The Hotel seemed a base for Stag/Hen groups, very noisy especially the dining room, unfortunately most of the guests had no idea how to queue for the Buffet. I would definitely not recommend this Hotel for anyone seeking a peaceful vacation !

Naughty naughty Expedia! Arrived at 1.30am after a delayed flight to be told we weren’t staying at the RIU Festival we were now being moved to another hotel as Expedia had overbooked the Hotel Rooms!! Wasn’t a very happy bunny! 😠 Moved to a different hotel which in future I will book directly as I just don’t trust the booking system Expedia has now!

Hotel is half board ie. comes inclusive of buffet breakfast and dinner - only drinks needs to be paid for separately. The restaurant is extremely well run with good food, great variety of food in the buffet and fantastic service from the staff. They even prepared cold dinner platters for guests who check-in after the dinner service, which was very thoughtful as my flight was delayed and I arrived hungry. Overall I found our stay very worth it and would highly recommend.

The staff where fabulous, the hotel was very clean and tidy, the food was excellent and the entertainment entertaining. My only criticism was the smoking areas, the one by the pool spoils the air swimming and relaxing in that area, the area at the main front door meant that you continually stepped out into someone smoke pollution which created a bad impression as you arrived, it also tended to drift into the reception area.

Fantastic hotel. Excellent location, 5 mins walk to beach and 3 mins walk from bus stop to get bus to Palma or airport. Staff friendly and helpful. Food very good and plenty of choice. The whole area of El Arenal seems to be full of Germans but that didn’t bother us - the staff at hotel and in nearby bars all spoke good English.
