When booking our holiday through Thomson's they didn't have the option for adults only section, but emailed the hotel for us to express our wishes. Riu Touareg returned the email within minutes, yet couldn't do anything until we arrived. On arrival we asked about an upgrade and was told we could go in the adults only section for around £365....

The hotel is great and the staff lovely. Adults Only offers a different experience and is much quieter and calmer, definitely worth the €182 per room per week upgrade. (Apparently much cheaper than if pre-booked) The only real downside is the first impression with check in, it was a horrible 55 minute wait in a queue. Made worse by Thomson...

I went here with my friend and 22 year old daughter. I was worrying after reading all the negative reviews that they would be disappointed but thankfully they loved it. I wanted to book the adults only but they could not accommodate this as a party of three. I then asked for the new block but had same response but...

I was worried before I came here, after reading some of the reviews but I surprised after arriving about how people could be so negative about the place. I am currently sat in the bar, enjoying the sun and I really love the place. The food is what you would expect of a decent all inclusive, if people can't find...

Laughing so much at some people's reviews for this hotel. I don't understand how people can fault it. The beach is beautiful, yes the red flag is out but you can still paddle and some people risked it and went in anyway. If you're lucky you might spot a whale. The pools are lovely, there is always a lounger to...

We arrived at the hotel after an interesting drive, slightly bumpy but the driver took it steady. Reception and booking in took no time at all, friendly and helpful staff. We were given a room with a wonderful view over the pool and beach, even saw some whales surfacing from our balcony (amazing) The room was clean and kept clean...

When we arrived at the hotel I actually wondered if I had been reading reviews for the right hotel. I honestly don't know what some people want, we read a lot of negative reviews about this hotel and I honestly don't see what peoples problem is. It is absolutely spotless and the staff work amazingly hard from the minute they...

A hotel in such a beautiful place doesn't have to work hard to get great reviews. This hotel is not only stunning in so many ways but centres itself on the people who come here for their holidays. This is our second time here and we are not disappointed in the slightest. We had a problem yesterday (through no fault...
