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 two main buildings and annexe blocks 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 a range of things to choose from.

Fab weather! A bit disappointed.
Very large hotel it is actually 2 hotels linked together with main facilities situated in the building, there are too many people using the main restaurant food improved our 2nd week ,tables are too close together you cannot relax and enjoy your meal , the 3 themed restaurants are better for space, once you had your meal you then struggled to get a table outside. We experienced cockroaches and ants in our room informed reception and reps maid did spray but they were always around. Sunbeds were plentiful but again too close, if you wanted a good spot put your alarm on! Must mention the Staff are lovely and smile all the time ,cleaners do a great job on the rooms , animation team were great especially Pepe he is so funny. We had booked this hotel for a treat Thankfully the weather was great. We stayed at La Geria last year that was like a 5 star compared to Riu. A word of warning if you struggle walking the 2nd hotel is over a bridge can be quite a walk if you are at the end of hotel. Above is my honest opinion hotel is in a great location just a shame it is too crowded just wasn't what we expected. More

Just returned from a lovely break in the sun . Can get windy at times but warm. Cannot fault the staff very accommodating and cleanliness. Only have a couple of comments: Gets very busy at meal times did have trouble finding a table for two as there are a lot of tables for more than three people and wow betide you if you sit at one of those tables. And secondly the sun beds, they are very close together ok if you like to chat to your neighbours, as most places you get the early risers with towels then go off for the day as we notice when we had to chase the sun x More
This is the cleanest hotel I have ever been to and I have been to many countries all over the world . Food excellent, plenty to choose from, you will not go hungry , there is food available from breakfast till evening , they also had a gluten free section small but a nice touch , you must try the themed restaurants on site they have 2, they are some of the best we have come across. Everybody at this hotel from front of house to Maintenance are happy , smiling and polite . The entertainment team , wow you work so hard from morning to night , Pepe you are a credit to this team , funny engaging and the best legs in the world , how you run and dance in those high heels are beyond me , but you are one in a million never change - just fabulous darling x Trips -as a volcanic island this island is amazing , a must see is fire mountain and the volcanic Fields a real chance to see nature at its best. Hotel - The second part of the hotel is the quietest , it was 2 hotels at one point but is now 1 , it is a 5-10 min walk to the main part where the entertainment and most activity’s are. So if you don’t mind a walk and quiet ask to be in the quiet part as the hotel staff call it. Sun beds plentiful, only down side was access to the pools for me and this is only because I have mobility problems , I can not do steps and need a walk in access , 2 pools had this but not the others so was limited to where I could swim, if you have mobility problems bear this in mind. The pools were very cold even though from the 1st November 2 were supposed to be heated . One was heated on the 2nd November but then it seemed to be turned off . Rooms - clean tidy and spacious , load of coat hangers and hanging space , ( no need to iron lol ) bathroom good size , ours had a bath and shower , if I had though I should have asked for a walk in shower but there were good secure handles to hold onto , so not to much of a problem with a little bit of help. I am sure if I asked they would have moved me. Please ask for more pillows if required, they give you one each and I personally like 3 , asked and they were delivered that morning, this hotel has a we are here to please attitude and that really does come across , they are happy to please you . This hotel I cannot fault really , if we went to the same place twice, I would return. well done Rui this is a top hotel your staff are a credit to you . More
Booking a Riu hotel guarantees high standards. You can be sure of friendly, efficient staff, spotless cleanliness , good food and drinks and a very hardworking Animation team. This is true of this hotel and we had a very enjoyable week. Also a feature and a down side for some is the very cramped space around the pools and between tables in the dining room. At this time of the year it's not a big problem if you don't mind fellow guests within touching distance but in the high season, might be a little manic. Highlights for us were the Asian restaurant, a very good perfectly laid out room and Pepe, the highly camp and brilliantly funny Animator. We also enjoyed the help yourself drinks stations for soft drinks, beer , hot drinks and wine. Bottled water is given out at Reception and there is a large, free safe in the room. Our room as requested was in the main hotel on the top floor. The annexe is a bit of a trek if your room is on the far side and would not suit the less able. The quiet pool over there is nice though, with a swim up bar. The evening entertainment is a mix of the Animation team miming to show songs and professional acts. You can't fault the energy put in by the Animation team and some of the comedy, intentional or not! The daytime entertainment is varied and enthusiastic and Pepe leading the Aqua Aerobics in a female Baywatch outfit is a sight to see! Outside the hotel, accessed by a locked gate, is a promenade with a nice walk to shops and bars , overlooking the wide expanse of sandy beach. No need to keep your room on before departure as very good courtesy rooms are provided. Overall, a very good holiday in a hotel with great facilities and fantastic staff as we had expected and we would definitely stay in a Riu again.More
We keep going back
Love this hotel, my wife and I have been three times. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is really clean. Food very good, especially in the Yashima theme restaurant. Plenty of sunbeds around the pools, or if you prefer a beach, thre is a long sandy one just cross the road. ideal for whatever type of holiday you want. will go back again.More
