The ‘gran’ in the Costa Adeje Gran speaks volumes. It’s grandiose in pretty much every way. Cue four pools, smart restaurants and the kind of interiors that’d normally grace the cover of a magazine.
The marble lobby is case in point. It’s all glitzy chandeliers, chic sofas and ivory pillars spread over acres of space. And it doesn’t end there. In fact, everywhere you go, cascading water features, glossy walkways and planted palms create an aura of calm.
The culinary scene is special, too. You’ve got two restaurants to choose from including the main ‘La Finca’ buffet. Or up the luxury at the à la carte ‘La Laja’ - it’s all sharp-suited waiters, modern decor and contemporary cuisine.
Tucked between the hotel’s wings are three pools trimmed by ornamental palms and terraces. But the highpoint is the rooftop pool. Exclusively for adults, it’s bordered by sun decks, naturist areas and Atlantic views. And when you want to step up or slow the pace, there’s everything from tennis courts to a spa offering stress-relieving wraps and massages.
In terms of the rooms, the standard ones are decorated in warm pinks and peaches. You’ve got all the accroutrements, too, like satellite TVs, air-conditioning and balconies, lots of which have fabulous sea views.
Then there’s the location. It’s on a hillside near the centre of Costa Adeje, a five-minute walk from shops, restaurants and beachfront bars. And talking of beaches, you’ve got a choice - either Duque or Fanabe.

Nice Break But With Caveats ...
Almost at the end of a week's vacation and generally enjoying our stay at Costa Adeje Gran but if you are planning to go please consider the following: 1. Don't go in school term - it's a huge hotel, one of the biggest we've been to, with more kids than you can `shake a stick at'! 2. Book B&B only as lunch and dinner can be a bit chaotic given the sheer number of guests. The staff do a fantastic job under huge pressure, and are generally polite and helpful (some bordering on charming), but the general atmosphere is like `feeding at the zoo'. 3. Use the pool area on the sixth floor as it is so much more tranquil than the main pool areas and generally easier to get a sun bed - you don't feel like one of `the mass'! You get a few kids playing in the pool but by exception rather than the norm. Generally, a nice peaceful area overlooking the mountains one side and the sea the other. 4. The sixth floor has two very discreet nudist bathing areas (no separate pool) if you are that way inclined. These areas do not infringe on anyone who doesn't wish to partake in this leisure pursuit. 5. Be prepared to walk up and down hills, especially if you opt to eat out, as the hotel is located 15 minutes from Adeje. We enjoyed the walks and found a lovely shell shop off one of the back streets. 6. If you book half-board `mix and match', i.e. swap dinner for lunch (you just need to advise reception the day before). That means you can eat out without losing the money you have spent on food/ board. Perhaps also use the Al La Carte restaurant for an extra Euro 15 per head although be warned portions are fine for the ladies but I left feeling somewhat hungry. The food was good but not the best. 7. Make the most of `Happy Hour' in the bar area after 11pm (half-price) when the evening entertainment has finished. We saw people coming in and ordering full price at 10:45 without realising that a 10-15 minute wait would reduce their bar bill by 50% (and the drinks are not cheap). 8. The evening entertainment is reasonable quality but the dance floor and immediate area in front of the performer(s) is swamped with kids, some which can barely walk - a bit frustrating if you like to boogie and another reason not to come during school breaks. 9. The reception staff were really helpful. We missed our flight out to Tenerife due to a problem with me travelling back from work in Germany in time. When we arrived 12 hours late they voluntarily swapped the evening meal we had missed with lunch on the day of our departure. Thoughtful! 10. When you go to breakfast, and if you do go half or full board, ask the waiters to re-lay a table rather than hunt around for an empty/ set table. They are more than happy to accommodate. 11. There is WiFi throughout the hotel, including the sixth floor pool area, and whilst a bit sporadic it is really good to see it available across the complex. 12. We down-scored `Sleep Quality' as our 16 year old daughter slept on a settee bed that was like a rock - but she's young and can cope! This is not a five star hotel but we never thought it would be and therefore reality has not fallen short of expectations. We paid c. £2,100 for 3 people the week before Easter; after flights and taxis the hotel element was probably c. £1,200 for 6 nights. I do not consider £200 per night to be poor value for dinner, bed and breakfast at the height of the spring holiday season. The staff at this hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is clean and reasonably modern - could do with a lick of paint in some areas. The pool and pool areas, whilst busy, are clean and well maintained as is the sun-loungers and other patio furniture. The restaurant is manic but not to be expected during such a busy time. Overall we enjoyed our stay and if you follow some of the above advice I think you will also enjoy your stay if you have booked. We would come again but outside of school holidays. The staff deserve real credit!More
Very simply this is the best hotel we have ever been to. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you, the rooms were stunning and always kept very clean, the food was delicious and the facilities were endless. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We are normally 3 star type hotel people, but this was great value for money and worth every penny. The beach is about 5/10 minute walk down the road. Not far at all, but the hotel pools are gorgeous anyway if you don't fancy the walk. I recommend the cocktails... Delicious! The only thing I would say is take some hair conditioner, as you only get shampoo there. That's nowhere near a complaint though. Just some advice. Highly recommended. You will love it!More

