The Playa Del Ingles beach is a little over 1.5km away and you can catch a bus to and from the hotel at no cost. The resort centre is 500m away whilst the shopping centres are just 400 metres down the road. Transfer time from the airport is approximately 25 minutes.

Riu Papayas Hotel Reviews

Customer Rating 3 / 5 from 1 Customer Review

Holiday Date:6th Aug 2013
Accommodation:Riu Papayas Hotel
Room:Double Or Twin
Board:Half Board
(3 suns)

The hotel was very clean yet very dated, the food was good although like all buffet style food can be repetitive, the pool area was clean and plenty of sunbeds at all times of the day. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly.

Here comes the buts: the hotel is shared with the neighbouring Flamingo and as such the dining room is not big enough, we experienced many difficult moments when couples had to share tables to dine (you are allocated a table for evening meals for the whole week) thankfully we were a family of 3 and did not have to share as I would have hated it! Once you check out of your room at midday you are no longer a guest and are made to feel unwelcome, not allowed to use pool towels, not allowed to sit at pool bar unless making an order. The uncaring hotel manager and strange rules did put a damper on our otherwise good holiday.
