Simply the best
This hotel was perfect in every way The buffet breakfasts and buffet evening meals were absolutely delightful. We spent our anniversary here and Xmas day and Xmas was so lavish. On our anniversary there was a bottle of champagne in our room along with a lovely little flower arrangement so pretty . We dined in the Krystal restaurant and they had decorated the table it was just beautiful. I could not fault the staff they were all lovely and very attentive. Even to those who cleaned the rooms they did a new little design every day on the top mat this was very well done. The buffet restaurant staff were excellent always knew what to have on your table and your plates etc were taken from your table straight away. They would even watch what food you had chosen so that bring it was a meat they came straight away and changed your knife i have to admit this is what we called service all were wonderful evening as the buffet opened in the evening the management were there to greet the guests the meals were excellent and the chef s did a great job. We can only thank you all for your wonderful service and will hope to see you next year .More

I have just returned for a week break with a friend, the staff and service 100% make this hotel. Very attentive and friendly in every area, too many names to mention. The hotel was spotlessly clean, the food was good too, a great selection to choose from. Predominantly older guests and the entertainment just typical hotel stuff, not much to do locally either, I'm not really into the commercial centres, all a bit tacky. However if it's a week rest with great weather and you're happy to do just that, then a great hotel for R&R. There are some really good walks in the surrounding area too, the dunes of course, but with just flip flops for my feet, between the hot sand and being very windy, I gave them a miss. More
Perfect from the start.
We arrived on Friday 24th February for 1 week. From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty. Nothing is too much trouble for any staff member. Andy who shows you to your room, and Enrique and Miguel in the dining room are especially great and friendly. The hotel is not really for families, more for couples. It is perfectly relaxing all day long. The shows in the evening are fine and the house-band are okay for dancing to. With regards to the location, it's 20-25 minute walk over the sand dunes to Maspalomas and a 1 hour walk along the promenade to San Augustin. There are bars and restaurants around the hotel, but apart from watching football we didn't use them. Some people have posted that the hotel is dated, my view is that it's classy. It has carpets and pictures in the dining room and it really is like going out for a meal. Too many hotels overseas have the canteen feel, this certainly didn't. The bedrooms are clean and well furnished. I have never been to Gran Canaria before, but if I did go back , I can't imagine it would be anywhere else but this hotel.More
A wonderful return
We visted Riu Palace Hotel on 2nd March having stayed there for 2 weeks in 2016. We received a warm welcome and again were delighted with the cleanliness and quality of this hotel. The staff in all sections, restaurant, reception, cleaning are very well trained but allowed to be themselves and to have fun with the guests . The food is outstandingly good with a huge selection. We had such a lovely time and we plan to visit again. We highly recommend it for a very relaxing and happy holiday.More
