We stayed here for a week from the 2-9th June. This is our third stay in a Riu hotel so were getting used to the concept, which seems to be pretty much the same wherever you go with this chain of hotels.
The hotel has a strange layout. 1The main hotel with the pool, restaurant and bar. 2 Other rooms over a bridge with a pool and snack bar and thirdly over the road were apartment's with just a pool. We were in the main hotel so can only comment on that area.
We arrived after a lovely flight and easy transfer of about 20 minutes. Check in was nice easy and efficient. The room was comfortable and we had a pool view. The restaurant was nice and clean and the food was of good quality and for a week we had plenty of selection and plenty of it. if you wanted you could eat from early morning to late evening. The staff in the bar were very friendly but don't expect waiter service as you have to either go to the bar or the self service area.
Two things which were wrong with the hotel was the pool temperature, felt like you were getting into an ice bath as its not heated in the summer. Also the sunbeds are starting to show their age and need replacing.
All in all a lovely week and thanks to Vicki the Thomson rep and all the staff for their hard work.
