Hotel Riu Palace Tres Islas
Ranked #10 of 45 Hotels in Corralejo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I stayed for a week with my daughter in February and we both had a lovely stay. There was a special welcome in the room to celebrate her birthday, and we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, although I did feel that there was one particular member of the reception staff that let the rest down.

Our room was spotless and well equipped with plenty of room and a powerful shower. The view from our balcony on the 4th floor (we did upgrade to a sea view) was amazing, with a stunning beach right outside the hotels grounds. There were plenty of sunbeds and lots of room to relax.

We also really enjoyed the food, plenty of choice and very fresh. We particularly liked the varied salads and seafood. Again, the restaurant staff were very friendly and efficient.

There's no denying that parts of the hotel do look a little tired, but this did not spoil our holiday in any way.

Room Tip: Amazing views from sea facing room on 4th floor.

We stayed at this hotel for one week in January 14. My first impression was old but very grand and very well looked after. The staff were lovely and all very helpful. Our room was lovely very clean and comfortable with complimentary fruit and port, towels changed daily and bed linen changed couple of times. Both breakfast and dinner are buffet style, with lots to choose from. Lovely seating area outside with plenty of sun loungers. For me the added bonus was to walk past the spa area and be on the beach, beautiful. Just watch out for the nudists (not a pretty sight)

Room Tip: Would ask for higher floor as a few big palm trees around pool area

This place is very tired. Anyone that says it is great has obviously not ventured very far.

Carpets throughout are old and have many stains.

Bed linen and towels both had holes in them.

Foul smell in our bathroom coming from the bat and sink plugs.

Air conditioning was not working.

Very difficult to find smoke free zones.

Entertainment not great.

Food is passable but not as good as other Riu Palace hotels we have stayed in and not replenished as quick as I would like.

Drink prices were very high.

Staff were friendly and the location on the beach is OK which helps as the pool area is very old fashioned and well worn.

I would not go back.

We stayed again in this hotel for 1 week - not because we like itso much but because the location is just fantastic. Together with the Riu Oliva Beach these two hotels are located directly on the Grandes Playas where the sea is beautiful and perfect to swim in and the beach simply perfect. Distance to Corralejo approx 7 km, bus station near by, by taxi approx 7-9 Euros.

The hotel is old and in urgent need for a thorough renovation. The elevators are small and rattly, WLAN was broken one day and on the others extremely slow. It is available only in the lobby, there it is free. The sliding door to the balcony in our room could not be locked, information to the reception brought no result. They charge 25 Euros per week for the safe in the room, which I find is outrageous, a deposit of valuables at reception is not possible. Breakfast and dinner buffet are good.

Riu is regularly increasing the prices and on the same time pushing down service features.
With the exception of 2 or 3 staff members at reception, staff in general is very friendly and really makes an effort.

Most of the guests are "regulars" and have long reached their pension age.

Very nice Hotel, right on the beach, great buffet breakfast & dinner, very friendly staff and left surprise birthday treats in the room for our daughter, she was wowed. On the negative we had very poor weather, first couple of days were ok but turned ugly and quite cold, wet and very windy, we expected the wind but not this strong, hired a car but nothing much to see, very desolate island, even with the rain nothing was blooming, the 'attractions' were very poor, local lave tube closed and looked like it had been for some time, the local Aqua 'Fun' Park was also closed and in a rusty state, the rest of the island is bare and bleak, not a lot to see or do, nearby town of Corralejo is probably the best place to visit, nice seafront bars and restaurants, you can walk from the hotel and when the weather is nice a pleasant walk, a bus ride back, great for kite surfers and the wind made it a joy for them, sadly not for us.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the beach.

Beautiful hotel in normal RIU Palace style rooms werte excellent and the whole place kept constantly spotless.
Helpful smiling faces on Reception which was the fastest I have experienced I had the keys and documentation before I had finished my Cava!!
Top Class food in an uncluttered and well set out restaurant which was run to a very high standard by Maitre'd Bernardo who checked with evereyone "every night"!! The atmousphere, food and service however in the Krystal Restaurant needs "a bit of work!" - it was nowhere near the standard of the same restaurants in Mexico and the Carribean.
Entertainment was to a good standard and the resident duo Paloma were very proficient and very entertaining.
The bar service was an excellent team effort led proficiently by Diego
The return taxi to Corralejo was around 12 euros and well worth a few trips to the shops, restaurants and bars - especially around the old harbour.
All in all a great holiday hotel and destination where I would certainly return.

The official rating for this hotel is 4 star and it's certainly a good quality one - not sure though how it rates the 5T given by Thomson Holidays. Lovely comfortable seating in the reception area which is popular due to the wi-fi access. Plenty of other seating around both inside and out of the building and we had no problems finding sunbeds by the pool. Couldn't always find a seat in the piano bar in the evenings however the bar in the entertainment room is also open most nights. Bedrooms are of a very good size and comfortable - we don't mind a firm mattress. We paid extra to have a sea view room and requested one with afternoon sun which is exactly what we got - thank you reception. Nice touch having bottle of wine and fruit in the bedroom on arrival. We were on half board and whilst there was a good variety of food options, the quality was not always the best. Some dishes were quite bland and items we had found previously in other similar 4 star hotels were missing e.g. mushrooms, hash browns from breakfast; potato and coleslaw type salads from the evening buffet. A couple of other minor points we noticed were the lack of little biscuits with coffees and bowl of nibbles with bar drinks. The hotel is a couple of miles from Corralejo (a rather commercial resort which is not to our taste) and there is a bus every half an hour from the end of the access road which costs 1.40 euros per person. If you are looking for a comfortable hotel in a quiet spot with access to beautiful beaches then this may well suit your requirements.
