My husband and I stayed for 10 days over the Christmas period and felt we had struck gold in Costa Adeje by having a hotel room where you didn't get any road noise. Both previous stays in the resort have lead to being kept awake throughout the night with traffic noise but not this time.
Our room was above the main bar/reception area but we never heard anything with the exception of people going to their rooms on the same corridor, but that is acceptable anywhere.
I agree that the food could have been better in as much as the menu was on a 7 day turnaround instead of the usual 14 days, but the food we ate was very good, I can definitely say that we never had a bad meal, even down at the pool bar, which seems to be a bone of contention with some holidaymakers.
In the restaurants we did feel that the dress code was a little lacks, people came into evening meal still wearing what can best be described as beachwear. Some people made an effort but I do feel that they need to be a little stricter on this. Unfortunately I never saw a manager in the restaurant that could have enforced this policy.
The staff all seemed to be friendly and everyone was polite, yes they did seem to be a little understaffed at times but they did cope really well.
What I liked about the hotel was that everyone staying there was all inclusive so where I have found previously inparticular in Spanish hotels that all inclusive holidaymakers seem to get treated differently in this instance it did not happen.
At the bars it wasn't waiter service you all had to go up to the bar to be served which again made it fair because you just waited your turn and never did I have to wait more a couple of minutes to be served. In both bars there was a coffee machine and a soft drinks machine so you could just help yourself no waiting required.
The hotel is built on the side of a hill which actually makes it very pretty and the hotel is built going down the hillside so rooms are dotted about giving the impression of a little village more than a hotel.
It is quite a steep hill so probably not for the hard of walking, There is a courtesy bus 3 times a day to take you down to the beach and shops and at the bottom of the hill near the pool there is a gate to get out, which is a very good idea, unfortunately during our stay it was a little tempremental in letting people back in, as it is activated by your room key and doesn't always work, but then you get to walk off the food excesses by walking back up the hill and a welcoming drink when you get there.
There was a childrens club and evening entertainment but I cannot comment on these as we didn't use either.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be all inclusive and is happy to just go with the flow and relax.
