I almost wish I'd never been to a Holiday Village
We spent a week here in June 2017. Arrived around 9pm and after getting to the room, we were shown to the upstairs restaurant for dinner. Pool Area We struggled to get sun loungers the following morning around the main pool and had to settle for beds up on the next level between the pool and the blue moon bar. Not great when you have two young kids who want to be in the pool all day. My immediate impression of the place was that it was too small for the amount of people there, and this was still early in the season. The rest of the week was ok for beds, probably due to the weather being overcast, but we managed to get loungers at 9am most mornings by the pool. Rooms The rooms were great, plenty of space, great air conditioning, fully fitted kitchen with everything you needed; hob, micro, kettle, fridge/freezer, iron and ironing board. My only issue with the room is that we came back around 11pm every night and had cockroaches. I think I eventually worked it out that they were coming in through the shower drain in the bathroom. The cap over the drain in the shower was loose, so I fixed it back on and put a shoe over it and that seemed to fix things. Restaurants No complaints about the food selection in the restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We preferred the Mediterranean restaurant for lunch as it was a lot cooler and less busy. It had bread rolls and fillings, hot dogs, burgers, pizza etc. The main restaurant had a decent selection every day. Bars Awful! I think this is something that probably needs looked at. The pool bar is part of the Mediterranean restaurant. The bar staff also seemed to double up as waiting staff in the restaurant, so I found a lot of the times I went to the bar for spirits or anything that wasn't self service, I could be waiting up to ten minutes. Waiting for service was a regular occurrence, but it meant I was used to waiting by the time we got the blue moon bar in the evening where you could be in a queue of anything up to 20 people any time you went for a drink. There only ever seemed to be 2/3 bar staff working and one of them was out clearing tables. The bar staff did a good job and worked as quick as they could but I think they could do with more help. And possibly have designated bar staff in the pool bar all day to just do the bar. The alcohol itself was a let down. Beer was fine, but spirits were cheap local stuff that definitely were not as strong as branded drinks. Entertainment Not great. Of the 5 nights we were in the blue moon bar for the entertainment there were two local acts, both basically doing the same thing, balancing acts for half an hour. If it was Britains Got Talent they wouldn't have lasted 30 seconds before hearing 4 buzzers. The hotel entertainment staff put on shows the other three nights. These were ok and cant fault the effort but it was noticeable that some of them didn't know the dance moves etc that they were trying to teach the kids. CoCo and Charlie, even my 4 year old girl got bored of this after seeing them twice, so much that we then waited until their 15 mins were over before going into the blue moon bar each night. Terrible! Having been to Holiday village in Majorca last year, and knowing this hotel was previously a Holiday Village, we were hoping that we were going to have a similar experience, but left disappointed when we compared it to HV Majorca. The entertainment at Holiday Village was much more polished and professional, service a lot better, branded alcohol, lots of pool space and loungers, better kids club program etc. We left with the impression that the Holiday Village brand almost outgrew this hotel, as if it was too small to maintain the standards of HV. The hotel and holiday is fine, but had we not been to HV I'm sure we would have enjoyed it more. It just felt like a cheap Holiday Village, certainly not in price, but definitely in quality and presentation.More
Ticked all the boxes
First family all inclusive holiday and we came home happy, relaxed and looking to book again......that kinda says it all really. Food was very good, though hot options weren't always the hottest all the time there was the option to have a choice of 3 meats freshly cooked in front of you which was great. The kids buffet was super, kid height for them to go and select their own meals, with a good balance of healthy options as well as the not so healthy!! The Chocolate Fountain was a big hit.....well it was a holiday after all. The complex was spotless, staff friendly. The usual deal with sun beds, get up early to get one otherwise your only option was to create a scene and shout and roar for a Manager as some people did and some loungers magically appeared and space was made for them. I seen a similar scene with another family and a life guard, shouting the usual crap about not getting loungers, then low and behold they were facilitated. The beach was a good option on the mornings when it was overcast and 'cold' as my 4 year old complained a few times. (the indoor pool is open to kids 10am - 12pm so that would be an option too) End of May the temp was about 24 degrees but rising. It got very busy due to UK mid term break, I wouldn't like to be there in July/August as I can image there would be all out war on loungers and the restaurants would be mobbed (the usual advice here, early morning is more relaxed) My only gripe would be with the kids club for 3-5 year olds, it was indoors for the 2 hours, no programme listed of activities they would be doing and was told that each day its a 'surprise'... BS!!!!! It was made up as they went along by the looks of it. I didn't bring my kid on holidays to have her stuck in doors for 2 hours every morning so we tried it once then gave it a miss. There seemed to be plenty of out door activities for the older kids and parents of babies told me the Baby Lounge was excellent. Kids entertainment by the pool was good and the evening entertainment was good for them too (hard going to do it for a week, though some people seemed to be REALLY into