Suitable for people with restricted mobility : All apartments and the grounds are wheelchair friendly. The pool also has a wheelchair ramp for easy access into the pool.
Summer all year round!: Lanzarote has more sunshine than any of the other Canary Islands and the least rainfall which falls on no more than 16 days in a year. Playa Blanca lies on the Southerly tip of Lanzarote facing Fuerteventura and is reputed to be the sunniest and most sheltered resort on the Island.
The Timanfay national Park s a 20 minute drive from the Villa and was declared a National park in 1974. The park looks like the surface of the moon only more colourful with a superb volcanic landscape. If you only make time for one trip then it must be the trip to the Timanfaya National Park where you can take a camel ride across the parkland, visit the Museo de Rocas museum which has many geological specimens from the park.
Crowning the volcanic hill is the Diablo Restaurant, designed by Cesar Manrique and where much of the food is grilled over a barbecue using the natural heat from the volcano which is 6m (20ft) below the ground.
A new Waterpark has been built on the Lighthouse side of Playa Blanca and this was opened in May 2012

Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed at the Villa at the end of July/beginning of August 2012. The Villa was just what we expected. It was clean and well equipped. There were plenty of pans, crockery and kitchen utensils, all in good condition.
The washing machine came in very handy for refreshing the towels which dried on the clothes drier provided in no time, due to the almost constant sunshine and welcoming breeze.
The private garden is fabulous with sun loungers, a variety of tables and chairs and a barbeque, which we made good use of.
The pool is beautiful and, as many of the villas are not occupied, was almost always empty and used exclusively by us.
Rubicon Marina is a short walk away and has a few cocktail bars and restaurants, but I would recommend hiring a car to see the rest of the Island and the fabulous beaches at Papagayo.
As my daughters and their friend are 20 and 16 years old, there is not much entertainment for their age group within walking distance other than the bowling alley and amusement complex. We did tend to drive them to the nearby Papagayo Centro Commercial where there is a beach and more lively bars and a disco which open until 4am. A taxi back to the villa only cost 3 euros 60 as it is a very short distance.
All in all we had a lovely holiday and would definitely book the Villa again if we decide to return to Playa Blanca
