“Excellent choice”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

for a relaxing area choose these apartments. Clean and quiet ... apart from the Irish couple in the room next to the pool whi insisted on letting everyone else share their choice of Irish music full blast!! Will return here as clean and handy for us, staff friendly on the rare occasion we needed to speak to them. Only gripe is the beds are very hard.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are worth the bit extra money

For this kind of budget apartment I would say that for most people the Villa Canaima is a good choice and would have no qualms suggesting it should be on your short-list when visiting Lanzarote.
The strength of the Villa Canaima are the basics, a well maintianed apartment with outstanding levels of cleanliness and cleaning and staff that seemed to be happy and with an eager to please to attitude.
For me Matogorda is the resort of choice in Lanzaraote and for independent visitors is very convenient for the airport with a 5 minute taxi ride. If you want to explore the isalnd its very easy from here to visit the whole island cheaply by local bus and there is a great (though 2 hour walk) along the coast to Arrecife.
The nearest neighbourhood shopping centre with 2 supermarkets and about 8 pubs and restauants is about 5 minutes walk.

We stayed for 2 weeks over Xmas and had a very pleasant stay in this small quiet establishment. Is best suited to mature people and others who just want a good value apartment in a nice environment and well little else from the apartment complex.
Most of the annoyances were little things, which depending on how chilled out you are can be either nothing or a source of needless stress and angst.
For me personally it was the quality of the WiFi, which when we were there was only good enough really to answer brief emails or similar on a non urgent basis.. Given I am self employed and need to field enquiries even when on holiday, it was very annoying given I had sought reassurances about the WiFi when booking.
My partner had a thing about the levels of sound insulation from your neighbours which are never great in these kind of places, but did not seem to be below average in this respect.

Wondered why everybody was eating their breakfast from saucepans on their balconies the first morning until I realised there were no ceral/soup bowl plates, just flat plates. On querying this at the office, a new order of cereal bowls were made and a couple of days later they were in place. Well unless you complain, how can they put it right.

In summary though, this is a good solid place to stay and at the price you'd probably find it hard to beat..
If you are stressed out so much that you're going to take exception to minor niggles you could find anywhere then you'd probably grunble wherever you go.

I have now stayed here on 3 occasions over a few years and the standard and service remains high, still budjet accommodation but very clean, great location, friendly staff and i have already planned to return next year!
Cant fault it at all.

Room Tip: Higher floor gets a better sea view but all rooms have either pool or sea view

Spent 2 weeks at these apartments in October 2011, we had a lovely holiday the views from the veranda was fantastic. We plan to return in the near future as we loved it so much. The only down side were the beds as they were a bit hard for old bones, would be great if toppers could be provided it would make a big difference.

Room Tip: Top floors had great views but a lot of steps to climb, 2 nd floor apartments had good views also w...

Stayed at these lovely apartments from 14th-21st September. We stayed in apartment 7 which is on the first floor and has a great view straight out to sea. I think it was under half full that week and there were no problems getting sun loungers at the pool.

The apartments are clean and tidy and well stocked. Kitchen has a cooker and a 2 ring hob. There is a coin operated air conditioning unit however it still had loads of money left in it from previous guests so we didn’t have to spend anything.

The apartments are located about 10 mins taxi ride from the airport. The main town square which houses the restaurants and pubs is about 5/10 mins walk and this is situated right on the beach front too. There is a good mix of places to eat down there should you decide you don’t want to venture along to Puerto Del Carmen which is about an hours walk along the promenade or 10 mins by taxi.

Villa Canaima is currently sitting at the number 1 spot for top B&B in Puerto Del Carmen and it is well deserved. Staff are very friendly and helpful and booked us two trips with last minute excursions and the pick up point for these is just 2 mins walk up the road next to a taxi rank.

These apartments are in matagorda, really nice, very clean, people were very friendly (even the cleaner). we were there frist week in sept and place was pretty quiet (our group had 4 aparrtments) for first few days then just about busy enough for the rest of our 10 days. air con was a godsend and cooker, oven etc. worked fine. would not hesitate to stay again. suggest booking direct for a better price.

Room Tip: we loved our apartments right beside the pool

traveled with my husband lovely villas very quiet,if you want a bit more life then dont go here. we loved it very relaxing you have to do a bit of walking or catching the bus to get about, buses are very cheap. will say one thing very windy which is deceptive if you dont put cream on you will burn, and the wind never let up it was with us all week. ladies take a cardigan for on an evening as its gets a bit chilly wih the wind wish i had taken one. all in all a very enjoyable holiday appartments very clean no bar though would go back again.
