"who let the cat out of the bag??????????"
This little secret is now out so much so I cant get back at my allotted time next year!!!!! This little gem is everything we hoped for and more. Des and Karen are available if you need them as they l… More
I am delighted to hear that you found La Colina and its location offered everything you expected from a holiday. It is always pleasing when guests come on holiday and look for the positives. My only regret is not being able to offer you the same dates for next year such is the popularity of La Colina. I do though look forward to welcoming you back at some point in the future. We were glad to be of service to you

"Home from home"
From the lovely welcome we received from Karen and Des to the return ride to the airport with John (collection and return included in our price!!) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Colina. Ideal for families and we will be bringing our grandchildren back this summer. Nice quiet complex with plenty of space both inside and out. Look forward to the next time.
Yet another positive reflection of the all round QUALITY that holidaying at La Colina has to offer guests. Thank you Sharon and I am delighted that you found the SERVICE received matched the QUALITY of La Colina. I look forward to your return when I will be pleased to offer you the same level of both QUALITY AND SERVCE - thank you again

"Perfect Location for us"
Very cosy block of 8 apartments which are set back a bit from the front in a nice quiet area. You are about 5 mins walk from the main Spar and sea front and quite central to Puerto del Carmen. Lots … More
I am delighted that your stay in La Colina met your expectations. It is also pleasing to read that a guest is understanding of how adverse weather (such as that Lanzarote has experienced since November) can affect pool temperatures and potentially mar an otherwise enjoyable experience. All involved with running and maintaining La Colina strive to offer guests the experience they deserve and, it is greatly appreciated by all involved when a guest recognises those efforts. I look forward to welcoming you back when I am confident there will be a radical difference in the weather

"Very Disappointing - Apartment Meg"
Sadly, this apartment has been used and abused. The upholstery, shower, mat and woodwork were far from the clean standard we have come to expect from apartments on Lanzarote. Yes, white goods are new… More
When I came down to visit you at the apartment and asked if everything was ok for you, your answer was “not really, it is not where we wanted to be” when questioned where did you want to be, your answer was “nearer the centre of PdC.” I cannot help but think that perhaps your review of the apartment and La Colina reflects that you were not where you wanted to be for your 11 week stay. This is notwithstanding that the map and the description of La Colina clearly depicts its location but nevertheless, only a few euros bus or taxi ride (or a pleasant walk) to PdC centre. Turning now to the comments you have made. I thank you for your positive comments and importantly, I do take genuine issues very seriously. I accept that at the start of your holiday you reported the odd one or two bugs in the apartment. If you recall, I reacted swiftly by asking you to take a few hours away from the apartment (and gave you €20 for a breakfast (which you failed to mention in your review)) to spray. I must presume that this exercise worked as you failed to mention bugs throughout the remainder of your stay even when we came to see you. I am not sure I fully understand your comment ‘used and abused.’ Of course the apartment is used-it has a plus +80% occupancy with many returning guests. Even the review posted after yours cites how clean and fresh the apartment is. A major disparity therefore in your assessment versus that of another guest. With regard to your comments on the pool. The black rim you have referred to is likely to be the plague of ladybirds that has hit Lanzarote (as is well recorded) many of which have ‘settled’ on all the swimming pools. The pumping systems will take the bugs around the edges of the pool (giving the impression of a ‘black line’) and which were netted and removed each time they landed. To correct you, there is a solar heating installation on the roof not visible to guests BUT the pipework from the roof installation to the pool is visible. You will I am sure rightly agree that the weather you had here has been less than pleasant so, with such little sunshine, a solar heating system will not have the intended effect. All my advertising clearly states the effect that cloudy weather can have on the pool heating system which is the same for all accommodations with this common type of heating system. To conclude. La Colina offers excellent value for money which is exemplified by the many positive and complimentary reviews. La Colina’s client base is significantly made up of returning guests of many nationalities and has a +80% annual occupancy. I must be doing something right which is very much appreciated by 99.999999% of guests.

