Based on the reviews, I had very low expectations and was very nervous. I am extraordinarily picky and I am used to going to 5 star deluxe resorts without wristbands. However this was for a group of 10 people and with the Canadian dollar being so low, we had limited options in our budget. Weather was plus 30 and sunny... More

Well it has been a few years since we have stayed at Playa Blanca Beach. We were aware of the 3 star rating which it was last time we stayed, however we believe that is a stretch for this trip. The beach is a delight and just wonderful for a long walk. There are not many palapas on the beach... More

This was our third time here they seem to cater to short stay Latin American families, they are very rude some like to get drunk at the disco when they come back to their rooms at 3:30 am and break bottles in the hallways and manage to upset everyone management doesn't seem to care, the people in the tower use...

Overall disastrous stay! Upon arrival for check-in, the wait was entirely too long as desk staff seemed very inexperienced. Upon arrival to our room, there were no towels in the bath. There were no condiments (coffee, creamer, sugar, etc). When attempting to call the desk for assistance, no one ever answered the phone. Had to search for house keepers ourselves... More

Beach volleyball, horse back riding and a exercise obstacle coarse. Pool side activity are bean bag toss and giant chess game . They had dancing lessons and pool volleyball but all only... More

Honestly, this is the worst all-inclusive hotel I've ever stayed in. And non-inclusive too. Nothing major, but all small things that don't work create an awful overall experience. Cons: This 2 years old hotel has a very good looking lobby. That's it. Nothing else. No service the way we all understand vacation hotel service should be. We came in really... More

At this resort the beach and the pools were nice but got very quickly dirty and there where not enough options for shade because of not enough parasols and there was not enough sun beds. All over very bad service from staff. I visit some friends at another resort nearby and it was also a very bad service there as... More

Well, this is my second time here.... The first was till after the opening. Great perspectives! So, for that I am back... What a terrible surprise!! They hand out numbers which are called for the check in. Their staff is the most lazy and slow that I've ever seen in my life. They take about 15 minutes per family. The... More

Visited on Jan 11, 2016. Pros: Unique salt water pool. Good curb appeal. Cons: Upper Management and supervisors don't care. (You just another number) Rooms dirty. Beds with hair from the top cover to the mattress. Toilets, sinks, showers not to the best cleanliness. Sofas and chairs are very stained and or broken. Mildew on A/C system and covered with...

Our overall experience with this resort was good. We had booked a grand pool suite based on what we had read on this site. Our room was on the 6th floor overlooking the "grand saltwater pool", in the "town center building". This location was ideal for us Nice and quiet, with good access to the pool. The room was spacious,... More
