On our last full day at the Arecas after a very enjoyable 2 week stay. The hotel refurbishment is generally excellent, with good quality fixtures and fittings, comfortable rooms etc. The free wifi even works down by the new bar area by the infinity pool. There are a couple of things that could be addressed, as the previous post states,...

Upon arrival you are greeted efficiently at reception where an orange juice is provided whist you check in. Luggage is taken to your room promptly. The rooms are very nice, large bathroom with...

My wife and I, in our early 70s, (but fit and with all our marbles !) have just returned from two weeks at the Arecas. We have stayed in many Riu hotels but this is the first refurbished one in which we have stayed. We chose it because we have liked Riu hotels for their high levels of comfort and...

My husband and I had a week away from from it all before the madness of Christmas. We stayed at the Arecas last year just before it closed to be refurbished, the refurb is now finished and the hotel looks lovely if a little sterile in places. The bedroom was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was large with a...

We've just returned from a week in the hotel having stayed there a couple of years ago. The recently completed facelift is very tasteful and includes an infinity pool on the seafront. I would admit to being a fussy eater but was never disappointed with the quality, variety, or temperature of the food. Drinks in the hotel are reasonably priced....

Returning again for about the 6th time. Refurb OK but standard of food gone down and we thought a big mistake not serving food at the poolside bars especially at the infinity pool as we always went off site to eat at lunchtime. The evening entertainment was awful and no English TV only news channels. Staff still very polite and...

For me the friendly and professional staff are what make this a wonderful place to stay. In addition the choice and quality of the food is first class. The hotel had recently been refurbished. I saw the plans on my last visit ( the third ) and can't wait to see the results in January 16, my next visit.
