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

Nice and Entertaining Hotel
this hotel is very interesting in its layout, 5 round buildings with 8 floors in each, on arrival we were greeted and made welcome, reception was bright and airy and receptionist was very smart, booked us in and gave us directions to our room, we had a room on the 8th floor and getting there was a nice easy ride in a modern lift,the room was well presented decor and furniture well kept, bathroom bright and clean, free toiletries and fresh smelling towels, dining room was huge and plenty of tables to accommodate a full hotel, food was plentiful and lots of choices, to many really i over ate,waiting staff were fast and efficient and nothing to much trouble, pools well maintained and lots of sunbeds, the entertainment staff were really good at there jobs and kept everyone well entertained, plenty of fun round the pool, and night shows were fantastic well done gang all in all a great hotel and would recommend it highlyMore
Back again for the 6th time
Just sitting enjoying a cool beer at the pool bar. We booked to come back to this hotel as we love the location and have enjoyed the hotel before. Hotel check in was quick and efficent and we received the requests we asked for, high floor and sea view. Room was clean and well presented. Hotel facilities just as good as ever with frendly efficent staff. All staff smiling and helpful. With regards to changes over the years.... Food still good but not as much selection as used to be. Still lovely though. Really could be doing with air con as very hot at night. Alot less british and irish customers these days which i feel is due to the price hike of this hotel in the uk. Always plenty of sunbeds and rooms are cleaned regularily. Playa del ingles. This resort is getting very tired and in need of a financial boost . So many shut shopping centres , bars and restaurants. Its a shame to see . I first came here in 2002 and the place was buzzing. We stayed in Meloneras in March and rhought the area was beautiful. Hopefully they will decide to do some work to playa del ingles. Overall the hotel is a great 3 star hotel in a great location with lovely staff. Entertainment staff work incredibly hard along with maids and bar staff. Nothing too much trouble. Free safes in the rooms still which is a bonus. Could do with a 24hr water machine available. More
