We have stayed at this Hotel on a number of occasions and with this chain in a number of countries and have been pleased with their service. However on arrival what was described as refurbishment of its sister hotel RIU Princess can only be described as a part re-build. The noise of pneumatic drilling was incessant and many people were...

We were at the Riu Arecas for 11 nights 10th to 21st April. It is between La Caletta fishing village and the outskirts of Adeje. My husband and I could not fault it. We were half board. The staff are so friendly and want you to enjoy your holiday. The food is great. So much variety. Meat and fish cooked... More

Looking at the reviews on line the interior reviews are reasonably accurate. The bedrooms are tired and ready for modernisation, however they are very clean. The beds are uncomfortable and in my view probably below a 4 star standard. Meals are included in the rate for an evening meal, the restaurant again is probably about a low 4 star standard,... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week and enjoyed every moment. The staff are second to none and we complimented the Manager on this. There were renovations going on in the Arecas Palace next door but it didn't bother us at all. This hotel is due a refurbishment soon and I would come again. The food is fantastic .... More

We stayed here for just one night in April 2015. Our flight had had a long delay and we were all put here to stay the night to await our flight home. On arrival the reception area was lovely. Bit and expansive. Our room was a little dated but I see that they are due a refurb shortly. The arrival... More

Due to late cancellation with another holiday company. We booked this hotel last minute. appreciated the taxi journey from the airport (both ways) which was included in the price, which only took 15 minutes. Instead of the usual hour and a half bus journey dropping off at various Hotels. Really impressed with the hotel the only downside we had was... More

Just come back from a fantastic 10 day holiday at Hotel Arecas. We had been there twice before and enjoyed it but when it was coming up to our Golden Wedding Anniversary three years ago we thought we would try a 5 star. We have tried two different 5 star Hotels in the area, but none as friendly as this... More

Stayed here for two weeks hotel was clean and tidy staff were helpful and friendly. Our friends stayed at the riu palace over the road which is miles nicer but we booked last minute so we were not overly disappointed. I would return as the location was perfect. Our nightly stroll into town was my highlight
