The hotel is named after the location – La Plantación del Sur (The Plantation of the South) - where agricultural activities in the form of a banana plantation dominated the area for 200 years, prior to the growth of this fabulous resort called Costa Adeje. The manor house was actually the current building of the hotel, and when Vincci Selección La Plantación del Sur was built, several features of the former house and the green area surrounding it were preserved.

Getting There

Vincci Selección La Plantación del Sur is located between La Caleta Beach and Playa del Duque, just 20 minutes from Reina Sofia South Airport (about 20 km), and close to the best centres for shopping, night entertainment and nature activities. The hotel is about 60km away from the North Airport (Los Rodeos).

It is easily accessible by bus (line 343) and car. If going by car, you should take the Autopista del Sur TF-1 (South Highway) towards Los Cristianos and Adeje, then take exit 78 (La Caleta). From there just follow the indications to the hotel. There are quite a few Cheap Car Hire companies at both airports, and you can book your car online or directly with your travel agent.

The best option, however, is to take a taxi to the hotel. It costs about €30 from the South Airport and at the hotel, the reception could indicate a few options for local car hire.

Reserving your room at the hotel

Final Comments from the Authors

We had the chance to take a tour of the Vincci Selección La Plantación del Sur, led by the sympathetic manager of the hotel, and we can confirm everything that we read and more about the place.

Everything in the property is upmarket, from the furniture in every room to the services provided in general. The attention to detail is remarkable and the scenery amazing. If you have a clear day, you can definitely enjoy a beautiful sunset. The favourable weather on the south of the island (most days of the year it is sunny and even during winter it is not unusual for it to reach 25 degrees) also contributes to the hotel being one of the busiest on the island.

The beautiful views of Vincci Selección La Plantación del Sur for sure are an attractive for the guests

It´s not a mere coincidence that Vincci Selección La Plantación del Sur is considered to be one of the best hotels in the “Small Luxury Hotels” collection and by Tui, one of the most respectable travel and leisure companies worldwide.

For sure this is a hotel that we at Tenerife Travel Secrets recommend to our visitors without any hesitation for relaxing holidays on the island.
