Pros - the staff are very polite and attentive. The drinks are generous and plentiful. The 21 bus takes you to the airport for 2.5 Euros each. The 25 bus to Palma is only 1.5 Euro and Palma is well worth a visit. The cakes are good.
Cons - the place is pretty dated and has limped over from the 1980s I would say. Bits of it are just worn out. The food was generally just about OK, but on some nights it was just poor with inedible fatty meats. One night I just had chips and bread.
The TV only shows one british channel which is Sky News. As said before, they have wifi at 5E per day, or I think 15E per week, which would have been fine, but it only works in the lobby, no access from our bedroom.
We thought that as it was 3 star it would be OK because it is a Riu, but it was disappointing and is probably 2 or 3 years overdue for a refurbishment. I think we shall not book a hotel less than a 4 star from now on.
