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.

6 out of ten from Fife holidaymakers
We requested a room on the 1st floor as many ground floor patios are very public with footpaths running adjacent. The receptionist told us we were getting a very good apartment Block A room 109. Our first impression was good overlooking the smaller heated pool an not so not good - looking over the balcony to see a seriously damaged privacy screen was unimpressive. The sofa covers had dubious stains and the lock on the window above the damaged screen was faulty. The bath had a chip which had started to show rust. The fridge had bacteria on the door seal and there were one or two other minor defects. We had arrived just before evening meals were discontinued. At about 10 p.m. we asked at the reception for an alternative apartment, but were told we had to see a manager in the morning. In the morning our list of defects was ignored as the same receptionist looked for an alternative which was in a corner looked on to a stair well and very close to where the entertainment venue was. We dismissed this room and spoke to Stephen the Thomsons rep. He examined our claims and he had almost all our defects attended to within two hours. Tip don't try to remonstrate with the reception staff speak to the person who can move mountains - Your Rep! The restaurant was of reasonable quality, if repetitive. Heated plates are a necessity. A stacking plate heater did exist but was either broken or not switched on. You could feel the heat from the food migrating into the cold plate as you moved towards your table. The microwave was positioned beside the plates rather than at the end of the counter where you had collected your food. entertainment was mediocre. Pedro, Rosa and our cleaning staff were very pleasant and helpful. Public areas very cleanMore

I went to El Duque last week and it was so amazing. The staff were so friendly. The accommodation was second to none, I shared a studio apartment with a friend and it was huge. You could have had a party for twelve people on the terrace. The whole complex was always being cleaned. The food in the all inclusive restaurant was good. There was plenty of choice. Two bar staff Pedro and Luis were great and the entertainment guy Angel (pronounced angle) was so motivating. I even did aquarobics. So well done First Choice and Thomsons for a great holiday.More

The good the bad the ugly
We stayed here the first week of December, I thought our room was lovely. Very clean, cleaned every day. The beds did have a mattress protection cover on them, making them very noisy every time you turned. Our view was awful (bloke D) we over looked the back of shops, only good thing about that was you could pick up the free wifi from the bar out in the shopping centre. You do need to buy a coffee to get the code but once we had the code we used it all week. The hotel does have wifi but you need to pay every time. Directly opposite the hotel there is a market held every Thursday and Saturday. We did think the hotel grounds were kept so clean and tidy. Both pools were very clean BUT cold. I don't believe they were heated as advertised. The food in my opinion was awful. Cold and boring. I don't expect to have English food by any means. But I do expect it to be hot and taste edible. They didn't cater for children in til the end of the week when more children started arriving. There is a microwave in the corner to heat your food. You can NOT wear shorts in to the restaurant at night. The restaurant staff are like robots they are there to do a job and that's it. I don't think it pays to go all inclusive in this hotel. Once breakfast is finished at 10am you can't get a drink on the hotel grounds til 11am. I don't mean booze I mean any drink. Tea coffee. Hotel receptionist told us to go to the supermarket and buy supplies. Not what you want to hear when you pay to go all inclusive. On the last day are pick up time was 1pm, we didn't have to check out til 12pm so we packed up and went for a walk. When we came back to the room (11:30)the key had been discontinued so we couldn't get in the room. Sorry to go on. More

Great Hotel. The staff were absolutely brilliant. Food was very good considering the catering team had to cater for all nationalities and age ranges. We took our 16 month old child, she was treated brilliantly by all the staff. We could have asked for more from them. The hotel rooms were great, very clean with fresh towels every morning. The hotel grounds were well looked after and were also very clean. Lots to do in Costa Adeje. Lots of beautiful beaches and bars. Would defo recommend, not sure why people moan on here about things that are out of the hotels hands.More
