Lovely hotel but is closing for refurb OCT and not sure of the opening date
"We stayed at this lovely hotel for Xmas & New Year 2014 our intentions were to stay for New Year 2015 for which we made the booking and paid for in full on Feb 9th 2015 and found to our horror 2 weeks later that the establishment is closing for refurbishment on 15th Oct 2015 and nobody has any knowledge as to when it will reopen. To say we are angry is an understatement as nobody seems to know what will happen to our money paid also we booked and paid airfares for the duration. We know there are quite a few more people that have booked as most we met were return guests and were intending to do the same this year. If anyone can enlighten us about this we would be grateful."

"Stayed for a week 4/11 Dec '14 .a superb hotel in a quiet location.
the hotel consisted of 3 connected circles with a "bite " taken out of each. this meant that every room faced the sea and the sun. some rooms got the sun first thing in the morning others later in the day.each circle had pools.
the food was very good with up to 6 chefs preparing food before your very own eyes ! out of the front of the hotel was a row of small shops/car and bike hire premises.out the back on to the prom,turn right to a selection of watering holes.turn left to the resort center/ferry port.opposite the ferry port where the taxis waited was the excellent " sandwich shop " where you could get something to keep you going before your next meal."

Excellent hotel but be careful with room choice
"This is the hotel with the "F" factor
Fabulous food - all inclusive is a must
Fun entertainment Ducky and his gang do a Fair job the kids love it.
But - there has to be one!
The one "F" we did not appreciate was the Fumy generator which is located underground behind the rooms we were given, this would jump into action at various times through the day or night.
Having no air conditioning we preferred to leave the bedroom window open in order to take benefit of the fresh warm breeze, this was not good practice when the machine started up through the night sounding like a helicopter hovering above, with the exhaust filling the room with diesel fumes.
The management have attempted to hide these rooms behind two lovely thick trees which unfortunately also hides most of the sea view when you are sitting on the balcony.
They made some attempt to ensure we did not sleep too heavily with the provision of the hardest beds ever experienced but the staff were extremely accommodating in providing extra blankets in order to "soften" the bed
We would definitely return providing that we could specify the room before booking."

Nice hotel, shame about the stench
"We have just returned from this hotel, we were 5 people in three rooms, we requested adjoining rooms on a high floor, we got completely separate rooms on low floors. One room was next to a pump house which came on and made a lot of noise until it had finished its job, sometimes it ran all night, the reception staff said it was the first complaint they had and said that it was the air con to the kitchens ( this turned out to be untrue)one of the staff suggested seeing the Thomas Cook rep and asking to be moved to another hotel. The occupants were moved to another room which had a different problem, they moved nearer to another of the party who had complained of a "sewage" type smell, it was not in the least bit pleasant. The reception staff had told her that this was the first complaint they had ever had on that subject,It turns out that the hotel reclaim all the used water and re-use it in the toilets and on the land, the reclamation plant is behind the rooms in question. The answer on your site to a previous writer was devious to say the least as it is most certainly an internal problem and nothing to do with the weather and everything to do with the hotel trying to boost their "green" credentials.
The food was good, the pools good, the "apartments" were a good size and the front line staff (with the exception of reception) were excellent. "

"just returned from 9 night stay at lanzarote park.Travelled with my husband we chose this hotel because of its location.The hotel is right on the seafront and is close to bars restaurants as well as playa blanca itself.We had a lovely room overlooking the sea and a perfect view of fuertoventura.The hotel itself is not one of luxury like timanfaya palace which is nearby and a 4 star ,but the staff are wonderful and cant do enough for you.We went all inclusive and the food was excellent with a great choice and would suit everyone.We would definitely recommend this hotel and playa blanca is in my opinion the best resort in lanzarote."

"We have just come back from a week in Lanzarote park hotel, very clean, well situated, close to the beach and shops, the staff were helpful and welcoming, the only problem is if you wanted to go self-catering you would have had a bit of a problem. The cooking utensils were very limited to say the least, you would have had a job to cook a meal for a family."

Just returned from Lanzarote Park, Playa...
"Just returned from Lanzarote Park, Playa Blanca. Location of hotel is excellent, seafront, and just 5-10 minute stroll into town centre. We were however, disappointed with self catering facilities. Kitchen is located within a cupboard, and consists of a sink and 2 electric rings, not even an electric kettle,we had to hire that from the hotel. There weren't even any cooking utensils, just one small fying pan, and not enough cutlery or cups for the 3 of us who went,( myself, my husband and 19 year old daughter). We mention this because it isn't made clear that self catering facilities are basic to say the least, and if anyone is expecting to be able to prepare a meal, forget it! The hotel is really geared towards those who are on half board or all inclusive basis. Considering that Thomas Cook rate this hotel as 4 star, I would have expected better. Having said that, there are loads of restaurants and bars to choose from and we found the majority really reasonably priced. Playa Blanca is a lovely resort and we will definitely return, but maybe not to this particular hotel."

