Good experience but won’t be coming back
I will start with the disadvantages, I have paid for all inclusive expecting everything included, guess what not at all you cannot even get a small bottle of water you have to fill it up in a cup and also not even a cup of coffee my husband had to get the cheapest coffee from the automatic coffee machine that tastes rubbish but to get a proper machine coffee he had to pay €2.50 per cup of coffee. The food wasn’t too bad but definitely wasn’t much selection of food to choose from. The rooms are out dated for the amount we’ve paid. The entertainment wasn’t bad at least my kids had fun, we barely used Riwo pool as it was not much to do. Every morning we got a shuttle to the holiday world pools it was fantastic there kids had a blast. Lastly my husband accidentally left his two tshirt Iv called the reception twice I found them busy and I left them a message guess what no reply. Overall I think this place need more improvement.

what I booked
Not what I booked . I booked a junior suite but was put in a standard room in holiday village . Junior suites are in the Polynesian hotel . Not allowed to change , not allowed to upgrade even if I paid more , what I got was a allocation on arrival holiday in holiday world this was made very clear by the staff in holiday village !, The costs also match the Polynesian hotel not the cheaper holiday village !! Completely unable to contact Hotels.com got a customer service email address which was a waste of time as it’s not monitored. Holiday village was a decent enough hotel clean , reasonable food and drink , decent room but I was expecting sun beds on the patio and good views and got four chairs and a view of the local train line ! I use Hotels.com regularly but very disappointed with this arrangement.

8/10 Very good

We stayed at the Hotel Riwo, one of the four hotels in this complex. If purchasing the roulette deal this is most likely where you would end up. On the plus side, this is a smaller hotel and we liked this as we had a 5 and 2 year old, pools were not overly busy, the evening entertainment was more intimate but you could take a stroll to other hotels to use the facilities like bowling in the polynesia. However, this hotel is placed a good walk up a very steep hill.l, the hotel provides a bus between 10am and 6pm but its a tiring trek if you need to do it with 2 kids. Beac club which is included is great for kids, would be better for older kids and teenagers with lots of water slides deeper pools. The food at Riwo was good. Good selection of foods each day and evening but have to agree with other reviews, can get a little repetitive. Drinks were very good, free slushies for kids and adults had a good selection of premium alcohols like smirnoff, bacardi, gordons, beefeater and loads more all included. All in all a good holiday especially as we got it at a reduced price around January and paid a little over half the normal nightly rate. I would recommend a visit.
