La Penita Apartments
Ranked #10 of 91 Hotels in Puerto Del Carmen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 10, 2010

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!

We stayed here for the New Year for one week as a family of nine including two children under 10. We had a fantastic time, largely due to the fact that the weather was great, the location of the hotel was brilliant and the food and cleanliness of the complex cannot be faulted.
The only recommendations I would make is that during the summer months it would be too hot in the rooms as there is no air conditioning and do take a hairdryer as the contraptions they have in the bathrooms are not feasible!
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to family and friends during the colder winter months of the UK, we had a great time.

Booked after reading the reviews and thoroughly enjoyed our time in La Penita. Really clean apartments, friendly staff and a great location. The complex was nice and quiet but only a few steps away from lots of restaurants, bars and shops. Requested a sea/pool view and got exactly that....brilliant.

I recently stayed in the Penita for 1 week in October. We were there as part of a group who had travelled to Lanzarote for a wedding. The apatments are quiet big, and very clean. The staff were fantastic and made everyone feel welcome. There is approx 4 steps from the pool to the reception area, so i don't know whay people are complaining saying there is lots of Steps. 4 !!!!. Our Party was comprised of adults and Children and an infant.
The Penita catered well for the Children, and the very young kids have their own pool. There is a little restaurant onsite, ehich is good for snacks during the day. They also had parrot shows and pool games for the Kids. Would i recommend it, most certainly. Don't believe the negatives on here. It's not 5 star. But very nice all the same

Had a great stay at La Penita, lovely spacious apartments with great facilities. The pool bar is great for lunch during the day, and had entertainment every day. The apartments are in an ideal location, close to everything, but far enough away to get a quiet night's sleep. Would recommend to couples and families alike.

We have literally have just arrived back from La Penita (to the wind and rain) and wanted to say that if you are after a value for money search for some sun then I would def recommend La Penita. Its' clean, set back a little from the main road and the aparts have all you need. The pool is of good size altho could get a little 'tight' in high season I have no doubt but all in all the staff were friendly and we really enjoyed the week. You are not directly in the centre of Puerto del carmen (a good thing) but 2 mins from the beach, restaurants and shops. Its a 5/10 min walk to the main 'strip' but nearby you have all you need. Some places we would recommend - BODEGA TAPAS BAR in the old town, really simple, Spanish, good food in a 'typical' surrounding. ANTICA Itlalian (out of La Penita turn left) great Pizza and if you really want a treat home from home then its' got to be The Codfather Fish'n'Chips and then a drink at The Spot bar! The Playa Terraza restaurant has a great location overlooking the sea and a great menu (a few mins from La Penita). Get up early and appreciate the early morning to when you are there the beach and sea look stunning! Great week and didn't spend loads of money which was perfect!
