I have stayed in this apartment complex many times and am returning again in a few weeks. As said by others the apartments are basic and probably a little dated but this is a lovely complex, the staff are brilliant, can't do enough to help you, the food is excellent and very reasonable, a lovely pool and sunbathing area, a very convenient supermarket on site, and great views from the apartments. The airport is less than 10 minutes away, €10 approx in a taxi, the planes glide quietly and gently in over the Beatriz (just opposite the apartments), a novelty, but no hassle.
The promenade is about 2 minutes away, you can walk to the right to Puerto Del Carmen (1.25 hours to the old town), or to the left, along by the airport, through Playa Honda to the capital Arecife (1.5 hours to the centre of Arecife). This is a most beautiful walk, all paved and all along the seafront, where would you get it, it's magnificent. Bikes can be hired (cheaply) in the commercial centre, Lanzarote is a fantastic place to cycle ( from the beginner right up to the Sean Kellys), if you hire the bike for 3 days they don't have to be consecutive days which is very handy.
The Commercial Centre is the place to go for the restaurants and pubs, good choice of both. My favourite restaurant is the Matagorda, but there is a great choice of restaurants (Chinese, Japanese etc), you won't be left hungry. Finish off with some light refreshments in The First and Last with John C, or with Dave in the Auld Triangle, a bit of a sing along (you can even have a go yourself) and a bit of craic. Pay a visit to Dolores in Peggys Snug as well, upstairs in the Commercial Centre.
Highly recommended - looking forward to revisiting as I look out on this dull dank day!
