We can but repeat the many positive comments of previous reviewers – we booked easily on-line and by email through WimPen – they held a booking whilst we sorted our flights and then confirmed the accommodation - easy.
The 2-bed bungalow we had was roomy, very well equipped, in an excellent decorative order and (despite comments from other reviewers) we found the beds comfortable and not too hard at all. There were plenty of sunbeds, the bar wasn’t too expensive, and the BBQ night had good food for a reasonable price. The only criticism would be the weak nightly entertainment – cheap but cheerful – but there is better to be found a short distance away in some of the town’s bars.
In our opinion, the best restaurant was Restaurante Aromas Yaiza , only a few hundred metres from Las Brisas – smaller portions, but excellent quality food and attentive staff. However, we enjoyed El Horno de la Aguela (Abuela) (= "Granny's Oven") best - near the taxi rank in the town - not so expensive, the food portions were bigger, and the roast goat was excellent, whilst the portion of suckling pig was enormous. However (as with all restaurants we ate at, the vegetables were few and not of great quality). Booking is essential at both.
For lunch we regularly had Tapas. The Queens Inn was OK, but the food was a bit anglicised. The best place we found was Bodegon Las Tapas – on the promenade near the port – great peppers padron, small squid and prawns.
Twice we drove to El Golfo, which was as good as we expected from the reviews. Both times we ate at Rest-Mar Azul – one of the restaurants with seating on the sea side of the road, and kitchens/bar on the other side of the road. There was no written menu (“we only serve fish”) and you need to trust the waiters to recommend both food and wine – we had octopus (excellent), small squid, limpets, king prawns and Dorado – and Stratus white wine (which was the best Lanzarotean wine we could find). Great for a long, lazy lunch right by the sea…..
Las Brisas is very British, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. However, to get the Lanzarote atmosphere, we strongly recommend taking time to walk all around the town and visit places like El Golfo, Timanfaya, and the Green Caves.
