“air conditioning a must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2009

just back from Lanzarotte stayed in Fariones very spacious and clean.
A heat waye while we were there Temperatures reached high 40's. No airconditioning in rooms made it most uncomfortable. Rooms urgently need air conditioning.u

we have just returned from lanzarote where we stayed at the fariones apartments and it was a pleasure staying there,the breakfast was worth getting up for even after being out till the late hours.these apartmens are well located as its easy access to the old and new town of puerto del carmen.this was our second stay there and we will be going again. Beware you have to set your alarm to get your sun lounger otherwise you dont as people are reserving them with towels and then go off for the day leaving others without sun loungers.

Stayed here for a week in room 326 in the first week of June.. The Apartment was a nice size (one bedroomed) and was always cleaned on a daily basis. Had a great time staying in this accomodation.. The pool area was always kept clean with plenty of sunloungers to lie on.. In the mornings one of the staff from the Apartments would arrange different games and every day there was a different one to play and they have a pool table also by the pool...The pool bar had a good menu if you wanted to get something to eat... The only small compliant I have is that breakfast is open until 10.30am, and I went down one morning at 10am to get a bite to eat but there was only cereal / fruit available, and do think that if its open until 10.30am they should ensure all breakfast items are available, e.g. bacon, sausages, eggs, though I learnt my lesson and got up earlier..These Apartments are in a great location as the are in between the New Town and the Old Town... The Old Town is hard to get around, and im sure if you have a buggie with children it would be even harder as they are digging up all the roads, though the New Town is very accessable and the roadworks you can't hear from the Apartments...Found the staff very helpful and pleasant.. would definitely stay again in these apartments if I was to Puerto Del Carman again..

Hi

I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Lanzarote and although the weather was not the best, I cannot fault these apartments. They are very clean, cleaned daily, the staff are very friendly and willing to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The breakfast is excellent with a great choice for all. What would stand out most for us was the location we were between the new town (the strip) and the old town within minutes from the beech and the harbour. Eating out I would strongly recommend restaurants along the harbour and in the old town however all of the Lanis restaurants we went to were excellent stay away from any restaurants along the strip (beach area) with the exception of the Lanis restaurants. I would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone as they are of a high standard and good value for your money....

Just got back from a week at these apartments, weather was dissapointing but the quality of the apartments made up for this, offering us a very relaxing break.
The apartments are very well situated and are the best we have stayed at in PDC (we have been five times). The overall standard of the apartments are very good, they are very well finished and maintained to a high standard.
The staff are all bi-lingual, pleasant and make you feel welcome.
The pool is a bit on the small side but it is heated this time of year which makes a change from other apartments we have stayed at. I would imagine that the pool would be over crowded at the hieght of the Summer, but was fine this time of the year with no problems with availabilty of sun loungers. A nice touch here was the provision of comfortable covers to lay on for your sun lounger.
If I was to find one fault it would be the noise levels in the apartments, the walls seem very thin and you can hear everything in the apartments above and either side of you, but we have found this in most aprartment blocks of this nature.
Overall I would highly reccomend these apartments as a very nice place to stay in PDC.
PS: If you want to drink in the most expensive bar in PDC go to the Rare Auld Times in the Old Town. Our round here was 2/3 euro more than other places we were drinking in!!
WARNING: At present PDC is a building site, the whole strip from the casino to Fariones Hotel has been dug up, they are creating a one way street whilst doing all the pipe work that goes with that. There is only one side of the pavement open and is very difficult for parents with buggies or the elderly. This is due to be finished by April but it looks like they have a lot to do. At present you can not drive down the main strip and no cabs/buses are allowed down either.

Were impressed last year with the overall ambience of the Fariones Apartments and were pleased to find that it was as good as ever. The service, food and cleanliness leave nothing to be desired. One comment I would make is that if you want to get a specific apartment or floor level do not rely on your travel agent or tour company to arrange it. Ring or email the apartments yourself and confirm again the week before you go. We were lucky enough to get the one we wanted but it was more by luck than judgement. Weather was great again, aparently we missed the rain by a week!

A very well maintained, clean and well presented complex. Breakfast is excellent and all staff were helpful and friendly. The complex is well placed for the old port, which in my view is far more attractive than the 'strip', and offers the best places to eat. The only real weakness for me was the poor management of the pool area. The pool is small, there are too many beds for the area and the management do not enforce the rule of removing towels, etc from unoccupied beds. Hence, sad gits get up at 4.30am, or some other ungodly hour, to mark their territory, leaving beds with towels on all day, while they go shopping or have a trip out. Note to management: 'Deal with it'. Anyway, the complex is five minutes walk from a glorious beach so no worries about a place to chill. One small point, the walls seem to be not good at soundproofing noise from other guests, so if you had a noisy neighbour you might have a problem. I would recommend the Fariones apartments and guests can also use the nearby Fariones Hotel and Farinoes Playa facilities.
