Matagorda is lovely - perfect for a quiet escape!

Matagorda is small but lovely! It's quiet but it's got everything a family would need. The beach is beautiful, long, golden and sandy...the prominade runs for miles and is flat, well kept, and spotless clean - ideal for an evening walk, jog or run. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes - anything from quick snacks to pastas, pizzas, steaks, seafood and lots more. There isn't a huge array of discobars so it's not "young and lively" - but it's perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday with less hussle and bussle. You can even walk to the top of the runway at Lanzarote airport and see the planes as the come in to land - kids would find this amazing. Our family loved it here.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The long sandy beach, gorgeous sunny weather, and long spotless prominade.

fab beach beside hotel,lovely walks plenty to do and see

Matagorda is an ideal family destination, only 10 mins approx from airport,plenty of lovely restaurents. Visit the sportsmans bar is recommended, plenty of screens to catch up on any sports event while on hols but also a very welcoming bar tender who is very knowledgeable about area. Lpvely shopping area for souviners only a short stroll in any direction. Yet you can be in the center of pota del Carmen in about 6 mins by taxi for a very cheap fare or walk at an easy pace and get there in about 30mins browsing in the various shops enroute.

The best thing about my stay was ...

No hills to walk and proximity to beach, shops etc and airport

Fabulous, convenient and just right for a relaxing break.

Matagora is set between the airport and Puerto del Carmen. It is a small urbanization but has a neat shopping area with two supermarkets and loads of different restaurants and bars, without being too commercial. It is busy but not crowded and has all the amenities we want as an older couple. There is, however, plenty for the kids and a lovely sandy beach. I would recommend it more strongly but don't want too many people to go there and spoil it!!

The best thing about my stay was ...

Peaceful, quiet but not dead.

Close to the airport

We have stayed in different hotels here 4 times and we love the proximity to the airport. €8 in a cab and your at your hotel in under 10 minutes. There are a few shops around and its a nice stroll to Los Pocolos. If your feeling fitter its about 35 mins walk to Puerto Del Carmen. No traffic allowed on the promenade so its great for walkers and pushchairs etc.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Easy access to Airport and busier resorts
