  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities

Playa Blanca has a new management. The room given was a suite, but it was somewhat old and not well kept. The elevator broke down a couple of times while there. The snack bar was lacking on food choices.

This has been the worse experience ever ever ever. My family and I have been to numerous all inclusive resorts with magnificent and superb customer services, cleanliness and hospitality but this place lacks everything you are looking for in a “wonderful”exclusive” “ family vacation”. Lets start off with mold on the walls, insects all over the hotel lobby, mildew on the shower heads, rusted kitchenware, sticky floors, absolutely no maintenance or upkeeping. Not to mention, the staff was rude and unhelpful, even got a few blank stares and eye rolls when asked for a glass of water at the dinner table. Our room had no hot water, no “wi-fi” access as promised and paid for, their excuse? Our room was located too far a distance from the router/modem. Zero room service or housekeeping, we were required to reuse the same towels day after day and night after night, when a new towel was requested they questioned what we did with the ones provided at check/in. Also, the pool that is opened till 8pm only provides towels to dry with until 6pm, we had to walk our small children wet and cold through the long course from the pool area to the room through the lobby hallways and elevators in wet swimsuits and dripping their trail behind. In addition, we were practically harassed daily by property vendors selling residential homes in this disgrace of a location, the price? 490k. A miserable and detrimental investment only a lunatic would consider. Esteban only employee with hospitality and heart
