Regency Country Club sits in a tranquil spot amid the foothills of the grand volcanic peak of Teide, on the beautiful Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife. It’s set among verdant gardens of palm trees, tropical shrubs and brightly colored flowers, but it’s not only the immediate location that’s dreamy. Just five minutes down the road lies the charming the town of Los Cristianos and its pretty Playa de las Vistas beach.
At this peaceful TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, you might be forgiven for momentarily thinking you’ve arrived in Indonesia rather than Spain. The property is designed along the aesthetic principals of the tropical island of Bali, with oriental hand-carved statues dotted around its stone and marble public areas. Stunning Atlantic views abound here, and the hotel boasts three heated, outdoor pools and a tempting selection of Thai, Zen, Ayurvedic and Balinese massages, plus hot stone therapy.
Suites are classically and tastefully furnished, and feature a large bedroom with a separate lounge area and an open-plan and fully equipped kitchen/dining room. Kick back on sun loungers on your private terrace when the weather’s nice.
Regency Country Club is located in Tenerife’s exclusive Chafoya area and a five-minute drive from the town of Los Cristianos, which has a variety of pubs, nightclubs and shops, plus a lovely harbor and the beautiful beach of Playa de las Vistas. There are six 18-hole golf courses in the vicinity. You can also try your hand at diving, sailing and both windsurfing and kite-surfing when the weather cooperates. Tenerife’s most iconic location is the mountain of Teide and the surrounding Las Canadas nature reserve, where rare tropical flowers bloom in the fertile volcanic soil.
How to Get There
Idyllic place above Los Cristianos, Tenerife, but courtesy bus to the coast.
Staff delightful & very obliging.
A la Carte menu was the same all week which was a bit disappointing for a 5* resort. Meats tended to be of the dry side, served with the same side boat of strong jus, no matter which meat ordered.
Poolside very clean apart from Sunday morning - at start of breakfast on the terrace, the clear pond screens were very grubby with hand prints - children's.
Amazing that 'irresponsible' parents/guardians did not watch their toddlers who could have quite easily fallen in the pond - there are no screens on the arched bridges - toddlers playing & hanging over edges - nerve racking to watch.
It's a shame it was not 'adults only'.
On subject of the these bridges, I tripped on an unlit ridge when approaching from the restaurant terrace at night.
Your own shadow hides the ridge - this appears to be the only place where there are no side lights at floor level or from above.
No member of staff came to check my condition. The waitress did not report the incident - as I found out next morning.
No-one at anytime came to see the area until I insisted they look. I can only think health & safety is quite different to the UK - so please be careful.
Duplex apartment - tiled, curved staircase a bit slippy if wet feet.
Beds a bit too hard, as were pillows.
Lovely powerful showers in apartment.
Massage tent poolside excellent.
Nice musician & fashion show poolside on Sunday after breakfast.
This hotel is in a lovely Balinese inspired setting on a hill with a lovely view of the sea. We had a lovely time here. The pool was slightly cool but it didn’t stop the kids from getting in! The jacuzzi was lovely. We were a family of five in a two bedroom self catering apartment. One child slept on the sofa bed. The beds were comfortable the ac worked. The wifi was working on the upper level of the apartment but not the lower level. All in all we had a good stay but I think for a family of five it’s a big tight. Perfect for a family of four or two couples.
We’ve been coming here for over 8 years now, but haven’t visited for a while as standards -but not prices - had slipped on our last stay 3 years ago.
Well I’m delighted to report that things are now great once again. Our one bedroom apartment didn’t have a great view granted - we could see the unfinished addition to the Regency and unfinished hospital- but has been redecorated and now boasts usb charging hubs, along with all the little things that are often missing- decent hairdryer, proper coat hangers and a well equipped kitchen.
Beds are a little hard, but pleased that our sons bed in the living room was pull out and already made up, rather than having to remake every morning. Air con appears not to work, but it wasn’t boiling when we were there so not a problem.
We paid for breakfast ( 10 euros per person per day if you book for the entire stay or 12 euros if you just turn up) nice selection of fruit, cooked breakfast and other things, although the machine coffee is undrinkable and it is really very cheeky to have a sign up offering expresso for sale at an additional cost. Luckily we knew this from previous stay and bring our own filter coffee for use in the room.
Wifi is a bit spotty, but better than before.
Entertainment programme is so much better than before - lots of activities during the day and a flamenco display on the Saturday night.
Pool could do with being a couple of degrees warmer as could the “hot” tub. It’s worth noting that as you’re a few miles uphill , it is a few degrees colder than at sea level.
Cocktail prices seem to have been reduced and their pina coladas are excellent. Another good addition- particularly for those with young families- is the takeaway service from reception with a selection of basic meals such as spaghetti bolognaise at around 10 euros each. Or it is possible to buy some basic food stuff from the on site mini market. There are 3 restaurants 10 mins steep walk up the hill at Chayofa or of course a huge variety if you get the bus or drive down to the beach.
Real mixture of clients - families, couples and all accommodated well, our teen son likes it but there isn’t loads for his age range to do.Place is full but doesn’t seem crowded. We always hire a car from AutoReisen so we have a bit of freedom to explore.
We have tried other options in Tenerife, but keep coming back here due to the relaxing environment and high standards.
