The bits that I felt needed improving were. Far...

We visited this hotel at the end of February for 11 nights and were just as impressed with it as with the other Riu hotels, which all seem good quality, lovely hotels. This one was especially pristine and our room was as good as any 5 star hotel we have visited. The staff are friendly, the food is a delight,...

We have been on quite a few all inclusive holidays over the past five years and this is easily the best experience we have had. The room was spacious, very comfortable and was meticulously clean on arrival and this standard was maintained by the daily cleaning. The food was exceptional with a vast choice of meals and cooked to a...

Housekeeping did a good job,room always nicely cleaned with fresh towels. Unfortunately my daughter was ill during the night.

It has been said so many times, but this hotel is fantastic. Have just returned from a weeks stay. Really clean everywhere, the food is varied, fresh and plenty of choice. Drinks are all of a very high quality - sparkly wine, beer, cocktails etc in plastic glasses at the pool bar, but in glasses at the Dunas bar. Wifi...

Had a girls trip and stayed at the Papayas for a week. Hotel was spotless, rooms clean everyday, sheets changed only once! Decor of hotel was modern and fresh. Staff were mostly friendly and helpful. Food was good plenty of choice, but geared more towards the German clientele, (but please get decent sausages and burgers) pool area was again spotless...

The Hotel is nice and clean, the pool could be much bigger. The food is really good, the Personal is very friendly. The WiFi is only at the Lobby free. We had already much better Riu Hotel with 4 Stars.

Spent three glorious weeks here. Probably the best hotel complex we've ever visited. Spotlessly clean and beautifully equipped. A truly "all inclusive" experience with NO extra charges for anything! No deposit for swim towels, no charge for the safe and FREE bottled water! We've never had that anywhere else in the world! Food excellent standard for "mass catering". Loved the...

Cannot fault the superb efficiency in running of the hotel - rooms well decorated - food & drink choice and quality very good -entertainment mediocre - but the package combination at the price is very good. The overall value for money is excellent but has a price to pay in overcrowding at evening mealtimes with the buffet being attacked with...
