Having stayed in some 5* Hotels in this Area this is by far the best and should be rated 5***** Free Champagne on arrival what a way to start the Holiday and the luggage taken to our room by the Bell Boy - They certainly no how to look after you here .
The Management and Staff are of the highest standard and nothing is too much trouble for them they certainly go beyound there normal field to ensure you have a most pleasant and enjoyable stay we would personally wish to thank Thomas ( assistant Director ) David ( Resturant Manager ) the Bell Boy , The Room Maids and all of the Waiters all of these are a credit to the Rui Group and made our Holiday an experience not to forget.
The Hotel ; Its an upside down hotel ie the reception is on the 6th Floor ( which is actually Road Level ) and the Pool Area on obviously the Ground Floor Level . The hotel is certainly accessable for disabled bodied persons as there are 4 lifts and access Ramps throughout the Hotel to All levels including a Ramp access to the Main Walkway in front of the Hotel.
Recomendation ; Request a " Pool View Room " ( Prefferably 2nd / 3rd Floor Levels ) when Booking as you then have a direct view of the beach and La Gomera The higher you get the Smaller the Balconies / Terraces are but all are of plentiful size . You could also request a Mountain View room with Views of Mount Tiede on a Clear Day.
The Rooms are of plentiful size , complete with Large Bathroom and power shower , TV , Hair dryer , Air Conditioning and well stocked mini bar ( although you will have to pay for useage ) .
The Beds contrary to some reports are of a very good standard with firm matresses and pillows I slept better here than in UK. ( I believe some Suites are also available on the 5th Floor )
There is a vast array of food in the Resturant Buffet of the highest standard and quality ( We have a very fusy 11 Year Old and he ate without complaint they even did pizza ) I feel to cater for all tastes including vegetarians and you can also have free of charge waiter service at your table at no time during our stay did we have to wait longer than 2 minutes for food even when waiting for freshly cooked items , There is also " Show Cooking " once or twice a week and you have the opportunity to swap a couple of your nights to go eat in the " Krystal " Resturant which is of exceptional quality with fantastic sea views on the 6th Floor ( But you must book a couple of days in advance ) We again wish to thank the resturant manager and all of the waiters for there outstanding service and professionalism.
Breakfast can be taken in the main dinning Area or out on the Large Terrace overlooking the Sea - THis is also where you will find the evening entertainment of resident Trio and Tribute singers the perfect place to relax after dinner.
The pool area ( of which there are 2 and a childrens pool ) is of a plentiful size with adequate sun loungers ( but as we had arrived in probably the busiest two weeks of the season ) found i had to be down by 08.00 Hrs ( Pool opening time to reserve sun loungers ) with a Sea View. You will also find within the Complex a man made Beach Section with Sea Views and plently of Sun Longers and Parasols . In all these area's you again receive Waiter Service for you drinks . You will also find a Main Pool Bar also serving light Lunches and a Day Time resturant serving food until approx 15.00 Hrs.
Also available within the Hotel are Leisure Facilities ; ie massage , sauna , etc and a small Gym Some of these are free Charge , I believe the massage is very good as my partner had one whilst i encountered 1 1/2 Hours on the Jet Skies with the 11 year Old ( This cost 70 Euro's ) but was well worth it ) These are available in Puerto Colon along with numerous Boat Excursions.
This Hotel is situated directly on the Beach with access via a Electronic Keyed access gate which opens up to the continous miles of Walkways .
Turn left out of the Hotel ( Sea elevation ) and within 2 minutes you have a Couple of Super Markets and local Bars for snacks ect - Within 5 Mins you enter Duque and the start of numerous resturants ( should you wish to eat out ) and within 15 Mins Walk of the Hotel along the Sea Front you are in Puerto Colon and the Resturants are endless.Turn right out of the Hotel and in approx 10 - 15 Mins Stroll you are in Calletta the small fishing village with good resturants.
A Taxi to Puerto colon is approx 5 Euro's and a taxi to Las Americas approx 12 Euro's - 10 mins and 15 mins respectively.
A Must to do ; a bit of sight seeing is to Hire a Segway Bike " Motion Sensor " You just Stand on these and Go " These come with a Guide and are approx 25 Euro's for a 1 Hour Trip - These are available to hire at the Segway office located in front of the Riu Palace sister Hotel of Arecas just behind the Palace.
I Think I have gone on enough now ! But what a Great Holiday with Exceptional , Professional Staff and service at the Riu Palace Tenerife I would also like to say this Hotel at all times ( No matter how busy ) was spotless in terms of cleanliness.
Highley reccommend Hotel and we will be back soon ;
Thankyou to all the management and Staff at the Rui.
