La Penita Apartments
Ranked #9 of 91 Hotels in Puerto Del Carmen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 4, 2008

Travelled to Lanzarote in July with my wife and 15 year old daughter. Chose the La Penita Apartments having read all of the reviews. We were not dissapointed! The staff are great and the general service was excellent. The apartments were cleaned nearly every day. The location of the apartments was superb with the main street of Puerto del Carmen being only 3 or 4 minutes away (not that you heard any noise from the apartment). General facilities in the apartment were good - Kettle, Fan, Hair Dryer, Micro Wave Oven etc.

This was a great holiday, very relaxing and I would go back again.

PS - My 15 year old also enjoyed herself as there were others her age staying at the same time.

We stayed at these apartments in March/April this year. Like all the reviews say - they are lovely clean bright and airy apartments in a good location. Quite far from the old part of the town, but taxis are very cheap. We were unlucky with the weather and had 3 very windy days. but the rest of the week was glorious. Having not been to Lanzarote before and hearing it can get windy, we were worried because these apartments have a lot of large palm trees. a couple of nights it was near hurricane winds and the palm trees were shaking and waving about. it was amazing to see them 2 days later, totally still and beautiful sunshine. My advice would be not to go near the Spar supermarket down the steps from the apartments as it is so expensive. Better stick to the Netto. Just ask around and you will easy get directions to it. Must say the evening entertainment in the big Irish bars- such as Charlies and the Dubliner was excellent. Lovely quiet apartments in a good location.

picked these apartments because of excellent reviews - not disappointed - reception staff very efficient and friendly - can't do enough for you - any problems and they rectify them straight away - appartment very spacious and well equiped - microwave, hairdryer, kettle, fridge freezer - apartment cleaned nearly every day - could have done with the bedding and towels being changed a little more often though this wasn't a massive problem - pool area and pool absolutely spottless - staff take care that the water is clean and the sunbed areas and gardens are well cared for - bar area and entertainment very good - activities available nearly every day - football - water polo - bingo - pool competitions etc. -you can take it or leave it if you want - occasionally we found the appartment area noisy at night - however you have to remember that you are situated right in the thick of things in the resort - i would recomment these apartments for couples families and large groups - would definately recommend these apartments to my friends - very reasonably priced - recomment the slow boat 2 chinese restaurant (near the casino) excellent value for money - food delicious - staff excellent - try yum yums for a wicked cajun chicken wrap !!!!

Stayed here last summer with my best friend and her 8 yr old son. We had a wonderful time and loved every minute of our stay and we didnt want to leave. Apartments were very clean & secure. The pool was lovely and there was plenty of entertainment at the pool with sports etc. The food was nice from the place on site and we got our lunch here most days. I would have no hesitation about recommeding this resort for an enjoyable holiday. When I go back to Lanzarote I will be staying here again.

My wife and myself have traveled to the Canaries 2-3 times a year during the past 10-12 years, so it was with a certain anticipation that we booked the La Penita to see if it could live up to its top rating on so many websites.

Without doubt it is very good and you do receive a high level of service from all the staff, and it is clear to see why so many people rave about the accommodation. For a 3* it does deliver.

However whilst I have given it an "excellent" holiday rating, there are always one or two little things which need tinkering with.

As usual the towels do need replacing, there are certain rooms which are of a more pleasing disposition than others, some rooms with a small balacony, pool side area somewhat "Compact", and the kitchen setup means you cannot plug in the kettle, toaster and microwave at the same time. Minor points but relevant on occassions.

Nevertheless these do not outway the many-many positives. Excellent breakfasts are served in the pool side bar, facilites in the kitchen are very good, tower fan in room much needed as the temps rise, free TV if you do wish to stay in of a evening, but as referred to at the top of my review, Location-Location-Location, is fantastic. We have been to Lanzarote 8-9 times in the last 3-4 years, and this location could not be better. Ideal for travelling between Matagorda and the Old Town of Puerto-Del-Carmen. Across the road there are 3-4 lovely coves where you can sunbath all day, with plenty of room and be able to dip into the sea, which after you are in is warmer than the La Penita pool.

Easy walking distance to Tapas, Chineese, Italian, Pizza, Chippy, Bank and shops.

All in all a tremendous holiday and one which we have every intention of returning to in the future.
