I have just returned from 7 nights at El Duque Aparthotel with my husband and 2 children and can only express praise for this Hotel. I am very very surprised at some other reviews stating that this hotel is not worthy of 3 stars! I'm not sure what others expectations are but mine were met and well beyond. Cleanliness is obviously the aim here. It is immaculately kept. Maid service daily, floors and balcony/terrace mopped daily, bathroom cleaned, sides wiped, beds maid and the grounds are attended to throughout the day. U will not see a piece of litter etc in sight! Hotel/waiter staff always friendly, smily, helpful and chatty.
Our room was in F block overlooking the main pool and views out to sea - beautiful views, modern decor, clean & comfortable. Large balcony housing a patio table, 2 chairs, 2 sun beds & a parasol.
Pool area so clean and in our experience did not struggle for sun beds. They are locked away until the pool opens at 10am. We spent some time at the beach am and managed to get beds in the afternoon, maybe busier high season but in September this wasn't a problem.
Food is quite repetitive having said that, traveling with 3 fussy eaters everyone ate plenty every meal time. Restaurant is modern and clean, tables cleared instantly etc.
Beach is a 10-15 min walk (Playa El Duque) downhill, up back. Prestige plaza del duque shopping mall is down there too. Quiet nightlife, very low key, so if you're looking for lively this isn't the place. Hotel entertainment wasn't brilliant, parrot show one night but did really enjoy singer Pablo Santiago!
The only small criticism I would have is that this isn't "All Inclusive as I know it" breakfast is 7-10 lunch 1-3 dinner 6.30-9.30 there is a pool bar with drinks available all day but snacks are at extra cost eg burgers, nuggets hot dogs for kids and had to be purchased from reception then ticket taken to pool bar which is a palaver and annoying to pay extra. When I've travelled all inclusive before everything is included. Also bar staff give drinks where as before, they've been available for self service at pumps (this is the case in the restaurant at meal times tho, u can help yourself) but I should Imagine in high season that not being able to help yourself causes queues at pool bar. Not an issue in sept tho. We were never hungry it just meant at lunch time u would need to get out pool and allow time to dry off because u had to go to restaurant to eat rather than just being able to sit at pool bar during day and eat as we've done on other all inclusive holidays.
Overall, I'd summarise this hotel as clean, tidy, modern and friendly, would recommend to families and is in a good location. I'd definitely return.
