For me the friendly and professional staff are what make this a wonderful place to stay. In addition the choice and quality of the food is first class. The hotel had recently been refurbished. I saw the plans on my last visit ( the third ) and can't wait to see the results in January 16, my next visit.

The Hotel Riu Arecas in Costa Adeje, newly refurbished, is a superbly managed adults only hotel, with excellent facilities, very good quality food and wine, and friendly, efficient staff. The location at the northern end of Costa Adeje provides a tranquil setting, still convenient for the shopping areas in Adeje and for the restaurants in nearby La Caleta. We enjoyed...

We arrived here the day after the Arecas re-opened after a fabulous refurbishment. They have done an amazing job and everything is brand new and up to date with, for us, the added bonus of being adult only. The rooms and the pool area have been updated to a very high standard. The staff were all very friendly and helpful...

Immaculate and very modern hotel. Fantastic pool areas close to hotel and there is also a separate beach club down a few steps on the coast. This is exclusively for use by Arecas guests and you need your keycard to get in. The infinity pool down here is a nice touch. Mainly German & Swedish guests with a few English...
