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.

I went on this holiday thinking I was booked in the RIU Olivas sister hotel "Tres Islas" but due to a booking error - all my fault - I ended up in the RIU Oliva and it was one of the luckiest breaks I ever had. This is a great hotel. The hotel operates on an "all inclusive basis" and it certainly delivers on its promise. You could stay here a week and not spend a penny. Even the safe in your room is free, something other hotels have happily charged me up to 17 euros for. Crikey I am sure you could buy a safe for that.
The hotel is situated directly on a gorgeous beach, which in the sunshine of the first week in February - seven days of sunshine - was a great place to spend your time. Returning from the beach in the afternoon we enjoyed our complimentary coffee and cakes served every day inn the poolside bar. If you have children there was endless juice, slush puppies and ice scream. The mid-day meals are full meals and just like the evening meals, with plenty of choice for all. The food is mass catering though and despite the choices no individual dish blew my socks off. I would give the catering 4/5.Breakfast did annoy me a little too, I am English and breakfast without bacon is unthinkable, but some days no bacon was served and the days when it was it was under cooked. I cannot understand why they cannot serve two distinct lots of bacon, one lot well cooked and the other the Spanish way which means it is hardly on the grill for 10 seconds. Anyway I am probably moaning too much. Coffee, also very important to me was served promptly at breakfast and was acceptable without being great. The staff are very friendly and helpful and well trained. My room was fine - they have apartment style living in a small chalet village as well as a large standard hotel . You could end up in either. The rooms probably could do with a little refurbishment, but were fine. English TV was limited to BBC News and Sky News and inexplicably a channel which showed American CSI constantly. There was no other English channels though for golf lovers there was a permanent golf channel with Spanish commentary which showed American golf and the European Tour. Entertainment at night time was a bit weak - avoid the Rocky horror Show - it is terrible, but the Jokerman night was so bad it was good. Great fun.
I was sad to leave this hotel at the end of my holiday and hope to return.More
Great 3 star all inclusive
Stayed on 4th floor in main hotel. Rooms a little dated but had everything I needed and was cleaned to a high standard every day and smelled fresh.
Has air con and overhead fan.
Food is really good, lots of choice. Buffet style.. Dining room is massive and can get get a bit hot. Top tip is to eat breakfast in the courtyard. Coffee is great. Tables cleared and prepared very efficiently.
Staff, without exception, are friendly, helpful and efficient - that really stands out. Reception staff great.
Guests are approx 70 % German, some British, Italian, Scandinavian, French.
The Hotel is right on the beach, which is just sensational, talcum sand, unusual for Canaries. Reminded me of the Caribbean.
Costs â¬20 for 7 days wifi which works around reception and pool area. Or u can pay daily.
Entertainment is the only thing that really let's the hotel down. Small bar with organist/backing tracks and singer. Larger area has theatre style seating for hundreds and entertainment on stage. I enjoyed Karaoke and opera night, the rest was not great. I didn't go into Corrallejo at night but there is plenty of live music , bars n restaurants there. â¬7-8 euro each way.
Some of the cocktails are ok and g and T fine. Wine drinkable.
I think this hotel is tremendous value if u get it for the right price. I got it for Â£451 for a week and that was single person which is obviously more expensive.
So definitely recommend it . Go! But maybe go into town for some of your after dinner entertainment..
Nice hotel staff brilliant a bit dated but spotlessly clean food good but a it repetitive nice area and agoodbus service just outside plenty to do animation team fun and entertainment on every night good holidayMore
Great value, Great time. Great place.
This is the first time we had holidayed in December and at this hotel. What a good move. To think we were sat on a lovely beach, 27C, plenty to eat and drink. Bliss. Ok now for details. Our room was on the 4th Floor, and opposite side to the pool, so although we had a lovely view of the beach, did not get the sun. Reception did their best to move us but as it would have been later on in the week, we made do. Room was a good size, very comfortable, cleaned every day. The restaurants served a good variety of food, freshly cooked and well presented. All the staff were very attentive and cheerful. We couldn't fault this hotel, so we are going back in Feb 2016.More
Best Holiday so far
I could not fault this holiday at all, reception team,waiters, cleaner oh!! And not forget the fabulous entertainment team were all excellent and very friendly.
My husband had his birthday over there but we never told anybody so when we got back to the apartment on the table was a card and a bottle of bubble from the reception team who must have taken a note while they had passport for ten minutes when we arrived.
The best thing was it was right on the beach.
There was plenty of activity through the day if you wanted, and the shows were extremely excellent.
Looking at moment when we can go back thereMore
