Check in was awful & first impression terrible. Restaurant was shutting & not even a welcome drink of water. 4th bed unmade & no sheets. However after this everything was great.
Rooms fair sized with big balconies & amazing black out curtains. Fresh sheets & towels regularly (although our towels were brown & a little old. Why would you choose this colour?)

My children loved the pools. Very safe with shallow areas for tots. My son loved the large 0.90 metre pool as he could stand easily & no sudden dips. Could maybe benefit from a slide or 2 but great. Did feel cold but fine once in & didn't bother the kids one bit.
Pool bar serves burgers, chips, pizza, hot dogs & after 3pm crepes which my 9 yo loved. All good but I'd have liked to see some jacket potatoes as well maybe with tuna, beans etc. There is some salad but limited. You could eat in the main restaurant but we couldn't be bothered to get dried & dressed.
Location is brilliant. Over the road from shopping centre & 5-10 minute walk to the beach. Lovely walk into the square & chemist nearby. Bus stops & taxi rank just outside.
My children loved the Thomson kids club & would have attended more but we had 4 day trips booked. 2 hour sessions at various times. The 4-6pm slot children can go with their siblings which mine loved. This does get busy so get there on time as they sometimes have to turn people away. Thursdays kids club is closed. I hadn't realised & turned up wondering where everyone was.

I would return to Los Zocos as fab location & v clean with good pools.
A few little tweaks would give it 5 stars from me. Some self service taps in the pool bar as queues sometimes huge, couple of slides in the main pool & a sports bar/lounge area. The agua marina wasn't open in the day so the pool bar was your only option so could get bit samey/busy.
Whilst in Lanzarote we went on several trips I can 100% recommend the catamaran trip Graciosa Sail. Brilliant day & organisation. Jameos del Agua is beautiful & well worth a trip we went as part of a tour & would love to have eaten here & stayed a little longer. Book with Low Cost Holidays in the shopping centre they do great deals and everything was well organised. The grand tour was very informative & you saw loads of the island but was a bit too long for us and 1/2 day would have done.
Have you been to Lanzarote? What hotel did you stay at?
