San Marcial Apartments
Ranked #42 of 91 Hotels in Puerto Del Carmen
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Recently returned and can't recommend these average apartments enough. Clean and cheerful. Excellent reception staff. We had a problem with an extra night (9). A little misunderstanding left me red faced as they thought we only booked for 8 nights. All sorted without any hassle. The complex itself has been revamped since our last stay, October 2012. However, not too pleased with only one sheet change in 9. It appears they have a cleaning staff shortage. Miguel and Cissy remain on guard in their excellent poolside bar/restaurant serving fantastic food. The pool area always clean. A real friendly atmosphere for singles, couples and families of all ages. I hope the San Marcial remains so. Fantastic.

Room Tip: Rooms 101-116 not too good for the sun; 119-148 sun for most of the day; 150-164, best of all after...

This as the title says was our second visit to these apartments so lets start with the good things.
Short transfer approx 10mins
Clean apartments and faclities
Onsite restaurant very good food and reasonably priced also do carry out
Onsite supermarket a wee bit more expensive than the spar at the commercial centre but very convienent
Wi-fi 15 euros per week with decent coverage.
Staff very helpful .
We had a great break the only downside was the weather which was for the most part was sunny but a very cool wind there is something stange about sitting in the sun with a fleece on .We were in apartment 163 and found the situation of the apartment meant it was difficult to sit on our terrace due to the cool wind and not getting the full sun until mid afternoon.If you were visiting these apartments feel one of the poolside apartments are better you are more protected from the wind.

Room Tip: Rooms 101-110 are poolside

excellent reception staff,moved to balcony room with no problem,room very good,with all essential items for self catering.
onsite shop very reasonable prices.
plenty of sunbeds located around clean pool area.
whole site very clean and cared for.
Location - very close to beach and commercial centre with lots of places to eat and drink.
Beach area a little rocky,but better as you walk a little further along prom,
About 5k from peurto del Carmen,but this is a pleasant walk with places to eat and drink along the way or a taxi will cost about 5 euros.

A really nice few days spent at these apartments. Upon arrival had to pick up my keys from the bar because reception closes between 1.00 pm - 5.00 pm but hey no problem and quick check in then at 5.00 pm when reception opened.
Pleasantly surprised at price of safe hire and also free TV with a number of English language channels, If you can't do without wifi then expensive daily fee, but weekly fee pretty good and free if you use wifi in the bar/restaurant.
Bar/restaurant very reasonably priced and food really pretty good. Nice pool area with plenty of sun beds and a lot of sun umbrellas - pool very clean but very old. Onsite supermarket well stocked and reasonably priced
Apartments them self are a little worn but perfectly acceptable and clean. No air-con and this may be an issue in high summer? Cleaners seem to come every other day and bed linen changed twice a week but again not a problem. Staff very pleasant and helpful.
Location is good, only 5 minutes or so from beach and small commercial centre and both Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen are within walking distance, although would advise bus/taxi one way and walk back. Apartments are very near airport and yes you can hear and see the planes very clearly but you sort of almost forget about them (unless you are particularly offended by them in which case you should give these apartments a miss).
Weather was good but not great - in the sun and out of wind it was hot, but when cloudy and in the wind - brrr!
Would I return - most definitely.

We own a villa, Casa Dasha Lanzarote, which is just up the road from this hotel.
We regularly use the restaurant when we are staying in our villa in winter.
We think the food, service & staff yolly & anna & cissy are very good & the prices are reasonable.
We also use the shop quite a lot as the prices are much better than they have been in the past.

We've just returned from a chilly & windy week in Lanzarote, enjoying sunshine for only two days & even then it was frequently overcast with light showers. So, a huge disappointment weather-wise. We had a 2 bedroom suite at San Marcial. Overall, we found the rooms basic & quite tired (with socks left in the drawers from previous guests!). The crockery was sparse - only one wine glass!. There was never enough hot water for the 3 of us to shower as the hot water ran out half way through the second shower & my husband would have to wait 30 minutes or more for the water to warm up again. The white towels were thin & threadbare & need replacing & we found that although we were left fresh towels a few times, the dirty ones were left in the apartment. I would suggest replacing the sun loungers too as the backs had an annoying habit of springing up! We ate in the restaurant one evening & had also had a few lunches. The service was good but we found the food quite mediocre. Be warned, there is NO business centre with wi-fi as stated on their website, so this claim should be removed. We paid to have wi-fi in our apartment for the week as my daughter had a project to research & needed internet access, but it was worse then useless & our rep managed to negotiate a partial refund. There is separate wi-fi in the bar but we were told by the bar staff that it was for customers only. This was quite understandable, but we didn't want to purchase drinks when we had them in our apartment so this situation could be avoided if wi-fi in the apartments was usable. The apartments are well-situated with a taxi rank a short stroll away & the small commercial centre is nearby with a choice of restaurants if you don't feel like taking the short taxi ride into Puerto del Carmen where the fish restaurants in the old town are superb.

Just home after a long stay at San marcial. In my opinion as some who is a regular visitor to the island and who has stayed in many apartments, I would highly recommend a stay here. Thanks to Danni, Sandra on reception who were always so helpful & thanks to Rose and Melina who kept the apartments and especially room 143 in such good condition. Looking forward to seeing you on my return.
