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.
These junior suites are classic in style with a balcony or terrace and views of the garden. These warm and inviting suites come with all the essentials like air-conditioning, satellite TV and Wi-Fi. They sleep 4 with 1 extra bed in the bedroom.

I am reluctant to review the Casa Ducales area of the hotel as it seems to be a well kept secret, and long may it remain so. This is hospitality at it's best. You are met at the door by a member of staff who is familiar with your booking and sat down in a beautiful and relaxing room and offered a drink while checking in. By this time you can sense that you have chosen the right place for your holiday.
The staff in the main part of the hotel are all professional and helpful but the standard of people working in Casa Ducales is first class. They all seem to speak every european language with ease and no request is too much trouble for them. Every time you enter or leave the building you are greeted warmly by name.There is a butler assigned to the area, but butler is not really the correct term for him as Hans is really a host, concierge and raconteur rolled into one.
There is a package of extras that you receive in Casa Ducales from various food offerings throughout the day to endless drinks should you want them. Nothing is skimped on. When you return to your room you never know what will be waiting for you as there are several little surprises throughout the week.
My wife and I had intended to spend time looking round the island, but we enjoyed the hotel so much that we cancelled our hire car, and didn't regret it. We ate in the hotel every day, there are many restaurants to suit all tastes. I think everyone will find something they like here, and not unreasonably priced for a five star hotel in my opinion.
I was told that there was 80% occupancy in the hotel when we were there but it is so spacious you often felt it must be almost empty.
Virtually everyone we spoke to in the hotel had visited before, and I can see why. We will definitely be returning.More
A cut above the rest in Costa Adeje
We have returned to the Hotel four times in the last three-year period. The setting is superb, a large hotel almost village like, but with an intimate feel. The food is good and served by with caring staff. This is top quality accomodation not cheap but we'll worth the stretch of your purse strings!More
This was a special holiday for both our 70th birthdays.We chose this hotel because of its location right on Del Duque fabulous beach.The service was first class from reception,pool attendants,maid service and restaurants staff.There is a multiple choice of food restaurants each with their own specialality.The buffet breakfast was excellent we couldn't see anything they didn't cater for.Although we are quite active for our age we did think some people may find difficulty in getting around hotel and down to the poolside because of the layout,a lot of steps and slopes but you could ring for a golf buggy and driver to take you up or down to your room or the gardens and pools.More

Fabulous and Relaxing
what a beautiful, peaceful place with lovely gardens. when I read the reviews before my stay I was under the impression it would be quite a noisy complex. when I arrived it was quite noisy as some children had arrived and the entertainment was in full swing. However this calmed down after 10.30 pm and after a long day I was pleased!! full praises to Thomson at the airport who were fully organised especially late at night directing people quickly where to go to get their coaches and taxis. the hotel grounds are absolutely stunning and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. I loved the Asia Kan restaurant and the breakfast restaurant which did buffets in the evening. Every evening there was one theme; french, oriental, spanish, Italian, the food was delicious. Mag
If you go out the security gates at the bottom of the complex, turn left and walk a few yards there's lots of cafes and a shopping center that sell mainly named brand clothes and there's also a supermarket and a souvenir shop. The beach is literally straight in front of you and plenty of people were sunbathing on it.
My room had a fabulous corner view of the sunbathing area where the la brasserie restaurant was and also one if the pools. The cleanliness of my room was good but could have done with a hoover underneath the sink area and also the doors leading to the balcony because it was so windy kept banging shut as they werent sliding doors perhaps this could be changed as it was quite annoying at times even with a chair holding the door open.The sunbeds were fabulous with mattresses on them so was able to lie on all day! there's also bar near this sunbathing area where you can order drinks so this was great! the customer service was great everywhere even from those who didn't speak very good English! It is a big complex and I met several people who also were as lost as me trying to find their rooms!
The weather was pretty good for may but it did rain in late afternoons for the last 3 days of my holiday but this didn't spoil anything.
Special thanks to the drawing artist chris who produced a perfect picture for me. He truly is talented. He sits near the breakfast restaurant every day.
All in all it was a very enjoyable and restful holiday and will return next year at some point.More
