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.
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.
Travelife Gold is awarded to hotels that demonstrate industry-leading sustainability practice. In other words, properties that are both greener and fairer to the environment, their employees and local communities.
We had a week in the Bahia del Duque in early November and enjoyed it very much. The amenities in the hotel are excellent, as are the layout and the views. The location is also superb, being right on to the beach and other restaurants. All staff whom we dealt with were very friendly and very professional. We will return without any doubt.More

November Holiday at the Grand Hotel Bahia del Duque Resort
We enjoyed a wonderful November holiday in this fabulous and interesting hotel resort in Tenerife with fabulous weather for the whole week. we had a standard room which had all we could have wished for with a good sized bedroom on the corner of the hotel. This was very convenient for Reception and for the lift to take you to the dining area where a number of restaurants offered excellent meals . We enjoyed it so much that we have booked to return again in February 2016More

Simply the best
Having stayed in many top hotels worldwide the Bahia Del Duque is one of the best. What separates this from other 5* hotels is the staff and attention to detail. All are amazingly well trained and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The quality of the restaurants is excellent. the only downside was finding loungers in the afternoon as most people seem to 'reserve' these early in the day which I disagree with (hotel should review this policy) and the vast amount of babies and toddlers in buggies everywhere. Does the hotel have a special deal on for families - if so they should allocate adult only areas for loungers/dining and indeed room allocations?More

Lovely Well-Positioned Hotel
My husband and I have recently returned from a great holiday here. It's a larger hotel than we're used to and hadn't anticipated that reservations are a must for the restaurants at the hotel for evening meals, especially if you wanted an outside table. We were also surprised by the early morning "claiming" of sun beds around the numerous pools (can't comment on the kids' pool, as we didn't use it) with towels being left on them yet no sign of the occupants for hours! We even saw one couple "claiming" sun beds with towels and actually using another pool for half the day! (Management please note).
The hotel itself reminded me a little of Portmeirion (Wales) regarding the buildings themselves. The layout is a little confusing at first but adds to the character of the place. There are rather a lot of stairs, though there are golf buggies to take people around if needed. The positioning of the hotel is great, it's right on the beach front. It's all pedestrianised and a stroll to neighbouring resorts, either directions is recommended. (We hired push bikes).
Our room (standard) was well equipped if a little dark. All in all I would recommend this hotel and would definitely return.

I stayed at this hotel as a business user (I was in Tenerife for work and it was booked by my employer). I was definitely not a standard guest in this respect - most people come for holidays and so can make the most of the hotel's facilities.
My room was spacious and comfortable; the bathroom products were particularly nice. I enjoyed working on the balcony in the evenings, very peaceful.
The pools looked good but I didn't get to use them.
Breakfast had loads of options, I didn't feel like anything was really of amazing quality though; Coffee in particular was very bad. It was very busy at breakfast - I can only imagine how hectic it might be in peak season.
Service was without exception very good - all staff extremely helpful, bilingual, gracious and welcoming. For me this is a really important aspect of a business stay.
One downside - I wanted to print a work document at reception but they refused to do this for me using my USB stick, saying it was a hotel policy. I've never had this happen in a hotel before and it seemed a bit ridiculous. I would have been happy to pay for the printing, that certainly wasn't the issue.More
