    The setting: architecture, space, greenery, the great friendliness of the staff at the reception.

    The pizza from the pizzeria

    Good

    availability of several pools/ sun bathing areas, quietness of location, within 20 minute walk to beach, shops, restaurants etc.

    could do with more sun parasols. really did not like mattress protector on bed as it was plastic.

    Good

    We were only here for two days, waiting for a friend's villa to become free, it was cheap and cheerful, the pool was lovely and clean, but cold (it was April). Our room had the pool right outside, ideal for families. The onsight shop and food courts were good. The room was adequate for three of us, but quite a hike to town and the beach.

    Dark, damp and smelly bathroom, the back of our room had a covered walkway and trees, so there was no natural light in the bathroom and that made it feel cold and damp and was a haven for mosquitoes.

    Superb

    * Hotel Staff: Great service. * Arquitecture & Design: The hotel is designed like a small town, all white and blue, loads of trees and plants everywhere. Smart & cosy. Quite peaceful. * Very close to the centre of Playa Blanca * Great for families as they have all sort of entertainment, swimming pools everywhere, football, basket, tennis, table-tennis, etc. Great hotel to book without the included breakfast / meals.

    * Food: The quality of the food is not good. But if you come from London, you are probably used to not having good food quality. Specially the included breakfast. The coffee is awful, a joke really when you pay £6 extra per person to have an included breakfast and they can't even have a descent coffee. It's supposed to be a 4-star hotel yet the quality of the food is 2-star. I say this because I'm used to enjoying every single thing I try in Spain. Every fruit, vegetable, cheese, ham, bread; everything tastes so much better anywhere in Spain / Canaries. It seems in Sun Tropical they import their food from the UK. I guess that's fine if most of their customers come from the UK, they thought that no one would notice. * SPA They advertise it on their website but they charge you 5 euros per person for 1 hour of the SPA...which is OK, but not great as half of it doesn't work (e.g. Steam Room) * The other thing we don't like is that they charge you extra for everything (like Ryanair). If you want WI-FI wireless internet in your room it's 9 euros a day extra, OUTRAGEOUS. If you want a remote control for your TV you need to leave a deposit of 10 euros. Internet computers charge you 1 euro for 10 minutes... and the list goes on.

    The village was very nice and a lot of services where available

    The cleanliness of the room was ok. Probably if we did not have the car the beach results to be a bit far. Anyway our stay was pretty nice

    Having been to these apartments before we knew to book on a self catering basis as the food really isn't up to scratch. The apartments are in a pretty good loaction and the small pools around the complex are really handy for families when you just want a relaxing holiday without the need to get everyone up at the same time for breakfast etc (like teenagers). The apartments are very basic but really are in desperate need to upgrading, they haven't changed in 6 years.! The complex is good for kids clubs and activities in the pools through the day, not particularly good in the evening though.

    The complex has deteriorated significantly over the last few years. Having been here numerous times before we expected the same high standard we have seen perviously but we were disappointed. The rooms are cleaned 5 days a week but only very basic cleanliness, you now seem to be left to do most of it yourself. They are not very clean when you arrive either, things like skirting boards and cupboards are mucky and the crockery needs a good clean before you use them. Beds do not have mattresses on them, just foam which is made up into beds, not very comfortable. There is an on site bar called the tavern which used to be open from late afternoon throughout the evening and used to show the football etc on tv but this now only opens in an evening and there is no tv and no entertainments (used to be a singer on). The entertainment has gone downhill dramatically. There used to be reps coming round every hour telling you what was happening dow by the main pool but the activities have reduced and we didn;t see a soul all week to inform us of what was going on. The info in reception was all in spanish (not much help!). The main dome hasn't changed in 6 years and is like an old fashioned bingo hall. Needs updating. Food is terrible, it has never been fab but this time we went self catering and paid to go down to the main restaurant only once and it was appalling. Lack of choice and the standard is very poor. The pools were cleaned every morning and checked at lunchtime but unfortunately no-one cleaned around the pool or the sunbeds. These were just left everywhere and given the wind, they were often in the pool! Paper cups were strewn everywhere leaving us to pick them up if they had blown towards our apartments. All in all the complex is in dire need of a full re-furb. It's disappointing to see really as it was fab in previous years. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone again as there is much better in playa blanca nowadays.
