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.

totally let down by trip advisor reviews here, just back on the 4th of april 2015 after a ten day break
we always check the food rating etc on trip advisor before choosing a holiday, this is the first time we've been let down badly by the reviews, the food is average at best, the hotels pool area is too small for the amount of rooms and everyone packed in like sardines, luckily there's 2 areas past the dining area that are quiet, the room cleanings not good, after a ten day break the floor hadnt been cleaned once, the staff i should add are very helpful and friendly, every request responded to quickly, they really are making the best they can with what they are working with, our fridge was really dirty on our arrival, someone was sent within 15 mins to clean it, then didnt work, so another fridge was sent up within the hour, great work. first tiem for years we have been to a hotel that charges for wifi in the reception area, very poor showing, booked a suite, no kettle, one sun lounger in the balcony! which they said is the norm, though they couldnt say why, when there is obviously going to be more staying in a suite. ps to top it all as we waited for our bus when leaving(3/4/15, 1350), a security women was waiting at the front as we waited on the bus, watching us take off our all inclusive bands, realising i had forgot to buy a paper for the flight i walked back in to the hotel to buy!! a paper when she stepped in as i was trying to pay for it saying they cant sell me it as i dont have the bend on that she watched me take off!! i had to bite my tongue on that one.More

Riu All the way , Decent Clean & Friendly Hotel.
Just back from a weeks stay @ the Riu Buena Vista -- 12 of us , family and friends , all ages 5-60+. Most definitely a family Hotel -- do not consider if you require a quiet "couples" type experience - For us this was a perfect Hotel - Service with a smile all the time , extremely clean , Family rooms are a decent size with a generous balcony -- we were very fortunate to have a room (A340) close to / overlooking the Pool wth a sea view -- Sun in the morning -- if you prefer afternoon Sun on your terrace then request a room in B Block -- Rooms are well maintained. We requested rooms close together and were not disappointed. The Hotel is remote - a few shops and Bars are a 10-15 minute hike (not stroll) but very reasonable pricing if you care to go beyond the Hotel , Siam Water Park is a 20E cab ride away and worth a visit for the more adventurous party, drop slides , wave machines etc (35e per adult , 25 e u12s) - also an area with loungers if some need a rest. This is an All Inc resort -- if you want a la carte then dont book here-- We found the food to be as varied as possible considering the Board type - the best produce being fresh local fruit / veg / fish , which is plentiful. i think , if you stayed for over 1w then you would need to find alternative restaurants - not because the food is bad but because it becomes too repetitive eating in one place all the time -- there is a "themed " restauarant but this only offered 2 booking @ 6pm and 8 pm and seemed to be overbooked when we went so we avoided. Two sititings for the amoount of guests/space caused large queues at the food counters which could have been avoided by a more staggered seating arrangement. The entertainmant we found amusing -- again this is a hotel not a drama school? -- The guys worked tirelessly all day and part of the night and should be commended for their efforts . Horses for courses. I would certainly return for a family type holiday -- its a great place for a week of sun / sea / chilling. Thank you Riu , lovely stay+More

Just returned from this Hotel, great hotel for families, food and drink all to an expected standard from a Rui hotel. Very helpful and friendly staff in all areas. Bedrooms very clean if a little short of drawers and no mirror over dressing table. However ample wardrobe space. With a bathroom with walk in shower and bath, also a separate toilet. We had 8th floor C block good views of small beach sun most of the day. On the downside a little to far out from shops etc for anybody with walking difficulties, but great walks for able body people.More
Just returned from 2 weeks at this hotel, first time and we were not disappointed. Food, room, staff, cleanliness, service all first class. We were in A block overlooking the road and a sea view - very quiet as away from the pool area which suited us. Would definitely consider a return visit. Not a lot to do/see outside hotel unless you go on a trip or catch the bus but we did venture out on a couple of walks to Paraiso - cheap nail bar at the pharmacy if you need your nails doing ladies!! You do have to pay for wifi 20 euros for a week or your can pay hourly - everything else is free and plentiful .All in all a great holiday..More

NOT THE BEST
HOTEL The hotel is a large imposing building with two very large swimming pools and the grounds and dÃ©cor are of good standard and well maintained. The rooms are large and one I occupied was on the fourth floor of 'A' block. This room had a living area, with toilet and separate bed room with ensuite bathroom. I suspect the living area will be turned into a second bedroom for families. The balcony is large and had two full size sunbeds as well as a table and chairs, this is ideal when the pool is busy. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. and couldn't do enough for you.Top Tip. If you can book a room in the 4th 5th or 6th floor of 'A' Block overlooking the pool. These rooms get the sun from early morning until late afternoon. Restaurant This is where the hotel lets itself down. The main dining room is divided into two areas but both serve identical food. I felt the food was of poor quality and as it was prepared on an industrial scale, lacked taste and variation. By the end of the week had I been limited to the main dining room I and confident I would have looked for alternative options to eat out. There is a second restaurant situated near to the pools. During the day it serves snacks but in the evening converts to a themed restaurant which has to be booked due to the limited availability. I ate there three times and sampled Canarian, Asian and Italian nights all of which were considerably better than the fare on offer in the main dining room. At the entrance to the dining room the hotel place hand disinfectant for the patrons, but does nothing to ensure their guests use it. My experience was that very few people used them and all that was need was a waiter to stand beside them and remind people to clean their hands before entering. This is particularly important when you see the amount of children freely handling the food on display. Entertainment. There is not a lot I can say about this. The underground theatre, and I use the word theatre loosely, is claustrophobic and the quality of the acts I sampled was poor. There is a band that plays nightly in the main concourse of the hotel but given the size of the area and the amount of people present they are difficult to hear unless you are dancing. Location. When I booked this holiday, I told my rep I wanted someplace quiet as I did not want to end up in an area that was full of night clubs. They certainly took me at my word as the main area of Playa Paraiso comprises of approximate 6 shops and three bars / restaurants. You can walk the length of the main street in under 2 minutes. Apart from that there is nothing much to see or do in the resort and if like me you like to walk then a bus or taxi ride to Costa Adeje is required. Conclusion. This is not the best Riu I have stayed in and what made it particularly bad this time was the number of children between the age of 0 and 5. This meant you were continually having to navigate past prams and buggy's and the dining room was like an adventure play ground. Parents were quite happy to allow their children to run about and I was surprised that there wasn't and accident. As I said previously the dining room was split into two areas and it would be very easy for the hotel to make one of these areas adult only. I may sound like a grumpy old man, but I have raised my children and only point this out to give those like me and informed choice.More
