“Good value, but noisy!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Just returned from a stay at Playa club PDC....
It's a nice place, with friendly staff, and clean but basic accomodation..and it has the added bonus of the Spa facility too...which is a bonus compared to the other hotels in the resort, which all seem to be very similar tbh. There is also a well stocked supermarket connected to the hotel, which is handy.

If you are looking for a cheaper type week away then you would do well to choose this hotel....it has all you need....but you will have to be prepared for the noise, as it's in the middle of a busy resort that never sleeps it seems...although if you were to invest in earplugs you would be ok probably.
Very popular with our friends from Ireland, next would be the Dutch...and then a sprinkling of other nationalities...
I be trying else where next time (as in not Lanzarote), but that's because I don't do kids and noise etc...and we are still searching for the type of holiday to suit us...

But bottom line for this hotel is...It's good value for money, friendly, central location and looked better than the majority of the other "similar" hotels in the area.

Room Tip: room between the garden and the pool area will be the least noisy

Dear Customer, thank you very much for your review and high valuation of the complementary services offered by our hotel as the spa and the supermarket and our employees. We regret that you consider our hotel as noisy as we tried to do our best to make it a place relaxation. Kind regards.

just back and after reading reviews was a bit doubtful. all I can say the apartments are spotless, well maintained and the staff are very helpful. the apartments are in a great location and a short distance from the beach.

Room Tip: stayed in room 213, which was at the back of the complex.

Great location, but unfortunately not for young couples. If you don't spend time in the pool area is not a problem, otherwise might be annoying because of the large number of kids and grandparents... taxi rank just outside the complex is a plus, and breakfast in all the restaurants nearby for just 2Euro.

This was my 6th time to Lanzarote and my second time to these apartments. I stayed here from 5 Sep to 15 Sep. Got a second floor apartment which was exactly the same as they were when I stayed here about 8/9 yrs ago!!

First the good........Cant beat the location! Apartments are clean. Also we had a late flight home on the last day and they had an apartment available so you could shower and change (very handy). This was one of the few recently renovated apartments. Reception told me they were 20 Euro extra a day upon my arrival.....not worth an extra 200 Euro over a 10 day period in my opinion!
Handy supermarket a few steps down from the pool.

Now the bad.....Im not one for getting up early just to get a sunbed, but there are so many idiots who do this and then dont use the sunbed for half of the day. Every day when i came down there were hardy any available and yet only about 10% would have bodies on them and just towels on them. It is just so rude to leave a towel sitting there for 5-6 hrs reserving a bed.
As mentioned before the sunbeds are very uncomfortable as are the beds in the apartment. Asked reception for a second pillow which helped a bit but matress was terrible. The only way to get sleep was to drink heavy :) Also no A/C didnt help but wouldnt really expect it at the price paid for these apartments. The cleaners were also VERY noisy in the mornings. So basically, forget about getting a solid sleep!
I wouldnt bother eating at the pool bar as the are plenty of much better options on your door step!

Now the DANGEROUS!!!.....In the apartment there were live wires for the cooker exposed under the cooker, which were not protected at all (see pic) and a child could easily get their hands on them!! As it happened we were a couple with no kids and this was not an issue for us. This is basic HEALTH AND SAFETY!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Second floor apartment

Just got back 10th sept after spending a week at Playa Club. Location very good and apartments clean but a bit dated. we stayed in ground floor and did get a few cockroaches but I suppose you have to expect it in canaries. All the staff were friendly and polite. The gardens were well kept, pool nice and warm. They could improve in a few areas, no air con in any of the apartments and fans not readily available also you have to pay 15eu for one and may not recieve it till mid week. People reserved sunbeds with towels on everyday of our stay no matresses were available and were extremely uncomfortable hard plastic, a lot were broken so be careful that you dont nip your skin. The snacks at the pool bar looked good and were cheap but I was put of by the extremely dirty floor that I never saw cleaned once, although the food was cooked in the palmeral and the food there was lovely. Dont let the negatives put you of but if air con is important to you then go elsewhere. Very cheap to eat out cooked breakfast 2.50 eu loads of eating places. Can highly reccomend the Great Wall chinese restaruant 6.95 eu for 3 course excellant food very relaxed not rushed and lovely staff. Dont bother paying for transfer taxi cost 12eu and plenty available outside the airport. I would go back to these apartments if they had air con and decent sunbeds.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor

I stayed in these apartments from the 30th Aug-6th Sept.with my friend,two daughters and my grand-daughter age 2, we had a two bedroom apt which was suitable for us.
The main strip with shops etc,was just round the corner which was handy for us as we were pushing a buggy each day.
The staff at the complex were pleasant, a special mention to Victor and Jose who went the extra mile in customer service.
My one dislike about these apartments is that they have no air conditioning.
Good apts and value for money.
