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.

3 star?

A brilliant stay was had by all or party First time we have taken a 3 star holiday ww were a little worried on what we might have found but it was a3 star pulling of 4 star hotel Can't wait for our returnMore


Great stay! Great staff! Spotless hotel! Better than a 3*!

This was our second choice of hotel but turned out to be much better standard that the first one (which had better reviews and was fully booked)...Looked far better than the hotel we were supposed to be in! I emailed El Duque and requested a sea view and a balcony and we were not disappointed! We stayed in room A203 and it was a new standard room with a huge balcony with 2 sunbeds as well as a table and chairs (I believe all A block rooms were the same). If we chose, we could sunbathe on our balcony until 7:30pm without being shaded! Room was more like an apartment with a kitchen, fridge, toaster etc (a kettle or an iron can be hired for 15 Euro deposit each item), TV and a sofa bed in the living area as well as the twin bedroom and lovely bathroom. We met people in another block in a studio apartment and although rooms were older in style they were still roomy enough. The entire resort was spotlessly clean. Staff were lovely and friendly particularly Pedro and Jave who work behind the bar and the lady with the dark hair behind reception. Entertainment most nights which was cheesy as you'd expect but made us laugh :) We enjoyed the music played around the bar and pool area (Heart radio, Kiss radio etc) and on our last day there was a fashion show in the daytime with a DJ/singer (who did a great Robin Thicke - Blurred lines complete with female models!!) which we found hilariously entertaining...they should definitely do this more days!! Food was fine, breakfast was the least enjoyable meal but we ate cereal as I would at home and it was lunchtime before you knew it! A lot of variation of pork but also had lamb skewers, casseroles, nice juicy chicken and a themed night once in the week. I have stayed in other 3* hotels and this is definitely at the higher end of the range if it is only listed as a 3* Although the website states you have to pay for wifi we had it free for our entire stay in our rooms and in the bar and pool areas, you just had to re-log in that's all.More

Excellent Hotel

Stayed at the this hotel from the 04/05/2016-11/05/2016 and had a great stay. We had a pool view one bedroom apartment which also had a lovely view of the mountains. Housekeeping good, restaurant staff fantastic and reception staff very friendly. There are two pools to choose from, one of the pools is meant to be heated but we couldn't tell the difference, we mostly stayed by the pool by the reception as it was quieter. Food choice fantastic, even a few themed nights which offer Chinese, Indian and Italian food. We were very surprised and pleased that big pieces of steaks were offered at the buffet on some days. If you are a vegetarian there are also plenty of meat free dishes available for you. Entertainment variety good, Magician and Loro act very entertaining. Only downside of the hotel is that there is a bit of a steep hill to get to the beach so would not recommend mobility impaired individuals to stay here if you would like easy access to the beach. I would stay again if returning Costa Adeje.More

excellent hotel

Fantastic hotel; we went for four nights over the bank holiday weekend and came home feeing as if we had been a way for a week. Excellent service from the moment we arrived. We arrived at midday so both rooms weren't ready; our bags were popped in the luggage room and we were asked to have a drink at the pool bar and they would have at least one room ready within 30mins. We had requested rooms in the same block as we were on holiday with our elderly mums. They gave us rooms on the same floor either side of the centre staircase and handy for the lifts which were perfect. Clean towels and rooms cleaned every day. Sunbeds get unlocked at 10am so no hogging of the beds from sunrise; plenty of extra beds stacked up too. Food in the restaurant was very good at every meal. Good selection of salads, hot dishes and always meat or fish cooked on the hot plate. Red, white and rose wines in the restaurant were all sampled and perfectly drinkable - you help yourselves to drinks from the bar area in the restaurant; my husband tells me the beer was okay too. Staff work really hard to ensure the tables are cleared and reset quickly but don't rush you with your meal. This is a small hotel so there maybe isn't the huge selection of dishes you get in larger restaurants; however my mother in law can be a picky eater but ate well at every meal. excellent value for money hotel; we would not hesitate to recommend it and hope to go back next yearMore

Thoroughly Enjoyed

I took my girlfriend here (We're both 18) at the end of April, mainly because it was affordable, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. They gave us an upgrade to start with, which is always nice, and the apartment was clean and spacious - decent view as well. Food was great - good variety and there was always something we could eat (Chicken was amazing). Hotel staff were really helpful, and the only thing that didn't initially work was the safe, which they fixed within half an hour of us letting them know. Also we were all inclusive and they were generous with the vodka measures on the nights we drank... which is all us 18 year olds really care about isn't it. 4 star quality for 3 star price. Great hotelMore
