“It was great repeat stay - thanks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Our 3rd stay in a pool view 2bedr apartment. Couldn't have asked for more!. Everything was spotless even though showing signs of classic construction. Walkable to most of everything.. local supermarket, bars, restaurants, beach and local bus to Palma. If you want it there is a varied entertainment programme but be early for the sunbeds! Everyone was helpful and most accomodating. Definitely going back next year. A find this year was Port Adriano with the millionaires yachts.. you can take the local bus in 20 minutes - well worth going for a drink/meal but a can be a bit pricey.

Room Tip: There is limited road traffic around the apartment due being at end of the block but request high fl...

Meant to write on here upon my return but been a little busy. We stayed at the Roc Portanova at the beginning of June for 10 days. Its hard finding the right hotel especially with little ones so I spent plenty of time reading various reviews on hotels. So glad I decided to pay a little more and pick this hotel. Perfect location, not too noisy but restaurants and beach on your doorstop. Nice pool for the kids with activities on throughout the day for them and a pool bar that served reasonably priced food for lazy days. We split our time, 50/50 beach/pool, lovely beach, literally across the road with a kids play area on the sand too. Really cannot stress enough how happy we were with this, the hotel, its a 3* don't expect 5* services, regular cleaner service etc, the beach was beautiful, plenty of restaurants nearby, lots of kids areas and lots of zebra crossings which is handy with little ones. I am so pleased I have found somewhere I would happily go back to, it was just perfect for us, in every sense. Also, I did send an e-mail asking for a sea view apartment over the harbour so we had something to watch when the kiddies went to bed, which the hotel gave us. It was so beautiful in the mornings to wake up to such a wonderful view from your bedroom. Like I said, its a 3 star, but one of the best I have stayed in, kids want to live there now!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view of the harbour/sea as oppossed to the pool

We were prepared for the worst after reading a few reviews here, but frankly we were in for a good surprise. Rooms were neat, clean - we asked for a double bed with 2 twin beds in each. We had ample closet storage space for 5 days and the fridge+cutlery+other kitchen amenities were quite satisfactory. These actually brought down our collective costs a lot and gave us the option to store things like food/drinks etc. Bathroom was clean too - towels were changed twice (3 fresh towels in 4 days). The location is fantastic - bang on Palmanova, opens out to one of the most beautiful beaches you'll ever see. Room view was fab too, we were overlooking the indoor pool area which had kids/teenagers/parents/youngsters. There was a table tennis table and two GREAT massage chairs in the reception. Internet is very affordable. Staff were seriously helpful and friendly, even at 3am :)

We would definitely return here!

Really, really enjoyed Portonova Appartments and Porto del Carmen - albeit Lanzerote lived up to its reputation as the breezy island! We had a great Appartment which was situated near the old harbour area housing a number of 1st class restaurants - particularly if you are into fresh fish, enjoying fantastic views. Portonova complex was quiet but with minimum depth of only swimming pool 1.6 meters not ideal for small children or non swimmers. We were well looked after by John and Mags who have only recently taken over the Pool Bar. We'll be back to Lanzerote and even the Portonova Appartments providing all we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

We stayed in this hotel in a one bedroom apartment with my wife and son. The real beauty was the location. The lovely sandy beach is at door step, lovely restaurents (spanish/italian/indian/chinese/japnese) within walking distance. As it was family holiday, all the convenience stores were nearby with a supermarket. The booking experience with lowcostholidays was very good. The website offered good and genuine description about this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for swimming pool view. Most of the rooms have that view and you can then enjoy sunshine whole d...

Just arrived back from 2 weeks in these apartments and while, as mentioned in previous reviews, they could do with updating, we were really impressed by the staff, in particular David and the bar man (Josef, I think?!) They cannot do enough for you, which really does make up for the dated rooms, although they were much larger than I expected.
Definitely ask for a higher room as these give superb views of the beautiful beach and marina.
Rooms were cleaned to a good standard every other day, plenty of towels and shower gel, soap etc. Well equipt with good cooking facilities, although we did eat out most of the time. Pools nice, although VERY Cold! (didnt seem to bother the kids though!) Fabulous location,well kept, very clean throughout.
All in all, would recommend to families wishing to get away for a cheap holiday. (dont expect The Ritz, if you dont pay for The Ritz!!!!)
On the negative side, the beds were very hard (ok if you like that sort of thing!) and the noise from apartments above can be annoying at times if your want an early night.
