Reviewed 19 April 2014

Stayed here for week 10-17 April in 2 bed apartment (202), 3 kids 14,12,10. Had great week, location in PDC is perfect. Staff were really good from check in to breakfast and bar staff. Breakfast we found perfectly ok for a buffet breakfast. Room was very clean (my wife is a clean freak). Only thing that stopped us giving it 5 stars was unavailability of air con at his time of year. We had one fan (sleeping in 3 rooms) but found it difficult to sleep at night with heat. Might not be that warm to others but coming from Ireland it def is. Nonetheless would highly recommend and we will stay again when back in Lanzarote

We stayed here for a week on a bed & breakfast basis. The taxi from the airport took approx 15 minutes. The Reception staff are very friendly and check in was prompt and easy. Our apartment was on the 3rd floor with a sea view. The apartment is furnished well, with a small kitchen area with all the usual utensils that you might need, the only things missing were washing up liquid and a cloth to wipe up any spills. I don’t understand why so few apartments expect you will cook or at least make a cup of coffee but never give you the tools to clean up or wash your cups afterwards. Housekeeping staff are very friendly and clean the room every day.
The bathroom was clean and decorated very well with plenty of storage space for your toiletries. The bedroom was OK with huge wardrobes but sadly, very few hangers. There is a safe in the wardrobe and the key from reception will cost you 25 euros plus 10 euros deposit.
The walls are extremely thin and I was able to hear the people in the next room while they were using their bathroom and irritatingly I could hear snoring every night.
The restaurant area for breakfast has insufficient space for the number of guests. Maybe it’s because people just sit around chatting for hours after breakfast but on a few occasions we had to go for a walk and come back later in order to get a table. The breakfast isn’t up to much anyway. Despite other reviews there is actually very little choice if you want a cooked breakfast. There is, however, plenty of fruit and bread.
We didn’t make use of the sun beds around the pool as it always seemed very crowded with people on top of each other. The terrace was also crowded and a mad dash at 9am with people laying claim to a sun bed with a towel and then going elsewhere.
Fariones Apartments are in a great location between the old town and the new town.

My husband and I stayed here January this year, normally we visit Lanzarote with our children but this time we were on our own. We usually stay in the budget aparthotels but we thought we'd treat ourselves this time, having researched on trip advisor we chose Fariones apartments.

I emailed the hotel in advance and asked for a quiet room as I'm a light sleeper (also for a sunny balcony if poss). When we arrived we were given a room whose balcony opened onto the main road it was only a few feet above the pavement so completely public, if we stayed inside we couldn't keep the balcony door open as the traffic noise was so loud. We were disappointed but thought as the bedroom was at the back it wouldn't affect our sleep, how wrong we were! The apartment was also next to the entrance gate, every time someone banged it shut the noise was ridiculous and the whole apartment vibrated! We went to reception and were told there was no other room until the next day so we were stuck with it for the night, to top it off we were woken by the laundry people (who made absolutely no effort to be quiet) at 6am as the laundry room was somewhere below us!
We were moved the next day to another apartment, it was smaller with a shady balcony but still much quieter which was great. The main drawback of this apartment (and I'm assuming many of the apartments in the block) is that noise from every other apartment above or below travels through the extractor chimney, it was pretty funny actually as we could hear other people's dinnertime conversations or people on the toilet shouting to others in their apartment!! Really unusual......
Other than the noise issues, the beds in the apartments are comfortable and the apartment was certainly properly clean when we arrived (although the cleaning while we were there was hit and miss). It's also well furnished, although could do with more comfortable outside chairs.

Breakfast was better on some days than others, a variety of cooked bits which changed each day, some days it was weird boiled veg which is unusual for breakfast..... but there was always fruit, toast, yoghurts etc.

The pool area is small and mostly shaded by mid-afternoon at that time of year but the upper terrace is lovely, great view and sunny all day.

I've given the hotel 3 stars as we really didn't think it was a big enough improvement on the budget version to warrant the extra cost plus there are clearly some noise issues and quite frankly I'm amazed anyone agrees to stay in the first apartment we were given!

Dear client:
Thanks for your feedback to help us improve every day. We regret that your experience in Fariones apartments has not been the expected. Whenever occupancy permits us, we make changes to other apartments, so our customers are satisfied.

Our breakfast is varied and actually we have vegetables for customers who are vegetarian, on request we also have gluten-free food.

Fariones Apartments is a three star hotel with daily maid service, towel change on request, and a breakfast of high quality and perhaps it increases the Price.

Again thanks for your opinion and loyalty to the destination of Lanzarote

Yours sincerely,
Nélida Rosa- Manager Apartamentos Fariones

Great apartments. Stayed on a B&B bases. The breakfast was nice with good selection. Didn't eat any other meals but I'm sure it's nice also! If we return to lanzarote would definitely stay again! Great location and great staff. Quiet not to many kids. Great for couples!!

We accidentally booked the Fariones Apartment on line in early February this year . We meant to book the Fariones Hotel , where we had a great stay many years ago , so when the Taxi passed the Hotel and drove up the hill and stopped outside the nondescript building I told him he brought us to the wrong place , but no , it was us who made the mistake ( well me anyway ) . So we checked in at the reception and were directed out the rear where we were pleasantly surprised and impressed , beautiful pool area , a rooftop sunbathing area with Jacuzzi overlooking the sea which was about half a kilometre away . The apartments are bungalow types which are spotlessly clean , An all you can eat breakfast in the morning with friendly staff ( except for the po faced one who cooks the eggs ) The breakfast area gets a bit hectic when everyone arrives together , best get up early if you want a table handy . Lots of Germans , Norwegians ,Danes , so the food would be geared towards them .
Someone said the TV has very few English stations . Thats true , But it is a nice place , the bar is not expensive , again very friendly staff . All in all I would recommend the Fariones Apartments
