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. They’ve all got a classic feel to them, with carved wooden headboards and tie-back drapes. And this place is getting a top-to-toe refurb for July 2015.

Lovely hotel, staff very very helpful, cannot do enough for you. Excellent location, fantastic view. Will definitely revisit. The Krystal a la carte is worth a visit, we were treated like royalty. We have stayed at a Riu hotel before and on booking we are always sure of an excellent holidayMore

Tracey P,

Went with husband for quiet, relaxing holidays - absolutely perfect hotel to unwind. Rooms good size, bed comfy, bathroom reasonable with good shower over bath, all with balconies and sea facing. Very clean throughout. Great 5* service. Staff very helpful and always smiley. Great food. Definitely will be back.More

Treated Like Royalty!

There's not really much to say other than staff / service were exemplary. Hotel clean / welcoming and the room had a super view and room service excellent. The menu was surprising varied for a buffet type style and the cooking was to a high standard. The Krystal restaurant is a must, try a window seat at your peril!! Surprisingly, hotel prices for drinks were generally cheaper than local bars. Im going to be picky and say that the only negative was the regular entertainment was too loud and repetitive. We wish to thank Rui & staff for a fantastic stay and we will certainly visit a Rui venue in the near future.More

still maintaining standards

We stayed during the middle two weeks of July. We have stayed a number of time since it opened. The location is excellent. The rooms are clean and serviced everyday. A fair choice of food in the self-service restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. However after two weeks the dinner choice was getting a bit repetitive. The pool is kept very clean however the paving surrounds need attention as stones are lifting and sinking in lots of places. The management do nothing about sunbed reserving, the latest arrival we saw was a family of 6 arriving at their beds at 3pm after a day trip. It is not only the Germans by the way. There were more Brits, about 20% at the hotel this year with young families so it has improved in that regard especially as we had a 13 yr old who found holiday buddies for the two weeks. The RIU staff used to be renowned for the cheerfulness and helpfulness, the old-stagers at the hotel are still first class but some of the newbies were off-hand and not averse to showing their disinterest in working in the service industry. In a review below DirkHanx says the music is too loud, most of the guest bands performed in the theatre and the hotel band performed on the terrace and finished at 11:30 each night. The hotel is due for a refurbishment next year. Good points: Ruben and Carmen in the restaurant, almost old-friends over the years they are as cheeful as ever, Said in the pool bar attentive and friendly. The deputy manager who was here there and everywhere and didn't appear to take a day off during our stay. Bad points: The blatant lies we were told about the air-con fully functioning in our room, the director scowling from behind the breakfast or lunch table.More

Super Hotel!

This is without doubt a special hotel. I had made a request for a ground floor room unaware that this was a more expensive option. Unable to grant my request, I was given the choice of two different rooms, both of which were upgrades, andimmediately chose the one with balcony and sea view. As it was, I was unaware that the Hotel was built on a slope with Reception on the 7th floor accessed at street level at the front, while the delightful pools and gardens were reached by lift down 6 floors at the back. The resort area has three pools with plenty of sun loungers, but if you want a front line view you might have to resort to towel tactics (something of which I do not approve) The snacks available are of gourmet standard, accompanied by very speedy willing service either in the snack bar itself or directly to your spot in the sun! This whole area opens on to the Promenade by a gate, the key to which is given to you at check-in. The ocean views are quite beautiful with quiet stretches of pebble beach. The food and service in the Hotel Restaurant is second to none. The buffet style food is exceptional and the variety limitless for all five courses! The standard and quality of the food had a home made taste, despite the industrial size catering task in view of the size of the Hotel. Where else would you enjoy a Breakfast with Spain`s special export, bubbly Cava, every morning? Don`t hesitate book now!More
