“A mix of 4 and 5 star elements”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Wow, we started with a free upgrade to a Villa and my wife's e-mail about our anniversary had been noted and we were left champagne and chocolates in our room, 5* all the way!
The design theme leant a tranquil ambience to the main building and the pools while cold at this time of year are bordered by gorgeous tropical planting, coupled with lovely pool side beds where notices restricting reserving were duly ignored but all the same towels and deck chairs were freely available, again 5*. The let down was the overall food and drinks service both pool side, breakfast and evening buffet which was inconsistent and lacking 4 or 5 star polish. In comparison to others the evening Buffet was overpriced and under quality, service and ambience included it was strictly average, can't bare the scraping chairs!
Room service seemed to happen whenever, at 10 one day and 2 another and twice I had to request that the coffee and 'plastic spoons' were replenished. Outside of London I have yet to find a5* that has Nespresso machines in rooms or at the very least, decent coffee and dare I say fresh milk.
We weren't told about any offers in the spa and were not encouraged to sample anything, everything had a charge even the sauna and steam rooms which have been free of charge in many lesser hotels I've stayed in the past. It's a shame because it appeared empty most of the time, what a waste it looked awesome, but it's Expensive!
Having stayed in 5* in Sharm el sheik last year and cancelled it this year due to the trouble in Egypt I compared the two destinations all the time. Costa al Deja wins hands down all be the weather slightly temperamental, I've yet to make up my mind about hotels, The El duque might be next years option, although the loveliness of this might overcome my niggles.

Room Tip: Villas are awesome

We have just returned from our first holiday in Tenerife and couldn't have picked a better hotel. The staff were very friendly and attentive. On arrival we were given a glass of champagne and Juan the very helpful porter took our luggage to our room. The room was spacious and had a stunning view of the bay from the balcony, it was very clean and the maids looked after us very well during our stay. The was food was very varied, so didn't get bored with eating buffet food, I especially liked the fish that was cooked to order. The waiters were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them, also the restaurant manager Adrien was always very friendly to the guests. On our last day Danielle very kindly provided us with a curtesy room which having an evening flight enabled us to freshen up before going to the airport. We would definitely return to this hotel again. The only down side is the hills but again you don't get the noise from other hotels and it was ok walking down or getting the curtesy bus. A taxi back up the hill was very reasonable.

Room Tip: Book a room with a sea view on a higher floor

Much has already been written about this excellent hotel which benefits from being much smaller than many in the area. It is located on a rocky outcrop which is about 70 metres above sea level, so it's a quite steep walk down a ramp type road to the sea front and a fairly strenuous walk back to the hotel. The hotel do have a mini bus service which can be used to get back in the afternoons or taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced.
It is worth paying for a superior room( or junior suite) since these rooms have the best sea views especially good for enjoying the late afternoon sun and sunsets. They also have the advantage of not being alongside the busy ramp roadway which runs on the south side of the hotel. Room numbers 102-118 and similar numbers on the second and third floors are especially well positioned.
The food in the breakfast and dinner buffets was of a good standard with plenty of choice. Being a small hotel there was always plenty of space and no undue jostling at the service counters( a complaint we heard of the very large hotels in the area)
The a la carte restaurant "El Canario Gourmet" was fine dining quality, excellent service and well worth the 15€ supplement per person. The Jaime tapas service in the pool bar in the evenings lacked ambience and was a fine dining/ tapas type fusion which because of the lack of ambience didn't quite hit the spot for us.
Throughout the hotel, drink and wine prices were about the same as a UK hotel, although there was a good choice of quaffable wine for about 20€ a bottle. The superior rooms don't have coffee and tea making facilities so take your own because 5.50€ for 2 coffees or teas or small bottles of water adds up over a week.
We found using taxis to play the local golf courses worked well. Three of the four courses: Adeja, Golf la Americas, and Golf da Sur were all in good condition, good clubhouses. Amarilla was in poor condition, has a snack bar level of club house and the practice ground is scruffy. All the courses were fully booked so tee times need to be booked 3-4 months ahead. All the clubs had starters who kept things running to time and although busy, and we did have to wait occasionally on tees, the rounds were not unduly slow.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and loved this well designed, clean hotel.

