Matthew, 5-night trip
Verified Hotels.com guest review

8/10 Very good

It's a lovely resort and I can't fault the staff; however, it feels like a retirement home, with the clientele being all very old people. The entertainment is all aimed at this group, with massive amounts of Credence Clearwater Revival and ABBA tributes. Despite it being half term, there was no kids club for the first two days, and then only for 90 minutes in the morning. For a family holiday, this is not ideal. There were two "menu" restaurants which felt extremely hostile to children (very haute cuisine, no accessible menu options for children) - my daughter lives in London and can happily eat in restaurants without needing some kind of crappy kids menu, but there wasn't anything remotely suitable for her here. So despite being a gorgeous resort, I don't think we will be coming back here. Also the music goes until 11pm most nights and is extremely loud (there is no double glazing and the hotel walls are very thin) - combined with elderly neighbours waking at the crack of dawn and listening to the news on TV at maximum volume, it is not as restful as it should be.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, excellent food. Why we could not bring coffee to relaxed area after breakfast we find strange. Champagne and juice was allowed. We paid exstra for garden/sea view room. Ground floor, no sun during the whole day. Very cold room

Food was nothing particular. Half of the room exposure was in the shadow so did not get sun during the day. You should ask the reception before you accept the room.

Tips for Riu
Recommend you stay here with the ocean view. The modern hotel is nearby several restaurants if you don't choose the breakfast and dinner options. There is a supermarket and shops that you can walk to if you forget something. Also, recommend you place your towel down early as chairs get taken up. You can take a cab to the entrance to the Dunes. I don't recommend you walking from this hotel to Dunes.

Great visit to Gran Canaria
Resort is really nice! Much older crowd than anticipated. Dinner and breakfast included in stay which was a nice surprise. Located right on the sea but no beach access. Had a really cute shopping pavilion right next door with lots of dining options if you felt like venturing out. Was much nicer than the riu in maspalomas which is really outdated but has a really great location in the heart of maspalomas. Nice place though!!
