We have just returned from a weeks holiday to this hotel travelling with Thomson.
As with all Riu hotels you are guaranteed quality. Arriving quite late 9.00 p.m. we were advised to leave the check in ritual and go straight in for dinner. After a pleasant meal we completed the check in requirements and went to our room (2017) on the second floor. Quite a large room, twin beds, two armchairs, decent sized bathroom, loads of wardrobe and drawer space, balcony, Air con and fan. The only downside was an old style TV.
The food, not a bad selection on offer for both breakfast and dinner. A little bit repetitive but a decent variety on offer to meet most if not all tastes. The service was first class with friendly and attentive staff.
The pool area was good. 2 decent size pools and a paddling pool for children. Loads of sunbeds. Towels provided from Reception when producing your towel card. You were also given a keycard when arriving to give you access to the sister hotel next door and the many facilities available but not use of their pool. The fitness team organised several poolside activities. There is also a very good pool bar.
There is a large bar/entertainment area.
Going from the hotel a short walk brings you to the promenade. Turning left will take you to several very nice restaurants and bars and will lead you to a superb designer shopping mall (20/30 mins. walk) Turning right onto the promenade leads you to a small old fishing village (15/20 min walk) where there are 3 or 4 good fish restaurants and right at the end a restaurant serving a variety of food.
The hotel itself was built in 1998 although it looks considerably younger from the outside.
My only criticism is that some of the fixtures and fittings (taps and old TV) are needing replacement and I was told by the Hotel Director the hotel is due for refurbishment next spring.
I would certainly recommend this hotel. I don't think you will be disappointed.
