Las Casitas Resort
We previously booked a private villa elsewhere in Playa Blanca, but changed our minds as we were concerned the villa would be a little remote for our 11 year old. What luck we changed to Las Casitas! On arriving we had a great welcome with a very thorough introduction to the site. The bungalow was spacious inside, we had a one bedroom for 4 (sofa bed in lounge), a welcome bottle of wine was on the table to greet us which was a nice touch and everything was clean. Outside was a small patio with a bbq, outdoor table and a couple of loungers, and was great to sit out for lunch or late at night. The whole site is well kept, with nice gardens, a small play park, tennis court, basketball net and a good sized pool. The pool is very well kept with a pool guard on duty all day, it is a little regimented in terms of the use of balls, and inflatables for kids, we understood that as the age range varied and there were a few over 60s that have timeshare there and am sure pay towards the upkeep, however, there were days when it was just us in or around the pool so it felt a little overbearing. The site has a bar with excellent staff offering a friendly service, even offering some evening entertainment a couple of nights a week. Whilst we were there, each bungalow had replacement furniture in the lounge areas so everything is new. The site is a 3-4 minute walk to the nearest supermarket and perhaps 5 to the seafront, so location is great. We had a really good week and were very pleased with our stay, we would highly recommend this to others and would go back again.
