“Wonderful stay!!”

I found Villa Citrus on various websites and after reading the reviews decided to book it for myself, my husband, mother and in-laws. Maureen & Richard (villa owners) made the booking process very easy and answered all our questions very promptly.

I stayed at the villa for 2 weeks at the end of August into September and I wasn't disappointed. The villa was extremely comfortable and had all the amenities required. We arrived late and there was fresh water, milk, tea and coffee left for our arrival which was appreciated,

The villa was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of wardrobe space. The outside space was ideal and the pool was fabulous, especially as the weather was very hot (no pool heating required at this time of year).

The villa had a supermarket only a 2 minute walk away which is very well stocked and would have everything you would need, but there are also plenty of supermarkets in the resort area.

We hired a car for the duration of the holiday but I wouldn't necessarily say that you would need to have a car if staying at the villa, as it is only a 5 min walk to the seafront promenade and then a 20 min stroll to the marina and a further 15 walk to the resort centre.

I love the marina, there are some lovely restaurants and bars, Vino Blanco was great for tapas and Il Commendatore was lovely Italian plus Lani's had the best Strawberry Daquari's. If you like Chinese, then please try the Asia Playa Blanca located in the Centre along the promenade, they have Chinese, Japanese and Thai food and it was absolutely fantastic (I ate here 4 times during the holiday).

The villa gets the sun all day, so you can lie about the loungers or in the pool no problem.

Maureen and Richard kindly allowed our party to check out slightly later than normal as we had a late flight. Kate popped in off and on just to make sure everything was ok and Mike made sure the pool was tip top, very lovely and helpful people.

I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone looking for a stress free, relaxing holiday, I had no problems at all, the only negative aspect would be the lack of air conditioning (especially in the summer) but I knew this when I booked it, so I can't really complain about it and it would be good to have wi-fi facility available as well.

I would definitely consider returning to the villa in the future and can see why so many other people return.

I love Playa Blanca, its a fantastic place and I'm already planning my next trip!!

PS If you are an animal lover like myself, there are a number of little cats in the area that love a good meal :-)

“Lovely relaxing villa”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Villa Citrus is definitely the nicest villa I've stayed in. Situated on an extremely quiet street with a supermarket literally around the corner, the marina a 20 min walk away and Playa Blanca an easy bus/taxi journey away it was an ideal place for us to stay without worrying about needing a car.
It was the villa itself however which really made the difference. It is beautifully stocked and really did feel like a home away from home. With the welcome pack (water, milk, tea & coffee) and the kitchen brimming with everything you could need, all we had to buy were the supplies we needed for cooking. There was even hand soaps and washing-up liquid. These are the things which make all the difference when arriving late at night, tired and disorientated.
The only downside is the lack of wifi, but Maureen tells me there is some talk about a wifi hub being installed on the complex so the lack of wifi is nothing to do with the owner, and it may be available in future.
If I return to Lanzarote I would certainly consider staying at villa Citrus again, and I have definitely recommended it to friends and family as a lovely quiet getaway.

We had a lovely week at this excellent and well equipped villa. Excellent location -easy access for Papagayo beach, Rubicon Marina and Playa Blanca. Beautiful coastal pathway - we walked 25km from east to west of the bay and back. Beautiful beaches and lunch stops including at Playa Flamingo. Fabulous restaurants in the marina. Our children have flown the nest and late September is an ideal time for us to visit.

We stayed here for 12 very relaxing days. The villa had everything (and more) that you'd ever need for a great holiday. The pool was very clean and a welcome respite from the sun!
The booking process was very easy and Maureen and Richard responded very promptly to any emails or enquiries. (Thankyou for allowing us to check out late - it was much appreciated).
We spent lazy days by the pool and ate in various restaurants around the marina - which is an easy stroll away. We returned home feeling very relaxed and refreshed. Thanks also to Linda and mike (managers) you were helpful and on hand when we wanted to ask something but at the same time left us to enjoy our holiday. Would love to return again.

“Relaxing Holiday in Beautiful Villa”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed in Villas Citrus in mid-April 2013 and we weren’t disappointed. The villa looks every bit as good as the official photos, and the reviews are accurate – clean, modern villa in a quiet area away from the main drag, shop and bus stop nearby, 15-20 minutes’ walk along coastal path to Marina Rubicon and great restaurants.

We are five friends in our late 40s/early 50s who like to go on a sun holiday together each year. This was the first time we booked a private villa so we were a bit apprehensive about payment, and how problems would be dealt with, etc. There was no need to worry – the booking process was easy (we paid the deposit, breakages bond, and balance by PayPal through HolidayLettings), Maureen (the owner) responded to our email queries promptly, Linda and Mike (the caretakers) live close by and visited on the first day and then only if we needed them, and finally, our deposit was returned extremely fast (on the day after our return from holidays).

All in all, a fantastic holiday and we’re planning to return to Villa Citrus next year.

We first visited Villa Citrus in 2009 and this year was our 4th visit in 5 years to this wonderful location and superb villa. This year my partner and I went with a couple of family members and their 2 year old daughter and they all loved it as much as we do.

There is nothing to fault with this place at all, the pool is a perfect size for chilling out and cooling down in (even when all 5 of us were in it), the comfort in the villa itself is lovely and it had everthing we could have wanted to make our holiday perfect. (Even took adavntage of the washing machine so all our washing was done and dried in the lovely sunshine before we went home!!).

I would gladly recommend this villa letting to anybody and am already planning our visit for 2014.
