Gets better and better !!

"Just back from 2 weeks at Club Las Calas………..we’ve been here many, many times but this is the first time I’ve gotten around to write a review about it.

This resort has improved each time we’ve stayed. The apartments are clean and very comfortable. The whole resort is well kept and managed. The staff are friendly and helpful, every one of them greets you with a friendly smile and ‘Hola’.

There are various onsite facilities if you want them, gym, squash court, internet, etc. The resort is made up of 4 smaller sections and you can always find a quiet corner for relaxing (in fact quite a lot of relaxing!!) Each section has its own pool to take a dip to cool off. There are 2 bars and restaurants, which provide tasty food just a few steps away from your sun lounger. You can order anything off their menus as a takeway, just call your order through and they phone when its ready for pick up, great for the days you don’t want to bother with doing very much.

We find the location ideal in that its only 10 minutes drive from the airport so you can be sipping a cool beer within 30 mins from getting off the plane. It’s perfect for strolling into town each night for a bit of life, plenty of great restaurants, bars and nightlife (if you have the energy). Note however, there are some steep hills around the resort but there are flatter routes through the streets if you have problems with walking. Reception and the other guests can usually point you in the right direction.

If you can, hire a car or take a few trips. Puerto Del Carmen is the busiest resort so there is plenty to keep you occupied but you won’t get the real feel of the island here. There are some great places off the beaten track where you can truly feel you’ve escaped the rat race, just for a day or two : )

A very British part of Lanzarote

"Arriving at the Las Calas apartment complex, I was surprised to see it's location in a very surban part of Puerto del Carmen. Not a bad thing though! Reception was a delight, with Mario taking care of us. We were asigned apartment 313 on the ground floor of Calas 3. The twin bedded room was smaller than expected, but nevertheless comfortable. El Rincon was the nearest, and in our opinion the best restaurant/bar in the complex. The vast majority, if not 100% of the clientelle were British. This made things easy when it came to making friends and for the entertainment, which was good. BBQ evenings, etc were well worth attending, and good value for money, as the entertainment was free.

We hired a car (Astra) for 2 days for €50.00. Exploring the island was a joy. The Green Caves and El Golfo were truly stunning. Beware of other 'attractions', e.g. Jameos del Agua €8.00 per person for looking at a lake full of white crabs, and a swimming pool designed by Cesare Manrique were not good value. A must is a visit to Teguise Sunday Market. The best restaurant we found was very close to Calas. Universo, situated facing the beach, served great food, and was good value too. We tried the more poncy ones at the harbour (5-10 mins taxi ride or 30+mins walking) which were overpriced and took ages to serve you the food.

Overall we loved las Calas, and Lanzarote.

Very comfortable and welcoming

"My second visit to Las Calas, and it maintains the high standard of my visit 5 years ago. The duplex was comfortably furnished, with 3 of us. Very quiet even though near the back road (room 115). Two restaurants with different food options. El Rincon the nicer of the two, with pleassant atmosphere. Staff at the restaurants are both warm and efficient. Good bargains some nights e.g. 20% off on the Saturday and a set 3 courses for 10 euro another night. Not bad considering the pund/euro rate. Lots of restaurants within 10-15 minutes walk. I think room service is available too. Free wi-fi at El Rincon, provided you buy something there- a real bonus as the cyber area PCs have a charge. Probably go back again next year."

Major refurbishment causing loss of facilities

"The complex is undergoing major refurbisment that caused some loss of facilities such as a severly restricted Sky TV service with only Sky news sky sports news and one sky sports channel plus CBS entertainment showing very old american repeats. Whilst this was not a significant problem for my wife and I it will affect families with young children. There was also noisy construction work undertaken on one of the swimming pools directly outside of the appartment.

The hot water supply was somewhat erratic at times and may cause problems in the shower when the temperature swings from warm to very hot.

Even so the appartment was comfortable, clean and well equipped with maid service three times during our one week stay.

It is appoximately ten minutes walk from all of the restaurants and bars on the sea front which offer more choice than the bar/cafe on site.

beyond expectations

"Because of our circumstances we tend to book late and therefore, through RCI, choice is limited. We wanted some sun given the cold winter in the UK so we chose Lanzarote as our experience of Tenerife was not positive. We set out with some trepidation to Lanzarote especially as the snow in the UK was leading to flight cancellations. We arrived in Arrecife airport, went seamlessly through customs and baggage to the cab rank and 10 minutes and 15 euros later arrived at Club Las Calas. A friendly welcome then to our one bed apartment which was comfortable for two ( four would be tight). We ate at The Welcome Inn on the first night. It earns its name and the food was good. The entertainment was fair to middling. The resort was immaculately maintained but was set in a strange position in the middle of suburbs but still only ten minutes from the beach. Go to the old town for food (Bodega Las Tapas was excellent).

