We had a pleasant stay at the property. It had lovely outdoor areas, nice kitchen and bathroom. It could do with having more towels as I prefer clean towels every other day. Very close to the Marina with a nice promenade.
We have just arrived home after a wonderful stay in Casa Aguilera. The property was spotlessly clean well equipped the showers were powerful and the water always hot. The bedrooms were very spacious lots of storage space and the beds very comfortable. The tv and dvd selection was excellent. The complex was very peaceful I think there was only 3/4 other properties occupied and we had the pool to ourselves. The house is approx 10 minute walk to the marina rubican area where you will find restaurants and a mini supermarket on a lovely coastal walkway which goes all the way to the ferry port the walk to the main playa blanca strip is approx 25 minutes where there are many more restaurants and shops etc and the beach playa dorada is here also. This beach was lovely and calm water so clear you can see the bed below and some fish! lovely safe beach for children to swim. If you like cycling there are plenty of bike hire shops we chose magma bikes just beside the rubican aparthotel in the marina area for €11 per day we cycled for two days which was great. In the mornings you can head off on the coastal walkway for a walk or jog which we did every morning and the views of the sea and other islands were stunning. The papagayo beach is about 25 mins walk on the opposite direction of the marina over rough terrain (this walk not suitable for young kids) but the reward is the totally unspoilt papagayo beach. I have been to lanzarote about four times and hand on heart would come back to Playa Blanca its the nicest of all the resorts on the island. The area is very clean and tidy very pretty and peaceful. You dont have people annoying you on the beach to buy things or people on the streets trying to get you into restaurants.There are some beautiful hotels in the area which one can meander around or perhaps a spa treatment?. If you have young kids the Princessa Yaiza Hotel just opposite the beach run a kids club (kiko club) for 2 adults and 2 kids its €24 for the day from 10am-5.30 the children can use all the facilities and they do an activity with them for 2 hours the adults must stay on site while they do this but parents can relax on the sun loungers or go for a swim in the pool. There is also tennis /soccer/basketball courts on site which can be used separately or with the childs club day extra charge may apply. If you like water parks visit the Aqua Lava water park if you are not driving its a long walk so I would advise get the bus or a taxi for about €3.50. The water park has slides for the teens adults/ a beach and a young kiddies water park too. Fee is €20 per adult €14 for a child. There are shower facilities baby changing units and a cafe on the park. This price is for the whole day from 10am until 5pm. I would like to thank Joanne for her assistance with booking this accommodation and for the beach toys and beach towels she left for us it was a lovely touch. The next time we visit lanzarote I will only come back to Playa Blanca and stay at this property it was really lovely. Regards Fiona
Suited our party of six down to the ground. First class apartment in a lovely complex. Close to Rubicon Marina with lots of restaurants, bars and a market twice a week. Supermarkets close by. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Lanzarote.
We had a lovely stay in Casa Aquilera this Easter with our kids (12 and 9). The house is modern, nicely furnished and feels almost new. The kitchen is well equipped, with dishwasher and washing machine. Bathrooms are modern and both bath and beach towels were provided, which keeps your luggage down! The complex is very quiet and there was only 1 other family using the pool while we were there. There is a terrace on either side of the house so you can always be in the sun. It's very close to the coastal walkway and we enjoyed walking down to the marina and even on to the centre of Playa Blanca. Joanne, the owner, was very helpful and responded to any questions we had very promptly. Would definitely recommend the accommodation.
We have done many of the major sights in lanzarote on a previous trip but in Playa Blanca itself we can recommend:
- a Segway tour (per booking essential).
- a walk up and round the Montana roja volcano. Can get the bus or drive to the bottom of the volcano.
- days surfing with Kabouti surf school. The children did this and my 9 year old daughter in particular loved it.
- hiring bikes from Papagayo bikes. We cycled all the way along the coastal path to the lighthouse one morning. In the afternoon we cycled to the Papagayo beaches and had a drink and ice cream at the cafe there.
