Relaxed atmosphere, good location, quiet. Rooms could do with an update, decor and furnishings quite dated.
The facilities, the quality of the Hotel, the shows
I have stayed there on 3 previous occasions. The location is fantastic, you can walk to beach, restaurants etc. etc. This time, the food was not great. Steak and other meats served were usually tough cheaper cuts. We were half board.
Very good location. Helpful staff. I chose the hotel on the expectation that one of the outdoor pools would be heated for the children - it was not. Otherwise great trip.
The young people on reception were wonderful & friendly and it did help that they spoke English. The cleaning ladies were very good too.Loved the location; would stay again. Value for money!The entertainment was really good. Especially the "Supremes". The Spa and some areas |& rooms would benefit from upgrading.Also should be strict guidelines about noise & ball playing round the swimming pool areas.I have stayed at all kinds of hotels all over the world and would say (inspite of the exchange rate) yours is good value for money. I think that is the key; offering good value.
Close to the beach The dinner. The meal in the buffet was really very low quality.
Good location, nice garden, close to the beach "playa dorada", plentiful breakfast, very good value for money.
spacious room , price quality was great, upgrade possible I was offered an upgrade for 10 euros but they took too long to clean the room so I finally got another one too close to the pool, since they have activities from 10:30 to 23:30 there was a bit too much noise
pool and snack bar was good,the breakfast was excellent and the staff were fantastic at meal times very friendly to our 3yr old . main bar and reception could have been run better example when we arrived on tues at 7pm we were told are room was not ready because of a late check out , i have a 3 year old so you can only imagine my frustration of having to wait for 30 mins , but the flip side was i got a lovely room and i would go back.The coffee cups were small and pricey.
the meals service from the workers in the reception and the restaurant
The breakfast buffet was a favourite with all the family and the staff and facilities were excellent. The entertainment could have been a bit more exciting!
We found our stay very Relaxing and enjoyable. The staff where polite and courteous and would recommend this Hotel. We booked the Spa for the duration of our stay
very comfortable suites, large terrace, good breakfast, price corresponding to the quality, we were satisfie
I like the fact that you can easily get a sunbed at the poolside, no towels on beds from early morning. Because the group is now NH, I was not allowed to use my Hesperia points from a previous visit to reduce my bill.
The peace and queit of the resort and the weather No
The whole place looked 5 star but the service did match up and should be rated 3 star. The food was disgusting, the restaurant manager was rude, the room towels were falling to bits. It took half an hour to check out as the staff did not know what they were doing.
I loved the resort with wonderful design, seaview and beautiful areas both inside of the hotel and outside. Very good service
Location, views of the sea and the hotel facilities are second to none. The hotel location and facilities are second to none. However the whole five-star service element seems to be lacking from the staff working in the Hotel. You don't get the impression from that them that nothing is too much trouble.
No Russian & English TV channels, poor choice of food during breakfasts, no fresh juices
Great quiet position, the spa, overall cleanliness. The spa didn't open until late (1030hrs) so no chance of doing anything down there before breakfast.
We were upgraded to a suite at the 15th floor with an extraordinary view over the beach and the ocean. The staff was professional. The beach near the hotel is great (soft sand, palms, calm water).The room and services provided by the hotel were definetly worth the money.
I liked the room and the view from the window (no balcony). I liked the breakfast. The 2nd floor pool too open and therefore windy. Pool bar closed (9th sept?). No outdoor eating/drinking areas. Views were from behind windows. No concierge service when we arrived or left. No ambience. No warmth from the staff. Limited menu in the restaurant.
The level of comfort, installations and personnel are everything you would expect of a 5* hotel. Its position right next to the beach is excellent and it is very easy to find, being the only tall building on the island! This was my first visit to Lanzarote and I would have no hesitation in returning: the only place I would stay is this hotel. Breakfast excellent .- including champagne and egg chef - and with lovely views from floor to ceiling windows. We were upgraded to a suite (there are twice as many suites as rooms) on the 15th floor and enjoyed fantastic views in two directions. The minibar contains complimentary water and juices. G&T in the bar on the 17th floor to watch the sunset is an essential appointment. No, nothing - everything was excellent. Brits may require tea and coffee making facilities in the room but this is a rarity in Spain.
Views were really good. Top floor bar at 17th was lacking in atmosphere, it could be awesome with a good interior designer. Really big rooms, pool was windy as described by some one else, but there is a good beach just below it. Go for the views of the bay and spaciousness! Good bar across the road. Oh breakfast was great too. Did'nt eat dinner there.
They upgraded us to a suite. Views and breakfast were fab. The restaurant didn't open until 8pm for dinner. Too late for us.
big room, nice breakfast. Location is central, near a nice small beach. Hotel needs urgently a facelift! Brown water came out the pipeline, not very nice. They tried to solve it, service ok.
The location was excellent - right on the beach, and the staff were cheerful and helpful. The showers seem to have a mind of their own and change temperature at random intervals!
