On the west coast of Tenerife, the Royal Garden Villas and Spa has 28 one- to three-bedroom residences decked out with solar-heated private pools, washing machines and covered terraces with swoon-worthy golf course and ocean views. Each villa has a fully equipped kitchen, spa-like bathroom, well-designed outdoor space and thoughtful, exotic décor, as well as rich textures and dark yet calming color palettes. The hotel’s spa is equally relaxing, with wood and stone accents, a waterfall, an indoor thermal circuit, Turkish bath and ice fountain. Don’t feel like cooking after a day at the spa? Jardin restaurant is a romantic spot serving zesty dishes like duck confit on a bed of sweet potato pureè with sautéed citrus fruits.
In the Area
Set in Costa Adeje, Tenerife’s newest resort area, the Royal Garden Villas and Spa is a self-contained vacation wonderland. For those who feel more adventurous, there’s hiking in the dramatic Masca Valley or up El Teide volcano, as well as boat trips past the Cliffs of the Giants. There are also a spate of family-friendly attractions on the island such as waterparks, horseback riding centers and flamenco shows.
How to Get There
We booked a one-bedroom villa here for 12 days in February. From the entrance, over a bridge above the swimming pool, we knew we were in for a real treat. The villas are all first-class, really well equipped, the private pool was perfect for dipping into after sunbathing on the glorious terrace. The rooms are spacious, the kitchens are fully equipped (except no microwave), the beds are large and very comfortable. Everything works and staff are quick to respond to any query. All the staff from waiters and waitresses, to pool maintenance and cleaners, to turndown staff, are all cheerful and competent. Food is excellent. My only quibble would be breakfast and dinner only available, or light lunches. The manager is extremely pleasant and helpful.
This hotel is like an oasis with beautiful flowers, interesting artefacts and "green" tree lined alleyways between the villas just like old streets. it is kept extremely clean and well-ordered. The villas are roomy, well appointed and comfortable. The full kitchen facilities, including tumbler dryer, are a bonus. The patio with plunge pool is the amazing feature - so private and enjoyable for keeping cool and healthy exercise! Unlike others, we found the food very acceptable but we like meat and the lamb and beef - as well as the fish - were lovely! All the staff, without exception were friendly and helpful. Only one point lost - no mugs in the villa and the main swimming pool is fairly small.
Beautiful hotel with personal service.
The rooms are very comfortable and the surroundings relaxed, the terrace is awesome.
The staff is wonderful, strives to make you feel good and welcome.
I'll definitely come back :)
this is a wonderful place to have a relaxed holiday - staff are superb and facilities excellent. Big downside is food - very average sadly - if that was improved this would be a truly superb hotel. All food served in the basement restaurant when the beautiful terrace and weather is just there! Depressing hot dog sausages, watery scrambled eggs, cold pancakes, tinned fruit - not at all 5*. Real shame. Everything else excellent.
We've just come back from Tenerife and have stayed at a beautifully presented and a peacefully atomospheric hotel.
We stayed in the Kentia villa which is a two bedroomed place with large ensuite bathrooms, a small kitchen, a large living room and a wonderful patio area with a plunge pull.
The view we had looked over the golf range and distant views of Caleta and playas de Americas there is a road in front which you can't really see and the traffic is quite light so you switch off from it.
The only negative I can say is that the restaurant is expensive (no surprise) for dinner but not enough variety both at breakfast and dinner.
Caleta is a short drive away (to far to walk unless you're very fit) which has many local restaurants for you to try.
The staff are very friendly and nothing is to much trouble for them.
if you want to stay somewhere slightly more special don't hesitate to book here.
