Great Xmas Break!!!
"We have just returned from staying 8 days at the hotel. I was concerned when I read some of the recent reviews and nearly changed hotel. However, we were pleasantly surprised and had a wonderful stay. The food catered for all of us and the rooms were comfortable. The staff , particularly at the kids club ( Oscar and Azasarah) were absolutely delightful and work well with the children - thank you . The hotel isn't too far from town or the beach and was great location in general. We took some great walks and generally had a pleasant stay.
We would definitely go back again but a few areas that need improving:
- A designated smoking area which allow everyone to enjoy the fresh area without smoke!! It was difficult to sit outside in the bar/terrace as so many people smoke!! We kept having to move.
- more comfortable pillows are definitely needed
- Cleaners need to sweep under the beds everyday.
- Also membership to club Melia needs to be less complicated.
However, despite this I would definitely recommend this hotel. Thank you to all the staff for a lovely stay.x

fantastic, highly recommended
"This hotel was absolutely brilliant, one of the best i have stayed in. The food was very tasty with a good selection which changed daily. All inclusive is definitely worth the money as you can get as many drinks as you like and it is often known brands, not just the local stuff. Only downfall is the entertainment area in the evening as it was a bit small for the size of the hotel, but had a good range of acts such as a Chinese circus, acrobatics, illusionists etc. Some shows weren't so good but you cant expect every night to be brilliant. Best views i have ever seen from a hotel before as its situated on a hill. A short walk from beach and shops. In my opinion the best area of Tenerife to go to. Playa Los Americanos is also a nice area to go to of the island, but Costa Adeje was my favorite area. Most of the guests are Spanish or Russian with little guests being English so if kids are looking to make friends then it may be harder to do this in this hotel. Although there is lifts i would also say the hotel isn't great for the older generation who find it hard to get around. Saying this, for adults and children the hotel is a lovely place and probably one of the best i have ever stayed in. Was very impressed and it's well worth the money."

Could do so much better!!!
"This Hotel is in no way worthy of a 4 star rating. Our first room was noisy with constant grating of chairs from above + the air conditioning did not work also the fridge dident get very cold & a piece of metal had come off the bath,we were moved the next day.The rooms are adequate nothing wow.All of the lifts were boilng hot.The staff all seemed to be working under immence pressure the ladies that cleaned our rooms were a joy .It was a free for all at meal times see a table & grab it what it is like at the height of the season who knows !We have never had to pay for a safe you do here + pool towels a deposit of $40.Oh & one final complaint WHO in their right minds wants to watch a PARROT ON A BIKE for the cabaret after paying over Â£2,000 for 10 days holiday.

from babs&tony phillips S.Wales stayed 24/4-1/5
"We are both in our 60's but still very active.We were over-awed as soon as we arrived at this fab resort. breathtaking views. Staff treated us like royalty. Food superb, cleanliness and entertainment excellent. Treated with champagne and chocs when they new it was my husband's birthday and our 46th wedding anniversay. Would love to go back for my birthday in Novemeber and hopefully have the same room 208, as all you could hear were the birds in the morning."

Lovely hotel, super efficient staff
"we stayed for a week during October half term 2011, I couldn't fault the service provided - the staff were attentive, polite and helpful everywhere. the food selection was exceptional with a huge variety of meats, fishes, pastas and salads at every meal. The resort is a bit disappointing with nowhere really to walk to no bars or anything much to look at but as we were all inclusive not too much of a problem. Not too much in the way of evening entertainment. rooms were huge, and the views great as you are so high up. Downsides: the pool has very few shallow areas for people who are not confident swimmers and it was freezing, so cold that even my teenagers avoided going in! A great place for a weeks break, but two weeks would be boring unless you went out on lots of trips. Bottom pool is the best (and where the pool bar is) there is a door by the bar that leads out to the pavement so you can walk down the hill.

good hotel, who is the barwomen at the entertainment?? i loved her
"Good hotel but trying to order drinks after sitting at a table was a nightmare. The gym facility was good but the lack of sports was dire. I only got 1 game of water basket and couldent find the sports schedule,nighttime entertainment was good, but mainly because the spanish barwomen chatted me up, anyone know her name? small, brownish hair? I really wanted to give her a kiss goodbye but she wasnt there on my last night. please if anyone has the slightest clue of her name or email i would appreciate it."

No service at this hotel
"We Stayed at the Jardines Del Teidi in April - the weather was fab. good points about this hotel. the water was hot & constant the bath towels were big & soft..thats it! The hotel is not in any resort, its at the top of a very steep hill, and consists of blocks of bedrooms scatered down the hill side, there are many steps, within the hotel grounds .The rooms are basic 3 star standard there was a fridge but it was not stocked, not even with water.Having paid a 4 star price we were very dissapoined at the service or lack of it in this hotel There was no waiter service at the bar - had to scrum down with Europeans if you wanted a drink.The dining room was christened the morgue, due to the black shrouds which covered the tables, on top of which was a brown PLASTIC table cloth, black PLASTIC mats and black paper napkins, every meal was accompanied by a rendering of the same dreary funeral type music which went around in a loop and never changed, . There is no lounge in the hotel. Guests made a rapid exit straight after dinner to one of the local bars or another hotel, there is just no where to sit and relax, this was not the all inclusive holiday we had paid for. had to buy drinks every night else where, then climb heart attacK hill to get back. Go there at your peril"