it EVERY night!) Accommodation was lovely, modern, clean and everything in working order. (we were in Block D by the pool, noisy during the day with sound from the pool side entertainment and music but we were never inside much so didn't bother us. Not too noisy at night from passing guests. Walls are kinda thin though so some noise as the week went on from new neighbours with kids, but it's to be expected in a family resort!!!! There was a smell from the drains in the bathroom when we arrived but we had two visits from Maintenance to try sort it out. It seemed like a lack of use was the main issue as it cleared up after day two, I don't think it was really down to the Maintenance man putting a nice smelling drain cleaner in but I could be wrong as his English was non existent. Water park (Aqua Lava) is a very short walk away, signposted right outside the hotel and it's a nice wide footpath to it. Someone on here said it was 8 minutes to walk it, they weren't too far off. They checked our bags for food on the way in as they're strict on you only purchasing on site. There's a nice area for small kids with about 6 slides in total and the big water bucket dumping down on them, a lazy river and about 5 bigger slides for teenagers and adults, plenty of seats, they are not loungers (included in the entrance charge) You'd really want to be going for the day to get value for money as it would be an expensive afternoon out! Check out Aqua Lava website for prices. There's a nice walk into the shops and restaurants in Playa Blanca with some nice spots to stop, have a beer and people watch. Be sure to shop around for the best value and don't forget to haggle!! Checked out the Asian/Steak house with the bouncy castle in brief, the bouncy castle is a great asset but my heart would be in my mouth with toddlers out there as there isn't what I would consider a "small child" safety rail in place (the bouncy castle is on a flat roof surface outside the first floor restaurant) food was lovely, smokers in the Asian section, not a cheap option but a nice change from the all inclusive (and there are cheap eats on the menu so it's not fair to say it was expensive we just were a bit surprised when we got the bill but we were treating ourselves!!) And parents please DO NOT let your kids suck on the lollypops the restaurant staff give them(after their meal) while they are ON the bouncy castle........I witnessed 3 kids from the same family, one aged 3, doing this( and I nearly jumped up and whipped them off them).....it's a totally irresponsible thing for any adult to do! Overall I'd be happy to go back this resort. Travelled with my 67 year old mother and 4 year old daughter. More
Not what I've come to expect from family life!
We always book family life after several amazing holidays in the past. What can I say about this place... the resort beautiful the beach is lovely! But the hotel can't fault the rooms but the restaurants are understaffed we often had to sit at a dirty table or with food around our feet the staff just can't keep up! The selection of food in my opinion is not that varied compared to what I have experienced in the past. When dishes run out there is certainly no rush to replace them and some Of the food is lukewarm at best and some of it appears to have been reheated. cleaning by some of the maids is slap dash at best re hanging up dirty towels when I have left them on the floor to be replaced. With the exception of a few staff are miserable! The reps with the exception of Ben in guest relations who is exceptional and Cedric of the entertainment team the rest seem like they can't be bothered! The professional production staff are good at their bit but you can tell they feel Thomson the dog and the other duties are above them. Overall underwhelmed thoroughly!!! More
Love, love, love this place!
Our first all inc family holiday and we definitely picked the right place. Hotel is spotless, staff very helpful, menu caters for all tastes, drinks cold. Yes there are sunlounger wars and it is irritating if you don't want to get up at the crack of dawn just to reserve a lounger BUT it's your fellow guests doing it so hardly the hotels fault. There are signs up saying any unused towels will be removed by the lifeguard but i would prefer him to be watching the pool then checking on selfish guests. The beach is amazing and i would definitely recommend snorkelling with the fish. The poolside entertainment was ok, we tried the evening entertainment once but there were no seats in the blue moon bar and a massive que at the bar so we ended up at the kids play area every night instead, which suited us better. The resort seems to be aimed at younger children (under 10) as nothing for older kids to do. I would definitely visit again. Lanzarote is so chilled, Playa Blanca is a lovely resort and this hotel encourages relaxation. More
Great food but no chance of a sunbed
Stayed with my husband and two kids aged 4 and 5 brilliant choices of food amazing time at the beach restaurant night great staff in buffets but very busy in there. No chance of getting a sunbed unless you are up before 7am but who wants to do that when you're on holiday gutted really as had to them pay 12 on the beach sunbed however gorgeous beach, when we returned though still sunbeds reserved no one on them!!! Shouldnt have this problem! Kids entertainment at night could be better just felt that the reps at other family life hotels gave it more! Plus the room was dark and hot why not just go it outside?and big queue from drinks why not get more bar staff? Overall we would return as the food was fabulous especially the restaurants the staff were nice the place was clean also comfy beds and modern room right next to a lovely beach and walkway into the town Just keep the price down no way we can rebook with the prices as they are now October is over 3k!! Not a 5 star I'd say a 4 but very enjoyable but would be persuaded to pay a little more if entertainment at night and sunbed issues were sorted but keep u the good food and great staff in all food areasMore
