This was our first stay in a Riu hotel and our second visit to Puerto de la Cruz. The hotel is situated in a quiet area about twenty minutes walk from the centre but a courtesy bus runs free from the hotel and is very punctual. Rooms in the hotel are spacious and very well looked after with tea and coffee making facilities which are replenished on a daily basis, if you wish your bed linen to be changed there is a card which you place on the bed and the maid will duly oblige, towels that require changing are just left in the bath. There is a mini bar in the room which is also replenished daily and the prices for the contents are very good value (be sure to look at this).
Pool area is very clean and well looked after by the attendants and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. Sunbeds are plentiful and never a problem to get one.
Food in the hotel also excellent plenty of choices for breakfast and dinner to suit everyone.
Lunch can be taken in the pool bar area and is reasonably priced the only problem I found was that there was no visible drinks tariffs.
The surprising thing to us about this hotel is that there is no dress code for dinner and anything seems to go from jeans and tee shirts to three quarter trousers, flip flops for men and the women also didn't make much effort, so I wouldn't go packing your evening wear as we returned with most of our dressier clothes unused as we would have felt over dressed and out of place.
Over all an enjoyable stay but not one we will be repeating.
