Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We walked from Costa teguise along the coast, sadly not a pretty walk as it’s very industrial! You will pass some lovely coves and spots for a swim, if you don’t mind the surroundings. Blue 17 made the walk worth it. The hotel is huge...and with the bar being on the top floor the views are fantastic. The menu is great and very well priced. We had a pizza, potatoes and two drinks for €38 The service is first class you will not be disappointed. 100% worth the visit…More

Great service. Waiters extremely attentive and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Octopus dish was superb. Tiramisu was amazing. View spectacular. Price reasonable for a hotel. Highly recommended.

Amazing views in Blue 17 (the 17th floor sky bar) along with superb cocktail but the best bit was the service. Adrian (our waiter) was so friendly, funny and attentive as were Jesus & Lujen who were also smiley and friendly. A must visit if...you’re in Arrecife. Keep up the great work. We were not hotel guests so cannot comment on the rooms but if they are the standard of this bar, I have no doubt they will be excellent.More

A drinks only visit and to see the views across the area. A nice rooftop restaurant and worth a visit if you are in the area. Seating is available for drinks only by the window areas with great views.

I really liked this place. The breakfast menu was lovely and very reasonable. The service was efficient and friendly. It has become a bit of a victim of its own success with the majority of diners hell bent on getting a sea view window seat...rather than just enjoying the meal and the lovely laid back vibe of the place. As a result we saw half a dozen pushy nannas moving from table to table (one lady three times and then complaining she wasn't served quickly when the staff lost track of her) There are only a handful of sea view tables. Diners need to give the overworked staff here a break and accept that not everyone can sit with their nose against the window. Just go and like we did, enjoy the food.More

Given a seat looking out at a brick wall . Ordering and service took a while. We asked to go and sit at the bar stools in the middle which was better and as people left we could walk around and look at the views.... The pina colada cocktail was underwhelming tasted of very little. The lifts were very slow. For those interested there is a separate smoking area with a cigarette machine.More

There's not much you can write about the food. The menu is rather limited, and the most you can say about it is that it's OK. The view from the 17th floor of the Arrecife Gran Hotel is a much better incentive to go there...and watch the sunset.More

Popped in for cake and a drink during our visit to Arrecife. Great view and good cake, although the service was a little slow.

Great views over Playa Honda towards the airport. Good tasty food, but at London prices and without the finesse expected from a five star hotel dining experience. Expresso Martinis were ordered off menu. Who doesn’t have this as a staple?

As ever immense views, some air conditioning was good. However, I do not know what has happened in the bar- unfortunately walked past the little sign that says wait here to be seated. The waitress gave us the eye in that she highlighted the sign...and we waited to be seated. Provided with the menus. Waited for around 15 mins to take 2 drink order. Watched the table who came in after us be served with their drinks whilst we were still waiting- unreal. So within 20-25 minutes we were served with a diet coke and a bottle of Heinekin! A bowl of nuts accompanied the drinks - old school and are we the only recipients of these- have they been out to other customers. Service was slow to say the least, the waitresses were talking amongst themselves when we went to the bar to pay and simply ignored us- not good service for this 5 star hotel! Be prepared for a long wait when visiting the hotel bar- enjoy the view - you are on holiday!More

The views are amazing and the food is not bad either. There are usually tables for lunch so there is no need to book and the restaurant is of course open to non hotel guests. The menu is okay for gluten free but there's not...a great deal of choice - salads, a few tapas and the pork cheeks which I had. The plate looked small but was actually surprisingly filling, although I would have preferred more veg. Service was a little slow as I recall and to be honest there are probably more authentic places, but the views can't be beaten.More
