“Excellent place to stay in Puerto del carmen!”
Reviewed April 10, 2011

We booked a holiday to Lanzarote last minute and unfortunately didn't loom up our hotel on trip advisor until after we booked. Big mistake! The hotel had had several robberies in the last year! We were horrified so we quickly changed to los gracioseros and we were so glad we did! These apartments are a few streets back from the main strip which means they're nice and quiet. From the moment we got there, the service was excellent! The staff were really helpful, giving info on buses around the island etc.

The apartments are basic but spacious and clean! The maid cleaned our room 3 times during the week which was ample, afterall it was self catering. All the apartments have a nice big balcony or terrace which we loved sitting out on for an early evening beer or 2!. The apartments are also low rise like much of the islands properties.

I would recommend the pool bar, an English breakfast cost 3.50 and drinks and snacks were reasonable. The pool was nice but freezing! But the beach is only 15 mins away. There is also free parking outside the apts should you hire a car.

Al in all, if youre looking for a cheap but decent place to stay, definitely try here. We had a great week! Wish we were still there!

stayed between 7th and 17th march 2011.rooms are basic have 2 ringed cooker,kettle, toaster and fridge. each room has its own electric water boiler so you have constant supply of hot water.found the mattress on the bed hard.rooms need updating but are ok.the staff are fantastic, cant do enough for you.the pool side bar is run by 2 girls they are friendly and make you feel welcome.the bar serves full english breakfast(proper bacon and sausage) plus snacks ie burgers,toasties and sandwiches. the food is good and reasonable priced.they show live football on the tv in the evenings.they have sky tv in the bar so while you have your meal you can watch any english channel you want.plenty of room by the pool plenty of sun loungers no parasols.5mins from town centre where there are loads of places to eat at reasonable prices. 3 supermarkets close by english papers available from 10am. about 15mins from airport taxi costs 12 euro its not the ritz but not the pits.its cheap and cheerful a good place to chill out the staff from reception,pool bar and maids are so friendly they make you feel welcome would go back there again

We'd read all the reviews before we booked and have to agree with everyone who said positive things about these apartments. Absolutely ideal for people who want a break where they can feel welcome and have plenty of peace and quiet at the same time. The week we were there was pretty poor weather wise but we still had a great holiday. We hardly had any contact with reception but the one occassion we did, to ask for a frying pan, the service was excellent. We were given a brand new one, delivered by the maid, within minutes. Although there were only 2 rings for cooking we managed fine, there was a toaster, good kettle, and the fridge was actually a fridge freezer. The water in the taps and shower was piping hot. We were in apartment 118 which is downstairs and has a lovely large terrace, right next to the bar, but we never had any problems with noise. The bar closed at 8pm so we didn't spend a lot of time there, but when we did, we were made to feel very welcome and can state quite catagorically that the drink is the real McCoy, and the measures are large. It's the kind of place if you want to join and chat to other guests and staff, you can, if not, you can have all the peace in the world. The apartments were kept clean by the very pleasant cleaning staff, our bedding and towels were changed twice during our stay, which was fine as we were self catering and that's what it means, we catered for ourselves. Despite the weather being poor, and the pool freezing, it was kept clean every day as was the surrounding area, not easy with the near gale that was often blowing. Puerto Del Carmen is good too with lots of good bars and restaurants. We intended not to go out to eat very often but enjoyed the first two places we went so much we went to Pinochio's twice and Buffalo Grill three times and would recomend both. Anyone travelling without an included transfer would do well to use the taxis from the airport. They are very reasonable, we paid 15 Euros each way which included a tip and this worked out at a lot less than the cost of a shuttle transfer and was obviously a lot quicker.

We stayed at The Los Gracioceros for a week in the middle of Jan 2011 and had a brill time. The appartments are huge ( apt 107 ) with more cupboard space than most small homes, they were cleaned twice during the week and the shower was nice and hot with good pressure. There was a good fridge , a kettle, a toaster and a two ring hob but no oven. The lounge area had settee, two chairs and a coffee table along with a dining table and four chairs. Outside there was a good sized pool with a kiddies section along with an excellent pool bar serving good food and quality drinks. All the staff were very friendly and we spent a good few hours drinking and chatting with them. The appartments are only a ten minute stroll down past The Mucky Duck English Pub to the sea front and the many beaches, and being set back a bit are very quiet in the evening . To sum up a budget appartment that offers excellent value for money in a great location. Dont go there expecting The Hilton and you wont be dissapionted, we didn`t and had a great time and will be going back next year. One item to note is that although there is a large sun area around the pool with loads of sunbeds, there are no umberellars. PS Ignore the comments made by silly girls who want champagne lifestyle on lemonade money as all there comments about the appartments and the island are totally unfair, some people will never be satisfied.

Why this complex has only 1 star, is surely wrong. It should be at least 2/3 stars. Came home yesterday having spent a wonderful week & would recommend it to anyone. from the location, staff & the overall facilities, we could not find a fault.
We had a spotless 1 bedroom apartment which had all you require & also a large balcony.
The pool bar & restaurant had great food & the drinks were, shall i say, more than generous ! We were given a lovely welcome from both Renate in reception & Bev in the bar .
You could go a lot further & fare a lot worse.. Please note the rater bad review given a few weeks ago.& cmpare it with the dozens of other great reviews You will enjoy a holiday here.
Quite simply the best !!!

We paid £155 for a week self catering in Jan 2011 for 2 adults and 2 kids and friends with their kids here and we were not let down, with a week of blue skies and 23/24 degrees we had a great winter holiday. These apartments are the usual "run of the mill" low rise apts, nice and clean and no reason for complaint. Will come back without a doubt!