Room Tip: As above, avoid rooms on the first floor numbered up to 18 because they have a restricted view or ar...

We stayed over Christmas and had a lovely and very relaxing stay. We were upgraded and had the gorgeous villas - large, with 4 poster beds, a balcony and terrace with a jacuzzi - great watching for watching the sunset with a glass of wine.
Once again, staff were attentive, helpful and very friendly, they remembered us from last year, which was really nice. Always found a bed by the pool and it never felt crowded, just a shame that only 1 pool had warmish water. Food consistently tasty, normally get bored after a few days of buffet food, but there was something different everyday and huge selection of flavours and very fresh. Being up on a hill means you don't get the noise from the other hotels and beach, which meant you could truly get away from it all.

Room Tip: Had rooms 714, 717 and 720- all had terraces and a jacuzzi and 714 had an upstairs terrace as well a...

On arriving at the hotel you are greeted by staff who take your cases from the vehicle and give you champagne or juice as you are checking in. From there on you are treated like vip. We have been there four times and had different rooms and each room has been 5*. The hotel has a light fragrance smell where ever you are in side. The staff are so nice to you and make you fill relaxed. You cant do a thing without them asking can i help you. The pool area has lots of sun beds and 4 poster beds if you really want to rest. We are back there in February 14 cant wait.

Room Tip: Rooms 307 to 309 middle of the hotel great views of pools and sea. The best room is 205 . Have viewe...

This is a good hotel with nice facilities but not recommend for those who don't like hills.

We found the staff were very friendly and showed genuine care for making your stay a welcome one. The hotel pool area and gardens are beautiful built into a hill side. There are five or maybe six pools, all with comfortable sun reds and nice soft towels. We could not fault the pool areas.

Breakfast choice was great, buffet stye with eggs of your choice. We did not dine in the evening. Lunch time snacks we your usual menu but ok.

On checkin we were given a villa on the West side of the hotel. This was greater lovely four poster bed, walking wardrobe, separate bathroom, hot tub on the balcony. Only down side we got no sun on the balcony so we went to the pool every day. Rooms come complete with tea and coffee facilities, wifi (one device each), TV package, safe and mini bar.

Its a 15 to 20 minute walk to the nearest restaurants and cafes and around 12Euros to the likes of Las Americas.

We would recommend this hotel and it is 5 star.

Room Tip: Book a sunny balcony, sea view especially in winter.

The hotel has a nice feel about it, with two floors of lounge areas and 2 main adult pools to choose from;1 for toddlers. When we were there it was before the pre-xmas rush so there were plenty of poolside beds (yes Bali beds) to use. The lower ground pool in December was quite cold but there is a heated (24-26 degrees) pool available.

The gym and (paid) spa facilities are excellent with lots of jet powered features in the pool. There is also an inner caved "sanctum" room (in the paid spa areas) with loungers and power showers which secludes one from all the noise from outside (apart from when kids are in the outside spa pool). Not many people used the spa when I was there perhaps due to the season or pricing.

The main facet of this hotel are the well clock-worked, hard working and friendly waiting and bar staff who with grace and ease make dining and poolside service excellent. There is an adequate selection of food (perhaps less so for vegetarians) at dinner and breakfast.

The only niggles perhaps, is that technology wise, this place could do with some updating. While there is free WiFi available the signal and speed is horrendous in most places should you with to listen to on-line radio/ read newspapers etc. Also on many occasions the room key cards failed with the explanation of "your mobile probably caused it". Additional sometimes the karaoke night entertainment was a bit so so and made you want to retire early.

The beach, promenade and shops are a 5 mins taxi or 15 minutes walk. You're not secluded in this hotel and there are day trips out the peak hills also on offer.

Overall a good hotel for the grown up family, if you want to leave all your tech at home or if you want to go on day trips out.

Room Tip: Ask for floor 2 or 3, good views form there.