"Would not stay here again."
Went to stay here for 2 weeks with my step mum and dad. was really looking forward to having a swim in the pool every day as on the pictures it looks clean and a good size pool to swim in. I was reall… More
I am detecting a collaborative witch hunt having also received a review from your step parents??? When they arrived at La Colina they must have been full of praise for La Colina as they contacted me to ask if you could join them in their apartment. I was more than happy for you to join them quoting only €40 per week. You stayed for two weeks yet paid only for the one week. Your parents duped me to the extent that you paid only €40 (some £30) for two weeks accommodation for two persons - how reasonable is that yet you decline to mention this in your review. You have stated the beds were uncomfortable. You are the only guests to mention this in the plus two years I have owned the apartments. This is in stark contrast to guest reviews saying how comfortable the beds are and how well they slept on them. As for the pool, this is some 15 metres long which is more than half the length of the La Colina complex. How large would you want a pool to be before it is not small???? Olympic sized????!!! You saw a cockroach that had dropped into the pool. It is not uncommon to see cockroaches in external areas in hot climes. Did you use the freely available net to scoop it out and enjoy a swim?....seemingly not instead, preferring to have a moan more than 3 weeks after your return to the UK – perhaps prompted to do so. La Colina offers excellent value for money which is exemplified by the many positive and complimentary reviews. La Colina’s client base is significantly made up of returning guests of many nationalities and has a +80% annual occupation. I must be doing something right which is very much appreciated by 99.999999% of guests.Thankfully, there are not too many totally negative people on this planet

"We had a terrible experience 5 weeks of feeling grotty"
Cockroaches and other insects. Dated dirty, well used and grotty. The stench from the bathroom was disgusting. No amount of disinfectant controlled the smell. Insects continued to appear after a co… More
In the summer of 2014 this apartment had a brand new bathroom installed together with a complete kitchen refurbishment in Autumn of 2014 which included a new worktop, new sink/taps and new fridge/freezer. In 2014 it also had brand new bed linen and towels. In 2013 it had a new couch along with a new flat screen tv. This amount of investment cannot mean it is dated. Frequent overpainting is carried out so that every new guest can experience the same quality upon arrival The service arrangement for you was the same for all other guests all of whom have been very complimentary of the cleanliness of the apartment As for creatures – it is a fact that an island off the coast of Africa will result in sporadic visits from unwanted creatures. These are evident when walking around external areas and the streets of Lanzarote. On the odd occasion, they find their way into homes. When this occurs I would expect a guest to immediately bring it to my attention to allow a resolve. I would not expect a guest to stay in the apartment for a further five weeks before returning home to tell me. The same applies to the apparent odours from the bathroom which was not mentioned by any previous guest When you reported a blown light bulb and requested extra blankets these were dealt with instantaneously and to your complete satisfaction. Any other genuine issue you had should have been similarly reported to me during your stay and if done so, would have been dealt with similar speed and efficiency. To conclude and to counter your review. La Colina offers excellent value for money which is exemplified by the many positive and complimentary reviews. La Colina’s client base is significantly made up of returning guests of many nationalities s and has a +80% annual occupation. I must be doing something right which is very much appreciated by 99.999999% of guests. Sadly, there is always one!!!!

"Nice for families"
This was our first ever experience of an apartment holiday, so I can't compare with others. The owner (although we never met him), Des, was really pleasant and helpful in all email contacts, and even … More
Thank for your positive elements of the review. Disappointingly, we attended La Colina many times during your stay but each time you were out. Concerning the television; this was offered to you with numerous Spanish channels but during your stay, the remote control was damaged thereby reducing the number of channels able to be provided. With regards to the pool, it is solar heated and the weather whilst you were here was not at its best hence the pool seemed cold. I know of another guest here whilst you were here and he was in it every day. This to me confirms the pool was warm enough and indeed kept clean. In conclusion, La Colina does not advertise that it has a children's pool. In addition, it is highly recommended that children are continuously supervised in and around pools to avoid the risk of harm.

This was the area where we wanted to be and the apartment was in a good location with plenty of parking spaces. Spar only 100m away and very reasonable prices with their own mini bakery inside, ideal for breakfast. Spot on if you are a beach lover, blue flag beach less than 200m from apartment and great to swim in. There are a few eateries close by and walk left for 5 minutes there are more and go right for 20 minutes and there are loads ore on a strip. The pool was warm enough in November, even though the weather wasn't always great and it was very private with only 7 other apartments. The apartment was basic and satisfactory, we were not expecting 5 star accomm, the beds were good and the shower was excellent. Plenty of utensils in the kitchen and everything worked, so what more can you ask for. The furniture was fine. John e family always around and very helpful and owners Des & Karen a great help - even sourced me my favourite wine! The TV was modern and the cable free view basic - we usually avoid TV - however when the weather was bad my USB plugged into the side of it for movie time, handy when the heavens opened for a few days. I always try a different place when I go to Lanza, but would have no hesitation in using this apartment again.
It was very pleasing to read your review and to hear your stay in La Colina met with your expectations. It was a pleasure to source your favourite wine as it meant us visiting our favourite restaurant on the island to acquire it. I very much look forward to welcoming you back to La Colina at some point in the future
