not really anything much to do...the marina area is nice but it is about an hours walk each way. There is a nice beach area about 30 minutes walk away but last time we visited there it had loungers and parasols but it is bare now...not sure why.

If you want to get out and about you need to hire a car.Local Buses are ok but you can spend a lot of time hanging about at the bus station and then fighting the queues.

"We think the best resort on the island"

Overall Resort Rating:

Excellent

Open quote

The main beaches are few and far between but the fabulous Papagayo headland is nearby with many fabulous beaches. A very spread out resort; check on Google earth or similar before you book to make sure your hotel is in an area that's right for you. There is a well lit and clean promenade for about 5 miles all along the front where you can walk the length of the resort. Rubicon Marina area is nice.

"Had Many Happy Returns to Play Blanca "

Overall Resort Rating:

Good

Open quote

Love Playa Blanca and is our favourite resort in Lanzarote. Been here and all over Lanzarote many times over the last twenty years. Never fails us but the landscape at times beyond the resorts is not everyones cup of tea as it is a geological volcanic wonder. But it is a fascinating island and worth exploring as there a lot of hidden gems to see and experience. The weather is not perfect all of the time but very stable in our experience at any time of year, maybe we have just been lucky! There are some nice shops, good restaurants and pleasant walks along the promenade from the Rubicon marina (and beyond to Papagayo) in the east all the way to the Lighthouse at the western tip.

"Caters for all kinds of groups"

Good

Lanzarote's appeal does not (for me) go very far inland. The 'moonscape' appearance is ugly and uninviting. The hotels and facilities near the beach are the main areas of interest for me.

"playa blanca"

Overall Resort Rating:

Excellent

Playa blanca is a lovely resort. A family resort. I would recommend the resort to a friend. The resort said lots of friendly restaurant and bars. If you want football and rugby and a friendly pint go to bar arena near to natura palace hotel. Restaurant mira el dor in Marian Rubicon was the best food in the resort. Food and service is out of this world.

"A busy, mediocre resort"

Overall Resort Rating:

Average

Open quote

Much of a muchness like many other Canarian resorts with the usual cafes restaurants and tacky gift shops. Didn't go for the resort as we were all inclusive. For those who needed to eat out there appeared to be plenty of choices available. We always go this time of the year for some sunshine and some walking after the Christmas excesses and to get away from the winter weather. Have stayed in other parts of Lanzarote many times and will continue to go to those other areas.

Playa Blanca it a nice reasonably sized resort. As we were staying in an all inclusive hotel we didn't eat out but there were plenty of restaurants to choose from if needed. Enough shops to allow you to buy whatever you require. The whole area is well kept and it seemed like a nice family friendly resort.

Lovely long walkways with terrific views out to sea. The Marina is worth a visit as it is really pretty with restaurants surrounding it. There is a beach called Playa Dorado which is a lovely, safe beach where you can sunbathe or swim.
