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 good food, pizza, fish 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 and is situated above the Santander near the dive centre.
Our other favourite is the Tex Mex a bit further along which does amazing ribs and fajitas and a T-bone steak so large we think you’ll never finish it.
If you have any hints, tips or suggestions you’d like to share then please contact us with the details and if we like them, we might well post them; thank you.
