Reviewed 29 August 2013

spent 10 nights at this hotel .found the food OK need to get better bacon and sausages , the pool is OK if they where at the right depth , they topped it up while we were there. room was OK if door on to balcony worked rights could not close it had to leave it on vent all the time ( room 337 ).
the entertainment at night is a bit hit or miss ,but the team do try there best with a limited budget, the girl alba is great and sol and mili are ok , all the hotel staff were friendly and helpful.what made the holiday was the people we met ,marc ,sarah and leah (from derby), Raphael and lydia , Ruben and Eva ( from spain ). overall if the hotel spent a bit more money and fixied all the small faults it would make this a great hotel, a curtsy bus to the town center and beach would help too

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your comments and for choosing Diverhotel Playaverde as your holiday residence. Your views about the hotel services will help us to improve.
Bacon and sausages are served daily for breakfast. They are freshly bought in the island. We will keep an eye in the way of cooking them to check it is been done correctly. The design of the swimming pool imitates a beach. It gets deeper as you enter into it.
Despite the small faults founded, all the staff is pleased that you have enjoyed your holidays and hope to welcoming you again.
We stay at your entire disposal.

Yours sincerely,

Lena Concepción Ramirez – Manager Diverhotel Playaverde

My partner and I returned from a week staying in the Playaverde Hotel in Costa Teguise last Wednesday and I have got to say, we had the most wonderful holiday!

If you’re not overly anal about things then this hotel is great. When we first arrived we were famished and the first thing we noticed were the pastries and sandwiches available to the hotel guests in between meals in the front bar. When entering our room, we found everything we needed such as a clean room with fresh linen, towels and toiletries. The room may have needed a slight modernisation but this is something that really didn’t bother us.
We had plenty of space to hang our clothes and the room had a safe and a fridge. Our balcony over looked a vast amount of palm trees and a lovely pool and beyond that, we got a view of the sea on the horizon.

There is a kids pool, a pool for the 3 slides, a main pool with waterfalls and water pipes spraying water, hot Jacuzzi pool and a larger cooler Jacuzzi. Throughout the day, staff run activities in the pool such as a pool dance and volley ball but they also do other activities through the day throughout the hotel such as shooting and archery. The staffs are absolutely brilliant and most walk around smiling, full of enthusiasm.

Our first day was spent venturing around the area to see what it had to offer and found we were able to walk along the sea front within 10 minutes using the back gate of the hotel through the mini golf area. We managed to get ourselves booked on a few excursions for the week in the ‘lastminute’ excursion office which is a bit future down the road from the turning to the beach.

To get to the nearest beach is about 15 minutes walk but there are some gorgeous yellow sand beaches a little bit further (maybe 20-25mins) which you must visit! The sea is so clear you can even see the fish.
Beyond these yellow beaches is the town of Costa Teguise which is jam packed with restaurants, bars and shops including a night club or two.

The food at our hotel was brilliant! There is something for everyone and my very fussy partner enjoyed plateful after plateful all week. There is a grill area where you can go and get fresh food cooked in front of you while you wait such as pizza, grilled chicken, steaks, sea bass, paella, omelette and other various dished but not forgetting freshly made crepes/pancakes with a variety of toppings.
In the main section of the restaurant, there is always fresh salad, cheeses and cold meats. In the hot section there’s something different every night from hunters chicken and beef stew to white fish in sauce and curried vegetables but always plenty of choice for the fussy eater.
In the mornings the breakfast selection is vast again from full English to croissants and cereal and fruit. The only thing lacking in the full English section are proper sausages as these are substituted with hotdog sausages.
One huge down fall for me was the evening entertainment. To be completely honest for couples or groups of friends without kids, the evening entertainment is rubbish. It involves handing out the certificates from the day time activities followed by dancing for the kids or maybe a competition where a few guests will get on the stage and take part in some kind of game. All evening entertainment is finished by 11pm.
My partner and I AND many other couples we spoke too all thought it was dreadful and on occasions we left the hotel on an evening to go to Costa Teguise where we enjoyed the nightlife.

If you get to book excursions, you must book ‘the grand tour’ – it is absolutely brilliant and you get to see some amazing things that you’ll never forget. And if you like looking round markets then go to the Teguise Sunday market (4 Euros return when you book with lastminute) there are 600+ stalls that sell just about anything and you get really get a bargain. Always haggle. We managed to get a bag priced at 25euros down to 11euros so you must be stubborn to get yourself a deal!

All in all, we had an absolutely brilliant holiday and although the location was a bit of a walk to most places, we still thought the hotel was lovely. If the entertainment on an evening was changed and there was more for the adults and extended to maybe 12:30am then we would without most definitely return.

