Just got back early on Monday morning from this hotel. My father, who is 85 years of age travelled with us as well as my 16 year old daughter, so we were concerned that this holiday may not meet all of our needs, however, we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was spotless and the staff went out of their way... More

This hotel is a great place which caters for everyone, the staff are so friendly and the rooms are modern and clean. No problem with sun beds and there is a busy pool and quiet pool, nice to have a walk to the sea front in the evening, great atmosphere.

Stayed for a week in July 2014 and have mixed feelings about this holiday. Have stayed in better hotels labelled as 5 star though it could easily make itself a 5 star hotel with just a few tweaks. The rooms: I liked the rooms. I did email about 4 weeks before to request a pool/seaview and was delighted with our... More

On arrival we had barely reached reception when we was met with a refreshing drink. Checked in, in no time and luggage was bought straight to our room. I mentioned to someone that i found the bed hard and within minutes someone was putting a mattress topper on it which made a big difference. Had a pool/sea view was lovely.... More

The property felt a little dated and just very average in general. wifi only available in the hotel lobby and painfully slow, almost unusable. food was kind of bland. swimming pools were ok but nothing exceptional. i have stayed at other...

We really couldn't fault this hotel, the staff were friendly and attentive the food was very good and the hotel was probably the cleanest we've ever stayed in. I would agree with the reviewer who sat ignore the negative reviews if you can't have a great holiday here there's something wrong with you!

Went to another RIU hotel and was not disappointed. This small fishing village resort has not been spoilt with the lovely hotels. You get the best of both worlds, all inclusive holiday chilling yet the feel of a traditional resort. We, like many work hard and want to rest so all inclusive is important for our holiday so we have... More

We visited the ClubHotel Riu Guarana for a week in July. The hotel is extremley clean and very well run - the hotels senio managment team are very visible and approachable. The hotel has circa 500 bedrooms the majority in the main building, with around 50 in a seperate annex (which also houses the nightclub and a restaurant). Although busy,... More
