Riu Arecas

Tenerife, Costa Adeje

Exclusively for adults

Encompassing a beautiful setting and boasting stunning views, the Riu Arecas has a perfect location. Situated on the edge of Costa Adeje, the lively resort of Playa de las Americas is within easy reach, although still far enough away to capture a stillness and calm. The large outdoor swimming pools are surrounded by luscious gardens and paved terraces, providing a peaceful setting for unwinding. For the more energetic, there are floodlit tennis courts and a choice of nearby golf courses. An excellent restaurant serves delicious local and international dishes alongside themed buffet menus. Large guest rooms are cool and tastefully decorated, each with either a balcony or terrace.

About the location
On the sun-kissed west coast of Tenerife you’ll find Costa Adeje, a chic resort with an exclusive location. In an elevated spot set apart from the hustle and bustle of nearby resorts, Costa Adeje has uninterrupted views of Mount Teide. Life here revolves around the sweeping coast, thanks to a duo of pristine beaches. Playa del Duque’s honey-coloured sand was imported from the Sahara desert, while the darker volcanic stretch of Playa de Fanabe is classic Canaries. There’s a small but perfectly formed collection of bars and restaurants, with some good spots for fresh seafood and sampling the local fare. If your holiday doesn’t feel like a holiday without a few rounds of golf, the 18-hole Golf Costa Adeje was created to blend in with the area’s natural beauty, with rolling greens backed by palm trees and the deep blue of the Atlantic.
