Accommodation on Lanzarote?

If 4-star luxury is what you are after, then the Vik San Antonio Hotel is a 5 minute walk down the road from us.
On the other end of the scale there are plenty of self-catering apartments with the advantages of being on a complex with facilities such as a swimming pool, including the Apartementos Mirabel
2 star Apartementos La Penita. Lanzarote.
3 star Apartementos Barcarola Club.

Something to watch for when booking is your accommodation is the breakfast times. We ask divers to get to the dive centre for 08:30 so that we can gear up and leave by 09:00 at the latest. This is so that we can get a parking space which minimizes the walk to the water when fully kitted up; this makes a huge difference in the summer sun! Obviously, if you are self-catering then this is not an issue but divers have commented that even when breakfast opens at 08:00 they are not always ready to serve you until nearer 08:15.

Other useful information

Book early to avoid disappointment – yes this applies to your diving but also your driving. The island only has so many rental vehicles and when they are gone; they’re gone! You could rent a motorbike or quad bike as an alternative.

When driving or riding make sure you have your passport and driving license with you in case you are stopped; they will want to see them. Belt up – or face an on the stop fine of €80 per person. It’s the individual and not the driver that is liable but they will make the driver go to a cashpoint (ATM) so the fine can be paid.

The Italian La Tratorria does very great pizza and fish dishes and the ice-cream shop across the road from it is also fab! According to Andrea, who regularly dives with us, lives on the island and is German, they do a mean German style ice-cream with all the toppings! We also like the Peking Duck, which does a great Chinese eat all you like buffet suitable for any budget. Our other favourite is the Himalaya Indian and Nepalise restaurant which is a little bit further along and never fails to provide excellent service and cuisine.
