I played the Abama golf course for the third time last week. We won't be going again. At 200 euros, it's the most expensive golf course in Tenerife. There are some interesting holes but no more interesting than the 2nd. I play off 8 handicap and hit my drive 230 yards up the hill, right in the middle of the... More

We have a five year old child and found a room big enough for the 3 of us. Staff are very accomadating, food is good to excellent depending where you book in the resort. Beach is small, sandy and fab. Some of the "brits abroad" were a bit moany about the service, but we always found them helpful and fun.... More

If you are used to go to Asia or the Carribbean at Christmas time and you've been hesitant about possibly "trying" the Abama because it's not far and there is no time difference, then... DON'T! It is a ridiculously large place, trying to be chic and upscale when it's just not. It's like a mall on sea. The staff are... More

This is a huge place, transportation is needed for everything: going to breakfast, going to the beach (own "cable car"), going to the spa (excellent therapists), going to this or that restaurant. If you have a villa room, you get your own buggy, if not you must wait for the hotel electric "trains" that will wisk you around. This is... More

Ritz Carlton Abama is quite a large hotel, beautifully designed, reminiscent of the old Moroccan sand fortresses of the Atlas Mountains. It's an oasis of luxury on an island that probably isn't renowned for quality overall. We visited the week before Christmas, and the hotel was predictably quiet and calm. Most guests were families with younger kids, or older couples... More

My husband and traveled here and spent 5 days, 4 nights in March- it is absolutely gorgeous and everyone was so helpful- especially the staff at the Tagor Villas. The rooms are lovely and we had amazing views. It is a bit remote and hard to get to from the airport! We upgraded after 2 nights and stayed in the... More

This is without a doubt one of the best hotels I have stayed but being a resort, it's a bit out of town. The staff are very friendly and helpful, always smiling. The rooms are very spacious and luxuriously furnished and equipped with well stocked fridges. I worked from my room for a few days and there was more than... More

My wife and I spent 6 days in the Abama as part of a Tennis in the Sun holiday package. It was our first stay there. The facilities are impressive. An excellent golf course which I played once, lovely man-made beach with bar and restaurant, good pools, and excellent rooms. The staff are very attentive, and there is a real... More

Around the world, Ritz Carlton stands for a certain high level of service. But the physical packages one encounters can be a bit erratic. Given the very local nature of the hotel business, one has to expect to run across aging properties that have wonderful staffs and terrific guest support. That's what this Ritz is about. Even though the building... More
