      Everything was excellent, the only issue was ther was no evening restaurant or room service, also unfortunately, I was not able to extend my stay as you were fully booked. All else was perfect. I will definitely be staying again.

      Our 7 day stay: Reception was unwelcoming and unhelpful. Having no hot water one morning was not good. Having no soap in bathroom and no replacement shower liquid was not good. The hair dryer only works on low. The balcony has no furniture. The bathroom has no toiletries. There is no towel rail and so if you hang your towel on the hook it will not dry. The choice of food available, is like most Spanish hotels – wonderful. However, here too Riu have got things seriously wrong. The vast breakfast rooms in which you are sat are at a considerable distance to where the food/coffee/juice is located. The design of these rooms mean that when seated you feel like you are in the central reservation of a motorway as other guests herd up and down the rooms, back and forth to the food. Furthermore, the staff at breakfast are too eager to clear your plates the minute you have stopped eating, and so if you go back to the counter for bread or fruit your juice or coffee may have disappeared. We overcame this problem by alternating our trips, having lost a few coffees on the way. The efficiency of the elevators in a building of 27 storeys is crucial. They are computer operated, you need to use your room key-card to select a floor from reception. Frequently the touch-pad allowing you to select your floor doesn’t work and when large number of guests are using the elevators such as when conferences are using the hotel you can wait 2-3 mins for an elevator at breakfast time.
