This is a great hotel at a great location: bus station Rosa Center (line 471) is just 300m and beach is not too far either. Room is nice big and bed is very comfortable. Rooms are cleaned and towels are changed daily, and 2in1 shower gel and shampoo are also provided, as well as soap and hair dryer. Each room has a small balcony as well. Wifi is free of charge, but with one user name and password, only two devices can be connected, so if you want to connect a third one, you have to disconnect one of the other two. Food is very good, for each meal there is vide variety. Between 10 AM and 5 PM, there is a small restaurant next to the pool bar where you can get french fries, fried chicken, sandwiches, etc. In the bars, there are a lot of soft drinks, cocktails, mocktails, beer, spirits, wine, coffee and water. There are 5 pools, one of them is for adults only. There are a lot of sunbeds and umbrellas around the pools. Beach towel is also provided free of charge. The only problem is that on Saturday and Sunday, local residents can come in for a very cheap price, therefore weekends are very crowded and noisy. Everything is disinfected very frequently. Wearing mask is always mandatory, exceptions are when you are in your own room or in the pool or lying on your sunbed and of course when you are eating or drinking. Other than that, you must wear mask, even when you go to the trash with your used glass. At the main restaurant, there is a dress code for dinner: no pool short or sleeveless shirt is allowed for gentlemen. The hotel manager is very strict about this. Staff is very nice and helpful. Check out time is 11 AM, but if you want to stay longer, it is more than welcome: you can put your luggage to the luggage room at the reception and you can use the pool and keep your all inclusive badge until the end of the day, so until you have to leave, you can use everything. You can also book a so-called courtesy room for 30 mins where you can have shower and change clothes before leaving, and this is free of charge. Shower gel and towels are provided here as well.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Very clean, seemed extremely safe in Covid times. Pools are great, the water warm enough for April for adults and kids. The view from our balcony was fantastic. What I find really cool is that while enjoying the pools one can also have a breath-taking view over the ocean. Everything was right - room size, food diversity and quality, towels and shower service, staff etc. Very good value for money. A perfect choice for a relaxing stay. I’d like to go back and will recommend!

I’ve realised I’ve actually stayed here 3 times now since it reopened in October so it’s a win win for me! Now all brand new and modernised throughout with more swimming pools and restaurants added into the mix so worth considering for your next holiday. Affinity pool, activity pool, kids pool with slides and tipping bucket, 2 sea front quiet pools. Asian and Italian and Grill restaurants still self serve but need to book, main buffet and Pepes pool snack bar (self service) several bars around the hotel, RIU club, RIU stage, RIU fitness and gym and classes etc. Plenty to eat and drink here so you’ll never be hungry or thirsty! Love how they have Arehucas Rum too! I am just so pleased that my little ray of sunshine Dagois is still there keeping us all entertained! Can I just say that EVERYBODY NEEDS A DAGOIS IN THEIR LIFE! He is the absolute best! One of the most professional and brilliant entertainers I’ve come across. He works so hard both day and night and always gives it 110%! I just love how he always makes me happy and keeps me smiling and laughing none stop! A heart of pure gold that one! He even got me to try aerial yoga which even though is not for me (sorry for being a bad student!) I’m proud to say I gave it a go! He really does deserve a pay rise and a holiday does Mr DAGOIS! Throughout my stay I felt very safe in the hotel re COVID etc. Strict social distancing guidelines in place, staff doing a grand job and all very friendly, never seen so much cleaning going on, constantly saw housekeeping working hard wherever we went, the entire hotel was immaculate and everybody was behaving themselves wearing their masks properly, no questions asked. Temperature checks done on entry to restaurants both morning and evening. Loads of hand sanitizer stations around the hotel and restaurants and bars etc. All the staff in all departments are so friendly and always on hand to help including the big boss man so thank you! Rooms are fabulous. Big and spacious! Sunsets are beautiful here especially from our room 650 I think it was. Loved it! Big bathroom too with his and hers sinks in our room which makes getting ready a dream! Mini fridge with water, but if you like a morning brew in your room bring your kettle but there are drinking stations all around the hotel. I’m not a fan of the bathroom toiletries so best bring your own skin care and hair care products. Hairdryer is good! Comfy beds, loads of TV Channels, nice sofa area, good size balcony. Location wise it’s a beautiful quiet area which is what I like, but close enough to go to Costa Adeje if you want to go be in the tacky tourist trap. Lovely nearby mall for shopping, small natural beach next door, new promenade around outskirts of hotel still being finished off but will be fab when done. I live in Santa Cruz with my fiancé so I we just wanted a few days mini break and support local tourism the best we can. Overall it’s a very relaxed hotel for those who want great value for money and a drop and flop style holiday for all the family. It can be both casual and fancy whatever you want it to be. Fun for everyone! Hope you get to come and have a brilliant holiday here soon! You will love it! My advice is book with TUI for the best price, they have some great package holiday deals for this hotel.

