Since our last visit, this hotel has had a complete make over. The rooms are very large with huge bed in the bathroom the bath/shower has been replaced with a wet room which for us was perfect. We had a double balcony which had the sun allday. They have made the terrace larger so it was easy to get a...

This is the 3rd time we stayed at this hotel. This time in mid February we only stayed for 2 nights. As we arrived, we didn't feel welcomed at all. The tall German lady at the reception treated us rather impersonal. The only thing that seemed important was ; fill in the forms, give me your reservation printout and credit...

All reviews are subjective and tend to reflect the overall holiday experience . They are also only a snapshot covering the actual time spent at the hotel, This was our second year at this hotel we booked up for two weeks without any reservations after the week we had last year. LOCATION. Nice location if you are mobile. There are...

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Riu Arecas. Having been to other Riu Hotels we certainly were not disappointed as they seem to maintain a very high standard of accommodation and service. We had a lovely room on the 3rd floor with sea views though one not directly above the evening entertainment area would be even better - it...

Date of stay 8 -15 February, room 3039. Our room was very spacious and had quite a good sea view. Rooms are well appointed with adequate drawers and wardrobe space. The balcony was also a good size, but could have had a more adequate clothes airer than the one provided. We travelled with Thomson, but had private taxi transfer and...

Re-visited the Arrecas for a second consecutive year from 31st January to 14th February. To return to the same Hotel is a complement in itself but for me the Arrecas must be the best 4 Star Hotel on Tenerife. Excellent welcome and prompt registration by professional and informative staff. Our visit was our honeymoon after a December wedding and tongue...
