The Ritz-Carlton Abama Resort - Including Tagor' Villas

The Ritz-Carlton Abama Resort is an impressive resort, with superb facilities for all the family…

7 nights from £1,188

Description & Location

The Ritz-Carlton Abama Resort is located on the sunnier west coast, close to the village of Playa San Juan. 30 minutes drive from the south Tenerife airport. Instantly luxurious, designed in a red hue Moorish style. Set amongst extensive tropical gardens, leading down to its own golden sand cove beach (funicular lift takes you down the final stage to beach level).


A total of 321 rooms and suites in the main Citadel building. All spacious with a choice of tropical garden views or  sea facing aspect, albeit from a distance. Each room is tastefully decorated, in a bright, but restful modern style.

For those travelling with children, we particularly suggest the extra comfort and space offered by the Junior Suites with their integrated living space. The hotel also has numerous interconnecting Deluxe Rooms. These can usually be confirmed at time of booking, although early booking is suggested – especially at peak school holiday periods.

In addition there are 148 Villa Rooms and Suites. Set in 4 rows in the garden leading down towards the sea, with each row having its own shared swimming pool.

The Tagor Villas are in a separate exclusive terrace area reserved for adults only – no children under 18 – with their own shared swimming pool and your own buggy to drive around the resort. They include soft drinks/beer during the day, up to 4 snack food presentations around the pool and a voucher for VIP lounge on airport departure from Tenerife (South).

Facilities and Activities

Facilities include numerous speciality restaurants in differing locations spread throughout the resort (see note below)
Several swimming pools – Some are adult only
Excellent sporting facilities, including tennis
Spa and its own championship golf course.
The kids club caters for children from 4-12  years
Freelance babysitting can be arranged, at extra cost
Children under 4 years can go into the club if accompanied by adult or babysitter


The Ritz-Carlton Abama Resort has excellent facilities, spread over the extensive 400 acre estate. There is quite a steep hill leading down from the main hotel past the manicured gardens to the beach cliff top, but for the less energetic a regular buggy service or resort train operates on demand. An impressive resort, with superb facilities for all the family.

When half board has been pre-booked, this will be on limited  to a few of the restaurants with a credit for dining in the others should you desire. A few of the restaurants will be adult only and/or require those wishing to dine as a family to eat earlier.

The resort has fantastic leisure facilities with championship golf course adjacent, and an extremely well equipped tennis club. Lessons for both can be prearranged on request. The resort is in a tropical estate, fringed by banana plantations. There is a small village with some restaurant options within a 10 minute drive, or the more developed areas of south Tenerife are just 15 minutes away. Tenerife is an interesting island to explore, with vastly different scenic attractions, so we would suggest car hire to add to your flexibility.

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers.

Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.

For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May – June level and about 50% more in Asia.

For the Mediterranean & Canary IslandsCaribbeanArabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.

*For Sri Lanka and Far East we show a per person per night hotel guide, excluding air fare, as arrangements tend to be individually tailored multi-centre itineraries.
