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.

Enjoyable family holiday

This was our first family holiday abroad (our son was 4 year old) First time all inclusive too. Booked through jet2. We paid for a superior studio. Requested studio on ground floor next to pool. We were given room h002. Lovely small complex very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful who all work really hard. I was nervous after reading the reviews but was pleasantly suprised. We all loved it here. Great location 10 min walk downhill and ur on the strip where all the bars and restaurants are. All inclusive was worth the money and food was fine always managed to find something. It did get bit repetitive so we ate out a few nights but worth it for drinks and lunch as very little difference between self catering price and all inclusive. Kids and adults pool fab for our needs and all kids just shared the different toys and inflatables. We recommend the brasserie for meals and went to Harleys american theme bar too where they do great cocktails. If ur not a totally fussy person then you will like el duque. Only negative I would make was there weren't a lot of English speaking families around until a few days before we were leaving but people still very friendly. Also noticed a few couples at the bar at night with baby monitors but no kids in sight so think they'd left them in the room. I was totally against this, my son was with us at all times after all its his holiday too. Each to their own but in this day age I wouldn't risk leaving my child alone. More

Leighann B,

Short winter break

Weather not too good but can't blame the hotel for that! Excellent hotel and location. Tenerife is not our favourite destination but this hotel is so comfortable that one really doesn't need to go too far from it; just hang around and relax! Ideal for the winter break if the sun shines! Small points - would have liked a coffee/tea maker in the room ( not unreasonable for a 5 star hotel) and the lounge is a bit sparse especially when the weather is bad (but it usually is not).More

January break.

We stayed at the El Duque aparthotel for 1 week at the end of January. We found it generally quite good value for money. We were given a pool side view room, which was spotlessly clean and surprisingly modern (having read previous reviews). The pools and the complex were also equally impressive, we never saw any issues with sun loungers whilst we were here. The bar staff were friendly, and the bar list for all inclusive was generally okay. The food we found to be very hit or miss and very repetitive. The breakfast was fantastic, but there seemed to be very little choice on a lunch time and evening? Possibly because I am pregnant and very fussy, but we did feel the need to tell First Choice of this complaint. There is plenty of restauarants and cafes a short walk away from the complex. We would recommend staying here despite the food, and perhaps ourselves would come back self catering or bed & breakfast as it has many positive points. The staff work very hard, often staying to do a full 12 hour shift from what we saw, and the cleanliness of the hotel was excellent. More

Sarah-Louise H,

Don't trust the Staff

Very nice and clean hotel.But Don't trust the cleaning staff. They took our money from wallet hidden in suitcases. You should take safetybox. I'm thankfull they didn't take all our money only 150 €. This hotel have wifi conection but customers are not allowed to use it. That sukcs 😞 More

Anne S,

Enjoyable family break

Just came back from here with my husband and 7 month old son. All in all had a good holiday, only 3* so you expect 3* standard. Hotel grounds were lovely, we had a suite-which they'd apparently upgraded us to, but was just a normal 1 bed apt I think, but had huge lovely balcony and nice and spacious, nice view over the heated pool, room a005. Food was ok, depends what you are used to I suppose. Our baby ate lots, we tended to go out after he'd eaten and get something a bit better from the restaurants outside. If we went out for lunch we'd both have nice baguettes with chips and a drink each and usually cost around 14€. Drinks were ok, but this time of year 1 of the pool bars were closed so made the only other one get quite busy at times. Improvements could be made, after 10am when breakfast finishes the next bar doesn't open till 11am, so an hour without drinks. Nowhere that served snacks, just mealtimes in the one restaurant. TV Remote was 20€, although only 1 English Channel, kettle was 20€ which we needed for your sons bottles! towels were 15€, all refundable but annoying as then at the end of the hol you've got lots of € left you could have used for dinners etc. really good range of shops and restaurants out the front of the hotel! big market which seemed to happen twice a week. All staff were very friendly and were very lovely towards our little boy. Good access everywhere, lots of ramps. Silly how the bus drops you at the gates at top of complex and then you have to struggle with your luggage down to reception at bottom of complex, I Spose it was harder for us with a pram also. Never watched the entertainment so can't comment but looked like there was a variety of different things from the posters we saw up. We went and looked at the gym, very big and impressive. Read lots of reviews before going about miserable staff but never had any problems at all. Certainly don't think the hotel is outdated either, they were doing lots of painting while we were there and hotel blocks all look lovely and modern and looked after. Just a few things that let it down and could be improved really that would make this a wonderful hotel. Food is def a biggie for me but I'm used to staying in rius which offer lots of choice and more than one restaurant. Def what you make of it and if you don't go here with high hopes over a 3* standard you won't be disappointed. Also strangely the pool that's heated is not the child's pool, that doesn't make much sense to me : /More
