We stayed at Playa Blanca during Christmas 2013. The staff were amazing, taking on several roles to serve the guests and make sure their needs were met. Sometimes I wondered how they could stretch themselves so much, yet be energetic and engaged. The Christmas buffet was amazing, and daily buffets had ample selection to satisfy your hunger. Pools were great,... More

The hotel was beautiful, but the beach was the worst I've ever seen in my life. The food was terrible and the entertainment was pitiful. I was victimized by the housekeeper. They stole a lot of my belongings. When I reported the manager just made excuses. There were several guest making reports of thief from their rooms. I would not... More

Pool was out of service. Road/entrance needs to be cleaned up and updated. Horses are allowed on the beach and no one cleans up after them. Security on scene does not allowed residence owners of the condo to walk on the beach. This makes absolutely no sense.

The bad... 1- The views- beach/ocean is not the same as advertised, meaning, in order to have the view you have to stay at the apartments which is a walk from the resort itself(where you'll probably stay). The view from the resort it depends on which building you're staying in.. But you'll hardly get an ocean view, the view you'll... More

Once they finished they looked after us and assigned our rooms, I asked for the... More

The food, Service, the staff are all top notch in my opinion. If you are looking for 5* rooms and food then pay for a 5* resort, but can tell you form experience... More

And - Playa BLANCA should be named Playa NEGRA since the sand is dark. Next- Although everyone says that the airport is 1 1/2 - 2 hrs from the airport, that is ONLY true for the... More
