We have just returned from a two week stay in Rui Arecas and had to report what a great hotel this is. It is extremely clean, the staff are very welcoming and the buffet restaurant caters for all needs. For the first few days our room was on the ground floor overlooking the pool but I requested a higher room...

Just returned from a week's stay and what a lovely hotel this is. We had a room on the lower ground floor that overlooked a garden area. Not the best of views but very near to the swimming pool area and the room was very quiet which was to our liking. Nice and spacious in the room with plenty of...

Excellent adult only hotel in a select area of Tenerife.buffet style restaurant was varied and had a very pleasant outside area.Hotel parking was adequate with easy access to bus services if required,however Tenerife is like many Spanish resorts no stranger to crime we suffered a loss visiting a fiesta as did many others.

Second stay at this rebranded hotel, notable for new policy not to allow anyone under 18 in! Result is that the average age of residents has increased but this should not deter younger couples from staying. The food has improved, the pools have side sections where you can simply lie in a couple of inches of water and absorb the...

We have just got back from having a lovely week here. It was one of the best hotels we ever stayed at. The staff were all amazing, the food lovely. It was so clean and beautifully kept. The rooms were a good size, very comfortable. No silliness with reserving sunbeds here which makes a nice change. We ate twice in...

Had a great deal with Thomson at this large adults only hotel. Costa Adeje is much less commercialised than Las Americas but a 10/15 minute walk along the promenade in front of the hotel takes you to numerous bars, shops and restaurants. I have not stayed in a Riu hotel previously but based on this experience would have no hesitation...

RIU Arecas was recommended to us by a work colleague, and I am so glad she did! We stayed first week in May. The hotel has a calm relaxed feel. The food was delicious, something for everyone. There was even a sushi section, and a chocolate fountain.Our room was modern, and cleaned to a high standard. Shower very powerful. There...

On arrival we were greeted and served fresh orange juice whilst we waited to check in. The reception staff were always happy, courteous and nothing was too much trouble ......We were immediately impressed by the 'vibe' of the place and how clean it was. For the rest of our holiday we were blown away by the attention to detail in...

Tenerife was not high on the list of places to visit, but due to circumstances, we needed to go. After thorough research, we decided to go to Riu Arecas. We did not choose the Riu Palace, which would have been our first choice, since this is not an adults only hotel. This is the certainly one of the biggest pro's...
