The pool scene gets the thumbs up here. The main one comes up pretty big while the other is a curvy number surrounded by glossy palms. Not only that but there's even a whirlpool bath thrown in the scene. Heated in winter at the manager's discretion.

August 2015 summer break
Lovely summer holiday
Rooms are old fashioned as dark furniture, but had everything we needed.
Currents at beach strong and red flag 9/10 days we stayed, we were warned by rep on coach to resort to respect red flags and advice of lifeguards as were dangerous tides, number of people swimming anyway.
Normal problem of towels reserving loungers nearest to pool all day but we did find places to sit when wanted.
Entertainment team worked hard happy to leave you alone if didn't participate but would have been good in such a large place to have some different external music acts in evenings.
We were limited in food choices as vegetarian. Hotel and reps encouraged people to refill water bottles from water dispensers but this is really unhygienic idea.We didn't experience any stomach problems.
Staff all very helpful and keen to please.
Great trips to Oasis Zoo and Lanzarote volcano experience.More

Fantastic Holiday...well worth a visit
Just returned from an amazing week at this hotel. I am honestly shocked by the terrible reviews and had to check twice if it was the same hotel!! Yes the rooms are slightly dated but they are cleaned to such a high standard and who really goes on holiday to stay in the room? All staff were very welcoming and more then happy to help. The manager always seemed to be on hand and checking everything was ok. The rep Abbie was excellent, we requested a new bed as ours was too hard and we had a new one within an hour or two! There was plenty of choice with drinks. You could help yourself to soft drinks from the machine,beer, wine in the restaurants ice cubes and lemon slices.. Which avoided having to queue. The food was of an excellent standard and there was so much choice. All the utensils were regularly changed and food was a good temperature. You must try the Oriental food during your visit, it's the best I've ever had! You had to pay â¬3 for a sunbed on the beach but this seems the norm for each hotel there. The transfers were quick and easy and check in and out was very fast! I don't often go to the same destination twice but I will be returning next summer. More

Very Disappointed with this hotel.We stayed in the annex apartments which were ok really if you are booking 3*, could do with upgrading.Stayed at Riu hotels before and loved them so much that we always have tried to stay with that chain.This hotel has made me re-think my choose in future.The hotels facilities were very inadequate for the size of the place.We were never able to sit or sunbath around any of the two pools (towels would go on them from 12pm so if your not close you've no chance).So had to go to the beach where you cant take food or drinks so you have to buy them there and also pay for the sunbeds and parasols.If you need the loo you have a long walk back to the hotel as there are no facilities on the beach.The beach is beautiful but the sea is very dangerous as me and my friend found out.There are plenty of life guards but my advise is don't go and deeper than your waist.The two main restaurants are very busy but the food was ok.We had to stand up one day to eat our lunch by the pool as there were never any free tables because the sunbeds were all full that people were turning the tables and chairs in to sunbeds.The evening entertainment room is horrendous, you sit in rows of four with hardly any tables to put a drink and the music is too loud but the animation is to quite to hear what's going on.You pay for wifi, 20 euros for a week and you still cant use it.Its rubbish nothing connects.No water is supplied which is very unusual for Riu.If you're not good with walking and stairs stay away.This could be such a beautiful place if there was another couple of pools and a better entertainment area.To busy for me! I need a holiday!!.The staff are hard working and try but its just to packed.More
