What seems like forever ago now, Bob & I ventured off for a 2 week break to Lanzarote and stayed in the lovely resort of Playa Blanca. Being massive foodies we were really impressed with the huge choice of restaurants and eateries for us to enjoy and definitely indulged a lot during the 14 day break. I want to share one of the restaurants we visited which was part of our half board deal with Thomas Cook: Il Commendatore Italian restaurant.
It was positioned perfectly on the marina and is a bustling restaurant with incredible food and service. Here are a few of the snaps I took during my visit there, I wish I’d taken more but we got way too caught up in the food and vibe. (I know, bad Blogger eh?)
Just one of the excellent dishes we ate.
I’m sorry I didn’t take more but we absolutely loved the vibe of the restaurant and just enjoyed being relaxed for the first time in ages. Playa Blanca is a beautiful place and we are hoping to go back next year for a short break again. I will be sharing some more foodie and travel posts soon so keep your eyes peeled.
So back in June (which seems like forever ago), Bob & I jetted off for two sunny weeks in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote. Having never visited the island before and Bob’s last visit was as a small child, we were open to seeing what it could offer.
One Word summed it up really: Beautiful!
We stayed at the amazing Hotel Volcan Lanzarote which actually has part of the hotel shaped like a volcano complete with lights running down it to look like lava. If hotels aren’t up your street and you prefer something with a little more flexibility then perhaps you could try a Lanzarote villa In the Canary Islands?
We had the most amazing two weeks and ventured from the top of the island to the bottom doing some of the typical touristy things. I thought I would share a few of my favourite snaps before reviewing some of the tourist spots and restaurants in the next coming weeks. I hope you enjoy them and if you are thinking of going then leave me a comment and I will try to answer any questions you have.
The marina just outside our hotel which was beautiful and full of fish.
A gorgeous castle/fort which was used to keep an eye on pirates just outside our hotel again.
The prettiest palm trees against white was a firm feature of the island and I had to take a photo.
The Jardin De Cactus which was one of the tourist spots we went to and loved.
The love locks along the seafront of Playa Blanca.
Keep your eyes peeled for my posts talking all about the hotel, the food and the sights coming up in the next few weeks.
