I went for a week with a friend and was pleasantly surprised at the hotel and food for the price that we paid. The rooms were clean and tidy and overall it was great value for money. Lovely weather and helpful staff.

Yet again, a lovely holiday at the Touareg. The rooms have everything you need, are cleaned very well, and with comfortable beds. The restaurants serve excellent food - I recommend especially the new Italian speciality restaurant. There are 3 other speciality restaurants to book (at no extra cost) all of which offer excellent food. There's a new infinity swimming pool... More

We had been here 2 years ago and now it was busier with the building of the new blocks though not in the adults only area which I would highly recommend. Lots of space, no problems with getting a sunbed and the staff in the bar were super, as were all of the staff throughout the hotel. The animation team... More

I find some of the comments on Trip Advisor about this hotel unbelievable, like they stayed at a different resort. We returned two days ago after a 7 night stay. The place is spotless and clean, so many cleaners, washing floors, clearing tables etc - the only place where there was a very small amount of litter was on the... More

Don't listen to any negative comments regarding the staff at this hotel. I came away feeling very sad to be leaving such a beautiful and joyful place - this was due to the staff 100%. They can't do enough for you, and are so thankful for you being there that all they want to do is please you. They're forever... More

We have just returned from a week's stay. I was worried before I went as there were some horrendous reviews. However there was no need - I'm not sure where these people stayed but it wasn't the hotel I stayed at. What people need to remember is how much they are paying - this is not a 5 star hotel... More

We just returned froma 2wk stay at the Riu Touareg. It was our first stay at this hotel, previously the Riu Karumboa. We found this hotel cleaner. The food was good although there was not much variety from day to day, so after 2wks it got a bit boring. Our room was cleaned every day, with fresh towels and bedding.... More
