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.
Relaxed atmosphere, good location, quiet. Rooms could do with an update, decor and furnishings quite dated.
Good location, nice garden, close to the beach "playa dorada", plentiful breakfast, very good value for money.
the meals service from the workers in the reception and the restaurant
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 facilities, the quality of the Hotel, the shows
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.
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
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.
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
I loved the resort with wonderful design, seaview and beautiful areas both inside of the hotel and outside. Very good service
The peace and queit of the resort and the weather No
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.
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.
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!
No Russian & English TV channels, poor choice of food during breakfasts, no fresh juices
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.
They upgraded us to a suite. Views and breakfast were fab. The restaurant didn't open until 8pm for dinner. Too late for us.
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.
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
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.
Good location. Good staff. No gift shop.
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!
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.
nice seaview room
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 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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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!!
Good clean rooms with sea view. Near centre and bust stop only about 5 mins walk. Frequent bus service to Puerto del Carmen. none
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.
Clean, new, comfortable rooms. Central location and very nice (sea)view. Staff was very friendly and really very helpful.
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.
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.
We enjoyed the peace, quiet and excellent facilities and service.
The staff was very friendly and the breakfast buffé was excellent. The airconditioning did not work well, it made a lot of noice but did not cool the room.
Restaurant and piano bar were not open, a disappointment. Bar also was closed when we returned at 11.00pm - rather early!!
Beautiful and calm beach is just in front of this hotel!! Staff were kind and capable to help our day-trip. Breakfast was good. Nice room. Also there is a swiming pool and a gym room. From here, you can go north or south of Lanzarote. We recommend this hotel. We should have stayed a little bit longer...
Not very much except the low cost. The staff were not helpful, the breakfast was scheduled to be open until 10, but was closed before and any guests remaining were made to feel uncomfortable... very poor customer service.
Lovely position easy to walk everywhere, good views over beach, very good breakfast and helpful staff. Avery pleasant place to stay. Shame there was no fridge in the room
The very friendly staff are a credit to the Lancelot Hotel. Nothing to complain about
Fantastic buffet breakfast, very clean, CNN chanel, the hotel is basically touching the beach! rooms have balconies with a table and chairs. Besides Arrecife, where the hotel is, has a great bus communication with other towns on the island. Taxi from the airport costs apprx. 10 euros. We will definitely recomend this hotel to all our friends! no free internet
Balcony with sea view and easy access to lovely clean uncrowded beach, Short walk from town centre and from bus station. Guests mainly Spanish as was food at dinner. Breakfast was the usual international buffet. nothing
everything was excellent except the breakfast The jam was not nice and there was no marmalade. The bread was very stale and the fruit was not fresh.
location was great,rooms very big and beds comfartable. room was to far away to carry cases,long way to lift as no lift on first floor,i have bad back and did struggle on day of arrival and then departure with luggage.
Pool area was good, room clean and tidy The bed was a bit hard, and the hotel was a fair way from Puerto Del Carmen, though to be fair there were a few restaurants in Matagorda nearby.
room size very good also nice bright room,lovely view wine selection very dissapointing
2 Single beds push togather to make a double bed, is what i am mostly dissappointed about, otherwise everything else was perfect.
Incredibley large room, excellent kitchen (we stayed half board and got an incredible selection of foods every day), they had programs every evening,. Excellent sea view, beach right across the hotel.
sea view room location and staff.
Staff very friendly, rooms spacious and cleaniness of a very high standard. Looking out on the beach with lots of safe areas for walks Children prefer British style breakfast ... did not like spanish sausages and rashers. Other than that food was nice
the room was very clean and comfortable, reception staff were fine , to be honest we didnt spend much time in the hotel... only slept there. was not happy with the TV channels they dont really cater for english speaking people. Definatley was not happy with the half board option, breakfast was ok but dinner was very bad wouldnt recommend this option to anyone. also the pool area is a disgrace there isnt enough sun chairs and if you do seem to get one, you will be practically sitting on the person next to you.. very bad.
