Guests come back to this hotel year after year. It’s not hard to see why, with a beachfront location and great pool.
This place is hard to beat on location. Turn right out of the gate and you’ll hit Meloneras promenade. Turn left out of the hotel and you’re right on Maspalomas’ sandy beach.
There’s a big outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and a first-class spa. To top things off, the hotel is surrounded by acres of gardens with palm trees.

The Riu palace Oasis is a really beautiful hotel although a little dated we were there for only a week and wanted a relaxing holiday after having the grandchildren for a week, the staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much, we had a garden room with its own patio and sunbeds which was superb, now to get down to the negatives and there are some, firstly the food is not great not awful but could be a lot better,breakfast is fine same as anywhere else, it's the evening meal that was poor very repetitive ok if you like Pork, the Krystal restaurant also very poor we ordered veal and we got a great big piece of very tough beef a big let down If you have ever been to Riu Palaces in other parts of the world then this will be a let down but I was told " well it is Spain " well if this is the case don't call it a palace, we were at the Riu Club just along the road last year and it was a better hotel although more expensive the drinks for me were fine but if you are a gin drinker then no they only have the cheaper yellow label Gordon's not very good. If the management sort out the food "and some of it was not cooked properly" get more international drinks expected for a Palace then this could be a very good hotel, although more suited to the older fraternityMore
We decided to spend 2,weeks in Maspalomas, and change hotels for the second week. This hotel was our choice for the first week. And what a good choice, made really due to the good reviews on this page. Our first time here....and we had a really great week. The staff were terrific....always there to offer you a drink....and in my case (with poor mobility) a HAND! The atmosphere is really friendly, and there are delightful gardens, the best I've seen in a hotel.....more like a park! Attached to this is a bar and cafe area where the head waiter, a delightful man, automatically brings you your favourite beverage once he knows what it is! We never go for 'all inclusive ' but there is no other tariff available here ... but the food was very good indeed, and we weren't sorry...except, of course, we ate too much! We will certainly be returningMore
Great Hotel and Location
Not much to look at from the outside but very good inside. Great staff, spotlessly clean inside, good variety of food, something for everyone. No queuing for drinks as waiter service in restaurant and outside areas. Huge lawned gardens set amongst trees with sun beds dotted about, though we could always get a seat round the pool with no problem. Back gate leads straight down to beach. Plenty of bars outside if you fancy leaving hotel. Went for a walk every night after meal and always felt safe. Lovely area full of designer shops and bars. Music as you would expect, though they had a fantanstic group playing outside near swimming pool the last Sunday night we were there. Mostly older people though some younger, not really for children, would make a great adult only hotel. Hope to go back again later this year or next.More
Travelling with my wife and 10 year old son this was our first ever visit to Gran Canaria and the resort of Maspalomas. After reading promising reviews on TripAdvisor we decided on the Riu Palace Oasis for our 10 day all inclusive trip.Right from the very start, it is obvious that every member of staff are out to make your stay the best it can ever be, as they are incredibly attentive and friendly. Waiters are always on hand to ensure that you are never without a drink and at meal times they go a long way to make sure you have a very pleasurable dining experience. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is served as a self-service buffet and is of a high quality. Pork and fish make regular appearances but overall it provides a very good and tasty variety. The restaurant management ask that you dress appropriately for meal times and especially at dinnertime, men are required to wear trousers. If you wear shorts then you will be turned away. Some poor guy got turned away on his first night and returned wearing a pair of dungarees which he had to wear every night. Although the truly sad thing about this situation, was what was a man in his forties doing owning a pair of dungarees? Interestingly, the rules on what the women were allowed to wear at dinner time were quite slack and it appeared that they were able to wear what they liked, which included outfits worn straight from the beach and pool. One rule for men, one rule for women it appears. For beach lovers the Riu Palace Oasis is perfect. Step out of the back garden door and within a few metres your feet are touching golden soft sand, with the impressive sand dunes only a few minutes walk away. The pool is a slightly more busy affair and although the hotel policy states that you cannot reserve sunbeds, it is not enforced and almost every bed has a towel laid over it before 8am! Considering the size of the hotel, the pool is quite small. Children are generally seen battling for space in between the attacking swarms of 1mph breaststrokers. Other than a few small play areas placed at the back of the hotel, there are no entertainment initiatives for children. If you do not like the beach or the pool, then the hotel has a beautiful garden which is considerable in size with sunbeds dotted around the lush grasses. This is a very clean hotel. Our rooms were cleaned and tidied every day, which showed the high standards Riu hotels expect and was very appreciated when we returned to our room at the end of the day. Although it has modern touches here and there, the hotel still felt very dated in places. A quick win to enhance its appearance would be to change the seat covers on the furniture around the hotel. I suspect these haven't been changed since the furniture was first purchased in 1979. One area of the hotel which appeared quite odd was the evening entertainments room. With low level lighting and dark red seating, it wasn't overly inviting. A resident band (again purchased in the late 70's) sang a number of old slow tempo songs and beckoned couples to 'come dancing'. Other entertainment included a Chinese circus act, a magician and a Beatles tribute band. I'm sure they were decent but it was very difficult to see anything going on. Again, considering the size of the hotel this room was also very small, so chances of getting a decent seat were low. If you got one of the outside seats then your view was blocked by large pillars running down the centre of the room. So much more could be done with this room if they just expanded it out a bit. Overall this is a very nice hotel indeed, with exceptional service, but it is designed for an older clientele and is not really for children at all. My son enjoyed himself but got bored very quickly, although when that happened he went hunting four the hotel's cats that roam the gardens. (Thank you Cats). Would we come here again? Yes, I think we would, even if it was to experience the service excellence of the staff and the delights of the buffet. They do amazing omelettes at breakfast by the way.More
Another excellent holiday here
This trip I was alone but confident of another warm welcome in excellent surroundings, with great food and great service. I was not disappointed; loved very minute. Have booked to return with my partner in June, as he missed out in March. Can't wait! More
