BUNGALOW

Great hotel for families and couples it was a bit quite but nice. All the staff are very friendly and the people we met there are awesome. The hotel is close to the town centre and beaches just remember to turn right when you exit the hotel or you will be walking for some time. I wouldn’t bother going to Futerventura you pay just to go on ferry ride because the people tell you there’s a market over there but when you get there is more to do in playa Blanca

Just returned and it is a joke... All inclusive your allowed to order only two drinks in small glasses not allowed pints, the food is very poor, residents had food poisoning whilst we were there, the cleaner came around every other day but only to make bed didn't clean anything else, had to hire a kettle for our room, got to pay to watch TV channels, there is real poor children's entertainment, the hotel needs to be closed down really you have been warned.

Entertainment good for children but not much for adults, food in restaurant was bland and never hot always warm no matter if you got there 1st or early it was always warm, also same thing everyday, even though we were all inclusive we ate out in town, our chalet was very out dated, and bedding was awful discoloured white cover, itchy old out dated blankets, this day and age we would expect duvet or at least more modern bedding, and the fridge was rusty, seen better at our local tip, we were disappointed with our holiday and will not go again or recommend this one.

We have just got back from the Corbeta Hotel. The staff were on strike due to not being paid,they never came back apart from to picket outside again, the ones that stayed were rude,ignorant. The all inclusive is a joke they penny pinched at every chance they got trying to limit you to how many drinks you could have, you had to pay if you wanted a pint and although the bar was open till 12.00 the all inclusive stopped at 11.00 they would not give ice-cream to the kids until enough people complained. I would not go back if you paid me to. The only nice people were the two people left to entertain the kids & the English waiter.

I stayed at the Hotel Corbetta, in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. I arrived to find that I was the only English person stopping at this hotel, the other people in the hotel were elderly Spanish, German and a family from Holland.

The bath had mould around the sides and was chipped on the base of the bath and had gone rusty. I complained about this and an odd job man came and painted over the rust. The fridge was also rusty inside, which I also complained about.

The food was average. I was told that I had to pay for the ice cream, though in the brochure it said that it was free for all inclusive. The entertainment was mainly line dancing, in Spanish. I did join in, as I was so far out from the main town; I was advised by reception staff that It would be dangerous for me to go out of the hotel alone at night.

Playa Blanca is beautiful and the trips I went on, were good, though the hotel charged more, than others on the trip had paid. Some of the reception staff were unhelpful and others were good. The staff told me that they feared for their jobs as there was going to be some changes, though I saw the managers son enjoying and drinking the profits with his friends, who were rowdy and rude among people staying there and appeared cocky with staff in front of his friends.

I hope very much something has been done since my stay at this hotel. I did make an official complaint when I got home.

We stayed in a modern, newly reconstructed bugalow type superior, the furniture was poor, but o.k.,

The two electrical bulbs in the living rool were of 40 Watt, we changed to 100 Watt ourselves, than it was o.k.We heated the living room in the evening by the hair-drier of my wife, than we were happy and had a fine time with Cerveza and Tinto.

The breakfast was English and continental, with vegetables, tomatoes cucumber, just like we love it.

The evening buffet was superb, every day something new, all tasting very well, we were really happy.

The entertainment didn't interest us, because we are already elder people 66/67.

Hotel stuff was as friendly as necessary.

One pool was heated up to 26/27 centigrades, fine to swim.

A last minute booking on 29th December, we stayed here over the new year period for a week. Where to start!

Overall we had a decent time and a good rest. The hotel has some really good points. It is very well set out with a fantastic pool area with plenty of sun loungers albeit without mats, so a bit hard after a while. One of the many pools was heated, which was a bit of a godsend in December as the unheated ones really were freezing.

We have two daughters 8 and 6 and the eldest finally plucked up the courage to go on the water slides albeit with cold water! (Would be great fun in the Summer). All the rooms were single story one bedroomed apartments which were scattered around the pool area and were kept very clean by the maids at least 5 times a week.

We were all inclusive but there was a microwave, two electric rings, fridge and plenty of cups, cutlery etc. The food was a bit of a let down in the self service restaurant i.e. most of it was only lukewarm and if you didn't like pork or chicken or fish, you had to fill up on chips which even the children can get fed up of after 3 days. The salads were good as was breakfast - fried and boiled eggs, bacon, beans (which were sometimes out of the tin!) and plenty of cereal. Dinner was a bit of a joke and never varied from day 1, just a scaled down version of the evening meal. Drinks were available all day with beer on tap and coke, orange, sprite etc for you to pull your own, in the pool bar during the day and from the hotel bar at night which saved a lot of queuing especially at night.

Other drinks were widely available apart from whisky and red wine in the bar at night. Strange that you could get red wine at the pool bar and in the restaurant but if you wanted it in the bar you had to pay for it, even though there were 5 white wines to choose from on the all inclusive menu!

We found the staff, especially the bar staff, to be very friendly and liked to joke with the children who thought they were great. Reception staff were also good, not being sexist but the guys more so than the women in being efficient.

We had a bit of a problem with a coat rail which fell down and we had to ask twice for it to be fixed. The rooms were basic and looked like they could have done with a bit of a spruce up, especially the bath which had seen better days, again the shower rail fell down but I managed to wedge it back up! and the television ceased to work towards the end of our holiday.

Entertainment was very poor apart from the guys who ran the mini disco which the children enjoyed. The live entertainment consisted of a spanish duo who sang virtually the same set of songs every night. They couldn't harmonise, had to use the words, and pronunciation was dreadful. But I heard they were only there for two weeks and from January there is a new entertainmnet team in the hotel so it might get better.

Location was poor for walking to the sea front and took about 15 - 20 minutes along a busy road or across a gritty unlit shortcut to get down to playa blanca. A taxi back was just under 3 euros but was worth it for the kids sake.
Weather wise we had three sunny days and 4 cloudy days but a constantly warm temperature of about 65 degrees, which felt warmer out of the wind.

I have put that we wouldn't return to this hotel but we did have a good time and if it were to have a refurb then we might be tempted again!
