I got about 8 supposed to be boiled eggs at breakfast all of them were raw and when I did find one that was cooked it was as solid as a rock 🙄also the other nights that we have eaten here the food all tastes the same and u might as well have got every thing from Aldi and it would have been better
The hotel itself is OK. All the dinners could do with upgrading as very old and uncomfortable. The room was spacious and very clean. What let this hotel down massively for me was the food, which I can only describe as awful. The cheapest cuts of meat used and everything tasted the same. This ruined our experience here. They need to invest in better chefs 100 pct
Travelled with Thomas Cook on Boxing day. Very cramped plane and no leg room at all for my 6ft 3 son who at 15 can't book the extra leg room seats!!! Only 5 minutes from the airport (which is why we booked the hotel as we love planes). Easy quick check in and good instructions to the room. We had Room 2401 on the top floor (only 4 floors). Fantastic large room with sea view. Our son was happy as he had a proper bed and not a sofa bed. Double mirror fronted wardrobe with a safe inside which is 18 euro for the week. plenty of storage space. large sunny balcony with table and 2 chairs. beds very hard - but that seems to be how all foreign beds are!! Spacious bathroom with bath and over shower. Soap and shower gel dispensers. TV but very limited english channels (1 I think), kettle and tea/coffee in the room as well as a fridge. Reception, bar, entertainment room, restaurant, shop, pools, pool bar etc all on ground floor. the hotel seems very big compared to the size of communal areas. I can imagine peak season to be very busy and cramped. There are 3 pools side by side. the middle one is warmer than the other 2 (but not by much) although plenty of kids were using it and inflatables were allowed in too. The usual early morning towel brigade were out in force saving the best sun loungers then leaving them empty for most of the time. It does say they will remove your towels if unattended for more than 30 minutes but we never saw this happen! Plenty of loungers but they are very close together although we never found this to be a problem. Again I think peak season would be a challenge to get a free one if you are any later than 10am. The pool bar is fab. Opens at 11am and serves all sorts. Even bowls of crisps which I've never had on all inclusive before. Bad for me as I am a crisp lover!! Everything is self serve and you can get everything - fizzy drinks, wine, beer, slushes, champagne, water, mini tubs of ice cream, crisps, nuts, pastries, fruit, cake, salad stuff, ham, cheese. Then at 12 they bring out hot food - fries, burgers, hot dogs, pizza, chicken nuggets etc. Its one of the best pool bars I've been to. And theres plenty of outdoor seating either under the shade or in the sun. The restaurant is well laid out. Plenty of choice although some of the stuff didn't seem to go together but we always found something to eat. Show cooking is meat and fish and there was always a queue for this section. The New Years Eve meal was made to feel special and had lovely table decorations and some extras like a seafood section etc. The entertainment room opened at 6.30 (same time as the evening meal opened) and by 8pm nearly all the seats were taken. I watched a lot of people come in, scan the room and leave. It really isn't big enough for the size of the hotel. Mini disco for kids is on at 8.30 pm followed by a quiz or bingo then an act at 9.30pm. We saw some decent acts while we were there and one of the best shows by the Animation team I've seen anywhere. It was advertised as Mama Mia, so we were expecting an Abba tribute, but no, they acted out the Mama Mia film. It was really well done. The bar men were ok but not over friendly. Beer, wine and fizzy drinks were self serve. The cocktails were nice but they were pre-mixed in large jugs ( time saving exercise) There were sometimes large queues at the bar. New years Eve was very busy and at midnight we all went outside round the pool bar area for champagne and an outdoor disco that went on till about 3am. The Matagorda area is quieter than Puerto del Carmen but has still got a range of shops, bars, restaurants there. The promenade is lovely for walking and there are plenty of places hiring out bikes and go carts etc at a reasonable price. 10 minutes walk takes you to the airport where you can stand under the flight path of the planes. It attracts plenty of sightseers, us included! Its fab. The hotel does get the noise from the airport but there are no night flights so it doesn't keep you awake. Straight opposite the hotel on the beach are sunbeds and parasols but these do not belong to the hotel and there is a charge for them. So please be aware! Fantastic wi-fi if you can get connected. I couldn't get on so my son did it for me using his facebook password. Once it connected it worked fab all week from anywhere in the hotel. All in all we had a lovely week away from winter in the UK. The weather was fab while we were there and I would recommend the hotel to anyone. It is 4 star and it is lovely, although I would rate it at the lower end of the 4 star as I have stayed in posher 4 star hotels (if that makes sense!) This is our 4th time to Lanzarote in December and has become a bit of a tradition now. Normally good weather with sunshine but the pools and sea are cold!!!!
