We've just come back from a short stay at the Riosol which we last stayed at about 5 years ago. Riosol I would give 4 out of 5 but Puerto Rico only 2 - I'll come on to why a little later. The apartments are nice and have been upgraded since we last stayed. The bathrooms are nicely done as are the balconies. Cockroaches were a bit of a problem as they are in most hotels in Puerto Rico. The main problem we had with the apartment was the lack of air conditioning or a ceiling fan - due to the cockroaches you couldn't leave a window open during the night which resulted in a few sleepless nights due to the extreme heat. Either AC or just a fly screen on the bedroom window would be a big improvement. We stayed self catering so I can't comment on the food at the hotel.
So now for Puerto Rico - This was our 7th visit to Puerto Rico but our first for around 5 years, having stayed at numerous hotels mostly in the vacinity of the Europa Centre (top of the hill). Unfortunately this centre is now dying a death with a lot of the restaurants/bars closed down and the ones that were still open were deserted. We had a drink in the Turbo bar and at 1.30am there was only 6 of us in there. The main centre was also much quieter with the restaurants on the first floor all closed during the day and now only open in the evening. The beach was practically deserted and there are no longer the peddle boats and few restaurants/cafe's at the beach again due to them closing. I know it was before the school summer holidays but we never travelled to Gran Canaria during the holidays before and it was always much busier. We only stayed for 4 nights and spent over 700 Euro - that is the reason we will continue to holiday in places such as Turkey and avoid the Eurozone, everything was way overpriced.
