El Duque Aparthotel
The El Duque Aparthotel is a stylish, comfortable place to stay. It provides access to great facilities, including two pools and a gym, and it’s a 10-minute walk to the desert sands of Playa del Duque. The rooms are fresh and modern, and all visitors are welcomed into the marble lobby by friendly hosts. Outside are two pools (as well as a mini pool for mini visitors), and one of the pools is heated in the colder month. Food-wise, you can choose from a pool bar serving snacks all day, or a buffet restaurant that regularly changes its menu. The resort has plenty of activities to try and a packed evening entertainment schedule. You can also hire bikes from the hotel to explore the local area.
Overview of Costa Adeje, Tenerife
From Blue Flag beaches to waterfront restaurants, holidays to Tenerife are all about living the high life. The Costa Adeje is a popular spot with everyone from mainland locals to celebrities. Its laid-back sophistication gives holidays a refined edge. You can spend the morning relaxing on a gorgeous beach before browsing through designer boutiques in the afternoon. The gourmet cuisine is equally as tasty as the beachfront shacks selling authentic dishes, while you can step it up a notch at neighbouring Playa de las Americas and its bars and clubs. Costa Adeje has two Blue Flag beaches to try, and the El Duque Aparthotel is close to both of them. You can experience true Canarian colours at the black sands of Playa Fañabe, while the golden sands of Playa del Duque were imported from the Sahara. The town’s nightlife is more about cosy restaurants and live music than night-long raves, which makes it exceptionally family-friendly.
Things to do in Costa Adeje, Tenerife
Despite the great food at the El Duque Aparthotel, you’ll want to venture into the town to try out the restaurants. You’ll find everything from gourmet cuisine to authentic Spanish dishes. But one must-try food is sancocho – a delicious fish stew. A 10-minute drive away is Los Cristianos, which is one of the oldest resorts in Tenerife. From here, you can go out on whale and dolphin-spotting tours. The Thai-themed water park, Siam Park, isn’t too far away. From small flumes for little ones to giant, heart-racing plunges, there’s lots of fun to be had! Alternatively, hike across Mount Teide National Park and experience the majesty of Tenerife’s volcanic landscape. The Costa Adeje may come across as a luxurious, glamorous spot, but there’s more to it than celebrity visitors and high-end dining. You’ll find welcoming locals and family-friendly activities, as well as glorious walks, unique beaches and designer shopping.
