We arrived at the hotel around 10pm and were expecting to be greeted by a porter to help with our luggage but there was no porter. It was a bit of a struggle to get the luggage up the steps and it wasn't until the next morning that we saw a ramp. We were greeted by very pleasant staff who...

Just arrived home from the RIU Nautilus and have to say this hotel looked the best in the area. We had initially booked the Sol House Beach a few doors along and so glad I changed this at the last minute. We were upgraded to a top floor front room in the annex and the view was fantastic. Amusing to...

As with other posts we booked in February for October and 48hrs before our flight we were phoned to say there was no room available and we must go to the Belplaya. They were adamant despite my protests, so what are you to do having already checked in the flight online. It was very upsetting to receive this news and...

It's 3 years since we last stayed here and reviewed the hotel and to be honest not much has changed. Still a well run hotel which delivers on most fronts. We only stayed for 2nights at the end of our trip through Andalusia. If we had been staying longer I wouldn't have been so happy with the room which faced...

Had a phone call 2 days before due to travel to Nautilus, from booking centre. They stated hotel was overbooked and we had to transfer to hotel Riu Belplaya for one night. I was shocked to say the least and with only two days to go, it would be impossible to cancel and stay at another hotel. I protested very...

A little disappointed with our stay on a few counts. The extras we requested were not in the room, though I requested an upgraded room weeks prior to visit it was not available for a few days...we didn't bother. No tea facilities in the room, a charge of 18euros to rent a kettle, then told to raid the restaurant for...

HOTEL VALUE/ATMOSPHERE I would rate Riu Nautilus as Excellent value for a very good hotel. We got a late deal for a good price and were not disappointed. Very much enjoyed our stay. I would say, although there was a few niggles (I don't think you will find many 4 or even 5 stars without some niggles), on the whole...

Having stayed at this hotel some 15 years ago, we decided to go back for our 40th wedding anniversary. The hotel is very good with large, comfortable, well appointed rooms. Despite arriving late on a Friday night we were greeted by a glass of champagne and a cold platter which was most welcome after our long journey. The staff are...
