“Fantastic family holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We were a bit concerned having read some reviews but these proved to be nothing like the holiday we experienced. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly hotel staff whether it was extra pillows which materialised within minutes of requesting them to the personal taxi service to the sister-hotel Paradise Island because the courtesy bus left without us. The apartment/bungalow was really spacious and clean and serviced daily to a great standard. The hotel provided towels for the pool on a refundable deposit scheme which worked brilliantly and meant you could have a clean one every day rather than having to dry out your own. The quality and variety of the food was fantastic - hot dishes were hot and cold dishes were cold! Even picky eaters could always find something to eat and the help-yourself drinks and snacks at the pool was brilliant for the children. None of us was ill or had upset tummies - although we were scrupulous about removing any ice from drinks which is where I think some people were going wrong. We went three times to the water park which was fantastic but made us realise we had definitely chosen the better (ie quieter and less chaotic!) hotel to stay at. Contrary to what other people have said we actually didn't rate the food at the waterpark as highly - it felt far more fast-food produced. All in all a great week and we wouldn't hesitate in returning.

As our first 'sun' holiday for a few years, we were really pleased with Club Playa Blanca. The hotel was really picturesque; lovely, helpful staff; fantastic location - just a 10 minute walk from the beautiful seafront (great for runners like me who can go for a pre-breakfast run!); great for kids too, the pool set up is small and everything is in easy reach, which means that it's easy to keep visual tabs on your little ones! The food is lovely too (all inclusive), a great range and a lovely set up in the restaurant - our little one (who's 6) felt like such a big girl being able to help herself to food and drink! The water park was fun (at the sister hotel - a 5 min bus ride away), although for our 6 year old's height (under 120cm) there weren't that many slides she could go on; that said, the little kiddies' park was lovely with some little slides she could go on. The chalets were comfortable too...we were tucked away at the side, on the edge of the complex which we didn't mind as it was nice and quiet. We so loved it at Club Playa Blanca, we have just booked again for half-term next year. Thank you to everyone at the hotel.

Just come back from Canaries after a half term holiday with wife/ daughter and grandson. Had a great time a Club Playa Blanca. Accomodation was spotless and maid service excellent.Rooms were spacious and well equipped. (we got a room with a kettle!) We found the food fine, well cooked and no tummy upsets! Staff in restaurant and bars were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. If have a criticism it would be that the children's entertainment didn't start until 8:30 when our little 2 1/2 year old man was ready for his bed. Overall a great holiday. Thank you all at Playa Blanca and I hpe to see you again.

Booked our holiday to lanzerote which was our first time there through sunshine holidays, an internet company which i must say provided an excellent service and would have no hesitation in using or recommending them again.
Chose a few hotels but decided to go with all inclusive club playa blanca mainly because we could find a hotel room (bungalow) with 2 rooms, although only a family of 4 our boys are grown up now and wanted us all to have a bit of privacy. also paid to include a pass to the dino waterpark at hotel paradise island. We were looking forward to using the waterpark facilities and you can also use your band to allow you to uses their lunch facilities. we thought the waterpark was rubbish, its very small and consist of a few long tubes and slides and a splash pool for little ones. we have been to alot of waterparks like most people and my husband is a really good swimmer but on his way down the slide it somehow catapulted him head first and (fair play) the life guards were there in seconds. but overall i dont think its worth the extra money. our restaurant experience at the paradise was better than our own hotel and although exactly the same set up and type of food you could tell it was much better cooked.
as for club playa blanca, the hotel itself is very nice and dont think we could find fault with it. the pool area is nice although there is a problem with getting a sunbed. the management say they will remove towels from reserved beds but they dont. one day beds were reserved next to us and it was 3pm before they returned to them, so what chance do you have? the hotel bungalow rooms provide everything you need really if all inclusive, fridge and microwave but no kettle. and the bedding and rooms are clean.
the main fault is the restaurant. the few staff there are really overworked so they have no real time for smiles or politeness. the only night we saw a change was the night that the 'big boss' turned up and things were really different that night but went back to usual service the next day. the food is nice but certain important items such as eggs, sausages,fish and chicken especially are not thoroughly cooked which later proved to be a big problem because 3 of us were taken ill there and me upon our return. i had extreme sickness and the other and passed out 4 times i really felt like dying to be honest. the food IS nice but is repetative and obvioulsy they do have an issue with food safety.
if i were to go to playa blanca again i would use the hotel again but under no circumstances use the restaurant. would choose to eat in the town.
regular buses take you to the linked hotels and the beach so location is fine. playa blanca itself is fairly laid back so would perhaps try puerto del carmen next?
overall a good holiday, good hotel and resort but food is a no no for me sorry.

Room Tip: we were in room 609 which is towards the rear of the grounds and a fairly long walk to it although i...

Just back from 12 days in hotel club blanca , it is my fifth year going there with my family and once again we had a ball .Staff were again excellent Alberto,christina,Christin and all the other staff members superb.Our apartment was clean , food was plentiful , drink was flowing and our kids love the pool and entertainment team.The food this year was much hotter and a nice variety if you are a fussy eater this is perhaps not the place for you but you will not go hungry and never wait for a table when it comes to meal time.Kids can help themselves to ice-cream all day long and a mineral when they wish.All in all my wife ,2 kids and mum hope to return next year if all goes well for year number 6!

Great hotel, great pool, great weather and met great people. The staff were very friendly, very helpful, very hard working and all with a good sense of humour. The bungalows were very spacious and clean set in beautiful gardens. Loved our family holiday and would strongly recommend this hotel and Playa Blanca, beautiful... in fact we will be back :-) :-) x

We have just returned after a 2week stay at Club Playa Blanca. Hotel grounds were lovely and maintained to a good standard, staff were always polite and helpful considering the longs hours they put in. The restaurant was a good size so there were never queues for tables, food was of a good standard and always a good choice it did get a bit repetative in week 2 but we still found something to eat, the desserts were awesome !! The pool was a cold but once in it was fine, pool area was lovely and no issues getting a sunbed, the toilets around pool area were immaculate and cleaned regularly throughout the day. We visited the waterpark once which my 13 yr old enjoyed, Paradise island was a bit busier, so we were glad we chose Club playa. Entertainment team work hard throughout the day and night, enjoyed the shows they put on at night. Apartments were comfortable and clean with a microwave, kettle, cups and glasses which was fine as we were all inclusive, free wifi available in reception you just need to get passcode from reception, we paid 28 euros for wifi in room for as there for 2 weeks. Overall we had a fab time, met some awesome people and will be returning to this hotel in the future. If people are put of by some of the reviews don't be it is a fab place with great staff who are always happy to help. So pay Club Playa Blanca a visit and a have a fab holiday.
