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

Spent a week here, an excellent hotel in a convenient location - staff were very attentive, room, restaurant and public areas all very clean. Restaurant food was of a high quality, lots of choice and attentive staff. Didn't experience the entertainment so can't comment. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again!

The Riu Belplaya was a good hotel for a break in March. The weather was poor but the hotel offered entertainment thro the day. A good base for visiting nearby towns with good rail and bus connections plus miles of promenade to explore. Service was excellent and food was always hot and fresh (checked regularly).Staff were friendly and helpful especially... More

This was our second visit to the Belplaya. What a different experience to the first time. Went for a week in July 2012 it was awful. It was a totally different experience this time. The food and staff were great. The hotel is spotlessly clean in all areas. We had a problem with electric key slot that was sorted within... More

After reading reports on trip advisor about the Riu Belplaya I was a little worried about going to this hotel but I was totally wrong. The room was a little worn and dated but who really cares you only sleep in them, needs updating hopefully the carpets are on the replacement list with the furniture. Pillows very hard, walls very...
