A complete renovation

This emblematic 5-star hotel by the beach has reopened following a thorough overhaul of all its facilities and now features redesigned outdoor areas, common areas and bedrooms. We have not left out a single detail! The bedrooms now boast the new RIU decor we are including in all our latest renovation and construction works. However, this is the same hotel that first opened its doors back in 2006 and retains all its majestic glory.

New cuisine

This reopening has brought with it a much wider range of services! In addition to enjoying RIU’s All-Inclusive 24-hour service you will also be able to order room service What a luxury! However, there’s more! The hotel now boasts a new Italian restaurant called ‘Il Portico’. All the former cuisine is still available, of course, but with a change of aesthetics: the main restaurant ‘Don Rafael’, the Japanese restaurant ‘Yashima’, the Mexican ‘Agave’ restaurant, the pool eatery ‘Chilis’, and the fusion food restaurant ‘Krystal’. To finish up, we simply must tell you about Pepe’s Food, where you will enjoy the Grill at the pool area.

This shakeup has also reached other parts of the hotel such as Lounge 24, the lobby bar, the pool bars and the theatre, which now boast a far more sophisticated look that is truly fitting of the Palace line of hotels. There is also a new addition: the new ‘Capuchino’ café and ice cream parlour.

Your rest and relaxation is so important to RIU
