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.

Mrs Sharon bush

I went here with my husband and two boys along with 11 other family members, found the staff very helpful and any problems we had were dealt with quickly, food lovely lots of choice, hotel clean, pools nice but could get a bit crowded where the sun beds were, and due to the number of us that went had to get up early to get sun beds, daytime entertainment was good, best part of my day was Aqua Gym with Darryl, felt the Hotel should bring in more outside acts in the evening, due to it being a 4⭐️Room was lovely we all had the same size room never had a room this big b4 lots of space bathroom also a nice size and liked the fact you had a separate shower also rooms cleaned to high standards every day, would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and would go back. wiFi was very slow. A big thank you to Bianca behind reception you very welcoming and helpful. All in all a very enjoyable holiday had by my family. The two weeks went by in a flash More

Sharon B,

Mrs harvey

Hotel lovely and clean staff are amazing can't do enough for you the beach is awful and as for sun beds we are like sardines they are so close together and if you don't get up early hours of the morning you won't get one I seen people up at 2am keeping sun beds there is nothing in walking distance of the Hotel but we knew that before we went the Hotel needs Some maintenance as broken tiles in the pool and around the hotel grounds some of furniture in the rooms need replacing but apart from that amazing holiday More


Fantastic holiday

Overall a fantastic holiday, the hotel is a little out of town but they offer a free bus to and from there throughout the day. Its in very peacefull location if your looking to relax but there are few shops and bars just a 5 mins walk away. The staff were always friendly and polite, the food was fresh and there was a lot of choice so we was never bored. I would definitely go back again and recommend to everyone. The only thing bad I could say was sunbeds are taken very fast so you have to be there at 8am to get one but there is a small beach next to the hotel if you couldn't. More


Excellent Family Holiday

Spent 10 days here, and had an excellent time! On arrival to the hotel, we were quickly booked in, and guided immediately to the restaurant for dinner, (we arrived at 7pm). The staff were very helpful and friendly, reception staff, cleaners, waiters, bar staff... Our room was very spacious, with 2 beds in one room for our daughters, and 2 single beds put together in the main bedroom. The en-suite bathroom had a bath & shower, and there was also a separate toilet. The rooms were clean and well presented, and they were cleaned to a very high standard everyday. Food at the hotel was great (we were all inclusive) I have seen some reviews stating that the food was very "samey" everyday - that wasn't my view. Yes, some of the food was available everyday, but there was so much choice, that didn't matter. There were plenty of options, from salads, to roasts, pizza, pasta, freshly "live cooked" meats & fish, rice dishes & desserts. There was a lot of good quality seafood. The pools were really good, though the usual problem with most hotels as far as reserving sunloungers was evident, and you had to be up early (by 8am, most would be gone, despite signs saying that this wasn't permitted) - however, we tended to go to the local beach in the morning, and we always got loungers in the afternoon. There aren't a lot of shops in walking distance - according to the brochure, there were! (And if there are, we didn't find them) The hotel had a small convenience store, and a couple of gift shops that were very reasonable, so this wasn't a problem. The man made beach close to the hotel was good, but could do with tidying up - lots of cigarette ends on the sand. The water was clear, and was suitable for snorkelling and swimming, with lots of shade on the beach for people who wanted that. The beach was never packed, and we always had quite a lot of space to ourselves. There was a free bus provided to Play de las Americas, which is very handy to get to Siam Park (It was a lot cheaper to organise to get the bus and pay to get into Siam Park ourselves, rather than go through the rep, which would have cost around 17 Euros per person more!) We didn't see any of the entertainment, but the mini disco for the children was always really good! We'd certainly go back again!!More


