4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2006

just arrived back from Lanzarote, stayed in Rosamar apartments. Decided to write a full review on these apartments since I could not believe the bad press they received researching them before I left. So much so I was apprehensive of arriving there. The bad reviews could not be further from the truth.

The apartments were located in one of the nicer areas in Lanzarote. I stayed there with my sister for a few days to escape the Christmas madness at home. The apartments were very clean, the staff were very helpful, gave us extra blankets, went out of their way to research a restaurant for us...etc.

Not being familiar with package holidays or resorts at all, I was pleasantly surprised. The apartments provide fresh towels, blankets, clean sheets, a safety deposit box key for a returnable fee as per most apartments.

The only bad aspect was that the satelitte went off and we had to watch cable tv in spanish before we got ready to go out in the evenings... other than that pleasantly surprised to say the least.
I would recommend them for a winter break, I would imagine the island in general would get a bit mental in the summertime, but I have to say It was lovely to get a bit of a winter recharge.

  • Liked — cleanliness and short walk to beach
  • Disliked — not much to dislike really
  • Tips/Secrets — if the spar nearby isnt open there are plenty of other shops nearby.

Booked through Falcon Travel for a spring week in Rosamar apts. Lanzarote. Two weeks before departure Falcon wrote informing us that renovations were taking place in a nearby complex and we may be subject to some dust and noise. We asked for a move to a different similar apt. complex. Falcon refused to facilitate us unless we paid a full cancellation fee of approx. €350. They said that they hadent caused the problem. Basically their attitude was take it or leave it. So with no options we went.
On arrival at the Rosamar (Sun 2nd.Mar.#103) we discovered that Falcons 3Falcon standard equates to 2 key Spanish standard.
Staff were friendly and helpful but the apartment needed a lot of T.L.C.to bring it up to standard.
Fridge turned off floor soaked.
Food items from previous occupiant left in kitchen.
Two blown bulbs in kitchen/sitting room.
Dirty hand prints on the wall.
Broken window in bedroom.
Filthy blankets in wardrobe.
Very limited cleaning service.
No coffee making facilities (had to hire).
Very tight pool area with lots of broken loungers.
As we needed a stress free break we dident freak out,just cleaned up and got on with our break in the sun.I know we should have complained on site but having already experienced Falcon Travels lack of care and in the interest of a low stress break we just got on with our holiday.
We have spent numerous holidays in the Canaries without reason for dissapointment but while the location of the Rosamar Apartments is excellent the management of the complex is lacking.

We arrived at the Rosamar Apartments on Monday 8th August 2005.On arrival we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the apartment and requested that the bathroom be recleaned.The sofa bed for the children was broken and rattled a lot at night. The kitchen had hardly any utencils. It was supposed to cater for 4 people but there wasn't 4 of anything - knives, forks, cups, plates etc. The pool was very clean and well looked after but a lot of the sun loungers were grubby and indeed some were broken.
