About Roca Nivaria GH - Adrian Hoteles
The Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel is a 5* resort in Tenerife, overlooking the majestic Atlantic Ocean lapping against the islands western shore. The hotel is hugely popular, especially amongst British travellers regardless of whether they’re a holidaying couple, family, or even enjoying some much needed ‘me time’ alone. One reason why travellers flock to this resort is due to its prime location, nestled between the lively resort town of Costa Adeje to the south, and the quieter and more secluded Callao Salvaje, just to the north. Callao Salvaje lies on the unusual black beaches of Playa Paraiso, formed from the volcanic activity for which Tenerife is renowned. The hotel is situated just 30 minutes from Tenerife south airport, and approximately one hour from the north airport, making it extremely accessible to all. Families are well catered for here, along with those wanting a more intimate, romantic getaway, and it’s this versatility which has earned the resort a number of awards. Ranging from travellers’ choice awards to being crowned the ‘Best Hotel in Spain’, the global recognition has solidified the Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel’s place as one of Tenerife’s best resorts.
Room Information and Room Facilities
The Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel boasts 289 guest rooms, which makes it quite compact by Tenerife standards. Whatever room you choose, whether it be a standard double room or a luxurious suite, you can be sure that all accommodation comes complete with a private balcony or terrace, allowing you to enjoy the warm Tenerife weather whilst gazing out at the pool, gardens, mountains, or ocean. Double rooms are perfect for those looking for a low-key getaway, and for couples or solo travellers. However, the suites are the ideal size for larger groups and families. The Junior and Superior suites offer excellent amenities, but, most importantly, they accommodate families, allowing everyone to stay together and enjoy some holiday bonding. The Presidential and Royal suites, however, tend to offer a little more in terms of comfort and opulence. With Jacuzzi baths, luxury bathrooms, and guaranteed views across to the nearby island of La Gomera, these suites are for those who simply won’t settle for anything less than extravagance.
Facilities, Entertainment, Activities
This resort has plenty to offer both adults and children in terms of activities and entertainment. For adults, the hotel offers a range of excursions and golf experiences in and around the local area. There are also opportunities onsite to play tennis, go for a swim, practice your aim at archery classes, and play a little beach volleyball. At the end of the day, the wellness centre offers relaxing Jacuzzi pools, beauty treatments, and massages. For the little ones, the Mini Club is enough to keep even the most active of children happy and healthy during their time in Tenerife. Catering to children from as young as 10 months right through to 12 years of age, there are games, crafts, and playgrounds to enjoy. There are also dedicated childrens’ pools, and the spa offers a select number of child-friendly treatments so that the little ones don’t feel left out.
Food and Drink Options
There are four bars and four restaurants located onsite at the Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel, ranging from laid back venues in which to unwind, to sophisticated establishments for enjoying a glamourous evening. The resort’s main restaurant, Garoe, is buffet-style, serving up a wide range of different appetisers, main courses, and desserts. There’s even a pirate-themed station designed especially for the little ones. There are two speciality dining venues: the Italian-themed Verona and Spanish-themed Burgos, which allow guests to sample authentic dishes from around the Mediterranean. Ahemon is a casual pool-side bar, perfect for small snacks and nibbles during the day. The pool and lobby bars are the perfect informal venues for socialising and relaxing during the day, whereas the Coloquio bar really comes to life in the evenings, with live piano music, orchestras, and theatre shows, all enjoyed over a cocktail or two. Travelling with kids? No problem! The Belingo nightclub is the ideal place for little ones to burn off some energy before bed at the mini disco.

One of the most restful holidays I can r...
"One of the most restful holidays I can remember. Cleanliness, comfort and friendliness all combined to make this a very pleasant experience. The Atlantic views are stunning, the food delicious, plentiful and extremely varied. The swimming pools are clean and impressively designed. The walkways around the pools are slippery but there are handrails and lots of signs to remind you. The immediate area is scarcely worth a visit. Yes, there are building sites with new hotels going up but you can't hear any noise whilst you are in the hotel. If shopping is your thing, get the free shuttle to the sister hotel, the high-class shops and the promenade walks. It's also worthwhile taking the island Tour up to Mt Teide, the dormant volcano. I'm glad I didn't bother hiring a car because the mountain roads are steep and twisting. I was able to sit back and enjoy the stunning views. I'm going back next year!"

