We travelled to club playa blanca (family of 4) and some friends (also family of 4). Upon booking with Thomas cook we asked for adjacent rooms and pool view we also said that it will be one of the children's birthdays whilst we were (was not acknowledged). We arrived at the hotel at 1pm and told that our rooms wouldn't be ready until 3 but we could go and have dinner in the restaurant. When our rooms were ready they were adjacent but were not pool view, the rooms (2 bedrooms) were large and clean, the maid came every day except Thursdays due to main change over day.
The complex itself was clean and tidy and someone was always around cleaning, the food was fine in both the pool bar and restaurant. The glasses were small even at night, our first week we asked for big beer and were given large glasses but then the barman was told to only serve big beer to half boarders and all inclusives were to be given small glasses, the majority of nights there was only one barman on to serve both bars, there was no self service tap for beers which would have made things easier.
The staff in the restaurant were polite and tidied away as soon as you were finished. The entertainment staff were friendly and the children and adults enjoyed the activities, the evening entertainment was cheesy but funny. The pool was very cold, unusually cold and not always clean, the fountain was not on for most of our time there and the jacuzzi didn't work our whole holiday.
We used the water park once at the sister hotel which was tiny and just seemed to be shoved at the back of the hotel (don't let the pictures in the brochure fool you into thinking its bigger than it is), there was plenty of land to the right of the water park so it could be made bigger and better.
We never had a problem getting sun loungers and didn't have to get up early to reserve beds which was good, there were alot of older French holiday makers who were very rude especially at meal times and on one occasion my friends daughter was getting something to eat and one French gentleman thought it was ok to remove towels on the beds so he could sit where his group wanted to although there were plenty of beds around the pool area.
Overall we did have a good time but won't be returning.
