Elegant hotel

Our second visit to the Bahia Del Duque and we had a very relaxing winter break. We stayed in November so the hotel was not over crowded. The staff are exceptional. There was a complimentary bottle of bubbly in our room, with a note from the management welcoming us back. Which was a lovely touch. We had a pleasant room with a good sea view perfect for watching the sunset. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, the gardens are beautiful and when visiting at this time of year there isn't too much trouble finding a sun bed in a private corner! The beds are extremely comfortable, although I have to agree with another reviewer... It was very difficult to attract anyone's attention for a poolside drink... Maybe we were too hidden in our private corner in the 'adult only' section. Mid morning you were served fresh fruit on a stick, and there is limitless complimentary bottled water and pool towels which are situated near the excellent shower rooms and toilets. There are several restaurants to choose from, our favourite being the Italian Trattoria. Amazing choice at the buffet breakfast, and lunches at the Beach Club became the highlight of our day! There is always live music at lunchtime, the food was excellent although quite expensive. The Spa is a real oasis, I had a wonderful back and shoulder massage, I can definitely recommend a visit here... I was collected by buggy after a lovely long lunch at the Beach Club restaurant. The Wine bar is a lovely addition to the hotel, it had just opened in February when we last visited & the staff remembered us! Evening entertainment was very good & we ended each night in the cozy piano bar for a nightcap. The hotel is large and very 'hilly' with lots of steps so would not be ideal if you had mobility problems.the hotel is ideally located which is a big draw for us returning. U have the lovely beach right in front of the hotel, with its imported 'blonde' sand! (although I do think the hotel should have a section of free beds for their guests to use here). If you turn right, you have a good walk to La Caletta.. Or turn left and you can walk along the coastal path as far as Los Christianos...( that's a long walk, but worth doing). There are plenty of restaurants if you venture out and good shopping at the Del Duque Plaza.. Mostly designer shops here, but there are plenty of local shoe shops etc in the locality. My husband and I enjoyed this visit more than last time, probably because we used the facilities more and felt more 'at home'. We asked for a tour of the hotel and were incredibly impressed with the villas and on our next visit we will definitely try to book in the Ducalas section of the hotel... Look into this before you book. We were in room 605.. Which had a small enclosed balcony with a good seaview above the Trattoria. If you want more space ask for an 'open balcony'. To conclude: a very comfortable, elegant hotel, with excellent staff in a great location. Not sure it's a true 5 star but I think it's probably the best in Tenerife, it's perfect for a winter break, still cheaper than Dubai and not as far to travel!More

Good family holiday

Like other reviewers, my experience was good and bad in places. We stayed earlier in the summer and firstly must say that the building and grounds are stunning. Management are outstandingly courteous but I felt let down by less enthusiastic and capable staff. Our room was nice but very brown in comparison to the White, shabby chic style paint depicted in the website photos, however there was masses of paint g and maintenance going on while we were there, outside the rooms, in the gardens etc, so maybe it is lighter and brighter now. Staff don't all seem to understand English, so for example you must ask for something at breakfast, they go off, only never to return! The maid says she will bring flannels or something else for the room but it never turns up. Ask at reception - a different story, requests all executed. Buffet breakfast amazing, one of the best I have experienced with choices of everything. Imaginable, really the best meal of the day. The other restaurants were ok but not outstanding or particularly memorable. The buffet evening was enjoyable, as was the chinese and italian. All good when traveling with older pre-teens as we were but not so perhaps for couples. The worst service however was in the Italian so I willmention this as have other reviewers. We were with friends who have been staying at this hotel for many years since it first opened (they said it was still good but a little tired now in appearance and attitude), they particularly favour this venue so we went a few times. The waitresses were bordering on unpleasant! One evening, having informed them we would be late in advance, when we arrived as we walked in, the Middle aged waitress with spectacles looked at us from across the room as we passed through, lifted her wrist and looked at an imaginary watch and then proceeded to tap the back of her arm with her finger to express 'do you know what time it is, where have you been?' Quite unacceptable and enough to make this the lasting impression of my holiday and deciding me that I wouldn't hurry to return. The pool at the top was lovely. The children enjoyed 'wipeout' water play a few times. The entertainment organiser - Kai I think - was lovely and worth his weight in gold. He constantly tried to include our older girls, although they were just a little bit old for some of the younger events. All in all, if this had been full price - even though we had a discounted stay, but still pricey enough - I wouldn't have been at all happy. We did complain about some aspects and Management are receptive etc but I really don't think they know how surly some of their staff are. One last mention, there was evening entertainment every night after dinner which seemed to go down well with all but did highlight the Butlins feel/element of the holiday. Think carefully before you go and check recent reviews to see if things have improved. Lots of people there who go year after year but there are better places - oh and hundreds of steps, so not for elderly or anyone with problems walking and climbing!More

