Excellent hotel,shame about the location

Stayed for two weeks 11th-25th October 2014,first time at this hotel.As all the other Riu hotels we have stayed in over the years unable to fault the actual hotel with regards to the food,cleanliness of rooms and pool areas,the staff in all areas were excellent.We did not get what we had asked for thro the travel agent(a high floor overlooking the pool)we got the first floor and could not see the pool.The only down side to the hotel is the location,needed to bus or taxi to get to the resort centres every time,not many local bars available in the evenings so you were basically tied to the hotel unless you taxied.No control over bar bills(you don't get a duplicate copy when you sign)we ended up with 3 bills on our room No,not our signatures.If we had not kept a tally ourselves we would have been 35euros out of pocket plus we had the embarrassment of questioning our bill at reception.We fortunately had very good weather during the 14 days,if we hadn't god only knows what the taxi bill would have been!!!!!!!More

Lovely,clean hotel. All staff very friendly. Extremely good selection of food in the dining hall. Plenty of sunbeds/mattresses. No noisy animation team or music during the day. Only downfall was the last day. Late flight back, so tried to arrange late checkout, Hotel was busy, so unable to do that. Decided to use courtesy room...let's just say it could have done with a bit more organisation!More

Anne Swansea Late Summer Holiday

Stayed at the Riu Palace the 2nd week of October We came for a quiet relaxing holiday and this hotel offered just that . On arrival we were greeted by a cheerful doorman who took charge of our bags while we checked in . Yes there is a 20 euro fee for the safe and is worth it and gave us peace of mind for the week We travel abroad x2 a year and a fee for the safe is about standard . Our room was on the 2nd floor and had a lovely view of the pool and also dunes. And no we did not have any unwanted sand on our balcony in the hotel or around the pool during our week's stay Our room was lovely clean and was also kept immaculate by Raquel . The hotel was maintained to very high standard . The food was exceptional and there was good a variety . for breakfast and 6 30pm evening meal. The waiters were very helpful pleasant and had a good understanding of all languages We would return to this pleasant and friendly hotel .More

Not for us

We have been coming to maspalomas for 6 years and we booked this hotel for the first time through Thomson. First the negatives- we paid Thomson an extra £168 for a sea view, all we got was a second floor room facing the palm trees, so my advise is don't pay for extras it's just pot luck on what you get, but if you are German or Dutch you will get the best. Meal times- didn't like the restrictions of the times for dinner. Positive- great location, customer service is excellent. It was both mine and my husbands birthday the day after each other, a nice touch was you get a bottle of cava delivered to your room so we got 2. We will be going back to our usual accommodation next year as this hotel isn't for us.More
