The Hotel Riu Chiclana doesn't scrimp on facilities. This lively hotel teams access to the beach with great pool and dining scenes, and a packed entertainment schedule.
The Hotel Riu Chiclana is a grand-looking whitewashed property, spread out among manicured lawns and palm-lined walkways. It’s got peaceful surroundings, but is only a 10-minute walk from the beach. There's plenty in the way of activities here, too.
This hotel does family-friendly with a deluxe twist – the pool area has a faux lighthouse and a children's splash park, the buffet restaurant is all dark wood furniture and linen, and you can upgrade to a roomy family suite.

Impressed with what this hotel offers, all the staff are very helpful and friendly. This is a great place to base yourself, if you wish to explore southern Spain, or if you want to spend your days on a outstanding beach or by the pool. The only down side for us was we posted two postcards to friends in the UK in the box at reception they have still not arrived and its now been 9 weeks.More
Amazing hotel. Caters for everyone
As a travel agent, I was keen to try this hotel myself as all the information I had sounded fantastic. We travelled as a group of 3 families with 5 children under 9. Jerez airport very easy to get through and transfer took around 50 minutes. First impressions of the hotel were very good and I have to say throughout my weeks stay during October half term, my impressions never changed, beautifully well kept grounds, spotlessly clean throughout. Pools were fantastic and you can change your provided pool towels as many times as you want. Food was varied and of a very high standard. They catered for everyone. Was speaking to another guest who was a coeliac and they couldn't do enough to cater for her dietary requirements. Entertainment was fairly low key and finished around 10.30. There are help yourself drink stations (hot and cold drinks) which did attract wasps. However if you want a really good coffee with cream on top, order this from the bar instead. I liked the fact that there were a lot of Spanish here. Made it feel more authentic and made me feel I was actually in Spain rather than butlins abroad. No typical Brits abroad here. Perfect for a low key family holiday. Would definitely return again without hesitation.More

Very impressed with the hotel and it's facilities. All inclusive was well worth the money and ideal for the kids to "help themselves". Only down side as visited in the October half term the hotel was nearing the time for shutting down so not all of the bars and restaurants were open as they had started to let staff go! Luckily enough the hotel wasn't full to capacity so didn't notice so much, only when you wanted to get a drink which wasn't as close to the pool as before. Entertainment was pretty good and the team was very welcoming. Rooms really nice but as classed as their winter (but hot to us Brits) the air conditioning had been switched off and only had the over head fan which as it was quite hot didn't cool you down as much as hoped. Pricey perhaps for just one week but it was official half term so if had booked 2 weeks would have got a better deal going before the half term break. Friendly staff. Food option and choices great for 1 week but may have been fed up by week 2 but still very enjoyable. Water in the pools very cold but soon got used to it. Beautiful beach only a short walk away and down some steps but lovely and sandy and in October not overly busy. Great location and plenty to do offsite if wanted excursions. Safe environment for the kids. Overall a very good break and would recommend to others :)More

An excellent "chill out" resort for all.
This is the first Riu hotel I have ever stayed at but, given this example, I will be pleased to visit more in th future. The resort was immaculate in every aspect, cleanliness, staff and the food offer. If you want a lively resort then this isn't for you but, as wel did, if you are looking for a great venue to relax and unwind it hits the spot :) . The accommodation is well proportioned and of a good standard. My only comment would be aircon would be useful during the low season when temperatures hit 30 deg C :) I believe that our holiday represented fantastic value for money and I would recommend to anybody.More

Have just returned from 2 weeks at rui Chiclana with my husband and 15 year old. Chose this hotel due to price (1500 for 2 weeks for the 3 of us) and reviews -we were not disappointed. I knew that not all bars / restaurants would be open as it was low season and it was not a problem just a bit of a shame the piano bar shut for the last few days as I missed the lemon slushes! Pools were great. Resort was spotless all the staff worked extremely hard and were always cheerful. Food great. Entertainment team brilliant. My daughter enjoyed teen club. Enjoyed tennis and rifle shooting. Spa lovely. We had 2 birthdays whilst there and we had a bottle of fizz delivered to the room then at dinner we had a reserved table another bottle of fizz and a lovely cake. Very busy with Spanish at the weekends but it was not a problem they certainly livened things up in a good way. 2nd week was quieter than the 1st. Beach great. We were In room 3377 nice sea view. Only negatives for us were beds and pillows too hard and sofa bed for my daughter very very uncomfortable. Tea/coffee in the room and an iron would have been a nice touch. Overall a very chilled relaxing holiday would return. More
