We stayeded at Cortijo Blanco for 10 nights in August this year and were really pleased with our time there!! The complex it's self is immaculatly clean and tidy, everyday we saw maids, gardeners, cleaners ect going about there buisness throughly. Our group consisted of myself and partner and 2 children... one age 5 the other 20 months. There are 3 pools at the complex, the largest is a big, deep pool not really suitable for small kids, the second (our favourite) was shallow enough for my toddler to walk in and both he and his big sister could play safely while we watched form the sunloungers (of which there were always plenty) the third pool was across a the road next to another block of aparments attatched to the hotel.... this was smaller and great for families... we went there a few times when we wanted to swim all together.
The food was lovely, always a good choice of meat (some lovely caverys) pasta, chips, potatoes and veg, something for the kids everyday, lovely soups, breads and salads... the puddings were great too! Inbetween the main resturant hours they open the small end of the eatery as a snack bar and serve things like chips, burgers and sausage (and things leftover from the previuos meal) and they have a toastie machine for you to build and make your own (very popular!!) all foo had to be eaten inside (good ideal actually as it helped the grounds stay beautifully clean) The drinks were fine, nice beer (san Miguel) few good cocktails (although really sweet!) and lots of spirits to choose from (HUGE measures!! #hangover!!) the bar staff amd resturant staff are great... they make such a fuss ovet the kids which is nice.
The best thing about this hotle is the Animation Team... Rebeca, Sara, Will and Chris, they rock!! the 2 women who do the kids section are great with the little ones. The have 4 activities on for the kids every day... golf bowls, football, darts, water games, shuffle board, face and t-shirt painting ect. theres also 4 activities a day for adults too... killer pool/darts, cross-bow, bowls, skittles ect... lots of fun!! Mini Club is 8.30 every night with all the songs we love to hate including Chi Chi Wa...(groan!) much fun!! Kids AND adults get certificates presented on stage for activities won during the day and they put on a different show (kareoke, quiz, party night) and have outside entertainment (magic act, Flamenco, Take That tribute) every night plus cash bingo!!
Our room was good, basic but fine. Cleaned each day and clean sheets and towels left.
OVERALL we had a fab time and would deffo go back if we could get a good deal next year... if you have a young family and are looking for a fun holiday with nice food and pleanty to drink then GO!! What you waiting for??! x
