Just 6kms from the airport, the complex has everything you and your family need to enjoy a relaxing stay on one of Spain’s most picturesque islands.
Whether it’s lying next to the pool or enjoying the magnificent nearby beach, you’re mind and body will thank you for rewarding it with a comfortable time. But it’s not just relaxation that the Barcarola Club Apartments strives for; it’s fun! Here, you can try your hand at some different activities, including rifle shooting, table tennis, and giant chess. This, along with plenty of nightly entertainment, will ensure that you and your loved ones will never be bored on your special holiday.
Guests also have access to a number of services, too, for added ease of mind; these include a laundry service, free Wi-Fi, and a mini-club for young children. Located nearby to the hotel are supermarkets, stores, and recreational hotspots, including a golf course.

Room Information and Room Facilities
The 83 spacious rooms of the Barcarola Club Apartments resort come with one or two bedrooms (18 have two) and all the added amenities expected of a three-star hotel, including satellite television, safe, telephone, and free Wi-Fi. Every room comes with a balcony or terrace with a view of the garden or pool, which ideal for early evening relaxation before you head out for the evening.
Expansive with plenty of seating options, the apartments also include a well-equipped kitchen, which means you have the choice of staying in to prepare your own meals. Families travelling with children should opt for an apartment with two bedrooms, which will ensure you can create a home away from home.
Facilities, Entertainment, Activities
With so much to do at Barcarola Club Apartments, the difficult thing will be finding the time to relax among all the fun you’re having! When you’re not rifle shooting, you’ll be having a family tournament of billiards or boules. If not that, you’ll be playing table football or giant chess.
When you want to step it up a notch or two, head just out of the resort to the beach, where you can indulge in some of the activities you’ll only be able to try on holiday, including windsurfing, diving, fishing, or playing a round of golf under guaranteed sunshine. If you’re more a pool person, then you’ll enjoy the large pool with plenty of sun loungers for you to relax on, while your kids will love tiring themselves out at the on-site children’s playground.
After a hard day’s of activity, you and your family can spend the warm summer night unwinding at the resort, which offers entertainment six nights a week.
Food and Drink Options
With your very own kitchen located right in your apartment, you won’t have to travel too far to have a memorable evening of culinary delights. Simply head down to the local supermarket, pick up some fresh fish, and have a meal right on your balcony under a setting sun.
But you don’t always have to prepare your own meals, either; the buffet restaurant will take care of your breakfast, while the Bar Piscina — a small bar located next to the swimming pool — will be on hand to prepare the snacks you need to get through the day, as well as a few alcoholic drinks to make your stay extra relaxing.

17 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Four adults have just returned from a holiday at the Barcarola Club. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was on the first floor in an excellent position overlooking the swimming pool. It was nicely furnished with sufficient equipment and the cleaner came in every day and kept the apartment in excellent order. the reception staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about facilities, transport and nearby amenities. The swimming pool and surrounding area was also cleaned fastidiously every day.On our leaving day we were allowed to stay in our apartment until 7.30p.m. when our transport arrived, this concession was very much appreciated."

"Have just come back from a week in Lanzarote and stayed in Barcarola.. have to say it was such a great place to stay, the staff are so friendly, we had our 4 year old DD with us and they were just so attentive to her. The place is so clean too. The only negative thing is the pool, it is absolutely FREEZING, but then again we didn't have great weather so that didn't help. But I think it should be heated a little! Will definitely be going back.. "

Friendly staff and well-tended gardens
"My partner and I stayed here in March 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked the hotel and got cheap flights from Easyjet.
The apartments are very nicely arranged in two-storey blocks (see my photos). It is an idyllic place to spend time relaxing, with restaurants and shops on your doorstep. Bars are a little further away, in the CC Atlantico and other shopping centres dotted along the road (Avenida de las Playas).
The pool was extremely cold, even though the weather was hot. They could do to heat it up! I realise it was March, but there was almost ice in the pool. However, lying by the pool was bliss. You canât hear any noise from the surrounding area, just the twittering of the birds in the trees above you.
No kettle in the apartment â just a coffee machine that doesnât get hot enough, so we used a pan instead. Satellite tv only had BBC World News and Eurosport in English. Thankfully, we had a dvd player for the nights we werenât out.
No air conditioning in the apartments, so I wouldnât go there in the summer.
This is a self-catering place and most things are provided â tea towels, cutlery, crockery, pans, etc. Little supermarkets around the area can supply everything else you need. (Franchesca supermarket across the road has a good selection of fresh cakes too!)."

Been there lots of times
"Me and various other family members have been to The Barcarola lots of time and have never been disappointed. Staff are great, pool area is lovely with lots of shady and sunny areas and the apartments are excellent. An oven would be a bonus but we've always managed with the hotplates provided. The Italian restaurant at the front of the hotel is a bit pricier than elsewhere, but well worth it"

"I found this holiday absolutely excellent. We have a teenager in a wheelchair and the facilities are very suitable for this. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The area around the apartments are perfect for daily walks and are very wheelchair friendly. I would highly recommend these apartments. "

"Just returned from a weeks stay at the Barcarola Apartments. Set in a perfect location, on main street at quiter end of Puerto Del Carmen. Don't be fooled by the small entrance gate...lovely inside.
I can say the complex was very clean and set in beautiful gardens which were really well maintained. The pool was quite big and there were plenty of sun loungers to go round.
The hotel staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough to help you. Our maid was fantastic...rooms were spotlessly clean and the washing up was even done! I travelled with my partner and the room was plenty big enough for the two of us.
We were self catering so didn't eat at the hotel but the food smelt really good especially the BBQ! We also went out every night so didn't sample the entertainment within the complex.
The only thing I will say is some of the complex could do with a re-paint. Also as we went in May we were ok with the temperatures at night but I can imagine it will be hotter in summer so no air conditioning could be a bit of a problem when trying to sleep. Apart from that the hotel was fantastic.
Would definitely reccomend these apartments to others and return here myself."

