“friendly & clean”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

the cinco is friendly and clean it's in a good position staff and reps really pleasant spent a week there from 23rd may 2013 rooms spotless and plenty of room in them unlike a lot of places we have stayed at. A couples mins walk down the hill to all the bars and restaurants we went to about six different ones all good, can't complain about any of the meals we had staff all happy to serve and the atmosphere inviting. The excursions were excellent and the guides on them all knew what they were talking about. Puerte del Carmen is a really good resort it's got everything the only thing we didn't get was the sun it's a very windy island can be cold at times. We got the ferry to fuerteventura which was even more windy. The only bad point about cinco plazas the pools were freezing.

We stayed for 2 weeks last August & loved it. The cleaners especially were lovely & made us feel very welcome. My little girl called one of them abuela(nanny). All staff were lovely. The location was great. Will definitely go back.

Had 11 nights in the Cinzo Plaza apartments at the end of May and loved it. There are 3 seperate areas of the complex, each with its own pool, we asked for a 'quiet room' and were accomodated in the Yellow (Amarillo) part of the complex and the room was lovely and quiet. The rooms were quite large, we had a 1 bed with our 11 and 8 year olds sleeping on the sofa beds in the lounge. Apartment was clean and well maintained. We didn't eat at the complex so can't comment on what the food was like and hotel evening entertainment isn't our thing so can't comment on that either. The price of renting the safe and booking late check out were the only minor downside in our opinion.
The complex is well located just a short walk downhill to the main 'strip' which has plenty of bars and places to eat. If you prefer more Spanish style food we'd highly recommend eating at the 'El Bodegon de Luan' which was very good indeed. A trip to the harbour is well worth it for a 3 Euro taxi ride, and Puerto Cajero which costs a couple of Euro's more is a lovely harbour/marina to go for a meal. We enjoyed the volcano trip and also Rancho Texas, which we did during the day as its a lovely little zoo with swimming pools and sun beds included. We've been to Gran Canaria and Tennerife several times before but we were really taken with Lanzarote and Puerto Del Carmen in particular. The Cinzo Plaza apartments were an ideal location and we'd have no qualms about going back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room away from the main pool

Good apartments and clean but the pools were all freezing and we went in May. So cold the children could only swim for very short periods without their teeth chattering! Loud at night in certain apartments. My daughter could not sleep in the lounge on bed as so loud and could not change rooms. Kid's club was well run and organised.

Positives - puerto del carmen has fantastic tapas restaurants with very authentic food. Clean and well equipped rooms.

Negatives - pool was freezing and far too cold for the kids to go in. They can heat but stop in april!?! Evening entertainment and noise went to 1-2am each night making sleep impossible which is not ideal for a family resort. Do not pay for the wifi as it dropped out every 5 minutes which was very frustrating.

Overall it's not accommodation we would expect from a Thomson resort and we would never return.

just arrived back from a brilliant 11 night stay, while the weather wasn't great, everything else was. Appartment and pool very clean and tidy, hotel staff excellent. Evening entertainer and club superb, offering up to 3 evening clubs to look after the children. Evening entertainment great including mini disco, 2 magic shows, birds of prey and reptile show as well as a very funny tranny show - well done Cinco, we will be back next year

To cut things short I shall use bullet points:

. Family Friendly
. Freezing cold pools
. Average food
. Service was average also
and finally the area is on a steep hill ( would not recommend for elderly) but very near the beach!

Room Tip: Dont go for the Montana apts!
