      I've stayed at Riu's all over the world and this has been my worst experience ever. They call this a 4 star hotel, however there is no concierge and no room service. On a more basic level, if you call reception from the room, no one will answer. Then you go down to the front desk in person to ask why no one is answering the phone and they tell you that person is at lunch. The breakfast they offer is amazing. The rooms are nice and hotel is beautiful, however service and maintenance are terrible. Our entire floor on the hotel had no hot water. Once again, no one answered the phone, so we had to go downstairs personally to complain. Once down there, we were joined by other people from our floor for the same complaint. People at front desk said they were sorry for not picking up the phone, but they were busy. The hallways outside the rooms are not well kept. They don't seem to vacuum the floors outside the rooms at all. You will arrive to your room with debris on the floor in front of it almost on a daily basis. The hallways are concrete with a super thin layer of carpet, so you hear people walking outside your room. What they call a pool on the upper floor is the size of a large jacuzzi and closed for private events when we were staying there. They gym is small, has no free weights and no ventilation. I tried to voice all these opinions to management before writing here, but their response was to call Expedia, "my booking agent" to complain. Won't stay here again ever.

      4/5 Good

      Obviously a new hotel....the team are still settling down. The biggest issue is the front desk: incredibly slow, and a huge backlog. Need more staff on duty, and you need to simplify the incredibly bureaucratic process. Also, the lifts are nuts - the software is rubbish.