Pleasant .. By no means exceptional

I want to start with the positives... The staff here are extremely friendly and helpful.. The communal areas and facilities are clean.. Wifi is great, free and reliable. The negatives... The room is by far one of the smallest and darkest I've ever stayed for 400+ euros per night.. And is further let down by under par fixtures fittings and daily housekeeping is not the greatest either.. The toiletries were not the promised Loccitane so please change your website, but really poor quality products .. So we went out and bought our own ..considering we checked in on one of the quietest days of the year it took an hour to get our room key and you would have expected an upgrade offer.. The bed, was hard uncomfortable and did not have a mattress topper ...possibly the cheapest synthetic mattress ever..Our room was the most remote and last on the property ..hotels cannot be responsible for their guests behaviour I suppose so the rowdy Russians partying until 4am had to be reported three times to reception .. The noise insulation is poor ...however the hotel was very apologetic and we did not suffer a repeat the following evening as management wrote to the guests with a polite warning. Breakfast although plentiful in choice was poor quality in my view...other eateries including Hacienda and Asia Kan get 7/10. This is a good hotel for retirees and children under 10 but conversely could prove difficult to negotiate with disabilities or buggies because of steep steps and slopes poorly lit at night. I think once this hotel was a grand dame but when places like Dubai are on offer for winter sun at similar prices it needs to re think some aspects. Slightly miffed at the 10 euro charge for the beds on the beach.. The 30 euro charge for basic access to the spa which is already looking a little tired. Pool side waiter service is nearly non existent ... Continually hassling the life guard became a chore. If your aged 18-50..single or don't have kids in tow and have experienced real 5 star luxury your going to struggle here... I'm not completely disappointed ... But I'm sorry,for the rate... I'll be seeking my winter sunshine elsewhere in future ...More

Perfection... Will definitely visit again

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Every member of staff was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. That said, Juan and Stefana in the main restaurant were fantastic! The design and architecture of the hotel is beautiful. Nice swimming pools, lots of sun loungers. There is a bit of walking up and down, but even with a pregnant wife, it was fine! The beach is right outside the hotel, which a lot of other hotels in the area don't have. We really enjoyed walking around in and around the hotel. Good choice at breakfast, and it never felt busy or rushed - perfect for a relaxing holiday. We also tried Asia Kan, La Hacienda, Trattoria for some dinners. As vegetarians, the choice was somewhat limited (although this is the same everywhere in Tenerife). However, the food was all of very high standard and full of flavour. Highly recommend a pizza at the Trattoria. Service at every single restaurant was flawless. Spa is beautiful. Treatments were very good, particularly the one for mums-to-be. The one downside is that the food served at the Garden Restaurant was poor quality for the price. We had a sandwich for €9 - it wasn't a great sandwich, and wasn't served with anything else. Although the price includes a full day's use of the facilities, we felt that a couple of hours would be enough - the rest of the hotel has nicer spaces to relax in. Finally, good choice of entertainment. I attended a fitness class one day, which was great. Also, the evening entertainment was brilliant. We had a really good time, and will definitely visit again!

Outstanding hotel

From the moment we arrived my husband and I were made to feel very special. Welcome drink on arrival, checked in very quickly, room lovely, well equipped and very clean. Beds in the room extremely comfortable and the sun beds are the most comfortable we have ever sunbathed on (fallen asleep on!). Staff were friendly and very attentive but unobtrusive and always met you with a friendly smile and greeting. Couldn't rate this hotel highly enough and look forward to returning again next year. Food divine, with fish a real speciality of the hotel, lovely wines and no fight for sun beds. Well done Bahia del Duque, we are two very impressed holiday makers and can't wait for our next visit.More