Well positioned in Arrecife. Helpful staff. Decent suite. Excellent breakfasts. Out of season, many of the facilities were closed. The top floor restaurant, despite the views, produced only average food at expensive prices
nice seaview room
Good location. Good staff. No gift shop.
A localização em frente à praia e o buffet bastante variado incluindo funcionários a confeccionar grelhados à escolha na hora e com boa qualidade. Solicitamos um quarto com vista mas, apesar de se ver o mar, este estava algo distante não correspondendo à vista que esperávamos quando solicitamos este tipo de quarto.O horário do buffet deveria ser alargado porque acaba algo cedo para horário de férias, assim como a hora a que termina o buffet deveria corresponder à ultima hora a que os clientes poderiam entrar e não à hora a que tudo é rapidamente retirado pelos funcionários.
a sympatía do pessoal, sempre pronto para ajudar, e a qualidade e abundância das refeições eram spectacular. Tambem a architectura do hotel era muito agredável. as toalhas de casa de banho, embora com muito bom aspecto, não secavam nada.
Serviço de restaurante e comida. Falta de privacidade nos quartos do r/chão pois para 4 estrelas parecem apartamentos com porta de vidro virada ao corredor de passagem de clientes.
Comfort, kindliness of the cleaning lady, style of the furniture, space on the balcony, Rather poor breakfast bufet choice, no shower curtain.
He bedroom is great. Not enough fresh fruits for breakfast and far too much fried food.
The entertainment was a bit poor but the kids liked it
hotel rooms very clean good size bathroom with a huge walk in shower overall would recommend only negative was no shower door water all over the floor bathroom no shower door floor destroyed with water
Showers are wonderful the best I have used yet only negative would be they must put slip mat inside for safety otherwise no complaints Although their was a wide choice at breakfast the hot buffet was cold and this needs to be addressed also Toaster takes forever toast has to be put through about 4 times to get it brown please buy better toasting machines
siwmming pool food
everything was perfect,food pool staff,location
location they allow customers to book sun beds with towels and some customers did not come back for hours. They should remove these towels
I liked the surrounding areas, being able to look out at the sea from my room. The grounds are very impresssive and well looked after. While the hotel itself if very well kept the bedrooms could do with being upgraded, furniture carpets in particular need to be replaced. We have been going there for over 13 years and there have really been no changes to the rooms.
Late check-out and use of hotel facilities - great Sun bed craziness. There should be a no-reserve policy on all sun beds. If a bed is empty for 1 hour, then security should remove all belongings left to 'secure' the bed. Also check-in was very unwelcoming. The record of our reservation was inaccurate and we were made to feel that it was our fault, whcih was bad.
Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Location excellent and well maintained grounds. Bedroom furniture needs ugrade.
The location, being beachside and close to the shops and facilities at Puerto del Carmen
It was a wonderful relaxing time. Very safe for families with young children.
Full of Irish Rooms a bit small, no air conditioning
The facilities were excellent and the location was excellent, it was well landscaped and well maintained facilities for lunch could be better as bar menue was very limited. No restuarant facilities at the hotel.
The facilities are excellent...the proximity to the sea and it's own beach, the terraces overlooking the sea etc. The location is superb..at the historic end of Puerto del Carmen.IBy the way, I think your service is excellent..your website works well, and I seem to get better rooms when I book with you. Usual sun lounger problems..reserve one at 6am!!
Hotel is great for singles, couples and families. Fantastic location. Fantastic views from bedroom and balcony - close proximity to the sea which you could hear lapping even when balcony doors closed. Very relaxing. Pool area idyllic for everyone. Most of the staff are really excellent, friendly & smiling especially in Reception. I was given a birthday cake & wine on my big day - A nice touch. This is a lovely hotel in a lovely area of PDC. Brilliant for just relaxing or sampling the nightlife of PDC Ive stayed here many times before - Hotel has now changed its policy, instead of a great buffet lunch it only serving snacks during lunch time. These varied from not bad frozen type burgers to pretty basic toasted sandwiches and salads- Very disappointing!. Although some drinks prices have stayed static the price of draught beer is now extortionate. The 'beach' bar was not open during my stay, so if you wanted a drink by the sea you had to go and get it from the main bar. Sun loungers & parasols seem to be 'reserved' at 6am for the best positions round the pool and overlooking the sea ! Having said that there were plenty of loungers available for everyone all day [ but not parasols or chairs] - But none of this spoilt my stay
The handiness, convenience and location of hotel. Love the rooms, location and surrounding area. located near shops pubs restuarants etc. great clientele, good facilites for children, nice apartments, pool area spotelss, hotel spotless. Bar staff not friendly- restaurant staff not efficient. Beds very uncomftable. Reception staff could be a bit more efficient for registering visitors and facilitating them when they ask for safe keys and towels on check in rather thatn told come back later as im busy!!
