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.
These 1 bedroom family rooms are a great base for exploring the local area, and they come with either a balcony or terrace, giving you that extra space outside. You'll get a twin bedroom, a sofa bed in your own lounge area, a TV, ceiling fan, and air-conditioning.

GREAT HOTEL AND STAFF
This is my 7th visit to this hotel. The hotel provides good accommodation, excellent food and great staff. I have never seen housekeeping staff work so hard - always cleaning - and be so happy and friendly. All the staff from the General Manager, Mohamad to the reception, to the restaurant, everyone is always happy and helpful.
The Thomson Rep at the hotel, Sandra, is certainly the best Rep I have ever met in all my extensive travel around the world. Thanks Sandra.
The only thing that some people might not like is the huge influx of Spanish visitors who come at the weekends but, other than that, it is a great family hotel which is value for money.More
Excellent all inclusive
Stayed for a week with family excellent service cleanliness and facilities. Food various to suit all tastes. Stayed at the rui in Portugal year before last but wasn't impressed at all but this was a far superior hotel all round. Beach was lovely .not much around outside of hotel but a short bus ride to local shops or short walk to supermarket.ideal for a family holiday children really catered for well.More

A True Taste of Spain
Third visit but took 4 adults and 2 infants this year instead of just the usual 2 people. A tried and tested hotel which is family friendly and safe. There is a meet and greet session with the staff management team making them accountable and easy to approach. Food and service are very good and you can help yourself to most beers, soft drinks and wine at 2 bars and all the buffets. Rooms are comfortable and clean although you can only get wifi in the public areas. Good bus and train services if you want to explore though you may need a car to visit some of the coastal towns and villages. No cash point in the hotel which is disappointing but you shouldn't need much spending money unless you leave the resort. Lots of activities, super beach down some steep steps. Almost impossible to get British football on the hotel TV's but there are a couple of local bars which will cater for sports fans. A world away from the other Costas with very little English spoken Lots of good golf courses. Thomson and Ryan Air fly to Jerez during the season and you can also fly to Seville and Gibraltar to get there Brilliant weather all week. Will probably go back again next year.More
Good hotel, shame about the entertainment.
We paid Â£500.00 each for 2 weeks all inclusive in the 2nd week of May. For the price is was very good value for the money. We requested an upper floor with a sea view, and was not disappointed. It was a large room with a sofa and a good size balcony overlooking the sea.
The food at times was repetitive, but one could always find something different to try. The drinks were branded.
The only low point was the poor night time entertainment from the animation team, which consisted of miming and at times just running around the stage.
The worst entertainment was the Crazy Show, which consisted of the following;
1. 4 mentally disordered "patients" in straitjackets being chased by a female police officer with a batten;
2. A male animation member pretending that he had a learning disability and wearing a large set of false teeth;
3. Cheech & Chong (who are actually white Mexican/American) being portrayed as Rastafarians, with dredds smoking an extra large spliff;
4. Stevie Wonder needing to be orientated to face the audience.
At least our European colleagues appreciated the show. Be warned!More
