Stayed 27 April -11 May. Travelled with Thomson Premium. Hotel Rep was excellent. Be aware that this 'Premium' hotel does not have airconditioning until 1 May and then only 8pm-midnight.
We are members of RIU Club Class and have stayed at quite a few of their hotels. We stayed at this hotel two years ago and had been very impressed. Not so much this time. On the whole this was a good holiday - just not what we expect from the RIU chain of hotels.
This hotel appears dated and ready for refurbishment.
Furiture is shabby and uncomfortable as are the beds.
Food/service was adequate.
Staff pleasant and hard working.
The majority of guests dressed beautifully for dinner but some guests were allowed in most inappropriate shorts. It is a shame that the management do not make guests adhere to 'long trouser for dinner' request.
There is a lovely balcony/bar outside the restaurant BUT I have never seen so many smokers. The smell was awful and, as the doors into the hotel foyer were open, (no airconditioning on at this time) it meant that sitting in the uncomfortable chairs in the foyer you were surrounded by cigarrette smoke.
Smoking was also a problem around the pool.
Finally, the weather was fabulous as is the area. So, being aware of the above especially if you are a non smoker, go and enjoy.
