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.

I liked Plya Blanca too. We stayed at the Princesa Yaiza which was quite nice

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.

so the hotel entertainment and kids club was really good - should read.

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!
