This Hotel is situated in a fantastic location for shopping, bars, public transport and access to the beach and walk to adjacent resorts. Food and variety second to none - pity about the fact that you had to either dine at 6.00 or 8.00 p.m. (I thought Riu had changed this regimented policy in their Hotels now). However, the choice...

This is an excellent hotel with a great swimming pool - non-slip and not too deep. Plenty of sunbeds and a pleasant garden area. Entertainment was mostly outside in the evenings and finished at the acceptable hour of 11 pm. Like other reviewers, I was not happy about the set times for dinner and the set seats and some people... More

At first l thought things were a bit regimented, but the place grew on me. Greeted with a glass of bubbly and soon in our room, cases followed swiftly. We had a large balcony being on the lst floor with table and chairs.The room felt a bit small due to another set of table and chairs inside. Everything very clean.Nice... More

A good looking curved building, with elegant marble reception area, and all bedrooms facing an attractively shaped pool set in a beautiful garden with many palm trees. Good sitting areas inside and out, and plenty of suns beds and sun umbrellas around the pool. Unobtrusive bar service near the pool. There's a small gym around the back of the hotel.... More

This is a lovely hotel and this time, our second week, we have a large balcony overlooking the pool. We are here on full board, although missing most lunches as out all day. Sadly wifi is not available as at the Reina Isabel; in this day and age free wifi is expected, even if restricted to reception areas. My other... More

We stayed for 1 week in a bungalow (travelling with 2 children) in February 2014. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel - we were immediately attentively received by the staff, served a glass of cava while they checked us in, and our luggage was swiftly transported to our lovely bungalow. The hotel is newly renovated and while it cannot... More

This Riu is not the one on the edge of the dunes at Maspalomas. Warm welcome & pleasant peaceful pool area with nightly entertainment. Cosmopolitan crowd. Overall, good hotel but rooms slightly dated.

The hotel is decent enough, with above-average rooms, first rate staff and excellent food. The house wine is good quality, too. Travelled as part of a group, and evening eating for groups was 6pm or 8pm; a bit inflexible, in my opinion. The other minor irritations were the lifts; small capacity; and the wifi, which was charged for-rather penny pinching... More

Just returned from a week at this hotel and booked for 2 weeks next year. The staff were friendly, food was good and the hotel was very quiet after the evening entertainment finished at about 11.00pm. Rooms were clean and maid service was excellent. We travelled with Saga, Kathleen the rep was great, very helpful and was always on hand... More
