“Shabby but clean”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

OK, if on a budget but if you can afford better go elsewhere.
Rooms in dire need of renovation. Stained baths, bad doors, poor but solid furniture. Furnishing all peeling and need replaced. Given a face-lift, this could be a good place to say, as it is central for everything.
As it's right on the sea-front, which I always love, it can get just TOO windy. In May, some days were very unpleasant and why the back pool is always empty.
I must commend the cleaners as they kept the place spotless.
No English speaking TV stations, except news. No hairdryer. Two hobs on cooker, microwave, kettle and toaster so that is ample.
Computers at reception and free Wi-fi in pool bar although I saw, on last day, that it could be bought.
Supermarket right across the road and another bigger one a few yards away.
Pool grounds are very well kept.
Blocks at the back 9, 10 and 11 have lifts but the outlook from my room in block 10 was bad although it had a great view of the bay from the bedroom. Too windy to open windows to appreciate it though!
Bar was a good place to meet others but we only went at the end of the night because the bars on the front were better.
For me, the biggest let down was the rooms although mine was very spacious. They were just too poor for me to enjoy and the reason I will not be back and cannot recommend.
I paid £460 for a week's holiday here in early May so not exactly cheap!

Thank you to the holidaymaker who found my jacket in reception and kept it making it a cold journey home for me.

Room Tip: I think block 9 would be best if you need a lift but you won't get a good view from balcony

We arrived late in the evening and on first impression the apartment looked shabby and there was a terrible smell from the wardrobe, but after asking to move we were given a more modernised room with, thankfully, no nasty niff! The staff were very helpful and friendly, and in the light of day with more people around the shabbiness was gone. Some parts of the complex are tired but do let reception know if there is any problem as they are more than happy to help.
The location of the apartments is brilliant and if you want to take any trips further afield I recommend the last minute travel company, and also the atlantic adventure boat trip. Be warned though - don't book through the nasty, unfriendly man in the ticket kiosk outside the complex but go further down near the big spa and book through Bernie at last minute travel.

Room Tip: As i said before ask if you are not happy as we did and were moved straight away

Stayed here for a week with 2 young daughters during Easter holidays. Rooms are spacious and had everything we needed for a relaxing week. The hob was a bit slow to heat up and also there was no light to show if it was on. Pool area was fine, although I think some of the beds could do with being replaced. Excellent location next to the beach and restaurants, would recommend Galeon restaurant just round the corner, do a good set menu for €10. Would definitely consider these apartments if going to Lanzarote in the future

We had a lovely time here. All staff very helpful.
As disabled travelers everything we needed was covered.
Very well placed for eating out, shopping and sightseeing.
Supermarket right facing hotel entrance so that was very handy.

My wife and son who is 11 yrs old stayed here from the 7th April till the 17th April and to be honest was not long enough.the staff at the galeon were 2nd to none, so helpful, pleasant and always friendly to us which put us at ease.the apartments are lovely and clean and very spacious but do need a bit of a make over.they are all that you need on a holiday as you do not spend your time indoors except for dinner, unless you eat at the poolside bar which made lovely food for dinner, all you can ask for.the pool was cleaned daily, the maids cleaned all outdoor first thing.the place was spotless.breakfast was incredible and Olivia was amazing, so happy everyday, helpful and worked her socks off to ensure you enjoyed your breakfast. Breakfast variety was superb , you don't even get that much variety at a hotel in England.cant say enough about the place and staff but what i can say is we are coming back next year with friends and the rest of the family to celebrate our 40th birthday of my wife and myself.cant wait.costa teguise is a lovely place to stay, very safe for kids and adults.food eating out at night is superb with a wide choice of restaurants and bars and has a fantastic atmosphere. Thank you once again galeon playa.see you 2015.Lee, carol and jack.
