We were very pleased to be back again for a brilliant holiday at the Riu Hotel Costa Adeje Tenerife. A great welcome from the reception staff and we were pleased with our room on the 4th floor with views over the pool and sea view. The room was a good size and very comfortable with a balcony, A/C, fan and...

A recent visit to this hotel could not have been better. The receptionists bent over backwards to get things right for us, the food was superb, the location was near the airport but you would never know. I cannot recommend this place more and the fact the price was so reasonable was just icing on the cake.

Previous reviews for Riu Arecas were generally positive. This is accurate. We arrived, were greeted & checked in. Given room 1082 on first floor, not a very good view as not high enough to enjoy a sea veiw and later discovered it was noisy as there was a pump or generator buzzing outside. We did however overlook the tennis costs...

The hotel is old but this is not a big problem because in my opinion the hotel is in very good conditions. If I was a manager in order to make hotel more modern and attractive I would: change carpets (in our room was very worn out), change TV-sets to flat ones (nowadays) this is standard), change paper bags of...

Jus returned from Hotel Riu Arecas having stayed there for a week. The rooms obviously need to be refurbished. However, they were kep spotlessly clean.

Had a fab week at Hotel Riu Arecas in Tenerife. Was cheap and looked good value with half board but wasn't expecting to like it so much. Hotel is large but not overwhelming as some of the Tenerife ones are. Rooms all look over gardens, pool or sea. We were travelling as a family and they arranged adjacent rooms which...
