“Good option away from the all-inclusive bustle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2007

Casas del Sol is a complex of many villas, directly opposite the old harbour of Playa Blanca. The location is as central as it gets, you can easily reach all the prominade with lots of shops and restaurants in 2 minutes and the town beaches in 5 minutes. A stoll along the coast to the Marina Rubicon takes about half an hour.

Note that all the villas are privatly owned (and rented while the owners are away) - thus the quality of the apartments differs substantially because the whole interior depends on the taste and preferences of the individual owners.

We had a 2-bedroom villa booked for one week, but had to move to another villa in between because the owners of our first accomodation arrived during our vacation. While this was a minor nuisance, it gave us a chance to see two villas so I can give a bit more details here :-) All villas have a nice and quite large patio with table and sunbeds, which is very nice to relax between your activities. There are lots of flowers, and the design of the complex gives you some privacy as well. Some villas also have barbeques. The first villa were we stayed was furnished *very* rustic and not very nicely, with a tiny and quite grubby old shower. The mattraces there were extremely soft, and the "double bed" was actually two beds side-byside with a large gap in between, so the nights were not exactly cosy. The second villa was furnished much more lovingly with a nice style and sunny colors, and it had a good (and real) king-size double bed. The sanitation was also much more modern, it even offered two bathrooms and a washing machine. Both villas had all essential appliances such as fridge, stove, toaster and water heater etc.

I had the impression that not all villas were booked, thus I'd recommend that you as for a different villa if you are not satisfied with the one that's assigned to you. Some villas are also adjecent to a busier road, so you might want to avoid these (ours were laid back and totally quiet).

The Casas del Sol complex itself as well as the pool is very nice and well kept, with a mixed audience of different ages, mainly from Germany or the UK. It definitly is a good option if you are looking for a more quiet and private place to stay in Playa Blanca and do not fancy those huge club hotels. There is also a parking lot only for guests of Casas del Sol in case you have a rental car (which I can highly recommend since there are a lot of interesting things to see in Lanzarote).

One hint: bring soap and dish-washing liquid with you - as this is not hotel in the conventional sense, there is not soap provided, and while the villas are cleaned every other day the dishes are not washed during your stay.

  • Liked — quiet and private, good location, nice terrace
  • Disliked — uncomfortable beds in the first of the two villas where we stayed; no soap on arrival

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2007

We have just returned from a lovely week in a bungalow villa in the Cases Del Sol complex in Playa Blanca.

The complex could not be more central - it is just two minutes stroll from the port and pedestranised promenade with its many excellent bars and restuarants (just accross the main road from the port).

The complex itself was quiet with mainly privately owned villa bungalows.

We were in a two bed (but note the second bedroom is very small with bunk beds - fow small kids only really) however it was very nicley furnished with a new kychen and bathroom.

The terrace area is very pleasant - quiet large, wall in to shelter you from the frequent winds in Lazarote and had a lockable gate - very child friendly.

Unfortunately the swimming pool was empty and out of use for painting when we weret here but the area was very nice with all the grounds kept very clean and smart with lots of well established plants and trees/
.There is a good book exchange in reception and the staff were all very helpfull.

I would not hestitate to recommend Las Casas del Sol looking for a well equiped villa in a well kept central position in (my opinion) the best resort in Lanzarote.
