We know the resort of Santa Eulalia very well, after spending our holidays here for several years. This was the first time we have stayed at the Riomar however, after walking past it so many times in the past! We were really impressed. For a two star hotel, it offers excellent value. It is spotless throughout. Our room over looking the sea (a must!) was very generous in size.... we were a family of four, comprising of two adults, a 13 and 9 year old. We had the biggest wardrobe we have ever had!! The top cupboard fitted all of our 4 suitcases. The hanging space was more than enough for all of our clothes, plus we managed to fit shoes and other clothes in there, with no problem.... I was so impressed, after the usual tight squeeze to fit everything in the normally "small" wardrobe space. It left the room feeling fairly spacious. The gorgeous view of the sea is fantastic..... what a sight to wake up to. We obviously knew about the air conditioning and did wake up fairly hot after the first couple of nights, but it didn't affect our sleep and after those initial "sweaty" mornings, we all just seemed to get used to it. The room is in the shade in the afternoon which helps. We left the balcony door open at night, plus the fan on. The gentle swishing of the waves was lovely to hear..... the tractor at 2am in the morning cleaning the beach not so great!!! But that was only one night and wasn't a problem.
The food was fine for us... we normally go to a four star hotel and obviously we could tell the difference, but we always managed to find something we liked. One of my daughter's is a fairly fussy eater and she enjoyed her meals everyday.
The staff were friendly, the rooms were cleaned each day and fresh towels put out. The hotel is really reminiscent of how Spanish hotels were about 15/20 years ago but I think this added to it's charm. It probably does need a refurb but this may take away its character. It was quite nice to have a proper key to your room, rather than a swipe card... even though it did look rather bizarre!!
All in all, we would definitely return.... you just can't beat this hotel's location or value for money.
