Currently at the Riu Marco Polo and would echo the views of the last few reviews in terms of cleanliest, friendliness of staff etc.
Happy to report that the food has been hot so far, with plenty of variety. Meat at lunch and dinner time is cooked on grills by the chef(s) in front of you, so fresh. Some queuing for main dishes. Evening meal split over two sittings.
This week is the start of season for First Choice. Pool bar opened today. Pool still cold, needs a few more weeks to heat up. Indoor pool is better.
Arrived at hotel from our flight after 8 pm and were taken straight to the restaurant for dinner, which was great.
Rooms (4111) large with a deep bath. No wait for hot water and quick filling. Bottled water delivered every day as long as you order daily from reception. Some room have a safe with a key, some with a code (electronic).
Large Samsung TV in room with BBC World Service, CNN and an English Language movie channel. The TV has HDMI, USB and RCA connections.
The hotel will exchange money at "government rates". There are several ATMs about 400 meters away in town. I had no problems withdrawing money.
A bulldozer appeared on the beach today to start cleaning up the winter debris washed up on the shore (mainly reeds and strange looking straw balls (too many to be camel dung!).
I am writing this review on-line from my room using the hotels free WiFi. There is a WiFi access point nearby in the corridor. There may not be WiFi access in all rooms as I have seem several people in the lobby with tablets and notebooks, maybe they are just being more sociable?
Overall hotel seems well managed, well maintained and keep clean. This is a family hotel so lots of kids.
