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.

Lovely hotel and resort
Just returned from a great holiday at the Riu Palace, a spotlessly clean hotel with fantastic food and attentive staff. Slightly disappointed that the pools are salt water, but this is a minor negative against all of the positives. Costa Adeje itself is a lovely resort with a long, interesting promenade. Would definitely return.More
Return visit in lieu of beach renovation disappointment last November.
Love everything about this hotel. Staff in every area of the hotel are superb. The director and hotel manager are so approachable and it is a pleasure to thank them personally for the little gifts in the room now and again. Happy to say that the beach renovations noise did not interfere with having a superb and tranquil stay in any way.More

Very Good Location
The hotel is situated adjacent to the beach and coastline walkway. The staff in all areas of the hotel were very friendly and polite and were always helpful with any enquiry I made. We had a standard room at the side of the hotel which was very nicely appointed as one expect. However, there was no kettle in our room and this I believe, is true of all other rooms. The dining area is mainly enclosed on the sixth floor but we ate in the alfresco are which has super views over the coast. The food was excellent with a good variety of dishes. We ate in the 'Krystal' restaurant on one evening, which has waiter service and a fixed menu but again, excellent food. There are several pools and no issues with loungers and sunshades. Towels are provided at poolside and can be changed as required. The gym is adequate for 'normal' use and has several pieces of equipment covering cardio and resistance training. One word of caution. I would advise anyone departing the hotel after 6pm on their last day, to be sure of the situation regarding dining. We were told by a holiday rep that we would be able to eat on our last day, free of charge but this was not the case. We were put in the embarrassing situation of being approached between courses and informed by a manager, that we would have to pay for the final meal as it was not part of the holiday cost. As we were a couple the bill was manageable but if we had been paying for a family then I may have to have washed a few dishes. Anyone who is familiar with the Adeje area knows that there are lots of nice hotels and boutique shops clustered together, which with the great weather all make for a lovely place to stay. The beach outside our hotel was fenced off and inaccessible as it was being 'improved' but there are plenty of others that can be used and lots of bars, cafe's and restaurants too.More
maintaining the good standards but a blip re guest room
Good to see the standards set following the referb are being maintained, the choice and variety of food at meal times, breakfast and dinner continue to be better than average for 4 star hotels. Lots of fresh food cooked in front of you and only had to wait a couple of times for what I wanted, but would rather have it that way to have it freshly cooked. Some new faces in the dinning room and some days service was a little slow, especially in the new area. Breakfasts became a problem with a shortage of staff pre 8.30am so as this has been mentioned by others they may need to look at staff rotas. Reception good, housekeeping good usual sparkling wine and fruit left in the room and some guests received beach bags and some did not, never asked why but you would think they would put one in every room. Pool area kept clean as usual though the infinity pool was cooler than the main pools. Area around the infinity pool was quieter for those looking for some relaxation. The works on the beach is nearing completion and they are just dumping sand now which was only a problem when it was windy and blowing in the direction of the hotel. Two issues to share first someone who had been smoking must have thrown their cigaret over the balcony and we ended up with a smouldering palm tree outside the room, when reported they reacted quickly as you would expect, even the manager came on scene, so smokers extinguish your cigarette properly. The main and only complaint from a number of regulars is they have changed the time from when you can book the guest room, but did not tell us when we checked in, we were all told no changes. However you can reserve the room from 6.00pm the night before you depart. So lots of unhappy regulars who checked out on Friday 12th. Still one of the best all round hotels when you look at the offer keep up the good work but don't take your regulars for granted.More
