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 »

All Inclusive 2013

All Inclusive (AI) accommodation is a touchy subject in Lanzarote, tourists opting for this kind of holiday on the island are blamed for the demise of bars and restaurants situated within the resorts.

Meeting The Sunrockers!

It’s been a year since we visited Sun Park Living in Playa Blanca, and we were invited again to speak to some of the residents at this innovative community for the over 50’s.

Yoga  Mike

A lot has happened in that time, and Sun Park now has high occupancy from people who have made it either a permanent base or are regular visitors to the place. It has a vibrant atmosphere, with plenty going on, and while we were there, many of the Sunrockers were preparing the gardens in a whole new section to allow for more arrivals in the coming weeks. The communal areas have had a lot of attention, with the jewel being the bar area, which, under the leadership of resident Mike, has been redecorated and refurbished and now boasts comfortable seating and a well stocked honesty bar, with regular get together and barbecues.  read more »

Lanzarote Marathon Holiday

We’re so spoilt having our lovely warm climate all year round, never having to think about wet or cold weather gear before heading out into the sunshine for a run or bike ride.

If your training is already starting to suffer with the onset of a cold, dark winter, we wanted to tempt you with the thought of booking a holiday in Lanzarote during early December, when you can also participate in the Lanzarote International Marathon. Flights are normally cheap at that time of year, plus wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy some winter sunshine before Christmas.

There are three distances available for the Lanzarote Marathon which takes place on the 8th December 2013, choose from a quarter, half or full marathon distance. Sands Beach Resort has special 1-4 night or 5-7 night packages available, starting from €34 per  read more »
