Have just returned from a fab week. Loved the hotel will definitely return. It was predominately French but we didn't find that a problem.staff friendly spotlessly clean. There were 2 pool one which was quieter than the main one. Don't b put off by reviews we loved it .

We found out too late and Thompson's would not change the booking. First the good points. The staff were great and the place is very clean. It is owned by the French for the French. The English are totally superfluous. Take plenty Euros with you as there is a deposit for everything. The restaurant was like a school canteen at every meal time. (French school children everywhere). The food was poor,repetitive and unimaginative and in now way aimed at the British.We did attend the entertainment but apart from a mime scene we were unable to understand it.There is nowhere comfortable to sit and have a drink after dinner as the bar is only equipped with plastic tables and chairs.

We have stayed at Sun Royal as it was on seven occasions as independent travellers. Four years ago we arrived to be told that our apartment had suffered storm damage and water had leaked in making it uninhabitable. We were transferred to Sun Tropical ( now THB Tropical Island). What an awful experience that was. We complained when we returned home and were offered reduced tariff on our next visit. Our next two visits were fine. However, we booked March 2014 for February 2015. On our arrival we were told the hotel was full and we were told we were being transferred to the Tropical. We were less than pleased and made our feeling very clear to the reception staff to no avail. We had no option but had to go to the Tropical which honestly has no character and is like a prison barracks which we had previously complained about. We tolerated the Tropical for eight days before persuading the Management to move us back to THB Royal, It was a total surprise to find the French invasion. On our return home the web tells us that Club Marmara advertises 100% residency. After reading tripadvisor we were lucky to have water on tap. It does beg the question about discrimination. It is obvious THB are giving priority to this French club and disposing of English guests as and when it suits them. Our plans to spend our golden wedding anniversary there next year has gone up in flames as there is no way we could spend time at the Tropical again. There are plus factors: Esther at the Tropical reception was wonderful ( she was at the Royal previously) and Romy Puschman has always gone out of her way to look after us. Sadly for us it looks like the end of an era.
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.
