“A peaceful place to unwind, a few minutes walk from beach, shop and restaurants”
We hadn't intended to come to Lanzarote this year but had been let down by our original booking for a cottage in the UK and decided to have a change. The helpful communication with the owners before and after we arrived made us feel welcome already - the meeting at the airport (and taking back) arrangement was a nice touch and much cheaper than getting a taxi. They also kindly bought some initial provisions at our request, so we weren't needing to shop til the first full day there. The property was a pleasant base to relax in and to explore Lanzarote from and nicely decorated. Although there were no fans to help acclimatise, they are available to rent. We found that having the windows open mostly gave sufficient ventilation due to the almost continuous breeze (at this time of year anyway). A few small things such as a broken shower-head and worn-out fly screens over the bedroom window, provision of soap and washing-up liquid were quickly rectified the day after we arrived. The kitchen fly screen repair requested later in the week remained outstanding though. So after a cooked breakfast in the morning of the first day, we left the workman to it and explored the immediate area, with a pleasant walk on the beach. We booked a couple of coach tours - South Tour and Teguise Market, which turned out to be a very pleasant way of seeing the island in comfort, while hearing snippets of its history and geology from the tour guide. So later we also went on the North tour and over to Fuerteventura - all with Low Cost Tours. Some guides were better than others but all were multi-lingual, generally saying everything in two languages, depending on their passengers' nationality. The local Spar shop and restaurants were a few minutes walk from the apartment, with the beach just beyond. Then left round the sands are some little bars/cafes/beach type shops, where we booked our tours. We enjoyed walks along this long promenade towards the airport and also the opposite way to Puerto del Carmen. If you're a beach lover, lots of people had those fold up wind breaks like open fronted tents - a boon as the breeze was often enough to blow the sand about. There is also a local launderette if you need to wash clothes, which collect and return free of charge. Their rate was three euros per kilo and we found they did a good job. Details are in the owners' information folder. Towards the end of our stay we hired bicycles for the day - five or ten euros depending on the type of bike - and cycled along the well marked and mainly off-road cycle track along the sea-front to Arrecife. It was an easy fairly level ride passing right beside the airport on the way. Both here and in Puerto del Carmen and in the restaurants beside the local Spar shop, we enjoyed some excellent food for very reasonable prices . We also enjoyed chilling out outside the apartment, in the evenings cooling off in the pool and during the day myself making much use of the small sunshade, left inside the apartment, and my wife the shade from the now larger tree/climber than is shown in the photographs when not sunning herself. So a very good holiday overall, especially not having to use a car - although car hire is readily available. I think the only downside were the issues at the beginning mentioned already, making our review a four star rather than a five star one.
Owner's reply: I am delighted to read that you experienced the sites the beautiful island of Lanzarote has to offer. From reading your review, staying in La Colina afforded you an excellent base from which to launch your sightseeing.
“Brilliant place, even better location.”
Booked la Colina online after a bit of research. Been to lanzarote many times in the past on family holidays so knew the location. Was a bit sceptic about distances away from things as sometimes they can be a little out on here. These where however bang on. Location was a big thing for us and La Colina did'nt disappoint. As a couple in our 30's we wanted plenty around us and there was in most directions. straight out the front door is a 2 minute walk through another complex to the beach front. Left from here is a small arcade with a few shops and restaurants. Further along is Matagorda with even more amenities. Turning right though is Peurto Del Carmen. It's a bit further along with a 20 min walk but we just jumped in a cab and paid less the 4€, or a bus journey which was €2.80 for both of us..!! Peurto Del Carmen is fantastic and a must for anyone travelling to lanzarote. There's places to eat and cocktail bars aplenty. As for the apartment. It had everything we needed and more. We ate out most nights so didn't need much but we made lunch for the beach and used knifes and chopping boards. Had a lovely brand new fridge freezer which was much bigger than we needed. All rooms where clean and had no funny pongs..!! Had fresh towels ready for us when we got there and more where given halfway through the week. Beds where comfy and bed linen was clean and just about right for the night time temperatures. There was a welcome pack with lots of useful info which I thought was a nice little touch. in it was the apartment wifi code. That's the first time I'v had wifi in many stays in many apartments..!! The outside and pool area where great. The grounds to the rear of the apartment where the pool is was excellent for catching some rays as it trapped the sun all day long. There was plenty of loungers for everyone to use. There's not many apartments in this complex so the pool area is never crowded. Just a few people around the pool when we where there at any time. The pool was a lovely size and never to cold. Once u where in it was just fine.. And also clean. Des and Karen who own the apartment actually came and picked us up from the airport and dropped us back when we left. That was great and saved us lots of pennies. They seemed very nice and where willing to help us if needed. All in all a great stay with no hiccups. Will be returning again indeed.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your comprehensive review of your stay in La Colina along with the very detailed touristic overview. I and the La Colina team are delighted to have been of service to you and look forward to welcoming you back to La Colina in the not too distant future.
