From a warm welcome, following a brilliant 7 night cruise on the Thomson Majesty, we were shown to a beautifully decorated bedroom with a huge double double bed, a nice balcony with a cooling aspect. The time of year ensured little direct sun, which was great as daytime temperatures were up to 30 degrees. In reception before anything a waiter...

Our first time here, for a week's Christmas break, and we couldn't fault it. Speaking with people who had stayed at the hotel before the recent renovation, it is clear that huge improvements were made. Food excellent, staff excellent (clearly well-trained and motivated) room was great and it was particularly interesting and gratifying to see the attention to detail paid...

This hotel is even better since its recent renovation. The staff are helpful and professional. Nuria and Eddy at reception recognised us from previous visits which was really nice. The restaurant has any time dining which is a great improvement with larger seating areas outside. There is also a Spanish restaurant next to the main restaurant which is another option...

I've been to Riu Arecas twice before over Christmas and both times I had a lovely holiday. This year, because of the planned refurbishment, I was not sure what to expect. So I booked my Christmas break in early October, hoping that all the works would have finished and I would got to a familiar, yet new place. I saw...

We stayed over New Years for 6 nights. The rooms are large, clean and modern. There's lots of choice for food each night with lots of fresh fish, various meats and side dishes. Breakfast is the same every day with cold meats, cheeses, cereal, fruit, pastries and cooked breakfast. The staff are very helpful and couldn't do more for you....

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,...