Dear guest,
Thank you for sharing your experience with us and for the time spent in your wide comments about the Diverhotel Playaverde.
I feel glad about the experience that you will keep of your holidays at Diverhotel Playaverde. Guests satisfaction is our main goal.
The hotel chain Playa Senator has three hotel lines: Senator hotels, located in big cities, Playa hotels in the coastline of Andalusia and Canaries, and Diverhotels, a new all inclusive line specialized in families with small children. For this reason, our entertainment is mainly focused in this public. Eventhough, we appreciate your vision and will study improvements in this sense. The evening entertainment starts with a minidisco for the youngest ones at 9:30 pm. At 10 pm we offer entertainment for adults, including external shows as magicians, dance shows, circus, flamenco...
The whole Playaverde team is at your disposal and we hope to see you again.

Yours sincerely,

Lena Concepción Ramírez – Manager Diverhotel Playaverde

I have just returned home from 10nights at playaverde hotel. 14th-24th. I don't really understand how people can co main so much about this hotel, its great okay some wasted space but it doesn't cause any problems. There are not any parasols as it is too windy to out them up and would just cause arguments.

The sunbeds isn't a problem unless you wanna come down at lunch time then you probably won't get one but that's expected anywhere. We didn't have a problem any of the days we was there.

There are a few bars and restaurants about 5min walk from the hotel (use back door). Or you ca go into teguise yes it's a bit of a walk but for 3euros you may aswell get a taxi which the hotel would be more than happy to arrange for you.

Food was okay. There's pizza pasta and carbonara every night aswell everything else.

All in all a great family holiday no problems at all. Entertainment could be better. But a holiday is what you make of it.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comments as they are our main tool to improve each day.
The Palm Trees area is an icon in our hotel, designed to have natural shade when you lay on a sun bed. Palm trees have been recently loped and for this reason there is not enough shade, but there will be soon. There is a playground in the play area of the hotel, where the miniclub is.
Regarding the sunbeds problem, we put as many as possible around the swimming pool and try our best to have one for every guest, eventhough sometimes it is impossible due to the lack of room.
Once again, thank you for your comments.
Yours sincerely,
Lena Concepción – Manager Diverhotel Playaverde

Bargain hotel for the price. Really clean, the pool could have been filtered better, sand was on the floor etc..

the food i cannot complain about. Easily the best food i have ever had abroad. Wide range every day with freshly cooked steak, chicken and omelettes to order. My 7 yr old didn't have a problem eating!

room was clean, we was on the ground floor near the pool. Noisy at night so if you want peace or early night request a room away from the entertainment.

entertainment were great. They made an effort with everyone and if you make the effort to join in you wont be disappointed. Excellent stuff.

location was the only down side for me. A taxi ride (4 euro) from the beach. We travelled to different towns and the others seemed alot more bustling than teguise. The night life was nice though and some nice cocktail bars and markets (wed and Fri). Some nice beaches, ask for the best ones as there is a few.

trips i recommend are definitely the submarine tour. Brilliant fun and kids loved it.
short volcano south tour was interesting and they did some experiments which the kids enjoyed. Don't recommend for younger children or kids with short attention spans.
we took the water bus one day, and for 4 euro each it was soooooo fun! A little tip, don't sit at the top, you are allowed to sit at the very front of the boat... Be prepared to get very wet though!

all in all a good holiday. Wouldn't go back to lanzarote myself as i like a more lushous landscape but glad we went.

Dear Guest,

We appreciate your comments about Diverhotel Playaverde. Playa Senator has city hotels (Senator brand), beach hotels (Playa Hoteles), and hotels specialized in families (Diverhotels), with more children facilities and entertainment. For this reason, you will find nearly everything you may need for your child and will have no problems for feeding him/her or for entertainment.
Eventhough the hotel is located in North-East coast of the island, its location is ideal for visiting touristic places of the island as it has a strategic location.
Once again, thanks for your comments.

Yours sincerely,
Lena Concepción – Manager Diverhotel Playaverde

We had a lovely stay here for a week, we went all inclusive and couldn't ask for more. It was a bit of a walk to the beach so we just ended up getting taxis especially when you have little ones. I think they should have a policy on sun beds because people left towels out from early hours in the morning till 7pm when they have been out all day. But overall experience was great would go again.

Dear Guest,
As the manager of the Diverhotel Playaverde, I must say thank you for your comments. The pool rules stipulate that it is forbidden to reserve sun beds with the towel. Nevertheless, I will try my best to find a solution regarding this issue.
I am looking forward to welcoming you again.

At the resort at the moment only problem but you have to reserve a sun bed with a towel to get a bed at crack of dawn when the people go out for the day and return then don't use the beds every thing great in every way room 143 would be five star apart from the beds
