El Duque Aparthotel


Just a short walk from the beach, El Duque teams stylish interiors with 2 big pools.

This place has plenty of style, from its smart marble lobby to its contemporary bedrooms. It also has 2 pools – one of them heated. Theme nights at the buffet restaurant keep the menu fresh.

The hotel is less than 10 minutes’ walk to the manmade, sandy beaches of Playa del Duque, and there’s a little shopping complex right next-door.

Could be better

Stayed at the el duque aparthotel for the last 2 weeks of august. Overall I would say it wasnt a bad place to stay but there are things that need improving! We arrived about 10pm at a locked gate to what looked like the rear of the hotel but later we were told its was the front. There were 2 plates of food out for us but it was hardly worth the effort. A small slice of ham and cheese, roll an apple! Woke up on the first morning at 8 to building work going on above the shops (stayed in block H). The ceiling fan moved quite a bit an was quite noisy so didnt sleep the best as it was vey hot an stuffy without a/c. Asked our rep Dean about getting a room with air con an moving blocks because of the building work. His response was 'sit it out' cos he didnt think there was substantial building work going on! The next day was sunday so sure enough there was no building work but there was again every day after that! Men shouting, drilling, using pneumatic tools and angle grinders! Substantial to me!! Because of this we kept the balcony door closed most of the time which didnt help with the heat! Again we asked Dean if we could move an he said he would find out. He got back to us the next day saying that there were only spare rooms in the same block which was no good to us! We were offered a fan to rent for the duration at a cost of about 30€ + 10€ deposit. Very expencive thinking back now but much needed!! We were told by Dean than none of the apartments had air con but we could clearly see units on the front of most around the pool. We found it strange that the sunbeds are chained up each night an not unlocked until 10am. People waiting by them for the guy to come around an then its a free for all. Kids waiting around till 10 to jump in the water! Not suposed to reserve sunbeds or umbrellas but everyone else did so we did too! Not nearly enough room for them all though so was very crowded at times. No poolside snacks through the day but we were all inc so not needed really an drinks were good enough. Restaurant got very busy an crowded an had to que a fair bit. The one thing I will say about the food is that theres plenty of choice but its not great. Salad bar got used a fair bit most meal times but that got tedious! Evening entertainment not great.....infact quite poor an short shows after a long wait! Kids entertainment started at 7ish until about 9:30 an the evening shows were normally about an hour long so all done by half 10 an bar closed about 11ish an lights out soon after! We would have to get a table early though an sit through the whole thing just to have a seat for the night. Very small area an not enough seats by far but I suppose that works in the hotels favor if the dont have to give out much alcohol. Hotel now has wi-fi in reception that works around the pool but its temperamental at best! Plenty to do out an about. Check out the market every thursday an saturday an siam park is massive. We spent a whole day there an didnt get bored. Its amazing! Aqualand for little kids but its not very good in comparison! Mt Tidie 1/2 day is good too but expencive as when u get to the coach stop there's not a lot to do but go up in the cable car which was about 26€ each adult an you still dont get quite to the sumit which disappointed me slightly but great for the holiday album! Loro park has everything an plenty of shows at different times of day. Blown away by the dolphins an in awe of the orca whales. Beaches are clean an tidy but very busy an plenty of places to stop for a bite to eat or drink at any time of day. The walks nice, 7km long if ur feeling fit. Loads of looky looky though which lets it down slightly but the sunset views make it worthwhile. We ate out about 5 times which shows what we thought of the hotel food. Dont bother with subway or mcdonalds when there are some really tasty things to try out there but watch the price difference on the beers. Lots are just 1€ a pint but one we went to charged me 3.65€.....didn't stay long lol. To sum up The island itself is beautiful an tenerife has lots to offer everyone from little children, teens, allnight drinkers, couples, families and the older generation. We would go back but just not to that hotel. We have been to better places for the same money in the past. More

Really nice hotel, just a couple of bad points!

Lovely apart hotel, was very clean and tidy, saw cleaners everyday they came and did our room, location was good, only short walk to shops and the beach. Bad points, sun beds aren't unlocked until 10am and be prepared for a fight, people stand and guard them! There was no snack bar facilities in the day time and the food in the restaurant became very repetitive eating in there three times a day, think the hotel should think about improving this, entertainment could be a lot better, I know people say you shouldn't except much but would be nice to have something decent to watch of an evening! Beware it is full of German/Dutch who can be very rude.More

Abbie S,

Nice Family Holiday

We are just back from a week all inclusive (a group of 6 including 2 3yo twins on their first holiday abroad) at aparthotel El Duque. In relation to the rooms, we were delighted to discover that myself, my wife & the kids room was upgraded to a superior room at second floor level in Block A, which thankfully had air conditioning units in the main living area & the bedroom. The room was clean, well laid out & spacious enough for a family of 4, the sofa acted as a third bed & a camper bed was also set up to accommodate the fourth person in the room. No great shakes but did the job. My in-laws who travelled with us had a ground floor studio room in Block I which was of similar size but open plan in style, they had no air/con however & instead relied on a ceiling mounted fan, but they said they were happy with the room. The rooms were cleaned daily & towels replaced daily also if required. The cleaning, bar & restaurant staff were very friendly & helpful but we found some (not all) of the reception staff a little dismissive & unwelcoming when dealing with them. A minor gripe admittedly as the vast majority of the staff were polite, friendly & helpful. The restaurant was fine, the food better than I had expected, though a tad repetitive which was becoming a bit of a problem with respect to the kids (& the adults to be fair) after 3 or 4 days. Be prepared for a queue though as it can get busy at peak times, we saw queue's extending outside the building for breakfast most mornings as we left. The bars closed at 11pm but as we were with young children that wasn't a problem for us as we tended to head to bed around that time anyway. The hotel grounds were spotlessly clean & maintained on a daily basis as was the pool which was clean & well maintained. Overall we were more than happy with our stay & thoroughly enjoyed the hotel & its facilities & would definitely recommend to young families.More

Very Nice Hotel

The first week of July we went with little children (4 & 6) to this hotel. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Staff is very nice and willing to explain and respond to all your questions. The buffet is average, it isn't very good but also not terrible. We chose to book just the breakfast but do one lunch and one diner there during our stay. There are enough nice restaurants in the neighborhood were you can eat perfectly.More

Very clean and friendly staff

We just got back from a weeks all inclusive here. Lovely pool,clean hotel m,lovely friendly staff both in restaurant and bar, we went with our 4 kids age 12,9,6 and 4 they all loved it good range of drinks little pots of ice cream provided for kids with all inclusive Downsides Pool doesn't open until ten and everyone still reserves sunbeds even though they are chained up they have towels over so we ended up reserving them too! The area is a bit built up we were in i block which overlooked shopping centre and the sea so not too bad. Overall lovely holiday entertainment was ok kids loved it max very good who did kids entertainment but the young girl was a liability! We enjoyed it but will not return More
