1 What am I getting with holiday ownership at Club Las Calas?
Holiday ownership or timeshare ownership at Club Las Calas is probably the most simple way of holidaying you could have. First you pick an apartment to suit your individual requirements. This could be one or two bedroom, in a quiet or lively location or whether the balcony has all-day sun, a sea view, or shaded afternoons. You decide what time of year you would like to come. This is called the week number. We then locate your ideal holiday apartment from what we have available. This will be the apartment you holiday in every year in your chosen week/s. And you know exactly what it’s going to be like because you chose it based on what matters to you – from the high standard of accommodation to the view.
2 How does it all work?
We have a couple of different types of holiday ownership at Club Las Calas:
1. Lifetime plan – You chose your apartment as above, pay an initial fee to secure it in your name, and then pay an annual maintenance charge set by the owners’ committee. You will have access to this apartment until 2068.
2. Five-year plan – You chose your apartment, pay a one-time fee and have access to it for five years. There are no other payments after this.
3 What if I don’t know when I want to holiday at Club Las Calas?
You’re not alone! If you’re not sure when you can holiday, we can offer holiday ownership on a floating time basis. With this option, you have the flexibility of holidaying at any time of the year, changing it year on year, subject to availability. These apartments can be booked up to two years in advance and can be purchased on either a lifetime or five-year plans.
4 What apartments do you have for sale at Club Las Calas?
We have one-bedroom apartments, one-bedroom duplexes, two-bedroom apartments, penthouses and a detached bungalow. We also have mobility/wheelchair-friendly apartments with access across the site with ramps and a lift. You can find a list of weeks that we have available on our ownership page.
5 What if I can’t make my week/s anymore?
Life happens, we understand that. So, for a one-time fee you can move your holiday ownership week/s to a different time of year.
6 Can my family use my holiday ownership?
Yes, it is your apartment for that week, so your friends or family can use it with your consent.
7 When’s the best time of year to holiday in Lanzarote?
Anytime! Lanzarote has a fantastic climate making it an all-year-round destination. If you have to travel during school holiday periods, we have apartment weeks available, or if you prefer to holiday in a quieter or cooler time, we have weeks available then too.
8 Do I have to pay now and how do I pay?
No, under UK and European law you have a 14-day cooling-off period to ensure you don’t just purchase when you are in holiday mode. We don’t take any deposits and the amount can normally be paid when you are back in the UK through our management company, Resort Solutions Ltd.
9 What happens to my holiday ownership if I die? Do I have to pass it on to my family?
Not if they don’t want it! If anything happens to you, the Club will take the ownership back.
10 Can I go to other places if I fancy a change?
Yes, if you fancy a change from visiting Club Las Calas, you can join exchange companies such as RCI or Dial an Exchange. For an annual membership fee and an exchange fee, you can deposit your week in their system and choose to holiday in another resort from thousands across the world. These resorts are located throughout the UK, Europe, the US, Africa, Australia and South America.
However, we find the majority of our clients keep coming back here…
11 Do you live here?
Yes, we do live in Lanzarote!
