Set amid soft white stone walls and archways, the soothing design and sea-front location of this hotel is, in my opinion, about as good as it gets in Costa Adeje.
Room 672 had a small corridor leading into a large double bedroom with TV, air conditioning and a tiny Mediterranean-style terrace with chairs and table.
The en-suite, with bidet, hairdryer and dressing gowns, was as good as any other hotel I have seen on the island. The room was quiet at night with a door opening into the corridor screening out the chimes of the lift and the terrace doors doing the same for yapping dogs and an Abba tribute band and other Tenerifian cabaret staples downstairs.
The ground levels of the hotel are spacious but not confusing or cluttered and you can choose to lounge either at a large resort-style pool area in the main hotel or cross the public footpath to a layered terrace which faces the ocean.
We paid £206.55 for two days B&B on Travel Republic and it was fantastic value for money, being several hundred pounds cheaper than the five-star Iberostar Anthelia, where I have stayed on a previous trip.
The breakfast buffet does require sharpened elbows at times but the quality and variety - especially the crêpe station and the chef who parties at club Achaman twice a week - compares well to anything you will find at more prestigious hotels.
The only minuses are really the difference between a four and five-star hotel.
The spa and gym is a fraction of the size of the facilities at the Anthelia, but who really wants to hang around a sauna or steam room in the land of year-round sun?
The buffet area is also smaller than those at five-star hotels nearby but there is pretty much the same choice and there are other dining options available.
The only other very slight downsides were that on arrival the porter opened the taxi door but watched us struggle in with our luggage and there was an evening dress in the top shelf of our wardrobe (it was a little tight around the chest and not in my colour).
The student trainee who booked us in, however, was extremely helpful and professional and she took time to sit down and explain the hotel and its facilities.
The nearest black-sand beach, set in a small bay, is but a few minutes' walk away.
A little further on is the Veronicas Strip - a hellish parade of dated bars and clubs bathed in broken neon lighting and stalked by ever-desperate touts.
Head instead to stylish Monkey's Beach Bar, which is closer to the hotel, and enjoy the milkshake cocktails while looking out at the ocean over candlelit lanterns.
While we were here a large competition was being held at the hotel to find the next Mr and Mrs Tenerife and some of the female contestants, wearing sashes denoting their regional titles, were happily chatting to guests around the ocean-facing pool.
It's hard to imagine a stay getting much better than this.
