I just spent a week with my daughter in the above Hotel. It was an ideal situation right on the sea front. Three pools one adults only and two children pools. It was all inclusive and I am always a bit cautious with these kind of holidays because I think you are a captive audience and don't get the best. I was wrong the food was excellent, cooked in front of you. Four restaurants. One Asia and one that is turned into a Grill three nights and Canaria Fare the other four. These you have to book but there is no extra charge.
There was bar or self service venues for drinks at all the pools. Amstel Beer, Red, White and Rose Wine, All the soft drinks including diet ones. Tea and Coffee always available.
There was a cocktail bar i from of the Reception and before the entertainment area.
The bar staff were friendly and no much was too much trouble. In fact all the Staff were friendly, attentive and eager to please.
Our room was a garden one with a view of the sea, spotlessly clean with a retro theme. Bathrooms roomy, with an excellent shower. Always plenty of towels. You are given a ticket for your poolside towel to receive the first and then change it at the pool everyday. Giving it into Reception when you leave. These were lovely fluffy ones in a pale salmon colour.
Meloneras is a Created Resort but nothing there below a four star. The shops are very up market boutique with designer names.
We did eat out a couple of nights and the Restaurants near the lighthouse were excellent.
If I have a criticism it is that all the outside eating and drinking places catered for smokers there were no non smoking areas allotted. his is something I do not like because I feel a person should be able to enjoy the ambience of any place without somebodies smoke wafting over.
All in all though this a good hotel with exceptional staff to pamper you.More

Good quality Riu
Stayed at the ClubHotel Riu Gran Canaria from 23-30 Sept. Hotel really clean and recently refurbished so very modern although corridors to rooms don't look like they have been refurbished. Rooms are pretty spacious with clean lines and bathroom really nice with walk-in shower. Very large grounds so a fair bit of walking to get to pools. Plenty of sunbeds but adults only area near Purple Bar was quite difficult to get beds and so we only went there 2 mornings. The food had plenty of choice and there seemed to be something for almost everybody. The drinks were of a good standard and you could have branded spirits by just asking for them. All staff really friendly and animation team put on some good shows. One thing which I think the hotel could improve on is the entertainment in the main bar which consisted of a singing act 6 nights a week who started their session at around 6:30 and this went on until 11pm. I think the entertainment in that bar needs to be more varied.
More positively though the hotel is in a good location very close to shopping centres and not far from beaches. There are taxis opposite the front entrance to the hotel and they are pretty cheap, 6 Euro to Playa del Ingles. The ony downside of our holiday was that the weather wasn''t that good and nothing like I have experienced in Gran Canaria before at that time of year so will probably think about taking my Canary Islands holiday next year at the beginning of September again and I may well return to this hotel. I have visited the Riu Vistamar in Amadores which was good but would only stay there again if it had a total refurbishment.More
Great Return Visit
Disappointed is one word you will not use at the Clubhotel Riu Gran Canaria. This was our second visit here in four years and I must say our first visit was fantastic but with all the improvements done in the refurbishment the hotel has made the most of it`s prime location. Checking in was swift and Julia was a joy to meet after a 4 hour flight. Rooms are modern spacious light bright and airy, working air con and large flat screen TV. There are 4 restaurants, 2 Main dining rooms which are walk in, 1 Asian restaurant and the Atlantico restaurant which these both require evening reservations which is an advantage as you know you have a table to go to as the main restaurant you could have to wait for a table at busy times. Food is of a buffet style and I found an abundance of choice at all mealtimes throughout the stay. Bar`s are located in the main show room, terrace, pools and the Purple bar looking over the sea. There is a good selection of drinks most of which are recognisable brands. Tea and Coffee machines are dotted around the hotel and are easy to use but could do with the hot water temp increasing. The pool area has changed a lot from our first visit and they have done a great job, 2 main pools, 1 children`s pool, 1 adults only salt water pool and 1 infinity pool with views over the Atlantic. Sunbeds were reserved and I could see in peak season this could become a problem but we found plenty of vacant beds even in the afternoon. All in all a great hotel with some great staff in a great location. The only minor thing that I would say needs looking at is the evening terrace entertainment. Same trio, same songs for 9 nights and mostly aimed at the German guests. Being that there is another 3 RIU hotels in the area rotating the entertainment might be an idea . Outside the hotel are several shopping areas with restaurants and bars even an open air cinema showing recent films all in English.
Please be aware that not all of the shops sell genuine goods, if unsure ask the reps.More

Hotel was amazing, spotlessly clean food was divine. The location was beautiful lovely walk along the front, great location with plenty of shopping very close by. Drinks were perfect and staff really friendly and helpful. Only drawback was no free wifi in rooms had to use in reception but not a major problem would definitely go back.More
