this hotel was not very big over rall the staff were very helpfull the only problem was they were shutting the hotel due to a refurb the day we left so the place was like a ghost town but the hotel did still accomidate our needs . i think the hotel is very clean apart from the obvious paint peeling etc the rooms are very large and are a good standard what you would expect from a three star hotel if you are travelling in a big group you can have adjoining apartments . the pool was very clean apart from a few tiles missing from pool they have three water slides but be careful as the pool is very shallow as you come of the slides . the food was not that great but was a meat station where you could usually find something to eat : breakfast was eggs , omelete, bacon toast pastries,pancakes they are there at breakfast lunch and dinner but if you miss breakfast or lunch there is not really any all inclusive food inbetween only crisps or staleleft overs from bar area , usally choclate doughnut fairy cake or crossants and usuall cheeses and meats yogurts . lunch : usally fishor meat chips pasta salads and a choice ofmeats in sauses some days there were burgers hot dogs
dinner : the same as lunch really there is no self service for cold drinks which i think is needed. the beach is a long walk away and its not really worth the walk to be honest . there is a few shops nearby and a supermarket about 10 minites walk the whole area is dead really quiet unless you are looking to get away from it all completly i would not reccomend this hotel or resort my kids were very bored it was the slides that kept them going night time entertainment was non exsistent to be honest bingo every night and about 10 minutes kids disco very very poor if you have children stay away from this hotel it needs a good bit of energy booted into the place but the staff were still polite and made you feel welcome so not really there fault the hotel is mainly filled with spanish and the entertainment was all in spanish too . make sure you take a tri[p to the volcanos and rent a bike up town they also have trampoline bungee jumping and free scuba diving in a local pool we also went to ranco texus worth a visit . overall was not worth the money we paid and was disappointed i would reccomend if you get it cheap and you are looking for a very quiet ( and i mean very quiet holiday )

The Hotel is above average... and for what we paid, how can anyone complain!!!! People on tripadviser moan about everything!! The pool is great!! although not very deep in places(ouch!!. lol) What made the holiday for us was The Fantastic Staff who couldn't do enough for us.. The Animation team were friendly once they realised someone was joining in... (spanish don't do mini disco!!!) but We partied well and entertained ourselves... Food was Fab.. because we didnt have to cook it!! Plenty of choice and freshly cooked before your eyes. Bar Staff incredible as virtually all drinks included!!! Crazy golf, Boules and other games pass the time away when not stuffing your face or sunbathing. We would recommend this Hotel to all as the Staff in all departments were Fantastic and made our Family Holiday a Pleasure... Thanks to Jose, David, Laura, Christian etc. Would definitely return!!! oh yeah , it is away from the beach but the reception will book a taxi for you and its only 3 euro so stop moaning!!!! Breezy Teguise!!!! Love The Surfing!!!

Room Tip: ask for adjoining rooms if 2 rooms.

This hotel looks very tired, could do with a make over. Fairly quite which I think was a good thing. No early morning cuppa here, you have to wait for breakfast. Food in restaurant very bland and basic, not a lot of variety. The ladies cleaning the room are also very frugal with the loo paper, I lost count of the times I had to ask for more. Reception staff very helpful. Could be a lot better with a bit of thought. Although quite location I enjoyed it, pool area is the best feature although I can't say it would be the same if busy.

We enjoyed our stay, but I am going to be a anal here, for the following reasons:
1. Yes, the hotel was under-occupied but this may be due to the crisis.
2. The location was not ideal, it being quiet to the point of desolation. On one side is the skeleton of an intended hotel gradually being filled with graffiti, on the other a deserted, unfinished housing estate; both are large and blot the landscape. However, the rooms all point inwards so one can close one's eyes when walking through the never-ending corridors. Many local businesses and cafés are closed, or not doing very well, possibly because Playa Verde holidays are all inclusive. A local café owner did mutter about this, but then look at the type of clients that these places try and attract, without wishing to sound snobbish. Cheap beer, karaoke and live shows are plentiful, in pockets of activity.
3. It was May, and the pool was unusable, but who would want to swim in it? There was a cold, prevailing wind blowing across the bleak, black landscape, which is filled with previous large rocks, presumably from previous eruptions. Some lost souls had mounded the smaller rocks in key areas, but they looked more like dog turds than attractions.
3. The food was plentiful, and if one self-service offering did not appeal then another was available. No need to moan there, even though the quality could be variable. Many people queued for food to be grilled by chefs, or crepes to be freshly made, including egg and bacon breakfasts, but we gave up on the meats after a while, because they invariably were overcooked and tough. The fish were better, although there must be a problem with the heat of the cooking surfaces.
4. Now to the key point: the noise generated by the over-enthusiastic waiters, when they stored dirty plates and cutlery was colossal, intrusive and unnecessary. When we transferred to a sister hotel for the 2nd week, in Tenerife, the problem was noticeably muted; this was simply because the waiters gave customers the time to clear their own plates onto the trolleys. It begs the question: who is given the greater priority: the customers or the waiters? I would encourage the staff to go as far as pointing out this facility to the customers, and refraining from diving in to clear used plates whenever people leave their tables, even mid-course. Sometimes, a stressed waiter (Male or female, in the Spanish sense of using this word), would send a wobbly pile of plates crashing across the floor.
5. A final comment on the guests: conspicuous consumption was the order of the day; each meal was eaten as if it were going to be the last supper, and the root cause of many of the guests with vast girths was self-evident. If Lanzarote were to lose contact with the outside world for any length of time, then I fear that these people would turn to cannibalism.

