We stayed at the Riu Club Hotel for 3 nights, and have to say its one of the best Hotels I have ever stayed in which is a 24 hour all inclusive resort. From the moment we pulled up in the taxi until the moment we left we had a super amazing time there. The super friendly reception staff welcomed us to the hotel and gave us a room on the 3rd floor, and told us about the resort, and what to expect from this awesome hotel. unfortunately the room they gave us was overlooking the bar area so we asked to move so they gave us another room which overlooked the beautiful gardens on the 1st floor without hesitation. The room was stunning and so modern, with a beautiful modern bathroom, loved the picture in the bathroom and a super comfy bed!!! Loved the balcony where the sun use to hit every evening, so it was perfect to just sit and chill with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down! Wifi is free for 90 minutes in the Lobby every day or you can purchase it for 5 euros a day or 15 euros for 4 days for fast and very reliable wifi throughout the whole hotel. The whole resort was absolutely superb and one of the best resorts I've seen! The pools were pretty awesome from the huge sectioned pool, Kids pool with its own aeroplane and dragon to the awesomeness of the Infinity pool with its Ocean Views all with loads of sun beds everywhere though be warned sun beds go real early! and we struggled getting one at 10am one morning, the pool is also served by two pool bars one is the cool liquid lounge which shuts at around 6pm and the other one is Purple lounge which is open until late where we spent a lovely evening watching the sunset, both bars have many cocktails, soft drinks and beers on tap and you can even pour youre own. There are around 3-4 restaurants all with there each style, Las Dunas is the main restaurant near the lobby which serves Breakfast Lunch and Dinner all with fantastic cruisine and so much to choose from, then theres Kaori which a fantastic Asian restaurant, plus theres Atlantico which serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner which has Greek and Canarian Food nights with awesome views of the Ocean. The whole dining experiences in this Hotel are superb and the food quality is 100% Then theres the great entertainment which they had on each night, theres the open air stage with a huge long cocktail bar, with loads of tables and chairs, there is also a indoor theatre with a different act on each night and then theres Bubbles which is the nightclub. The only thing this Hotel is lacking though is a shop where you can buy a newspaper or suncream from so i think they should about getting one. The Resort is in a awesome location with a gate near the pool which leads to the promenade to Maspalomas which is around a 10 minute walk. The staff of this resort make this place extra special too with a special mention to Katy for always seeing and checking to see if we was having a great time, they put on a lot of activities in the day for adults and kids and are always smiling and really cheerful. All in all an absolutely stunning Hotel-Resort and we can't wait to go back!
