What to Expect at ClubHotel Riu – Costa del Sol

by GO GlobeHopper

Are you looking for the perfect place for a relaxing vacation in southern Malaga, Spain?  The beachfront resort is the result of a complete renovation and unification of the Riu Belplaya and Riu Costa Lago hotels.  So here’s what to expect at ClubHotel Riu Costa del Sol.

With a fresh and contemporary style in the 4-star category, services are available such as free WiFi throughout the hotel and a 24-hour All-Inclusive program.

The property houses 550 guest rooms, some of which are small 2-room suites featuring separate bedrooms and living areas. All were fully renovated in 2017 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 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 design of this property provides large open spaces in the form of gardens and terraces for taking advantage of the excellent climate of Costa del Sol over a meal or cocktail. To ensure sufficient shade and further beautify the garden areas, RIU has planted dozens of palm trees.

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 meters, 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 program of activities, a sports program 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.
