    Great stay at Riu Arecas

    Found all the staff at this hotel to be great, probably better than any hotel we have stayed at in the past. Very helpful was Ivor at reception who sorted us out with different room as the first room was near a generator which was noisy. The food at this hotel was very good so much choice, the pool areas were very nice, we mainly used the hotel beach area which is just a short walk from the hotel. The entertainment was ok with some acts very similar, would have been good to have seen a Motown or Soul act though .The hotel is set in a great position away from the main area and great for walking. Will come back to this hotel in the future.

    Return to Costa Adece

    Good hotel let down by its restaurant. A poor experience with off hand waiters, dishes not speedily filled up Reception excellent. Quality of food ok but repetitive. The safe should not be charged for.

    Good hotel

    Unfortunately our stay was cut short due to illness. Hotel is very comfortable and clean. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Dining room busy but well run and selection of food excellent. Our room was nice, although overlooked a car park and no sun on our balcony. Pool area and garden are lovely. Was very disappointed that the only access to beach area was via 5 flights of steep steps. Surprising as most guests were senior. Also it was a long walk to shops etc. so not an easy stroll to do in the evening. Majority of guests on our stay were German so everything including tv and notices were in German. It was nice, but won’t choose it again.

    Winter Sunshine

    Thoroughly enjoyed our week at this Hotel. Very warm welcome when we arrived, refreshing drink and dealt with the registration process quickly and efficiently. Room was ready when we arrived, very clean and good size and location ( room95), courtesy call from reception to check all was ok . Restaurant and pool area very good. All the staff we met were friendly, helpful and extremely hard working. Sun beds were not an issue as there was plenty to go round, even though some people still put their towels out early … why!! Food was generally of a high standard, no issues at all. Bar prices were very reasonable, entertainment of an evening was not our choice, but , it’s difficult to get the balance right. Visited the Spanish Restaurant, which made a nice change.
