Pools, a splash park, a bumper activities list, and loads of restaurants – this place has got the lot. It’s right on the beach, too.
This beachfront hotel ticks all the right boxes, with a great pool scene, 5 restaurants and a giant Aerial Adventure course. There are sports like kayaking, tennis and football as well.
Apartments received a makeover for summer 2014, so they’re in tip-top condition. They’re nice and big, too, with a lounge, kitchenette and outside space.

Not just for kids.
We don't go until mid-November, and will submit a proper review upon our return. However, with regard to the previous comment regarding unsuitability for couples, just wanted to point something out. Many people seem to be unaware that although from May-Oct the place is taken over by First Choice and run as a Holiday Village (so clearly more suited to families), from Nov-Apr it is actually hotel-run and is a very different, quieter environment. Obviously, there will still be some children around, but certainly not as many (especially during term-time). We are not bothered about entertainment or adult-only areas, and have chosen it on the basis of: proximity to resort-centre, on a gorgeous beach, spacious refurbished accommodation (of which we have booked superior - which includes own sunbeds), attractive grounds & pools, amazing views, all inclusive (with a choice of 5 restaurants - plus self-catering facilities in the apartments), excellent reviews for food/drinks/service/location - and great price! We looked at everywhere else in Playa Blanca (especially Timanfaya Palace & Rubicon Palace) but overall considered this the best option. Hopefully we will still feel the same on our return! But we have every confidence we are going to love it :)) . (N.B. - Sorry, had to put date of travel as Nov.14 and have put 4 stars, so far).More

Definately not for couples
apart from the fact there is no adult only areas this was a fantastic holiday. The resort is clean and the staff work exceedingly hard keeping it in this state. I had rad the reviews before we went and went with an open mind. One review before we left said at breakfast and lunch it was like feeding time at the zoo and I felt this was harsh, however on seeing it for myself I no longer feel like that, it was an accurate description it was like dodgems every meal time dodging the children that were running amok. The location is excellent a lovely walk into the town which has got enough bars, restaurants and shops. The entertainment staff do an excellent job but only seem to want to keep the kids happy and they definately play favourites. the sunbed saga was laughable watching grown men nearly coming to blows because they could not get their spot - SAD. Would I go again - if they had an adult area yes, if not then maybe not. They are missing a trick the Green and Grill is an excellent area at night to have an adult open space.More

Just got back from having a great time. Complex had all that you could want. Apartment was clean and spacious. Food was up there with some of the best I have had, plenty of choice, Animation team were always on the go. We were in the main entertainment area at 11.30 p.m. and one of the girls from the team was still entertaining one of the little lads, nothing seemed too much for them, they really do look after the kiddies. As for the sun loungers we managed to find one each day,there are loads just at the side of the main pool and you can still look and listen to poolside entertainment. Thanks for a great time.More

We returned to this Holiday village for a second time this year and it was just as good although it was August so pretty busy!!! I would not go so far as to say that my husband and I would go as just a couple but it is amazing for a family holiday. There are four Restaurants to go to, although the Buffet is sufficient on its own, there is so much to choose from! I like the idea of a lower buffet too so that the children can help themselves to food. The pools are lovely and the complex is also right on the beach so it's easy to go to either! Only complaint is the towels as usual!!!!! There are notices to say any towels left on sunbeds will be removed, but even by breakfast the beds are full of towels!More
