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.

If Escher had ever designed hotels they might have been a bit like this..
Great hotel that rarely feels full. This might be because a lot of guests are permanently lost! The architect who designed it must have had the brain the size of a planet. Good, well-equipped rooms and faultless service. One exit out to the top of the hotel and another down by the beach give it a superbly private feel, as you relax by tiered pools and a selection of restaurants. A private home in the heart of the most rapidly-developing parts of Tenerife.More
If you want a luxury break from reality. this is the place to go.Its like stepping into a another world.The food was lovely and so were the staff. Only slight negative was some of the rooms are ready for bit of refurb but still would not put me off.Beds were super comfy, I even asked if I could buy a set of sheets! They laughed but I was serious even though they did check with housekeeping.The evening entertainment was really good.I am really fussy with hotels but would highly recommend this one and have already started pricing up for my return visit.More

A really first rate resort
I travelled here on the recommendation of a daily newspaper having never been to Tenerife (or indeed the Canary Islands) before. To say I was mightily impressed is an understatement. From the welcome at the door to the cheery smile of the maid everything was happiness personified. I was amazed by the staff - they were all smiling and cheerful - great! Add to that the excellent facilities of the hotel, the food, the room, the bars, the entertainment and you have the recipe for an excellent holiday. Its not often I visit a hotel and swear to return but I will revisit this resort as soon as I can. The breakfast buffet was excellent as were the restaurants we tried (esp La Brasserie) - but there are excellent restaurants nearby also which make the area good for visiting. One low point (and I'm nitpicking) La Hacienda was not up to the standard of the hotel restaurants - strictly speaking not part of the hotel but 'on campus'More
Stayed for 1 night only as a birthday celebration.....hotel club house prepared a celebration cake and cava in our room and everything from reception to the beach club and las Aguas was perfect.....thank you for such a wonderful time we will be back x More
This hotel is not the cheapest but you get what you pay for....beautiful clean, friendly hotel. Several good restaurants to wine and dine in and in the morning a superb buffet breakfast.
Direct access onto the beach should you wish to venture out but in this hotel you probably wont as it is soooooo comfortable and relaxing.
My favourite restaurant was the one near the beach.....superb paella and caesar salad with cod......all washed down with a g&t.....served by friendly staff,
Cant wait to go back.
On a down side and nothing to do with the hotel..i booked with Expedia who took two payments for the flight and hotel and have been a nightmare to get a refund from even though they admit it was their staff who made the error. still no refund after two weeks,,,,,do not book with Expedia....More
