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.

Fantastic Hotel

We stayed here for a week in June and found this to be an outstanding hotel. The position is Ideal being right on the sea front. The main entrance to the hotel is at the rear with the reception, dining room, bars, entertainment etc all on that level which is level 6. You can then go up 3 floors to guest rooms. The top level I think level 9 is where the suites are located. Going down six floors from the reception brings you to the really nice pool area. There is a gate directly out to the walkway along the sea front. If you go left you get to the main resort of Costa Adeje about 10/15 mins away passing several shops and cafe/bars on the way. Then onwards to Las Americas about 30mins or so further on. Turn right out of the gate is a pleasant walk to La Calleta. The reception staff on arrival were outstanding and really made us feel special and very welcome. As it was a special occassion for us we were upgraded to a suite on the top floor with a nice seaview. The room was excellent. Clean and modern. Housekeeping was outstanding. We received wine and flowers to mark our two special occasions. Rose petals on the bed and specially folded towels made really nice touches. This was all fantastic and very much appreciated. Food in the dinning room was excellent with a huge choice. the service from the staff was also excellent. We ate one night in the Fusion restaurant and it was superb. would really recommend. The pool area was beautiful and as a guest in a suite we had a Balinese bed right on the seafront. The evening entertainment was quite low key but alright if you wanted a quiet night. Overall the recently refurbished hotel is superb, and in a great location. The staff are excellent and we would recommend this hotel without hesitation. We hope to get back again soon.More

1st time in a 5* hotel

This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in but it was not all about the facilities or the looks which were very impressive but the people and level of service, they made us feel not only welcome but special. Due to a very long delay we didn't arrival until midnight, not only did they welcome us by name but had kept two tables open with water and a cold buffet laid out. Next day we had a bottle of cava and fresh fruit left in our room to welcome us and same again on my birthday. We didn't have a problem with sun beds as there were so many available, some people did get up the crack of dawn but it was nice not having too ourselves. In past holidays sun beds have been a problem but that's due to hotels not having enough which was not the case here. The service around the pool, bars and dinning was spot on again due to having enough staff and all very polite and the service in the themed restaurant was amazing we had the steak which was cooked on our table. All the staff were amazing assets to the RIU group; Sabina and Alex deserve a special mention. The hotel had very visible security which in today's climate was very reassuring. Room service again amazing we had our own housekeeper Maria and the rooms were cleaned twice a day, towels changed and the shower was a joy too use. Evening entertainment was low key but sitting on the top of the hotel looking out at the bay this added to the mood. I have never returned to a hotel before but it's my 50th next year and this could be the 1st time I return to a hotel😀 Smith family More

Amazing family holiday!

Beautiful location, amazing food, super clean hotel with fabulously friendly staff, what more can I say ! Nothing was to much trouble from start to Finnish. The only disappointed thing for us was the diabolical evening entertainment which luckily finished every night by 10pm but this left us with very little to do with our young family, also be aware that the drinks are very very expensive but there is a supermarket 5 mins from the hotel which sells everything you could need. Would definitely recommend and will be returning. More

gemma t,


Just spent two wonderful weeks at the Riu Palace Hotel Tenerife. This is with out doubt a five star hotel. Food is superb with a huge choice at breakfast and evening buffet. All staff were delightful and so helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are spotless and furnished to a very high standard, our room was very quite throughout the day and night, we had a garden room with super views. Plenty of sun beds around the huge pool area, with an endless supply of clean dry towels when required throughout the day. Location of the hotel is perfect with lovely walks if you wish to visit some quality shops and restaurants. This is a hotel to return too.More

Another excellent trip, thank you

Our second trip here, we enjoyed it so much last year we immediately booked a return visit. We weren't disappointed, an excellent place for a family holiday - great location, great facilities, great food, superb friendly staff. I reckon we'll be booking up again!!More
