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.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner with late continental breakfast option 10.30-12.00.
Select imported and local alcoholic and soft drinks available 24 hours.
24-hour snacks. Coffee, cakes and sandwiches 15.30-18.00.
Average monthly temperature and rainfall for the Maspalomas location.

Unless RIU spend some money on this hotel it will just fade away - a tragedy
This was my fifth trip to this hotel over a 7 year period. The Gardens are just as fantastic, the gateway to the beach still as brilliant.
The staff are still just great and the jacuzzi after a beach visit never gets boring.
But there is no disguising the fact that the hotel building is now a massive eyesore. Bare cheap wooden panels on one half after they removed the stone then left it and the other half painted white and terracotta.
It looks awful, like a 1860's butlins camp. RIU were supposed to refurb it and stopped, preferring to spend 10's of millions on the other two RIU hotels nearby. They are huge facelss places, but they were refurbed as their size probably makesmore cash.
The Oasis was downgraded from a 5 star to a 4 star, externally made of mess of, and turned into an allinclusive as a way of offfsetting all of this.
Well RIU, it didnt off set it, it truly messed it up.. Get it sorted RIU, its a waste of such a perfect spot.More

Disappointed in RIU
After recommendations about Riu we thought we would try this hotel.
First of all the hotel is very clean but a little dated, We found the staff ok, polite to us anyway.
The food was very disapointing, the breakfast was ok probably the best meal of the day.
The lunch was awful the same thing every day, Frankfurters, cheap burgurs, pizzas.
The dinners fantastic if you liked very over cooked veg that tasted watery, some sort of pork every day, and not much else to chose from. There was alway plenty of salads you could make up, if you like that sort of thing.
The drinks , cocktails were the cheap bottles varity tastless sangira the shorts were ok.
Now the rooms very clean but dated, the beds were very uncomfortable the pillows were cheap and nasty. The air con was ok. The one big thing for this hotel was its location, right on the fantastic beach. We will return to this resort but at another hotel.
Our rep,rushed through the welcome meeting as if she didnt want to be there.More

just returned from a 2 week holiday at this hotel. It was our first visit but we felt at home immediatly we arrived. The reception were very friendly and efficient and because we arrived quite late they sent us to the restaurent for dinner and then checked us in later. the restaurent is great .very comfortable and the choice of food is amazing. The restaurent staff are brilliant, very friendly and very efficient and this applies to everyone at the hotel including the maids and gardeners.
the hotel grounds are amazing and lead straight onto the glorious beach. The night time entertainment in the garden was really good as was the music in the piano bar
I think this is one of the best hotels that we have stayed in and it is a credit to the manager and his senior staff. It is that good that we have booked for May and September next yearMore

I was so pleased to read the review from Tony D. We too have just returned from two weeks at this hotel and reading all the "rave reviews" was wondering it we had come to the right hotel! First of all, I must say that the cleanliness is second to none. The rooms need a lot of updating, especially having the shower over the bath, which was unbelievable to have to use this for a 4 star hotel. We were extremely lucky as we had a very nice ground floor room with a large terrace (but still no separate shower), I would not have liked to have been given one of the other rooms that were
available. Also there was no mention in the brochure as to how far the beach was from the hotel (10 minutes walk) through the grounds and how large the beach is when finally reaching it, another 10 minutes walk to the shore.
Would not go here again. Bring back Tunisia!!!!!More
