Overview

About the property

APARTMENTS MARCASTEL is a private complex with several of the apartments rented out for holidays. Situated in a quiet area of Playa Blanca, yet only a few minutes walk from the beautiful Dorada beach, the Rubicon Marina and the Central Avinada, with their many fine restaurants, bars and shopping.

Marcastel is therefore ideally situated to relax away from it all yet still enjoy all the amenities of the resort without the need to drive.

It is about 35 minutes from the airport by taxi or car. Alternatively there is a half hourly bus service direct from the airport to Playa Blanca Bus Station. (Less than 3 Euros per person.) with a Taxi from the bus station to the apartment 4 Euros.

Large balconies to front & rear with views to the Ajaches Mountains, both offer ample space to relax, dine or take advantage of private sun bathing from dawn till dusk.

Playa Blanca is the most southerly resort on Lanzarote with views across to Fuerteventura, (only a mere 11 Km by ferry, which leaves from the harbor several times a day) It is beautiful and relaxed, with a delightful promenade, interesting shops and superb restaurants within ten minute walk from the apartment.

Take a walk by the sea. A paved promenade now runs for approximately 4 miles along the length of the resort, from the new marina to east, taking in the harbour and continuing out to the light house on the western point.

Walk or drive a little further east and enjoy the white sandy beaches of Papagayo

A drive up to Femes early evening not only rewards you with good food, the view is awesome.

If its fish takes your fancy then it is well worth the drive to the village of El-Golfo, again best early evening to appreciate the colours & spectacle of the landscape, ocean & sun sets.

It is an excellent base for sight seeing and has many advantages for those looking for sun, sea and sand with a variety of beaches close to the apartment, said to be some of the best on the island.

About Beryl Harrison

Our first visit to Lazoarote was twenty one years ago, when traveling from the Airport to our accommodation in the Old town of Puerto Del Carmen "Stunning scenery, no high rise buildings, everything clean and bright, all topped off with a a view over the bay and a magnificent Sunset" I instantly fell in love with Lanzarote.

It was on that very first visit that we put down a deposit on an apartment in Puerto Del Carmen which we took over six months later and where we spent many memorable holidays.

Playa Blanca had began to develop at a pace and we found ourselves spending more time there and when they began building the new Marina we decided to look for a property close by and the rest is history.

Beryl Harrison purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Beryl Harrison chose Playa Blanca - Yaiza

Apartments Marcastel is situated in a quiet central area of Playa Blanca, only a few minutes walk from the beautiful Dorada beach, the Rubicon Marina and the Central Avinada, with their many fine restaurants, bars and shopping.

It is therefore ideally situated to relax away from it all yet still enjoy all the amenities of the resort without the need to drive and is an ideal base from which to explore the Island and all it has to offer.

Everything we could of wished for

  • 5 of 5

We hired a car and found the directions provided worked really well and, as a bonus, there is plenty of parking available by the complex. We arrived around 10pm and Lynn (who looks after the place on behalf of Phil and Beryl) had left the outside light on so it was really easy and safe to navigate the steps. We were not disappointed when we entered the apartment, it is kept beautifully clean and tidy, everything you could possibly need is available and it's bright and airy. The balconies are great for catching the sun, so you can have your meals whilst still topping up your tan! The apartment, for us, is well positioned as it is just a short 10/15 minute walk to Dorada beach and the promenade. Once on the promenade you can turn left and walk to Marina Rubicon or right to head into the main town with its many restaurants, bars and shops. However, we ate at Casale Franco in the Papagayo Centre just by Dorada beach and had a fabulous view of the coastline and a wonderful meal. As we had a car we drove to the SuperDino in Playa Blanca (near the bus station) and found it to have the best selection and better price than the more local HyperDino Express and Spar. If we went back to Playa Blanco we would definitely see if the apartment was available to rent. The support and information provided by Phil & Beryl was brilliant and Lynn took great care of us whilst we were there.

Excellent apartment in Playa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, clean, well equipped apartment. For value for money, it exceeds expectations. As stated it was good to have two balconies - one at the front, and one at the rear - so you were able to sit out in the sun/shade any time of the day. The WiFi was strong (which is a bonus in Lanzarote). As we don't like to go out every night, it was also good to have all the satellite channels - BBC,Sky sports, movies etc. Also, cooking a meal at night was no problem either, as there is a full sized hob and oven.

It is less than 10 minutes to the promenade. Once there, you turn either left, to take you towards the Marina Rubicon, or right, to the resort centre.

There is no pool on site, but that was not a problem for us. After our walk (long) in the morning, Andrew would sit and read in the shade in the afternoon (got too hot for him) and I would take myself off to a hotel for a swim. I prefer to do this, although the beach was only 10 mins walk away.

We have been to Lanzarote over 15 times, and mainly stayed in villas or apartments, but as I said earlier, Beryl and Phils apartment exceeds expectations

Lovely, very clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

From the very start the owners were extremely helpful answering any questions I had.

The apartment was very clean and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay.

Being only a short walk from the beach, restaurants and shops made it even more perfect and we shall definitely being going back in the near future.

The owners really couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

Very good value for money.

Thanks again Beryl and Phil
