The Ritz Carlton Abama is a gorgeous terracotta citadel on the unspoilt western coast of Tenerife, resplendent in acres of beautiful botanical gardens with stunning sweeping views over the ocean and the neighbouring island of La Gomera.

In the main hotel or ‘Citadel’ you will find spacious rooms and suites with large balconies and beautiful marble bathrooms overlooking swimming pools, palm groves and the golf course. If you require more privacy, rooms and suites can be found in the separate and more exclusive ‘Villas’ area. Recently launched in row 4 are 22 sets of interconnecting Villa Deluxe Rooms and Villa One-Bedroom Family Suites (four in total). Throughout the resort there are new family rooms and two-bedroom  family suites all of which are ideal for parents with children.

The new ‘Villa Club’ is a semi-private concept with rooms and suites in a more secluded setting to suit couples, families or groups. These accommodation are in rows down towards the sea and you can check-in contactlessly. The Villa Club guests share a pool that is only for the exclusive use of each building and enjoy special privileges such as an a la carte breakfast in El Mirador restaurant, Lounge Access (beer and wine available for those in the adults-only villa row), complimentary amenities by the pool such as canapes, soft drinks, juices and smoothies and a sunset experience with Tapas and alcoholic drinks in the evening.

The hotel’s comprehensive facilities really set it apart from others in Tenerife. It has a whole host of delicious restaurants, a tennis club with a tennis academy and an amazing 2,500m2 spa with ESPA and Spanish SEPAI products. An adult-only swimming pool by El Mirador creates the perfect place to relax.

Restaurants at the hotel are really special including Michelin-star Japanese fusion Kabuki combines absolutely state of the art design with an outdoor terrace that is perfect for pre-dinner drink and offers panoramic ocean views and out to neighbouring Canary Islands. The Spanish TXOKO has fashionable interiors and a Basque cuisine.

The breath-taking golf course and golf academy are sure to impress even the most discerning golfer, whilst the secluded sandy beach, set against looming slate cliffs, is a dream with its imported golden sand and fantastic beach club, restaurant and bar.

Children will love spending time in the Ritz Kids’ Club, which is one of the largest in Europe, with its eight diverse zones including a secure garden with a lawn for outdoor play and a new playground.

There didn’t seem to be so many staff

The hotel seems a bit shabbier than in previous years. There didn’t seem to be so many staff. We were disappointed that they were holding a tennis tournament so we couldn’t use any of the courts.

We had a very lovely and pleasant stay, room was great, food was excellent.

However we were disappointed with the amount of refurbishment that was taking place.

The main pool was cordoned off and the main restaurant was closed.

We understand work needs to happen some time but think we should have been informed.

This has to be the best hotel not only in the canaries but in Europe. The Tagor Suites make it a little bit of heaven. The restaurants, all a la carte, are fantastic. If you haven’t been, you need to. This is canaries with style.

The hotel became increasingly crowded. On our way to breakfast, we found families staking out their pool places 1-2 hours before the pool opened. We have never seen this before. Some of the restaurants were closed causing those that were open to be over crowded and loud with very slow service. We had a consistent ant problem in our rooms with a steady stream of ants on the floors and in the bathroom and on the counters by the sinks. Additionally, there was a strong sewage smell outside our block of rooms. Every time we entered and left we noticed this awful smell. We were please to see that they were installing new playground equipment. However, our children were not able to use this playground equipment because it took them more than our 8 night stay to install it and paint it, etc.

Pleasant staff…

Our fifth trip to Abama and whilst it is still a great hotel, there were some chinks showing through in terms of reduced staffing and closure of restaurants on selected nights. Staff still very pleasant and supportive.

The club level makes the holiday something special. While the half board is no longer such good value the food is excellent, the staff at the club are superb and the club level amenities are second to none

Always a lovely experience here. Beautiful hotel and surroundings. Some amazing people working there e.g. George, Sergio and the staff at the main pool restaurant. October half term was extremely busy, and service at the beach restarant wasn’t great.
Love the refurb in The Mirador.
Overall had a wonderful time.

Have stayed at abama several times.
The room 790 had a number of poorly maintained fittings and items which has is not their normal standard.
At breakfast details were missing such as no spoons available no labelling of different milks.
These matters are disappointing but would not stop us from returning!

Excellent hotel. We got upgraded to a suite which was amazing. The restaurants were fantastic. The kids club was spacious and had toys and fun for all ages. The customer service was 5* and the beach was lovely. They even had a little train which took us to the beach and back (a real hit with out 1 year old). The pools were beautiful – the only downside was that the floor was destroyed which made it very rough for our little one as he was not a confident walker yet (they said that works were going to start next month to fix it). A perfect first family holiday!

Lovely hotel and the staff were superb…

Lovely hotel and the staff were superb. Having access to your own buggy was great.  There seemed to be too few restaurants open or available, so in view of the situation of the hotel, it meant having to use the available restaurants 2 or 3 times.  Also thought that having already paid premium rates, the charge of eur 25 per hour to keep your room after 12 was a bit rich. They also managed to get our bill wrong, three times.

Excellent service, great hotel…

We had an excellent holiday at The Ritz Carlton, Abama. Firstly the staff are mostly exceptional, great service, great with the children, made to feel very welcome. The accommodation is very good the bedrooms are fantastic. There are a few areas that look a little tired but nothing a few hours wouldn`t sort out, for example a few electric wires on display and the concrete around the edge of the pool is a little worn. However, the holiday was great, the hotel was excellent, the food was excellent quality and the people staying at the hotel were all very nice. we would love to go back again to the Ritz Carlton.
