Scattered in the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of west Africa, the sub-tropical Canary Islands are blessed with year-round sunshine. Tenerife is the largest of the eight islands with an average annual temperature of 23°C. It’s not just fun in the sun that beckons: countless adventures and cultural treats lie in store for visitors too. Along with great beaches and a wealth of family attractions, the island has rugged national parks, vineyards and picturesque historic towns. We’re based in Costa Adeje in the south – close to beaches, bustling resorts and golf courses. Our location makes us a popular option for guests seeking a little r’n’r: a barefoot stroll on the sand or sipping a sundowner overlooking the ocean. When you’re up for some action, though, you don’t need to venture far…

Siam Park in Tenerife
Dolphin watching in Tenerife


Siam Park is hands-down one of the best outings to do with (and without) children on Tenerife. Happily, it’s right next door to our Resort! It has a host of slides, water rides and wet play areas for little ones as well as rapids and high-speed, vertical flumes. After all that excitement, chill out on the park’s beach (complete with wave pool) or take a ride along its lazy river. When you’re not whizzing down slides, Tenerife has some of Europe’s best whale-watching waters. Catch a catamaran cruise from nearby Puerto Colón’s marina to go in search of dolphins and whales or catch a ferry over to La Gomera, a wild and glorious island just a 50-minute cruise away.

Playa del Duque Costa Adeje Tenerife


Gentle surf, water sports, plenty of space on the sun-drenched sand and chilled-out beach clubs: south Tenerife’s Atlantic-lapped coastline has something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’ve got young kids wanting to splash about in the water’s edge, older kids wanting to ride the waves or teens who just want to sunbathe all day long, you’ll be spoiled for choice in Tenerife. Our nearest beach is Playa del Bobo, a sheltered and shallow bay with soft sands and water sport-free waves perfect for a peaceful paddle or swim. Playa del Duque is a Blue Flag belter just along the coast, great for people watching as well as beach-bar hopping. Active types will adore Playa de Troya in Playa de Las Américas, and its adjacent bays Troya I and Troya II which have all the water sports and lively beach bars.

People browsing clothing items at a market


Fancy a change from the sunbathe, swim, snooze routine? Combine a beach day with a little shopping. Set just back from the sand, the chic CC Safari Centre on Avenida Las Americas is the place to peruse upscale boutiques with plenty of good restaurants and bars for pitstops as you go. Plaza del Duque is another smart shopping centre, close to the Playa del Duque with plenty of stores you can pick up some additions to your holiday wardrobe. Street markets are the place to go if you’re looking for special souvenirs to take home. There’s one in Costa Adeje on Thursdays and Saturdays while Los Cristianos holds one on Sunday mornings. To stock up on provisions for your apartment, you can’t beat the Adeje Farmers’ Market, held on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, with stalls brimming with island-grown produce..

Papas Arrugadas - a Canarian potato dish


From harbourside eateries selling fresh-off-the-boat fish and tiny tucked-away tapas bars to chilled chiringuitos and slick fine dining restaurants, Tenerife has an array of places to eat and drink. Just a quick cab ride down the road from us are the many bars, cafés and restaurants of Costa Adeje, Puerto Colón marina and Playa de las Américas. These lively areas offer a diverse dining scene with plenty of international cuisines along with regional restaurants that specialise in traditional Canarian dishes. Don’t miss papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) with fiery mojo sauce, ropa vieja (a meat and potato stew) and sancocho Canario (a delicious, salted fish dish). The volcanic island also has a deep-rooted wine growing tradition – you can visit local vineyards to sample the various varieties.

Nightlife in Playa de las Americas Tenerife
Beach party as the sun goes down


With the lights of Playa de las Américas twinkling just down below our Resort, countless bars, cafés, clubs and restaurants lie just a short taxi ride away. There’s always something exciting happening in this part of the island – start off in Costa Adeje’s stylish beach bars and rooftop cocktail lounges for evening drinks, many with expansive Atlantic views, then see where the night takes you. Stroll along the Golden Mile and you’ll soon find a spot that suits your vibe – from pubs with live music to nightclubs with open-air dance floors where you can shimmy till sunrise. There’s a similarly lively vibe in Los Cristianos. Wander along its oceanfront strip San Telmo to take your pick from its restaurants and bars, including some great salsa spots, that promise a good time.
