The staff is very friendly and tries really hard! The rooms have to be renovated because it's outdated. The carpet has stains in it for instance. The food is ok, but for a 4 star hotel I expect a bit more... The hotel has definately has potential.

We returned from the Riu Arecas about 10 days ago. I cannot fault the staff at the hotel. All without exception were friendly and very hardworking. We were very disappointed with the hotel, our room was not great and was in need of upgrading - the bath had several repairs in it. Not something you would expect from a 4... More

Just got back from a 10 day stay there, everything was indeed very very good, staff, brilliant food and plenty of it, people who complain only have themselves to blame, the whole of the hotel was spotless, one downside the bar bit expensive & very dark & needs a refurbishment no wonder there was no one in there, lots of...

We stayed here with our 14 year old twins and all enjoyed the hotel and our holiday. When we arrived we were not completely happy with the location of our rooms so asked for a change and the reception staff were very helpful, allocating us two new rooms overlooking the pool area and gardens. In general we found the hotel... More

This was our fourth stay at the Riu Arecas, marked by a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine being delivered to our room - a very nice touch by the management and much appreciated. As always, the hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed this visit as much as our first but, if only to avoid being labelled ‘boring’, we’ll... More

We booked this hotel last minute not very much knowing what to expect. It turned out to be a great experience. The rooms are spacious and good equipped. The bathrooms are clean and sufficient. The hotel offers a lot of value for its guests with a very kind service, well spoken languages and helpful for each and everyone. Very recommendable... More
