Reviewed March 19, 2013

a family group of us stayed here at the weekend 15th to 18th march 2013 about an hour away from palma airport transfers were easy to sort the hotel itself was clean enough so were the beds had no problem with the rooms. the staff are freindly enough we stayed on an all inclusive basis which only runs from 10am til 10pm if you go to the bar at 10.01pm you will not be served unless you pay for your drinks all inclusive meals comprised of breakfast lunch and dinner with no snacks in between and a very limited selection. I am not a fussy eater i will eat almost anything but it was the same food for lunch and dinner and the food may look cooked but PLEASE check it properly as i cut into some chicken that i was enjoying but this was raw in the middle with blood pouring from it. on the day of departure your room must be vacated by 12 noon and your all inclusive band gets cut off regardless of what time you leave and there is no safe place to leave your luggage to allow you to go for a wander apart from behind reception which is left unlocked and a lot of the time unmanned as its the same person that works reception that works behind the bar. the hotel caters more for germans as the entire top floor is owned by germans with a german owner. the pool outside i would not step foot in as this is disgusting and is never cleaned and has god knows what floating in it. we got a taxi from the hotel to cala millor a livlier resort with more to do and more shops to browse and we found a great resturaunt called TAPAS DE SA CALETA owned by pepe and his lovely family you will not get better food and service anywhere in this part of mallorca and i would urge anyone staying in the area to go for a meal there its on passeig maritim, 3 placa eureka and looks out onto the cala millor beach SUPERB FOOD and SUPERB SERVICE even if the food in your hotel is great its worth a walk along to the resturaunt. there are other hotels in the area so have a good look before booking this hotel if you have toddlers or young children the upper floor balconies are no good as there is a lot of space in between the very shaky bars which a young child or toddler could easily fit through would never stay at this hotel again

Room Tip: if you want to choose a good room with a toddler or baby then floor 1 is best of your a couple with...

My family and I stayed here in august last year and can honestly say I've never stayed anywhere that was so bad. We weren't expecting 5 star treatment for 2 star prices as some seem to think on here, but even a budget holiday you'd expect to have some standards. The hotel itself is falling apart, the railings on our balcony were actually plastic drainpipes held into the wall with some sort of rubber putty. Our room didn't look like it had been cleaned at all before our arrival. The flagpoles outside the main entrance look like they're going to topple over at any minute. The main pool was green with algae and we never once seen it being treated with chlorine. The food I wouldn't feed to my dog and its every man for himself as far as getting a plate, food and table. We spent a lot of our spending money eating out as our six year old cried at the thought of having to eat in the restaurant. The hotel staff only spoke English when they were taking your money off you and could never seem to help when you asked for anything.
The bar prices changed sporadically and the service was poor.
On our final night we were told we couldn't rent the room again so we had to leave our bags in an empty UNLOCKED hotel room until our transfer arrived, on entering we discovered the shower was unusable and the toilet was blocked.
This was the final straw so we took our bags back down and went to complain and to tell the staff how bad our stay was, of course they didn't speak any English.
The resort itself is nice, close to two lovely beaches and plenty to do excursion wise but the other local hotels are just as cheap as this place and talking to some people around the resort much nicer.
AVOID.

Afteer reading all the reviews , i was really concerned. Itwas a great holiday and im going back. People want posh at a cheap price.The locationwas lovely and all the ameties were close by. Lots of things to do too. Some people treat the hotel staff with disrespect ehich is very sad, as they work long hours.

Decided to go away for Christmas and New Year I would normally have checked tripadvisor but for some reason did not. I was so glad I didn't after seeing the reviews following my booking.
Hotel Player Blanca is a normal 2star resort hotel. Clean - tidy - lovely staff - and average food
My conclusion on previous review is people paying 2star prices and expecting 5star facilities.
The staff were really lovely very helpfull even encouraging me to speak spannish.

We booked our holiday in playa Blanca on line so didn't expect miracles, but nobody told us that we won't be staying in this hotel but in annex across the road and that was just awful!!! More like a student accommodation.., we made a complain, but they said its the room we paid for.We could use the swimming pool and all our meals were at Play Blanca.The food was fine, everything you would expect from 3 star hotel.Location of the hotel is great, very close to the centre and to the beach.

A long way from the airport but caught 2 buses, one into Palma and another out to Sa Coma - about 11 Euro altogether so pretty good! Buses don't run from the hotel on Sunday (Domingos) so be careful - cheaper to book a transfer than taxi.

Room seemed OK until sheet was pulled back - one dirty pillowcase, an unrecognisable insect and an earwig in the bed PLUS huge, bloody stain on one mattress, yuk.... they moved us to the room next door which was fine, thank you. The room was cleaned every day.

All Inclusive so dreaded band was worn at all times. Drinks fine, even though served in plastic cups. Food was... awful. Not much choice, dried out food and burnt bacon in the mornings - I would think that you would need no culinary skills whatsoever to work in the kitchen. Stick to the crusty bread and eat fried eggs on toast, fruit and ice cream pots, that's what I would recommend.

This was a little jaunt between Xmas and New Year with us chasing some light and warmth. a lot of the other hotels and shops were closed, that's fine, it's not what we went for. It was cheap, clean and basic but if you have a sense of humour, and for the money, very good value, I would say.

Even though all your reviews are bad, I found this hotel enjoyable! The pools are abit mucky so is the room, but to be honest you don't spend a lot of time in the room anyway apart from to sleep. And if you really don't want to go in the pool it is a nice walk down to the beach and there is a banana boat to keep the kids happy. The foods nice and satisfying and there is plenty to eat. The staff are nice and always try to make you laugh. There's ping pong table, snooker tables and mini golf around the hotel. Especially on a night sitting round the pool playing card games is nice and very relaxing. So anything I found this hotel excellent even if its not very clean, I would go again.
