I'm staying in the family villas now which are great, with fabulous views & a quiet pool... The service is really bad generally. You wait an age for a drink, usually 20 minutes & then they've often got the order wrong. Lunch at the pool & room service of any kind is slow, slow, slow... if they answer the phone... More

An oasis of luxury just a short trip from the airport. Five star all the way and the staff are so attentive. I am not keen on Tenerife as a holiday destination but staying at The Ritz no need to leave! Golf, tennis, spa and private golden sandy beach-what else do you need? Oh they also have a lovely boutique!... More

The Ritz-Carlton Abama hotel is a big hotel, and that's just the main hotel. When you include the Villa's it's really big. The reason I say it's two different hotels in one is clear once you walk around the property. You have the main building area where there is a community swimming pool and lot's of young families or business... More

I've been visiting Tenerife for 25 years so you could say I've seen it all...but the five star Abama Hotel was something else. For a start they boast not one but TWO Michelin starred restaurants but for me the Argentinian steakhouse was the best. I cannot believe how delicious it was - they even made the traditional Tenerife gofio taste... More

We stayed there for 5 days and we had a very enjoyable time. The travel to the hotel was interesting as we approached the view of this terracotta expanse was impressive. Although we arrived early, we were shown to a hospitality suite until the room was ready. Our room was very nice with a view of the golf course and... More

Its hard to disagree with most of the comments, positive & negative, about the Ritz Carlton Abama. We took notice about the number of kids and as it was Easter booking a Tagor one bedroomed Villa, which are adult only proved wise, but there is a cost. We were taken straight to the upper level villa to complete the check... More

The Abama hotel promised much and largely delivered. First the positives. The weather in Tenerife was ideal and unmatched anywhere in Europe at this time of the year. The journey to the hotel is easy from the airport and I don't think a rental car in necessary. Ours did not get used once in the week we were there as... More

The Ritz Carlton Abama is an exquisite luxury hotel with impeccable service and fabulous facilities. March weather, a temperate 23 centigrade is an all year round average and boy was this welcome after the cold climes of the UK. Restaurants, Michelin starred Japanese Kabuki and romantic El Mirador superb. Breakfast buffet excellent. Lots on the menu for leisure activities including... More

We had a fantastic stay here this week! Even though the weather was a bit dodgy we still loved every minute!! Pros The restaurants were amazing and the staff superb. We ate in every restaurant and had no complaints. The best was MB it was exceptional, the Japanese was also amazing! Mirador for lunch was also exceptional. The hotel is... More

I can only assume those who have given this hotel a glowing review have the patience of an angel, low expectations and money to burn. I will admit nothing can be taken away from the spectacular venue, location and facilities of the Moroccan / North african architecture of the Abama. The management, dinning experience and value for money is vastly... More
