For the money we paid we thought this was great value. Very clean everywhere. No 'special' vegetarian food but lots of vegetable dishes, pasta etc. Never much of a queue for drinks or serve yourself.
This is really 2 sites - annexe and hotel each with its own pool and restaurant. The annexe restaurant was only open for breakfast whilst we were there but it advertised opening for evening meals from end of Feb. Evening entertainment was only in the main hotel.
We, for the first time ever did not leave the site once, as we went for a last minute rest. We enjoyed lounging round the pool - loads of sunloungers left (perhaps because the weather wasn't brilliant whilst we were there) walking along the beach and paddling. The kite surfers are amazing to watch (I counted 24 at once if you walked 5 mins from the hotel) We also really enjoyed the riu fit programme. We did stretch and body exercising (very gentle) at 10.30 followed by aquafit in the pool at 11.30 (great fun) and then aerobics or zumba some afternoons (harder!) People were very friendly and instructors were great.
There was a massive queue to check in but after 20 mins or so we were sent off to lunch and told to come back later which was a good idea. Reception staff very helpful.
All in all we loved it and would go back again. Some people have said it is need of refurbishing but we thought it was fine and if it was done up we probably wouldn't be able to afford to go again!
