Maspalomas Beach comes as part of the deal here, as does a trio of restaurants.
The hotel is set in supersized gardens peppered with lakes, 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.

Hotel Riu Palace Oasis Maspalomas Canaries
A genuine 4* hotel , with good sized , well appointed rooms , where everything works , and a very friendly and helpful staff , great facilities , beautiful grounds and , best of all , right on the beach . The Riu Group really do know what they're doing . We arrived late evening and fortunately the helpful reception staff seemed to know and had everything ready for us. So check-in was very straight forward and took no time at all. A porter took our cases to the room and showed us around . All really very helpful and gratefully received when you've travelled all day ! The room was pleasantly furnished , the beds were really comfortable , and the bathroom well designed with marble everywhere . The bath and shower were very good . Mini bar and safe were provided as standard . And there was loads of hanging space and hangers in the built-in wardrobes . Minor fault but there was no wifi in the rooms , only in reception . In 2014 this is really very naughty ! The room cleaners were really excellent , even leaving our gymjams folded differently almost every night. The grounds were beautiful and vast . Also excellently tended .There were loads of sun loungers all over the place , but I feel you'd need to be up before sunrise to beat the Germans who I swear booked them with towels at midnight !! But it didn't really matter as there were plenty of loungers and always the beach just next door The internal common areas were also very good , very comfortable , but not exceptional . Having said that there was never a problem finding somewhere to sit . Most nights we chose the pool side bar which was excellent with briliant attentive service . The food was really good quality , buffet style , so you had to forage for yourself , but very well presented with a vast array of hot and cold foods to chose from . A lot of the food was similar but nevertheless each night there was always something ( plenty ) different to have . And there was also an a la carte restaurant which was excellent , with superb service and an intimate atmosphere . You could eat there every night if you wanted . Breakfast was a great meal especialy if you don't eat lunch !! So all in all a very good , well organised and friendly hotel , easly justifying it's 4* status . Well worth the visit especially if you like our teutonic friends . Give it a go ! Howard JonesMore

Much much better than some would have you believe.
Having read quite a few reviews in October I had reservations about our stay in this hotel. We however found it excellent. The staff were very attentive and on our arrival we were offered Bucks Fizz in the lounge while we waited for our room to be ready. It was ready quickly and we had a lovely South facing balcony and could see the sea. The food was excellent and we did have a meal in the Krystal restaurant which was delicious ..and again we were made to feel special. Yes, a lot of the other guests were German but they were friendly ....and yes, it does get busy round the pool, but where doesn't it? Here you had the option of lying in the lovely and extensive garden. The location was ideal - close to the bus station for exploring the island and just opposite the Moonlight Cinema which is an experience not to be missed. We will go again! More
Truly excellent hotel with extensive grounds and beach front.
From the moment you enter reception this has the impression of a four star hotel. Comfy chairs and sofas to relax in in this area - this is the free wi-fi area so popular. Good well appointed rooms with two chairs for guests - the Spanish have worked out a double room is for two people ! Super balcony with reclining chair and cushion. Powerful hot shower and a pair of sinks in the bathroom.Large pool with lots of sun beds and cushions round the pool or on a slightly raised terrace.There are grassed grounds with lots of palm trees behind the pool - there is a bar here as well - and similar grounds leading to the beach - these grounds with a jacuzzi. Plenty of beds here either in shade or sun and all can have cushions on them.The beach is a few feet across the promenade. A wide sandy beach which stretches away for miles.Great rolling waves with lots of surfers at the weekend. Do not confuse this RIU with two others nearby which have only rocks over the promenade from them. The food is excellent here - vast choices for breakfast and dinner. Meat and fish cooked in front of you. Also hot fruit cooked on the spot for desert with a generous helping of spirit if required. Drinks are served by waiters but this is not to limit consumption as the waiters are most attentive and keen to give you refills. There are also self service areas for soft drinks beer and wine. Nothing is too much trouble here -very helpful staff throughout. First question as we arrived at reception "Would you like to go for lunch before you check in as it closes shortly" Wow. Recommended ? Well we are definitely going back here. You cannot guarantee another week of superb weather but you can certainly count on the quality of this hotel.More

Once again never failed us
Well having missed one year because the hotel was due to be completely pulled down we were relay sad after 11 years. The hotel is old and dated but has real character wood panels old style ceramic tiles marble, rather than masses or over the top paint work like a lot of modern hotels. We thought as the hotel has gone all inclusive it would not be the same. To long term guests don't worry its the same but all inclusive and great value. Clean spotless. On the beach and loads of room in the gardens with lots of sun beds and space. No hanging around for drinks, food good yes the age average seems to be 65 that's great no problems with noisy guests, a real joy. A previous guest commented that there are a lot of German guest that's true but they keep themselves to themselves and are polite. I would say 90%. Yes they do seem to get a little special service, but as Brits we had perfectly good service, if you want better tip at the start of your holiday not the end a few Euros works wonders. But as I said not really necessary. there are very few hotels we go back to but oasis is a must, based on cost and location its hard to betterMore
We have just come back from a wonderful relaxing 9 day holiday at this hotel. I am writing this review as we were a little apprehensive after reading previous reviews on trip adviser. This is a lovely hotel, not at all tired as has been suggested. The only thing we think that people were talking about is the outside of the hotel which perhaps is a bit dated although I cannot see what they could do to alter that. The facilities were excellent and the staff could not have been any more welcoming , pleasant and immediately attentive. There are a lot of Germans at the hotel all very pleasant and were never treated as second class citizens. The food is excellent with a very good selection, we were spoilt for choice. We ate in the Kristal restaurant on our 3rd night, and whilst a lovely experience there was only the choice of 4 starter, 4 main courses and 3 desserts all very well presented but the menu did not change so a bit restrictive. It was our Silver wedding Anniversary whilst we were away and we decided to eat in the main restaurant that night as there was so much variety. The pool area was not the largest but had plenty of sun loungers and parasols however there was a lovely garden for people who preferred to lay in the sun in a more relaxed environment. Maspalomas beach is immediately outside the hotel and can be accessed by the garden gate, and leads straight onto the amazing sand dunes..If you walk the other way there is a promenade along the sea front with plenty of shops. In the evening there was entertainment which if not for us but we enjoyed sitting outside at the pool bar. The average age of the clientele is probably 60 ish so if you are looking for lots of night life probably not for you. Rooms and whole hotel was spotlessly clean. The temperature was 28-30 degrees with a minimum at night of about 24 . We loved our stay and would not hesitate to recommend it. Will defiantly return.More
