We had a lovely holiday here! The drinks were great and there was always lots of food to choose from. The hotel gardens are really nice and the overall standard of the hotel is really good! The reception staff were so helpful and friendly. The maids always went the extra mile each day - the towel art was amazing! The hotel is just around the corner from the beach and all the shops, bars and restaurants. Overall, we'd definitely recommend staying here. Thanks Olé Olivina!
A very clean and excellent hotel in a great location with friendly staff and great amenities. Very close to the town center with shops, bars and restaurants. The hotel is right on the sandy beach and sheltered from the wind. The buffet breakfast was superior with a great variety of hot and cold food and beverages which also provided a wonderful view of palm trees and the Atlantic Ocean. We enjoyed our time there very much and would definitely return.

To celebrate my girlfriend's birthday, we decided to have a week away in Lanzerote.
After much searching of resorts, we decided on Puerto Del Carmen, and thought we'd give the Gloria Izaro a try. We were not disappointed!
The complex is situated nice and away from the 'All Day Breakfast', 'Sky Sports' bars, and those annoying people standing on the streets handing out flyers for clubs and free drinks!
It's less than a five minute walk down the hill to the harbour/marina/old town area, which has some nice restaurants (highly recommend Casa Roja!), but should you feel compelled to venture into the other end of town (Costa Del Margate), this is only a ten minute walk.
As for the hotel complex, we couldn't fault it. The apartments were spotlessly cleaned, the staff were always on hand and were very helpful, and you got the sense that nothing was too much trouble for them to do for you.
The complex has a lovely pool, a very friendly atmosphere, and as it is on the edge of a residential area, is also nice and peaceful.
If you're after a 24-hour party place, go somewhere else. If you want a relaxing break, with or without children, look no further.
The toughest decisions I had to make all week were, what to choose from the fine variety of food available, and which side of the pool to lay by all day. Lovely.
"Location is excellent, just 5km from the airport"
Hubby and I just arrived back yesterday from a 10 night stay.Check in was speedy, we were in our suite within ten minutes. Had a great laugh with the receptionist about her being a dead ringer for Cheryl Cole ! We hired a car as we wanted the option of travelling around but we needn't have bothered; the airport was only a 10 minute drive, and buses run frequently to Arrecife, Puerto del Carmen centre and Costa Teguise from bus stops just 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The bus to Arrecife took 15 minutes, buses are spotless, drivers are friendly. Main roads are great to drive on- not a pot hole in sight! The weather was cloudy on a few mornings and temps ranged from 18-25 degrees. A chill from the wind meant having to wear a sweater some days, but on the whole pretty good for April. Hotel asks for a credit card on check in. Not a problem for me as I'd brought mine for the hire car but people should be made aware of this on booking. Quite disappointed in the Chill Out Zone's bar and pool as it was advertised as adults only but there were children in the pool and drinks not included in the all inclusive. The Coral buffet/bar was open 10.30-6pm,not much choice of food. If you want a fruit smoothie get your wallet out as that's extra but if you want rum and coke, or other short drink it will be half rum and half coke- very generous pouring!!!! Evening entertainment team was energetic. Food was plentiful and fresh in the 2 restaurants but not hot enough.
The Hotel is situated in a quiet position but within walking distance to the lively part of the town. Across the road is a large beach.
Hotel staff are amazing and cant do enough to help. Very friendly.
Room was very clean and had most of the comforts of home.
Air conditioning was a nice bonus.

Club del Carmen is the most popular resort on Lanzarote, Spain, and is ideally situated only two minutes away from some of …More
The island’s biggest and busiest resort has two very different faces. Along the beachfront is a three-kilometre long, unbroken strip of shops, restaurants and night spots. By contrast, the old port is a picturesque spot busy with fishing and pleasure boats, and overlooked by restaurants and bars, many occupying a lofty balcony position on the hill. Adjacent, the swish marina of Puerto Calero offers excursions by yacht, submarine or catamaran.
