We just got back from a two week break at the Sun Beach Apartments and has the most relaxing and fun time for a long while. The maids and Reception staff were always friendly and helpful, no problem was too much for them. The bar staff, namely Antonio was a genious and not only was he a great bar man but he also provided much entertainment. If you go on a Saturday night and watch him play "sweet Caroline" with spoons and bottles alongside the resident singer Alan, this is an experience you will not forget!!
Things to be aware of are the restaurant food which was not of the highest quality (go self catering if you can) and there are more than enough restaurants to eat out by Playa Blanca beach (5 minutes in a taxi) of much better quality. I would also say that the onsite cafe often took quite a while for food to arrive and it wasn't always what we had ordered.
Lastly on the minus side, I would suggest taking a taxi in to town at night (appox 3 Euros each way and Reception ordered very promtly for us). There were a couple of nasty incidents involving cameras etc being stolen off people when walking past some waste land near the hotel, but during the day - no problems at all and perfectly safe.
That said, we really did have a great holiday and although the rooms are basic, they are very clean with regular maid service and towel changes. We had a lovely terrace too which is a great sun trap late afternoon and seems to cut out the strong breezes that occurred quite regularly. The breezes are also quite strong in the evenings, so take a jacket!
Re excursions, we went on the submarine safari and the Rancho Texas Park during the day and the wild west night at Rancho Texas on a Tuesday evening, all well worth the money and the wild west evening was absolutely brilliant and suitable for all ages from 1-100.
We would definitely go back to Playa Blanca again, in fact missing it already! We thought well worth the money for flight and accommodation. This is a perfect holiday for couples and families looking for a quiet getaway.
