          They're due to complete on the 14th July. It may be worth going on the Riu website and emailing them directly, to see if they're still on schedule.

          I see that this hotel will be closed for renovations until July 14. We will be arriving there on the 16th. I'm concerned that this will negatively impact our visit if the renovations are not complete or if things are not up and running.
