Divided 3 Star

Never a 5 Star... We tried to get into the 5 star mode but spent our time enjoying elsewhere due to the dull atmosphere at hotel. We were all inclusive, paid a lot of money, every time we ordered a drink we had to sign a receipt which was rather disappointing, even a water!! Our sunbathing was ruined by Workmen, crane ,drilling, angle grinding, hammering etc Hotel is divided Sanctuary!! which looks 5 star but costs extra...!! Food was plentiful but cold, lukewarm etc we ate out most nights..Bar staff were nice but service seemed very slow hence the signing for drinks!! baffling.
Room was nice but very noisy from 0630 as the Servicing trolley room was adjacent to ours. Never 5 Star...been in better 3 Stars to be fair. Very disappointed. Guests should have been informed about the renovation works !! Never again

Nice hotel

Had a week there with my partner on half board. Firstly, there are maintenance works going on but they are very small and subtle and do not get in the way, and the hotel is functioning normally. It's a very big hotel but never feels overcrowded. It's always fairly easy to get a sunbed around the pool and you don't feel crowded. Great location right on the beach. Staff were efficient and helpful. There was a good choice of food for breakfast and dinner. The hotel itself is beautiful, however we really loved the Manrique influence and the whole feel of the design. We came to Lanzarote because we wanted to see the Manrique Foundation. The hotel design is very 70s Bond movie style. Classic but not for everyone. Our room was clearly one of the ones that had just been refurbished and was excellent, everything was brand new and shiny and very modern with a lovely, private balcony overlooking the sea. They gave us a complimentary bottle of Cava for my birthday - thank you! We had a classic room.
Now a few niggles: the main pool (not the level pool) looks lovely but we thought it had a really weird smell of household bleach, not the regular chlorine pool smell, but a strong smell of bleach. It's WINDY in Teguise, not the hotel's fault, but it's really windy all the time and it can get a bit much sometimes. The food was good overall, and we are not fussy eaters, but there was something not quite right about the evening buffet - we thought it was a bit tasteless. Good desserts though, especially the petit fours! There are little stray cats everywhere around the outside eating area. This didn't bother me at all until one day a couple left their table to go to the buffet, and a cat jumped on their table and licked their plates, so beware!
Overall we enjoyed our week here and it's a lovely hotel - not sure if we would come back to Teguise because of the howling wind!

Would go back

We really loved the hotel. From the very friendly and professional check in with Federica throughout all of our stay. We found the hotel- restaurant, bar areas and room (great maid service) all very clean , comfortable and stylish. The pool area in particular is beautiful.
The gym has great facilities and great classes with Cecelia. Not normally something we would get into on holidays but much enjoyed!
There was a great choice of drinks included in the all -inclusive. Food was nice but repetitive after 5 or more days. The grill at the pool bar had some nice options though. We had one meal in the a la carte restaurant which was lovely but would expect more choice for a 5 star hotel.
Likewise the entertainment in the lounge in the evening wasn't the best and would expect a little more.
However, even with these "negatives", we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

It is billed as a 5 star hotel, they are doing refurbishment and are supposed to open later this month as a Platinum hotel, This It Is Not !! although our rm was clean and adequate the air conditioning was terrible , it was noisy and absolutely no cold air came from it at all . We reported this for 5 days straight which also included the rep trying to help us as well. All they kept saying was that they were having trouble with the air conditioners! They eventually offered us a different rm , we didn’t move as surprise surprise the air conditioner unit was exactly the same, no cold air!!
The pool areas of which there are two, the main hotel guests are not allowed in the premium pool unless you pay a 40 Euros a day fee!! So the big pool is in need of a huge upgrade , there are cracks in the pool seal in areas ,(a bacteria trap) the sun beds and sunshade are poor quality,need replacing and there is definitely not enough shade or beds for the guests ( the other pool area they have cushions on sun beds and the pool surround have easy walking and proper flagstones) walking around the main pool is very hard on your feet with very uneven walking surfaces, huge trip hazards, one lady had a parasol fall on her and needed stiches , they were upgraded to a bungalow!!
We enjoyed the buffet breakfast, there was a huge selection of food for you to choose from.
The house keeping service was also good .
Our tui rep was very helpful .
I don’t think I will ever want to visit this hotel again !
