Maspalomas Beach comes as part of the deal here, as does a trio of restaurants.
The hotel is set in supersized gardens and is just steps away from Maspalomas Beach, famous for its Lawrence of Arabia-style sand dunes. And Playa del Inglés is a 10-minute taxi ride from here.
A main pool fringed with palm trees is the focal point here, and it’s teamed up with a garden-side whirlpool bath. The hotel also has a trio of restaurants – 1 offers a very civilised late breakfast and does great steaks later.

Champagne Fountain in the foyer! Actually it is Cava in seemingly unlimited quantities and the lobby fountain is water.
When reviewing any establishment one must pay due regard to it's marketing profile, comfort and value for money. For those reasons, if I were to award anything less than a rating of 5 that would be unfair and misleading. This is not a five star hotel in the international business sense. It is a holiday hotel on Gran Canaria. My room (225) was spacious, clean comfortable and remarkably quiet. Exactly what I needed. The whole place is spotlessly clean and despite one reviewer commenting on "slow decay" it is in as good a condition as the cruise liner "Queen Mary 2" that I sailed on last year. One can find cause for complaint if one really chooses to. The food is plentiful and of good quality. I never felt hungry but had to be wary of being seduced into over eating from the extensive buffet. Of special note are the appetisers; take one of each, you will not be disappointed - a delicate trio of Mis en Bouche. The A La Carte restaurant is included in the all inclusive price and requires booking a table. Drinks servings are generous - especially the brandy measures! The range of included drinks is impressive - I did not pay a supplement for anything including proprietary brands and cocktails. My room fridge was stocked with bottled water that was freely replenished on request. Best kept secret? That has to be the palm gardens. There are two - one between reception and the gate to the beach and the other past the pool. Both offer seclusion, and dappled or open sun baking opportunities. There were always loungers available for comfort. I was here for business so my experiences may not be that same as those seeking a sun baked holiday. My opinion is just that - my opinion and I stand by it. The Riu Palace Oasis is a very good hotel. Down side? Yes, every establishment has potential for improvement, that is how hotels get better all the time. The only free WiFi is in the lobby area. As I was on business, I needed internet access in the privacy of my room and paid roaming data charges to achieve this. My bed was two single beds placed side by side. Although I sleep alone, I often sleep diagonally across my bed. I prefer a genuine double width mattress. This effect could have been replicated by the use of a deep memory foam mattress cover. End of gripes, neither of which would detract from my rating of this hotel. Final comments must go to the staff. They are professional, friendly, helpful and speak English, German, French and Spanish with a fluency and diction that defies belief. Bravo y muchos graciasMore
still worth a visit
since we are regular visitors to this hotel since 29 years we recognize the slow decay happening all over the premises. BUT there is still a wonderful park a beautiful grand pool very friendly service and rather generous food and drink supply --- and to emphasize this fact ALL INCLUSIVEMore

Second visit - as good as the first!
We enjoyed our last visit to this hotel last year and decided to stay here again, which is unusual as We like trying new places. We weren't disappointed. The room, service, facilities and food were excellent. A big plus for us is the close proximity to the fabulous Maspalomas beach, your own garden gate straight out onto the beach. You could also take the hotel towels onto the beach and don't need to take your own. The restaurant has something for everyone and the staff are all very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. There were plenty of sun loungers and parasols throughout the day next to the pool and plenty of others around the extensive gardens.We asked for a room with a garden view near the beach, and we had a lovely view over the well kept gardens and a glimpse of the sea through the trees. Would I go back again? Yes definitely!More

Can't wait to return
Excellent hotel, with staff who just couldn't do enough for you. We up-graded to a sea view room which gave us the afternoon sun and a lovely view of the lighthouse. Walk though the gardens to the beach and dunes or along the promenade to Meloneras.More

Walk through the gate into the tranquil gardens of this hotel and you feel totally relaxed. Palm trees, flowers, birds, a jacuzzi, fountain and water feature all add to the mood. Inside the decor is pleasing with sculptures and pictures. We prefer the garden rooms some of which have huge balconys 259 was our favourite. All inclusive with excellent choices at the buffet including lobster and caviar . Friendly helpful staff made for an excellent holiday.More
