Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Coronas Playa Costa Teguise
Arrived on 18th April staying for just one week.Staff were very friendly and Hotel was very clean.The rooms were spacious and well set out.The two girls who were entertainment staff whilst we were there were very friendly,if you went out for a walk and they were down the road they wouldn' pass you without speaking and asking if you were ok.Food was excellent with plenty of choice and then the night time entertainment was very good with both of the girls (Nicole and Ros ) giving their all.How we wished that we could have stayed for another week.
Had a great time here. The hotel is lovely, rooms are really clean and spacious. The staff are so friendly - willing to do anything for you. The reception staff are very helpful, the restaurant staff are lovely and the waiters in the pavillion are great! The resort of Costa Teguise wasn't that good, but there was plenty of entertainment in the hotel that kept us occupied - the entertainments team were very good, especially Sofia. Overall, a really enjoyable stay at the hotel coronas playa - I'd definately go back!
Loved everyminute of it
i have juts come back from the Coronas Playa and i thought that it was fantastic, the staff were more then helpful esp predro and david there were great really bubbly and make me laugh. i couldnt tell you how the ffod was, it was pop stuff, there was lots of choice, i would reccomend that you go there big thumbs up!!!!!
Just spent a week At the Coranas Playa with friends We picked the hotel at random from the Portland Brochure. Can honestley say this is the friendliest hotel we have ever stayed in Once you have been greeted by Nati you never look back. The waiters are all over you If you dont want children running about this is the place The rooms are very spacious with plenty of hanging space and are kept spotless Two swimming pools and plenty of sunbeds The food is plentyful with a great choice. you will never go hungry. We were also fortunate to see one of the carnivals as it passed the front ---Magic moments--- Went on the Thompson tour of the volcanoes A bit expensive but considering the fact that it is something you would not normally see it was just about worth the cost. This is the first time we have been to Lanzarote and I think I prefer it to Tenerefie on balance.
Such friendly staff
We stayed here for my 40th birthday in November 2003. We got a great deal from our local travel agents and just couldn't resist the temptation to go to Lanzarote at such a good price. First foot in the hotel - we were welcomed with open arms from all the staff - what a refreshing change to other hotels we've stayed at!! Our room was a garden suite - could of had our kids and the dog stay in it too, it was that big - got lost in the bed at night - it was that big!! The weather was a let down - not one sunny day (apparently thats not usually the case) - didn't get a chance to wear my bikini or sit by by the pool!
that was the down side of the holiday. The restaurant was full of smiling staff, only too willing to give you a kiss and a cuddle as if you were their long lost auntie. You either liked the attention or hated it!! Entertainment - well ....if you like Abba (which I don't) then that's fine, but don't go here thinking that it has top class entertainment coz it ain't.. what a let down for such a great hotel.
The entertainment team were spot on - so were the reps who worked there - especially the Geordie lad who used to work at The Perigrine in Newcastle, good worker. The quiz kept you sort of entertained, but don't expect a fantastic prize if you get up on the stage, unless you win the money in the box game!!!! I would go here again, but only if the sun was going to be there too. Costa Tequise is quietish, but still a lovely place. loved the Dolphin Inn quiz, good laugh and enjoyed the irish pubs too, with their bit toe tapping music - Lanzarote folk are lovely people - go to Tequise market - great day out, and so is the submarine trip, loved that - ENJOY!!
Nice hotel, quiet resort
My husband and I stayed here for a week in November 2003. We thought the hotel was lovely - no kids, huge, spacious room and friendly staff.
However we were very disappointed by the resort - it was a good 20 minutes walk away and there was a great shortage of bars and restaurants. A lot of shops had a 'closing down' sign outside! Don't go to Costa Teguise if you want to visit a variety of bars and shops.
Playa Blanca had many more nice restaurants and bars, we would stay there if we were ever to return. We found the food average for an hotel, some nights it was great other nights there was nothing on the menu I liked. My biggest critisism is that there is no restaurant open for lunch, only the pool bar. This was not an option for us in November as the weather was extremely windy with heavy rain showers!
Very impressed with Coronas Playa
We spent 2 weeks at Coronas Playa, just got home yesterday. We absolutely loved it. Our room was kept spotless every single day by Nany the chambermaid; and we were always greeted with a hug by Nati the restaurant manager. The rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms are lovely! The food was fabulous, even for awkward me. We chose Coronas Playa specifically because there would be no children around, and it made for a wonderfully peaceful holiday. We could really have done without the entertainment though, but you couldn't say they didn't do their best to keep you happy all the time. If you don't like loud music etc, you would be best to specify a quiet room, and spend your time by the Quiet Pool. There are even resident cats (about seven, although 2 were in season a few days ago, so watch out for the kittens about March-time!) and they will accept all donations of meat and fish!
