Casa el Morro
Ranked #1 of 5 Yaiza B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 27, 2010

This is a lovely spot for a relaxing holiday, as long as you hire a car and are fairly self sufficient. It is ideally located for exploring the interior of Lanzarote, Timanfaya National Park and some of the more characterful villages by the sea, including El Golfo. Car hire is absolutely essential: the roads are excellent although not always lit for night driving.

We found the local villages of Uga and Yaiza quiet to the point of completely deserted (you could almost see the tumbleweed), apart from the local Spar and a coffee bar, but Puerto Carmen and Puerto Calero are quite close for the standard Brit bars, pubs and tourist shops, which make you appreciate the tranquility of Casa El Morro even more.

Best things about Casa El Morro: the relaxing and tranquil ambience, the pool area and quirky apartments; the friendly cats and occasional lizards. Wonderful views of the volcanoes and ideally located to visit the vineyards of La Geria and inland towns. Raquel is very kind and helpful. Worst things: don't come here if you want room service, good local restaurants and everything on tap - the apartments are self catering but if you want to eat out, you tend to be stuck with the tourist menus of the Playas which are not on the doorstep.

We are thirty somethings with an 11 month old baby and loved this small, intimate place. It was the perfect location for exploring the island and we loved the huge day beds (on our terrace and by the pool) for reading/snoozing whilst back at base. Raquel went out of her way to make us feel welcome bringing beach toys for our daughter to play with and offering to supply us with a babysitter. It was a little too cold and windy for us to enjoy the terrace in the evening (it was November after all) but some braver than us made use of their private grills and ate al fresco. We would usually be much more active on our trips but since our daughter isn't yet into hiking we were much more 'hotel bound' and couldn't have picked a better place to do that - there was even yoga on offer!

We have just returned from a weeks holidays on the island of lanzarote. We saw the website we decided it was a very good choice to go with our 10 month old daughter for a first holiday together as a small family
We felt very welcomed and loved in this house, every thing here is done with care and attention. The situation is perfect for just relaxing and slowing down from our busy lives in london. The village is very near by so we went walking every day to enjoy the tapas at the nice local restaurant, there is a lovely park as well with trees and plenty of birds. The views from our house Uga was amazing with the best sunsets we have ever seen in our lives and we are a well travelled couple. At night we could really enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace. The owners have dedicated all their lives to this place and the vibes there are of tranquility and love. two nice details are the vegetable patch and the free range chickens . They have children as well so it is a very familly wellcome place, we could use the toys from their little one and that helped a lot as well. I think this is going to be our perfect choice before we can trot again arround the world as we used to do before we became parents...
A good tip is to have a Thai massage in the Yurt,

We were very disappointed with our stay at Casa El Morro. We booked into the largest of the apartments, Raquel. We found the apartment to be full of dustballs in corners and under the beds. The bedline was thin and bobbly, the lighting so dim that it was almost impossible to read in the sitting room in the evenings. We tried to spend as much time as possible outside becasue we found our apartment to be so gloomy and lacking in light. Our apartment was listed as having two bathrooms. It didn't, it had one upstairs, with the 'bathroom' downstairs being a toilet with sink. When we did try to use the upstairs bath to bathe our toddlers in the early evenings, there was never any hot water, so we resorted to boiling the kettle and putting pans on the stove, which we then carried upstairs.

From a security point of view, we felt a little unsafe as there were several instances of strangers wandering into the courtyard and looking into rooms and apartments. They were innocently looking for a reception or manager but there was never anyone available to take enquiries.


Positives: the garden is very pretty and well-tended.

We are very sorry you felt this way staying at casa el morro. We appreciated your review but we have to say the room you have book it´s the bigger of the house and very popular between guests. It´s a two floors big country house with all the necessary for a family up to 5 people. We have regular guests who come every year to this suite as it´s one of most beautiful in casa el morro.
We don´t understand what you mention about the security, this is a very secure place. We are not sure if you knew you were coming to a small rural village where casa el morro is situated.
We are very sorry to say we are dissapointed to receive this review as it´s totally untrue.
Kind Regards,

The hotel is centrally located in a rural setting and is ideal for day trips to all parts of the island or alternatively for passing the time exploring the area by foot. The daytime hours can also be spent enjoying the gardens ,the beautiful swimming pool area or the terraces of the individual apartments. The apartments each have a lounge, dining area and kitchen and are tastefully finished to a high standard . The staff are very friendly and helpful. The owner's son is all to willing to play with any children. All of the above comes at a very reasonable price,on a beautiful unique island in the sun.

We have reecently returned from staying in Casa Raquel, the largest of 7 apartments with a shared pool. The setting is perfect, in the south of the island, within easy reach of the most interesting sights. It's a little windy in the centre of the island, but then easy to get to Playa Blanca, that always seemed sunny. Casa Raquel is wonderful, so large and with great views. Apartments Uga and La Troja seem to have good views too, though possbily not the others.

Have just returned from a pleasant 6 night stay at Casa el Morro in Lanzarote. The accommodation consists of approximately 6 self catering apartments with shared pool. Each of the apartments is decorated in an eclectic, rustic, ‘hippy chic’ style which adds some character to the place. The general cluttered effect might not be to everyone’s style however because if you, like me, suffer from a slight dust allergy then the apartments aren’t the best because all the clutter makes it impossible to deep clean the place and therefore the levels of dust are quite high. Don’t get me wrong - I’m not saying that the apartments are not cleaned properly – ours was cleaned twice whilst we were there. It’s just all the various ornaments, rugs and drapery make it impossible to make the apartments spotless that’s all.
Once nice feature is that each apartment has its own private outside space where you can relax as well as the small shared pool which is surrounded by several day beds which are very comfortable indeed. The pool, although small, was a nice place to relax at the end of the day to watch the sun set with a few drinks that’s for sure.
The apartments are located on the outskirts of a small village called Uga in southern Lanzarote which is a really good location from which to explore the rest of the Island assuming of course you have your own transport (a car is essential). We visited most of the main attractions on the island during our week as all are within a 30 min drive of Uga. We fould the whole island to be very beautiful with many different landscapes to see and explore. We would definitely recommend making the effort to explore both the north and south of the island because they are very different in character.
There are also loads of good restaurants within a 10 min drive of the village; the closest (although not the best) being walk-able from the apartments.
Overall we had a nice stay in Casa el Morro and would recommend it to other travellers as an inexpensive place to stay in beautiful Lanzarote.
