"Excellent for a quiet off season break"

Overall Resort Rating:

Excellent

Lovely location perfect for older travellers or people with young children, and particularly babies. Very laidback with not too much to do but chill, enjoy the weather, and enjoy the beaches. Not much nightlife but reasonably decent restaurants.

"Best resort we saw"

Overall Resort Rating:

Excellent

Playa Blanca is idea for couples and families. There's a lovely marina at one end and several small beaches. Plenty of lovely restaurants all along the front and a paved walkway that goes for miles. Ferries for Fuerteventura leave from here and as the island isn't that large it's easy to get about to other resorts.

Overall Resort Rating:

The resort of Playa Blanca itself was lovely, exept for the very untrusting shop staff who made you feel very uncomfortable. (Always 2 steps behind you). The tavern bar is only good as somewhere to stop off and pick-up a couple of 'balcony' drinks when heading back to your room and I found that a no ice policy (the ice cubes are massive) meant that I at least got a taste of the supposed drink i'd asked for - better get your own bottle and just get the 'mixer'. Get your drinks from the chicken shack during the day as you'll generally miss the queues at the pool bar and the drinks appear better quality. The 'dome' is a disaster; it appears to be open air when viewed from the brochure but is in fact FULLY enclosed and acoustically probably the worst place i've had the misfortune to view a 'show' from. The props available to the evening entertainment team looked like they'd cost £10 - about 5 years ago.

The choice of Resturants in Playa Blanca is fantastic - we loved Jumbo's chinese (loving the shot glasses) and New Orleans - only meal we didnt enjoy was in the Taurus Steak place (with the cow print sign) this was very disapointing and tastless but apart from that we couldnt fault the choice. We cant wait to return as soon as possible and will definatly recommend this hotel and the resort of Playa Blanca.

The trips on offer seemed good but can be booked for cheaper if you venture into playa blanca town. The market at the Marina is on wednesdays and saturdays and i would highly recommend it. We took a stroll to the Papagayo beaches (notoriously nudist beaches, just to warn you) but if you can cope with naked people, they are quite beautiful. We also took a walk to the Marina (also lovely), had drinks in Cafe Del Mar (poor service), walked round the market which was full of novelty items and some fantastic wine sold by a lovely old man and then walked to Playa Dorada, which has all the touristy shops in it. Takes about 40 minutes to get to Playa Dorada when walking on the coast road, and it is quite a nice way to go we think. Very peaceful.

Playa Blanca is a very good resort, it was beautiful. It had the right balance between quiet relaxed atmosphere and a bit of nightlife. I would definitely recommend this resort.

There is plenty of slow walks eithere way from the hotel and a nice promenade walk into playa blanca. But if you want to travel to best beach a taxi will cost you 3 euros. We found a newly opened fantastic chip shop-right by the dorada beach. Next to Mollies Bar called The plaice in the Sun, up the side by the cycle hire shop. Fish chips n mushy peas with a pint of san miguel sitting in the sun watching people on the beach and in the sea- in november!pop in and say hello to Jeff from up north! the hotel entertainment not great but nightlife in irish bars by playa blanca beachfront a must!. A trip to the market wednesday and saturday is good. But not all stalls there both days. We will be returning again for the winter next year - if not credit crunched!

Resort of playa blanca is fabulous we spent the first 3 days of our 2 wks stay exploring the area finding our feet and after these 3 days we knew were everything was so then we enjoyed the rest of the holiday, beaches excellent and golden not volcanic as you would think as the sand is all imported. We traveled on glass bottom boat, saw futureventure island there was so much to do to type you must see it for yourself to appreciate. our boys really really enjoyed it that much that our 3yr old didnt want to come home, saying that neither did we...there is no loud rowdy bars, nice and quiet area for doing the family thing an all round lovely place.

BEACH Lovely pretty place where we spent all of our days. Great beach with 3 euro lounger hire per day. The hotel run a shuttle service to & from the beach, first coach leaves at 10.10am and I think the last one back is around 3.30-ish, but we used to get a cab back later normally costing 4-5 euros. We walked back once but to be honest it was a bit of a slog, well worth a taxi ride. The hotel is a bit out of the way but again the cab fare into playa blanca is 4-5 euros & takes a few mins.

The new Marina area is fairly near, and the main village is a pleasant stroll away, either along the sea front or down the main road. We have been to Playa Blanca quite a few times and we consider the Playa Dorada to be a good quality, relatively good value compared to some of the large hotels in the resort.

Playa Blanca is a quiet resort on the whole, more suited to couples of all ages than to young parties or even to families, unless there are kids' clubs in the hotels, but it is an attractive resort with a very long seafront and 3 beaches.
