Every year we return to the RIU Palace Maspalomus in high hopes that there have been no dramatic changes to a Hotel that I always maintain sets the standard for others to follow. Sure enough our visit at the end of June for 2 weeks did not disappoint. The high quality service from everyone involved, the cleanliness of the rooms and the public areas, the range of excellent foods at both Breakfast and evening Dinner, the bars and the pool area all make this one of the best Hotels we have ever stayed in. We are not on our own in returning on a regular basis as many guests keep coming back. We have developed some lovely relationships with people from Belgium who we see every year. Its very noticeable that more and more British people are going to the hotel on a regular basis which makes it much better for us. When we started going it was hard to find English people to talk too but there is no doubt that the many good reviews on Trip Advisor from people such as ourselves the word has spread. Although more young people are using the hotel itâs a quiet environment for most of the time and mostly suited to the older generation. No games going on in the pool or a entertainment team trying to coax you into playing all sorts of activities. The evening entertainment is Ok although we rarely bother as our preference is to go for a good walk into Town or down to the beach bar area. I note some comments about drinks prices but its always dearer in Hotels. And also bear in mind that at the moment with the pound strong against the Euro the drinks are not that dear. And I might add that having experienced some heavy pricing of drinks in a hotel close to where I live the Palace is cheap!!!! I would agree that 20 Euros per week is steep for the Safe but you have to have that for peace of mind. Its hard to single out members of the staff as they all work so hard to make your stay a pleasure but I would make special mention of Juan Santana the restaurant organiser and senior waiter Mateo and pool barman Daniel who looked after us very well for the 2 weeks we there. This Hotel is a tribute to Roberto Jimenez the Director who was there when we made our first visit in 2005 and is still there running a very good hotel. We will be back in NovemberMore

We had a fantastic holiday in Gran Canaria and so glad we stayed at the Riu Hotel!! The hotel was right by the sand dunes and the view was amazing. The hotel itself was gorgeous, especially the swimming pool and surrounding area. The friendly staff really made our stay special and we would definitely recommend. Wish i was still there :)More

We had never been to Gran Canaria before and this was our first time in a Riu hotel. We were not disappointed at all with anything. The Hotel was well above our expectations. The staff on all levels were helpful. The rooms, restaurant, pools well in fact the whole Hotel was immaculate. We visited the Krystal Restaurant which was well worth it. We have no complaints whatsoever and will be back.More
Been to Gran Canaria 4 times now over a period of years and had stayed in hotels which were bad to average. Had always seen the Riu Palace Maspalomas and its ideal position overlooking the dunes. This year managed to get a good deal as single traveller so thought would give it a try as it looks impressive compared to surrounding hotels some of which are quite a distance away for the beach. I was not let down from the time I arrived to the time I left. On arrival the concierge took my suitcase to my room and was very friendly. The restaurant staff are brilliant and remember you, what drinks you usually have with your meal and were you sit as allocated a table for dinner although breakfast you can sit anywhere. As soon as you have eaten each course the plates are removed from your table very promptly. Never been to a hotel with such friendly waiting staff.The meals were superb and what a variety of food to choose from. The hotel is kept immaculately clean in all areas and cleaning staff always have time to say hello. Finally the reception staff are also brilliant and willing to help and advise if you want to know anything. Will be returning again soon. Being a single traveller you get used to having the worst rooms they have to offer but not here as even had a partial sea view and room was same size as a double Management should be proud of staff they have here and the hard work they put in to ensure you have a good stayMore
