Mayor visits works at GF Victoria hotel


The Adeje mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga led a team from the Adeje council on a visit to see work in progress at the GF Victoria hotel site. The director of the GF hotel chain, Victoria López, was on hand, with other executives, to show the visitors around and emphasis how the hotel would add to the prestige of the Costa Adeje destination.

According to López the hotel will offer a different kind of experience where, she said, “clients can discover new ways to enjoy their leisure time”. And it is hoped that the hotel will be open to those clients by the end of this year.

The hotel is promising an excellent family stay with zones designed very specifically with children in mind. But the hotel has also made sure it has areas for young people of different ages and interests from crèche options to tree houses, underground caves, and zip-line adventures in store for young visitors. The idea is, says López, that there are particular activities for different groups, but all in the one hotel, with adult needs also catered for with spas and detox diets on the menu. There are even surf lessons for those who wish to learn the art of the wave without having to leave the hotel.

The GF Victoria will have 242 luxury suites, the smallest including a bedroom with bathroom en suite, a living room, also with bathroom and a mini kitchen, and all suites will have terraces with sea views. There will also be an adults-only section offering extra peace and privacy, with a spa, nudist zone and more.

One of the other attractions for adults will be a pool seven floors up, hanging outside the building and with glass walls and bottom. López explained that the clients “will feel like that are hanging in the air and experiencing an incredible view of Las Américas beach and beyond to La Gomera”.

The other hotels in the GF chain in Tenerife are the GF Gran Costa Adeje, the GF Isabel, the GF Fañabe and the GF Noelia in Puerto de la Cruz.

Adrián hotel represetatives at Fitur

Daniel Adrián, one of the people responsible for the Adrián Hotels chain, has confirmed that the hotel Colón Guanahaní, in Costa Adeje, is to become an ‘adults only’ hotel.
Adrián confirmed the news at the Spanish Tourism Trade Fair, Fitur, in Madrid, earlier today. He said that the four-star establishment would close from May to July to allow renovations and some changes to take place to adapt to the new concept, adding that families and in particular children, were still more than welcome in the chain’s other hotel in the borough the Hotel Roca Nivaria.
Looking back over 2013, Adrián said “2013 was a record year, and our main markets – the English, German, Belgian and Russians, increased numbers in the summer. Regarding the national market, Adrián hotels deals with a small number of clients and that has remained steady. Looking at 2014 we expect the figures to remain positive. However we have to always be aware that the future isn’t guaranteed and must be aware and not rest on our laurels because trends can change overnight”, he added.
Referring to low prices in other destinations, Daniel Adrián said they couldn’t compete with some cheaper destinations given the low cost labour availability in some countries, “that’s why we can compete in terms of quality of the product and not just in terms of the hotels but in terms of the overall quality of the tourist destination. There is still a lot to do”, he said.
The chain of hotels he represents offers “a ramblers programme and we also develop excursions around the island. We don’t just sell sun and beach, we sell much more as the interiors, the walks such as the Barranco del Infierno are spectacular”.
