We have enjoyed our weeks holiday here. All the staff have been exceptionally pleasant and attentive. The Krystal restaurant which we ate in tonight was excellent. Book as soon as you arrive to ensure a place. The food at the buffet restaurant is also very good.

Upon arrival, check in was swift and we were offered a complimentary glass of fizz. Our room was a partial sea view room in the main hotel rather than the outer buildings. The room was modern, very well appointed and had everything we needed for our stay. (It’s worth noting that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in... More

We loved everything about this hotel. The location was local to nice bars & restaurants and entertainment. The staff were extremely helpful & totally put my being gluten free concern to rest which is crucial when I'm abroad. The food was great, food by the pool came hot & speedy. Pools are beautiful. Room was lovely! If you're thinking about... More

I don't think I have ever given five stars to a hotel but this place thoroughly deserves it. We had half board and there was just nothing one could criticise. The room was excellent although the view was practically zero (first floor) but everything worked. Breakfast and dinner were first class and so were the outdoor facilities. The WiFi signal... More

Another visit to this excellent hotel. Unfortunately standards have slipped just a bit. Room maintenance is a bit of an issue; just small things, but if the rooms were checked regularly they would be picked up instead of guests having to report them. The evening entertainment is not great but as we don't voluntarily take advantage of this it is... More

Great hotel, used to visit before refurbishment and was interested to see if it was still as good following fairly major changes. Happy to confirm that if anything it is better; friendly staff, magnificent food and fantastic pools/facilities. Can't wait to return.

Very good resort on a very good location in Meloneras/Las Palomas. Excellent clean room and bath room. Ample pool and sun bathing facilities. Exellent buffet restaurant. The two separate restaurants have limited capacity and should be booked well in advance. Shops, cafes & restaurants and beach all on walking distance via a paseo along the seaside.

Given that the definition of 5 star varies from resort to resort I will compare this hotel to the Lopesan Boabab also 5 star where I have stayed 5 or 6 times and the hotels face each other. I had been very happy with Baobab but the Rio Palace was even better, some of the advantages include:/ Free Wifi that... More
