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.

An Amazing stay!

I stayed for a week with my boyfriend, and even upon arriving we were pleasantly surprised by how big our room was. It was like a little apartment with a kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom and a patio. Our only complaint about the bedroom was that we'd have liked it to have a double bed instead of two singles pushed together, but it was all still very cosy. Mattresses were memory-foam, there was plenty of storage space, and the patio area was HUGE! There's also a fan in the living room area that really helped to keep us nice and cool at night. The maids did a fantastic job everyday too. The staff at reception were very kind and helpful and the bar staff in particular were so, so friendly! Also the events/leisure organiser is really fun and cool too, we got to play water polo and take part in a mini ping pong tournament on one of our lazier days. We went all inclusive, which honestly was the best decision we made. Breakfast and dinner were always excellent and very varied, and lunch was also of a good standard. We were allowed as many drinks refills as we wanted and had more food than we could handle! There were even themed evenings too which was fun. All inclusive meant we could get lots of drinks for free. Our only complaint would be that the selection could have been a little more varied, as the only beer available in all-inclusive was Dorada, and wsn't that great, and the only snacks on offer were these little ice cream pots. However, it didn't bother us too much as between meals we were rarely very hungry from the buffets they served, and their selection of cocktails was really nice (the mojitos and strawberry daiquiris are worth a look in, as well as their banana liqeur and tequila sunrise!) The evening entertainment was okay, there were one or two stand out nights however, on one of which some flamenco dancers performed, and on the other there were some soul singers who really got everyone involved in their performances. It was all good fun, but if the entertainment isn't your thing there's always drinks, pool tables, a ping pong table, a gym and a shopping mall nearby. The location of the hotel is pretty perfect, being so close to the beach and all kinds of local amenities and such that you can explore. My partner and I got massages from a salon in the mall nextdoor, and also used their arcade. There's all kinds of tourist information places close by too in which you can rent bikes, cars, or buy tickets for excursions or events. We rented bikes through a service recommended by the hotel and had a wonderful time exploring the coast. Other notable things worth doing in the area are seeing the amazing Siam Park, the best waterpark in Europe, and the Monkey Park in Los Cristianos. And if it's your first time in Tenerife, as it was ours, I definitely recommend going to visit Mount Teide at least once. We booked our holiday through Thompson and it turned out so well for us, we had such a memorable trip and would definitely stay at this hotel again. Apart from a few minor complaints it really delivered far more than we expected, everything was made very easy and stress-free, especially checkout ( we left in the evening and were offered a shower room to use before we left, as well as a luggage room to keep our things while we relaxed by the pool, and extended our all-inclusive for only 10 euros, which included lunch, drinks and snacks). Could not recommend this hotel enough, even though it's a 3 star, it could easily pass as a 4.More

Just Back

Just got home from a Tenerife holiday having stayed at The El Duque. Receptionists were excellent, cleaners excellent doing a great job every day, restaurant staff superb. Everyone was friendly and very professional, the accommodation was spotlessly clean and very secure, I went half board and could not be more pleased with the great choice of breakfast and the brilliant evening meals. I will return. The only BUT was that I ordered x2 cokes to have with my evening meal for myself and my son over x5 nights, I was served 200ml bottles (a can is 330 mils) I was horrified when I paid the bill to find that they charged me E2.75 for each one. Calculate :- x10 200 ml bottles of coke @E2.75 each that was 27.5 Euros for 2litres of coke (one bottle) about £ 16 So disappointed and annoyed to be faced with this after a otherwise FAULTLESS experience at The El Duque. Come on hotel you can easily check who I am, don't spoil perfection by an act of greed please.More

Lovely hotel

Stayed a week with my husband and our 15 month twin boys. The hotel and grounds are spotless. Areas are always maintained well and clean. We had upgraded with Thomson to a one bedroom from a studio. On arrival the hotel hadn't realised this but they sorted it quickly. The room has plenty of amenities, kitchen with cutlery, hobs etc. Yes the furniture could do with a lick of paint but otherwise is fine. Don't know what people expect for 3*. Bathroom is lovely and the terrace huge!!! Thought the buffet was really good especially breakfast and dinner. Staff are really lovely and friendly. There was different entertainment every evening and kids entrainment too. Overall we had a really good time. ☺More

Perfect family hotel.

We stayed here for a week at the end of May/beginning of June. We were a little apprehensive but this place was spot on. The food was just right, they had a different theme each night. We had a family room on ground floor with a huge balcony. Swimming pool lovely. The place is spotless, the cleaners are out at the crack of dawn cleaning the play area/pool. Rooms cleaned well too. I have absolutely no complaints. The staff in the dining room/bar were lovely, reception staff very friendly too. No hire charge for TV remote like another reviewer said?! Only a fan in the living room area and it was 30+ degrees but the room still cool if you keep curtains closed in bedroom! I'm trying to book this place again, I don't know why it's only 3*, it looked the nicest hotel by far on our coach drop off and it definitely was.More


lovely chilledout relaxing week with my daughter before her Uni adventure

Having read trip advisor before we arrived here I was a little apprehensive. But I found the el duque a lovely hotel. The cleaners were there any time of day and the whole place smelt clean and fresh. The staff were very helpful. We had an issue with our safety deposit box door when we got there, within 15 minutes of reporting it the repair man had been, had a look and brought us another door. Excellent service. We heard people complaining about the food but we thought it was very nice. We would definitely go back againMore
