Hotel Vincci Tenerife Golf 2019 Review

The Hotel Vincci Tenerife Golf Review – this hotel is just 5km from Tenerife South airport with the hotel vincci tenerife costa adeje offering a restaurant, all-inclusive, pools, Sundeck, rooms, reception, entertainment. Conveniently located for shops, cafes, restaurants, supermarket and bars, seafront location, Spa & only 100 yards from Tenerife’s Golf del Sur Golf Course.

How to find the Hotel Vincci Tenerife Golf

To find the hotel from the Tenerife South airport (TFS), it only takes between 11 -15 minutes by car.

Public transport options are also available from the airport terminals taking approximately 34 minutes.

The quickest route by car is to follow the TF-1 to the TF-645, then onwards to the TF-65 until you reach your destination.

Taxi charges from TFS airport is approx 12 – 15 euros only (Prices correct @ 2019)

Hotel Vincci Tenerife Golf Reception

As we arrived at the main entrance doors we got the first impressions of a good quality 4 star hotel. The facade of the hotel is impressive with floor to ceiling glass, well presented outside with Palm trees and a marble forecourt. Everything was kept scrupulously clean and well maintained, so far, so good…

As we entered the main reception we observed a large reception desk staffed by two Vincci employees. From reception you can view the outdoor swimming pool and Sundeck area through glass window panels, to the right we could see a large restaurant area.

Around the perimeter of the reception area we observed various sofas, armchairs & coffee tables. A long, cushioned seating area, lounge sofas, a pool table and bar area. This area gives the impression of a very good 4 Star Hotel. 

The Receptionist welcomed us with a friendly “hola” and booked us in very quickly and explained the hotel facilities & services. Please be aware there are no porter service available at this hotel, luckily our allocated room was located on the ground floor. Escalators assist all customers to other floors within the hotel.

We arrived just after midday so our room was not available yet, we only waited about 15 minutes for cleaning duties to be finished. 

Pools & Sundeck area 

The Vincci Tenerife Golf hotel accommodates one main swimming pool & one smaller children’s pool separated.

Around the perimeter of the wooden Sundeck we only saw enough space to hold about 40 x sunloungers and parasols. The amount of Sundeck floorspace area does not mirror the amount of rooms within the hotel. We visited in March out of season and did ask ourselves what would happen in-season? We can only imagine quite a few people extremely unhappy when not being able to secure a space for a sunlounger during their holidays.

Tenerife is known for strong winds especially along the coastal resorts, this hotel has fitted glass screens around the Sundeck areas which work well to deflect strong winds off the sea.

The sunloungers were in good condition but the cushions looked like they could have been in need of some cleaning as we observed many cushions with stains. The cushions were stored away in two small rooms, one at the rear of the sundeck and one located next to the lifeguard.

The main pool was clean but cold with no heating installed. The children’s pool was the same.

The lifeguard was on duty from 10am through to 5pm everyday and controlled the music played next to the swimming pools.

On our first day we decided to explore the pool areas after breakfast and found another Sundeck area up a set of stairs. The upper Sundeck contained double, cushioned sunbeds, its own sunloungers with cushions and an area containing Rattan sofas and chair furniture,  all under a canopy for shade. This was very useful to take a quick break from the Tenerife sun at midday.

We found this upper Sundeck area a retreat from the main, busy pool area on the ground floor. During our entire trip only a handful of people used the upper area to sunbathe and relax. If your like us and prefer a quieter, more relaxing area then this upper Sundeck is for you. There was always sunloungers available everyday during our trip so no need to keep getting up early to put your towels on a sunlounger.

Room accommodation 

We paid for a Seafacing balcony room as accommodation during our stay. When we entered our room our first impressions were not so good, especially after the good impression we had of the hotel from the main reception area.

Our room size was adequate, a king sized bed, flat screen TV, bathroom, balcony, wardrobe with safe and air conditioning, but as we looked closer we saw signs of wear and tear throughout and the whole room in serious need of some updating.

The balcony partly faced the sea so we could not complain but the patio doors were old, tatty and the curtains in need of replacing. The housekeeping was of a good standard and cleaning including new bedding, towels and toiletries replaced everyday.

The entire room in our opinion required a serious refurbishment, it looked to us as if no investment had been made in the room for atleast 10 years. 

