The hotel and its location were perfect - close to restaurants, a centrally located metro station and a variety of shops and the buzz of Barcelona life. Thanks DialAFlight.
Seamless as usual
You made it very easy and all the well timed reminders were welcome
Riley is brilliant and has all our needs covered and made sure we had an excellent trip
Best place we stayed - clean, food excellent and staff.
Elizabeth is great, really helpful
Once again Guy delivered - superb hotel in Puerto Banus. Highly recommended.
Excellent, thank you!
Reece and the team are first class, friendly professionals. Very reliable, it's why we always book with DialAFlight. Would thoroughly recommend.
Great location on the beach. Had seen reviews about noise but not a problem for us. And reasonable taxi rides into main city with lots of great shops and places to have meals and coffee breaks. Would go again.
Everything from beginning to end excellent. You actually get a courtesy call before you travel and there is always someone to take your call and answer questions
Michelle was brilliant as always!
Keep up the great work, always a pleasure having you help with our holidays and flights
As always, fantastic service. No hesitation in recommending you. Love the out of hours service too. A problem with online checking was sorted so easily.
BA wheelchair assistance is chaotic and uncoordinated. LHR probably worst airport in Europe. Wheelchair assistance in Madrid was a dream despite its enormous size.
All went to plan
Smooth efficient booking service did what we asked. Good communication, all documents set out well easy to follow. And reassuring call from Charlie when there was an air traffic problem the weekend before we left. Use great hotels and pick up companies with good quality cars and drivers. Gives us confidence.
Thanks Jordan, as usual a job well done!
Love your company and the service it offers
Overall pleased with the service , although luggage got left behind by the airline but delivered next day
Christian Burgess is the perfect travel agent. Great job by him.
We were very pleased with the service we received from DialAFlight and would use your company again. Oli was very efficient and friendly.
Thank you Nick for being there and helping with the disastrous travel day! Fingers crossed the refund comes. You enabled us to at least have a holiday and not have to completely abandon the idea. Never want to book without helpful DialAFlight ever!
Excellent as always
Departure from LGW was delayed by almost 5 hours. Not your problem I have claimed compensation - it’s has been already been approved
Really happy with DialAFlight. Stacey Rayner was excellent!!
Took all the stress out of booking our holiday.
This is a luxury five-star enclave sitting on the west coast of sun-soaked Tenerife... a year-round destination for warm weather that attracts a celebrity clientele. Its 72-hole golf course is a key attraction, as is a lovely gold-sand beach.
Star quality: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Bill Clinton, Stephen Hawking.
Vital statistics: A Moorish palace of excellence in Tenerife, set high on the cliffs, the terracotta walls of the Abama shore up the Canary island's most luxurious hotel. Surrounded by extravagant tropical gardens, you'll find nearly 500 suites and rooms amid its shady courtyards.
Its cliff-top setting means that you'll be whisked down to the beach by a cable car, but if you want to stay put there are nine swimming pools, including an infinity pool at the cliff's edge that looks out across to the island of La Gomera.
The Abama's unabashed luxury continues with two Michelin-starred restaurants. MB comes under the supervision of Martin Berasategui, with classic Spanish cuisine.
Kabuki serves Japanese in a sleek red and black interior.
Eight others include Le Mirador, which specialises in seafood and has views of the ocean.
During school holidays, the bankers of Europe descend en masse with their young children.
If you want to escape beautifully dressed euro-tots, head to the Tagor villas. The most exclusive (and expensive) of all the Abama's rooms are reserved for over-18s, with complimentary drinks and snacks.
Another refuge for adults is the Abama's 72-par golf course. Considered to be one of Spain's finest, it brings golf-minded celebrities including Bill Clinton to the resort.
Other sports facilities include seven tennis courts - one a show court with seating for 600 people.
Location report: Tucked away on the west coast, near Playa de San Juan resort, which is a 15-minute walk away along the cliff. The rest of the island requires a hire car.
Key attraction: Privacy and the sort of luxury that you normally find in only a handful of exclusive resorts around the globe. Reliable short-haul winter sun with Ritz-Carlton finesse (Asprey products in the bathrooms).
The hotel's extensive grounds are meticulously kept, and the beach has imported sand because the local stuff was considered to be a bit dark and gritty for the hotel.
In the news: Cruz and husband Bardem were at the Abama recently.
Good enough for the rest of us?: Technically, the Abama's beach is public - but access is almost impossible without going via the hotel.
