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

We stayed here 22/10/2014 for 7 nights, 2 adults 1 teenager and a 3 year old. We stayed in a one bedroom bungalow which was spacious and clean and had good size rooms and kitchen area. 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

We stayed here over the New Year and can't fault it. Food was varied, cooked fresh and lovely everyday. We didn't have one bad meal at the hotel. They pulled out all the stops NYE and was a fabulous meal that night. Kids club was on everyday which kept our kids occupied as the weather wasn't great. We were able... More

Listed as 4star, but 1 week before we were due to fly out, we got an email to say it had been downgraded to 3+star. We would not have booked this if we had know before, but we thought we would see how the holiday went. The rooms were clean and cleaners came 6 days a week. Food was ok... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks and loved the food and staff. Everyone we spoke to was delighted with their stay. Some rooms could do with an upgrade but we enjoyed our stay enough to be booking again for 2015.
