Just returned from 10 day holiday at this hotel. Super welcome from Staff and Thomson rep Phil. Hotel room good size, very clean and modern, but beds very uncomfortable even after topper was put underneath mattress. Food in restaurant excellent with a large variety at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Grill restaurant especially excellent. Staff very friendly, and no queuing at... More

We have just returned home after two weeks in this hotel. The hotel is spotlessly clean, staff helpful and friendly, rooms spacious and comfortable. The evening shows were ok and the entertainment staff work very hard on these. To see the show you have to get there early because of shortage of seats due to the fact that there were... More

Our family of 5 have just returned from the Riu Hotel Guarana after a week's holiday there. The foyer is very impressive and the check in was second to none. They explained everything to us, and we were also given a bottle of water. The room was excellent for starters, and this continued with the food, staff and entertainment. Even... More

Returned from our holiday last night, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the gardens are a credit to them. Pool area was quite full most of the time, so the usual early morning bed savers were out in force. The hotel do state that they will always find you a bed but this didn't happen to our daughter and her friend.... More

We have just returned from a stay in this hotel for one week with our 5 year old daughter and have nothing but praise for this hotel. The room, food, staff, pool and daytime/night time entertainment were all excellent. The amount of staff working in this hotel is brilliant, if you want something they're always within asking distance. If I... More

A group of 6 of us visited ClubHotel Riu Guarana at the beginning of June 2014 for 4 nights. The only complaint that I have was the outdoor pool was not heated - the temperature during the day was anywhere between 20-28degrees but the pool that early in the year was FREEZING. My friends and I still went in and... More

Self service soft drinks, beer and wine as well as a swim up bar in the large pool and a bar that serves drinks and coffees. Free bottled water available at reception. Plenty of activities during the day for adults and kids. Three buffet restaurants, two... More

We last visited the Riu Guarana 3 years ago as a couple, but have recently returned as a family with our 1 year old son, so we are reviewing the hotel from a different perspective this time around. There were a few reasons for us choosing this hotel for our first family holiday: 1. a relatively short flight 2. a... More
