not fun when its raining.

We are staying for a night with a family in Town CentrePlaya Blanca.The Room is big with the small kitchen, only when we entered the room, towels was not ready .The biggest pool in America Latin, yup I agreed, looked very nice , we did kayak for free , they said 30 minutes max. per day.The taste of the food for buffet not too good. Basicly you only need to eat to not make you hungry, dont expectfor a fantastic taste. Dessert even worst.When its raining you really stuck in the room, unless you bring umbrella.I think the managementneed to think about making a roof to connect the resort to the restaurant ,so we can go out though its raining outside.The train which coming around 20 minutes is one cool idea. My son was very happy with the train.The pool with the slides also fun ,good one.

Very Relaxing and Beautiful Vacation

I was there at the Playa Blanca For 15 days, and enjoyed everyday of it, Sept 6 thru 21.Must to my surprise I received a free upgrade to the Town Center. That was a blessing.The food was very good, for they had just got a new chief. One of the employees was very helpful, for he was a homeboy from Miami Mr. Luis. Oh yes and the lovely Ms.Jenifer There were others that was very helpful as well, but forgive me, I can't pronoun their

Not an International hotel-chain

Had a pleasant 2-day weekend stay at the resort. Had overall a very good stay, but you can definitely feel it is not a part of an international chain that has certain standards. Its a matter of small details, but what in the end makes the better experience.- The food was not fantastic, but there was a lot of different options. - The beach is not exactly worth the name "playa blanca", but the resort has nice pool areas where the animationsteam is good at making activities for all ages.- Rooms were fine and quite big (stayed in one of the suites)

Not Quite Paradise.....

If you visit, ask not to be placed in Building #7.Our group had three rooms in this building and of the 4 nights spent we had:-no hot water 3 of 4 days-mold/mildew cultures at base of shower-One room had missing caulk on the shower base which caused water to leak all over the side bathroom floor-very low water pressure -one room had A/C issues-no in room coffee was provided for the coffee maker, until last day.-Mold growth on room trash cans-side chairs in rooms needed a good cleaning or replacingDisappointed at the debris on the beach and would took a trash bag each walk to gather bottles, cans and litter. Did not feel comfortable swimming in ocean.Extreme Sports location on the property beach did not seem interested in selling.The Good:The buffet restaurant location was our favorite offering a great variety of foods over each dining segment. While we had reservations at other restaurants 3 of our nights-many required up charges for dining selections. Nice to have burger bar available throughout the day by the pool.-Bar service and bar tenders were terrific.-mini bar items were replenished on alternate days-Activities teams were fun and energetic.-Casino with penny slots were fun.
