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.

Excellent family holiday
This was our first Holiday Village holiday and what a great hotel to start with. I don't understand the negative reviews from some people, I could not fault this place at all, absolutely loved it. So much to do, beautiful location overlooking beautiful beach and food was excellent. So many different choices of food to eat we were never stuck for choice, even our fussy boys loved the food. Our room was always cleaned to a very high standard and was a lovely room with excellent views. Service was excellent from the maids to the waiters to the Kids Club reps, I do not have a negative thing to say, absolutely loved it and so sad to be back home.More

I came to this hotel as a family of 4 n absolutely loved it. The reps the food the room was all exceptional. Its close to the shops the beach. They really catered to the fact i had a baby and the kids entertainers really made an effort. Evening entertainment was always good and all staff we're friendly. I would 100% go back here! ðMore
This hotel was disappointing after going to our first HV in Ibiza last year. Firstly, the good points. Room and location are really good. Day time entertainment and staff are excellent. Now the disappointing aspects - the situation with the sun beds (as mentioned throughout the review) is a joke. If you don't go down and queue for a sunbed by 7.30am, you will not get one for the whole day!. This is the situation on all three pool. entertainment in the evening is poor. The reps try really hard, but they are the same ones that have been working the previous 10 hours in the day. Unfortunately, the quality of the evening entertainment will leave you somewhat disappointed.More

A good holiday!
Stayed 16-30 July for 2 weeks as a family of four. The location of the hotel is fantastic, with great sea views only a couple of minutes walk from a beautiful beach and not far from the port/ centre of Playa Blanca. Our apartment (48B) was in a really good location close to all facilities (the complex is vast) but not too noisy. The apartments are spacious, modern and well furnished although our air conditioning failed virtually every day and the issue was never resolved meaning it was very warm at night and uncomfortable to sleep. The food was in our opinion slightly disappointing in terms of quality and variety compared to our previous AI experiences (including other HV's). Perhaps something like themed nights could be introduced to add a little variety? The visit to the Tavern on the Sea though was a highlight, both the food and service received were excellent. We decided not to get involved with the whole sunbed madness that goes on at this hotel. There were plenty of other pools to use where space was available and this worked for us. However for those who want to be around the main pool to take part in the activities, the way the sunbed situation was managed (or should I say not managed) was clearly annoying a lot of people. The hotel may advertise a policy but there was no evidence of this being enforced. Our children loved the kids club activities, football academy and evening kids entertainment which were really well organised and run. Big thank you especially to Chantal, Calum, Dave, Jamie, Amy, Lauren and Lloyd and to all of the FC team for their incredible energy, effort and enthusiasm shown throughout our stay. We were surprised that the hotel itself didn't provide more of the adult entertainment (only 1 act during our stay) and the Blue Moon lounge/stage area is small dark, dingy and the acoustics not good at all. Makes the job the FC team did even more impressive. For those who want to explore Lanzarote itself, highly recommend a trip to Timanfaya National Park, Rancho Texas Park, Papagayo beach & Puerto del Carmen. Overall a good hotel and an enjoyable family holiday.More

Visited this resort as a family of 10. Out of our party 2 were disabled using mobility scooter and a wheelchair. Being sold this resort as wheelchair friendly we were disappointed to find No ground floor accomidation. A flight of 7 steps upto your room with a 35kg scooter I dont think so. Agreed the resort has ramps, but so steep even walking upand down they are a danger. Especially without rails. Rooms we really good clean but needed rails in bathroom as floor get very wet from shower screen not being big enough. Pool side was great for kids. Sunbed issue was shocking 6:30 queue for a bed or forget it for the day. Restaurant was great food was varied and well cooked. Entertainment in blue moon bar was okay. The oustide area was filthy needed a good clean. Dirty ashtrays from night before. Cigarette ends all over the floor. Pool table being broken by children refusing to pay the one euro to play. Placing plastic cups in pockets. Denying others. To top it all off our room was broken into and items were stolen. Hotel informed us they needed to do an investigation which is fine. Two days later were told nothong no more tney could do. No mention of a police report. Unbeknown to me the two rooms next to ours were also broken into with items stolen. Overall a disappointing holiday. More
