This huge hotel has a massive pool and is just a few minutes’ walk from the beach and Playa del Ingles town centre.
The Riu Waikiki really delivers on location. It’s a 5-minute walk from the heart of Playa del Ingles and the beach is only 10 minutes away on foot – even less if you take the free shuttle bus.
Rooms are spread out across 5 circular towers, arranged in a horseshoe shape around a large central swimming pool. All of them come with their own balcony or terrace.

Excellent hotel, the staff was really friendly and helpful. Great selection of food and drink in the all inclusive. Brilliant atmosphere in and around the hotel. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Would definitely go back.More
Nice little holiday!
We stayed at the riu Waikiki for a week at easter and overall it was really nice. I was 5 months pregnant at the time so was a bit hesitant beforehand that I would struggle with the food but it was fine in the end I just stayed away from some of the lesser cooked meats etc but there was still enough to choose from. The staff were very friendly and made a huge effort with the kids staying there which was lovely to see. Our only real problem was the noise in our room, we were in the back block facing the road so there was a lot of traffic noise and not a very nice view meaning we wasn't able to enjoy the balcony in the evenings. We did request a room change but they said it would take at least a few days and as we was only there for a week it seemed pointless to unpack twice. Spare from the room issue though I would recommend the hotel to others More

Nice hotel but lack of drinking water
Stayed for a week (Sept 2014). Food was very good with plenty of choice, the salads were excellent, rooms were clean and recently decorated although bed was hard, staff were mostly very friendly. Nice hotel. One issue, the hotel doesn't provide free drinking water outside of the all inclusive hours (8am - 12am) so if you're thirsty at night you'll stay thirsty unless you want to buy fizzy drinks from a machine. I asked Juan Antonio on reception to ask the manager to provide this but nothing happened in the time we were there. Free wi-fi would be nice too. The Canary Islands hotels generally need to up their game if they're going to compete with Egyptian all inclusives as I think standards there are higher for the same price.More

Best animation team I have ever seen.
This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in for entertainment, the animation team are really professional and were even better than some of the professional acts that I have seen. Sergio was the person in charge and I went to see them EVERY night and I have never laughed so much in my life. I would recommend this hotel to anybody especially if the same animation team are there.More

Great value and friendly all inclusive
A great place for all inclusive at a good price. We visited in August and had a room in the E block. The rooms are fine; nothing fancy but cleaned every day. Beds are the only negative - very hard! No air con and it was about 30 degrees at night. On balance it's well worth the money in spite of no air con. Would be four star with air con. Food is excellent, plenty of choice of freshly prepared meals. Staff all very friendly. Pool and communal areas kept in exemplary cleanliness.More
