BRILLANT! Great value for money

This was our second time visiting the Bahia and honestly so glad we returned! The staff are excellent and the hotel is beautifully located close to the boardwalk and shops! The restaurants are fantastic with a varied menu choice and the staff are always too happy to accommodate the fussy eaters amongst you and cook something up for you if you like! The pools are clean and great for kids! Kids club is a bit small... Only concern that we could see. The reception staff are professional and polite. We love the location and service and will probably return again next year as it ticks the right boxes with kids on tow... 5 star service and food! More

Superb family holiday

We've just returned from a fantastic family holiday in Bahia del Duque. We stayed for one week, myself, my husband our three kids (4, 3 & 1) and my in laws. The standard double rooms are lovely. We had two connecting rooms for us and our three children which was perfect, more than enough space for all. We had no view at all but it didn't bother us on this occasion, we were just happy with the room layout, the fact that the balcony was closed off safely for the kids and that we were next door to the rest of our family. The hotel feels quit complicated at first but you quickly get used to the layout and after a day or two we had worked out the best paths to use with the buggies. As many others have said its not ideal for people with limited mobility but its doable. The food was excellent! We've stayed in many places where the "a la carte" restaurants are simply a spin off of the main buffet restaurant but not at all here. We tried La Hacienda, La Tasca, La Brasserie, La Trattoria, Asia Kan and the buffet twice. We ate very well in all except for maybe Asia Kan, this wasn't great in our opinion but perhaps we chose badly. The sushi was fine though. The buffet restaurant is very good, plenty of choice but perhaps a bit badly laid out at breakfast. Service, in all restaurants, was fantastic. Very attentive, polite and friendly. I used the Spa twice and it is an absolute MUST! Such an oasis of calm away from the main pools and the treatments themselves were first class as were the treatment rooms & ambience. The kids club was good, the staff are excellent and our kids really enjoyed themselves. I just have two issues. One is that I find it bizarre that you don't have to sign your child in and out? And a photo of both parents along with the child wouldn't be too difficult to organise. I dropped the girls off and then described my husband for pick up which they seemed to find amusing (yes, he will be the one they call pappa but regardless). It just all felt a bit lax in terms of security. My other issue is, that for a hotel of this stature, the kids club is quite small and they could really do with investing in it a bit more. It needs updating and many of the toys need replacing. God knows it costs enough to stay there, they should pump a bit of cash that way as for people like us the kids club is as important as food and service. The sun lounger reservations with towels is beyond frustrating!! There are signs saying you can't do it but by the time we were heading down for breakfast so many beds were reserved already. I find this ridiculous in a hotel of this standard. I know its not the hotels fault, and that this happens everywhere, but they facilitate it 100%. There is staff putting the towels out for people so they see that it's happening and say nothing. There should at least be a time cap or something, if people aren't back after 30 minutes then the bed should become free again. It wouldn't be that difficult to implement. My final point is airport transfer. We contacted the hotel prior to arrival and asked if they could help us with airport transfer. It was no problem, a private minibus would be arranged with all the necessary car seats but the cost would be EUR 98 each way! Incredibly pricey but we assumed it was the best and most convenient option. The bus that came to pick us up was a clapped out banger with no aircon. Anyway, we were happy with the cold bottled water that was waiting for us and we were on our way just minutes after picking up our bags. However, for the return to the airport I asked reception to organise airport transfer and they called a taxi company. A very nice Mercedes Viano with all the car seats and functioning air con...for EUR 27!! This is pretty scandalous. Why we were not offered this option in the first place, I do not know. But we should have been at least given the option. Anyway, the last couple of points aside we really did have a wonderful holiday and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We certainly hope to return!More

Sofelu,

5* Tenerife!

We wanted a change for a villa rental so looked for a 5* resort - we got it! The resort and service is truly 5*. The staff could not have been more helpful. It was a perfect place to unwind with kids. Even though the resort was full, it never felt it. There are a number of different restaurants and pool areas (seawater pool is great) so there is plenty of variety. The kids (7 and 10) had a ball at the slightly cheesy mini disco each night and were able to step in and out of the kids club entertainment as they liked. They loved it. The make your own burger cafe at lunch time was a big hit. Take the trouble to visit Loro parque (wildlife park/zoo) which is an hour away but is a fabulous day out. We had great tennis lessons with Volker Reichart the tennis coach. We had a one bedroom suite with an interconnecting twin room for the kids. This worked really well. This is a great option for a family holiday with no treking to the supermarket, cooking, making beds or looking for a clean towel! The resort is on several levels so I would not recommend it for anyone with mobility issues.More

Another fantastic holiday

We have just returned from another wonderful holiday at this stunning hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff providing excellent service always. Great choice of restaurants within the hotel all offering high standards of food, our favorite being the Beach Club for lunch, where chill out music is played live while you dine. Our room was beyond our expectations...many thanks to the reservation team! Thank you again Bahia del Duque for a another year of great memories!More

Highly recommended!

This is a great hotel which offers a very different experience to your average holiday in Tenerife. The rooms are very nice, I stayed in a suite with windows all around and a jacuzzi bath. Acqua di Parma toiletries. Parking is free and seemed to be quite plentiful. There were several restaurants to choose from. The most popular was the Italian one which was always busy but I really loved the Asian one where the food was superb. The Spanish and Mexican ones were ok. The breakfast buffet was excellent. There is easy access to the beach although it is not a private one. There is a helipad and health club (extra charges). The staff were lovely and very friendly. The grounds are beautiful although on many levels so not ideal if you have mobility issues. There are golf carts available to take you around but you have to wait for them. The swimming pools were very nice. Different temperatures, salt water one etc. Kids club was very good although quite small but the carers do take the kids around the complex for a run around in the squash courts or for donkey rides around the hotel square. There was entertainment every evening. Usually a bit cheesy but ok for kids. It is a large hotel but manages to feel quite intimate because it is on different levels and because there are lots of pools. Highly recommended.More
