Have visited numerous costa del sol hotels and many riu hotels the Belplaya is best avoided if considering booking. It is a tired hotel. In particular you should bEware that this hotel offers cheap deals to spanish families and couples on many week ends and bank holidays. It does not have the capacity to cope and if you are unlucky...

Just got back from the Riu Belplaya. I travelled with my Husband and Daughter. We emailed ahead for quiet, connecting rooms and these we got. Rooms 266 and 268, overlooking the bowling green. While I cannot fault the cleanliness of the rooms and their spaciousness compared to some I have stayed in, they are definitely in need of some TLC... More

As soon as I returned from the trip. The hotel turned out to be several times better than I expected. Friendly service, very nice, spacious and clean rooms, catering - better not wish for. If I will have the opportunity, go again. I recommend to friends!

My sister and 88 year old Dad visited the Riu Belplaya last week. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Met some lovely people. Lovely room, lots of wardrobe space and hangers. We were in rooms 304 and 305 with side sea view. The pool bar had games during the afternoon. Josh was the only hotel entertainment and he... More

What a find, a very clean and comfortable hotel, the staff are exceptionally attentive, the rooms we had were large, clean and comfortable. Good choice of food, for every taste, delicious and well presented. Definitely be going back. To be balanced, the pool although looking very inviting is absolutely freezing.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff and service was definitely 5 star, but the beds and pillows need some upgrading. The beds we had in our rooms sounded like a guitar player tuning his instrument, but really that was our only complaint. Thank-you Ricardo for introducing yourself, you are running a lovely hotel. We enjoyed the all... More

I went in February ’15 when the weather was unusually cool and windy. I also picked up a virus, probably on the plane, and wasn’t very well for the bulk of the holiday. This meant I wasn’t feeling very sociable and didn’t have much appetite. Neither of these were the hotels fault! The Hotel is at the quiet end of... More
