“Really a good hotel”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Really a good experience to stay at this hotel. The service is perfect. The staff does everything for the guests. The location Is perfect, close to the fantastic marina and 10
Minutes walk to the playa Blanca center. The rooms very big and ok, maybe a little old furniture wise. But fine enough. Thanks.

After holidaying for a number of years in Puerto del Carmen, this was our first stay in Playa Blanca. Situated next to the marina (with a number of restaurants, shops & bars) there is an interesting cycle path/promenade that one way takes you to the town centre and the other way towards Papagayo. The hotel itself has a very relaxed feel with a nicely furnished pool area if you don't want to venture too far. The rooms are a decent size though a sea view is not always straight ahead, as we found out, and whilst there has been some upgrading and redecorating done, this doesn't seem finished (some of the furniture is dated, the cutlery doesn't match and is of poor quality). We'd stay here again as it's a great spot, very quiet and has a good feel to it. I can't imagine us going back to PdC in a hurry!

Nov. - Dec. 2013 Two week in apartment 118; probably the best situated room we have ever had; ground floor with grass area outside, sea view and five meters from the pool. We booked a single bedroom 'Premier' apartment which had lots of space but with a bathroom that needed totally refurbishing – tired and slightly musty smelling, the bathroom towels were inadequate, tired and worn – take your own. Although we hadn't intended doing much cooking, the kitchen was a joke; two ring cooker which looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months, a toaster, microwave and coffee machine – but only one socket. Thomson advertise a 'Nespresso' coffee machine in 'Premier' apartments, for which we took our favorite capsules, only to find a 'Tassimo' unit; after complaining, this was changed after a week.

We were pleased with the apartment, but we heard people complain that some of the 'Premier' apartments had limited sea views and overlooked the street of the vacant slot on the western side. Also apartments 1 thru' 38, in the rearmost blocks were dark with limited sunshine and could be damp. The “HD Hotels and Resorts” web site offers a chance to book a particular room, not sure if you can use this if you've booked thru' Thomson.

Maid service five times week was perfunctory - a quick mop of the floors but minimal cleaning the toilet, sinks, bath and shower. No waste bin except in the kitchen, so difficult to recycle bottles etc.

Limited TV channels, although the bar had multiple sports channels, and wi-fi, advertised as 'public areas only'. We found the wi-fi worked, sometimes, in both the public areas and our room.

Breakfast as adequate but we did wonder how they differentiated between guest on 'self-catering' and 'bed and breakfast' basis. The bar was fine and the food good but the kitchen seemed to close about 7 and the bar at 9. Not much was done to publicise the resource and as a consequence was poorly used.

The Thomson brochure for 2014 shows different types of apartments available, including a 5 bedroom apartment, in an adult-only complex, this seems a bit strange.

All in all, the location, by the marina and only a leisurely stroll along the sea front walk into a town, is superb; provided you are not in an apartment bordering the street, very quiet.

What a tremendous place, especially after the refurbishment.
Obviously gets 12/10 for location, right at the beginning of the Marina Rubicon [less than 1km to far end] and very convenient for 2 super markets. Fresh bread available from reception on order
1 km from Playa Dorado which has the best swimming 'pool' on the island, 2 km to the Fuertaventura ferry.
The staff are friendly and helpful, the bar and pool area nicely upgraded, thoroughly cleaned every day, and bar staff excellent. Food and drinks reasonably priced. the bruschetta makes a perfect snack.
Access is particularly good for anyone with reduced mobility, unlike many other hotels in the area who seem to regard 'provision of disabled facilities' as merely a box to tick and pay less than token attention to the issue.
Apartments are large, beds comfortable, cooking facilities limited - but that suits me, only want breakfast really and a fridge anyway. iPod dock handy, TV only get news channels but I'm on holiday! If anyone needs a sport fix the bars in the main resort and at Playa Dorado have endless repetition of endless football
Pako - well - Pako is simply Pako - ceaseless energy and enthusiasm and entertaining.

Downside, idiots desperate to bag a spot by the pool, even to the point of preventing the staff preparing the area. Embarrassingly - all brits when we were there

Back in March, that'll be for the third time, and can't wait.

All of the public areas in this hotel have been renovated with a chic, modern twist. It's lovely. The staff are really friendly and you couldn't fault them. The location is perfect too, near the marina which is more upmarket than the rest of Playa Blanca so a really nice location to be in. The only negative would be the rooms, although huge, clean and nothing faulty - the decor is still from the 70s. So I would give excellent for the public areas and staff, but the rooms are really average.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a two story 2 bed apartment, really quiet.

This is our second year here and the hotel is now adults only. The pool, bar and reception are much nicer and more modern. The pool and bar area were fantastic, the beds around the pool were so comfy I slept for the first 2 days. The pool bar is not too expensive and the service is execellent. Thanks to Edguardo and Marco who do a fantastic job, the mojitos were gorgeous, the best I've had. We hadn't upgraded, however were pleasantly suprised to get a 2 floor 2 bedroom apartment and th space made a world of difference as we werent cramped at all. The room were spotless and were more than adequate for our needs. My only small comaplint is that the towels seemed very old and the shower/bath had a slightly fusty smell. The location is fantastic and the sunset is well worth viewing from here. You are literally on the doorstep of the marina and then a 15 minute stroll in to the main area of Playa Blanca, and the walk is lovely especially when the sun is setting. We had an excellent, relaxed holiday and will definitely return next year at the same time. Paco did a great job around the pool, although I was more into reading than anything else.
All in all a great holiday, I would recommend this and will hopefully return.

Room Tip: If you do upgrade the upper sea view rooms have a wonderful view
