Hotel Riu Palace Tenerife  

With its plum sea-and-mountain setting, the Hotel Riu Palace Tenerife showcases this Canary Island at its best.

Views don’t come much better than this hotel, with volcanic slopes to the rear and sea views to the front. And location-wise, you’ve got a little beach on the doorstep and Costa Adeje is a 20-minute stroll away.

The hotel’s curved design means lots of the rooms look out to sea. And this place had a top-to-toe refurb in July 2015.

lesley h,

Wonderful hotel, definitely going back!

We knew we were on a winner as soon as we arrived, told to sit down and enjoy a glass of fizz while they sorted out our paperwork and whisked our suitcases up to our room! Not the usual fighting your way to the desk and dragging your cases in and out of the lift... Our room was very modern light and airy and overlooking the gardens and sideways to the sea. We were on the fifth floor which is one floor down from reception and the main restaurant. You then go down to the first floor for sunbathing by the swimming pools and to exit the gardens by a controlled gate to walk along the sea facing promenade. You'll soon find bars and restaurants and a few shops. The hotel is fabulous, very clean and the food is great, such a variety to choose from. You can also dine in the two separate restaurants, the food is excellent and at no extra cost but must be booked immediately on arrival...! The crowning glory for us is the staff. I have never encountered such friendly and happy people, everyone smiled and wished us good day. So nice and so helpful. The only weak point is probably the evening entertainment, not our cup of tea, staged in the lounge but in the reception/bar area early evening there was a pianist and saxophonist which was very pleasant. We usually walked along the promenade after dinner and relaxed in a bar with cocktails. Fantastic relaxing holiday, just what we needed. Will definitely return.More

Excellent hotel, fantastic staff. Brilliant holiday!

We have visited this area of Costa Adeje on 2 previous occasions over the last 4 years. Our last stay was at the La Plantacion which was great however the Riu Palace is without doubt our favourite and as and when we return to Tenerife, we will be staying once again without question. The hotel is fantastic with great rooms, lobby/ bar areas, pool, gardens and located in a great spot by the beach and within easy walking distance to La Caleta, Duque etc. As good as the hotel is, the staff really made our stay extra special. It was our first trip abroad with our 18month old little girl and any reservations we had soon passed. The food is fantastic and the service was amazing. We can't thank Carmen, Christian and the team enough! More

Another visit

Hotel is in an ideal spot. Lovely location, Easy walking along a promenade with shops and bars close by. Hotel has recently been refurbished and we were interested to see the changes as we have visited the hotel quite a few times. We were not disappointed. Calm and relaxing and many of the staff unchanged so that says a lot.More

Very Clean, Excellent Service

Me and my wife have just spent one week at the Riu Palace, and were very impressed, from the start, all the staff were very friendly, and accommodating. The hotel is well situated, on the sea front, although there is no beach, there are three pools, two fresh water, for families, and one salt water, for adults, and there are two places that you can get a bite too eat at lunch time, drinks are by waiter service, and they are constantly walking around. My one criticism would have to be, that the sun loungers are close together, when sunbathing, you are literally side by side with strangers, and if your unfortunate like us, we had a group of older couples, who decided it was ok to keep stripping naked to change. The site is very clean, well maintained and has all the facilities, dining is buffet style, with a great selection for all tastes, plus there are two restaurants, but these do need to be booked literally as soon as you arrive. Dining is breakfast and evening meal, we would have liked to have had an all inclusive option, unfortunately this Riu, does not provide this. Our room was spacious, with plenty of storage, a good size ensuite, with double basins and a large shower, but there is no tea or coffee making facilities. Getting around, from this hotel is easy, there is a taxi rank, about one hundred meters down the road, and then just passed that there is the bus stop, you just get on the 467, which goes all along the coastal areas, such as Playa las Americas and Los Cristianos, which is about thirty minutes on the bus. Plus you can walk along the seafront pathway, which is very pleasant, with plenty of cafes, bars and shops along the route, i believe, if you are very energetic, you can walk all the way to Los Cristianos. If it had not been for my minor niggles, the sun loungers on top of each other, no tea/coffee making facilities, i would have rated this establishment excellent.More
