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 have being going on holiday to Tenerife every Christmas for the past 6 years! We love this hotel, it caters for all ages. My son love the children's entertainment in the evening. The rooms are a little bit dated and could do with a bit of a spruse up! However we always managed to request the rooms which we... 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

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

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!...

I had great expectations for this hotel, and I was not disapointed. Staff was really helpfull, friendly and fun! Front desk spoke as many languages as needed (French, German, Portuguese, English, Swiss German...) It felt like at home! The room was clean and quite big with a balcony (had a room on the first floor, they're not the best, but... More

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
