The hotel opened its doors for the first time in 1985, in Playa del Inglés on the island of Gran Canaria, and it now offers its guests 24-hour all-inclusive service as well as new services and an elegant and sophisticated new design.

What's new?

All of the facilities have been modernized to align with the Riu Palace line. All the rooms have been completely renovated and the bathtubs replaced with showers.

In addition, an annexe building has been built in the garden, with 40 new rooms, to replace the old bungalows. In total, the hotel now has 274 rooms, close to Playa del Inglés beach. Close attention has been paid to accessibility for people with reduced mobility, with adapted rooms located on the ground floor, with garden views.

There is also a new fusion restaurant, “Krystal”. The hotel also offers a complete and refreshed selection of bars, with the elegant lobby bar, the lounge bar and the poolside bar, all of which have open terraces from which to enjoy the wonderful enclave where the hotel is located. The pool areas have also been completely renovated: the old pool has given way to two smaller ones that blend into the landscape of the outdoor areas. In addition, for the youngest members of the family, a new children’s pool with a play area has been added.
