Hotel Review - Hesperia, Puerto Calero

We recently attended a wedding at the Hesperia, so we took the opportunity to book into the hotel for a couple of nights and to see for ourselves what it is like.

Our first impressions were excellent - we had a fabulous greeting from Antonio on reception, who explained everything to us, and then suggested a discounted room upgrade. We were brought a chilled glass of cava while we filled in the paperwork and we opted to go for the suite instead of the standard room. Its a long walk from reception to the rooms on the front, but well worth it for the view, and we later realised we could park the car in the “bottom” car park and it was then a very short walk to get to and from it.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review, Cevicheria La Esquina Maria

It was thanks to our foodie friends Benn & Zoe that we discovered the Cevicheria La Esquina Maria in Famara.

Cevicheria La Esquina Maria

This Peruvian cafe bar is situated on the seafront row of properties in the village of Caleta de Famara, whilst El Risco and Sol in the same line face out to sea, this establishment faces inwards. There’s something very relaxing about sitting at a table feeling the sand beneath your toes, plus you can’t beat the laid back atmosphere in Famara.
