I am going to book a holiday to lanzarote in october half term and dont know where to book. Matagorda or playa blanca? or any other ideas for canary islands please. There will be me dh, dd 5, ds 16 and ds 2.
I loved Playa Blanca.The Playa Flamingo Apartments are superb, right on the beach.Thompson run and great entertainment for the children if that's what you want.Lovely walk along the prom to the Harbour and Playa Blanca town centre.
We went to Matagorda about 4 years ago now, stayed in the Sol Lanzarote. The hotel was ok, but I don't think you will find much to do in Matagorda.
My Ds's at the time were about 5 & 7 so the hotel entertainment and kids club (they did little evening parties with discos away from the parents). I would think your Ds1 might find it a bit boring. The walk into Puerto Del Carmen takes about 30 mins along the promenade which is a lot livelier.
We stayed at Holiday Village Sun Tropical (First Choice) in Playa Blanca back in February, and loved both the resort and the town. There was so much to do at the holiday village that we hardly left it all week!
we go every year to playa blanca ,timanfaya palace is great!!!!!!!,we want a change this year though anyone tried tenerife with kids at oct half term ,any quiet areas with 4/5 star child friendly hotel??
