Once again I spent a week at the Riu Nautilus from the 2nd October to the 9th October and had a very enjoyable holiday. When we booked this holiday I again requested a sea view room overlooking the pool and on the west side. As before, we were told that this is only a request and they may not be able to meet our requirements. All the rooms are the same price apparently and it seems to be the luck of the draw as to the room you are allocated. It is a pity that they don't charge according to the sort of room as some are more desirable than others. As it was, two days into the holiday we were changing rooms. This results in losing most of half a days holiday.
I went back to this hotel because of the location next to the beach and the lovely flat promenade stretching for miles. We were welcomed by the restaurant manager who remembered me from my previous visit and I find the staff very helpful. The food again was very varied and you can always find something to suit.
If you suffer with sciatica, or have arthritus (which I do) the beds are a little hard, and I would prefer a more comfortable mattress. We spoke to another older couple and they had the same problem. Maybe we should have mentioned it and they could have rectified the problem.
Overall we again had a super weeks holiday, the hotel is very clean and comfortable and the food was very good for a hotel in Spain.
