More about Seaside Los Jameos Playa
Hotel Los Jameos
It is not a cheap one, but what you get for the money you pay is more than enough. Perfectly situated right infront of the beach(only need to cross a street to be in the white sand), with bars, shops and restaurants arround, but not noisy at all.
There is public transportation to any part of the island at the door of the hotel, but it is very easy to hire a car, and not expensive.
So, if you plan to explore the wonderful island of Lanzarote, this hote may be the perfect place to rest.

Los Jameos del Agua.
One of the most interesting galleries of connecting caves and underground grottoes in the world lies to the north of Lanzarote, at the foot of the volcano Monte de la Corona which erupted around 3.000 years ago.
'Jameos' means bubbles of lava. A jameo is formed when a tunnel ceiling collapses, most often occurring when its width exceeds twenty meters, or when gases accumulate and explode

Los Jameos del Agua - a hollow which is left after the collapse of a volcanic cave - has been designed in a spectacular way and includes nowadays a auditorium, restaurant and expositions. A natural lagoon in the main grotto is the home of blind white crabs - a unique phenomenon of zoology on the world.

Los Jameos Del Agua. These are the caves which the local arquitect Cesar Manrique has converted to show their natural beauty. Well, it can be seen that this have to much of man's hand! I'd prefered it more natural.
There is actually a lift available for the less able bodied people to go down to the bottom although you will have to come back up the same way.
Inside the caves there are some tiny blind, white crabs which have been brought close to the surface by the volcanic activity. This is the only place in the world where you can see such specimens.
En Tenerife, visitar el parque...
En Tenerife, visitar el parque nacional del Teide, Los Gigantes, y el precioso Puerto de la Cruz.
En Lanzarote, vale la pena, ver los Jameos del Agua, así como el impresionante parque de Timanfaya, con viaje en camello incluído.
Para playas alucinantes, la mejor ísla es Fuerteventura, en el área de Morro Jable o Corralejo. Así como Papagayo en Lanzarote.
After reading so many positive reviews on this hotel, it would only be right to post one of our own to tell others what we thought of our 'Los Jameos' experience. We have been holidaying in Lanzarote on and off for the last 15 years and have stayed at many of the 4 star hotels on the island. Our favorite is without doubt the Beatrix in Tegusie (Not everyones cup of tea). Although we had booked to go to the Beatrix (would have been our 4th year running) a last minute mess-up by the travel agent mean't that we found ourselves booked into the Los Jameos Playa. First impressions of the hotel are good and to be fair we could not fault the room (once a map was provided giving details as to how to find it). Although it might have been the fact that we visited at the height of the season, we could not understand why the entire population of Dublin had all chosen to go to the same hotel as each other and for the same 2 weeks of the year ! We subsequently found out that occupancy rates and that the management were 'doing a special deal' in the paper. As a consequence the hotel was absolutely heaving. Not one day out of the 14, were we able to find a single spare sunbed around the pool (why do holiday makers feel the need to get up at 5am to put towels on sun beds), so ended up on the public beach everyday instead. The antics of the 'fill your faces with all you can grab' guests in the restaurant was amusing to start with, but not that funny after as the buffet was left looking very sad after the waves of assaults(assuming of course that you were able to get a table in the first place). In the end and despite paying half board prices, we simply gave up and ate out instead. Would we recommend it? Well if you like sunbathing around the pool under the stars and eating what looks like the contents from the bottom of our daughters rabit cages, the answer would be yes. If you don't then we would suggest that you look elsewhere. Oh nearly forgot to mention the hotel evening entertainment.......
nice entrance to hotel. bell boy took bags to room . most rooms have sea or pool view. Rooms nice size . larger than standard bathroom.
the food was very good I was on an all-inclusive basis and the choice and quality of food was both varied and of a high standard . Each night having a different theme. several pools well designed . pool towel service , quality sun loungers with padded inserts. guests were 70% german as the seaside chain of hotels are german owned. the rest being madeup of british , irish , italians and french. night life was rather low key if you are mature like dancing and shows its right up your street. If you like disco's go elsewhere.
plenty of alternative nightlife close by. Dinner: must be smart ,no shorts allowed. general feel good factor with this hotel, the staff were brilliant.
If you want a relaxing holiday with high standards look no further. i will be visiting again.
what has happened
what has happened to this lovely hotel,ANS ALL INCLUSIVE,i have been to this hotel 4 times and this year will be my last.Poor food misserable service ie 45mins to get a drink. breakfast is a farce they had one toaster the whole 2 weeks health & safty would be horrified.had to eat out most nites ,entertainment old and tired they filled in with the entertainments manager, sorry but he cant sing.and time to get rid of the german tranvestites very sad.no control over childern at night dont expect to have a nice evening at the berlingo as babies and 3yr olds rule the dance floor.Manager listened to my comments gave me a luguage belt for my trouble, it didnt make things any better. this hotel needs to loose a star or a good kick in the butt,this is a pity as i have always loved this hotel, to sum up it a tired hotel in desperation to fill its rooms and will try anything to do so.
Must redress the balance after the last post. We stayed at xmas 2005 as a family of 2 adults and also 3 children under 6. Everything about the hotel itself was fantastic. Food was stunning (we don't eat meat but at least 4 fresh fish available every night cooked in front of you), service attentive and top notch, lovely rooms etc. Possibly the best thing was the mini-club: we couldn't keep the kids out of there! Didn't expect to have a rest! The hotel was a really good mix of Brits, Germans, Spanish and French. The environs are not the most beautiful (although sunsets along the beach are impressive) and the weather was mixed (as to be expected at this time of year) but all in all difficult to fault it.
Very Happy Holiday...
stayed here 8 or 9 times. As usual on arrival we were struck by the ambiance and delightful architecture. Reception efficient and friendly. Endless choice of everything for breakfast, i.e. omelette cooked to your taste, eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, nuts, cerials yoghurts, hot choc. teas, coffees, pate, cheese ham, smoked salmon etc. etc.Evening meal buffet, vast choice, fish several sorts, meats, salads, fruits, pastries etc etc. You can eat outside under a roof.. Landscaped garden around which hotel is built is quite delightful. Yes, the 75% predominently middle aged German holiday makers did reserve sunbeds, but we got one when we wanted. The whole atmosphere was quiet, relaxed and pleasant. Just over the road is the beach and shops. Evening entertainment was very good some nights, other nights just music for dancing. This hotel has the wow factor, and even when virtually full, service did not suffer. We shall be back again. It is not cheap, but we consider it well worth it for a guaranteed standard which has never faltered in ten years.
