Bitacora Club
Ranked #25 of 91 Hotels in Puerto Del Carmen
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Just got back from my annual Easter weeks holiday in PDC this time staying in the Bitacora Lanzarote Club.

There is a myriad of similar standard and priced accommodation in PDC so our choice to stay in the Bitacora was quite a difficult one. In the end it was really more down reviews than anything.

The complex itself sits a few streets behind the main front strip and maybe a bit too far back for some as there is a slight hill to climb. This was no problem for us however and we enjoyed the quiet location. It is situated closer to the port end of the resort however once you have made your way to the front going left or right there are plenty of bars and shops to go at (right is to the port). Try to avoid going past the Atlantico Centre especially at night as its tout hell and they don’t take no for an answer….

In the complex itself the reception area is small but adequate and there is a supermarket attached, although not the cheapest but convenient. The bar area is also quite small and while we were there was never open after 9.00pm.

The pool isn't the best in PDC but OK and there are plenty of sun loungers to lay and soak up the Canarias sunshine.

Our room was what you would expect, basic but comfortable. The kitchen was adequately equipped with microwave, toaster, kettle and plenty of crockery and cutlery, which makes a change. Beds were comfortable and the settee bed in the main apartment I'm told was adequate. Shower was great and provided hot water for as long as required.

The rooms are built around the pool so the majority have balconies or terraces facing inwards. We were firstly given a ground floor with a terrace but I asked to swap for a balcony and this was no problem. It does however, state in the literature in the apartment that room change requests are possible but at a charge of 20 euros. My advice therefore is if you require an upstairs room with a balcony, to ask for it whilst checking in.

We hired a car for the week and parking was no problem as there are spaces just around the corner from the Reception Area.

All in all the Bitacora Lanzarote Club is a good, basic but comfortable complex, slightly away from the main strip. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and as always in PDC and would have no hesitation on returning.

There is however, (as I mentioned earlier) so much more accommodation to sample in PDC, it will probably somewhere else next year.

Room Tip: If you prefer a room with a balcony instead of a terrace ask whilst checking-in otherwise you may be...

We stayed two weeks in middle of March and had a very pleasant time. It is not a 5 star complex but you get what you pay for. its quiet and clean and the staff were very accommodating at all times. a slight drawback was the quality, quantity and infrequent change of towels. They were only changed twice in one week. Do decline the offer of the Monday night invitation of a 3 course meal for ten euro in the dining room!! You will have to go in search of your own entertainment at night. Despite that we would go back again.

Room Tip: South facing rooms on first floor which has a balcony and facing the pool .

Stayed 2nd week of April with friends. Both apartments spotless as was the pool area and the entire complex. Staff very friendly and maids do a great job making sure everything is nice and clean. 10 mins stroll to the new or old town areas, bit of a hill but taxi very cheap. Nice and quiet all through the day and at night so ideal for relaxation. Would recommend highly and would certainly stay again. Many thanks.

Above says it all apartments are a good base the Hill not too bad and supermarkets in easy reach. As I have stated in previous reviews this is a very friendly complex and we are returning again at the end of June for another 2 weeks. Thanks to all the staff.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool in block starting with 203 are best placed for view and sun and being on...

4th visit in two years this time with friends. Arrived very early just gone 10am and was told the 3 rooms allocated for us wouldn't be ready until after 2 which is expected considering check out isn't until 12 but a quick radio call by Marco on reception to the cleaners and we had a room by 10:30 and the other 2 were ready by 13:00 (great service many thanks). By the end of the day both couples who came with couldn't believe how great a value the bitacora is, one couple normally stay in the Fariones but not no more and both have already made plans to return this year. 1st day was very busy with lots of guest but considering it was Easter break there was no kids (Wonderful) still managed to get 6 beds easily, the pool was lovely and warm and heated which I have never noticed before superb. Already booked flights for November and feb next year and trying to squeeze in a quick break this June, no guessing where I will be staying.

Great value these apartment where clean and in good location there is a hill which is not for the people with walking difficulties. Well maintained and cleaned nearly every day towels changed and toilet cleaned all apartment swept and beds sorted. Great friendly staff this is a good place to stay and secure with locked gate at night will use again.

Room Tip: Great value and only ten minutes to the main strip down hill do not let the issue of the hill get in...

My boyfriend and me spent one week in Bitacora Lanzarote Club and it was very nice week. Apartment was clean and we had everything we needed as we booked with self-catering basis. Kettle, microwave, cutlery, plates, cups and more things what we even didn't have a chance to use. Nice balcony, perfect service, room was cleaned 3 times a week, so it is really nice standard. I really recommend this place for people who want to get some rest. Pool was quite big and water was warm even at 9am! We didn't use hotel's bar, because we wanted to try local Spanish tapas, but as we were coming back from town, it was always something happen there - Drag Show, BBQ and karaoke I think. So if you don't want to be a 'traveller' around the island, you can also spend nice time at the pool. Highly recommended, good value for money we paid and it wasn't much! ;)
