“Nice place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2009

After some reviews i was pleasantly suprised.
The appartments were very clean and spacious.
We stayed in room 204, this was ground floor block 2, we had a good balcony which got the sun 11 till 4.30pm. before this you could go round the pool or just infront of the balcony there was a sun terrace.
There were plenty of bars and restaurant close by, we enjoyed Jinty McGintys ( very good value for food and drink, cheapest around) also Purple Turtle was very nice, good food and drink.
A nice restaurant is El Burro just up past the Purple Turtle.
Then a little further away on the strip we found a bar called Bluebells, upstairs which had very cheap lager and friendly staff. And for food La Ponderosa these are near the begging of the strip.
The work being carried out on the strip is due to be finished by the end of Feb, nearly 2/3rds of it is completed.
There is a lovely walk of about 2 miles across the cliff tops that takes you to puert Calero, to get to this you go past the Harbour and keep going about 5mins until and you will come to dark steps that is the start.

Read what other people had said about the La Florida Appts, we book the web,upon arriving at the appartments you go thru a large entrance with a supermarket on one side and Jinty McGintys on the other, but arriving in reception its well space out and very airy,if you have walking difficulties then this is not the place for you, you are then met with a large staircase to lead you to the pool level, but there is a side gate that we used all the time as we had a 14 month old with us too,so that was the one we used all day, its clean rooms are cleaned every other day, but you do have to put used loo paper in a bin at the side of the toilet!!! now please read on " IF YOU GET THERE AND YOUR ROOM STARTS WITH A 1 THEN PLEASE ASK TO BE CHANGED ASAP!!!!!" the pub below that i mention earlier on has a live act that comes on at 10pm, this is then followed by karaoke til 4am!!!i had to buy ear plugs from the chemist below, but the best pub i found was called the PURPLE TURTLE,its just up the hill as you come out of the side gate,cheap friendly and amazing beer!! please go you will love it!!

  • Liked — location
  • Disliked — the noise from the pub below if you was in a room starting with a 1!

My partner and i have just got back from a weeks stay, if you are thinking of going to lanzerote keep a check on the pound against the euro. It was a pound for a euro at the start of jan which made everything very expensive!
The entrance to the apartments is through a passage that is very shabby and grotty which is not what you want to see upon your arrival. The rooms were basic, clean and a little dated but are ok if you just want a cheap sunny getaway.
The one problem that was so annoying was the fact that the appartments did not have any sort of sound proofing, the first night we heard a fight going on in the next appartment, the second we were kept up for what felt like an age by someone snoring, you could hear every footstep in the corridors,every cupboard door bang, voices, toilet flushing etc and the odd headbord banging away.... ideal for youngsters. If you want to get some early nights then you will struggle as i was difficult before 2 am.

Well nice clean and tidy apartments, nice little touches like a small bottle of washing up liquid and a bottle of mineral water waiting as we arrived. They are not 5 star if you can suffer the odd chipped tile they are ideal. We have stayed in better apartments but not better for value. Overall great value for money and clean and tidy.

Just returned from a fortnights holiday in Old Town Puerto Del Carmen.
Apartments were basic but very clean. Found the receptionists to be pleasant and was a bit worried after reading some of the previous reviews but our experience was fantastic!
The pool area was great except actual swimming pool was very cold!
Please dont make the same mistake as us and miss finding the Purple Turtle until your last few days. When you come out of reception past the supermarket go up the hill not down to find The Purple Turtle. The family and staff were so lovely and the food was superb.
There are a lot of Irish bars in this area but generally found them to be abit more expensive. Nice Restaurants in the harbour and nice atomsphere.
In general a very good holiday, will be returning beginning of next year and heading straight to the Purple Turtle.

La Florida apts Porta Del Carmen Lanzerote.
Just returned from these lovely apartments, sept 2008, very clean, great helpful staff, not a lot to do for young children, but the kids were having a good time in the kids pool. I would go again in the future. The apts are up hill and can be difficult if you are not able bodied, though taxis are cheap to get to the beach. If you do visit these apats, try the Purple Turtle next door, the food is fab. I am 55, and could reccomend these apts to all.

One an excursion one day in Lanzarote we were told that the original name of Puerton del Carmen before they changed it to what it is now was translated into "scabby old lady." By day, this is certainly not true in respects to La Florida Appartments. By day, they are beautiful. the beds were comfy, the pool was brilliant, music was good, everything was GREAT!!!! However, by night "scabby old lady" suddenly appeared. The noise was ridiculous, i CERTAINLY wouldnt reccomend it for children as some noises were...well lets just say of adult nature. oh, and don't get up during the night as cockroaches freely roam (roach killer provided under the sink). I'd say that La Florida Appartments is much more suited for teenagers and young couples. Don't worry if you can't speak spanish as the receptionists, cleaners and bar staff all speak fantastic english (as does most of lanzarote :D )
My reccomendations:
Well worth a stay, it was a decent hotelthing.
DONT get up at night (unluess you like roaches)
DO go on an excursion with lastminute travel. And if you go on the short south tour and get a guide called Nick, tell him he's got a great review online coz he was AWESOME!
Do bring earplugs, to get a good night sleep :D
Hope this helps, enjoy your stay coz we did :D
