The international buffet restaurant is where you'll find breakfast, lunch and dinner on offer.It's a great place to visit for late breakfast after a lie in. There's also show cooking, watch the tasty dishes being prepared right in front of you. There's a themed buffet once a week, with poolside seating.
The entertainment programme is suitable for adults with a combination of live music and high calibre shows, there's definitely something to offer everyone. Just check the entertainment programme for more information. You may prefer to dance the night away at the disco under the bridge between the hotels. The disco kicks off at 10pm.
Just got back from a week's stay here and we loved it. It is a big place, so if you like something cozy, it's not for you. Having said that, the food, staff, rooms, pools, gardens were all excellent. This is the second Riu hotel we have stayed in, and it did not disappoint. We had a room near the quiet pool, which we tended to stay at, but if you want a bit more action and take part in the activities, then head over to the main pool. Always lots of sunbeds available, even though the hotel was pretty full. Would definitely recommend staying hereMore
We read a lot of the reviews and was worried but we did not need to be. The dining room is busy but no more busy than many all inclusive resorts. Yes you do have to get up early to get the best sun beds but this is common everywhere now and there was others if you did not . The restaurant food served a lot of pork and this did get abit repetitive but was fine for a week. The hotel was large and we were in the main block so didn't have any long walks but visited the other section and didn't think it was to far have walked further in other larger resorts. The hotel is spotless and the staff are always cleaning. The hotel does have a lot of German guests we were even on a shared bus getting there but not a problem for us. The entertainment was good most of the time. Would go back.More

Perfect for a relaxing break
Recently returned from our second stay at this brilliant hotel. The hotel staff were always friendly and helpful and I really have to commend the in-house entertainment team for their hard work and dedication in providing a nightly show to cater for all ages and tastes. I have read a couple of negative reviews on here regarding the hotel food but again I have to praise the hotel for its efforts to feed so many people of various nationalities for so many hours throughout the day. I found there to be a great selection of food to eat and I can be quite fussy about hotel buffets. The one thing the hotel could improve on would be to provide free wifi to guests even if only in the reception area.More

Unimpressed and Dissapointed
Visited early November with my wife for a week away to relax and enjoy the sun. Room was a bit of a walk from reception but nice with a great view over the sea, there were occasionally some strange smells coming from the water / waste plant near our room by the back gate.
The weather was great however no way you can relax at this resort.
Two hotels knocked into one does not work, problems we found as follows
1. Long walks to and from the only breakfast buffet.
2. Every meal including the two specialised restaurants is a buffet and I have been in less violent rugby scrums trying to get something to eat, it's unbelievable how rude people can be when buffet food is served. We found the food to be cheap and nasty to the degree we went into town every night and enjoyed the vast array of very nice and well priced restaurants. Btw highly recommend the Himalaya restaurant we visited there twice !!!! Fantastic food.
3. As usual you need to get up at 6 to reserve a sun bed in a decent position and the sun beds are crammed so close together it's hard to try and get a bit of space to yourself and can't help to over hear every conversation of those stuffed next to you. The pools are very nice and clean.
4. The beach is nothing to do with the hotel its private and you need to pay for a sun bed and extra for a parasol. When we were there it's quiet a walk to the beach and a further walk to the sea as it went out a long way during the day but of course this changes during the year. It was also very windy down on the beach. There were also no services on the beach for food or drink.
Overall we were disappointed but had a great time.More