"We have recently come back from a weeks stay at the Lanzarote Park, and would recommend this hotel and area to our friends and family. The hotel caters for everyone but mainly Germans. (This wasn't a problem at all)
The rooms were clean modern and welcoming and all have a pool/sea views. The beach was fantastic as it was approx 5 mins walk away. The local Irish bar was very welcoming and had entertainment on every night, the drinks were very large and the food was good also! We ate in different restaurants each night along the front and enjoyed all.
It gets a bit chilly on a night sitting in the bars but after another glass of wine who cares.
We would come back to this hotel in the future if we stopped there again.

"In a nutshell, an excellent location, very good hotel and fascilities, friendly polite staff and reasonable food. I would recommend that you upgrade to all inclusive which cost â¬19 per day for adults and there is no mininum number of days. Beer, soft drinks, water and ice cream are all self service at the pool bar and 3 wines are avaible at lunch also self service. Lots going on for adults and especially for children during the day. Adult entertainment not so good at night. If you just fancy having a drink and watching the world go by I would recommend the Kings Head in Playa Blanca Town. The town and the harbour are a short stroll away along the lovely promenade. The shops are pretty good in Playa Blanca. There is also a good golden sand beach nearby. The only reason that I could find for this hotel being only 3 star is there is no air conditioning anywhere. Fans along with other essentials can be hired. All rooms are large and have a fridge(very handy) and a sea view. Lots of room around the 4 swimming pools. The food was always hot with a reasonable choice, and with show cooking of meat and fish.
I booked this hotel as a last minute choice and couldn't of been happier, can't wait to go again."

"Just back after 2 weeks self catering in the Lanzarote Park.
Overall, an excellent hotel set in great surroundings and in a brilliant location. A very big complex, bigger than you will probably expect , with the main section kept for the all inclusive guests.
A lot of foreign guests, especially Germans, so if you are wanting a sunbed near the pools, get up early and get your towels down!!! I seen a few up as early as 7.30am putting thiers down, despite the Hotel apparently having a "no sunbed reservation" policy.
The Hotel section we stayed in had 3 pools, 2 children and one main. All the pools were very cold when you got in but you got used to it. Just go to the beach about 100 yards way and get a couple of sunbeds for 4 quid, clean and safe for the kids.
Very basic self catering facilities within the room but they do the job as we didn't intend cooking that often anayway. The restaurants near the Hotel are excellent, especially the Beach Club and the Asain/Steakhouse with the bouncy castle for the kids. All good food at very reasonable prices. Also try the Irish Anvil pub just down the road, very nice but the portions are huge.
Overall, a good clean complex with maid service 6 days a week.
Would go back again and recommend this Hotel to anyone."

We travelled for the first time with are...
"We travelled for the first time with are nine month old son and Thomas Cook holidays who were fantastic, as a travel agent myself it is really nice to go on holiday with a package operator and all runs smooth.
Firstly when you travel with Thomas cook they give you an extra 10 kilos luggage allowance for baby stuff for free - what a life saver.
Well onto the hotel - Overall the hotel was very good clean and tidy, the maids come every day apart from there day off, the room was spotless.
The views from the hotels balconies are amazing, the balconies are very large, and it was great in the afternoon to sunbathe on while my son had a sleep.
The hotel is only a ten minutes walk to playa Blanca centre with plenty of restaurants if you are on self catering, you can also catch the ferry across to Fuerteventura.
The food at the hotel was very good (no bad tummies) even are son ate the food with no problems, the only down side was at lunchtime were the food was a little limited. The only thing I found with the food it caters a lot for the Germans and Dutch, but you will always find something to eat.
The staff on reception were excellent; in the restaurant they were more friendly towards the Germans!
The only thing missing from this hotel is air conditioning.
Overall an excellent hotel, I would probably go self catering though next time to have more selection, but would defo go with Thomas cook again, and the agency I work for is not Thomas cook!
We did not bother with the entertainment but from what I seen we didnât miss much."

Too many Germans
"Went in May 2007 for a week self catering. Found the rooms to be very poor for cooking, TV had all german channels but they gave the brits CNN! Great!!
The entertainment was the funniest thing i've ever seen!!!! Miming to Saturday Night Fever. No really the entertainment was the worst i've ever seen. I was sat there laughing and looking round the room at the Germans who seemed to think it was good. The entertainment staff didn't have good english because they catered for their foreign guests and not one of them had any talent.
I you are british i suggest you go to the Irish bar round the corner where the food is great, the staff are friendly and they have live music at night.
Don't forget your jumper for the evening as it gets cold!!"