Modern hotel, spacious rooms, very clean, friendly staff, good food, excellent facilities and activities, right on the beach, three pools, entertainment in hotel bar at night with good number of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. Would recommend. Placement of hotel on booking.com map is incorrect, hotel is actually located between the Los Jameos and the Beatriz Hotels and is a 30 minute walk from the main strip at Puerto Del Carmen. There was some airport noise however we did not mind this.
It was resonable value I would like tea making facilitty in the room
The pool area was absolutely amazing. We loved it! They should increase the are for parking, it was always full;-(
Una terraza magnifica. Muy agradable en su conjunto. La playa al lado del hotel es una maravilla.
One of the most relaxing holdays ever - may be too quiet for some but suited us just fine and can't wait to go back. Great food - the buffet meals with choice of fish, meat and pasta prepared to order is fabulous. Though listed 5 star don't expect an Hyatt or Meridian. Some of the entertainment in the evening could have been more professional however didn't spoil things for us.
Good location and generally pleasant ambience. Food was good Hotel was built in the 1970s and has a very dated feel. In our view to justify its 5 star rating it urgently needs modernisation. In particular the room fixtures and fittings were not of 5 star quality. In view of this in our opinion it was significantly overpriced.
Very good breakfast. Nice location with seaview. We order room for 2 persons, but everything was for one.
The hotel has a real nice pool area and what pleased us most of all was the restaurant. The food is just great and the choice is unlimited, both breakfast and dinner.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is very clean everywhere. The pool and grounds are beautiful. Very close to all amenities. The kitchen is pokey, the hot plates were terrible. Not enough power outlets and some didn't work. Tv is all in German. Most of the lamps had burnt out bulbs. The hot water pressure in shower is awful and doesn't last very long.
excellent hotel.very clean,staff very friendly.good food high standards.
Staff, food and facilities were excellent...will return. Towels in bedrom...on the small side!
The staff cannot do enough for their guests and the pool and dining is wonderful.
The best hotel I have stayed at in this price range. Location is great - surrounded by plenty of beach, small shops, bars and restaurants. No nightclubs within earshot. Hotel is very clean and very well maintained. Staff are helpful and friendly. Huge variety of food. Pools clean. Evening entertainment was of a high standard. Very family friendly. The kids (6,4 &2) all loved it from the second we walked in and they were presented with a small inflatable seahorse. I try to avoid going back to the same place twice. This hotel will be an exception to that rule.
I have stayed at the hotel 4 times --- The hotel is very well run and maintain. - food is excellent - staff very friendly - location is very good. The evening entertainment could be better - and perhaps a bit of moderization of the bedrooms might be an idea. I would perfer no dogs allowed.
Excellent family hotel. Good facilities for young children. Helpful staff. Free wifi in hotel lobby. Very good breakfast. The evening meals were average
Enjoy the opportunity to relax in a quality location with good food and comfortable facilities. Fish choice not as good as previous trips
Food variety was excellent The room we were allocated was poor It was on the ground floor, overlooking an overgrown bit of garden with a large receptacle for garden refuse in front There were only two very flat pillows on the bed The main areas of the hotel were furnished luxuriously, but certainly from our experience with our room, the bedrooms were poor quality
Very clean and tidy hotel. Excellent food with friendly and helpful staff.
We liked everything. The staff were great - very helpful and friendly. The food was great - loved the salads ...mmmmmm! The whole complex was great - you would find it hard to find anywhere nicer on the island! n/a
very well organised, a high standard of cleanliness and efficiency, clients dressed in appropriate attire in restaurant, sufficient sunbeds at pool, no noise whatsoever, lovely and peaceful. no, overall very good
Very close to Beach and Airport. Well located in the lively resort of Port del Carmen. Excellent Swimming Pool and other facilites and friendly staff. Good food
Hotel was very clean and staff are very friendly. Rooms are spacious (for 2 adults and 1 infant) but room lacked decent helpful facilities such as a decent fridge and kettle (mini bar fridge, microwave and a bad travel kettle provided but it had to be requested) especially helpful when you have a young child. The Swimming Pool and fitness facility are more than adequate, with the hotel very close to the beach with no road to cross and is therefore great for children. We were on full board bases and the breakfast buffet is good, dinner buffet is ok, great selection but if I was to go back I would not take the dinner buffet option. I would highly recommend this hotel to all ages and families and will return someday for a break Not great facilities in the hotel room, no kettle and the fridge was just a mini bar fridge, this make life difficult when with young children. But in fairness to hotel provide everything we asked for after our arrival. Pool area good but there may be a lack of sun bed at busy times, pool bar has a limited menu. Hotel night entertainment is interesting but fine. Hotel is about 10min walk to the "main strip” but that did not bother me in fact enjoyed the walk!!