A Brit without tea and coffee making facilities!
Where to start...We chose bed and breakfast option and spent much of the time outside of the hotel, so cannot comment on entertainment, in house restaurants etc but can agree with other disappointed reviewers in saying this is not 5* and were sorely disappointed with the value of the service provided in comparison to what we paid. Our two major issues were the state of our room and "optional extras". Throughout the week that we stayed, the floor of our room was not swept and there were thick layers of dust around parts of the furniture. I had spilt breadcrumbs on the balcony accidentally on the second day and for the rest of the week they remained there. Some would argue that I could have asked to have the area cleaned.... in 5* you shouldn't have to. The staff never replaced our coffee cups, despite the fact we had paid 13 Euros for the privilege of having them and didn't have a proper sink to wash them in ( they didn't even clean the coffee granules around the bathroom sink for four days) and this is why I mentioned optional extras, because if you visit this hotel, you will find no kettle and no complimentary tea or coffee in your room. Only after paying 13 Euros will you have the privilege, and even then you will need to buy extras after running out, which you will, considering what they give you. There are many other issues such as poor Wi-Fi connection at times, very little choice of English TV channels for those that like to channel surf, and in our situation the worst issue being the bed. The mattress was sturdy enough and we were given a double bed as requested, but the pillows and the blankets were absolute rubbish in my opinion and were of a three star quality or lower. The wardrobes were spacious for clothing, but made our clothes smell awful after several days, and if you have a room at the back end of the hotel, prepare to hear the crescendo of broken glass as the hotel staff recycle outside the balcony throughout the day. Other reviewers have not appeared to mention the size of the hotel being an issue. If you plan to stay at the hotel throughout the time you are there it will not be a problem, but depending on where your room is, get ready for a five minute walk to reception if you are going out. Meal times are really a free for all, due to the sheer amount of guest the hotel has. And again as others have said the decor and general feel is looking shabby in places. There were some good points to the hotel. The staff were friendly and courteous, especially at breakfast when setting our table. The variety of food at breakfast was good and there were free facilities, such as the gym and roof pool which were nice options, but that is essentially it. I really would have liked to point these glaring issues out to the management, but in this kind of establishment you shouldn't need to, and they have had enough feedback already to be aware. I have written this purely as a warning to others as Tenerife is wonderful in places and this experience can diminish your enjoyment of the island.More

Costa nota lota
I don't understand the complaining 5 star type reviews - did they really expect a UK 5 star standard for what is probably 3 star money. There is a genuine 5 star down the road, which costs as much for a night as this hotel charges for a week. It is somewhere between a 4 and 4.5 star perhaps. We stayed in February at half term and had a great holiday - I was very surprised by the quality and scale of the hotel - everything seemed very generous in it's proportions, the bedrooms were very good - we are a family of 3 and the rooms coped very well indeed. We were very pleased with the buffet restaurant and didn't eat anywhere else, very good variety... i normally get bored with a buffet style arrangement. The hotel staff were great, all very helpful. Special thanks go tot the entertainment team, we've done a Thomson's holiday before (as a comparable) and our daughter was more than happy with the day time kids club - she wanted to go, she didn't with Thomson. Evening entertainment a bit cheesy at times, but again isn't that part of the fun? This hotel could be a bit better, but then they'd charge more would they? I would recommend. Enjoy.More

Good but not 5 star
Holidayed last March at the Costa Adeje which we enjoyed very much. The facilities were very good, entertainment varied and enjoyable but we are not fond of buffet style eating, dinner is over too quickly. Food was good choivpce okay Although we have had better! pools wee excellent including on the room which was a quiet oasis. Unfortunately one pool had developed a leak and was closed with drilling and repair work going on, however ,sin pool was big enough to cope. Plenty of sun beds and poolside facilities good. We liked the area ANC walked surprisingly to Los Christianos, some distance but worth it. We would go again both to Tenerife and this hotel. As ever canaries is a great winter location but it is relatively expensive as other options are limited at this time of year. Great for all but it think this hotel suits couples more than children.More
