We consider ourselves Riu veterans having stayed in numerous Riu's in the Canaries in the last few years, this is by a distance the most disappointing. There are Positives, so I will start with them, my reviews are always based on value for money so I like to give honest reviews based on this consideration. We booked with Thompson and... More

Just returned from 10 night honeymoon stay at the Riu Arecas and if you're looking for quality, cleanliness, customer service, and outstanding facilities then look no further. Majority of rooms with sea/pool view, rooms are big, modern, very clean, and all have balconies. Food choice is incredible and of very high standard, chefs and restaurant staff are top drawer and...

Great hotel Very clean Friendly staff Beachside location with infinity pool. Only 1 downside was that sandwiches eaten at the Aloha pool bar were served in the plastic containers like you get from tesco and sainsburys back home and tasted awful...best go outside and eat in one of many other snack bars

My friend and I have just returned from an amazing week in the Riu Arecas! The hotel is truly beautiful with outstanding customer service. - On arrival we were greeted with a drink and our suitcases were kindly taken to our room. The porter then continued to show us how to use air conditioning etc and gave advice on short... More

My partner and I stayed at Riu Arecas for a total of 9 nights in July/August and really enjoyed our time there. Situated in walking distance to the pretty waterfront of Costa Adeje, but removed enough to feel quiet and secluded, the hotel is contemporary and stylish. The rooms are a decent size with everything you’d expect including air-con and,... More

We stayed at the Riu Arecas for a week and overall had a fantastic time. Lovely, clean rooms, cleaned daily by the brilliant maids. Huge shower and comfortable beds. The TV caters more to German visitors which isn't a major issue but would have been nice to have some English speaking channels due to the fact we were there during... More

Lovely hotel, great location! Food lovely! Room lovely & clean, maid service daily. Food & drinks bought not on half board are added to your room bill & you don't always know how much your bill is due to type of receipt given (digital receipt would work better we thought), we put money aside each day to cover this. Towels... More
