We didn't stay in the hotel bar on an evening so can't comment on entertainment, but there was an entertainment manager who came for a couple of hours during the day and entertained the children by the pool, which they seemed to like.
The location was good too, near enough the restaurants and bars for it not to be a major hike every night, but far enough away for there not to be any noise on an evening.
I would recommend the hotel to families, couples, groups of friends but there are a lot of steps to get to some of the apartments so might not be ideal for people with mobility problems. I would definitely go back to these apartments we had an ace holiday!

The location was ideal, right between the new town and the old, approx 5 minute walk to whichever area you fancied and the beach was the same distance.
The staff were extremely friendly and never once did we have a dirty room, everything was spotless.!
the area was very quiet considering it was only minutes walk to bars and restaurants. great for family holidays and couples!

Amazingly we didn't encounter any insects - maybe this changes in high summer but the temperatures for the week were 23C - 24C, which was fantastic. However, word of warning for this time of year, bring a jacket for night time as it became quite chilly (& breezy) by night.
Food at the buffet breakfast was of a high standard with all comers catered for.
Staff extremely helpful.
However, the entertainments girl who flitted aimlessly around the pool area during the day asking people if they "wanted to play?" (!!) was an unneccessary addition to their team.
Location of the apts is quite central to both the "strip" (Avienda) and the old town and despite it's proximity to the street area maintains a peaceful & tranquil air.

The only minus is that the bar closes at 12am, but there are loads of other bars and clubs a short distance away so I would not hesitate in going back there again and I have been there twice before.
If anybody out there is undecided regarding accommodation in Puerto del Carmen head to the Fariones appartments you will not be disappointed, they should have at least 4 falcons symbol.

superb accommodation, location ideal for both old & new
parts of resort. Would definitely use these apartments again if I was returning to Lanzarote.
Staff very helpful & friendly.
Breakfasts were good, plenty on offer, from traditional fry-up to continental, times were very good as you had from 0730-1030.
Not all rooms had air conditioning and there was an issue with the amount of sunbeds per guests, however this was due to guests from other hotels/apartments using the Fariones' due to the quieter atmosphere around the pool.
Tried lunch snacks a couple of times during our stay
no complaints here, not a great deal of choice though.
Rooms cleaned daily and to a good standard.
Mini club for kids very good, although this was largely down to the excellent kids rep Lucia who is there for this summer only.
Location perfect 10 min drive to airport, situated closer to old town, but within 5 min walk to centre of new town.
Tend not to holiday in the same place, we would have no hesitation in staying here again though.

Pool was very clean, but as apartments became full there were insufficient sunbeds at the pool area.
breakfast was great value with a very wide selection of food to suit all.
Apartments suited both young and older, however little company for my teenage daughter.
Entertainment could have been better quality, however numerous other places to go near by.
But overall great value for money, booked accomodation at alpharoom.com, found them the cheapest.

Food was excellent for lunch's or snacks. Pool side was top of the range and so clean.
I will return to the apartments some day.
