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.

ClubHotel Riu Buena Vista
The staff at this Riu hotel were the best thing that could be said about this hotel and complimented it. It was a shame that the management were so sure they had things right that they were oblivious of the shortfalls. The worst being the food which was the worst I have ever tasted at any Riu hotel. It was bland and tasteless, overcooked and looked very unappetising even the soup (cream of vegetable) which was served almost every day lunch and dinner was so thick I ate it off a fork and it did not fall through the cracks. I know being an all inclusive that you expect repetition but it was the same food every lunch and dinner the only variation was the meat pieces which were cooked by a lady on a grill which varied from pork to chicken to beef even that was very tough and unappetising. I was thankful I only booked the week. The drinks were weak you could drink a lot (maybe watered down) and still feel sober if you wished. The pool was freezing and not heated at all. The rooms were nice we had a family one but even the bed was lumpy and very uncomfortable but the reception did send up a topper so it was adequate for our stay. I definitely would not return to this hotel.More
Stayed here as a couple for a week May 14th. We had one of the larger rooms with a separate lounge over looking the banana plantation.We asked at reception and a second sun lounger was put onto our balcony. The pool area was nice, but crowded. We had the sun on our balcony from 1.30 till it went down at about 8, so spent all the afternoons in the peace and quiet as we wanted a relaxing break. The safe in the room was worked by a key card, so very simple to use and also free.The food was good, with plenty of choices, and we never left hungry. We walked to the roundabout at the top of the hill and used the service bus to go to Adeje. They run every 15 minutes and cost 4 euro 20 for 2 people. Our only gripe was on our departure day, we were picked up at 4am and could not get even a cup of coffee as the machines were not switched on.More

Very good hotel
My friends and I recently stayed in this hotel. It was my first stay in a Riu. Unfortunately, due to a medical mishap (my friend, not I), I arrived alone and little disorientated. The staff were very kind and welcoming. The hotel was spotlessly clean and our room with a sea view was more than expected. The all inclusive food and drink was fabulous, it was self service which is ok but the staff will go out of their way to get whatever you desire. There were a LOT of families with young children so may be not recommended for romantic trips or groups of girly/lad holidays or anyone that has sensitive ears. Perfect for families though. The only thing that let Rui Buena vista down was the room they gave us on our last day (â¬50, for late check out purposes). We got into our late check out room to have showers on our last day (since our flight was at 19.00). The shower room ceiling was damp and as I showered water came out of the light, causing it to blow out and me showering in the pitch black (half sudded up!!). Although they did send someone around immediately to fix the problem, I do feel that that was a little dangerous. Don't let this put you off going though. All the staff, from the reception, bar, dining and house maids were super friendly always with smiles on their faces and ready to teach us English folk some Spanish. All in all a fab holiday had by all!!More
The staff at this hotel make it a special place to stay. Everyone of the Riu employees smiles and takes the time of day to look after your every need. My husband and I stayed here for a week in May, our room probably wasn't one of the bigger ones, we didn't have a bath or a separate sitting area, however we did have a lovely view of the mountains and it was cleaned every single day. The food was fresh, plentiful, lots of choice and we enjoyed sitting outside every meal. We also enjoyed using the snack bar with a fantastic sea view. The drinks were just ok,although you could help yourself to draft lager (which my husband was really nice), wine, hot drinks and juice whenever you wished, you cannot complain about that..the cocktails weren't brilliant but it's not a deal breaker. I liked we didn't have to get up at stupid o'clock to get a sunbed there were always plenty available and you could get a pool towel everyday if you liked. The pool was like getting in an ice bath though!! There were some tiles missing from the bottom of the pool which I would have expected to be repaired. The hotel is really isolated which we did know before booking and there are three free buses to Las Americas everyday. We did lots of walking around the hotel but there really are very few shops, bars and restaurants etc. If we had been going for two weeks we would have needed to be somewhere busier. Great views from the roof terrace and a handy supermarket in the hotel. If you are going to be entertained you may be disappointed. If you are going for the beach you may also be disappointed. Just one gripe the air hockey which was under our room, it was loud and vibrated round the corridors, should have been situated elsewhere.More
Nice looking hotel but WARNING it's not all it seems!!
spent a week at this hotel and we will NOT be coming back!!! The room size was great and a pleasant view of the mountain. Most of the staff very helpful and kind apart from the snack bar at the bottom, quite rude at times. Pigeons kept landing on our food and what's out on display for others to eat???. The main let down for us was the Food in the main restaurant. It was terrible!!!.. no taste and felt like a canteen with school dinner standards. felt cheap and nasty, quantity and not quality seems to be the norm. Dog meat with vegetables is not what i wanted! To eat out cost over 40 euros just to get a taxi to town and back. But the food on offer in player at 7 euros was far better than what this hotel had to offer.. so the all inclusive felt like a waste of money.. The hotel it's self looks nice and size is grand but our room had many problems. We was only allowed 1 sunbed!!!so me and the wife had to take it in turns.. The beds are all singles pushed together and slid across the room with every move I made. (On wheels) One night the bed separated and I fell between the two hurting my arm and elbow as the floor was solid!. I spent the last 2 days in pain killers! the safety rail on the balcony was loose and the side mounting came away!.. We also found a dirty T shirt stuffed behind the sofa that stunk!!!..The pool was also freezing cold!! all in all we did not enjoy our holiday and this this was mostly due to the lack of service offered by this hotel.. My advise to anyone who wishes to roll the dice on staying here is bring a lot of money because you will need it with either car hire or taxi's. keep in mind if you hire a car you cannot relax with a beer after your meal!...
