Although somewhat modernised, it has lost none of its charm and there are plenty of restaurants catering to every taste and in the evenings you can watch the locals taking part in a game of boules.
Also from the complex a 10 minute walk takes you to the new Biosfera shopping centre on four levels which has all the latest fashion shops including Zara, Pull and Bear, Bershka etc. The Biosfera lies between the Old Town and the New Town.
There are regular local bus links nearby, enabling easy access to other areas of interest. The nearest bus stop is located only 150m from the complex.
La Bamba restaurant opposite the complex provides good quality and value. At the Centro Montana Tropical at the southern end of the complex 100 metres away you will find Mario’s Pizzeria who also have take-a-ways. It is just one of many family friendly bars, shops, English butcher and restaurants in this small centre which also has a well stocked supermarket.
The nearest sandy beach is Playa Chico. This small sandy beach with a rocky shore and beautiful sea views is only 10 minutes walk down hill and is great for a quick sunbathe, and if you’re interested in water sports, this is where to go for Scuba Diving, Snorkelling, paragliding, Banana Boating and Jet Skiing amongst other things. You will find sunloungers and umbrellas for hire.
A further 5 minute walk will take you to lively, main resort of Puerto del Carmen which offers 5km of golden sandy beaches. This is a spacious, safe and sandy beach and has an EU Blue Flag for cleanliness and water quality. You will find sunloungers and umbrellas for hire. Playa Grande or Blanca as its sometimes known is the favourite beach and allows safe swimming for families. It also has pedalo rides and banana boat rides.
Puerto del Carmen is the busiest and principal resort on the island and Lanzarote's oldest and largest resort, where shops, bars and restaurants line 5km of coastal road - it's the focal point for energetic nightlife together with being a lively and busy holiday scene during the day. Lots of laid back bars line the promenade - Avenida de las Playas (the beach avenue). This road is the main centre of activity in the resort, and restaurants, hotels, shops, sports bars and fast food centres line this promenade.
One side of Avenida de las Playas is a range of open-fronted eateries, bars and shops and on the other side is a delightful flower-decked promenade alongside landscaped gardens and cycle track and a vast beach of golden sand.
Also known as “the Strip” it is great for the young visitors and several night clubs and countless bars and casino make an amazing night out. There's more of a bar feel to the nightlife but there's plenty of live music and clubs on offer. Avenida de las Playas becomes Lanzarote's busiest entertainment district with the focal point being Centro Atlantico which is located halfway along the avenue and has something for all tastes and budgets ranging from pubs and cocktail bars to cabaret venues, and all-night dance clubs.
The main shops along the Avenida de las Playas sell a variety of craft goods, souvenirs, beachwear, sports goods, perfumes, jewellery, fashions and top-brand electrical and photographic goods at cut prices. There are similar boutiques in the old town and some are worth looking at for attractive, unusual summer clothes.
We are in Holland again, after a great week in Puerto del Carmen. We loved the apartment; especially the big balcony with sea view. It was very clean and we got new towels twice; very good service. Also the swimming pool was nice; with enough sunbeds. It was quiet; exactly what we wanted.
We had dinner at Mario's (two times) as you suggested and we enjoyed it. We also eat fresh fish at Mardeleva, as you advised; it was very good. And of course we walked to Puerto de Calero; a nice walk!
We hired a car for 2 days; we explored the island in the north and also went to the Papagayo beaches.
So we had a very good time and we enjoyed our stay at your apartment very much!

We stayed over Christmas & New Year. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked the apartment for this coming Christmas & New Year.
John & Teresa have thought of everything and their apartment has everything your own home has. The kitchen has plenty cooking utensils and various sized pots/pans - it even has a window looking out over the ocean.
The bedroom has loads of wardrobe and drawer space and the twin beds are very comfortable. I am prone to backaches but I never had any problem with it at all.
The lounge is large with a sofa bed and 2 armchairs, flat screen TV and DVD player, which we liked as we didn't go out every night but watched DVDs sometimes.
