The Lanzarote Princess...wow what a very nice place for a week at xmas.It was only quarter full but it was uncrowded and relaxing.We had our 4 yr old grandson with us and Anna at the Daisy club was great 4 hrs a day in two shifts was a great break.Ok some parts were worn but the rooms were large and clean.The food was plentiful and varied..and champagne and caviar for breakfast!!! We couldn't really fault it...pool was cold...so what! We will be going again.OH one thing...don't bother with the Fuerteventura trip...too expensive and not worth it.

Useful Tips:

The marina market wed and sat good...the seafront to town lovely walk nice shops...cheaper at the back!! We did the texas rancho eve...excellent!!

We stay in Puerto del Carmen which at the moment is having a lot of money invested on the main road. This didn't spoil our holiday in any way as everything was kept behind barriers and even the work men said good morning, lol. The main road is longer than you think. We have been before and never ventured passed the Casino, I'd recommend carrying on walking as there are some lovely little cove beaches further on and good places to eat. (See below) If you can hire a car, (car hire is very reasonable by the way) I would definitely recommend seeing this beautiful island.

Useful Tips:

There are some wonderful restaurants in Puerto del Carmen and I don't usually recommend any as we all have different tastes but I feel I should give a big 'thumbs up' to Woodley's. It's on the main road, UPSTAIRS, near the SPAR at San Antonio hotel. Can you tell directions are not my strong point, ha ha. You can walk straight past the place as they do not go all out on street furniture, I suppose they don't have to because once you have been you will recommend it to everyone. For a cheap time out, definitely take a trip to Puerto Calero harbour, it's beautiful. The coach trip to Teguise Market is good value at 4 euros although the stall are repetitive, but isn't any market. Take the trip to the caves, they are amazing. If sight seeing, etc isn't your thing, then the beaches will not disappoint, they are very clean but don'e expect fine sand remember it's a volcanic island. One tip.... do not buy fresh milk it's usually sour by the time you get it home.

Comments:

First rtime in this island and we will look no further. It was everything we could hope for. The ON THE BEACH site (prior to leaving) were first class hence the mention here. Our apartment was clean and comfortable but very basic on a self catering deal. Staff were brilliant. WELL DONE "ON THE BEACH"

Useful Tips:

Euro exchange rates were better than in the UK. Last minute Travel Co do the best trips as their couriers are mainly Brits. Chinese eateries offer by far the best value for money.
