The four pools are the stars of this big hotel. And there’s a sandy beach just across the road, too.
This vast, whitewashed hotel is home to a great pool scene – there are four within the palm-filled gardens. Plus Playa de los Pocillos’ sandy beach is just across the road.
Dining is big news here, with RIU World, Mexican and Asian food among your options. The Asian place gets plaudits for its sushi. And in the evenings, entertainment ranges from cabaret to live music.

Went for a week to this hotel. Very large complex. We stayed in the second part of the hotel which was absolutely fine for us as didn't mind the walk and it was lovely and quiet there. Hotel pools were icey cold, so hardly any one swimming in them. Entertainment team work very hard to please guests. Main restaurant was a bit of a few for all and very hectic as people can be so rude when getting their food and not considering others. Asian restaurant very good. Very good choice of drinks, lots of bubbley prossco. The room was very comfortable and staff very friendly. Over all great holiday.More
Lovely Holiday with very little to complain about.
This Hotel is in a very good location, being on a sandy beach and within a short distance from Shops, Restaurants and Bars. Because not in the centre it is a very quiet hotel. The army of staff kept the Pool and Garden areas spotless and seemed to be busy all the time. Rooms very comfortable and again spotless. Overall i would say that all the staff were very polite and hardworking. Food was plentiful and well cooked if a little short on imagination. Mealtimes always busy, however no trouble find a table. Overall no complaints from me. Drinks readily available from beer/wine and soft drink fountains on a help yourself basis. Spirits quickly served at the bar by excellent staff. Nothing ever too much trouble. This a large complex so finding your way around can be challenging. As others have pointed out this is a large complex made by combining two hotels. One side has very little in the way of facilities. My only criticism of this holiday is the horrendously hard bed and paper thin pillow. I didn't get a good nights kip for 10 nights. Sorry to have to point that out because everything else so good.More
Cannot fault this hotel everything was great if you go get a room on reception side heck of a walk over walkway and nothing much there only pool and snack bar shop gym and hairdressers all staff very pleasant and animation team work very hard shows excellent with either karaoke or a bit of dancing if duo is on I think they are on3or4 times a week and to finish the night a discore which is all inclusive till 2am only one criticism the restaurants are still self service the best is Asian but all OK thank you for a great holidayMore
Great hotel, on arrival we were greeted by Antonio on reception. Check in was a breeze. Cases taken to room, which was located in the main block on the ground floor as requested. Room had easy access to all amenities, this really helped as my husband has some mobility issues. Restaurant was busy, which was to be expected as the hotel was. Sometimes on entering you look and no tables, then one of the more than helpful staff fine you one. We ate at two of the specialty restaurants, the Asian was great, the lady who greeted us was so attentive to all the dinners. We had bubbly waiting as it was our anniversary. The food was good too. It would be better if it was not buffet service . You do tend to feel rushed. The Mexican was a whole different experience, our issues were dealt with swiftly and satisfactorily by the hotel manager. The Animacion team are brilliant, the day time and night time we either watched or joined in were great. The evening shows we saw were great, well done to all especially Sten-ley and Marie who were fantastic. The hotel is exceptionally clean, the rooms and terrace great, I would just say that storage in the bathroom could be better. Drinks were ok, although at a 4* I would of expected a better choice of cocktail and also for it to be made freshly. Overall this hotel did what it said in the brochure. Lots to do on Lanzarote. Great staff all round, would return.More
We have just returned from 10 days in this hotel which as expected from Riu is well run and managed and in a good location. The only problem with this hotel is that it was two hotels that have been combined together, which is not a problem apart from the bar and dining areas which really seem to struggle at times to cope with the number of people. The two separate pool areas are fine and you can always find sunbeds available at anytime of day. The pools however, even the so called heated ones, are cold and it seems the unheated ones may just as well be filled in and turned into gardens as no one ever goes into them. It is such a great pity that such lovely pools are unused as they are so very very cold. The food was fine and always something to that you could find nice to eat. The evening entertainment was very good and that it started at a reasonable time of 9.15pm, unlike some hotels that put on the entertainments shows so late. All in all a nice holiday, would I go back to this hotel??? not sureMore
