“Best family holiday in a long time”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

Its been a few years since we stayed at cinco plaza but all I can say is amazing! The apartments are clean and bright and the pool area is excellent for the kids. We went out for food every day so cant say what there foods like. As with any holiday Ive been on if you want to get a lounger and certain part around the pool then expect to be up very early! I woke one morning at half five to find people standing about the pool with there towels waiting till seven for the loungers to be unlocked!! The entertainment thats on every night is brilliant, OK it repeats every week so if like us youre there for a fortnight then after the first week youve seen it all. One downside, didnt affect us but, if walking up hills is hard work then cinco plazas location might be an issue as it is well off the main road and is all up hill.
Finally if you like a wee drink in the evening I'd advise on the small irish bar at the bottom of the hill on the right hand side, The Bodrhan, its small and quaint but the craic in it is amazing!! Live music nearly every night and great bar staff, Ive been to lanzarote a few times and always make a point off spending at least a few nights of the holiday there.

Room Tip: Ask for a low room close to the pool if you have kids as it means you can sit and chill in the shade...

Just got back from a week here and although the apartments were clean the walls were paper thin and you could even hear next door snoring.The towels were threadbare and our feet were black from the floor,however the pool area was very clean and tidy.Iwould not come here again but if you do ask for a quiet room first floor.

We stayed in a superior romm with 2 bedrooms. The standard was among the highest, we have seen. You should expect the beds to be quite hard. Cleaning about 5 days a week, better than average. Very nice heated pool with a lifeguard 10am to 6pm. Very clean pool area and always enough sunbeds.

The buffet restaurant offers full english and/or continental breakfast every day. The coffee and the juices were surprisingly good. The dinner meal changes it's theme every day, but the salads, the desserts and other thing are the same every day or is varying only a little bit. We paid only approx 500£ for the whole family in two weeks including a very nice christmas dinner. With this in mind, the quality is allright.

Room Tip: We liked room 1112 - a south facing ground floor superior apartment at the end of one of the two hea...

Reviewed 22 December 2011

complex clean but room was very basic. We stayed 11th - 18th Dec and it was very cold on a night with no heating whatsoever - too cold to stay in room on on evening which shattered our expectations of an apartment holiday. Could hear people in next rooms talking - flushing toilet - snoring - all in all a bad experience Only had breakfast on final day - again very basic.
Changed room on arrival as the room they put us in smelled of foul drains and there was mould around bathroom tiles

Room Tip: first floor so you don't have clonking heels above you - also south facing

I stayed in these apartments 1st -8th Dec. There are 3 blocks of apartments Del sol, Amarillo and Montana which each have there own pool area. We stayed at Montana which was nice and quiet.
No problems getting sunbeds or problems with noisy neighbours as some previous reviewrs have.

Complex and apartments are clean and spacious. I didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on the food. Same goes for evening entertainment. I travelled with 2 toddlers, so they were in bed by 19.30.

I would recommend paying for the extra TV channels if you have to stay in in the evenings. This also included the disney channel, so there is some kids TV.

It is also ideally located about 5 mins walk to the beach. I didn't find the walk back up the hill too bad, even though I was pushing a pushchair

Room Tip: room 2101 has a nice terrace, and plants in front, if you don't want a pool view
