Hotel Riu Palace Tres Islas
Ranked #11 of 45 Hotels in Corralejo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Just returned from Riu Tres Islas Palace, it having been our third visit. The hotel is just as wonderful as ever. All the staff, and I mean all the staff, were just so friendly and very very helpful. The food is as good as ever. We had a sea view room on the second floor and the views are just amazing. Can't wait to return. If anybody reads any negatives reviews on here please ignore them because there is always somebody ready to moan and there is nothing to moan about at this hotel. We will certainly be going back time and time again.

Room Tip: It is worth paying the extra for the sea view.

For past 6 years all our holidays have been in Riu Hotels mostly Palaces
I have to say that this hotel was the worst for smoke..... They would not open the theatre for the entertainment but chose instead to use the terrace area where you were surrounded by smokers there was no where to sit without smoke apart from the bar which only seated about 40 people
The entertainment was stuck in the 1970-80s with oompah music! Beijing acrobats, abba and even Elvis
Fantastic beaches a plus for this hotel but not the usual Palace standard

Room Tip: Most of the sea view rooms don't get the sun on your balcony although you do get magnificent vie...

My husband and I visited this hotel from 16th - 23rd October.
The hotel is set on a beautiful stretch of beach. It was ideal in the morning after breakfast to go for a long walk and burn some calories.The hotel is a little old fashioned in parts but it also has a nice homely feeling in the lobby etc.The rooms are adequate but again could do with a bit of a refurb.The rooms are kept spotlessly clean each day by the pleasant ladies.
There are two pools. These were cold to get in initially but once in were very pleasant. There is also a small childrens pool and two jacuzzis. It was also nice to swim in the sea but the waves can be quite forceful at times. There are nudists further down the beach so if you are offended by this it is not the place for you.
The restaurant was very pleasant with a wide variety of food each morning and night. I did not find the staff in the restaurants particularly friendly. I asked one for advice about the choice of wine but she was not very helpful. They are however extremely busy with lots of tables to attend to. Went to the Krystal restaurant one night. Do not be put off by the disgusting appetizers that they serve first. After this it was very nice food but not very big portions if you are hungry.
The entertainment at night was a bit boring at times, same resident singer and keyboard player. There were other acts occasionally which were quite good. The music and entertainment stopped at 11 oclock every night. I thought the price of some drinks were expensive. Expect to pay between 7-8 euros for a cocktail. Spirits were 6-7 euros and then the price of the mixer. Sangria was very nice at 4.5 euros.
There were some nice touches in the hotel like a basket of fruit, half bottle of wine and full bottle of cava in the room on arrival.
Went into Corralejo a couple of nights. There are some nice bars to sit and listen to music or there are a couple of rock bars with good bands. There is usually someone waiting outside who would be willing to share a taxi and share the costs. 7-8 euros into Corralejo.
We have stayed at the Riu Oliva two years ago, and these two hotels are poles apart. However the Oliva is still good value for money.
All in all we had a pleasant stay and a nice relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 550. This room did not get the late sun but had fabulous views over to Lobos and Lanz...

Our first visit to this hotel and we will be going back next year, the setting is fantastic with beaches that can easily rival the Caribbean. Staff are all friendly and the food is just soooo good, I defy anyone to find fault with it!!
Room was spacious and as we were there for 14 nights we upgraded to a sea view and what a view.
This is not a hotel for non stop night life and if you want to be in the centre of things then I suggest that staying at Corralejo would be best for you, but if you just want to relax and unwind BOOK NOW!

Room Tip: If staying longer than a week upgrade to sea view

First time visiting the Riu Palace Tres Islas after trying Riu Hotels in different locations so it was always going to be a comparison to previous holidays. However, we not disappointed. On arrival at the hotel we were allocated a room on the 1st floor after having requested by email a room on a high floor, although we were moved 2 days later to a lovely, bright & sunny room on the 4th floor which had stunning views over the dunes and of the sea. All staff were so helpful and polite. The army of cleaners were fanastic and top marks for cleanliness throughout the hotel.

The restaurant provided an excellent variety of food. However I did think that the hot food at breakfast was not quite as plentiful or replenished as quickly as at other Riu hotels. The lunch menu at the pool bar was excellent and there was a lovely area with tables overlooking the sea and wonderful beach.

The location of the hotel was superb having two beaches to chose from direct from the Hotel grounds and we had daily strolls along the beach. The pool areas had ample sunbeds available although the best spots were always 'reserved' by the early birds! During our stay one of the pools was completely re-tiled and whilst this did limit the amount of sunbeds and there was some disruption, it was not a big problem.

This was a perfect choice of hotel for a really relaxing, recharge the batteries type of holiday. I should add - still not our favourite Riu Hotel but definately a close runner-up and we would return.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor - rooms overlooking the dunes get the sun in late afternoon/early evening.

We visited the hotel again last November with my parents and have just returned from a weeks break at the beginning of October. It just gets better and all the things we love about it are still to be found. The food is fabulous, the staff wonderful and the setting beyond belief. This place feels like going home.

Fantastic hotel! All the staff are extremely hard working, efficient & happy. There is good staff morale which makes all the difference, you will never see any of the waiting staff standing still & their standards are high. They all have a smile on their faces and always attentive without being over bearing.
Check in was quick, we hadn't even got off the coach before our cases were taken in for us, and they didn't hang around or even expect to be tipped. We were offered a glass of champagne & a seat while the finished checking in previous guests. We didn't have to wait long & were checked in in a matter of minutes. Everything was explained quickly but clearly & they spoke very good english. We went straight to our room to find our cases already there. We paid a little extra for a sea view room which was worth it. (There are very few rooms which don't have a sea view but they are smaller & have noise from a generator & the road). Our room was spacious & very clean, what more can you ask? After reading previous reviews about the hard beds, I asked when checking in, for a mattress topper. As it was 9pm it was too late to get one but was promised one for the next day, and we got it. The beds are very hard so it is worth asking.
Food is plentiful for both breakfast & dinner, and it is very good quality. You get given a set table on your first evening for dinner but you can sit anywhere for breakfast. You can choose a 6.30pm or 8.30pm dinner & they don't mind if you decide to change your time. Men do have to wear trousers for dinner too.
The pool area is large with plenty of sunbeds but many get ‘reserved’ very early in the morning! Even though there are written rules about not reserving the beds, this is ignored & not controlled by staff at all. The beach is very close, just a step though a gate, and is vast. We had many strolls along the beach & walked into Corralejo using a coast line path.
A beautiful location for a relaxing holiday, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a mattress topper & sea view room.
