We rented two 3 bedroom/2bathroom apartments from Playa Blanca Vacation, for a family reunion. These are the newer looking tall towers that interconnect with Playa Blanca Resort. It took a while to check-in as the attendant had other duties and made us wait. The plus point is that check-in starts at 10AM and check out is at 12noon. Of course,... More

We bought two nights in this new Playa Blanca Town Center. We arrived with high expectations, because we already had stayed at the hotel. At the reception, the checkin was a long row with some disorder. The hotel staff did not know how to put order in the line and only had two serving about 25 people. We received our... More

We recently came back form a 5 night stay at Playa Blanca resort. It's great value for your money, the staff have been very helpful and in general provided a great service.

We had a good week here. Playa Blanca (white beach/sand) the beach is not, the coast by the hotel is dark (some would say dirty) sand that comes out of the adjacent river. To the west the beach is better and golden yellow. Swimming off the beach has its limitations thru both tides and stingrays, we were told. The lagoon... More

I stayed numerous times at the Hotel Playa Blanca Beach Resort and was pleasantly surprised with the resort. The best part of the resort are the animators, or play-makers, that keep the fun going 24/7. There are fun events all throughout the day, and the shows at night are excellent. There are many different types of food options in the... More
