“Good for the price paid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Stayed 13th March for 7 nights. We had a 1 bedroom apartment and it lovely, light and airy and very spacious. The cleaners did a great job, the whole apartment was spotless, really couldn't fault it. The beds were very hard, but I guess this is personal preference.
We stayed by the pool area most days, this can get very loud and rowdy if there are groups and stag/hen parties, which this hotel appear to attract. We weren't bothered by the groups however I did feel sorry for the families with young children as some of the antics were not incredibly appropriate!
The noise was a bit of

Just stayed here for 7 nights from 14th March til 21st March. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment which was huge. We were there for a bit of a boozy week as we had previously stayed here. The pool can get a bit mad with stag/hen parties towards the weekends but that only adds to the amusement during the day. The rooms were clean and tidy. Now for the downsides....we had a tv in our room, with only one English speaking station on it (BBC News)...whilst we were not there to watch TV...one of us had food poisoning so we had to sit in one night so this was a bit of a problem. The noise at night-time was unreal. I never got a decent nights sleep for the whole week and then early morning noise was from the bar staff setting up and cleaning, and cleaning staff moving furniture about. Also, reception staff could be a bit more chirpy...if they smiled it would be amazing. Even checking out we were grunted at. But all in all, this is the place to stay is having a crazy week away and can sleep through noise. Would return, but with ear plugs and a joke book for the reception staff to read and see if you can get a smile from them.

Room Tip: If you can increase your budget...book a 2 bedroom...huge with loads of storage...great if more than...

Stayed her on the 14th March for 3nights with a group of 16 and absolutely loved it perfect for a weekend away rooms were clean,pool area was great, happy hour in the evening was good.

We didn't have a deposit taken off us when we arrived but did have our passports taken.

I would say NOT to go here if you are a family as by the pool side it can be a little uncomfortable with large groups of boys and girls.

I Stayed here as a part of a stag do in early march. Check in was OK bearing in mind there was 32 of us although they take a 30 euro deposit each and your passport off you straight away? Very common though if there is a big group of lads.
Room was clean and tidy although it wasn't cleaned once while we were there, pool area very nice big bar which has to cope with a lot and the staff did very well, pool tables, table tennis.
If you're a group of lads or girls away on a stag or hen this place will do fine if you're a family going away for a holiday i would personally give it a miss.
There was family's there with their kids and when they were around the pool you do keep your language down but that doesn't go for everyone especially after they have had 2 beers and think they're HeMan.
I would recommend this hotel if you're on the lash but be careful because if you break anything you wont get that deposit back.

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment facing oro negro next door. Fair bit of traffic noise especially with constant sirens going to and from nearby hospital, but didn't bother us too much. Room was clean
and spacious. As with other comments found the stag and hen groups a bit too much. Nice pool area but did not use it because of the noise from previously mentioned guests made us feel uncomfortable. Staff were polite and friendly. Hotel doesn't seem to know who to cater for. Not really a hotel for families or those who want a quiet relaxing holiday. Ps beds were really hard.

We arrived at this resort on the 4th March 2014 and stayed for 7 nights. First impressions with the hotel were good, the rooms were clean and the staff seemed friendly. We were placed in room 024 on the ground floor, we being myself, my wife and three young children. This was a two bedroom apartment and on the face of it the holiday was looking good.

I know this resort caters for young and lively however we were advised families were welcomed and it was best going in March as this would be quiet....oh how we were misinformed.

Our apartment was directly above the pool bar, stupid place to put a young family really which belted out music until the bar closed at 23:00. You would have thought we could get some sleep then however from 02:00 onwards the many, many groups of hens and stag do's returned and then it was a case of people being thrown into the pool, chairs and sun loungers too as well as someones glasses. On at least 3 mornings the hotel staff were fishing chairs out of the pool as well as washing the ground around someone asleep on the sun loungers.

This hotel may well cater for stag do's and hen parties however this cannot also cater for your families, you either cater for one or the other.

So after a week or hardly any sleep we were glad to be leaving the Oro Blanco and returned home. The hotel was actually quite nice if they decided who to cater for, either groups or young families and couples.

Final word of advice if you are a young couple or family DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL, unless you relish no sleep for the duration of your stay.

stayed for three nights, travelling as two adults with a young child ,and was unsure what to expect. we had a one bedroom apartment, it was large airy and clean , the maids came in every day to make beds although the floors were not swept for the duration of our stay this wasn't a huge problem however as we only stayed over the weekend, the reception staff were helpful, they did not request a deposit from us as some have mentioned , the property is central, with a nice pool, there were a few hen parties and groups of teenagers, but we only heard some noise on one of the nights, would return, but maybe not in high season due to lack of air conditioning.
