Just returned from a two week stay at the Riu Costa Lago. Went from the 3rd to 17th of sept. The first week the hotel was full of spanish with lots of loud roudy children. Normally pick these two weeks as the children have gone back to school. In the pool the kids were quite annoying as they were jumping... More

6 of us have just returned from a 14 night stay at the Riu Costa Lago, there was a number of highlights and lowlights. We found that the short transfer from the airport was great! We were promptly given a safety deposit box for 10EUROS which was refunded to us upon departure. Like many of the other reviews below we... More

Hotel is clean and welcoming. But there were a few points that would make me think twice about coming again. Drinks are weak for all inclusive guests, and cocktails are served from a bottle or machine rather than being freshly made. The pool is difficult to get in and out of as it's metal ladders rather than walk in steps.... More

Just back from a belting 10 day all inclusive with all the family..apart from the lack of no free WiFi (which in this day and age should be a given), I can't understand why anyone with a young family wouldn't appreciate the hotel.
