We want to this hotel on my brothers recommendation and would recommend it to anyone the food was really good and the choice was excellent. No beach as its too rocky at the hotel but there's a beautiful beach about 20 mins walk but there were a few older nudists which was a bit of a shock as I wasn't expecting it with families there. it's about 40 mins walk to the centre along a promonade which is nice as its breezy. There you can take a boat to fuerterventura which only takes about 20 mins. There's a market at the harbour once a week which is about 20 mins walk form the hotel. This hotel is good value for money.

We stayed at this resort all inclusive for a week. We booked a private transfer with direct shuttle, which was great. We loved the hotel, the staff, rooms, food, we're all excellent. It really does cater for everyone's needs. The only downside we found was the evening entertainment was poor. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This is a great hotel, spacious room, great variety of food. Where this hotel excels is in its staff attitude, you cant pass a member of staff without receiving a cheery welcome. They are always pleased to help with a cheery smile. Special compliments to Otman in the restaurant, who learnt our names and went all out to be pleasant and helpful. We made use of the adults only pool, lovely quiet and tranquil except for the building works going on at some part of each day. But this didn't detract from our enjoyment too much. Would we go again, yes we probably would.

Tourist Information

Weather

Cheap Playa Blanca holidays are more or less a fixture for tourists the whole year round, thanks in no small part to the consistently warm Lanzarote temperatures - consistently hot, that is! Hot it may be, averaging around 18° Celsius in December and 26° Celsius by the summer, but sultry breezes, courtesy of the trade winds, mean you’re never flustered. Having said that, ensure you have your sun cream on at all times to protect you from the sun's rays.

Jabs

As UK, Courses or boosters sometimes advised: hepatitis A (not normally for package tourists).

Electricity

European Style 2-Pin Sockets, 220/225V
