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 is getting a top-to-toe refurb for July 2015.

Great Hotel

We had booked a sea-view room - when we arrived we got a free upgrade to a suite - brilliant! Then when we told the hotel that it was our wedding anniversary they gave us free wine and fruit in the room. The room was great with a separate sitting room and a walk-in closet. Food in the main restaurant was great - there is also a gourmet restaurant for no extra charge with views overlooking the sea. The guests were mainly in the 50-70 age range and a mix of nationalities. We met a couple who have been to the hotel twice a year for the last seven years. Overall a great hotel to which we will return.More

Bring your mountain climbing boots!

'Old style' hotel with super efficient welcoming staff, immaculate grounds, 3 pools, loads of sun loungers some in man made sandy area and a reasonably varied selection of well prepared food in a self service resturant. The room we had ,508, was fine. A bit dated but with everything you need. The hotel is closing 2015 from April to July and massive changes are taking place. New designed rooms, more pools, new reception area etc.Its a major piece of building work and I would check first if your thinking of going August to make sure it's all completed. The biggest problem with this Hotel is its location. Other reviewers have mentioned this and I agree. At least a 20/30 min walk to the main resort area. Most of it uphill with loads of steps. It was tiring in the winter sun, so unless your a fitness fanatic I would allow for a taxi back. There is a small beach area just outside the hotel so it might be a good idea to use that. Bus tip. You can catch a 416 into Los Cristianos. This involves walking up a steep slope or dozens of steps to reach the bus stop. If the gate to the Rui hotel opposite is open use that and cut through the hotel. You will come out in between 2 bus stops. We found if you go to the left hand one, slightly further to walk, we always got a seat on the bus. At 1 euro 70 its a cheap way to get to Los Cristianos.More

Memorable stay

Great service from the time we checked in at reception until the time we left.the room was really nice with plenty of room for clothes.the only drawback was that the room we had didn't get any sun.the staff were excellent and are obviously trained to a high standard .there were plenty of beds to choose from and you had easy access to the sea and promenade.definately the best hotel we have stayed in Tenerife .More

Wonderful Staff, Great Stay

We stayed for 1 week at the beginning of November having emailed the hotel in advance as we were both celebrating birthdays. We were given an excellent room on the fourth floor looking out to the gardens and sea. The room was very clean and although a little small, well laid out with plenty of wardrobe space. We thought the price of drinks at the hotel (incl mini-bar) and for use of the safe was reasonable. The overwhelming positive about this hotel is the staff. Waiting staff, chefs, maids and receptionists all spoke to us. We found them all to be cheerful and helpful. Even the management introduce themselves to guests. We were half board and there is a good selection of food at breakfast and in the evening (large choice at salad bar, cheeses, cold meats). Rabbit, mussels and large prawns were served. We thought the quality of food in the restaurant was good. We ate dinner at the 8pm sitting rather than the 6pm sitting. On our birthdays we ate at Krystal which was a cosy and pleasant dining experience. Gardens are extremely well kept. What we liked was how peaceful it was by the pool, no blearing music like at some hotels. I personally did not enjoy the food at the pool-side cafe. There were plenty of sun loungers and we had no issues with this. Some of the entertainment could be improved as could Wifi connection (is only available in main reception). Overall we had a fantastic, relaxing holiday at this hotel and will definitely return.More
