About Bungalows Velazquez
Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote is a hotspot for many tourists wanting to choose a great location for their break on this enticing island. A stay in Las Velasquez Apartments certainly fits the bill in terms of location, and with plenty to offer both couples and those with children, the apartments provide plenty more too.
Located a mere nine miles away from the airport, you’ll be unpacking and slipping into something more comfortable sooner than you think after touching down on the runway. These three-star apartments provide everything you could want for a great holiday.
The location itself is perfect since you are within walking distance of many of the great attractions offered in the Puerto del Carmen resort. Pick up supplies from the shops, enjoy a drink at a bar or perhaps book a table at a nearby restaurant. Whatever you want to do, the Las Velasquez Apartments make it all possible.
And if you hire a car you’ll be within striking distance of the Timanfaya National Park, not to mention Los Volcanes Natural Park too. Make sure you book early to be assured of your apartment here soon.
Room Information and Room Facilities
The rooms are beautifully furnished and finished with cool tiles and light airy colours. It’s possible to choose from a one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment depending on your requirements as well.
All apartments boast their own private kitchenette area that’s perfect for preparing an easy breakfast or even something tasty in the evening. With the aid of a microwave and a two-burner hob you can easily cook up something to satisfy your tastes. With local shops easy to reach you can buy fresh vegetables, meats and other tasty morsels to store in the fridge provided too. And of course you have a kettle for those early morning coffees!
There is an appealing lounge area provided as well, not to mention a table and chairs for those meals you’ll be preparing when you don’t opt to visit a restaurant. With balconies and terraces on offer as well, your apartment provides the perfect place to rest and relax.
Facilities, Entertainment, Activities
There is a wonderful outdoor pool that is an undoubted highlight at this venue. No doubt everyone who stays here will be making the most of this particular facility. You can also park nearby for free if you do decide to hire a car for the duration of your stay.
Every room enjoys a maid service on a daily basis, which means your apartment will be freshened up each day once you have left to enjoy the resort or the surrounding areas.
With plenty of sun loungers to choose from around the pool area, the adults will enjoy relaxing in the sun while the kids have fun in the pool. It’s ideal for everyone to make the most of.
Food and Drink Options
These apartments are ideal for those who wish to enjoy a mix of self-catering as well as being able to try some of the myriad of great restaurants in the Puerto del Carmen resort. The room facilities are excellent in terms of preparing food and being able to eat your meals, with good storage facilities as well. There is ample cupboard space and of course the generously-sized fridge as well.
When you don’t want to prepare any food yourself, it’s an easy walk into the heart of the action here. You can enjoy booking a table at your chosen restaurant — a different one each day, perhaps — or take up a chair at a bar to enjoy a refreshing drink and watch the world go by down at the beach. It’s sheer perfection.

"My boyfriend and I have just returned from a week here.
The location is excellent as it is right on the sea front, and just off the main road running through Puerto Del Carmen to Playa Pocillos and Matagorda.
The apartments are in excellent condition, and should really be 4* when you compare it to what you normally get as a 3*. We were in Apartment 2 - a large first floor apartment with two large balconies over-looking the sea, one main bathroom, and one en-suite. Additionally, it is next to the pool so very handy for popping in and out.
There is a very small beach next to the apartments (dependant on the tide). Hardly anyone goes on there as it is so close to the pool (with its large abundance of loungers), but it is quiet and I can highly recommend it. The large main beach is less than 5 minutes walk away, though I would recommend walking a little further to get a sun lounger; two beds and a brolly for 8 euros - excellent value!
The price of food and drink is quite high - although I can recommend the Diamond Cocktail bar cocktails which are very reasonable (2 minutes to the right of the apartments - try the Dragon!). There are loads of restaurants, but they are pretty much the same menu's and prices. WARNING: if the food is quite a bit cheaper than a neigbouring restaurant, you will probably find that the drinks are very expensive to compensate!!
Overall we really enjoyed our holiday, and loved the accomodation, and had the most spectacular views. The only downsides was the Cafe Ola next door - although it is nice it is quite noisey late at night from talking, not music. Additionally, we were not told about the 150 Euro deposit for the room - the travle agent didnt warn us!!!
However, would definately go here again, and would tell everyone to go there as it is definately in the best location in Puerto Del Carmen."

"Probably the best accomodation that we have stayed in as a family. Clean, away from the noise, not on the flight path, 2 good pools, good amount of loungers every day. Genuinely cant fault it. If you want to go to Puerta Del Carmen then book this place, 10 out of 10"

"Fantastic apartments for their rating. Private, yet only a few steps from the main strip of bars/restaurants/supermarkets (watch the supermarket prices- quite dear even for local produce because in a tourist resort). Las Velasquez are clean , spacious , modern and well maintained (any problems are fixed by reception almost immediatley). I stayed in a two bedroom apartment with 1 other adult and 3 children for the first 2 weeks in July and would recommend these apartments and reiterate everything that other reviewers have already stated- perfect location, easily accomodates 5 people (2 bathrooms- great). Stayed in apartment 3 which opened up almost onto the pool (also within a few steps of the apartments' own mini beach/cove) - great for getting sunbeds, watching the kids and nipping in and out of the apartment for things- almost like having our own private pool as not too busy either!
Restaurant - next door ("Cafe La Ola") is a lovely place to eat - all types of food- reasonably priced and gorgeous setting overooking the sea)- This restaurant has its own pool and massage cabana and is decorated in a moroccan style with occasional belly dancing entertainment etc. (Go in for a coffee even and lounge on a 4 poster sun bed or swing during the day or evening- ) . All in all Las Velasquez are great apartments and handy to local transport, shops, bars, restaurants, car hire and day trip offices. For info: 20 minute walk from the port (including Biosfera shopping centre) which takes you along the strip of bars, restaurants, souvenir shops etc that is known as Puerto del Carmen-no problem at night but tiring in the heat of the day - however costs less than 3 Euros in a taxi (flag one down- plentiful). A great holiday was had by all my party - someting in Puerto del Carmen for everyone/all ages."

"We have just returned from a fantastic holiday here and we could find no fault with this excellent accommodation.
Clean, spacious and ideally located in a central but quiet position. Staff were also very friendly and helpful.
By far the best aspect of the apartment was its location only a few hundred yards away from the sea. We would certainly be very pleased to return to these apartments."

"Excellent - what more can I say. Our party consisted of two 40 year old females and our 2 mothers in their 60's, but we all know how to have a good time.
We had a two bedroom apartment right on the sea. The views and the quietness was amazing even though we were only a few yards away from the main strip.
The apartment was really well equipped and the two bathrooms were most welcome.
We had been to Lanzarote, Puerto Del Carmen before and loved the town but this was better than before - Great location, Great accommodation, and an all round great time.
Well recommended. "
