We stayed at Riu Garoe for 10 days over x-mas in 2011. The room itself was comfortable, the bathroom even more so, and we also got a small terrace which was lovely (we took a standard room so did not expect that). The food was outstanding - we had half board but not once did we tire of eating dinner in as the variety and quality of the offerings went way above our expectations. The staff were, without exception, friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make the stay comfortable also for our 14-month-old son. The pool area was large, with possibilities to lounge on grass, which was nice. The pool and kid pool were clean and inviting. The hotel is rather far from the city centre and the beaches, but a taxi will take you there in less than 5 minutes, plus there are several shops, restaurants and a lovely botanical garden very close to the hotel. The average age of guests is relatively high, as in most Puerto de la Cruz hotels (most younger guests head to las Americas in the south) and it seemed that the majority of guests were German. All in all, a wonderful, relaxing holiday. We will definitely try other Riu resorts after this experience.
