Very pleased with the hotel and the staff.Comment of P. Richard , United Kingdom the 2015-03-04
"A lovely welcome break"
We were up graded to a suite with an outside Jacuzzi, a very good start to the 4 day break . We had booked half board as there was an offer to good to miss, one evening meal we ate inside, not great felt a bit like a canteen, but the rest of our meals were taken outside a far better experience. We had hired a car and spent very little time around the pools, couldn't believe how many had towels on them early morning, especially as the hotel was not full and plenty to go round. Beach Duque is also my favorite beach in Tenerife.
"Another great experience"
Why do we keep returning to La Plantacion' Because it delivers the experience we have come to expect. Always a warm welcome, superb staff, in a peaceful environment designed for relaxation. Great location and views, good choice at mealtimes, plenty of space for lazing around the pool areas and well appointed accommodation. Everything we want from our holiday is there for us at La Plantacion, and we appreciate the efforts of all the staff to make our stay enjoyable.
"An Oasis of Calm"
What a surprise this hotel was. Upon leaving the airport, the taxi took us through some very built-up concrete monstrosities . When we turned into the hotel driveway, we seemed to have turned off into a different world. This hotel is a true 5* with all of the facilities that go with that rating. From the doorman, to the front-desk staff, to the bell-boy, the poolside staff and the bar-staff and restaurant team - everyone was so helpful and friendly. Our (upgraded) suite (137) was superb with two great balconies, a huge bathroom with a great walk-in rainhead shower, fast WiFi and a really comfortable king-size bed. The main buffet restaurant served up some very good food (much of it freshly prepared at the chef-stations). We discovered some great local wines and had some of the best G&T's ever! The evening entertainment was both professional and subtle but complemented the outdoor eating environment perfectly. We weren't too impressed with some of the bui;t-up areas of Tenerife, but this hotel was stunning...
"Great staff but hotel has an identity crisis."
We stayed B&B for one week and on the whole pretty well enjoyed the time we spent there. However the hotel has a few problems: A) It sits on a fairly steep hill above the beach and although from the back of the hotel - the rear of the garden - it would only be a short zig-zag path to the coast, there isn't one. You have to go out the front and then walk down a busy road. The return UP can be exhausting especially in heat. There is a courtesy bus but it only runs twice a day. B) The internal public rooms of the hotel are empty and devoid of atmosphere and even the evening bar has little to offer except a huge TV screen and a few chairs dottted around the large cavernous room. C) Whilst breakfast buffet has all you could want (broccoli anyone') the evening buffet at 35 Euros is way too expensive - especially as one can eat at the hotel's own grill (which has to be booked in advance) AND have a glass of wine AND waiter service for a lower price. We ate once at the buffet and decided it was extremely poor value for money. We ate out of the hotel a number of times which, one presumes, is not what the hotel would want their guests to be doing. Returning at 10 p.m. we found the bar area to be lacking in atmosphere. D) It is a family hotel and despite providing a special kiddie pool with attendant sunbeds that area was always empty. The families were gathered on the Bali beds around the adult swimming area which could be a little noisier than most people looking for relaxation would prefer. E) Our garden villa was pretty good with views to the sea - and the building site directly below. There was a personal jacuzzi on the roof of the villa which we used just the once. Probably not worth the extra money. Would we come back to this hotel again' Probably not. It was just lacking something special and is probably trying to work out how it can compete with the 5 star GL hotels popping up closer to the water front.
"holiday to celebrate birthday and wedding anniversary"
Lovely hotel but a disappointing room with only sun first thing in morning and noise from traffic and very smelly so not able to sit and relax on balconyAlso typical people bagging best position of sun loungers very early in morning and chairs very close together so not much privacy. Very long and very steep walk to beach and restaurants
