Just back from Lanzarote for the fifth Christmas/New Year in a row. We always used to stay in the Atalaya but when we found they were no longer operating, selected La Penita on the basis of Tripadvisor. Really liked it and if we go back to Lanzarote for year six, will definitely stay there again.
As others have said, the apartments are spacious and well equipped but the main thing is the location - two minutes away from a nice stretch of the Avenida close to the Golden Corner (one of my favourite bars) and the Terrazza cafe down at the beach side. It's really convenient to spend the day on the beach and then just have to cross the road and go up a flight of steps to be back at base for a shower etc. Despite the location it is pretty quiet (a bit of street noise, nothing much). If you were down at the front near the Sol y Sombra bar their music (good as it is) would probably disturb you but we were far enough away for this not to be a problem.
Didn't spend a lot of time in the complex itself as we were out and about all the time although did have one snack and beer in the pool bar which was of good quality, and the service was efficient. They have British football on the tv in there as well, which was good. The kitchen was well equipped (cooked a few meals there as well as breakfasts to save money) and the apartment big enough for two people to sit around and relax in and not get in each other's way!
The complex was not that crowded when we were there and I don't know how it would be in high summer. Also the soundproofing is nonexistent but in my experience this is true of all these kinds of apartment complexes, and other than the noise of folk arriving and leaving it was not a big deal. The beds were also quite uncomfortable but, again, no worse than any other apartment I've stayed in. Overall, would recommend La Penita and will probably be there again!
