Reception and lounges - very pleasant and comfortable Entertainment - every evening - very high standard Swimming pool/gardens - very clean, plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. There is a fabulous beach within ten minutes walk from the hotel, but with such lovely gardens and huge swimming pool, who needs a beach? Food - extremely good, plenty of choices. Staff... More

We stayed one week in this hotel, in one of the bungalow. The bungalows are not really big but comfortable, clean and located near the swimming pool. The bungalows could be refreshed a little bit. When we arrived it was depressing with this old furniture. We weren't there to watch TV but it was better to watch the news on... More

The restaurant is very nice, very excellent food, mutch different things to eat. The special restaurant "the Sir William" is very delicious and... More

There are 2 separate sittings for dinner, 6.00 - 8.00 and 8.00 - 10.00. We were at the 2nd one and found that the food was not being replaced when the dishes were getting low and that the waiters were clearing the tables ready for breakfast before 9.30. Also a lack of variety, with would have been an issue had... More

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

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
