OVERVIEW

Having fun in the sun is a luxury experience at five-star Royal Garden Villas & Spa. General manager Fiona McAndrew is conspicuous by her presence at breakfast time, welcoming guests and engaging them in light conversation that's as sunny as the weather. The villas are stunning homes far away from home.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Royal Garden Villa & Spa is not a golf hotel, but golfers do stay, such is the proximity to Golf Costa Adeje. Some villas back onto a road which is not the main thoroughfare but you should expect some traffic noise. Monkey Beach Club's cocktail of the week is a must-drink, and they hold events such as Russian parties.

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. Book flights to Tenerife.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Welcome to Europe's Bali, a medium-haul option to finding paradise without jetting halfway across the world. There's an Asian vibe going on at Royal Garden Villas & Spa. The complex almost feels like a temple, so be prepared for a religious experience. The design is deliberate, to encourage maximum relaxation.

THE FACILITIES

Forgot your phone charger? No worries. The friendly reception will loan you a replacement. The infinity pool has a chiringuito-style bar. For greater physical exertion, work out at the boutique gym or use the squash court next door.