We stayed here for two weeks in March. Check-in was smooth. We upgraded to a family room which was wonderful. There were only two of us and the room was huge. It was very clean as well. Housekeeping did a great job. The hotel is not in the best location. It was the only one open in Adeje due to Covid restrictions. The hotel is supposed to offer shuttle service to various locations but it wasn't running. A cab into Playa de las Americas cost about 15.00 euros one way. The food was repetitive. Breakfast for sure never varied. We stayed in a Riu in Lanzarote in January and it was much better. One restaurant was open (Dolce Vita) on Friday and Saturday nights. You need to reserve at reception. It was very nice and everything was served buffet style. We tried about 3 of the poos and they were all freezing. There is no way they could have been heated. Evening entertainment was good. Drinks were what you would expect of an AI resort. Big drawback for me in terms of relaxing was the number of unruly, screaming, shrieking children. Just awful. The buffet restaurant was a zoo. They also ruin the entertainment by running and pulling cushions off of chairs. The problem is not addressed. I won't return.

I think I must have been staying in a different hotel to all the other people who have written recent reviews... To start with the positive: Recently completely refurbished, the hotel is beautiful, especially the reception area. It is clean, bright and the rooms are comfortable, if a little bare (probably a COVID measure). Bar staff (especially a lovely man from Uruguay) and most restaurant staff were lovely and friendly. Cleaning and sanitary is great. No COVID fears here, which was so nice and reassuring. Cleaning staff are friendly and efficient and super flexible with timings for coming to our rooms as they had to work around our son. Pools are lovely - 5/6 in total. One adult-only pool, all very clean (see note about baby pool later on though). We had a really nice room, at the back of the hotel, with a great view. Can imagine the rooms around the pool would be too noisy. But then... The food is downright shocking! We could not believe that such a quality was being served to human beings! Most of it was inedible (my husband literally spat out a cream-filled cake as it tasted like dishwater) and the wine was completely undrinkable. The cocktails at the pool bar were basically made out of slushies with a dash of alcohol poured in (best stay with the gin & tonics and, surprisingly, the cava was alright. Only the buffet restaurant was open (due to COVID) which makes no sense to me as the hotel was reasonably full so at least one other restaurant could have been open per night (and be careful - no communication anywhere about this). Buffet was self-serve and believe me, the tongs and spoons were not being changed regularly enough to merit a job-well-done on COVID measures! Hand sanitiser given and temp taken before entering the restaurant for breakfast and dinner but not for lunch... shrug... We found Blend Coffee & Food just up the road which was a godsend for our morning coffee and cake. We also rented a car and went out for either lunch or dinner everyday... the wallet does not thank you. While a lot of the staff is great, others are just... urgh... one lifeguard in particular is just a proper jobsworth picking on things that make no sense when perhaps he should be making sure that people adhere to the 2m rule? Overall, there is just no attention to detail. My sleeping baby was woken more than once because the sunbeds were being put away (I mean, I should say that they were being thrown away...). Just look around you, guys... Reception staff... oh my god! I suppose it's not a surprise when the more senior staff at the reception have such huge attitude problems. Everything was someone else's thought (basically the customers) and please don't spend 5 minutes telling me the baby pool IS heated when it is clearly a block of ice... and then try and explain to me how it can't get that warm as it also depends on the outside temp. Yes, I know, thanks. It's such a shame as I'm sure that there are so many skilled individuals on the island. Hire them instead! It's baffling as more than once a bunch of suits were walking around. I don't get how they don't see it. Oh yeah... the baby pool was not heated so don't be told otherwise. To be honest, I could go on but don't see there's much point. We still had a great holiday and very much appreciate being able to get away during these times. It's just a shame to have left so disappointed and we just wish the hotel would have been up to the standard we were promised, especially as food is usually a very big part of our trips. Nevermind - Lots of lovely restaurants not too far away :D Note: I won't comment on the fitness or kids club as I didn't make use of them but I must say that all the staff seemed very friendly and approachable. Also my comments on staff of course come with exceptions. Some hotel/reception staff was great, others not so much.

Dear Luxxie1983, Thank you very much for choosing Riu and for sharing your review about your last stay with us. While we are happy to learn you enjoyed our friendly service, cleanliness, fantastic views and you felt safe during your stay, we regret that we could not fulfil all your expectations. As gastronomy is one of the most important aspects in an all-inclusive hotel, it is very disappointing to hear that our food and drinks could not reach your personal taste. We are however very surprised by your words about our Front desk staff and sorry to hear that you did not feel well attended by them as it was surely not the intention to seem rude in any. Please rest assured that we have shared your comments with the corresponding departments to reassure that standards are being met and we hope to have the opportunity to host and better serve you in the future. We remain with best wishes, Hotel Riu Buena Vista Online Reputation Manager
