Right when we arrived in the hotel you by the total hit. As already mentioned in other reviews, this hotel was already very large. But as we in the hotel direction reception ran, reduces this size in our opinion a lot. The hotel plant makes a really neat impression. Everything very clean and orderly. I must first take. I could on the first morning the guest structure clearly. Starting from half 8 o'clock in the morning the best places at the two large pools occupied by towels. These were then of course in the afternoon to inside not more occupied. ... But that is apparently as a package holiday, as the pilots to its landing to congratulate. This club is a pure all-inclusive club. It can not be selected. The hotel has over 500 rooms. We had originally booked a best-price room. These rooms are facing the street and not facing the pool. The rooms to the street are mostly the straight numbers, the better and a bit larger rooms with the odd room numbers. We had with the hotel an upgrade discussed. So we could for the whole week for 70,00 Euro a double room type 2 relate. Room was a dream and perfect for us. You get on arrival 2 maps for beach towels. Wlan is ridiculously expensive and works only in the lobby at the front desk. read hotel review

    A big compliment to the entire hotel staff. From the front desk from, this great team of room cleaning to the service staff, all very friendly and courteous. I am a german really not, necessarily speak your language, but all speak really good german. The manager was with us every day in the area to see and you also had the feeling, that he his job really serious. The room cleaning is to be highlighted. As we moved into our room, was a very pleasant scent in the room. There one feels welcome and immediately cared for.

    The hotel is not in albufiera, but in olhos de agua. This is for an individual arrival very important to mention. Transfer time from the airport to the hotel are about 30-40 minutes, depending on the bus driver and route. With our transfer to the airport, we took only 25 minutes, to the hotel but 40 minutes, since the bus drivers on the highway drove. The gorgeous beach Falesia, as you know, one of the most beautiful beaches ever is about 10 minute walk from the hotel. You can either the super beautiful stairs to the left of the Riu Palace take, or the stone staircase in the neighboring hotel next door. The way but be found quickly. The place itself is very quiet. A few nice little bars and restaurants. Just from the hotel under to the left and then immediately left the whole road down. Then one comes after 2 small left turns right into the ' done ' ☺ if you from the hotel on the left of the road and at the t-junction and turn right out and the traffic lights right again goes, then also the bus stop to albufiera or in the direction of vilamoura. Although not directly at the beach located for us it was perfect

    So we had a double room, type 2 transferred. This room type is facing the swimming pool and is a bit bigger than the standard room, with a couch. We booked this room only dialed, as i in the morning a view to enjoy. But i have never been in a southern country experienced. The water pressure in the bathroom... Sensational. No matter when, you always had a high water pressure, perfect. The room also features a large, free safe. My i-pad had enough room. The closet was enough, because one also still another cabinet with drawers has. Additionally different pillows and 2 blankets. In addition there was a ceiling fan and the short stay in the room was a delight. Minibar in the room, but it was not stocked. Which however not is bad, since you get a bottle of water every day free of charge at the front desk can pick them up.

    Unfortunately most are down with tape sticky. And if there was new beach chairs, these around half 8 o'clock in the morning completely to the haunt razed. We were 3 times at the pool and each time have had old, laminated chairs. As already written. If you as we strictly after rule makes and the beach chairs only used, if one really hinliegen wants, is here at the ar... The world. Now were but only 800 people in the hotel. I would like however not with 1000 people imagine. The entertainment was only a little pushy. In the afternoon then, what else, bingo. Everything was clear, or?

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    Now comes a little the problem child this hotels. The restaurant. There was a main restaurant for breakfast, the after hour breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, before abendessensnack and for dinner. For dinner you can either the classic hotelbüfett choose, or next door in the asian reserve. No matter, whether in the early or but also in the evening a disaster. A atmosphere in a bad german cafeteria. A volume, bad. But there the hotel can even not much for it. My opinion is the following. In this impossible atmosphere the guests mainly. Obnoxious treatment behavior, if 10 people waiting, must the next 5 people in between press. The other tries with your reflex camera the best photos from the buffet for home to shoot. The of course not disturb and photograph everything exactly. Furthermore, of course also with the all inclusive, of course, the plates so fully loaded, until the last fish from the plates fly. As you quickly at the dessert buffet past, although you a soup will pick you up and in passing by, get with his hands a few strawberries from the bowl. I at this hotel often foreign be ashamed. It would be but apparently so easy to resolve. The neighboring Riu Palace is right 2 times for the dinner. Then you are in a list and if that is full, unlucky and it is simply later to eat. You could it is to each full hour try. As in previous reviews have already been written, is, is 1000%. The buffet in the evening repeat every 2. day. No matter, whether in the restaurant or but also the desserts. But that is however rather because of the guests, since many quite no matter is, the main meal.

I was at this hotel with my girlfriend at the end of October, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I found the evening entertainment somewhat boring in comparison to other RIUs. The average age of the guests was, despite peak time, higher than expected. All in all, I would still visit this hotel again any time and also recommend it. read hotel review

Very nice, relaxing holiday. It was our first time in Portugal, but we will be back. The hotel Riu Guarana can only be recommended. The price-performance ratio was perfect. Many Riu hotels are a little dated and we had some reservations. This complex was, however, very impressive. read hotel review

Very nice hotel with friendly staff! The table cloths were immediately changed after every meal and the tables were laid again. With the entertainment team one could always have a nice conversation, as well as with all other employees! Every day there would be entertainment for the young and old, be it, Boccia, aerobics or a game of bingo in the lounge. read hotel review
