About Jardines de Nivaria - Adrian Hoteles
The Hotel Jardines de Nivaria is a 5* luxury resort located in the Costa Adeje area of Tenerife. Situated right on the waterfront overlooking the Playa de Fanabe beach - a true favourite of the rich and famous - this high end complex is also just a stones throw from the pretty Anthelia Park, the promenade restaurants and bars at the end of Calle Paris. Additionally, it's close to Plaza del Duque shopping centre, which is a great place for stocking up on essentials, or picking up souvenirs for friends and family back home. The complex itself is visually stunning, boasting lush green gardens, crystal clear pools, and views that stretch right across to La Gomera. Close to both of Tenerife’s main airports, getting here is quick, easy, and inexpensive.
The hotel has enjoyed many successes which have helped solidify its place as one of the best hotels in Tenerife. Ranging from the Thomas Cook Award for Excellence and the 2013 Zoover Award, to TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice and Holiday Check Top Hotel awards, the global recognition the Hotel Jardines de Nivaria has received demonstrates just how luxurious and accommodating this resort really is. The hotel is primarily geared towards couples, although families are welcomed.
Room Information and Room Facilities
The Hotel Jardines de Nivaria boasts 271 opulent rooms, each with private balcony or terrace commanding spectacular views of the mountains, pools, or ocean. Standard double rooms come complete with flat screen plasma TVs, fully equipped bathrooms, and comfortably sleep up to two guests so they are the perfect option for couples.
For larger families and groups, the Junior and Royal suites provide everything you need. Similar in style and design to the standard double rooms, these suites are effectively two rooms joined together, allowing for a much more spacious atmosphere. Of course, there are a few little extras too, including complimentary fruit baskets, a massage shower, and DVD player, which is handy for kids. Those looking for a true luxury room in Tenerife should consider the Presidential Suite. Boasting a private Jacuzzi out on the terrace, this is the perfect place for enjoying the warm Tenerife sun in the privacy of your own palatial accommodation.
Facilities, Entertainment, Activities
Partnered with Nivaria Trekking, the Hotel Jardines de Nivaria offers entertainment and activities both on and off the property. Onsite, the fully equipped gymnasium is considered to be a highlight, with aerobics classes, bicycles, and artificial tennis greens. For unwinding, the pools and saunas help to heal the muscles, while the picturesque gardens provide some much needed downtime.
Guests can also make use of the hotel’s partnership with Nivaria Trekking to get out and about and discover the real Tenerife, away from the luxury beachfront resorts. Tenerife is volcanic in nature, meaning the landscape is truly diverse, with mountains, rivers, and walking trails all begging to be explored. Whether you hike the Barranco de Masca or stick to the easier Santiago del Teide trail, there is something for everyone.
Although families are welcomed at the hotel, there are very few childrens’ facilities when compared to other nearby complexes. The resort does, however, offer an outdoor playground and a games room to keep the younger guests entertained.
Food and Drink Options
There are three restaurants and four bars located onsite at the Hotel Jardines de Nivaria in Costa Adeje, each offering something different. La Cupula is considered to be the hotel’s signature restaurant. Serving up a blend of French and Canarian cuisine in a sophisticated setting, the restaurant has won many awards and received much recognition for its commitment to local produce. La Cascada is a poolside restaurant unlike any other. With tables nestled between looming palms, overlooking waterfalls, and dimly lit by the glowing pool lights, this is the ultimate romantic venue for a special meal. The setting is just perfect for couples. For those wanting a more laid back dining experience, Solandra offers food buffet style, serving up a different mouthwatering cuisine each and every night of the week.
The Lobby Bar and Bar la Cascada are relaxing places to unwind with a coffee, a cocktail, or some nibbles. However, for a more luxurious experience, Bar Tiffany is the place to be. Situated under a gigantic Tiffany lamp, and with live piano music on a regular basis, there is an extensive cocktail menu here, with drinks made by only the best cocktail waiters on the island. If you’re visiting during the winter months, the warm and cozy Armstrong Ballroom is a popular venue, allowing guests to sip drinks whilst watching some classic resort entertainment.

