Apartment in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote, Canary Islands - Peaceful Location. Conveniently Located Above The Harbour Area's Shops And Bars. Quiet Complex
About Heather Johnson
I love the sea and sandy beaches!
Heather Johnson purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Heather Johnson chose Puerto del Carmen
Beautiful sun rises and sun sets... starry skies at night... sandy beaches... dramatic volcanic scenery... ocean views... Who wouldn't..? Puerto del Carmen is so convenient for the modern Arrecife Airport and the Old Town area lacks the disruptive flight-path noise of the Matagorda end of town! The Lago Verde complex itself is well-run and quiet and the residents are friendly and welcoming. The apartment is single storey so no neighbours above or below to disturb or be disturbed by. Access off the complex via the adjoining locked security gate is so convenient for popping to the supermarket! The architectural design with it's pyramid ceiling and stained glass window is unique and also quirky to say the least! Certainly the best apartment I found in my property search
What makes this Apartment unique
The ease of access off the complex cannot be emphasized too strongly. Considering the steepness of the landscape, to only have eighteen steps to descend is a delight to someone with my old bones! Despite it's proximity to local amenities, it is a quiet and peaceful location. The licensed complex is home to a mix of permanent residents, privately-owned, time-share and management-owned rental properties and has a more homely feel than some holiday let accommodation. New for 2015: replaced pergola, new guttering, wiring upgrade, replastered, repainted. Hot tub. From May 2016 there is a lifeguard service in operation during pool opening hours
Check in and check out time can change depending on flight times.

Property in beautiful location, amazing views and very comfortable complex. Actual apartment tired, smells damp on arrival, beds extremely uncomfortable and sofa bed impossible to sleep on, bed linen for sofa bed in appalling dirty condition and not fit for use, skylight in lounge leaks. All towels provided, however, did not smell or feel fresh and when changed for new ones, they were in the same condition - this is obviously an issue with the complex cleaning facility. The patio drainage was poor, we had a heavy spell of rain and half the patio was flooded for 12+ hours whilst it very slowly drained away.The accomodation was otherwise well equipped and thought out, it is a real shame these fundamentals let it down.
I am sorry the weather was inclement during your stay.
Your comments regarding the Lago Verde housekeeping standards have been forwarded to their management - I can only apologise and hope you raised your concerns at reception during your stay.
I am sorry you were disappointed.

nice apartment in fabulous complex
lovely 1 bedroom apartment, has everything you need some aspects a little dated, very spacious outside area with a wonderful hot tub. it's the 3rd time we've been to the complex, pool area is great lots of beds, fantastic pool. the pool shack serves good food and fantastic cocktails always a friendly atmosphere with many regulars returning yearly. good location lots of nice bars locally and only a short walk to the harbour and €3 taxi back. can't wait to go again.
Thank you for the review.
I look forward to seeing you on your next trip!
Perfect for a relaxing break away
Me and my husband visited Lanzarote for the first time and managed to find this little gem to stay at. It is in perfect location not far from the old town (about 10 minutes walk) and new town (about 20 minutes). Even a taxi from new town is only about 4/5euros. The apartment gorgeous, has everything you need and a Spar a minute away for anything else. The hot tub was an amazing little touch.
The pool is lovely and has pool shack owned by a lovely couple who have food and drinks.
Really couldn't of asked for a nicer place, hopefully will be able to return one day and would recommend to family and friends.
Thank you for the review.
I am sincerely glad you enjoyed your stay and would be happy to welcome you back for a return visit.
Local shops, bars and restaurants are 100 metres away and the town and harbour is within a 15 minute downhill walk. The beaches are around 15 minutes walk from the complex. Puerto del Carmen boasts 6km of sandy beaches - four with blue flag accreditation - which are boarded by a wide pedestrianized promenade with cycle path. Bicycles can be hired. Fishing excursions run from the harbour. There is a local dive school.
Car hire is not necessary but can be arranged through reception. The local bus service is good and Taxis are reasonably priced.
Lanzarote, a Spanish island, is the easternmost of the autonomous Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 125 km (78 mi) off the coast of Africa and 1,000 km (621 mi) from the Iberian Peninsula. Covering 845.9 square kilometres (327 sq mi), it is the fourth largest of the islands.
The apartment is conveniently situated with easy access out onto Calle de Toscon for the local Spar supermarket and the nearby Montana Tropical restaurants and shops via locked security gates.
For a livelier night out Avenida de las Playas 'the Strip' offers bars and nightclubs.
Puerto del Carmen boasts 6km of sandy beaches boarded by a wide pedestrianized promenade with cycle path linking to the neighbouring towns of Playa Honda and Arrecife. It has become the paradise of pedestrians and sport lovers and is renown for its leisure, sport and resting options. It never loses sight of the sea and is well-lit at night.
Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park on the outskirts of Puerto del Carmen is well-known for its animals and water park. They also host a Country Night.
Parque Nacional de Timanfaya is a Spanish national park in the southwestern part of the island.The parkland is entirely made up of volcanic soil. In 1993, Unesco designated a Biosphere reserve covering the whole island. Access to the park by the public is strictly regulated to protect the delicate flora and fauna.There are one or two footpaths, and a popular short route where one can visit by camel. There is a public car park from where you can tour the volcanic landscape by coach using a road that is otherwise closed to the public. Water poured into the ground results in a geyser of steam.
