Bespoke family villas include interconnecting deluxe rooms and one- bedroom suites, ideal for large family groups to stay together while enjoying an exclusive menu of amenities. A perfectly pampering spa of 2,500 m2 offers an indulgent menu using Espa, Spanish brand Sepai, and native island ingredients.

Amazing stay! The staff welcomed us upon arrival and upgraded us to beautiful Villa Rm 252 as we were celebrating special occasion! The Villa Ambassador team (Victoria, Anastasia, Laura, Carla, Oscar, Marwin, Jaime and Basma) were amazing! Cathy (housekeeping), Joni (infinity pool), Eduardo (main bar) and everyone else we interacted with were just amazing and top-notch! This is what service is all about! Highly recommend! Cannot wait to come back we have a new favorite place and hotel !

Hotel's Favorite
Love this hotel and here’s why, The staff…they are fantastic, always around, attentive & professional and so friendly. They are the reason we love this hotel so much The pool areas…lifeguards, clean pools, enough sun beds, attentive staff ALL of the time Breakfast….anything you want, and as much of it too. The beds….I have never slept so soundly as I have in these beds Lobby area….great live music with fab cocktails, what’s not to love? Beach area….although it’s not a “private” beach there is an area for hotel guests, again, lifeguards on duty and attentive. The only con I can think of is…it’s a high end hotel, the mark up on food & drink is higher…BUT, the surroundings are what you pay for…but it’s worth it!

Stayed for 5 nights in a spacious suite in the main building - it had a lovely large balcony area overlooking the Koi carp pond. The hotel was well maintained and clean albeit a little dated. We opted for half board and the choice of restaurants was great with varied menus. All the food was of a very high standard, we could easily have stayed another 5 days and not gotten bored of the food options. Our favourite restaurants were El Mirador and Verona, they had lead us to have high expectations for Kabuki but this was unfortunately underwhelming. We were a little worried that it would be full of kids running around having accidentally booked a suite in the main building instead of the adults only section but the resort is so big and we used the quiet pool area so we hardly noticed all the kids staying in the resort. Overall this was a wonderful stay, the level of service from all the staff was phenomenal (e.g. although the breakfast buffet service was extremely busy everyday the hostess remembered our drinks order from the day before!) The staff definitely make this place! Only minor gripe is that there is no mini-fridge in the room (only a chiller which did not cool drinks!)

Our first holiday with away! The hotel staff were exceptional! The different restaurants gave us a variety of meals each day. A special appreciation goes to our room attenders, they kept our room super tidy and went the extra mile in making animal shape towels for our toddler daughter! She loved walking into the room and seeing the different animals after a day out exploring. We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you.

I'll give this place 10 out of 10 for excellent room, amazing service in all areas, cleanness, awesome staff, beautiful landscape, and more... The staff in the club room were extremely helpful with providing tips on places to see, help with arranging a taxi or tour, and also providing excellent service with food.

Having stayed at many RitzCarltons around the world (but not here) we thought we would check out the beach club as we were touring the island. However, i warn anyone not to do this as the one positive (lovely sand and water) was more than outweighed by the negatives - you will be paying €50 for two basic beds (without cushions) and an umbrella the price of which is on the top side. Also, you would expect a 5* hotel to have matching beds that don’t have holes/rust in them - the parking (if can find any, as most of the spots are taken for staff) is at the top of steep hill (20+ Minute walk to the beach on the way down) - they do have a train that takes passengers from the top, but only ‘guests’ are allowed. So even if you are spending money for a day pass, they won’t let you on and would rather carry on with no one on it - they do have a funicular railway that runs to the beach, but again - not a guest….not allowed!…..as a very curt and unhelpful woman told me - the food on the beach is dire. I had a chicken/avo poke bowl smothered in tasteless mayo. The super cold chicken had the taste and consistency of day-old potato and the overall experience was of heavy baby food…..Inedible…..you should be ashamed to serve such awful food - then the walk back to the car…. - if you don’t want to offer day, beach club access thats fine - but say so. Spending €100+ for this was definitely not worth it……

Chaos! Overbooked with children. No escape even in Michelin starred restaurants. No consideration given for couples who look forward to a civilized holiday. Obviously profit comes before the customer. This is a huge hotel and one to avoid.

Dear JillieD_12, You are right at pointing out that on your stay dates there were many families with children staying in our beautiful resort. Unfortunately, these dates coincided with half-term school holidays. I understand when searching for peace and tranquility, coming to Tenerife on that time was misfortunate and, I apologize for the impact this had on your stay. I can guarantee that outside these exceptional dates, including the Christmas holidays, Easter and a couple of summer weeks, the majority of guests at our hotel tend to be adults, and the ambience and atmosphere remains quiet and calm. Additionally, we also offer a more exclusive alternative in our adults-only Villas, where both the adults-only pool and the pool at the adults-only street are exclusive for guests older than 18 years of age. These areas remain peaceful and calm throughout the year regardless of the dates. Kind regards, The Ritz Carlton Abama Team

I stayed here with my daughter for a week in October and the hotel was simply wonderful. The staff, from the cleaning team, the pool staff, the restaurant staff, the reception team, they could not have been more attentive. the food in all the restaurants was amazing, there is a restaurant with 2 Michelin stars and the experience was fantastic, a real treat on holiday, and its in the hotel! There is a quiet pool, and also a family pool and the hotel has its own private beach with transport from the hotel every 15 minutes to the beach. I have stayed in Tenerife a few times and at his hotel many years ago before it was a Ritz Carlton, Its the best hotel in Tenerife and by a good way. Is it expensive, yes, but you get what you pay for. Its worth it 100 times over. I will definitely be back. thank you to al the staff for making our holiday wonderful.

It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Ritz-Carlton Abama. Apart from the check in process, where we were initially put into rooms overlooking the car park, we have nothing but praise for the friendly staff and lovely location of Abama. The food was great, with a high standard of quality as one would expect at the Ritz-Carlton, and also with ample choice. Some minor areas for improvement would be the quality of cocktails, which weren't as refined as they could be, and barista made coffee at breakfast would be welcomed. If you plan to stay, we'd suggest making dinner reservations in advance by email, to avoid taking up extra time at check in. Txoko and Mirador are highly recommended, and the Beach Club is great if you're down by the beach, where we spent most of our time. A special thanks to Diana at Txoko and Magda at the Breakfast Bar for going that extra step in making our stay super enjoyable. If you're looking for a warm sunny break in October, only a 4hr flight from Heathrow, we'd recommend Abama and on a full board basis. Thank you team Abama for having us! Kim, Rachel and family
