Hotel has Seen better days

Stayed here late September and have been mulling on the review for a few weeks. The airport experience in Manchester was horrendous, the queue through security the worst I have ever seen. Flight on Jet2 was good as was the Lanzarote airport experience. Suggest you get a €12 taxi and save on the transfers, you get to the hotel ahead of everybody else, saved us a good hour. Check in was quick, but as mention only us. The hotel location is good, although some time the planes can get a bit annoying, Thursday and Sunday as you are near to the airport...good little walk to see them coming in, sitting on the beach with a bottle of wine.The room was OK, stayed in worst, view good. Only problem were the work men in the back starting work at 8.00am with a chipping hammer on the big pile of stones...probably gone now. Room was a good size, aircon adequate and the balcony fine. The maids were very very good, room cleaned every day to a high standard.The restaurant was OK and the food to a fair quality, but maybe a bit repetitive, but they have to cater for all nationalities...tried the snack bar for one day for lunch, but then ate in the restaurant the rest of the time. The staff were Ok but sometimes a little rude. The bar ..well this is where the story starts go down hill. If you are all inclusive then you have your bar and the paying guest have are treated a little like second class citizens, big queues at your bar and two staff at the pay bar serving two people. Some of the bar staff, both here and the pool bar can very young guy with a wispy beard is head and shoulder above all the rest..acts like he cares, the others....!!!!!!. Good walk into town, around 20-30 minutes, plenty of shops and like bars to visit, shop around in the bars..Magners can go from €4.50 to €2.50 a around €1.50 a pint. Lots of good restaurants, from Indian, Chinese to local Spanish and even the ever present Irish bar. We stayed around the pool for the first few days having been told by reception that the beach recliners were €12/day, as it turned out they were free, which was little annoying that the we were give bum info. We went on the Island tour, booked at a shop not far from the hotel, turn right out of back gate and walk for 10-15 minutes..This was much cheaper than the tour guides pricing (mind U we never saw a Jet2 guide at the hotel during the whole holiday). Llast point, buy all your duty free Booze and fags for the trip home at the local supermarkets, again turn right outside the back gate, much cheaper than the airport..and with Jet2 you have 22kgs luggage allowance... Would I go back here...probably to Lanzarote, but probably not to this hotel.More

Had a wonderful week here

Me & my girlfriend stayed here 20th/27th oct 2014 & had a brilliant time. The room was clean with a sea view couldn't beat waking up to that every morning :) majority of the staff where friendly & helpful. Food was quite good as well don't no what other people have been complaining about & I'm a fussy eater!. The shows we're fun& for the kids & as a 24 year old not so good for me but that's acceptable we were out most of the time . Pools & activities were good loved water polo with the older lot. Only BIG!! Problem there is PEOPLE RESERVING SUN BEDS! So annoying you see people very early putting 6 towels down & leaving them all day. There were only me & my girlfriend so if we thought it was a problem will be 10x worse if your a family with children. Also all this wifi complaints your On holiday is wifi life & death no I don't think it is, I never had a problem with it the day I used it. All in all would stay again & am happy I chose sol Lanzarote More


The rudest staff possible

We just arrived home tonight from this hotel staffed by a majority of rude people. We booked an apartment at room only as we were there for a family wedding at the Asperia hotel. The majority of the families with younger children stayed there including the bride and groom. All in all we had probably booked at least 15 rooms in the resort. Upon arrival we were given our room number. This room had two single beds and and a pull out double bed. we'd planned to use the pull out bed and the the kids would use the other beds but the mattress on the pull out was extremely soft and very flimsy. My daughter is only tiny and she wouldn't even have been able to use it. My partner has rheumatoid arthritis and would definitely not be able to use it. He went down to ask about it at reception the guy was very nice and completely understood the issue. He gave us a couple of options of other rooms and promised to get us two stand up beds the next morning. That was the end of the good experience. Two days later we were given an extra soft flimsy mattress. This was after Davy had been back to the desk at lest four times. The man from the first night apologised when he spoke to him and he suggested he talk to the manager. The other reception staff that he dealt with were extremely rude. We eventually got one other bed, the reception manager offered money as compensation but he didn't take it, explaining that money was not the issue. On the web it says that there is wifi in the main hall but it isn't free. My son paid the €30 that they charged to give a wifi code, it was horrendous, outside our room he had coverage, inside the room it diminished, shut the door and it was gone altogether. So he had to go outside all the time to use the wifi. On top of this he had to go back twice to reception to get a new code because it wouldn't work. First time it was just replaced, the second time they implied that he had given the code to other people who had tried using it. He said that this wasn't the case and the guy shrugged at him and said what did he want him to do!! Another trip for my partner to the desk, another strong conversation, They then gave a new code but it was still as bad. In all I would say we would never stay here again and nor have either of us came across so rude abrupt staff in a hotel.More

Never again

Stayed in this hotel on recommendation of a friend. I would never stay again. Was supposed to stay for 6 nights however had to leave after 2. The place was dirty in general and the room was the worst I've ever stayed in. The sinks were blocked, there was ants in the kitchen area, bathroom and wardrobe. The floors were filthy when we arrived and there was mould on the windows in the bathroom. There was also a substance on the ceiling as you entered the room. Not enough sun loungers for the amount of guests who are there and they are all piled on top of each other with no room to get in and out. The heated pool is freezing too, which was the reason I had booked this hotel for my son. I would definitely not stay again or recommend it to anyoneMore

Georgina K,

Great Holiday.

We stayed as a couple here at the end of September. It was a real last minute holiday and we decided to go self catering as we have done all inclusive at other resorts and find you can get bored. This resort is right in the beach and only 10minutes taxi ride from the airport. A lovely clean resort with well kept pools and clean public areas. There is an on site shop for your basics as well as a gift shop and a short walk away is a bigger supermarket for your self catering essentials. Taxis are quick and well priced to Puerto del Carmen centre but also not a bad walk along the beach, about 15/20 minutes. What was a real treat was for my birthday which was whilst we were there they put a bottle of fizz in the room to help me celebrate. Such a lovely surprise and unprompted too! Would recommend. Staff were always polite and efficient and all round the hotel is well represented. We ate by the pool a couple of times and in the main restaurant once and couldn't fault the food.More
