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

We have been going our annual week golf trip for 30+ years. This year we were 12 and the political situation in Turkey made us switch to Tenerife where the golf offering has always been inferior to other areas. Abama was selected as the best on the island and we enjoyed a fabulous week's weather. The hotel is a good... More

We stayed 8 days at Abama, and, if given the chance, would have loved to stay many more. Everything about this Ritz was 5 star, from the room, to the beauty of the hotel, to the staff, the golf course, the other facilities, and the food. Not one moment of the experience was below our fondest expectations. We will return... More

The first thing that I would like to mention is the staff, they have been excellently trained and were all helpful and smiled from the doormen who welcome you to the receptionists and restaurants staff. Cristina the pool lady was exceptional in looking after us, especially when it was raining. The hotel is very large, so slightly daunting at first.... More

Stayed for 7 night in Feb playing golf. This is an excellent hotel with superb service. The golf course is interesting and demanding without being impossible for the average golfer. Service in the clubhouse is excellent - clubs retained after a round and loaded into buggies ready for the next day. Stayed on a half board basis - food was... More

Abama is very big. To be what one would epect from a Ritz-Carlton would have needed a large contingent of very well trained staff. Sadly neither the number nor the quality were evident during our trip. A bucket of ice took an hour and three calls to materialise. The Cubanica bar, whose promise of exotic cocktails and fine cigars got... More

I was pleased to read that you thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience in MB and found the Spa wonderful. It is disturbing to see that your holiday was tainted by the knowledge and training of our Ladies &... More

We stayed in the hotel for the second time and the stay was truly wonderful. Their new club level made this time the stay even more special - opens from 7am - 10pm great variety of fresh food and drinks all day; and the service couldn't be any better.

Overall this is a great hotel and it's a great place to spend a relaxing week. It has everything you'll need from nice rooms, dinning, pools, beach, sports facilities. The place is spotless and the staff are very friendly and helpful. That said there are a couple of things to note. 1) The hotel is in the middle of nowhere.... More

We were there for 5 days in February with our 4 children (from 2 to13). Warm and sunny enough to share our days between the pools and the beach. We had planned to visit the island a bit, instead we stayed at the hotel the whole time. Great restaurants (our preference goes to the Argentinian which has amazing meat), great... More
