“Clean but Basic”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Quite a good location, the food was average but you could always find something to eat
Very close to the town centre and a short walk to the marina. Plenty of buses that were very cheap.Nice big terrace, it was lovely and quiet until for about two night a lot of spanish arrived, the management and staff complained about them it seemed they came very cheaply on a regular basis, once they had gone it was all nice and quiet again. You get what you pay for.

We stayed here in October a family of 7 - 6 adults and 1 child age ranging from 3 to 64. Booked all inclusive through Travel republic and also booked transfers which were brilliant. The apartments were known as Sun Royal Apartments at the time, have separate bedrooms, kitchen lounge fridge and sink, balcony and bathroom..
Quite a walk from the beach but the apartments were clean and spacious. Food plentiful and varied.
Pools were immaculately clean and were quieter nearer the foyer. Evening entertainment in the main bar for children and some daytime entertainment.
Within walking distance of the town and 2 beaches and a little further on the marina 1 way and the port the other. Plenty of shops in the town. We had a great holiday and loved Playa Blanca. Weather warm in October. Would recommend the apartments for a great family holiday - quiet enough for older family members but enough to do in the evenings. We needed medical care whilst on holiday and there is a local hospital approximately 1/2 mile away down the main road to the back of the hotel - presented our EHIC card and passport and did not have to pay any fees or claim on our travel insurance. Lots of places to go from here the Canaries have great bus links and you can travel to Fuerteventura from the port.

My husband and I returned from Sun Royal last week after a 1 week all inclusive stay and couldn't fault the hotel at all. The rooms were a great size and had everything you would need if you were self catering. The food was fab- fish and meat stations,pasta and rice dishes,salad bar and kids station. Always something different and wine and beer on tap for all inclusive.the bar had a tv for those who watch sports,we never had to wait to be served for long and no the pool bar isn't open yet but the main bar is a 2 second walk! We found all the staff friendly and helpful,the pools were clean,plenty of sun beds and the cleaners were in nearly every day.
For those with children there is a kids disco,we went for a lovely walk down to the beach front every evening where there are nice bars and shops to potter around in.
My husband used the gym which is in the sister hotel just behind and it had pretty much everything you would need but also if you need a gym there is a great one down on the sea front he used which is very reasonable in price.
For a 3* hotel we had no complaints and for the price you pay we were very impressed. I'm not sure what people are complaining about,I know not everybody has the same standards but at the end of the day if you want a 5* hotel with immaculate facilities don't go to a 3* and then complain about everything in a review.
We met some lovely people and will definitely recommend the sun royal to friends as well as return ourselves next year.

Room Tip: We were in a nice room overlooking the pool area 854

Me and my husband just come back on Sunday from Lanzarote after spending 6 nights in this hotel. We have to say that the staff at the hotel are so polite and helpful. We had all inclusive and the food was nice . The apartments are very spacious and the they have 2 pools for adults and one for little children. This hotel is child friendly and we will come back with our children as soon as possible for another holiday . We had an amazing time.

My friend and 1 have just arrived back last night from a week in Sun Royal, We went for a week to relax and do nothing, I week all inclusive, cant fault hotel excellent value for money, (its a 3 star hotel so don't except 5 star facilities) defiantly a family hotel, Reception, on arrival excellent, arrived late at night, pack up was ready for us within half hour, very pleasant staff that checked us in, explained every thing that you needed to know, rooms clean, apartment spacious, good facilities and equipped , 2 mega balcony's. Pool area well set out, not cramped, plenty of sunbeds. Onsite facilities, mini supermarket, laundrette, 2 large pools, cyber café, table tennis, tennis court, kids play areas. Food was very good throughout the whole week, everyday there was a variety of food, something for everyone, loved every meal, (however be aware if you are a fish and chips person you will struggle) very hard working restaurant staff, food always hot and never ran out or waiting for refilling even if you were last in.
Check out painless too, check out at 12, not leaving till 5 dead simple store room for cases, excellent facilities for shower.

My wife and I used to use Sun Park next door but due to its changeover to long stay clients we decided to use Sun Royal as it's very similar in design.
We have no complaints whatsoever. The apartments are the same as Sun Park so we knew what we were getting.
The staff were very polite and helpful and a couple of minor faults were corrected within an hour of notifying reception.
We were accommodation only so I can't comment on the restaurant side of things but British folk I spoke to seemed happy with the food and service although they did comment that maybe a little more imagination regarding British tastes could have been used but they did'nt complain.
The apartments were adequate for what we need.
The only downside for us is the fact that my wife is disabled and wheelchair bound and this was where we found the difference between Sun Park and Sun Royal.
The lift in Sun Park is inside reception whereas in Sun Royal it's outside against the pool and we had to go up and down steps which is'nt easy for the disabled.
Still, I've got my eye on the apartment I want next time which does'nt involve climbing steps, that obviously means I'll go back to Sun Royal.

just come back from an all inclusive 1 week stay at this hotel.good experience as i am very fussy.clean rooms comfortable beds food varied everyday and something for everyone. staff very pleasant and so hard working except for a lady on reception .couldnt fault the hotel .the only problem for me the entertainment on night time was very lacking especially as places to drink were 20 min walk away. overall good hotel would go back again.

Room Tip: second floor with balconys seem the best around the back pool
