“Great family holiday”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

We booked direct with the hotel and got an all inclusive package - first time we have done this. It was extremely cheap and I thought we might be disappointed. In fact the hotel was very clean and the rooms were spacious (I like a soft bed so I found the matresses a bit firm), the grounds are beautifully kept and all the staff worked their socks off to make sure we had a great time. Food and drink was available from 8am till 11pm which was great as we had 10 children in our party along with 10 adults including grandparents. There was a range of traditional British fare as well as Canarian alternatives. We went out for a couple of meals which, although good, made us realise how much we were saving by going for the package. We had a minor problem with our villa and were immediately offered alternative accommodation when we asked about it at reception. One tip, if you are travelling independently it is as cheap to hire a car at the airport and keep it for a week as it is to take a taxi (E40 each way). We went out and about and saw all the sights as well as lying by the pool. The entertainments were good fun and the staff made sure the kids had a good time. It would have been nice to see a few more customers saying thank you in the restaurant!

Room Tip: We got muddled when booking and took two bungalows with twin rooms, our friends got a family villa.

well, my husband and I returned to this hotel again this year but as a family (previously as a couple), wasn't sure what the kids would make of it as it was their first holiday abroad.......they had a fantastic time!! my mum came with us too and it was also her first sun holiday, so it goes to show that this hotel caters for all ages!! we all joined in the daytime activities, the entertainers are just great, always a smile on their face making your holiday special, all the staff are friendly and they all work very very hard, the place is kept clean and tidy, always someone cleaning somewhere!! the food is varied and even for fussy eaters its brill. (even if you do end up eating chips and cake all week like my son.....ah well we were on holiday!!) all in all a great holiday, with a 10 min walk to playa blanca and its shops etc..... we would return again but think its time to try somewhere different next year!! we loved it, i hope this review helps!!

stayed there in october 2011. was met by very friendly receptionist who recommended we eat before we booked in as the restaraunt was closing soon. thought this was quite thoughtful.
generally throughout the week the staff were very helpful and friendly. although i wasn't there with children the entertainment staff at the pool area did a great job in trying to involve the children and adults alike.
our room was large, kept clean but the aircon was a bit temperamental. might just have been me misunderstanding how it worked though. the surrounding gardens and environment were well kept. the food was good some nights but average on others. as it was self service i never went hungry. as we didn't stay in at night i cant grade the evening entertainment. overall it was a great hotel with friendly staff. would quite happily go back. was close to the town too

Just returned from a week at this hotel. Def kid friendly with a very hard working staff. This is the second time we have done all inclusive which definately is not for us. Plenty selection of foods but yip it does become repetitive and I am fussy. When your used to going out for a nice meal on holiday, it's totally diff to AI. It's like going into a school dinner hall to get fed. Local drinks are bearable for first few days. Lovely bungalows, clean, spacious and air conditioning working. Staff pleasant and location not too far out.. It's just if All Inclusive is for you or not?

Stayed in the october holiday and 2 adults 3 children cost £1400 for the week all inclusive, nice food, fair drinks, clean and spacious rooms, friendly and informative staff, a few roaches but this is a general canarian problem you always see them about, bit of a faff to pay deposits for remotes but you get the money back so its not so bad

Loads of activities and brilliant childrens entertainment

Good location and great alue for money

Room Tip: Ask for one nearish to the complex or its bit of a trek

we booked to go sister hotel rio when we arrived we were told we was going to club playa blanca as there was no room for us we was disappointed but didnt get a choice as taxi was outside. club looked nice pool was cleaned only once all week so it was dirty after a couple of days. staff shortages in all areas so food was poor long waits at the bar and the entertainment for adults round the pool stopped due to not enough staff. at the evening they either entertained the children and the adults got none or the adults got entertainment and the children got none. do not go to this hotel it is not 4 star. when you book allocation on arrive you take a chance and its cheaper but when you book a certain hotel and pay full price you expect to get what you payed for i have put in a complaint and waiting on there reply.

HLCPB, Gerente at Hotel Club Playa Blanca, responded to this review, 14 October 2011
We're sorry for the poor impression this customer had of our hotel. We would like to stress that pools and surrounding areas are cleaned daily, indeed, from 7,30 to 9,30 am and then several times during the day some staff goes around the area. Restaurant, kitchen and all departments are sufficiently staffed, at normal trade levels. We haven't had a food complaint for months. We offer a fair variety of freshly cooked food, show cooking at b'fast lunch and dinner, salads, pastry, ice creams..... an excellent value for money. The entertainment team changed from one week to the next so there might have been some slight disruption with the program, but it was a matter of two days to adapt the new team, nothing realy remarkable. We would be happy to have a chance to welcome you again and make you enjoy better our hospitality.
