    Lost count of the amount of times I have been but my favourite area and hotel was the Sol Lanzarote Aparthotel in Matagorda. Great location, great food and a great price.

    Been 4 times too.

    Timanfaya Golf in C.T. – Half Board- Food average. Hotel too far out at the back of the resort. Enjoyed C.T. but not as much as Playa Blanca.

    Balcon Del Mar in PDC. – Self Catering. Apartments cheap and cheerful. Close to the old harbour which I believe is the best area of PDC. It’s a long way to the main strip if you are more into partying. PDC is my least favourite destination on the island.

    Lanzasur Club in Playa Blanca. – Self Catering. Decent facilities but other guests we spoke to on AI complained that the food was awful. Very close to Flamingo Beach. Playa Blanca is beautiful and relaxed with a more refined feel than PDC. Found some great places to eat at cheap prices.

    Natura Gardens in P.B. – Self Catering. Very nice place if a little far away from the main resort, but as I have already said P.B. fabulous!!

    Hire a car and get out and see lots of the island. It really is worth it. The experience is far better (in my opinion) than staying in one place and judging a whole island on that experience.. Autoreisen are cheap.

    Trips we recommend would be – Timanfaya National Park – El Golfo- Famara Beach- La Graciosa- El Mirador – The Cactus Gardens (think its Jameos) and the underground cave tour (think it’s called Cueva De Los Verdes)

    Well John, I have been coming to Lanzarote for close on 20 years and proud to say I have never stayed in a hotel, PDC, CT and PB have some of the most fantastic apartments, in these beautiful resorts that are not owned by so called tour operators.
    I am 59, dont know how old you are, but I like to be my own boss and not told what to do, hotels tend to do things by the clock, meal times are set down and people telling you what to do.
    Believe me mate, if you want the best out of your holiday, get on the internet and find a good well equiped apartment with good sea views and a pool, eat where and when you like, go where you want, relax and let the sun, sea and scenery do the rest.
    Have a good Holiday.

    Been to Lanzarote loads of times, twice with my family & on girls holidays every year for 9 years (sometimes twice a year). Call me sad but we alays stay at the Celeste apartments. Reasonably priced, spotlessly clean & tidy (when we arrive anyway!) lovely staff and slap bang in the middle of CT. What more ca you ask for?

    We’ve been going to Lanza twice a year for the past 5 years, love it!! We always rent a private villa in PDC, we prefer our own space/pool, rather than follow the hoards. Going again in 12 weeks, can’t wait!

      Bless your heart Carole. How wonderful you are taking your husbands ashes to a place he loved. I do hope you will return.

    We have been going to Lanzarote for the last 18 years we are going again at the end of the month this will be our 22nd visit, prefer to stay in Costa Tequise but have also stayed in PDC and los Posillios. Our fav hotel is Tequise Player, but have stayed in many others with no complaints!

    Hi John

    Been to Lanzarote 8 times, cant get enough of the place.. Only ever stay in PDC because i think its the most diverse and offers a little bit of everything in comparison to the other resorts..Ive stayed as follows (il rate out of 10 for accomodation/location only)

    Corona Mar Once 8/10 (Lovely apartments, nice location, steps the only downside)
    Club De Mar Once 9/10 (These apartments are no longer available unfortunately..excellent location, massive apartments and very clean)
    Los Pueblos 4 times 9/10 (Best apartments ive stayed in, top of old town, very clean, great size and brilliant memories)
    Plaza Azul Once 6/10 ( These apartments were just ok, top of hill beside Mulligans in new town, wouldnt go back unless necessary)
    Playa Club Once 8/10 (excellent location, clean apartments, but lotssss of children in summer months..pool bar could do with refurb)

    All in all, no matter where you stay in PDC, i feel you get good value..would love to be going back this year
