Riu Arecas Hotel
This adults-only hotel gives you a triple helping of pools, and it’s just a short walk to the beach.
This huge building is shaped like a cruise liner. On one side you’ve got the Adeje mountains and, on the other, views of the Atlantic Ocean. Within the hotel, there's a trio of pools and a buffet restaurant.
The hotel’s in an upmarket part of Costa Adeje, just a five-minute drive from the centre. And it’s a five-minute cab ride in the other direction to La Caleta, a fishing village home to bars and restaurants.

Once again we had a lovely holiday and given a room which we requested facing the modern church and mountain views. Staff are friendly and helpful but they should employ more waiting staff in the dining room at busy times to help clear tables, but this was only a minor issue. Loved the relaxing time spent down on the hotel's beach which was kept clean and tidy, we had more cloudy days on this trip than our previous two but when the sun came out it was lovely.More
Excellent holiday, again!
This was our fifth stay at this excellent hotel and once again the food, staff, facilities, entertainment were all superb. The weather was very settled apart from two days out of twenty eight of which one was very windy and the other cloudy. Also our room request was honoured...so happy bunnies again!More
This hotel is superb Staff are friendly and helpful Everywhere is spotlessly clean and tended to. Housekeeping to rooms every day. Adults only hotel so it was very peaceful and relaxed by the pools and very civilized at Breakfast/Dinner Wide range of freshly cooked foods to choose fromMore
We booked this hotel at the last minute to get a break over the new year period. We were very impressed from the moment we arrived we were treated very well. Our room on the 5th floor had beautiful views over the pool and sea and a bonus to have sunshine every day!!!! There was a gala evening on New Year’s Eve and the hotel went all out to make it special plenty of entertainment and effort and beautiful food. Each evening the entertainment was very good and the buffet for breakfast and dinner was plentiful The first couple of days after new year we found the restaurant seemed short staffed so coming into the restaurant and finding tables that weren’t cleared and stressed waiters was a disappointment but that seemed to improve very quickly with possibly extra staff being brought in ! A small downside we felt that it was a shame you had to go to the pool bar for a drink or coffee in the daytime. There are no facilities for a drink in the hotel no kettle in the rooms and no room service. However if we came again we would take a travel kettle with us as there’s a fridge. The hotel was spotless staff were friendly polite and efficient and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. !!!!!More
Superb vegetarian friendly Riu Arecas Hotel!
Just about to book our 2nd stay at this hotel. Something I never usually do. The buffet food is superb and the vegetarian options are among the best I've experienced. They have three pools including the infinity pool by the beach, two of which were warm enough for a comfortable swim. I've tried many Canaries hotels in search of a pool that isn't freezing and this is a big part of why we're booking another stay. Location wise we were close to the promenade for our daily stroll into town, and there are some cheap and cheerful bars just a minute away. The modest wee basement bar run by the British Wotherspoon family became a favourite, especially as they showed the rugby and had decent pub food and prices and a warm welcome. One of the bars across the road was great also but the name escapes me. Everyone had decent free wifi including the hotel. Top place! Top holiday! More
