“Perfect for some winter sun!”
Reviewed February 1, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My partner and I stayed at the Ocean Lanzamar apartment during January, it is a large and well appointed apartment with a lovely, sunny balcony over looking the pool. The complex is very secure and has a large, well maintained pool, which was empty for most of our stay. The sunbeds and parasols around the pool are free for guests, but do get 'reserved' by people leaving their towels on them early in the morning, so if you want one in the sun you need to get up early.The apartment supplies beach towels, which was a great idea, and the washing machine was very handy for washing swimming costumes after being in the pool. The complex is in an excellent location, just 5 minutes walk from the beach and the Spar supermarket, and 10 minutes from the port and a well stocked Lidl. There are strict rules about noise in the evening, which makes the complex very quiet at night, so when combined with comfortable beds and black out blinds made for a very sound night's sleep. We found the best food near the port, where there are several excellent Spanish restaurants, and on a visit El Golfo which has amazing seafood. The weekly market at the port on a Friday is well worth a visit and a drive around the Island is highly recommended. The apartment has a kitchen, so we cooked on a couple of evenings, but the local restaurants aren't too expensive. Our only small problem was that the apartment wasn't very clean when we arrived, especially the bathroom and kitchen, and we noticed that some of the bedding was stained which was a little disappointing. Despite this, we would return, perfect for some winter sunshine.

“Really nice apartment”
Reviewed October 26, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely apartment, quite spacious and spotlessly clean, nice comfortable furniture and the kitchen had plenty of crockery and utensils etc, although every restaurant we went in was very good so no need to cook main meals, we just had snacks, hot drinks etc.

A clean, quiet and well kept complex, with a nice swimming pool, very sercure with card entry to the entrance, no bar or restaurant and very quiet in the evenings but this suited us as it is well placed with plenty of bars and restaurants with in a 5 min walk to the harbour/old town and a few minuites more in the opposite direction to the new town/the strip, a bit hilly coming home but taxis are plentyful and for a few euros will bring you home if you dont fancy the walk.

The wifi was a bit hit and miss, but most bars and restaurants had free wifi so not a major problem.

Well stocked Spar opposite with a bakery, deli and butchers onsite.

Excellant contact from Frances, with easy to follow instructions.

This was our first visit to Lanzarote and we were impressed with the quality of all the restaurants.

We got the bus to Playa Blanca one day for a few Euros and it took about 25min but a very interesting journey going past all the volcanos and villages, and had paella on the very nice harbour also caught the SeaTaxis to Puerto Calero which is a few miles from Puerto del Carmen (walkable) it cost about 10 euros each return and again had lunch on the harbour and a look around the designer shops, before we sailed back.

Would love to go back to lanzarote and would love to stay in Frances apartment if available.

“Lovely apartment in quiet complex”
Reviewed October 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lovely apartment just as advertised, everything you would need is there and the apartment is in a great location with supermarket over the road and Biosphere just down the road. Frances made booking the apartment very easy indeed she also allowed me to carry forward my deposit from 2014 to 2015 when I had to cancel because of an illness - she didn't have to do that so that was very much appreciated. Pachi picked us up and dropped us back at airport and was very nice. Thanks again Frances. With best wishes Elaine and Jim.

I stayed in this apartment for one week at the end of March 2015 with my husband and our son. The apartment was outstanding. Clean, bright, lovely furnished, amazing balcony with sun all day long.
Met Frances during our stay - lovely person who gave us great recommendations for restaurants, tours etc.
Airport pickup/drop off by Pachi was great - he is a lovely friendly person.
The entire complex is well maintained - quiet and safe.
Its location to everything in the area is excellent - very central. Great supermarket across the road, bus stop nearby, shopping centre ,beach, restaurants. Couldn't get a better location in Puerto Del Carmen.
I would highly recommend this apartment.

Stayed for 5 weeks again for the second time. Spotlessly clean on arrival and everything you need for self catering.
Frances was on hand for any problems and paid us a visit during our stay to make sure everything was ok.
UK and Irish TV channels on 32" screen as well as local stations.
Nice comfortable single beds.
Lovely clean complex and very secure. Very quiet at night
Would recommend rental of this apartment.
Thanks again Frances

“Excellent apartment in a quiet, secure complex.”
Reviewed November 12, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Now that we are back home we just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your apartment. We enjoyed all aspects of it - the quality of the cutlery and crockery was much appreciated as we have stayed in apartments before where the cutlery and crockery were made up from non-matching oddments! The beakers were nice to drink from, as were the glasses. Bedlinen also was good quality and we appreciated the swimming towels. Lanzamar was so quiet and peaceful especially during the evening and night and we felt safe and secure.

Pachi was great and very helpful, turned up spot on time and was a very pleasant guy. Please pass on our thanks to him also.

We realised on the way home that we did not write in the visitors' book, but will certainly remember to do so next time.

We want to congratulate you on the quality of the apartment and the service you have provided and we look forward to another stay next year.
