Hotel Jardines de Nivaria  


Art Deco meets traditional Spanish here. It’s an unusual mix, but it certainly works. Take the handmade glass dome above the reception. Depicting the stars and constellations you can see from the hotel, it’s the crowning glory to an ornate Art Deco extravaganza. Tall indoor palms soar upwards beside wrought-iron balustrades and pink armchairs are dotted around the chessboard tiled floor.

The exterior, meanwhile, resembles a tropical paradise. Pathways meander through exotic botanical gardens filled with palm trees, flowers and fountains. Nestled amid all this are circular landscaped pools with little bridges and islands. Waterfalls and rock features complete a picture of pool perfection. And there’s ample space on paved terraces and within the gardens to lie back on comfy sunbeds and enjoy that castaway feeling.

Guest rooms are as stylish as the rest of the hotel. Luxurious and elegant with wood-paneling and tiled floors, they’re decorated in tranquil shades of taupe and blue.

The hotel is right above the water's edge, and a lift whisks you down to Playa Fanabe beach. You’ve also got direct access to the seafront promenade. Turn one way and you’re within easy reach of lively Playa de las Americas. Go the other way and it’s a pleasant stroll to upmarket Playa del Duque.

Where dining’s concerned, you’ve got three restaurants to choose from. Tuck into Solandra’s international buffet at breakfast and dinner. Come lunchtime, snack on tapas at La Cascada by the pool. You can enjoy an a la carte dinner here in the evenings, as well. Plus there’s stylish La Cupula for a candlelight dinner à deux.

perfect peace

a beautiful hotel a bit art deco with the tiffany bar which does excellent cocktails 5 nights out of 6 breakfast buffet- excellent variety/ fresh ingredients/good coffee only small complaint every teapot I got over 7 days was chipped not only does this not look good but chipped crockery harbours bacteria -management replace pots or use stainless steel cascade bar-quite good but a bit more variety needed too many sandwiches all sandwiches come with toasted bread chicken burger -the most vile cheap nasty product I have ever come across absolutely no resemblance to chicken we didn't eat in the cupola restaurant as the menu did not appeal rooms-we had a garden view room which is definitely worth the extra the room is lovely -spacious bathroom mostly an older clientele although a few families staff are very polite and helpfulMore

Very nice hotel

Staying here at the moment - Easter weekend. Fantastic hotel. Staff very helpful. Struggling to find anything to complain about. Breakfast amazing. Excellent location but am disappointed to be charged 10 euros for an hour's tennis - that seems a bit steep after paying for the hotel. Never been charged to use tennis court in other hotels. Really recommend this hotel though and will be back very soon. More

Excellent Hotel

Stayed for one week in April 2014. We had booked with a tour operator as it was the only way to get into the hotel due to availability. We had been booked two twin rooms which were not even adjacent, for a family with two young children. Fortunately the hotel reception staff saw this was ludicrous and gave us a free upgrade to a family room, full marks to the hotel, zero marks to Thomson. It is a large Hotel so the pool and restaurants are busy. You need to be up before 8am to reserve a bed at the pool. All facilities were good and clean. Good staff, and lots of them, so the service was always attentive. Two pools, heated seawater and cold freshwater. Good location with the smart area of "Del Duque" and Adeje to one side and the less smart area of Adeje to the other. Only criticisms; It is very busy at the pool and in breakfast. It can feel a little as though kids are tolerated rather than welcomed, there are more facilities which exclude kids than aimed at them. Not cheap, but it is worth it. Would go back.More

Invasion Of The Bean Counters

We have stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions and, as I have pointed out in previous reviews, and has been posted by other reviewers, it does not qualify as a five star hotel despite charging five star prices. The hotel is in an excellent location and the pool and garden areas are first class. The staff are on the whole very friendly and helpful although the bar service tends to let them down on occasion. Again, as other reviewers have pointed out, the bedrooms are somewhat dated with the bathrooms in particular being in dire need of refurbishment – having to negotiate a shower curtain and clamber into a bath to have a shower is not the easiest of tasks when you are of advanced years. Since our last visit the “bean counters” have swung into action with the soap and toiletries being replaced by “squeezy” bottles which are almost impossible to use if you have arthritic fingers which many of the hotel’s elderly guests will have – we had to buy cakes of soap at the local supermarket. The hotel has also responded to the many complaints made over the years regarding the lack of tea and coffee making facilities in the bedrooms but has done so by imposing swingeing charges for a kettle and tea bags. Finally, the drinks in the bar are now served by using measures – I can honestly say that this is the only hotel, bar or restaurant I have ever been in Spain where this practice applied. While no doubt these changes will make some impact on the “bottom line” they are, in my view, petty and unworthy of an establishment claiming to be five star and frankly leave a bad taste. On a positive note we have always enjoyed our holidays at the Jardines De Nivaria and will probably return in the future but its report card would have to read “could do better”. Finally, as I have posted in previous reviews it is impossible, despite my best efforts, to get a really hot cup of coffee in the bar – lukewarm seems to be the best that can be achieved.More
