We have just returned from a week at the Riu Buena Vista. Will start with the positives - Staff always helpful and friendly. Family room spacious with large balcony. Free hotel shuttle bus to Playa de las Americas.
Negatives - Hotel has alot of rooms which we felt the one main buffet restaurant at peak times felt like a canteen, being a bit of a free for all rush and queuing for meals. The food was below average in taste and also tended to be luke warm most of the time. Breakfast being the worst with powdered scrambled egg and poor quality bacon/sausages.
Waiter service at dinner is for water only, wine is on tap in restaurant - either white or rose both not too good. You could ask for Cava which was better.
The main problem we felt that there was not enough sun beds for all the guests, although the hotel has a non reserving of sun beds this was not adhered to, therefore by 6-30am most beds were taken and it was still dark outside until 7-30! So to avoid not having a place in the sun I was up at 5-30am. This did not make for a relaxing holiday.
Evening time - hotel did have indoor entertainment but if you wanted to sit outside there are just two areas with limited tables/seating and the area was not well lit, no music being played so felt devoid of atmostphere.
All in all felt hotel was more 3 star and feel there are better 4 star hotels available.
