Hotel Luabay Costa Adeje


There's a lot to love about this place, but the big, heart-shaped outdoor pool is one of the highlights. There's also an infinity pool where you get stretching sunset views. Inside the hotel, the bedrooms are modern, and done out in subtle, stylish colours. Late risers will love the breakfasts – there's a Continental-style option available 'til 1pm from the snack bar. Elsewhere there's a buffet restaurant covering lunch and dinner as well as cooked breakfasts up to 10.30am, and a themed place that swaps between Mexican and Spanish evenings. Location-wise it's a 3-minute walk to the beach, and not much longer in a taxi to Siam Park or Playa de las Americas.

Not worth 4 Stars

This was definitely a "self-service" restaurant. You had to hunt around the large restaurant for cutlery to lay your own table, grab a rarely sighted and moving waiter to ask for a drink. One waiter on the pasta bar was very rude. Food was without exception lukewarm and very little guidance for vegetarians. The snack bar manager man-handled me to throw me out because he wasn't open. He couldn't understand English so couldn't understand I wasn't there for an early snack but on legitimate business. Very few staff spoke or understood English. All inclusive "free" drinks were mainly crushed ice with a flavour added. Not what I would call real drinks. They tasted like slush puppies. Dark main lounge; a poor environment to read in by day and much worse when the evening music started early. The maid wiped the wash hand basin but never once the marble surround which had toothpaste and soap marks on it. Only 3 drawers for a double room. Very disappointed, not value for money and definitely not FOUR STARS. or worth a second visit.More

Very dissapointing

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 1 week early April this year we had researched the hotel on trip advisor and it seemed to fit the bill as we normally travel with Thomsons and have always had excellent holidays and as this was a Platinum we thought even better . Platinum it is not ,we were not on our own there were several couples we met who found the food uninteresting and rather tasteless , accomodation ok and the entertainment poor . The food quality in the pool bar was very poor and again uninteresting .The 06 30 rush for sunbeds is very true and as usual people reserve them and buzz off for the day selfish or what ? Although the location is classed as Costa Adeje it is more Torviscas the area being a little time worn .The hotel is very clean and most of the staff very pleasant and helpful ,would we go again ,definitely no and Thomson should remove the Platinum status from this hotel its misleading , we have stayed in Thomson Gold and 3 star hotels which were far superior to this one in every way .More

What a lovely hotel to stay

We arrived back yesterday after spending two weeks at Luabay Hotel. We had a fantastic holiday. All members of staff are extremely helpful and polite. Our room was number 113 which was above the entrance overlooking the road. We had a very large lounge, separate bathroom with a large shower and bath. (No floods from this shower!!) Large bedroom. Complete with a large balcony including table & chairs. We were on the dining room floor which was great because we didn't have to use the lifts until the day we came home. You could not fault the selection of food at all meal times. If someone couldn't find something to eat they have a problem. If you like musicals then book an evening out The Sound of Musicals. It was a fantastic show. The cappucinno coffee was the best coffee ever. Maybe not a platinium hotel but definately 3/4 star. Would definately return to thi hotel.More

a nursing home

just returned from this hotel only a week there and that was long enough.Firstly let me say that's it,s full of OAPS long faces ,it,s like on holiday with the living dead.The rooms are very small,single beds,bathroom very tiny only a shower, but good pressure buffet not a lot of choice ,fresh fruit not a lot of ,tinned fruit such a same as a lot of fresh fruit comes from spain .the wine was undrinkable had to buy our own ,it,s not worth the prices that is charge for the hotel we find that in Europe the hotels are not worth allinclusive prices because of all the extra you have to pay for when your there. The location is great and some of the staff are friendly. I would not recommend this hotel if you are young or have children as you are looked upon by old people which reins this hotel. sunbeds are taken by old people at an early hour ,so you need to be up by the crack of dawn. I did not like this hotel at all purely because no double beds my daughter had to sleep on a camp bed as the room was not big enough for a third bed and we paided 580 pounds for her to travel to sleep on that not very happy with that at all.Icould go on and on about this hotel but I will leave it .thomsons / first choice needs to specify this in the brouches about the hotels feel that they are getting very slack and very over pricedMore

good value if you book early

We stayed at the Luabay for a week in April which is before the season really kicks off. So prices were ok in regards to the delivered value. Rooms with seaview were good and clean all the time, very friendly staff. Only the food gets boring after a while but good options are close by/More
