“Family holiday in the sun.”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Very good value for money, nice spacious bungalows in lovely surrounding, lots of lovely plants, in the bathroom there are two sinks and huge mirror handy in the evening when getting ready to go out. No sign of any cockroaches. All the staff were very helpful and went out of their way to be helpful. One member of our party lost her bracelet and a member of staff was kind enough to take her to the local police station in her own car so she could translate. The food was good, plenty of choice, occasionaly we had to ask for cutlery. The pool area was nice and always enough beds for us all to be together., but beware very slippy!! Not far to walk down to resort. Takes about 10 minutes, enjoyed a few enjoyable evenings at the irish bar, good music,

Yet again cannot praise the staff enough.

Well where to start, again as in my last review from november 2011, i still stick by my guns and say that this hotel is great value for money,you get what you pay for. In the two years we have visited this hotel, we can honestly say we may have seen 'a' cockroach! As regards to flies, do people seriously think that they are only visiting the club playa blanca? Has it never entered their heads that they are also found in just about every hotel in the world? Theres flies and ants and every other flying insects anywhere its hot! Its called nature! Its not a nice thought to think that they find there way into food areas, but truth be known what you don't see don't hurt you, i am pretty sure the five star hotels are'nt bug free all the time.The staff at the hotel are a bit thin on the ground at times, but you are'nt waiting long. Maid service is excellent, every day our rooms were cleaned and towels changed. We had no hot water one day and within half an hour of me telling it to the lady on reception a maintenance man had been round and fixed it and this was ten o'clock on a sunday night! Foodwise again i am not fussy, i will try anything and so will my daughter, its nice to try things you have never tried before. The food is exellently displayed, and regrdless of what some comments are theres plenty of choice unless you are a fussy dont like anything eater! Admitably there were occasions when it could have been a bit warmer, but in the last twenty five years of visiting different countries and hotels this appears to happen quite alot.Entertainment wise again theres lots of activities in the daytime to take part in, e.g archery,water polo, shooting, pool darts, the evening is ok not brill but ok, some nights are better than others. So lets just sum up again, where can you get a reasonably good place to stay at a reasonable price? the hotel club playa blanca! I could be petty and say don,t go, theres bits of paint coming off the doors, or theres a bit of rust on the bathroom mirror! but i am not a sad individual! Lifes what you make it. If you are paying £1600 for an all inclusive holiday for a family of four, that you would find very difficult to get anywhere else then you certainly can,t complain. This hotel in my honest opinion deserves a three star plus. Its basic but clean accomodation, the staff work very hard and the food is fine. If you want better then pay another £1000 plus and go five star. But i can assure you i have paid alot more than £1600 and stayed in worse places. End of the day you are going on holiday go and enjoy!

Bungalows very spacious nice kept areas surrounding the bungalows, kept to a high level for cleanliness.All the Staff at this hotel were friendly and helpful couldnt fault them,I think the company that owns this hotel should employ a few more staff to cover bar, restaurant etc they do work hard. Breakfast was excellent-snack bar food was gross left open to the elements flies etc and left cold plus no staff overseeing-suggest you eat in the restaurant. Lunch time and evening not a great variety some evenings better than others but cooked and presented well- restaurant chefs and staff always friendly and helpful. BEWARE AROUND THE POOLSIDE AND PATHS AROUND THIS AREA VERY SLIPPERY WHEN WET A DANGEROUS SLIP AREA. Sunbeds plenty around but a lot broken hotel needs to update some of them. Airdryers in toilets whilst we were there none of them working. Its a basic hotel with no frills, we did enjoy our stay but have had better. Getting around the resort is fine not to far to walk to seafront, harbour and shops. Being the October half term wasnt exactly cheap-you always get stung money wise. would we go back there? Very unlikley perhaps if we got a very good deal.

I stayed at this hotel for a week in October 2012 on a family holiday. It is more like a three star, definitely not four. The bungalows are spacious and fine however there are lots of ants and insects around, yes it is Lanzarote but this hotel could be cleaner. I have stayed in many hotels that are four star and not seen a cockroach in sight! The pool is nice but the tiles are extremely slippy and a boy slipped and fell while we were there. It is very dangerous for all, especially little ones. A lot of sunbeds were broken and at night the area wasn't well lit. The play area has no lights for on a night so it is pitch black if children want to play. The food was ok, it got better as the week went on, breakfast was probably the best meal. Food was very repetitive, sometimes cold and not a lot of choice. The dining room has no air con. We didnt eat at the pool bar, once went to look and there were flies on and around the food. There were hardly any waiters, I probably saw one or two at each meal time and it took a while for tables to be cleaned. Cutlery wasn't readily available. The pool bar was nice however there was only ever one person serving drinks so service was very slow. Entertainment was ok of what I saw however very cheesy and dated and children's entertainment was on far too late. The Spanish bar was never open. Reception were very helpful and friendly. The bus to the beach was great and always on time. The hotel doesn't have a supermarket like its sister hotels and there isn't one around the area. The beach and town is a ten to fifteen minute walk and Playa Blanca is beautiful. The water park was ok, nothing special but it is free and worth a visit if you are interested. I would definitely visit the area again but not this hotel, it was definitely not four star quality or service. If you are paying for and expect four star, like we did, do not go.

