Yes, we loved it! My (large) family and I travelled to the Riu Guarana in July through to August. The party consisted of 7 adults aged 28 to 65 and three children aged 10, 7 and 7. We caught a very early flight from Gatwick and when we arrived at 11, our rooms were not ready until after 12. We... More

My husband and I stayed here mid July 2014 for 11 days. We've stayed in Riu hotels before so we knew the standard would be high and we weren't disappointed. Pleasant, well- maintained grounds with a lovely large swimming pool, medium - sized pool and outdoor jacuzzi. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean including around the pools. Food was...

5 star service for all staff ..friendliness and attention to everything in the resort is the best I have ever experienced... this is the second Riu hotel I have stayed at. The food was great and there was something different for every day you stay there. Loads of sunbeds and umbrellas.. the only thing that could be better is the... More

We stayed at the Riu hotel mid-August and agree with the majority of reviews on here. From arrival to departure the hotel staff were brilliant and ultra helpful without being intrusive. We have two boys who are 14 and 15 and there was plenty for them to do other than dip in and out of the pool. The tennis/football court... More

Just back from a week at the Riu Guarana. Changed to come to this hotel at the last minute for fear that my son wouldn't have enough to occupy him at the original hotel I had booked....I was not disappointed. The entertainment team work their socks off, there's no pressure to be involved though - my son enjoyed the football... More

First of all, we found out that this "4 star" hotel doesn´t even deserve this title, as they shut down the general air conditioned machines during the night (in August), without customers' knowledge, and after our complain saying that the air in the room was unbearable, they said that we may open the window!!!... in a place where we pay...

My partner and I have just returned today from a fantastic week at the Riu Guarana.. Here's a summary of our experience: - all areas of the hotel are immaculate - all staff are friendly, helpful and there seems to be enough to help such a large hotel run very smoothly. As mentioned in other reviews, there is 'active supervision'... More

Would recommend. Good size rooms with adjoining doors for family's, Daily maid service and towels. Fridge is an asset and you can get free water from the reception. However there is a decent super market 5 minutes down the road so mine was filled with brandy and wine. Yes it is all inclusive but they don't stock the fridge. It's... More

Great hotel for families. We've been to a first choice holiday village before and this hotel was far superior. Entertainment and activities for the children was good without taking over the whole hotel. Hotel facilities were fantastic and the rooms clean. Beds were hard but mattress toppers were provided. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
