We stayed here for a week in July and it was the best holiday I've been on yet! The hotel was fantastic with very spacious rooms and bathroom. There were 3 separate restaurants within the hotel, all of which provided lovely food with a great variety every night. The hotel also offered free bottles of water from reception which is good to know should you need it. The pool and outside areas were great and nothing negative could be said about it. There is a night club at the hotel which although was never overly busy on the nights we went, it was a good laugh nevertheless. Last of all, the animation team were out of this world!! Never come across such lovely and funny people and it is so obvious how much their hearts are in ensuring everyone there has the best holiday. In the evenings also they put on some fantastic shows and entertainment which had everyone laughing! I could 100% recommend this hotel to families and couples alike and would hope to return at some point.More
Lovely hotel and staff
Spent a week here in October, our second visit. The rooms have been updated, our room had a pool view, was large and airy and kept impeccably clean throughout our stay. Food was as expected in an All Inclusive resort, somewhat samey, but always something to eat. Drinks were perfectly acceptable, never had to wait too long to be served. The evening entertainment was not our cup of lea, so spent most evenings in one of the bars in town, about a 5 minute walk away, which had live music, lovely to just sit and watch the world go by. Never saw an unwelcoming, unsmiling or unhappy face in the hotel all week, the staff are a credit to the Hotel. Would probably return, but earlier in the season.More
Industrial tourism on a low budget
Sold as being an exclusive resort, this 4* was terrible and been in better 3* resorts. If you paid £300 for a week, yes great value for money, you get what you bought. Anymore more than that and its robbery. Food- all cooked from frozen (confirmed this with staff) Alcohol-. Besides the super-bock the concoction of cheap alcohol provided was terrible Sunbeds- Some issues never go away (couldnt get any) The problem with this place is that it goes for the mass produced product, try to fill up all rooms at the expense of the customer experience, if you dont mind waiting for dinner, or eating poor quality food, drinks thats ok, and if I paid a low enough amount, I dont mind. But for the image that you are sold, and for the cost. It is definitely not worth it. oh and quote unquote " we dont vaccum the floors of the rooms because there is no carpet in them"More

Stayed for 10 days on the 5th October. Reading negative comments on here really put me off !! Wish I hadn’t bothered reading them . This hotel and all it’s staff and surroundings is beautiful. Absolutely spotless in every corner . Food and drink was plentiful and great . Frozen cocktails are very strong but taste great . Local beer on tap 24 / 7 I think . The entertainment are amazing they work so hard and entertaining everyone every night can’t be east . The little nightclub ( late bar ) is nothing but when you want a drink it’s good enough . My room was amazing and beautiful and great sea views . The walk down to the little beach is a incline and walking back up can be gruelling in the heat but manageable . Local bus right outside the hotel and local supermarket about 10 minute walk away . We walked to villamoura took about 3 hours along the beach 26 klm there and back . Husband got a tattoo at Popeyes . He loves it and there owner was great worth a visit if you like tattoos . Loads of trips to do and loads of car park spaces if you get a car hire . No cats or dogs in the area nothing to spoil your stay . Just a great place to go and 100% will go back . More
Riu Gurana stuck in the past
Second time at this hotel the rooms have been refurbished to a good standard warrants 4 stars for this , the entertainment room has a nice new floor better than previous multi coloured carpet which after a few drinks made you feel a bit giddy. As for the entertainment well the Grease show was with the original soundtrack but was mimed to by the entertainment staff what is the point !!! and it was the same show two and a half years ago no originality there was also a one hour belly dancing show what a bellyful of tosh come on Riu get some decent tribute acts like the Atlantica in Kolymbia Rhodes . The food in the restaurent was very basic the same thing every lunch and dinner grilled pork , chicken and fish , pizzas were doughy and tasteless when we came to this hotel before you was greeted by the management in the restaurent who summoned the head waiter to you this didn't happen once in the week we were there not good in my opinion. The hotel is very clean the staff work very hard in everywhere department but there is no interaction from the staff they are very robotic , the weather while we was there was superb the reason we came to this hotel for the week we did was my wife's 50th birthday we mentioned it to the Thomson shop we booked with two weeks before we travelled but there wasn't a mention of it in our week in the hotel very dissappointed. Overall great location not far from Albuferia and Vilamoura but we will not be returning not until this hotel updates its entertainment and menu choices from the dark ages.More
