Riu Buena Vista - Thomson Transfer Time

We are doing a Thomson package in a few weeks to the Riu Buena Vista Hotel. Does anyone know how long the Thomson coach transfer takes from Tenerife South airport? Just wondering whether to go for the taxi upgrade suggested by Thomson at £50 return.

Any other tips about this hotel would be appreciated. We are a family with a five year old daughter.

Thanks.

Hi Lisa, I'm sure someone locally will be able to let you how long in terms of time but to give you an idea, according to Thomson's website it's 30km

LOCATION

Complimentary shuttle bus 3 times a day to Playa de las Americas - limited places

Small manmade beach 200m away

30km from the airport

I hope that helps

Hi we are staying in Playa Paraiso at Floral Fiesta arriving on 31st December. We have booked a taxi from the airport but not through Thomson - it's a firm we've used before and they are reliable.

Just in case anyone is interested the coach transfer took about 20 mins as this hotel was the first drop off. The return journey was a bit longer as a couple of stops were made.

The taxi transfer wouldn't have been worth it for us.

Depends on how long you were sat on the coach at the airport waiting for all the people to get through baggage claim/customs?

Only 10 mins. We are usually among the last to exit the airport! Those quick off the mark might have been waiting a while.