Bathroom

The bathroom consisted of two wash hand basins set into a worktop, a toilet, a bidet and a bath with shower and glass screen and extra towels were stored away.

Once again, the bathroom looked like it could do with an update and a good refurbishment. How many hotels these days still have a bath fitted with a shower attached?

The taps were discoloured due to cleaning, all chrome fittings like the shower fittings, plugs were all discoloured but clean. The shower attachment off the bath taps took some adjusting as when we turned the shower on, the shower head shot upwards making a lot of water on the bathroom floor. For the rest of our stay we had to have showers at a half flow and lean backwards just to shower and get clean.

The colour scheme of the bathroom had a lot to be desired. It felt like we had gone back in time to the 90’s with the lime green washbasins, marble effect worktops and a strange, lime green painted toothbrush holder. 

The toilet flush system stuck when you flushed so constantly refilled which I had to fix myself. Also, there was no extraction system fitted in the bathroom so the mirrors steamed up constantly. 

Television & Wi-Fi

The LCD flat screen Television in our room had approximately 40 channels installed, however out those 40 channels we could only find three American channels of which two of those were news channels. This was disappointing as we have read many reviews online that a lot of English people stay at the hotel.

The hotel does not have Wi-Fi installed in any rooms. If you want to access Wi-Fi you need to be in the reception area and its chargeable on a weekly fee rate. We did find two PC’s at the rear of reception which charged €1 per 10 minutes of internet access.

Restaurant / Breakfast

The Restaurant area is located off reception next to a bar area and holds approximately 60 tables including various areas serving hot & cold foods, drinks, tea / coffee and a chef manned egg station.

The Restaurant serves daily breakfast from 7am – 10am, lunch from 1pm – 3pm and Dinner serving from 7pm – 10pm everyday. 

Dinner rates on a daily basis cost €39.00 for two people including drinks at your table which is billed to your room.

As we only paid for Room & Breakfast rate at the hotel we can’t comment on the Lunch or Dinner servings.

Breakfast Serving in our opinion was of a good standard. The choice on offer was varied from hot cooked items such as bacon, sausages, tomatoes, mushrooms etc. Freshly cooked eggs are available from the egg station and your choice are cooked to order by a chef. 

The Restaurant at breakfast served a multitude of different foods & drinks such as cold meats, cheeses, salads, fresh & dried fruits, cereals, nuts, yogurt, sliced breads, rolls & baguette.

We opted for on many days the cooked eggs of choice from the egg station which were very good. The omelette is cooked to order and you can request additional items such as onions, peppers, ham, mushrooms etc.

Outside the restaurant we discovered another area with tables & chairs so customers can eat breakfast in the morning Sun. Unfortunately this area is also shared with smokers so if your unfortunate like we found you can be sharing your breakfast time with people smoking on the table next to you.

In our opinion the restaurant offerings and service were a good 4 Star Hotel standard.

Local area & Facilities

One of the main reasons we choose the Vincci Tenerife Golf was the local area adjacent to the hotel. Using Tripadvisor reviews we found that the hotel was located next to a shopping parade containing many restaurants, bars, cafes, banks, shops and a Supermarket.

This shopping parade was only a few minutes walk from the hotel and was very convenient to pop out for a few snacks, eating out for dinner or just to take an evening stroll.

During our stay we found a few very nice restaurants including an excellent Indian, an Italian and a Spanish restaurant cooking a multitude of different dishes.

Prices in our opinion where similar to English restaurants, we spent on average £30 a night for dinner for two with soft drinks. 

Our Verdict / Recommendations 

During our research for a hotel located near the Tenerife South airport, on the coast and a minimum of a 4 Star rating at a decent price, the range of hotels on offer was always going to be limited.

We find it such a shame when hotels portray a great image on the internet, invest in the “front of house” & facilities but then fail miserably when it comes to the standard of the customer rooms. This hotel has a lot going for it with a good location, a great restaurant but why not invest in updating the rooms?

We are lucky that including using a discount code we managed to only pay £82.00 a night Room & Breakfast rate for our stay. If we had paid more than this rate we would have not been very happy.

We found the best price available by using various hotel comparison sites on the web. Once we had decided on the right hotel, we then search for the cheapest price available. In the end, we used Trivago as they displayed the most competitive rates, using the information displayed on Trivago we then made a note of the cheapest companies then headed over to Topcashback to bag some cashback off the final price & using a discount code.

