On a residential road alongside Costa Adeje Golf Course, a considerable way from the beaches and resorts of the coast. In splendid isolation, expect to drive to get anywhere for shopping, restaurants and nightlife. The seafood and tapas restaurants of La Caleta are a €10 return taxi ride away.
Twenty eight luxury villas are packed to the romantic rafters with a cornucopia of features. Each villa is individually themed and decorated in Out of Africa style with animal prints, chunky antique wooden furniture, stone mosaics, dreamy canopies and giant ceramic pots. From the one bedroom Duchess Villas to the three bedroom, three bathroom Imperial Villas, these amazing spaces ooze character and individuality. Standard extras include a king sized bed, free WiFi, large terraces and a private, heated plunge pool.
The hotel reception is reached via a wooden footbridge over a pool set into wooden decking. In contrast to the feature-filled villas, the Jardín restaurant is elegant simplicity in white, with a wall of mosaic-etched glass and giant bayonet lampshades in a low cluster in the centre of the room.
Eating and drinking
Buffet style breakfast is served in the Jardín restaurant, or you can have it brought to your villa for a supplement of €15. A la carte dinner is gourmet cooking by chef Victor Rocha but to my mind the menu is limited, overpriced and quantities are small. The down side to this is that dining out requires a drive or a taxi to La Caleta or into Costa Adeje.
There’s a stunning infinity pool set within glorious gardens, but most people prefer to spend much of their time on their own terraces. A dreamy Asian-themed spa has intimate couple’s treatments and you can be wrapped and exfoliated in chocolate or seaweed.
The service matches the villas – first class.
