Anything you asked about the hotel if it was is the pool clean to is there enough food selection at the buffet your answer is 100% guaranteed to be "amazing!". The staff are cheerful... More

POOL. Freezing, absolutely bitter cold. Sister hotel, a short walk away has a great waterpark (bus also available, but not required) - also has a very good bar snack (which HL Rio does not). ROOMS no problem with the rooms, dated but comfortable and cleaned everyday with towels changed if requested. DININGROOM. Always plenty of choice and it was always... More

We stayed here for eight days in July. I always try to leave very fair feedback and feel bad when it's not as positive as the hotel would like, but can't help it in this case: Our check-in was quick and efficient, thanks to the Dutch trainee working there. As we were too early for our room to be cleaned,... More

Food was excellent, breakfast was the best, however after the 2nd week does get repetitive. My 2 children found the pool to be freezing and this... More

Advertised as a 4 star hotel with Water park, This is not the case. First of all two stars should be taken out of the advertising as the food, rooms and amusements are an average standard. Also the water park is a hot, sweaty old bus ride away at a sister hotel further up the hill. The bus only runs... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent holiday at HL Rio Playa Blanca. We received a friendly and efficient welcome from Ana when we checked in and she was quick to ensure that we did not miss lunch. Our accommodation (2-bed, 2-bath bungalow) was clean and spacious, and the maid service was good - plenty of fresh towels and toilet rolls and... More

Disappointed on arrival of a 4* as the reception area was nothing more than a 2*. I've been to many all inclusive s and this has been the worst. Luggage had to be left there while had a snack and our room was organized. Room was a 2 bedroom which was ok, clean & tidy. It had 2 bedrooms, 2... More
