“Another good week but a couple of things......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012 via mobile

My husband & I returned here on the 29th September & stayed for a week.

I love these apartments they are very very clean & safe but.....
This time we had a room above reception....avoid this at all costs, the noise from the road is awful cars/buses driving past all night, people returning back from nights out...the door in reception slamming numerous times!! Trying to sleep was a nightmare I'm just so glad my husband decided to buy earplugs at the airport!!
We did not complain to reception as we had already unpacked & did not want to be moving again...
The only other compliant is about the beds oh my god they were bad!! Sooo soft & creaky - awful to sleep on we did try & sleep on the sofas one night but they were so hard.... we just decided the only way to have a decent sleep was to get drunk haha!! :-)

The pool is big & clean, very cold tho so I wasn't brave enough to go in but my husband enjoyed doing some laps!

Pool bar served yummy breakfasts.

Location is perfect, 5 minute walk down to the beach, bars & restaurants!!
I recommend the new Asian restaurant it was so yummy we ate there 3 times in a week!!

We spend a lot of time walking whilst here it's so easy to get around, we walked to Puerto Calero which has a beautiful marina with some amazing boats/yachts and a small selection of restaurants!
Also Matagorda is a nice walk and again has a selection of bars & restaurants.

If you are looking for a nice cheap week in the sun you cannot go wrong here!

We are already thinking of returning next year..... Plaza Azul if you bought new beds this place would be absolutely perfect :-)

We booked these apartments as part of a low cost package deal. They are ideally located in the beautiful Puerto del Carmen new town. Only 5 minute walk from the sea front restaurants/shops and the beach. The apartment complex is compact so feels much safer. The apartment itself was spacious, bright, newly decorated and very clean. The pool area was brilliant and the complex amenities were ideal. I will definitely book there again on our next visit to Lanzarote.

Room Tip: Our room was last on the left side so no view of pool or sea but still airy and bright.

Smaller of places stayed in Lanzarote. However comes with 2 sun terraces so never miss the sun. Back terrace even has 2 sun loungers for us to lie out on. Apartment was clean and had everything you could need. Cleaning of rooms was very basic mop and make the beds. Had a few dishes on counter top to dry and weren't put a way like what would happen in previous places.
Pool area. Large pool and not the usual freezing cold ones they have in Lanzarote. Getting a sun lounger could b awkward at times not that there wasn't enough loungers just no where to put them. However usually give it half an hour and one pops up. Music from pool bar was nice. Pool bar staff were lovely. Very friendly and chatty to you. We had lunch at the bar regularly from the toasted sandwiches to the pizza all of which was delicious and very reasonable. My favorite was the smoothies available and great cure for a sore head from the night before.
Reception staff and night porters very friendly and helpful each night and during the day.
There is a shop across the road but a cheaper 100 metres down the hill. the hotel itself has a storeroom/shop which you can get supplies which are cheap.
There is a bar/ restaurant which we did not avail of so cant compare.
Would go back to Plaza Azul

Room Tip: 216! Looks like we had the largest outside area.

Stayed here from the 24th august for one week. Apartments were clean and tidy, did have a few ants, but told maid and she sprayed and left spray with us, so never had a problem after that. Check in was quick and friendly. Location good just a short stroll to the main strip, uphill on the way back but not a problem. Pool area clean and nice clean pool, snack bar was reasonably priced and food was of good standard, never used indoor bar or restaraunt so can't comment on them, but they looked fine. Got a taxi too and from airport to hotel only 15 euros each way and only 5 mins ride. enjoyed our stay here and would return in the future.

Just returned from a fortnight with 7 of my friends in Lanzo. The apartments were perfect for us because we wern't looking for anything luxury, just a place nice enough to live in with a decent pool. They were very basic when it came to the kitchen, not many things like graters or decent chopping knives. Also, there wasn't an oven which was slightly annoying.
However the bathroom was lovely, the beds were comfy, even the sofas turned into comfortable beds for sleeping on. They were kept clean and tidy, and the maids had no issues with all the bottles and cans we left every night!
The lack of air conditioning wasn't a problem, and the rooms never got uncomfortably hot.
The pool was lovely and the sun terrace was beautiful at night, and brilliant for sunbathing in the day.
Only a short walk down to the town and all the clubs and a supermarket literally 2 minutes down the road.We had no problem walking back into the hotel in the early hours of the morning, although there was an unpleasant doorman on a few of the nights who would try and stop you bringing anybody else in.
We never used the bar, and never actually saw anybody use it in the whole time we were there..
Also, free WiFi in the reception was a bonus!
We also made friends who were staying in apartments down the road, and although they were larger than Plaza Azul they didn't have their own pools and they were far more costly.
I would reccomend it highly for anybody looking for a money-stay, it was a fantastic place to have a fantastic holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the very edge of the pool will avoid any noise from people like us coming in at 5am...
