oro blanco review

"These apartments are old ,with smelly furniture ,,cooking area,very basic ,,only 2 rings to cook on no oven,limited kitchen utensils.i was left with only a sheet on my bed ,,and some nights were chilly ,,blankets in wardrobe ,,but very satle old smell to them ,,reception are friendly enough but ,,asking for any thing ,,quilt ,towels,took usually 2 days to get. i find it really bad ,,that a self catering place ,,had no iron ,,and you had to hire one ,,as did you a fan 40 euro,(no air conditioning)although the apartments are near the beach ,and bars ,,there are also prostitutes hanging out side the front of the building at night,making you feel very uneasy coming in late passed them.pool area ok ,,but again you are charged if you want a mattress for your sun bed ,,bar,cheap but looks like a scruffy youth club inside and closes at 10.30pm.this place would be ok if it had been cheap budget holiday but it wasn't ,,much better places for same price ,I wouldn't recommend staying here."

Fantastic Holiday

"We have just come home from the Ora Blanco and must say what a fabulous holiday we have had. The apartment was basic but had everything you need. The staff were an excellent team ensuring our stay was of the best quality. The cleanliness was of a high standard in the rooms and throughout the complex. The staff were very friendly, helpful and always greeted you with a smile. I was unsure of how this holiday might be and would never hesitate to stop in these apartments. Thank you for a lovely stay Ora Blanco!!!

Cheap and Cheerful

"Got a good price for this central stay in Las Americas with travelmonster.co.uk in October. We are a young married couple who like late nights and plenty of sunshine. This was perfect for us as it was affordable, really close to the strip and the beach and the room was clean and comfortable. Would go back again and recommend it as a good no frills accommodation."

Worth a visit

"We have now been to the Oro Blanco 4 times and the 5th is coming up soon so believe me when I say it's friendly, near to every thing you need, comfortable, clean and easy to find.

It's self catering and has a cooker, fridge, eating area sofa and beds and a shower / bath. It is not noisy a there is ample parking. Go on give it a try.

Nice, clean apartments but the noise almost spoiled the holiday

"The apartments were clean, although bedding and towels could have been changed more, good central spot for beach and shops.

Would never go back to these apartments though as the noise at night went on till 4/6am sometimes which is fine if that's the kind of holiday you want but for people with a young family or pensioners in the group it;s a nightmare! Groups of up to fourteen youngsters, not all were noisy but some had no consideration and used bad language in front of the kids around the pool area. I wish we had been told when booking that it was mixed apartments for families and large groups going to party. You could count the families in one hand when we went.

They also handed raw and cooked foods when making anything at the bar/restaurant without washing hands in between times.

Give it a miss!!

"We have just returned from a 9 night stay at this -1 star place. We read the reviews prior to going and gave it the benefit of doubt,how wrong we were!! Deposit on arrival 60 euros, constant shouting from residents and local prostitutes. The usual gobby brits around the pool and food all over the place. No air con, if you get a roadside room it is noisy. Despartely trying to think of positve points but i am struggling.Any travel agents reading this should review it and make a decision."

Girls Holiday Young and Lively

"This hotel is perfect if your going on a young and lively holiday. I stayed here in July 2010 with 4 girls for our leaving cert holiday and it was THE perfect location. Walking distance to the strip,beach, bars and restaurants. This hotel had many other 18-30 year olds staying here. Defiantly not ideal for families due to noise levels. But otherwise had an amazing time, cheap drink and cheap food! Only €3.50 for a full Irish breaky in most nearby restaurants. Going back this summer 2012, cannot Wait!!!

Value for money

"My daughter and I stayed there for a week at the beginning of October which turn out to be hotter than thier own summer !!, to be honest this is a no frills place to stay,so if you just want somewhere to act as a base and go of exploring this is ideal, we had no problem with cockroaches or ants so its hit or miss if you encounter them.

The pool is a decent size and the majority of the staff are very helpful and will go out thier way to help and give you advice on bars and eateries.

The Thomas Cook rep for the Hotel is 'Jen' a lovely lass who proved valuable with any issues or ideas for trips during your stay .

The location is ideal for Siam Park and 'The Strip' where there are plenty of places to eat and drink.

As you turn left out the hotel and go a hundred or so yards you'll find 'DJ Jocks' formally known as the 'Bus Stop' , we spent many a night in there and the staff made me and my 12yr old daughter VERY welcome , definatley worth a visit.

At the end of the day , your holiday is what you make it..

my family stay at oro blanco

"I stayed at Oro Blanco with my husband and four children, we had a three bedroom apartment. On the first day of arrival which was three o'clock in morning one of my son's screamed as he saw a massive cockroach!!!!! That wasn't pleasant i can tell you. Then we had to beg for towels and tell them to come and change the bins. If i never went to find one of the cleaners this wouldn't of been done. I wasn't impressed with some of the young men who were staying there, when it came to my children playing in the pool, i had to tell them what for as they tried to take my son's ball, to which i weren't having none of it. The beach is nice apart from seeing alot of topless old women, which wasn' really appropriate. I would go back to tenerife but never to cockroach infested ORO BLANCO!!!!"

Nice Hotel - but noisy at times

"Hotel - stayed here from 8/9/11 - 17/9/11 all in all not too bad. We stayed in room 216 which was basic but really nice,and overlooked the pool.

Staff- were very friendly expecially Sandy who worked in the bar at the pool, she was by far the best cook too.

Overall- mixed groups of young, old,couples and families., the only negative was the bar closed at 10.30 ... WAKE UP its 2011 and think of all the revenue you are losing..

Food- If you want to experience really excellent food go to BAR 13 which is just minutes from the hotel...turn left out of the hotel and walk down the road a few yards.. its amazing food best we had, pity we only found it 3 days before we were leaving ..
