I have stayed at the hotel 3 times in the last few months. The hotel was fully refurbished and to a great standard. There's 5 swimming pools, all lovely and spotlessly clean. Various bars and restaurants. Even in these Covid restricted times, they have it spot on. Full staff, clean, helpful staff and probably one of the best run hotels I have stayed at in the last year in the Canary Islands. Which is a great compliment as I stay at many, at least 2 a month. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality 4 star hotel that hasn't dropped their standards or put on skeleton staff who can't cope. This hotel had it running like clock work, I was impressed at the amount of activities offered too, especially under the current circumstances. Puts the 5 star ones i've stayed in lately to shame. I have recommended it to friends and family and will definitely return.

I was at Riu Buenavista for 21 days. The employees of the hotel are really polite and competent. The animation’s team is the best that I have ever seen, specifically Héctor, Carlos, David, Gunnar, Andrea and Silvia (I miss you guys). The Aquagym trainer (Dagois) is incredibly good!! The food at the Restaurant tastes great. The employees of the bar are really kind, specifically Fatima! The restaurant manager Paula is incredibly competent!!! I love the way that she works. Unfortunately the juices at the restaurants aren’t natural. They tasted like artificial, the same with the cocktails at the bar. During the time that I was there the employees were cleaning the hotel all the time. It is really good in the time of a pandemic. Muchas gracias!! Thank you very much for all the team from the Riu Buenavista. I miss you all. Best regards Yan from Brazil/Germany.

We had an amazing Christmas break at this hotel. We booked a very last minute deal with Tui (who were also fantastic) and were so happy we did. The hotel is spotless. Refurbished to a high standard. The family room we stayed in was HUGE. Kids got their own bed rather than sharing a sofa bed. Separate room area for us, so we each had a TV and air con we could control to suit our needs. We had a view of the sea, banana plantation and Teide behind. Gorgeous! Everything was new. The beds were super comfy. The sunbeds were spotless. Lovely quality pool towels. There are several pools. We enjoyed the one by the sea and the fun pool with activities. Although the hotel was quiet they still ran a full animation programme and there was a lovely atmosphere in the day and at night. Santa arrived on the 24th. Each child (13 and under) received a gift and all seemed to love it. The buffet was good. We managed to book a night in the Italian buffet, which was lovely too. In terms of covid rules they were strict, which felt reassuring. Masks on when walking round. You get used to it in the end! We are so sad to be home and would love to return one day!

Tasty, healthy and various food in the Restaurant! - very cold in the rooms, very loud during all times, cleaning personal is very disturbing, poor alcohol quality, strange contingent of people, horrible wi-fi (pushing on you to pay for the faster connection), non-informative reception

We stayed at the Riu for 11 nights and had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and tidy, food amazing although no omelette man (only on the 1st day of your holiday) which was disappointing. Good choice of pools (bit too cold for me although 2 were heated). Jose (barman), Laura and Esther (dining hall) were amazing, Jose even helped my daughter improve on her Spanish. They couldn't do enough for us they were all very helpful. Bingo lingo was lots of fun especially as we won the line and house in one day (will look after our pink sunglasses and Riu hat forever).
