"shopping in Puerto Del Carmen"

Overall Resort Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

The beach is just across the road from the hotel and you can walk for quite a way in both directions. If you like cycling there are miles of safe cycling paths. It is possible to walk on the beach and coast path to the airport. The shops are mainly on one road and there is plenty of choice.

"Villa Jennifer Pto del Carmen"

Overall Resort Rating:

Excellent

Open quote

The resort of Puerto del Carmen is in out opinion excellent. No rowdy hooligans, quiet peaceful, a little bit of nightlife - just right for us, but of course everyone's expectations are different. The beaches are super clean, and the sea is crystal clear, lots of room on the main beach, and you can pop over the road for a late luch as we did. It's a lovely peaceful walk along the re-modeled prom - with it's wide walkway for almost two miles. Lanzarote has to be by far the cleanest and most pretty of the four main Canary Islands, and the low rise all white houses, make it very picturesque.per week for a three door run around. Car Hire is so cheap about £100.00

"Relaxed"

Overall Resort Rating:

Good

Open quote

Stunning beach opposite just across the road from the hotel but not a great deal else in the resort. That suited us though. If you like watching planes you will be very happy...I was. You can walk two miles up the beach or through the resort and watch from about 20metres from the end of the runway under the landing lights.

Really didn't need to go out of the hotel much as were well catered for. Beach good and clean, but no sunbeds or shades available at time of travel.

"Usual holiday resort"

Overall Resort Rating:

Good

Open quote

We only went out a couple of times, once for a meal to a Italian for my birthday which wasn't good, we picked this restaurant as it was busy, usually a good sign, but a rip off, food was poor and over priced, one small slice of garlic bread was 3 euros, what annoyed us more was been charged for water bread that was just put on the table and enough been charged for a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese so watch out, this apart the whole area was very nice

Very easy to either use the local buses or talk a nice walk into the town from the hotel. Variety of shops and most people very friendly but not pushy.

"Picollos is quiet and has large clean be"

Overall Resort Rating:

Good

Open quote

Picollos is a quiet area just outside Carmen and has a very large long beach. We went at the end of May and into June but there were no facilities on the large beach other than the sea. There was always a strong wind blowing - same as all the Canary Isles - and wind and sand meant very few people actually went on the beach. However it looks very nice and at either end of the beach there were places to eat and drink at very reasonable prices. Overall it is a very quiet restort and nice for long walks in either direction along the beach front. Many people used the area for cycling and jogging and the climate is good for this.

Lots of cafes, restaurants and shops, although quiet at this time of the year, it is probably busy and lively in high season.

long stretch of bars and eating places, centre and one end nr music tavern was nice, didnt like it much at other end nr marina, found it a bit scruffy and smelly, beware that quite a few places that seem a reasonable price for food charge a lot for drinks and slap a 7% tax on top

"los picillos"

Overall Resort Rating:

Good

Los picollos was a good walk from Carmen centre, or by regular bus. Taxi was good price. At los picollos there was a nice promenade walk for a few miles. There are plenty of shops, bars, cafes,etc closeby, so most times no need to go into Carmen
