We were the 3 time in this hotel and definitely not the last time. We feel there simply super comfortable, everything matched, and in the off season, if not more so a lot of guests are there, it is absolutely relaxing and enjoyable. We had very many german and french guests, otherwise mixed from completely Europa, also were all age groups represented. By the beginning of the autumn holidays were many families with children. read hotel review

    Our dearest animation team, with 6 people the work of 9 made. Also during the bad weather everything was tried, to keep the tourists in good moods. Many outdoor activities could not be implemented, in the bar salon was the most program held. Also had the barsalon during the rainy days already open during the day, so it was always with drinks. The entertainers did a great program delivered, the evening shows were all great, especially the rock-station-show and the premiere of hot stuff. Otherwise there was the crazy show, even after 30 times Riu always again nice to look at. There are 2 pools, 1 kid's pool and a heated indoor swimming pool. The beach chairs at the pool are badly in need of replacement, they are nearly all broken and only with tape fixed. There was enough space at the pool, the lounge chairs are however very cramped. The pool bar was open during the day, there one could sit comfortably. Also there were 2 large televisions for sporting events etc. Highly recommended is the wellness center. The ladies offer various treatments, we have the massage and massage tested and were very satisfied. .

    As expected great service. Warm welcome at check-in, quick handling and around 11 hours we could move into our room. In the restaurant and at the bar we have many famous faces seen again, all were very nice and make a good job. The directors are always present and help in the evening also times, if in the restaurant the tables are to be allocated. At the reception all spoke german and were always helpful. At the reception one gets against a towel card, the towels, where you can also every day from 09-12 o'clock the towels change. Also you get free bottled water. For 5 Euro deposit received a network cable for the laptop, so you can free in the room surfing, connection was very good.

    The off-season again had only the main restaurant is open and there was still the asian restaurant, which 6 days the week was open, one carries in the restaurant in a list, there are 2 meal times 6:45 p. m. and 8:45 p. m.. The main restaurant is in the evening always from 6:30 p. m. until 9:30 p. m. open, the food is in both restaurants offered in buffet form. Unfortunately we had this time in asia not much, the food was cooked, not hot anymore, we had much better in our memory. Therefore, we then only the main restaurant visited, where the food was very delicious, always fresh and varied. I understand people not, the complain about the food. We had a huge choice of meat, fish, pasta, appetizers, desserts, salads, every day a special court, we were totally satisfied. One shouldn't just on the first day already everything on the plate, but every day which new try, then it will not boring. Tasted always everything was top and also hot and fresh. The breakfast is also in order, this time there were even delicious omelets. Otherwise bread, rolls, sausage, cheese, jam, cereal, fruit, yogurt, pastries, different egg dishes. The food selection for lunch was like in the evening, very good salad buffet, pasta, pizza, fish, meat, vegetables etc. , large selection of desserts including several sorts of ice cream. Afternoon snacks. There is a bar in the barsalon, from 6:00 p. m. until 12:00 p. m. opened. The guys did a good job, were always in a good mood and mixed drinks, the not on the menu. The disco had 5 times a week, on the weekend is busy, if the spanish poleberry shopping center will, then will the atmosphere good. During the day the pool bar from 10:30-18 o'clock opened. There was a self-service counter or you order directly at the bar.

    We had in advance our wish emailed and just get this room. A standard room kat. 2 with an additional sofa bed, these rooms are a little bit bigger. We stayed in the top floor with a view over the hotel area and pool, and a great ocean view. The rooms are not clairaudient. The safe was electronic code number and very spacious. The bathroom is not very large with a bathtub, toilet and bidet. There was a hair dryer, the worked super. In the room was the double bed with great mattresses and lots of cushions. In the closet was plenty of space and also enough hangers. A large bureau with many drawers gave it also, which was very convenient. There was a small fridge (empty), in the free bottled water cool. The tv was the old röhrenmodell, this should be replaced urgently. There were enough german channels. The balcony was not very large, with table and 2 chairs. There was a large pull out clothes horse on the wall. The air conditioning worked well, the fan was a bit noisy.

    The hotel is located in the small village olhos de aqua, one drives about 30 minutes with the bus from the airport. Above in the place there is a big intermarche supermarket, otherwise small shops, restaurants and souvenir shops in the direction of the small promenade. There is also a car rental and a provider for excursions. Taxi rank is available and bus connections in all directions. There is also a pharmacy and a medical centre. The super nice and clean beach could be reached via stairs. One has the choice on the lovely wooden stairs right next to the Riu Palace. These steps has over 300 steps and it is in a small bay out, must then over stones and rocks to Falesia-beach 'climbing'. The abbreviation leads through the hotel Falesia mar, the stairs has about 150 steps and it is right on the long sandy beach of the hotel.

Dear families, we spent a week in this hotel. We were greeted by the manager personally. The room was very clean. The extra bed (folding sofa) was not so good, from the suspension. We talked to the problem and they brought a austauschmatratze, which was very good. We had booked all inclusive and didn't regret it. The food was very good and delicious. The cleanliness is especially deserves to be mentioned. After each leaving the table, the table cloths were changed. There were many german tourists in this hotel. There was a free safe. The towels for the beach chairs ... as well as a bottle of water per room was also free of charge. The entertainment was there, but not intrusive. It was a really great vacation without concerns and problems. A warm greeting to Ana in the service. It has helped, which one gladly to the hotel RIU Guarana reminds. read hotel review

    The walk to the beach was a bit of a hassle, but one was rewarded. Unique views, great waves and clean water. The area with a rental car to explore, was well worth it. (grotto Lagos, lighthouse sagers and much more)

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 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