"Just returned from a week here, paid to upgrade to a junior suite with sea view, could just about see the sea but we were facing the promenade so couldnt sit out as so many people walking past. Breakfast is good plenty of very good fresh fruit and if you plan it right you can sit out on the large balcony overlooking the pool/gardens. Bit of a shock in the bar toilets cockroaches two nights on the run which the staff laughed off, common in Tenerife apparently! Overall Nice hotel, nice rooms, lovely pool, quite glam clientel very mixed not many english, needs a bit of tlc here & there, its not LHW standard & we wouldnt rush back. When booking golf go through the public relations as you get discounts on most courses, Las Americas is a fabulous course but very pricey presumably to maintain standards. The location of the hotel is a shock if you havent been before from the sea prom turn left and you are in blackpool with a Mcdonalds on the beach. awful. However if you head the other way either along the prom or out of the main reception and left towards Playa Del Duque there is a fabulous beach, nice shops, the rather inmpressive looking Bahia hotel and some truly wonderful restaurants, try La Torre Del Mirador, rated 4th best in Tenerife, fabulous wine, food and ambience."

Very nice hotel
"We agree with all the previous reviews. This is a very nice hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were spacious and modern (flat screen tv, balcony or terrace).
We were in the Guajara building but had a day room overlooking the pool on our final day and this room seemed a little nicer. We didn't eat in the hotel, but tried all the restaurants along the promenade outside the hotel. We didn't have a single disappointing meal.
Breakfast at the hotel is superb with lots of choice including, eggs any way, bread, salmon, asparagus, prawns, hams, cheese, fruit and just about anything else you can think of. Oh yes, the Cava!
The pool area is delightful with plenty of space and sun loungers. There's a saltwater heated pool and a cold, freshwater one with waterfall. Great fun. We'd definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a restful week in the sun."

Wonderful hotel - again
"We returned here in September after a wonderful week spent at this hotel last January. Again the hotel was superb. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the sea with a huge balcony. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The one downside at this hotel this time was the outdoor entertainment in the evening. Not everyone, us included, wants to listen to music and dancing until nearly midnight. I think this only happens during the warmer evenings because the entertainment was indoors in January. Breakfast is amazing especially the fresh orange juice squeezed before your eyes! The main restaurant is a buffet in the evenings but we don't like buffets so we tried various restaurants in the area. The hotel's 'Playa Navaria' restaurant is very good but our favourite has to be the 'Willow Tree' on the first floor of the Plaza del Duqur shopping centre, only a short walk from the hotel. You're greeted with a glass of cava while you look through the menu. All the food was freshly cooked and delicious. The staff were so friendly and we ended up eating there several times. We can thoroughly recommend it and the hotel and will certainly return there on our next trip to Tenerife."

Lovely hotel - Not nice resort
"The hotel is extremely pleaseant and the staff really are the most friendliest and efficient you'd ever meet!
We stayed in a Junior Suite because we had a cot which was a good size.
We paid Â£400 for a sea view which we didn't get and when we swapped rooms it was only accessable via 3 different lifts because we had a pushchair.
The breakfast was a huge buffet to suit most tastes butm the evening buffets were very dissappointing.
The selection was extremely small, mainly fish and salad and the quality wasn't that great either.
We went half board and decided to eat at the A La Carte restaurant instead where you get a 15euro discount, the food there was excellent.
There is a continual race for sun loungers and if you hadn't reserved one by 8.30 there were none left.
The entertainment was an evening pianist, one evening an opera singer and a magician, rather dissappointing!
All in all a lovely hotel if you go B&B and don;t venture out of the hotel as the resort is Dire..and somewhat remenicent of Blackpool or similar!!!!!!"

Nice but money grabbing.....
"If you want a nice looking hotel, genrally good staff this is for you but....money grabbing and in a truly 'tourist' area.
Whilst we stayed we queried at reception about customs duties. Reception did not know the answer so they rang our rep. Later we go to check out..now understand we paid nearly Â£3,000 to stay here and Â£300 in extras i.e. wine etc. The bill had this phone call on it ... 40p...yes, 40p. We said we made no calls but they proceed to use 2 members of staff to re-ring the number to check it, find out who it was and then say we were charged because we asked them to call the rep!
Also..arranged some flowers for my parents anniversary. Paid about Â£20 and got 4 roses in a vase in the room. Complained and this was rectified but this is not the point.
Billiards 2 euros a game, putting on the 7? hole course, don't forget the 20 euro deposit per club!
Wine supermarket 4 euros, hotel 20 euros. Being 5 star should not mean you have the license to fleece people.
The final thing is the area - on the sea front - good views, but the hotel is surrounded by cafes with people offering you all day english breakfast for 2 euro, telling you the football is on tonight, offering beer for 1 euro. St.Moritz this isn't! Even the taxi driver switched off the meter and demanded more than the fare.
Wouldn't rush back...."

