the lomo blanco apartments were situated close to the old town which was great for us as we went to the same restaurant La Ancler 11 times near the harbour the food and service was excellent, the apartments were not bad very clean however we had trouble on may hot days trying to find a sunbed let alone a sunbed with a parasole there was only 11 umbrellas available. also even though it states no bed reserving or glasses by pool this was ignored constantly and the bar didnt have any alternatives so glasses did get kicked over round the pool. our room being a seaview was right next to the road whereby taxis roared up every few minutes dropping people off at night there was also 2 dustcarts every night between 4 and 5 in the morning which were very noisy, so not very relaxing apart from the restaurant and the lovely kittens that we made friends with, would go back to puerto del carmen but prob not lomo blanco.

We have just recently returned from our holiday in lanzarote staying in the Lomo Blamco Apartments. before we left we read some of the reviews that other holiday makers had left. we read allsorts of reviews that the apartments wernt up to standards, that there wasnt much to do and just that the holiday wasnt overall a good package.

On the first night arriving at the resort we were a little dissapointed with a few faults which the apartment had, the terrace light didnt work and also the handle fell off the door-we reported this to reception and with leaving the apartment for just a small amount of time both of the faults had been fixed-the hotel showed complete customer dedication. The room does come with a safety deposit box which costs 14euros for the week and then a 6 euro deposit-the boxes were very safe with only the holiday maker holding a key. The room was basic but had everything that we needed including a toaster,kettle oven, fridge freezer and many more essentials.The room does come with a small portable tv which has 9 english channels which there is a snall fee to pay which i think was only 3 euros for the day. The apartment was very clean and spacious-with the maids bringing fresh towels and bed linen 5 times a week. the resort as a hole was very clean and tidy-in the whole week of our stay i didnt once see any litter or rubbish lyingaround. the resort was very busy but quiet and the pool was nice and relaxing with planty of sun loungers for all of the holiday makers. The pool is a good size and seperate form he childrens pool-but i will say jump straight in dont dangle your legs over the side becuase the water is so cold you wont end up getting in. Although once in the pool the water warms up nicely. We only stayed as self catering so i carnt really tell you much about the food-we did eat a few times from the snack bar at the pool edge and the food was very nice and also we very good value for money.Staff at the resort were all really lovely-they were very helpful and friendly and they couldnt do enough for you. the maids were brilliant always cleaning the apartment

When we were reading the reviews previous holiday makers kept calling one specific road CARDIAC HILL !!! saying that it was very steep to climbup and down and its the fastest way to and from the resort. When we first went up and down the hill it didnt seem to bad but towards the end of the week it seemed to get harder to climb. Although it is steep it isnt as bad as people make out. and if you dont want to takle the hill there are some steps next to linikers bar which avoid the hill.

The resort is only a 5 minute walk to the beach and the local bars and restraunts. We found some really amazing places to eat inc: The chinese dragon all you can eat buffet for just 7euro each and sports bar where you can snack on all your fave english foods. The best vars to go in is definatly sports bar and Bellmens which is where you get the best and cheapest cocktails.

The only excursion we went on was the Volcano Express- which we would absolutly recommend to everyone. its a breathtaking ride up into and around the lunar route. Its unbelieveable to be so close to something that once caused so much destruction which now has been made a national park to Lanzarote with the name Timanfaya.

Just to sum the holiday up we would give it and 11 out of 10. we never struggled with keeping ourselves occupied- we had plently to do and see and when we wernt out and about we were relaxing in the apartment and around the resort. We would definatly go back to the Lomo Blanco Apartmemts as we had such a fantastic time. So toeveryone about to be arriving at the resort have a fab time and ignore the rubbish reviews because the resort really is out of the world.

Lomo Blanco is centrally located and is only a few minutes walk from the old & new town which was very handy. The complex and apartments were clean and looked after and had a relaxed atmosphere, staff were friendly & helpful. The local spar is only a few minutes away and had everything you need although it is much easier to just head out for food & there is no end of places to go and are reasonably priced. I would recommend staying here

We have only recently returned from Lanzarote having stayed at the above apartments. I was concerned about going when I read a few reviews about some apartments being burgled and as luck would have it we were given a ground floor apartment! But in all honesty, perhaps just luck, we never had any problems like that whatsoever.
The apartments themselves were basic, but it had a kettle and toaster and tv etc. The rooms were cleaned every other day so I was most happy with that.
The only thing I thought was a downside was the TV, we stayed in one of the nights there and arranged for the TV to be connected (you have to do this via reception) and the only channel which was english speaking was Sky Family or the news channels which I found most disappointing.
Towards the end of our trip, my fiancee took ill and we had to go to the hospital, the staff at the hotel could not have been any more nicer or accommodating for us as we thought we would have to extend our stay....They were so helpful.
One thing I will say, the hospitals over there are dreadful! I found the staff at the hospital so unaccommodating in trying to get around the language barrier, it was just a complete nightmare. So be sure that you arrange, if needs be all necessary insurances before going away and ensure you demand an interperater when you get to the hospital as they wont provide one unless you ask.
I would most certainly stay at the Lomo Blanco again without a doubt.

We stayed for a week in these apartments and I would definately go back.

The rooms had all the basic requirements and were cleaned on a regular basis. I had read in previous reviews that some parties had been broken into, however thankfully we did not experience this and I felt that the rooms were very secure.

The apartments are in a fantastic location, with both the new and old towns being only a short distance away. The hill down to the new town is quite steep but manageable although I wouldn't recommend that you attempt it wearing heels.

The staff in Lomo Blanco couldn't have been more accomodating and the atmosphere around the pool is relaxed and family orientated. It really is an enjoyable place to stay.
