Reviewed 17 September 2010

Just after returning from Lanzarote and these apartments are really in a great location,right on the strip in the new town but secluded enough that you are not disturbed by the noise. Pool is fine, but pool bar closes at 6 pm every evening which is strange but your so close to the bars on the strip it doesn't really matter. Didn't really try the bar menu but there is a fantastic Italian resaurant right outside the apartment complex.
The only issue is that there is no air con and with the temperatures at night you reaaly need air con. They do supply fans for hire but they are not much help.
Would recommend these apartments as everything is on your doorstep and if they had air con in the rooms then it would be perfect

I am just back from a weeks holiday in Lanzarote with my boyfriend. We stayed in the Barcarola apartments mainly due to the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. When I booked this apartment I didn't realise that it had no air conditioning, when I realised this I called the agent I booked my holiday with to try and change to an apartment with air con but they advised me not to as Barcarola is such a lovely place and also advised that we could hire fans at reception.
I really wish we had changed apartments as we did not sleep properly all week due to the heat and stuffiness in the apartment. We did rent a fan, at a cost of sixteen euro, but to be honest it was so small it was no use if you were sitting any distance away from it. Also we were advised not to leave the windows open during the night for safety reasons.
Dont get me wrong, the Barcarola is a really beautiful place to stay. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the place is very clean. We did see a few ants in the apartment and also outside but I would imagine this is due to the heat not cleanliness.
Due to the lack of air con I wouldnt recommend Barcarola for older people or people with breathing problems. Unfortunatly we wont return to the Barcarole simply because there is no air con.

As others have said the apartments are Very Very clean. The apartment blocks are low rise 2 stories - I think there are about 12 of them. We stayed in Block D one bed room apartment which was sufficient for 2 adults and 2 kids (7 and 4) we were beside the pool (most blocks are positioned around the pool) we had a small private back garden which the kids could play in, in the evenings. There was never a problem getting sun beds and there is a mixture of nationalities mainly Irish. They are right beside loads of restaurants the Italian at the main entrance was really good.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The Mini club entertained younger kids in the morning (Colouring and Arts and Games) and older ones in the afternoon (Darts, Pool, Table tennis, and water polo).
The only negative would be no air conditioning .

Just got back from Lanzarote and the apartments Barcarola and to be honest it's very hard to fault it. The service from all members of staff e.g. reception, waitresses, cleaners, Alexis (Entertainment coordinator) were exceptional. The apartment was plenty big for the 4 of us and had two bathrooms (which was a bonus!). The bathrooms are a little dated but clean and functional. There is no air conditioning which was a problem (the temp hit the mid 40's one day!) but have since found out that fans can be obtained from reception!! There is a good restaurant immediately to the right of the apartments and in comparison to some of the others in Puerto Del Carmen, good value for money! We would definitely return to Barcarola apartments because it's apparent that as customers we mattered, which in this day and age, is a rare thing!

I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Puerto Del Carmen staying in the Barcarola Club. I can not give enough praise to this complex it made our stay most enjoyable! On our arrival we were greeted by a lovely friendly man at reception and throughout our stay always greeted us with a big wave and a Hola, all staff were very friendly and helpful! We were allocated our room, block G, balcony and pool view was great. When we got to our room there was a fruit basket, a bottle of wine and a bottle of water for us a great welcome, overall a great first impression! Room were greatly equipped with toaster, kettle, coffee maker etc, and a nice big fridge. Rooms were cleaned everyday! The pool area was cleaned daily. The complex is in the centre of the town, a great location, 15-20 min stroll to main area. There is lovely restaurants which we enjoyed alot. Trattoria is a lovely place to eat! Great place for a live band is Mulligans Irish Bar, The Usual Suspects, play Sun- Fri so make sure you check them out wont be dissappointed, it also does lovely food! Given the choice choose Barcarola it will make your holiday!! Lovely area and would go back in a flash!
