This holiday was important to me, not only was it my children's (9,7,3 yrs ) first time aboard it was also a holiday to celebrate my 30th birthday. We stayed in room 308, lovely size rooms, clean, airy and just perfect for sleeping in, we had a problem with the camping bed the slats were broken, after day two we managed to get it fixed, the bathroom had a really bad urine smell coming up from the floor, instead of sending maintenance they sent maid service who I can only guess bleached the floors, it masked it for a day or so but came back.. We didn't live in the bathroom so we kind of decided to live with it.. There was always daily maid service which was nice as I could never make the beds as good as our cleaner did.. The food was AMAZING.. we loved the different theme nights (indian, Chinese, Italian, spainish etc., the pudding bar is to die for, im a big pudding fan and can honestly say ive definitely put on a few pounds from eating 10 different puddings every day!!. my kids loved the breakfast pancakes, the staff are on the ball, always clearing, keeping things clean, greeting guests, interacting, very friendly.. the pool is good, could do with a slide, (that has came up in a few reviews) however in saying that my kids spent hours in the pool everyday.. playing water polo everyday at 4pm is fun, although a few (MEN, (cough) tend to take is very seriously and don't seem to like to pass to ladies.. The entertaining staff like Stefan, Argon and the ladies were great, they were always talking and playing with the kids, treating all kids like the younger brothers and sisters.. the entertainment could have done with a little more excitement as they tend to do the same every night which my 3years son loved, but my boy 7 and girl 9yrs got bored and tended to go outside to play with older kids.. The whole hotel was always being cleaned and tended to by onsite staff, the reception staff were always helpful with any questions we had and on my 30th Birthday I came back to my room to find a whole plate of cakes and a bottle of champagne.. lovely touch I thought.. Personally I cant fault this hotel, I did hear a few people being very negative but I couldn't see a problem with our stay, we were sad to leave personally.. Location was fine for us, we went on a few tours outside the hotel and most of them picked up from outside, if not then it was from the corbet which was only a couple mins walk down the road, town wasn't very far away there are a few rocky/dirt paths that are short cuts so your looking at about 10mins stroll? or there are onsite buses that take you down and back up.. we went to the neighbour hotel (paradise) we left after an hour, the swimming pools are in different places, and was far to confusing and busy, we kind of got home sick after an hour and soon scurried back to playa blanca where we didn't have to wait for a drink, and could swim and see all the kids at the same time..

I thought we were been set up in some sort of game show. As from day one we had nothing but problems. Air conditioning broke not fixed for 5Days and we asked to be moved and were told there were no other rooms. Electric tripped out as a result the fridge thawed child slipped on tills bruised bottom of back. Cleaner left room open all day. When we returned the bathroom was locked and a strong smell of aftershave in bedroom but no one there. Water boiler broke again water all over the floor just missing the kids tablets. In a number of occasions we had to get or key cards re activated. Entertainment was shocking not for kids. They have a toddler pool and two other pools not suitable for children under 8. Drink in a word was awful. Food was nice but as week went on food got worse. Would i recommend this hotel not a chance in hell. 4star I've stayed in better 3stars.

This was our first family holiday abroad with out little boy and we couldn't really have asked for more. We were welcomed as soon as we arrived and we're offered to stay in their water slide partner hotel if we wanted. We declined this as our little boy was only 15 months at the time and so we wouldn't have been able to make the most of the facilities anyway. We arrived at our apartment / villa but we're unable to get in the room due to a fault with the door. My husband went to reception and someone came straight away to fix it. The accommodation was lovely. it had a front and back area to sit; a good sized living area with a microwave and fridge; a brilliant sized bedroom which had a travel cot for our boy (it was re-made beautifully every day which was a really lovely touch) and a good bathroom. The water in the accommodation is warmed with solar panels so often takes a while to warm but at least they are thinking about the environment. There's plenty to do every day and the entertainment in the evening was enjoyable. The kids club was the same every evening so there could have been more variety but my little boy loved running around and dancing - he particularly loved chi chi wah and still dances to it now!!! The pool area was fine apart from there being a few broken lounges which meant that you couldn't sit up on them. The pool was cold to begin with but find once you got in so can't really complain. My son loved the small pool and it was nice to have somewhere small where he could play. There were quite a few large kids in there that could have been in the bigger pool as they were sometimes a big too boisterous for my son. The food was lovely; there was plenty of choices and a different theme every night. We were there over easter and so there was an easter Egg hunt where all the kids for a small chocolate egg which was a nice tough to tge holiday. Overall, a fab holiday and we would definitely consider going back.

We booked I bedroom bungalows online as it said they were for 3/4 people, twin beds in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge. We assumed therefore that the sofa bed was for 2 people - wrong! It was a wicker frame settee with seat cushions on it that were not really thick enough to sleep on that only slept one person (if you are under 6ft!) and the other person has to sleep on a camp bed. The mattresses on the twin beds are certainly hard and had plastic protectors on them which made them even more uncomfortable. We tried locking the door at night but, although it stops anyone from coming in, it doesn't stop anyone from exiting so please be aware of this if you have small children that might let themselves out while you are asleep! Booking in was very, very slow but otherwise the hotel, pool and staff were good. If you like drinking beer you need to be aware that it is served in very small glasses so you will keep fit going up to the bar all the time for refills!!

Tourist Information

Weather

Cheap Playa Blanca holidays are more or less a fixture for tourists the whole year round, thanks in no small part to the consistently warm Lanzarote temperatures - consistently hot, that is! Hot it may be, averaging around 18° Celsius in December and 26° Celsius by the summer, but sultry breezes, courtesy of the trade winds, mean you’re never flustered. Having said that, ensure you have your sun cream on at all times to protect you from the sun's rays.

Jabs

As UK, Courses or boosters sometimes advised: hepatitis A (not normally for package tourists).

Electricity

European Style 2-Pin Sockets, 220/225V
