We stayed in the Riu Arecas in Jan/Feb and really enjoyed it. We decided to visit Tenerife again from May 24 to June 07, and decided to try the Arecas's sister hotel the Riu Palace which is positioned in front of the Arecas.
The room (510) was a little smaller and the side sea view not quite as good as the Arecas, the patio chairs were a lot more comfortable. Reception offered us a larger room on the ground floor, however we were settled by then and decided to stay where we were. The breakfast and dinner were typical of the Riu chain, and we were very happy with both the quality and variety of the food provided. We really enjoyed the breakfast on the balcony with a wonderful sea view. The price of the wine with the evening meal was very reasonable(£13), which you can leave for the next evening or take with you to the show.
The evening shows were quite good(El Divo) were excellent. A bit repetitive but that can be expected. Plenty of sunbeds ,however prime positioned beds were "booked" early, the beach area had more room than the pool area.
If you are thinking of booking an excursion while you are there it's worth prebooking with Tenerife sunshine, E Mail them and get an extra discount by booking online. We had the tickets sent to us via the hotel. Very good trip. Very reasonable.
We slightly preferred the Palace, it depends on the cost.
