Historical Traveler Reviews Celeste Apartments Costa Teguise
Apartments good, sun fantastic, what more do you want?
We have stayed here a few times and always loved the freindly approach of all the staff, the cafe now under new owner ship was even better than before. Excellent value for money and the best bacon butties on the island!
The spanish tapas bar within the complex itself is owned and run in true spanish style and is great if you like to drink local away from the more English bars further round.
Every thing you want is here really, you are close to the British bars if that is your thing, or more local ones if you prefer. We hired a car to drive along to some more out of the way places and saw the real Lanzorote with in minutes of driving from the apartments. We are a middle aged couple, our teenage children visit on some of our stays and love it too, and there are always families with younger children around who seem to be having a good time. It is very windy tho, and January you need to come prepared for all weathers, we stayed last January too, when it was very wet and cold. A contrast to this years welcome sun.
Great new year

The Celeste Apartments are located in Costa Teguise, the second-largest but still quite small tourist resort on Lanzarote. The Celeste is in the centre of the resort, a five minute walk from the beach and main restaurant/bar area. The complex is well designed with ground and first floor apartments built around a court yard with a small pool at the centre (more for dipping in than swimming). We had a two bedroom apartment for just two of us so had lots of space but had there been the maximum of four people it would have seemed a bit small. The apartment was clean and comfortable with two twin rooms, joint living area and kitchen with breakfast bar and small kitchen, it also had a furnished balcony off the living room that had the sun all day and a smaller balcony off one of the bedrooms. A lot of previous reviews used the word 'basic' to describe the Celeste, I wasn't sure what this meant but now presume its due to the apartment facilities, for example, although there is enough crockery and cutlery, as well as a toaster, kettle, microwave and a few saucepans and cooking utensils, there is no oven (just a two ring hob) and you might want to pack 'necesities' such as a bottle opener. Having said that there is a long list of things which you can hire from reception for the week including kitchen equipment such as a mini oven, as well as things for the beach i.e. body boards and windbreaks, we managed fine without hiring anything however, even though we cooked a few meals in the apartment. The resort was very quiet at the time we went as it was the start of the season (although the weather was great), there are some bars close to the Celeste, but these are not open late and it was fairly quiet while we were there.
Just a word about Lanzarote and Costa Teguise, the resort is quite small (I wouldn't recommend going for more than a week) and very very British, even compared to other places I have been such as Crete. This is not really a problem, but it was a bit frustrating to have to search among the many restaurants to find the few Spanish/Canarian ones, which when found were excellent. The resort has great beaches, although the constant wind means you occaisionally get sand blasted. The Island itself is fairly barren, with a large volcanic national park being one of the only interesting things to visit, so if you are after history/culture or nice scenery I wouldn't choose Lanzarote, however if you are after a straightforward beach and watersports holiday you will love it and you wont go wrong with the Celeste.
Weather was fantastic
Have recently spent a week in the Celeste Apartments. - It was better than we expected. We booked a 2 bedroomed apartment - quite spacious. The apartment was spacious and clean. Had a slight problem with a smell coming from the bathroom - we think it was the drains but we soon sorted it out. The only other problem was the fridge - it was all iced up - so had to defrost it. Comment from my teenagers - had to pay to have the t.v. on - we decided to go without. It made a difference not having the distraction of the T.V.! The bars and shops were closeby and its about 5 minute walk to the beach. It was nice to know everywhere was close and convenient to get to but at the same time you were far enough away from the noisy bars - there are bars allocated right by the complex - so i would imagine it would get busy and noisy in the summer - reception were very helpful - and being able to store our passports etc. in the safe was a relief. Watch out for the car hire in reception though - we went through all the paperwork and were then told we had to give 100 eurs deposit! All in all it was a smashing holiday - if you want value for moneyFinally I just want to say how useful the reviews have been on this website - which is why I decided to write my own!!
stayed here for 4 nights in december apartment spacious and clean tucked away in quiet area away from bars which to be fair at time of visit resort as a whole was pretty quiet, anyway i can see if you got the wrong apartment in high season late night noise could be a problem my advice if you decide to go to this resort and apartments try and go out of peak season and you will have a great stay.
Una estancia estupenda
Me alojé aquí 4 noches en diciembre. El apartamento era amplio y limpio, estaba resguardado en una zona tranquila lejos de los bares pero, a decir verdad, cuando estuvimos allí el complejo entero era bastante tranquilo, de todos modos. Supongo que si te dan el apartamento equivocado en temporada alta puede que te moleste el ruido a última hora de la noche, mi consejo es que si vas a este complejo de apartamentos no vayas en temporada alta y así tendrás una estancia estupenda.
We stayed in the Celeste apartments on the 22nd Sept and would definately go back. The apartments were basic but clean. The staff were great. The cleaners very friendly and even the caretaker was always on hand. I have to admit, we have been on a few holidays abroad but i don't think the staff anywhere else have been as nice as at the Celeste. As i said it was basic but isn't that what we want when we go away, The apartments all have there own balcony or bathing area, so you get as much privacy as you want. We will be going back.
Ok but not the best
We have just returned from a 2 week stay. I have to say the location of these apartments are fantastic within easy walking distance from the beach shops etc. The staff were friendly and always helpful.
There certainly was a few problems with our apartment obviously i cant say what they are all like.Are apratment was really dirty there was mould running the soup dish and sink in the bathroom,the plug in the bathroom was made of tape and there was sockets hanging of the wall. I just felt that our apartment anyway was very run down. Unfortunatley we were situated directly above the Blue Moon bar which dont get me wrong was a great bar but i think was open till about 3am some nights so the noise wasnt great as we have a 6 year old. Even having a shower in the evening was a bit of a problem. There was only ever enough hot water for 1 shower. As there was three of us it was always a fight to see who got in there first.
The celeste is made up of 3 complex's each with there own pool. All of these pools were tiny and just couldnt take the numbers of guests staying in the accomodation. If you just wanted to spend the day lounging around the pool you better make sure you are down at the pool very early as your lucky if there is 20 loungers at each pool.
We did have a great holiday in Costa Teguise and have already booked again for next year but we will not be staying at these apartments again.
Brilliant just brilliant

Landing at the airport I quickly found that they only had one ATM and it was out of order and there was nowhere to exchange cash. So rather than getting the bus I was lumped with a taxi.
It was a small bump in what was a chilled five days in the little town of Corralejo in the north of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. It's a kiteboarding and surfing paradise so not quite my cup of tea but I really enjoyed the laid back vibe ...

Feliz Cumpleaños a mi and its a warm 28 degree day! Nursing a sangria hangover we have a delicious cooked breakfast before jumping on the 9am bus from Playa Bastian to the inland Teguise markets - the oldest in Lanzarote. Here we find 100's of stalls selling everything from toe rings and cactus muffins to 'genuine' fake handbags. After half an hour we've seen most of it but have another 2.5 ...

Today we are jetting off into the sun, for a long weekend getaway for my birthday. We're leaving a surprisingly warm Edinburgh, which is fortunate because the walk to the tram is in t-shirts and jandals - yes, we are flying Ryan Air for the first time, and hand luggage is sparse. It was a slow start to the morning after a night out with the Edinburgh crew lastnight. To get into the Spanish theme, cousin Cheryl dared Kev to drink a jalapeno cocktail - ...
... started running to the beach. There was still 15 minutes till start and Em was carrying an incredibly heavy backpack so we just walked. The beach was already filling up fast when we got there and people were coming from all directions it seemed like. We found a good spot right by the water about 60 yards from where all the swimmers were going to go in. The sun was just starting to come up over the town horizon to the left and to the right was ...
