I have long been a fan of the RIu Hotel chain but this is one I will not be returning to, nor would I recommend it for single travellers. First the good points. The Hotel is located just a short walk from the main promenade, beach and shops, plus the Yumbo Centre and bus stops are all within 100 yards....

The rooms were very quite and the terrace in front of the bungalow was ideal to play games or cards when the children were asleep. The bedroom had a air conditioning which worked really well. The rooms were a...

This is the first time we choose a Riu hotel and it won't be the last time. The ambiance is a bit outdated or "classic" so to say. The food is good. We had breakfast and dinner included. It excellent food but above average compared to other hotels I know with "buffet" food. The most positive points are its location...

Having just arrived home from our holiday I felt I had to write a review. From start to finish the service was amazing, from champagne on arrival to the use of a room after we checked out for showers. In particular anamarie and Jose were superb!

Popped down south for a weekend to see some friends. I had stayed here 2015 also. I have stayed in a few Riu Hotels in Playa Del Ingles and to be honest I find their staff very stiff. Maybe it is the clientele that stay in the Riu hotels. This hotel is a bit different. The staff are friendly and...
