Straight to the point: 7/10 for location, 5 minute walk to promenade honestly. 9/10 for accomodation, spacious and spotless bungalows in lovely gardens. 5/10 for facilities, no lounge and bar area cramped. 5/10 for AI drinks, we were only kept waiting a few minutes and staff always polite. 4/10 for pool, very clean but absolutely freezing, it is not acclimatised...

As most I found the hotel great value for money paid. Rooms were clean and spacious but very cold in January, we put a hair dryer on to warm up the bath room before showering. Apart from that the service was friendly and very good. On the downside the dinning room was vastly under staffed which meant things kept running... More

Whilst I accept that we did not pay top prices for this hotel we did choose it because it was classified as a four star. In reality it was only, in my opinion, just a 2star (thanks to its private bathroom facilities). It is clearly past its best in terms of the accommodation. In our 1 bedroom "bungalow" there was...

Weather was not too good the week we were there, therefore chalets were cold day and night, also in smoking areas outside restaurant and bar though they did provide heaters and closed the blinds down the last few nights of our stay. We were informed the air-conditioners in the chalets did not work as heaters too(they usually do) but we... More

Much like others, we found the all inclusive package at this hotel terrific value for money. As previously put in another review, you will not get 4 star UK hotel conditions but we couldn't fault the cleanliness of the 'bungalow' the helpfulness of the staff and the immediate location. We went in mid January and had two overcast days in... More

I'll keep this short and sweet.............. 4* hotels room only in the UK are approx £120+ PPPN so why do people expect to pay £300ish for a week All Inclusive (which includes a 4 hr flight) and then moan about it not being "The Ritz"? You get what you pay for and the hotel is clean, food plentiful (unless your... More

Returned just over a week ago from the HL Rio Playa Blanca and can honestly say we had one of the best hols ever. The bungalows were spotless and had a great big sun terrace if you wanted some quietness for sunbathing. There was plenty of variety with regards to the food. Some people did say it was repetative however... More
