We have stayed at this hotel on three previous occasions when it was part of the Riu Group.
After a gap of 3 years, we returned in 2011 and found the hotel had been quite extensively re- furbished. The loungers, outside tables & chairs and balcony furniture were all high quality rattan (in lieu of the previous plastic) and both outside and internal areas of the hotel had been refreshed and improved.
Better still, I don't think there was any change in the staff, who are always cheery and helpful.
The hotel director even kindly let me charge my ebook reader via her computer usb port when I encountered difficulties with the mains charger I had newly bought.
If you are looking for a quality hotel in a superb location, next to the beach and seek primarily a chill-out holiday with generally excellent weather - look no further.
