Club Valena
Ranked #40 of 91 Hotels in Puerto Del Carmen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 17, 2009

We stayed in Club Valena for one week in November looking for some winter sunshine. Club Valena is a two-storey, small development of apartments many of which seem to be owner occupied. It is in a quiet end of the resort with Matagorda shopping centre (bars and restaurants) and the beach both ten minutes walk away. We used the bus to get into Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife - the bus stop was around 10 minutes walk away. A taxi home at night from the far end of Puerto del Carmen cost around 7 euros.

Our one bedroom apartment was spacious, modern (most furnishings and fittings were from ikea) and kept very clean. I saw various pictures of apartments in this complex on different websites and our apartment was basic compared to some of the shots - bare walls, no rugs, only basic kitchen appliances. This may be because some apartments are rented out by owners whose apartments are better furnished? Having said that, the furnishings were of a better standard than many other similarly priced holiday apartments I've stayed in so I wasn't too disappointed. There was also a flatscreen television with a number of UK and Irish tv stations (no local stations or other languages).

The apartment also had a large private sun terrace, which was south facing and wasn't overlooked. The complex seems to have been built so all balconies and the pool face south so it's a real sun trap.

Overall the complex was very well maintained - the pool and bar areas were very fresh and clean. It may be difficult to get a sunlounger in peak season, especially since many of them were broken when we were there! There were a few social events when we were there - a bbq and carvery - but we tended to head into town for entertainment. Many of the other guests seemed to be retirees and I think this place would be ideal for older couples looking for a quiet break.

It's worth hiring a car for a few days because there's lots of interesting places to visit on the island include the volcanic national park, various dramatic coastal features created by volcanos including caves and cliffs and El Golfo which has a beach with black sand and sparkly green gems. Towns outside of the resorts had really good value food, particularly the fishing village of Arrieta where we found fabulous fish restaurants.

We have just returned from these apartments and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. They are lovely apartments, very modern, clean, bright and in a quiet location.
The pool area is lovely and there are plenty of sun loungers, the pool bar serves lovely food and the staff are very friendly. The only fault I could find was that there was no blinds on the window so the bedrooms were very bright from early morning.But otherwise we found these apartments great.

There was such a bad smell from the drains espciall yin the bedroom that we had to move the bed to the other wall. Showe didnt work very well very had to switch from bath to shower. The kids pool was dirty and the play area had been all dug up. We meet some really nice people there as this is mainly a residential complex and the properties are owner occupied. There were no other small childer here so our little girl was disapointed. This resort is really more suited to couples and not families with small childeren.

Me and my husband went to club valena in September 09 for our honeymoon. We are both under 30 and wanted a really nice relaxing holiday and club valena was perfect for us. We have been to lanzarote before and both other times stayed in puerto del carmen so this time it was nice to stay somewere a bit more peaceful and better quality restaurants. The apartments were a 5 minute walk to a shoping centre which was filled with restaurants, bars and 2 supermarkets. Just across from this was a beach to and also bike rentals and roller blade rentals.

We rented the apartment direct from the owner and it was spotless. Everything was perfect. The hotel bars food was so good, we couldnt fault it, the pizzas were especially good. The bbq night was really good for 12 euro it was a buffet and we got so much food.

The tv had about 10 channels, but sometimes depending on the signal some of them didnt work properly but for most of the time we had chanel 1, 2, 4,5 and then sky 3 and 2 irish chanels called rte. We never spent much time in the apartment so watching the tv didnt bother us anyway.

As it was september and a quieter time the hotel wasnt full so this was better for us as we easily got a sun lounger and went into the pool when ever we wanted to. There was no need to go down early and put a towel on a bed, there was plenty of beds.

All in all we both had an amazing honeymoon and would go back again.

This is a great complex set in a quiet street in Matagorda 5 minute walk from the beach and pubs/restaurants. The apartments are newly renovated in a very comfortable style with everything you would need. There is a pool bar with very friendly staff and great food. Veronica the chef will cook anything you want that is not on the menu. The pool area has been retiled and there is no problem getting a sun bed. Cant recommend this complex highly enough - will definately be going back before Christmas.

Apartments had everything. Washing machine, full oven and hob, microwave, private terrace. Restaurant on complex had full menu and was inexpensive. The apartment I had would be ideal for a long term stay with such facilities. It just had everything. Staff also were very friendly and helpful. Matagorda itself is a fabulous resort and is ideal for a relaxing time with lmiles of walks and bicycle tracks. If you want a more hectic time Puerto Del Carmen is only 2 miles away

Just got back from a wonderful holiday at club valena complex in matagorda, lanzarote.
The apartments are clean and very comfortable. With the sun shining every day its great to a have a private balcony to relax and enjoy. Matagorda itself is ideal for anyone who wants to chill out away from the bigger and noisier places but it has everything you need on hand. Brilliant restaurants and bars to enjoy.
