We have just returned from our 2nd visit to the Costa Adeje Gran after a superb visit the year previously. We stayed half board the year before nothing at all wrong with the food but we like to make our evening eating out which is why we opted to stay on a bed no breakfast basis this time Around. The breakfast always had plenty of variety, from fresh omelettes to smoothies and the usual cooked bacon and sausage etc.
The location of the hotel for us was ideal, we are not a fan of the playa de las Americas area and tis is a completely different location, particularly if you turn right from the hotel down to the del duque shopping centres and beach, the bars are also Much more impressive in that direction. The beach is about a 20 minute walk downhill. We never used the beach, but I do not think it would be the ideal location if you had mobility problems as the way back is quite hilly.
The hotel is clean is clean and spotless, the rooms are very spacious, and both times we had a mountain view which wAs fine for us. Of course the seA view rooms are nice but I don't see he value for money of paying a supplement for the amount of time we use our room. The maid s came in sometimes twice a day. I have to admit the year previously the hotel looked a little more impressive, a lot of the decor is looking tired and there were several leaks in the ceiling of the reception from the swimming pool above.
We only used the rooftop pool both times, just simply because the other pool looked crowded and didn't get as much sun. The rooftop pool was also quieter, and to be honest his was one of the main reasons which made us return to the hotel. We also used the gym, which was basic but suited our needs. We used the spa also which is quite small but the treatments were nice and again was quiet. The hotel operates a policy where you can't reserve the sun beds, plenty of beds there is no reason to have to do this but people still do. It's nice to see the hotel stick by the rules and they do remove the towels, quite amusing to watch people causing a scene when it happens to them.
Only experienced the entertainment a couple of times, the bar was always busy but we prefer to have a walk and experience the local bars, I assume if you we're an all inclusive guest or travelled with children this would be quite enjoyable.
There is free wi if in the rooms and reception which we made use off.
The rooms do have a fridge and we did tend to go to the supermarket and fill this with our own drinks. The supermarket is pretty much next door along with a couple more bars. There is a sports bar and a Chinese next door both which we could highly recommend.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to both couples and families, the area bars and restaurants are very laid back within the vicinity so if you do want nightlife this is probably not the hotel for you.
The hotel doesn't offer any loyalty scene for returning guests , which would have been nice. They didn't even recognise the fact we had stayed before. I don't know if we would visit this hotel again, just because I don't think we would visit tenerife again for a few years but wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Most of the people we spoke to had the hotel recommended to them.
