"Papagayo/Playa Blanca" Playa Blanca by duet62
Playa Blanca Travel Guide: 43 reviews and 120 photos
Papagayo is about 20km from Playa Blanca and is very peaceful, ideal for a restful holiday, not your actioned packed. It is quiet far from the busy parts of the island. Beware though there is a nudist/naturist beach, although no one really bothers or takes any notice, but if you have teenagers, they will be shocked.
In Playa Blanca itself there is more to do with some lovely beaches the best being Playa Dorada, great for snorkelling.
We had read plenty of reviews on this hotel, which all came out great, so was really looking forward to this holiday. But slightly disappointed when I actually arrived. The structure of this hotel was fantastic, and yes the staff were very helpful. The areas around the hotel are very clean, the pools are fantastic and the room was great. Well worth the money paid.
The food on the other hand, maybe I was expecting too much, but did not think the food was upto 4* standard, there was variety but would not eat some of the food because (my husband being a butcher) the cuts of meat were old, the eggs they did at breakfast were old eggs and so tended to stick to salads and croissants.
Also the entertainment was not brilliant.......the kids enjoyed it at the games level, but the nightly entertainment was not upto much.
This would be a great hotel if in a different area, it is away from the main towns and to get anywhere you need to either hire a car or take all the excursions which becomes expensive.
Great if you are looking for a quite time for relaxation only.
THE BIG PLUS WAS ON OTHER REVIEWS I READ ABOUT THE COCKEREL WAKING YOU UP EARLY WELL I WAS RIGHT OPPOSITE THE YARD IT USED TO LIVE IN..........IT IS NO LONGER THERE
This was a great tour which explains a lot of how Lanzarote is today. You get to ride on camels, see Fire Mountain and the Timafa National Park which is spectacular........also get to taste some of the local wine (bonus).
The camels are really looked after too so no worries there. They do half a day then get the next day off........oh to be a camel
- Pros:Nothing but rest and relaxation
- Cons:Not much colour on landscapes
- In a nutshell:Go once for the experience but not again
