This beachfront hotel comes with Art Deco interiors and tropical gardens starring two lagoon pools.
Design-wise, Art Deco meets traditional Spanish at this deluxe hotel. Hop in the lift and you’ll be on Playa Fanabe beach in seconds. Back at the hotel you’ll find two lagoon pools tucked among tropical gardens.
Food-wise, options include a Mediterranean à la carte restaurant and a tapas place by the pool. There’s also a stylish spa, sports like tennis and squash, and high-calibre evening shows.
Cascada restaurant is the place to come for tapas lunches and à la carte dinners specialising in international dishes and Mediterranean food. If you get peckish outside mealtimes, snacks and drinks are served here between 10.30am and 6pm.

We have visited this hotel at least 8 times and have by now given it our best chance. Unfortunately, however, we must report that the overall hotel-quality is degrading. The hotel has basically two excellent features, namely the terrace- and pool-area plus the friendly "ground-service". The food-quality, however, is degrading year by year, especially the food offered in the large "buffet-restaurant"...
Because many hotels on the Kanarian-Islands are what one could describe as "top-managed", their Management often develop "home-blindness". Management doesn't seem to listen to their guests' most constructive critique but rather continue their course.
This seems to be the case with regard to "Jardines de Nivaria". Slowly but surely the hotel has degraded it's "cost/benefit ratio". It's latest saving-programs have further
contributed to this negative trend.
We have decided not to visit this hotel any more in future, because one a l s o gets the unpleasant impression that the ground-staff is treated rather arrogantly by their semi-educated management. It would consequently not hurt this hotel at all to perform a "Palace-Revolution" = i.e. totally replacing the management with new fresh professionals. The building-facilities, the general staff and e s p e c i a l l y the location justifies this.More

Luxury Garden Hotel with Beautiful Pool
We have just returned from a two week holiday at the Jardines de Nivaria - Costa Adeje.
The outstanding features of this hotel are the beautiful gardens and pool area. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with all fittings expected from a five star hotel - mini bar, safe etc.
We were booked on a bed and breakfast basis so our only restaurant experience was at breakfast time. The buffet offering was extensive but the approach to the 'help yourself' areas became very crowded. People circulation is a problem.
The Pool Rules notice states - No Booking of Sunbeds. On our arrival at the pool each morning we found the sunbeds in the prime locations had towels and books on them but no people! As there were a few empty sunbeds each day this was no problem for us but it obvious that the pool rules were not being policed. Having said this we have only visited one hotel where all towels were removed from people-less sunbeds during breakfast, once a day.
Our booking at the Hotel Jardines de Nivaria was for a sea view room at a premium. When shown our room we were surprised that the offering was behind the pool with more view of palm trees than sea. As the room had a lovely, private balcony we accepted this room even though it had a 'tree view' not a 'sea view'.
Generally we enjoyed our visit, found the staff very accommodating and loved the garden and pool area.More

The perfect break
We returned this week from a one week break at the Jardines de Nivaria, having visited there two years ago. This time we took two friends and had adjacent rooms. The hotel has a number of 'blocks', our accommodation was in rooms 110 and 111 which are on the ground floor of the Guajara building. We booked a package with Prestige Holidays, our first time with this company and I was very impressed by their service, from meeting us on arrival at Tenerife Airport, till our departure at the security gate at the airport. The 'Prestige' girls were friendly and very efficient. Transfers were part of the deal and they could not have been better, just four of us in a virtually new
Mercedes minibus, whisking us off to the hotel where we were greeted with a free welcome drink.
My first impression of our room (suite) was of some disappointment. We had no sea view nor view of the pool, just a small area of garden which seemed very constrained. However, as time went by we did appreciate the quiet isolation. We were assured that if we returned we would be afforded a room with a view. The hotel is closing next year (2016) from May till September for extensive refurbishment, although it is difficult to imagine that they could improve the facilities.
The grounds are delightful, the pool clean and very warm, with a powerful hot-tub and a large fresh water pool of somewhat cooler water for those brave enough to try it. Towels are provided in duplicate, one to cover the padded chairs the other for drying. These can be exchanged as often as desired as indeed can the towels and bed linen in the rooms.
Breakfast offered a good selection of fruits, juices and all the usual offerings including omelettes cooked to order. We dined each evening in the Buffet Restaurant which we found to have plenty of variety with 'cook while you wait' selections of fresh fish and fresh meat. Only the puddings were a little disappointing but then, as an Englishman, I do enjoy the traditional 'heavy' deserts, (Spotted Dick and Treacle Tart with Custard, etc.) that I suppose is unreasonable to expect when abroad. I certainly did not lose any weight on this holiday.
Fortunately the weather was excellent and late into the evening we were able to sit outside to watch the entertainment which, overall, was quite good.
Will I go to this hotel again? A definite yes as will our friends who already want me to book again for next yearMore
Relaxed and refreshed!
We were very pleased with our garden room with a large terrace complete with sunbeds, parasol and table and chairs which was all kept spotlessly clean every day,
The swimming pool was a joy and always warm and inviting. There was a great view of the sea from the sundeck and easy access to the beach. The hotel staff were most professional and unobtrusive. There was a large selection of food to choose from, we particularly enjoyed the porridge every morning. We enjoyed a "night at the opera" sitting outside on a warm evening.The setting amongst the tropical flowers and trees was lovely. Everything was perfect.More
