This luxury hotel comes with an impeccable dining scene. As for swimming, you’ve a choice of pool or beach.
From the outside, this place is really striking – all quirky turreted buildings, lagoon pools and pretty squares. And it’s just as grand inside, where you’ll find eight restaurants and a world-class spa.
There’s a wealth of things to do here. Expect things like tennis, volleyball and watersports – which you’ll find on Playa Del Duque Beach right next to the hotel gardens. And it’s only a 5-minute walk into town.
If you book Bed & Breakfast, and arrive between the 1st May 2016 and the 17th of June 2016, and the 1st October 2016 and the 13th October 2016, you'll receive an upgrade to Half Board for free. Meals will be available in the El Bernegal restaurant only.
Resort Credit Offer
Arrive between 1st-10th October 2015 and each adult will receive €100 resort credit for each full week stay. This can be used towards food and drinks at the hotel's restaurants and bars, but not the minibar. This will be credited to your account, and removed from your final bill, but just so you know, there isn't a cash alternative.
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.
Michal Novotny, the prestigious sports physiotherapist has opened a practice within the Bahia del Duque Spa. The peaceful, outdoor spa features thalassotherapy treatments and hot stone massage with lava rocks. There's a sauna, a healthy-eating restaurant, a thalassotherapy pool and a beauty salon here too.
Each villa is spacious and stylishly furnished with a separate lounge and dining area. There's a Nespresso coffee-maker, a pillow menu and luxury toiletries. The outside space is pretty special too, with a private terrace, sun deck and your own heated plunge pool.

A great luxury resort!!
Our family had a great stay at the Villas.
Our villa, the Spa and the Thai spa treatments were all spectacular! We have stayed at similar villa in resort complexes before, and the villa was one of the best. On some days we could not find sun beds at our preferred spot, but the pool guys (at the Villas) were extremely helpful getting extra beds and shade quickly.
There are some great touches here, albeit with some small inconsistencies in the service (but these are certainly not major flaws!)
We stayed half board, and after eating at almost all of the on-site restaurants were only really impressed with la Brasserie, and ate there twice. Men are required to wear long trousers for evening meals in any of the restaurants. In comparison to this level of formality, there is a 30 minutes children's disco (in August) on the Main Square each evening at 21:00 hours (many of the hotel restaurants have lovely terraces overlooking this main square...). For these two reasons we ate outside the hotel on our last evening, on the beach promenade.
The proximity of this luxury hotel to outside restaurants and amenities is thus a real plus, as you have more choice. There are good restaurants just two steps from the hotel, overlooking the sea, where you can watch the sunset. I was also happy to see there is a security guard always at the beach gate, and of course room card is required to open the gate (out or back)
We can also recommend a trip to the hotel Observatory, and the man working there was very professional.
This is a top notch resort. I would class it as excellent if they could iron out those small inconsistencies in service, here and there. I have been recommending the Villas to my friends, and we are planning to return ourselves.
Lux life G,
The staff in this hotel are without doubt the best that I have ever encountered. Nothing is too much trouble for all the Bahia staff and this is coupled with their polite and happy attitude. There is a great choice of restaurants within the hotel to choose from which is just as well as there are very few decent restaurants within close vicinity of the hotel. The range of facilities is impressive and I can understand why there were so many families at the resort. My only wish was that the 'adults only' sunbathing section was larger and there were fewer screaming children! Therefore, if you want to avoid over tired children avoid the school holidays. However, a great place and a memorable hotel.More

Mmmmm we were disappointed this time
Have visited many many times, so our expections are as usual very high. BUT, oh dear, disappointed to say it maybe starting to look rather tired. Rooms just lovely but why are there problems with the bathroom plumbing? L'Occitane gone, so not as upmarket as it once was. Why after staying so many times is there no record of what we like to have in our room?This is lazy management, we should not have to ask each time. Menus in some restaurants have not changed in years. So we were disappointed and we may not be back. A loyal customer over the years and we have sent lots of people to the hotel to experience the glorious setting but never once have we been rewarded with an upgrade. It cannot go on.More

El Chringuito - probably the worst club sandwich ever!
We visited the beautiful looking beach restaurant El Chringuito, which is part of the Gran Hotel Bahia Del Duque, for what we were eagerly anticipating to be a wonderful lunch. The location of the restaurant overlooking the beach is perfect and there are lots of tables both in the shade and in the sun.
Our first disappointment was with the service, as it took just over 10 minutes from when we sat down before a waiter came to take a drink/ food order.
We ordered a capresse salad, which was very good, and a club sandwich which was very poor. Described in the menu as containing chicken, bacon, eggs, mayonnaise and salad, it arrived as nothing more than a toasted sandwich very sparsely filled with one slice of sandwich ham and a sliced boiled egg (plus French fries). At â¬9.50 it fell way below our expectation!
In summary location was great, but service and food were very disappointing. Don't think we would go back.More
