The Melia Hacienda del Conde is located in the north west of the island close to Garachico – this is the unspoiled more mountainous part of Tenerife 69kms from Tenerife South airport, the transfer would take around 75 minutes. Car hire is not required, as you have such a complete resort. However, we would recommend visiting the small town of Garachico, which is a gorgeous seaside Canarian town with lots of character. Also, you can walk from the hotel to the small seaside village of Buenavista and sample the cakes in the famous cake shop and enjoy the special views there.

The Seve Ballesteros golf course on the Melia resort called Buenavista, is a real test and a hidden gem, which you would generally only play if staying at the resort. Ocean and mountain views are prevalent at the resort in all directions.

The hotel is an adult only, boutique property, which has a special VIP product which one can select in advance called the LEVEL, which offers a whole array of special food & drink inclusions and private areas on the resort, such as your own breakfast venue at Salazar. The Spa at the Melia Hacienda del Conde is first class and would rival any in the Canaries and the sun terrace and pool areas are superb with amazing views.

All in all, this is a fascinating holiday venue and one which will provide customers with the ultimate secluded and peaceful golf and leisure holiday. The bedrooms are large, well-appointed and spacious at 55 square metres minimum, they even have walk in dressing rooms.

Directors tip –  Choose the LEVEL if you enjoy extra inclusions and the best sea views rooms with more privacy. If you love playing golf every day ask us for an unlimited golf deal!

      There are 117 bedrooms, golf course, practice ground, golf academy, clubhouse with restaurant, pro-shop, Seve Wall of Fame, Shuttle to golf club, 2 lagoon style infinity pools, solariums with sunbeds. The LEVEL Solarium, Spa with 8 treatment rooms, hydromassage pool, heated indoor pool, variety of expert massage treatments, sauna, jacuzzi & Turkish bath, fully equipped gym. 2 Evening restaurants including Salazar a la carte, 24 hour room service, pool bar & lobby bar.

      The LEVEL VIP Lounge.

      The YHI Spa has exceptional amenities and there are some superb massage treatments on offer.

      The rooms are incredibly spacious at 55 square metres, we would highly recommend opting for Golf View, or Sea View Melia rooms which are situated on higher floors and offer great vistas. We would also highly recommend the ocean view rooms on the VIP floor called the LEVEL, which gives the customer some very special extra inclusions and privacy in the resort, the rooms also have the very best sea views. If you would like a little more space then book the junior suites. The rooms have air conditioning, balcony or terrace, mini-bar, 2 flat screen TVs with satellite TV, sitting area with sofa, walk-in closet, laptop safe, bathroom with shower and bath. There are 117 rooms in total.

      The Buenavista course was designed by Seve Ballesteros and is thought by many to be his very best layout. The course is long off the back tees at 6,700 yards.  Nestled between the mountains and the ocean Buenavista is a real gem of a golf course. Scenic throughout, there are magnificent vistas of the sea and rugged landscape inland – the back nine has some stunning holes close and alongside the ocean. Notably holes 10.13, & 14 -17. There are, as is the case with other Seve designs… 6 par threes, 6 par fours and 6 par fives. This gives the course plenty of variety throughout and the chance to make a good score. Melia have invested heavily in the golf course and it is in 2017 in the best condition it has ever been. Buggy hire is not included as the course is very walkable – the front nine are more hilly than the back nine. It is notable that for the most part, it is only hotel residents who play Buenavista, so the course is relatively quiet compared to those in the south of Tenerife.

      Just got back from a lovely holiday for which many thanks!

      Flight good, room in hotel great (606) and hotel staff, service, friendliness etc lovely.

      Local restaurants v good and we spent a couple of delightful lunches / walks in the mountains 20 mins away.

      We ended up not playing much golf - has become a bit of a beginners course and v slow (compared to my visit 5 years ago) and greens have fungus, but the layout as you know is lovely and we enjoyed the holes we played (one delightful evening we ‘cut in’ (carefully!) and played 12 holes by the sea)

      Frankly not playing much was no big deal as we loved our break so much.

      Thanks again!

      I imagine that you will have heard already glowing reports of our trip

      The course as you know is excellent and remains interesting even after the fifth round. Helped of course by great weather and having it almost to ourselves.  The food and warmth of the staff in the clubhouse is superb. The sea view junior suites are great as is the rest of the hotel

      We had very helpful suggestions from Alan and Kirstine for restaurants as well as from yourself - again, all excellent

      Thank you for organising such an fun trip

      With very best wishes for the NewYear

       by Mike and Elizabeth

      The Tenerife trip was an absolute joy and everything ran very smoothly, thank you for your usual excellent organisation.

