This adults-only hotel gives you a triple helping of pools, and it’s just a short walk to the beach.
This huge building is shaped like a cruise liner. On one side you’ve got the Adeje mountains and, on the other, views of the Atlantic Ocean. Within the hotel, there's a trio of pools and a buffet restaurant.
The hotel’s in an upmarket part of Costa Adeje, just a five-minute drive from the centre. And it’s a five-minute cab ride in the other direction to La Caleta, a fishing village home to bars and restaurants.

Four giant stars
Have just returned from two weeks in Riu Arecas. All the staff are so friendly, helpful and courteous. The standard of cleanliness is excellent. Everywhere is so clean. The dining room staff are very welcoming and the selection and standard of food is first class. There should be something for everyone. We used the Beach Club area which has an infinity pool. Plenty of sun beds with palm trees adding extra shade as well as the static sunshades. The bar there provides plenty of refreshments. The toilet facilities were cleaned by staff with regularity. The only drawback are the 76 steps down and back up to the hotel. The only point I have to mention was the constant noise from a generator under our room. 1086. We did enquire what the noise was and were told we could view another room. However this room was above and only a few doors along from the generator. We decided to stay where we were. On our return later that day there were flowers in the room as a goodwill gesture. We would most certainly return to this hotel in the future, but would not want the same room!More

Fourth return in one year.
My husband and I returned from the Riu Arecas recently following two perfect weeks here. As it was our fourth visit in a year something must be drawing us back and I would say that it is the lovely people that we meet and the fantastic staff who go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. We would like to see ice cream corners at the ice cream station as we have been to other hotels which do this and it makes a lovely touch to relax outdoors following our meal in the gardens in the sunset. Thank you to everyone for such a lovely holiday. We will see you all soon.More
Very good, again!
A adults only hotel, we came here earlier in the year for 11 nights and have now just finished a 14 night stay. As before we are very happy customers. The location, staff and service has been excellent. Food, half board, is buffet style although there is an a la carte Spanish restaurant as well. All meals, and restaurant service, very good. We did eat out on 2 nights just for a change but this our preference rather than anything adverse with the hotel food. Rooms are good, as is maid service. Note: you need to use a provided card in the room to request a change of sheets. There are 2 good pools, plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas, and other areas of shade. Comments here have mentioned the hotel beach being still under construction. This is still the case but the pool area is well away so no noise or dust. There are two really good beaches in short walking distance if needed. From the back of the hotel there is a couple of mile promenade to walk into Americas proper and then onto Los Christianos if you want to stretch your legs. The 467 bus costs c.3 euros one way and brings you right back to the front door of the hotel.More
Recently returned from a weeks holiday at Hotel Arecas, hotel very clean, all staff very efficient, polite and friendly. Really nice walks to La Caleta in one direction or as far as Los Cristianos in the other, also bus stops at the front of the hotel to Los Gigantes, Las Americas or Los Cristianos etc. Steps to seafront could present a problem to some people. The only criticisms we have are 1) the beach was a building site while we were there not noisy or anything just not a pleasant view. 2) We would have appreciated a couple of bottles of water in the room on arrival. Other than those minor issues it was all good.More
Lovely hotel, just a bit too far away from the main centre
Just arrived back from the Riu Arecas and can't fault the place for cleanliness, food, value for money and hospitality. The hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard and the rooms are lovely and clean. We had a 2nd floor room overlooking a car park but with a brilliant view of the sea. Although we overlooked a car park the double glazing was good so we didn't hear any cars. The only downside to this hotels location is that there's are only a couple of bars and 2 supermarkets in the area and no entertainment in the bars to call much. there is only. 1 bar called Tiggys that has a singer on every night but Sunday. There is a resident band in the hotel, but that is all. We did not see anything else advertised in the hotel in the way of entertainment. If you wanted a bit of nightlife it meant a 20 minute walk to Toreviscus or 30 minutes to Port Colon, or a bus ride costing 2.90 per couple to San Eugino. If you go to Playa de las Americas make sure you tell the taxi to go throu San Eugino on the way back as going via the motorway which is the way they will try and take you is 2 euros more.More
