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.

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


Great hotel

We stayed for 2 weeks all inclusive with a family of 7! 2 pensioners, 3 adults 1 teenager and 1 child! We arrived very late but we were pleasantly surprised to find dinner in our rooms which very much appriciated! The staff were very friendly and helpful including the cleaners. The resort is immaculate rooms are cleaned everyday sheets and towels too! Food was fantastic great variety and theme nights at least twice a week, no need to eat out never got bored! The only slight let down was the entertainment! Great for small children but not for teenagers or adults! We went out in the evenings to the seafront it was only a 10 mins walk lots of things going on there to keep you entertained!! I highly recommend the dolphin and whale watching boat trip it's a must... Unbelievable experience!!! Great location everything on your doorstep I would definitely go back and would highly recommend this hotel! Missing the scorching sunshine! :(More


Great..Until We Got Robbed!!

We (2 Adults&2 Children) Visited The El Duque in August 2013 and must say it was a good hotel, fabulous pools and pefect if you want to come back with less items than you went with! As we stayed in superior room, previously stayed in by the manager of the hotel, we found a Nomination bracelet placed inside our wardrobe in the bedroom had been stolen. It was placed in there in the morning a few days into our holiday later to discover after we had reclined by the pool for the day, it was gone. We reported the crime to reception and they physically laughed at us and would not allow us to know which maid cleaned our room that day. This causing us to spend a day in the police station and two children to be scared to sleep in the apartment we were in. The youngest, a seven year old at the time, pushed chairs against the door and the owner of the bracelet caused deep emotional pain. They only took one thing to be sure it didn't seem like a real robbery and claimed we could have lost it. Other than this we had a good holiday. But put us off from ever visiting the hotel ever again. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.More

Had a fabulous time

Just returned from 10 day holiday and were not disappointed. Apartment was spacious with modern, tasteful decor, air con and double balcony overlooking pool. It was also very clean and we had maid-service every day. (Beds v. comfortable but sofa beds were awful). Pool area was great and spotlessly clean. It did not open until 10am however which resulted in people hovering around waiting for the sunbeds to be unlocked and permission to go into the pool. We also witnessed people in the early hours of the morning tying towels around umbrellas and putting lilos on sunbeds (stacked and locked) which we found highly amusing as we always found a spare bed whatever time we arrived. This calmed down towards the back end of our stay. Food choice was huge - the meat and fish on the grill was fantastic. The choice of food changed daily with themed nights at least twice a week, although the breakfast choice was always the same. The canary buffet on our last evening was especially good. This is the first time we have been all inclusive and expected to have to eat out once or twice to give a bit of variety but apart from the occasional lunch when we were on excursions, we ate in the resort and didn't need to go elsewhere. Staff were excellent throughout the resort. The hill to the beach isn't that bad - more like a gradual slope and does not take too long to get to and from the beach. Would recommend that you check out the supermarket in the El Duque shopping centre before buying in the one on the corner by the Jardines de Navaria hotel on the way to the beach as this was very, very expensive. Didn't find the beach particularly clean with lots of plastic debris, so only went a couple of times. We had a great time and were very pleased with the choice of hotel - it's a pity we couldn't do anything about other people's manners......More

our family holiday

We stayed in this hotel for 11 nights. me and my wife and 2 kids. Over all it was a good holiday. The hotel is very clean and tidy. The maids were round every day to clean the rooms and did a great job. restaurant staff were all very pleasant and did a great job. Also the reception staff were very helpfull. The main problem with our hotel room was that there was no air con. when we booked we asked for it but when we got there the thomas cook reptold usthey donot have any rooms with air con. it has now been removed from the brosher.we did not get a fan or anything to cool us down so the whole holiday was like sleeping in a swet shop. there was one fan in the room but wobbled so bad we dare not leave it on over night. There are 2 pools. the main one opens at 10am and was like a stampeed to get to the sunlougers that we stacked up. The problem was not enough sun lougers but a lack of space.they were top to tail allway round but still not enough space. Our hotel room over looked the other pool which was open all the time. Guest stared putting towels on sun loungers at 6 am. By 7.30 theywere all taken so exspect some early mornings. only 1 bar was open from 11 am to 11pm. the other one at the small pool opens at 1 pm and closed at5 till 8 then open till midnight. Depending on which bar staff you got would depend on how much alcohole was put in the cocktails. (Mainly very small) Food was ok. Evening meals were the best with loads to chose from. Dinner was leftover from the night before and ofen poor standerd. Breakfast was a continental breakfast that was ok. \nothing to write home about. It was a very poor layout with one long que in a u shape so very often took 15 to 20 mins to get food. Night time were bad. the stage was crambed in a corner so you could not see anything. Also not enough space or chaire to sit so we didnot see any night time entertainment. No wifi. 3 computers to use at 1 euro for 15 mins. Daughter went though about 50 euros. Main point. Our holiday rep for thomsons was called dean. About as much use as tits on a bull. We booked tickets though him to save hassle. We booked a saver ticket to the zoo and water park. A saving for 10 euros per person. The guide cocked up and took our tickets off us as we got on the bus. then she got off. When we got to the zoo over 1 and ahalf hours away we had to pay again.100 quid. When we got back to the hotel we told dean. he told us he would sort it. After chasing him for 3 days we got refunded abit of the the money but ended up loosing the discount. Book with the local shop as he was no help.More