The best of all, though, is the large L-shaped balcony which got the sun from the moment it rose until it set in the evening. Even at Christmas time there were days we had to put up the umbrella as it was too hot, but being L-shaped, there was a shed area too.
Another practical idea John & Teresa have thought of - a shopping bag on wheels. Being near the top of a hill, the shopping trolley was used a lot to haul the groceries home from the supermarket instead of having to carry plastic bags. My husband and I are both 66 and we managed the hill okay, although we did get a taxi home at night if we had been out and had one or two "refreshments" ha ha.
I would definately recommend this apartment.
My husband and I (both 66) stayed in B12 over Christmas & New Year 2015. John and Teresa have thought of most things when stocking/furnishing their apartment. The large L-shaped balcony was brilliant as it got the sun from the minute it rose in the morning until it set in the evening. Even at Christmas time there were days we had to sit under the umbrella for shade and there was plenty space for the large table & chairs, plus a couple of sunbeds and the washing line.
There was a nice sofa and two armchairs in the lounge, flatscreen TV and a DVD player, which we liked as we didn't go out every night and could watch DVDs while still enjoying a "small refreshment".
The twin beds were very comfortable with good thick matresses. I am prone to back problems but didn't have any aches or pains at all and there is loads of wardrobe and drawer space.
The kitchen is compact but has everything you need with a full-sized cooker, 4-ring hob and oven. We cooked chicken and steaks etc and it all turned out good. There is plenty of cooking utensils and pots/pans of various sizes.
We loved the shopping bag with wheels left for holidaymakers convenience. As the apartment is on a hill, it came in very handy to take to the supermarket and wheel it up the hill.
All in all, we had a very pleasant holiday - we have booked with John & Teresa for this Christmas & New Year for 3 weeks.
We stayed at Teresa and John's lovely apartment in Lago Verde in April and loved it so much that we are returning this year for another beautiful week in the Canarian sunshine. Wonderful self catering apartment that has everything that you need to have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
The complex boasts an immaculate pool area with a pool bar serving excellent food and lovely sangria!
The apartment is located a short walk from the beautiful harbour and the amazing playa chica where you can snorkel with a huge array of colourful fish. The apartment is also close to many restaurants and bars but also far enough away not to cause any noise nuisance. Two excellent restaurants within a stones throw of the apartment are Mario's and La Bamba which both serve amazing food with a warm and friendly ambience.
Our second visit here is sure not to be our last!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your apartment and the staff were friendly
and helpful so much so that we are considering a long winter break in the future.
The advert was spot on and the info in the apartment was really useful and even the hill was not too daunting !
Our only concerns would be evening noise from La Flora ( Birdy song ) although this did end around 11pm, and poor wifi which cost extra in the apartment, but all out of your control.
I had a weeks holiday in the Lago Verde complex. I could've have been more thrilled with my holiday. The apartment is excellent,clean and has everything you need at had for self catering. Location is excellent as well as it is literally a 2 minute walk to the closed shop and restaurants/ bars. Its a 10-15 minute walk to the harbour and only half hour walk to the main area for shopping! The walk to port colero is brillaint as it takes you right along the cliff side looking onto the ocean. Close at hand,only a 15 minute walk is playa chica beach,where I has the 1st hand experience of swimming amongst fish and coral reefs. If you want a lazy day there is also the apartments communal pool and bar for a refreshing beer or and ice-cream
All in all if anyone chose to use the apartments they would not be disappointed.
My friend and I spent a great week in Lanzarote. the apartment was as described and the complex was near local restaurants, the pool shack was very handy for meals and the local area easy to get around. The old harbour area was lovely and only a 5 minute walk from the apartment. I would certainly recommend John and Theresa's apartment and hope to visit again.
Lago Verde is situated above the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen, a ten minute walk to the beaches of Playa Chica for a variety of watersports and Playa Grande with 5km of golden sand. Nearby is shopping and outstanding restaurants that cater to all tastes. Puerto del Carmen which is the main tourist resort on the island of Lanzarote is a 10 minutes taxi drive from Arrecife airport.