Fantastic Hotel in wrong location
"We stayed at the Roca Nivaria Hotel in June 2007 for one week on an all-inclusive basis. The hotel is lovely with great views. The pool area is fantastic. Food is nice something different every night which they cook in front of you. The rooms are very spacious and lovely. The only thing that let this hotel down was the location and night time entertainment. Everyone in bed for 10:30 each night as it is so poor entertainment and the all-inclusive finishes at 11:00pm which doesnt help this. There is no place to walk to even if you just like to walk your dinner off forget it!!! The staff are very friendly and helpful. If you just would like a week away from it all and not bothered about night time then this place would be ideal. I would also like to say that I would say this hotel is a 4 star not 5 star. Please look at Security Travel prices before booking with others - saved a fortune, also book all inclusive before you go it is expensive to upgrade when you get there."

Fab hotel area leaves a lot to be desired
"Fantastic hotel!! Area leaves a lot to be desired but the hotel runs a courtesy bus to the sister hotel in Adeje so you can escape from the hotel if you so wish! The best part of the hotel for us was the pool area, the hotel rooms and the food, all of which were excellent. I stayed at the hotel with my mum for 1 week just to get away from it all and relax which is exactly what the hotel provided for us, total relaxation and rest! None of the tat and noise that you can associate tenerife with. You should not stay at this hotel if you are expecting a lot of entertainment and a 'happening' scene, the hotel caters more for couples and older more descerning people rather than say a family with teenagers who want a more active and varied holiday. I would defintely return to the hotel, the staff were marvellous and the maids I can't praise high enough!!"

Excellent - good for youngsters and yet still cool for adults
"I wouldnt usually give my time to writing a review, but am so grateful and impressed with Roca Nivaria that I felt I owed it to them to spread the word. The holiday search criteria of my wife and I was simple â somewhere hot, that felt a little bit special, and with a good creche so that we could relax fully whilst our 14 month fully enjoyed himself with children of a similar age. Our expectations were surpassed â the Hotel itself was much better than we could have hoped for and the staff were all particularly helpful and friendly. The facilities for young children were excellent and we felt that we had chosen a place that didnt compromise how my wife and I wanted to spend this holiday (in a book dozing by a pool), nor compromise our childs safety or enjoyment. A perfect balance. The rooms are fantastic, the food is excellent, the environment is very nice and the atmosphere is quietly classy whilst remaining laidback and friendly."

Lovely food lovely Hotel expensive drinks poor staff
"A modern hotel which lived up to the description contempory in design . Surrounded by high tower blocks not as the photos show you on the internet, lots of building work in the area, although not too close to the hotel Not much else to do in the surrounding area but if your after a quiet stay fine. Drinks where expensive and bar service was always very slow. Although some staff where pleasant, most in the dining area seemed unhappy and put out when asked for assistance. Be careful with the all inclusive the hotels geared up for the half board so you pay over the odds. Main restaurant had a good variety and great views from the terrace only spoil by children not controlled and left to run about, the show cooking was nothing special and should be improved the main fault is the fact itâs a buffet? It should be waiter service that would justify the 5*. Didnât get to try the Al a carte restaurants but never seemed to be well used during our stay. Gym poorly equipped not up to the 5* and not staffed, equipment was miss- matched and more in line with the home user. Wellness centre not yet complete Pool area good with great views. Lovely gardens and layout"

Can't wait to return!
"Don't be put off by the approach to Roca Nivaria! There is a hill down to the entrance and on both sides of the road are a small number of supermarkets(useful for buying water, sunscreen etc) run down looking bars/restaurants and a couple of high rise hotels. On the sea side of the hotel there is a wide promenade to walk around. The front of the hotel is rather understated but the reception area is smart and nicely laid out. We found the reception staff to be welcoming, efficient and informative. Rooms: the rooms are modern and well furnished. All seemed to have balconies which looked over the pool or gardens. The cleaning was of a very high standard and the bathrooms were well equipped with toiletries. Pools: One heated (saltwater) and one not - very cold! It always seemed to be windier around the unheated, lower pool. Plenty of sun loungers. Two towels provided per person which you could change whenever you wanted. The towel kiosk had a supply of magazines/books left by other guests which you could borrow. Food: Thankfully lunch at the Pool bar was of a good standard (pizzas, soups, pastas, toasted sandwiches etc) because I don't know where we would have gone in Playa Paraiso to eat! The buffet was the usual Canary Island hotel buffet standard but got a bit monotonous. You can also eat at the hotel's Verona (Italian) or Burgos (Spanish) restaurants but be sure to book well in advance especially for the Italian. We didn't eat in the Spanish but the Italian was good. Sports: Excellent sports area - multisports area for basketball, football, volleyball etc plus table tennis, archery, giant draughts and chess, table football,tennis,snooker - fantastic for older children/teenagers. The animation team were super with this age group and kept our 11 year old occupied every morning and afternoon. We had a fantastic holiday here and would recommend it especially to families with children of any age."

