Just had a week here, we've stayed in Riu's before and know that they work to a formula which may not be exciting but does pretty well assure you good standards of facilities, cleanliness and staff and the Guarana lives up to these very well, particularly the friendly, helpful attitude of the staff (Ion in the bar is such a...

We stayed here from 17/8 till 23/8. We did a round trip started in Lisbon and ended here. It was the most horrible vacation ever. We were also in the hotel in August 2012. Too much people and realy disgusting, other hotelguests take so many food and then they leve it there. Maybe it's personal... We decided to never go... More

We have just returned from the Guarana and had a good family holiday with 2 teenagers 16 and 17. The food was good especially breakfast just a shame the restaurant had so many ignorant people in it at times. It was very busy but fairly well organised although the cooking of the meat could not keep up with demand on... More

We spent a week here in July. The weather was great, the food was excellent and the staff friendly. Angelo, the Thomson rep gave us a quick tour of the resort recommending various establishments outside of the Hotel. Beaches were good and the sea refreshing. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

The hotel was the usual great standard for a RiuI but found the actual resort facilities, such as they are, difficult to access unless you're able to get around okay.b The hotel was easy to get around and the facilities were really good. The entertainment team wort really hard to make sure your holiday is a success. I'm in a... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks in August I would definitely recommend this hotel. We are in our 30's but there were about 40 of us who stayed and this hotel is great for all ages and plenty to do for everyone. The food is 10/10 with so much variety you will not get bored of it. The beer was... More

Firstly I want to say that this hotel is beautiful, the grounds, the rooms and the public areas are all very well kept and clean and the resort of Olhus De Agua is picture perfect. The staff for the best part are very friendly, especially on reception and in the pool bars. As a solo traveler I would not recommend... More

Staff...every single one from every department was friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms...knew to ask for a mattress topper as had heard that the beds were hard. Cleaned daily, fresh towels, sheets etc. Large safe. Lots of hangers. Asked for a quiet room and got one. Food...typical All Inclusive! But enough choice for two weeks. Wine, beer,... More
