Fantastic Holiday

We stayed here for 2 weeks from oct 24th till 7th Nov. Beautiful location, Please be aware that on certain weekends the hotel plays host to vast amount of locals for party weekends. During this time the hotel tasks on a different vibe and is very lively and noisey. However this did not spoil our stay and we had a absolutely perfect holiday and would recommend staying here. The hotel is clean, all the staff are friendly. We had 2 excellent waiters Dominic and Jose who made a special effort to make us welcome each and every day. A Tip before you visit take ample suncream as it is very very expensive if you need to buy more while your there.

Just perfect cant wait to return

This was our first time at this hotel and going off some of the reviews we were a little nervous however we soon realised there was no need.
The hotel is lovely and well kept - people are always cleaning up and tending to the areas. The rooms are spacious and tidy with a good sized balcony. The room has air con and also a large ceiling fan which we found to be more than enough to keep the room cool.
The beach is just simply stunning palm trees for miles with plenty of sunbeds and long enough to have sunset strolls down it.
The pools have plenty of sunloungers no matter what time u go down but we did find the gabanas had towels laid on them from as early as 7.30 in the morn but this wasnt an issue for us.
The food is nice over the 2 week period we had an array of options and even when i was being picky i always found something to have.
As a whole if you want rest and relaxation then this is the place. We loved it and will definitely be returning.


I read a lot of reviews on this property not one did I read mention ROACHES !!!! Found 4 bugs in 2 weeks in my room, but in the lobby bar area the out door furniture were loaded with them. My husband would pull out the cushions before sitting down & I was sitting just out side the coffee bar & the roaches were having the time of there lives on the chair in front of me :( I have stayed in many RIU Palace Hotels in in the past 6yrs & this is the first I saw Roaches. I found the staff to be nice, Friendly & very helpful. Danny at the lobby Bar, Fabulous, always had a smile, Manager at front check in desk I think his name is Jeff tall gentleman, couldn't do enough for u, very nice & friendly & always had a ear to ear smile, made u feel welcome
