Without hesitation we wish to associate ourselves with the many 5 star reviews of “The Regency”apartment. We arrived with high expectations and we were certainly not disappointed.It is spacious, immaculately maintained and more than comprehensively equipped.It is also superbly located in a quiet yet convenient part of central Playa Blanca.It also has a very homely ambience not normally associated with holiday lettings.
Owners Brian and Lesley are exceptional in their attention to detail and strive to ensure that their guests have a wonderful holiday.They were more than helpful to us for which we are grateful.
This is the first time we have ever written a review despite the fact that over many years we have stayed in hotels and apartments throughout the world.We would feel remiss however if we did not acclaim “The Regency” as it is somewhere special as many others before us have maintained.
Thank you Brian and Lesley for making us welcome in your lovely apartment.
Eifion and Judith
We've recently returned from a very enjoyable 11 night stay in the Regency Apartment and were happy to find that everything said in the numerous 5 star reviews was true. The apartment was as described on the website and, as other reviewers have said, feels like a real “home from home”.
The apartment was clean, spacious and exceptionally well equipped and the large sun terrace gets the sun for much of the day. It's in a quiet location, though very central, being only a 2 minute walk to the nearest beach and with lots of good restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets within a 5 minute walk. It's also handy for the bus station and for the local taxi rank (if you don't fancy walking to/from the beautiful marina). First Minute Transfers were recommended for the airport transfers and they were excellent.
We had originally booked into the nearby H10 Lanzarote Princess Hotel and are so glad we cancelled that and booked the Regency Apartment instead. We would recommend it without hesitation.
From start to finish the owners, Brian and Lesley, were a pleasure to deal with. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and there were a number of instances where they definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. So thank you, Brian and Lesley, we feel that you genuinely cared about our holiday as much as we did. Dave and Isabelle.
We have just returned from our 4th stay at the Regency in Playa Blanca, sadly only for 1 week this time though. As usual the apartment was cleaned and ready for us and the owners Brian and Lesley where there to greet us with a warm and friendly welcome. Each time we go here the apartment seems to have something else extra to surprise us. This time it was some new bedroom furniture, new sun loungers on the terrace and an excellent water chiller in the kitchen. We do like to cook during our stay and really appreciate the equipment this self catering apartment provides. It would be hard to find better facilities in a rental property I think. We enjoyed sitting in the Hot tub in the evenings with a glass of wine and the water was always lovely and hot. thanks again Brian & lesley for all the effort you put into our holiday enjoyment.
We will let you know on next January's dates as soon as we can. Thanks in advance for holding these dates for a while.
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!
