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
The Regency Country Club is a good option for families with children. Wonderful pool area, mini-golf and a kid club for 2 hours 5 days a week.
The apartments are not to the standard of the hotel. Cheap and old furniture, small televisions, terrible WiFi and no coffee or tea. They are very clean though.
We had a two floor apartment, and the WiFi could only be used in the room where the router is.
We booked with included breakfast, the buffet was good but I would have liked to have the option of having a cup of coffee before I left the room. I have never been to a hotel without that option before.
The hotel is isolated, there is a bus to go downtown but it stops running at 18:00. So you need to take a taxi where ever you need to go.
They use the isolation of the hotel to their advantage and sell the most expensive beer in Spain. 4 euros for a small beer at the pool bar!
All in all a nice stay.
If you don't mind bad WiFi, no coffee in the morning and expensive beer.
A lovely, clean and well managed resort with friendly and efficient staff. All the amenities required on a short break were available including a courtesy bus to the nearby beaches and shopping areas. The pool bar with food was also a plus. I had a minor issue over a bill and this was dealt with calmly and efficiently so thumbs up to the management for their assistance. I would definitely use the resort again and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
Wonderful pool, child friendly, very helpful and friendly staff, excellent food which caters for children too.
The apartments are very clean.
Only ten minutes drive to Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas, so not too far from the beach and numerous restaurants.
The hotel is nice, although its needs an upgrade as the furniture is old. We stayed at the 4 bedroom penthouse apartment with jacuzzi and its a nice apartment with great view from the deck terrace where you also have you own jacuzzi which was very much loved by the kids at the end of a day at the pool.
The breakfast was great, plenty of choices. We had lunch every day at the poolbar which is very nice, food of good quality in a beautiful surrounding. The only downside was, although advertised as a heated pool, the water was cold. So cold that our kids used the pool half of what they normally do, we as adults even went in max one time a day, other guests where also complaining about this daily and acc to the hotel the heating was set at maximum 28C, the water actually was 23C.
A big, big compliment goes out to Alfredo and Rodrigo, two waiters who where there every day and worked very hard to satisfy all guests. Our kids even missed the constant big smile Alfredo when we went home, that says enough.
All in all would reccommend the hotel, if they could only heat up the pool water....
Really lovely resort and friendly staff. We had a ground floor apt behind the mini golf. It was weird at times having people playing right in front of our loungers, but our 7yr old son absolutely loved going out for a game so it was worth it. Also really handy for the pool and lots of sun loungers available at all times even though the place was full. Not sure where everyone was cos it never felt busy, which was great! We had several chill out days and both kids (7 & 11) enjoyed going to the kids club at different times of the day to do arts & crafts activities. Irina was fantastic with them. We all enjoyed using the jacuzzi bath in our apt and housekeeping was great with fresh shower & pool towels daily. The free bus into town was handy for visiting beaches in Costa Adeje and dolphin & whale watching boat trip at Los Cristianos. I definitely recommend a day at nearby waterpark Siam Park, the rides are amazing!
