Ideally situated in the heart of the calm neighbourhood of Duque beach, the Dreamplace Gran Tacande is a beautiful hotel sumptuously decorated and with an exclusive ambience as well as an impeccable service. It is a perfect destination for couples looking for a well deserved rest. One of our favourites.
In the south of Tenerife, on the oceanfront, close to the new 'Urbanizacion Playas del Duque' development, less than 1 mile away from Costa Adeje and from the pleasure Colon Port and just a few miles from the bulk of the islland's golf courses. About 30 minutes away from the Tenerife Sur Airport, the resort is located 12.5 miles away. The hotel is about 50 miles away from Santa Cruz of Tenerife, the capital of the island.
Tacande is the name of a volcanic black stone that has helped for the construction of the Dreamplace Gran Tacande, member of the group Dreamplace Hotels and Resorts. The use of this natural material gives the building an attarctiveappearance which differs from the concrete used so often in Tenerife. The decoration looks is bright and consists of Gaucho patterns, the native residents of the Island. Holistic and good quality, the spa Vitanova, with a surface of 24,748 feetē, offers numerous services of relaxation therapies using products from well-known brands such as Thalgo, L'Oréal or Matispa. Lest we forget about the giant bubbling bath, sauna and hammam! There is also a thermal circuit that leads you out to the different pools: one at 27°C, one at 34°C (with hydrotherapy), one at 38°C for relaxation and one at 10°C for strengthening the body.
For family, there are 35 connecting rooms; very practical for the couples with children.
The Dreamplace Gran Tacande is a 4 unit building of 5 to 7 levels admirable fitted out and decorated, enjoying a Canarian architecture, coloured in pastel notes, adorned with traditional wooden balconies. The building that could welcome 250 guests blows off an undeniable charm. Each building has its own style. The all-present vegetation borders harmoniously the three sea water pools (open from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM), including a pool heated at 26°C with an island accessible by a centered wood bridge. You will slowly come down to the water, as you were on the beach. The showers, sunshades and the beach chairs are sufficient for all the clients, who will get a glimpse of a few wildlife green parrots twirling between the trees. The children have also a small pool reserved specially for them, and of course a bubbling bath and a giant chess board game for fun. Richness of flowers, fountains and waterfalls fortify the sensation of harmony, a haven of tranquility, a true small paradise.

The main buffet restaurant that could welcome up to 350 guests serves breakfats from 7:00 AM to 10:30 AM and dinner from 7:00 PM to 10:30 PM. The food is worthy of a 5* hotel, various and very well displayed. You will be very pleased with the spots dedicated to the oil, the bread, to the fruits, to the pastry, to the spots dedicated for glasses, for salads and please don't forget about a richness of sauces of all kind. It's hard to resist to these appetizing arrangements! The meat lovers will choose between beef, pork or chicken, along with the traditional Canarian potatoes! Of course, all these foods are cooked in front of you!

In the evening, the ā la carte Bocoy restaurant only serves dinner in a creative Canarian gastronomy. For ending the evening, you can enjoy the lobby bar in a piano bar atmosphere, animated by a French pianist David.
Cross over the street and you're already on the Duque Beach, a beach hard to access and then more or less private. Guests arriving via boat from neighbouring Fanabe Beach must sail around the rocks of a gorgeous private villa which leads to a private lagoon protected from breaking waves. The black sand beach includes pergolas, beach chairs and showers (Ģ2 per person). The sidewalk is lined by bars, restaurants and small shops bringing a little animation to the area. The building is supervised and even offers a nursery.
