lovely hotel;

Lovely hotel - rooms with 2 large single beds - most have sea view - we were on 5th floor - air conditioning in rooms, tea & coffee making , fridge, tv with BBC1 & 2 Entertainment each night until 11pm but not ideal if you want early night as noisy even on 5th floor Rooms cleaned and towels changed every day Can hire beach towels from reception ( 10 euro deposit) Free wifi for 1 hr each day in bar area only Very quiet area - only one small supermarket across the road and couple of shops - and one small bar where you can eat ( didnt try it though) Need to be all inclusive for food - choice of food usual AIC - always something tasty to eat Courtesy bus to beach running every 30 mins from 9.30 am onwards or 40/45 minute walk

The best thing about my stay was...

clean, modern and friendly staff

1st visit to Lanzarote

The rooms could maybe do with a little updating but we had an extremely spacious room with a very comfortable bed, plenty of hot water and an extremely large balcony. The cleaners were very pleasant and the room was cleaned every day. All the staff in the hotel were pleasant apart from one lady in the restaurant who didn't smile once the whole time we were there! The food was good and there was always loads of choice, I think that they do extremely well catering for all the different nationalities that stay at this hotel. The all inclusive was excellent with the bar remaining open until midnight. A definite plus for me as a non-smoker was the fact that the evening's entertainment was held inside which meant that we could enjoy it without being engulfed in cigarette smoke!! I would not hesitate to book again at this hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

The whole experience.

OK

Clean hotel & rooms, food selection good but only able to get tea and coffee at breakfast??? Lounge and bar area to big and very noisy more like an airport departure lounge with a draught. Entertainment so so but staff tried really hard. Real downside was noise from adjacent rooms every footstep, and flick of switches could be heard. Pleasant stay but wouldn't go there again.

Food, friendly staff.

Not a four star anymore

We found this hotel was a bit tired and at the wrong end of the resort. It was very busy too. We had a few days of rain and there were leaks in the dining room and the reception area. The room was comfortable but not cleaned to a high standard. Wifi was very poor. Reception was understaffed but staff were friendly

The best thing about my stay was...

Location of our room was close to dining hall and reception. Good for children. Shower was a good pressure. Friendly staff

A perfect family get together for my 80th Birthday celebration (29th Feb ) a little early but as it was half term for my grand son in Uni and my grand daughter in 6th form coll. We so enjoyed all about the hotel, the comfortable rooms, the excellent food--so much choice and the heated pool

The best thing about my stay was...

The fact we could not fault a single thing !

Really enjoyable stay

Nice clean rooms, food plentiful, but could have been a bit hotter, bar service very good, excellent staff in all areas. The best being the children`s entertainment team, who were superb. Would recommend here for that alone. Professional entertainment every night, perfect for a family break.

The best thing about my stay was...

Childrens club.

Excellent Hotel in Perfect Family Location

Excellent hotel extremely clean, staff helpful and food is more than adequate. This is the second time we have been to this hotel, and really cannot fault it. With 2 large pools and 3 kids pools, all of which are spotless, kids club, playroom, the list is endless would recommend, as we will most certainly be going back for a third time. Nothing was a problem to them.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff

Stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks with my 3 year old daughter on an all inclusive basis. The entertainment team are great and went out of their way to be helpful. The food was good maybe not restaurant quality but a good selection, although at times inpaticular at breakfast some items ran out. The pools are big with plenty of beds. In all it was a great holiday and I would go back. Would definitely recommend for family's with young children

Isolation

Hotel was nice , not a good as the photos , there was a variety of food not always piping hot . But lots of choices , because our last day we left at 7.15 am , I asked if I could take away a continental breakfast , but was told no rudely . Apart from that we enjoyed our stay , only thing major wrong is there is nothing to do outside off the hotel , you have to taxi , or bus , if you can get on one .

The best thing about my stay was...

The company .

