“Typical standards of a Riu hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011 via mobile

We stayed at the hotel for a week on a Thomsons package. The hotel was of a very high standard and the particularly the food was excellent. After a week I still wasn't bored of it. There was good variation as seen throughout the Riu chain.

Rooms were good, well sized and clean. The location was at the quiet end of Adeje. That could be seen as a positive or a negative I suppose. To get to the main part of the resort was about a 30 minute walk although this was pleasant, along the sea front.

A nice hotel, I would recommend it.

Nice/Clean Hotel.
Has two Large pools. Garden area is very nice.
Food is excellent, Something there for everyone ( I am a very picky eater)
Nice bars and restaurants near the hotel.

We liked to walk into Playa De Las Americas at night for the bars, takes around 1 hour ... Very nice walk thou.

Would definitely go back to this hotel.

I booked the Riu Palace in Tenerife for my partners 40th birthday. And it was a very good choice. We went on Friday 13th May 2011 for one week, and we can not praise the hotel and the staff enough.
With our flight landing late with a half hour delay we were not in time for any food, but the hotel laid on a cold buffet, which was more than enough for 11 o'clock at night, they also gave us a welcoming free drink. We received a free bottle of bubbly and a basket fruit on our second day which was a very nice touch.
All the staff are so friendly and helpful this includes the cleaning staff, and all the waiters and waitresses.
The food was excellent you have a choice of the Krystal Fusion restaurant, the buffet or the table service. I cannot comment on the Krystal as we choose not to eat there as we were more that happy with buffet and table service. Believe me when i say there is something for everyone's taste, from steak , pasta, paella, chicken and the amount of different fish types to choose from was amazing. The choice was also extended to breakfast from the good English fry up to cereals, yogurt fresh fruits croissants the works and to top it off if you wanted you can have a courtesy glass of bubbly every morning.
All the facilities were excellent from the gym to the pool sauna and jacuzzi.
The house band every evening was OK but some of the later evening entertainment was spot on.
My only criticism was not with the hotel it was with the surrounding area, there is not a lot to do in the evening. I would definitely book it again.

We stayed at the Riu Palace for 2 weeks from the 22nd January. We had stayed many times in Costa Adeje at a different 5* hotel but decided to give the Riu a whirl as it was recommended to us.
The best decision we have made. It is in a lovely quiet position at the La Caleta end of Adeje. We walked out to La Caleta every morning before breakfast and ate at around 10am when we had built up an appetite and the restaurant was lovely and quiet.
We could not fault the breakfast. Something for everyone and sooo fresh.
Plenty of sunbeds, and not too many reserved so never a problem.
I have to agree with everyone else that the staff pretty much made the holiday. They were briliant, and nothing too much trouble for any of them.
The beds were a bit of a disappointment but this in no way spoilt our sleep.
The hotel was spotless and our room cleaned early every day so that we could pop back after sunbathing and know it would be ready for us. Plenty of spot checking of the cleaning too by the supervisor.
As others have said, we also were given fruit and wine upon our arrival.
We booked with Thompson, and I notice some reviewers said that they were given poor views, I emailed the hotel 2 weeks before we went with request for a good view. Was given 416 which was perfect. Read the other reviews for best rooms to ask for.
We were also given first drop off from the Thomson Bus from the airport which is also brill.
Though this hotel as stated as 4* it is much much better than most 4* hotels I have seen. If you like a quiet area, not much night life, lovely views and 5* customer service, this is the place for you.

The hotel is fantastically located. The top terrace is a perfect place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets!!! The staff, Said, Carlos, Eva, Dahiana, Manel, etc...were not only very helpful and friendly, but provided a setting in which to really make our vacation enjoyable. The hotel staff paid attention to all details and as a guest I discovered the little things that made an huge difference.
The chefs at the Hotel: FANTASTIC..a truly rewarding experince as well, a 4 star buffet daily which felt diffrent each day, plus a reservation-only restaurant, Krystal, included in the meal plan, which was truly exceptional cuisine.
The only thing that could have been improved is the quality of the matresses, at least mine, which depending upon location within some of the wiring could be felt, sleep however was confortable and it had no bearing, but it would have been great a superfluffy matress!!

This was a nice relaxing experience, only just spoilt by two elements. the first was a lack of notification that there was construction work going on right next door to the hotel, this resulted in 5 days of noise (minimum of three heavy duty machines, digging and grinding). The second element was a considerably bland meal service which could be best described as the X-factor, a lot of entries but very little talent!

Outside of these two major issues there was nothing too bad to report. The cleanliness of the hotel is outstanding, the friendliness of the staff is great, but the strict regimented mealtimes is an awful experience.
