“2nd time was just as good!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

We have just returned from our second visit to this hotel, and I have to say we were just as pleased with it this time. Every thing is just as described in the brochure. We had asked for a room on a high floor, in a quiet location and we got just that( room 5078), it had the most superb view over the gardens, the three pools and an uninterrupted view of the sea! The room was cleaned very well every day and all public areas of the hotel were also clean and well presented. This is the only hotel we have ever returned to, and would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing, well catered holiday with excellent service!!

Room Tip: The garden view rooms are worth paying extra for.

We were at Riu Club the first week in June, the weather was perfect and the Hotel was very good
The staff were courteous and very friendly coupled with excellent service and wonderful food.
Don,t be afraid to go to the Riu chain of Hotels, you can,t go wrong. this was our first visit to
Gran Canaria it would be well worth another visit, staying at the Riu of course.

We stayed at the club Riu at Maspalomas in may and as it is near the El Faro centre of Maspalomas we were able to go for a walk after our evening meal.We had the most blissful,relaxing, wonderful stay.We always stay at Riu hotels now as they have the friendliest most helpful staff and the food is a gourmet delight, the rooms are excellent and the chambermaids are very thorough. We will definately be booking up again for a Riu hotel soon. Top marks to everyone connected to the Riu from the animation team to the reception and dining room and bar staff who excel at there job.

I have just returned from a weeks holiday with my wife at the Riu Hotel Gran Canaria.
It was our first visit to Gran Canaria although we have been to a Riu Hotel before.
The hotel was well up to the standards expected from a Riu Group Hotel and the room, food, drinks and staff were great.
Our room was on the third floor overlooking the gardens and although it was on the left hand wing of the hotel it was still just what we wanted.
If you walk through the gardens and out of the security guarded rear exit you are straight onto the promenade. The walk in either direction is pleasant but turning left brings you to the lighthouse where their are the shops and a sandy beach with plenty of activities going on..
We did have the enjoyment of a camel ride which was much better than certainly I expected.
Trying to walk through the sand dunes on a hot day is not for the faint hearted.
All in all a lovely holiday and one that probably will be done again in the near future.

Room Tip: Our balcony was in the shade from late afternoon which kept it bearable for sitting out before the e...

We had a fantastic time at this hotel and resort.

The food was good and plenty of it even for a picky child.

The pool area and grounds were fantastic.

The staff work hard to entertain you and meet your every need.

We would definitely go back and always look for the RIU brand.

Myself and my husband (late 50's) are very big fans of Riu hotels in general, this was our first visit to a Clubhotel as we had previously only stayed at "Palace" hotels. We were very pleasantly suprised with this hotel. The food was very good, plenty of choice and different places to eat. We tried the Aisan and Mexican nights and the Canarian & Andalusian buffets, all very good. The quality of the drinks both alcoholic and soft was good, the wine on tap wasn't brilliant but I have had far worse but the sparkling wine was 1st class. We had a garden view room on the 2nd floor and while I agree it is looking a little dated and worn round the edges it is spotlessly clean. The staff here are outstanding, very polite, from the top right down to the maids who always said hello. A week was not long enough and I could have stayed much longer. We had stayed in the area before and love Melenoras, this was why we chose this hotel and we weren't dissapointed.
If I have to be picky and find any fault it is in the linen, the bedlinen while spotlessly clean was very well worn and the bath towels were so small and thin it was difficult to dry yourself. However I understand the hotel is going to be completly refurbished next year and presume they don't want to replace them until then. Can't wit to go back after the refurb, it is going to be amazing.

Room Tip: Garden view rooms also have sea view. The higher the floor the better. Don't get a room on a low...
