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.
Stayed here for 11 days. First impressions very nice if not a little bit of a Butlins feel about it especially in the annex area. The rooms in the annex area are huge, you get a big living area, separate bedroom and large balcony. Downside the rooms are very datedand the bed was like sleeping on a rock and our bathroom albeit clean was in desperate need of being ripped out and replaced. Swimming pool is big and very nice unfortunately you had to get up before 0730 to get a decent lounger and parasol. Food is plentiful, hot but very repetitive as you would expect with AI. They also offer two themed restaurants but these are also buffet style, food is higher quality but nothing special. Drink is as you would expect local firewater you either like it or you don't. The entertainment at night is pretty poor and the music stops at 11pm. The saving grace is the beautiful beach and the nearby sand dunes. Yes you do have to pay 3 euros for a bed but it beats having to scramble for a bed at the pool. Overall this hotel is nice, the staff are friendly if you get a good deal then it is definatley worth a try !More

Nice resort, love the beach, food good, perfect weather although the family rooms need a bit updating and a bit disappointing that there was not a free water bottle machines as we paid all inclusive. Had a wonderful time.More

No Air Conditioning!
Stayed for a week in September, hotel was clean and staff were extremely helpful. Rooms are extremely basic, clean, but basic. The air conditioning is only available in the room during the day (hotel managers policy apparently!) which if like us you go at a time when it is rather hot, it makes sleeping on the solid beds even more uncomfortable!! However you can hire a fan for 35 euros for the week!! :o never personally heard of anything like it!
The food was good but repetitive and the entertainment was ok at best.
The beach is absolutely stunning though which is a saving grace. If you're looking to just relax and do nothing, and you like the heat, and you can get it for a good price then go for it. More
Hi we were at the oliva from the 3rd to the 9th of sep . The hotel itself is fine so is the annexe area we stayed in all very clean food is also good drinks are good . They give you all you need to have a great time the rest is up to you. The annexe pool was the cleanest pool we have ever seen and the staff in that area includinding the bar an restaurant was superb. The annexe rooms are a little dated but fine. My only gripe is the air con in all the riu hotels we've stayed in air con was on when you wanted it this place has a managers discrection so when it's in the 30s he don't see fit to put it on discusting made it very uncomfatable at night . Shame on you bet you had yours on mr manager . The beach is to die for have a great timeMore

This is the 3rd time we have been here, It is noticeable that the physical facilities are in need of renovation. Paintwork peeling, Drink machines broken, sun beds and parasols broken.
Pathways are breaking up and could be dangerous for those who have disabilities.
However the staff are still as helpful as can be.
One thing in this day and age it would be very helpful if wi-fi facilities be obtainable throughout the resort and not just in the reception area.More
