Key Features

  • On the beach
  • 8 pools
  • 9 restaurants

The adults-only Riu Republica Hotel’s cosied up to an ice-white beach, and boasts a bumper line-up of restaurants. It's got a fiesty side, too, with pool parties and lively bars.

Introduction

The Riu Republica’s still fresh from the wrapping, so you can expect super-smart interiors throughout. The restaurants feature mood lighting and arty lampshades, while the ocean-themed rooms are jazzed up with starfish and shell prints.

5 Star

Location Information


• On Arena Gorda Beach
• Golf course nearby

This place is so close to the seafront, it’s practically got sand coming out of its ears. The pools play to a party tune, and there are plenty of bars that keep the drinks flowing.

Please Note

Holidays here come with our 24/7 Online and Hotel Rep Service.

Pools

Stroll through the grounds towards the seafront, and you’ll reach five pools on the cusp of the sand. There are a further three pools in the new part of the hotel, too. And thanks to a trio of swim-up bars, you can sip cocktails without getting out of the water.

Pool Scene

If lazing around by the pool isn't your style, you can turn up the volume at the party pool. There's also a new waterpark with four slides, including a multi-lane racer.

Food & Drink

International cuisine’s laid out in the main buffet restaurants. Seafood, pizza, salads and multi-coloured desserts are all in the spread, and there are themed evenings a few times a week.

You can take dinner up a notch at one of the à la carte eateries – the options include an American steakhouse, a Spanish restaurant and two Kulinariums, where you can tuck into gourmet dishes. You'll also find buffet joints that cover Asian fusion, Italian and Indian fare.

Entertainment

Live music and dance shows draw in the crowds after dark. Later, you can head to the onsite nightclub, which stays open until late, and is open six nights a week.

The hotel’s bars set you up for evening drinks. There are lounge and lobby options to pick from, and over in the sports bar, you can watch live matches over a game of table football.

Sports & Activities

On the watersports front, you can try snorkelling, sailing and windsurfing. You’ll also get a free introductory scuba diving lesson in the hotel pool.

Facility Overview

This hotel has eight pools, three of which have swim-up bars. You've also got a waterpark with slides. There are nine restaurants to pick from for dinner, plus a handful of bars. There’s also a disco room which stays open until late. Activities-wise, you’ve got watersports, daytime entertainment, evening shows and an onsite nightclub.

Join a beach volleyball game by the waterfront.

Health & Beauty

Relax in the steam bath at the spa, or pick from the likes of massages* on the treatment list. And if you fancy burning some calories, there's a gym on hand.
