Food great. The gourmet restaurant is under used and we cannot imagine why as it is so good. If we tried really hard to find fault it might... More

Well its a Riu. Good value, great customer service…..but this one wasn’t as good as the others. Staff were friendly but no personal service or recognition unless you have been going there for years I think. Every greeting was as if it was the first time although I seen some of the staff 5 or more days in a row,... More

From arriving at the hotel to leaving couldn't fault it. From bar staff to the hotel cleaners they were all friendly and couldn't help you enough. Alex the Thomsons rep was excellent with all the information she gave us nothing was to much trouble. This was our first time at a Riu Hotel and can't wait to try another

Just back from 2 week stay and was so impressed by the level of service provided by all staff. It was our first time with Riu and would certainly recommend this, although our 19 year old daughter came with us and was not for her, we thought that there would be an entertainment team but there is nothing. Certainly a... More

There was nothing to complain about in the hotel. The room was lovely and the bathroom very nice ( to be honest we didn't even switch on the TV so no comment on that). The staff were always very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent with lots of choice and drinks reasonably priced.It was quite a long walk to the... More

Check-in and room - We were welcomed at check-in with a glass of champagne - a good start. We had to wait a while for our room to be ready but when we got there, the room was spacious with large twin beds and a bathroom with efficient shower over the bath, and a separate foot-washer aka a bidet. We... More
