we booked this apartment independently because of the location and the fact that all apartments are south facing (and my friend has been coming here for about fifteen years). and said it was great. A ten minute taxi ride from the airport and we were ready to relax. A lovely apartment, clean bright and everything we needed (no it didn`t have a television but if we`d wanted to watch tv in march we`d have stayed by the fire at home!!) Not very big anf the pool was freezing, but we also had use of Ocean Club (the parent company) facilities across the road and they were great with a beautiful heated pool and a good bar restaurant area. Both complexes were very friendly. Also both were gated and this gave us a feeling of security though safes were available!!!!!!
A five minute walk took us to the beach and promenade and it was lovely to walk to the old port one way or all the way up to playa los pocillos the other way, with plenty of coffee / cake shops and bars to tempt us en route. Also plenty of good restaurants along the front to dine in the evening.
A really great place for a winter sunshine break and the weather was really kind to us. We are already looking to rent one of Ocean Clubs villas for next year.

We love Lanzarote and earlier this year we had our 7th holiday with Ocean Club Holidays. We have stayed four times in Club Oceano, and this was the third time in Princesa Ico accross the road. Both locations are great, and within walking distance of shops, restaurants and beach. (Though a bit hilly if you have mobility problems).
Princesa Ico apartments are a bit smaller than those over in Club Oceano, but are comfortable, clean and more than adequate for two. It is a quiet location, especially if you have an upstairs apartment with balcony. The pool isn't heated, but if that bothers you, you can pop accross the road and use the one at Club Oceano, and of course you can use the bar over there too. The reception staff are very helpful and will make bookings for you, and the bar staff are friendly and make a wicked Sangria! The food is your basic British grub, but is tasty and plentyful, and of course there are many other places where you can eat a variety of cuisines. Praise too for the efficient UK staff. Will be back.
