Lanzarote Stories and Tips

Ruby Wedding Holiday

Swimming Pool Photo, Lanzarote, Tenerife

This resort is ideal for both couples and families. It is not too large and has three clubs the facilities of each can be used. There are three heated pools, three restaurants and nightly entertainment. The bars all close at 11:30, so there is no noise after then. There is an excellent leisure suite and gym for a modest charge. The friendly helpful staff speak good English. All queries and repairs etc are dealt with immediately.

Unit Satisfaction
We had a one-bedroom unit. It was very clean and serviced every other day. The kitchen was well equipped and we self catered with ease. The cooking working area was a little on the small side but adequate for two.
The lounge area had comfortable seats and was well decorated. There was a TV and radio with BBC and some Sky. The patio area had loungers and a table and chairs. It was not in the sun, but as we had plenty of sun in the day this was more of an advantage. It overlooked the pool.
There was a drying area for clothes and they dried quickly.
The bedroom had twin beds. There was good cupboard space for clothes and it was very quiet so we slept very well. There were extra blankets and pillows, but we only needed a sheet.
The bathroom was very clean and fairly large with a lot of shelves for toiletries. There was a bidet.
The unit would be all right for a family, having a bed in the lounge, but there is no privacy for couples sharing.
We did not use the restaurants but there are three on the complex and very many in the town.
There are lots of supermarkets.

About the area
We had a car but the public transport is good. Our car only cost 107 Euros for the week and we hired it at the airport on arrival. It is only 9 km from the airport to the resort and the directions given are clear. The roads are not congested. Don’t fill up with petrol, as it is not a large island.

There is plenty to do. Timanfaya National Park is a very interesting volcanic region. Playa Blanca has a lovely beach and the old town and port at Puerto Del Carmen is very pretty. We went on a submarine trip, which was exciting. There are also attractive coast walks and you can walk for miles.

There are more things we want to see and we will certainly return again to this resort.
