8/10 Very good

Really exceptional, but one deadly flaw
This hotel is gorgeous and well maintained. We were upgraded to a better room and every single staff member was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner were included in our half-board rate. Food was top notch, better than cruise ship quality. Great mix of Spanish, German, and UK choices. The challenge was not to eat too much. Bar and wine prices were very fair (great spanish house wine 11€/bottle or slightly less). I will definately stay at other Riu hotels in the future BUT NOT THIS ONE. THERE IS AN UNFORGIVABLE PROBLEM: guests should plan on NO wifi available on the property. Connections in the room were zero. In public areas, there are so many conflicting wifi repeaters that your device will skip from bad connection to bad connection trying to connect. I was forced to do a highly interactive Zoom via mobile phone connection greatly annoying my colleagues and running over my 10gb of EU data which incurred a 20€ overage. The front desk said there will be no solutions until the building is rewired. I tried to connect using Android, Apple and Chromebook products from many different locations. If you need data at all, stay elsewhere. If you don't need data, you will be totally delighted by this hotel.

super clean, nice staff, swimming pool is amazing, reasonable price for drinks, tennis court is extra bonus. Shuttle bus helped us a lot to move around as well. we enjoyed our stay a lot. bad points, no wifi in the room and the dinner food quality is good, but still can be improved. overall, i highly recommend this place.

Loved the property and the staff will definitely return. Only negative about the half board was the evening meal protein which was not up to 4 star restaurant standards.

8/10 Very good

Good Bits. We had a great stay. All the staff were excellent, from the Reception, the Dinning Room & the Cleaners, what a 1st class job they do. The food in the restaurant is the best buffet food we've had, the choice is great & it's hot, with hot plates. The whole hotel is clean & well maintained, though it'll be interesting to see it next year after the refurbishment. Hopefully more plug sockets & USB sockets in the bedrooms. The standard bedrooms are clean, comfortable & spacious. Bad Thing. Noise Thanks to the reception staff who moved us after our 1st night, from above the restaurant & the noisey fan that kept us awake a lot of the night. 2nd room a lot quieter except for other guests. A sign in all rooms requesting guests to respect & show consideration to fellow guests that they would expect to be shown to them , especially between midnight & 8 am? Don't slam doors, keep TV volume low, Don't shout, Don't have your phone alarm go off at 5 & then 5.10 & then 5.15 etc. Unfortunately all our 4 nights sleep were unnecessarily noisey due to inconsiderate guests. Come on Riu, a small polite sign would go a long way Without the noise this place is 5 star & we will return next year, hopefully in a top floor, sea view room, as we were promised this time, but unfortunately didn't get.

Great hotel, perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday
Very quiet not for the youngsters, we had exactly what we wanted from this hotel a totally relaxed week. The Hotel was so clean and the staff very helpful . Food great with loads of cjoice. Took about 30 minutes to walk to a beach, great views better than taking the courtesy bus(which was freAt and ran to time)

Great week
From the moment we arrived and were greeted by a great reception team until the day we left a week later we experienced excellent customer service from all groups of staff. Our room was quite large and comfortable and overlooked a very pleasant garden and pool area which was very peaceful ... all the guests seemed to be there for one reason and that was to relax -- easily done. We booked bed, breakfast and evening meal --- the food was excellent -- huge range of high quality hot and cold food - not once were we stuck for choice. Congratulations to the catering team. The hotel is a little way out of town --- easy enough to walk down to - but uphill all the way back! The hotel provides a frequent shuttle service - but if it is not available when you want it a taxi will cost 4-5 euros. The whole hotel was clean and tidy Our only (very small) complaint was that the Wi-Fi seemed a little slow at times - but this was not an issue and did not in any way detract from the great stay we had at what was a 'quality' hotel. Recommended to all -- we would certainly stay here again
