Had a fantastic 2 week holiday here. The service for drinks round the pool is the best we've had. The hotel is kept so clean and any slight issues are dealt with straight away. Good has been great too. Mario from the entertainment team has kept us well entertained.

From the moment of checking in (we have never checked in so easily before), to getting to our room, to exploring the hotel - we were both amazed. The hotel is exceptionally clean, the staff can't do enough to help (especially the...

Excellent stay November 2014 - rooms comfortable and clean, grounds immaculate and staff all friendly and polite. Met some great people during our stay. Pool needs a bit of TLC and the buffet was much nicer than the a la carte restaurants but all round great hotel - would definitely return.

Had a fantastic 2 weeks with my partner and 9 year old son. After an extra long flight as we had to land in Canada we where welcomed with cocktails and a very speedy check in, in the most opulent reception. The food was amazing, the only meal which was slightly disappointing was the steak at La Toscana but we...

We are currently still on honeymoon here, and can say this is not a 5 star hotel. We have stayed in several Riu Hotels in the past most of them 4 stars and had a fantastic holiday. All of them 4 stars have been better than this. First of all, the hotel in general looks no different to the other...
