I week break. Excellent apartment. Premium Tropical Island location. Recommended. Well worth the additional cost-not very expensive. Newly refurbished apartment and adjacent to a very private heated outdoor pool. Only downside was the daily delay at reception due to inadequate staffing. Even requesting a taxi could take 20 minutes due to people checking in. Large resort motor free. Great!

This is a complex of apartments. Low density of apartments in an attractive large site; nice trees and plants and many swimming pools.Several small two storey blocks. We hired a 'junior suite' on a self catering basis and did not eat in Tropical Island restaurants at all. Staff very friendly. Approx 13 mins walk to centre of Playa Blanca. Less... More

My wife and I have just returned from a week's break self catering at Tropical Island. Sometimes when I read the reviews I wonder if I have stayed at the same place! The site is large and very well maintained and cleaned. Yes the rooms are basic but as this is a 3* you get what you pay for. We... More

The fridge had nail varnish spilt inside,the pillows were smelly and hairs in the bed. After complaining we were transferred... More

Where do you want me to start? Granted this was a late deal, but should that make a difference? Fortunately, we hired a car for our 4 day break. Had we been restricted to the hotel, we would have left after the first night. Let me tell you more. We arrived last Tuesday evening after a pretty awful experience with... More

We spent 2 weeks a/i and found the dining room at beakfast time was not at all a pleasant experience. Tables are pushed too close together in order to get more people in. You have to queue half way up the stairs at times to get a table. On a couple of mornings there were no cups and we had... More

Best thing we did we had a private pool as per the pictures and the rooms had coffee makers, dressing gowns and slippers. The food in the restaurant caters for everyone and the food is excellent for all... More

We stayed here ( room 332-no balcony, and no sun in afternoon, and above the bar!)...this was a last minute weeks holiday on self catering basis. We paid nearly 100 euros for 7 days breakfasts for two. Breakfast wasn't too bad, juice not very nice, tea from machine, limited choice of cereal, toaster very slow, I think it was used... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were friendly, the reps were great, the food was excellent and the facilities were good. There was plenty of entertainment on in the evenings. Only a 10 min walk to the beach and bars. Our only issue was that there were quite a few 'chavvy' families also staying there that had no... More
