Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Playa Blanca many times prior to this visit, but not for about seventeen years.

Having searched long and hard for my perfect accommodation - 'perfect' being in the main town of Playa Blanca, sea view, decent balcony, near a supermarket, and within easy walking distance of one of the two main beaches - I found the Roca Mar 1 Apartment on Owners Direct.

I made the booking with a 50% deposit, then paid the balance, plus a €150 breakage deposit, on arrival (standard procedure for this type of accommodation).

Detailed video I took of the apartment:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CsLm2f38XE

We were greeted by the owner's representative, Pam, who went through all we needed to know about the apartment and the area. Pam also gave us a discount card which entitled us to a 10% discount when eating at the owner's restaurant - Da Vinci - plus a couple of other restaurants in the area.

The facilities within the apartment were more than adequate for our needs:

Comfortable beds - one double, one single, both in the bedroom

Shower

Microwave and hotplate

Plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils

Full-sized fridge

Washing machine

Iron/ironing board

Wall-mounted drying rack on balcony

Free Wi-Fi

TV and DVD player

Safe (with key)

Spacious living area with dining table and four chairs, coffee table and comfortable sofa

Small east-facing balcony

HUGE south-facing balcony (with views across to Fuerteventura) with dining table and four chairs, sunbeds and reclining chairs

Towels provided

Beach towels provided

There are two supermarkets - Spar and HiperDino - directly behind the apartment.

The town taxi rank is located behind the apartment and there is some noise, as you'd expect. I always take ear plugs or listen to music while falling asleep, so this was not an issue for me.

There are a vast number of superb restaurants within easy walking distance of the apartment, absolutely spoilt for choice.

Absolutely perfect!

Central location more suited to the hard of hearing.

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival our first impression of the apartment was that it was basic but serviceable. No effort had been given towards the welcoming finishing touches, like perhaps a bottle of water and some fruit or even a cheap bottle of wine which we have received from every other place we have rented. I was also disappointed to find there were no kitchen or bathroom cleaning products cleaning products, no hand soap or shower gel. These kind of things always get left behind by previous guests - we left washing powder, bleach, washing up liquid, hand soap and shower gel behind. So our first port of call was off to the supermarket before we could even have a cold drink or use the bathroom after a long journey.

The apartment generally didn't feel well cleaned so after sweeping up a lot of dust, fluff and other peoples hair we bleached the floors of every room before unpacking.

The bedroom at night with stiflingly hot the air-conditioning was far too noisy to have on so we had to opt for windows open and the fan to make it bearable.

With the taxi rank directly outside the apartments bedroom there is a queue of approximately 150 people continuously from around 10 PM till 3:30 AM every single night and the noise from this crowd made it virtually impossible to get any sleep at all. The later it got the more drunk the crowd becomes and the noisy they get. I mentioned this to whoever returned my damage deposit at the end of the holiday and her response was "wear earplugs" - what a romantic setting that would be.

The balcony was lovely and big and was good for sunbathing and a bit of people watching, although the paint was flaking off all over the place and need a good clean.

I've stayed all over Lanzarote for the last 25 years and I know there are much more tranquil and pleasant places to stay for the money it cost. I'm afraid we won't be returning to this apartment.

I'm not one to moan and leave unnecessary reviews but I do feel it's justified in this case.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, We want to thank you to take the time to share your comments with us, which we will take all in consideration as we always keep improving. This is the first time we have a complaint about the cleaning and we regret we haven´t got any call from you as we would send the cleaning lady to clean again what ever was not correct. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we encourage all our guests to call us any time if anything is not done correctly, as we are 24 hours on call. We do not leave gel or shampoo, but we do leave cleaning products for kitchen and washing machine. Water and fruit baskets are a courtesy and I´ll make sure to find out if this weren´t placed at your check in. When you accommodated in the apartment, there have been the local festivities in Playa Blanca with a music concert on the beach just down your terrace. The event was done by 24.00 The taxi rank in town center might make some noise. Some of our guests that keep coming for over 4 years to our apartment recommend to use ear plugs if you are a light sleeper, you can read about this, in the guests feedbacks, as well about the cleaning and the service. At the time of your stay, Calima " sand of the Sahara " was very intense, unfortunately, it doesn´t matter how deep you clean, the sand will get inside the apartment as soon as you open the windows or the sliding doors and having " A sea front terrace " makes impossible to keep the terrace clean of sand. Both of aparments get painted every year as well any other maintenance works need it. We improve every year our standards and we like to keep improving. As I have mentioned previously, we appreciate your feedbacks as it helps us to be better every day. We would like to take this occasion to send you as well our best wishes. Best regards, Juan Medina.

Great balcony and view

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable with the facilities you'd expect. The kitchen is pretty basic with no oven and only a dual hob and microwave so if you like to cook it's a bit limited. Also some condiments, tea, coffee would have been nice. Having said that there are ample good restaurants about. The apartment is located central to all amenities and you can be on the beach, in a bar or restaurant in 60 seconds, however the busy taxi rank located directly outside the bedroom is really noisy all night. Not only noise from customers queuing but from the taxi drivers talking loudly all night, 2 - 6 in the morning.

The apartment is all about the sun terrace with it's great view which is really good during the day and early evening.

To sum up, nice apartment with great views but if you like your sleep, maybe not for you.

Owner's Response: Dear Peter, We would like to thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are sorry you have trouble sleeping, sometimes the taxi rank could be a little noisy in the summer. To be in heart town centre above the sea has some limitations. The kitchen in this apartment was thought as " kitchenette " and all the appliances provided are on the web site. We are happy to know you have enjoyed the beautiful view and we will take your feedbacks in consideration for future improvements. Our best wishes, Juan Medina

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned home after spending a fabulous 2 weeks at the Rocamar apt. It has everything you need, perfect location with a huge balcony overlooking the sea. Shops and restaurants right on your doorstep. We ate a few times at the Da Vinci restaurant which is situated below the apt. Food was excellent and even better you get 10% discount when you stay in the apt. Staff was lovely and so friendly. Would not hesitate to come back to Playa Blanca and stay at this lovely apartment. Many thanks from Pauline& Roger

Paul and I stayed in this lovely apartment 30/3/2017-6/04/2017.We were absolutely blown away by the balcony and the views. There are loads of great restaurants close by, including Da Vinci downstairs the food is great.Thanks to Barbara and Pam always on hand ready to help with anything. We will definitely be coming back and we are already missing the sound of the sea and watching the boats.Once again thank you for a perfect holiday. Julie and Paul.

Fantastic location great apartment

  • 5 of 5

As I am writing this review my Husband and I are sitting on the large balcony of this apartment on our last full day of our holidays and what a great holiday we have had ,

Pam and Barbara have been fantastic nothing is to much trouble for them ,when my Husband first found out that there wasn't a BBQ at the apartment he was a litte disappointed but Pam came to the rescue by lending us an electric hot plate /grill and a long extention lead so my husband could cook his steaks right on the front of the balcony overlooking the Atlantic ocean ,needless to say he only used it twice the whole holiday (Boys with toys comes to mind ) and only yesterday we had a problem with the safe not being able to open and a phone call to Barbara she was there within 10 minutes to our rescue once again we thank you ,

my husband and I have been blessed with being able to travel all around the world ,America, Canada , Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, The Caribbean , Greece, turkey, Egypt ,Spain the Baleric islands and of course the Canary islands and the thought of a small town called playa Blanca draws us back to Lanzarote time and time again and now that we have found the perfect apartment in the perfect location we will be coming a lot more often ,thanks once again to Pam and Barbara for all your Help

Kind Regards Dawn & Alan
