Just returned from Tenerife, and from a wonderful Holiday at this Hotel.
Me and my husband are 36, and were looking for a Boutique Hotel, that was in easy reach of bars, and good restaurants, but was also far enough away from the typical british karaoke bars.
Had I have listened to some of the reviews about this Hotel, we would never have gone, which would have been a shame.
On entering the Hotel, the reception area is spotlessly clean, and the reception staff are all very friendly and willing to help.
We were very lucky and were upgraded to a Junior Suite, which was fabulous, and had a view to die for, which was a bonus for our 2 week holiday!! (there are a FEW rooms without a proper sea view, if you get one, ask to be moved, youll be glad.)
There are in total 7 pools, and loads of sun loungers, though if you want a double, get up early!! Also at weekends the Hotel is busy with locals and families, but Monday to Friday was blissfully quiet. Buffet restaurant is good for breakfast, although the tea is like dish water.! In the evening the buffet restaurant has live music till about 10pm, and there are themed nights, although we only ate there twice.
There are also 2 other restaurants, one is Gormet Canario, expensive, very quiet, but very good food, the other is La Jaime (which by day is the pool bar), and at night is turned into a fab chilled out restaurant that is surrounded by candles, and plays very chilled music, (closed on Monday and Tuesday night), which is perfect for a romantic meal, and is not at all pretentious, youll love it, this restaurant only opened the second week of July, it is seasonal, and is open till about 1am.Outside of the Hotel is an area called Playa Del Duque, which has about 3 restaurants, 1 of which is great, (as mentioned before by other reviews )La Torre Del Mirador, the setting is great, as its right on the beach, and the staff are very friendly. Afterwards, just a few minutes away there are a few very relaxed bars, but the best being a Acanto, which has loads of couches outside, and does a great Sangria with cava, but as its so nice, be careful how much you drink!!! Elsewhere we tried La Vieja, in La Caleta, a fish restaurant, that the Hotel recommended, but to be honest wasnt much good, and if you were lucky enough to get a seat outside, the view is great, but it really is in the middle of nowhere, so is not much use if you want to go to a bar afterwards.We also tried a few restaurants in Fanabe,(10 mins walk away) which were nice, but this is Karaoke land I must warn you. We were lucky enough to find a bar right next to Mc Donalds, which is right on the beach, called in and Out, and every night they have the best rock band on called Sound Chaser, who do everything from bon jovi, Led Zeppelin, to Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones.... and is Full every night, full of families, couples, singles you name it, they are great, and even if your not a rock fan, go and see them, at least once. We avoided the Veronicas, but did go to Playa Las Americas, as there is a nice side, which is a world away from what we all know!!! The Hotel bar is quiet at night, but is open till 1am, but personally we prefered to go to La Jaime instead for late drink.
This place is stunning, the rooms are great, and I am not biased as we were upgraded, because I had a show around, and saw a standard twin, a villa and a royal Suite. The standard twin, was smaller, does not have a dressing room, but would be great for a week, the bathrooms in all of the rooms are the same, separate shower, bath, Toilet, and are spacious, and very clean, the villa that I saw was one on the bottom,(there are 2 on the bottom, and 2 on the top) I thought it smelt damp, and was quite dark (the junior Suites are better), but has a big four poster bed, and again lovely bathroom, and the Royal Suite was stunning, the bathroom was bigger than a studio flat in London!!!
So in conclusion, if you are 18, and want to go clubbing all night, you probably wont ike this Hotel, but if you are a little bit older, but are too young for bed at 10pm, there is plenty to do, just go out and find it, like we did.
The only negative of the Hotel was the lack of advertising, for things going on within the Hotel, Ie the wellness programme that is run by a polish lady called Aga, and she is great, doing Pilates, yoga, Aqua Aerobics, etc, all free of charge, also La Jaime has live music sometimes, but you will have to ask when...
I hope this has helped, I am a hotellier, and have been for 15 years, and so is my Husband, and by all accounts this really is worth going to visit, if you really do need to just chill out, and get away from the rat race, but to also have a great time!!
