Just back from 10 day break . Have stayed at around eight riu resorts but this was the first in europe. As expected from the riu chain the staff were all amazing, always smiling and nothing too much trouble. Rooms at papayas were lovely and spotlessly clean, one small grouch - generally have coffee machine and ironing facilities in room... More

Just returned after 10 day break, overall a happy relaxing holiday but with a few niggles. The worst being the stubborn flies- whilst the hotel can;t be blamed for them I think they could have made more effort in the restaurant. There were flies everywhere over the food which was all uncovered. Plus the kitchen was away from the serving... More

Staff were cheerful and helpful and plenty of choice of food. Having a vegetarian area would be an improvement because some dishes difficult to know if meat was included. Joined in the no pressure daytime entertainment but... More

Rooms are of good size and easy to get to. Staff were all very friendly. Were there second week of November, the pool was freezing, don't think it was being heated, which is a shame as most of the family wouldn't use it. Food was your usual buffet which was okay for 1 week stay but think you would get... More

Hotel is excellent, it has recently been refurbished and to be honest it looks new. Rooms excellent, food ok but very much the same everyday. Staff are excellent and always smiling, apart from Pedro. He seems to think it's his own drink he is giving away! Would return as overall it is a very good hotel.
