“BRILLIANT PLACE FOR FAMILIES!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2010

WOW! I would 100percent recommend Cinco Plazas too couples, singles and families. The entire staff were never short of smiles! They made my family and I comfortable on arrival starting with the lovely woman on reception, to James the event organiser ( the children loved him), the restaurant/bar staff who were always friendly and extremely genuine. If i didn't want to do sight-seeing I wouldn't have left the premises, I didn't needs too. Rooms were not 'luxurious' or anything but they were clean and air conditioned. It was a beautiful complex.

My wife and I stayed in a two-bedroom apartment at Cinco Plazas with our 3 daughters aged 4, 6 and 8. We had a very nice time. The Apartment was clean and spacious and the sheets were changed once during the week, and the apartment was cleaned and the towels changed twice! The complex itself was occupied with families with similarly aged children and therefore was quiet at night.
The bus trip from the airport to the hotel was over in a flash as Cinco Plazas was the 3rd stop.
The entertainment in the restaurant was good, the kids especially enjoyed the "mini-disco" run by an Englishman called James who was very good with the children. The mini disco happened every night without fail, and was followed by a different entertainer every time.
We took the half-board option when I think most people were self-catering. This meant that the well-stocked buffet breakfast was a stress-free affair. The breakfast buffet covered the whole range from the usual fried eggs and meats to cereals, fruit and breads. The evening menu was varied enough to be able to have something different every night and even included a few local dishes (try the Lanzarote potoatoes with the salsas - yum!).
The pool (of which there are three) was cleaned daily and there was a lifeguard, but be warned - he has to cover all three pools by himself, so don't leave your kids alone in the pool.
The pleasently clean beach is literally a 5-minute slow walk down the hill, the sea is clear, and small fish even swim around your ankles if you stand still! Even the walk back up the hill is not too bad, we even managed to walk along the seafront to the harbour (2o minutes or so) and still get the kids up the hill to the complex with hardly a grumble!
I would glady take my family back to this Hotel in the future, we had a really nice time and the kids are still singing the songs they learned at the mini-disco!

Just come back from cinco plazas. Went with my husband and 2 daughters for 12 days. What a joy.We had a beautiful a 2 bed apartment overlooking the ocean.Cant praise the staff enough. So helpful. Although we were self catering we had breakfast and lunch a few days.Good food and great service. Only fault was having to set my alarm for 6.20am every morn in order to get a sunbed by pool. Felt like a theif in the night as it was black dark.Other places i have been dont allow you to leave your towel on a sunbed if you are not sitting on it. Might be an idea for management to consider

I am 18 and stayed at the Cinco Plazas in July with my boyfriend who is 20. We found the apartments clean, spacious and comfortable with lovely views from both the bedroom and the balcony. The main pool is a good size and it was never too crowded.

The apartments are only a short walk away from a great beach and the town centre but we were not kept awake at night. Puerto del Carmen has a large variety of restaurants and nightlife (clubs, live music bars) although a lot of places were quite expensive. I couldn't comment on the hotel entertainment as we went into town every night.

We stayed self catering and I would reccomend this as the one time we ate in the hotel (breakfast) it was overpriced and disappointing. My only other criticism would be that on the last day we had to leave the room at midday even though the coach to the airport wasn't until 5pm. We were prepared to pay extra to keep the room but were told this wasn't possible.

However, I would highly reccommend Cinco Plazas and found it good value for money.

We stayed in the apartments at the hotel. Great place, clean, large rooms, superb pools and felt very safe with the children. They had a ball and the children's on-site entertainment at night was loved!!
Strongly recommend it.
