Currently staying at this excellent hotel what can I say very clean, exceptional facilities from the many choices of what feels like private pools to the bar service. The pool snack bar serves wonderful snacks from fresh sandwiches to freshly cooked burgers, pizza, chips. Big shout out the lady in the sports bar who has served a busy bar with a smile and great hospitality each night so far shes deserves a award. The restaurant yum yum. Very good selection of salads, fruits and puddings galore the last 3 days we have had roast beef, prawns fresh salmon along with other fresh taste bud tantalizing dishes. I'm a very fussy eater by the way and have stuff my face each night. Well worth booking!!!! Lastly today my friend had a accident at the beach 20 minutes from the hotel I rushed back whilst she was on her way to the medical centre to get her passport then went down to reception who although they had around 20 people trying to checkin saw I was upset and quickly ordered me a taxi to get back to my friend. Thankfully she is OK and after being on a drip for a hour was aloud back with us to the hotel with medication. The hotel have just called our room to check we were all OK and if we needed anything such a nice thing to do yet another tick yick tick. Thank you Thb tropical defo a paradise in playa blanca. I will be booking again soon and i havent even left yet !!! Ill also be sending all my many contacts here for there breaks tooo. Thank you for making my first break from my busy job in the NHS since covid very memorable and well worth the wait.

Family holiday for 1 week with 2 teenage boys. We had 2 self-catering apartments - very spacious, very clean and well-maintained by cleaning staff. Self-catering is possible but small kitchen facilities may limit any ambitious dishes! Beds very comfortable; very large balcony. Each block has their own small pool which is handy. Range of pools with small safe ones for toddlers, water slides for older children, and larger pools - 1 of which is adults only for chilling! Lots of activities for families even in April. Location is excellent for walking to beach and town centre. Would go back again

Stayed for 10 nights me and my partner and we loved every second of this stay! The rooms are immaculate and cool, comfy beds, absolutely stunning big balcony’s over looking the pools in the hotel, it’s quiet the staff and cleaners are really lovely and helpful I honestly couldn’t fault it. The grounds are beautiful, so clean and full of palm trees, it feels like a little village with lots to do! Plenty of pools and activities going on if your a family. We will 100% be coming back to this little paradise. 20 minute flat walk to playa Blanca town with lots of restaurants and bars and a lovely walk along the promenade to Dorada beach. Was really gutted to be leaving. Don’t be in doubt! Book this hotel you won’t be disappointed.

We have just returned from a 6 night stay here, got a really good last minute deal. We opted for a pool view room which was great, got a ground floor room which was within 12ft of the pool. This place has around 16 pools, the bigger ones are not heated, but once your in and swimmimg and good weather you hardly notice. All the smaller pools are heated, big enough pools though. As it is a complex, feel very safe, it is a bit like a Spanish Butlins! Food for an all inclusive was good, they have themed nights, they have an area for salads, pizza, meats fish, always have pasta and chips on too. Breakfast is really good too. Staff here work very hard and are polite, work really long hours, could not fault them. We took a taxi from the airport, cost 42 euros one way. Took about half an hour. Lots of beaches nearby, the hotel offer a bus to the beach and its golden sand and would recommend. The local shop in the hotel is okay, a little on the expensive side but that is expected. We got a taxi into town for 4 euro and picked up a few bits. Our room air con didnt appear to work for first 2 days, however we left it on for 24 hours and it worked a treat,room felt like a fridge! Lovely to get into after a sun bathing session. Room included a good size fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee machine, hair dryer, kitchen sink and hob. Also a safe. Entertainment is good, a lot of magic shows and some dance/singing, we went everynight and only 1 night was a bit mediocre. Even though it is more suited for families, they do have an adults only pool and bar which was ideal for us as a couple going. No fighting or running for sun loungers here, plenty at each of the pools. Animation team was great too, getting everyone involved. We will be definitely be going again in future. All in one place and great location to explore locally too.

We are currently here and arrived 2 days ago, nice hotel - food fine, pools etc lovely. However our air com stopped working so i had no sleep last night (currently 31 weeks pregnant also!) booked here as it had air con in rooms! Rang reception who didnt seem too bothered just said ‘yeh its broke at the moment’ i said how long until its fixed?! He said ‘maybe a week maybe a few days dont know’ !! Really not acceptable, not even offered a fan! They need to fix it asap. Shame as its the only thing so far that has let this hotel down.