Location of hotel great direct access to the beach. Breakfast was included in deal and was very good. Room was not thoroughly cleaned
I found the food was excellant and the hotel location was perfect No indoor pool with steam room
The apartment was fantastic and the cleaning staff were brilliant. The location was perfect and we will definetly be returning again for a visit
Situation near beach.Cleanliness.Service. Nothing.
had a wonderful time at the farionnes..close to the beach..great breakfast..good entertainment..staff very friendly
We acyually stayed in the apartments, what we loved the most was easy access to the beach and the magnificent breakfast and lunch food. n/a
The pool, step onto beach, breakfast and balcony No air con in room, mozquitos will come in if you leave windows open as they are common due to gardens, having to pay at checkin
We enjoyed the peace, quiet and excellent facilities and service.
Very helpful staff. Everything done for you. Good breakfast buffet plus hot dishes cooked to order. Optional dinner -- also good. Hotel is very well-appointed with a beautiful garden.
hotel muito agradável, ambiente familiar, com excelente localização, bons serviços (atendimento/funcionários muito simpáticos e prestáveis sempre disponíveis a dar informações e garantir uma boa estadia, animação diurna/nocturna), bons espaços (quartos espaçosos e funcionais, área de piscinas sempre limpa e organizada, bar/sala de espectáculos)... foi uma óptima estadia que recomendamos... apenas alguns pormenores...a comida às refeições (excepto p.almoço que era óptimo) nem sempre era muito saborosa mas com razoável diversidade, necessidade de algumas obras de remodelação (pinturas, arranjos), dificuldade em regular/estabilizar a temperatura da água do chuveiro...
Localização Demasiado Familiar
Pool bar was great as was the pool itself. The location was perfect as it's only 10 mins walk to the local shops/bars/restaurants. You will need to get a taxi to the new town but this is only approx 4Euros and is only 5 mins away by car. N/A
Standard accomodation, pools were nice and apartments were quite spacious as was the bathrooms. View of the sea was lovely. Was 5 mins in a taxi to the main strip of puerto del carmen. The cleaniness of the apartments were quite poor and no air con was available, very hot at night. Steep hills up to the apartment and so people with poor mobility have to get taxis. Pool bar was quite bad and staff were quite rude.
Cleanliness of complex and rooms, quiet resort and good helpful staff. Food was a little 'cold' at times, and choice was somewhat limited.
Convenient to beach,nice pool area. No kettle or toaster, had to return to reception to rent remote control for air conditioning, should have been told this on checking in.
Good hotel for this price, good location, good breakfast and dinner for one week. Good hotel for the holiday. One thing is mystic for me in a lot of the hotels-apartments. Why remote control of the TV set is stored in reception??
It is a very nice appartment complex and with a fantastic warmed swimming pool. The food was very good as well. One of the servants in the dining room was not always that friendly
Very Friendly staff, great rates, fantastic facilities too
Disappointed at having to hire a kettle from reception as none in the apartment also hair dryer was hard to manage also very poor selection of beers in the bar.
great location helpful staff very clean and spacious great big pools would definatly return
The excellent beachfront location, the very nice room. Outstanding value for money. We could find free parking space on the street while arriving during siesta time. It was a 10 min drive to the airport, very covenient. The coffee served with the breakfast was of terrible quality.
Good clean rooms with sea view. Near centre and bust stop only about 5 mins walk. Frequent bus service to Puerto del Carmen. none
Close to the airport (10 mins by taxi). Beach (outside hotel), shops resaurants within easy walking distance. Good breakfast, nice room and well appointed. No hot water one morning due to fault in the hot water system, therefore cold shower - probably good for me, but not by choice!
The location is great overloking Playa Reducto, The rooms are of good size and well appointed nice bathroom and powerful shower The hotel is ideal if you do not want to be staying in a "full on " tourist area a chance to practice some spanish and the locals cater for spanish locals so the food is more interesting and yet local buses nearby means you are never very far away from anythingThe staff were excellent and very friendly apart from one female receptionist we had cold water for 4 days of our stay which somewhat marred our stay and they refused to give any discount from the bill as a "gesture" so you would need to check they have sorted their problems!!
The comfort and quietness, the staff at reception were very helpful. the breakfast scenario needs to address the hot water for tea etc. Using jugs to bring water is a little outdated.
Great location, comfortable rooms. It's worth to pay additional money for sea view. Wi-Fi connection was availible only in a small area near the room door, but we didn't find it a serious enough problem to ask the hotel staff to do something with it.
Clean, new, comfortable rooms. Central location and very nice (sea)view. Staff was very friendly and really very helpful.
The Diamar is a good quality budget hotel on the Arecife promenade. The buffet breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Our room had a lovely view overlooking the sea.
Everything - location, near centre, sea view, cafes, restaurants. Very clean and staff very helpful. Hotel looked new. Wi Fi internet access only worked outside room. I could not get signal in room with door shut!
