My wife & I stayed at this hotel for two weeks in June.
Check in was very strange, they gave my wife & I a bottle of water each & two towels. the last thing we needed was something extra to carry, there was no porter available.
The room was ok & very clean with plenty of wardrobe space.
The food at this hotel was excellent, we've stayed at 19 Riu hotels & the food was almost as good as the Riu Palace hotels in the Caribbean.
Of course the service & cleanliness was what you expect at a Riu, excellent.
The wine leaves a lot to be desired though, Im no expert but the Rose & white wines were warm not chilled, & the sparkling wine called Dubois was awful, it was the cheapest sparkling wine at the local supermarket at just over 2 euros a bottle.
This is a very noisy hotel at night as some posters have mentioned, we had lots of people shouting and screaming in the corriders in the early hours of the morning.
This is a decent family hotel but it's hardly a 4 + and Riu should, just for once enforce it's own rules on reserving loungers as other posters have said.
I've stayed a the clubhotel Riu Vistamar in Porto Rico & I think it's a little bit better than this hotel. It's definately quieter at night!
