There are 3 kids' clubs, Littlestars for ages 3 to 5, Superstars for ages 6 to 8 and Megastars for ages 9 to 11. Each club has activities tailored to the age range, to keep children busy and entertained during the day.
Superior 1-bedroom apartment sleeps up to 3 adults and 1 child or 2 adults and 2 children, with a twin bedroom, sofa-bed in the lounge and a pull-out bed. This comes with a microwave, kettle and TV. Cots are available.
Went for 11 days with my wife and 14 year son plus our friends and their two young daughters and loved every minute. Food is fantastic, My favourite was the Bar and Grill, My friends was the Mexican and My wifes was the Italian. Staff from cleaners to reps are very friendly. Only downside was one of the guests had their room broken into but that could happen anywhere. The beach is very nice and taxis are cheap so doesn't cost much to get around. Highly recommend this to place!More

Great family holiday!!
I work for Thomson as a travel agent, so I knew that this hotel was going to be perfect for my 3 year old. It isn't something that I would reccomend to a couple or friends, as it is jam packed with kids. We paid a bit extra for a superior apartment, it was room 68A and it had a lovely sea view, the only fault it had was that it was right above the blue moon bar (the main bar) so there was music playing until 11pm, which I didn't mind as I was normally still awake anyway and my Daughter had no trouble getting to sleep. We were greeted with a bottle of water, biscuits and a bottle of wine in the room which was lovely! The room was lovely and clean, could not fault it. Maids were really friendly and cleaned every other day. The food was really good I thought, my sister is a veggie and there was so much choice for her!! I do agree that children didn't have as much of a choice, but there was enough to satisfy my little one. The main restaurant Is noisy and would be a lot nicer if it was outdoors but hey ho. My daughter was poorly one night and the main restaurant manager let us take out food up to the room and was really nice, saying that we could take as much as we liked. (You're not supposed to take food out of the restaurant) every guest is given a ticket for the other restaurants too. Tavern by the sea was lovely!! Sizzling prawns were included in the tapas which were soooo tasty! We also went to the Italian one aswell - the pizza was lovely!! The entertainment team worked so hard and were all really friendly, they kept everyone entertained in the day (poolside quizzes, pool party, aqua fit) I never sat around the pool area as it was too busy, but the quieter area was lovely and was only a 5 second walk to the pool. Kids clubs are on 4 times a day for an hour and a half, and they can go as many times they want! The kids reps make sure the kids have loads of fun! More
Excellent would definitely recommend
Stayed here 28th August 2014 - 11th September 2014 with my husband 9 year old son and 3 year old Daughter first impressions compared to our stay last year at HV Cyprus thought it was small and we were put in room right next to entertainment B63 (must admit tho poss my own fault on room got number wrong on map from internet) but after asking because it was extremely loud we was moved to a bungalow No 44 fantastic bungalow lovely sea view quiet and after settling in could not have picked a better hotel the staff were fantastic, kids clubs great although our kids only did half a dozen, the food was amazing especially the steaks in Green and grill and there was everything in the restaurants always something lovely to eat location of the hotel was fantastic too could walk along the promenade to marina we was less than a minute from a beautiful beach that was safe for the kids crystal clear water and fish swam around your feet, I have stopped at many places and although enjoyed each one never imagined going back however I would definitely return today if I could afford it didn't want to come home and will definitely be returning not next year because we have booked to go to Turkey Altinkum but if we win some money will go today but will go back the year after Overall Fantastic Holiday ThankyouMore

The best thing about this hotel is the staff! They are amazing- child friendly, professional and hard working! They make the atmosphere warm and relaxed. The food was lovely, in particular the mexican eatery. The location is just off the beach, central and safe.the first choice reps were amazing-fun, professional and hard working! The evening shows were brilliant and all the younger kids loved the widgets! Excellent resort-ideal for families! More

