Costa Sal Villas and Suites
36 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
just home from Costa Sal Matagorda
"First time in Lanzarote. What a complex. We were in a two bedroom bungalow. Plenty of room for 4. Spotlessly Clean. Fabulous bathroom, think it must have been recently refurbished. Kitchen basic but with fridge freezer and ceramic hob.All we needed.
Visited friends in one bed appts. They had obviously been refurbished too with lovely walk in showers.
Staff were friently, spoke English and were very helpful.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Will return if I come back to the island. The heatwave was difficult and restricted activities. Great holiday. "

"Just back from a wek at costs sal , its quite simple the general complex and pool is good the restaurant is ok the staff are fairly friendly . dont pay for the wifi it doesnt work its very very slow and not worth it we got a refund .The actual apts are terrible believe this honest review . We stayed there with 11 month old baby we had to clean whole apt when we arrived there was a thick layer of dust on everything the cot provided was old dirty and not safe for baby we only found out when too late that better apts than ours are available but our was horrible doors and windows sticking old and atty furniture smeeled and was tatty and out of date Costa sal does not deserve 3 star rating do not go plenty of better places available for same budget I stayed in 2 star place before baby came along and they were much better than here . Avoid please."

"I have just returned from 1 weeks stay at the Costa Sal Apartments in Matagorda. After reading reviews i was unsure but thought i would make up my own mind on them. Well i have to say that i was really impressed with the whole complex, very clean and tidy. The pool was beautiful and spacious. The grounds within the complex were very well kept. The rooms were lovely but the bathroom was a bit disappointing, not very up to date but had shower and bath. The shower was broke when we arrived but we reported it to reception and it was fixed within the hour. Cleaners came every day and they never annoyed us, they just worked away done there job and out again. We didnt eat in the resturant but the bar was lovely and they have a happy hour from 4 to 7 everyday, which was great. Over all i would highly recommend the Costa Sal and would go back again no problem."

"Well we just got back from a great hol today,after reading the reveiws we did not know what to expect but we thought we would make our own mind up.The bungalow was lovely,clean, and spacious.we were 2 adults 3 children,and friends staying in an apartment which was just as nice, a very quite complex ,plenty of room at the pool each day ,we felt very safe ,code to enter on and off complex,security guards walking around at night,ideal for all. A five minute walk to beach,supermarket, and resturants.Main town was a half hour walk away but only 4 euro in a taxi.which was not to busy before 11pm.The highlight of our childrens holiday was watching the planes landing and taking off it was a ten minute walk to the run way kids loved it,you may think it would be noisey but it there was very little noise.It was ideal for pushchairs and wheelchairs to walk along the beach front.There was only one down side and that was no childrens nightly entertainment at the complex only a parrot show on tuesday night which started at 11pm rather late .We did enjoy the cowboy night in rancho texas.Water park was not very big and a lot of money.All hotel staff were very helpful and extremly friendly a great family holiday for all."

"I have been going to Lanzarote every year at the same time and same place (Costa Sal) with my mum, dad and sister for 14 years and I love it :]:]:]:]:]. There is so much to do and the beach is so close. There are to swimming pool which makes it so good. I dont think that i could go to Lanzarote and not stay in the Costa Sal complex. We have a timeshare there which makes it even better. We have never in 14 years of going to Costa Sal had any problems with anything. We love Costa Sal and Lanzarote."

"just returned from a week at the cost sal in matagorda, my twin girls age 12 loved it, we found the apartments clean and very well equiped, although we were half board we had a kitchen area in the apartment which i think had not long been installed, lovely ceramic hob and oven, fridge freezer, microwave, even an iron and ironing board. The breakfast was self service, basic but adequet, the evning meal was 3 courses with about 4 choices of each starter, main and dessert with the menu changing on a daily basis, tuesday is barbacue night with plenty of choice, the staff were very friendly and helpful, although the cleaners were like billy whizz, in and out in about 3 minutes, i would say the only downside was the lack of evening entertainment but the sol lanzarote just down the road was excellent. All in all a well enjoyed break, inexpensive and would definately consider returning. "

"Have been staying in the Costa Sal every year since 2002. Spent 7 days in May 08.
Security is still very good but appartments have became quite run down. Have not been painted for years. Not a lot of maintance being done. No hot water in the mornings when its cloudy as its heated by solar panels. No back up heating system.
Appartment when we arrived were not well cleaned. Fridge was de frosted and floor was flooded in the kitchen.
Equipment is still good with kettle,toaster, Coffee maker supplied. Not a lot of cutlery supplied with few drinking glasses.
Good parking if you hire a car.
Security Box in every appartment at extra charge.

"Although very quiet, it was pleasently so, an ideal get away for that much needed rest before the x-mas rush. We will definatley consider visiting again next year.
The apartment was spacious enough and the facilities plentiful, with the added bonus of a clean pool.
although being very quiet, you are only a taxi ride away from the busier local resorts and ammenities."

"Not a bad place to go and chill out but thereâs not a lot of activity happening. However worth its money.
If you are the relaxing type then this could be the holiday for you. Taxis are available to take you to other resorts for shopping and dining."

"Accommodation was really dated. Can't believe this is a 'Timeshare'.
Everything was dated, included 3 bouquets of dried flowers, collecting dust! Veranda furniture was filthy and only had one room clean in the 7 days.
Pool was freezing and furniture well worn and dirty.
3 points rating for staff on reception for being friendly.
Does anyone know of any decent time share accommodation in Lanzarote?
Local market square looked as if it was falling down but the food was good."
