Having just arrived home from a week at this hotel! I felt I had to write a very truthful review to warn other holiday makers. First of all this hotel shouldn't be listed as a 4 star rating! I'd be being kind if I gave it a 2!! After being given keys to the wrong apartment twice we arrived at...

This is the 2nd year on the trot we have visited Playa Blanca and enjoyed our break , the resort is Fantastic Clean and Friendy, but this Hotel does not reflect any of this. It is at the most a 2 star complex. You have to clear your own tables at dinner they only have one member of staff behind...

The Wife and I stayed here for one week in October 2016. The hotel is excellent value for money. Our room was spotlessly clean and bright. The food is great. The walk into town is around 20 minutes, go along the footpath that runs along the coast, it's a lovely walk. Overall we had a great week.

We went out of season (Jan) however, the accommodation was excellent. Restaurant was extremely good, wide and varied choices, well prepared. Staff were friendly and helpful. Difficult to get a drink at pool bar during the day as staff jockey between bar and restaurant. This was frustrating. Out of hours snacks were second rate. Maybe due to time of year....

Yes the bathrooms are a little tired but everywhere was clean and towels and bedding were changed frequently. Cold pools...

Winter break... superb hotel, very clean, wonderful food. Lovely staff...who go the extra mile to make sure you have a great holiday. Our transfer did not pick us up and hotel manager took us personally to the airport free of charge. I love this place and can't wait to go back.
