The hotel was everything we were looking for. It was quiet and peaceful and all the staff in all areas, especially reception and the bar were exceptional. It was lovely and clean and the food was varied and tasty. It is due for a refurb later this year and then wil become adult only. We are looking forward to returning... More

I can't say enough about the staff at this hotel, they are so lovely, we have visited twice now and on both occasions you cannot fault them, so friendly, and they seem to remember people from year to year, I think a lot of regulars keep coming back to this hotel, which must tell you something. I almost don't want... More

Just got back from three weeks at the Arecas had a great time met some nice people staff very friendly and helpful and food good. The hotel is undertaking a much needed refurbishment however in the way it is planned it will now become just another holiday hotel with noisy floors (carpets in bedrooms at present reducing floor noise) therefore...

I'll get the negative part out of the way first.We were in a lower level room and the noise of drilling,hammering,scraping etc, from the basement underneath went on ,during the working day for the 11 nights we were there. We spoke to a receptionist about it, and her view was we should look at the situation from the hotels point... More

Just back after a week's stay at the Riu Arecas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely hotel. Although due to undergo a major refurbishment we found the hotel very smart indeed. Our room was superb and had a lovely view over the pools and sea. The dining room is buffet style but one of the best buffet operations... More

A very relaxed stay for four nights in late jan/early feb. The clientele were generally older people seeking winter sun. The staff were great and the food was a pleasant surprise (plenty of variety). We thought the drinks and food was very reasonably priced too. A short walk from lovely little restaurants and a slightly longer stroll along the coast... More

We're just back from a good week at the Riu Arecas - our second stay with this hotel group, following an excellent holiday at the Riu Garoe in north Tenerife in late 2013. This time we wanted to try the south coast, and while not quite as good as the Riu Garoe, overall the hotel was fine. The Riu customer... More

I think one of the beat things about this hotel is its location.Its at the far end of Costa Adeja only a short walk to La Caleta.its near the seafront and much quieter and calmer than the busier parts of Adeja.We loved walking to La Caleta every day. it's small and...
