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 classicly styled twin rooms come enhanced with garden views. Additional features include air-conditioning, satellite TV and Wi-Fi, bathrobes and slippers. Plus, there's a balcony or terrace for that bit of outside space. These sleep 3 with 1 extra bed in the bedroom.

We could not have chosen a better resort. The Gran Hotel Bahia Del Duque has everything: fantastic design/layout and grounds with stunning planting everywhere, excellent facilities including tennis, pools and spa, and terrific service. We eould return and can highly recommend it.More
High quality 4 night break at this impressive Hotel
With the weather in the UK a little chilly, we opted for a 4 night break at Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque resort on the Costa Adeje in Tenerife. From the start to the finish, we were very impressed with the friendliness (and lovely costumes) of all of the staff. They couldn't do enough for you. We were on the Bed and breakfast and sampled the lovely breakfast on all of our mornings. After that, it was retire to the sunbed by the Beach Club, where we could easily find our most desirable location - promptly and efficiently served with towels and water to get our relaxing process underway. We would often leave the hotel and go for a little walk (Well in Las Americas actually) which was a few miles and then Taxi back. But that's the nice thing about this place - you have quite a few options about what you want to do - and not be confined to a hotel in the middle of no where. Yes - you are paying a premium but reasonable price - but you get the luxury to go with the price tag. We tended to eat out - and get a feel for a few more restaurant - and one just outside the Hotel called La Torre Del Mirador comes highly recommend - just outside the gates that lead to the beach and 100 yards on the right hand side. We have no complaints about this hotel (although surprised when the beach club bar - and other places closed at 6.00.) All in all highly recommended.More
Excellent family holiday
Hotel beautiful , exceptionally clean
It is an older hotel but maintained to a very high standard
Staff amazing , couldn't do enough for us from getting sun beds , towels , drinks serving breakfast , always happy.
Very good selection of restaurants , food lovely and very fresh , only one down side is that the popular restaurants you have to book up days in advance which we personally didn't like to do but there was always room in one of the restaurants.
All in all a top stay and a very relaxing holiday.More
A true 5 star hotel in every aspect, outstanding service and location
It's a large resort type place built on the hillside stepping down to the beach. 350 rooms. The hotel looks like individual old Italian buildings but are joined together. All designed to look like they've been there for 100 years and it does a great job, the place has loads of atmosphere. It has a look of port merion if you know it. It looks like it's grown like a little village would so the hotel looks 'natural'. There's a clock tower that chimes! Restaurants and wine bars are dotted around but look like a small bar or restaurant would in a small village. You can eat your breakfast looking at the sea, lunch in the beach bar on the sand and then dinner in a variety of in house restaurants or 10 yards up the hill along the prom there's a lovely restaurant call La Torre Del Mirador. Small menu but great food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere, overlooks the beach. Perfect.
The hotel has plenty of natural free form pools all on different levels down towards the sea, 2 saltwater. Varying temperatures from warm to pretty cold. They are built around volcanic rock so the pools have rock walls and in places rocky bottoms, so realistic all that's missing is the fish! But you can get a scrape or two if you're not careful.
The staff have all read the customer service memo. Service is outstanding, faultless, perfect. Towels are brought to your subbed and you just leave them there when you're finished. After breakfast the staff bring round complimentary fruit cocktails. And they never stopped making a fuss of my 6 year old. Can't compliment the staff enough especially Carlos in the wine bar.
The gate from the hotel onto the prom takes you directly onto the white sandy beach. Walk to your right and you come across a beach bar, on the sand built in white timber, very Key West, then next to it a group of bars restaurants again built to look like they've been there for 100 years. Amazing. La Torre Del Mirador has a great view over the beach to the sea and a court yard inside which could be an old village square. Some upmarket shops here too.
Turn the other way and you come across another couple of up market bars and a restaurant again all with stunning views. Some are part of the Hotel so you can charge drinks and food to your room, or eat there as part of your half board.
The whole area and the hotel is spotless, and quite upmarket. You can rent electric bikes, scooters or 4 wheel mobility scooters and ride along the prom. Turning right out of the hotel past the restaurants mentioned above and you pass a couple more hotels, a chill out bar (very expensive), a sports bar and fish restaurant, these are a little less up market. Go the other way for some stunning views, after half a mile there's a row of very nice restaurants set between the prom and the beach. These are less pretty than those near the hotel but have nice views over another beach. Travel further and you move very down market near the mariner. Past the marina and close to playa d'las americas and it becomes cleaner and modern. But that's maybe 2 miles from the hotel.
Overall spectacular location, beach and views. Outstanding service, nothing is too much trouble. Possibly ticks all of my boxes and I think it's the hotel I've been looking for for years.More
Amazing stay in Las Palmeras!!!
This was our first time staying in this hotel in Tenerife and we were so happy we made the right choice. We booked a 1 bedroom villa Las Palmeras which the staff made to accommodate myself and my husband plus our 2 small children aged 2 and 4.
The girls loved having our own private pool in the villa. There is also a large pool for villa guests which was also perfect for us all as it was peaceful and not overcrowded.
The staff could not have been more helpful from the Manager of the villas to the Housekeeping ladies. Nothing was too much and all our needs were met with pleasure.
Breakfast was excellent in the villas restaurant and offered anything you can think of. If it wasn't on the menu then they would source it for you. This the same with lunch.
The entertainment in the hotel every night was brilliant. The children's entertainer was excellent and had all the kids up dancing every night for the children's mini dosco which was followed by some form of entertainment either dancing, singing, magic etc.
The only one negative we have is the fact out of all the hotels restaurants we couldn't book in any as all were fully booked till the following week. We now know to book well in advance for the restaurants but it was a let down as they all looked superb.
We cannot rave out the hotel enough and cannot wait to book our next stay.
A must to visit with family or as a couple seeking romance. It offers it all.More