The Luxury Beach Villa is either available by paying cash or using Hilton Honor points. If you become a Hilton Honors Silver / Gold or Diamond Member you will receive One Free Night for every Five nights (You only pay for 4 x Nights – 380k points saving 95k)

This accommodation is 150sq m / 1614 sq feet of pure luxury. From the moment you we were escorted to our door by our Personal host to the minute we entered the Villa we were simply blown away by its sheer size and luxurious look & feel.

Hallway:

Umbrellas in Glass to Ceiling Hallway

As you enter through your Security card accessed front door, you enter a light & airy hallway with floor to ceiling glass which looks out into your private rear garden. Located at the end of the hallway is an Umbrella stand & two Umbrellas. We found this amusing as were in the Sunny Maldives but to our surprise on a few occasions we actually needed those Umbrellas due to a few, short, early evening showers. Located off the Hallway this lead through to the largest Living area we have ever seen in a hotel / resort room. Off the hallway was located an amazing bathroom area, a large wardrobe area and a separate toilet.

Bathroom area:

The bathroom area consisted of two separate, freestanding marble wash hand basins, mirrors, lighting and complimentary Luxury toiletries. Quality egyptian cotton hand towels with bath towels stored underneath. Also supplied are toothbrush holders, hand tissues etc.

External Rain Fall Shower:

Off the bathroom, there were a set of sliding doors leading to a paved, patio area with the most amazing Rainfall shower. This area is part of a very private garden area with high walls around the perimeter. To shower in the open gardens is a liberating experience with only birds in the trees as your audience. The shower area is stocked with luxury, organic essential oils shower gels & shampoo / conditioner.

Bathing Pavillion:

At the rear of the Private Gardens we viewed a large, under Canopy Spa Bath officially known as the Bathing Pavilion. The bathing pavilion is surrounded by lush greenery, trees, bushes and exotic flowers. The pavilion steps up from the surrounding pathways into the largest and most luxurious spa bath we have ever seen. We later found out that you can pay for Room service to fill the bath for you including essential oils…

Wardrobe area:

The entire Beach Villa is air-conditioned throughout making it comfortable and a welcome break to cool down from the hot Maldives sun. Off the hallway we discovered a large wardrobe area separated with sliding wooden doors containing a safe. This area held lots of additional quality bed linen, towels, bathrobes, slippers and a Complimentary Conrad wicker beach bag. The wardrobe area is extremely large and easily accommodates three adults clothes and luggage. To find this wardrobe area with its own air conditioning was a great benefit, it kept our clothes cool and a relaxing area to get changed in straight from the shower.

Main Living area:

As we entered the Villa’s main living area, we were surprised to see two sofas. One a chaise lounge and the other a Sofa bed (Sleeps two). This area can be separated by a movable curtain for Privacy, excellent for children or friends / family staying with you. The BV can accommodate up to Three adults or Two adults & Two children.

Coffee / Refrigerator area:

A small alcove area off the main living area contained a small, under counter refrigerator filled with min bar sized alcoholic and a mixture of canned soft drinks. Two large, Conrad branded water bottles, carton of milk and a selection of chocolate bars. These items except the water / milk are all chargeable to your room. A Nespresso coffee maker with a large selection of complimentary coffee pods which are replenished everyday by house keeping. A 32 inch LCD TV kept us entertained during our stay with free cable TV channels. You can even order Room Service from the TV set and receive personal messages instantly. We used the free internet wi-Fi service complimentary in all rooms in the resort to watch online movies of our choice.

Patio area with loungers, Private Gardens & Pathway to Private Beach

As you exit the main living areas sliding patio doors we found ourselves stepping out onto a canopy covered patio area consisting of two, cushioned wooden sun loungers & side tables. The sliding patio doors are also opened from the garden side by swiping your room key card on the reader which was very convenient when wanting to enter your Villa from the Beach. Your private gardens are full of coconut trees, bushes and flowers in bloom. On many occasions we saw fruit bats fly between the trees and other exotic birds. We followed the pathway through the gardens to find at the end the most jaw dropping, fluffy white sandy beach and breath-taking blue lagoon awaiting us. We had finally found Paradise on earth!

