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.

Second visit. Travelled with child and a baby. Baby tips
This was the second visit for me hubby and our 6 year old. We took our 6 month old baby this time. Best tips/advice and feedback i can give for travel with baby here is....pre book a baby seat for airport transfers. I tried to get baby seat for taxis and the hotel free shuttle bus or to keep her strapped in buggy on public buses,neither possible so she had to sit on our lap!. If u want to be lazy buy lots and lots of premade formula milk at the airport (most airports u can pre book) i bought 20 cartons of sma and were 75p each,after running out on day 4 all i could find was little aptimal bottles and the price was 4.45 euros each!!! So i bought nestle original milk from a hipodiner express supermarket for about a pound and it filled 2 bottles so had much more in. Rest of milk was made with powder sma and boiling bottled Font nela water (this brand advertises less impurites). Id recomend to take a large picnic blanket with plastic bottom for the room so baby can sprawl out. Siam park defo worth a visit,if u get public bus u need to get off at bus station but u may as well get free hotel bus and walk 10mins up the hill and ur there,Thomson had an offer for us at the time so when we booked our park tickets we each had 5 euros to buy food and drinks on the park. We thought best walk and beaches was to start at costa adeje end and walk to puerto colon,v pleasent. Think its always best to take in reviews beforehand to ensure this hotel is right for you but we love it.More
Young families and mature couples only!
At first glance an impressive hotel. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. We were a party of 3 ladies in our forties, the room was clean and spacious but one of the beds was a fold up which was not acceptable for an adult, we were given a proper single bed and all was well. We stayed in block D ground floor, which was around the far right side, ground floor with partial sea view, for me personally breakfast was the best for food selection and quality. Salads were great, as were the pizzas and fries, all other foods I felt were at best average. Very disappointed with the specialist restaurant evenings, there were3 evenings to choose from, Italian, Canarian and Asian. The first was edible, the second was awful, so we didn't bother with the 3 rd. Drinks were fine, particularly liked the strawberry dacquaris. Entertainment if you could call it that was dire and got worse as the week went on unfortunately, I think it would have been better to have had a disco than the so called singers laid on. It is a quiet resort which we didn't mind as we just wanted to chill out and relax and we did that, there are plenty of places to walk, run, etc, which lots of people did. The man made beach wasn't up to much and it was quite rocky in the water, but plenty of other beaches to visit via bus or taxi if that's what you like. All in all we enjoyed our stay but would not stay here again. Just one more thing, most people at this hotel are foreign and I have never stayed anywhere where the people are so rude and unfriendly, not even a smile from most of them, sad, very sad.More

Stayed with boyfriend for 1 week in August and had an amazing stay at Riu Buena Vista! Pool was perfect with the infinity pool over looking the sea. Our room was clean & spacious with views over looking the mountain which I preferred even thou we requested for a pool view as would have been very loud especially as it was the middle of the kids summer holidays. Location was away from the main town center but with the FREE hotel shuttle bus it was good to get to the main beaches & even the water park. The Siam water park is definitely worth going too great day out. Food was your standard 'All inclusive' buffet style. We preferred the restaurant by the sea which was more open whereas the main restaurant just felt like a canteen. Varied entertainment which again was your standard holiday camp stuff which was more aimed for the kids. Don't know if we would stay again as a couple but definitely with a large group or family.More

Good family hotel
This is ideal for families as the family rooms are so spacious - a double bedroom and a lounge with pull out beds. A toilet with sink just off the lounge and a large bathroom off the bedroom with bath and separate shower. The balcony is also spacious with table , two chairs and one lounger. We were in A block with a fantastic view of the sea and overlooking the banana plantation. The only downside was that the sun did not reach the balcony until four o'clock but in the heat of the summer that is probably an advantage. The food was good - not amazing and very repetitive. The restaurant at the sea front can be booked and they had Canarian, Asian and Italian nights. This was disappointing as we booked the Canarian night and the food was identical to the main buffet restaurant only less of it! We were expecting waiter service but it was a buffet. We did not bother booking the other nights. It was relaxing going to this restaurant at lunchtime as you could sit outside overlooking the sea - a great view but the food was not so appetising - not covered up and flies hovering over the pizzas and rice dishes! Overall the food only merited a three star hotel. There are two pools and one is heated which is great for children. The children's club also looked good. The entertainment at night was okay - always music in the main lounge with dancing and a club downstairs with varied entertainment. The hotel was walking distance from Playa Paraiso and it was a pleasant walk along the sea front. We had a good holiday but we did not think it was a hotel that we wanted to return to. To finish on a positive note the staff were all exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to make you feel welcome.More
Please review before booking this hotel
After having spent many previous holidays in this hotel, we have been extremely disappointed with our recent stay. The hotel has dropped its standards massively, the first thing we noticed was the drop in staff numbers, especially in the restaurant. While the restaurant staff remained friendly & helpful it did not compensate for the lack of choice and general standard of food we had come to expect from a 4 star hotel. It seemed like a bun fight at breakfast. There was a lack of cutlery at times, a general queue at the live cooking area and chaos at times to be able to get seated. The restaurant staff were incredibly sorry when we complained and tried their very best to make things right however they could only do their best with what they had available. With regard to the hotel their were instances when we returned to our family room at the end of the day and had to ask reception for towels as the cleaners had not replaced them. On one occasion we had to make the trip to reception ourselves after waiting so long for them to be delivered to our room. This was met with hostility. The cleaning of the rooms was very average compared with what we had experienced before. The pool area is still in need of maintenance, many broken tiles not repaired, sun beds that need some attention to bring up to standard. The entertainment is average, so no surprise there. We were generally so fed up with the hotel and the drop in standard that we asked to be moved to another hotel which was met with great opposition, we were told that it would be costly and that the other 2 Riu hotels were full and could not accommodate us .Playa Parisio is a grubby little town with the usual tourist style shops, but there have been some improvements in the walk around it, however you will need a level of fitness to be able to do this. We have decided not to visit this hotel again and would advise others to really do their homework before deciding to book. We would not recommend this hotel.More
