OVERVIEW

Tenerife began its reinvention as a high-class destination in 1993. That was the year when the five-star Bahía del Duque came into being. It's been a trailblazer in the south of the island ever since. Forward-thinking entrepreneurs the Zamarano family have also established their hotel as a leader in sustainability.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

This was a virgin plot of land in the south of Tenerife with nothing between here and Playa de las Americás six kilometres down the coast - not even a beach, which was later created by dredging the sand from the ocean's floor. It's a 17-minute taxi ride from Tenerife South Airport. Splash the cash at nearby Plaza del Duque Luxury Shopping, where you can find all the best brands and labels.

By plane: flights from London, Birmingham and Manchester to Tenerife take around 4 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from Tenerife South airport. Free parking on-site. Book flights to Lanzarote.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

If Disney made a film set in a Canarian village, it would look like Bahía del Duque. Here, fairytale turrets stand out alongside a copy of Santa Cruz de Tenerife's Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Concepción. Architect Andrés Piñeiro let his imagination run riot and this hotel's fantasy was made real.

THE FACILITIES

Staff wear traditional Canarian costumes and offer a professional service. Facilities include six pools, a 9-hole Pitch & Putt and a 24-hour gym. Stroll through 63,000 square metres of the beautiful botanic garden.
