Little gem A review of Hotel Riu Garoe
what a gem of a hotel - only 190 rooms so not too big. Hotel location in quiet area of upmarket La Paz district only about 500m from Botanical Gardens. You can walk to town centre and lido in Puerto but it's down 184 steps. Best to use hotel free bus which runs on a regular basis except Sunday.
Quality of hotel, fixtures, fittings,cleanliness, staff, food etc. all to what we know is Riu standards. Manager always out and about and is very approachable. Reception staff exceptional. No problems with sunbeds and shades. Mainly German and Spanish guests, only about 20 English whilst we were there, but this didn't create any problems. Garden areas are a delight. As you can see we consider this to be one of the gems of the Riu chain. Entertainment low key just as we like it. Happy hour each day between 5.30pm and 6.30pm. The North of Tenerife is much more scenic than the South and we used the local buses with our bono tickets to get around. A super holiday with temperatures in the 30's each day.
