Excellent hotel. Arrived at 830pm and sent straight to restaurant to eat. No complaints about the food - plenty of choice during every meal time for all ages and tastes. Even on the days that 1 person wasn't keen on the hot food, the salad option was always there with a plentiful choice. Initially thought that the staff were being overly attentive when they take your plate away as soon as it was empty, but soon got used to this. The waiter's were excellent and very friendly.
There were 5 of us, 4 adults and 1 child and we were given rooms next door to each other. Asked for quiet rooms on booking and had quiet rooms on ground fllor, within 10 metres of pool! Staff were excellent - very polite and friendly and could not do enough for you.
The hotel and surrounding area was extremely clean - very little rubbish about the place. The hotel is only a short walk from the beach, but to be honest, didn't feel the need to go there as hotel pool adequate. Hotel pool cleaned daily and although smaller than I 1st thought from looking at the brochure photo's, was adequate enough. Yes - people do put they're towels on the loungers before breakfast, but this was mainly done by Brits - stop blaming the Germans all of the time!!
The shopping area of peurta Del Carmen is about 5 mins walk away with the usual tourist shops and boutiques. Beware that perfume, etc is cheaper on the flight than in Lanzarote. Fags and alcohol cheap, but everything else (chocolate / crisps / pool supplements - lilo's, balls, etc) very expensive!!
The hotel room was big enough for three - 2 adults and a seperate bed made up for our 11 year old daughter. The room itself and the bathroom were spotless and again large enough for our purposes, although the bath was on the small side.
Went in August - weather was hot, but with relatively stiff breeze on most days, particularly during the mornings, but became very hot in afternoons in direct sun. Will most definately return to this hotel again.
