Spent a week staying B&B at the Abama with a friend. It's paradise. You don't have to leave the grounds as its extensive and fun to explore. A very Morrocan feel to the decor and its all very photogenic. Beautiful from every angle. A fantastic selection of restaurants including two with Michelin star awards. We tried Kabuki. It was terrific!! see other my review. The hotel is big enough that you never feel overcrowded. Sometimes we were the only two at the pool. It felt very private. The spa is simply a fantastic experience. We had 3 sessions in the spa and some pampering treatments. Not cheap but all worth the money. Food in all the restaurants was faultless whether formal dining or more casual round the pool or at beach. There was complimentary water available at all the pools and gym (that you'll have to yourself) but if I'm being picky no complimentary fuit available in public spaces as I'd read prior to trip. We also took the yoga and pilates classes every evening that were complimentary to guests. The champagne available every breakfast made up for it!! Breakfast was normal hotel buffet style however the choice and quality of food and drinks available were the best I've see in any hotel at home or abroad. 10/10 for service too. The staff were attentive, helpful and friendly without being in your face. It all added to the relaxation. Our room, a twin, was at the side on the 9th floor. There was a little noise from the road but nothing to complain about. The twin beds were pushed together as a double. A little dissapointing as we had requested a twin specifically. Tecnically it was a twin but I'd have liked between the two singles. Huge bathrooms great shower. I'd have liked a go on the golf carts to explore the grounds and just for fun as we are not interested in golf. At 30euros a full day to hire it was a bit much. Especially as we would only have wanted half a day. That wasn't an option with one day hire minimum. We took a taxi to the Teide National Park. The advantage was we could pull our where we wanted to get great photos and a stop off at a supermarket to stock up some room snacks and drinks. 25Euro to go up the mountain on scary cable car. Worth it for the veiw. Going up live volcano was also on our bucket list. Note you can climb to the summit but will need a permit before you go up and will need good walking/climbing gear. Altitude makes your chest a bit tight too but not a problem if you are fit. Spectacular views!!!
It is expensive to eat and drink within the complex. Car hire would have been cheaper than taxi but to be chauffeured was more relaxing and we were on a chill out trip. Not much change from 2K all in but worth every penny. We arrived home bronzed, toned, and relaxed. Would go again in a second.
