I needed a week on my own, in a nice hotel in a sunny part of the world, and this was recommended. The Riu Olivina is a good 4 star hotel and is just 5 minutes walk from a great beach. I had a twin room in the main part of the hotel, on an all-inclusive basis, and I was more than satisfied.
My room was spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean. Although I was on the ground floor, with patio doors onto a small balcony area, the locking mechanism on the doors was excellent so I felt perfectly safe and secure.
I had no complaints about the food - the choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner was very good and meal times were very extended so you could eat early or late depending on your preference. You could also take breakfast and lunch outside on the terrace, which was really pleasant.The bar service was good, and it was self-service drinks (beer or wine) in the restaurant.
The pool area was good - lots of sun loungers, so you could even bag one if you didn't hit the pool until lunchtime. The entertainment staff had lots on offer during the day - including yoga; pilates; pistol shooting; shuffle-board;keep fit etc and quite a few people joined in each time.
I didn't take in any of the evening entertainment, but everything seemed to finish around 11pm in the hotel so you couldn't hear a pin drop after that - great for a good night's sleep!
The location of the hotel was a real bonus. Once you reached the sea-front, you could walk in either direction to areas with shops, bars and restaurants, or walk for an hour or more actually on the beach, paddling in the sea.
I had a great week at the Riu Olivina and would happily recommend it as a good 4 star hotel.
As an added bonus, I had fantastic weather the whole week - hot and sunny and not a cloud in the sky!!!
