“Basic, Clean, Large Rooms - Good Location”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Oceana Apartments are located in a fairly central part of Costa Teguise. Access to the fairly small Reception is between shops in a fairly busy area, and the desk is not 24 hour. However check in was quick and the staff friendly here.

Our room was standard 3-person with 2 single beds pushed together and a sofa-bed. Good size with kitchenette and bathroom. As we were ground floor our “balcony area” was huge with 2 comfortable sun loungers, a table and 3 chairs. We sunbathed there when we got back from beach/pool! Kitchenette had everything you need including oven,pots pans toaster kettle cups dishes etc. Bathroom was fine with Wc Bidet and shower over bath. The shower looks really dated but worked really well! Towels and clean every other day, but towels very worn and frayed. No bugs worth noting.

However I must point out that these rooms are big with a tiled floor, and any noise seems to echo badly especially at night with the door closed and curtains drawn. The beds are also basic spring base with mattress and squeak. I only mention this because the first 3 days for us were fine, but the last part of the week we got hardly any sleep due to a very loud couple next door. As most of the residents appeared 50+ I would imagine we were unlucky.

The pool area looks pretty good, but the water is freezing, and the sunbeds were clearly not designed for lying on for any length of time. Lilo or 3 towels and pillow from room required!! The poolside bar is run by Mo, who is a decent guy and serves snacks and drinks most of the time. However he was closed sometimes for no apparent reason. There is no entertainment here.

Beach is 5mins away choice of places all 10 euros for 2 beds and brolly.

Doesn’t sound too good so far eh! Well surprise surprise we really enjoyed our stay here, loads of good places to eat, drink and be merry. It cost us £600 odd for both of us for a week with extra legroom on the plane. Places to go… well we enjoyed the “5 euro” Chinese eat all u wants, for Curry go to Fazz`s (does an early bird for 8.99 (5 small courses) before 7.30pm and for big breakfasts try the British Café on the way into the square. All the bars are fairly reasonably priced, but for British sport try the Bull just round the corner, very short wobble home!

If you are a jogger/walker the coastal paths are great here and you can go for miles in both directions.

Overall nice accommodation, basic facilities, bit rough round the edges, in a really good central location.

we have just come back from 2 weeks at the oceano this was the second time we have stayed at this complex it didn't disappoint not 5 star but as they say you only get what you pay for but it was value for money very central to bars, shops, restaurants, the beach and transport the room was very clean but the sheets could have been changed more often we had a problem with our door card went to reception she assured us the man would be in 5 minutes to fix it and surprise surprise 5 minutes later he arrived, thanks to Mo in the pool bar for refreshments during the day. The oceano apartments are right on the road but once you go through the doors at reception it is very quite look forward to our next trip we will be back.my one BIG moan and it s with all holiday's abroad 5 coat hangers for 2 for 2 weeks is not enough

Room Tip: rooms 001 to 006 are on the ground floor and have their own private courtyard

We recently stayed at the Oceano apartments, 19/10 to the 27/10/13. From the time of checking to checking out we couldnt fault it. The stafff were all very helpful, pleasant and polite. The pool area was just right, no problems getting a sun bed. The only complaint we have was that the sundbeds were very hard. The apartment we were allocated, room 212, was perfectly suited to us. Being a corner apartment it was quite large. We overlooked the pool and had th esun on the balcony for most of the day. The corridor leading to the apartment overlooked the road leading down to the beach. We will deinately stay here again and would certainly reccomend it to others

Room Tip: top floor overlooking pool

Stayed at the Oceano Apartments for a week 11 October-18 October 2013, flight and transfer was good. When we arrived at the apartments we were dropped off on the opposite side of the road, and as we had not been to Lanzarote before we were a bit confused where the Apartments where but the bus driver pointed to a gap in a row of shops. From the outside we thought we had made a big mistake! well we where very surprised upon entering the small reception area, we were met by a very nice French man who was waiting for us. We checked in and were allocated room 121 and were given instructions how to find our room. They use card keys which also turns on the electric, and the slot for this is situated behind the door. Upon arrival at our room we open the door to find a very clean well appointed room, everything you wanted, kettle, toaster, cooker, oven, hair dryer. The bathroom was ok bath, wall shower within the bath with a shower curtain, basin and bidet with ok towels. There were two beds pushed together with very clean linen and a large leather sofa. Although our room was above the bar there was never a time where we were bothered by any noise as it seemed to go very quite around 12. We did hire the TV for 19 euros for the week and a fan for 16 euros, as there is no air-con, but we got 10 euros back when we left. The apartments are well situated with plenty of bars, restaurants and spar supermarkets round it.
The maids came every other day when they would change the towels and bed linen and sweep. The weather was great not too hot with a lovely breeze. We never went to the beach as the pool was quite and very clean, but you needed to be about early to place your towel on a sun bed as there is not enough to cater for every one. There are different beaches to try but there is charge of 10 euros for two beds and one parasol which we felt was a bit expensive. We had a very enjoyable week and will be going back again next October

Stayed 11 - 18 Oct 2013. Value for money! Spacious, clean & excellent location! Staff most helpful. Don't do a package holiday, go on a budget airline & taxi from airport to the appts is €20 or catch the bus €5. We've stayed in Teguise 4 times always All inclusive before this trip No more! Bars , restaurants & "Euro spar" convenience stores cheap enough!

Room Tip: Room 203. - Quiet

We have just come back from 2week stay in the oceano apartments. They are spacious and clean. Also basic but everywhere else is the same we have tried lots and these are as good as any. We had room 201 which is right above the bulldog bar (British karaoke bar) which stays open until 2am. We only heard it 2 nights when they had a guest singer. The apartments are central to everything bars, restaurants, bus stops anything you need. Reception staff friendly. We will be going back and use these again.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are quieter
