We decided to have a short break away from the cold weather with a destination that was not long haul. Lanzarote fitted the bill. Turned out to be the correct decision.
The hotel was about 45 minutes from the main airport so transfer times were reasonable. The hotel itself was very good. The initial room we were allocated was a very nicely fitted out one but its outside aspect was not really to our taste; so we decided to ask if there was an alternative room available.The front desk staff were very accommodating and came up with an alternative.
We were offered what used to be self-catering apartments for four persons with its own pool in a complex across the road from the main hotel it was just what we wanted.
The hotel is not beach fronted but steps have been constructed in the cliff face and makes for a easy climb up and down(would estimate that there were twenty five steps max) these steps led to a floating pontoon which was excellent. There was a ladder on the pontoon for easy access in and out of the water. The water itself was teeming with fish of all different colours and sizes( the biggest was 18 inches long)so was great fun when snorkelling.
There were always sun loungers about and as the hotel was full this was a very pleasant surprise. We always managed to get a pair of loungers in our favourite spot regardless of what time we went to the pool area.
For those that like to stretch their legs the hotel fronts on to what we would describe as a promenade which stretched for miles and was very popular for those who hired cycles.
We couldn't fault the food at any time throughout our stay this was enhanced by the very efficient dining room staff who were always very helpful. On the subject of food and drink, this was always available throughout the day.
All in all we had a very pleasant time and would not hesitate to revisit this hotel.

Room Tip: Try for the "over the road" apartments.

Stayed at this hotel for a week in November on All Inclusive.
I go away 3 or 4 times a year as i work in the travel industry and i have got to say, this is one of the best All Inclusive hotels in the Canaries i have stayed.
Hotel is very clean, modern and the food is the best i have had. a Hige selection at breakfast, lunch and dinner time, with various themed nights also.
If you was to miss breakfast in the morning, or lunch, then you could go to the pool bar where they would have a small selection of hot food to choose from.
The entertainment was average and was shown at 2130 every evening.
I had a sea view suite which was overlooking the sea, so fantastic views when you wake up.
Location is a little bit out, there is a supermarket 1 min walk from the hotel and the marina where the boutique shops and a few bars are about 10 minutes walk, a further 25 min walk will bring you to the commercial centre where you have many irish bars.
Weather was like 25 each day, however some days were a bit windy.
If you was staying HB at the hotel, you could upgrade to AI at check in.
Pool was massive, with a view jacuzzi pools.
Hotel idea if your a fitness freak as you have an indoor gym, can rent bikes to be delivered to the hotel, and the area suttounding the hotel is quite flat, so alot of people were jogging during the day.

I will deffinatly be recommending this hotel.
If you have any questions or would like any help, message me and i will try and be off assistance.

We stayed at this hotel this November for 7 nights. It is our 3rd year to the hotel and as usual had a fantastic stay. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The food was very good and I was pleased to see the vegetarian section which is a new addition. The only down side was our requested sea view room we asked for did face the sea but we had to look over a hedge to see it.We are looking to book again on October 2014.

We have just spent two very happy, restful and sunny weeks here. My husband had emailed the hotel to request a room on the top floor near a lift to accommodate his medical needs. We were given exactly that with a pool view and tiny sea view, with morning sun. The room was clean with daily fresh towels and clean bed linen every other day. The bed was a very comfortable divan ensuring a good night's sleep.
The staff were fantastic and definitely the secret weapon of this hotel. The training of the staff was obviously something that Iberostar Hotels take very seriously.
The Animacion Team were a group of hardworking and dedicated young people who made us all very welcome and organised everything from Archery and boules during the day to Grease and Mama Mia in the evenings.
The food was excellent with a wide variety for all. If you couldn't find something you liked then you hadn't looked! We had lobster, roast duck etc for main courses - not bad for all inclusive !! Wines, beer and soft drinks available at lunch and dinner too.
We booked with Saga who have only recently started using this hotel and I'm sure that this was a very wise decision as it was quiet and yet the fun was available if you wanted it.
All in all a lovely way to spend my birthday which was celebrated with a gift from my Saga rep Sylvia and Cava from the hotel. Thank you to you all.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the iberostar papagayo in november and had the best time! its one of the best hotels iv ever been too. we had a family suite which was massive and overlooked a beautiful quiter pool, the location is a walk from the town but was right on the front,and was a nice walk, not far from marina rubicon. the staff were nice and had sweets in reception a nice touch, the rooms were large and clean and everything was maintained well. The pool that is black was amazing i thought, really different and was true to the volcanic landscape of the island. there is a supermarket just over the road as well, when we arrived we were early but they offered us a free drink which was nice, i will defently return and would reccomend it to anyone.
