Another return visit!
Love this hotel. The whole experience is wonderful. I have visited many times and find each trip as wonderful as the last one. The food establishments have great food, and you have a choice of going to a high class restaurant, or visiting the buffet, with its amazing variety of food. The staff is friendly, efficient and helpful.The rooms are very clean and the Jr suites are large. There are a few family rooms available, as well as wonderful suites with an outside personal spa. This remains one of the nicest hotels I have visited.
A fantastic holiday, fabulous hotel, friendly staff.
We have just come back from a 14 day trip at the Rui Palace Pacifico. We just wanted to say thank you to all the staff who made the trip very special. We can’t fault your hotel the cleanliness, delicious food (especially the seafood). You really couldn’t ask for anything more. Special mention to José Luis who kept the drinks flowing all day on the beach. If you want to buy jewellery go down to the beach and find Rudy he will look after you and do you a deal. His friend Samuel will book any trips for you a lot cheaper than anywhere else. The hotel manager is a great guy too who finds the time to speak to the guests. we will never forget our fantastic holiday. The best time of the day is at 3 o’clock when everyone gathers in the pool bar it’s the most amazing atmosphere.
Family holiday with daughters, son in laws and grandchildren. The hotel, location, facilities and staff were superb, any minor problems were rectified immediately and without question. Junior suites are spacious, comfortable and well serviced by housekeeping staff. We ate in both self service and a la carte restaurants, The variety and quality of the food was exceptional as was the choice of wines and other drinks served. Transport to surounding areas was safe and affordable from the hotel. Highly recommended for both couples and families
Just want to unpack
We arrived 24 hrs ago. For a 14 night stay here. Our view from our room is a building construction site. We asked reception to move us. The hotel is not full. We offerred to pay for upgrade. We just want a room we can sit on our balcony. Come back tomorrow they said. So we have. Handing our key in at 9.30am. So we are still sitting in reception awaiting a room. Come back at 1pm they said. We came back at 2.30. No room. Plenty of others checking in. Beware if ur not a platinum guest, which altho weve been to many Riu weve never registered for. They couldnt care less weve been travelling for 2 days an cant unpack as we dont want a room that is opposite a construction site. So just sitting here waiting
