This huge hotel has a massive pool and is just a few minutes’ walk from the beach and Playa del Ingles town centre.
This hotel, formerly called 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.

Not a RIU HOTEL any more so disappointed as not same standard
This is NOT a RIU hotel any more !! We were told when we saw the rep it had just been taken over by another group , and you could tell . Nice hotel , needs an update , especially bathrooms . But was spotlessly clean . Staff lovely , food good ,but samey, not bacon every morning tho, which my husband not happy about . Sun beds in shade half of the day , and a bit cramped , Was windy while we were there so we got bus to Puerto Rico , where it's sheltered so out of the wind . This was easy as bus stop just out side left of the hotel I love gran canaria for winter sun , but I'd go to Puerto Rico or Amadores next time and make sure it was a Riu . More
not at the moment
hotel is fine but right now there is work being done at the hotel next door and the workers seem to want to make as much noise as possible. food is not that good and there was hardly ever bacon for breakfast. the saloon bar is under the swimming pool and has a constant smell of damp. the Kasbah is less than 10 minutes walk away and is a great night out. especially the irish bar.it is about 20mins to jumbo centre which is good daytime shopping .More

Nice hotel lovely food and frendly staff
I stayed here in March 2014 and spent my birthday there .. Wich the staff new about and made a nice table for me at dinner with a candle and a happy birthday. The hotel is mainly of such and German and Spanish there was not so many English but we didn't mibd this at all. The staff were nice and the food was great. Our room was clean and nice bedding but we overlooked a motorway wich wasn't ideal. There is a disco with entertainment and plenty of staff to serve. We went all inclusive and it was great value for money. Afternoon snacks are very good plenty of choice all day long. Recommended quiet and respectful with a great ambience and fab food.More

Could be better
Check in went smoothly. Although we didn't get a room high up overlooking the pool as requested when we booked montgs ago.so ground floor looking outvat a wall it was. The rooms don't have kettles or a fridge but you can hire them for â¬12 & â¬40 per week respectively. The only trouble with the rooms are that you can hear everything that is going on next door & above at night.The rooms are basic but kept clean. We found all the staff very nice & friendly & all the staff in the restaurant where fantastic. We didn't have any designated table you sat where you wanted.The food was fine & full of choice every day, although I think it would be repetative if stayed longer than 7 days.The pool is very clean but you can only use half the sunbeds as the sun only shines on half the pool area at a time in the winter. As said before this hotel is frequented by lots of Germans so you need to get your towel on a sunbed before breakfast!.All in all we found the hotel to be in a great lolocation & great friendly staff. The hotel could do with concentrating on updating a bit & also providing a few extras like free Wi fi kettles & fridges in the rooms & a kids sanded play area.More