Stayed here 2 weeks in early August. Was worried as a few reviews on here were a bit negative. Well all I can say is don't read them. This was by far the best AI I have ever been to. The place was spotless. The cleaners work tirelessly all day long. If anyone moans about the cleanliness of the place then all I can say is that they must live in a microchip processing factory clean room. The pools are cleaned each day, which is a task considering the contamination of sun creams etc.. throughout the day.
The room, #60 behind the baby pool had a nice view and was nice and quiet always. Just watch you don't get drunk at the Texas BBQ night (which is a must) and fall into the cactus (not good). Spotless, nice and clean, newly refurbished, nice air conditioning and not that gale force wind type of breeze either. Bathroom had a nice skylight which made it very bright. The living room had loads of room and my kids 9 and 12 loved putting the two sofa beds together to make one large bed, which was my bed on the night of the Texas BBQ. (still gives me a hangover thinking of that night, 3 pitchers of beer, one pitcher of Sangria and a bottle of wine). Had a table and chairs out the front to sit on and just look up at the stars while drinking my beers that you can go and get from the sports bar just 1 minute walk away.
The pools. Yes the usual bed rush but that is everywhere this time of year. The best thing to do is go down to the beach and spend a fun filled day there and make your way up to the main pool around 2/3pm and you will get a pool side bed. Head back around 5pm shower and get ready for lunch at 6:30pm and the crowd will have dispersed.
The food: Bloody amazing, so so much to choose from and its always topped up and very fresh. The choices of the other 4 restaurants is such a great idea and really breaks up the routine. You can even go to reception and ask to visit them again for the following week. Even during busy times the queues were never that bad I mean come on people stop moaning about taking 3 minutes to get to the main meals, your on holiday for Christ sake. They do a great burger in the green and grill. The pool side bar had a really nice dark haired lady working there. Cant remember her name but she always had as smile for everyone. Made a great Mojito as well. Hard to choose my favourite as they were all nice in their own way.
Entertainment: Was typical of a resort like this but blimey does this team work hard.
To be honest I could go on writing about how great this place was. If there are people that cant enjoy themselves at a place like this then book yourself a holiday to the moon and stay there. The overall management of this resort is exceptional and this starts from the very top and works its way down, and you could see this by the attitude and attention to their tasks and how efficient they carry them out. Trying best to keep out of the way of the guests, which is not easy to do with such a large place. this resort really is spread out over a large area so well done to the local staff for getting everything just spot on.
Playa blanca is so beautiful, the sea is beautiful, the people are nice and the food is great. Take a nice stroll along the sea front and you get a nice breeze. Playa Blanca has a nice beach where you can do banana boat, jet ski, or just swim out to the rocks and go snorkelling to see the massive fish.
Excursions: Friday night Texas night, an absolute must, get as drunk as you like and just shout yeeeehaaaa and they refresh your drinks.
Fuerteventura dunnes hopper, get to see the amazing dunes, have a nice lunch, be careful there are two prices and one doesn't include lunch which we found out but went to the Waikiki pub which was really nice. The beach they take you to is amazing, like being in the Caribbean, can be windy though. Then a nice boat trip back, and yes I saw my first flying fish.
Atlantic adventure, one of the best boat excursions ever. Nice ride to a secluded beach where you more up just off the beach, you get a small boat to take you to the beach or just stay on the boat and swim, kayak, banana boat or just chill out up to deck with as much as you can drink and eat. My top tip, go for a swim, kayak or snorkel to avoid the rush for drinks and when you climb back on the boat about 10 minutes later, loads of drinks have been poured out ready to just take.
Overall the best holiday my family has had to date and will definitely recommend to anyone wanting a holiday that has enough for the kids so you can sit back and enjoy yourself, eat and drink as much as you want, vary your food choices, meet nice people, stay in a nice clean freidnly resort and just a 15 min walk from the local night life. Go there with an open mind and remember, your on holiday so no matter what, enjoy yourself! I did and we loved it.More
