We decided to go back to La Penita in Lanzarote in mid August for my Wife's birthday having previously vistited this hotel in 2003, when we found it to be great and it is still just as good! . We asked for a pool view and we were given one on the middle floor of the three storey block overlooking the pool. This hotel is very clean and well maintained and good value for money and just two minutes away from the main street and bars/restaurants at the upper end of the strip, whilst the central area is only 15-20 mins walk max and the harbour area around 30-40 minutes. The pool is good and you could quite easily get a sunbed, even though some people reserved beds as usual, although the pool is very cold, which is good when you want to cool off but you cant stay in for long unless your moving about.
There are quite a few decent bars and restaurants within a short walk, inclduing the two cocktail bars over the road adjacent to the Casino and a few nice Chinese restaurants including one adjacent to the hotel. I would also recommend the Lani's Mexican restaurant close to the new shopping parade further down the strip past the Centro area; there were quite often queues to get in and they had an offer of 5 euros for chicken fajitas which were very good and the Nacho's were also excellent.
The centro area has loads of Bars, which are ok, and get very busiy, whilost the club was good, but we missed Ceasers taht used to be there but closed down this summer.
The Harbour has some great restaurants and bars, the best was on the cliff edge called Restaurante Mar Casa Benito, with great views over the harbour, greatr food and cheap drinks, including 2 euros for beer and reasonably priced wine, so very good for a special occassion.
Overall, we will be going back soon and woudl not stay anywhere other than La Penita!
