The rooms are clean and I was very impressed by the pool area, as there were plenty of sun beds with parasols. This hotel does not have problems with people reserving sun beds so it was nice to stroll leisurely after breakfast to the pool instead of having to get up at 5:00am to join the masses!
The food was wonderful and the specialty cooking was different each night with Indian, Chinese and paella being just a sample of the dishes on offer at the station on various nights. All the staff were very polite and friendly.
We watched a couple of the entertainment acts which were fine though it is always difficult to provide for a multi-national audience. Similarly, we only visited the beach once but if you walk along the beachfront (rather than going directly outside the hotel as the rocks make it hard to access the sea) there is a large beach area.
I would definitely return to this hotel and thought it was good value for money for my two weeks.

The good points -
Food was nice, i am a very fussy eater so i was worried i wouldnt like the food but when i got there i loved it, theres lots of choice but the only bad thing is if you go for tea late then the food can be cold.
The hotel was clean and the room was cleaned everyday.
The room was simple, with 3 beds, average bathroom and fridge which you have to buy (11euro). The view i had wasnt very good as my balcony was on the roof so you could only see a bit of the sea but most rooms you either have the sea or landscape.
The staff were all happy and chatty and made friends with quite a few of them. They all spoke very good English which was good.
The entertainment was excellent. There was singers, dancers, acrobats and magicians on. However if you are staying for 2 weeks then some of the acts you would have to see twice.
The activites they had in the day were good. There was waterpolo, darts, minigolf, frech bowls (everyday), aquagym, beach trecking, tenis, pingpong, volleyball, rifle shooting, archary, dancing. I may have missed one or two out but they were all good and you won free drinks if you won.
The location was good. It was by two supermarkets and the 'strip' had lots of nice retaurants and shops and going to your right was the main beach.
The beach is right outside the hotel. It is very quiet but if you walk about 2minutes away then you can get to the sea and where everyone usually goes.
Bad points -
The room could of been a little bit bigger with perhaps a kettle for tea and coffee.
The drinks could be a bit cheaper.
Overall the hotel was great and i reccommend it to all ages. I think i will come back to this hotel in the future.

Quite simply this hotel is fantastic, worth the little bit extra that you pay, we did take in some of the shows and they were excellent (particularly the riverdance Irish type dancing).
Our daughter who is 4 years old attended the mini disco every evening, the lady that runs this (Judith) is quite simply a natural with kids.
Food is outstanding.
This hotel is excellent we will be going bak next year.
The food is outstanding

The food is very varied and we found the restaurant staff were very helpful.
The hotel is very spacious and is very clean and very comfortable.
The entertainment was well presented , perhaps geared to the more mature client! I'm not good at ballroom dancing. There were a variety of acts who were very good.
The hotel is only 4 floors high which was great.
We had a really good holiday.
The manager is usually around overseeing, and making sure that everything runs smoothly. We spoke to a number of older guests who come to this hotel more than once year. It is very popular.

Generally we had a very good holiday at this hotel. For what we paid it represented very good value for money.
The reception staff were great, the food was plentiful, varied and of a high standard....something for everyone, no matter how fussy you might be.
Restaurant staff were brill.
Hotel was spotless and the 'chambermaids' were faultless.
There are 2 main pools, both of which were very clean. We used the 'upper' pool most days as it was less salty than the other. There are plenty of sunbeds although if you want some shade, (and you will!),you will have to get up early to 'reserve' those beds......the sun 'umbrellas' are in a fixed position.
Great beach location, stunning views and direct access to a brilliant beach of 'Los Pocillos'.
Daytime events...boules, waterpolo, water aerobics, pistol and rifle shooting, archery etc. Great fun with prizes.
A comprehensive kids club.......the younger ones were occupied all day finishing off with a 8pm disco.
Taxi rank and bus stop immediately outside of the hotel...taxis very cheap, bus to Teguise market on a Sunday is 2.80 Euros one way.
Quietish location but only 5 min walk to the nightlife on the 'strip'.
2 cheap supermarkets close by (make sure you hire a room fridge @ 11 Euros !!!).
If your into an early morning jog, leave the hotel, turn right and run along the new promenade towards Matagorda..fantastic.
Well there aren't any really.
If you want to be picky then the bedrooms are a bit on the small side, in particular the bathrooms.
The drinks at the hotel are a bit pricey and the service was sometimes slow.
Extra charge for a fridge (a must).
The evening entertainment is what you expect in the Canaries......average (alcohol does help!!)

I was a little concerned about previous reports about grumpy, unfriendly staff, but found the opposite when we arrived. Very friendly and made a fuss of the children and always polite and helpful. They even offered us breakfast at 3am so we could have something before our flight home !!
Food was excellent, the themed area offered, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Italian, Spanish food as well as the main selection - you could not go hungry.
The childrens pool and playgroung were perfectly positioned so the children could have freedom but couldn't get to the main deep pool with out being seen.
Mainly older couples and a few families with young children like ours when we went. Everyone so friendly, it was like having 20 sets of grandparents with you with them making a fuss over the children. Other families, though not many were very friendly and the children were never short of anyone to play with.
The evening entertainment was varied - Abba, Bee Gees, Beatles tribute bands, Acrobatics, Dancers, Magicians. All very good and kept a 2 and 4 year old entertained till past 11pm.
The hotel position was a the start of the road of shops leading down into old town of Puerto Del Carmen. Away from the noiser bars but close enough to have a lovely walk in an evening. Taxis just outside the hotel for the 2 or 3 euros ride directly down to the old town if you didn't want to walk.
Excellent holiday will go back.

If you stay on the side of the sea whilst walking at night you don't get pestered by the touts trying to get you into the bars.
The hotel was very clean and the food was second to none. There was a superb range of different dishes on offer each night. The staff were friendly and helpful enough, and the entertainment was very good.
The pool area was very acceptable with a choice of the beach as well, next to it.
We will definitely be visiting the hotel again and again and again.
Lanzarote is my favourite holiday destination.

The first night we arived there was a power cut, this was about 11.30 at night, when we checked in we were just left to find our room in the dark with no explanation what was going on!
The hotel was clean and had a lovely poolside area overlooking the beach. This got very busy though and if you didnt have your towel down by mid morning you didnt have a chance all day!
The food wasnt up to much it was mostly cold and it got very samey. Needless to say we were eating out every night by the 4th night.
Can really comment on entertainment, we stayed in the hotel one night and were bored so most nights we were in all the main bars along the front
Staff werent the most friendliest.
Location was quite but still close enough to be near everything in Puerto Del Carmen.
Lanzarote however is excellent and we would definitely go back!
Have stayed in better 3 star hotels! We were dissapointed
