Reviewed 26 March 2011

everything was very good,pool,shop location and tamsin at reception was more than helpful, she can book any tours taxi's etc.
apartments are small but very clean and are cleaned every day,
the pool area is very quiet as there is no kids allowed and you can relax on sun loungers as long as you like.
the location is about 50m off the main strip with unlimited dining and drinking spots.the beach is only 200m away.
the only bad thing is that there is no air con.

While this review officially covers a trip in October 2010, it really encompasses some 7 or so stays at this complex over several years. The SFP apts are just a hundred metres or so off the main strip in Puerto del Carmen, the largest of Lanzarote's resorts. It's a small complex comprising mainly studio and one bed apartments. The entrance is down steps from the street and there are outside steps up to all except the ground floor apartments. This may not suit those with mobility issues. However this apart, the SFP apartments are basic in fitting but clean and quiet. There are two single beds in the living area of the studios and a small kitchenette and bathroom. There are only three floors in total with the one/two beds on the top floor. All apartments overlook the swimming pool and all face either south or south east. There is a no children policy and accordingly all guests are adult. While there are some younger (20+yrs) guests, there would be a reasonable portion of guests in the 40+ age bracket. There is no bar or other entertainment on the complex. There is also no music outdoors in the pool area. If you want a rowdy night then the SFP is not for you. However if you want peace and tranquility in the midst of a lively resort then there is no better place to stay. Most of the apartments are studio with some 1/2 beds. We first stayed there several years ago and the night before the holidays my wife badly sprained her ankle and arrived in Lanzarote on crutches. The receptionist in SFP apartments immediately and without being asked, changed out apartment to one at street level to reduce the need for her going up and down steps. That, together with the inherent friendliness of the staff resulted in us returning again and again. The apartments are not air conditioned but you can hire fans. There is also an ample library of books and magazines in reception and books can be hired for €1. Reception operates limited hours but this is not a problem as it usually stays open on the days there are many arrivals/departures. The Irish owners reside on site and have excellent English speaking staff. There are several small grocvery shops at the entrance of the complex with a bar alongside. There is a larger supermarket within 100 metres. We have already booked to return for April and October 2011.

Hi all just back from another wonderfull trip to lanzarote, this time i stayed in these apartments, they have a great location, only a short walk to the main beach "5mins" , the apartments r studio style, clean, they only have the very basic stuff in them, kettle toaster plates, knives forks ect, but only one plug in the kitchen part, so when you boil the kettle, you have to wait for your toast, there is no microwave and only a 2 ring hob, no oven, there is no television in the apartments, some people dont mind this, but I think there should be on there, if it only had sky news on, it would be somthing to glance at while ur around the apartment, nothing as bad as looking at the 4 walls when ur having a quiet nite in if you are wore out after your day, there is a great small spar shop right beside the apartments that provides fresh baked bread daily and all the esentials that one would need, I have to say the 2 girls in reception are just great, really friendly, one from england and a real jolly girl from the states, both make you feel very welcome, the apartments have lots of steps, so not suitable if you have walking dificulties, other than that it is a great place to stay, nice and quiet, no kids under 16 allowed, I would stay there again no problem, I am back to lanzarote next tuesday for a fiew days and will prob stay here again, hope they invest in a fiew tv's soon, forgot to mention the night security man, a very nice guy, all in all the apartments are very cheap to stay in, if its budget accomadation your after, well you cant beat this, hope ye find this review helpfull ....

I wanted a quiet and relaxing week away and that is what i got. I received a very warm welcome from Manon. Tamsin and Manon were very friendly and very helpful throughout my stay. I found the studio i stayed in to be very clean and well equipped, with very comfortable beds. The other staff kept the rooms, pool and poolside areas spotless.

The pool is not heated but that didn't stop me swimming each day! The pool is ionised, so hardly any chlorine needs to be used, which is great.

You don't need to take any books with you to read, which will keep your luggage weight down. The reception has a vast selection of books that you can borrow for only 1 euro.

If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday for a very reasonable price then this is the place to go. Thank you again to all the staff at San Francisco Park Apartments :o)

Very basic apartments. "NO TV", which I didn't mind, but my partner did... main reception hard to find on arrival. steps down to reception and no lift so not suitable for disabled people or families with buggies. hotel staff very friendly. shop next door which was very convenient. night time security man present which made us feel secure. only approx 2 min walk to the beach. it is off the main puerto del carmen strip, the street is a little grubby but we did not mind this as the package we booked was cheap. overall, the location was good and I would recommend this complex for people on a budget.

Chose these apartments as advertised as having no kids! Studio apartments, reasonably sized, with adequate facilities. Close to front and centre of resort, but no excessive noise at night. Easy walking distance of both old town and Matagorda resort. Plenty of bars and restaurants, and prices locally not too bad. Two really nice restaurants - Nouveau, and unfortunately I can't remember name of other one - Mason Mariniere (?). Maid service 5 times per week, and only (minor) issue is that I don't believe towels or linen were changed at all, even though room information indicated they would be. Overall a quiet, relaxing week in a lovely location, and I expect we will visit again.

Just returned from our 4th Annual Christmas Holiday at SFP Apartments. As usual, Tamsin was very helpful and friendly. Location is so close to shops, supermarkets, beach and wide choice of restaurants. Rooms are well serviced/cleaned by very friendly staff. The apartment complex is nice and quiet - perfect for relaxing with a book and just chilling out! Can't wait to get back again. Have stayed in lots of Canary Island resorts - this one is by far the best (and peaceful) - suits us very well. Recommended.
