When Concorde Came To Lanzarote

It was on 18th November 1999 when G-BOAC, a British Airways Concorde, landed at Arrecife airport. She was bringing in passengers who were due to embark on a luxury cruise setting out from the island.

Word went out, and the airport surroundings were filled with people to watch the aircraft as she landed and taxied to the gate. Work stopped on all the other aircraft on the apron as workers paused to see the supersonic jet.   read more »

What's It Like Being Treated By Lanzarote Hypnotherapist Stuart Downing?

I’ve received two more testimonials for the work Stuart Downing is doing on his regular visits to the island, and they make interesting reading.

The first is from someone I know very well, who visited Stuart to help put an end to almost 40 years of cigarette smoking:

I’ve never been hypnotised before, and I was interested and curious about the process. Stuart sat me in a comfortable chair, put some headphones on me, and spoke to me over a soundtrack of gentle, relaxing music.   read more »

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.
