Great location . Staff helpful but none speaking English or only basic. Room basic and noisy on front but fab view. Kitchen a bit basic had to ask for utensils and a sink plug but was sorted. Showers no good only tiny water tank so race against time and long hair a nightmare.

Only stayed here for one night but really lovely apartment with amazing views, nice touch to have bottled water and heart shaped lollies in the room. Hotel was full but never heard or saw anyone else so really quiet, had a few drinks down the road in the Heineken bar, lovely bar playing modern spanish music. Would definately stay here... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were basic and not very upmarket . If your looking for comfort doesn't really tick those boxes. Furniture was budget made out of crates, cheap and cheerful but not very relaxing for lounging around but everything was clean and welcoming. There was no air con or warm... More

Our first trip to Lanzarote and this accommodation will be so hard to beat if/when we return that we probably won't even try. The location is superb, although being on a higher floor (we were on the first) would be an advantage. All of the staff are delightful. We saw them mainly via the front desk, which is staffed round-the-clock,... More

I spent 20 nights here and reviewed it partway through, very fairly I thought but after ending my holiday and picking up some useful tips n tricks I thought I had better pass these on. DONT let the parking be an issue. DONT pay €8 to park. If you can't park down the back streets then do what we did.... More

I agree with Les L below! So this is just a summary with a few additions. The entrance is hard to spot and the building must be 60s or 70s. The owners are great. All the apartments face the sea and it's a bit noisy at night. There's a lift. The decor's simple but fine. The beds face the main... More

We like budget apartments that are similar to those of the local inhabitants, to get a feel of how they live, rather than be cosseted in a tourist environment. Islamar fit the bill perfectly. It may not suit everyone, but it very much did us. Arrecife is a wonderful, workaday town, which welcomes tourists whilst going about its everyday business... More

ISLAMAR also own accommodation in Puerto Calero. Some of this accommodation is very good, some less so. We have stayed with ISLAMAR there on two occasions when we were put in the Noray block which is very modern and nice with a good swimming pool. We were very happy and booked to go again in September 2014 but this time... More
