My partner and I are just back from 6 (4 full) days at Playa Club, our first time in Lanzarote. We would certainly go back again. Playa Club is less than 15 minutes from the airport. Puerto del Carmen is certainly an active resort.

Jose at reception was very helpful throughout our stay. We upgraded to a Superior apartment and it suited us. We were in a pool side apartment 163 - the sun was on our terrace in the afternoon which was just what we wanted. The apartment had a microwave, fridge freezer, toaster and a two burner hob. The crockery and cutlery was for 3 people. The bedroom (two single beds which seems to be the norm) had a fitted wardrobe in which there were four drawers plus a safe. You have to pay a small fee for the safe plus a refundable deposit of EUR 10 for the key. We had a problem in getting the safe to work but within 10minutes of reporting this, a maintenance man visited and when he could not get things working, he came back a few minutes later and fitted a replacement safe ! The sitting room/kichenette was generally fine for our needs. As reported by other visitors, the apartment and site was regularly cleaned - our apartment was cleaned with fresh towels on all bar one day. We had decided to have breakfast and lunch at the apartment on a self catering basis - this was okay although, it would have been beneficial if we had taken our own can opener and bottle opener as those provided were not ideal in our opinion. Not sure whether in the high season, Playa Club provide any mattresses or similar on the sun beds - there were none in evidence during our stay - so the local shops clearly did a good trade in lilos and similar items to provide additional comfort for those spending time around the good size pool. If you are looking for a beach with sunshades and comfortable sunbeds then you need to walk about 10 minutes from the complex.
There is a well equipped supermarket adjacent to Playa Club - reception can provide a key to the back entrance of the complex, with a few stairs down to the supermarket. There is also a Spar Supermarket a short walk away ie on the left hand side if you turn right out of the reception area though we did not use it. The "pool bar" is basic but has 2 tvs and the bar man was very accommodating in showing the sport we wanted to watch. There is an adjoining restaurant where Playa Club residents can eat in and receive a 10 per cent discount. We had take away pizzas from there one evening which were good enough. There are numerous bars and other restaurants within easy walking distance of Playa Club. Our definite favourite though was Valentinas, an italian restaurant in the Old Town (Calle Tiede, next to Emma's Cantina) - a 5 minute taxi drive away and a bit more expensive than many, but definitely worth while.

The weather was great so we didn't visit the spa facility.

One definite "criticism" though is that there was no airconditioning in our apartment. This was not a factor during our stay in March but would certainly be something which would deter us from visiting during the summer.

Room Tip: our Poolside room on the ground floor on the east side had sun in the afternoon and was ideal

Just back from 2 weeks in Playa Club and would stay there again in the future without hesitation. I can imagine it would be very busy during the peak season (as would all resorts) but at this time of year, it wasn't completely full so there were plenty of sun loungers every day. Someone goes around every night tidying them up and closing the umbrellas so they are all arranged again in the morning. The complex is set in two parts, Pool area and Garden area. Pool area is closer to the reception which is the only place to enter/exit the complex. It is possible to access a shop from the side of the complex but only with a key card. Very handy instead of going out through reception and onto the strip to drag the bottles of water back. I didn’t find the shop very expensive…..only if you go from all the brands from home. It was open from 8am to 10pm. Taxi costs was approx €15 from the airport and you don’t really need to get a taxi anywhere else if you are staying in the area. It is an easy walk to the beach, directly across the road from the casino and surrounded by restaurants. The complexes own restaurant next to it, El Palmero, offers a 10% discount for guests. Most restaurants in the area offer a take away service. It is possible to cook in the apartment (non-superior) as you have an oven, 2-ring hob and toaster. There is no microwave but enough cooking utensils to get by. Unfortunately there is no washer/dryer facilities onsite but each apartment has a clothes dryer on the balcony. Over the 2 weeks, I think I saw a total of 3 cats. They did not bother me once (and I am not a cat person). There are signs up asking people not to feed the cats. Not once did a cat come up to someone. In fact it was the opposite; they tend to run away as you come close to them. Only issue was that they were a couple of cat fights at night which were a bit annoying but not a major disturbance. Our 2 bed apartment was very spacious. Both rooms have twin beds and loads of storage space with plenty of hangers. There were extra blankets which we did not need. The cleaner seemed to appear everyday: made the beds, brushed and mopped the floors and changed the towels. I can’t wait to go back to Plays Club.

Best holiday in a long time. Service was fantastic, arrived at playa club late evening and were quicly checked in to our pool view room as requestedbut at no extra cost. Left baggage in taxi we booked through a private transfer and the hotel swiftly got i n touh with the company and we recieved our bags the next day. Nothin was too much to ask.

Positives -
- fully equipped kitchen (2 ring hob, toaster, kettle, fridge and all cutlery need) Others apartments also had microwave and oven. No problem as we ate out everynight and only ate at apartment for breakfast and lunch. Even had frying pan for bacon sandwiches!

- apartment was huge, living area, kitchen with breakfast bar, bathroom with bath and shower and hairdryer. Large double bedroom with large wardrobes, shelves and dressing table. Terrace with table and chairs or balcony for those apartments on second floor. No air con but you can hire a fan but i would reconmmend buying one for 10euro from the local shops, lanzarote cools at night so it i not hot and sometimes we needed an extra blanket. T.V which you had to pay 2euro deposit to hire remote bu you got this back at end of hotel once remote returned, 3 english channels.
.
-service was fantastic. Nothing was too much to ask. Maid service 5 times a week, new towels, beds changed, floors mopped, extra toilet roll. Cleaners were lovely and if asked not to be disturbed (late night, lie in needed) they came back at a more convinent time for you
-pool area, large adult pool and a childs pool, snack bar with drinks, ice creams and a pool table, plenty of sunbeds. Also if people left towels on bed early in morning, cleaners took them off as you are not allowed to do this which was good!

-location was the best of all. Right in the centre of lanzarote but away from any noise. Did not have a disrupted sleep once. No hills to climb and 2 min walk to the beach and strip with plenty of bars and restaurants. I recommend the cantina and la canada. All restaurants are reasonably priced. There is a shop at the front and back of the hotel where you can get fresh bread in morning. I recomend walking to the spar ten minutes away if self catering and doing a bigger hop as really good value for money. Large bottle of sangria for 2.5 euros and very tasty. Don buy duty free at airport as cheaper to buy alcohol and cigs and perfume in lanzarote from the shops on strip, just shop around.

Overall, i would strongly recommend puerto del carmen and this hotel. Beaches are beautiful white sandy beaches and i would recommend a trip to costa teguise, only 2.5 euro on the bus, well worth a visit. Ignore any bad reviews, i could not fault this hotel and will definetly be back
