My wife and I wanted to celebrate our 40th (Ruby) wedding anniversary somewhere warm but not too hot. After a great deal of research my wife found the Riu Arecas on Tenerife. This is a quiet, adults only 5 Star hotel in the resort of Adeje, which is a couple of miles up the coast from the much more brash...

We were not disappointed they even left a celebration bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate my husbands birthday!! Could not fault it in anyway whatsoever and will be back next January as...

Stayed at this Hotel 9/01/17 to 16/01/17. Very good standard set by all staff ,extremely friendly and helpful at all levels. Could not fault the food and presentation of the international buffet. Would recommend trying the Spanish tapas restaurant . No hesitation in recommending this Hotel will definitely go back. A 10 minute walk will take you to the fishing...

The Riu Arecas has been recently renovated. We are regulars and we have always enjoyed our holidays here, but it is even better now. The adults only is great. Also, the whole renovation has just lifted the swish feeling of the Hotel. Many of the staff are still the same which is great as you cannot fault any of them....

Been to this hotel many times and have always had an enjoyable experience. Friendly staff who greet you with a smile every time we've arrived and a refreshing glass of fruit punch! Booked through Thomsons at a reasonable price, I think it is now predominately Thomsons from the UK. Spotlessly clean hotel, rooms and pool deck. There is cabaret every...

I stayed in this hotel for six nights and pretty much everything was perfect. As others have said, the hotel is immaculate, the rooms spacious, the staff friendly and the food fantastic (although not so good if you're trying to watch your weight!) Having a gym was therefore ideal (with towels provided). There were pretty much no other solo travellers...
