We booked the shuttle bus and it took 2 hours from landing to walking into the Oceano.This was because we were sat on the bus waiting for other peoples flights to land that were booked on the shuttle with us.Shuttle is cheaper than a taxi but it will be a taxi if we go back to Lanzarote.
When we arrived we were greeted by a french man.He gave us our key and i asked if the room was quiet.He said yes.When we got up to the room it smelt of cooked food and there was music full blast from a bar below.We went straight back to the french man and asked for another room.He said there was nothing wrong with the room he had given us.I asked him if he had lived in that room for 2 weeks and he told me not to rase my voice as he could help me but he could not help me aswell.We were given another room 200.Top floor overlooking a music square.Granted we had a sea and mountain view and if you dont wont to go out on a night looking for entertainment all you had to do was sit on your balcany and listen to the blasting music from 7pm-1am every night.By the end of our first week i had had enough.We were given room 2 and wished we had got that one for the 2 weeks.We had our own sun beds and a garden with table and chairs and it was prity quiet.No view but didnt bother us after what we had put up with for a week.The apartments are all the same.Our shower head holder in number 200 was broke a new one was put on straight away.We hired the tv ie 3 euro for 22 hours.You get a card to put in the side of the tv from reception and there was a good few chanels for us brits.
the apartments were 2 star no more than that.We paid £305 for the room for 2 weeks.Towels were thin some with holes in.The bedding was clean and changed often but why put a duvet on a bed when it's 88deg.Very strange.I asked at reception if they had tea towels and they said no so i went out and bought 2 and when i got back there was a tea towel in our room.I counted 14 sunbeds round the pool with towels on and no one there.That was 10.30 am Sunday and market day.Say no more.Only used the pool bar once for a meal very good value and a great cup of tea.Nellie in reception was great.We got a room on the day we left for 30mins to shower and change.There was 3 times to pick from and it was free.Leaving day out of your room by 12 noon.
A bad start to the holiday but a good finish.I will not be going back to The Oceano.It's a place you eather love or hate.I am in between.Costa Teguise is a great place but not for a beach holiday as the wind throws all the sand over you.The wind needs to be there when it's 88deg.no mozzy's at all so that was great.Had one day of rain but just walked round in it because the sun was out and we soon got dried off.Went to the Lighthouse for a meal and was given fried peppers as a veg.A veg that is an aquiered tast i think.The grilled chicken was cold and dry and the fried potaoes was cold.I asked for the peppers to be changed and 20 mins later i was brought hard cold peas and hard cold carrots that had been fozen.I was asked if the meal was ok so i told her.SHE DIDNT LIKE IT AND I DIDNT LIKE PAYING 9 EURO FOR IT.How someone can justifie chargeing for rubbish like that i will never know.The best meal i had was in the Jumbo chinese buffet 4.50 Euro.Everything clean and hot food.No comparison.Spar supermarkets all over the place but the Hipo is cheaper.Buses to Puerto Del Carmen are good and cost 5.80Euro one way for 2 people.Market day in Costa Teguise is Sunday and you can book at a travel shop for 4Euro return.You get 3 times to pick from for pick up and get 4 hours there.The pickup is just over the road from the Oceano.
We are going back to Costa Teguise next March but this time to Club Sirocco.I will write my next review on this place when i get back.I try to be fair with my reviews and say it like it is.Anyone who thinks differant to me about The Oceano then that is there opinian and that is what this sight is all about.Anyone going to The Oceano should think 2 star and they will get what no more than that.
