“clean & tidy”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

just done a week at the bitacora(nov 27th) cant fault the place,rooms all you need,good layout,all rooms are around the pool,plenty of beds,food is good,staff do there jobs,price is right for what you get,you can pay twice as much at a lot of other complexes for the same type, silly if you just need a bit of clean & tidy.

Room Tip: head down cardiac hill and you,ll come across a little jem of a chinese called the golden chopsticks...

Great price - clean but not at all fancy. We had an apartment on the ground level, facing the pool. At first I was worried it would be loud - but the environment in this complex is quiet and laidback. Even during the event nights, when you close the doors, you hear nothing.

Kitchen has everything we needed...fridge, microwave, hot water cooker, toaster, plates, glasses, utensils

True, it is a 10 minute walk to sea - but it is a pretty steep descent and therefore a steep ascent when you return. And be careful - the doggie gifts laying on the sidewalks and roads are plentiful - but no fault of the hotel of course.

WIFI is available, but slow. There are two computers in the lobby and reasonably priced.

The restaurant is okay. Prices are good. The staff even delivers the food/drinks to your poolside table. Good service!

We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Lanzarote. It was a great value for the money.

Room Tip: Room at the far end of the pool...ground level was really nice.

Returned yesterday (24 Nov) after a weeks stay. Was more than happy with every aspect of the apartment including cleanliness, appliances and layout. Nearly all of the apartments face onto the pool area which was always tidy and never noisy. (although ours didn't it was still in a nice position) I thought that the complex looked a lot nicer than most of the other places that we dropped people off at on our journey from the airport and I will definitely stay here again the next time I go to Lanzarote. It was great value for money and exceeded my expectations.

Just back from a stay at bitacora club apartments. The price was cheap so didn't expect much. Was pleasantly surprised at this really nice apartment block. Had everything you need, clean and helpful staff.

Would recommend if looking for basic good value accommodation.

A friend and I spend a week here in early November and were pleasantly surprised with how much we liked the complex. We requested an apartment on the upper level with afternoon sun and were given 205, this was perfect as the sun was on our terrace before we crawled out of bed. In fact the heat on the terrace in the sun at midday was unbelievable considering the time of year. I did have a concern when I realised that the entrance to the complex after 11 was very close but with the double glazing we didn't hear a thing. The apartments are a good size and are well maintained and serviced with the cleaners coming in 3 times in 7 days, we also appreciated having a toaster and electric kettle as well as a microwave. The complete is not in the middle of everything but is not that far away with the beach and the port area both being about 10 minutes away. Some people have commented about the steep hill but there are other routes that have a more gentle gradient if you look on a map. I'm pleased to say that we would happily go back again and I'd like to take this chance to thank the staff again for the friendly and relaxed holiday.

Room Tip: Not much to contribute except that we found 205 to be fine

This place is 2 star, but good value. It's basic, but everything works & is in good condition! It's a bit of a walk (10 - 15 mins) to seafront, uphill on the way back! Staff are great & food on-site is cool. Very little on-site entertainment in November, due to lack of interest I think. Lots going on in the resort anyway! Lovely place to relax by the pool or on apartment patio!

Just back from Bitacora, stayed for 1 week and did not want to go home. Appartments basic, clean, new fridge, kettle, toaster, mirowave and TV with english channels at no extra cost. A lovely atmospher and very relaxing either sitting on your baloney or lying by the pool. The walk down the hill is fine and does help burn of those extra calories you put on over the week lol After a good night out on the strip at many of the nice good priced restaurants a taxi is only 3-4 euros home. Have stayed in Lanzarote 5 times over the last 3 years and can say that i will be returning to the Bitacora Club. Great value for money.
For a nice Chinese meal go to New World can't miss it, it is at the bottom of the hill - the best!!
Quintins & Blairs on back street to the old town really nice to!!!
