Historical Traveler Reviews Aparthotel Blue Sea Los Fiscos Puerto Del Carmen
When we arrived we were very disheartened when we realised we had to go up and down 4 flights of stairs to get to our apartment and this was every time we left the apartment, not easy with 2 small children, buggy and bags if we went to the beach. The pool is exceptionally deep very dangerous for children the childrens pool is part of adults pool and this is approx 3 foot deep the baby pool is 1 foot deep I expected thewater in the baby pool to come to my ankles but it nearly hit my knees much to deep for my 2 year old - he had to wear arm bands in this pool.
I stayed at Los Fiscos with my college, it was in a great location as you could walk down the hill to various supermarkets.
The taxi's are great too, we went to the strip of bars and clubs every night and it only cost around 4 euros and split between five was brilliant.
I recommend the purple turtle pub which is run by english people who are fantastic the food is lovely as well.
The apartments were clean and basic and thats all we needed as we were only really using it as a place to sleep.
Definately do the excursion to mount timanfaya its well worth it but do not get to put off by the coach drivers.
Overall a nice stay.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from our very first sun holiday. We stayed in Los Fiscos Apartments, situated in the old town.I have to say, being the last to get dropped off the coach was a good thing having seen some of the places others were staying. The entrance to the hotel is lovely, very welcoming indeed. We were given a ground floor apt on arrival and did ask for a room with a balcony but there were none available. A short walk to the apt but some steps up and then down again, ok for us 25+27 but maybe not for some. It was a nice sized apt with 2 bathrooms and air conditioning in the bedroom. The pool area is fab, with 2 levels to lounge on, loads of beds, and great views. The bar is situated here but anytime we sunbathed it was closed, so we had to bring up our own drinks. The entertainment isn't great, it starts at 9.30 and goes til 11. Perhaps in peak season it's extended. We had cleaners every day except for Mon and Fri. Whenever we needed a cab they'd ring and they were quick to come, bout e2.00 to harbour and 2.50 to new town. There's also a weighing machine to check your luggage which costs e1.00 per bag, very handy when you think you may have overdone it with the shopping!
Not so good!
We got a room full of mould and when in was raining outside, it also rained into the apartment. When we complained, we were not offered another room and no other compensation.
The breakfast should have been included but we had to argue before it could be arranged.
I would not recommend this hotel to anybody at all!
Would go back
We had booked a double room but were given an apartment on arrival which was a pleasant surprise. It was well fitted out but bedspread and sofa bed in the lounge could do with updating. Found breakfast choices good and plentiful but were not so keen on dinners. Ended up having dinner in La Bamba which is very close to the hotel. Excellent food, friendly waiters and reasonable prices - definitely recommended. Staff in hotel were friendly and helpful, especially Conchi on Reception. Steep hill was no real problem to us (couple in their late 50s/early 60s and not super fit!). In fact we never used the courtesy bus but chose to walk. Would stay there again.
They've had a lot of rain in Lanzarote this month, maybe that's why the apartment was damp and smelly. We asked to be moved to another apartment and they were happy to arrange this but unfortunately, the second apartment was also damp and smelly and no amount of air freshener could clear it. Shame really because the food was ok and the staff quite friendly. We tried the on-site entertainment one night - really funny - though I don't think it was supposed to be!
I have just arrived home from Lanzarote, thoroughly burnt and an enjoyable holiday had.
I stayed at this hotel in January 2004. It was a cheap and cheerful break after christmas and new year. We are a young couple and liked the hotel a lot. I thought the breakfast and dinner was nice enough, the entertainment was just your typical hotel stuff, we used to venture down to the bars in the resort as they were more our thing. Can be a bit of a pain sometimes as we would wait ages for a taxi down to the bars, sometimes the taxi's did'nt turn up so a bit of a trek in heels!!! but I knew the hotel was a bit out of the way when we booked so carn't really complain.
As my wife is a teacher we grabbed the chance of a cheap and cheerful half-term break with our daughter and her partner, 12 -19th Feb 2005. Los Fiscos was excellent. Clean rooms, with sitting room, small kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. reception staff friendly and helpful, especially calling the airport several times when one of our cases did a bit of detour in Madrid. OK so it's a steep hill back up from the town, walks off the dinner and keeps the area quieter. Breakfast had a really good choice, varying each day. Pool was heated.
I,ve stayed here twice and would love to go back.Its at the top of the old town(up a very steep hill)but i love it up there.A few lovely resurants and bars are nearby and its only a 20min walk to the new town.As with most places in Lanzarote its very clean.It has limited entertainment in the evenings and the pool bar opens until about 11 oclock.The price of your stay includes breakfast but i didnt think it was worth getting out of bed for.There is a little cafe at the end of the street where you will get a nice breakfast.You cant miss it,all the local taxi drivers and police eat there.The first time i was there,there was 8 lads and it was july.We thought it was going to be too quiet but we all had a ball.Even ugly mate scored.Next time was with Girlfriend last february.She loved it.We were put in a 2 bedroom apt for some reason.it was on the top floor and had lovely views.the bottom line is that it is a good place to stay.quiet but not dead in feb,but high season is great fun
