The hotel has recently been refurbished, and the public areas modernised, personally I don’t think that the hard bench seats in reception are comfortable or attractive but each to their own. The bedrooms are reasonably sized and are functional but are nothing special, I found it impossible to get comfortable on the seats in the room and only English TV...

We needed some sun to escape the winter in Scotland and booked the flights and hotel separate. We like Adeje as although it is quitter it is easy walking distance to everything. As this hotel had recently been renovated we were keen to see what it was like and it did not disappoint. Good king size bed, big flat screen...

We have been going to the Riu Arecas for 14 years and have just come back after two weeks there. The refurbishment is wonderful and modern. They now have an extra infinity pool down by the beach. Everything looks so different. But most of the staff are still there so it still feels like home. There is now another block...

Hotel Riu Arecas will not disappoint if you like an adults only vacation close to the sea. Following its recent refurb this hotel offers excellent value easily ticking all the boxes with regards service from very wecolming staff, good food,lovely rooms with a shower to die for, and smashing pool facilities. Highly recommended.

Riu Arecas apparently underwent a complete transformation between August and October of last year, and the results are impressive; I know this because other guests told me (perhaps a little wistfully?) that it was smaller before, with wood panelling and a more boutique feel to it. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient - as we walked from our room...

We needed some sun as the month of January in Northern Europe was/ is very dark, wet and gloomy this year. We booked this hotel as part of a package, which normally we never do. But it seemed like a good deal and as it turned out it was. Totally renewed hotel with fresh clean rooms, not extremely luxurious, but...

I stayed at Riu Arecas for 4 nights and it was the perfect touch to my holiday. Being a young couple, we did feel a little out of place as 98% of the clientele are generally older but nothing that dampened my holiday! The staff are absolutely lovely - you will never walk past a member of staff without them...

The Arecas reopened in October 2015 after refurbishment (17 years since its last refurb.) This is a great hotel but, while most of the refurbishment has been very positive, some is letting the hotel down badly. Reception. The old reception was seriously lacking in seating, this has been rectified but sadly much of what has been put in would not...
