The Riu Palace in Masplomas is a beautiful hotel with attentative staff. The rooms are very spacious as are the bathrooms with plenty of mirrors and fresh towels. We stayed in a room on the ground floor which provided a partial view of the sea and sand dunes from the balcony and caught the late afternoon sun. Gran Canaria is known for its wind but the terrace at this hotel protects it well. The food was lovely, plenty of choice and variety every night and themed nights as well. The hotel had mainly German couples staying and we did find that we had to wait for things a little longer as the Germans were served first. Pool side service was slow but this was mainly down to not having enough staff on during a particularly hot day. Out and about I would recommend visiting the Yumbo shopping centre, it is the biggest and the best shopping centre in my opinion. Food and drink away from the hotel was a reasonable price and two could eat a light lunch for under 20euro quite easily. Taxis stop outside the hotel and short journeys will cost you approx 2.50 euro. Beware the walk over the sand dunes towards the sea, it is a long way and hard work, much easier to taxi/walk to Playa del Ingles and access the beach here. Overall this hotel is what I expected from a 4/5star hotel and I will be looking to book a Riu hotel again this summer.