Quiet, clean and attractive. Puerto del Carmen is recommended but visit the island by car as the 'tours' are somewhat overpriced. A sceptical couple have been converted.

Nice Friendly resort

"This is a nice resort with friendly staff. The one bedroom apartment was adequate for 2 of us, but would be too small for 4 adults. The apartment was spotless and modern (like it had been recently renovated). It was fully equipped; towels, kitchen appliances, etc. It was welcoming with the dining table set up and a bottle of bubbly, together with milk and water in the fridge and tea\coffee. There is a large flat screen TV, but the TV channels were limited to Sky Sports, Sky news and G.O.L.D, however there was a good DVD player and the resort have a selection of DVDs. The shower was really good with plenty of constant hot water and a shower screen rather than a curtain.

There are 3 pools 2 of which have an attentive life guard on duty all day. We had a meal in the Rubicon restaurant on site and breakfast at the Welcome Inn. Both were fine but I don’t think I’d eat there every day; still the staff were friendly.

On arrival we were allocated a different apartment than the one on the RCI confirmation. We got a shaded ground floor corner unit (309), but were moved to a first floor sunny one (260) when asked to be moved. Reception was fine about it and gave us a choice of alternatives.

The resort is located about 10 minutes walk from the beach, it’s up the hill but not too difficult as the paths wind down the hill and bring you out in the middle of the promenade. Usual mix of eateries, the Lani’s chain of restaurants was too busy and the food was disappointing. For something special head towards the old town and the Biosfera shopping centre, there is a gem of a place called Quintin’s, top quality fine dining.

Still a good resort, clean,friendly helpful staff,good food. Not a lot doing for teenagers though.

"This is our 4th trip here, but first away from main summer season. On this occasion only for a week half-term. We were in a large 2 bed apartment round at the Mimosa pool. Lovely spot, bags of room for a family up to 5. As there were only 3 of us, even better. All the four pool areas,although not large, were spotless. Pools well tended, lifeguards at the main two pools where the main guests and younger children were. Used the El Rincon bistro bar on site most nights, went out off-site for a couple. Food varied and very good, staff courteous and friendly. The downstairs Welcome Inn restaurant not used by us on this occasion, but the on-site pub was. Entertainment mainly based here. It was fine, bit repetative as the acts had similar repertoire. Still OK though. The bars could do with a make over though. Overall a good holiday again here. Infact,a week timeshare in a large 1-bed apartment at Mimosa area had become available for late April/early May at a good price, so I have bought it. Well pleased. This place well good for a visit, with couples or young families. Not so hot off-season for teenagers."

Gold Crown Resort Charging Sun Bed Cushion Hire Charges ?!!

"Stayed here for 1 week during January booked through RCI as a timeshare exchange.

Apartment was clean with adequate furnishings although would have been very cramped for 6 people (lounge area quite small)

All apartments were refurbished in 2008.

Nice flat screen t.v with English channels.

Resort was nice and quiet while we were there (no noisy kids)!

Plenty of evening entertainment for those wanting to participate which we did'nt prefering to go down to the front most evenings.

Only gripe I had was you had to pay to hire sunbed cushions.

I thought this was a bit off for a "Gold Crown Resort"

Diamond Club Las Calas Puerto del Carmen

"Diamond Club Las Calas in Puerto Del Carmen Lanzarote is a good family resort. Rooms & facilities are very comfortable.

Site is undergoing major refurbishment and although there is a little disruption at the moment, pool space is at a premium but come summer 08 - it should be very swish!!! The position of the resort is fantastic - some difficulties if you have difficulty walking but not impossible.

Not happy about security gates being wedged open by contractors. In the light of the "Maddie" McCann case and being a Mum of young kids I was not a HAPPY BUNNY! What is the point of going through the expense of fitting gates if they are not going to be used properly?

There are some weaknesses in Management - one or two guests complained about a neighbours music being on loud and they dealt with it OK (neighbour not too pleased!) another was on the way to security about to complain loud music, use of foul language and rowdy behaviour after midnight (same offender) only to find one of the purportrators to be a female manager who was being escourted out of the apartment in a "well-oiled state". Not for the first time either we believe!

All in all - Las Calas is a good resort but can do better.
