In summary the month of May has been warm and grey in Lanzarote.

Playa del Ancla in Costa Teguise The 1st of May arrived with a yellow alert for rain and strong gusts of wind in high areas.

A Calima started on the 11th May which brought spectacular lightening shows and thunder storms from the Thursday to Sunday. Despite the thunder it didn’t really clear the air, the weather continued hot and muggy through to the 19th of May when it rained.

Lose Yourself in Los Pocillos...

In the Oxford Dictionary world of only nouns, Los Pocillos would be defined as “The sprawling, atmospheric, open and airy neighbourhood, perched neatly between Matagorda and Puerto del Carmen.” Pronounced “Pos-sea-os” for us Anglo speakers, the area consists of about 1.5km of promenade, a ‘ginormous’ beach (which we are even underplaying at that) and some great bars and cafes. In fact, it would actually be a safe assumption to say that most tourists may not realise they are staying or passing through in the area, as it is so often viewed as an extension of the main Avenida stemming from Puerto del Carmen - but where is the harm in that!? It’s perfectly fine as long as you don’t miss out on the wonderful pockets of charm to be found in this invigorating gateway. For those in the know, the title of this article may seem a little ironic. With the aforementioned beach – one of the widest on the island - and open roads equipped with a generous promenade, getting lost in Los Pocillos may not exactly be the easiest thing to do; especially if you are on the lam. However, we are going to try and help you do just that...

San_Antonio_Pool_Area Upon entering Los Pocillos from either direction, you will find two Hotels guarding the invisible doorways. The San Antonio sits closest to Puerto del Carmen with the Los Jameos Playa tickling the ribs of nearby Matagorda on the far side. It is this, latter hotel, which truly shines as a beacon of all things Lanzarote. This four star hotel is noted for so many things, knowing where to begin is a hardship in itself. Renowned dining and superlative staff are both worth a generous mention, but it is also the decor of this grand hotel which stands out. Decorated in typical Canarian fashion, the hotel creates an easy air of history, rustic charm and warmth. The interior was designed by two of the late César Manriques’ students. Many will already know César as the forefather of much of Lanzarote’s architecture and essentially creating the island landscape we know of today. This great man is at the heart of so many of Lanzarote’s focal points, and to get the chance to stay in a glorious hotel linked with his special touch is a real treat. For those  read more »
