Really looking forward to holiday but was dubious as to how it would be after reading reviews before we went. Airport very cute to be fair, a kind of 'shack' with thatched roof. On arrival to hotel, check in was quick, however didn't get a welcome drink which was given to other guests off same coach on arrival. Room was...

I was a little apprehensive having read some Tripadviser reviews, and have very high standards, but having just got home I can't think of any way in which our holiday could have been better. Premium First Choice was worth taking up, ensuring a brilliant flight with excellent food, and we arrived to find a gorgeous location for our hotel. The...

The setting is wonderful. Straight out onto the Beach with plenty of loungers both in the complex and on the beach. The swiming pools were fine but perhaps a tad busy when aerobics is going on. The swim up pool always looked busy. For a more relaxing swim go to the other pool - less noise, some nice shady areas....

I would have to agree with other people that I would give this hotel a 4*. As for other peoples poor feed back I must have gone to a different hotel.

We'd booked this holiday over a year ago and had stayed in a few Riu hotels before, so we had an idea of what to expect. We flew premium class with Thompson (which was fantastic) and arrived on the island refreshed and ready to begin our holiday. The airport was hot, however that was to be expected as it was...

After getting married here in 2006 we revisited and hoped things had stayed the same. Our hopes were not dashed as the service and complex were as good or if not better than before. The staff cannot do enough for you and the atmosphere is brilliant. Would visit every year if we could xx

“Possibly closer to the activities centre so long they don't mind the music. But the walk to the rooms are a great pleasant experience.”

“You can have a laugh at the main lively pool or choose to relax near a quieter pool.”

“I had and old fashion room but it was much closer to a restaurant and main part of the hotel! Choose room on the top floor.”

“Ask the front desk to let you see several rooms before you pick one. The closer you get to the Lobby, the noiser.”
