In addition, four of these hotels have received a Best of the Best award, which identifies the best hotels in the top 1% of establishments listed on the digital platform.

This award recognises establishments that constantly get excellent reviews and maintain their rating between 4 and 5 over a 12-month period. The digital platform uses a patented algorithm to assess the quality, quantity and relevance of reviews and opinions submitted by users over a 12-month period, as well as the popularity index of the destination. In this way, users can share their experiences and review their stay as a guide for future customers.

This award recognises the efforts made by the staff of RIU hotels on a daily basis to offer a great service, always focusing on customer satisfaction.
