Lovely week. Staff very helpful and friendly. Yes accommodation was dated but spotlessly clean - and who goes to Lanzarote and stays in their room all day? Kitchenette area seemed a waste of space - no kettle or anything to use. 2 pools - one heated. Animation team worked very hard all week providing a good variety of activities during...
