“Ok apartments”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Stayed here for a week. Had checked out previous reveiws and thought they would be good. I would say that the apartments are ok. They are spacious and probably could be doing with being up graded, although they are only 2 star. The crockery and cutlery could be doing with being replaced as a number of the dishes had been chipped. We were lucky to have an oven in our apartment. We had problems with the shower, in that the hot water did not last any length of time. We did report it but they only did something with the shower head, we spoke to a member of stay who put it down to everyone having a shower at the same time!!!! Also we only had the apartment cleaned on once during our stay. I think it might have been the cleaning staff did not appear to have a key to our apartment as the once it was cleaned we were sitting outside enjoying the sun. We did get a change of towels regularly but the would leave them outside the apartment so by the end of the week we had a number of towels as they did not take away the dirty ones.
We had no problems getting a sunbed at the pool as the apartments were not full. The restuarant at the apartments is good to eat. The quality and quantity good, canarian potatoes great with garlic mayo and mojo sauce. The apartments are about 5 minutes away from the shopping centre where there are plenty of restaurant to choose from, the mexican is good, also a number of bars there,not a lot of shops. You can walk to Puerto del Carmen but it will take you a good hour to get to the shopping. Would recommend taking the bus and walking back. There is a nice walk to Playa Honda which takes you along past the airport.

Would go back San Marcial, however this is the 3rd we have been in Lanzarote in January where the weather has not been good, so will give it a miss for a number of years!!

Room Tip: Apartments 139 and 142 get the sun from early morning until early evening.

stayed here in jan 14, for 5 days.I found the apts very big,and of fairly good quality. I read the other reviews and my towels got changed twice in 5 days and cleaned. The supermrket was nice to have, the prices were reasonable. I didnt use the restaurant.
The pool area has to be the best feature of the apts.

I have been to Matagorda many times and love it there, its very chilled with only PDC close by.

Room Tip: ask for a 1st floor room facing the Beatriz Hotel, you will get sun all day

Just home from two weeks at San Marcial booked here as las gaviatos was full bit nervous at first after reading previous reviews and can understand how people can review the apts so poorly.the down side of the apts are the poor maintenance internally ,inside our bathroom was full of black mould on the ceiling walls and tlies the sofa beds are tatty and stained and everything was just of a poor standard.the positives are a great pool area with lovely reception staff who will do all they can to help you.although the apts were poor we had a fab holiday and we met some great people and dean the rep was lovely .matagorda is a lovely resort and can't wait to return just not to here.

If anyone is thinking of going to theese apps,the apps are in Matagorda about 1 hour walk into carmen or between 5 to 6 euro in a taxi and 2 euro on the bus. If you stay in Matagorda at night you have one shopping centre to go to for drinks and meals. 90% of the bars do Irish entertainment, after 2 weeks it would have been to much, it was like going to Dublin,so we had had 1 night in Mat then the next in Carmen.The san marcial is nice, good breakfast and big apps,but it could be very nice and probably 4 star if you got towels and bed change more then once a week, after 8th day we had to ask them to change towels&bed.The repp Dean said, most people was asking him about the same thing.I would only go back if you got things change more often

It is a shame the apt. is so basic as the complex has a good lay out with nice pool. The restaurant is excellent with great friendly staff. The reception charge for wifi but the restaurant has wifi available free of charge. Our black out curtains were only fit to be thrown out as they were in shreds. The towels were so old and worn, should also be thrown out. The beds were very uncomfortable . The apt in general needed a complete make over. Location is good just a short walk to the beach, bars & restaurants. Lovely area but would not stay at these apts. again.

We stayed here in jan 14, room 102. the rooms were basic but clean. Quite spacious. Our room had twin beds which we didn't like. There was plenty of wardrobe space. The safe you had to pay for and it's large. The bathrooms seemed to have new sinks, toilets and showers and a lick of paint. The shower door was broken but was still usable. The kitchen/living room was large with a big breakfast bar, fridge, electric hob, microwave, kettle & toaster. All in good condition. You had to pay for the remote control for the tv which you got back with the deposit of the safe. Balcony was nice. The pool area was lovely and the bar/restaurant was excellent opened 10-02:00! On site supermarket again very good and was open 8-22:00! It's not very good if you have mobility issues, lots of steps. There are ramps but they are steep! The only thing that let it down was the towels were old, some with holes! Also it states there is an iron but the reception said they couldn't find it! The complex was very nice and we were surprised really. It's a short walk from the main of matagorda and it's close to the beach. We also went to the Beatriz playa spa next door and had a morning in their hydrotherapy/Turkish baths it was around 24 euros each but really nice. The airport is next door and for some reason the coach transfer took us 50 mins as he dropped everyone else off first in puerto del Carmen! 5 mins on the way back to the airport! I think a taxi from outside the airport would be better it's 2miles or so!
