Apartamentos Playa mar
Reviewed 28 December 2010

We stayed for 9 days in a 1 bed ground floor, pool side apartment in mid December. The apartment was generally spacious but the kitchenette and shower were very small. There is plenty of storage space and we saw the apartments getting a very thorough cleaning between lettings. If steps are a problem for you request a ground floor apartment around the pool as there are 16 steps up to the first floor units and between 8 and 40 steps to the apartments that are located off the steps that lead to the beach. There is a charge of €1 per day for the TV , with ony 2 english chanels (Sky News and BBC World News)and also for the safe.

The grounds around the pool are attractive and well kept and prices in the poolside bar are very reasonable, the paella evenings on Thursdays are not to be missed and at €8 pp are excellent value. There is a good Spar shop 75 metres from the entrance to the complex and the main road and beach are approx 300 metres down a gentle hill from the apartments. All the staff, particularly those in reception are very helpful and friendly.

The apartments were very quiet and catered for couples mainly German, but they were very friendly. During the summer and school holidays it could be noiser with families and children. There was no late nite noise from people returning from discos or bars. Restaurants that we enjoyed were the Playamar on the main road under the apartments and Il Sardinero and El Cangrejo Rojo with a roof terrace both overlooking the old Harbour........try the mixed tapas plates. the morning trip on saturdays to the market in Playa blanca was very enjoyable but the market in Tegise on Sunday was 5 times larger and not as enjoyable. We would recommend these apartments and we would certainly return.

Hard to say more than previous reviews. Very clean and excellent service from all including front desk, cleaners and bar staff. Stayed during halloween break and it was quiet even though you are next to main street into old town. 10 min walk into old town and beach just across road. We atayed in 2 bedroom apt next to pool. Very large and well equipped. This was our 6th trip to Lanzarote and probalby best accomodation yet and best value. Only complaint was there were few other families but that may have been due to time of visit. Will definetly return.

Like most appartments at the Canarian Islands the decoration and furniture are simple and not very comfortable, the couch for examples is very hard to sit on. There is no airco which makes it very hard to get a good night sleep (the hard bed did play a role to). The patio is small but big enough for two people. What's very nice about the appartment is it's location, across the street is the very nice and not so busy beach and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from (do not go to the big restaurants where they try to drag you in). The appartments are clean and the service is excellent. If we would go to Lanzarote again we would surely come back here.

Stayed here with my wife and 2 year old. We wanted a quiet spot that was clean within easy reach of the town and beach and this was just the ticket. The other guests are mainly German I think and mostly middle aged or older although there were some couples with small children this could be due to the time of year as it was school time. The staff were great very friendly there is a nice bar which seems to close about 11:30 pm they do a great paealla on Thursday be sure to try it. There are good Supermarkets close by and plenty of restaurant options. I would recommend for Couples (older) or young families may lack facilities for older children and this is not for the party crowd. However we loved it and would be very happy to return.

Such a lovely complex, very quiet and well kept. All the satff were very friendly from reception, to the chamber maids, to the staff at the poolside bar - made to feel very welcome. Great Loaction and the gated access at night made it feel very safe. I would not hesitate in recommending Playa Mar to people, couldnt fault it.
Also for a quiet drink the Rendevous Bar near by was great. Supermarket next door was also very handy.

We went through Lowcostholidays and decided to go for this accommodation even though it was a little more pricer than the others but I definitely do not regret it! It was the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. Extremely clean and the rooms are very well equipped, I didn't have one bad sleep! It was a shame our flight was delayed (through ThomasCook) as we missed a day and when we arrived the doors were closed to get into the complex and if it wasn't for a nice German couple we would've been hogging our suitcases everywhere. But it seemed that even though reception was closed in the afternoon other days the doors were open so someone must have closed it by accident! Playamar staff are constantly cleaning and looking after the area of the pool plants etc. (even though quite early in the morning!) Security was amazing as at one occasion my dad who was staying at other apartment came to collect my brother and I and he was followed the whole way up to the room to make sure that I was okay with it! And you have a key to open the main doors which are closed at night so you feel extremely safe. Playamar is just up a small street which leads down to the main strip and beach which is fantastic. The people who stayed are mainly German and there were no groups of teenagers etc or party goers! It isn't the complex for it, it's very relaxing and intimate. I will definitely come back to Playamar on my next visit as I want my partner to see it! I'm definitely glad I paid a little extra as it definitey paid off, miss it already!

I went with a friend and this place was the perfect size for us two girls. The living room had french doors that opened up to an outdoor patio w/a sea view. The kitchen had all the equipment needed for cooking (even has a frig for leftovers from eating out) The bedroom had two single beds that were very comforable for us. We both slept like logs! Bathroom is equipped w/shower and towels. It was quiet and easy access to the main strip and just across the street from the beautiful blue beach- that was a must for us. The management was so pleasant and helpful; no problems booking online through their website whatsoever either. The grounds/pool were beautiful and well kept; very clean and comfortable all around. I already recommended this to a friend who is traveling there next week and when I return to Lanzarote next year I will return to these sweet little bungalows. Wonderful place and excellent price too! Thanks for a great trip PlayaMar Apartamentos!