Room Tip: Stay away from the auditorium at the base of the garden.

To be honest as long as you aren't an anal person who is going to take photos of every little smudge you will have a lovely holiday here.

*Holiday: Onthebeach.com, 7 nights, Half Board, £380 per person incl flights
*Hotel: Nicely decorated, marble lobby and glass lifts. People have complained that the front fountains are rusty or not on but I really don't know how this would affect your holiday.
*Staff: Friendly (one maid helped us get a hornet out our room when my boyfriend was a wuss)
*Business: A bit quiet as it was not peak season

*Bar: 6/10 Served a selection of tasty cocktails and beer averagely priced. Down point is that it stopped serving at 11pm I think.
*Restaurant: 7/10 The room is divided as to whether you are Half board or AI. Food was nice but basic which suited us as I am a fussy eater. It repeated a couple of nights but there was always something good to eat. Breakfast included Rolls, cold meats, cheese, scrambled egg, bacon etc. Dinner varied from pork to fish to pasta to chips and sometimes they made pancakes which where great.
*Pool: 7/10 The main pool was nice and cool which was welcome in the heat. Only one of the jacuzzis was on which was fun but don't jump in the pool after, you will get a shock.
*Sunbeds: 5/10 We were lazy getting up but we could get beds next to the pool the majority of the time. The 2 days we couldn't we had to go under the palm tree section which was a bit hazardous as it was down tiled steps from the pool. Much caution was needed when descending so this would not be good for children.
*Entertainment: 5/10 Average entertainment for this type of hotel. There was something on most nights (low season) and we went to the reptile show which was great.

*Room: 7/10 Double room which consisted of 2 singles pushed together like most hotels. TBH this is nicer than a double bed as you have more space when it is hot. Everything was clean and nothing was broken. The Air Con was good and there was a big wardrobe with mirrored doors and two bedside tables. We didn't didn't really use the TV but it worked fine and there was the usual fridge, safe etc you would expect.
*View: Really nice view of pool and sea. Our balcony was a decent size and was nice and cool.
*Bathroom: Well decorated with everything you could want and there was a large shelf and mirror area which was great for applying makeup.

*Location: 8/10 A 5 minute walk from the bars and shops. 20 minute walk to the big strip. 40 minute walk to the Water Park (so fun!) or I think you could get a bus.
*Beach: 3/10 The nearest little beach is at the end of the road. Beds were available even late in the day and there were only a few people. HOWEVER, it is extremely windy in Lanzarote and we only lasted 30 mins as being blasted by sand was very painful. If you a person who prefers the beach to the pool Lanzarote is not for you.
*Weather: Mostly sunny with a few clouds at the beginning of the week. This was a good thing as the wind makes you forget how strong the sun is.

*Highlights: The Monkey Grill near the beach - a 50s style dinner with good music.
**La Vacca Loca** A tiny restaurant on the strip with a great atmosphere serving some of the best food I have ever tasted. AMAZING steak and tapas!!
Volcano excursion - make sure you go to the Orange colour tour place 5 minutes away from the hotel as this place did the best rates.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel with all the basics then this hotel is great. It had everything we could have needed and to be honest your holiday is what you make of it and this place has potential to give you a lovely one

I was a bit wary before going as some of the reviews here were not great but i have to say we had a lovely week here over Christmas. It was very quiet but we had been warned about this and to be honest suited us. We had 3 kids with us aged 6, 9 and 13. Most of the other residents were retired Spanish couples.

The all inclusive was excellent. Food was lovely, there is a buffet and a grill where fish and meat are cooked in front of you. I agree that it may have become a bit repetitive after the end of the week but there was no meal that we did not enjoy.

The staff and friendly and helpful. The accomodation is extremely clean and well cared for.

If you are looking for a quiet holiday this is the place to go but as it is in a very quiet area you have to travel to go anywhere. You really would need a car or be prepared to go out by taxi. The weather was a nice 22 degrees but it is a very windy area which cools things down a lot - you definately need a sweater at night time.

We enjoyed our holiday as we were looking for a quiet relaxing week and this is what we got. I would return to one of this chains hotels but not to this area.

Room Tip: We were in a room that was close to where they had the nightly entertainment which started at 10.30...
