A spacious beach is the icing on the cake at this hotel, which comes with 4 pools and restaurants.
This huge place is split between a main building and an annexe across the gardens. Just over the road there’s a huge sandy beach, and Puerto del Carmen is a half an hour walk away, or 5 minutes in a taxi.
The hotel does well for pools, with 4 plus a couple of extra ones for kids. There’s a quartet of restaurants, including a Mexican. As for activities, there’s everything from archery to art classes.

Great location, very enjoyable.
Just returned from a week at this hotel. Very pleased considering such negative reviews before we came. We had an apartment in a block in the middle of the hotel grounds, very spacious and quiet. Only negative was very hard beds. The grounds were always immaculate and the staff are very friendly. We chose the quieter pool to sit at, swim up bar, plenty of sun beds and a nice place to get food. Beer good and nice cold cava. The food was good especially the Asian restaurant. We went there 3 times as it was so tasty. The Mexican also very nice, we had breakfast in there most mornings as peaceful. Great location as you can leave the hotel at the back through a small gate and explore. Plenty of good walks and you can walk for miles. Good shopping close by and you can walk to Matagorda and see the planes take off and land. Take sun cream, very hot when we were there. It is a large hotel, but once you get your bearings and work out the quiet spots, a great holiday. Can't fault it. No wi-fi though only when you pay. Should be included in this day and age.More
just got home from week at this hotel and i can tell you its unbeatable value... location is 12mins from airport in taxi Â£12.. the staff are the best i have come across in many hotels mostly 5* plus... we go away several times a year and this was booked late on... we were located in room 4452 top floor part sea view which was spotlessly maintained and in very good order. its in older section but has quiet pool with no music.. if you want lively go to other pool near dining area... the bar staff are phenominal and dont wait at any time... food is typical AI and very well presented... shows are usual animation team but the African show and Flamenco show by artists are great... give it a go we will probably try it again in futureMore
Riu excellent hotel
12 of us stayed here from 14th April till 21st to celebrate our friend's 50th. A great time was had by all. The hotel is very clean and in a great location with staff who really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable - nothing was too much trouble. A very good selection of food was available and of a high standard. There was also a good drinks selection. Can highly recommend this hotelMore
Nice Summer Holiday
We stayed in Riu for a week. The first impression wasn`t great. In the check in time they asked us a voucher....which we didn`t have it. We booked online in their own website, but no one asked us that. They kept asking for a voucher and saying that we were going to pay to print. They got to my nerves actually and when someone finally understood that I wasn`t there with any agency they tried to be funny saying that they understand why I was in that stated because I was brazilian. (not very nice start really....) I avoided needed the reception for the week. No one actually explained to us how the 3 restaurants worked so we ended up using the main one more, and in the end of the week we tried to book the other 2... it was hard since all of them were fully booked, we end up eating on them in the last 2 nights, in the second dinner time. we stayed in the rooms around the back pool, which for me it was better. Not a lot of kids, pool has a bar inside and the people working there was great fun. hotel is in a quieter side of town, but still walking distance from town. we decided to have dinner outside the hotel in the last night. In general it was ok, I don`t think I would do a all inclusive again, but it was nice for something different.More

We had a fab time just a shame about the weather. Hotel lovely, nice and clean food great good choices daily. Good drinks selection also. Pool was fab for our little girl, heated pool. It is two hotels put together so if u were to stay in the older part you are a bit 'out of it' not close to the action or main hotel, food, bar etc.More
