First of all, we stayed at Playa Blanca from January 1st to January 8th. We were a group of 6 people in their 20's. We really enjoyed the hotel, the only problem was Sunwing! Too bad it's a Sunwing Club, it's a very nice place. We left from Montreal at 11:35, while we were supposed to leave at 9:00.. Not...

Just returned from Playa Blanca and had the best time. The food was outstanding and the service was very friendly. The staff really go out of their way to serve you and to try to speak English. Christmas Eve and New Years Eve were unbelievable!!!!! I had read many reviews about Playa Blanca and was surprised by the negative ones....

We stayed at the Playa Blanca for one week on Dec. 25, 06. The package was an all inclusive with Sunwing. When we arrived at the airport, we drove 2 hours to the hotel. We were checked in, and taken to a late dinner (it was after 11 pm). The first problem we had that we asked for two queens...

I stayed at this hotel late November. The following is a summary of my experience at this hotel, from positive to 'needs improvement'. What I liked: - Weather! (nice and hot with great humidity). - Warm ocean. - Fantastic staff (if you are worried about their lack of English, then take Spanish lessons or don't travel to Latin America). -...

My boyfriend and I travelled for the first time to Panama Nov 27 for a one week stay at the Play Blanca -- we couldn't get a lot of information about the hotel on trip advisor but the small amount we did get supported what we felt in the final analysis. This is a wonderful hotel and the staff are...
