I must say this was one of the best week holiday I have had. Didn't want to come home and made loads of new friends at the hotel. We've even exchanged contacts and will try and book again next year all together. Food was great and the animation team in charge of games for

Like a few people we got a good deal on this holiday & were pleasantly surprised. I had emailed ahead asking for a “quiet” room as we like to just chill out & read and are rarely up after 9 p.m.! Management obliged & we were shown to a beautifully refurbished one bedroom

When we went in January all the rooms ,pool areas and eating areas all finished. The arena that is being built or entertainment was almost completed. The adventure land almost ready to open. By may all should be completed to a high standard. You and your family need not worry it will look fantastic.

We were there last week. Still open as HL Rio Playa Blanca til April/May then the name changes. Most of the refurbishment done. Think all the bungalows finished, there really nice. Massive auditorium & play area half finished. I believe cocktails are included. Bar drinks are chargeable after 11pm. For the kiddies - slush puppies & ice creams from the bar are chargeable but tucked away inside the sports bar is an ice cream fridge that is free. If you’ve not booked I would make your choice carefully. We thought the service/cleanliness was more 2 star than 4 star unfortunately.
