Riu Arecas Hotel

Picture breathtaking views, in-pool loungers and a beach on the doorstep. That’s what Hotel Riu Arecas has to offer. The modern, cruise liner-shaped hotel, with its mountainous backdrop and choice of three epic pools, is quite a place. This adults-only hotel has a great pool scene, a buffet restaurant and live entertainment in the evenings. Located in a swanky part of town, it’s only a few minutes in the car to reach the centre, and it’s a similar distance to the charming fishing village of La Caleta, with its cosy bars and eateries.

Overview of Costa Adeje

This part of Tenerife, on the sunny south coast, is gorgeous. The resorts are top-notch, as highlighted by Hotel Riu Arecas, and there are a host of waterfront restaurants and designer shops to explore. The vibe is laid-back, with a quiet confidence to the place, yet the 24/7 action of Playa de Las Americas is only up the road if you want to up the pace. Throw in one of the planet’s best water parks, and you have a town that’s quickly becoming a favourite for those planning holidays to Tenerife.

Things to do in Costa Adeje

If you like your water parks, Siam Park is a must. It has some amazing attractions, including a 28m slide. Yikes. It also has its own white-sand beach, calmer slides for the little ones and even hosts its own dance music festival. Elsewhere, Playa del Duque is one of the most stylish beaches around. There are loads of great seafood eateries down on the waterfront, and there’s also Mount Teide National Park, home to the world’s third-largest volcano. In summary, if you’re staying at friendly Hotel Riu Arecas, you’re ideally located to explore this brilliant resort, where the sun keeps shining, the cocktails flow and the beaches beckon. There’s plenty to experience if that’s what you want, yet so much natural beauty to bask in, if you prefer to simply relax.

Resort Summary

Tenerife’s balmy climate means that Costa Adeje is an all-year-round paradise within easy reach of the UK and the rest of Europe. The resort is the perfect destination for a long weekend or extended cheap breaks to Tenerife, but we recommend that you stay as long as possible.
