Hotel is exceptional- staff are really friendly and always go the extra mile to help - especially Oliver on reception who helped to sort out our room on arrival after we were given a double instead of a twin. We were moved up to the fourth floor... More

We were given a room in an adjoining wing (annexe) at the back of the hotel (away from the pool) gained by crossing a small bridge . This is a 3 storey block rooms 3100 onwards. We initially felt...

We spent a week at the Riu Arecas in November 2016. On arrival we were met at reception with a glass of orange as we checked in. The reception team took our passports, got us to sit down and then called us when the paperwork was complete. All very smooth. The room was very clean and the cleaning staff kept... More

I have stayed here for 10 days. Most of the personal are friendly. The pool is a bit cold. Every morning there is a breakfast and that was very good. Dinner was also good.

I stayed on the fifth floor and had great sea views and sunsets to unwind with. The hotel is immaculate throughout with superb standards of service from all staff without exception and a... More
