We had travelled to the Jaz Mirabel Beach in Egypt (another Thomson Platinum hotel) in 2015 and our shortlist was made up of a number of Thomson Platinum rated hotels, after much deliberation we decided upon the Riu Touareg. We travelled to the Riu Touareg between 10-21 June 2016. Below is my full and frank review of the holiday:- Building... More

We went here in Jan 2016, as we wanted somewhere different,that had sun and nice accommodation. We weren't disappointed. It was absolutely wonderful. We stayed in the adults only section and if your like us and children have flown the nest, you like luxurious, peaceful sunbathing then I would truly advise you to go. You can lie in peace and...

This is a huge hotel complex with ongoing building work at each end. Luckily we were in the middle so not badly affected by this but we were aware of other families and couples asking to be moved. Parts of the hotel are looking a bit tired. You are in the middle of nowhere so if you like to have... More

11 night trip in April 2016, absolutely stunning resort. Definitely a must see. Nothing around the hotel (which we knew), just miles of beautiful golden sand. If you want an idea of how remote it is, have a look at the satellite view on Google maps. Sea was red flag all the time but we did see people in the... More

We stayed at the Riu Touareg in April 2016 for 7 nights with our 18month year old child. The room was clean, spacious and tidy. Was great to have a separate seating area to the bedroom - really came in hand for the three of us. The restaurants on the whole were of a good standard. Can't complain with fresh... More
