Variety is fantastic and plenty fresh bread too. Pool snacks and drinks also available at both pools and a terrace for evening drinks with a band playing each evening. Entertainment... More

My husband and myself have returned from another great stay at the arecas. The breakfast and evening meals were very good and varied. Staff were pleasant and helpful as always. We walked to Los christianos and it's not for the faint hearted, but theirs a bus stop outside the hotel and for 2.90 euros each way for two people is... More

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday to the Riu Arecas. We was originally booked for the Riu Palace Tenerife but the hotel was overbooked so we was offered the Arecas at a reduced price or a full refund. We accepted the Riu Arecas and I will be honest I was a little disappointed but I needn't have... More

We have stayed previously in other Riu Hotels but after this time this will be the last one. Quality has awfaully dropped. The hotel needs an urgent restoration and new decor. Room was large enough. Bathroom floor was cracked and could have produced injuries on feet. Shower grip was broken. Tv ridicously small and old (non flat and 15"). One... More

We stayed in the Riu Arecas in June 2014 and hated it. To get over our experience we decided to go on holiday again are currently staying in the Gloria Palace Royal which is lovely and has prompted me to not how bad this hotel was. On return home in June, I tried without success to find the complaints section... More

Had second holiday at the Riu Arecas (2013 and 2012) and can thoroughly recommend this hotel. The staff are wonderful, extremely friendly and helpful, they even got me a wheelchair when I had problems with my knee! (free of charge.) Food is excellent and always a wide choice for breakfast and evening meal. Light entertainment in the evening and a... More

We stayed at Riu Arecas in December 2013 and loved this hotel. Yes, room was a bit tired (beds and pillows could have been more comfortable), other facilities in the room were absolutely satisfying, everything worked and room was clean. Food was great, I would say it was our favorite part of the hotel :-))) Location is good, 5 minutes... More

Just returning from a weeks holiday at the Riu Arecas with my wife & daughter and her boyfriend. We all had a great time at this hotel ! We had a few minor problems initially with the adjoining rooms we had requested while booking, but credit to (Ivan) on the reception and the manager of the hotel this was quickly... More
