Castillo del Mar was a neglected taberna when we took it over, and after working with great local craftsmen & builders for almost five months, we refurbished and transformed it, added a pool, and it was complete to enjoy for holidays. My family and I have shared many wonderful times here and have many treasured memories of Castillo Del Mar and I hope you do too?
Deborah purchased this villa in 2006
Castillo Del Mar is located in one of the few unspoiled fishing villages left on the Island of Lanzarote. If you want to experience the real Lanzarote and the true Canarian way of life, then choosing to stay here offers you just that. A simplistic lifestyle, where young and old come together in the evenings and in the daytime fishing and swimming in the cool Atlantic sea pools are an everyday way of life. The village is virtually unspoiled by tourism and is an ideal escape and somewhere to totally relax. From the local fishing boats to the local farmers who manage to cultivate the dry land and produce traditional Canarian potatoes. The unique sea swimming pools are an ideal way to cool off in the mid day sun as they stretch all along the shore line in the village. You can eat great tapas and drink local wines at (La Piscina) tapas bar by the sea pool and enjoy excellent food at the sea front restaurant 'Sol y Lunas'', especially the fresh fish! Palenki's Restaurant is another unique find, where locals gather and make their own music and evening entertainment, singing traditional Canarian songs. Enjoy staying in a traditional rustic fishing village and explore the rest of the Island at your leisure! If you decide not to hire a car, there is a bus service that runs through the village.
Punta Mujeres is away from mass tourism, which means the prices are a fraction of other resorts on the Island. You can get a fresh coffee at the mini market for only one euro and a glass of wine at Paenki's Restaurant / tapas bar is only 1.50 euro. All the restaurants in the village offer fresh fish at reasonable prices compared to other resorts, which makes it great value and your holiday money goes a little further! Plenty tourist attractions are close to the village including the beautiful town of Haria 'Valley of Thousand Palms' only a short 5 minute car drive away in the mountains. Offering a great Saturday morning market selling local produce and crafts. Punta Mujeres offers you the unique experience of staying in a traditional Canarian village with all the necessary amenities within walking distance. There are three mini supermarkets all within walking distance. Not to mention all the beautiful walks that you can enjoy while staying in the village. One in particular takes you along the shore line and head land to the 'Jameous Del Agua' a very famous attraction on the Island. Watching the sun glistening on the sea as you sit by the ocean takes your breath away and makes Punta Mujeres a very special unspoiled jewel on the Island of Lanzarote.
We really enjoyed our r&r in Lanzarote and the opportunity to get a quick hit of sunshine. We appreciated the extra
touches provided like the beach towels and the basket of goodies waiting for us on arrival. The apartment was everything that we anticipated - nice & spacious - and we felt that Deborah & Alain had a genuine desire to ensure that we enjoy our trip. Hopefully we may be back at some time in the future.

we had a lovely stay,the main bedroom mattress was excellent,i have a very bad back so this was very important ,the linen all so smelt lovely,
the only thing which was not as good was the pool it was so so cold,did not go in which was a shame as was looking forward to it,
but other wise lovely holiday
I had the pleasure of staying in the 3 bed apartment with swimming pool, with a friend and my 2 year old little boy.
From the initial booking we received directions from the airport, places and restaurants to try, which was great as , Luna Y sol became our local. (definitely recommend lunch here)
When we arrived the apartment was spotless, very clean and fresh. There was a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived, which we thought was a great touch.
The pool area was also extremely clean, and we spent a lot of time by the pool and having dinner and drinks on the patio. So quiet and relaxing.
My little boy loved the pool and we were even supplied with a paddling pool just incase ,yet another great touch.
We had an amazing holiday, and will definitely be back. Thank you for all your help and will be recommending to friends and family . Xxx
The village was more quite then expected BUT the house was fantastic, clean, cosy, enough space : just as descripded at home away.
It was nice to get information before and during our stay, thanks for husband houskeeper for taking care of us ....
On the Island there is a lot to see but a car is recommended.
The property is set in a very quite rustic fishing village and is an ideal haven for peace and quite as long as you don't get noisey guests in the apartment above.
Our last 3 days were slightly dampened due to a family who liked scraping chairs along the floor and slamming doors in the apartment above. Apart from that our stay was really good.
Parking can be a little difficult at times and you may need to park further away.
The free WiFi is handy but quiet slow.
The villa is well equipped with everything you need and the supermarket is just up the road. Local restaurants are all very good with El Lago coming out on top....
The owner has always been very accommodating and helpful.
Thank You for helping us enjoy our holiday.
Clean and well appointed 3 bedroom 3 bathroom.
Everything you need should you wish to use the kitchen. Washing machine and ironing facilities if your mood takes you. All bedrooms en suite with showers. Pool area good with sun loungers.
On road parking is a bit hit and miss but it's a quiet one way road.
Supermarkets and restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Sea front also 5 minutes away.
Punta Mujeres is one of the few unspoilt traditional fishing villages left on the Island of Lanzarote. The village offers you a change to be away from mass tourism and the madding crowds and situated next to the lovely village of Arrieta, in the district of Haria. Although a quiet village, restaurants, a tapas bar by the sea and three mini supermarkets are all within walking distance. The tranquil setting and pace of life will allow you to totally unwind and get away from it all.
There are several good restaurants in the village, 'Lunas y Sol' fresh fish restaurant right by the sea (daytime only), Palinki's traditional restaurant / tapas bar, (great for steaks), El Lago, fish restaurant, en route to Arrieta and a tapas bar in the centre of the village by the sea. (A must visit to experience the ambience of the locals and sample their homemade tapas and wines) As well as mini supermarkets, cafes and a delightful pizza parlour. The famous Jameous Del Agua is close to the village and it's possible to walk to it along the head land. Saturday morning markets are very popular in the delightful town of Haria which is a short drive away in the hills. Sample local organic produce and crafts as well as traditional music.
Natural sea swimming pools, unique to Punta Mujeres, run along the shore line throughout the village (safe for children) and very therapeutic. The nearest long sandy beach is around 2klm in the village of Arrieta with a tapas bar right on the beach and play areas for the children. The beautiful white sands blown over from the Sahara, have formed beautiful beaches situated near to the village of Orzola, (around a 10 minute drive north from the property). The hidden lagoon is among them, and if you want to experience total tranquillity, well worth a visit. A lava fall out formed a safe lagoon with warm still waters, ideal for snorkelling.
Visit the local Aloe Vera houses in Punta Mujeres, where you can sample and purchase the unique properties of the plant that grow on the Island.
Walkers & Cycle Paradise: This part of the Island is very popular for walkers and cyclists.
For the more adventurous, take a walk up in the hills to Haria then drop down to the west side of the Island to Famara with it's long stretches of beautiful sandy beaches with breath taking views.
One of the most popular tourist attractions, 'The Mirador Del Rio', is in the district of Haria, offering stunning views of the Island of La Graciosa. Or try a visit to the amazing Cactus Gardens in the village of Mala, again a short drive away from Punta Mujeres. Offering thousands of species of the most amazing flowering cactus.
Golf details: The nearest golf course is situated in Costa Teguise, around 15 minute drive away. A beautiful 18 hole course with immaculate greens, buggies available and a friendly restaurant.
There is plenty to see or just simply chill & enjoy the Canarian Sunshine.
