Our holiday was ok and our children enjoyed it (which is the main thing) but I would not recommend this hotel. As a family of 5 it cost us an absolute fortune for 1 week here in August, if it had been 4* the price may be justified but I feel a big hole in my pocket now. The entertainment... More

Mixed reviews on Trip Advisor but thought I'd try it and I'm glad I did and we went as 2 families with young teenagers. The check in was quick and food was being served till 21.30 so managed to get something to eat and it was tasty. The Bungalow rooms are spacious, bedroom, built in wardrobes, drawers, dressing table, bathroom... More

It is a shame to give this hotel such a low rating as it could be a lot better with very little effort. This was not our hotel of choice - it was a replacement hotel. A lot of reviews mentioned the water park. This is not attached to the hotel grounds but is attached to the sister hotel paradise... More

Stayed at the HL end of June and beginning of July and was disappointed with the 4star label. At best this is a 2 and a half or 3 start hotel. The appartments are very dated with furniture at least 20 years old by the looks of it. Bathroom had grout missing in many areas and cobwebs and had seen... More

First thing i thought when we pulled up to Rio Playa Blanca was, 'look how beautiful the area is and how popular it must be as several families had came off the same time. My family were relieved when they said the food is still available even at quarter to eleven!. After a 4 hour flight, we needed some food.... More

Ok. So I am currently at this hotel, lying next to the pool on surprisingly enough a sun bed. What can I say..... Firstly, awesome place. Friendly, polite, entertaining, great food and exceptionally clean. Thank you RPB for this. However Secondly, not enough sunbeds. If you haven't reserved one by 0800 you won't have one. Now I despise those holiday... More

This was our first two week, all inclusive holiday abroad with two children aged 9 and 12 so we were keen for it to be successful. I read the negative reviews on here and felt rather sick.
