Just got bk last night was brilliant. The bungalows are basic but very very clean. They were a good size and self catering facilities which were a bonus as we wasn't expecting that. Plenty of wardrobe space ect. The food was ok as I am quite a fussy eater, my partner loved it and loved trying different things. My partner... More

On arrival check in was straight forward our bungalow was ready and a bottle of wine waiting for us. Plenty of space , wardrobes draws for your clothes the bungalows are all keyed for... More

We really enjoyed this holiday,, there was very little to complain about, reception could only be reached by steep steps, but the bungalow was very private and comfortable, a nice relaxed atmosphere, there was plenty of food and if you didn't like various dishes choice was good, salad lunches were enjoyable, but the synthetic cheese every day we didn't like....

We stayed here most of January until 8th February this year,and can only praise the hotel for making us very comfortable during our 5 week stay.Although the bungalows are a bit dated and could do with refurbishing as other guests have already mentioned we found the food exceptional (plenty of choice) .the drinks were varied and plentiful as we were...

Read lots of the reviews about this hotel before we went but many of the really poor ones appear to me to be greatly exaggerated. This hotel was certainly constructed some time ago and the furnishings are dated and some of them are chipped etc. If you intend to go here and stay in your room all day I can... More

Its not a five star place nor does it try to be! We found the food to be fine- plenty of it (they are catering for large amounts and all inclusive) staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms a little tired but spotless and as you are all inclusive then there is no need to cook or really use them that... More

It had a big patio area with table and chairs. The beds and sofa beds were comfortable enough and we all slept well. The... More

Just back from a week here at the HL Rio Playa Blanca in Lanzarote. What a hidden treasure this hotel is. The staff were helpful, particularly the chambermaids and the hotel itself was sparklingly clean. The fresh flowers in the rooms and toilets were such a nice touch. The food was superb, freshly cooked and plenty of it. The all... More
