We have just returned yesterday from the Sol apartments after spending a week there.The Sol is very clean, comfortable, and within walking distance to the square, the beach,and shops.The beds are very comfortable,the kitchen is well equipt with kettle toaster hob microwave, and coffee maker, so we did cook a few meals there,and enjoyed eating outside on the spacious patio! There are bars on your doorstep,our favourite being Cactus Jacks!They do a great range of food and everynight entertainment! No need for taxis or buses as these apartments are in an ideal place and are great for couples and families. We are hoping to return there again in late september!

Room Tip: All rooms are exactly the same size, and have nice views, either pool or gardens.All are quiet,as th...

Stayed in the Sol Apartments for 4 night in may 2013. The room living area was large with a kitchen including toaster, kettle, hobs and a microwave. There was a dining table which sat 4 people, a large tv, and a sofa bed. The bedroom has 2 single beds which were the comfiest beds I've ever slept in abroad. The bathroom was average, the only bad thing I have to say is the shower! It kept running out of hot water.

We spent a week here in march for a cheap relaxing getaway and it was perfect. Its a smallish complex, the apartments are a very good size and have all the equipment you need if you want to cook and drink. I think we stayed in the same apartment as another reviewer which was next to reception on the bottom floor but never felt unsafe of overlooked.
The beds were new and apartments cleaned every other day.
Its just outside the main area of Teguise but its only a 10 minute walk away. Its a lovely quiet place and has a pool bar/food place that opens 12-4. There are some bar areas close by but its not too loud.
The pool is quite small and a little on the cool side but ok for a quick dip.
If you fancy a nice quiet getaway then this is a great place to go get one. I'd return back here again.

Stayed from Jan 10 to 24. The accommodation was basic with some minor irritations - which were fixable as long you weren't fussed about 'stuff' not being ideal.

For example, the furniture, crockery and cutlery were minimal. We bought 2 large mugs for tea and coffee as the cups supplied were too small. We moved 2 of the plastic chairs from the balcony so we had somewhere to put clothes on in the bedroom. We moved a kitchen chair to become a bedside table as there was only one of those.

The couch and one arm chair in the living room were not that comfy so we sat outside on the balcony more - which you would expect anyway - although we weren't in much during the day.

The king bed was 2 singles put together with a thin single mattress on top. Not ideal but it was OK. The shower was a handheld job that you put in a slot on the wall. The pressure was minimal and it was difficult to get the right temperature - but enough to get wet.

Internet access was unreliable and depended on time of day.

We had an upper apartment in a corner which didn't get the sun until late morning/midday. I suspect each apartment has its own pluses and minuses in terms of location - for sun and ease of access. We did think of asking to be moved but decided against it.

On the plus side the staff were friendly and helpful, the apartment was cleaned every other day and there was an excellent lunch by the pool each day. There was also an excellent Spar shop in the small 'seen better days' shopping plaza nearby so getting food, including fresh bread each day and incredibly cheap wine and beer, was no problem.

The winds made it feel colder than it was and swimming in the unheated outdoor pool was not really feasible in January. We weren't there in the afternoons had we wanted to try to swim when the weather was most likely to be warmest.

For those who missed home (we didn't) there was the slightly tatty Swan 'pub' across the road with Sky Sports. Didn't see the point of coming all that way to do what we could do at home. However, you have to pay extra to get English TV in the hotel. Not sure what channels were available as we decided not to bother.

Having said all that, we kind of enjoyed our stay there. We got used to the inconvenient 'stuff' and the price was right and, by the second week with a car we were able to explore the delights of Lanzerote, especially the Cesar Manrique places (he is responsible, too, for all buildings being white and low level and also for there being no excessive billboard advertising).

If you go to Lanzerote do yourself a favour and visit the places he contructed (I will review some of them separately) and not just sit by a pool. The coastal walks are good too. Hence, we were happy to have a 'nothing fancy', basic place to eat and sleep in, once we got back from our outings.

If you think you might be like us... then it will suit you fine.

Room Tip: Check where the sun is relative to your room. Do you want walk-out access to the pool? Is the layout...

We stayed at the sol apartments over christmas and they were exactly right for our stay.Our apartment was equipped with most of the self catering items we needed and the rooms were clean with a patio outside the front.The swimming pool is small but the poolside area is quite private and there is a bar that also serves meals by the staff who were all friendly.The location of the sol is very good because you have about a dozen or so bars on your doorstep but you don't hear much noise at night.Also the beach and the shops on the main strip are only a five to ten minute walk away so this was handy for buying food,but there is a supermarket about 50 metres away from the apartments.To sum up the sol apartments they were good,basic,value for money apartments close to most of the ammenities,and if i was to go to lanzarote again i would probably stay here again.

Simple accommodation but with everything you need provided. Clean apartment, serviced every other day with clean towels and bedding. About 10 minutes away from the beach and restaurants, bars and shops. Swimming pool on the cool side! Apartments are in a rather scruffy area of Costa Teguise. Pool-side bar available 12.00 noon till 4.00.pm serves drinks and snacks - good value for money especially during Happy Hour from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. Would not hesitate to use again and would recommend to friends and family.
