It is our second visit at this hotel for duration of two years. The main reason we decided to stay at Riu Evrika was the additional security at every entrance of the complex. The hotel offers all inclusive service and the staff is very willing to please the customer but sometimes seems there is a bit of lack of training at the junior personnel level and they appear a bit pushy and not customer oriented. The beach price in included and having the beach bar is quite of convenience , as well as umbrella and chairs at the beach. The water was quite worm this year and clean. The Beach is great , quite clean. All rooms are maintained very clean and the overall pool area is being stripped clean with the water hose in the evening. The food is plent
Overall minor concerns. The food quality has definitely denigrated this year, while a lot of attention was given to the serving and the appearance of the salad. I had the tasteless carrot soup in my life ever. Salads were not well prepared, some canned food seems to be served as well. The Japanese sushi was falling apart and the tempura was not crispy at all. The pool guard was taking a nap on the job and the guard at the beach was resting facing the direction opposite at the sea ( meaning he was not watching ). This is a definite safety concern. During the rain it was hard to get to the food court without getting wet. The junior personnel requires some training , as our plates were often scooped before we were finished or the bus-girls/boys would wait at our side pushing that we take our last bite to pick up the plate. Every morning 7-10 bus-girls would stand at the door to greet us, which seems a huge waste of resources. The room was not ready for quite a wile after the regular check in time. The furniture around the pool need replacement.
