This is a great hotel. The hotel is clean and tidy, The food is Fantastic! We were a couple but were not put off by the amount of kids around the place. It is very close to the airport and a short drive to the main socialising areas. Overall this is a well run and organised hotel.More
We travelled as a group of 8 as a family with three children aged 9,10 and 12. The all inclusive package meant the kids never went hungry and has the chance to try all types of food. This was spoilt by the insatiable English appetite for nuggets and chips at every opportunity - not consumed by us I hasten to add! The week is made more interesting food wise by different themed nights and the BBQ on Saturday was delicious. Picking up on some previous comments; Sun beds - we got EIGHT sun beds all together EVERY day - not by towel dumping at 3am - we had breakfast and a bed by 10am. Not sure what time people who complain are trying to get them, but we never had a problem. Chairs in entertainment area - yes, these are limited and you need to have an early dinner or be creative and get some extra chairs from outside - not a major issue. Air con - seems a bit hit and miss, 2/3 rooms nice and cold, the other was never cold enough - we told reception who sent a maintenance man quickly but didn't make it any colder. Staff attitude - never had a problem - always polite and happy to help, can't see why people who seem to have stayed at the same time as us had issues? Now a few tips - if going to Rancho Texas, the local water park - a taxi is â¬5 and you can miss the crowds at the entrance by not getting the bus. A hire car is dirt cheap! â¬75 for 3 days and you have the flexibility of exploring the island which is 45mins maximum to any destination. Timanfaya - the volcano, again use a hire car - go after lunch to miss the queues that go for lunch The green caves - a bit pricey to see a nice vista, but if that's your thing?! James del agua - well worth a visit and a fantastic secret to be found, plus 2 minutes from the green caves! Teguise - a lovely little village and busy market on Sunday mornings. Duty Free - DO NOT BUY ON PLANE!!!! All spirits were much cheaper in local shops (Bombay sapphire gin is â¬12, Smirnoff vodka â¬10 a litre. Thomson say Â£30 for 2 is a money saving deal!!!!) Overall, a great island, great hotel and weather is perfect as the wind takes the bite out of the heat! BUT!!!!!!! Don't be complacent - the sun is HOT HOT HOT and WILL burn you even if you think it won't - even when cloudy!!!!More
Great holiday- BAD feelings about sunbed situation
Quick flight easy fast transfer to hotel, quick check in and we had a very large spacious room for me my partner and my son who is 11 with a sliding door to separate the rooms for privacy. We also had a balcony over looking the sea so could sleep with the sliding doors open and listen to the waves. Lots of stuff entertainment for adults and kids, The food was mixed every night so if your not a fussy eater you can always find something to eat. The beach was great with waves in the sea big enough to have fun in we had a dinghy and surfed the waves with it making sure we had the guide rope fastened onto a adult in case the wind took it. We went out for dinner a couple of times to mix it up a bit nice Chinese restaurants around for a bit of a flavor . We also went to the anchor bar a 5 minute walk away for food and drinks and it had a comedy drag show on and was very very funny we went twice ;-). The only bad thing i can think of the whole holiday was the sunbeds 250 for a full capacity 650 people hotel. There were ways to get a bed but you just have to be quick .More

My family holiday in Lanzarote
I've stayed at this hotel on four occasions, most recently in June 2012, and, I think that the facilities overall are very good. Although, with regards to the accommodation, they need to put in better facilities for wheelchair users ie the bathrooms in the bedrooms should have a wheelchair that could be used by a disabled person who cannot walk or stand, while they are showering. Also the door widths into the bedroom and bathroom need to widened. Other than that the facilities are very good. Entertainment and facilities are very good. Staff pleasant. I've spent several enjoyable holidays thereMore

Self-catering facilities dismal, no workspace, no kitchen table and chairs, plugs for kettle and toaster in bedroom. Music by day, very loud. Not enough sun beds, very little space left during the day when all sunbeds moved and occupied. More
