Luxury vibe

RIU hotels envelop you in a luxury you’ll never want to leave. Each elegant hotel is set in lush, green gardens and centred round seriously impressive swimming pools. Outstanding service comes as standard here, and staff go the extra mile to ensure every last detail is taken care of, all you have to do is sit back and relax on a super-comfy sunlounger, whilst waiters serve you ice cold refreshments.

Rooms are contemporary and spacious, with modern amenities and in some cases even your own wall-mounted liquor dispenser! If you’re celebrating a special occasion, you can opt for a Suite or hot tub room for that extra memorable touch.

Spectacular beachfront setting

When it comes to location, RIU hotels can’t be beaten. All resorts have a prime sunbathing spot on sandy shores, and you’ll never be further than a few flip-flops from the warm water’s edge. The hotel’s own stretches of private beach means you’ll be able to bag yourself a sunlounger on safe, clean and uncrowded sands. RIU hotels are situated in some of the most beautiful places in the world – you can sit back and admire the spectacularly breath-taking surroundings, completely undisturbed.

Most hotels have watersport equipment for rent, so when you need to cool off you can take to the waves on a kayaking adventure, test your windsurfing skills, or grab a snorkel and explore the underwater world.

Indulge in All Inclusive

At RIU hotels All Inclusive comes as standard, you can tempt yourself by that extra dessert, treat yourself to a colourful cocktail or say yes to the kids’ pleas for ice cream without worrying about your holiday spending fund. The extensive buffet restaurant, beautifully decorated with intricate fruit carvings, has more choice than you could possible sample, and regular themed nights throughout the week mix things up a bit to keep the cuisine interesting.

If that doesn’t tantalise your taste buds, each RIU hotel has at least one speciality a la carte restaurant – such as Italian, Asian or Mexican – where talented chefs cook up exquisite dishes from around the world. And best of all they’re free, you simply need to make a reservation.

RIULand kids’ club

This fabulous children’s facility is jam-packed full of fun for children aged 4 to 12. The programme has been specially designed with fun in mind, and is split into two age groups – ages 4 to 7 and 8 to 12. Activities are tailored to each age group so children get the biggest reward from the activities they do. Kids can enjoy splashing around in the pool, a whole load of games, plus exciting theme days such as Pirates and the Olympic Games.
