The bungalows at Rio Playa Blanca are very spacious and bright. Sadly the bed squeaked every time you moved, and was not very comfortable, and the sofa's in the lounge were not meant for sitting on for long. Not sure what the cleaners did apart from replace covers on the beds, renew your towels as required and sweep the patio,... More

I will repeat what others have stated hotel may not be quite a 4 star but its a good 3 star family hotel. Location is quite a walk out of Playa Blanca which for small children find tiring on the return leg but only a short walk to the beach. Entertainment for children was good at all times but adults...

We stayed for 12 days at the end of August, and can honestly say we will be coming back! The food was good - I travelled with fussy eaters and they were happy. The animation team made the holiday even more special for us - Italo in particular was fabulous (my 3 year old daughter still talks about him) along... More

we went here for a week in August. We thought the food was ok but not fantastic. I expected more from all inclusive. Breakfasts were the best meal. Kids were not very well catered for. My sons lived on chips. They had a burger once but it was covered in salt rocks and these were all inside too so they... More

We stayed here the second week in August with our two children aged 4 and 6. We arrived at 9pm and the lady on reception told us to leave our bags and go down for dinner as it closes at 9.30pm. The dinning room was packed and very hot. We sat at a table and were told to move as... More

I will explain my title by saying that having stayed recently at another hotel with a 4* rating earlier this year I could easily see the difference between the 2 very early on. As others have commented, the whole complex is simple and basic but rather dated and really could do with a refurbishment. The bungalows themselves were perfectly adequate... More
