Great start of holiday with a glass of Champagne during the chech in process. Most of staff were really friendly, but you can feel that German are more appreciated than English speakers from other countries. Room is quite standard, cleaning is done really well. It was really nice that the anniversary day was observed stylishly. Half board was worth of...

Arrived at the Riu Palmeras and we were happy to be greeted so well with a glass of Champagne! The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. The pluses include fabulous sea view and balcony overlooking the pool area! Unfortunately being an older property it lacks certain expectations for a 4Star hotel 1. No coffee or tea in the room 2....

Our stay here was great. The staff are all so friendly especially Fran who was always so helpful. The food was excellent and always hot and freshly cooked. We had a great room 116 which had a really large balcony and sun beds , great for a change from the pool which was also great.

Is a good hotel with all the qualities that you need for having a good time on your vacation. The food was really good, except for breakfast that being good, could be improved. It was always clean and has a good location, near the beach. The pool is also really nice. The most negative point for me was that there...

Visited late February 2017 for one week. This hotel is listed as a four star hotel, and while it certainly delivers on certain areas as one would expect of a hotel of said rating, it definitely has a few shortcomings. Overall a very pleasant stay and good value. Upon arrival you are greeted by welcoming staff and offered champagne or...

I have long been a fan of the RIu Hotel chain but this is one I will not be returning to, nor would I recommend it for single travellers. First the good points. The Hotel is located just a short walk from the main promenade, beach and shops, plus the Yumbo Centre and bus stops are all within 100 yards....

We had a very nice star at Riu Palmeras. We had a bungalow for 2 adults, 1 child and a baby. The rooms were very quite and the terrace in front of the bungalow was ideal to play games or cards when the children were asleep. The bedroom had a air conditioning which worked really well.