Beach & Sun Loungers & Warm water blue lagoon

Private beach / Lagoon:

Our Beach Villa was located in the low 200’s. After researching previous reviews, we both agreed for us that this location on the entire Island was perfect. The low 200’s accommodation side of the island faces into a beautiful, shallow blue lagoon. It’s extremely private on this side of the island and you face towards the ocean. As you walk into the lagoon waters you feel just how warm the water really is in the Maldives. In the far distance we could see the Muraka, the first in the world, under water suite under construction.

Private Beach View – Paradise on earth.

Every Beach Villa has conveniently located at the end of your private gardens on the beach, two wooden Sun Loungers and cushions under either a thatched canopy or moveable canopy and small, side table for drinks. A waiter visits twice a day on the beach taking drink orders.

The lagoon is fairly shallow and we could easily walk for a many minutes until the water reached our shoulder height. The water is so warm and clear in the lagoon that we felt we just didn’t want to leave. We noticed on many occasions shoals of small fish swim close to the shore. As we ventured further out we noticed the most beautiful, large fish swimming past our legs. On some occasions we noticed giant Manta Rays swim past in the lagoon.

To the left along our beach, small boat excursions leave the shore to take people to local dive sites for Scuba diving. The Mandhoo Restaurant was located about five minutes walk but not in sight due to its location around the natural curve of the island. Clean beach towels were left on our Sun Loungers every morning and extra towels left in storage units along the beach. Our host visited us everyday during our stay to ensure everything was to our satisfaction and to keep us informed of special events on the island. I took advantage of the free snorkelling equipment hire during our stay and spent many hours exploring the lagoon.

Conrad Maldives Breakfast / Afternoon Tea

When staying on Rangali Island you have two restaurants to choose from everyday for your Breakfast. We used everyday during our stay the Atoll Market due to its close location to our Villa, literally 3 x mins walk. The Atoll Market serves breakfast daily from 6.00am with a wide selection of hot and cold foods for breakfast Inc sausages, bacon, various versions of cooked eggs. A chef will cook you eggs to order whatever your preference is and cook pancakes / waffles to order while you wait.

Another chef cooks to order omelette with any fillings you request, a juice bar, cold meats, jams, toast, breads, fresh fruits, yogurt etc. Waiter service shows you to your chosen table and takes your order for Tea or Coffee.

As Hilton Diamond members all our Breakfasts were completely free including free afternoon tea at the Mandhoo restaurant starting at 3pm everyday. Afternoon Tea included finger sandwiches, scones, pastries, canape’s and tea, coffees and soft drinks.

WATER VILLA REVIEW

Over Water Villa on Rangali Island Conrad Maldives Review

The Water Villa also known as the OWV – Over Water Villa accommodation is 86 sq m or 925 sq ft of pure luxury. We managed to upgrade from our Beach Villa to a Water Villa for the last night of our stay.

We paid $185 to upgrade for the one night, it was a special treat and we felt we couldn’t stay in the Maldives without trying out a Water Villa at least once. The average cost per night for this type of accommodation is around £800-£900 a night. Considering we didn’t pay out any cash for our Beach Villa, we felt paying $185 justifiable.

Unfortunately, Rangali Island is exempt from the Hilton Diamond members conditions that you will receive an upgraded room where available. I believe exceptions to this rule have been made in the past, our Tip would be to try staying here during the quieter months of the year for a better chance of bagging that elusive free upgrade.

Transportation:

After securing our night in the Water Villa via our Personal host, we were advised to get all our personal belongings together and Pack all our luggage. Our host came and found us on the Beach and advised us that someone will be calling at our BV at midday. Right on time, the doorbell rang and a very friendly member staff asked for our luggage and bags. He took everything for us to an electric buggy parked up on the path. We were asked if we’re ready to move or would be prefer later, with anticipation and excitement we were ready and promptly jump in the buggy for the short ride to our Water Villa.

It was fun to ride in the buggy and after about five minutes and lots of twists and turns down different pathways and across the bridge spanning between the two islands, we found ourselves outside our new accommodation on the quiet island.

Wooden pathway leading to the over water villa.
Walkway to Over Water Villa

We arrived and parked up at the end of the wooden walkway to the entrance of our new accommodation. Our luggage was taken into the Villa for us and an explanation given of all the new Facilities.

The Water Villa does certainly have the “Wow” factor. The main living areas are all covered in wooden panelling, you certainly get a feeling of luxury staying here. Our Villa had a large curved sofa, a glass desk facing out of a window to an amazing view of the ocean.

