Las Terrazas de Abama
What We Love
- A stylish, spacious suite at an iconic, five-star golf resort on the tranquil coast of TenerifeStaying in a chic suite between the first and second holes of the lush golf course
- Teeing off at the famous Abama Golf Course, overlooking the island of La Gomera
- Lazing the afternoons away on a comfortable sun lounger by the gorgeous outdoor pool
What To Know
- There are 12 onsite restaurants and bars including the two Michelin-starred M.B restaurant and one Michelin-starred Japanese-fusion Kabuki restaurant
- Hotel boutiques sell luxury brands like Burberry, Miu Miu, D&G, Piaget, and Omega
- There are kids-only and adult-only pools
For state-of-the-art comfort and Atlantic views that seem to go on forever, this five-star spot in Guía de Isora is a real game changer. And for those seeking fun on the fairways, it’s just steps away from the world-famous Abama Golf Course – a 6,858-yard stretch of challenging terrain that features 22 lakes linked by waterfalls, white-sand bunkers and 25,000 palm trees.
Add to the mix a gorgeous outdoor pool and the use of a divine spa at the neighboring Ritz-Carlton Abama, and it’s easy to see why this decidedly swanky apartment complex ticks all the boxes. Days can be spent playing tennis, strolling around the stunning grounds, sinking a few cocktails at the lovely pool bar and venturing to the chic harbor and promenade at Playa San Juan.
There’s no shortage of designer touches in the chic suites, either. Superbly set in whitewashed buildings between the first and second holes of the golf course, all assure open-plan dining and living areas, sea-facing private terraces, fully equipped kitchens and all the mod cons you’ll need for a truly luxurious self-catering stay.
Set in whitewashed buildings surrounded by gorgeous gardens, all of the open-plan suites feature elegant and inviting décor, with soothing color accents, tiled flooring and high-end furnishings. Both the Classic Two Bedroom Sea View suite (sleeps four) and the larger Superior Three Bedroom Sea View suite with outdoor Jacuzzi (sleeps six) have a dining area, a separate living space, a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely outdoor terrace.
As this is a self-catering stay, there is no restaurant in the complex, although the neighboring Ritz-Carlton Abama offers gourmet dining for you to enjoy. There’s also an on-site bar – perfect for drinks at sunset.
You’ll be able to book treatments at the Ritz-Carlton Abama Spa – a sublime space with a lovely garden and an inviting cabana. Choose from massages (hot-stone, sports, deep-muscle), body wraps, customized facials, manicures, pedicures and more.
You’ll be staying in Guía de Isora, a gorgeous town on Tenerife’s western coast that’s celebrated for its old-school charm and sweeping Atlantic views. Must-dos include hitting the chic harbor and promenade at Playa San Juan, watching the windsurfers in action in Alcala and marveling at the supersized volcanic crater at Mount Teide National Park. We also recommend visiting the quaint villages of Chio and Chirche, getting up close with parrots, penguins and dolphins at Loro Parque and taking the cable car to the summit of Mount Teide – Spain’s highest mountain at 12,198 feet. It’s also worth visiting the capital city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife for its quirky boutiques, art galleries and huge Sunday flea market.
How to Get There
Wonderful stay at Las Terrazas. Quiet location, stunning views and excellent service from all staff. Apartment was clean and large. Free shuttle for beach and tennis courts. Lovely days by the heated pool. Nearby golf course Abama is absolutely stellar. Will definitely return.
We rented a one bedroom apartment for nine nights. The hotel is situated in one of the loveliest areas of Tenerife, away of the hustle and bustle of the southern part of the island, with great views of the Abama golf and the ocean, amidst well manicured gardens. The apartment was super clean, spacious, very quiet, with a nice view and tastefully decorated. The wifi was excellent. We did not use the breakfast option (for dietary constrictions) so the Nespresso machine at the room was very handy. The complimentary shuttle bus between the Les Terraces and the Ritz Carlton Abama is very convenient, and the pool areas were really great.
During our stay, we had a problem with the hot water in our apartment and complained to the reception multiple times. The problem was finally resolved by changing rooms and settled in a very professional manner by Mrs. Soruco, director general of the hotel.
All in all was a great experience and I can definitely call Les Terraces “our” home in Tenerife. We will definitely be back.
