Clean, beautiful, and first class staff. Always cleaning, helping, and making sure you don't need anything. I even had waiters walking my plate from the buffet to my table. Our room was clean and always turn down service. Food was great, all the restaurants were very good. The Steak house and Krytal were my favorite, and wine selection was pretty...

Just returned from a week here. The weather wasn't brilliant and there was a six hour delay on our return flight but I've tried not to let that affect my review. On arrival the room I had been allocated was dark with a small balcony in full shade. I had an email conversation with the front desk before I arrived...

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Riu Palace with my girlfriend for two weeks last September as we celebrated her 21st birthday and and our anniversary together. We hadn't originally booked here but were upgraded via Thomson and as soon as we saw the pictures we were taken back, it is a palace!! On arrival we were greeted...

The Riu Pacifico is clean, clean clean... grounds crew and lobby crew are constantly cleaning. I saw a lobby attendant follow a guest with a dripping bathing suit from the door to the front desk mopping up behind him.. The rooms are clean and have a great view of the ocean, however, the air conditioning could have been a little...

This is the third Riu we have visited and like the others, it was a well managed hotel but not a luxury experience. It is very large, so there is no feeling of a boutique or one on one experience. The food was quite good, but nothing special. The WiFi only worked well in the lobby of lobby bars. We...

Our second trip here and absolutely awesome again. Great food in the buffet and specialty restaurants. Not overcrowded like the other two Rius down the beach. Never have it wait to get a drink or meal or kayak or boogie board. Fantastic weather and resort is absolutely spotless. Well worth the extra cash.

14-28 November 2014. Well what can we say. My husband and I had a room on the 8th floor with a stunning view overlooking the sea, and saw some of the most spectacular sunsets ever. Having stayed in Riu hotels previously we knew what to expect, "as you get what it says on the tin" with a Riu, but this...

This place is amazing, one of the best holidays my husband and I have had and we are pretty well travelled. We found this hotel quite by accident having spent an horrendous week at Puerto Santo late last year we needed to get away somewhere nice to get over it.. This place not only met our high expectations but went...

This is the first time we have stayed at a Riu Palace and we would definitely go back. Everything was done for our comfort. From the lobby to the beach we were thoroughly impressed by the decor, the service and the overall cleanliness of this resort. We had no problem finding loungers on either the beach or the beside the...

Having read a selection of other reviews both before and after our visit I would like to say that as we visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary we couldn't have chosen a nicer place to visit. Junior suite was spacious and met all our needs for two weeks, the turn down service was hit and miss but hey I can...
