Shame about the Pool towels
Everything near perfect, hotel, room, grounds; food was reasonably good compared with most package tour hotels but an bit repetitive, loved the free Cava for breakfast and eating outdoors in the sun was a delight, but slight downside was the reserving of sunbeds by placing towels on early in the mornings (luckily there was always a few left to choose from albeit in not so good positions); hotel policy is to not to allow this but they do not appear to do anything about it so far as we could see! Unlike wearing (smart) shorts for dinner (in the outside seated area when the majority of their clients had finished their meal and with all but 2 tables still occupied); I know you will say rules are rules but I think double standards; anyway it took the edge of a brilliant holidayMore
My 2nd time at this hotel and it was better than the first time and the first time was amazing. Everything from the waiter bringing a pot of coffee in a morning, not to mention the 7 different types of freshly made smoothie, to the evening meals of fillet steak and whole leg of lamb carved off the bone, to the spa pool and Jacuzzi and the cleanliness of the rooms, they exceed in all aspects. Arrived and greeted by friendly reception staff, shown to my room by the concierge who took my suitcase and was very chatty. The restaurant staff are also excellent, friendly and seem to know what drink you want before you do! Friendly bar staff polite and courteous, always on hand to go get whatever you wanted - no cash needed, charges can be put to your room and paid on check-out. My room was a corner room, with an enormous balcony overlooking the Dunes to the sea. Gorgeous. The room was clean and airy, plenty of light - (hairdryer not great though! good job I took my own). It had a well stocked fridge, a tv with plenty of UK channels, you can hire the safe for a small charge and Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel. Both pool areas immaculate and well kept garden areas. Clean pool towel available daily if you wanted. I liked the smaller pool area best, it had a Jacuzzi and water jets and plenty of sun lounger beds. The week went by far too quickly. This hotel is a gem. .More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks with my family. The hotel is very nice and clean (thanks to the cleaners who tidied our rooms very well during our stay) the hotel was spotless, the staff would clean the windows often and vaccume the floor every few days and wash the couvers on the chairs a lot and polish the door handles!!🙂 The rooms are big and the beds are comfy. There is a big balcony and the room we stayed in had a lovely pool view and overlooking the sand dunes. The food is really good and theres a wide selection of food (although the children's options was quite limited). The location of the hotel is very nice, you can go for walks in the evenings accross the sand dunes or on the bath next to them to all the shops and bars to get a drink. I would go back to the hotel but when I am much older because the hotel isn't really for children as there is no music by the pool and no floats or balls allowed in the pool. The pool is really nice and big however children can't go in the jacuzzi🙁 people do reserve sun beds but compare to the other hotels I have stayed in, it isn't at all hard to find sunbeds ( there were five of us and we managed to get a sunbed by the main pool at 12:00!!😊 The staff are really nice and allways say hello when you walk past them, they are very helpful and smiley. For lunch we often got food from the cafe at the hotel- the food is quite expensive however really nice. The drinks there are expensive (almost €3 for a very small glass of fanta). Over all this is an amazing hotel and looked after very well. I am about to leave Riu Palace Maspalomas and I am sad to leave because it is so nice (and I have school in a few days but I will really miss it here) xxxMore
A very pleasant stay
This is a very good traditional hotel on an ideal location. You are right on the sand dunes of Maspalomas and can watch the sunset on top of the dunes every evening. The staff are very professional and helpful. They look after you with a big smile on their faces. What impressed me the most was how attentive they were. My daughter and I are vegetarians and we were provided with soy milk in the morning and they could even remember our usual drinks with our dinners every night. There was always a large selection of salads and vegetables and vegetarian meals. A gentleman called Juan at the reception helped and gave us a room with a better view at no extra cost and his colleagues were always polite, helpful and professional. This is a very well maintained and spotless hotel. This is the hotel where you would go back to year after year because they really look after you and you actually miss it just as I do already!More
Another wonderful stay!
This is our fourth or the fifth year visiting Riu Palace Maspalomas in a row! It is like coming back home! This due to the wonderful staff and the management. They always smile, they always are helpful and they work very hard to give us all a lovely holiday. The dunes and sea view from our balcony/terrace are breathtaking. Despite being right by the dunes, even the terrace is spotlessly clean. We love our breakfast under the begonvilias at the breakfast terrace followed by the complimentary cava. We love the smaller pool better as it is surrounded by the different types of palm trees. Lunch at the pool bar is always plentiful and fresh. Do not forget the trio ice cream 😉. For a change after a few years of break we also decided to dine at the Krystal restaurant one night. Elegant ambiance, wonderful service and the delicious food: Norwegian salmon and the chocolate dessert were lovely! We have already booked for next year!More