A section in the floor was made of glass, we stood there for at least five minutes staring at all the fish swimming under our feet.

Living area in the OWV

A nice surprise was to find awaiting us again a bottle of champagne on ice, chocolates and fruit. When we evaluated the differences between our Beach Villa to the Water Villa, we found that basic facilities were roughly the same though.

Bathroom:

The bathroom consisted of two, separate marble round bowls set onto wooden units. We got the same standard of toiletries as before. The biggest benefit was definitely the window facing towards the lagoon and the ocean facing bath.

Over Water Villa Sun Deck:

OWV Sun Deck

Now this is where we noticed the big difference between the two Villa’s we had the pleasure of staying in. When you open the sliding doors from your main living area, we were taken back by the breath-taking view out into the blue lagoon.

The sundeck on the OWV consisted of a small, plunge pool at the end of the deck. We found this luxury to cool off in the hot, Maldives sun. Steps lead down into the Lagoon from the sun deck. This was a wow factor for us, we had never imagined staying at a hotel that you can walk from your room into the ocean. We swam with fish, watched Manta Rays glide by and just relaxed in the warm waters of the lagoon.

Conrad Maldives water villa sundeck

The Sun deck contains two wooden loungers with cushions, a Sun umbrella canopy, table and chairs and the plunge pool. At night, the sun deck is lit by recessed lighting, we found it so relaxing to sit at our table with a Coffee watching the sun go down. Privacy was good at the Water Villa, our Sun deck was cordoned off to each side by a wooden walls on stilts out of the lagoon.

Our Verdict: Beach Villa vs Water Villa

Firstly, we had to pinch ourselves regularly to remind ourselves that we were lucky enough to be staying in the Maldives, let alone being able to stay in two different accommodations in a 5 Star Resort here.

The main differences between the two villas has to be the Sun deck in the Water Villa and that you are actually staying in accommodation on stilts just above and in the ocean. The Sun deck really has that extra special feel and the ocean views are just stunning.

However, if you look at the Square footage of both Villas as a comparison then the Beach Villa wins hands down. You get nearly 80% more space in the BV for your money. Plus it’s cheaper, if you pay cash then your looking at an approx difference of 40% cheaper for the BV.

We found the Facilities in both Villas similar except for the Sun deck in the OWV. Even though we loved walking down steps into the lagoon, we also loved being on an amazing beach in one minute at the end of our private garden in the BV. You do sacrifice the beach in the Water Villa.

We think most people would always choose the Water Villa over the Beach Villa. However, if you were looking for best value for your money then we would definitely say the Beach Villa was the winner due to the price per night. If you ever get the chance to stay at the Conrad Maldives in a Beach Villa, we would definitely recommend enquiring about an upgrade to a Water Villa like we did just to experience the two accommodations.

Skint Traveller Cost Breakdown:

We stayed in the Beach Villa for 7 x Nights plus upgrading to a Water Villa for 1 x night.

7 x Nights in a Conrad Rangali Island BV can be purchased for approx £3500. The standard Hilton rate for this Villa is $687 per night but you can usually find a cheaper deal using one of the many Online Travel Agents advertising on the web.

7 x Nights in a Water Villa costs approx £700 a night so nearly an additional £1400 more than a BV so nearer £5000 for a week’s stay.

We paid for 7 x nights in the Beach Villa all on Hilton Honour points for our stay. The amount of points we used came to 570,000. That is 95,000 HH points per night but if your a Hilton Honors Silver status member or above, you get 1 x night free per every 5 x Nights. So normally 665,000 points.

Every customer Staying on Rangali Island has to pay for the Seaplane Transfer to and from Male international airport. This costs an eye watering £445 each so £890 Return for us two. 

Our final bill came to £1430 including the Upgrade to the Water Villa, thats including all our food and the Seaplane Transfers. We were chuffed to only pay less than 1.5k for that package as a cash purchase cost would of been nearer £6500.

Our bill was only possible by us having Hilton Diamond status allowing us Free Breakfasts everyday and free afternoon tea. We did enquire about the cost of breakfast by cash and we were quoted £140 a day.

We strongly recommend that you acquire Hilton Gold or above status when Staying at Rangali Island to save a lot of money. Hilton Gold can be acquired for Free through taking out the Amex Platinum card. If you are interested in aquring Hilton Gold for Free, contact us and we will send you all the details.
