Stayed with my daughter at Gites and Villas' three bedroom bungalow on Las Brisas. My husband and I have been going there for over ten years now. The bungalow was spotlessly clean and very well equipped - everything you could wish for, including a dishwasher! Las Brisas is really well kept with lovely gardens and a huge swimming pool with lots of sunbeds available with lovely views of the "mountains". Although there is entertainment on a number of evenings, none of it is intrusive and if you don't want to join in you are not disturbed at all. It's really quiet and you can just sit on your veranda enjoying a drink.
Playa Blancva has lots of restaurants - I think our favourite was Romantica - it was very different and not at all expensive.
Hire a car and see the island - it is stunning - especially Timanfaya National Park. There are lots of different beaches but the ones at Papagayo take some beating.
We shall certainly return - yet again! more
