We just returned from 11 days at the Riu Palace in Olhos d'Agua in the Algarve. The whole experience was just as good as last year. Riu standards are very high in all departments from service, quality of food, cleanliness etc. We chose this September as the weather is still very good and children are back at school. Even though... More

We have stayed at Riu Arecas in Tenerife and Riu Maspalomas Gran Canaires over the past 10 years and always enjoyed our stays. This time we thought we would try the Palace in Portulgal, Rules around the pool are a joke No Balls or Lilos in pool no diving and no sunbeds to be revserved. We are sorry to say... More

We have just returned from spending two weeks at the Riu Palace and must say we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It's a very clean and well maintained hotel, the rooms are good and cleaned every day, the gardens are lovely, we liked the buffet restaurant with lots of choice and variety and we had chance to sample lots of different...

My wife and I stayed here for one week at the beginning of September and were most disappointed by the food and staff that others compliment so fulsomely. The buffet has never been our choice of meals but, accepting this was the pattern of the hotel, chose to go. Having stayed at a number of other Riu venues we had... More

Really enjoyed our third visit to this hotel. Ideal place to relax and chill out. Fantastic position, love the walk down to beach and into the small centre with bars, etc. Hotel is really well maintained and all the staff are just brilliant. We are very sad that this hotel will no longer be a Riu or on Thomson's list.

This hotel was excellent, the staff are absolutely superb from the maids right through to the managers who were there every day greeting their customers. The hotel is spotless and all the rooms are very good. We only had a standard room and the only problem here is you have the main air conditioning fans set below the gardens, it... More

The hotel is situated at the top of the hill and is a 10 min walk, with no shortcuts down to the sea/village with many cafe's and restaurants, on pavements or down 300 plus wooden steps, need to take a taxi which would cost 4 euro each way. The hotel is very quite throughout the day and night, great for... More

We stayed here for a week from the 2nd to 9th September. As has been well documented the Hotel will be closing this autumn. This is due to Riu not renewing the 10 year lease they had on the property. They already have the very large and noisy all inclusive ClubHotel Riu Guarana next door. Everything good about the Palace... More
