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 with possibly the most friendly staff anywhere!
This was our second visit to the RIU Palace, Costa Adeje, although we last went there five years ago. We needn't have worried - things were just as good second time around. The hotel has its own 'beach' area, although not directly leading to the sea (which is beyond the local coastal path). Nevertheless, it's a wonderful layout, with great views and 'ambience'. (There is a nice 'real' beach about a hundred yards to the east.) The staff are so friendly and helpful, that they obviously enjoy their work. The food in the main dining room is varied, wholesome and tasty. My wife, who does not eat meat but loves fish, had no problems at all. The second restaurant, called Krystals, overlooks the sea and is very nice. You can eat there every evening if you wish (booking required, but there are no limits). I would describe the menu as nouvelle cuisine; as in the main restaurant, this is also very nice, but is somewhat limited (and fixed). Therefore, like us, you will probably just use it once or twice during your stay. The 'resident' band in the 'theatre' is called Celebration. Although English is not their first language, their command of pop music in the English language is remarkable, and they are great entertainers. I have no hesitation in warmly recommending this hotel.More

A great week
had a great week here. Staff excellent and courteous and always willing to help. Food was buffet style for breakfast and dinner and you felt rushed as it was two sittings and if you were at first they needed to move people quickly. Had opened a new restaurant Krystal which was a'la carte but with limited menu which didn't change although what there was was good. Due for refurb starting in April will no doubt improve rooms although they were ok and cleanMore

just returned from an 11 night stay at this lovely hotel. have stayed in quite a few hotels in the Costa Adeje area but this was by far the best. It is beautifully located and the views are magical. The hotel is spotless and from the moment you arrive you are made to feel special. Check in was quick and a juice or champagne drink offered. The room we had was located on the 4th Floor and had a large balcony with beautiful views of the hotel grounds and the sea beyond. The Food was exceptional and so much choice. Every member of staff we met from the gardeners to the chamber maids to the restaurant and bar staff were so friendly and always with a ready smile and a greeting at whatever time of day. Special praise to our waitress Carmen who made our evening meal such a lovely experience. She had an amazing sense of humour and made us so welcome. The Deputy manager also made a point of greeting us to make sure we were happy with everything at the hotel and you felt quite special at being treated so personally. I can not find fault with anything at this lovely hotel and would definitely go back as soon as we can.More

Relaxing and enjoyable
The Hotel is spotlessly clean.The staff were exceptionally helpful, courteous and very happy. The food was of a very good standard. The pool area was superb. Plenty of Sun Beds with Mattresses and Parasol's overlooking the Sea. choice of Restaurants/Cafe Bar for Lunch..Good Service and again very good food. I was most impressed with everything in this Hotel and would definitely book again. One small but very important negative issue.... Our Beds in our Room were very hard, however this was resolved when I asked for Mattress Toppers. It made a big difference. Nothing was too much trouble...Incredible helpfulness.. Well done everyone at the Riu Palace Hotel.. You certainly made our Holiday.. Brian Jenkins BristolMore

An Excellent Break..
We needed to catch some early spring sunshine and in March where can you go but the Canary Islands? We had stayed at the Riu Palace in Fuerteventura last October and we had been impressed so The Riu Palace in Tenerife seemed a logical choice as we had decided on Tenerife this time. The food was really very good and whereas many hotels offering buffet style catering do so on the cheap, the Riu Palace offers a varied and exciting choice of quality cooking. The room was fine although a little more space would have been nice. The housekeeping service was excellent and the place was kept spotlessly clean. There were plenty of sunbeds and the pool and garden area was easy on the eye. The setting of the hotel was great with good access to the sea with good beaches, bars etc nearby. My only criticism of the facilities was that the wi fi only covers the reception / lounge area and the bandwidth was inadequate. The internet connection was pathetically slow. There is no wi fi facility in the bedrooms. I rather think that this will soon change as the hotel is apparently due for a major refit and I would expect this to be high on the list of priorities. The hotel tends to cater for ( how can I put this tactfully?), a more mature clientÃ¨le, but don't let this put you off. It's not going to be a first choice for families looking for children's entertainment, and the evening entertainment for adults is pretty mundane, but if you want good service from unfailingly polite and helpful staff , comfortable rooms and a little peace and quiet, then the Riu Palace fits the bill. We came away relaxed and rested and we would happily return...More
