Great value winter sun
2
people found this review helpful

Just had a superb week in Puerto del Carmen - fab weather, good restaurants and the 'bonus' of enjoying some great craic with the Irish, who were celebrating their Six Nations triumph and 'Paddy's' Weekend.
The apartment was very satisfactory - spacious, well equipped, comfortable and clean. It has a large sun terrace (sun all day!) which is literally a few steps away from a large communal pool and extensive pool terrace - all very well maintained and spotlessly clean.
The elevated position of the apartment means there is a bit of a sea view too.
On arrival we were welcomed by the owner's local rep, Sally, who was extremely pleasant and showed us round, making sure we had all relevant info/details etc. We didn't have any issues with the apartment during our stay but feel confident that Sally would have dealt, swiftly and efficiently, with any that had arisen. It's always comforting to know there is a useful local contact should you need it.
The complex in which the apartment is situated could perhaps benefit from having a greater percentage of occupied properties - quite a lot of apartments are currently empty - but the upside is that the complex is quiet and peaceful and we had the pool to ourselves most of the time.
Overall a very enjoyable and good value week.

Peaceful location and idyllic poolside - we felt like V.I.Ps!

My 3 friends and I (all mid twenties) stayed here for 1 week during the October Holidays 2013. We had a fantastic time. We were not sure what to expect when we booked as the total cost was cheap and cheerful however, we found that it was excellent value for money. The pre-holiday information sent to us by the owner was very informative and had all the details we required to get ourselves to/into the villa.

The Villa

The villa itself is situated roughly 10 minutes from the airport. We got a taxi from straight outside the airport (it was not pre-booked). It cost roughly €15 (with a tip). The villa is on private grounds and has gated entry. The taxi driver we had was not keen to go through the vehicle entry gates (even though they are allowed to) and we had to walk from the taxi up the hill to the villa. I would recommend you take a suitcase on wheels incase this happens to you too! The walk to the villa is not too daunting (it only took us about 3 minutes) and is something you get used to during your stay.

We were very pleased when we arrived outside the apartment. We were met by the cleaner, who was very friendly and also British. She explained to us how the keysafe worked and suggested places we went to eat during our holiday. The apartment is clean and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. It also has a working TV with UKTV channels. We used the TV to watch "The Chase" on ITV everyday when we had had too much of the sun! The bedrooms were comfortable and the bedding was clean. There are spare sheets and covers in the cupboard incase you need them too. The bathroom was also fine- I was impressed that all 4 of us could have a shower and the water was always hot!

The poolside was idyllic. The swimming pool is a great size and has a nice shallow end (that you can sit in with your back against the jets coming out the wall) and also a great deep end (excellent for those of us who like jumping in). There are lots of parasols and sun loungers around the outside of the pool that are available to use. The vast majority of the time we felt like we had a private pool as we were lucky enough to be the only ones using it.

The location of the villa is great for exploring Lanzarote. It is situated in the old town with walking distance to the local supermarket and the restaurants. Every morning, we went for our breakfast at THE PURPLE TURTLE which I would highly recommend. The food was great and the people who work there are very friendly. The villa is also a short and cheap taxi drive to the new town of Lanzarote which is more commercialised. It is in the new town that you will find great karaoke, bingo and a range of shops and places to eat. We found both the old and new town reasonably priced for food and drink and both offer a different type of atmosphere which will suit everyone.

We had a fantastic holiday at the Loma Verde and would definitely go back.

Tired and worn out apartment on a tired and worn out site

person found this review helpful

I don't know when the description for this apartment was written or when the owner last visited but the description bears little resemblance to the reality. It may have been accurate 6 or 7 years ago but the condition of the apartment is very poor. Superficially the apartment looks clean with clean floors, bedding and bathroom but when you spend any time in the apartment you find that it is generally quite worn and grimy.
What is described as the second bedroom is more like a corridor leading to a storeroom and this area is dark and dingy and has problems with damp with mold evident along the top of the rear wall. There are bunk beds in this area presumably for children. I would not allow children to sleep in this room.
A travel cot is also in this room for a baby. No chance.
The bed linen was threadbare and bobbled and I chose not to look at the mattress fearing what I might find.
There are many maintenance issues. Many lights not working, including the terrace light which is a concern when you return in the dark. The lounge ceiling fan does not work. DVD not working, toilet continually running on overflow which is a real problem as it is quite noisy, particularly through the night when trying to sleep. Smoke alarms not working.
The apartment was advertised as having UK TV channels. This service was very unreliable and we had no UKTV for most of our 2 week stay. The Wifi signal comes from a neighbouring site and the signal is so poor that I could not get online on any occasion. Fortunately most local bars provide Wifi.
Loma Verde has seen better days and despite reports that it is improving, it has a long way to go. The swimming pool was closed and according to fellow guests has been for over 2 months. The road and foot paths are crumbling and in poor condition. More than half of the apartments are empty and in a total state of disrepair and gives the feeling of being in a ghost village.
One important thing to consider is when we were dropped off at the main gates, we had to pull our luggage over 400 yards up a very steep incline to get to our apartment number [--]. The beach and harbor areas where most of the amenities located are a further half mile down a very steep hill. OK on the way down but on return is a challenging 3/4 mile climb back to the apartment. Totally inappropriate for anyone with walking or health issues.
Apartment [--] is in need of a total deep clean, redecoration and refurbishment and Loma Verde badly needs modernisation to a condition to attract holiday makers.

I as the owner disagree this customer complained from day one, my apartment is spotless, the Sky TV went down on the whole island, our pool was being resurfaced and now normal, his wife couldn't watch soaps, all my bedding is new, some guests you cannot keep happy, check out my other review one week previous to this one, very unfair comments. Feb 23 yr 2014.TV being checked out with new company provider.
