    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The rooms of Riu Calypso are spacious (333.55 feet²), well fitted out and nicely decorated by nice paintings trimming up the white walls, with lamps hung on the walls and tiled floor.

You should be aware that the entrance door is quite heavy and little adapted to aged people. The bathroom, clean and well decorated, includes bathtub with handle equipped by flexible shower, welcome products, a hair-dryer, a bidet and non separate toilets.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The Riu Calypso is a massive building paint in faded pink and spread out on 12 storeys built on a hilltop. Laying out in gradation, the building evokes a pyramid. The building houses 250 rooms, and is served by two elevators: a panoramic elevator and another original one evoking a a funicular or an aerial tramway! The waiting time is sometimes pretty long. The space in the front of the hotel includes a 2819 feet² pool of 1.42 feet in depth, bean shaped, where reigns a small island overhanged with its palm tree. Open from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM and heated in winter, it is embellished by floral grass and by a solarium offering beach chairs, sunshades, changing rooms and showers. The children are offered a small pool of 75.30 feet² and 15.5 inches in depth.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Riu Calypso offers a restaurant with an accommodation capacity of 225 guests offering international cuisine (with the well known Canarian papas served along with the Mojo sauce of local inspiration) served as buffet, with food prepared right in front of you. As most of the hotels in the Riu chain, dishes are varied and of good quality. You should try for instance the sole meuniere with capers, stir lamb or grilled poultry fillet. The tables are decorated with flowers, with a patio corner. Breakfast is served from 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM, is copious and delicious. The fresh fruit juices squeezed in front of you (kiwi, orange, strawberry, pineapple or banana, based on your desires) are a delight Dinner is served from 6:00 PM for the first service and at 8:00 PM for the second service. For lunch, you can restore at the pool snack bar that offers à la carte formulas from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. You can also try your preferred cocktails at the pool bar from 10:30 AM to 6:00 PM, then at the salon bar from 6:00 PM to 1:00 in the morning, animated by musicians.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    You will access the fine sandy beach with clear waters of Jandia by a small door deep down the garden, which opens with the magnetic key-card of your room. From here on, you will only need to cross over the sidewalk that runs along the beach. Showers and toilets are available free of charge, but there is no beach equipment available (beach chairs and sunshades are available 985 feet further on the left ). The pure ambience is more than heavenly! The beach is supervised from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

    To know

    Member of the Riu Spanish chain, the Riu Calypso, built in 1990, was completely renovated in 2001. This is a calm establishment, little adapted for families. There is no mini-club (just one playing area) nor animations and the radio and balloons games are prohibited, which guarantees a great tranquility around the pool. A wellness and a beauty centre welcomes you for a moment of relaxation with programs for: massage, physical therapy and beauty salon. At the salon bar, there are gaming tables and their carpets for bridge players or other card games.

    Lodging advice:

    The people with disabilities are offered 5 rooms specially adapted for their condition. To get to different rooms located deep down the hallway, you will walk climbing up, which is not really practical when carrying the luggage. Most of the rooms offer a stunning view of the sea and the Jandia beach: you will miss something if you do not take advantage of it.
