“good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

after a quiet family holiday this is the place to go,not 2 over populated resort. The children 11 and 14 almost had the pool to themselves although it was freezing cold and i could watch them at all times from our balacony which gave me time to relax with a book. the resort it self is kind of quiet we hired out bikes for two days and seen a lot of beautiful beaches past the air port all with safe bike paths. i have stayed in the main resort of poerto del carmen but i would prefer here as a family place. the apartments have no brush and a good lot of sand blows in they should look into this cause your feet do tend to get dirty the maids are excellent and i would recomend this place to anyone. I hope to back next year.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

MY husband and myself stayed here from 15th September for one week, weather was fantastic the people and staff very friendly. Met lovely friends Ken and Wilma and also a lovely family from Dublin George and Catherine and their great family. Outside of the appartment everywhere was spotless pool area restaurent etc all perfect. My only complaint would be the lack of maid service we had to ask on several occasions for clean towels and toilet rolls. The maid service was non existent but if you give the maids a few euros here and there you will be looked after. Apart from this we will return as the holiday was good value for money, a very enjoyable experience.

Room Tip: If you have problems climbing stairs request a ground floor

We stayed here in jan of this year (2011). i took my 8 week old baby and 4 yr old son. the apartment had a microwave which was great, . the complex does need a slight overall in terms of maintainace however we were informed whilst there that the complex was having a make over in the following months.
the food in the restaurant was fab and reasonably priced.
our rooms wasnt cleaned as much as we'd of liked but I think they are also going to look into this issue now as so many people have raised this point. I hope so anyway as we have just booked to stay here again this january coming!!!! so watch this space i'll be back with my next review soon!
ps reception staff were great and so were restaurant staff!! bedding and towels were clean too!! fab resort too with great restaurants, esp the new mexican in the square. great beach just 5 min away!
michelle! aka tan michelle!!

Room Tip: lower rooms are beside the pool! higher rooms good for wheel chairs and buggy access

we knew that we were going to a two star hotel and didnt expect a five star hotel..when we arrivied we were greeted by a very freindly lady at the reception five mins later we were asking for toilet rolls..this we had to do for the two weeks that we were there not only that we also had to ask for towels and sheets to changed. the cleanliness of the appartment that we stayed in was poor, we didnt even mind the torn curtains!!! if only they paid a little more attention to cleaning and changing towels sheets this would be an exellent hotel.

i have spoken to familys that stay at this hotel for the past twelve years and love it.if you have booked here dont be put off,do what we should have done and complain!!!

the food is not bad and the two ladys that waitress are very freindly.

too sum up it was our first trip to Lanzarote we will diffently be back but not too this hotel.

I was quite pleased with this place. The apartments were spacious and very cool at night. I had been concerned before i stayed about the fact that there was no air con especially because i was bringing my 2yr old daughter, but infact it was not needed. It so cool at night and there is a constant breeze in the day its perfect. I read previous comments about the beds being rock hard, and i found them comfortable, they werent hard at all. The food in the restaurant was lovely. Theres a small amount of weekly entertainment which is fair enough. The property is nice and quiet, very friendly and i felt very safe here. The complex is a nice size and had everything basic that you would need. The pools are great and the area included a pool table, some kids machines and a playground. San Marcial has its own supermarket which was a great bonus plus with really cheap prices. The downsides for me are the playground wasnt equiped for very young children between 2-4 and yet it has alot of space to possibly do so. There are alot of steps and concrete everywhere, nerve racking for having little kids playing around. The front doors of apartments had an unmerciful slam when windows were open, very dangerous with kids, no stopper or hook to hold door open. The poolside sunbeds were always taking, covered in towels every morning and hardly no one on them. Theres a sign up stating leaving towels on beds the night before is not allowed but early morning is the same thing. I was there for 2weeks with my partner our two kids and my dad and we never got a bed. Overall it was a good place and i would definately return. Very close to beach, and very close to airport, and 5-10mins in taxi from puerto del carmens lively main strip.

Room Tip: apartments on the grounds by the pool will almost certainly guarantee you a sunbed especially those...
