The Riu Papayas rolls out a shedload of activities for all the family, and tops things off with extras like a free beach shuttle bus.

The horseshoe-shaped hotel looks out onto a tropical-themed pool area. Admire the views from your room, from inside or out, on your own balcony.

Please Note

While you're away, you can speak to us anytime - we're available 24/7 via the TUI App, phone, SMS and email. The easy-to-use TUI App is also packed with info and tips. It sends you important updates, like your airport transfer times, too.

Pools

The pool is a big draw here – it’s a big kidney-shaped number bordered by palms and loungers. Children have a shallow pool with waterslides to splash around in, too.

Food & Drink

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.

Entertainment

After dark, you can pick between an evening of live music at the hotel and a night out in the Kasbah Centre – 10 minutes’ walk away. Here, you’ll find bars, restaurants and huge clubs like Pacha.

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. Or, you can grab the free shuttle to the beach. Come evening, there’s a buffet restaurant, two themed eateries and a terrace for watching live music.