A very pleasant week
"Picked this hotel at the last minute having seen favourable reviews on Trip Advisor, and realising that we (early 40's couple) could get away for a week without the kids. We were looking for a relaxing week in pleasant surroundings and the J de N certainly delivered this.
Excellent service and friendly staff throughout.
Clientele very cosmopolitan - not many British people but plenty of Germans, some Spanish and French and lots of Russians. It is something of a fashion parade (even at breakfast) with lots of linen and designer sunglasses in evidence. This is not a bad thing intself but if I was going again I would pack more smart clothes and less shorts & T-shirts.
Breakfast is as outstanding as other reviewers have said - everything from special diet products through to crepes with chocolate sauce, via omelettes cooked to your personal taste and more types of bread than I knew existed. The sparkling cava (it's not actually champagne) went so well with the freshly squeezed orange juice we just had to give in to temptation on most mornings!
As a result, breakfast turned into a "several courses" event and the service was so prompt that we had our table re-set with a new table cloth on a couple of occasions! ( the trick is to never leave the table unattended and take turns to visit the buffet). Particularly nice to able to sit outside on a terrace overlooking the landscaped pool area and beyond that the sea.
The free towel service/sunbed cover service worked really well. The pools area is fantastic - it is actually like being in a botanical gardens with little plaques identifying all the different trees that you are stting next to. Lots of waterfalls and the constant sound of running water was very relaxing and thankfully not spoilt by any piped-in music. Others have said the pool area was a bit cramped and that is true if you want to be right next to the pool but there are grassy areas and a raised tiled terrace overlooking the sea that were very quiet if you wanted some more of your own space. Plenty of sunbeds even if you only get to the pool after 11am.
We stayed in the cheapest option, bed & breakfast in a standard double room. It was very nicely furnished and absolutely spotless. Fresh towels & sheets every day, bathrobes, slippers, a rose and chocolate left on your bed when it was turned down in the evening. Large terrace with 2 sun beds and satellite TV including Sky News and Sky Sports 1, not just the usual BBC World that we have had elsewhere.
We didn't eat in the hotel as we prefer to seek out other restaurants but the buffet dinner for half board guests looked very good. Playa Nivaria on the promenade was pricey ( compared to the competition) so as a result was always very quiet. The poolside bar was pleasant but quite dressy for lunch (like breakfast) so you need to be wearing a shirt etc - I personally prefer a true "pool bar" where I can get a cold beer dressed in my swim shorts but that is just a personal quibble.
One of the best things about J de N in my view is the location - set in the middle of two very different options.
As you leave the hotel front door turn right for Playa Fanabe with the usual fayre of "fun" pubs and fairly low cost eating options - special mention for the thatched beach bars which stay open in the evening with flame torches creating a lovely atmosphere. Get as far as the In & Out Bar ( part covered and partly beach, hence the name) and there is a fantastic band playing rock covers.
Turn left out of the hotel front door and head for Playa del Duque - only 10 minutes walk - and you are rewarded not only with a fabulous beach ( with white sand imported from the Sahara) but classy beach front cafes by day, and lovely upmarket restauraunts and bars in the evening - try the Toro del Miradore for great al fresco food watching the sunset over Gomera island and Bar Acanto next door for pre or post dinner drinks. There is also very upmarket shopping at Plaza del Duque which is half way ( a whole 5 minutes from the hotel!) if you need to break the journey! ( nice tapas bar on the downstairs level too).
We loved this little part of Tenerife for a week of sun and relaxation and will certainly look to return to the J de N again."

5 Star and Fabulous
"We have just spent a week at the Jardines de Nivaria Hotel in Tenerife with our teenage son and daughter. It was 5 Star and Fabulous! We cannot fault anything. The staff were all friendly, courteous and with a sense of humour. Nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were brilliant, and the breakfast buffet, a feast to behold. Nothing will ever compare!
I used your site before booking our holiday and found the reviews so helpful. Hope you find this one too! Many thanks."

"We stayed in the Jardines de Nivaria for 11 days in March 2006 and really enjoyed the comfort; clean , well equipped rooms and heated pool, plus a good location.Very handy for early morning walks in the glorious sunshine.
There is plenty of space in the hotel to escape the other guests but the pool area is just slightly cramped.
As others have said, the buffet breakfast is excellent. We only ate in the hotel restaurants a couple of times. The Copula is very nouvelle cuisine and the Playa Nivaria was OK. There are plenty of restaurants around but we particularly liked the Willow Tree in the Plaza del Duque centre. An unlikely location but execellent food and service.
We liked this area of Tenerife - very well maintained and peaceful."

