We opted for Playa Blanca too, and have lived here for 2 months. We're very, VERY happy with our choice because it's a little quieter than other areas... but has everything within easy distance.
Playa Blanca is about half an hour from the airport (if you take the Femes road instead of the route around Yaiza. You need to try both routes though, as they both have spectacular views. Yes, it's really easy to get to, and is well signposted.
Shopping is absolutely fine in Playa Blanca. Everything you could need really. Yes, there's even a couple of half-decent clothes shops too. Oh, and as for the designer shoe shop on the beachfront... oh my!!!
Have fun exploring - and enjoy every moment!
We're in the UK whilst you're here, or we could've arranged a bit of a tour for you.
