Just back from a great week in this fabulous hotel. Weather always helps.
Arrived on a Saturday afternoon which seems to be one of the busier changeover times and were welcomed by staff with juice, a glass of bubbly or water....lovely start.
Adjoining rooms were a bonus for our family and were spacious and clean. During our stay there were a couple of minor problems with the rooms but staff were quick to remedy this as soon as they were notified.
The pools were always clean with plenty of beds available.
We booked bed and breakfast. Breakfast had everything you could possibly want and the staff work hard for their wages.
Reception staff also very helpful throughout our stay.
Entertainment was not always to my taste however the variety should cater for all at some point.
Overall a most enjoyable stay at a beautiful hotel

Travelled to this hotel 06/05/2013 from Manchester with Jet2Holidays on an all inclusive basis

On arrival we were given glass of sparkling wine whilst checking in. When we reached the room allocated we were disappointed with it and went back to reception and explained our problem and within 15 minutes we had been allocated another room and our luggage was transferred.

The buffet restaurant was very good and it was nice touch to find various English cheeses on the buffet. The bar near the swimming pool was a good meeting point for guests whether British or other nationalities especially after 4.00 pm.

The al la carte restaurant was in our opinion exceptional and well worth the small supplement that was charged.

Entertainment most evenings was good with a wide variety of acts.

As a recommendation we will be travelling again to this Hotel 07/05/2014 and hope we enjoy the holiday as we did this one

We visited the Costa Adeje Gran Hotel for a week at October half term and had a great time. Really nice hotel and in general friendly staff. I probably would concur with many of the reviews that say that it's not a real 5 Star hotel but it is very good, the food was good, the public spaces clean and pleasant and our room overlooking the pool and sea was large and nicely done out.

A few little niggles but wouldn't put me off going again These were; at meal times the main restaurant tended to the really busy and it was difficult to find a table, I didn't like the fact that the main lobby bar faced immediately onto the main road, I didn't understand why the main pool bar didn't stay open longer in the evening, it shut at 6:30pm which considering it's glorious position was a shame, some of thexternal paint work needs a lick of paint and the second time we used the a la carte restaurant the service was a bit of a shambles with the wine taking forever to turn up.

Back to the positives the AI drinks options were fine, the pools were great and we could always find somewhere to sit. The El Duque beach near by is great, yet it's a little climb back up the hill but so what!

Would we go back, yes!

Loved the hotel.....if I had to find anything to have a little moan about and it is only a little moan! It would be the snack bar by the pool. As an all inclusive guest you were made to feel slightly second class and the food choice there was very uninspiring ! The hotels there also seem to have a different idea of star rating ..... This one I would give a 4 star ( a very nice hotel all the same).

We spent 10 days here and had a fabulous time at this hotel on an All Inclusive holiday. Once you find your way around it's a fab place. The kids club is tucked away in a corner but my daughter really enjoyed going. There is so much choice of food and it's all delicious. I have to say though, I wasn't impressed that they charged us for a lot of the kids stuff, such as "slush" drinks around the pool. If you're on an All Inclusive and going out for the day they will prepare a picnic for you. The rooms are spacious and cleaned every day. The only fault with this hotel is the air con, even on full it doesn't make a difference!!

had a fantastic October half term holiday here. Kept checking the reviews before we went and on the whole they were really good, a few raised some concerns. I can honestly say we had a fantastic holiday, upon arrival which was almost 9pm at night the receptionist told us to have something to eat before the restaurant closed and she would take care of our bags. This we did and when we returned to reception we were taken to our room, all very painless 9 hours after leaving home. Yes the entrance is beautiful and very elegant and I have to say our room was lovely on the second floor overlooking the pools/sea. Very spacious as previous reviews have mentioned. The hotel is spotless and our room was cleaned daily providing new towels and changing bed linen if you left the card requesting this. The food was great, we went all inclusive with our 16 year son and we found something each of us enjoyed whenever we went into the restaurant - plenty of lovely salad and fruit every day. The pools were spotless as well and yes, if you try and reserve your sunbed before 10am then you will find your towels/belongings have been removed, and quite rightly so, nothing worse on previous holidays to come to the pool and find no one there but plenty of towels on loungers!! The staff were all lovely, from the waiters at meal times to the bar staff in the evening, we were always looked after, and if we did have to wait then it was no big deal, we certainly didn't wait long. So my honest review is that it is a lovely hotel and I can find nothing to say to fault it. We have come home to a cold England feeling relaxed and recharged and all being well we shall return again next year. Thank you Costa Adeje Gran Hotel for a wonderful holiday

Went Sept/Oct 2013, pre booked taxi transfer from airport to hotel, it took 20 mins.
On arrival smooth check in, no wait, given a drink and our cases where taken to our room and waiting for us when we went up. The room was spacious with a settee and a chair in the bedroom, flat screen tv with most of our main English channels, bed comfy fridge and safe in room, bathroom twin sinks, separate toilet, shower over bath and hairdryer, the towels where changed twice a day.
Pool area, two large pools, both quite cool, plenty of beds available at all times, never had a problem getting two together, plenty of umbrellas, but there was a problem with them blowing over and away in a slight breeze, they where not safe and this needs to be sorted before someone is injured. There is also a rooftop pool with great view, but you have to be up there early as there are not so many beds. You have a voucher for sun towels you redeem by the pool and you can change them as often as you like.
Dining room, this is where the hotel falls down, and why I don't rate if five star, we where never met and seated, you had to wonder about to find a vacant table, along with whoever arrived to dine the same time as you, resulting in quite a few people wandering about the dining room at the same time, and this was constant as you where dining, we mostly had to sit at a table where some one had just finished, and wait for the waiter to clear and reset the table, this is not the fault of the waiting staff, as they all work very hard, there are just not enough of them. Although there was always a choice at the grill area, where they cooked your food as you waited, and a stir fry section that did the same, once you had your meat the choice of food to go with it was quite limited, the dining room was always hot, I think the air con was faulty, limited choice on sweets, house wine red, white and rose, all vile, as all inclusive you had a discount on the wine you had to pay for, I would advise this option.
Entertainment, good on the whole, but there where a few poor nights, some seats have a restricted view, and waiter service is slow, you can sit outside but these tables where always at a premium, be early or prepared to wait for one, they should put more tables outside.
The layout of the hotel is confusing, with the pool on the second floor, one floor op from the reception area there are more bars, some with a view of the entertainment, the book exchange area is in one of these.
Out and about, as you leave the hotel, go straight down the hill to the new shopping complex, behind that there are steps down to the beach path that will eventually take you into the resorts main beach area. The quicker route is turn left out of the hotel turn right at the first island and follow your nose, also feels safer when dark. If you want sports there is a bar next to the hotel on the left, all English prem games on, the Chinese restraint next door is o k. There is a large market opposite the hotel, just to the left twice a week, Sundays and Thursdays I think.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel, we had a great time there but the dining room experience lets it down, I would say four star plus, not five star.
On checking out, when asked if we had any problems, I did mention the dining room problems, and the staff behind reception where shocked we where never met and seated, I also mentioned the problem with the umbrellas and the are aware of this problem and told me they are testing replacements.
