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.

Nice and clean rooms. We stayed on 4th floor and had an amazing view of the pool area and the ocean. Great restaurants. Each day we enjoyed the most delicious food from the buffet and there was so many different things to choose from. Last but not least we were met with the best service all around the hotel. We will definitely come back! More
We stayed at the RUI Palace 27th January to 3rd February 2017. Unlike what some people are saying about the noise on the beach, we didn't find it a problem. There were two mechanical diggers digging the rocks out of the sea to allow a new beach to be made. We never saw anymore than one lorry at a time. From the swimming pool area we heard nothing, in fact it was quite fascinating watching the diggers lifting these huge rocks from the sea to make a new beach in front of the hotel. How nice it will be to come back in years to come and know that we saw this beach being made. The hotel itself is outstanding and immaculate. Lovely polite staff who always greet you when they see you. We stayed in room 230, what a lovely room with perfect views of both the sea and as far as Los Cristianos. If we come here again we will request this room. Buffet restaurant was ok, not particularly hot and very samey. We used the Spanish restaurant once, the steak was very nice and cooked on lava rock to your liking at the table. We ate out a couple of times because we were not impressed by the food. Entertainment was very poor, we sat outside but it was still very loud and much the same every day. The pools were great and warm. Poolside food was probably the best there. Will definitely be back but not for the food. Downside you do have to pay for the use of a safe.More
Excellent hotel and facilities
Our first visit to Tenerife and we were delighted with this hotel. Very helpful and attentive staff, attractive and comfortable bedroom. Excellent food in buffet style dining room, so good we ate here each night instead of going out. Great situation on seafront. Three outside heated pools and one indoor heated pool. Well equipped small fitness room.More
This is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in, upgraded to a very modern standard, rooms are a great size & very comfortable & pretty, food is amazing. There is plenty of outside space with no fuss getting a sunbed which are very comfortable, the views are amazing as the hotel looks onto the sea. The hotel is situated between La Caleta which is a gorgeous little place and only a 5 min walk along the front, and the heart of Costa Adeje, which is approx. 30 mins walk, there is also several restaurants & plenty of shops less than 5 mins, can't fault this hotel & looking forward to my next return, hoping it will be soon. Definitely recommend this hotel.More
Very relaxing holiday
Stayed for a week from Feb 2 to 9. As there are so many hotels to choose from, my wife and I selected the Palace. We have been staying at other locations in Riu Palace categories (Lanzarote, Jamaica, Mexico, DR, ...) and were curious about this one. Just let me say that the Riu's at Jamaica and Mexico were much better (food, room, quality, price). If you want more lux, choose the Iberostar Anthelia, Bahia del Duque or Sheraton (neighbour hotel). One thing that bothered me, reason why I did not give rating 5, was that we had to pay for the safe. Seriously, is this not included in a 5* ? At other Riu's this was included and we never experienced this in other 5* hotels. Is this some common policy only used at Tenerife ? Prices for food and drinks were reasonable. I very much liked the "promenade" which starts from the Sheraton hotel all the way to Los Christianos (8km). FYI a bus ticket for 2 persons from the hotel to Los Christianos is only 2,90 Euro. Speed of wifi in the hotel is very good. Staff is very friendly. Service very good. Enough sun loungers and towels. Well maintained pool and garden. Rooms are modern with excellent bath room (walk in shower). Dining is open sitting with no reserved seating (except for the 2 speciality restaurants), both inside and outside. It can be crowdy (even in February). If you like to sit outside be sure to bring a sweater, cardigan/jacket or shawl (for the ladies) because it can be rather fresh in the morning and evening. Ok, currently there is some noise (moving big rocks) from the works at the beach (they are constructing a breakwater) but they seem to operate only during low tides, as the bulldozers are going into the water and not during the weekend. During our stay we had more noise from lawn mowers than from the construction work. The Krystal restaurant was "embedded" or squeezed into the main. It has a limited number of seats (26) and limited selection on the menu. But you have the impression the be locked in. So we did not try it. Buffet and service in main restaurant is ok and what should be expected from a 5*.More
