A typical RIU Classic hotel which is due to be fully refurbished this Winter and having seen the photos it looks like it will be stunning when completed! So disregarding the soon to be changed fabric, the food was excellent and up to the best of RIU standards. The drinks were top brands and "hotel" reasonable price! The entertainment was...

First time at this Riu and very impressed with the location and the friendly staff. The food was always freshly cooked and there was a good selection. It did become a bit 'sameish' during the second week but there are plenty of local restaurants to visit to mix it up a bit. The hotel is a little dated but I...

Pleasant stay last week, got off to a poor start as our room wasn't ready on arrival and the rather surly female receptionist waved a complimentary drinks ticket at us and told us to wait in the bar - fair enough these things happen but that ticket had a limit to it, a coffee or small beer, didn't go a...
