Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Sorrento di Italia Restaurant in Puerto del Carmen

This restaurant is greatly located near San Antonio Hotel, before you reach the Spar supermarket and overlooking the sea.

Since it was New Year's Eve after all, we decided to play it safe so we had booked a table for 3 for 7 pm. The place was not full yet, but it was much busier by the time we left.

Although it's English owned, and the name of the restaurant is Italian, the menu, the wine list and the staff have a strong Spanish influence. Having said that, my companions for the night were Italian and the staff tried successfully some  read more »

One Week On - The Search For Margaret Holt Continues

The sun has gone down on another day of searching here in Lanzarote, and it has now been a full week since Margaret was last seen. Teams of emergency services volunteers and locals spent the day searching the many paths of the island fruitlessly. Islanders of several nationalities joined up with the official teams and also covered areas alone.

Margaret’s son Ben, his wife Clare and their friends were part of the search team and were met by The British Consul from Las Palmas for a late debrief this afternoon. At the meeting they were told that official support cannot be offered over the weekend, and this means that only local volunteers will be able to continue the search tomorrow.

We’re appealing for help to join the family in a grid search from Orzola, where Margaret was last sighted – this is on the advice of the professional search and rescue services. If you can join us, please be at the church in Orzola at 9AM tomorrow morning.  read more »

The Search For Margaret Holt Continues In Lanzarote

There has been a confirmed sighting of Margaret in Famara last Friday at 1115 AM. The person who spent time with her was able to describe a distinguishing feature.

Her son in law, Ben Riley, has traced a route he feels she would logically have taken from there, based on conversations she had where she expressed a desire to reach the highest parts of the island and to visit Haria, the valley of a thousand palms.

There’s a meeting of the official search teams this morning to discuss plans for the day, and in the meantime, Ben has asked if local volunteers could help by walking his likely route from each end today.

If you can help please contact:

Jules on 603 451 642 if you can walk from the northern end – meeting in Haria Plaza at 10AM

Mick on 686 018 130 if you can walk from Famara end – meeting at the supermarket in the bungalows at Famara at 10AM  read more »
