“Never Again !”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2011

We booked Parques Casa Blanca for the Hotel facilities advertised , however when we arrived we found that the Leisure facilities were closed ,the Spa was closed , the restaurant was closed , no pool towels provided , in fact the entire description was completely misleading ! Our group of 16 adults who had traveled from Australia, U.S and Ireland to meet up for a family reunion , were very disappointed . It felt more like a retirement home than a Hotel. The only saving grace was the poolside bar managed by Derek and his wife Cecilia and their very friendly staff , who just opened the day we arrived, June 22nd 2011 . The nearest beach is a mile away ! We wont be going back !!!

We stayed at the Parques Casablanca with our 2 boys (9 and 4) for 1 week in August 2009. Overall we had a great week in a lovely location and are considering going back next year.

Our apartment was modern, clean and very well equipped with air con in all rooms. We found the apartments on the Hoseasons website then booked direct with the complex (thus saved money). From what we could gather once we arrived some of the apartments are privately owned and rented out and some are owned by the company who run the resort which would explain why the rooms were well equipped.

The pool is the main communal area and is great for kids - our youngest loved the smaller shallow pool at the top whilst our eldest made friends playing in the bottom pool. Our only gripe about the pool area is that it could do with a few more sunbeds - we had 2 sunbeds on our balcony which we had to take down to the pool on 2 occasions as there were no sunbeds left by the time we went down (11ish) and I refuse to be one of those selfish people who "reserve" sunbeds using towels before breakfast.

In terms of other facilities on site there is a restaurant which doesn't cater for families thus isn't busy / open all the time. The spa and indoor pool are currently under construction and from what we saw through the window will be nice when finished but their non availability made no odds to our enjoyment of the week.

We would say that hiring a car is a must - La Fustera, which is the small town where the apartments are situated is lovely but small - Moraira is only a 15 min drive and is full of lovely restaurants - we managed to find lots which had a menu which catered for picky kids and us without the kids having burger and chips all the time.

There are no kids playgrounds / clubs / entertainment etc, our boys were happy playing in the pool but if you are used to staying somewhere lively with lots of pre planned things for the kids to do then this isn't the place for you.

All in all a lovely week in lovely surroundings with lots of sunshine.

My wife, two children both aged 3 and myself stayed there in August 2008. I could not fault the place. Very secure. Electric shutters on windows. Excellent apartments with all the mod cons. Even a washer dryer in the bathroom. Ensuite to main bedroom. Large balcony with bads and table chairs. Wonderful pool. Posh restaurant which is no good for family eating. Small poolside bar offers snacks and drinks. Secure underground parking.
Overall a very good place to stay.
Going back again in June 2009.

Parques casablanca is an apartmenthotel booked through travel republic we decided to go there for a winter break and the reviews leant us to believe it would be just right. the reason I booked to go there was for the indoor pool and gym I had searched all over the area for this facility and this came along so we headed out. First off we were never given any directions to the place and so downloaded directions off the internet but all of them seemed different in where they placed the apartments. We thought we were in Benisa but it turned out after driving around miles and asking at shops and even the police station it was in an entirley different location. La fustera Calpe. When we got to the place eventually very late the place was deserted and we had to ring for the caretaker who kindly booked us in and showed us to our apartment. Let me say the apartment was lovely new clean all the things you want from a luxury stay self cater if I had had an indoor pool and the gym as I was expecting I would have been very happy indeed with staying here. As its low season the place was deserted apart from the odd person walking around it was like being on a show lot. No complaints about that but if you expect to see people at the moment there you won't. With regards to our unhappiness at not having the pool we expected to swim in. we were told to take it up with management but we went out before anyone seemed to be there and subsequently never seemed to see anyone who we might have engaged on the subject with. In any case you cant magic up a facility thats not there and it will be one day as they are building it. But it should not be sold on there being a pool if one inside does not exist (The outside one though lovely I risked one day in desperation for a swim and nearly froze)
My other gripe if it is one is very small we stayed for nine days and had only one set of towels.
To sum up Parques casablanca is very nice but I would not return as I think I do as well booking up private holiday rentals as I have in the past as even when we checked out there was noone around to give the keys to, in the end someone did open the door to the reception who we just handed them over to.
I hope they get their act together on these points as I am usually very tolerant of things and the area is very pretty to stay at.