Be Live Lanzarote Resort

If you want a hotel full of kids running around screaming and stuffing hotdogs and chips all day long this would be for you. This was a week before the kids broke up from school so a bit of a surprise to see so many. The food in the restaurant was very poor Luke warm and often burnt if you did not get go in early as soon as it opened the themed food would run out quickly and you would be left waiting till more came out or eat what everybody did not like. I have never seen so much food being waisted as people did not like the quality. At best the food was to a poor 3* standard. This was a very disapointing 10 days.

Simple, Basic, Nice stay but not what i expected

Hotel was huge though I feel a lot more could be done with it, did not meet my exceptions,very standard (does what it says on the tin) Pictures advertised before booking gave me false hope not what i expected from seeing pictures. The staff/people are very friendly. Was quiet disappointed with the pool area where sun loungers were as it was not very clean also I didn't like the fact that everyday we had to wait hours (despite getting down early) to get a clean/decent spot together around the pool area as sun loungers had been reserved with guests towels even though there were signs specifically saying not to do so. We then ended up going to the beech which was lovely. The only real complaint would be the state of one of the toilet facilities as i walked in in my flip flops and then noticed the floor was soaking as if the toilets had been leaking it had an awful spell and all toilets were unclean like they had not been checked, Limited WiFi (30 mins a day), and no irons so had to pay additional amount for clothes to be pressed. Please do not make this dishearten you as it is a nice place, may be for some but just not for me, Overall basic, nice but the need to improve on cleanliness in many areas of the hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

A bus ride away from central locations

IT WAS OK

Not a bad hotel but not a four star!!!! Food in restaurant cold had to warm breakfast up in microwave!!! plenty to choose from if you want vegetables and salad from night before and you could also have chips for breakfast. The only thing that was warm was the coffee from the machine. Expect to get up early and I mean 6.00am to get your sunbeds. Rooms are clean and cleaned regular. Staff friendly and the daily entertainment was good. If you want a hotel within walking distance from centre a bit far to walk but there are taxis directly outside which cost about 4 euros one way. Also the room we had was adjoined to next room with a door that you could hear the people in next room talking and see light they had on at night.

Clean and friendly

Fab for kids

Kids club amazing 10-1300, 1500-1700 and then at evening 1900 your kids can go to dinner with them until 2030 so you can eat alone and then the disco is on which you can use whichever sessions you want all included in price of hotel only thing is hotel not by anything so you either are walking half hour to the nearest town or getting a taxi or are at the hotel it's not like you can just easily flit between the two so after a while feel like cabin fever food can become very samey as always on an AI but eating out is cheap anyway best fillet steak will only cost u about £8!

A great hotel for families

Had 2 weeks at this hotel and had a great holiday. I was a bit worried with some of the negative reviews but they were unfounded the food is fine typical AI and I have stayed in many. The rooms are lovely I had a superior on the 5th floor great sea views great hair driers but the cleaning schedule is a bit chaotic and not consistent. It is great for young families with loads to do.

Had a wonderful time !

After reading a few reviews before I went I was a bit worried..... I am quite a fussy person but thought this hotel was excellent value for money. It is a family hotel so probably wouldn't suit elderly people. The grounds /pool area were very pretty. Lots of food to choose from so always found something. The staff are just lovely... They really made our holiday. Most of the shows were fantastic. And everything was cleaned daily. Great size room and view. I would recommend this for a family fun holiday

It was ok

The hotel was nice enough for a weekend away. The restaurant was a bit cramped and I think too small really for the size of the hotel, and the layout of the buffet a bit confusing. The staff worked so hard they didn't stop and the food was ok. Only I think one English tv channel only the rest Spanish, however it is possible to change the language to original version when for example an American film is on, and it would help the guests a lot to know this is possible so the hotel should be instructions in the room to tell guests this as this would stop a lot of moaning from the Brits. All in all ok, but we wouldn't hurry back.

The best thing about my stay was...