Champagne for Breakfast in not enough
"Chammpagne for breakfast is not enough to make this an undisputed five star hotel. There are many elements of the hotel that are worthy of the five star rating such as the building and the grounds, the breakfast buffet which offers champagne to go with the freshly squeezed orange juice and the staff service. However there are as many inconsistencies which call the five star rating into question. The bathroom has twin basins but we had to run the water for several minutes before it came through hot, likewise the overbath shower which was distinctly two star. The bath robes in our bathroom were torn and a dripping tap in the bathroom was not identified by the housekeeping staff. As others have observed the doubble bed is in fact two singles pushed together, although they are generously large single beds. The only TV channels in English were news channels and even though the most basic hotesl in UK and USA offer in room tea and coffee making facilities this practice does not seem to have reached even five star hotels in Spain.
We did enjoy having our own sunbeds on the patio outside our room so we did not investigate the availability of sunbeds around the pool.
The only restaurant that we ate in apart from the breakfast buffet was the Playa de Nivaria restaurant on the promenade, we found the service excellent, which it should have been as the restaurant was never more than half full. We found the menu in the supposed Gourmet Cupola restaurant decidedly uninspiring.
We also appreciated the fact that the no smoking indoors policy was enforced and observed by customers."

Good in parts
"Just returned from a week at the Jardines De Nivaria.
Some aspects of the hotel were good. The breakfast buffet was impressive with an excellent range of foods. In the evening We only ate in the mid range promenade side resteraunt which served straightforward international food and this was good and well priced. The poolside resteraunt was also good although I found the choice a little limited.Service in all parts of the hotel was excellent and extremely attentive. Lastly the hotel has a well equiped gym.
On the negative side the rooms were not that spacious. We had a superior sea view suite with sitting room but both Bedroom and sitting room were "cosy.". The double bed was infact 2 large singles pushed together, not comfortable for a couple.
Both rooms had flat screen Tv's great we thought until finding that the only English language channels were CNN or BBC World..as the weather was not very good during our stay a decent choice of TV would have been appreciated. I do not understand how anyone can think that constant news is entertainment..Many overseas hotels now subscribe to BBC prime which offers a good selection of programmes.
Whilst the pool area was very attractive and we appreciated the heated pool and Jaccuzi the sun beds were quiet crammed together for a 5* hotel. Lastly the hotel resembles a '80's shopping centre with mock doric columns, inside a mismash of mock art deco and art noveau in a hideous clash of styles. It does not really set the tone for a sophisticated atmosphere.
Costa Adeje which is meant to be the upmarket end of the resort is O.K., nice promenade but being hideousy over developed with massive blocks of apartments stretching right up the hillsides overlooking the resort totally ruining the view.
So all in all it was OK but we've had better. I dont to be honest think I would go again. I have visited Tenerife on a number of occasions in 4 and 5 * hotels and have yet to find one that really excels. The coastal parts of the island are very ugly,particulary in the South...everywhere you drive seems to be motorway,huge developments or mile apon mile of poly tunnel...the only reason for going is for abit of sun in the winter and we didnt get much !"

The best hotel we have stayed at in Tene...
"The best hotel we have stayed at in Tenerife.
We were greeted by very friendly staff on our arrival and as our room wasn't ready we were given a complementary meal and drink.
The room was in lovley surroundings and had fresh fruit and wine on our arrival.
Facilities at the hotel were really good and well worth the 5 star rating.
If you like Art Deco, this hotel is perfect. Amazing!

AMAZING THis hotel is well worth the fiv...
THis hotel is well worth the five stars in its title. On arrival we were greeted by staff to take our bags to our rooms, once stating our names to the very helpful reception staff; we were asked to have a complementary drink whilst they checked us in and did all of the necessary documentation. We were then shown to our large rooms, with the most amazing view.
All staff were very helpful, kind and tried their best to please you.
We stayed at the hotel on bed and breakfast basis. But the breakfast could have fed you your daily need of food. It is quite an experience. There was huge variety of juices and drinks including champagne(help your self), bread, fruit, yoghurt, you could even have brusssel sprouts and chips. The main hotel restaurant could be seena s expensive but there is a good range of local retaurants. In particular an italian restaurant called little italy, very good food and staff.
Facillities were good, but not amazing. Lots to keep you busy though!
Overal a very very good hotel, i can not wait to return!"
