Do it!...

They are also offering the following Insurance when booked direct:

ďWhen you make a booking with us, your Iberostar Extra Care insurance is included. Basic cover for your stay, free of charge.

What does it include?
Medical costs for illness or accidents.
Medical guidance and assistance, and surgery when necessary.
Costs for extending your stay.
Repatriation
Calling a doctor to the hotel.
Emergency medical transportation to the hospital.Ē

Really hope no-one needs this but a good offer if the small print is okay (not had chance to look into it).

Cheers
Les

Thank you to all for your help and advice- especially YorksthireT and OrlandoLes. Booked Lanzarote Park today for a whisker under budget for a side sea view room with AI. After a Blue Light Card, My Iberostar and mobile discount it came in at £1483 pay on arrival. They gave me all of them ! Of course dependant on exchange rate.

Just hope we get to go on this one !

Not terrible but you can see what I mean:

Stains on awning on restaurant (Windows were all filthy as well):

Corridor carpets stained up all over:

Cheap broken pictures on walls:

Permanent leaks never fixed (carpet soaked all week under this):

Fountain feature all smashed:

Corridors full of water:

Rooms like this visible in corridors:

General air of broken and scruffy, even paint just splashed all over floor:



Building site at top:



Just thought it needs a big refurb.
Sorry if others donít agree this was our impression though and we think thereís a lot better.
Sorry to read this - we went roughly 5 years ago and really enjoyed it and have always fancied returning. Perhaps we wonít now.

Havnt read all the thread but we stayed at the h10 Rubicon Palace last Christmas

this was the best Ai in europe we have stayed in outside of Turkey

couldnt really fault any of it, variety of restaurants aside the main buffet, spacious, branded drinks (hendrick / fever tree for example) & being 5* none of the chips & beer round the clock squad

nice spot as well with a pretty flat seafront walk into playa blanca and beyond

Thatís a good price, didnít know they did Blue Light card discount and they look to include insurance so you donít even need that.

Iím hoping I can get there for Xmas if US is out.


Stop booking you lot, you will make it too expensive.

Just booked using Blue Light, early bird discount and Iberostar discount. For 4 family room 7 night over Xmas, Sea view £2300 - bargain! Flights are about £1250. Pay at hotel didnít even want a credit card. Have it as a backup- hopefully any quarantine will be reduced and Ryanair will be flying. If so, we are off! This holiday would in usual times be £6k at Xmas for 4.

For anyone still thinking of or has a free cancellable rate booking with Iberostar - they currently have an early Black Friday code with up to 50% off, just pop Friday20 in the promo code.
Hope this helps someone bag a bargain
Cheers

Thank you so much for this. Upgraded to a sea view Prestige room and still saved about Ä100.
