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.
This is the best 4 star hotel we have ever stayed at. The staff were all very friendly and helpfful. The food was of a good standard and varied. We would certainly visit the hotel again. My wife got an eye infection, the reception staff got a doctor to see her in our room, the charge was very reasonable and cost less than visiting a hospital. ExcellantMore
Aug 2014 - fantastic hotel
Travelling as a party of 4, we had originally booked a double and a twin room and wanted the rooms close together for easy access for my mother. I emailed the hotel prior to our stay but they couldn't guarantee them close together due to the type of room. However on our arrival, we were offered a free upgrade to a suite on the 5th floor so that we could all be together which was fantastic as the rooms were large enough and we had a fantastic sea view with double balcony. The maid service was excellent and any request we made for extra towels etc were dealt with swiftly. We requested al late checkout on the day of departure due to a late flight and they were able to grant our request at no additional cost..thanks to Thomas on reception for arranging this for us as it made our last day all the more enjoyable as we didn't have to worry about anything.
The food was excellent with enormous choice on the buffet and the waiter service was brilliant. Very attentive and prompt. The choice at breakfast was equally good with sparkling wine should you want it...! On the second day we had champagne and a fruit basket in our room which was a very nice touch..
Service round the pool area cannot be faulted, even in the heat of the day the staff were smiling. Special mention for Sergio one of the waiters,, excellent service always with a smile.
Overall the only negative comment would be the reservation of sun loungers around the pool which I think the hotel should address. This is an excellent hotel which prides itself on going that extra mile, food second to none, great location as the beach on a stones throw away, close to bars and other restaurants.
I would highly recommend this hotel, very relaxing and enjoyable stay had by all.More

This was by far the best hotel we have stayed in for our family holiday. The hotel is getting refurbished in 2015 which will bring it up to date. This does not take anything away from its current status. We stayed in a ground floor family room which was great for access to the pool/beach. The restaurant serves up gourmet food every day. You are allocated a table to dine at for your evening meals for the duration of your stay which is another nice touch. The staff throughout the hotel were amazing, nothing was too much trouble for them whenever we needed anything. Location is great, walk left along the promenade and you reach Del Duque shopping centre, walk to the right and you are in Caletta in 15 minutes. Here there are great bars/restaurants where you can chill out and relax. Several local bars are nearby incliding Jack's Bar and Tiggy's where great hospitality greets you.
Without doubt we will return to this hotel.More

just got back and can say hotel was superb, standards very high, staff etc excellent and attentive, my only disappointments was the location, to get to shops etc was either bus or taxi both inexpensive but felt i'd liked to have a wander, beach not for me, it was small and rocky, weather i called it the 12 o'clock shadow as about then a solid clould would sit over Adeje and not break up for couple of hours, sitting in Las America we were in beautiful sun looking at Adeje the cloud just sat there, a bit annoying but when sun was out it was lovely and hot. Could've varied entertainment bit more got a bit boring, a week was long enough.More

Still at hotel enjoying a relaxing holiday. Hotel is a little dated but is being refurbished next year.
Bad points - entertainment basic only high point is the flamenco show.few facilities for sport or games. Wifi only in main lounge.
Good points - staff ,have not found any one here from the director to maintenance who is not helpful and smiling.views stunning.food choice and quality good.rooms not a bad size but the higher you go the smaller they are (but not too small) everywhere is spotless and clean.
All in all a great holiday!!!More
