What First Choice and Thomsons omit to tell you is that the Riu Hotel chain is selling cheap deals to the locals as the Riu is at low capacity. No special weekends, no weddings, no school holidays just loads and loads of locals enjoying all the facilities and this hotel turns into very far from all inclusive luxury resort and simply a busy Butlins in Blackpool in high season.
It is the fight of the fittest in the dinning room where the locals first, second, third cousin and all ten kids will be served before you and even some are let in by the waiters who are not even guests.
Riu is making money selling cheap three day breaks to the locals who fill the rooms to capacity beware if your sold an exclusive, luxurious, holiday by first choice this you will not get!!