"Very nice location, the most beautiful beach El Duque is cca 8 min. to walk. The best wiev and very nice hotel. But forget for service in Restaurant or in Bar. Nobody takes care about you. Maybe two people are doing very good job, but it is not enought. Many spanish people and childs.
But we spent a lot of time to knowing of tenerife. Was very nice. "

Great place, pity about the food
"There are a lot of things going for this hotel but the food was terrible. Great rooms, ours had a large, private patio/balcony (we had paid for sea view) and was in a block of 2 so was quiet. The pools were lovely and for the first time in Tenerife the sun beds were NOT all booked by 8.00am! We went down around 9.00am and just chose our spot.
Although outside school holidays there were a lot of small children and babies - not our scene at all ,so the pool areas were noisy.
On all inclusive you need to chose your drink carefully -beer good, gin ok, brandy rough, clavados rougher, "baileys" passable - don't try the "Tia Maria" unless you like liquorice. Red wine fine.(didn't try the others)
The food was luke warm, overcooked, supplied sporadically when it was busy and most meat was tough as old boots. There were only a few very hard working waiters not enough. The atmosphere was of a canteen rather than a restaurant. We lived off salad and bread and cheese largely. Admitedly we did not expect good food but this was bad."

"The hotel was very nice, the rooms are as shown in the brochure, very spacious, they have fantastic views looking over the pool,gardens & beach.The food was ok but not fantastic, breakfast as most hotels quite a lot to choose from, we did find the evening meal a bit of a let down ok if you like chips with everything? could have done with a few potates & fresh veg, but enough choice not to go hungry. The pool area on the ground floor was very nice with lovely views overlooking the sea, the pool is quite deep & also very cold! It is within walking distance to the beach & shops but has quite a steep hill if walking back. The reception staff where very polite & helpfull but the bar staff need to learn a few customer service skills & how to smile! The hotel entertainment was quite good much better than we'd expected. We would definately stay there again when go back to Tenerife."

Value, Quality and Cleanliness
"From start to finish, we had an Excellent stay at this hotel.The standard of our room was very high,as we paid a supplement for a sea view and it was well worth it.
The food was of a good standard, but it got a repetetive after two weeks as meals had a theme, Italian, Mexican, Chinese, as well as the usual Paella, Chicken, Pork every night.The fish dishes provided were fantastic, if you like fish, as i do.Bottles of quality wine, San Miguel beer,branded soft drinks are seved with your meal.
We ate out on a couple of nights, just for a change, overall, food was very good.
Staff were also very nice and polite. As i speak a little of their language,this seemed to make a difference as they appreciate guests who try to speak Spanish.Reception staff were very helpful and courteous toward us. The Restaurant staff were nice also, with a few exceptions. Some of the male waiters were more interested in serving the female guests, rather than serving the 40 year plus Scotsman and his wife.But, you can understand that one.The cleaning staff who made up and cleaned our room every day were very polite and done a great job.
The guests at the hotel were mainly from Spain,Germany, Holland and Italy, very few British guests.I suppose this may have its plus points.
A point to be improved could be the Satellite TV,it never had any British channels, apart from CNN.Not that you watch the telly much on this lovely Island, but it would be nice to have Sky or BBC news.
Location of the hotel in Adeje, was brilliant. On a hill, which may not suit everyone, but it had lovely views from all parts of the hotel.
Taxi into Las Americas from hotel was 6.00 euro , to our favourite bar, The Temple Bar/ Irish Fiddler in San Eugenio, from hotel was 5.00 euro going and 7.00euro, going back late.
In to Los Christianos was 11.00 euro.The bus service is good, but you have to walk down to the local terminus, 10 minute walk from the hotel, to get the bus to take you all over. Bus fare is 1.30 euro single to Las Americas/Los Christianos.Good value.
I would have no problem in returning to this hotel for another holiday.

"Have been to Costa Adeje twice before so after a stint in hospital my husband and I and our daughter needed a trip away.
booked holiday via Monarch which was fine and the hotel was pleasant upon arrival. We had a room on the fifth floor with the balcony/terrace going straight out onto the pool, which worried me somewhat due to the little one only being 3, so made sure she could not open the doors!
The restaurant food was ok for the first few days but went downhill by day 4. Food was cold and nothing was labelled so most of it was guess work. Trying to find somewhere to sit was also a challenge every evening. (tip.. order a bottle of wine a not a glass!)
I wouldn't even bother going down to the 'snack bar' during the day unless you like the same food being offered to you on a daily basis, (also the occasional fashion show beng held around the pool) The staff really couldn't care less about you in the 'snack bar', just asking for a beer seemed a huge hassle for them. Most of the time you had them putting hot food straight onto cold food, eg: chips, burgers, kebab meat!
The room was fine, clean and tidy.
Be warned.. the walk to the beach and back is a slight trek and uphill all the way back!
Wouldn't really recommend the hotel to anyone but Costa Adeje is lovely and will be going back later this year (but to a different hotel)
