It's all been said by other reviewers. The positives completely outweigh any minor negatives. Immaculately clean and well run hotel. Food excellent and varied. Location absolutely stunning. A very relaxed and civilised hotel. I do like a hotel where the residents don't think that getting dressed for dinner means putting on your very best football shirt. In fact I didn't... More

We thought the Thomson flight and transfers were great. We did have to wait 20 mins as one of the guests had a lost case, totally understandable. Arrived at the hotel and was checked in very quickly. The transfer on the way back was delayed but only because some guests understood "coach leaves at 11" to mean, "turn up at... More

I can only confirm what other people have written, this was a brilliant hotel and I would not hesitate to return. If I was to rate my experience on the Thomson's part of the journey, sitting on the coach for 1.1/2 hours then needing to queue to check in for almost an hour, return coach being delayed for 30 minutes,...

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel, we booked a garden view room which was on the side of the hotel that overlooked the town, it was just about a garden view if you looked over the balcony more a view of the houses. The hotel was lovely but I agree the check in process... More

We booked via Thomson only two weeks before travelling and arrived on the 6th April 2014 for one week. Transfer with Thomson was terrible - we got out of the airport 15 minutes after landing, but had to wait over 1.25 hours before the coach left for the hotel with other later arriving guests leaving for the hotel before us....

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Riu Palace Algarve in Portugal. We stayed for 1 week and of course it helped that the weather was superb for the time of year. However, the quality of facilities were superb and the service from hotel staff was excellent, with nothing too much trouble for them. The room was... More

A lovely hotel in terms of cleanliness and food but it stops there for us - We were bored after 2 days and lucky it was sunny otherwise there would have been nothing to do. Checking in was a nightmare as 3 coaches arrived at the same time and could of been much much better managed. We were allocated a... More

I have just returned from staying at the Riu Palace with my family and I would fully recommend it . The hotel is very clean, the rooms are of a good standard and the food and service is first class. The pool area was good but the pool itself was a bit cold as its not heated although the hotel... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was amazing. Perfect in everyway. We hadn't asked for a sea view but the hotel (knowing it was our honeymoon) gave us a sea view and a bottle of champagne and it was a lovely surprise and start to our two weeks of bliss. The hotel is beautiful, very grand and luxurious.... More
