Having read most of the reviews about this hotel before our trip we were obviously a little reticent about what we would expect once we had arrived......we need not have worried as the Riu Touareg hotel and complex was everything that we had hoped for. From the moment we checked

We wanted two weeks of complete relaxation, and that’s exactly what we got. Travelled 13 January with TUI; basic flight but we knew what to expect as had read reviews. The airport is quite primitive and had long queues as two planes landed within minutes of each other, but again

This is a great hotel, food and service from staff is very good. However, the quality of the drinks and cocktails lets it down and takes a star away. The rooms are adequate and cleaned very well. The entertainment is quite repetitive and not brilliant.

Is there a standard charge to upgrade to adults only on arrival?
We went in March and upgraded when we checked in - it worked out at 11 euros each per night and our tour operator were quoting about £500 each for 11 nights!! We thought it was worth 11 euros per night but not the higher amount!

Is there any water sports or anything to do round the hotel or outside of the hotel ?
We have been to the Touareg 13 times and it is really just a shut off holiday. As others have said there are quad bikes but in all the times we have been there has only been an orange flag twice to go in the sea and never a green flag always a red one. Further up the beach someone has set up jet skis hire but this is nothing to do with the hotel. Just use this holiday to relax.
