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.

Well, we arrived late in the evening and were amazed at how big the room was. Amazing size. We went All Inclusive but our room also had a kitchen. The bathroom was lovely. The reception area of the hotel was great and very cool and modern. The outside pools were lovely and very pretty at night. There is a large pool, which is not heated but the smaller pool is. That at times was still a bit chilly though! The staff were really nice. The food was plenty and ample. It wasn't overly good on the palate but it was edible and there was more than enough for everyone. Some days the dining room was busier than others, so much so we gave breakfast a miss one morning as it was very busy and a very long queue. The only downside to this hotel is the location to the beach. This is quite a walk and its a steep hill to climb on the way back. Still, if that's the worst thing I can find it can't be bad - it was a great holiday!!! Its near the Costa Adeje market and some shopping centres. Definitely recommend this hotel.More

We booked this trip as an all inclusive family holiday for myself, my Husband and our two boys who are 5 and 4. As it is listed as a 3 star hotel we expected it to be clean and comfortable, if somewhat basic, and perhaps not the most inspiring to look at. We were really pleasantly surprised however! The complex itself is really pretty. The accommodation has been well thought out and looks really nice, the pools are beautiful as are all the communal areas such as the bars. We booked a family room which sleeps four and opted for a room with a pool view and a balcony. The balcony was much larger than expected which was good for our boys' as they could play out there while we were getting ready for the day or showering in the evening etc. The room itself was basic in terms of decoration but very clean (and cleaned daily) and in a good state of repair. It had everything we needed in it. The room was a ground floor apartment, block F. The food was on the whole very good, my only complaint was that there was not a large enough selection of vegetarian food, and on a couple of occasions a dish which was labelled as a vegetable dish had meat in as well on close inspection. Aside from that, the quality of the food was good enough to keep us all happy. The drinks which were included were branded soft drinks, local beers, wines and spirits (including cocktails made to order.) The white wine wasn't very nice but the red was actually very good! There was a heated pool which was warmer than the larger, unheated pool but not warm. I would describe it as cool, but if you swam around a little was perfectly fine. The main pool was cold but it was quite hot whilst we were there and we were all happy to swim in it. The children's pool was nice, both our boys enjoyed it and it came up to waist-height on my 4 year old at the deepest point. There are lifeguards at each pool during the opening hours which are 10:00-18:00. We went to watch the evening entertainment on a couple of nights which was good, the kids disco was a big hit. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I mentioned before about how clean the resort was; it really is immaculately kept. There are also lots of beautiful palm trees, olive trees, cactus and various other greenery about which added to the appeal. Across the road from the resort in one direction was a children's play park, and in the other directions a shopping mall with a useful supermarket and a couple of restaurants in case you are staying half board/SC or just fancied a change. The beach is a 10 minute walk away at a slow pace or with children! We booked a trip for a day (panoramic view of Teide) and booked it at the trip and car hire shop just the other side of the supermarket out of the main resort. It was a good deal cheaper than booking through your tour rep or the hotel itself and we had a great day! All in all we had a really great time here and would definitely come back!More

We stayed here in summer 2014 last 2 weeks of August and it was great! Pool area and surroundings we're very pretty and our room was cleaned every day by the maids! But it did get quite warm in the night because there wasn't air conditioning only a ceiling fan in the living room. We stayed all inclusive which was slightly repetitive with the food however there were a few themed nights and there was a wide variety with something for everyone. The location was good and close to many facilities however seemed a bit far out when walking back from the beach depending on which one you go to but it was fine. The only real complaint I could have really is that the bar area was too small at night time for the number of people who stayed here but otherwise it was a great holiday and I would love to return in the future.More

We traveled here in April 2015 for an Easter get away with our 2 year old. We stayed on half-board not all inclusive as most seem too. On arrival we were informed we had been upgraded to a suite (not aware of what the difference is?). We had to pay a deposit of 20 euros on check in for the tv remote and also had to either leave a 50 euro deposit or credit card in order to secure credit to purchase drinks with our evening meal in the restaurant as they do not take cash here you pay for your bill on check out. We were assigned room B001 which overlooked the smaller pool and was convenient access with having a pushchair. The room itself was fantastic, very clean, spacious and had a fabulous terrace with two sun loungers, umbrella and dining set. Having read a number of reviews on here prior to leaving we had been a bit apprehensive but I have to say that we honestly had nothing to worry about. The staff were all very friendly, the maids did a fantastic job with our room being cleaned every day and they even tidied little ones toys! The staff in the restaurant were fabulous especially with our little boy who loved all the attention. We felt there was a good variety of food to cater for all. There were a couple of themed nights whilst we were there (mexican and chinese) but there were always alternatives for those that did not eat/want this. There is a choice of pools, the smaller one which we overlooked is used for the entertainment (aqua aerobic, waterpolo etc.) however with it not being closed off due to access people did tend to start reserving sunbeds quite early. The larger pool opens at 10am and some mornings there were already a crowd ready to put towels down but there is always a lifeguard on who helps you locate a bed, move them for you etc. In terms of location i don't think we could have asked for any better for what we wanted. The hotel is within walking distance of the beachfront. We walked in both directions. If you go towards las americas you get into the very touristy area with lots of beach front cafe's touting for business, souvenir shops etc. there is also a sailing club and boat yard which the little one was fascinating watching. In the other direction you come to the fabulous Fanabe beach, this area seems much more up-market and peaceful. Not far from the hotel is a supermarket for groceries and just outside the hotel is the bus stop for the free bus to aqualand, jungle park, siam park etc. (Note these are on the road directly outside the hotel not with the stops on the market place as we had been told!). To the rear of the hotel (where the coach transfer dropped us) there is a public park which is great. we took our little boy here most nights after tea. The only things I can have a little grumble at are: - There was no kettle in the room (we boiled water in a saucepan) - Although it says the pool is heated it was still very cold, my little boy would only go in the pool in an inflatable boat and i had goosebumps whilst in there - If you are half board and order soft drinks with your evening meal they come in a very small 200ml bottle (bout half the size of a can!!)More
Don't go by what others have said. You can trust the maids and the food isn't too shabby but it caters to everyone. The drinks army too bad either and neither is the entertainment during the day or evening, there's plenty to do locally and there's the market directly across from it. I'd go back but only if they put air con in all the rooms otherwise it's unbearably hot. More
