we stayed at this hotel for 8 days. Welcome at reception was average. We found lots of staff on reception with limited English. Hotel was 75% Germans. We asked for a high room (floor 2 or 3) and had to wait a couple of hours for someone to check out. (We arrived at 11.30). The wait was well worth it. If you don't have a sea view some of the balconies on the lower floors are buried in the gardens. As it was our balcony looked out on the service road next to hotel although it did not inconvience us that much. Noise was OK. The hotel is strange in that it takes a while to find your way around. Reception area is dark and rooms are OK but bathroom not spacious.
On the plus side the location is superb right on the beach and about 5 minutes walk to bellamedena. The pool area is large and the swimming pool usually fairly empty. Loads of unbeds and umbrellas. Don't worry if you can't get an umbrella just ask a member of staff and they will find one or pinch someone elses that isn't being used. Despite the number of Germans the only people to reserve beds seemed to be the English. Sunbeds and umbrellas are on beach but they are 9 euros a day. The service at the bar and restaurant was excellent and the food up to the usual Riu standard. Entertainment in the evening was average but there are lots of bars, pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance.
All in all acceptable but not outstanding. Would I recommend it NO would I put someone off going again NO. Would I go back again NO
