“Good basic value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Clean, nice staff and decent food(breakfast). Barcarola does the simple things well. Book and you wont be disappointed. The complex is very close to the shore and minutes walk to the main strip. There are several nice restaurants right on the doorstep(try Antica, Woodley's or Bollywood.

Enjoyed another great stay at the Barcarola. If you need a relaxing holiday with no stress and a very good hotel / apartment then this is the place to be. The rooms are clean, and have all the amenities that you need to either stay self catering or room only. As I have stated before in previous reviews, we have been coming to the Barcarola for years and we visit Lanzarote every 3 months, this is the ONLY place we will stay. Its peaceful, safe and relaxing. Your rooms are cleaned EVERYDAY and depending on your choice, your towels will be changed daily, the complex is clean and tidy and the staff are so friendly. This is no typical holiday accommodation where they stack them high and sell them cheap, its a very decent complex, and for this you do pay a little extra compared to the "average apartment in PDC" if your looking for a crazy booze filled holiday then this is not the hotel for you, if you want peace, tranquillity, great location, clean accommodation with all the amenities both at the complex and locally then this is the place to be. You will see the same people here time after time. The Barcarola is in my opinion and yes I maybe biased after all these years one of, if not the best in PDC. On a final note if your not happy with anything, don't go around shouting about it, just go to Reception and they will go out of their way to resolve any issue no matter how big or small.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

I won't go on about the excellent standard of accommodation, the helpful and discreet staff or the ideal location and atmosphere. Others have done all that a lot better than I could. And its all true.

Instead, I will say that when we arrived ya were greeted with 'welcome back' even though it's been 2 years. So. That shows they took the trouble to research this. They gave us the apartment next door to the one we had before. No coincidence. They wanted us to feel we were back in familiar surroundings and among friends. We had a nice letter from the management saying effectively this.

No surly bar staff or pushy animation team. Just friendly efficient people there when you needed them.

Just brilliant. Magic holiday. Thank you.

See you soon.

Steve and Deanna.

Spent a pleasant week here just one week ago.
Place kept very clean, neat and tidy as the apt was, which was cleaned everyday.
No atmosphere much around the bar, closed early in the evening.
Kiddies playground was a slide and swings, thought it would have been bigger from reviews
Breakfast very average and the coffee from the machine was easily the worst cup of coffee I have ever had in my life. The juice from the machine was awful, just had breakfast here the once. Lady there was very nice.
Location ok, its the far end from the old town, a good 30 min walk, thought it was closer with veryone raving about how good its location was.
Nice but wouldn't stay again, reckon you could get similar apt for at least 150 e less for the week.

Room Tip: Pool view but no sunshine at all in block e at any time of day.

The other reviews some it all up really. Great location so near to everything and yet so quiet you wouldn't believe it. Set in lovely gardens - everything spotlessly clean and well kept. All the staff are absolutely brilliant - I really can't emphasise that enough - so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and lots of choice - worth the money. The only down side for us was the lack of air con and if you are on the ground floor you are advised to keep the windows closed so if it is very hot I should think this would be uncomfortable. It was just about OK when we were there this week. This place is not the Ritz - it has simple ameneties - you won't find any nice stuff in the bathroom or pool towels provided etc but it is a little gem - very comfortable and what it does do it does very well indeed. We had a great time and would definitely go back.

We are a family of 4 who have just returned from a week self catering at these apartments. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. We found these to be very spacious and cleaned every day. The one we stayed in had 2 balconies overlooking the pool. These are probably the nicest we have stayed in Lanzarote, quiet but only a few steps from the main road where there are excellent bars and restaurants. Special thanks to Sam the Activity co-ordinator for keeping the kids occupied. Had read the other reviews of these apartments on tripadvisor and have to totally agree , will definately be back next year !!!
