Try it for yourself I will defo go back..
I had to leave a review after my most relaxing weeks holiday I have ever had. Rooms perfect, staff wonderfull, entertainment staff excellent, esp Dvd have to say we could have brought him home just for our own entertainment. All the thomas cook staff was excellent in keeping everyone busy by the pool all day and also evenings. Brilliant.
Food was great as even though was not always to my personal taste there was so so much to chose from you always had something to eat.
Location is a bit out the town but only 15 min walk down him which I managed no prob and just got a taxiback for less than 4Euro.
we have a teen and an 8 yr old and they both just dying to go back. The wee one was safe enough in waterpark plenty of super vision.
Moral of the story dont believe everythin you read, the reviews were awful we read.

Just arrived back from paradise island! Had an amazing holiday there! Rooms were spacious and very clean - as all inc didn't use self catering facilities but were available in rooms. Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful for anything you needed - spare sheets, first aid etc. Bar and restaurant staff also friendly. Self service soft drinks and beer made husband and kids happy! There was lots of choice for food - restaurants and bar food both great - as fussy eaters always found something! Themed nights in restaurant were good with Italian and Chinese alternating. Ice creams constantly available and cakes served most of the afternoon too. Supermarket next door available for bottled water which was very cheap and any extra snacks/extras!
Pools were a little cold for me but did not bother kids a all!! Dino park was a huge hit with the kids and all very safe and clean. There was no rush for sun beds or tables to sit on any occasion. Entertainment staff were great with lots of activities ( football, darts, quizzes, yoga, Games, dancing etc) if you wanted to join in but no pressure if not.
Short walk down to playa blanch which was lovely and made use of courtesy bus to playa dorada too.
The hotel is in a quiet spot which is exactly what we wanted and would love to return! Thank you paradise island!

Great family holiday
We had a spendid ten at this hotel although my children and other half was hard to please when eating. If you like Spanish food or German then you are sorted although there was omelettes made to order and nice meat but not too much to chose from.
Themed water park (Dino park) was amazing for kids, mine being 2,4,10,11.
It was a €4 one way in taxi to town.
Playa Blanca was beautiful, peaceful, shops, restuarants all lovely. Locals were lovely, (no one pestering you to buy anything or anyone offering hair braiding)!
Overall the hotel was lovely and we all had an excellent time.

Great Family holiday in Lanzarote
Great holiday although the weather didn't really cooperate! The hotel has great facilities and thankfully a heated pool, the restaurants were of great quality but the italian was 1st class. There were loads of activites during the day, Nickki was great with the kids sports, that added to the Thomas Cook entertainment staff they made sure we had a great holiday.
The water park is very good although it was too cold on most days for us to make great use of it. The facilites are good for both young and old as there is an area which caters for every requirement

Family Holiday in Lanzarote
Lovely resort with an amazing all inclusive menu there was most definitely something for everyone!! Clean rooms but the in room amenities were very poor the appliances did not work and it was a 2 bed apartment but only had glasses, cups etc for 2 people!! The Dino Park was amazing and our 2 year old grandson loved it!! Free bus to the beach and very regular. Internet facilities were very poor and although you had free wifi in the reception it was very difficult to get on it and very slow!! Internet that you could buy was available but I heard a few guests complain that it was just as slow so we did not bother. All in all we had a very nice holiday in Lanzarote not sure I would return there as I found the landscape very bleak but would definitely take another Thomas Cook package holiday!!

Great for all ages 4 months -83 years old
We were very worried about the hotel due to bad write ups. I can only assume that people would complain if they stayed in the RITZ. Entertainment excellent. Kim lots of fun, tracey good singer, ricky and rainer good with the kids. Lots to do in the day (if you want to join in) there is no pressue. Drinks were ok but Vodka only £8.00 litre bottle so if you get fed up with local drinks buy your own. Lovely walks along front could walk into town if you wanted too. Taxi only 3 euros.

Great value family holiday
12 - 19 December 2013 in a ground floor apartment, which are spacious, a little dated but kept spotless. No kettle but one provided upon request. No ants or other crawlies seen but quite a few cats. Pool areas clean, bar staff and entertainment team friendly and helpful.Waterpark slightly smaller than looks on photos but a lot of fun for kids nonetheless (my two are 13 and 3). Water slides great, toddler area clean, fun and safe. Beware, water ICY but didnt stop kids having fun. One heated pool which was much better. Food plentiful, just a bit samey after a while. AI drinks fine. Location a bit out of the way, nothing around it without a 20 min walk or taxi, free bus available. Really enjoyed relaxing family holiday, only recommendation is to heat one of the shallow pools for smaller kids to play safely
