Hotel Riu Nautilus

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 November 2011

I stayed at this hotel with my husband for a week. The room was very well adapted, apart from the balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom well equipped for a wheelchair user. The whole hotel was wheelchair accessible and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was extensive and very good indeed. We only did B & B so cannot comment on other meals. The hotel is next to the promenade which goes for miles and is totally wheelchair accessible. This is the only hotel I have found in Carihuela that is beachfront and really wheelchair accessible.

Back again to Riu Nautilus from 16th October for five nights. When we checked in we were told they only had one room available due to hotel being fully booked. I had e-mailed them a few days before requesting a room in the annexe on 2nd or 3rd floor. They replied that they could not guarantee my request but would try to do so. I was not told that the hotel was fully booked. The room we had allocated was in the annexe on floor 1. As we have stayed here before we knew this was not a good room for views. The other option offered was to transfer us to sister hotel Puerto Marina and then we would come back next day and they would have another room available. We went for the transfer option but when we arrived at Puerto Marina we discovered that were fully booked and could only offer us one room. We had no choice and we thought we would put up with this for the one night. Next day we went back to Nautilus and had to wait 75 mins to get a room. We did get a room eventually which was room 703 in the mail building. The room itself was lovely with a double sink in bathroom and large bedroom area. The only gripe was as we were on top floor the air conditioning on the roof above droned all day and late in to the night finally switching off at 12.30am. We will go back to Nautilus as it ticks most of our boxes. We do agree with some of the reviews that the Spanish and German do get better treatment from some Staff. We have noted that other reviews have commented on the fully booked issues.

Room Tip: If you can get a high floor in main building. We had a view of the sea to the left and a mountain vi...

Nothing bad about this hotel.Excellent staff excellent location excellent facilities. Only a stone's throw from beach-swimming pool excellent-food excellent. The only down side was that we only booked for a week!!!!

We stayed at the Riu for our first ever holiday abroad. The reception staff where excellent. Our room was spotlessly clean and kept that way every one of our fourteen nights.
The restaurant was excellent, breakfast superb and dinner enough choices to please any palette. The restaurant staff could not do enough to please.
We will be going back again next year

Linda, isle of Man.
Just returned from hotel after a week half board with my husband.We arrived midday and went straight to our room on 6th floor. Could see the sea and it was very private, The room was cleaned daily, even small fresh flowers and sweets.
The food was brilliant! Some thing for everyone and plenty of it. Could hear some noise from next room, but nothing major! Hotel was full of germans tho! Still loved it, we met some nice ones! Beach cleaned everday, and lovely walk to marina! 'The brothers' bar is ace for white coffee and cocktails:)

Room Tip: Our 6th floor room had a wall in between balconies,but lower rooms on opp side had clear glass, and...
