2 outdoor saltwater pools
The two pools are both spacious with plenty of native plants and trees decorating the surrounding terrace. Cushioned sunbeds can be found dotted around, and tall palms offer shade. One of the pools is likened to a spa, with a series of jets to try out and a waterfall to immerse yourself under.
Las Aguas Canarian à la carte restaurant*
Canarian cuisine is offered at Las Aguas using fresh, local ingredients.

First time to Tenerife & luck was on our side because I think we stayed at the best hotel on the island. Very attentive staff & the whole experience was 1st class. We were on sea view room, bed & breakfast board. Although we had good intentions of trying many local restaurants we were spoilt for choice at the hotel & only ventured out once. We also had a car which was not necessary. Great time & will definitely come back.More

I cannot add much more to the recent, articulate review by PAUL B. Sadly, I couldn't use the facilities as much as I would have liked as came down with a virus (which had just started before leaving Gatwick) and was not on good form. We did not enjoy very good weather as it was an exceptionally cool week but this didn't spoil our enjoyment of this fine hotel - an oasis in the otherwise "bloated" tourist areas of the surrounding coastline. We changed our room as initially we were allocated a room with no garden view (as booked) but this did not prove to be a problem. A nice touch is that the "club house" will post your postcards without charging for the stamps. We will return.More

January '15 stay at The Grand Bahia del Duque, Tenerife
This hotel deserves it's five star rating. The hotel is huge and lavish but that does not meant it sinks into a clinical, standardised, uninspiring edifice. It exudes individual style and atmosphere. For people of a certain age think Portmeirion, and the TV series 'The Prisoner' with it's various designs of buildings even down to the electric buggies for transporting arrivals and departures. These buildings are attached to the hotel all with a slightly differing architectural style e.g. Moorish courtyards, colonnades,etc. You can look up all the facilities on other web sites but I will mention the services that impressed me over and above those. The welcoming drink, the bottles of fortified wine and cheese and walnuts left, gratis, in your room. The invitation to individual physiotherapy sessions (the resident physiotherapist tends to Rafael Nadal, the tennis player). The observatory, open twice a week. The reformers used in Pilates and use of the spa, Double showers, several restaurants with excellent food from different countries including the buffet with over one hundred and forty choices (I counted). The staff who have not reached tourist fatigue and speak a little English that remind you of where you are. Constant supply of fruit and cold water as you are using the pool areas, a clean and well appointed beach with pleasant lunch time restaurants, early morning runs where locals mix with tourists. My reservations are -close your eyes to some of the area in this part of Tenerife, photocopied boxes stuck onto hillsides for miles, over-development at it's worse. As for the hotel -I think a hotel of this quality needs to upgrade their toiletry accessories in the rooms, to have blankets for the floor shows at night when it can get chilly, the quality of shows were inconsistent, and finally - if on half board, there should be a wider choice in those restaurants that charge a supplement. However I would return.More

5 star Tenerife
Truly one of the best âholidayâ hotels Iâve ever stayed in. And Iâm notoriously picky, travelling a lot for work and leisure. From arrival to departure it was just wonderful. Special mention to the staff, every one of whom was friendly, courteous and eager to help. Our room was very tastefully furnished, comfortable and well laid out. A sizeable balcony overlooking beautiful and quiet gardens. A huge âEmperorâ size bed with personal choice of beautifully laundered and pressed crisp, fresh, white cotton bedlinen and pillows. Towels changed twice daily, once in the morning and one at the evening turn-down service. Complimentary bottled mineral water provided in the room and by the pool. Amazing blackout curtains which mean you could sleep until noon should you so choose. Everything you could reasonably want, the hotel has thought of and provided. Bahia del Duque is the perfect blend of beach informality and 5 star formality. I liked the fact that dress codes are required in the restaurants at mealtimes and a certain level of behaviour expected when at the pool and in the grounds. I like that the hotel has an expectation of its guests in the same way that the guests have expectations of the hotel. This is a two-way relationship. The breakfast buffet is spectacular. Special mention to the self-serve orange juice machines which instantly juice the huge crates of oranges and dispense direct to the glass. And also for me â a coffee lover â the self service Nespresso machines were a fantastic idea. I always want more coffee and it was great to be able to help myself to as many CafÃ© Cortados as I wanted, without having to ask the waiter each time or to pay extra. The most comfortable sunbeds around the pool areas I have ever used. With clean, fresh beach towels and bottled water provided by the charming pool boys. We ate in a couple of the hotel restaurants and found the food and service first rate. Perhaps a touch on the expensive side, but since we live and regularly eat out in London and it was no worse than standard London prices. Free and fast WIFI all over the resort - rooms, restaurants, bars and around the pool and grounds. We had a spa package and spent a relaxing afternoon in the Thalassotherapy circuit, steam room, sauna and sun loungers. Iâve always found with hotels that on the whole you get what you pay for. Yes this hotel is more expensive than others nearby but the standards are without doubt significantly higher. I will be returning next year.More
Beautiful hotel, stunning location and very friendly staff
I have been coming to the Bahia del Duque for fifteen years. We love the hotel, great location and the staff make the hotel, the service is excellent. Visiting this time with my 2 daughters. Had a lovely sea view room 440 but there was a small problem with the room. When I pointed it out to Raquel, the very helpful Manager in Charge she arranged for me to change rooms immediately and gave me an upgrade to a stunning suite 711. Best room I have ever had in hotel and at this stage we have tried a lot if them! Special mention has to go to the Beach Club Restaurant. We look forward to our lunches a few weeks before we arrive. Beautiful seafood and lovely salads, our favourite meals of the holidays. Very friendly staff. Love the hotel and hope to return for many years to comeMore
