5* staff not a 5* hotel too big

My family and I stayed here for one week 16-23 April 2015 we all thought the hotel was lovely along with the food plenty of choice and to suit the needs of even fussy eaters, however my wife and I can't quite put our finger on it as too why its not worthy of five stars outright. The entertainment staff do work hard especially Veronica and spongebob who just seemed to stand out from the rest all other staff from front desk to cleaners were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble I think it's a nice quiet area of the island with nice coastal paths to follow either by bike or on foot but overall I think it's probably too big for a five star hotel but worth a visit

My girlfriend and I attending in August 14 for 10 nights. We were incredibly impressed with the service of all the hotel staff. We had many things we wanted to see/do whilst we were in the country and the reception staff were more than helpful and sorted out serval excursions at far better prices than if we'd put them together ourselves. The food was superb and plentiful. We loved the Italian and Chinese restaurants. One of the highlights was the beach bar, shame it's only open until 11!

Just returned from 10 days at this hotel and feel like I owe them a review as the holiday was great. Food was great, really good selection every night with the addition of the 2 extra restaurants you wont struggle to find something you like. Staff were all great, from the reception to the restaurant staff. Pools - great pools, kids loved the pool with slides and the larger heated pool. Location - we liked being a bit out of the way of the main 'costa blanca' centre, about a 30 minute walk - lovely beach in playa papagayo if you can get to them. would 100% recommend for families.

We had a great 4 night break. On arrival we were greeted by a lovely guy - a trainee I think, spotted that my mum was tired after a long journey and offered us a seat at reception - one of his colleagues came along and pointed out that as we were not premier guest we should not have been offered a seat...lovely - the seats were not being used so what was the harm? Anyway the trainee continued to check us in and offered us a glass of Cava..perfect. We had paid for an sea view and that what we got. Room was amazing ..lovely walk in wardrobe...if I was being really picky I wouLd say not very accessible as I'm only 5 foot and the rails were nearly too high to reach. Food was great - always something different...show kiTchen was amazing. Staff all great...apart from rude guy on reception.

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
