“It gets better and better”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Just returned from a two week holiday at the Riu Palace commencing 6th February 2012.
The Hotel has everything we could wish for, being situated on the lovely promenade at Meloneras and set in attractive and well maintained grounds.
The general facilities are of a high standard, as are restaurant meals, with speciality cooking each evening.
Most evenings, entertainment is provided which again is of a good standard, with the resident band playing each evening.
We have stayed at quite a few Riu Hotels in the past, and this one, for us, stands out as the best. Their repeat bookings must be very high.
What makes this hotel so special, is the friendliness of the staff with service of a very high standard.
There are so many members of staff worthy of mention, that we would simply say to Marina Lopez Arias the Hotel Directora, Congratulations and thank you. Its your staff that keep us coming back to your Hotel, year after year.

First time visit to Meloneras having stayed a number of times in Playa Del Ingles, which is now looking very tatty. The hotel and its facilities are excellent, and as everyone else seems to say, the staff are fantastic, especially Martin the singing and dancing bar waiter!! We stayed in one of the apartments within the grounds and it was excellent. It had a lounge with TV and radio, mini bar, large bedroom and bathroom, and private balcony. Plenty of storage space too. Food was plentiful and there was a good choice, even for my parents. We would not hesitate to return and I'm sure my parents will before us, as they have more spare time!!

Room Tip: Apartments within the hotel grounds are quieter.

I dont normally review something if I have anything negative to say so please dont think this is a bad review its just I was a little dissapointed.

First of all let me say the staff at the Riu Palace are first class and I cant fault any of them, theyre so friendly and helpful and are truly the best asset of this hotel. The hotel itself is immaculately clean and the public areas are spaceous, but its the decoration that lets this place down. Now I know you dont go away to spend hours in your room but surely when you pay for 4star it should reflect this, but the Riu Place is stuck in bad 80s decor, not that the furniture etc is in bad repair its just a bit drab. I did put this down to the fact that the majority of the clients staying there were quite senior but thats no excuse for letting things slip. We last used a Riu about 6 years ago and things are still the same, I suppose if thats what you like then thats fine but in such a competative holiday market you can get that that little bit more that makes something stand out and thats why I think we normally have a villa and do the more independant holiday.
Do use the Krystal dining facility, this is more in line with the modernsation thats required, it would be better if the Riu offered a more flexible dining option instead of the buffet every night and the "show-cooking" isnt that good. But for a week of winter sun it was fine and Meloneras is a nice resort with good restaurants. I would recommend lunch at the Ciao Ciao, good service and nice food. PS if you do an excursion do the Wine trip, its not really about wine and Craig the tour guide is brilliant and so informative about Gran Canaria and its history and culture it was one of the best things about this holiday.

Room Tip: be careful, some of the people we met complained their rooms lacked daylight

Well, we returned yesterday from yet again another wonderful holiday at the Riu Palace Meloneras. The weather was a bit changeable but it is February. The staff were absolutely first class as usual, nothing is ever too much trouble for them. The grounds of the hotel afre incredibly well maintained and looked after, as is the pool area and the pool restaurant.The clientele do seem to be getting older but that has its benefits and disadvantages, for my husband and I it is a benefit because we like the quiet life, not that we do not like children enjoying themselves, but it can be quite noisy at times. We will certainly be returning again. hopefully later in the year.
