We holidayed in Lanzarote in February of this year (2012) and stayed at Lanzarote Village's sister 3 star hotel The Floresta - on arrival we immediately set about researching for the best hotel in the los pocillos area with the intention of treating our sons their trendy beautiful partners and our grandsons to separate holidays in May and October of this year. After visiting many of the hotels in the los pocillos area we decided that the 4 star Lanzarote Village Hotel was our second choice to the Los Jameos Hotel - Due to finances we chose Lanzarote Village Hotel and without doubt it was the warm friendly staff that we met on our walk about, the pristine clean modern well planned environment and in particular the fenced off pool which made this choice easy - this child friendly Hotel offered a chillaxed atmosphere with a beautiful location - the hotel stands opposite a very wide beautiful beach and our rooms would have sea views. Having done our research we booked Lanzarote Village for 26th May for myself, my husband, our 35yr old twin son, his partner Angie and our grandson Joseph. We also booked Lanzarote Village Hotel for 28th October 2012 for our other twin son, his partner Gemma and Oscar our grandson. Those who have stayed at the 3 star Floresta Hotel will know that the accommodation is medi-ocre, however, in comparison the 4 star Lanzarote Village is definitely an upgrade we could not fault our rooms they were excellent and absolutely pristine clean, big thankyou to the cleaners.
This review is being written in the selfish hope that both the food and entertainment can be improved before our return in October. But before we set out the tweeks that Lanzarote Village Hotel need to make can we just give a big genuinely warm thankyou to all the hard working staff at Lanzarote Village Hotel - without doubt we cannot fault the friendly and accommodating attention every staff member showered upon us and on this basis alone we would recommend this hotel - however there is a down side - the food is very medi-ocre and by the end of the week we were disappointed with the same old boring banana or fruit flan that was put out every day. The fruit was never fresh, the apples were all bruised and the bananas were so ripe when peeled they were gooey and black fit for rotting. The picnic we ordered for our day out when opened consisted of a ham and cheese sandwich filling that was enclosed in a very dry white stale like bread. These sandwiches were accompanied by very bruised over-ripe fruit so we binned the lot and ate out at a Tapas. We truly expected more from a 4 star hotel. Lanzarote Village Hotel would greatly improve their picnic offer by providing a varied picnic menu for customers to choose from, that way holiday makers will not be disappointed when opening their picnic bag. The evening soup also was hit and miss somedays looking like thin dishwater and other days beautifully tasty thick and creamy.
Sadly in comparison we preferred the food at the 3 star Floresta which also had its faults but there was far more sea food dishes and a greater variety of deserts. What is going on? Los Jameos (also 4 star) serves up cordon bleu food - get the food right and Lanzarote Village Hotel will be on par! Lastly the entertainment is medi-ocre and definitely needs updating. In summary Lanzarote Village Hotel need to upgrade the food and the professional entertainers because everything else is absolutely spot on. So again big thankyou to all the hard working and friendly accommodating staff at Lanzarote Village Hotel because despite the setbacks you all made our holiday a very happy one, thankyou!.
