Just our opinion but after having stayed in numerous 4star rated hotels this one just about makes the grade but is still a very pleasent place to stay in a good location if you are fit and active and enjoy a walk or are prepared to pay for taxis.
Reception very welcoming and greeted by name and room ready which is always a bonus. The room was not bad at all big enough for the three of us without us tripping over each other. We seemed to have aquired a larger room which had a rounded end and a larger balcony than most as it was a semi circle in shape, still only grumble here that there was only two chairs!!! Bathroom clean although no bidet which was a surprise for a four star, still towels were changed without us having to throw them in the bath.
We had arrived New Years Eve for the gala evening but i will not say too much about that just to say that it was a little more than disappointing
Breakfast the next morning was back to the normal buffet spread which after having read some reviews on here we had expected to find a glorious and different selection than we did, although there was more than adequate for anyone to choose from it lacked a little quality than we have had from other hotels in lanzarote. Although the hotel was resonably quiet in the period we stayed there still was queues for the cooked to order omelettes that where only able to be done two at a time not sure how much this would annoy the most patient of people when the hotel would be full!.
Evening meal was much the same with a choice of cooked meat and fish along with the usual accompaniments and salad sometimes not an easy choice for a fussy 13 year old it would have to be said that the hotel certainly catered more for the German and Spanish food tastes.
Entertainment in the evening is laid on by the hotel but some nights would only last for 30 mins. We never participated in the day time activities so can not comment .
A few wee niggles some areas of the hotel and grounds had tape across them for the duration of our stay making it look like a crime scene out of some CSI program, toilets in the bar area were closed for the week meaning only one toilet in reception available which on occasions became blocked not very pleasent meaning a somewhat long walk to the room for such facilities! There seemed also to be a real lack of hot water after 6pm not great after a long day walking and in need of a soak.
Its a nice place to stay if you want a quiet area not too much happening at night and average food
Beware though we had a taxi from the airport to the hotel which was 5 Euros but the taxi which reception booked for us to the airport cost a whooping 11 Euros
