband and 10 yr old daughter would fare as I have to admit we are used to 5* luxury top 10 on trip adviser hotels...The El Duque area is certainly very exclusive, clean and tidy. This hotel was a lovely surprise. Very clean, tidy and luxurious. Nothing was too much for the staff who adored children and would play and joke with them if they saw the children in the public areas. This is not a big hotel which we like. There is enough going on but will not suit those who wish to be entertained non stop. It is very family friendly but also a lovely place for couples. There is a kid club but like ourselves most parents were actually enjoying spending time with their children. The pools and gardens were beautiful. Due to not being the usual Tenerife destination the children were well behaved and considerate but still had a really good time. The sun beds were of course popular but there was always a life guard on duty who would watch absentees and after an hour or so shut their umbrella and remove their towels unless there were personal possessions there. You were always able to find somewhere even if you had to ask someone next to an empty bed if it was free, the holiday makers were pleasant and polite in reply. They have lovely cabanas as well as the usual sunbeds and much greenery around to hide from what was hot sun in August.

My only criticism if I had one was perhaps the food in the evening. The breakfasts are wonderful (you were even offered bucks fizz on B/B) and you can have as much as you like. Pancakes and omelettes freshly made and plenty for the kids. one morning they brought out homemade chocolate covered apples which went down a treat. Lunch by the pool is very good.. the homemade beef cheese burger is out of this world as are the freshly made Mojitos. In the evening you are faced with the a la carte gourmet Canarian restaurant which we did not try. There is the buffet restaurant which has a different theme each night for example European or BBQ. There is a lot of choice but as is usually the case with mass produced food the food can be fairly same same. The presentation is excellent and the chef takes great pride in checking everything but I think it is unavoidable that some quality is lacking when you have to cater for so many people. They have a grill so each day you can have freshly cooked the meats on offer for that day and the steak, chicken and seafood were amazing and cooked in front of you by friendly staff.

We opted for B/B and so it gave us the flexibility to try other restaurants in the evening which we did and there is a good choice nearby if you do not want to go into the bigger parts of the south of the island.

Reception were very helpful and would order a taxi for you or arrange a trip. They have a special price for arranging a taxi to the airport. I always get a taxi in Tenerife so it is door to door and you do not have to stop at all hotels. It often works out cheaper too. The hotel does not charge for arranging a trip for you.

Typically our flight was in the evening and check out time is noon. If your room is still available they are more than happy to let you keep it til you go to the airport for 39 euros if not you can book a courtesy room free for an hour. We stowed our cases in the luggage room and went to the courtesy room for the pool an hour before we wanted to go to the airport. It is in effect a hotel room next to reception with all the toiletries and towels you had available in your room so it allowed us to have another day at the pool rather than sit round with our cases.

I don't usually sleep on holiday with the beds being too uncomfortable or small. We had a superking being two full singles pushed together and made as one bed and our daughter had a spacious sofa bed in the room with us.

Unlike other hotels that say tips are included but you know you will have to tip each time to get service we did not see anyone tipping here or the staff seeking the same. They were more than happy to serve you expecting nothing in return. We did tip the bellboy as usual but chose at the end of the holiday to give 10 or 20 euros to the one or two members of staff at the end of our 7 day holiday were were overwhelmed by the gesture and genuinely sorry to see us go.

This hotel is one of the few places that I really want to go back to. Even my "always on the go" husband managed to relax and enjoy himself. We will be back..

Room Tip: We had a sea view room which was beautiful. I am not sure whether the rooms facing the road might be...

Just returned from an absolutely wonderful stay at this hotel. The service was second to none. Every aspect of this hotel was 5 Star from arrival to departure. The exceptional service from all the staff made our trip to Costa Adeje truly unforgettable. With stunning grounds, facilities and food, combined with our fabulous villa we are counting the days till our next stay. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough!!!! The view from our hot tub was breath taking!!!!! A special thank you to Antonio the wonderful hotel porter, his advice for bars and restaurants was extremely helpful and never to much trouble.

Room Tip: We had a sea facing villa with a solarium....Absolutely amazing!!

Bed and breakfast- best option - the food was a little ltd- there are some fab places to eat locally. The staff are really attentive and go the extra mile - they made everyone feel at home and went the extra mile.

Room Tip: Sea view and Jacuzzi recommended :)

nice small hotel in comparison to other hotels in the area. some staff in the restaurant are very attentive. this hotel never seems full, always found space. the only let down is some of the food in the restaurant.... not really upto standard it shoud be. rooms are nice & spacious - slight hiccup with our room on arrival but very soon changed - fabulous view from the balcony. would recommend it but go B&B rather than HB

The staff are very attentive at this hotel and nothing is too much trouble I have to give a special mention to Tono who is by far the best porter at the hotel and as you wait to speak to the receptionist he always asks you if he can help in fact on one occassion he did that and got shot down by the guest relations manager which I found a little impolite. For me the hotel is way to quiet you don't hear any music even when the aquagym is done the music is so low I'm surprised the woman doing it can hear it when she's stood next to it. The breakfast is full of variety but gets a bit repetitive after a few days during breakfast the wait staff are brilliant and engage and play with every child however I found the "suits" who welcome everyone to breakfast and chat on their phones the whole time uneccesary. The spa is very nice but very expensive compared to England and to be honest like other 5* hotels we have stayed in the spa's have been complimentary which may be an idea here as the spa is dead most of the time. If you have the pleasure of staying on the side of the hotel facing the road you can look forward to heavy traffic noise. One final thing is the beach shuttle it is a bit ridiculous having a 8 seater taxi go to the beach twice a day for a hotel of that size.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - we had 2 rooms next to each other. Very clean and spacious, loved the bathroom! Plenty space for clothes etc. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis - breakfasts excellent with the option if sitting inside or out.
Pools lovely, sun beds available - luckily we managed to get one of the big beds which was amazing!
The hill wasn't too bad but we did get a taxi back some evenings!
Would stay here again.
