Located on second floor with fabulous view out to sea this apartment is an ideal base for a quiet and relaxing holiday. It is a holiday rental rather than a private home rented out so don't expect top quality furnishings and equipment but that said it was well appointed with just about everything you would need or want for a short break. Everything in the apartment worked properly and unusually for Playa Bastian the wifi was excellent. Two supermarkets within a few minutes and its only a ten minute walk into town along the coastal pathway (100 metres) which is ideal if you are a runner or jogger as it is a 20ft wide smooth paved path extending many Km's in both directions. The apartment benefits from access to all of Playa Bastian's pools and on-site cafe 'Los Amigos' but also to a large private pool just for the Casa Verde apartments. Some days I was pretty much the only user of the (unheated but not cold) pool all day. There is also a small pool for very young children? Sun beds are also provided in the pool area. In general the residents of the apartments were mature adults and very quiet and there was very little 'holiday resort noise'. For me the crowning glory of the apartment is its terrace. Large enough for Exercise, Yoga or Tai-Chi routines it has sunbeds, basic chairs, table for outdoor eating and a large open BBQ. It is mainly open aspect with partly shaded areas at each end. Almost directly south facing over the sea it was getting full sun from Sunrise to an hour before sunset. Only a couple of other apartments have any sort of sight line onto the terrace so it is extremely private for those who enjoy non textile sunbathing!
I'm a regular short break traveller to Lanzarote in recent years and whilst Costa Teguise may not be the most exciting place it does has its merits. Playa Bastian is just far enough outside the town centre to make it reasonably quiet and I doubt you would find many better apartments in this price bracket for a relaxing break.
We loved our week here. It was great having plenty of space especially as my daughter was ill the first 2 days and I was stuck in the apartment with her! It was very clean in the apartment. The location was ideal for us - a ten minute walk into town along a lovely paved footpath by the sea and a supermarket only 2 minutes away. We hired a car for 4 days and there was plenty of car parking space. The view was great and we really enjoyed spending time on the balcony. The pool was really clean and quiet and although the water was on the cold side we did enjoy a couple of fun evenings in there. We would definitely stay here again!

The apartment is large and in a great location however it is badly in need of full refurbishment. The balcony is also large with a small plastic crumbling table (cloth over to hide this fact), two plastic chairs one of which is cracked and two plastic loungers again both cracked which is potentially very dangerous.
If this apartment was refurbished I would definitely recommend it and we would also return.
Excellent flat. 2 bedrooms with en suites. Wifi DVD TV microwave washing machine etc etc. Sea view. Quiet yet near to shops and restaurants. Good for gentle walking.
Local agents Linda and Lori superb.
Shame we got the flu!
