We have just returned from one week at the Riu Olivina resort. We stayed in the hotel part and whilst the rooms could be described as a little tired they were roomy, the beds very comfortable, the Samsung flat screen TV was as big as the one at home and it was spotlessly clean. The maids were in every morning without fail and you could not fault them. We were all inclusive and we did not spent one euro whilst we were there. The food it good, and I didnt eat the same main course twice all week. Always go for whatever chef is carving up, thats my advice. The drinks were plentyful and the cocktails were really good. Whilst we were there it was mostly an older european crowd which equals peace and quite, not a larger lout in sight despite the fact that if you wanted to drink beer morning noon and night you could. The staff were always happy despite their long hours.
We went with Thomson from Cardiff, on one of their new 747-800 dreamliner planes, all on time and I really couldnt fault the service.
The resort itself is very quite, if you are looking for a strip of clubs and bars you would be better off looking somewhere else, but the brocure does describe it as "away from it all" and that is a good description. We walked every day along the front towards the airport, where you can stand at the end of the runway and have the planes land over your head - most exciting.
Whilst the resort is only 10 minutes from the airport you dont hear noise from the planes, as they come in over the sea.
We really like Riu hotels, this is the second one we have visisted (last year we went to Fueteventura and stayed at one of their 4 star half board "Palaces") and I already have the brochure out looking at where to go next.
Would definately go back.
