“Worth another visit very quiet this time of year”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Enjoyed these apartments very much good service and kept very clean. Pool was excellent and kept tiptop but pool bar closed the day we arrived which was very disappointing but would return the location found puerto del Carmel a bit too commercialised but coped with it. Anyone going please feed the cat who lives near the pool.

Thank you for your comments. First of all, we are sorry you had this bad impression of our apartments. But your opinion is very important for us to improve our service.

I just wanted to inform you that the problem about the sunbeds in Playa Grande is already solved. From the beginning of this summer, a new company is running this and there are plenty of sunbeds in Playa Grande. There were only two months without them, until El Cabildo chose the company for this.

Our Pool Bar was closed for 3 weeks, those were the holidays of Benjamin, our Pool Bar waiter and he chose them based on the low occupancy we had during that time. But the rest of the year it is openned almost everyday from 09:30 until 18:00 or 19:00. In our Pool Bar you will find a wide range of meals and drinks. He even cooks scandinavian plates.

Our reception is not 24 hours openned. This is not a hotel, but a complex of 26 apartments. That´s why we have a timetable and we close one day per week. But our phone number is always on our reception door just in case anyone has an emergency or wants to ask me for something.

Once again, thank you for your opinion and we hope to see you again staying in our apartments. I´m sure next time you will be more satisfied with our services.

Stayed here last week and found the apartment to be really spacious and clean. Lot of closet space, very good bathroom and kitchen. Quiet at nights but still with great location, near the beach and restaurants, shops etc. Small pool area but always enough of sun loungers, sun shine to the area from about 10.30am to 4pm. Wouldn't recommend to eat at the pool bar, great little restaurants and cafes nearby with much better quality and also cheaper. Would definitely go again to Puerto del Carmen and Isla de Lobos hotel!

Kiitos paljon!
Thank you very much for your opinion!
I´m glad that you had a good time in our apartments. It´s a pity you didn´t like eating in our Pool Bar. Our waiter, Benjamin, has changed the menu recently, adding many new dishes and almost everybody who eats there, repeats.
But, as you says, there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the avenue, so closed to where we are and our clients can choose among a wide variaty of foods

Once again, thank you very much and I hope to see you again staying in our apartments!

Stayed for 2 weeks late September early October with my wife.
We were so impressed by the quality of the apartment for what we payed, spacious, clean and great location for the beach and a 10 minute walk to the old town.
Very quite with just the pool and small bar, relaxing type of hols.
On the day of departure the Manager allowed us to keep the room until late afternoon with no extra charge.
If the heat at night bothers you could ask for 1st floor to get the breeze.

At the bottom of the hill are Murphys bar good Irish night, Sunset bar good for families.
As this was our first visit very impressed with Lanzarote.
Car hire at Rent a car around 20 euros a day all inclusive just down the hill

Room Tip: When booking some agents show a higher price for an apartment go for the lowest tarrif as all apartm...

Me an my partner stayed there from 22 to 29 September. Found the apartments to be modern spacious, clean, and had toaster, kettle, iron and ironing board and a coffee maker. Only made use of the kettle in the morning. Normally you woul expect to pay for the other items. Rooms were cleaned 5 days out o the 7. No air con which is the only negative. Although 3/4 full, apartments were quiet both day and night. Free wi-fi, staff very friendly and helpful. Location ideal as situated just a 5 minute walk from the Aveneida (main strip) which can be noisy. The big hill at the bottom of Guannapay from the Aveneida I would suggest is not suitable for those with mobility problems or pushchairs, however we did find a gentler route back home, you just need to explore! looking forward to going back to stay there again soon.

Great location, very quiet, staff lovely......if your looking for a quiet base for a relaxing holiday you could do a lot worse than choosing here. Would be better if they had air con but you can hire a fan for 15 euro. Not a lot to do at the hotel, very central and the rooms were spacious, the showers are cold sometimes but in hot weather I personally welcomed it. Never tried any of the "pub grub" offered as there were plenty of places to eat out.

Have now stayed at Isla de Lobos 4 or 5 times and standards are being maintained. Superb, central location (albeit at the top of a short but steep hill) with the beach and all the resort attractions within a few minutes walk. There's a supermarket virtually next door, with all the self catering essentials.

Apartments themselves are a good size, well equipped and comfortably furnished. Cleaning is 5 times a week. There is a pool and not a lot else, which suits me. No entertainment team, no bar (as such), but with all the resort has to offer pretty much on the doorstep, it's a peaceful haven of relaxation!

I'll be back again!
