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.

Good stay, pleasant hotel.
Me and my girlfriend have had a pleasant stay this week at the Rui Arecas. The rooms are above average, they have recently been done up so tv bathrooms are relatively new (we stayed on the second floor) the hotel has 3 pools one which is down by the beach and has a pool there too. The only thing I disliked about the hotel is the dinner buffet... it's carnage some nights (the food good for a buffet though) but apart from that myself and my girlfriend had a nice week. More
Had a really great four night stay at this hotel. The reception area is lovely and modern. Reception staff were really friendly which is unusual for Riu Hotels. The rooms are freshly decorated in a modern style. The room was cleaned to an excellent standard each day. Good air conditioning. I personally found the bed a little hard I'm sure if you asked they would put a mattress topper on it though. The bathrooms were great really clean with large walk in showers. Towels should be replaced they are a horrid brown colour and just don't look nice. Food was excellent. Great variety and really well presented. We have stayed in loads of Riu s usually the Palaces and the food in this hotel was actually better than most of them. The Spanish restaurant was really nice but the food I don't think was as nice as the main restaurant. The service in the restaurant was always excellent. The hotel manager was always around and they really do go out their way to make sure you have a great time. Pool area is really great and very clean. Hotel was full while we were there and the main pool area dose feel pretty crowded. Each day we used the beach club area which is such a great idea. Beds in this area are really spread out and it's really quite and relaxing. Also never had trouble grabbing a sun bed. My only negative if I had to have one criticism is the gym. It's absolutely rubbish. Riu persistently tile the floors in their gyms and then don't want to put In a rack of free weights In fear it will damage the tiles. Also I have no idea why the gym is locked at seven in the evening just leave it open there isn't anything that people could take. Overall I would definitely return to this hotel. I would love to see some improvements to the gym as it's well used. Other than that I really liked it here and would definitely recommend. More
Stayed at riu arecas for 11 nights early june,had an amazing holiday.On arrival we were greeted with refreshments and checked in very swiftly and amazed to find we had been upgraded to a room with a seaview as we were celebrating a special anniversary.Hotel is very modern,well decorated and immaculate.The room was lovely modern spacious and clean,large balcony,bathroom gorgeous with double shower.Restaurant plenty of seating inside and outside no problem finding a table,the food was amazing, always fresh and cooked at various stations,very up on ensuring food is at correct temperature and well stocked,the baked salmon was delicious.The pool area was very peaceful,very clean always free sunbeds,two large refreshing pools a nice pool bar or service to sunbeds if you wanted.Overall all for us the hotel was amazing, the only small downside for us was the entertainment was not very varied same band most nights.The staff are amazing and a credit to the hotel very friendly, attentive and professional sorry cant remember names but there were a few that stood out to us and made our holiday,the management seem to be part of the team which is nice to see,there always around the hotel ensuring it runs smoothly and are always very friendly to staff and guests alike.The resort is quiet but very beautiful.More

Hotel grounds and staff were fantastic rooms were really clean food good fine selection only bad thing is location could do with a few more bars and shops evening entertainment not great in the hotel had to visit costa edeje main resort for much better nightlife most nightsMore
Have just returned from a weeks holiday at this adult only hotel. We had stayed here previously before the renovation. They have made a fantastic job of the changes. Bathrooms are great with a double walk in shower, modern furniture although some is showing signs of wear already so not too sure how it will last. Towels are on the thin side although this seems to be quite common in the Canaries. Made use of the small gym although this was busy first thing in the morning. It has 2 cycles, 2 treadmills, 1 cross trainer and a couple of other machines. Restaurant was busy but we never had a problem in finding a table for 2. Very good service and very friendly staff in all parts of the hotel. Food was varied at the buffet and always hot which is not always our experience in Canaries hotels. We did not try the Spanish restaurant. Always managed to find a sunbed at the beach area which is reached by going down 76 steps. The snack bar at the beach offered cold sandwiches and various ice creams and drinks. Drinks in the bar were a standard price but the spirit measures were certainly generous. The peace and quiet at the hotel suited us (we are in our 50's) but I could understand if younger guests found it a bit too quiet. The evening entertainment consisted of the hotel band each night (1 singer, and 3 others playing instruments), the bar in the evening was always busy so the hotel is obviously doing something right in the evenings. The hotel is kept very clean in all areas. The Manager or Assistant Manager were always present in the restaurant in the evenings and were happy to talk to guests. Overall a fantastic hotel, great staff, well managed and the perfect place for a relaxing, quiet holiday. We hope to be back. More
