Great base hotel

Lovely Hotel Pros: clean and comfortable rooms, good sized pools well maintained, nice reception staff. Our hotel experience was good great location right on the beach and lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. A great base for your holiday Cons: the buffet in the hotel was not nice unfortunately food was cold and not worth price and the waiting staff were not very pleasant which made us not want to eat in the hotel, although staff else where in the hotel were lovely. The hotel gym is badly in need of repair hardly any of the equipment worked apart from these two things it was a lovely experience and I would visit again with my kids this time because they have lots of things for kids to do.

Return for 13th year, fantastic area

We have enjoyed going to SOL Lanzarote the second two weeks in May each year for the past 13 years. Over the years we have met very nice people and also made friends with them, continuing today. The staff are very pleasant and very supportive, we can advise that a lot of the staff have also been there on our yearly visits. The rooms are clean, tidy and the room is cleaned daily. The food can be varied and although there is choice there is a clear difference in choice and quality when the weekend arrives as this is when the locals arrive. We have tried both half board (preferance) and all enclusive. We enjoy going out and about during the day, when we first tried all inclusive items like water were bottled and are now given in plastic cups used for water dispensers in UK. The food offered to all inclusive and half board is the same so lunch and main meal can be the same. We are not drinkers and therefore only used the bar on a few occasions. Reception can be slow,however again staff are very supportive. The area of Matagorda is quite and the hotel was quite except one night when some individuals were noisy. Again the first in 13 years. There are family facilities and although I traveled with my wife it was popular with famalies. I am a wheelchair user and again the facilities ie dining room, and bedrooms were spacious ( if in appertment) the rooms described as suitable for disabled are satisfactory, but other than a walk in shower they are nothing special. You can enter the lift in a manual wheelchair but require to travel alone as they are very small. A negative for us after 13 years is that the hotel now charge 30 euros for the room safe for 14 days something that has been free previously. We did speak with the manager about this, he was not interested giving a big speech about money being invested in the hotel, difficult times. I advised him to try living in Britian. Another negative is the charge of 30 euros for WIFI for a week. The speed is very slow and it's restricted to the reception area, although we were above the reception and did manage to get access in the room. We are treated excellent by dining staff, and in particular the matrade and dining room staff were very attentive making reservations to the table used by us that allowed good wheelchair access. After 13 years we are now unsure if we will return, the hotel was not full but it appears the addons are at the expense of the guests who are there. This is an honest review of the hotel, I would recommend it as long as you take into account the issues highlighted about additional costs for safe, wifi etc. We watched the iron man compatition and the locals are very pleasant. The weather was 27-35 degrees and was very warm. We love the area and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quite enjoyable break.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Visit Porto Calero and the old harbour area. Plays Blanca and the volcano, it's worth checking tourist areas as some are unsuitable forvthosecwith reduced mobility ie steps and wheelchair users. Book trips at reception it's cheaper than via reps

Nice place, great break

Stayed in one of the appartments ajoining the hotel as we needed kitchen type facilities with a baby. Nice clean appartment with plenty of space. Had the B+B option booked which made it handy in the mornings. Breakfast was lovely with a large selection of breakfast options. The hotel is in Matagorda which is about 40/50 mins walk from Puerto Carmen, but that suited us as we were not hitting the town every night. Also, taxi's are reasonable enough so no problem there. Hotel is near the airport which some people found as a problem, but i liked spotting the planes as they passed and it was cool to walk up along the beach side to the end of the runway. Most of the area around the hotel is pedestrianised which makes it also a bit quieter and safer. Wifi is expensive enough here so it was not an option i went for. Would go back though.

lovely relaxing location

we really enjoyed the experience,the hotel and location are perfect for a relaxing getaway. we only have one complaint and that is to do with the sun loungers. we found the pool area very cramped and the sunbeds very uncomfortable. having stayed with Sol hotels in The Costa Del Sol we expected to find the same comfortable matresses available for customers. maybe you could consider looking at this as it would go a long way to providing a really restful break,

Family Break

Quiet area with not much noise at night which is suitable for families and couples looking for a relaxing & chilled out break. Great pools and sun area and straight across from the beach. Rooms were well kept and spacious. Kids seemed to be well entertained during the day and at night.

Great for families - stay away if you are single

Hotel is super for families - superb facilities and activities for children. The location is also very good. However, if you are 20-30 and single stay away. You will be bored out of mind, because there arent many things to do for this age group in the area.

You get what you pay for!

Overall a quite enjoyable stay. Rooms were relatively clean and were serviced daily. Balconies were poor though with peeling paint and alcohol stains on wall. Staff were excellent. I had my 9 year old daughter with me and good entertainment in the evenings to keep the kids occupied. 3 pools with 1 heated, but still pretty cold as you would expect in December. Rated as a 4 star but in my opinion only a 3 star. Didn't try the hotel food as was self catering. For what I paid for my 10 day break an excellent choice.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

Local shops in Matagorda are not very good so appx half hour walk or a short drive to Puerto Del Carmen is a good option for shopping/ restaurants,etc.

Perfect for the Family

A very good place for family holidays. Although the hotel is located near the airport, the noise of plains does not reach the space of the hotel. The staff is fully cooperative and helps every one to improve the experience. The menu is varied, based on the traditional spanish cuisine. Our saty in this facility contributed to enjoy our holidays.
