    Fantastic Hotel!

    The hotel is located in the nicest part of Adeje and just a short stroll from the beach. It was 2 large swimming pools and a private area at the back of the beach with an infinity pool - our favourite part, loved it. Never a shortage of sunbeds in either location. We had a pool view room, 4046, which we loved as the sun would hit the balcony at the end of the day enabling us to enjoy a nice glass of wine before our evening meal. Food was lovely, lots of choice, although I would have liked to see some casseroles. The whole hotel was immaculately clean and the staff couldn't do enough to help. We will definitely return!!

    Lovely Relaxing Holiday

    Have recently returned from a very enjoyable stay at the Riu Arecas. Staff were extremely efficient and friendly and this helped create a pleasant atmosphere. Food in buffet restaurant was of good quality and high standard, so much to choose from you were spoiled for choice. Drinks in bars and restaurant reasonably priced. Rooms spacious and housekeeping of a high standard. Large containers of nice smelling hand wash, body/shampoo wash and conditioner in bathroom. Evening entertainment was okay and very good on a couple of nights. Hotel is in a good location in a quieter part of Adeje with nice walks along the sea front. You can walk for miles, but if you prefer not to walk there is a bus every 20 minutes into Las Americas and Los Cristianos costs 1.50 Euros, bus stop is just a few minutes walk from hotel. This is a good 4 star hotel and we will definately return.
