Stayed here last year with 2 other girls. We were after a relaxing all inclusive holiday in the sun and thats what we got. We had one room between the 3 of us which had 2 twin beds and a sofa bed. The room also had 2 huge balconies, so one was used to dry clothes, towels etc and the other was used to lounge in the sun as they were big enough to have sun loungers and a table and 3 chairs!! Air con is charged extra. But we didnt bother buying it as even though it was boiling outside the rooms stayed chilled. Wi fi is also charged extra. The food was lovely and there is something for everyone even if you just like chips! There is not a lot of english in the hotel but that dodnt bothered us. The only thing we found was that we for stared at... A lot!! Just stick your tongue out, usually stops the older spainish generation from starring!! Its about a 15minute walk to other restaurants and shops. There is also a bus stop outside the hotel for the water park and zoo. Would stay at this hotel again for a quiet get away.

Been back from holiday nearly a month and still can't stop thinking about it. Having gone to the Royal for 10 years looked forward to my 70th birthday. Wasn't disappointed. Same room same relaxed atmosphere, lovely staff beautiful reception, same familiar faces. Stroll to front even at night 10 minutes at most.Wonderful, just what we wanted. OUCH !!! somebody just pinched me. Of course we weren;t there. We were treated most shabbily by 'Mr THB' along with dozens upon dozens of others. Despite regular reassurances that we would be where we wanted to be right up until the week before when I rang my contact... as our friends were told the night before they left that they would not be at The Royal. We were informed that we had been accommodated in the Tropical Sun. No time to change flights, we were there for 2 months, nowhere could accommodate us for that length of time, Trapped. The Tropical is ok if you know where it is and that is the type of holiday you want. Staff all very helpful even after facing the wrath of all the irate clients of many years at the Royal. It is probably a further half mile to walk to where we wanted to be. Yes, we could get a taxi but the stroll is part of our holiday. After 6 weeks my knee had a major flare up of arthritis due to the extra walking resulting in the hiring of a wheelchair and assistance at the airport onto and off the plane. I now await a knee replacement. So, thanks again 'Mr THB' for your decision to turn The Royal into Club Mamara and for all the due care and consideration shown to 'us' your loyal clients of yesteryear. May you sleep soundly in your bed. Mrs.D. Wilshaw

After 14 years staying at the Royal, the day before we were due to fly we were told we had to go to the Tropical Hotel, because some French people had got our apartment. We usually stay for 3 months and have done for 14 years. The Tropical was a decent hotel but could be very noisy!

We returned to this hotel after staying last year. The hotel has been refurbished and is very clean and nicely presented and the staff were really lovely and helpful. It has been taken over by a French company and now has 98% French guests. I was happy with that as speak French but all the entertainment was in French which was no good for English guests and my boyfriend. There was very loud music by the main pool from 9.30 until late every day and into the night and it felt like a French holiday camp with all the noise, announcements of events etc during every day. The food had improved but you had to queue for your food daily, the restaurant was full on a number of occasions and you could not get a table. The tables were left uncleared for breakfast and dinner and they often ran out of cups at breakfast - it was regularly chaos, particularly during the French half term with all the children. We would return but would ask for an apartment at the back of the hotel away from the continual noise.

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
