“A Peefect Spot for R&R”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We booked El Mar 21 direct with the manager Margarita, however we were moved to el Mar 25 at the last minute due to the renovation of 21 not being complete in time for our visit. The cottage lived up to our expectations for a week of rest and relaxation. However, it could have been improved if we had access to the air conditioning, the units are installed but not in use for some reason and 25 didn't have Wi-Fi, which was advertised for 21. A change of linen and towels mid stay would also have been appreciated. That said the cottage has everything else you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Perfect spot if you don't want to travel far to eat, drink and be merry. If like us you just want to sit on the balcony and watch the local fishermen come and go and the world go by, this is the place for you.

Being regular January Lanzarote visitors we thought we'd seen it all. El Mar 21 proved that wrong. Situated on the harbour edge, away from the bustle that Puerto del Carmen is (in)famous for, El Mar 21 is idyllic. The balcony vista will be hard to beat anywhere. Quiet by day & night, just 1, quiet, one-way street well away from the 'back door'. The accommodation had everything, the washing machine (extra) was a bonus with all the cycling done. The slight problem with the wifi on arrival was very quickly dealt with by Magarita who was very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be staying again.

We ended up in No 25 instead of 21 after consultation from Margarita which was fine with us.
The place has fantastic views and is in no way spoiled by the boardwalk. We have been coming to the El Mar properties for over 10 years and the place is a little haven of sunshine and is ideally located near to local amenities/beaches some wonderful traditionally Spanish restaurants. The place was spotless and has everything you need for self catering.
Welcome bottle of bubbly was much appreciated as was the fresh fruit.
Maragarita arranged our taxi back to the airport and recommended as we flew on the Sat to get taxi to accommodation rather than the transfer we normally book as the airport would be quieter which it was so saved us money.

“lovely holiday”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Spent lovely 14 nights at E Mar 21.Property is right on the harbour front complete with your own replica boat.The tide comes right up to the steps in your rocky garden.You can waken in the morning to the water lapping on the steps and the sounds of the ducks.
There is always something to see in the harbour from your upper balcony together with mountain views of Western Lanzarote and the island of Fuerteventura in the distance.Lots of lovely restaurants within a stones throw almost of the property. We found the Island Bistro and the Mexican on Cale Teide very good value.

If you are looking to stay in the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen what better location could you wish for than overlooking the harbour and that is exactly what you get with El Mar 21. Beautifully located and internally well decorated and equipped, I don't think you could wish for a better holiday home in the area.
