My wife and I have just had a fantastic one week stay at the apartment which is off the main drag in the centre of Playa Blanca but set back in a peaceful location. The apartment is beautifully presented, immaculately clean and has all mod cons as well as all the extras you need for a home away from home. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. The beds are very comfortable (especially the main bedroom double) but the piece de resistance is the terrace that has sunbeds, a table for outdoor eating and, of course, a hot tub. There is a large flat screen TV with UK terrestrial channels as well as a huge selection of downloaded movies in case you want to spend a night in. There is a beach just round the corner from the apartment but we spent our time at Dorada Beach which is a 7-10 minutes stroll away and has a bit more going on with jet skis, banana boat, sun beds etc. The choice is yours! Any queries we had regarding the booking were handled promptly and efficiently by Brian and everything went like clockwork. We are so glad we found this apartment!!
As a solo traveller I am always nervous when booking new unknown accommodation. The moment I arrived at The Regency I knew all those feelings of trepidation were unfounded. Lesley and Brian were there to meet me as promised (even tho I was delayed). Brian was downstairs waiting to pay the transfer charge from the airport. They explained how to operate the jacuzzi (very important) and any other of the numerous facilities available at the apartment. Before leaving me to settle in (with a perfectly chilled bottle of vino kindly provided) Brian and Lesley made it clear that I was to contact them with any concerns I had. My stay has been perfect, the apartment is spotless, good quality glassware and tableware, the bed linen and towels are first class, the bathroom stocked with a good range of toiletries. The apartment is minutes walk from the many and varied restaurants along the front, the area is well lit at night. The only problem I had was leaving. Brian and Lesley well deserve a 5* rating they go the extra mile to ensure their guests have a relaxed worry free holiday. From the first enquiry email to the day of my departure Brian and Lesley made everything so easy with prompt responses to any queries and checking everything was ok during my stay they really make a difference I will definitely return.
Having read the previous reviews I can only repeat them. Fantastic apartment close to shops, restaurants, supermarkets and the beach. It's a perfect starting point if you want to explore the island or visit attractions as the pick up points are fairly near to the apartment and also there are a couple of options to browse for cheaper rental cars. There's also a ferry service to Fuerteventura every hour if Lanzarote proved to be too small. As for the beach I would recommend Playa Dorada which is only 10-15 minutes walk away but bigger and better (with virtually no pebbles and rocks) than the one situated nearby the apartment.
Brian greeted us with the warmest welcome possible and he paid for our airport transfer too. They were very friendly and helpful. They provided literally everything in the aparment (I could have packed only toothbrush and swimming suit), it certainly felt home away home. When we were indoors air-con, ceiling fan, jacuzzi, big screen telly with basic english channels in HD and huge selection of movies helped us to relax and enjoy our holiday.
We only spent 10 nights here but we left with a heavy heart.
Thank you for everything Brian and Lesley!
Just returned from a very enjoyable 11 night stay. Warm welcome after excellent airport transfer service paid for by Brian on arrival. Perfect location in a quiet area but only a few minutes from restaurants and shops. Very large sunny balcony perfect for relaxing and we used for breakfast/lunch each day, under the large parasol, then ate out each evening.
Apart from the excellent facilities, all the extras included make such a difference: beach towels, fruit, wine, olive oil, vinegar, BBC TV, clothes pegs etc, etc and a teapot! We were able to travel hand luggage only.
Our 9th time self catering in the Playa Blanca area and wish we had found this apartment before now!
