Professional respectful staff enjoying their work contributed to making the July holiday memorable. Special mention for Chano and Armando on reception, (apologies to two other reception male staff that were friendly and good fun - can't remember names) and had some fun with evening bar staff and restaurant waiters. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned every day. We have been going... More

Recently back from a one week stay with Saga - hotel chosen by my elderly father who accompanied me as there is no single room supplement. We take a week away together each year - my wife probably wisely stays at home! This is a 4 star hotel and as such is fine. All rhe staff are helpful, and everything... More

We had a week in April 2014, the Riu Palmeras hotel. Huonemme was located in a two-story bungalow-style building. The hotel area was fenced and very safe. The pool area was clean and comfortable, going to the beach was not even necessary. The pool area was a bar which was also really good food at low prices. Breakfast was great,... More

My wife and I stayed at Riu Palmeras in March for two weeks. It is very much an oasis in the middle of a busy town, but within a few minutes of the promenade high above the beach. Playa del Ingles is not an exciting place - it is very much about the beach - and the walk along to... More

We stayed here in March 2013 and enjoyed it so much that we booked again for March 2014. Have we regretted doing that? Not in the least, it was just as good as we expected. This is truly the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed at and the staff are excellent and will go the extra mile to please you.... More

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

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
