In many ways the La Plantación del Sur in Costa Adeje is the perfect hotel for a winter sun break - relaxed, comfortable, quiet, close enough but far enough from a beach. But worthy of 5 Stars?
Location - good but a stiff walk up the hill at the end of a hard day's sunbathing! A bus or shuttle is available. The only major point is that the location means you will probably be restricted to the hotel restaurants in the evening - we did not feel like a longish walk there and back. 6/10
Food - The breakfast and supper buffet has plenty of good food on offer, you will never go hungry. However if you want fine dining this may not be the place for you. In our opinion the hotel might be better to offer fewer choices at a higher standard. 7/10
Staff - excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Their approach led to a very relaxed atmosphere. 10/10
Room Comfort/Cleanliness - very good bathroom, comfortable bed, a good tv with a range of channels. The only downside was a slightly irregular pattern to the way the room was tidied/cleaned. 8/10
Overall - a nice place to stay but not really worthy of 5 Stars. We would go again for the relaxed atmosphere but with 4 Star expectations, not 5.
location very good for shops, beach, nightlife and general amenities. Pool area a little shaded at different times of the day but still good area if you do the sad sunbed dash (brits are the worse now ?)and staff. access for beach very easy and top gate to main facilities nightlife. Rooms clean and all utilities needed to self cater, nice big fridge with hob, oven, microwave in my studio.
Had a free upgrade
However people around were unfriendly
Nice hotel lovely views and balcony
I wouldn't stay here as a single traveller but great for couples and families
Hotel complex is very big you almost get lost
I wouldnt be rushing back to this hotel but it was just good not fantastic compared to many we have stayed in
Overall a good trip
Being an adults-only hotel, this was very quiet and peaceful. There was entertainment every evening, but don't expect party, party. Breakfasts are great, varied and satisfying. The evening buffet is alright, but the food and service in the Pergola restaurant on site is well worth the extra. Lots of good restaurants within easy reach along the nearby promenade and close to the beach.
A good time was had by all, good food, plenty of sunshine and cheap drinking. Happy hour just before the quality entertainment at the hotel is a great feature. 95% of the staff are very friendly and helpful making you feel good about yourself on holiday.
The northern extension of Playa de las Americas, Costa Adeje’s main attraction is the Puerto Colón marina from where there are numerous boat excursions and water sports. Nightlife is quiet and the resort’s championship golf course is one of the best in the Canary Islands. Just inland is the relatively unspoiled village of Adeje and, near here, the Barranco del Infierno (Hell’s Gorge), a picturesque lush ravine, very popular with walkers.
