RIU has opened the doors to ClubHotel Riu Costa del Sol, the perfect place for a relaxing vacation in southern Malaga, Spain. This new hotel, with its privileged location on the maritime promenade of Torremolinos and just meters from the beach, is the result of a complete renovation and unification of the Riu Belplaya and Riu Costa Lago hotels. with a fresh and contemporary style in the 4-star category, new services are available such free WiFi throughout the hotel, and a 24-hour All Inclusive programme.
The new property houses 550 guests rooms, some of which are small 2-room suites featuring separate bedrooms and living areas. All have been fully renovated and festooned with new furnishings and decor in white and blue hues, designed to mesh with the adjacent sea. Surprisingly, standard rooms have more floor space than the suites, as though bedroom space has been sacrificed in order to incorporate the separate living area. Nevertheless, all accommodations are clean and comfortable, with newly renovated, spacious bathrooms that feature modern fixtures, tilework in natural tones, and glass walk-in showers. Rooms also feature satellite TV, air conditioning, a mini refrigerator and a balcony or terrace.
The new design of this property provides large open spaces in the form of gardens and terraces for taking advantage of the excellent climate of the Costa del Sol over a meal or cocktail. To ensure sufficient shade and further beautify the garden areas, RIU has planted dozens of new palm trees to join those already present on the grounds. It has four outdoor swimming pools and one heated indoor pool, in addition to a fun and enticing splash park for kids. The most spectacular of all is the beachfront main pool, with over 400 square metres, which is surrounded by an inviting solarium.
The hotel also has a wellness zone, with a gym, a Turkish bath and a spa offering various beauty and relaxation treatments. Guests can also enjoy a complete daytime programme of activities, a sports programme with RiuFit, and shows and live music at night.
At dinnertime, guests can choose the buffet with international dishes in Ajoblanco’, the main restaurant; Italian cuisine in ‘La Dolce Vita’; or Andalusian specialties in ‘María Sardina’. The ClubHotelRiu Costa del Sol also has five bars in different zones throughout the complex, from the lobby to the plaza and including the pool area and the theatre. The Sports Bar stands out for its novelty.
Torremolinos is a tourist destination where you will find everything you need to have a fantastic vacation. You can discover the best beaches, such as La Carihuela, Los Álamos and Playamar, go on excursions and hikes to natural points of interest or visit museums, cathedrals, the botanical garden, as well as take part in many other activities. As such, it’s no wonder Riu decided this should be the next property among their recent renovations.
