After my first stay in a Riu hotel in mexico I was totally blown away with how amazing it was. This hotel was ok, but not as good as a previous stay with Riu. The hotel is clean and tidy, some parts are quite dated and in need of upgrading. From other comments I can say 90% of the customers here are german and sadly that means most of the staff speak german, none of the staff I spoke to spoke clear english, The menu for dinner although has theme nights it mainly german oriantated. If I did stay here again I would not have the dinner package added as it did not seem worth it and the selection was very limited unless you are into german foods. The pool area is clean and tidy, but finding a waiter is not alway easy. At one point it was quicker to walk to the bar and pay for the drink than wait for the waiter to come over. The rooms are quite old fashioned, remind me of a 70's room, but water pressure is really good and hot, which is not always the case. If you are hiring a car out dont expect to get parking space in the hotel grounds as most of the maids use them. Views are excelent from here and everything is only a couple of euro taxi drive away. It is nice enough and I would mark it 7/10, I think that I was so amazed by the Riu in mexico my expectations were to high but in fairness it was nice enough and think most people would be happy here.
