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.
Classic in style, these twin rooms come with a balcony offering partial views of the Atlantic Ocean. They include satellite TV and a mini-fridge. These rooms are located in the main building and air-conditioning is at the managers discretion.
Located in the annexe, these comfy family rooms sleep up to four - you'll have a twin bedroom, plus a lounge with 2 extra beds. For outside space, you'll have a balcony or terrace, while inside, there's essentials like satellite TV and a mini-fridge. Air-conditioning is at the managers discretion.

The hotel is in a great location right on the beach but stepping into the hotel is like stepping back 20 years or so. The hotel is clean but could do with a refurb, the staff are efficient and polite and always on hand.
The bedrooms are clean and in the main hotel have a sea view.
The pool is large and great for families but the best thing about this hotel is it's location right on the beach.
The food in the restaurant in varied and of a good quality although it would be nice to have something grilled and not fried. Lots of fresh salads which are varied and plentiful. the all inclusive packages include drinks which are very generous and the bar service is fast and efficient. The Chinese themed restaurant looks like any other part of the hotel (bland) and the food is just a variation on the main restaurants but a welcome change. The Canarian restaurant was nothing special with no fresh fish etc that we were hoping for. The main restaurants of which there are two, lack ambience and at time feel like a workplace canteen. The bars lack any character and have the potential to feel municipal.
Overall its a very good not great hotel but that opinion is mainly down to the decor, ambience and entertainment (which in itself is poor).
The distance from town could be an issue but taxi's are readily available but perhaps a courtesy bus would be a welcome addition.
The overall impression is that it's a hotel in need of some TLC in a fabulous location.More
We have just came back from a weeks holiday. The hotel is very spacious and set in beautiful surroundings on the beach...The hotel is very clean and the staff are super friendly. There was plenty of choice of food,but by the end of the week it was a bit 'samey' and most things were fried...that's what you expect though and then you go on a massive diet when you get back. With 3 different types of restaurants to choose from, i recommend the Asian one,food was lovely including puddings...We visited it twice! Drinks on tap were a good idea...always helping myself to soft drink...The cocktails were amazing too!! Yes you did have to get up early to save a sun bed, loads of people would put towels down and wouldn't use their bed until the afternoon. We had plenty of space to enjoy the pools,I could imagine in peak season the main pool being busy,but that's like every hotel you go too. On some of the days the sea was a 'yellow flag' and some was a 'red flag' when it was a red flag the lifeguards on the beach were excellent in controlling the people and letting them swim in one area of the sea...very controlled.
The staff and holiday reps were friendly and the room although was dated was clean. The room has two bed side lights and at times it appeared dark,but it's all about saving the environment and being economic friendly now...i suppose you just have to put up with it
I agree with a previous comments about the bar glass collectors,they could wait until the shows have finished before collecting the glasses,because sometimes they would abstract your view
I like the little extras the hotel has like the cat hotel,which had hotel cats which you could go and see, the jacuzzi,the gym, ping pong...camels on the beach
Overall excellent hotel and would definitely visit again!

A great value for money destination
Date of visits 15-22 June 2016. Although we were staying at the Riu Palace Tres Islas next door, because we are Riu diamond loyalty card guests, the hotel management kindly invited us to eat lunch and enjoy all-inclusive drinks at this hotel in the evening.
Therefore, this review is based on these experiences and not the actual accommodation.
We ate our lunch here for most days of our stay in the restaurant of the main hotel building. The waiting staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful and the lunches were very good, offering a varied salad selection, as well as hot and cold dishes and desserts.
The entertainment in the evening consists of the animation team who regularly perform in the main hall or if you visit the Betancuria bar, you can listen or dance to a trio for a number of nights per week.
In all of the bars, I cannot praise the waiting staff enough. They are the friendliest and most motivated team of people I have ever come across in any hotel where I've stayed - and I'm very well travelled!
This is more budget based than many other Riu hotels, however, for what you would pay and the services and standards they offer, I believe it would be an excellent place to stay.
If Fabricio and any staff members are reading this review, I'd like to say once again a big thank you for the hospitality extended to us during our visit. We will continue to enjoy many holidays in Riu hotels, and if we visit Fuerteventura again, we'll be sure to be in touch.More
