Riu perfection

Reviewed 4 november, 2022

This is the 5th or 6th I'm I have stayed at the same resort, always excellent even at the end of the season, they can't do enough for you and always willing to accommodate your needs. Clearly booking in January for another trip.

Lovely holiday

Reviewed 4 november, 2022

Me and my husband went for a week away to the hotel Rui Chiclana we were pleasantly surprised the staff were so friendly, the room was superb and the food was scrumptious. We were lucky with the weather it was between 25-28 degrees our first day we had some light showers but after that it was really nice. We arrived on the 21st Oct and returned on the 28th. Will definitely go back again.

Great hotel - almost 5/5!

Reviewed 25 october, 2022

We have just got back from a week stay at the Riu Chiclana, and we were very impressed. It is almost worth of 5/5, however there were just a couple of things that stopped me rating this full marks. We arrived on a Friday, which we were told was a Spanish Bank Holiday, so the hotel was very full on Friday and Saturday, this was not a problem overall, but the main restaurant was super busy and chaotic at times, and items weren't topped up often enough, such as orange juice was empty regularly. However after Sunday a lot of the Spanish guests had left and the hotel was much quieter and less chaotic. Check in - the queue was large when we arrived, but it goes down quickly, the reception staff told us they were checking in 495+ guests that day. Special mention about Sonia, she was very friendly and accommodating. It was a friends birthday whilst we were staying and she helped us arrange a cake to be bought in, which was delicious and a very reasonable price. Food - We were disappointed that the "bookable" restaurants only seem to open at the weekend, meaning we had to eat at the main restaurant more often than we would have liked, as the "bookable" restaurants were much quieter and had a lovely atmosphere. Food was all pretty much the same in all restaurants so can't complain about food at all. lots of choice, well cooked and tasty. Drinks - Self-serve stations dotted around the grounds, ok if you want a beer, wine, soft drink, coffee, juice etc - our fave was the Lemon Beer - lovely and refreshing. If you wanted a cocktail or something different you had to go to one of the 3/4 bars that were around the hotel - one poolside (Liquid Bar), one at the reception area (Lounge 24), one at the theatre, or one at the downstairs restaurant area (but that closed after the weekend when we were there). Limited cocktail menu, but we made our own up and the bar staff accommodated our drinks requests! Rooms - We were a big-ish group (6 rooms in total) and requested we were located together, the hotel did put us altogether which was great. We had a 2 bedroom family "bungalow" room, the rest of our group had the 1 bedroom apartments in a block. The only negative about our 2 bedroom was that this didn't have any tea/coffee making facilities, whereas the apartments did have. Not sure why and we didn't ask as I had bought ours with us anyway. Worth noting though if you can't function without a cuppa first thing! We all had visitors in the form of little ants in our rooms, mainly in the bathrooms, but they didn't bother us at all, and there was only a handful at a time, its really not an issue - your are surrounded by lush green grass...you're bound to have some insects around! One day there was a little grass snake on our friends terrace - that was a bit freaky! Our Air-conditioning wasn't working, however I reported it on the RIU app, and the same day it was fixed. Rooms are ok, beds are comfy, plenty of storage, just could do with a lick of paint/update - such as re-grouting of the bathrooms - but nothing that affects the quality of the room or our stay. Pools - There are numerous pool around, we stuck to the low pool near the beach access gate, as this pool was slightly warmer than all the others, and had a family vibe feel to it. Some of the other pools were quieter, and one pool was used for activities such as aqua aerobics etc. We only had a problem on 1 day getting sun loungers and that was the Saturday when all the local Spanish guests were around. The rest of the week the pool sides felt quite empty. The only thing we felt was missing was something for older children - it was great to have the splash zone/park for the under 10's. but the older kids would have like a water slide or something. Beach - You can access the path to the beach via a gate next to the low pool. A short walk and about 80 steps down to a lovely sandy beach. There was one day when the red flags were out meaning you couldn't swim (the waves were huge to be fair) but on other days we were able to swim. Just a note that a few people, including one of our party, was "stung" by a fish (maybe a weaver fish - left a spike in the foot), and the lifeguards/coastguards came to our assistance with warm water to take the sting away. Other people came to tell us it had happened to them also. Nothing major - but you might be best wearing beach shoes in the water. Great to watch the sun set on the horizon. Entertainment - we didn't take part in any daytime activities, but they do have fitness, games etc each day. The evenings we tended to go the the theatre area after dinner - so were too late to see any of the early evening kids entertainment (like kids discos etc), but we saw some of the shows, and some live singers and musicians were great. We felt like they could have had some after show music - not a full on disco - but some lights and music or something would have been good for those of us who like to stay up past 11pm. General - the hotel and grounds were well maintained, and very clean. My only comment is that there seemed not to be any ashtrays around for people that smoked, so people were flicking their ash and butts onto the floor - and when you have kids around that is not very pleasant. They did clean the floors each day, but they started to look very dirty by the end of the nights. Staff - all the staff we met were super friendly, Sonia at reception and Leo from the show team were both great, but everyone including the maintenance and cleaning staff we very smiley and friendly - unlike some of the Spanish guests who could be quite rude esp when it came to meal times, barging their way clearly not used to queuing! Airport transfer was about 50 mins - the coach was unbearably hot both ways but was easy. Jerez airport is very small, and they have a strange passport control for us UK citizens for passport stamping, once you get passed security checks - beware it takes a while to get through and once you get in the gate you can't leave! There is a toilet and a vending machine but that's it. Would we go back - yes most definitely - but would probably choose to go in June or September next time, as we had a couple of cooler days, and there is not much to do in these places if the weather turns bad.

Enjoyable trip

Reviewed 18 october, 2022

We came at the end of September for a week break as a couple. Whilst we would usually go for an adults only hotel, it was still an enjoyable trip. The good -We booked this through Tui and there is a very helpful Tui rep on site. -There is a beautiful beach just outside the hotel. -Plenty of food and drink. Little sections for drinks, 24 hour bar -Cleaners were very good. - plenty of sun-beds across the hotel - not far from the airport The points to note When we arrived on the Friday the hotel wasn’t at full capacity but had around 1800 people and by Sunday 800 left which gave the hotel an entirely different feel. With those extra people the restaurants were just chaos but we were very good at trying to find the quietest spot. I can imagine that at full capacity though it would be pure chaos - would be good to have one extra adult only pool. - entertainment was a bit rubbish to be honest - although there are different restaurants, it is all just buffet style food. There’s not a huge variation across the restaurant but the Italian one was our favourite (quieter too) Overall - still enjoyable and for the price we could not complain at all.

A lovely clean, pretty hotel next to the most beautiful beach. Good food aswell. Maybe not enough background music in the 24hr bar, and not enough live music. But i am just finding the smallest complaint if any.
