Historical Traveler Reviews San Marcial Apartments Puerto Del Carmen
Wanted to stay outside of Porto Del Carmen, so we stayed in San Marcial, had a lovely one bed apartment which was clean. Lovely pool and very nice staff. It costs €3.30 in a taxi to porto del carmen. It was very hot when we were there are we were able to hire a fan for the week for €15.00. Food in the bar was lovely and very reasonable. Only suggestion I would make it to bring extra towels as they are only changed twice per week. Also see if you can get a balcony, really nice views.
Queríamos alojarnos fuera de Puerto del Carmen, así que nos alojamos en el San Marcial, nos dieron un precioso apartamento de un dormitorio que estaba limpio. La piscina era preciosa y el personal era muy amable. El taxi a Puerto del Carmen cuesta €3.30. Hacía mucho calor cuando estuvimos allí, pudimos alquilar un ventilador por 15 dólares por una semana. La comida en el bar estaba muy bien y el precio era muy razonable. Una sugerencia, yo llevaría toallas de más, ya que sólo las cambian dos veces por semana. Otra cosa, intenta conseguir una habitación con balcón, tienen unas vistas preciosas.
we only booked our holiday a week before we left and having paid only GBP265 each for a week we were relieved to arrive at nice clean spacious apartments. also the airport is so close so it was only a 20 min transfer. we went on the tour operators bus but a taxi would have probably cost less and taken a few mins less too.
My friends and i were moved to these apartments after not being happy with the los zocos in costa teguise. The apartments are beautiful!! Everywhere is so clean and well looked after. Thr pool is quite large, only problem was that is was freezing!
Building work still on going.....Airport very close...10 min walk, making sitting by pool very noisy...poorly equiped kitchen (2 ring hob, microwave and fridge)....No car park...poor security, told gate allowing easy access to beach and shopping area not opened til 10am but was then left unlocked all weekend....Reception staff lost use of english to anyone asking even basic questions...Bad storm one day, rain came in through window frames and had to wait 2 hours for the reception to reopen and then only 1 mop and bucket between all rooms.....Only saving grace was onsite supermarket, lovely fresh cooked bread and pastries, very competative prices
we have just returned from the san marcial apartments, we went 20th january 2005 for 2 weeks.we arrived and was quite pleased it looked basic but very nice little did we know what it would be like.After unpacking and going for a nosy round we returned and everything was fine, got up the next day with loud banging and drilling. At the 4 apartments next to ours they were modernising them little did we know that the work was going to continue for the whole of the 2 weeks.we was never informed of the building work as we arrived and no effort was made to solve this problem.The work started from 9oclock in the morning and continued through out the day it totally spoilt our holiday and we found we went out just to get away from the noise.The hotel manager was very arrogant and made no attempt to apologise or speak to us in any way.We was really looking forward to the holiday as we dont get away much.
hi me and my partner went to the san marcial appartments 9th sept 2004 just for a nice week away, and to be totally honest the appartments and its grounds are really lovely as we usually have really basic when we go away but to be fair they are fab at these appartments ,telly as well ok limited channels but hey they were very clean and comfortable, mind you lanzarote wasnt all i had expected but it was a nice holiday all the same and you have to go on the yellow submarine as well, also the week we went to these appartments we were the only two welsh in the whole resort the rep told us, so go down to scarlets bar in the main matagorda square and you will see our welsh towell hanging over the banister after 8pm in the evening as thats when the bar opens heeeeee,but yep highly recomended to use these appartments very comfy and the pool is great as well,we also walked to perta del carmen from where we were,ok it took 2 hours,but thats stopping in shops on the way as well great walk,but make sure ya have ya trainers as i has blisters ouch heeeeee, teresa
These apartments were wonderful! I went in Sept 2003 with my partner and enjoyed every minute of it. The apartments were clean, relatively modern, large (for two), and cosy. The pool bar was excellent with nice but cheap meals and friendly staff. The simming pool was always clean and certainly large enough for the amount of people there at the time. The entertainment was average, with the betting night being the highlight. It was also a 2minute walk down to the beach, and 5minute walk to a small resurant area. We found ourselves walking along the coastline alot, finding strips of pubs etc, and if you walk far enough you reach a quiet town full of white washed buildings.
It was a lovely location with wonderful apartments, and I would highly recommend it.
¡Estos apartamentos eran maravillosos! Fui en septiembre del 2003 con mi compañero y disfruté cada minuto. Los apartamentos estaban limpios, eran relativamente modernos, grandes (para dos) y acogedores. El bar de la piscina era excelente y servían buenos platos económicos y el personal era agradable. La piscina estaba siempre limpia y sin duda era lo bastante grande para la cantidad de gente que había cuando estuve. El entretenimiento era normal, lo mejor era la noche de apuestas. Sólo estaba a 2 minutos a pie de la playa, y a 5 minutos a pie de una pequeña zona de restaurantes. Íbamos mucho a caminar por la costa, encontramos zonas de pubs etc y si vas lo bastante lejos llegas a un pueblo tranquilo lleno de casas blancas.
After having just returned from the San Marcial Apartments in Matagorda, Lanzarote, I have to say that my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The apartments are ideally located, not too far from the 'town' centre and only a short stroll to the beach. The apartments are spacious, clean and have loads of wardrobe space. Staff were friendly and courteous and the choice of food/drinks at the poolside bar was on the whole, very good. Facilities for the kids included large swimming pool (including kids section and separate small pool), pool tables, football tables, a play park and a great kids club with something for the kids to do every day and night if they wanted. The kids club also arrange days out (minus parents!) so it's great for when you want time on your own. Only problem was the weather - we went in early May expecting it to be lovely. However, due to the strong winds and the overcast cloudy sky, the sun rarely shone through. Beware early May!
