Weather

We travelled to Playa Blanca in October 2013, most days cloudy to start with, clouds moved over bringing glorious sunshine, lovely weather.

Holiday

Playa Blanca is a lovely place to stay, there is a great choice of restaurants and shops, great for families and the beaches are wonderful. We have booked a return trip in October 2014, can't wait!

Places Recommended

Da Vinci's restaurant in Playa Blanca, Italian at it's best, service is wonderful, looks out on to the sea.

The weather was excellent. We were there in early March. Lots of sun, a few clouds and 25mins of rain. Average temperature was about 24 -25. Perfect for getting about and /or lying about by the pool

Holiday

We stayed all inclusive in the Iberostar Papagayo.
Excellent hotel...we booked straight up to go back the same time next year.

Places Recommended

The "Plaice in the sun" a lovely little English fish and chip shop.
The market in the marina.
The lovely promenade that goes on for miles

Weather is normally good not as windy in Oct/Nov as other months. You can get some cloudy days and a few spots of rain but it does not last long! We normally get a really nice tan you just cannot beat it!

Holiday

My family and I have been going for nearly 30yrs as we have a timeshare in Playa Blanca 'Las Casitas' which we have a beautiful two bed villa a pool, tennis court and our own bar. It is only two minutes from the beaches and bars/shops etc. If you go to the Wimpen website we let out weeks to rent so you can see all timeshares are not a rip off!"!

Places Recommended

The marina in Playa Blanca has a market on Wednesday and Saturdays not only to buy gifts but sit and have a drink looking at all the wonderful boats! Eat at our favourite restaurant Romantica in the centre of Playa Blanca book a table first by the window looking out to sea......wonderful food!!

Hot but not sunny, very cloudy. (July 2013)

Holiday

Just returned from Playa Blanca and although the place is lovely,( my second visit), the weather was hot but overcast nearly every day. Could of done with seeing the little old sun in all its glory but believe me you can still get sunburned with it behind the clouds. Wind didnt bother me and was nice really, but lack of sunshine was disappointing. Pool took a long while to warm up.

Weather

The first few days of the holiday were extremely windy. We have found that this is a very windy Island at the best of times, however the first 4 days were awful.

It has since grown extremely warm - too warm for my liking. Today is much cooler with a lovely breeze.

Holiday

Great as usual! It is our fourth stay in Playa Blanca during the last 18 months.

We ususally come for 2 weeks, however this time we are fortunate to stay for 3 weeks.

Fabulous restaurants, lovely people, quiet, no boy / girl gangs. Fabulous!

Places Recommended

To be honest, the only bad meal we have had here was at Casa Pedro's, which came highly recommended. We ordered paella and this was served to us burned.
On reflection we should have sent it back, however we ate around the burned bits.

Needless to say we have not re-visited.

The owner was grumpy - maybe this was a one off?

We find the new Italian on the hill (last restaurant on Maithe n road very good. It has only been open a month. The food is lovely.

Also Volcan Timanfaia along the front is excellent!

Weather

We went in May 2010, and the weather was glorious! Went for 7 days and it was in the low 80's everyday, a couple of days it was higher but there was always a welcoming breeze.

Holiday

We stayed in a villa with pool (via James villas) on the Faro Park Area, the villa was excellent in everyway, spotlessly clean, beds very comfortable, rep very helpful, pool cleaned once a week (By David.A Diamond!), really didn't want to come home. Infact rebooked going back in Dec 2010...and May 2011!!!

PS. A short stroll to the end of the road and you'll experience some unbelievably fabulous sunsets across the ocean.

Places Recommended

Everywhere! You wont be dissapointed whereever you go. Lighthouse cafe/bar, excellent meals great value for money, very friendly staff and 'Fishy Friday' is a must!!

We arrived on the 19th November for a 2 week stay.

We stayed at the Sun Tropical Holiday Village.

Most of the 2 weeks was very sunny and warm. Couldn't fault it.

Holiday

Good. Stayed at the Sun Tropical. Very clean, the poor maids must never stop.

The prices in the shop on the complex were astronomical. We knew prices had gone up but wow.

We stayed in Playa Blanca, nice place to stay.

Nice walk from the comlex to the beach at Papagayo.

Places Recommended

Timifaya.

A trip to Fuertaventura.
