We have stayed at the Sun Royal four times and had booked to stay there again this year flying out in a couple weeks time. Having read the event reviews about the alleged water problems and how English people were being treated and knowing full well that the Tropical was an awful place to be transferred to we decided to contact the hotel to see if there was any way they could guarantee that this would not happen to us. I spoke with all woman who refused to give me her name and she told me that the water problem was on going and she could not guarantee that they would not occur during our stay. I therefore contacted Jet2 who told me that they were totally unaware of the problems at the Sun Royal and they paid little attention to the entries on Trip Advisor as they considered them to be personal opinions. When I pointed out that what was happening was FACT I was told again that they were unaware of any problems. Not wanting to have face the probability of having the upset of having to move Tec we have decided to not even take the chance and are now staying elsewhere in Playa Blanca. It just not worth risking it. I WILL NOT BE RETURNING TO THE SUN ROYAL AND I SUGGEST THAT YOU DON'T EITHER.

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.

We have stayed in the THB royal on previous occasions but never again......... On arriving we were pounced on by French holiday reps .On checking in the receptionist spoke to us in French. looking around the reception area it didn't take long to realise that the hotel was geared towards the French. The staff spoke only French on occasions they did speak we were greeted with Bonjour. The menu was typically French along with the entertainment. However this would be acceptable if I was holidaying in France but as I was holidaying in Lanzarote I would have expected the common language throughout the hotel to be Spanish. We were informed by the management that the hotel had been taken over by a French holiday company. The meal times were stressful because the OTHER guests were very rude and obnoxious. We felt very isolated, we spoke to two other couples who had the same experiences as us and also felt very intimidated. The hotel has been recently refurbished to a reasonable standard (for a 3 *) however there was no comfortable seating in the bar area, rather like a works canteen. We spent most of the days outside the hotel even though we were all inclusive only returning for meals.

My husband and I have been going to the THB Royal, previously the Sun Royal ,three times a year for many years. However, we have felt increasingly unwelcome over the last 3 years since it became a thb hotel culminating in being treated like several other English guests earlier this month when the water to the apartment was turned off. We were told there was a problem which could not be fixed but when we went back later it was obvious our room was occupied. We had to go to the tropical a very inferior hotel. The staff, most of whom had worked at the Royal for years, had all been moved to the Tropical and were as welcoming as always. They had obviously had to move out too for French speaking staff. We will never go back to the Royal or any other THB hotel.
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.
