ClubHotel Riu Chiclana  

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.

Fantastic trip!!

I'm not normally one to write reviews, however my boyfriend and I have just returned from a week at the Chiclana and loved every minute of it. The rooms were cleaned daily and very comfortable. The whole resort was clean come to that. The food was great with plenty of choice and all fresh so can't complain. I would say the majority of holiday makers were Spanish and German however we really enjoyed that fact as was nice not to be surrounded by brits. The staff were absolutely amazing, every single one of them no matter what job they were doing were friendly, upbeat and couldn't do enough to help. A big shout out to the animation team who worked morning til night from kids clubs to aqua aerobics and the evening entertainment, they were all amazing and you couldn't help but smile to watch them. This is your typical package holiday, with daytime activities, occasional loud music, lots of kids running around. But we went as a couple and still managed to enjoy a relaxing break and for the price we were more than happy. This would be a great holiday for families as there is plenty for the kids to do and the staff work really hard to keep them entertained as well. They deserve a 10/10 we had a ball. Thank you :)More

Caroline B,

Very nice place for family holidays

I have great opinion on that hotel. The personel was very customer-oriented (kind, smiling and very helpful). When we arrived to the hotel at 1 A.M. we could have a meal prepared especially for us! Very well appreciated! The hotel is old-fashioned, but very clean. The food was absolutely great (fresh and tasty; best pizza ever!!!). Very good quality soft and alcoholic drinks. The only think that bothered us was the number of guests. This is huge hotel! Wifi is accessable and high quality at common parts such as lobby, main and andalusian restaurant, evening bar and swimming pools what is great. The beach was also very nice.More

Nice holiday with kids

Spent 10 nights in Riu Chiclana and found it as a quite a nice hotel for a summer holiday. The major factors we considered look like this: Check in/out: Fast, effective, no long queues, luggages are transported directly to the room@check in, while own transportation @check-out due to the early leaving. Food: Selection is okay, as well as the early-breakfast option. The "special" restaurants are a nice hint to try but you will return to the biggest main restaurant, afterwards guarantee. Drinks: AI is valid with a large scale of drinks, however the quality of the brands are far away from the european selection. E.g. 2 types of whiskies, 1 Tequila. But okay, to avoid having too many guests overfilled it's a good strategy. Rooms: We had Family room, the only things i still could not understand is the outlook and design of the room. Entry is from the balcony, and that space is supposed to be the kids' room, the adult room is found inside. And that is strange, as the adults can not get out without passing the kids' space... Pools: Yes, as previous reviers stated does get busy from Friday-Sunday, and mission impossible to find sunbeds no matter of the regulation. 2 main pools plus the kids' pirate one, quite impressive so far, but be prepared for the crowd. Sea: Beach is a short walk down, plenty of spaces and a windy beautifel beach. Animation Team: Mini Club and Mini Disco is awesome, they do their best to entertain the small ones. Adult session with the evening shows are just so-so, some improvements have to be done... Trips from the hotel: Gibraltar is a must to see, other trips are based on your willingness. Others: There is a small shop inside with the basic needs, and the local bus goes to the city centre in evry hour. The stuff in general is very cute and helpful. Overall: More pros than cons, i personally loved the huge screens next to the bar and watching the euro16 games.More

Lovely hotel

Stayed at the riu chiclana for a weeks stay. Really nice hotel, quite a large complex. On arrival we left our cases outside and then myself my husband and toddler daughter were taken straight to an office at reception and booked in not having to wait at all which was good and they were most welcoming, explaining about where our room was and where to eat and where to get free wifi etc. Not really much atmosphere around the pool due to fairly relaxed music choice but they do have things to do like pool games, aqua aerobics, rifle shooting. Was fairly busy at the restaurants but could easily book the speciality restaurants still. All buffet foods which did get a bit repetitive although all very nice. We'd read about not having to reserve sun beds but we found we had to after the day we got there literally not being able to find one! Beach was very nice, just down some steps which a little awkward with a pushchair which we decided to do. We unfortunately had a smell of sewage on and off in our family room which we mentioned to hotel staff but it had disappeared at that time so didn't ask them to do anything only for it to come back but if we'd have gone to reception I'm sure they'd have been straight on it. No hot water in the mornings, bit strange but it was hot by 10ish. There were a lot of families at this hotel and if we went as a couple I think I'd probably be a bit disappointed as there isn't any adult only areas to get away from kids. Worth pointing out all hotel staff were just lovely and really wanted to make sure you were having a great time. All in all a brilliant week and glad we chose this hotel. More
