When it comes to sea views, this hotel doesn’t miss a trick – the 2 pools and themed restaurant soak them up.
This hotel is in a quiet spot with a mini-beach a few steps away. The courtesy bus makes regular trips to Playa de las Americas – and from there it’s a 5-minute walk to Siam Park, Tenerife’s famous waterpark.
The 2 big pools really make the most of the sea views. One of the pools is an infinity number, too. On the food front, there’s a buffet restaurant plus a snack bar that changes to a themed place at night.

Nice hotel, but very quiet surroundings
We had a family room which consisted of a living room with separate toilet, and a bedroom with the bathroom. As there were 3 of us in the room, the hotel provided us with a single fold out bed (which my sister says was very uncomfortable!). The main beds were ok, but not good for people with back problems like myself. The balcony was lovely and big and provided a picturesque view of the ocean. The hotel itself was nice, 2 huge swimming pools, big restaurant, and shops on site, including a mini supermarket. Only downside was the wifi, 20 euros for 7 days, but can only access from 1 device and only in the hotel lobby. It was cheaper for me to use an add-on on my mobile phone contract! Food in the restaurant was nice and varied, and provided us with gluten free bread when we asked for it. We travelled as a group of 5 young girls (aged between 18 and 23) and wanted a quiet break with opportunities to go to the town if we wanted to. The hotel is very family orientated and situated in a very quiet town, but it offers a free shuttle bus to Playa de las Americas during the day which is very handy. If you miss the shuttle. The 472 bus drops you off a 2 minute walk from the hotel for â¬2.10 (or a taxi cost us â¬21). The entertainment team at the hotel were all very friendly, unfortunately we discovered all the activities a little too late in to the holiday. They perform shows in the Salon bar which were entertaining. Overall, a nice holiday and nice hotel, but if you want a more lively atmosphere, stay closer to the towns. If you want a quiet break, it's a great place to stay. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would go back again :)More
Amazing amazing stay!
We were meeting our extended family in Tenerife and Riu made our vacation absolutely fantastic! We had 2 adjoining villas with gorgeous views of the ocean. The villas, the pools, the food everything was amazing. More so the staff. They went out of their way to make our vacation memorable. Thanks Riu Buena Vista!More

"Laid back and relaxed, without the Glitz and bright lights of neighbouring resorts"
Just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Riu Buena Vista. Hotel is a fairly large complex situated on the quiet sea front with entertainment for all. Hotel in general - Hotel is exceptionally clean and the staff are excellent. The restaurant staff are exceptional and can never seem do enough for you, they seem to constantly be on the move ensuring that all is as it should be. Accommodation - Rooms are large and airy and spotlessly clean. All have large balconies if you wish to sun bathe alone! Sea views can be excellent, dependant on room location. Only disappointment with the room, the camp bed that was provided for our 16 year old son to sleep on - not really good enough for a 4 star hotel. I am sure other families may feel the same. Our son resorted to sleeping on the settee with the campbed mattress on it, which he found comfortable enough, for the duration of our stay. Location - fairly quiet location, which suited our needs. If you want the bright lights then go to Las Americas. In conclustion, we have had an excellent 2 weeks break and would definately use this hotel again. Staff are excellent and hotel is modern and has a relaxed vibe. We would have rated this hotel as five star, but for the 'campbed'. Other family members have booked for Sept...on our recommendation.More

This is our third visit to this excellent All Inclusive RIU hotel. As in my previous visits the service from all the hotel teams, from the Management down, was faultless. Food and drink were top quality for a 4 star A.I. Hotel and the cleanliness was second to none! As previously stated the location is peaceful but a short taxi ride 12 euros each way gets you into the heart of Playa de las Americas which has more than you could ask for, and not to have it "on the doorstep" was a God send!! Since our last visit we have noticed improvements in many of the areas i.e guidance to tables in the restaurant, Cava brought round at meal times (including breakfast) and a general move upwards in the already exccellent customer service. Once again a perfect fortnight in the sun and we will be returning in the next 6 months.More

We stayed here in the first week of July. We were slightly disappointed when we got to our room because we requested a pool/sea view and got the opposite. The room was very clean but tired and there were a few broken bits. Sadly no tea making facilities. We were disapointed that towards the end of our stay we had ants in our room and holes in our bed sheets. The shower also broke smashing on my head but in fairness to the hotel, they did come and fix it straight away. The food is boring - lots of variety which seems great for the first 2-3 days, but after that you realise its actually the same food pretty much lunch and dinner meaning we became bored very quickly! However the waiter staff were very good and always greet you at dinner time when the restaurant opens. The pool is always kept clean. Annoyingly we realised on our second day, the only way to get a decent sunbed meant getting up at 7am every day. The hotel is also very over crowded meaning the pool is so busy. There were a lot of spanish people there on holidays and they seemed to have no respect for anyone sitting close to the pool which most the beds are, meaning you constantly get soaked from them jumping in all the time. There is nothing to do in the immediate area which means you get bored very quickly. We walked along the coast and in to Paraisio but after 2 days of doing that we were fed up. We were told a taxi to the nearest town was the only option costing around 30 Euros. We did do a couple of trips to break up the day but thats all there is. The evening entertainment is boring except for children and most people sit in reception on their phones and ipads! We wont be staying here again.....More
