Which Lanzarote Resort Should I Stay In?

“I am coming to Lanzarote for the first time – which resort should I stay in?”

This is a question I am asked a lot, each of the three resorts in Lanzarote are very different from each other. It’s hard to know where to start as all the resorts are loved by the full range of visitors from teenagers, families, couples, sports enthusiasts and pensioners.

Puerto del Carmen

This book is a great guide to Puerto del Carmen: The Camel Guide to Puerto del Carmen and Tias

Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote’s original resort and closest to Arrecife Airport. What started out life as a small fishing village called La Tiñosa now stretches for 6km along the coast with natural golden sandy beaches.

Puerto del Carmen is probably best known for it’s lively nightlife, just ask for Centro Atlantico which is situated on the main avenida opposite Playa Grande for a plethora of pubs, nightclubs, disco pubs etc.  Don’t let this put you off though, there is much more to this resort than dancing the night away.

You will always find sports enthusiasts swimming, running or cycling along “The Strip”  read more »

Colours by ElisabethConcept

I had heard of other people having their colours done, if I’m honest I didn’t really know what it meant until recently and I didn’t realise just what an effect it could have.

ElisabethConcept is based in the reception area of the exclusive Princesa Yaiza Hotel in Playa Blanca, at first glance it looks like a classy dress and accessories shop, if you step inside to meet Lisa you can learn her secrets to looking and feeling good.

I arrived for my Classic Colour Analysis appointment and was seated at an impressive desk with a mirror, situated within a large tented dressing room. Lisa explained that she wouldn’t be talking during the first part of the session whilst she established which colours we would work with and so we began. I’m not comfortable with staring at myself in the mirror, like lots of women, I notice the faults in my face rather than my assets but it was necessary for this exercise, what’s more no make up is allowed and your hair is taken off your face into a hair net.

During these brief interludes, you get a glimpse of your face from the chin upwards but not what colour cloth has been placed underneath.
