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.

Good value holiday

This aparthotel is 3 star and I can see why as it does not have some of the refinements of a 4 star. However, it was perfectly adequate for our needs. The apartment was very spacious with a great view overlooking the largest pool which is also a very good size. The food was very acceptable with enough choice each day for us as we like to eat healthily. There were plenty of salads and fruits with 2 grills and a roast each day, as well as other dishes. Plenty of fish which is expensive to buy in a restaurant. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We usually go to different places on holiday and if we could take the El duque aparthotel with us we would do so.More

Exactly what it says on the tin!

Booked this holiday on line, just picked it out, you know 1 of many! Just 6 wks before due to go, sorta last min thing as the wife wanted a week away. Turned out to be a good choice. We had a 1 bed apartment sleeps 4, but just the 2 of us, & plenty of room even if you wanted to swing a cat! Right I'll try & do this the quick way. 1 large pool, 1 smaller pool both lovely. Bar at both pools (although smaller pool bar not open during our stay 19/26 April 2015) Dinning room large, buffet style, we were all inc, no complaints regarding food whatsoever. Entertainment every evening 21.00ish. Only thing the wife was peeved about was No aircon! Just ceiling fan in lounge! we were on 2nd floor above the dinning room looking out over the pool, lovely setting & felt safe enough to leave windows & patio doors open all night for cool air, everywhere was clean & tidy with pleasant staff. All in all a bloody good week away in tenerife for the price. If you want a good down to earth holiday with no poncy frills & alicart menus, then this is just the job. l can only comment on what it was like when we were there & "No complaints what-so-ever" Thanks for a lovely week EL Duque :-)More

Cockroach infested

we are currently in this hotel now, and are disgusted with it with the standard of the rooms. we have found 11 cockroaches and can hear them behind the fridge. the work surface is covered with ants and we've had to sleep with the kitchen light on to stop the roaches. I have a baby and a 4 year old and I can't leave the clean bottles on the side in case a roach climbs on them. we've told reception and they don't do anything, Matt the Thomson rep is useless as well. the sofa bed is not a sofa bed, it doesn't pull out you have to sleep on the sofa you've been sitting on all day, but the mattress is so thin you can feel the slats underneath, my dog has a better bed!! the cleaners don't clean the room, we left so baby powder on the work surface as a test and the didn't even wipe it away, the bathroom is dirty if you look around the toilet and the furniture is dated. balconies are small and not cleaned either. the food is basic and bland, and you only get good service if you pay for wine. the pool area is nice and clean though although the water in both pools is freezing. I've been coming to Tenerife for 30 years nearly and this is the worst place I've stayed I won't be back, I will be complaining to Thomson with photographic evidence of the standard and the roaches.More

Great Hotel!

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

Very happy with our choice, would really recommend!

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
