Stayed at No. 42 July 2014. The apartment itself is exactly what it says on the website. Suppose the downside of the apartment, is the size of bedroom 2. Very small with 2 single beds almost filling the room. No real complaints about the apartment. The complex it is located on, is really poor, though. There is no reception, no pool bar / snacks, no shop, nothing. The pool toilets were locked for the 2 weeks we were there. The pool area has 12 parasols, and approx 30 sunbeds. There are 46 apartments, so I will let you do the maths on that one. A lot of the apartments appear to be owner occupied, and in my opinion, they do not want holidaymakers there. Rude, ignorant, turn the other way when we tried to say hello / good morning etc. Back to the pool, I am quite a frequent swimmer, and can seriously never remember being in water so cold. It does advertise solar heated pool, obviously not the case. Then there is the barbeque. WOW, it was so filthy that I would not even cook meat for a dog on it. Absolutely disgusting. Would I go back, Thanks, but No Thanks

Thanks for your review. However I am surprised by your comments abour the complex. You visited my website www.systemg.be/app42/en before booking and the site never pretended to offer a reception, bar nor restaurant... They are two pictures of each bedroom on the site which give you a good idea of the respective sizes.
During July, the management has been obliged to regularly refresh the pool temperature in order to prevent the water to exceed confort and good sanitaryconditions, therefore I can not understand your complaint.
I agrre with you on the number and condition of the sunbeds : 35 new ones were on order and will be installed by the end of this week.
Hope this will mitigate your bad opinion.

My partner and I visited Lanzarote in Feb-Mar 2014. We booked the bungalow due to the description and location in Puerto del Carmen. My comments are largely positive. The location is just a few minutes walk from the main road-Avenida las Playas and about 5 minutes walk to the bus stop at San Antonio hotel. Buses to the resorts on Lanzarote either stop here ( going north- Playa Honda, Costa Teguise or Arrecife ) or across the street to the rest of Puerto del Carmen, Puerto Colero and Playa Blanca.

There are about 4 shops: 2 Spar/Euro Spar an Hiperdino and an independent supermarket within a short walking distance with the closest within 5 minutes. The choice is not great but you can get most basic things though the price is sometimes a little high.

We took the bus to Playa Honda- Deiland shopping centre which is about 10 or so minutes and bought most meat and vegetables in the Hiperdino hypermarket there. Not only are they a lot cheaper but there was a wider choice.

Getting back to the bungalow... the one we stayed in had everything. Full kitchen with every conceivable kitchen gadget, lovely lounge, good size bedroom and a shower area in the bathroom that was larger than normal, even a washer in the bathroom.

We did not use the pool but it was located in the middle of the complex though not heated. There is a bit of noise from traffic but got use to that after the first day.

The people staying in the other bungalows were very friendly and most were staying there for a month or two.

The couple managing the complex were very friendly and approachable.

I would highly recommend Playa Park and would be ideal for a long holiday, especially if you like peace, quietness and space.

Despite the other negative comments posted, it's worth reminding oneself that the apartments are individually owned and the quality of the interior accommodation will vary.
Overall, this is a good complex - it's small, well-kept and quiet. The pool is quite large although quite cold.
The wifi is poor - I kept loosing signal and, despite a walk around, the signal stayed low.
The location (for me) was good. It's a little far out but I like that.
The quality of the furnishings in Number 42 is very high.
Irish and English TV IS available - it's on the analogue stations.

Room Tip: Just choose number 42 !

We spent two weeks in late June/early August and loved this apartment and complex. Clean, safe, secure and across the road from the beach. Excellent pool, plenty Irish and British TV channels in our apartment. We have made a longer reservation for later in the year. Lots of good restaurants. One especially at the entrance to the complex via the road facing the beach.

We have just returned from a week in Lanzarote staying in apartment 14 in the Playa Park complex in Los Pocillos. It's such a shame that the lady below didnt have an enjoyable time here, but please don't let that put you off...apartment 14 is fantastic and we couldn't have asked for more!

The apartment is a one-bedroom top floor apartment, overlooking the complex pool. The apartment is very well furnished, very clean, with comfortable beds and provides everything you need for your stay (safe, hairdryer, iron etc). The owners are brilliant and really welcome you to the area. We paid 30 euros for them to pick us up and drop us off at the airport which was great as we got a little personal tour of the area and tips on where to eat / visit etc. The owners live on the island so are available should you have any problems (we didn't have any during our stay!)

The complex is lovely, everyone is very welcoming and friendly (as many privately own their apartments and holiday there every year). The pool is very clean and a good size, with a little pool for smaller children. I was very impressed to see the complex cleaned (including pool) every other day. The complex also has wi-fi which is handy if you want to stay connected with the internet and social media! The complex is situated in a great location, across the road from the beach and 5-10min walk from shops / bars / restaurants. (I would recommend the Antica Trattoria for anoyone that likes Italian food - amazing food here!!) You can take a cab for 5 euros to the old town of Puerto del Carmen if you fancy more nightlife etc.

Overall, I would recommend this complex and apartment 14 for both couples and families wanting a relaxing, sunny holiday in a pretty resort. Thank you Susan & Paul for a lovely stay and we hope to return in the future!

Room Tip: Apartment 14 is an excellent top floor apartment.
