First of all the good points. The hotel decor is lovely as were the bedrooms. The shower was excellent and the beds super comfy. The rear entrance takes you out onto the seafront where you can walk for miles, especially to the Marina. Breakfast was quite decent. All the staff were friendly and helpful. A big thank you to Gary from TUI who arranged the tests for return to UK. Bad points. This is NOT a TUI 4 Star Platinum hotel. I've stayed at plenty. The evening meals were horrible. I never saw a potato or decent veg. It was fish nearly all the time. Swordfish for example. Another night was a rabbit and rice concoction. Salads were passable. The brown towels in the bathroom were so thin and small it was laughable. Why, why? Get some new towels please. We had a room overlooking the side street where you were face to face with an apartment block. The street at the front of the hotel is completely run down and most places were closed down. Last but not least - the evening entertainment was dire. I'm in my 70s but really a keyboard player one night and rubbish singers at other times. Apart from the beautiful interior of this hotel, it is not 4 Star in my opinion. I'm sorry.

Med cruise from Malaga was cancelled so opted for a week at the Riu Nautilus. The rooms were clean and very comfortable, the staff were fantastic from the moment we checked in at the front desk, the restaurant bar/staff and housekeeping were always on hand to advise or assist and although always wearing masks you knew they were smiling. Big thank you to Gema and the team in the Ole restaurant, fantastic food and service.

From beginning to end all staff were extremely helpful, polite and friendly. This was our first visit to the Nautilus but will definitely not be our last and we very much look forward to visiting again very soon.
