Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba. 

Overview
Feel your cares drift away in this relaxed setting amid palms and Cayo Largo's resident turtles, gulls and pelicans. Kick off your shoes and stretch out beside the pool, discover the beauty of the island by bicycle, enjoy the basketball and volleyball courts or go snorkeling and explore the undersea wonders of the offshore coral reef.

Location: Beachfront, 10 minutes from Juan Vitalio Acuna International Airport.

Stunning scenery, wonderful people!

We went to playa Blanca in February 2017. I was pretty worried after reading the reviews that is was going to be awful however we really enjoyed ourselves! It is true...you don't go to Cuba for the food....but must try's at this resort are the made to order pizza and pasta as well as the a la cart that over looks the Carribean Sea...best food we had all week. The beach is beautiful even though we could only go on it 2 days due to high tide. A must to do is go to playa Paraiso.....it is absolutely magnificent if you love beautiful beaches.... I was truly mesmerized by the beauty. The people that work at this hotel are so friendly and always helpful.....for what you pay, it is definitely worth it!

Amazing

Loved the hospitality, everyone was so nice. Although it was the off season they kept everyone entertained with dance and poolside games. I was also fortunate enough to participate in the annual release of some baby green turtles. Amazing beaches, 3 different ones to visit. Ask Roberto to make you a Sangria!

Amazing hotel, great beaches and wonderful experience.

I stayed there for a week and we loved it there. It's right on the beach. To go for a swim you will need to walk around 5 minutes to go down to the beach but when you do - it's wonderful. What I loved most the place isn't packed nor is the hotel. You get to feel the nature, the sea, and plenty of sun. We even walked from that beach further west along the beach for 10 km. It's pure joy and what a great pastime. The food was ok, go for lunches at the seaview restaurant. They make great sandwiches there. The room was very clean and was cleaned thoroughly each day. It's definitely a place for calm and peace. I loved it and I can't wait to come back.

Not a 5 star and does not promise to be, a response to harsh reviews.

Our stay at Playa Blanca was lovely. We booked a good deal and feel we got excellent value. Like a previous reviewer, my expectations were not high. We were prepared to shuttle daily to the big beaches given the reviews. To our pleasant surprise, there were 3 boardwalk access points just to the west of the westernmost bungalow with wonderful beach access and a bar. At times the beach was more narrow when the tide was high but there were loungers, shade and a very helpful staff member to get you set up. Previous reviews infer that there is no beach or that it is far. Playa Blanca is a small resort and the walk to the beach is shorter than many at large resorts. We did the transfer to the other beaches twice and they are spectacular however, Playa Blanca has plenty of beach to offer (pictures below). Yes, it is an older resort but we stayed in a bungalow with great beds and had amazing sleep owing to the quiet nature of the resort. Food was good, drinks were always generous and the staff were accommodating. If you are looking for a quiet, clean, well maintained, accommodating beach getaway and are reasonable about expectations, Playa Blanca is a great option. If you want brand new, gourmet menu with 5 star service and with 0 walk to a beach this is not the resort for you. Comparisons to that price point seem unfair. Playa Blanca was as advertised and provided us with a wonderful getaway!
