The Staff are very Rude and useless, we where at the Salt water Pool, and the ferry broke down, we started walking and a Security guy told us if we knew the rules, and that we are no allowed to walk by the pool, instead of being helpful and telling us that there was a small train that will take...

As we arrive they waited for us by the bus door handling refreshing cocktails. Checking in was fast and simple, we got the 5th floor on the west wing it was a bit far from everything, but quiet. And the view to the ocean was breath taking. We were four adults; rooms were spacious, washroom. I travel twice a year...

We spent two weeks at this resort from February 27th to March 13th and were concerned by the recent reviews. Good thing we didn't heed what most were saying as we found this to be one of our best vacations. We arrived at the resort and were checked in very quickly. FInding our building (#4) was a bit of a...

Our "attempt" to stay here was a disaster! I made a reservation on the hotel website on March 4 to stay there on March 5. I never received an email confirmation number but know that the reservation went through as I did see a confirmation number on the web page after submitting my payment information. I unfortunately did not write...

I brought my mom who is handicapped and they did not have accomiodations for handicap patrons. She could not enjoy the amenities. The sheets had mold on them. I had no...

Our experience at the Playa Blanca Resort was very disappointing. I must say that we like nice hotels and we are foodies, but this is the worst hotel I've seen in long time. When we arrived our room was not ready, so we had to wait 2 hours to get it. Afterwards, there were no towels and the room was...

We were hosted for a sunset birthday party at this property. Not our first visit, but one of the most memorable. The party was set by the artificial saltwater lagoon on a full moon. The property is well kept and clean. It was a private party but the setting could not have been prettier. The lagoon is enchanted and peaceful....

The food was good and the staff was friendly. The weather was amazing, too. Otherwise my experience at Playa Blanca was a disappointment. I don't know who assigns the number of stars for a resort, but this is definitely NOT a 4-star establishment. It is an older resort and it has not been kept up. Lots of things need fixing...
