The villa was perfect. it was clean and well equipped with all you could possibly need. It was well positioned within walking distance of the beautiful harbour with lovely restaurants. We hired a car, driving around the island was easy.
We were there for a week our days generally started with a walk down to the beautiful for a dip in the sea and chill for a couple of hours. then a drive out for lunch somewhere and back to the villa and a chill out around the well positioned pool which had the sun right up until the evening. Then a shower and walk down to the harbour for dinner, we sampled a different restaurant each evening, they were all good.
We had a fabulous time and would thoroughly recommend Villa Carina in beautiful Playa Blanca.
Villa Carina was perfect for the relaxing holiday we were looking for. The villa met all our needs and was clean and spacious. This is the first time I have booked a villa for our family and I can honestly say I'm converted. Having your own pool and not having to fight over sun loungers was bliss. The pool was checked twice weekly (Tue and Friday) to ensure it met the required standards which we liked. The local supermarkets in Los Coloradas is only a 10/15 min walk and has a fab butchers. The other is located in the shopping centre next to the Marina. The lovely Rubicon Marina is only a short 10 min walk and has ample bars and restaurants to choose from. We ate early in the evening and had no problem getting a table however if you like to eat about 7pm onwards I would suggest you book a table as it can get very busy during peak season. We loved Afrodite Little Italy restaurant (most expensive that we ate in) and Cafe Berrugo (most inexpensive). Playa Dorada beach is beautiful and definitely worth visiting. From the villa it's about a 30 minute walk along the costal path. If you’re not keen on walking you can get a taxi for approx 3 euros. Be sure to try Chacho Fresh Burger when in the main Playa Blanca town. Overall Villa Carina is ideally located and everything we needed was within easy reach.
In a nice quiet cul-de-sac only a Short 10 - 15 minute walk to Rubicon Marina with its many shops and restaurants. We absolutely loved our stay in this well equipped and well presented villa. The Pool was a lovely temperature and the Air Conditioning was very efficient and welcoming inside the Villa (30 degrees outside).
Margaret (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with throughout all our transactions. We were kept very well informed and made to feel like very welcome guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa and owner to future guests.
We have just returned back yesterday from a 2 week stay at villa carina with 4 adults and 2 children.
What can I say.....
Villa Carina catered for all we wanted and more. Very comfortable and quiet surroundings for a relaxed holiday that we wanted. The pool was amazing and was loved by all.
Marina rubicon is about a ten minute walk and was beautiful both during the day and at night. Lanis restaurant/snack bar is a must visit. They also do fab take away food. Theres ten pin bowling in the shopping centre aswell which we visited. A visit to Rancho texas zoo is so highly recommended, fantastic day out.
First time doing a villa holiday and first time to lanzarote defo picked the best villa as we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
Hope to visit again sometime.

My wife and I stayed in April this year. We arrived early (approx 1-2 hours) but were made welcome by the cleaning staff and allowed to put our cases inside. We then sunbathed on the more than ample patio till the villa was ready. Once inside we were more than impressed with the large airy living/dining area. The kitchen was well supplied and easily met our needs. There is also a utility room of the kitchen. The master bedroom is en suite and very accomadating. As there were only the two of us we did not use the other two bedrooms but they looked great for a family. Outside the pool deck area was supplied with comfy sunbeds and the pool was perfect for cooling down. The shops are a 5-10 minute walk away as is marina Rubicon with loads of eating places. All in all we had a great week and will definitely be back. The villa also comes with sky tv and wi-fi ideal for a quite night in
LOVED Villa Carina...our two kids especially LOVED the pool. Place had a lived in feel and the owners have gone to some trouble to ensure the kitchen was well equipped. Best to have a car as it's 20 minutes walk or more to the nearest restaurant area and you wouldn't want to miss the special beaches and other attractions Lanzarote has to offer...the volcanic landscape is must see.
