The buffet restaurant serves up favourites from around the world. There’s also a themed buffet twice a week, a 24-hour snack bar and a pair of themed restaurants specialising in Spanish and Asian cuisine.

Sports & Activities

Volleyball and pool make it onto the activity list. Kids can make a beeline for the kids' pool with slides, while there's also a RiuArt studio and RiuFit programme to keep you going.

Little ones can get involved with pirate-themed days and Olympic-style pool games at the RiuLand kids’ club.

Facility Overview

You’ve got a huge pool and a kids' pool with slides here, alongside a bar and terrace. Out of the water, you’ll find a volleyball court, playground and RiuLand kids’ club.
