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 is getting a top-to-toe refurb for July 2015.
Absolutely fantastic hotel, the staff are very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent with lots of choice all expertly prepared. We wanted accommodation in a quiet area away from the main resort and this suited us perfectly. There were lots of sun loungers around the 3 pools and we never had a problem finding a spot.
We booked a taxi to Siam Park (15 euros each way for a 7 seater) this is well worth doing especially if you have teenagers. Bear in mind that there are no dedicated children's activities at this hotel, but that wasn't a problem for us.
The rooms are cleaned everyday, again by very friendly staff, they were very comfortable with both air conditioning and a central ceiling fan.
English TV channels are a little limited, if you want to use the TV screen, take a USB stick for movies.
Wifi is available throughout the hotel including the rooms and is free :)
Based on this experience, I would definitely consider another Riu hotel in the future.

Relax and enjoy
Excellent accommodation. Staff are courteous and friendly, nothing is too much for them. Food is enjoyable, you never leave hungry. On the promenade and beach. This is a quiet place so if you are looking for a busy night life you need to travel down the coast.
Entertainment repetitive and needs improving. One excellent group singing Temptation and Gospel songs.
Apart from the entertainment in the hotel, value for money.More
Amazing hotel, great service, great food.
Stayed here for our Honeymoon and were really impressed with everything. Hotel has been recently refurbished to an excellent standard. The service was always excellent and the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Room was very smart and modern. We spent a lot of time in the adult only infinity pool right by the beach over looking the sea. The location is great, a bit away from the main strip so nice and quiet but still within walking distance to the main beaches and activities etc. Food was amazing, high standard cooked right in front of you for the buffet, waiters were very attentive. No complaintsMore

Sad to be leaving
My family and I are sitting in the lobby waiting for our airport transfer and Im reflecting on our week here. It's my first time to Tenerife and to a Riu hotel and I'm so impressed I had to write a review. The Hotel has just finished a refurb and looks great but it it's the staff that makes this place so special. Andreas at reception needs a special mention as he is superb. The food is lovely and I think the restaurant staff are in competition with each other as to who is more welcoming! Loved our time here and can't wait to return. More
We are lucky enough to have stayed at some very nice hotels in Europe and the Carribean,,, this Hotel has just reopened after a refurb/ upgrade,, it's gone from a 4* to a 5* as our taxi driver informed us, lovely man btw!
The staff are all top quality, friendly, informative and nothing is too much trouble, safe didn't work on first night, guy came out in 10mins of reporting it, didn't have dressing gown for daughter, first world problems lol, one appeared within 20mins of asking,,,
The pool is lovely and just the right temp, the sunbeds are plentiful, we walked into playa del duque this morning, lovely market on a sat and Thursday, got back at 1, taxi cost 5 euros, great value because we bought water, juice and a smidge of booze at the supermarket, very heavy!
Food at breakfast is amazing, same for dinner,,, my only gripe with the Riu chains is no tea/coffee facilities in the room,, such a simple and widely accepted custom!!! Please give us tea/coffee and a kettle Mr Riu!!!!More
