The bedroom has two comfortable beds, and adequate storage space, and as it is at the rear of the apartment, it generally remains fairly cool at night. There is a safe located within the cupboard.

The pool is not generally heated during the winter months.

Although very quiet at night, the apartment is close to all amenities, including various pubs and restaurants, both in the old town, and the main tourist strip.

The harbour is about a five minute walk, and the main beach a further five minutes away.

Immediately outside the complex is a "Superdino". It has recently undergone a refurbishment, and has pretty much everything you will need, including an excellent "Fresh" counter. The prices are amongst the cheapest on the island.

If you intend to hire a car while on holiday, there are no parking facilities on the complex, and theres limited street parking outside, however just a couple of minutes away, there is plenty on street parking available.

There is a bus stop situated about 100 yards from the complex, making it easy to get around the island.

In conclusion, this is a modern apartment within a popular complex, close to all amenities.

About Cameron and Claire Shanks

We are both from Falkirk, in Central Scotland. I am a retired Police Officer and still involved in training of new officers. My wife is a manager with Tesco. We have four children, all in their 20's.

We have been travelling to Lanzarote for years and absolutely love the place. We have many friends on the island, and get over on a regular basis. The children and their partners also love to holiday on the island.

Lanzarote is a beautiful island, and the people are particularly friendly. When we are over, we love our home comforts, and we try to ensure that the apartment is well maintained and presented to a high standard throughout the year.

The property is looked after by Dean and Gill Lee, from Sovereign Property Management, and as you will hopefully see from the reviews, they do a fantastic job in maintaining high standards.

Cameron and Claire Shanks purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Cameron and Claire Shanks chose Puerto del Carmen

We have been travelling to Lanzarote for many years, and in particular Puerto Del Carmen. We had never really thought about purchasing a property, however we heard about this apartment and complex and went to view it. As soon as we walked in we loved the atmosphere and the feel of the complex.

We had a friend view several other complexes and apartments, just to make sure we were doing the right thing, and nothing within our price range came anywhere near La Florida.

All in all, so far, its been a fantastic experience and we just love the island and its people.

What makes this apartment unique

The complex is ideally situated, and is within easy walking distance of all the local pubs and restaurants. Its only a 10 minute walk to the main beach and the tourist strip where there is something for everyone.

This complex offers you the chance to choose exactly what kind of holiday you want. It can be nice and relaxing, and is very quiet at night, but if you like your live music, karaoke, entertainment etc, its just around the corner.

A perfect apartment for a relaxing break👍

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in the old town and we had a fabulous time. I must admit when the taxi dropped us off and indicated for us to go up the slope towards the green door I was a bit worried. But!!! On opening the door we found ourselves in a clean well maintained small complex with a huge pool. Number 314 was spotlessly clean and provided us with everything we might need for a week’s holiday. Our first impression of the apartment was great and the best thing was how bright and spacious the lounge/diner was, the light flooded the room from morning until night. The attention to detail was pleasing - towel and tea towel art and a specially made cushion for the remotes. The apartment is filled with good quality furnishings; unlike others we have previously used in the past. The balcony overlooks the pool and it gets the sun all day. The sunbeds on the balcony were a bonus especially when the weather was a bit changeable, it gave us the opportunity to have a cup of tea or a G&T without having to walk too far. The TV package was also a bonus - not that we stayed in to watch it when you are surrounded by so many bars and restaurants.

I found one of the most relaxing things was not having to do a ‘sunbed dash’ at the crack of dawn just to secure a bed. We could wander down at any time and be sure of having somewhere to sit. Everyone was very friendly. If there was one thing that could have improved our pool side experience, it would been a mattress for the sun lounger. I liked having the option to sit on a chair at a table, which was important for some older guests and those less able.

The apartment is in a perfect position to explore the old town and the harbour and an easy walk into Puert del Carmen. It is on a bit of a hill but my parents aged 77 and 81 managed it. The taxi rank is just at the bottom of the hill and the Biosphere is a 5 minute walk, this contains numerous shops including designer brands and Zara.

The supermarket is less than a minute from the apartment, it contains an extensive range of produce including; fresh meat,cheeses,fresh fruit and vegetables and a bakery. There is really no need to venture any further.

There are so many places to eat and drink whether you want to walk for 1 minute or 1 hour and also lots to do if your feeling more adventurous.

It was a pleasure to use Cameron and Claire’s apartment, they were great hosts who were always available to answer any questions prior to our holiday. We will be back 😊

Fantastic Apartment

Excellent apartment in a perfect location between the marina and the main strip. No problems with gaining access and even managed to arrange a late check out for us on our departure day.

Will definitely stay here on our return to Lanzarote next year.

Fab apartment with brilliant balcony

  • 5 of 5

This was my 4th time in 18months staying here and I just love it! I feel at home there, lovely well equipped apartment which is situated in the old town of Puerto Del Carmen so perfectly situated for the harbour or short walk to strip!

Everything you need is in the apartment and the beds are comfortable! Having WiFi and all the television channels are great too especially if you fancy a day/night in!

Already booked it again for next year!!

Excellent, modern apartment situated in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from an amazing week at this apartment, it is situated in an excellent location within the old town (approximately 5 mins walk to the harbour and 10 mins walk to the strip). It is situated within a gated complex with a large swimming pool and numerous sun beds. Immediately outside the complex is a supermarket and numerous restaurants. The apartment is very modern and spacious with added bonuses of Sky tv and Wifi. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very homely. It consists of a double bedroom, modern bathroom with walk in shower, living room / kitchen with all requirements and a large spacious balcony with sun beds, chairs and table. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and would recommend to others. We will definitely stay here again in the future, thanks again Cameron and Claire.
