Club Pocillos
Reviewed May 14, 2012

This was the second time we stayed in Club Pocillos. We were very pleased, the apartment was spacious looking out onto the beach and sea. Everything was clean.. Some people might find it a disadvantage that there is cleaning and change of towels only twice but I do not mind that, I do not mind to keep things tidy and clean on the other day, although I can imagine that might be a problem for a family with kids ! Problems are dealt with very quickly so that was very satisfactory.
I would recommend these apartments especially to couples . We will certainly go back again but then for 2 weeks and possibly, for another 2 weeks later if our next stay is as pleasant.

Room Tip: Personally I would ask for a apartment on a higher floor with seaview, but for families with young c...

The apartments were spacious with a good size kitchen and living area. Two bedrooms with a lockable safe and burglar alarm, which we didn't use. There is air conditioning and heating but a charge of 20 euros per week is levied for the hire of the remote control. The apartment had a large balcony which overlooked the beach and sea across the road.
The main negatives were it was a 20 minute walk to the main centre and the lighting inside the apartment was very poor.

However it was clean and tidy and was a good price and very close to the beach and a supermarket and a few cafes were within a minutes walk.

Room Tip: Apartments at the front of the property are best for the views

we have just returned from our holiday in lanzarote. i really liked club pocillos when i first saw it. i thought the apartment was very clean and tidy. i was disappointed however as they did not leave out sheets for my daughters bed however the receptionist gave us sheets the following day before i had a chance to ask her and said sorry for not giving them. the location is ideal. close to the beach, pool, shops and resteraunts. i liked that we were away from the centre and the area was quiet. the tap broke in our bathroom and it was fixed within 20 minutes of telling the receptionist, however i felt that the reception was closed more times then it was open. i would reccommend club pocillos to other people and families. we will be returning in the future to stay at club pocillos.

As regular visitors to lanzarote we used to admire Club Pocillos when passing by and finally decided to holiday there in May. We booked a seaview apartment. Our apartment was on the firstfloor with a beautiful view of Playa Pocillos.First impressions, bedroom cramped, lounge- kitchen well equipped. Problem with front door lock-which was fixed.Electrical problem in bathroom-shorting all the time with loud bang and tripping- fixed after a few days after it blew lights with loud bang and flash.For first 3 nights we got no sleep. A RUGBY TEAM had booked most of complex. Each night they gathered in the 2 apartments directly below us at 6pm and started their drinking sessions and loud behaviour , throwing rugby balls up to higher apartments and generally messing about. They moved off at 8pm and returned again at 1am and Partied through the night until 7am. We complained after 3 nights and were told they were leaving. Things were quiet for a further 2 nights until a party of 2 couples in their 20ths arrived. One couple were beside us and other below us. Walls are paper thin- you can hear everything. On first night they arrived back late ,drunk and the fun started, shouting and screaming, foul language and violence - furniture been thrown around and bodies hopping off patio door- it was very frightning. One of the females was pregnant. The drinking continued next day and the violance and screaming started again that night.I went to reception next day and spoke with the owner, she was well aware of what was going on, but said what could she do, she could not throw them out.I sugested she report the matter to the Police, she replied that i should do so. I informed her it was her responsibility not mine. She offered to move us, I said we were not the problem.The couples were spoken to and moved but not before I was verbally abused and spat at.The Apartments have NO SECURITY AT NIGHT, anything goes it seams. Be prepared, you have been warned.The apartment itself was dirty on arrival, we had to buy cleaning material and give it a good cleaning ourselves.Sheets were only changed once in 2 weeks. No toilet paper unless you asked. Towels were changed ok. Fungus on bathmat had to steep it over night in bleach to clean- fungus also on shower screen-apartment cleaned once.We will never go back again- run on a shoestring budget, which is a pity.Lovely location- sad.

Room Tip: Dont go there

Just back from a very relaxing week in Lanzarote staying at Club Pocillos.From the moment we arrived our holiday was fab,Laurance, the complex manager who there to greet us when our coach pulled up was very friendly and helpful.Our checkin was fast and we were happy that our request for a seaview apartment was noted.The apartments are VERY clean ,with everything that you would require for a holiday.even a dishwasher which was a pleasent surprise!!!.....Aircon is available ,along with safe for a small fee and would be advised as it gets really warm at night..
Myself and hubby are already looking to book again for sept as we really couldnt fault this complex at all. *The only very small gripe people may have is that the pool is TINY,,however with your pass for the large hotel pool next door,this shouldnt be a problem,and we never had a problem getting loungers.*

We had a 2-bed apartment with direct access from pavement to a walled and gated patio and into the apartment, no steps so ideal for buggy and toddler. Reasonably clean and well equipped. Bizarrely, apartment had a dishwasher instead of the arguably much more useful clothes washing machine. Manager a lovely lady, very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately all apartments had at least one window facing onto an internal courtyard and any noise at night is magnified and reverberates around. We had some rude awakenings at 2am and 4am a couple of times. Apartment is directly across the road from the beach, with supermarket, car hire and a couple of restaurants in the immediate vicinity and many more within a 10-15 minute walk. It is very much an apartment block with no facilities onsite - there is a small splash pool (up lots of stairs) and residents have use of the pool in the neighbouring hotel, but that's all. I personally wouldn't stay there again, but wouldn't necessarily dissuade others from using it.

Needed a quite hassle free break away and club pocillos was just the right place no pool no bar just 24 rooms and a very efficient friendly reception true what previous poster have said about the staff there good,rooms are comfortable and well equipped for a two week stay,(my wife made a honest correction there on the fact no hair-dryer) its rated as 2 star accommodation but I have stayed in worse 4 star definitely under rated.Got to recommend a restaurant La Marisma to the left and just at the end of small strip past spar try the garlic prawns and if you ever had better please tell me where?
If you like a quite drink good and reasonable priced beer in slainte is worth a try behind spar shop.
Bad points with club pocillos are few :
no wifi
and the walls are paper thin a lot of road noise and we had a neighbours who got up early and sounded like they were having a game of squash in the room!
Having said that
We will stay here again
