Hi. Just bacK from lanzorote and stayed in the cinco plaza apts in p.d.carmen.we arrived there sun 9th of oct 2011 and were very happy with the rooms..have been to lanzorote before approx 6 times but this was our first in the cinco plaza.3 fine big pools and a kiddies pool with a shade over it. plenty of sun beds although you would get the bed grabbers in the mornings who would put out thier towels the minute the beds were unlocked at 9am by the gorgeous lifeguard. these bed grabbers would leave their towels there most of the day and sometimes only used the beds for an hour when they felt like a bit of sun. shame on ye bed grabbers, ye know who ye are!!!!!!!!!.
anyway our apt was a one bed and was quite spacious and very clean. beds change twice during our weeks stay and 3 sets of fresh towels. fresh water in the fridge on arrival kettle toaster and coffee maker but beware ladies no hairdryers. the restaurant was great, great food and quite cheap. did not like the breakfast though. but that was just me as i saw lots of people eat the breakfast there and they seem to enjoy it. €7.50 eat what you like. the day menus and evening menus were very good and quite tasty. again very cheap to eat there in the hotel restaraunt. so all in all a fab holiday in these apts and yes i would go back there again. read some reviews before i went and they were not great but i can say i really liked them. i would even say they were the best apts i have stayed in in lanzorote. so dont hesitate if you are booking these. you do have a steep hill down to the town but they are worth it and the walk may help shift some of the weight gain from the food and drink.enjoy.

Room Tip: if you want to be near the kiddies pool ask for any room from 3201 to 3246 and if you want to be awa...

After reading many mixed reviews my husband & I went with a very open mind as to what we were to expect, we were very pleasently surprised!!
Friendly Reception, Spacious Appt, Extremely Clean, Helpfull Staff, Holiday Reps Always to hand, what more could we have asked for in return for a quick cheap and cheerful last minute holiday.
The hotel prides itself on a 0 tollerence attitude, hence a great place to relax and enjoy without the worry of what will tomorrow bring!!
Many families were joining in the pool games yet it still wasn't extra noisy or unenjoyable.

There are 3 pools to choose from if you want a little chill out time at one or join the games in another, I would say there is a little of everything to suit everyone.

Would we return? Yes we would and we like our comfort 5* hotels, so that says it all.

Room Tip: Ground floor overlooking pool is a little sun trap.

This was our first time in cinco plaza ,but many times in lanzarote ,,, and my family and i loved it
There are good and bad in both english and irish ,do not tar with the same brush
That said the appt were spacious and clean ,if people want to leave crumbs all over there floor for a week when there were brooms and mops in the bathroom then that probably says more about them than the appts ,of course you will get cockroaches then !!! ,on the subject of cockroaches we only saw one and that was in the airport going home .Cockroaches are native to warmer climates as bees wasps and flys are to uk and ireland but no one says anything if they have a load of bees on their flowers in there back garden ..
pool area was clean despite and i have to say a english gang leaving bottles crisp packets soiled nappies etc etc ,,
Its the first place where i have known a lifeguard to be in attendance ,pool was clean and warm
entertainment for the kids was great with allsort of things to do for them
As allready been said shops and bars were all close by and even if you were in the harbour area a taxi would only cost you around €4-5 ,,just be aware that if you have walking difficulty there is a hill to get to the appt from the sea front
overall the cinco plaza is really nice place it was our first time there but definitely not our last
staff were friendly,,would definitely recommend
IF YOU WANT FIVE STAR SERVICE ON YOUR HOLIDAY THEN YOU SHOULD PAY FOR FIVE STAR SERVICE !! but dont moan about it when you have only paid for two or three
Just to be equal and fair their was a gang of irish there when we were there and they were letting their kids run riot as they did themselves some people shouldnt be allowed passports ,but what can you do ??

we have just returned from a 2 week stay here and really had a lovely time, transfer and check in was smooth, apartment was clean and spacious, we did have a blocked shower drain which flooded every time we took a shower but reported on our way out for tea thinking they would send someone the next day to look at it, but when we returned it had all been done and had no further issues. we had a 2 year old and felt very safe around the pools as the lifeguards were very efficient and alert. the food was nice in the restaurant and the takeaways from there were too, the bar was a bit dear but i suppose they have to make their money from somewhere with the entertainment they put on, which was good, everynight started off with a kids disco then they had someone in like african acrobats, bird and reptile shows, singers, drag artists etc then they would play cash bingo and a quiz, which is actually enjoyable when you've had a few lol! the staff were friendly and at the main pool they had activities every now and again like diving experiences, inflatable balls which was funny to watch people in, but they dont take over which we was worried about but it was fine. we did find that you had to be up every morning to try and get a umbrella to put your sunbeds under, which we needed to do as we had an infant, but theirs plenty or beds and space just not enough umbrellas, and we found that the lifeguards no longer remove towels which was annoying as one particular family would save them from 9am and maybe not use them till 230pm and then leave at 430pm which we found very rude especially as they had 2 umbrellas and 8 sunbeds! so the hotel do need to sort this out. the hill is a bit steep but we found plenty of people tackled it with disabilties, and the shop in the complex is not always as dear as people say we found a lot of things in the hiperdino were more expensive so shop about. if we were to come back to lanzarote we would definatly return to the cinco plazas, we had a first floor room in the main complex and once your doors and windows are shut you cant hear the noise from the entertainment on a night if you decide to stay in, everyone was very helpful and we had a lovely time

Room Tip: we would recommend a first floor room as they have the sun and with small children they cant run off...