Honest Family holiday review

Just returned after a quick one week family break . Having stayed in the RIU Palace in Aruba in May ( which was AMAZING despite some trip advisor reviews saying otherwise , we would go back in a heartbeat !) we were looking forward to another RIU experience. Some excellent aspects , some not so good but certainly wouldn't put me off coming back to the hotel . LOCATION Playa Pariso is small with nothing really to do , it does have a doctors , pharmacy and supermarket and a few small shops which is really all you need as the hotel has excellent facilities . They are developing this area and with the hard rock hotel opening in Dec i imagine this area will have better facilities over the next year or so . Nice short run from airport and there is a free bus to playa de las Americas from hotel but we got a taxi at around €17 each way . Having been into PDLA for the day I would choose to stay in Pariso again no hesitation. HOTEL AND STAFF Perfect RIU experience , hotel rooms are spotless , spacious very clean with massive balconies . We choose this hotel as it was the only one that had an all inclusive family room with separate rooms ( most other family rooms are an extra bed in main room which is not great for a 15 year old girl travelling with her mum and step dad !) Hotel staff have customer service down to a fine art from the minute you walk into reception to the Person who seats you at your table for meals . Our room was facing the beach area which was overlooking the building work . I was slightly disappointed and asked for a room change but as the hotel was fully booked they were unable to accommodate us until midweek . We decided not to change in the end as the this side of the hotel was actually very quiet and apart from seeing a crane out of the window you couldn't actually hear much from the building work ( it doesn't start early and is finished before you go back up to room, nothing on sat or sun ) . WIFI is not great , I ended up buying extra data and paying roaming charges for my 15 year old as she just couldn't access the wifi quickly. These days I would expect a 4* all inclusive to have free wifi throughout the hotel . TV only had one English Channel (Sky news) but lots of Spanish and German channels , didn't bother me or my family but would be nice especially for those with small children to have more English speaking channels . POOL Despite negative reviews the pools were ACE ! top pool is far quieter entertainment wise so we tended to use that one . Not cold as previously reviewed and really clean . You can change your towels as often as you want and the top pool is situated between toilet and towel block and bar so perfect ! Yes if you want a decent sun bed you do need to reserve early ( not ideal but no real hardship!) I got up around 6.30 am and managed to get a decent spot on all days . Hotel rules are your not supposed to reserve until 8am but trust me if everyone had to que for pool at this time it would be chaos you would have to join a line at 5am to get a decent bed ! Much easier to just pop down early and then go back to bed . My real bug bear was those who reserve prime spot beds but didn't use them all day until late afternoon ! Quit being selfish , if you're not sitting by the pool all day then don't take the spots that people who are intending to have a pool day could use . We went out for the day and arrived back at 4.30 pm . Decided to go down for a swim and found a set of sun beds quite I easily so absolutely no need for selfish people to reserve all day if they are going out ! Pool staff will also move parasols and find sun beds for you if needed . FOOD AND DRINKS Typical European all inclusive food ( and bear in mind we've just done 5 star all inclusive in Aruba so it was never going to compare !) no complaints on quantity or quality but I'm pretty much vegetarian who doesn't eat fish and I struggled a bit to find variation. I ate a lot of rice , chips and cheese with salad for lunch and evening meal . Pizza was nice but you don't want to eat that everyday, was fine for a week but think I would have struggled for two weeks . Breakfast was fab lots of variation from full cooked , to pancakes , cereals , eggs and fresh fruit etc. Lots of carbs , lots of cheese in oil l fish and sliced meat which catered for the German clientele well but if your not into that kind of food you tend to eat the same things every night. Drinks are fine , not the strongest and you don't have premium alcohol but it's no biggie . They are easily and pretty much available 24/7 so that's all you need . ENTERTAINMENT The entertainment isn't great but you cannot fault how hard the team work . They are by the bottom pool all day and then do the shows at night so they really do deserve some credit ! The little kids seemed to enjoy the entertainment and thats the main thing . So some great points and some not so great but overall a very good experience. If you want a nice quiet location for a pool holiday ( but with the option of doing other stuff IF you want ) then I would say this is the hotel to go to , I would return no hesitation 😎☀️☀️☀️More
