What made our week in Tenerife was the hotel's staff. They were helpful, funny, entertaining and cared that we were enjoying our stay. If we ever did this kind of holiday again, we would be very tempted to go back. The facilities were adequate - basic but they didn't need to be anything special. The shower and bed were excellent!...

Yesterday we returned home after a 2 week stay. Over the years we have stayed in the Costa Adeje area several times. This was our first visit to this hotel and we will certainly go back again. The staff are amongst the very best and friendliest we have ever dealt with in a holiday resort. I would suspect this is... More

This was our first visit to the riu and we were very disappointed. We felt very unwelcome and found the other guests to be unfriendly and rude. The food was canteen like and of low quality and we ended up eating out most nights. The only thing that made our stay was our maid rose and a morrocan bar man.... More

Have just returned from a fort nights holiday at the Riu Arecas, the hotel looks good from the outside but bedrooms are tired and the carpets in need of a good clean. The food was first class, plenty of it and an amazing choice every night. I am a vegetarian and a fussy one at that and I could have... More

Our room had loads of storage space and... More
