Playa Blanca, the best resort on the whole of Lanzarote.

Playa Blanca is the best spot on Lanzarote in my opinion. The seafront and harbour is a great location, some fantastic restaurants. including what we consider to be the best Indian restaurant in the world ' Spices' .. Seriously, this place is incredible. If you like super hot British curries, then this probably isn't the place, instead, the curries are more about flavour than heat...spicy but wonderfully flavourful. The chef used to work at the 5* Marriot in Bombay and it shows. Also great to have a couple of shandies in the Kings Head, while the football is on, looking out to sea. Love the place! Costa Teguise is a modern resort, and has no soul in my opinion. Peurto Del Carmen is for younger people who like a good drink and the nightlife.... Playa is more chilled!

The best thing about my stay was ...

The waterfront, restaurants and shops.

Fantastic Resort - this was our 10th trip

Beautiful resort, lots of good restaurants. Its very clean and tidy and well maintained. Good restaurants to try are Tipico Canario next to the Jumbo Chinese. Also Jumbo Chinese. They are both on the promenade at the far end ie the opposite end from the ferry port. All restaurants we've visited have been good but the above 2 are our favourties.

Playa Blanca

Excellent beach of golden sand with just enough to do. Spent most evenings in Rubicon Marina browsing the shops and eating in excellent Italian Pizzeria followed by few drinks in the Jungle Bar or Mollys - both have live music nightly. Also ate in the Princessa Yaiza hotel - ( dinner twice in the Italian & Ice creams in the gelaterie). - Expensive but excellent - lovely for a change. Note the resort is nothing like Puerto del Carmen - everything finishes much earlier here.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Everything - Fab holiday
