Sea views don’t come much better than at this clifftop hotel – and the pool is a great place to enjoy them.
Sea views come as standard at this clifftop hotel, and there’s a courtesy bus to the beach if you don’t fancy the 20-minute walk. There are some shops, bars and restaurants a little nearer as well.
The hotel has two main pools. On top of the buffet restaurant, there’s a poolside place with two themed options on offer – both venues have great sunset views. And it's getting a fresh lick of paint for August 2017, so everything will look box fresh.

Very good personel, top entertainment, good food.
We stayed at Vistamar a few weeks ago and have to say it was an allround perfect experience. All the personel were extremely nice, very flexible and friendly, during our entire stay. They all seemed to speak a very good English. The entertainment at night was nothing short of spectacular, very professional! What a fantastic team of animators! The food was great and exactly varied enough so you wouldn't get bored by it. I have experienced something at hotel Side Prenses in Turkey that surpassed it, but the food at Vistamar was great too, no complaints. Although we had a fantastic stay and definitely would recommend this hotel to others, there are a few details that you should know about. 1) The rooms were out-dated and there were a few problems in the bathroom, but we also understood that they were exactly closing down the hotel for 3 months, after we left, to renovate all the rooms. I think it only really matters when you enter the room and see it for the first time. The rooms were functional and everything was working, so we were fine with them. Anyway, we only used them for sleeping. 2) The elevators were acting a bit funny and I was very suspicious of them. Once I got stuck for a minute at one level, until it decided to go to another level that I didn't push a button for. Hopefully that will be fixed with the renovation. Besides that the elevators have a nice information display, with the weather forecast and a few other things. 3) The drinks at the bar near the pool seems have much less alcohol than those in the bar at the entertainment hall. This also makes good sense, but just something to know. We were a little confused about this, as we both normally easily get a bit dizzy from just a glass of wine, but at the pool, nothing touched us. We were later touched very much, because of this difference :D Tips: *Big info touch screen near the reception. *Free bus to the beach every half an hour, except for a break in the middle of the day. *Busses to Puerto de Mogan are cheap, it's a nice place to go shopping and you can go for a really nice trip with submarine there. *If you really want to go shopping, go to Playa Del InglÃ©s (Yumbo is a big shopping center). We loved our stay very much! Thanks to all of the staff of Vistamar that made our vacation so great! :-)More
Bit dissapointed in my first stay at a Riu Hotel.
The ClubHotel Riu Vistamar is located on a cliff top overlooking Amadores beach, all rooms overlooking the sea with lovely views. The downside of this is unless you catch the courtesy bus down to Amadores, its a hell of a trek down windy roads and a lot worse getting back up so if you walk down, at least get the bus back unless your trying to exercise that breakfast off. To get to Puerto Rico, you can get the bus down to the beach and walk along scenic pedestrian route along the sea front (nice views 20min walk) or take a back way up to the Puerto Azul hotel and down lots and lots of Steps. There is a shopping centre about a 10min walk from the hotel with a few bars and restaurants so your not completely isolated. Rooms were pretty spacious, clean but a little dated but perfectly acceptable. Pool areas were nice but very busy at times. I did like the fact that at the pool bar and the entertainment bar, you could serve yourself with beer or wine rather than queue at the bar. The restaurant had a good choice of food but not the tastiest, The night time entertainment really let this place down, there just didn't seem any atmosphere and no attempt by the hotel to create one despite a really good choice of all inclusive spirits. Will probably go to Puerto Rico again but not at this hotel.More
This was our 2nd time here and it was more enjoyable than the first, despite the fact they were closing at end of April for 3 months for a full refurb. Food was excellent every night. Again though the large numbers of people who do not use the hand gel before entering the restaurant is disgusting. The hotel could perhaps have staff reminding people? I would strongly suggest the hotel also consider have small bottles of water for people to drink during the day at the pool. There are water coolers however these as relatively small and the water often not chilled due its overuse. The result is you end uo gong to coke or Fanta because it is chilled. Entertainment staff were excellent and the Michael Jackson show is one to watch, very very good. Staff once agin were very good and couldn't do enough for you.More
Loved this hotel
I cannot fault this hotel, lovely location, with regular buses to beach front, food choices amazing, staff couldn't do enough for you, especially Daniel, he went above and beyond helping my father when we needed a Dr. Shops within easy walking distance. Hotel was being refurbed 3 days after we left and I look forward to going back and seeing the hotel once complete.More
Great value for money. Great 9 night stay. What we like the most about this place is despite the feeding frenzy, the staff were always happy, accommodating and friendly. Rooms outdated and the gym really was a rust bucket but the refurbishment programme will surely sort that out. Fab sea views and a great location. I would not hesitate to stay here again, refurbishment or no refurbishment! Keep up the good work guys! More
