Just a quick note to make you aware of the wonderful vacation we had at Villa Papagayo - we can all safely say was one of the best times we have had in a long time. The villa was beautiful and, bearing in mind there were 7 of us, there was still plenty of space available. Majority of our time was spent around the pool but we also noted that the grounds surrounding the building are beautifully presented and maintained. Upon our arrival, the villa was very clean and everything we needed was present – it was just like being at home. We are now looking to book a further two week next year and hopefully it will be as good as the last.

Playa Blanca Guide
So you've booked one of our villas in Playa Blanca - now you can find out more about Lanzarote's fastest growing resort.
Playa Blanca (meaning "White Beach") is the most southerly resort on the island of Lanzarote, which is itself situated just 80 miles off the coast of Africa. Surrounded by numerous golden beaches and azure seas, and enjoying almost year round sunshine with temperatures averaging 21°C (72°F), this really is the place to enjoy a family holiday or a sunshine getaway for couples.
Being a relatively new tourist destination, the resort has been able to develop based upon the best ideas of others. For example, whilst there are places to eat, drink and dance until the early hours, there are no mega-nightclubs with hundreds of people pouring on to the streets at closing time; there are plenty of these 25 miles away in the resort of Puerto del Carmen. Developers have also chosen to build the luxurious Marina Rubicon here, surrounded by its designer boutiques and eateries overlooking the yachts, it definitely brings an upmarket feel to the resort.
The main shopping area is in the centre of town and is one third pedestrianised. Here you will find shopping outlets for a wide range of clothes, electrical goods, alcohol and cigarettes. On a practical note, you will also find many cashpoints, supermarkets, a chemist and a lots of places to eat. Not forgetting that our office is also situated here!
Running parallel to the high street, just one block away is the sea-front boardwalk. The boardwalk in Playa Blanca runs the full length of the resort (5 miles) and passes numerous beaches, Marina Rubicon, the harbour and too many restaurants to mention. This is an ideal place for walking/jogging, is wheelchair friendly, and for the most part is populated by restaurants and cafes, plus a few shops. The sea views here are beautiful during the day, but an evening meal is a must to fully appreciate the views of the orange sunset over the Atlantic Ocean.
For those of you who are quite happy to remain in the resort, you'll be glad to know that car hire is no longer a necessity in any of our villas. There is now a bus service that runs back and forth across the resort and all our villas are a short walk away from any of the bus stops. Drop us an email and we'll send a copy of the bus timetable with a map of the stops, the service only costs 1.15€ per trip and runs every half-hour from 6:30am to 10pm (7 days a week). Of course, if you do want to be within walking distances of the town and beaches, we have lots of villas to suit.
Whilst there is lots to do in Playa Blanca, sightseers and shoppers should get out of the resort to discover what delights Lanzarote has to offer. There is a regular bus service that travels between Playa Blanca, Puerto del Carmen (the Biosfera) and Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote; plus a large shopping centre enroute called Deiland. This really will give you every opportunity to shop 'til you drop for everything and anything, at prices more often cheaper than the UK. Note that most of the shops in Arrecife close between the hours of 2pm and 4.30pm every day. If you have a hire car then allow 25 mins to Puerto del Carmen and a further 10 minutes to get to Arrecife.
If you want to travel around the Island we can arrange excursions, car hire or a private driver for you. There really are the most amazing places to see here, from the green lagoons of El Golfo to the martian landscapes of the Timanfaya National Park. The countryside still bears the scars of the volcanic eruptions that started in 1730 and lasted for more than 2000 days!
Travelling up the eastern coast are the fishing villages of Punta Mujeres, Arrieta and Orzola plus the attractions of Jameos del Agua and La Cueva de Los Verdes. These are amazing structures formed from the cooling lava flows to create caves and tunnels. Heading north over the mountains there is the Mirador del Rio, the highest point on Lanzarote with a viewing platform from which to enjoy stunning views to the neighbouring island of La Graciosa. A short drive from here down through Haria, known as the Valley of a Thousand Palms, on to the village San Bartolome. It is here that you will find the Cesar Manrique Foundation, a tribute to the late local artist who influenced much of the architecture and strict building controls on the Island.
