Villa Las Dunas
Ranked #1 of 1 El Medano B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We stayed at this villa for 2 weeks in January 2013 on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews. Jill & Nigel were the warm kind hosts we were expecting. The room was well equipped, but not spacious and needing a little TLC. They are booked almost year round so it is not surprising that repairs and redecoration are hard to fit in. We loved the ambience of the breakfast terrace which was like the United Nations during our 2 week stay.
Like the previous reviewer we would have appreciated a warm pool which could easily be achieved with the Tenerifan sunshine and solar panels.
Our balcony (room 8a) was unusable when the wind was strong and would benefit from an awning like the one on the breakfast terrace.
Overall we loved the place and enjoyed the island. First class hosts!

Room Tip: Room 7a was the other sea facing room and the balcony had a little more shelter

We stayed 11 nights in this Bed & Breakfast at the South coast of Tenerife. For winter sun in Januari within a reasonable flight distance from Belgium we had the possibility between Egypt and the Canarien Islands. The B&B from Nigel and Jill was the right one. This English couple are realy great Hosts. Four ensuite Guestrooms, breakfast at the terras with oceanview and a 24°C sunshine and this every day again, is like heaven on earth. Nigel and Jill are so helpful with information about restaurants and what to se and to do, your days are always full booked.
There is a English breakfast or cold breakfast possible. Always juce and fruit.
We are not realy beach visitors. Walking and visiting Unesco sites and not to mis the Vulcano Teide. D'ont forget to book your visit to the top online.
Heating the pool can bring a benefit, a dive into the pool without heating is not realy a nice experience. Cleanup the rooms every 3 or 4 days aswel.
We only can recommand this adres.

Room Tip: The two rooms with ocean view have balcony.

My boyfriend and I just stayed one night at Villa Las Dunas before spending a week on a sailboat. Jill and Nigel were helpful with restaurant recommendations, advising us of how to get to the marina for our sailing trip and they were just generally great hosts...available for any questions.

The property is as described and was perfect for us, we were very tired for a 30 hour plane flight into Madrid a couple of days prior so we mostly rested there. It was an easy walk into town and we went into once for dinner and then the second time for lunch and a SUP (stand-up paddle board rental!)

All in all, I would highly recommend Villa Las Dunas...its exactly as described, the hosts are very helpful and the welcome basket in the room with wine, tea and biscuits is great for a weary traveler! If you are looking for something relaxing, calming and away from the crowds then definitely consider booking with Jill & Nigel!

I suggest villas las dunas for a short weekly holidays in Tenerife: you can rest in the silence of the Teide mountain and hear the wind and the sea before sleeping, not so far from the beach and the village and the high way to Santa Cruz is only five minutes by car, people are very kind and you can enjoy your breakfast every morning as in your house, Jill & Nigel are the soul of B & B, they can help you to find the best way to visit all kind of best places in Tenerife.
We stay in a room with mountain view and Romeo and Jiuliet balcon, but we have evrything necessary for a coffe or cup of tea or glass of cool white wine.
After seven days we are very happy, best price and good comfort with all type of services we need and large freedom to visit the island: thank you Jill & Nigel for your sincere smile.

We had a very relaxing week here just before Easter after seeing reviews on tripadvisor. Very quiet and safe location. A walk of around 15-20mins into the town of El Medano but that meant we could work off the local cuisine (which was excellent).

We stayed in a sea-view room. It was clean and well appointed - it was particularly nice to have a fridge, and the complimentary wine/milk/biscuits went down well!

Breakfasts were a highlight - full english cooked to order if you wanted it and all-you-can-drink coffee, as well as cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit, etc.

Jill and Nigel were great hosts, always quick to come up with suggestions for places to go and things to see. They also helped us organise some scuba diving locally, which was fantastic.

We had a car for the week, which we'd recommend to see the best of Tenerife, but if you just wanted beach, pool, and some great restaurants, then El Medano would be perfectly adequate.

This is great value for the price and a world away from the busy hotel resort places.

Before deciding on where to stay on our trip to Tenerife we came over this B&B in El Medano and based on the excellent reviews decided to book. That was at decision we most certainly did not regret!
From the time of booking to the day we (sadly) had to go home our experience with Jill and Nigel were superb! We stayed in a bedroom with a terrance facing the ocean. The room was clean and had a big bathroom. It was fantastic to wake up to sound of the waves breaking onto the beach. You are also greeted with a complementary bottle of wine, water and milk for the tea and coffee you can make with the kettle in the room.
Breakfast was served on the terrace. You have a selection of cereal, fruit, pastry and so on. Last but not least, we had a full English breakfast made to order with a selection of eggs, bacon, beens, tomatoes and sausage. Just lovely!
The Villa is a 15-20 min walk into El Medano. This Is a cosy little town, free from the mass tourism of Playa De Las Americas and Los Cristianos. There are many good restaurants with quality food. No need to go any where else actually.
Because of the location El Medano can be windy at times and is perfect if one wants to windsurf/kite. The wind did not bother us much. Tenerife is a beautiful Island so a car is recommended. As other people have noted, the flight plan of the airport passes over the house, but this was not bothersome.
Before I conclude this review I just have to say some words about Jill and Nigel. They are by far best host we have ever come across. They accommodate you in any way they can and are so nice!
When you read this and the other reviews here you may think that it is to good to be true. But this actually is that good! Book with confidence!
We will return!
