“Fantastic,Great, Marvelous, when can I go again?”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Royal Tenerife Country Club is a place close to my heart. My children came here every year when they were little (they are now 23&24 respectively) and they still come with their Mum and Dad from time to time. This is how all good resorts should be, well run, spotlessly clean and comfortable on every level. The only disappointment was with the pool bar. It has been run by the same family for many years and unfortunately, they have become very complacent and serving their customers was a chore, judging by the look on their faces and the unfriendly service. This was in stark contrast to the Café Med which couldn't have been friendlier. However, the position of this café is not the best...please swap them over!

Room Tip: All the apartments on the bottom have amazing patios and outdoor BBQ's.

Stayed here a week in a friend's timeshare, to play golf at the local courses. The complex is very near the airport. Two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, small kitchen, quirky layout, very nice patio. More than adequate for our needs. Nice pool with plenty of loungers. Fairly basic but reasonable poolside restaurant. On site shop is expensive but handy if you run out of anything. My return flight left late, but after checkout I was able to use the pool and restaurant for the day and get a shower and change in the communal facilities, no hassle. Had a relaxing time there and would go again.

Our first experience of the RTCC and a pleasant one at that. We used a friends timeshare villa not really knowing what to expect. We weren't however disappointed. We had a large 2 bedroom 2 bathroom property towards the bottom of the complex with views down to Los Abrigos and the sea. Excellently furnished and spotless. Large main bathroom with huge walk in shower. Good sized lounge/diner and adequate very well equipped kitchen. We were amazed by the size of the terrace which must measure some 70 sq m. You could invite 50 people to a party on it with a BBQ big enough to cook for all of them!

We were told that the place was full however it never seemed busy at all in fact just the opposite. Everywhere is generally well maintained with ongoing maintenance which was never intrusive. You do get aircraft overhead as its on the approach to the runway ( normally when Easterly ish winds however if the winds had have been Westerly they would be taking off over you) which is probably less than 2 miles away but frankly we found it more of a novelty that a nuisance!

There are two bars/eating places on site. The pool bar where they seem ambivalent whether you spend money there or not or Café Med where the food and service is really good. We don't understand the previous reviewers who had these the other way round. Anyway we never ate at the pool bar simply as didn't like their attitude so cant really comment on the food there. Separate review done on Café Med. Both these places are independently run. There is also a small shop that is extremely expensive so got essentials at the excellent supermarket at San Blas about 20 mins walk away. Also very handy car hire office on site run by lady who is extremely helpful. If you hire she will sort your car parking out for you and also and do a pick up drop off service to and from the airport for a 7 day hire......handy!

The place is a little out of the way but we liked that. The aforementioned San Blas is easily walkable and has loads of shops/bars/restaurants etc. Nothing very sophisticated down there with lots of Irish bars and curry houses but good choice. Surprised if they all make a living as supply outstrips demand significantly. About the only thing remotely Spanish/Canarian we could find there was the Tapas restaurant just behind the square (Pato de Oro I think its called) .where we enjoyed the food. We also quite liked the Taboo bar which had a bit of atmosphere and apparently regularly does a 4am stint!!

If you want something a bit more indigenous go to Los Abrigos. Its a nice walk in the daytime across a shingle beach and some slightly precarious steps (45 mins from RTCC) . If you prefer a taxi is only about 6 euros. This is a small fishing harbour with a dozen or so mainly fish/seafood restaurants clustered around the harbour and is aesthetically extremely pleasant. We ate at La Scarpetta,(more Italian than fishy) La Langostera, and Perla del Mare...all good and reports up soon.

Overall really enjoyed the RTCC. It has a lovely calm ambience as does the pool complex (use the heated one out of the summer!) Lots of places to eat and drink easily accessible (despite what some reviewers say about being out of the way...there are probably 30 bars and restaurants within a mile of the place!!). Accommodation is generally of a high standard and so are the staff. No hesitation in recommending...and we are quite fussy !

We had a spacious apartment which was well equipped. Room safe cost 10euros a week.
Shop just adequate but prices high. Pool bar food is basic.
Most English TV channels available. Ipod docks in lounge.
They never quite resolved smell from drains. Jacuzzi bath interesting but outlet plug only reached by climbing in bath before filling. No extractor unit in bathroom or shower.
Room serviced every other day but this is not stated in resort book.
Car park is too small. We could not get a place even at 15euros a week. I presume you must have to book in advance.
We had to walk at least 5mins from nearest available car park.
The resort is away from the rest of Golf del Sur and takes 20-25 mins to walk. Taxis are cheap & there is a bus service with regular but infrequent times.
All restaurants found on Tripadvisor are 2-3km away.

Room Tip: Some apartments are quite a long way from reception.

We have been regular guests at the RTCC and have been most pleased with all aspects of the resort. The accommodation is of course varied, inevitable during a programme of upgrading, but it is of a generally high standard. Furnishings are consistently of a good quality and the staff are exceptional - nothing is ever too much trouble for them. I don't understand the criticism of the pool bar. The food is exceptional and very good value for money. It is probably not so good for guests who want instant service and burgers and chips - this is after all Tenerife - so make the most of it, enjoy exceptional cuisine at an affordable price. The staff are actually very pleasant when you make the effort and extend a reasonable level of politeness. I have experienced two disappointing meals at the Cafe Med [inappropriately named given the outlook of the resorts car park!!] - which seems to be popular with some guests.

We have had a number of holidays at this resort where the staff are lovely. My big problem is with the wifi or lack thereof. It is completely overpriced and rather slow. We had to go and sit in a local pub in order to get good, fast, reliable wifi. I need constant access to the internet as I run my own business. In 2013, poor and expensive wifi is completely unacceptable and the RTCC need to address this problem and adjust the cost.

We are sorry to read that your visits to the Royal Tenerife Country Club have been marred by your dissatisfaction regarding the resort’s Wi-Fi provision. Unlike in a pub where internet use is short-term and sporadic, a large resort whose guests require 24/7 internet access necessitates a larger bandwidth, and this unfortunately comes at a cost. In order to provide free Wi-Fi to our guests, this cost would have to be incorporated into the resort’s operating budget by increasing maintenance fees and rental costs accordingly, which would also charge those guests who didn’t use the internet. We are in discussion with the resort’s Homeowners’ Association to see if this is a service that can be provided in the future, however.

We really hope that this issue hasn’t dissuaded you from returning to the Royal Tenerife Country Club – we’d love to see you again!

Very nice quiet location with excellent views. Has a nice pool bar with limited but nice food. Very friendly staff. Currently some redevelopment of some apartments and the spa / gym which was disappointing with noise and lack of the facility. Club Med at the front looks out on the car park and is rather disappointing lacking any ambiance. WiFi available but only for a single device. The plumbing was sometimes aromatic!

Room Tip: Need a car and rooms over looking the golf course are best quiet and views