Few years ago we enjoyed a marvellous stay at Abama Hotel. This time we decided to stay in a new built Las Terrazas apartment, not knowing, that these are two different companies as it is not communicated at all from the management.
We learnt this at check-in and were rather disappointed due to several points:
it was not possible to get tables at Kabuki or MB Restaurants – nearly fully booked for the whole week. We tried several times and wasted a lot of efforts and time for getting tables not later than 21.00… We had to ask several times for getting answers regarding reservations – they have a chaotic reservation system.
Although we had given them our credit card details before our arrival, we had to fill out forms with our name, credit card details…. for a reservation in the hotel restaurants, where it was not possible to book the bill on our room. The staff at reception was friendly but incompetent and chaotic. This is no 5 star service at all!
We could not book tee times directly in the Proshop – we had to get a voucher at the reception at Las Terrazas and again to wait, as it mostly was very busy at this desk.
Food and service in Kabuki and MB were marvellous and a great experience.
We love playing golf at Abama golf course. This was the main reason why we booked this resort, hoping to get a better price for the greenfees. We paid € 168,- per round, per person, plus 70,- for the golf car, which is highly overpriced for guests staying at the resort. On our last stay at the hotel 3 years ago we had special golf deals for Abama course.
The food choice of breakfast at Melvin Restaurant was good; the egg dishes were fabulous. Many (mostly English) families with children stayed at the resort during the holiday week. We hardly could stand the noise and the hectic rush; unfortunately there is no area for people travelling without children. There was far too less staff; nevertheless we have to mention an extremely competent woman (Melania?) who gave her best. She stayed friendly all the time although she was responsible for EVERYTHING, she had to take orders, serving dishes, cleaning the tables, replacing plates…. all in all very uncomfortable for the guests and not at all worth the price.
We rented a one bedroom apartment which was fabulous, quiet and clean; nice terrace with a stunning view to the ocean and breath taking sun downers. Just one point to mention: the lights were faulty, some switches didn't work.
There are a lot of further apartments and houses under construction. I wonder how they will manage this in the future if there are nearly no restaurant reservations possible, tee times (also at Adeje, Las Americas…) hardly available, crowed breakfast area, waiting times for shuttles, overstrained staff…
All in all, bad management and the value for the money you pay for Las Terrazas is not appropriate at the moment.
Nevertheless we did not allow ourselves to spoil our holidays and enjoyed the sun and the stay at Tenerife.
We had a fantastic time at this wonderful hotel. The setting is out of this world and the apartments are very spacious and new. The apartments are well serviced apart from a few amenities, eg washing up liquid, dish cloths etc. I provided this feedback to the hotel.
The staff are all very nice and helpful too.
The pool area is lovely however the pool bar menu is limited and no kids menu available but again the hotel took this feedback from me.
The beach is a short drive and a complimentary shuttle bus can drop and collect you which was very easy.
Overall we had a great holiday and will be sure to return again.
Excellent break from the European winter on Tenerife at Terrazas de Abama.
2 bedroom apartment with great views, superb quality of services and fantastic interior decoration.
The whole place is new. Opened in 2015 but they have been adding buildings (~10 apartments each) every year. The resort is still modest in size and very quiet.
From any apartment, it’s max 3 minutes walk to one of the two pools. These are normally heated but during our stay, the heating system was down after a storm. One of the pools has a pool bar and restaurant. Decent prices and good service.
The complex is about 1km from the beach which you can see from any apartment as the apartments are built against a slope. There is situated on a golf course which can be accessed easily.
There is a service shuttle bus that you can call for a 5 minute transfer to the beach. Very convenient. There are also many golf carts whizzing about. I am sure these can be rented.
The 2 bedroom apartment is really great. Premium fit and finish with marble floors, good a/c with proper heating for chilly winter nights. Fully equipped kitchen and luxury bathroom.
Big flatscreen TVs with a modest selection of television channels.
Excellent WiFi. Not so much in terms of speed but it was very stable and reliable also for video calls.
The terrace is huge and has dining table, relax chairs and 2 sun-beds.
The resort is in the middle of nowhere. It’s only 10 minutes to a nearby village but only by car. Without a car, you are stuck.
Food, drink and facilities
There is a little food shop at reception. Nice stuff but not a replacement for a corner shop or supermarket. A nice selection of upmarket (local) product and fresh bread in the morning.
There is a good restaurant that we did not try but looks fancy. Bar food is fairly priced for a 5 star resort.