"myself, my husband & 19 month child had a fantastic week . Our initial nervousness about Tenerife as a location was quickly erased when we reached this fabulous hotel. The hotel was wonderful with excellant facilities for young children, the staff had seemingly endless energy from running the kids club to providing entertainment most evenings. This is also a slight negative in that in the childrens club I felt the adult to child ratio was too low and the staff's lack of childcare experience was evident when it came to dealing with the under 2's. However the child's heated pool was a blessing. Food & facilities fantastic, entertainment was great. the staff where always helpful & energetic. Would highly recommend a visit."

good for a young family
"we go away for 2 weeks every christmas, stayed at the princessa yaiza on lanzarotte last year so this had much to live up to as a good hotel for grown-ups and also for under 5's. we liked the hotel, new and well laid out. we have two double rooms which interconnected, and even though we were near reception it was quiet and worked well. the staff were great, main pool was heated which is essential at this time of year, and we took the complimentary bus service to the other hotel in the chain every couple of days to get a little beach action for the children. only downside was the food. a little repetitive and bland. the lanzaroeet food was pretty exceptional i think, as was their waiting staff, but you can't have everything."

A great hotel
"We (family with 14 and 10 years old children) have spent a great week in this property. We booked one family room, which in fact are two large (really) connected rooms. The property is brand new, staff extremely helpful (especially if you can/try speak some Spanish) and the location is simply superb. It was the first hotel that offered selection of picnic baskets (3 menus) and provides sophisticated food well packed that can be eaten outside. Pool with see water, very well maintained (daily cleaned), heated up to 30C . What you see on hotel page is really how it looks. The animation was somehow weak, however, we did not miss it at all. The hotel is an excellent choice for families with 2 children that want to have a luxurious holiday for affordable money. We will return."

Good for Golfers
"This is a good hotel for golfers. Rent a car at the airport. Book all the tee times at the reception and you get 10% - 20% discount . Most expensive course is Abama - the 140 Euros is not worth it. Closest good course is Costa Adeje 10 minutes away which used to be a banana plantation. Our golfing highlights were 1) playing Buenavista in the north (1 1/2 hour by car) which you can compare to Pebble Beach. Sometimes the waves clash against ther rocks and the white foam is 30 - 50 meters higher than the greens! Due to all this salty water the greens on the ocean are not so great. 2) Take a ferry to Gomera and play Tecina Golf. Better public, gorgeous views and time does not count. The hotel is rated ***** which certainly counts for the pool area. The hotel is completely quiet on the beach without a boulevard between hotel & beach,. But in a ***** hotel they should not serve Del Monte fruits out of a tin can and the hot buffet consists of somebody flipping a bit of meat & fish, just like in MCDonalds. Also the quality of the matrasses & pillows are so-so. Next year a spa will open up. The Brits and Australians party iat night in Playa de las Americas, the Spaniards go to the Buddha Bar and Casa Blanca (Christianos). Take a taxi if you go out and like beer & wine because at night alcohol checks by the guarda civil are literally everywhere. I would go back ! Don Duque de la Playa"

"This is a great 5* hotel. We went all inclusive staying in a pool view room. We booked our flights and hotel separtely and saved quite a bit off brochure prices. Flights with thomsonfly and hotel and transfers with Relaxabroad. Agree with some of the reviews but found the food to be excellent and what you would expect from a 5* hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I do think though the hotel lacks some atmosphere but I think this is due to it being newish. Once it builds up its reputation it will be fantastic. Not much to do in the surrounding area though if you like to go out for walks etc."

"On arrival hotel modern, but lacked atmosphere, initial impact of rooms excellent But realised no tea coffee making facilities, no iron, mini bar lacked wine, beer soft drinks only. Concerned re slippery tiles around complex, my 13yr old son did fall on slippery floor in play area, no signage to indicate sprinklers had been on. We found the food variable, the evening meal probably the worst often not enough staff to provide prompt attention, never got offered extra drinks, food sometimes cold, very much portion controlled, staff not particularly friendly. The A la carte restaurants were diabolical we booked our table for 20. 45 hrs were kept waiting for a further 15 mins to be seated even though the restaurant had only a few tables occupied, the room lacked ambiance, no music etc, almost like going to a funeral, the food took ages to arrive I even asked the waiter if he had forgotten our order, on arrival it was unappetizing, the lunch time restaurant was the best i really enjoyed the food, the staff once they got used to you were quiet friendly. My sons enjoyed the amenities and the activities with the animation team, evening entertainment ok. I found the paper work to sign for every drink etc, very time consuming for both staff and customers they would benefit greatly from an arm band system speeding up the service provided. On the whole future potential, but definitely not five star quality."
