I stayed in the Los Rosales in October 2001. It is a very small complex with 2 pools. It is exceptionally quiet. The rooms themselves were quite big. They were clean and basic. Definitely no frills. I was more than happy with them as I'd paid £250 for 2 weeks through Thomson Just so I thought I'd got a bargain. They have no reception as such or bar or anything like that. However, don't let that put you off. Any problems you go to the Elena apartments which are just across the road. There are safes in the room to which you can hire and I definitely recommend that you hire a safe regardless of where you stay in Lanzarote. I have been to Lanzarote on 20 occasions from 1990 and will be returning in July.
Locationwise as Simon has already said the Los Rosales is excellent, very short walk to the shops, beach etc. For your duty frees walk to the bottom of the street, turn right and under McDonalds there is a shop called Bazaar Charlie. That's where I buy everything.
Supermarkets, the Dos Mil II beside the Los Rosales is hard to beat. Restaurants, it really depends what you are looking for. There are any amount of restaurants in Lanzarote so you will find something to suit you. The Mickey's Simon is talking about do lovely chicken and I often go there in the morning for a bacon baguette. There are many Lanis restaurants in PDC and I have always been happy with those. I was last in Lanza in January and since then have been reading not so favourable reports about Lanis, so I don't know what the situation is.
Hope that helps.
