Had a fantastic holiday at the end of June and the hotel was mostly OK. Clean public areas and large rooms. A double bed is two singles pushed together and the beds are quite hard. We had a kitchenette in our room, which was good for keeping water cold in the fridge but there was no crockery/cutlery so you can't cook anything. The all inclusive food was a bit hit and miss. One evening I was served raw chicken from the show chef - it wasn't just a bit pink in the middle, it was completely raw inside. The Canarian potatoes (though far too salty some days) were nice, as were the Canarian red and green sauces. The main restaurant is in a really low ceilinged room in the basement, with no windows so it's not really got a nice holiday atmosphere. We missed out on both the themed nights because they were the 1st and 2nd nights we were there and both fully booked already.
The pool is a good size and there's never too many people in it (it is a bit cool). Although all of the hotel literature said they would not allow people to reserve sunbeds with towels, there was absolutely noone stopping people doing this. And it was ridiculous. On our second morning we got up just before 7am to go on a day trip, looked out of the window and quite a few people had already put towels down. By breakfast time, it was impossible to find two free sunbeds together. Very frustrating as most people wouldn't occupy them until about lunchtime, when it started to get hot. We took to going out in the days and coming back around 4-5. By then you could usually get a sunbed and enjoy the last hours of sunshine. Would definitely recommend hiring a car, you can see all of the island that way.
The beach is really close, just out of the back gate. And there are cafes and restaurants with free wifi. We tried windsurfing on the last day and really enjoyed it. Make sure you ask the front desk staff about a shower room on the last day if you have an evening flight. Noone seemed to know about them so we were able to get one for 30mins just before our transfer, which was great and allowed us to make the most of our last day. Our Thomsons rep told us that the hotel had no courtesy room or shower facilities, but they do, you just have to ask on the morning of your last day.
Overall it was a decent place to base ourselves for a great holiday. The all inclusive drinks choice is a lot wider than other all inclusive places I've been to and everything is clean and well maintained. We wouldn't come back, but that's because Lanzarote is a fairly small island and we feel like we've seen enough of it now that we'd run out of things to do if we every went back. Very enjoyable week though.
