A spacious beach is the icing on the cake at this hotel, which comes with 4 pools and restaurants.
This huge place is split between a main building and an annexe across the gardens. Just over the road there’s a huge sandy beach, and Puerto del Carmen is a half an hour walk away, or 5 minutes in a taxi.
The hotel does well for pools, with 4 plus a couple of extra ones for kids. There’s a quartet of restaurants, including a Mexican. As for activities, there’s everything from archery to art classes.

Fantastic Family Holiday
Room was clean and had a nice view, Great cocktails easy to gets drinks anytime from the self service, staff were excellent always smiling and happy to help. All the pools were clean and we could change our beach towels everyday. The restaurants where great we tried all 3 and the food was excellent in all of them and you could always get a table, I really enjoyed not having to queue for anything in this place. The evening entertantment was good the staff make a real effort my Son enjoyed the mini disco every evening and they had plenty of activities through out the day. Fantastic hotel you will have a great time.More

Glad we just booked a week,
I have stayed in quite a few Riu's,this was 2 hotels joined i to one, it was far too big there was only one bar to serve all the complex, the restaurant was over busy at meal times breakfast we decided to have breakfast out even though we were all inclusive, â¬5 for 2 english breakfast at the Golden corner excellent place, we stayed over the bridge area quieter side, sun bathed but up early before 6,30 to reserve beds, but ended up with a nice alcove, no one at the side of you, all beds close together in rows,, our room was on level 2 with a large balcony this got the sun afternoon time till evening , bathroom had a bath with shower very clean ,we also had a couple of evening meals out, left out of the back gate to a friendly place called Solymar excellent food , Reception did change the chairs to reclining ones for us which was excellent ,there is no free wifi at this riu which surprised me really as everywhere else we went was free , I had my 60th birthday here, , with being a member of riu, i had a bottle of prosecco in the morning and also one at the Asian at night which was really nice, we didnt get to eat at any of the others fully booked, glad i booked when we arrived, there a a large area over the bridge which seemed a waste,it was where the riu palace reception was this could be made into a little bar area, we stayed here for the week, glad i didnt book any longer, i would go back to los pocollis but not to this hotel, More

More upsides than downsides
We have been to this hotel several times and it never fails to deliver. Good food and good service. No hassle to get drinks at any time of the day or night. Sundbed reserving was a problem this time which was a shame.......there are more than plenty to go around and each pair has a parasol so its really not a problem. Downsides, there are long distances to walk (its two hotels joined together)if you are booking from a UK tour operator, so the infirm or elderly may find this a problem. Apart from this not much more to worry about. The Thomson rep service was particularly poor on this visit..........we were given the wrong taxi pick up time........which they seemed to think was amusing.More

Family holiday .
We stayed first two weeks of August last year (2014) There was 8 of us in our party , 4 adults and children ages of 9, 12, 15 & 16. From the first instance hotel staff were lovely and pointed us to the dining room to eat while they checked us in. We were very fortunate and were given an upgrade to a suite in the quieter part of the hotel . This room provided safe, fridge and tea making facilities. ( I had bought a kettle with me) but I think if we hadn't been upgraded we wouldn't of had these. Rooms spotless , hard working cleaners etc. Being on quieter part of hotel was fine, it is a short walk to restaurant , which we did not find this a problem, if you don't fancy going over bridge then you can walk through gardens. We always used pool, snack bar and swim up bar which was nearest our rooms. I think it was quieter than the other one but I think the entertainment was based more at the other pool. Hotel provided bottled water throughout our stay and another touch we loved was the free pool towels you could have each day. Restaurant was big and self service and took a couple of nights walking round to know layout. There was lots of variety but try not to put a bit of everything on plate as soon you would get bored so I try a different type of meal each night. The Asian restaurant is lovely so make sure you book your place as soon as possible, there are 2 sittings on certain nights and you can visit this once a week, also the Mexican theme (they are in same little restaurant but open it on certain nights as Asian or Mexican ). Drinks in snack bars and restaurant are self service apart from cocktails and prosseco, and you could take snacks and food to sun beds if wished and there were crates dotted around to put your empties in. There is a gate from the grounds to the main road which runs along the beach. The beach names stands for 'puddle' beach and you will notice no sunbathing in front of hotel as it ends up with huge puddles over it, which is great fun for splashing around in warm water. Further along the beach both ways are sun beds to hire, just beware it us windy and you can get a bit sand blasted and do not take inflatables into the sea. We witnessed a young boy in a small dinghy be swept out, his poor dad swam after him but couldn't catch up and both had to be rescued by the lifeguard , although all okay it makes you realise how careful you need to be. At the beach you can see all the planes coming in but it is not too noisy at all, if you walk left out of back gates you can walk further round and see even better views of the planes coming in. Left or right of hotel gate takes you to shops, the main one (Puerto del Carmen) by turning right, within 5 mins you are by shops but probably 15-20mins to middle of that main resort, we used to do most nights to walk off dinner. The resort itself is quite modern and all quite flat so easy to walk about. We went to the volcanos and although I had been years ago still just as fascinating. We also went to the water park and although quite worried about reviews (saying dirty etc) it was fine, we all had great fun. Entertainment at hotel was quite good when we did watch it. Usually started 9.30 but seats filled up before this. The team speak numerous languages so sometimes by time English came out I missed what they said (may be me I do that with automated calls!). They did some good shows and were very friendly and near the end of our holiday I did think maybe my youngest may of joined in some activities if we had been at the busier pool as they didn't come round our pool very often. The teenagers in the hotel spent most of evening in reception where you can pay for wifi, luckily that's where it was only available so you actually got to speak to your children around the pool instead of them bring on social media ! We had a lovely relaxing holiday, mostly spent lounging round the pool (no music over speakers), there were lots of sun beds and you could get one or two in quieter places , we found being eight harder to get so yes we put towels out in the morning, but straight after breakfast we were there for the day. Inflatables were not allowed in pool but children did use them and I think it's just using common sense and being aware of people, same with ball games etc. All in all, Lanzarote was great, the hotel was very nice with friendly staff and I would go again but there are too many other places to try and not enough hols!More
