We booked this under the name "Marmara Playa Blanca" and it is managed by Tui which caters to a French crowd. We spent a week here for family holidays (4 adults and 3 children) and am quite satisfied with the value we got. As advertised, this is not a beach front resort, but boasts two large pools, one animated and... More

Cockroach in the bedroom. Eeoow. French hotel. Good fitness and aerobics, but unclean restaurant. Friendly staff though. Ok evening dinner not so ok breakfast. Can be a gem when club marmara (tui) gets things working.

Rooms near swimming pool Zen in the main floor are the best. The staff is very thoughtful. Everything is very clean. The animation team is highly motivated. breakfast is good a lot of choice but they have to make efforts for food

We found the Sun Royal (under previous management) about 6 years ago, and stayed every year; simple, basic but good. We have done self-catering; quick walk into town for lovely meals. Rooms nothing fancy, only criticism is the mattresses are a bit hard...but cleaners come in daily if you want, kitchenette is all you need. Hot water when you want.... More

After 14 years staying at the Royal, the day before we were due to fly we were told we had to go to the Tropical Hotel, because some French people had got our apartment. We usually stay for 3 months and have done for 14 years. The Tropical was a decent hotel but could be very noisy!
