“basic but very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2010

just returned from a week here . the apartments are very clean . my bed and towels were changed every other day . there was everything i needed in the apartment . i found the beds to be comfortable . they are the same all over lanzarote that i have experienced . dont expect to be the same as at home . i slept well every night with or without a beer . the gardens are kept very well too . the pool is not a great size but big enough .the photos on the hotel site are very accurate . the only thing i didnt say i liked was the sunbeds by the pool as you couldnt adjust them but then again i didnt use them much . the staff are very helpful and friendly . the apartments are a 3 minute walk to the local bars and restaurants in the square. the beach is a 5 minute walk with sunbeds at 5 euro for one and 9 for two with umbrella . very close to the airport but dont hear anything . they have a bar there but wasnt open when i was there maybe because it was very quiet . on the whole i would be quiet happy to return . any questions yo have feel free to e mail me . enjoy i did

Planned to stay there for a month on a chill out break, so was looking for something quite and friendly. Did quite a bit of research and weighted my decision based on previous Tripadvisor reviews. I have to say they were all pretty accurate. The place was perfect for my needs and the staff and management could not have been more friendly or helpful. Got to know them all quite well. Only down side was lack of english channels on TV, but that was not really an issue for me. Would highly recommend to others and I would certainly stay there again.

just returned from lanzarote with my partner my daughter and her boyfriend,we stayed at guacimeta hotel,we were half board but would have gone self catering and saved some money as no meals were served in the hotel,we had to walk to commercial centre 10 minutes away. It took 2 days to find it,only to find a very limited menu so we cut our loses and ate out. We only used the hotel for showering and sleeping really. There was no bar or entertainment either.My daughter and her boyfriend stayed at sol lanzarote which was really nice. All in all we had a good holiday,would recommmend.

we have stayed in these apartments at least 4 times and they are a mixture of hotel and self catering. Meaning that there are toileteries available in your apartment and a large bottle of water has been left for you. Last time we were there, we understood that the complex is being sold so we do not know what it'll be like the next time we go on holiday.
The area of Matagorda is very quiet but that's fine by us as we hire a car and travel the island. Easy parking at the Guacimeta too and a 5 minute walk down to the beach and shops.

Just returned home from 7 night break at Guacimeta, Matagorda. What a disappointment, these apartments are. The apartments are the smallest, we have ever been in. Most hotel rooms are larger! They say in the description, full bathroom with shower, there is NO bath. They also say washing machine, iron and board, none of the items are there. No kettle, no oven / microwave. Also TV, one English channel, BBC World News. Maid service was few and far between. Reception opened every now and again, some days not at all. When reception is closed, you cant get to internet access. There was on site SUPERMARKET, it only sold water,soft drinks, all warm because no working fridge.....There was a cafe/bar, it never opened for the 7 days. We also paid extra when booking, to UPGRADE from ECONOMY to STANDARD. It was an extra £35. BEWARE all 58 apartments are exactly the same. Dont be fooled!!!!!!!!!! Been to Matagorda several times in the last 3 years, love the place and had a fantastic holiday, but would NEVER go back to Guacimeta.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2009

these apartments were lovely (just too small for our family of 5 - 2 adults 2 children 1 baby in cot)so we chose to leave BUT for couples or maybe just 1 child also its ok as they only have 1 bedroom then there is a sofa bed in lounge but when this was up there really wasnt room to move- but they were very clean and well maintained (kitchen only had kettle, toaster, 2 ring hob though oh and fridge)- lovely staff- reasonably priced little supermarket- the snack bar wasnt open which wasnt surprising as out of the 50 of so apartments there was only us and an older couple so it was like being in a private villa!
pool area was dusty and bit grubby though (as in the floor) the pool was ok though (just freezing haha)
despite anything I may have said that is negative my husband and I both said had we been here before we had the children it would have been an ideal place to stay- we had a lovely 6 days here but then moved to the Nautilus Bungalows next door because they were 2 bedroomed and had the most amazing pool (but it was more money so you get what you pay for) oh and you had to pay for the television too(1 news channel in english that was it so dont bother) but we got it free in the nautilus..

Excellent Hotel, 5 mins from the airport, clean, basic & comfortable, 5 min walk to commercial centre. EUR 11.00 per person per night you can't really go wrong.

Staff are very helpful & can answer any questions you may have about car hire etc...

Only flaw was that the pool could have been cleaned more often, a few dead bugs & leafs but other then that no Complaints.
