Our Review

A wonderful family hotel with its own lovely beach

Managed and run by Ritz-Carlton, who know a thing or two about luxury and good service, the Abama hotel is just 25 minutes drive from the airport with stunning views across the sea to the island of La Gomera.  And like all our favourite family hotels this one is designed for adults to enjoy themselves as well as children so you don’t need to give up on your luxurious just so your youngsters are well looked after.

The location is all important in Tenerife and the Abama has a great one well away from the concrete jungle of hotels many people associate with Tenerife. The hotel’s luxurious rooms and suites each have a private terrace or balcony which is idea if you have younger children who still need a mid day nap and you don’t want to miss out on some precious sunbathing time.  The main rooms for families are based in the Citadel.  These are the Deluxe rooms (many of which interconnect), the Junior Suites and 1 Bedroomed suites.  Or for a bit more privacy the Villas are a great option.  These are hidden among the botanic gardens tumbling down from the main citadel towards the ocean.  As well as enjoying all the amenities of the citadel rooms, each row of villas has access to an exclusive pool, wonderful ocean views from its top floor rooms, a high, pitched ceiling with exposed beams and a four-poster bed. Full room service and transport to any other part of the complex are available at your request.

And for older children, or fathers who get itchy feet, the hotel is a golfers paradise with driving range, golf academy and a challenging par 72, 18-hole course.  Or for tennis enthusiasts, the Abama provides expert tuition in the form of the Sanchez Casal Tennis Academy but if you’re in search of a more relaxing stay, take to the water in one of the seven heated swimming pools (including a designated adults-only pool), enjoy sunbathing on the secluded beach with its golden sands or simply unwind in the ABAMA Spa, with its 14 treatment rooms and, bizarrely enough, a snow cabin.  Having an adults pool is always a winner because you as parents know that any couples staying at the hotel have other places to escape to allowing your children to enjoy their pool time without any dark looks from fellow guests (within reason of course).  And for parents not keen to walk between the hotel and the beach they even kindly lay on a chauffeur driven buggy.

Not forgetting one of the most important parts of any holiday the hotel has a rather greedy ten restaurants to ensure every taste is catered for.  Including Japanese, Argentinean and Italian inspired treats, as well as a specialist seafood restaurant. They even have  M.B, a one Michelin Star restaurant, creating culinary delights which may even encourage you to do a few laps of the pool to build up an appetite before you go!

Pilates, sala classes and Zumba!  Nearby there is deep sea fishing next to La Gomera, treking, mountain biking, or exploring the island with Abama’s great island guides

I’M BORED (…& for children)… 7 heated pools.  No charges for sunloungers by pool or beach.  At the pools there are floats etc for children and bucket and spades by beach.  For parents with younger children there are nappy changing tables in pool loos .  For older children the tennis academy has 11 courts.  Whilst out and about Tenerife has some great  Whale watching year round – one of only 3 countries in the world that can do this.
