It was indeed an amazing stay. We came to this hotel to celebrate my birthday. We will look forward to return to this hotel as the staff gave us amazing service. Maria was very hands-on the hotel guests. We saw her round the clock during our stay. The food service of the hotel are excellent. Even if the main restaurant have timings for breakfast,lunch and dinner, the lobby is open for snacks and some drinks to have a bite if you're hungry. The amenities are super nice. They have three swimming pool,water slides, and water activities-all for free. They also have gym and jacuzzi which we enjoyed the most. There's also beach if you want alternative option to swim. And then night time there will be activity to do. During our stay we did Bingo game and that was super fun. Surely we will recommend this hotel to our friends and colleagues and this makes us our new favourite staycation hotel.

We’re staying here / were asked to write a review by an employee. Positive: check-in was smooth despite a long cue Inside parking is also positive We also like the food variety and the friendliness of the restaurant employees, Beach and outdoor facilities are nice/clean Negative: pool bar staff isn’t trained in customer service/rude. Whoever shouts the loudest and behaves the rudest will get served first, while those people who follow social distancing and have general politeness, will stand there waiting. Music is too loud, no silent area anywhere. Secondly, the security employees inside the lobby seem to have no idea of how to politely approach a guest. I was about to take a photo of the empty lobby. That’s completely normal if you’re on holiday. I was approached by a security guard, without saying “excuse me” and asked if I am a guest and told not to take photos. He would have been easily able to identify me as a guest, as I am wearing the RIU “all inclusive “ arm-band, same as all other guests. I was also un-politely asked not to bring coffee from the bar into the lobby. That’s OK, but it all depends on the tone. (If the bar is full, shall I drink standing, or outside at 50 degrees? Would be nice to open the lobby for drinking coffee) Billiards are being destroyed by children, no possibility to use them for their actual purpose. That’s something the security should take care of. I was at RIUs in Spain which we’re great. But staff here never heard about customer service.
