Travelled last week of July first week August '16 This is a great hotel with very good facilities which probably made this get its 5 star rating rather than the quality of the hotel. Thats not to say it isn't good as there is not much wrong with it just a few improvements/ minor maintenance. hotel complex is big but... More

I have just returned from a 7 day stay at The Gran Castillo Hotel in Playa Blanca and i cannot find any faults with this hotel. The best hotel i have ever stayed at for a family vacation. This was the first time my family and i have ever visited a all inclusive resort and it was the best decision... More

Some thoughts from a grumpy nearly-middle aged man. (no offence intended) Food: pretty good, not 5 star but lots of choice. Vegetarian options are terrible though, and the hotel does not clearly identify which main courses have meat/shellfish in - for some reason there was often unlabelled pink meat in the vegetable dishes. Absolutely no need for it. Salads could... More

Planned to go to Egypt for our honeymoon but flights were cancelled a week before (December 2015 just after some attacks) so booked here at last minute and was not disappointed! Our room had a great view over looking the water and was very clean. The staff were especially always so friendly in the restaurant. A huge selection of food... More

We travelled to the Diamond Resort (Playa Blanca, Lanzarote) last year and couldn't believe the accommodation we were presented with. 2 beds, 2 baths, loungers on the patio and a huge table and chairs set outside the patio doors. The kitchen was had everything you could ask for. The pool being about 20 feet away with plenty of sunbeds to... More

What a great all inclusive resort for the family. Several different pools to keep children occupied and free snacks and drinks available for them at the poolside. A little busy at times getting a position for your sun bed but after a couple of Dorada lagers everyone seemed relaxed. A short walk to the beach and some great snorkelling to... More

Everyone has a different view of what makes a good holiday. We read the reviews here before booking and they all seemed great. Here are our thoughts, in no particular order, and they seem to match some of the more recent reviews. Bear in mind our review is for mid August - the hotel is probably completely different out of...
