Hacienda Del Conde is a superb hotel, beautifully designed and laid out over a number of levels. A bar that transforms to a church is an interesting feature for weddings!
Fundamentally it’s a golf resort & be prepared to play 2nd fiddle if a tournament is on and you’re not part of it.
However, the rooms are spacious and clean. The walk in wardrobe was very welcome. The food is very good - loved the buffet - and the staff are friendly and attentive. The reception staff are a little more conservative in their service.
There are lovely terraces for sitting or lying around the pools. The views are lovely. Nearby the local town is well worth a 15min walk to for the bars, cafes and restaurants. Also the circular walk around the course. A local bus route gives you cheap access to visit other towns; Garachico and as far as Puerto de la Cruz. El Drago.....hmmmmm?
Negative: it’s a long drive from the airport although it’s a spectacular vista as you drop down over the mountain.
The weather is unreliable &, as it’s the north coast, very windy. Not worth the 4hr flight in Dec but worth another visit at another time of year. More
