All arrangements went smoothly - thank you Jamal.
Excellent as usual.
Fabulous service from Niall. Friendly and efficient as always
Great service, thanks again
Great holiday recommendations and service from team
Warren absolutely hit the brief. The holiday completely exceeded our expectations. Will most definitely be booking with you again.
Thanks Shaun - another lovely holiday
Brilliant service as usual..
Tristan was very helpful and friendly, I would certainly book flights with you again.
I felt almost guilty for my return flight being on time. Snow on Friday 10th March delayed the Birmingham flight by 8 hours and many others similarly!
Absolutely 5 star. Thanks Rudi
Flown with you many times over many years. Thanks once again for a great trip
Alfie sorted out a lovely hotel for me in Puerto de Cruz....it was in a super location. The hotel did not provide any food but the area had loads of bars and cafes. The hotel in Costa Adeje was where I stayed last year and its location is also fantastic and the staff there are really lovely and helpful.
Thanks to Glen who planned my holiday - everything went smoothly as planned
Excellent in every way
First class service from Elizabeth.
Very good appointment of the apartment over looking the sea. Hotel food not as good as last year and the villas are in need of refurbishment which they are doing.
Sean was amazing, so helpful. As always, a pleasure to talk with him.
Zoe Lane is always brilliant
First class as usual
Last minute booking. Excellent all round.
Many thanks again to Donovan and staff for all your help in booking our flight and hotel. We had a really fantastic time in Tenerife and look forward to going back again.
All extremely helpful and very polite throughout
Excellent as usual. And special thanks to Kylie for rearranging a flight very last minute
The food in the hotel was absolutely great. Such a huge range ro choose from. The drinks were very disappointing for an all inclusive, only local brands which tasted horrible and cheap. The only decent drink was their Sangria.
Noah was very helpful and knowledgeable
I had issues when checking in online to allow our group of four to sit together.
From first phone call to every arrangement requested. Everything happened perfectly with Sean and Oliver guiding the process. Thank you for making it happen and giving me assurance when concerned, you are brilliant!
Big thanks once again to Jack and his team. Five star service - wouldn't book anywhere else.
Always a great service from Samuel
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.
