Arriving at this hotel is a bit like stepping into a fairytale film set. Quirky turreted buildings resemble small castles in shades of lemon, terracotta and pink. And they’re laid out village-like around pretty squares. But it’s not just its charming architecture that sets this place apart. On every level, it deserves to be part of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World chain.
Take dining as an example. You’ve got nine restaurants here - from a French brasserie with chandeliers and potted plants to a rustic Spanish venue with checked table cloths and a strumming guitarist. One night you’ll be enjoying the informality of an Italian trattoria, the next putting napkin to collar in a restaurant that’s rather like a dining room in a stately home. There’s even a contemporary restaurant that wouldn’t look out of place in uptown New York. What's more, nearly all the restaurants offer up a children's menu, ideal if you're with the little ones.
The guest accommodation, meanwhile, is in comfortable rooms and sumptuous villas. Plump armchairs, minibars and TVs come as standard in the bedrooms, while the villas really raise the bar on luxury. In these, you’ve got a private pool and garden, whirlpool bath and seriously opulent furnishings.
The pool scene is pretty special, too. Discreet sun terraces are dotted around five swimming pools that descend in tiers towards the beach. And for ‘beach’, read ‘800 metres of soft golden sand’. Plus there's a children's pool, kids' club and teens' club to keep the younger guests happy.

Fabulous location but not 5 star
This hotel is stylishly terraced into the hillside above one of the best beaches in Tenerife. The location is excellent but there are many steps and uneven surfaces that can be challenging for older clients. No problem if you are physically able but very difficult for disabled people. We have stayed in many 5 star hotels and found this one, lacking in general maintenance as many rooms desperately need updating. The floors are tiled with glazed terracotta tiles which look pretty but there were many tiles broken and chipped in our room and connecting stairs and corridors . This devalues the hotel as most 5 star hotels would have a programme of continual maintainace that is not evident here. Still a very nice hotel , with some good touches . Many staff are friendly . Try the grumpiest waiter in the world at the beach bar which closes at 6pm , the best part of the day!!! The acid test of any hotel is what they do when you have problem. Sadly the Bahia did not love up to my expectations based on other reviews. The customer service we received from management was poor and unprofessional . So in essence , really nice hotel , great position , decent food, tired rooms , needs more maintenance and more staff. Would we go back ... Probably .More

Exellent Customer Service
We have just returned from a very relaxing week at Bahia Del Duque. We can not recommend this hotel highly enough. The customer service is incredible, nothing is to much trouble. We found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Whilst there we tried out most of the restaurants on the resort and found the food to be a very high standard, served promptly and with the same very friendly high level of customer service found everywhere on the resort. We have stayed at a number of hotels that are members of the Leading Hotels Group and although the basic room would benefit from an upgrade when it comes to customer service this one is the best. We can't wait to return!!!More

this is the best hotel I have stayed in Costa Adeje. The room was clean and turned down every night. It had modern facilities and a touch old elegance, lovely powerful shower and a balcony with an amazing view over the complex and the sea. The service was second to none and the staff always greeted you with a big friendly smile which projected their sincerity in wanting to serve you. They have seven restaurants all serving wonderful food with different themed nights. Breakfast is served inside or out on a massive terrace served by their staff in national costume. Never had a problem getting a sun bed when required, which were of a high standard and very comfortable.More

Little Touches That Make All The Difference
Having just returned from our week away at "Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque", trip advisor seems the right place to say just a little thank you and place in wriritng our thanks. We booked at very short notice having decided to swap from another hotel within a stones throw of this one and are very glad we did so. I e mailed the hotel upon booking to explain that we had convinced the grandparents to look after 4 of our children for the week to give my wife a much needed 'break' and although we had booked a garden room, we were travelling with our 5th child, our 10 month old daughter. As there may be evenings that we were balcony bound while she's sleeping, a view of some sort would be appreciated....They came through for us in abundance. We were allocated room 165 which had a pool view, sea view and got the sun for pretty much the whole day only disappearing mid evening. Further to this, we had a very pleasant bottle of champagne on ice, fresh fruit and a card addressed to my wife wishing her in particular a pleasant stay and to enjoy her well earned break waiting in our room on arrival which we enjoyed on the balcony. As the wonderful staff at this hotel knew we were celebrating a little occassion whilst in situ, we came back one evening half way through our stay to find a second bottle of champagne, congratulations card signed by management and huge plate of chocolate covered starwberries!! A nice touch which we are very thankful for. Facilities are excellent, pools are lovely and warm and the location second to none. The gardens and grounds really are quite splendid. Not easy with our daughter in her buggy as lots of steps but there is a step free route, I need the exercise and if all became a bit too much, you can simply call a buggy who will whizz you anywhere within the grounds you wish to go! We have stayed at many hotels. Where some get it right and some so terribly wrong is the staff they employ. Not just training, but the hiring of poeple who genuinly care and take pride in there work. The Bahia del Duque has these in abundance. It is one thing nodding politely at adults and ensuring they have what they desire. Its another to respond to complaints quickly and ensure they are forgotten. It is another thing COMPLETELY to be so selfless and charming in every regard to our daughter. Every member of the team, from reception, socoristas, waiters, waitresses and maids made a fuss of her and took time out of whatever they were doing to say hello and have a little giggle. I know this isn't on everyones agenda, but to see my young daughter being made to feel special along with everyone else ticked so many boxes. In a nutshell, because of the staff, we were made to feel extremely welcome and had a wonderful time, so much so that the day prior to our departure, my wife was on her sunbed checking availability for the same time next year! Again, thank you for making our holiday and daughter feel so very special. You never know, if we can afford it we might well return with our other 4 children and see how well you cope with the 7 of us!! A special place with very special staff.More
Very disappointed with this hotel. First room we were offered was musty and stale, second (supposed to be an upgrade), was still of poor quality. While the gardens, grounds, setting and service in this hotel were excellent, the rooms are in urgent need of upgrading. Very few lifts in this very large hotel, so lots of walking along very long corridors. Also no outside bars in the beautiful grounds open in the evenings to watch the sun setting on the water right in front of the hotel. Bizarre!More
