Hotel Riu Nautilus  


Right on the beach promenade, the Riu Nautilus serves up great sea views and sand just footsteps away.

Great holiday but....

Returned on the 17th August after a one week stay with my wife. Was really excited at the prospect of a refurbished 4 star hotel stay, and did have a great holiday. I can`t fault the food or rooms at all However a few things bugged me. In the spa gym 3 out of the 4 exercise machines didn`t work properly. I reported it to the gym guy on day 1, he didn't seem interested. Day 2 the manager at dining, because he asked me my opinion on the hotel. Said he`d look into it, and didnt. Day 3 the reception desk, the lady replied you come on holiday to use the gym?? Day 4 the Thompson rep. I later found out that the machines are years old from before the renovation. But I did book this hotel based on being able to do a little bit of exercise, my wife also wanted to use these machines. Another point when we arrived I was asked if I wanted to use the safe, I said yes and didnt notice until the last day I was charged for this. Come on a 4 star hotel should provide a safe FOC The free wifi in lobby was shocking and you had to pay for wifi throughout the complex, which in my opinion should be included in a 4 star rated hotel The towels need replacing that they put in your bathroom. They're too thin and feel rough on the skin. You're better off using the towels they give you for the sun beds to dry yourself with Location of this hotel was great and if you get up early enough getting a sunbed on the seafront enables you to watch the world go buy in a relaxing environment.More

nice hotel

Have just come back from a 2 week holiday at this hotel. The Hotel reception area was lovely and bright, purple and grey colour scheme, bedrooms were nice and big, the bathroom, brilliant a huge walk in shower, the thing that let the bathroom down were the towels, they were brownish and thin, would have thought maybe purple or grey to go in keeping with the rest of the hotel, bit picky you might think, but when you have paid a lot of money you can expect nice thick towels. The sunbed situation was ridiculous at times, people were getting up at 7ish to put towels down, at one point the hotel was that busy people were on the grass because there were no sunbeds. The food was ok, nothing to get excited about, yes there was a variety of food, something for everybody but it was boring. The Al La Carte restaurant was ok but it served the same food, chicken, pork or beef, the same soup and the same dessert on the 2 occasions we ate there, in 2 weeks. The hotel staff were very polite and helpful and everywhere was clean.More

Fantastic holiday

Stayed here for a week with my daughter 8th August, the hotel is immaculate, very relaxing adults only, no pool noise or animation crew. The staff were wonderful to the extent you felt special. We had the 7pm evening meal time slot which was perfect for us. Don't miss the Al La Carte restaurant that you're entitled to, one night per weeks stay. All the staff were friendly and we were amazed at their multi lingual talent. Massive bonus, quiet closing bedroom doors. Will we return? in a blink.More

Lovely hotel

Stayed here for a week in August and the hotel was lovely and a wide range of choice for breakfast and dinner. There was a slight problem with finding sunbeds that were free but apart from that it was very good.More

Excellent Hotel

6 of us stayed at this hotel for a week from 07/08, hotel was spotless throughout and food gorgeous. I found none of the food to be repetitive and on the one day we ate out we were disappointed with the food and could not wait to eat again in the hotel. The Mgt team also made an effort to speak to us personally to ask if we were enjoying our stay. All staff were friendly, polite and very nice to deal with. Fatima in particular spoke excellent English. The entertainment provided during our stay was a bit disappointing and with the exception of one night when Motown was on the music was not very lively. Even on the Motown night we were advised that they would be on for 2 hours and in actual fact were only on for over an hour!! My only other comment would be our balcony (rm 163). It was on a corner and shaded by large trees which blocked a view and the sun preventing us from spending any time in our balcony. I would recommend this hotel without doubt and will def go back although will ensure I am given a decent balcony My onlMore