We visited this hotel in April and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. On my booking with the tour operator I was only able to book a garden view room, but after reading the reviews I contacted the hotel to upgrade to a ground floor pool room, the communication with the hotel before arrival was fantastic. Upon arrival the reception staff were very welcoming and thorough with their information. The facilities at the hotel are wonderful and my 9 year old daughter loved the pools and the splash park. The staff at the pool bar were amazing they were friendly and attentive even in busier periods. In particular Fini and Diego (and one other gentleman but I can't recall his name) were great this level of service carried on through to the bar in the dome in the evening, they work extremely long hours and after reading previous reviews about the service I would say that a little politeness and understanding towards the staff goes along way. We couldn't fault the food there was ample choice everynight and everynight was a theme ranging from Chinese, tex mex, fish, Italian with plenty of salads and deserts. The breakfast always offered a good selection of cooked breakfast, pancakes and continental breakfast. We didn't use the restaurant for lunch and mostly stayed around the pool bar as the pool bar offered a good range of lunch time foods such as salad boxes, ham and cheese sandwiches, pizza, burgers, nuggets and chips. There are always ample drink selections available alcoholic, non alcoholic and warm drinks. The mini disco was great for the kids although during our stay we did find that the evening entertainment felt a little repetitive as the majority of the shows were magic/ illusion types of acts. However non of the acts were bad it is just our personal preference that we didn't particularly enjoy them. However I am conscious that social distancing restrictions have only recently been lifted in Lanzarote so understandably there might not be that many evening entertainment acts currently working the hotels. The hotel is roughly a 15minute walk in to playa blanca and around a 30 minute walk to the marina rubicon, however we did make use of the electric scooters located around the area, download the app and you scan the barcode on the scooter and you pay for the time that you use it for, to travel on the scooter from the hotel to playa blanca it cost under 3 euros (we actually fit three of us on one scooter). Playa Blanca itself was a great vibrant resort. We will definitely be returning.

We loved everything - the room was big and comfortable, with little kitchen and beautiful balcony. Cleaning lady came every day with new towels and bottle of water. Breakfast was delicious and various - egg station was the best. Pancakes too. ☺️ There are lots of pools - some of them are heated and the kids loved everything about the pools and animation team. What I loved the most is the fact that the hotel was full, but there were no crowd at the pools... In front of a hotel there was a free parking space... Playa Blanca is perfect choice for hotels because the wind is not so strong here as can be on the other parts of this amazing island. We had a great time here and I would recommend this hotel to everyone...

Overall not a bad place, we visited as a couple. Large complex with lots of pools, the two main pools are NOT heated and are freezing cold. The smaller pools are heated. Approx 15min walk down to the beach, which is lovely but sea is also freezing. Sun beds and parasol are €4 each. Hotel does a free bus to the beach also. We went AI but had a large self catering apartment with kitchenette which was lovely. Breakfast has everything you’d expect and was nice, we ate lunch at the snack bar, burgers, hotdogs, salads etc. evening meal again nice, plenty of choice. Wine and beer is self serve which is good. Pool area is clean and really nice gardens. Plenty of shops and bars etc just a small walk away. Reasonably priced hotel. Approx 30mins drove from airport. And weather during our stay was lovely. 25 degrees every day.

We have just left this hotel after a 7 night stay, all inclusive. We are a family of 6 and stayed in 2 one bed apartments with a pool view. The rooms worked well. The sofa bed converts into two singles and here is a king size or two singles in the bedroom. The pool right outside the apartments is heated with a hot tub size pool that’s even warmer. You are allowed inflatables in all the pools so if you are thinking of getting one, buy before you fly a expensive once here. Rooms cleaned each day and towels changed on a regular basis. You can get free pool towels for a €10 deposit which you can change every day. The main pools are great fun, but freshwater so is cold this time of year when you first get in. Splashing around, up and down the slides and then swimming keeps you more than warm. The adult only area is lovely, really peaceful and a great place for lane swimming or grabbing drinks without having queue at the pool bar. I only realised this short cut halfway through but worked great when taking drinks back to the pool by the rooms. The sun-beds are lovely here. The food was a lot better than I expected. The main restaurants (2 big areas either side of the complex) didn’t feel crowded and served a wide selection of freshly prepared food at the main mealtimes. The pool bar served a wide variety of snacks but mainly burgers; nuggets and hot dogs, and salads for those wanted less calories. With 4 children this was a great move. The Ice cream is local varieties and not include of ice lollies. Facilities were great. Played plenty of tennis and football with equipment that can be hired for a small deposit from the reception. Our children took part in some of the daytime activities which were on each day. The evening entertainment was good, once you had missed the children disco at 8:30 pm each night. This change each evening and was inside so no worry re cold evenings. The beach is about half a mile walk from the bottom entrance to the resort. The beach was lovely and you can hire peddalos; jet skis and banana boats with ease. Playa Blanca itself was nice to visit for a change of scenery but even better for a morning run to keep the all inclusive pound off the body!!!!
