The Palms, Golf del Sur, Tenerife

This week our ‘ladies wot lunch’ tried The Palms in Golf del Sur.

It is many years since I stayed there, in fact talking to the man who ran the restaurant it has got to be somewhere close to 10 years as when I went it was timeshare and they pulled out around 8 years ago.  It was very nice when I visited but he said once the timeshare knew they were leaving they let it get run down. It is now mostly privately owned and the owners have done a lot of work making the public areas pleasant and green and it is exceptionally clean.   The only drawback as far as I am concerned is the low flying planes coming into land at the nearby airport.  I know those who live there say they don’t notice them and those who are there on holiday say they get used to them after a few days, however I didn´t have a few days, just a few hours and I found them unbelievably noisy which is a shame because the complex itself is lovely.

There is a pretty little restaurant with terraces both sides, one overlooking a swimming pool.  We parked ourselves in the shade of some trees with a nice view of the gardens and a couple of cats that were playing hide and seek amongst the potted plants. The place was almost empty, a couple were inside the bar having a drink but we were the only ones on the terrace and the only ones eating. The man serving was very pleasant and brought our drinks quickly, a glass of San Valentin and a cola lite, he took our orders.

Linda went for fish and chips, refused the mushy peas and asked for coleslaw instead.  I had the roast beef sandwich with fried onions and chips, these were extra.  I enjoyed mine but in Linda’s words “I did not really enjoy my meal (well in comparison to other weeks) the fish was just from a Iceland box and the price was more than my pork chops last week”.   I know what she meant, if you actually look at the picture of her fish and chips you can see it is one of those frozen ones that you buy in the stores.

Unfortunately although the setting is nice, the mediocre food and relatively high prices, our bill was €20 – the glass of wine was €2.80, means we will not be returning in a hurry although we probably won´t leave it 10 years!

    the palms is the best place to stay in golf del sur,the gardens are fantastic.the pool bar is a very good poolbar and is very popular,you must have had a bad day as it is very good .

    • I think Ann that I said the setting was nice and the staff pleasant however the wine was expensive compared to most places, my friend hated the frozen fish and I can´t really see any day when there will be no low flying aircraft so not a bad day, just a normal one that was not particularly to our taste, but as it is all just personal opinions none are right or wrong just different, as are the people who have them.

    We stayed for 12 days last year and the food was lovely as were the staff. And you do get used to the planes, after a few hours you don’t notice them. We have actually opted to stay there again this year as we can’t fault the place.

    When I was in Golf Del Sur last year we did think about looking in the Palms but the food was so good at Sunningdale Village and also The Mill that we didn’t bother, seems like we didn’t miss anything.
