Hotel Riu Palace Oasis  

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.

Great Staff

We had our annual Christmas break at the Oasis this year. We were a little concerned by some of the reviews but nevertheless we gave it a try. First immpressions mirrored some of the comments on earlier reviews regarding the decor. It does need a little updating. Saying that everything is very clean and tidy. That is partly due to the staff who work very hard to keep it looking spotless. The food was fantastic with enough variety to cater for even the most fussy eater. The pool area was great. The pool guy was brilliant. He managed the beds every day ensuring everyone had beds where they wanted them. Top guy. The rooms as previously mentioned need updating although they are comfortable enough a little TLC wouldn't go amiss. The Waiting, Bar and Reception Staff all deserve medals for there friendliness and service. One of the best we have ever had. Top marks.More

Mixed Review

My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Riu Palace oasis after staying at other riu's and wanting to try Gran Canaria. I agree with previous reviews in the fact it is geared towards the older generations, europeans and does need a refurbishment pretty badly. We were only away for a week and I really felt the first few days I couldn't relax and enjoy my self. One of the main problems were the sunbeds squashed together around the pool, If someone put up their umbrella it would most definitely put you in shade, or you would have someone practically lying on your sunbed with you they were so close. Also noticed some people had 2 sunbeds one for the morning and one for afternoon as the sun moved! We spent the last few days in the gardens where you have much more room. The niggles about the hotel I had were: The hair dryer is absolutely useless The wardrobe beside the double bed would not open as the bedside table was jammed up against it. Men have to wear long trousers in restaurant at night, not matter how hot it is! We weren't informed there were sittings for evening meals and an allocated table. We arrived the first night about 7.30 and were told to come back at 8.30! Water in fridge isn't replenished you have to ask at bar or reception for more. The access gate to the beach front doesn't work on a night. The staff's english in general was very poor for such a tourist resort. Entertainment is awful. There were some lovely things about this holiday however: The location was perfect, right on the beach front, bars restaurants and shops within walking distance. The Food............ I have to say the best thing about this holiday was the food, ample choice at all meals, never had Caviar for lunch before, it was just outstanding. We tried the Krystal restaurant also and again outstanding food, cooked to perfection. Much preferred the Krystal restaurant. It was cool and beautifully decorated. I did end up enjoying this holiday once we found out all the rules and regulations! Don't think I would hurry back though, comparing it with other Riu's I have stayed at it was some what lacking.More

Very Pleasant

Our first stay in a Riu hotel, and if this experience is typical of what we cannot expect throughout the group, I imagine that we will be visiting others in the group. Maybe I should start by saying that our stay was during the two weeks before Christmas. The weather was lovely and warm-around skies. Our impression of Maspalomas itself is not great, rather too built-up and unattractive. The dunes, however, are great for long walks, and the sand is clean...and so it should be as the strong winds and tides help to keep it free of any rubbish. We were told that the Riu Oasis was apparently downgraded recently from 5 star to 4 star, but still the general impression is of high quality. The staff, from the Hotel Manager down have all been very well trained. They are all pleasant and efficient, and provide their guests with excellent service. The public areas are spotlessly clean. Our bedroom was large with a good bathroom and kept clean and tidy by the housekeepers. The main restaurant (breakfast and dinner) was buffet style, as was the lunch restaurant. The quality and variety of the food was excellent in the main restaurant, and a little less so in the lunch restaurant. There is a Table Service restaurant which purports to be up-market but which is a bit pretentious and disappoints. This view is shared by some other guests we met. Entertainment is pleasant...pre-dinner drinks in the lounge listening to the piani was convivial and gave us the chance to chat to fellow guests. There is "Animacion" most evenings in a separate area... Magicians, dancing and that sort of stuff, but in a separate area. This is not a hotel for children or teenagers in my view, as there is little to keep them occupied and amused, at least at this time of year. I don't know what it would be like in the summer season. When we were there, By far the majority of guests was retired and elderly seeking a peaceful few days in the sun. In conclusion, this is a very comfortable hotel providing very good service, and pleasantly geriatric.More

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

Jane T,

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
