Difficult to find any fault with this complex. Apartments are ground floor bungalows with own sun loungers. The complex was lovely and quiet, maids are happy and do a good job. Can't see why some people say that the apartments need refurbishing as they seemed fine to us. 20 minute walk into town, recommend the glass fronted restaurant half way along by the ferry port on the sea front if you like fish. There is a line of restaurants further along but do not be fooled into thinking that there is nothing beyond them - about 800 yards around the corner there is a complex of bars with live entertainment every night. Would definately go back again.

This was my second trip to Playa Limones although my wife has been visiting 2-3 times a year for the last 8 years or so.
The service provided by the 2 reception staff was faultless. They were also more than happy to put phone calls from family through to our room each day.
We always travel on an accommodation only basis , the cooking facilities in the room are basic but enough to heat soup , cook egg bacon etc. The fridge although small was enough to put food and drink in.
It is easy to eat out at the restaurants either down the road opposite the hotel by the water front or in Playa Blanca about 10-15 mins walk.
Our room was clean and the maid friendly and service was excellent .
The rooms have loungers on the patio along with table and chairs enabling you to sit out at any time.
The bathroom was clean with adequate towels,
The bedroom has 2 single beds and the bedding clean changed once during the stay. Although i must say that the beds are hard and pillows lumpy. The location is very quite at night. There is a safe in the wardrobe that can be hired together with a key deposit .
The living / dining room has a large sofa style settee and single chair along with dining table and chairs. The is a TV in the room , the remote can be obtained from reception for a deposit. *** i would however point out that English are not catered for on the TV services provided the only stations in English BBC World news and CNN, hardly fair when French and German have about mixed programmes 7 each and something the Hotel should put right ****
The pool area was clean , although I must admit allowing the staff families to use the pool area on a Sunday makes it very noisy for a while.
I have noted remarks from 21.10.10 re which was to go and sent the wrong way , these comments are totally incorrect.
The quickest way to get to Playa Blanca and the shops is to turn left out of the hotel and carry straight on, although the road is unlit at night, it takes about 10-15 mins. You can walk down the slope opposite to the Sea and follow the footpath around which takes you to the Harbour then use the dirt track and stairs to get to the shops. However using this way will miss out the Spar food shop on the road ( supermarkets on the front down the hill are much more expensive) Walking the sea route is far longer making the walk about 20-25 mins.
I would also advise anyone leaving early next day to return all items on a deposit the night before as reception is only open 9am – 9pm. If you are due to arrive late afternoon or evening it may also be advisable to contact the hotel before leaving home or when booking to arrange how to check in if after 9pm?
Overall Playa Limones provides an excellent quiet relaxing holiday, i would certainly return .

Bungalows/apartments are very well set out, although could do with being refurbished. Cooking facilities are limited with two hotplates and a toaster, although you can hire a microwave for €30 per week. Patios are furnished with a table and chairs and two sunloungers, which you can hire cushions for €10 each per week.

Ideally siutated for Playa Flamingo Beach and very near the promenade, from which you can walk to the harbour, marina, restaurants and bars.

Playa Blanca is a quiet resort ideal for a relaxing beach holiday. You can get a ferry over to Fuertuventura (€20 per person return).

We would definitely return.

The complex is in a good location and the gardens and pool are tidy and well kept the staff were helpful.
The bungalow though roomy was in desparate need of updating. It was generally poorly equipped and had a noisy old damaged fridge with a faulty door. The toilet cistern was also in need of repair, leaking and flushing of its own volition. The towels were threadbare ,sheets old and worn and the beds creaky and uncomfortable. The rough stone shower area was hard on the feet. Cleaning was inadequate.
Some bungalows may be better than others we were disappointed with ours.

Room Tip: Avoid bungalow number 6.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Playa Limones.
The complex itself was clean, quiet and peaceful.
The bungalow we had was clean and spacious. It had a private terrace with its own sunbed and table/chairs.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
The only slight inconveniences that might affect people – although we weren’t bothered by it – is that reception is only open 9am to 9pm and the bedding is only changed once per week.
Breakfast was pretty good with a large selection to choose from – everything from cereals, fruit, yoghurts, cold meats and cheeses, bread and pastries, and a selection of hot food (fried, scrambled & boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, etc.) that varied from day to day.
Plenty of sunbeds around the pools - although we preferred the sea and sand as the complex is also well situated with a just short walk down to Flamingo Beach.
What we really liked was the pedestrian promenade that’s about 4 miles long and Flamingo Beach is situated at the midway point. From here, you can walk west all the way to the lighthouse or east all the way to Rubicon Marina - a really nice walk either way in the sun.
At night we would walk the promenade east to the town area where all the restaurants are situated overlooking the sea with plenty of choice of restaurant style. We ate in a different place every night and didn’t have one bad meal.
There are also a couple of decent restaurants, (we had a lovely meal in the Greek one), if you head west along the prom as well
We also did the South Tour of the island taking in Timanfaya & El Golfo and on another day, the Cesar Manrique Tour which we thought was even better, taking in the water caves, the artist’s house and the amazing cactus garden.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Playa Limones/Playa Blanca and haven’t got a bad word to say about the place.

Just got back from staying at Playa Limones and loved it there. Staff we're perfectly friendly, so these review of them being rude is rubbish they couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome! (If you're rude, don't expect people to be nice back!) It is just a sort walk away from the beach and lots of restaurants. Expect to see cockroaches in places where it’s hot, we saw one but it was dead. I was sceptical after reading the reviews but found none of the bad ones to be true. Would highly recommend Playa Limones!

I went on a girl holiday just the other day, there were 3 of us so we all staqyed in 1 apartment. there was 1 bedroom and a sofa bed, this didnt bother us though. the room was very clean and a decent size with a fridge and cooking aparatus. the cleaner came basically everyday and changed our towels and tidied our stuff up (poor lady) but when i met one of the cleaners she was very very lovely. the Pools were lovely and there were lots of sunloungers and shade so no problem there. There is a bar next to the pool which was nice. We stayed half board, so 2 meals a day, the food was lovely and there was plenty of it (less options for vegetarians, lots for pescatarians though) Now the staff. i have never met such friendly and useful staff, the male receptionist was very helpfull and funny and seemed very happy to see us. My favorite member of staff was Luis the barman, he spoke good english and we were there on his last working night, so we went out on the nighttime to celebrate with him. The man that served us our drinks at dinner time was lovely and made our meal time much more pleasant. Playa Limones is a quiet site suitable for all i feel. The beach is literally 2 minutes away, cross a road and then walk down a small hill and you are there. there are resturants tehre aswell, but the better resturants are abouts a 15 minute walk along the beach and your there, theres a funfair, irish pub, kareoke bar and lots of nice little tourist shops. Also if you are looking to go out during the day the receptionist will help you book that, i would highly reccomend the texas ranch zoo, £17 euros to get in for the dat, and £4 euros for the coach, there are loads of things there, a sea lion show, water park...WHITE TIGERS!! and its all humaine as they are rescued animals. i had my photo taken with a sea lion called nemo. i would also reccomen the Teguise market, Bur look around the shops first as i paid 10 euros for a belt, but the shop was sellign it for 5. you must also be good at haggling else they will try and rip you off! but lovely day out. i would reccomend this clean and friendly place to anyone (but if you are looking for clubbing areas playa del carmen is the place to be as there are no clubs in playa blanca) but if you old young, got kids or a couple i would reccomend it. i hope to go back next year!!!

Room Tip: there isnt a sea view but a room with a pool view looked loveley.