Sol Lanzarote was a great hotel. Very clean , very friendly, food available at all times. Had a great holiday and will definitely be returning. Rooms large and clean. Shops not to far and lovely beach on your doorstep.
A very guest accommodating hotel - all staff out to please. From the very start following my e-mail to them pointing out my disability concerns (cannot walk more than a few metres at a time) & requesting if possible a room near the lifts and major amenities - all of which granted and taken care of - nothing was too much trouble. Even ordering a mobility scooter. Many thanks for making this a super relaxing holiday and we'll come again.
Nothing to do with hotel but a bad start with 5 hour delay and lost suitcases for 2 days so a bad start ..but hotel rooms are ok inside but hotel grotty outside and needs a good paint up .i have stayed in many hotels in this island and this hotel has the worst food canteen school dinners .and not very warm food .lack of choice .i would only complain when needed so i wish i stayed at the riu hotel up the road .bar staff have no personalty at the pool side .sorry not reccomended
We, a family of 5 with 3 kids, just enjoyed a relaxing and pleasant week of holidays in this hotel : + great location on the beautiful beach of Matagorda; + a Sol suite with breath taking sea view from the terrace and bedroom, 2 large spatious well renovated rooms ; great to wake up with the sound of the sea; + 3 swimming pools, 1 (middle one) heated, + kids loved the entertainment (which gave us some precious rest); + sport activities such as zumba, yoga, water bike,... + food is good, all inclusive (also drinks such as cocktails, cava); - some details which would lead to further improvement: the included red wine or coffee could improve, possibility to get a pakked lunch to take with you during a day trip (e.g. around the Island which we recommend), our rooms were at the sea but in the quiet and relaxing area of the hotel (as we like quiet and early evenings with kids), rooms right next to the bar are more for those who go to bed late, ... + friendly staff. Would recommend staying in the hotel.
This is a lovely hotel in a great location. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful and the restaurant staff are very professional. There is a good selection of food available for each meal and lots of wines and beer as well as soft drinks available on tap.
Had requested adjoining rooms suitable for the needs of an elderly person in one, and we got just that. Spectacular rooms overlooking the pools and the sea, capturing the sun on the balcony all through the day. Plus we were close to all the main facilities. Superb! Nice spacious rooms, good size towels, decent lighting. The Christmas dispay in the lobby was breathtaking. Staff all helpful and friendly and it was great to be just across from the pedestrianised walk-way to the beach. On the negative side the sunbeds were rather tired and there was a lack of seating areas in the sunlight at this time of year. I don't know why the decking area of the outside dining area isn't utilised for this in the winter months. We were also confused about the Blue Horizon Bar which appeared to be part of the hotel with open access to guests. One day we were allowed to sit there with our drinks (at a table in the sun) and another day we were told we couldn't. I didn't see any information regarding accessibilty. This would save confusion and embarrassment on both sides should it be clearly available to all. The major down side to our stay was the food. Very disappointing in choice but, worst of all, served on cold plates at luke warm temperature. Even the best quality food (which it wasn't) would be spoiled when served this way. I don't understand why they don't have plate stacker warmers! Christmas day was an especial let down as there wasn't even a carved turkey but a stuffed type of turkey formed meat-loaf. Yes,other options were available but as most guests appearred to be British or Irish I think this was a mistake and, in my opinion, the food dragged this hotel down from 4* to a good 3*.. This was my second stay in 2 months to an allegedly 4* hotel in the Puerto Del Carmen region and I only wish that I could find a third hotel that combined the best of both and would then deserve the status of 4 or even a 5*. Wishful thinking maybe?
Nice Hotel food is good breakfast is okay usual menu plus cava. Building work going on to the rear of the hotel but not really noticeable or annoying. For the amount of rooms the outside space is very limited,if the hotel was full it could be a problem. Location is good, it takes about an hour to walk to Puerto del Carmen along the promenade with plenty of places to stop for a little drink or something to eat Carmen is very busy but nice. Looking forward to the New Year’s Eve dinner. Entertainment not brilliant but hey ho. Watch this space will update you later.
