Have booked a twin room we were disappointed to be given a double room. Out room faced a blank white wall and the balcony got little sun. We asked for a room change but were shown a studio, with a balcony in the shade and a double bed plus a bed that needed pulled down at night. Having seen the disappointing room we went to dinner- it was the worst selection of unappetising food I've ever seen. Although we were booked Half Board we ate out every night. The rooms and pool areas were very clean...but this didn't make up for the poor room location and awful food.
We went the 1st week in Feb and the downside was the weather ...it was cold grey and very windy so ended up staying in our room far more than expected! Everyone was saying how bad the weather had...
We went the 1st week in Feb and the downside was the weather ...it was cold grey and very windy so ended up staying in our room far more than expected! Everyone was saying how bad the weather had been. Through Cosmos we booked a studio room. If you want a view DON'T BOOK A STUDIO!!! We were presented with a white wall! This was at the back and around the corner from all the other rooms that surrounded the pool. All the other rooms one way or another looked out towards the sea. Asked to change to a pool view, a young man on reception told us we couldn't as we had booked through Cosmos and a studio was all we could have!! After paying nearly £1K we expected a bit of a view. On the upside the room was a brilliant size. As it was late we stayed in the room that night. We contacted our rep the next morning and told him the tale we had been told, which he thought was really bizzare. He rang us back within the hour and said we could have another room facing the lagoon. And at an extra cost of course! Bar the one young man, who we didn't see again until the Saturday we checked out, the rest of the reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. We were advised to book directly with the hotel next time as we could then choose our room location. The food was good and plentiful, smoked salmon for breakfast mmmm... and different choice of main meat every night. It was such a shame the weather was so bad as I would have loved to sample the lovely pools. We would go again though perhaps later in the year.

My friend and I have just returned from the Sands Beach Resort and have to say we were very impressed with the location, and the apartment was very clean and very spacious. The food in the Hacienda restaurant was very good and the staff were very helpful. Would definitely return but maybe in the summer as the weather let us down worst winter we were told in 30 years, we had 40 miles an hour winds and very little sun.
Lovely accommodation. Our apartment was a great size for the two of us with plenty of space to rattle around in. Fittings starting to look a bit tired though but everything worked fine. Outside is...
Lovely accommodation. Our apartment was a great size for the two of us with plenty of space to rattle around in. Fittings starting to look a bit tired though but everything worked fine. Outside is well maintained and looked after with a lot of painting of the white surfaces going on while we were there. We were SC so can't vouch for the catering as we ate out all the time. Pools were very cold at this time of the year. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Shop onsite is ok but other supermarkets were a little bit cheaper
Many people come on holiday to Lanzarote in winter due to it’s renown as a perennially sunny hotspot, with blue skies and winter temperatures averaging around 18° Celsius. It’s the summer peak that the island is famed for though when temperatures soar to around 28° Celsius. If you’re too hot, splash into the pool or get some watersports in on the beach!
