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.

Wonderful on the beach hotel !

Beautiful surroundings, right on the quiet beach! Just came back from very enjoyable and well deserved rest in Riu Palace. I was so pleased that we stayed here as the hotel is right on the beach, away from hustle and bustle of the busy Adeje yet within the walking distance of wonderful restaurants and shopping centres. The staff are wonderful, we had a mishap with our luggage and my husband’s jacket needed immediate dry cleaning when we arrived. The staff dealt with it straight away and the jacket was returned like new from dry cleaning! We took advantage of laundering service half way through the holiday and the items were returned the same day! Fabulous service and much cheaper than in UK. We took advantage of the spa, beauty therapist Sedonia is very professional. We were so impressed with her, that we had few treatments with her. Highly recommend her. Accommodation, if it was possible to steal the room, I would do it!!! Loved everything about the spacious, fashionably decorated, immaculate bedroom. The beds were very comfortable. Maids did great job as the room was always immaculately clean with clean towels and lovely bath robes! It was like magic, one used the towel and when we came back there were clean. Food and the waiter service nobody could fault it. With buffet service there’s always something that even the pickiest eater can find, but then again there are brilliant cheap restaurants on the beach front that one should visit! There are plenty of snack bars and if one is too tired or doesn’t want to interrupt the sun tanning session the waiter service is brilliant!!! I used them for drinks but with sandwiches I went to bar. Gardens must be the envy of many hotels in Tenerife as they are very spacious with no shortage of sunbeds. Four swimming pools plus paddling pool for toddlers so who can complain. Well I might as I am sissy and the infinity pool in adults only area was too cold for me, with all that sun the costs of solar heating for pool would be marginal. But this is my opinion, I do not like cold pools. Can’t comment on entertainment as we always went for a long walk after dinner. Would much rather prefer to sit on the beach listening to the waves breaking against the shore and watching the sunset. The whole staff from reception to maid are fantastic, thank you for making our stay pleasurable and for sorting our problems – like dry cleaning. Would we come back? Definitely!More

great referb

We visited in May this year, first time since the referb was finished and have to say its almost like turning the clock back 16 years to when the palace first opened. Everything about the changes are positive, the rooms have been brought up to date and the new bathrooms a big improvement. The quality of food has improved as this has been an issue for a number of years, being able to eat when you want suits us, food choice was typical for this type of hotel and like the new layout of the cooking and prep stations. Fewer problems with beds being reserved and not the mad rush at 7.45am when the pool used to open. New layout with the pools is fine and losing the area to the Arecas is not to bad, you just lose the feeling of openness that you got before with the large gardens and sand area. Great staff and many faces who had been there from the start are still there, one thing that has improved is house keeping, they visit the rooms twice or 3 times a day, refreshing towels and anything else thats needed. Also on this visit there were lots of families and quite a mix of ages with it being a spanish holiday at the time we were there. Only thing that would have made it better was the weather, other than that agreat break.More


Absolutely PERFECT

Having completed numerous reviews I have always found thing wrong but his hotel was 100% in everything. Location was right on the beach beautiful pools, beautiful gardens, snack bars, restaurants serving gorgeous food. Always waiters available everyone is polite, helpful and nothing is any trouble. The accommodation was large and immaculate. It seems that towels were changed almost as soon as you used them. It as my wife's birthday whilst we were there and the hotel gave her flowers, Prosecco in the room etc. I cannot find anything to criticize about this hotel and that really is a first for me.More

Good but could be better

We visited this hotel a couple of years ago before it was modernised and loved it. We went this time expecting great things, maybe we expected too much. Yes the hotel has been modernised but really its a bit of quick facelift. The interior fittings are now modern but in my opinion cheaper than the previous ones and it will date very quickly. The change to the outside finish is nothing short of an act of vandalism, what was once a nice looking building which gelled with the mountains and sea nicely is an art deco monstrosity. Infinity pools (adult only) are a nice touch and go a long way to helping the hotel cater to a wide audience. We went early July though and frankly the ambience of the hotel inside and out was more akin to a pre school kinder garden than an above average hotel which is what I expect fro RIU. I have nothing against children but the continuos noise of children screaming, running up and down corridors evening and morning is just not conducive to a relaxing break. Food in the main restaurant was at best average, we didn't try the other restaurants as we tend to enjoy the buffet style, here it was disappointing though, not much variety and quality not brilliant, I tended to eat fish as the meat was unreliable. Best beds we've ever slept on though ! In short we are regular RIU visitors, my advice would be go to the one in Madeira, nicer food better atmos and great VFM if you can get the all inc deal.Tenerife Hotel creates a micro climate of its own, but be warned, venture out and frankly the surroundings are dirty, scruffy and very run down. 17 Euros a week for a safe.More

Quick question

I am travelling here within a couple of weeks and have seen some people have stated that its only long sleeve shirts in the buffet area in the evening, is this true? or are you able to wear short sleeve shirts aswell?More
