Lanzarote Football, UD Lanzarote 2 CD Marino 1

26th February 2012

This brilliant win moves the Rojillos up to sixth in the league table following a fantastic 90 minutes of football and then four minutes of heart rendering drama against third placed side Club Deportiva Marino.

The game began and continued at a frantic pace. The Tenerife side posed a severe threat with the league’s top duo,  Balduino and Noah. These strike partners have bagged a total of 35 goals between them this season beating the entire squad of Lanzarote by eight goals.

The movement as an attacking force was electric but the Lanzarote defence stood up to the challenge with honours. This was made even more credible as the Rojillos were without three regulars in the back four due to suspension and injury.

The visitors had several chances to take the initiative but the Lanzarote goalkeeper proved to be in inspired form. In the 14th minute Ayoze cleverly beat the offside trap and squared a perfect pass to Toñito, the striker’s first touch was excellent and from six yards blasted his second touch low into the bottom right hand corner sending Lanzarote 1-0 up.

Both sides immediately went in search of another goal. In the 36thminute striker Balduino found himself inside the area and had a clean strike at goal. His effort was deflected onto a post and just as his strike partner Noah was about to pounce somehow Ruymán scrambled the ball away to safety.

Hotel Review - Los Fariones, Puerto del Carmen

It’s not often we get to review hotels on the island, because we live here!

But last year we won a weekend stay at the Fariones as part of a swimming competition we entered, and we felt it would be a good opportunity to review Puerto del Carmen’s most famous hotel.

Restaurant Hotel Los Fariones  Swimming Pool Hotel Los Fariones

The Fariones was one of the first hotels in Lanzarote and it sits at the old town end of the famous “Strip.” It’s a four star establishment and it has had many famous visitors over the years – indeed we interviewed Bertie Ahern there many years ago, when he was serving as Ireland’s Prime Minister.  read more »

Stone shaped heart on a beach in Lanzarote

The month of February has been incredible! There were very strong winds and waves in the first week causing havoc with the Enduroman triathlon event that weekend, swimmers faced 2m waves and cyclists braved winds gusting up to 70 km/h. We’ve felt cold in the evenings, this was due to the clearer skies and cool wind however the days have generally been warm and sunny with top temperatures consistently reaching 18-21 degrees. The carnivals of Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen were blessed with good weather this year which makes it all the more enjoyable for the thousands of tourists lining the streets to watch the processions. The island is now very dry with the lack of rainfall, normally the hills are bursting with carpets of colour at this time of year as the wildflowers blossom.
