We have a 9 month old baby and for us the hotel was perfect, however, 9+ months ago I would have struggled being here as a couple. The hotel, staff, facilities etc are excellent and we would happily return. Location is great and lots of restaurants and bars within easy reach plus hotel across the promenade. Only complaint is that the rooms are a little dark lacking natural light (but helped baby sleep in so not all bad!) and that for a room with a couple, the two beds (common practice I know) are made up as 2 singles pushed together, whereby we fought each night with the covers, despite requesting them be made up as one, and my husband had fun slipping down between the beds each night!!! Also, having no complimentary water and having to request via room service for packet coffee and little creams every day is not ideal - surely they should be topped up daily without guests chasing in a 5 star?!?! Overall a great 4 star hotel but a couple of tweaks would elevate it to where it should/ professes to be.

Just got back from a 4 night stay for my 50th. Stayed in room 0123 deluxe with sea views. It was amazing. Great value. The breakfast was excellent. So much choice. Had a back and neck massage in the Wellness suite by Anna. I felt so relaxed. Everything was so professional and nothing was too much trouble. After my massage I came out to find a bottle of champagne courtesy of Wellness. What a lovely touch and a great way to spend my birthday.
Recently updated there is nothing to fault in these bungalows. 2 adults and 2 teenagers had plenty of room. Spotless and modern with everything you need. Fantastic staff who cannot help you enough. Lovely pool area although the usual scramble for beds in August. Only slight fault is the need for more bar staff. Highly recommended.
Great location. Great pool area. Rooms large and I paid for a sea/pool view. Seperate bedroom and living room with kitchen arew. Lovely bathroom. We had the hotel breakfasts. You could have either continental or cooked (or both). Cooked was freshly done in front of you. Really good. Staff were really good and helpful.although it says limited maid service, our room was cleaned every day and towels changed. Towels thinner than normal but they rest dried well, unlike some of the softer ones! Pool loungers were luxurious round or rectangular with head cushions. Nice jacuzzi. Pool bar food was really good. Drink prices were normal prices unlike most other hotels! Sangria by the litre or by large glass was lovely.
Reception area is modern and I want my house like that! Light up planters in the well kept grounds were a nice touch. Plenty of games on offer from darts to boules to tennis.
Reception excellent and organised bike hire and airport taxi for us. Very efficient.
we have stayed at 5 star before in the area but will be coming here again next time!
"very familyfocussed, great staff,.sunbed madness"
Lovely hotel, very overcrowded, if you wanted comfort by any of the pools a 6.15 am trip to bag a sunbed was critical! found it very waring and gave up.
very lively hotel, lots on every night, good kids club, staff amazing and very patient.
reception queued for 20 mins each time, too many people during school holidays.
Made to feel special on anniversary and my son's birthday.
beach stoney and small, enjoyed by locals though and dog walkers.
probably north of island better for quieter and better beaches.

Room was comfortable and great with 2 small kids. Indoor pool as warm as a bath. Fantastic staff - cleaners came most days and made fun animals out of the towels for the kids. There was a complimentary bottle of cava waiting for the adults on arrival too. Marina was a bit classier as an area than some resorts but still had children's menus at all the eateries. Really convenient for excellent papagayo beaches but only with a vehicle. Kitchen basic but sufficient. Thoroughly recommend.
Lovely hotel, well maintained and clean. Large range of restaurants and facilities. The hotel had lots of activities for children but needs more for the teenage age range and the piano lounge needs better entertainment In the evenings.

The original port and fishing village maintain an agreeable low-key buzz with good bars and restaurants, but it is the beaches that make Playa Blanca famous. West of the centre, on past the new and expanding fashionable Marina Rubicón, and a clutch of luxury hotels, lie the island’s finest golden white coves, known collectively as the Papagayo beaches. Three small cafes are the only development in this protected area.
