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.
Would have given 5 stars but I am in agreement that it is in need of refurbishment and am sure it will look like a 5 star hotel when done as I have heard it is due this coming year, to be updated. The staff were very friendly and the food was good. Would have liked more rock and roll but that is just my preference. The pool has been refurbished and looks brilliant. The hotel is well situated and is handy for the beach and shops.

This hotel is absolutely one of the best hotel I have ever been in and l do travel a lot and seen a few hotels!!
Wonderfully helpful ,friendly and smiling staff everywhere you go, beautiful surroundings, luxurious rooms and great facilities are some of the good things about this hotel.
Close to promenade to explore the area. The sandy beach just outside the hotel is very convenient too.
Great place to have a holiday in .
My husband and I had booked a Duchess Villa , which is a one bedded private villa with its on small pool. This was an important break for me as I was frazzled and needed a real rest.
At check in , we were advised that as an Elite Expedia customer, we had been upgraded to a Majestic Villa. I was very impressed. The Villa was breaktaking. Two bedrooms,huge terrace, lovely pool. Very secluded and although there is some traffic noise, it was not in the least intrusive. The sea and mountain views are lovely and the whole hotel is imbued with a feeling of calm serenity. The hotel restaurant was lovely and the food good. The hotel is located around a 30 minute walk from La Caleta and its uphill all the way back but taxis are plentiful and cheap, so it's not an issue. As a seasoned traveller, I can honestly say that this was a perfect holiday for me and we will return.
We had a great stay at Las Dalias, the food was excellent and the service superb, the staff work very hard, the drinks were top notch with everything you can imagine included. We opted for a basic room, which was all we needed for a short stay, the room, with a balcony overlooking the road, was clean, comfortable and functional, beds very roomy and comfortable, a TV (which we didn't use) a fridge, safe, large wardrobe and spacious bathroom with bath, shower, hairdryer, toilet and bidet. There are plenty of sun beds and a lovely adults only area with a large jacuzzi and canopied sun loungers. Would definitely visit again.

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.
