beautiful birthday holiday

I found the hotel very clean and comfortable. It was well equipped and tastefully decorated. All of the staff I spoke to were curteous, conscientious, smart and genuine. The food was very good, of good quality and variety, the dining room was very spacious and light, tables were cleared quickly without fuss. The information given by staff, was accurate, and the entertainment was good

new years eve 2 night break

As soon as we walked into the hotel the reception staff were lovely, they informed us that we could go and have lunch and they would check us in afterwards. After our lovely lunch we were checked in given our keys and all information about the new years eve gala dinner and presented with a glass of bubbly, it only got better after that the gala dinner was absolutely lovely, all staff were friendly, happy and couldnt do enough for you, the entertainment and party bags were great fun, you could not fault this hotel it was spotlessly clean, with staff working 24/7 with smiles on there faces, our room was very nice, i would definitely go back in fact looking forward to going back the same time next year. Great value and a great time food excellent thank to all staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Nice Hotel and very good value

Clean hotel with excellent staff all round. Meals very good in airy large dining room with plenty of space. Drinks are of a good standard and served in nice good quality glasses. However two very important things about this holiday just reduced our enjoyment and did put us and other guests off. There were parties of guests(women especially) who were very badly behaved and who used really loud bad language when in areas such as around the pool. We did not come on holiday to listen to this so we had to avoid this area. There were professional entertainers on certain evenings - if you could get a seat in the concert room which sadly was not large enough to hold all the guests when the hotel was busy. It was often so noisy that you could certainly not appreciate their efforts which was a pity. Then there was the karaoke - dreadful! These were the only downsides but important and certainly not expected in a 4 star Riu Hotel. I have to say that our party of 4 adults were otherwise looked after by very attentative staff all week. The bar staff in particular were most professional together with the maid service and dining room waiters. We would visit this hotel again but would hope that there was better supervision to stop the few obvious holidaymakers spoiling it for others.

Hyvä loma - ruoan suhteen toivoisi lisää vaihtelua

Lomailimme huhtikuun alussa 2016. Hotellin sijainti on hyvä rannan tuntumassa - vuokra-auto oli hyvin vähällä käytöllä ja oikaestaan tarpeeton. Henkilökunta hoiti hommansa hienosti. Hotelli ei ole ihan uusi ja se vähän näkyy mutta ei haitaksi asti. WLAN on maksullinen, hidas ja toimii vain hotellin aulassa. Olimme viime vuonna viikon Kanarialla Riu Papayas-hotellissa ja siihen tasoon verrattuna all-inclusive tarjoilu oli meille lievä pettymys - odotimme vieläkin enemmän valinnavaraa, vaihtelua ja erikoisherkkuja.
