Stayed here from the 22nd-29th July, this was our first time in Lanzarote. This hotel provided a very welcoming atmosphere which allowed us to have a very enjoyable stay here. There are few negatives but there are worthy of mentioning. Firstly the wifi is not the fastest- don't expect to get it from your rooms, it only really works in... More

After a very stressful start to our holiday we were relieved to stay in such a lovely hotel.. We made the unfortunate mistake of choosing easyjet as our airline. We were bumped off our flight as it is there policy to overbook all their flights for extra profit.. Because of this we lost a day of our holiday with a... More

Stayed here in May 2015, to start with i'd like to say how friendly and relaxed this hotel is. Our party of six adults and two children had a fantastic week stay all inclusive. Our room overlooked both the pool and sea, possibly the best view I have ever had from a hotel room. The food was plentiful. Obviously there... More

This is our second visit to Sandos Papagayo and our fifth in this area of Lanzarote. We stayed at Gran Castillo 3x before, which I do prefer overall now. The hotel is large and has plenty of pools so you can swim without too many people bumping into you. A new feature for 2015 is the adult only pool area... More

First my 'negatives', and although I list a few, they are all relatively minor. More importantly, the negatives are outnumbered and far outweighed by the positives, and overall, this hotel deserves its 4 Star rating. NEGATIVES Swimming Pools The pools were open each day from 10:00 to 19:00. Although there were several signs prohibiting the reservation of sun beds, over... More