Very pleased with the hotel- cleanliness excellent, food good, staff helpful, convenient position without being in the centre of Puerto del Carmen. Room fridge (not minibar) and microwave provided. Hotel provided beach towels on a returnable deposit. Closeness to airport convenient - but no noise problems as a result. Only minor things - in spite of the hotel requesting guests not to 'reserve' sunbeds with towels, many still did it - mostly the German guests, I think. For a 4 star hotel, I think the room safe should be included in the price and not be charged at €2 per day. It would be nice to have BBC 1 available on the room TV as well as CNN and Sky News.
Friendly staff & cleanliness of rooms and surroundings Food isn't the best
room and service excellent
Sun, sea, pool, relaxation, service, everything.Staff ver accomodating and courteous, Will come again.
Fantastic atmosphere, delicious food, clean and comfortable rooms, friendly staff and convenient location.
The entertainment was a bit poor but the kids liked it
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
He bedroom is great. Not enough fresh fruits for breakfast and far too much fried food.
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
Comfort, kindliness of the cleaning lady, style of the furniture, space on the balcony, Rather poor breakfast bufet choice, no shower curtain.
siwmming pool food
everything was perfect,food pool staff,location
Nothing Poor quality room with no access to wifi. Old bathroom facilities and stinky towels. Personel don't speak English. No parking lot.
For only 30 euros it was good value, not the smartist of rooms, plenty of hot water for the shower but the shower head would not stay on the wall. For what we needed, did us well
T he staff were very friendly and helpful the lift was scary, the room was very basic the tv didnt work
A quality hotel offering excellent value for money. Food quality and presentation was very good.
it was ver clean and well maintained yes as above and we stayed all inclusive but had to buy our drinks as in bottled beer and i thought international drinks was bud ect...
Good value/price in all inclusive type. Need an all round refreshment. First of all carpets, furnitures, wall-painting.
Hotel needs to be better maintained, found to many dirty dishes in the dining room ( perhaps they require new dish washer,s ?)
Hotel was clean and had all facilities needed for a holiday. Food wasnt bad Hotels needs a bit of love. Carpets are old and the hotel gets the feel it hasnt been updated since the early 90'S.
nearly everything a beautiful hotel, but need of smartening up, like the carpets a bit shabby
Nothing at all. Was not a four star hotel as advertised, rooms were filthy, rusty bath, mouldy tiles, stained carpets, no tea making etc in room, no mini-bar, food was appalling, many guests complained, bad smelling drains, complained to management in writing-no reply!. The list goes on!.
Location out of town,next to safe beach,peaceful around corridors and landings to rooms
relaxed atmosphere / choice of food/ staff hotel a little tired looking - needs face lift
Plenty of internal space if you want to find a quiet corner. Good central location, close to beach.
The hotel has a great location with sea views from all the rooms. The beach is sixty seconds from the hotel. Very relaxed. The hotel now offers all inclusive to a mainly Spanish client base. The level of spoken English at reception and the restaurant has declined,from our last trip one year ago.
The location, right on the beach. Near to all shops and bars. Great value All Inclusive package.
location and design of the hotel, the staff, the choice of food
The hotel location, friendliness of staff, good breakfast The internet is too expensive (1 euro/10 min), which way above the average prices for public internet in the developed world today.
sleeping and eating first class
Quality of meat very poor Both swimming pools out of use
we loved the location because we like to swim in the sea. The food was lovely and the room was very pleasent with a fantastic view. we thought the entertainment was very poor at night.
