General Information about Riu Hotels & Resorts:
Founded in 1953, Riu Hotels & Resorts has grown from a small family business into an international chain of good quality Riu package holiday resort hotels, now with more than 100 hotels in 17 countries (including Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic & more). Riu Hotels & Resorts is a Spanish chain based in Palma de Mallorca where the chain's first established resort hotel, the Riu San Francisco, is located. Since the establishment of the first Riu resort hotel in 1953, Riu Hotels & Resorts has enjoyed steady growth and international expansion, becoming very popular in the 90s.
Riu Hotels & Resorts is a pioneer in the all-inclusive package holiday resort hotel chain market, offering a consistent package holiday experience based on aesthetic consistency and standards of service – a standardized look for all Riu hotels and rooms. Riu resort hotels are known for their unique, colonial-style architecture with Moorish influence. Riu offers a reliably good product, market tested over time, that is consistently well-received by tourist clientele. Riu resort hotel properties are typically horseshoe-shaped, with relatively limited grounds featuring well-manicured open spaces at the centre of the property, and a main pool area that is surrounded by public rooms and facilities. Riu resort hotels generally cater to families, providing a children's pool in addition to the main pool at most resorts – an attractive feature for holiday travellers with small children.
Delight Your Senses with an All-Inclusive Riu Hotels & Resorts Vacation Package
Riu product line is separated into two primary categories – Club, and Palace. Despite some variance in the quality of their product, with the Palace category of hotel resorts generally providing guests with a premium holiday package experience at a premium price, Riu offers good 4-star quality across the board. Riu Hotels & Resorts offer the stay at one, play at all option, allowing all-inclusive Riu guests to take advantage of guest facilities at most of the Riu hotels, with the exception of a la carte restaurants. All-inclusive Riu resort hotel guests are only permitted to make dining reservations at a la carte restaurants within the hotel where they are staying, and reservation policies may vary at the Club properties. Palace properties are generally more upscale, offering more deluxe accommodations that include better appointed guest rooms, more opulent public spaces, and greater overall "wow" factor. Buffet dining at all Riu resorts is generally good, but the a la carte dining is typically superior at Riu's Palace resort hotels. Liquor dispensers are included in guest rooms, and room fridges are usually restocked daily. In general, Riu resort hotels offer good service and a positive holiday experience that has made the Riu chain of resorts a leader in the all-inclusive package holiday market.
Riu resort hotels feature many of the activities that tourists have come to expect, but activities are scaled back in comparison to other resort hotels in similar sun travel destinations. Riu resort hotel guests can expect nightly entertainment in the evenings, typical of most big all-inclusive resort hotel chains. Guests at Riu resort hotels can count on good rooms, decent food, a good quality beach, and well-designed pool area. In general, Riu Hotels & Resorts feature some of the best beaches the world has to offer, and are a great option for beach lovers.
Riu Hotels & Resorts offer wedding packages for those who wish to fulfill their desire for a dream wedding in the sun. Wedding holiday packages come in a variety of configurations to suit all needs – civil wedding, religious wedding, or vow renewal – and Riu resort hotel staff are happy to make all necessary arrangements to satisfy unique requests.
