I totally agree with Jayne 26. How did the reviewers who raved over a "Taxi firm" manage to stay there when it was closed??? How can we trust Trip Adviser when this sort of thing is allowed? Other than that, I must also praise the wonderful staff at this hotel. As per the title we have had 5 excellent visits... More

The last 2 reviews are of a closed hotel and both mentioned super duper taxi company ??? Strange ? The hotel was great when open but if a transfer company dropped me at a closed hotel I doubt I would leave a glowing review or maybe it's just me ??? Filling in the review section on trip advisor is pointless... More

It was a lovely, clean hotel with friendly and amenable staff. Our room overlooked the gardens which was lovely in the morning watching the birds. The food was very good and varied to suit all tastes. The hotel staff were so pleasant and their attention to details was excellent. The pool area is nice and calm. The spa was definitely... More

Riu standards are very high in all departments from service, quality of food, cleanliness etc. The hotel is spotless and all the rooms are very good. The food was very good and varied to suit all tastes. Fantastic position, love the walk down to beach and into the small center with bars, restaurants and shops. There was a visible management...

This is a fantastic hotel, in a great location. Coach buses come periodically to take you on excursions, gorgeous nearby beach, and a beautiful facility. The food lives up to the expectations and so do the shows. Very friendly staff and a clean hotel to go along with it. Alhos d'Agua is generally a beautiful and interesting town, located in... More

My wife and I visited this hotel for 10 days commencing 25th September 2014 as part of a Thomson package. On arrival, it was immediately clear that this was a well managed hotel worthy of its 4 stars. We fully agreed with the brochure's description of 'hushed elegance'. The public area are spacious and airy with marble floors and an... More

Loved the hotel, loved the decor,loved everything about it. The room furniture was dark, typical Portuguese style but in good condition and we loved it. We will go again and hope!! Not sure about the very white look in the modern rooms.... Many thanks to the poster for this preview. Who would have thought that so many people would have... More

Like many reviewers on this forum, we've enjoyed many happy holidays at the Riu Palace Algarve! The staff are incredible, the hotel is impeccably clean and the food is delicious! We were saddened to discover last year, that Riu's 10 year lease had expired and the hotel would be under new ownership. It seems refurbishments are taking place and the... More

Just spent one week at the Riu again in late October. Having stayed here many times over the past seven years, we were very sad to find it was closing for good under the RIU banner. The front line staff we have come to know were demoralised as to know fully what was happening to them. This didn't detract from... More
