We have just stayed at the Rio Playa Blanca for one week. It represents good value for money. Our bungalow was in good order with no problems at all and was serviced daily by friendly staff.

First of all... I've stayed in many 3 star hotels and this is better than those so if it's not good enough for a 4*, as so many people think, then lets call it a 3*+, We went as a family of 4 (children were 11 and 9) and we had a ball. So much so, we want to book... More

Agree this is probably a 3 star, as others suggest. The nearby Timanfaya Palace is supposedly a 4 star, like Rio Playa, but is palatial in comparison. We returned today, 11th August, after 2 weeks, with boy's aged 14 and11. The good bits, we enjoyed the food and every effort was made with theme nights e.g. Mexican & Italian. Of... More

On arrival at the hotel we were a little disappointed as it looked dated and tired. Our room, although clean and tidy, was also a little tired. However, after a good nights sleep we toured the complex and were pleasantly surprised by the very good layout with a lovely big swimming pool surrounded by sunbeds (could have done with a... More

From start to finish we were very well looked after at the Rio Playa Blanca. The big pull of this holiday was that we could use the water park up the road but didn't have to stay there. Drinks and lunch there were included in our all inclusive package which saved a fortune. The bungalow with two bedrooms was huge... More

Visited Rio Playa Blanca with my wife and two daughters aged 20 and 13 between 20th July to 3rd August. Having re read the reviews I can understand why some people really enjoyed this hotel but sadly for us it wasn't either the hotel or holiday we had hoped for.