We didn't go on any of the excursions organised by Thomson because they are outrageously expensive. We had booked our car hire before going, through Holiday Autos, and we went to Timanfaya, the Fire Mountains, on our own. The entrance fee was E6.60 each, as against Thomson's fee of about E40 EACH for the day. Thomson's fee does include a camel ride though, and we didn't do that. For the price of one of their excursions, we had a car for a week, and we do recommend that, because without a car you will miss the best parts of the island. Our favourite view was the Mirador del Guinate - follow the road past the Tropical Park, round to the end - you will love it, especially if the weather is good. We had great weather for most of our stay, and even when it was cloudy it was still OK. We went to Jameos del Agua, which a lot of people rave about, but we were really disappointed. There wasn't much there, and we thought it was really a glorified restaurant where you pay to get in. We loved Puerto del Carmen too, but it seems to have two distinct parts - one part is a bit downmarket and "British seaside town" ish, but the other end is really clean and smart and has plenty of nice restaurants to have lunch in.
When you meet Nati, the restaurant manager, say to her "Hola, colega, que pasa?" - she loves it. Creases up!
Only one word - Fantastic!!!
Met by efficient, friendly staff who made us feel special from the outset and escorted to a very clean and comfortable room with a tremendous view. The dining room staff were beyond description - under the very watchful but friendly eye of Natie, they could not have been more helpful or pleasant. The food was absolutely outstanding.
The location of the Hotel was close enough to the 'buzz' of you wanted it, but yet far enough away for peace and quiet. The 'in house' entertainment was way above our expectations and the Thomson Reps were the best we have encountered by a long way, and they had a programme of events that had something for everyone each day.
We will go back there without hesitation and recommend it frequently to our friends.
Little bit of heaven
fantastic hotel. large rooms with fidge safe hairdryer and they're cleaned daily. location nice and quite. beach is located at the back of the hotel with access. but the beach was rocky a 10 minute walk takes you to several sandys coves and shops. food was excellent and plentyful. all the staff were helpful and friendly. happy hour in afternoon and night with buy 1 get 1 free on all drinks and cocktails.
entertainment was ok. we would recomend hiring a car for a few days to see fire mountian el-golfo and the caves. we would also recomend a ride on the camels once in a life time experience. catch a ferry from playa planca to fuerteventura for 25 euros each and get a taxi to the sandunes in corralejo (5 euros) be prepared for naturists, sands dune were fab and sea was crystal clear. the highlight of our trip was the catalanza gold which had no kids and all the booz and food you could want. sea was chopping but made the trip more interesting and when we mored it was bery still and your could snorkle and feed the fish and you could go on the jet-ski. we had 4 great days of sun shine and 3 cloudy and windy days but we still got sun burned.
Coronas Playa Hotel, Costa Teguise
Stayed at the Coronas Playa Hotel (Thomson Gold) in Jan '03. Very high standard hotel. Good Food, very large spacious rooms, staff pleasant. Entertainment not up to Gold Standard.

... they are brilliant, my son had the time of his life and even got a certificate for best driver of the day.
The weather was lovely and the people friendly. We both had a great time.
(sorry these reviews are short, I'm running out of steam and just want to get started on the main article)
... sun. Not the wind so much and you get dust from the Sahara blowing in which made it impossible to see Lanzarote across the way at times.
I found a relaxed hostel at the north end of town that had a nice back yard and deck leading down to the shore. I didn't get up to much during my time here apart from the beach, sun and cheap food and drink. Caught some of the World Cup matches and the F1 at a local bar, Alis Tavern, run by an Irish lady and her Italian boyfriend that was good ...
... not a bad way to spend my birthday!
Monday 9th June
Its home time today, and to make the most of it, we're up at the crack of dawn and out by the pool again before our 10am shuttle to the airport. I will be sad to leave the sunshine, cactus's and ocean, but will not miss having to dispose of toilet paper in a bin (due to their delicate system)! Adios Lanzarote, hasta luego!
Friday 6th June
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 - ...
... her to return with ice cream :). 4 hours later and still no Em. I had seriously gotten my tan on, napped, read, ate ice cream (people watched around the beach selling it, super convenient) and swam some more. Finally I decided I should probably go look for her because it was getting to around the time when the boys would be coming back from the bike ride and starting the run. Packed up all our stuff and walked up and down the strip looking for ...
