After spending our last two Christmas holidays in Fuerteventura we decided to try the Costa del Sol for a change and booked for Christmas and New Year. We made our choice after carefully checking previous reviews on TripAdvisor and though that, on balance, this hotel would be OK. On arrival check in was very well organised and it was nice... More

Arrived and was greeted by nice receptionist, quick check in - reception area desperately needs a revamp and the electric chairs (if that's what you call them') need removing from the area, looks like you entering an old peoples home!!! (We are young 56-59 year olds, we don't need reminding what we have in store for us). Apart from that... More

We returned home yesterday after a fantastic 3 night break over Christmas at the excellent Riu Belplaya. Once again we cannot praise the hotel high enough; I regularly review hotels in Tripadvisor but I very rarely give a 5 star rating! OK, the hotel looks a little tired in places but the rooms are spotlessly clean and ours, on the... More

What a lovely place to spend Christmas, went for 7 days over Christmas and there is nothing I could complain about, the food was outstanding ( fillet steak, salmon, fresh seafood) there was something for everyone and never repeated.... The staff are amazing with nothing to much trouble, all speak numerous languages and cannot do enough for you. To be... More

i cannot imagine what some people have been writing about when I read some of the reviews on this hotel! Let's start with the food: wonderful varied selection, changed every day of our seven days there. Breakfast with a huge selection of cereals, meats, cheeses, fruits and hot breakfast too, eggs, sausages, bacon and more. Evening meal was a feast... More
