About the Owner

We lived in Playa Blanca in 2002/3 and for us, it is the best part of the island with its beautiful unspoilt beaches, wonderful choice of restaurants and plenty for everyone to do. We chose to buy at Rio Playa Blanca because we have children and grandchildren and found this particular resort caters for all ages, young and older alike. We know from experience that if families with children can keep them happy and safe the parents can relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa is located in a beautiful and relaxed complex. It has 2 beautiful pools, children's play area, restaurants and bars. An all inclusive option for food and drink throughout the day can be obtained from reception and is very good value particularly if you have children. The whole experience in staying in this villa was unforgetable. The villa is exceptional in every way, the weather ideal, the people friendly and the whole environment clean, fresh and relaxing. I have visited twice now and have now booked to go back. I didn't want to leave. Lynda Rhodes

Excellent bungalow in Playa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

What can we say? My wife and I have been to Andy and Cher's bungalow in Playa Blanca four times now, in both and Summer and Winter, and I know that we will keep coming back! For us the whole experience has everything. Well appointed clean and comfortable accommodation in a quite vicinity with masses of facilities to suit both couples and families (almost everything you would want for children of all ages is provided),

There is a massive pool complex with two large pools paddling pool and ample room for sun bathing with no fighting for sunbeds!) For those that want it "all inclusive" can be arranged with the site owner at a very reasonable cost. We've eaten in the Dinning Room several times and can definitely recommend it. Away from the site the main resort of Playa Blanca is only a ten minute bus ride away (a half hourly very reliable service runs from just outside the site). or a very pleasant half an hour walk along the sea front also gets you there. There are numerous excellent restaurants in Playa Blanca. We've been to many of them and have never been disapointed. For the daytime there is a sheltered, never too crowded beach just ten minutes walk away. My wife and I spend a lot of our time on the beach...its lovely! Overall whether its a quiet relaxing holiday you are looking for, for an older couple like us, or you are looking for a bit more activity with children then I can thoroughly recommend Andy and Cher's for a guaranteed wonderful holiday.

Such a relaxing week spent at this wonderful bungalow, which is spacious and very well equipped with washing machine and microwave etc. The home is well furnished and homely and has a lovely outdoor dining area overlooking the well tended gardens. The location of the bungalow is great for a stroll to local restaurants or just a few minutes drive into Playa Blanca itself where we were spoilt for choice with restaurants and excellent shops. As the bungalow is on a complex that provides an 'all inclusive' arrangement in the huge restaurant looking over the large swimming pool and entertainment area, it makes for a very relaxing break for those with children with all the facilities on offer. We are so pleased we found this lovely bungalow and hope to make another booking very soon.

Nice well equipped and villa in pleasant location

  • 3 of 5

very nice villa with everything needed for self catering although quite a walk into playa blanca resort (for my 2 kids anyway),its also quite a walk to empty your rubbish (20 minute round trip). Flamingo beach is lovely and around a 10 minute walk with main resort being around another 20 minutes, internet is available at the hotel wifi area or you can pay for internet (when working) in the villa which we did for 3 days at 18 euro ,the Rio hotel itself is a little tired looking with little going on in terms of entertainment but ok for a game of pool. We did the 3 day (minimum) all inclusive option which cost 24 euros a day for adults and 12 for children and found the breakfast at the Rio was good but for iunch and evening meals we used the sister hotel HL PARADISE which was a 10 or so minute walk up the road , there is much more choice in food and is a much smarter looking hotel (both 4star ?), a slight problem we had at the paradise was we were under the impression we could use the water park there as part of the all inclusive but not the case, we were asked to pay 15 euros for adults and 10 for children which we declined (it was closing in 2 hours) so we had to leave (embarrassing), when we questioned this at both receptions we were told the all inclusive only included food and drink? overall we enjoyed the 2 weeks and the villa and surroundings are lovely but location wasnt ideal for us personally

Activity and Interests


5 Minute walk to Playa Flamingo. Buses, taxis will take you to the larger beaches of Playa Dorada and Papagyo.

There are 2 water parks in Playa Blanca. One is owned by a sister complex and complementary buses run from reception. Guests opting to go all inclusive go free and can use their all inclusive at the park. The other water park is opposite the complex entrance.


Car hire is available from the airport but we would recommend that you pre book this before you travel. There is a taxi service outside the airport terminal. A shuttle bus service is available around Playa Blanca and surrounding areas.


The villa is a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach and 10 minutes from the main town/port. To take advantage of the wonderful attractions on Lanzarote we would advise you to take either coach trips or hire a car.

Further Details:

The supermarket on site is expensive so we would advise you to walk the few minutes up the road to either the Spar or Hypo Dino Supermarkets. There are plenty of restaurants in Playa Blanca that can cater for all tastes. The Irish Bars are always good fun with live entertainment but again can be expensive. There are plenty of banks/cash machines in Playa Blanca. Trips that are recommended are: Fire Mountain, Boat trips around the island, Caves, Tropical bird park, information available from reception.
