Really friendly family run business. Pool table. Free Wi-Fi. Sports coverage on big screens throughout. Really fast service (especially the ice cold glasses of beer!). Excellent prices for both food and drink. Staff could not do enough for us. We have re-visited every time we stay in Lanzarote. Special thanks to Keith, Emma, Darren and all staff, See you all...

Only stopped here for food once, but it was nice. Breakfast is cheaper elsewhere, which is what put me off. Good though, and service was okay. Nothing to special, but it was always busy so they must be doing something right.

On the 5th visit to Puerto Del Carmen the Purple Turtle never fails to provide the best pint and amazing lunch ever! To sit in the sun and look at the sea with an ice cold beer and fantastic service is pure heaven! A big thanks to Emma, Keith, Darren and the rest of the friendly, helpful staff for looking... More

Found purple turtle after suffering from bland boring food at our hotel. Food here was lovely, plenty of it, staff very pleasant, free games of pool for grandson and his grandad, and Dime bar pud was to die for.

If I'm honest it was nothing special I ordered the standard British breakfast and a child's breakfast. At €3.95 for the breakfast offered not the best value for money. 1 sausage, 1 rash bacon 1 toast plate filled with beans and an old egg with flat egg white. The child's breakfast was grim no sausage and no beans? What's that... More

Visit the purple turtle more than once every time we go to PDC, as per usual the food was nice as ever and the staff were friendly. Final day of the football season for me was spent here, great coverage and you can sit in the sun while you do it. Free pool and wifi is a bonus!

Nice food, with very attentive staff but for the style of food it took along time was 45 minutes for a prawn salad, chicken & chicken curry would return though x
