Each of the resorts you mention actually link in to together ,you can walk from one and into the next and never realise it ! "Chavs"!! they can stop anywhere any time .PDLA is a great resort with two very small areas that sadly people judge it on ,Veronicas and Starcos areas are the places if you dont want to be around 18/ Chav types .These are areas where if you dont want to go into you certainly dont have to .Do you want upmarket ? Along with up market prices if so look to hotels in the Del Duque area .If you want something more economical but this quite upmarket Cleopatras Palace ,Sir Anthony in PDLA and a very nice area around them ...

Sorry i dont know if there are any upmarket hotels in the Adeje area ,but others will advise i am sure

heres a map link ,you will see whati mean about the boundaries of the southern resorts linking ...........

If you want upmarket then you need to aim specifically for Del Duque which is in the Costa Adeje area. Costa Adeje covers quite a large area.

Del Duque is quieter than PDLA, have never seen any Chavs there and the beach is lovely. It's always the area I aim to stay at when visiting and my favourite place (and I'm sorry to the regulars who keep reading this and groaning, lol) is the Dream Hotel Gran Tacande and then the Jardin de Nivaria. Both are seafront and excellent.

You can walk into PDLA in around 15 minutes and continue straight through into Los Cristianos if you wish.

Oneleg. Us women are used to rushing around everywhere. Hubby lags behind. I could be half way through my first jug of sangria by the time he catches up. But kidding aside we've walked from the Nivaria into PDLA in around 15 minutes. Maybe not the centre but the outskirts.

Council Housed and Violent LOL!! For me - I would use the word chav to describe any of the type of person that appear on Jeremy Kyle!! For the record I do not find Tenerife - PDLA or other parts particularly Chavvy. Yes, you always get one wherever you are, but hey.

I Found this little description of a chav on wikipedia!!

A chav ( chav, also charver in Yorkshire and North East England) is a term that is used in the United Kingdom to describe a stereotype of teenagers and young adults from an underclass background.

The term may have its origins in the Romani word chavi, meaning "child" (or "chavo", meaning "boy", or "chavvy", meaning "youth".

The derivative chavette has been used to refer to females. The adjectives "chavish" and "chavtastic" have been used in relation to items designed for or suitable for use by chavs.

Urban legends have sprung up around the etymology. These include the backronym "Council Housed And Violent" or "Council House-Associated Vermin", and the suggestion that pupils at Cheltenham Ladies' College and Cheltenham College used the word to describe the young men of the town ("Cheltenham Average").

In 2005, media references to "chavs" spread the word throughout Britain. Cultural equivalents have been identified: East Anglia - "Yarco". Eastern North America - Guido,

Stereotype

A chav stereotype, with Adidas jog pants, Nike jacket and a Burberry cap.

Chavs have been noted to often don designer sportswear. Brands such as Adidas, Burberry, Puma, Umbro, Ecko, Carbrini and Kappa are very popular, with many chavs often wearing a full tracksuit or tracksuit bottoms, with a hoodie or polyester jacket, baseball cap and oversized trainers. Clothing attire is usually navy, white, black, red or grey for the chav male, and pink and white are very common with the "chavette", particularly jogging bottoms, velour tracksuits or shell suits. Stereotypical attire might be accompanied by some form of bling, such as oversized gold hoop earrings and necklaces, bracelets and rings, and an abundance of tattoos.

Several stereotypical traits are associated with chavs; smoking, drinking and taking drugs in gangs on street corners and outside shops, petty thievery and violence, vandalism and graffiti, an exaggerated "tough" gangster-like voice and lingo and foul, aggressive language (with common expressions such as "Am I bovvered" or "Warru on about"), council house/flat accommodation, unemployment and state benefits scrounging (and despite this still appearing to have money for show), teenage girls being sexually promiscuous and smoking whilst pregnant, driving a highly modified and chromed up Vauxhall Nova (in particular), Vauxhall Cavalier, Ford Sierra, Ford Escort or Austin Metro, usually souped up with alloys, stickers, oversized spoiler, side panels, exhaust pipe and engine, painted white or in some flamboyant colour, enhanced speakers blasting hip-hop, R&B, garage, drum and bass or rave/jungle music, and chewing whilst being spoken to. Stereotypical chavs tend to sport skinheads, or very short hair with short back and sides and fringe, usually gelled down. In northern British cities such as Manchester, it is fashionable for some chavs to sport longer hair and sides in the Mod fashion."Chavettes" stereotypically wear their hair tightly scraped back into a ponytail or bun, known as the "Council house face lift"
