8/10 Very good

Really exceptional, but one deadly flaw
This hotel is gorgeous and well maintained. We were upgraded to a better room and every single staff member was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner were included in our half-board rate. Food was top notch, better than cruise ship quality. Great mix of Spanish, German, and UK choices. The challenge was not to eat too much. Bar and wine prices were very fair (great spanish house wine 11€/bottle or slightly less). I will definately stay at other Riu hotels in the future BUT NOT THIS ONE. THERE IS AN UNFORGIVABLE PROBLEM: guests should plan on NO wifi available on the property. Connections in the room were zero. In public areas, there are so many conflicting wifi repeaters that your device will skip from bad connection to bad connection trying to connect. I was forced to do a highly interactive Zoom via mobile phone connection greatly annoying my colleagues and running over my 10gb of EU data which incurred a 20€ overage. The front desk said there will be no solutions until the building is rewired. I tried to connect using Android, Apple and Chromebook products from many different locations. If you need data at all, stay elsewhere. If you don't need data, you will be totally delighted by this hotel.
