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.

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.
I must admit that I have never be a keen fan of the Canary Islands. But, our October hunt for high temperatures, sun, no time zone shift and comfort led us to Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque in Tenerife. And we were not disappointed! The resort is an oasis within a typical Tenerife tourism machine, with beautiful buildings, numerous pools, with salt water as well as freshwater, and close to ocean beach if that is your preference. And very comfortable sun beds. The 8 restaurant vary in quality (we didnÂ´t try them all, though), non really outstanding, but ok. The Las Aquas is definitely the best - and the most expensive. The breakfast, though, is absolutely perfect. You wonÂ´t miss anything! The rooms and beds were as expected, adequate size with good quality beds. Finally, the staff is close to perfect: always a smile, very helpful and service minded. I wouldÂ´t say that my Canary Islands skepticism has transformed into enthusiasm, but next time I am seeking summer in October, variety, nice surroundings and comfort, I gladly visit The Duque again.More

AGAIN AGAIN & AGAIN
3 visits this year tried to get our 4th (oct) in but were completely booked so sadly stayed next door at the Iberostar Mirador :(
September stay was amazing staff remembered us and even our names felt like coming home. You know when you arrive at the hotel your just gonna sit back and enjoy. My only real gripe is the evening entertainment they have a lovely cocktail bar and every night a live performer but it's so boring they only sing love songs and almost the same ones with every performer, but think this is the same for all the hotels in the area :(
We will go back just because it's our favourite hotel hence we've been so many times in 1 year.
Thank you Gran Hotel Bahia Del Duque Resort.More

My sister and I were lucky enough to spend a few days at this most magnificent of hotels. From the moment you walk in to jugs of iced lemon or lime water, fruit at the reception desk, there is nothing one could fault. The place is beautiful without being stuffy, well equipped, well appointed, spotless and has enough facilities to keep you amused for hours. There were several themed restaurants and numerous small swimming pools, lovely gardens and a dance floor/stage for evening entertainment.
The buffet breakfasts and dinners were enormous, the room was end to end food with every taste and diet catered for without having to ask. It was fresh and delicious.
The spa was well designed and extremely relaxing.
A truly faultless experience. One word of caution only, booking sailing trips etc through their centre was at least 10% higher than booking direct.More

Luxury for the whole family!
We stayed at a double room in the 'Casas Ducales' for a week in early October and had a great time. The service was impeccable and truly personal, the food (we had half board) enjoyable, the pools like the rest of the hotel very spacious.
Most of all our 4 year old son enjoyed his stay, and we found the service, all staff from reception to housekeeping very child friendly: From a toy he was given as a welcome, through a surprise left in the room (some cookies and milk), to the 'Duqui club' which provides free childcare throughout the day. Not only did our son love the programme there so much he could not wait to get back, it also gave mom and dad a relaxing few hours at the pool!
Thanks to all the staff for making it such a special holiday for us.More

Attention to detail
My wife and I stayed for 8 nights starting at the end of September. We arrived late in the evening to a superb welcome. We were even left a nice meal in the room as it was too late for the restaurant. Our room was lovely with lots of little things to enhance our stay e.g. chocolates, flowers, water.
The complex is very large and a little difficult to figure out initially. We elected for half board using the buffet each night. The food varied a fair bit- maintaining the interest to the last day. I'm keen on activities. I found the reception staff very friendly, helpful and exceptionally knowledgeable.
Wifi was free and operational most places- hurrah!
Very difficult to fault the place.More