Best Holiday Ever
"This our second time staying here and I have to say the apartments are still as nice as they were when we first stayed there in 2005. The apartments themselves were lovely lots of space and we had a view of the beuatiful grounds. Towels and bed sheets were snow white and the cleaning staff did a fantastic job servicing the apartment every day. It was always spotless. The kitchen was fully equipped the fridge/freezer even had ice cube trays. Bathroom had plenty of space and shower was good and powerful.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and there was no problem when you had to ask for anything. They evn sold stamps and posted you postcards for you. It is ideally situated and the resaturant next door is worth a visit. One word of advice though when coming back late the sprinklers tend to be on so be prepared to get a bit wet!!!! Bit of fun anyway especially after a few cocktails!!!! The pool side bar is great for a snack and a few drinks and even though we did not try the restaurant ourselves anyone we talked to enjoyed the meal there.
All in all we had a great time in Lanzarote and are heading back in September for another holiday."

land of the living dead
"thought we had found the perfect place, as lanzarote can be a bit hilly. these apartments are on the strip, which is very flat, & suits my wife with her very bad leg.apartments are ok, but not 3keys as they claim,you can enjoy a holiday here if you go self -catering,we went half board, the food is the worst i have had in any country, its always very cold,staff do try there best,in fact they do go out of there way,to please.
But what they do not tell you, is they cater more for the GERMANS.
that is why the food is crap.we thought we could go there, stay by the pool, & have a rest & recoop some energy,but its like the land of the living dead.those GERMAN ZOMBIES,just will not entertain any brits,what soever.in fact they will not even speak to there own kind,its the most spookiest place that we have ever stayed,i mean it ,it was the living dead.
will never go back there again."

"Spent two weeks at the Barcarol in September. We booked a 2 bedroom apatment, and had plenty of space, especiall the size of the wardrobes. Only problem, take some extra hangers only 10 hangers in each. Although some of the furniture could do with a face lift, everything was spotless. Beautiful white sheets and towels. The grounds were so picturesque. Our apartment had a pool view and was fantastic. We were self catering and only ate in the hotel once, so maybe best not to comment. There are so many places to eat and drink you are spoilt for choice. The best place for a meal and evening out is at the American Indian Bar. The food is great and they have a band on from 10.00 until closing. The band is fantastic. You can tell when it's getting close to them coming on as the place fills up. Well worth a visit. We spent quite a few nights there. Another place is The Barge Inn, just as you come out of the complex, turn right and a couple of hundred yards there you are. There is something on every evening. Some nights Bingo, yes bingo, but with a difference. You would need to go to find out. The only word of warning about the complex is that if you come back late at night you may find the sprinklers on to water the grass. We did, and to say the least we did not need to shower when we got in. No matter which way we went there was water. Quite funny when you have had a few. Going back next year and can't wait."

Looking for a relaxing stay
"I spent a lot of time looking for the ideal place to stay in Lanzarote .. and found it. An aparthotel, on the level (some places are on steep hills), 1 bedroom, quiet but near the shops and bars, swimming pool, near a beach. A lot to ask.
The apartment was spotless, grounds immaculate - picturesque with trees with different coloured flowers against the white painted flats. The variety of food in the restaurant was fantastic. I got into trouble for having 4 course breakfasts. We only ate out for dinner once in the 2 weeks we were there.only because we felt we should. We paid Â£1100 in total for our 2wks,HB 26/6 from Glasgow. You could pay to eat at the hotel - 6.5 euros for breakfast and 12 for dinner. Kept our pennies for beers and vino after T. Asked for a kettle - no problem. No microwave - who cares - don't have one at home. Fridge freezer-great for icecubes. Would have preferred air-con but the hire of the fan was fine. My mum and dad are going for 4 wks in February-hope to join them for a week. Walk off the street into a quiet oasis.
Mix of nationalities,(tho' we were the only scots), families, different age groups but everyone 'well behaved' if you know what I mean.
Hubby and I are keen footie fans and had a fab time. Best game was GermanyvItaly. Watched it in the grounds with Patrick(kiddies entertainer - he was wonderful with the kids-spoke all languages) and a group of German friends. Kids and all.
Trips : took the (dearer) south day trip - camel ride -hubby not me - Fire Mountain - absolutely incredible - great lunch. el golfo, Yaiza village. (cheap & cheerful trip seemed a bit sales orientated). Visited Cesar Manrique's house on our own. Stay on the bus to Arricife terminus. 10/15 mins on another bus. Go early and miss tours - unusual,peaceful... Arrcife town is good for a vist too.
Sunday market. Great buys' -appx a third cheaper than in town for picture frames, pottery, foto albums.. Took an organised bus - local one was jam packed and it was quite hot. Puerto Calero - v nice boats. Bus taxi v cheap. Pdel Carmen harbour at night was good fun - only went through once cos' quite happy round about where we were.
Food - Don Camillo for pizza, drinks see Steven straight across the road down the hill-good for a banter - nice sangria don't be smart and have it strong.. Loved Lanzarote and would go back in a minute."

We booked our own flights and apartments...
"We booked our own flights and apartments on the internet, so was a little apprehensive, but no need to be apartments were excellent and clean, staff could not do any more for us, they were so friendly.
The pool area was kept in good condition and food was reasonable, but really we ate out most of the time. With two teenage girls of 16 I felt happy for them to be out in the resort on their own.
All round good holiday, I certainly would recommend the apartments and return myself."
