Pretty and well maintained lagoon area
Jan 2020
We visited El Charco de San GInes on a cruise call to Arrecife. This is a pretty area with a large lagoon and lakeside walk, which is nicely maintained. There are lots of bars and restaurants where you can get refreshments, and its a pleasant spot to relax for a while.

Pretty area of Arrecife, boats, bars and bizarre statues
Dec 2019
I explored El Charco de San Gines as part of a pleasant stroll around Arrecife on a cruise ship visit to Lanzarote. It wasn't somewhere I had researched in advance, I just stumbled across it really, but was pleased I did.

It's a pretty lagoon area close to the centre of town, with plenty of bars and restaurants along one side, various boats bobbing around in the water, and some odd and slightly bizarre public art works and statues too.

It's a cool place to relax or chill with a drink, or just people watch. Worth checking out.

Great place to relax or eat
Dec 2019
We've been to El Charco on several occasions - it's a great place to relax and watch the world go by! There are many bars and restaurants here and, as usual, we stopped for lunch and a cool drink. It's also nice to walk all around the perimeter, stopping to admire the artwork and statues, and to watch the small boats bobbing up and down - lovely!

I wouldn't share a kitchen and bathroom again in this type of accommodation. You really are on top of the people you are sharing with. You can hear every door click, shower running and toilet flushing, crockery in the kithen clanking and conversation. I just didn't feel relaxed apart in my room. If your the gregarious type you might relish it but it wasent for me. Having said that the place was clean with all the kitchen gadgets you need and nice hot shower. My advice would be pay a bit more and get somewhere self contained. If your really unlucky you could end up sharing with some noisy neigbours.

Choice of restaurants and lovely outlook
Jan 2020
Delightful area to spend time for snacks,drinks, evening meals. La Estrella and Divina Italia are well worth a visit for evening dining and La Minoca is the best bar in the area to finish off the evening but warm clothes and coat for sitting outside essential in January.
