Expert review of Las Costas Hotel
I like the atmosphere and layout of this compact, friendly hotel on two levels. Apartment-style rooms lie in a horseshoe around the central pool area, looking out to sea. Guests can make use of lots of extra services not usually found in a hotel this size (there are less than 200 rooms).
Close to the centre of the resort, with easy access to the beach.
Most have either a terrace or balcony. All – surprisingly even the standard rooms – have sofas, as well as microwave, fridge and TV. There is good air conditioning in all bedrooms (not often the case in Lanzarote). With their simple furniture and furnishings, these rooms are very functional, rather than offering any kind of luxury.
The large swimming pool and adjoining kids’ pool is very much the centrepiece of the hotel, where music is usually played during the day. Many of the smaller beachside hotels on the island tend to have relatively small pools, but that isn’t the case here. A small lounge area next to reception is really a waiting area rather than a place to spend any time.
The buffet restaurant, with a terrace next to the pool, offers decent international food, and there is also a popular, though simple, bar.
Guests can unwind in the Jacuzzi and sauna, and there is also a gym, although some of the equipment has seen better days. Massages are available for an extra fee. There is evening entertainment several nights a week and a kids’ club. A pool table, darts and games room are all on site. I was impressed that lots of extra services are on offer that are not often available at a hotel this size, such as ironing and dry cleaning services, babysitting and packed lunches – all for an extra charge of course.
All the staff seem to work very hard and are helpful. I found the reception staff particularly friendly.
Mostly couples and some singles: very few children. Germans, Spanish and some British guests.
The three grades of room all have the same facilities and look almost identical: what you are paying for is either a view of the sea or more floor space.