“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.
Owner's reply: 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
“Great time had by all.”
Had a great Xmas experience at La Colina. Everything you need to have a lovely time in this beautiful resort are provided at La Colina. There are lots of nice restaurant's and bars within walking distance and spar supermarket short distances away.
Owner's reply: I am delighted that you had a great Xmas stay in La Colina. It is always rewarding to receive positive feedback. I very much look forward to welcoming you back to La Colina at some point in the future.
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.
Owner's reply: 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
“All you could ever want from a holiday and more”
from the minute big john and his daughter collected from the airport to the minute they took us back we had a wonderful and very enjoyable and relaxing stay at la colina apartments .des and his friend john were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble not that there was any ,the apartments were immaculate from the outside to the in far better than any self catering hotels in this area and we have stayed in most of them. my 2 boys 10 and 8 wee never out the pool which had lots of things ther for them to use in and out of the pool they spent days playing footy surfing snorkeling and enjoying the fact the pool was on there door step and not having to walk miles from a hotel room they even made great friends with johns daughter who would come to play it really is a friendly comfortable setting in a beautiful location close to all amenities that you require to enjoy your stay. its that good were going back in April so that is the end of our all inclusive hols this is the place for us.we were not going to do a review as we wanted to keep this place quite but out of great respect and a thank you to des and his team we relented so go there and see for your self but don't stay too long as we might require a place to stay lol
Owner's reply: This is a fantastic review of your holiday and your stay in La Colina. I am thrilled that it met all your expectations and more. The La Colina team was delighted to be of service to you during your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back soon
Having spent 2 weeks in La Colina, Los Pocillos I just wish I could have had another 2 weeks there!. What a wonderful, peaceful place to " get away from it all" yet with all amenities close by. The pretty town of Matagorda is a few minutes walk away and the busy town of Puerto del Carmen is just 3 Euros in a taxi, you can even walk there! My husband and I stayed in Christine in La Colina. A lovely, spotless apartment where the pool was cleaned almost every day. The staff changed the bedding weekly and the towels regularly, they were so kind and picked us up and took us back to the airport, just 10 minutes away. The proprietors greeted us on arrival and were at the end of the phone throughout our stay had we needed them - as it was we didn't but they came down to see us anyway. I have just recommended the apartment to a close friend of mine and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The question is " Would we go back?"....The answer is a resounding YES!!! Gaye and Kevin - Lancashire
Owner's reply: I am delighted that your stay in La Colina was everything you expected. If you ever wish to recharge your batteries again I would very much like to welcome you back to La Colina....until then - Des
“Exceptional Customer Service !”
We stayed in Meg in January (see earlier 5* review) & decided that it was the perfect place to book a surprise much needed holiday for my sister & her husband. From the initial booking to them returning, Des & Karen could not have been more helpful. They took over everything and carefully ensured the organised welcome pack was ready & waiting with all the items requested - they even printed off the personal card emailed over to place by the items. My sister & her husband were overwhelmed with the thoughtfulness of both Des & Karen whom they have also kept in touch with - not forgetting Monti the dog of course ! They are still on cloud nine after returning from where they aptly named La Colina their 'perfect peaceful paradise' which really says it all, & to which I completely agree. Can't wait to return, and we will all most definately be back !
Owner's reply: It was a delight to be of service to you and your sister. A good Customer experience is paramount. Come back soon-Des
