"me and my partner went there last year and had a great time. there is an excursion around the volcanic part of the island, which is worth seeing - also the underground caves of "jameos del agua" on the north part of the island is worth a visit. other things to do include a trip in a submarine, and a catamaran trip to a nearby secluded beach. i recomend rick's bar in puerto del carmen for a really great night out - the DJ there is really funny!"
nicole b :
"my friend has been there a couple of times and rates it very well ,something to do all the while and great for all ages,I'm going for a week with her soon ,cant wait ,so i should imagine you will have a good time,happy holidays....."
geeta s :
"It's a great place. The whole of Puerto del Carmen has loads of bars, clubs, restaurants there. Great discount perfume shops, but what they do is fiddle about on the calculator and tell you that's the discount price, don't believe them, get haggling. You can also do a great excursion to Timon Fiya, the local volcano park, take a ride on camels, go to the waterpark, lots really. Have a lovely time"

Off on my hols soon, would like recommendations for good restaurants please within puerto del carmen.

chip2001 :
"There are so many it's hard to know where to start. We were there a few years ago and we just like to try a different one each evening, just returning to ones we especially liked for the last few nights. There was one that we really liked but I'm struggling to think of its name. It was on a corner, decorated in yellow and green with canopies, and it was part of a chain of similarly named restaurants. You'll know it if you see it!"
timsdad :
"TRY THESE PLACES:- Quintins Restaurante La Ponderosa Tomatissimo Restaurant"
Bumble :
"There is a small chain of restaurants called Lanzi's or something like that (away from the old town). The one that we liked serves the best barbeque-cooked steaks that I have ever had! But there are loads to choose from - have a good time"
tattooman :
"you should go to hotel Del Alba it is the best hotel there in spain"
britishlol :

I am trying to book a holiday in October and wondered if anyone has any feedback on the Aquarius in Puerto del Carmen (good or bad!) Also, can anyone recommend an all inclusive hotel to stay in in Puerto del Carmen that's around £1200 for 2 people for 2 weeks?

fhjr :
"yes ITS GREAT!"
gary h :
"Check out the reviews on them here. Look quite good to me."
Juan :
"I have been last year and i enjoy a lot. Beutiful swimingpool if you need more information visit enjoy in lanzarote, nices place to go."
tojo_98 :
"yes, it wasn't too bad, but I was in an apartment that overlooked the roof of a noisy irish pub! There wasn't much in the way of entertainment. However, the area round the port is beautiful! The prawns in Garlic is superb!"
LiLsHoRtYjEsS :
"im staying at cinco plaza apartments there in 3 weeks cost me £900 for two weeks for a 1 bed apartment ..ders 4 pools der ...check it out ..happy booking :-)"
lanzarotetourist :
"The Aquarius is a nice complex in the old town of Puerto del Carmen. It's close to the harbour area and many bars / restaurants. Most rooms are facing the sea so you can have a nice view but obviously depends on how high you end up. There have been reports eariler in the month about the quality of the rooms with some poeple finding many problems, the complex is trying to keep onto of repairs etc to keep everything at a good standard. All inclusive... the Aquarius will offer this when you are checking in for a small fee. However, I really don't see the point, the island is cheap enough to eat and drink (stay away from most Irish bars) and will not cost you much for a good meal and night out. Try visiting some good Spanish restaurants as you will find these the cheapest (find the ones hidden away). Have a look at the sites below for some great information on Puerto de Carmen."
Andy H2 :
"1. Aquarius is a pretty nice complex...some of the apartments are even time-share standard. In a good location in the Old Town of P.D.C...you would enjoy it there..nice pool...great sea views!! 2. Don't go all-inclusive....i would only go all inclusive if you don't want to do any sight-seeing and you don't mind spending all day in the same place! bars and restaurants are very reasonable! loads of choice from all different nationalities! 3. Irish pubs are quite expensive..but most have live music, so you have to pay extra for that!! They don't charge you to get in - so it goes on the price of the beer! 4. You should be able to get an accomodation only holiday for a lot less than 1,200quid for 2 in October...then use the cash you save to see some of the island. 5. Post another question here including your age and what you like to do on holiday and i will give you some recommendations if you like?!!"
