Playa Real Resort
Away from the bustling streets of Costa Adeje sits this affordable, family-friendly hotel. The action centres around two generous sized pool areas and a multi sports court. As far as first impressions go, its orange and white exterior is characteristic of the Mediterranean, much like its in-room decor.
Its All Inclusive status allows guests to flit between a buffet eatery and an a la carte alongside a helping of bars when you want to indulge. The front desk is open 24 hours with staff going above and beyond to make sure your holiday is hassle free.
Three room options
Guests staying here can choose from one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments alongside junior suites – the main difference being the suites don’t come with a kitchenette. Sleeping up to a maximum of six guests, Playa Real Resort encourages you to bring the whole family along thanks to its spacious well-equipped offerings.
Junior options can be found in the main building and come with pool views, while all stays have a lounge area made for socialising, a balcony from which you can enjoy the island’s year-round heat as well as air conditioning to make sure those warm nights are as bearable as possible.

An action-packed base
The hotel’s duo of pool areas offer ample space with a wide terrace filled with an array of sunloungers. In the middle of the water you’ll find a thatched roof bar with easy access from the water, while its surrounding of palms shows off the island’s tropics. Kids won’t be left twiddling their thumbs either with three pools ideal for paddling. Among this small trio you’ll find a splashpark where tiny slides and play fountains provide endless fun.
The entertainment staff are always on hand to make sure everyone is in the holiday mood. There are plenty of organised activities which you are encouraged to take part in, or if you’d prefer to stay active on your own schedule, you can hit its tennis courts whenever. The onsite gym takes care of those early morning cardio sessions, but whatever you do don’t forget to squeeze in a trip to the spa where Turkish bath treatments and a whirlpool will leave you feeling renewed.
If you’re craving low-key days in Tenerife, then this hotel’s tranquil base is perfect for toned-down sunbathing sessions away from the resort’s hustle and bustle. However, it’s still close enough to the centre when you want to see what’s going on in your surroundings.
Best of all, the golden sands of Playa Fañabe Beach are calling your name. Just 800 metres from your hotel, you could be bathing in the Atlantic in no time. From here, you can also enjoy some fantastic attractions with the extraordinary lunar delights of Teide National Park and the zoological park Loro Parque, which houses the largest penguinarium in the world, within day-trip distance.
