“Excellent Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2008

We booked the holiday through a travel agent, neither of us had been to Lanzarote before and we were looking for a relaxing break in the sun.

After reading the reviews on the hotel i was really anxious and worried about where we were staying but we had absolutely nothing to complain about. The room was cleaned on a daily basis and the sea view balcony was amazing especially the sunrise and sunset. There were no cockroaches in our room at all.

The pool although cold was perfect for sunbathing by and we had no problem getting a sunbed any time of the time. We spent the majority of the time on a small man made beach just down the road from the hotel which was beautiful and the water was unbelievably clear.

The volcano tour and wine tasting excursion was fun and the market on the Sunday was excellent - best place for picking up gifts to bring home.

We found lots of lovely restaurants but would definately recommend El Patio - the lemon sole was out of this world.

We were looking for a relaxing break for a young couple and that's exactly what we got. And for the price i don't see how anyone can complain.

After reading the reviews i prepared for the worst, but I need not have worried it was nt as bad as all that!. We were greeted with drinks on arrival which turned out to be in connection with a small timeshare, the couple who were promoting this were lovely and didnt pressurise us.

We found the rooms to be of a good basic standard although the kitchenette was very small and we had to ask for utensils that were missing. Rooms were cleaned every other day. We did hear that the blocks overlooking the sea had a cockroach problem but fortunetly we didnt see any. Entertainment staff worked their butts off and I found the staff in general friendly. The pool is totally freezing!!! The poolside area is kept very clean and there is the usual fight for the sun beds early morning.

There are a good number of restaurant and bars surroundiing the resort ,(never seen so many chinese restaurants in one place of spain), although this didnt prove noisy as the hotel sits in a cul-de-sac away from the main road.

The beach was 2mins walk away and I have to admit not safe for young kids or non swimmers the sea is very rough. There is a small cove at the opposite of the end of the resort with rockpools this is far more suited for children.

All in all not a bad holiday, an ok place to go if you just want to eat out and beach it etc. i did find that there was nt really anything to go and see, we were told by many that the waterpark is rubbish, in a bad state of repair and not worth the money so we never bothered. we were told that the market was not very good either so we were ready to go after our week ,would nt like a fortnight there, not enough to do.

Stayed July 2008

We booked this holiday back in April, and did some research into the hotel. We were quite nervous given all the bad feedback on creepies and poor standards, but we needn't have worried.

Yes, there was one block that had a problem with cockroaches, but it had been closed down completely until it was clear, and we only saw one cockroach the whole time we were there, late at night by the pool. As the complex is closing at the end of September for a refurbishment until June 09, I doubt it would have been on their priority list, as long as no guests were suffering.

Check in was quick and efficient, and we found ourselves with an apartment on the top floor with a fantastic sea view (we only booked a studio, so it was a nice upgrade). The apartment was clean but it was clear it could do with a lick of paint, but that didn't bother us - we weren't there to sit in the apartment. The kitchen was basic - we had fridge, hob, toaster, kettle and microwave. Great for doing your own breakfast, and keeping drinks cold, but we didn't eat in any other meals. But that was never part of the plan - who wants to cook on holiday??

We were directly above the waterfront pub - part of a strip including 4 or 5 English and Irish bars - which bothered me a bit in case of noise, but we didn't hear a thing.

We had a fantastic time, the resort was just what I expected. I've travelled a lot on the Spanish mainland, but this was the first time to the Canaries, and I will definitely go back.

We spent a small fortune on excursions, but they were all worth it, the guides were great, and I thoroughly recommend the Catlanza excursion from Puerto Calero (they have a coach which picks you up free from Costa Teguise) we had an absolute ball on the boat, and the snorkelling and jetski were great fun, and a great adrenaline rush.

I don't know what their plans are for the refurb of the complex, but I would certainly recommend it - the location is perfect, with a back door down onto the promenade at the end of Cucharas beach. Everything is close by.

For a good laugh, I would say go to the Bulldog pub - the entertainment there in the evening is great, and if you like vodka, ask for a double - it comes in a pint glass - half of the glass being filled with vodka and the rest being mixer. Not one for the faint hearted!! We will go back at some point, but since we have covered most of the main excursions, we probably wouldn't go for as long next time.

This hotel is a haven for cockroaches and got worse the longer we stopped there! The hotel was very dirty and lacked atmoshere. We were promised a buffet restaurant and a gym but both had been closed for a long time. The sunbed reservations really drove me up the wall as i have to get up at 6.00 every day for work did not expect to have to do this during my holiday just to get a sunbed. What really drove me mad was some people put towels on and would not use the beds all day.
On the plus side we had no problems with the maids, they tried to keep everything clean.

We had a good relaxing holiday at puerto Tahiche! Had to get up really early in the morning to get your towel down to get a sunbed. The rooms a bit basic. We had a fantastic sea view from our room. A lot of people were complaining about cockroaches, we had some ants in our room, but not too bad. But hey! you only get what you pay for!

we arrived at the puerto tahiche on the 17th of aug,a family of 4 2 adults 2 small children in which 1 was in a pushchair,we had requested a ground floor.they gave us the the keys to what was a top floor,i went to reception to change rooms they said they had none but within in 2 mins they gave us a groundfloor room.We got to our room which a lamanite floor which i have never seen in an aparment b4,it looked very dusty.It came to the the next day kids wanted cereal "self catering rooms" no bowls went to reception the woman was very rude and arrogant,she said they would send someone with some.Still didnt turn up went back an hour later said they wouls still send some never did.We finally got some bowls next day after complaing.The reception staff are really ignorant and unhelpful.Got back to our room one day had a leak,had to wait for engineers to come and chang a water tank! One day the maids came left clean towels didnt change the beds,when i rang reception they said they would send someone yet again,no one turned up what a surprise!The hotel definatly needs a refurb and some new staff,other than that it was situated in a great place couldnt br better,lovely english resturants close by,beach was right in front of our hotel and the weather was lovely.As for cockroaches is wasnt as bad as i thought we had none in our room which was good,we only seen them at night.So wheb u go out be sure to leave all the lights on and you will find you wont get any.The holiday was really good it was just the hotel i wouldnt rate.

Hi after reading some reviews on this hotel i was a little worried but i can honestly say we had a great holiday. The rooms were basic but it never said it was a 5 star they were cleaned everyday apart from one, they are a little bit dated but they are closing this hotel to redecorate in novemeber. The pool area was fantastic for the kids they loved it and the dizzy and shades clubes with Anna Banana and Crazy Clare were great my kids loved them! The resort centre is on your doorstep and has everything you would want. The weather was brill breezy but you needed. We would definitely go back to Lanzarote in the future and would stay here again. Your holiday is what you make it!!!!
