Not for couples
First impressions the hotel is very nice, check in was quick and reception staff friendly, we were given a free room upgrade which was very nice.The food is good they serve a lot of fish here. the one gripe i do have with the restaurant is never any tea spoons to stir your drink you have to use your knife or fork. The main pool is a sea water pool,it is in a very bad state of repair loads of tiles missing and an accident waiting to happen. You can always get a sunbed even though the towel brigade is in full force. We were here for 2 weeks and a week in the piano bar was enough, we went out the second week to the Irish bar they have entertainment 6 nights a week . when i booked this hotel i was well aware they catered for families, was not concerned as there was an adult only restaurant to eat in. this option was not there when we arrived ,we had to eat every meal with screaming children around us for the whole 2 weeks and i have never in all my time travelling seen so many pushchairs in a hotel restaurant they should seriously have a buggy park And i am not adverse to children i have 6 grandchildren, The young children love daisy and the pirate ship with the slide is excellent for them to play on,To sum this hotel up i would not return here there is not enough to do outside the hotel.Playa blanca is a lovely resort and would return to the resort its self. Please bear in mind this is my opinion of this hotel, we all like different things.More
Fabulous time, would definitely book again
Visited during September 14, hotel was great. Travelled with 4 adults & 2 children under 3, facilities for all were superb. Kids pools & play areas kept children amused throughout. Food was high quality & varied. Would recommend & will definitely return :-)More
Great hotel just lacked location
Having read reviews on this hotel me and my girlfriend decided to book in and stayed from the 7th-14th September. The hotel itself is fantastic, the decor, service, rooms and cleanliness I could not fault. There are many pics of flies,cracked paint etc on this site but in my opinion those people must go out seeking out every crack and corner. There were no flies, no bites and knowhere that the hotel looked uncared for. We arrived late but the receptionist was very helpful and offered us our glass of cava. We were then directed to our room, which was only a 200 meter walk away. The room was great (5017), spacious and we asked for our sea view room with a balcony which is what we got looking straight over to fuertaventura. The room was cleaned daily, towels replaced and floors cleaned... (one day our floor was covered with sand, the next day...not a grain in sight!) There was never an issue with noise at all, wether or not it's because we booked after the school holidays i'm not sure. There was a mini bar but the prices were a little steep... but we were on AI so we just drank at the bars. The pools were great, never really busy and sunbeds aplenty... although you still get people reserving them in the early morning even though you recieve a polite letter when you arrive advising you not to! The food was great, varied choice and constantly replaced. They cook some of the food in front of you so if you want a freshly cooked pork chop or steak you can get it off the grill. It got a little bit reptitive towards the end of the week in regards to choice... but octopus, rabbit, stewed steak isn't your normal buffet! On the all inclusive we had the chance to use 3 of the restuarants. The asian restaurant was great, quick service and great food. The Italian was disappointing.. the meat was just fat and the desserts were not what they meant to be. The entertainment for kids was ok, however i do think there needs to be a closing time for kids entertainment and maybe offer some adult entertainment say after 10pm. The all inclusive free drinks were ok and the spirits are free poured so keep you merry, however I was very disappointed at the cocktails. All inclusive includes about half of the cocktails from the menu, which everyone loves on a holiday. However I ordered my girlfriend a mojito which to my disappointment came from a pre-mixed bottle (which you could buy at the local shop for about 5 euros a litre). Then the person next to me ordered the same but because they were on the privlege service their cocktail was created freshly in front of them... ours looked like pool water with dregs of mint whilst the privlege one looked like a cocktail should. Knowhere on the booking or offer did it say cocktails would be differant. The location of the hotel for us as a couple wasn't fantastic we didn't want somewhere next to loud nightlife... but this wasn't really near any nightlife. To reach the nearest strip it was about a 25 minute walk or 4 euros by taxi... but the majority of places on the strip were restuarants with around 2-3 bars in between. The place could be vastly improved by simply placing another 4-5 bars on the front. Good points. Great hotel decor, scenary and rooms. Great service and cleanliness. Great choice of food. Large and spacious bar areas. Nice large pools with plenty of space. Bad points. Hotel location. Level of bar service (cocktails and lacked service with a smile until you tipped) compared to privlege. Wi-fi signal (only works in the main reception). Bar closing times (12.30-1am) your on holiday and it's a decent walk to the next bar on the coast. It would be nice if they at least offered an adults only option until late. In need of adults entertainment and bar. Great for families with young children and couples who simply want to hang around the pool and be in bed early. Not great for couples or families who would like a little night life. (Plenty of trips offered but they were quite expensive and we couldnt afford that much after the cost of the holiday).More

Lovely place, wifi can be tricky.
Lovely hotel with friendly staff and the food is great. There is plenty to do here, whether it be chilling out by the pool or getting involved with the activities. The wifi can be tricky to get on. In the end I typed 188.8.131.52 into the address bar in Safari (iOS) device and that took me to a login page, where I typed in the username and password that I collected from reception. Once it accepts this I could access the net no problem from the Piano bar and certain other parts of the hotel, although the piano bar and reception area seem to be the best area for wifi reception.More
