We are just coming to the end of our week at riu Costa del Sol. There are a lot of positives about this hotel: Renovated spaces: hotels, restaurants and other common areas are well appointed Food was good quality, not super exciting but varied and good tasting There were not a lot of queues despite hotel being full And the best was service. We have stayed in a few all inclusive resorts and have never experienced such pleasant staff: from reception to restaurants to cleaning staff. Everyone always had a smile while working hard under the intense heat. They made our vacation better, so thank you to the team and congratulations for the excellent work. The worst part is the noise. We can hear everything from the bedrooms around us and we could hear every step in the corridor. When you are traveling with kids and go to sleep early because kids tend to wake up even earlier on vacation, this can be upsetting after a few days of waking up with people happily going to bed at 1am. Soundproofing really doesn’t exist so you can expect to hear the people in the bars outside, people chatting int their balconies or kids running and laughing in the corridor. But it’s vacation and we have to go with the flow! My advice would be to open the restaurant for lunch as 12.30. For us 13h was a bit late as kids were tired and hungry. We had a great time and would definitely consider returning!

So this is our last day here in the RIU hotel and it has truly been a fantastic and wonderful time for us. Each and every member of the staff have worked effortessly to ensure our stay has been without fault whatsoever (and for this reason, I have to mention that other guests' negative reviews are mostly due to not understanding where you can and cannot consume food and drinks). The food, location, customer service, attention to detail, and general atmosphere of our time spent during our stay has been exceptional, and considering the choice of the 3 restaurants, quality of food and drinks, together with the genuinely friendly, polite (and at times unbelievably patient), team during these difficult times, we have been extremely happy with our choice here in the hotel, and are looking forward to booking our holiday here next year. Thanks again to everyone at the RIU! Darren and Susana.

We booked a 5 day stay here as our previous visit to this was cut short due to restrictions in Spain, It was an all inclusive relaxing few days by the poolside and nearby beach areas. Amador and Mario at reception were very helpful. We were upgraded for free to a suite. Victor the handyman came quickly to fix the safe which was faulty , Bed was extremely comfortable ,food was good quality and varied. We will return.

We were originally booked into the Nautilus but it closed the week before our arrival due to Covid-19 (or lack of guests). Anyway, the Riu Costa del Sol is about 10 minute walk to the nearest train station of La Colina, 20 minutes away from the airport. So really convenient, you could be checking-in within an hour from landing at the airport. The service throughout was excellent, from reception, the bar and restaurant staff to the maids, everyone was helpful. There is food 24 hours, yes the food can be repetitive, just like in any other buffet place, but there is plenty of it. There is an Italian restaurant that opens some evenings where you need to book in advance, so download the hotel app and book it through there. For us that was the best food. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean, housekeeping did a good job. In fact, all areas of the hotel are really clean. We booked sea view and the views were amazing, it does make a big difference. The beach is just seconds away, you need to cross the road but it's not a busy one. And there are facilities to wash the sand off your feet too. There are 3 things I would ask Riu to change or improve: ban smoking in pool areas (please!), ban guests from playing their own loud music on their phones and allow guests to change the pool towels at any time.
