This is our fourth visit to Riu Arecas and it just gets better. It has been refurbished since our last visit two years ago. It's now smarter in the reception and the pool area is bigger. The best addition is the 'beach club', a new area by the sea with sand, sun beds, bar and infinity pool. A warning though,...

Our week's stay was everything I'd hoped. A peaceful and at night a romantic setting. Friendly staff who were obviously very well trained, except for the Thomson rep. So much choice at breakfast and dinner. Beautifully clean everywhere. We preferred the resident band to the guest acts. The girl singer was relaxed and unforced and we enjoyed several shuffles around...

We visited for 2 weeks in January of this year and were really impressed with everything about the hotel and its position. There could be issues with those less mobile because of where it is, quite a few steps up and down to get to the promenade. However, there is a bus service just outside the hotel grounds and taxis...

My husband and I stayed at the Riu Arecas end of September beginning of October 2016 and had a lovely stay. The rooms were immaculately clean with bedding and towels changed daily. We did not see one bug, which is rare in hotter climates. The staff were lovely and could not do enough for you. The pools at the hotel...

Plus points: Great location Adults only Superb service, nothing was too much trouble Delicious food Terrific "Beach Club" Things RIU might consider doing to improve the place: Dumbells in the gym, the lack of free weights for someone who doesn't do machines is a sad oversight Poolside and Beach Club beds have stretched and make lying comfortably difficult, either tighten...
