Original room booked was to small for 2 adults and a teenager so upgraded. Was not disappointed and possibly ended up with one of the best rooms in the hotel.
The balcony was huge overlooking the sea
The facilities were excellent and spotless. We had the b and b option only which was amazing. the choice and quality really stood out and the staff were extremely efficient.
We wanted a relaxing family break and this is what we got
Would definitely recommend. We stayed in a standard room and we did not feel inferior to the 'deluxe' guests at all. The pool area was lovely and the rooms were spacious. The food was lovely and had lots of options.
We've just got back from 5 days at hotel white suites and had an amazing stay. The hotel is spotless and staff all very friendly especially the activities coordinators. The food was also amazing with lots of variety despite it being a buffet. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice chilled holiday.
My partner and I are late 20s and wanted a week in the sun to simply relax and do very little! From getting off the plane we were through customs and at the hotel within an hour. The double room was very spacious and clean, the only negative being that it was two singles pushed together still using single bedding. The room was bright and had good air con which was needed! The pools were all clean and warm, and it was easy to get a good spot in the morning. We sat by the pool pretty much all day, using the very good pool bars to keep hydrated with beer and cola. The food was much better than I'd expected. A good variety each night and lunch time, and always something different to choose. The piano bar got fairly busy each night but it was still easy to get drinks, the majority of branded spirits were included in the all inclusive which was great! The marina is only a few minutes walk away with good restaurants and shops if you fancy a change as well.
All in all it was an excellent holiday at a great hotel. Nice and quiet and great for relaxing. Very friendly and helpful staff also
The Iberostar Papagayo hotel is set in a beautiful quiet position overlooking the sea. The hotel is spotless and rooms and beds are comfortable, although the air conditioning could be more effective. The pool area is clean and well laid out with plenty of sunbeds and use of towels which can be changed daily for a deposit of 10 euros. However the water is on the cold side.
The staff on reception, in the dining room and in other areas of the hotel were always pleasant, helpful and friendly and Animacion staff were enthusiastic and great at their jobs. The restaurant has a good varied selection of choices and cater for specific dietary requirements if requested (eg Gluten free bread with breakfast and a vegetarian corner at dinner).
There is also half hour free Wi-Fi available daily in the flamingo bar next to reception, with the option of paying for Wi-Fi in the room.
The hotel is an easy 20 minute walk along the sea front promenade to the Rubicon Marina, where there are plenty of bars and restaurants, and the supermarket is just a few minutes walk away.
Overall we would highly recommend the hotel and will definitely be returning for another holiday.

Have just spent 10 days at the Lanzarote Princess, what a superb hotel. The level of friendliness from all the staff was outstanding. Every parts of the hotel was clean and tide, and any problem was dealt with straight away.
The specialist restaurant was superb, wish we could have gone again.
This is our second time at a H10 hotel and I would recommend them.
This hotel is ideally situated for all you would want from a holiday. The rooms themselves are large in size and have everything you require. If there was to be one gripe it would be that although kettle etc is supplied in the room, after the first day you have to pay for a tea/coffee tray. Basic tea/coffee could be left daily I would suggest. Other than that this is a hotel I would keep returning to.

We've just returned from another stay at Jardines del Sol (6th visit) and it was just as good as ever. We are Diamond Resorts Members so have stayed through the club but have also booked through Expedia. Whichever way you do it the resort is equally as good. Staff are always helpful, efficient and very friendly, accommodation is well maintained and spotlessly clean but probably due a refurb in the next year or two. Ruby's restaurant is also excellent value with a good menu choice and lovely staff. The resort is well set out with plenty of privacy but will probably appeal more to those seeking peace and quiet rather than lots of on site entertainment. A hire car is best as it is a bit of a trek into Playa Blanca town, although there is a handy taxi rank and bus stop immediately outside the resort
All in all I would not hesitate to recommend this resort to those looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun.
