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.

Not quite there, for our liking!
A huge impersonal building with the layout reminiscent of a prison block, the dining room is incredibly noisy and far too big, its like a works canteen. This makes the whole dining experience feel unpleasant and instead of enjoying a leisurely meal you rush it in order to get out of the place, The variety of food is excellent but seems so mass produced to cater for the volume that it takes a lot away from how good it might be. The shows are mediocre and again everywhere is noisy, with sitting area, stage, bar and television area all crowded together. On the plus side, the staff are lovely and have a genuine desire to be friendly, professional and welcoming. The rooms are adequate and spacious and the cleaning of them exceptional. (mountain/seaview, a little over described as a wall took up most of our view, and blocked the majority of the sun. Wifi, very hit and miss, and not in rooms. How can that be in a 4* hotel? Sorry, would love to give a better review because of the staff, but cant because of the noise and lack of real holiday atmosphereMore
Stayed at this hotel in October 2015. Staff were very helpful and as always with Riu hotels the food was good and there was a lot of variety. Had an issue with the air con in our room which was dealt with quickly however was not fixed. Since the temp was only about 25 degrees Celsius we weren't to concerned and didn't pursue the issue. Although at the Riu hotels I believe there would have been no issue in swapping rooms if that what was needed. Lovely pools and gym was good. Good value for money overall. More
Holiday at Riu club hotel buena viista
Just had 2 weeks in room 703c.Hotel is nice clean,no shortage of anything.Staff are ok,bar staff are the nicest.There is one big problem,so many children and prams everywhere.It appears they have the rights of way and you need to be very careful or you could be knocked over by a PRAM.It seems to be OK to take them into meals.The food is ok but repeative.If you are over 50 I'd say go to another hotel.The sun beds are so close together around the pool try and get a room back of left side on block c where you'd have sun all day,and avoid crush around pool.Take your own kettle as there are no hot drinks from midnight until machines are switched on at 7am.There are so many people in this hotel,if you are older go elsewhere.There will be an accident here,as well as prams,there are a lot of broken tiles on paths,and lighting is poor at night.uMore
We had a 2 week holiday at this hotel from 1st Jan and had a fantastic time.We couldn't fault anything yes the rooms are dated but spotlessly cleaned daily with fresh towels and toiletries replenished every day. All the staff are so friendly nothing is to much trouble.I celebrated a special birthday and they went out of their way to make it such a memorable occasion.Also we had a little girls birthday again they made it special. We wouldn't hesitate to go back we upgraded to a sea view and it was well worth it .All balconys have a sun bed as well as table and chairs which is a bonus.Just like to mention some of the staff that went the extra mile .Roberto, Sergio,Mario,Edgar,Pedro,Encardo,and Marino, like I said no complaints with any staff.Dont believe the bad reviews try it you won't be disappointed. The weather was red hot for the whole 2 weeks.Thanks for a brilliant Holiday keep up the good work Riu.More
Hotel very dated needs re-vamp. Restaurant come school kids dining hall was noisy, hectic, food repetitious we were there 3 weeks, entertainment lousy & took place what I can only explain as a works canteen, pools great, !!!!pool beds were like gold dust - putting towels down as early as 6oclock in the morning but in the hotel information it states "all towels will be removed if placed before 8oclock" this didn't happen!!!!! Lastly there should be a segregated area for smokers - most unpleasant. The one good thing is the cleanliness of all public areas, clean baths & pool towels daily, Needless to say we will not return.More
