ClubHotel Riu Buena Vista

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.

Stunning Hotel with Beautiful Room but lots of Children

I visited this hotel for 11 nights in July 2016. The hotel is lovely and in a beautiful location. A free bus is provided by the hotel into Playa de las Americas which runs regularly throughout the day. We made use of it many times. The staff are friendly and helpful and cannot do enough for you. Our room was on the eighth floor and on the corner which meant we had two very large balconies and also meant we had the sun all day. It was also extremely peaceful at all times! The food and drinks variety could not be faulted and the restaurant staff were so friendly. The hotel had two large pools, the only issue being that other selfish guests seem to reserve 4 or 5 sunbeds by placing towels across them resulting in no sunbeds being available by 10am on a sunny day! The staff seem to do little about this. On a few occasions we had to stay on our balcony due to no sunbeds being free. Another thing to bear in mind is the amount of children at this hotel. It can be extremely noisy at times around the pool and in the restaurant and quite easily spoil the holiday if you are just there to relax. Finally I must mention 'Babs' the Thomson rep. She is an asset to the company and so friendly and approachable. She made our holiday what it was - well done.More

Great place

Everything was great, the food diverse and tasty, the people really, really nice. Many thanks to Juan and Iulian(waiters team), they were amazing. Thanks also to 123Travel and Cristina Radeanu for all the arrangements. We definitely paid less for all the services we had included. I would happily go again!More

Andreea Z,

Five Day break

Well having been here before, about 3 years ago not much has changed in the hotel, rooms good clean as always maids come in everyday , pool area good , but you must be early to book your sunbed if you want a good spot, food good ,plenty to choose from, live cooking normally chicken fish and steak ,did find theme nights better for choice, there is entertainment but found it to be the same as last time I was there , loads of people playing cards at night so best you take some , otherwise it can be a long night , not much happening in the town couple of restaurants two bars and couple of shops , so it's preaty quite there at the moment, also they are revamping two hotels, booked transfer to and from airport and hotel with holiday taxis cost 57 pound bargin a lot cheeper then taxis 50 euros + no messing with tour transfers going from hotel to hotel, transfer time is 20 minMore

Stephen L,

A brilliant week away in a hotel with everything we needed.

I spent a week here as part of a Thomson (TUI) holiday package with a group of 5 other friends. The setup with Thomson was really good with a seamless service from Birmingham Airport all the way through the transfers, hotel experience and return journey. Unfortunately, due to matters beyond Thomson's control, the flight was delayed and therefore we arrived at the hotel late - the transfer is around half an hour (Riu was the last stop). We checked-in and was told to immediately go and eat to avoid missing last service. When returning to the check-in desk to complete the paperwork, the hotel staff had given us two rooms between the 6 of us - a Villa and a Junior Suite, which was by far an upgrade to what we had anticipated when we booked. Both of these were ground floor with sea view, so we were ecstatic with this. The rooms were a good size with a sofa and TV with channels from a range of international broadcasters including Fox, Sky News and BBC World News. If anything to grumble, the beds are a little firm and I had to request extra pillows, but this is often the case at Spanish hotels. We were given several follow up calls though from the hotel staff to ensure everything was okay, particularly when I had requested pillows. There is a safe in the room which is controlled by the key card that also opens the front door. Although the hotel does not offer any wifi in the room, there is access in the hotel lobby (it worked automatically, despite there being a booth to purchase access) and there is also computers with a printer. This wasn't used much though due to wanting to spend the holiday without access to the Internet and social channels. There are two freshwater pools and a children's pool in the centre of the complex with sunloungers and umbrellas surrounding. Pool towels are provided, which can be exchanged between 8am and 4.30pm from the poolside free of charge. During the daytime there are exercise programmes such as Aqua Aerobics, Volleyball, Water Polo as well as an eclectic mix of games that seem to have been made up by the hotel! It was all great fun. Try and find out when the "Water Carpet" is and look out for crazy additions such as "Guess the weight of the watermelon". There is also a gym adjacent to the pool, which is accessed via a key from reception. The hotel advertises a pool bar, but in reality it is a walk up to the top of the complex, so isn't immediately next to where you will be sunbathing. The bar is open 12pm-12am and offers cocktails behind the bar (alcoholic and non) as well as beer, wine, hot drinks and soft drinks. The beer is Amstel. This is standard offering across the hotel's food outlets. There are two restaurants and three bars. The main restaurant served buffet Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. There is also a themed restaurant that advertised itself as "A La Carte", which traditionally means "From the menu", however, this was just the same buffet style with a theme. Each day it changes from either Italian or Canarian. The food is generally of good quality, though it never seemed like the food on offer went together to form a proper meal, so we often ended up eating a random mix on a plate, or for example, a whole plate of meat. Meet is Pork, Chicken, Veal or Rabbit. it's a good opportunity to try new things though. There's also a lot of Fish, Paella, Pizza and Pasta. There is then bread, salad and a mix of desserts. Each meal there is also a range of "live cooking" areas and the food always tastes fresh, with new batches being brought out regularly. I did miss proper table service though, however, the tables were cleared promptly after each plate. I do recommend purchasing some snacks though in-case you get peckish in the evening. There is no food available after 21:30 and there is no room service. There were also NO Tea and Coffee making facilities in the room which came as a disappointment, though there is a fridge. Bottles of water are free from reception as, like in other European countries, you cannot drink the water from the taps. In the evening there is light entertainment within the top "Atrio" bar which is normally a singer. At 21:45 each day there is a production in the "Bar-Salon", but some of these were not that great, particularly as they are mostly non-verbal due to the number of languages they have to serve. There is also children's entertainment in the evening from Riuland. There is a small beach next to the hotel, which is accessed through a gate at the bottom of the complex. Although technically not, it felt like it was private to the hotel, with it being very quiet. There is also a row of shops not far from the beach, but there isn't really that much there other than a few souvenir shops and a couple of bars. There are a number of outlets in the hotel though including a newsagents, souvenir shop, jewellery shop and beauty outlet. Alternatively, one can book the free shuttle bus from the hotel to Playa De Las Americas. This takes around 15 minutes. Las Americas is a lot more commercialised with a large beach and front of shops, bars and restaurants. There is also the must-visit Siam Park waterpark and the Siam Mall. I recommend booking Siam Park with your tour operator when you arrive. We went for the premium tickets which for 51€ include 15€ lunch voucher, towel and locker hire. You can also purchase a twin ticket to visit Loro Parque Zoo. However, be prepared to leave the hotel at 8AM because it's based at the top of the island. Though the ticket includes the bus transfer. You may also wish to visit Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos, which like Las Americas, have a commercialised beach front with plenty of things to do. You can get here via a taxi which the hotel will arrange for you. You'd look at paying between 10€ and 20€ for the journey which didn't seem bad for us, particularly when splitting this between the group. It's easy to find cabs for the way back too. I couldn't fault this hotel at all, though it is typically "All Inclusive in Europe". We had a great time and will have fantastic memories.More
