Looking at some of the other reviews, yes it is a bit tired but over the last few years, all the places we have stayed at have been too. All the accommodation we have stayed in is furnished very similarly and this was no different but it was clean and everything functioned as expected. The bungalow was quite large with... More

Hotel was not bad value for money but a little tired. The location is about 10 minutes to local beach but about a 40 minute walk into playa blanca. The animation team were not great unless you were 6 and under. I took an 8 and 11 year old and they did not engage with them at all. There were... More

This is my third "all inclusive" holiday with my family, so it is being compared to the two previous all-inclusive holidays, both of which were at the same hotel in Es Figueral, Ibiza. Ultimately, as this is a family holiday, my wife and I would ultimately be happy if the kids (age 6 & 4 respectively) are happy, which in... More

I am probably a bit harsh scoring 'average', but it wasn't 'very good' - so best option. We stayed 2 weeks AL, as a family with 2 children 14 and 10. In general we had a relaxing two weeks at the Playa Blanca but this isn't a 4* star complex by any means. GOOD POINTS Huge pool, mainly deep though,... More
