Due to unfortunate problems with an outbound flight from Manchester. The majority of passengers were put in The RIU Arecas overnight.First impressions of the hotel from outside were excellent.Thomson laid on a cold buffet, on arrival which was very poor, both in presentation and content, but maybe it was done hastily. Bedroom 0082 ground floor was like going back in... More

I choose the Riu because they usually deliver a good standard hotel and food. Having stayed at this hotel 3 times before I chose it because of the peaceful atmosphere that we had encounter round the pool before. OH WHAT A MISTAKE THAT WAS. The noise from the refurb or should I say reconstruction of their sister hotel the Palace... More

We have stayed at this Hotel on a number of occasions and with this chain in a number of countries and have been pleased with their service. However on arrival what was described as refurbishment of its sister hotel RIU Princess can only be described as a part re-build. The noise of pneumatic drilling was incessant and many people were...

The staff are so friendly and want you to enjoy your holiday. The food is great. So much variety. Meat and fish cooked... More

Looking at the reviews on line the interior reviews are reasonably accurate. The bedrooms are tired and ready for modernisation, however they are very clean. The beds are uncomfortable and in my view probably below a 4 star standard. Meals are included in the rate for an evening meal, the restaurant again is probably about a low 4 star standard,... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week and enjoyed every moment. The staff are second to none and we complimented the Manager on this. There were renovations going on in the Arecas Palace next door but it didn't bother us at all. This hotel is due a refurbishment soon and I would come again. The food is fantastic .... More
