My friend and I (40 somethings!) stayed in this all inclusive hotel for one week.
It was a super holiday only being hapered by the weather as it was mixed. If you go this time of year it is cold at night and you will need a jacket/fleece. Ladies leggins under those maxi dresses! not that people dressed up. It was more jeans and jumper for most people.
The room was a one bedroom bungalow the only complaint is the matress could have been better and more comfortable. Plus you can hear next door cleaning their teeth or talking in the bathroom. However It was clean tidy and fitted with hairdryer, microwave, fridge and kettle. Even though we were AL.
It was a very short walk to the pool which was cleaned daily and the kids (we didn't take any with us) loved it and no matter what the weather seemed to be in it.The small round pool has more heat in it than the bigger pool
The food was spot on. All I can say to those who could not find anything to eat or found it repetitive - What is wrong with you? Every breakfast/lunch and dinner there was more than enough choice and enough food to sink the titanic! before the holiday we had decided to eat out a few nights to break the holiday up, All I can say is, we didn't, there was no need and every night there was a different theme. There is a microwave in the restaurant so those who like their food at nuclear heat level - go for it. For me the fact that the plates were that hot I needed a servette to hold it and the food itself was hot, was enough
We did venture out purely for the entertainment side of a night time. We sampled many bars. The Irish ones for us the best. But on the front there are plenty for everyones taste. If you like sports there are plenty of bars with T.V's to watch that all important match.
The walk in to Playa Blance is approx 15/20 mins depends on how fit you are. It's a lovely safe walk and if you are feeing particularly lazy no more than 4 euro's. A taxi can be ordered from the reception and there is at least two major taxi ranks in the town itself to get back.
The staff were great and always helpful nothing was too much trouble. The manager always seems to be there as well and more than happy to help.
The animation team worked around the clock to see that a good time was had by all (we didn't join in - not our thing) but we got asked at the start of the hols then left alone, which was great for us. We always knew if wanted to do the daily activities we could join at anytime day or night.
For those who have stated you get what you pay for OF COURSE YOU DO! this is not a 5* luxury AL paradise hotel with slaves running around pampering to your every need you have to pay alot more for that experience.
This was a super holiday - highly recommended and I would go back.