      The hotel was splendid, in an excellent location built over several levels down the sloping terrain, the staff very attentive and our junior suite was so roomy and comfortable. We were on the same level as reception (level 6) and our balcony looked out and down over the pools, then the golf course and down to the Atlantic Ocean. The food was OK, similar presentation style/feel to the Turkey holiday but on a smaller scale (smaller hotel, fewer guests) but if I'm totally honest not as good or varied. Not that we didn't enjoy the cuisine but, in our view, it didn't live up to the rest of the hotel.

      The pools, grounds and numerous seating areas were excellent. The location was very quiet, which was what we wanted, and the walk out from the hotel into Buenavista village and then back along the coastal path between the golf course and the Atlantic Ocean was delightful and one we did every day when not golfing. We found the wonderful cake shop on our first walk into the village and enjoyed the cafes in the central square. We lunched several times at the local fish restaurant at the end of the coastal walk past the golf course, sitting outside overlooking the Atlantic, superb.

      The Seve designed course was very beautiful but also very difficult when playing for the first few times, you definitely need to learn where to try and put your golf ball off the tee! It was fairly quiet with some fantastic views over the Ocean. We used trolleys the first 2 rounds and then buggies for the last 2 as I have a bit of a hamstring problem and needed the help but it is very walkable. On the Saturday golf we were joined by a local member who was very friendly and helpful with some local knowledge and recommended the fish restaurant I referred to earlier (Restaurante El Burgado). After our rounds of golf, we had lunch and a beer at the golf club cafeteria-restaurant which had superb views over the golf course and Atlantic Ocean out of a wall of floor to ceiling glass. We were taken to the course with our clubs by the hotel mini-coach and after golf/lunch a phone call from golf club reception to the hotel and we were picked up and taken back, a couple of minutes door to door.

      Lovely hotel, great staff who couldn’t do enough for you. Everything went to plan, the flights, transfers, & the golf.

      Only criticism we had was the mini bus that took us back to the airport was pretty dilapidated.

      Super Golf course, we thoroughly enjoyed in all weather conditions.  Very very windy the first couple of days.

      Thanks for your services in putting our holiday together. Looking forward to the  next one now 😄

       by Tim

      Island Golf Holidays has delivered again. The Melia Hacienda Del Conde is a beautiful hotel and we have a magnificent room overlooking the third green of the Buenavista golf course.

      I just need to swing long and straight today to pay my respects to ‘Seve’ who apparently visited the course here that he designed on a number of occasions.

      Off now for my early morning swim.

      A short note to say thank you for all the arrangements for our golf holiday in Tenerife from which Susan and I returned yesterday morning.  We had a wonderful time. Great weather throughout (c. 28 degrees with breeze), the golf course was beautiful and sufficiently challenging for 7 days of play, and hotel and staff excellent.   Travel was smooth with no hiccups.  A particularly lovely ending was the expertly driven transit to the airport via the fabulous mountain route.

      All in all a very relaxing and refreshing time.

      Hi David
      We have just returned from golf to be offered the upgrade. We are so grateful to you and the hotel. It makes a huge difference. The junior suites are so much lighter and airier and enable us to sit outside on a warmer open balcony and at night if one of us can’t sleep we can sit in the separate seating area without disturbing the other one. We have had a little sunshine today and the wind has dropped a little too so fingers crossed. We must say that the staff here have all been fantastic and like you we didn’t fancy a busier part of the island. We were just shocked to have such disappointing weather. Thank you again though for your prompt and professional response. We do appreciate it.

      Mollie and Peter.

      Thanks Peter and Mollie the weather does look superb for the next 6 days, you should be ok going forward

      Hi David,
      Thank you for recommending Hacienda del conde it's fabulous. Love the hotel and golf course. We are able to play all 18 holes, 9 holes have been aerated and sanded but are still good. Course very quiet, millionaires golf! Very efficient staff are making sure everything is perfect.
      Weather is glorious too.
      Best wishes from a very happy client.

      Thanks Lesley - I am delighted to hear that you are loving this resort. It offers for me the most idyllic venue on the island with arguably the best golf course of all thanks to the ocean side holes and spectacular mountain and sea views on every hole
