Just returned from ten days in the Arecas, and it was great. First time in a Riu on half board, but the food on offer in terms of taste and choice, was superb. Lunch took a day or two to sort out as we had expected something on offer in the pool bar, but once we'd sorted it out, the... More

As always an immaculate hotel with experienced and very pleasant, helpful staff,. Food has a wide variety of choice, excellent value. Rooms are very comfortable but a little isolated. We had visited this hotel in May and loved it so thought we'd return for 2 weeks beginning of September. However I was a little disappointed with the level of smoking... More

First time I visit it but I am very pleasant surprised with cleaning, relaxed atmosphere, near de beach, with two big swimming pools and another infinity pool at chillout zone closest to the sea, free Wifi all areas and all rounded off with an exquisite treatment of staff. The only think I have to remark is that food could improve... More

we arrived and check in was so relaxed, the porter quickly took our bags after giving us a glass of fresh juice. The reception staff explained the layout of the hotel and gave us a small map of the area. Our room was spacious and clean, the bathroom was modern with a very large shower. There were a small selection... More

Halfway through a weeks holiday with my wife, and overall impressed. There are a lot of positives, and the few negatives are minor and should not put off anybody visiting the hotel, as I am sure you will have a great time. As others have said it has been refurbished fairly recently and it means the hotel is in a... More

My wife and I have recently returned from a week long holiday at this hotel, which we had visited last year. As before, we could not find fault with any element of our stay. The hotel is maintained to a remarkably high standard at all times and has excellent facilities. But what truly makes this hotel such a joyous experience... More

It was strange coming back from it being a family hotel to being an adults only hotel. The refurbishment is amazing, the food even better just a shame we can't take our granddaughter to this hotel, can recommend this hotel and will be coming back
