We actually booked another hotel, which apparently was full so they moved us to Riu Palmeras. We got a warm welcome with a glass of prosecco, the porter was very friendly and had a good sense of humor. Generally the kindness and the willingness of the whole staff from waiters, barkeepers, receptionists, etc. was excellent!!! location is good, right distance... More

Lovely hotel sited close to the beach. Good facilities especially the pool and poolside area; plenty of sun beds. Wide variety of food available. Whole hotel spotlessly clean. Very helpful and friendly staff, I got the impression that they just couldn't do enough to help. Seemed to be more geared towards older clientele. I thought it was great, but imagine... More

Dropped down to Playa Del Ingles last minute for 1 night. Got a good deal so stayed here. My usual experience with Riu staff is they can be a bit stiff. Not the case here. Staff friendly and engaging. Got a welcome drink as I waited briefly for my room. Very near beach and yumbo centre. Room was nice and... More

I cannot consider this hotel to be 4star! I am sorry, but being a hotel singer in Thailand for over 10 years and having been housed to many famous hotels where I worked as a singer in Thailand, I know what I am talking about what it comes to hotel ratings. It needs renovations. We were put at room 328... More

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
