Fodor's Expert Review Bahía del Duque

Av. de Bruselas s/n, Adeje, Canary Islands, 38660, Spain Fodor's Choice

Built to resemble a 19th-century Canarian village—complete with a bell tower, Italianate villas, and leafy courtyards—this sprawling luxury resort takes in eight restaurants, five swimming pools, a 24-hour gym, and two tennis courts. In other words, you could stay here for weeks and never want to leave the premises, especially after seeing the rooms, which exude old-world comfort yet feature modern bells and whistles like Nespresso machines. The grounds empty out onto the (public) Playa del Duque and bustling boardwalk, which comes alive at sunset.
