Just returned from a "girlie" week (9 of us all around the 60 age group!) staying at the Riu Costa Lago. Very nice hotel, good food, very clean rooms, cleaned daily and towels changed. Pool area and terrace area clean and pleasant. Lots of sunbeds. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Food very plentiful and very varied choice. Snacks - rolls, cheese, ham and cake - available from 4pm in the conservatory. A packed lunch will be provided if booked the evening before consisting of various fruit, bottled water and you can make your own rolls from the breakfast food to take out with you. A very welcome and flexible idea! Hotel is less than a 5 minute walk from the seafront/premenade/nearest supermarket/shops/restaurants. Bus stop right opposite hotel entrance. Would recommend booking your trips with the agent on the right hand side as you come out of the hotel and head for the beach - about 300 yards away from hotel. Much cheaper than in the hotel and speaks good English and very helpful. Would also recommend the Irish bar just off the main promenade (closed on Sunday evenings). Turn left out of hotel to the main promenade, then turn right. Just about half a mile and just after the traffic island, there is a small opening on the right hand side of the promenade. We had an excellent evening there on the Saturday - highly recommended. Live singers and brilliant atmosphere. Would also recommend a trip to Gibralter (very cheap cigarettes/tobacco/alcohol) and hope you get better weather than we did - torrential rain and wind all day! Would love to see it on a nice sunny day! Also Seville is a very lovely city and well worth the two/three hour coach trip to get there. Or hire a car - very good roads. Enjoy.
