As other reviews have mentioned, the hotel was very clean but some of the rooms are beginning to look a little dated and the bathrooms would also benefit from being a face lift.
Being away with teenagers we tended to stay around the rectangular poor which is used for activities throughout the day which meant that there was constant loud music etc. We didn't mind this but for those that do, there is another free form pool which is well away from the noise. Certainly around the noisy pool there was no problem getting sun beds up until lunch time.
The food was, on the whole, good with a wide selection at all meals and the fresh pancakes each afternoon were fantastic. I don't think the alcohol was watered down like I have found before when all inclusive, however the measures were 25ml singles as in the UK rather than the expected larger free hand measures we usually associate with being abroad.
A previous review mentioned bottled water being expensive but when we were there each room had a fridge which was stocked with 3 1.5 litre bottles of still and 3 of fizzy water - all free of charge and if you needed more you just had to mention it to reception and it would be provided.
The staff were all very friendly and very hard working, especially the Animacion Team - 7 young men who worked day and night to ensure that the people who wanted activities were provided with them. As with all Riu hotels I have stayed at, the evening entertainment was mainly provided by the Animacion Team . I must admit, however, the entertainment here was slightly better than at others.
The hotel is only a 10-15 minute walk via the beach or main road into the marina where there are a selection of shops and bars. The weather was very, very hot. We didn't see one cloud all week and the temperature ranged from 28 degrees first thing on a morning till over 40 degrees in the afternoon. We were lucky in that we found an area around the pool where there was a slight breeze which made the intense heat a little more bearable.
