“Excellent resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is was our 2nd visit to Las Brisas and will be returning again next year. Happy helpful staff, jolly lifeguards and the feeling of a safe community all helps a family of 5 to enjoy 2 weeks in the sun. Villas were spotless and had everything you could ask for including flat screen tv with English tv inc Sky sports and cartoon network for the kids. Pool area and bar are excellent and the grounds men work tirelessly to keep the place looking beautiful. Keep up the good work and hope to see you next year. (Great place for families with young children)

This is the 4th time we have stayed at las brisas and we always have a fantastic holiday. The villas are a home from home with flat screen tv,dvd, dishwasher, washing machine etc so if you are on a budget you can adequately self cater. The bar serves snacks throughout the day and night which are all reasonably priced. Evening entertainment is also on at the bar with various different acts such as parrot show, elvis and karaoke. Nothing to do in the day, other than sit by the lovely pool and soak up the rays. We did venture out and visited the nearby national park with its volcanos and also went on a camel ride. This was an arranged trip which we booked at reception - it was really straight forward and the coach picked us up outside on the main road.
Las Brisas is central to everything. The beach, shops, supermarkets are just a short 2-5 minute stroll away. We have stayed in playa blanca numerous times but always end up back at Las Brisas as no other resort is located as well as this one. We will definately be back next year.

Thank you for your comments. The reception can offer to book all sorts of trips and activities on your behalf and so it always worth having a look through the flyers / literature found in reception. We look forward to welcoming you for the 5th visit next year.

We stayed 16 - 30 aug, with 10 & 7 year olds, check in was busy but prompt, did have to wait to get room key but had full use of facilities until then. The bars areas ( tavern & dome) were always busy with minimal staff, but everyone got served. Restaurant was average but repetitive, best to try restaurant 2 which was queue less and quiet. The spa was amazing, don't forget to try it, Thomas cook customers get 1 trip for free. We stayed mainly at the smallish pool at our block, the first week was annoying with us loungers and parasols being reserved by losers who didn't use them til late afternoon if ever at all, but woe betide anyone touch them cos the mafia were watching. The atmosphere improved in week 2 when the culprits left and the pool area once again was pleasant the friendly. Pity some towels went missing though, but guess if the ever removed them from the poolside then they'd be quite safe, lol. We met some fabulous people, enjoyed the hotel, the resort is quiet but pleasant. We walked into resort many times and to the market at the harbour area, taxis were cheap 3/4 euro. U need the back gate key for time saving. The entertainment team were kept very busy but the quality was poor...sorry! Kids club was gr8, mine both thoroughly enjoyed it, especially awesome ash! Worth a trip definitely , just don't expect 5 *

We stayed at Las Brisas for the first time based on the reviews from Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. An initial concern over a villa location was addressed swiftly by the manager by a move to another one and then we had a blissful 8 days. The villas are clean, well equipped with TV/DVD/Aircon/Washing machine etc. A welcome bottle of wine and water was provided as was washing up liquid/sponge. Cleaning service on a monday so fresh towels and bed linen are provided. They also provide beach towels which can be changed fresh daily-a great service. Staff are friendly and attentive. Library of books is available and there is a mini supermarket (very reasonable) & bar (not so reasonable). The pool is clean, large and well organised. We did not experience the entertainment provided so can't comment but it is peaceful and quiet in the evening with no loud music etc. WIFI reception is poor in the villas and it was necessary to use the main computer in reception a few times but apart from that I would highly recommend Las Brisas and it's staff.

Room Tip: It is worth asking for a site plan before you book as some villas are close to a busy road and the r...

We have just returned from our third consecutive holiday at Las Brisas. This year we came with friends and family who we recommended las brisas to.
As usual the villa was beautifully kept and can't be faulted. However, we found the entertainment had declined again from our initial visit. Although saying this, on the last evening their was a couple singing hits from broadway musicals who were brilliant. Elvis was a saviour as usual and couldn't fault Jo for her willingness to entertain. We have also found that the entertainment is getting too late espescially for people with young children, it was supposed to start at 9:30 but on most occasions was nearer to 10pm sometimes later, which is simply too late.
We feel that this caused guests to go outside the complex to look for entertainment and often left the bar deserted in an evening.
I would also like to ask why the beautiful seating on the decked areas have no parasols, we noticed hardly anybody sitting ouside in the daytime unlike in previous years please please return them.
Otherwise we would fully recommend this resort and we look forward to returning again very soon.
P.S. The lifeguard, Miguel, is brilliant with children and adults alike being very fair and entertaining. Always helpful when you needed him, a true asset to the complex.

This is our second stay at Las Brisas, our apartment was clean and well equipped (villa 73), could do with abit of updating though! BBQ has seen its last legs! The bar area was ok but I think could be made a little more appealing as sitting on plastic chairs all night wasn't very comfy! The entertainment was painful apart from the quiz night and karaoke, this really needs looking at!!
That said, my kids loved the place, the resort was very safe and we were able to give them a little more freedom, the real hero of this place is the crazy lovely MIGUEL, the lifeguard!! What a treasure!! He kept our kids safe, happy, entertained and I think he manages to make every child there special in their own way!! He should definately be a keeper and the place just would not be the same without him! We will return, but hopefully Wimpen will take note of people's comments, especially the entertainment, so that Las Brisas remains at the top of the ratings.

We return year after year and really enjoy staying at this resort. The staff are lovely, food and drink in the bar in generally good and the pool and lifeguard service excellent. Couple of gripes from this year; a lot of the villas are looking tired now, many have not been updated since they were built 25 years ago. The entertainment over the last few years has gone down hill dramatically!! Thank goodness for Elvis, at least the Karaoke people were better this year! Please improve the entertainment!!!
