Resort Credit Offer
Arrive between 1st-13th November 2014 and 1st-13th March 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 2 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.

love this place cannot wait to return for the 3rd time!
Bit late on adding this review but after reading some of the reviews really feel I had to, as I am shocked that terrible has even been mentioned!
We stayed in the hotel 4 years ago and loved it, so this year we thought we would go one step further and book a villa to have our privacy but still the hotel amenities and what a decision it was!
We booked Villa Las Palmeras for 2 adults and 2 children, 6 and 4 and we would totally recommend this if you can afford the extra expense. We had the main bedroom for adults and the children stayed in the lounge area which did restrict a play area a little indoors but because we had a huge balcony it didn't matter and didn't affect us. As for the bathroom OMG it was the biggest and best bathroom we have ever experienced, the bath tub could have fit 10 adults in and even had a canopy above to see the sky and music was all over the villa but could have different stations like sonus. The bathroom too was refilled with toiletries twice a day and sometimes the soap may have only been used once and replaced which was nice but maybe too extreme!? The only observation regarding the bathroom and the villa would be the toilet, as this was positioned in the main bathroom, opposite the shower it was maybe not good planning for families with young children if they required the toilet while other members showering etc! Also the villas have a communal pool too and we never had to fight for a sunbed like the hotel pools which said it all too. In the afternoons they provided a lovely afternoon tea service.
Also we were meant to have a butler, but who this was we do not know as we were not introduced which thought strange and trying to order certain things from reception even a buggy to get to restaurants sometimes had a language barrier depending on the staff on reception.
We tried the breakfast in El Bernegal which was nice and good choice (even a chocolate fountain!) and the egg station as always but just the volume of people in there was off putting enough and no structure. Luckily the villas had their own restaurant where we could order breakfast much more civilised and order off a menu whatever you desired but slightly longer wait but worth the wait. Even the small differences like Moet available in the villa breakfast and cava in El Bernegal! says it all really for the price difference.
Our only critisms of our week here were as follows: Kids menu was poor and the same in every restaurant, do they think all kids eat nuggets?! Worst experience at dinner was La Hacienda, we were on a half board basis and not informed that certain items had a supplement, they were not shown on the menu that we saw so we got charged for the whole meal and wasn't worth the money!
Wifi wasn't great either and the aircon in the rooms was not very strong especialy being in August.
The beach charges for sunbeds even though we all have the towels from the hotel, wouldn't it be a nice touch for the hotel to sort out a deal with the sunbed people the price you pay for the trip.
The only other thing we feel would have made it more like a true 5* would have been waiter service by the pool.
This is an expensive hotel especially for drinks but you do get what you pay for and we cannot wait to return to the villas, our service and experience was unforgettable and we did not want to come home!!! More

Impressing infrastructure - Disappointment as LHW member
It was our second time in the Duque Hotel. Everything is still in good shape. The beds are of very good quality with fine linens. The garden with all the different corners is the highlight. The food selection is rich, the quality is standard. But overall, the resort is too big to maintain high standard services. Guests are busy early in the morning to reserve their chair places with beach towels. Tipp: A quiet and private place you can find near the restaurant La Hacienda. Including a fridge with beverages at no cost. Breakfast Buffet is still a crowded thing. The most disappointment was the reception. They gave us a ground floor room, but they declared the room as first floor. Ground floor doesn't have privacy, all the people on the walkways are passing by at your room. It took more than two hours to get a room on a higher floor. No sign that they care about repeating guests and LHW members. The Duque was our first LHW Hotel which couldn't offer the advantages for members. For individual guests we recommend the nearby Grand Hotel El Mirador for a higher standard and privacy.More

We stayed at this hotel first two weeks in October and want to go back as soon as possible. The staff were wonderful, in fact everything was. We had a few issues with our room which were sorted out immediately and we have have been promised an an upgrade when we return.
The food and service was first class. If you have a mobility problem there are lifts and there is always someone there to help you and an electric car service to take you down to the sea front if you cannt manage the walk.
An amazing 2 weeks thankyou. See you soon I hope.More

Great hotel, perfect for families
We stayed at Bahia Del Duque having transferred from a disappointing stay at Jardine de Nivaria up the road. The step up in quality was huge even though Bahia Del Duque is somehow ranked worse on trip advisor - maybe it is because of the more discerning guests staying here.
The set up of the hotel is very good with a range of restaurants to choose from each night. The food was of a high standard and service was friendly and efficient.
The location of the hotel is good with easy access the the beach. We found this part of Adeje to be cleaner and much more upmarket to the promenade just 200m towards Playas de las Americas.
The hotel caters well for children, with a kids club, various entertainment and a children's disco in the evening. Perhaps not perfect if you go away as a couple but the hotel did have exclusive adult only areas and an adult only restaurant. The hotel also has a number of pools, some more children orientated than others.
We really enjoyed our stay here and would probably return.More