HotelesLopez, from the Headoffice Hoteles Lopez Group at Hotel Club Playa Blanca, responded to this review, November 5, 2012
Dear guest of the Club Playa Blanca Hotel,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review, and for your valuable feedback.

We are sorry to learn that you have not entirely enjoyed your holiday with us, and that you were not happy with some of the hotels services and faciltites.
We always strive to deliver the best possible service to our guests, and we have of course forwarded your comments to the respective hotel departments in order to have a look into the issues.

We are glad to inform you that we are already working to improve the garden light situation, and that we are in the process of gradually improving all areas of the hotel, but this does take some time, due to it´s size.
All the hotel rooms are cleaned at least 5 times a week, and the public areas are cleaned daily. As the hotel is located in an area with a lot of wind and sand, and as the gardens are surrounding all the bungalows, it might unfortunately be possible that dust and small insects will enter the rooms between cleaning schedules.

The Resort has recently undertaken various changes in the management, and I do hope that on a future visit to Lanzarote you would allow us to demonstrate to you improved high standards of service and facilities.

Thanking you again for your visit and sending our best regards from the Canary Islands,

The Management of the Hoteles Lopez Group

Firstly, I would like to say that I am a teenager writing this review. Please take into consideration my bad English skills!

The value for money was brilliant! We are currently low on money so we didn't plan on spending a lot. We were worried that this wouldn't be great considering the price but it was well worth it!

We had a two bedroom bungalow in which I offered to sleep on the sofa... I slept very well still. Everyone else seemed okay with their sleep. In the evening we were worried about the entertainment being too loud because we were based pretty close to the pool area and bars but their was not a sound.

The bungalows were immaculate. Nothing else to really say about these. We were surprised to find that there was no mess from cats around because there were a lot of cats around the complex.

Location was great, easy 5 minutes walk to the bus stop and a 10 minute walk to the shops and beach! The water park is about 15 minutes walk away, however buses are provided free of charge to the beach and water park.

The rooms are great! A safe is offered for a small price to keep your valuables secure. Didn't spend much time in the bungalow because the weather was great!

Maids kept our room very neat and clean. Replaced the towels only when we put them in the bath (As stated on a sign).

Now to the reason a teenager is writing a review. I met a girl here, she was beautiful... I kept trying to get myself to talk to her but something about her just would not let me! It was her birthday on Halloween. If you know her, please show her this!

If you have any questions or you are the beautiful girl that made my holiday special please contact me at: idkybily@live.co.uk

Room Tip: All very good, I have heard from people who have stayed the other side of the complex.

After falling in love with Playa Blanca 15 years ago we have returned many times staying in some of the top hotels in Playa Blanca! Now returning after an absence of 5 years wi a family of 5 and a restricted budget we decided on the Club Playa Blanca! After reading reviews we were a little worried but need not have been because this hotel is a little gem on the outskirts of Playa Blanca. The all inclusive food is on par with any other hotel we have stayed in. The staff were hard working and the restuarant was always clean and tidy! The Restuarant Manager always had time to say hello and my little boy fell in love with him and was always eager to see his "friend", which made dining even more of a pleasure, Tuesay night being our favourite night. The pool area was clean and tidy and whatever time you arrived there was always free sunbeds. The food at the pool bar is a great idea and the children loved it! But if burger, sausage and chips is not for you the restuarant was open! It may now be time to change the aging sunbeds! My son had an accident at hotel and the Lifeguard was fantastic and a great help. The ambulance was there in minutes and the local hospital was immaculate and very efficient and thorough! The Manager was there to help and arrange taxis at no cost to ourselves and even after a few days was still enquiring after our son. Likewise the lifeguard checked on his welbeing daily for the rest of our holiday! The watermark was free and our kids aged 9, 7 & 3 loved it. It's only 5 minutes by bus and when you get there the all inclusive facility is available. A bit of a tip if you need to go to the supermarket catch the bus to the waterpark, have a drink, shop at the next door supermarket and catch the next bus back. Would not like to stay in a hotel adjoining a waterpark but a five minute trip is perfect. The entertainment team were brilliant day and night and our two youngest loved the kids club and mini disco and are still singing the songs and dancing back at home! The kids club staff were very professional and we had no worries leaving our children with them. The rooms are very clean, tidy and spacious and the two bedrooms were perfect for a family of 5. The airconditioning was spot on. One downside the pool bar could do with more staff or self serve taps like the Restuarant. The best things about this hotel are the staff from the Manager to the Cleaners. All very friendly and are what make this hotel! If you have booked or are thinking of booking, for the money it is a little gem in paradise! We are already missing the Club Playa Blanca and hope to return in the future! The Gurney Five Xx

We returned last night from a week at Club Playa Blanca and are missing it already! We had a brilliant time and loved this hotel. It is our 4th year in the resort but first time at this hotel and we were very impressed. The food was excellent, everywhere was really clean and the staff worked very hard to make sure everything ran well.
The entertainment was great for the children and the team did their best in several different languages and a mixed aged audience. We visited the aqua park twice and used the courtesy beach bus twice which was very welcome. It was also great to be able to hire big pool towels too. There were lots of things which added up to make this a great holiday - especially for the price.
