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.

After much searching, chose this hotel. It turned out to be a very good choice. We had a very good time. The food was very good, the staff were excellent, the room was excellent (we upgraded to superior room with part sea view - it was, in fact a bedroom and a sitting room with extra WC and balcony). The hotel and grounds were very clean. There was plenty of choice of entertainment if you wished. We stayed by the unheated pool, as the heated pool had more little ones and all the water sports. Plenty of sun loungers. You need to take a flannel as these were not provided, but pool towels and ordinary towels were. WiFi is a bit iffy. We had room A705. it had a view of Gomera and banana plantations, and was away from the noise. this was the 7th floor, but as the hotel reception was on the 4th floor, and the hotel slopes down to the sea, this was not a problem.More

Not a hotel for people without children
My friend and I stayed here in march 2015. We were very disappointed with our room, very basic no pictures, cheap beds and tiny bathroom. We were upgraded but still needs a revamp. The food was well cooked but the same day in day out! Staff were excellent and very helpful. The themed Italian night was awful same food with reheated Brussels sprouts, very Italian hence. We walked out. Don't go if you are over 35. Sorry the entertainment was the same man sing English old songs but what language I am not sure. No enclosed areas to escape, so in bed by 9.30. Such a shame a lot of hard work is needed :((More

Nice Hotel but Restaurant not to usual Riu Standard
We stayed at the Clubhotel Riu Buena Vista for 7 nights from 2 January 2015 with friends. The check-in staff were very helpful and as we arrived shortly before the end of the lunch service we were issued with our all-inclusive wrist bands immediately an told to put our bags in the luggage room and finish checking in after lunch. A nice thoughtful touch which meant we didnât miss lunch and the check-in paperwork was completed when we returned. The rooms were very clean and very spacious with a separate lounge with its own WC, large bedroom and huge wardrobe with plenty of hanging and drawer space, and a large en suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle. No complaints about the room at all! The restaurant was a bit more canteen-like in layout and presentation than other Riu hotels we have stayed in but nevertheless the staff were very pleasant and tables were cleared and reset immediately they were vacated. A good choice of hot and cold food at each meal and being able to help oneself to beer and wine is a good idea. A dress code should be implemented for dinner as in other Riu hotels as shorts and beach wear was often worn by men (and some women) - fine for daytime but not evening! The restaurant at the bottom of the site near the beach is more ârusticâ which is fine for daytime lunches and snacks but it was also used to host the themed Asian and Italian nights but for me it just didnât work as a place to dine in the evening. The evening entertainment was, as usual, pretty dire but weâve come to expect that in any hotel, regardless of the chain. Yes, we understand in what is essentially a family hotel there needs to be suitable family entertainment but is it really too much to expect adult entertainment after 10:30pm, even if itâs in a separate room, and a hotel this size has plenty of space to provide such entertainment. Some of the acts were quite good and the animation team were actually very good and quite professional but it would be nice to end the evening with maybe an hour of adult only dancing. The two pools are of a good size and the bottom pool was slightly heated but the infinity pool was definitely for the hardy only. The animation team provided pool games during the day but didnât pressurize people to take part. What we found very surprising was the number of school age children on site. Initially we thought the numbers would decrease once the end of the ânew yearâ holidays had passed but the numbers actually increased significantly each day. The majority of them were lovely and very well behaved but unfortunately a few of the older children obviously didnât want to be there and they were noisier than the little ones. There looked to be different childrenâs clubs for different nationalities which seems a good idea. The resort of Playa Paraiso is very quiet and apart from a couple of bars approximately 10 minutes walk away and a few tourist shops there isnât very much to do outside the hotel, although we did have a nice walk up and around the banana plantation to the resort of Callao Salvaje which had a much nicer atmosphere and a better selection of restaurants and bars. For a post New Year break if was lovely and the weather was really warm, but the resort is a little too quiet for us who like to have a walk about and visit other bars after our evening meals.More

A week away
A lovely week away, shame about the weather, but it didn't stop us having a nice break with very helpful staff in the hotel. The food was good but a little boring if your staying for more than one week. The pools were great and the entertainment was good if you wanted to join in the water gymnastics or rifle shooting etc.More
