“a small oasis of tranquility yet near all the amenities for that perfect holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Just spent a two week vacation at marazul Playa a small set of 24 bungalows very near the beach front in matagorda in lanzarote. Its a small haven of bungalows that ars very well maintained indeed. Spacious and yet easy to maintain with lovely back area or front terrace for outdoor eating or relaxing. The garden landscape areas are impeccably kept. The pool is small but very adequate and yet why waste a wonderful beach area that is next door.(Playa matagorda) The bungalows are cleaned daily and change of towels twice weeklt. The complex also has a nice outdoor/terrace type bar area that is open from 10-7pm so its tranquil in the evenings if you want to relax and just chill. Food and drinks are available. the local shopping centre is 100 m away where two good suoermarkets are open til 10pm daily. The ever efficent bus service bus stops to puerto del carmen or to arrecife/costa teguise (No. 3) or even to playa Planca (161) is only 200m away as is mc Donalds (Shhhhh) The staff are very friendly and relaxed too so you never feel rushed. If you are staying til later flight and hve to check out there is a shower/toilet room in the complex which you can use also.
two recommended restaurants near by: Jazz Bistro and Sirroco both in shopping centre,
If you wish to do excursions Last minute tours have a pick up point in matagoida usually Beatriz playa Hotel nearby.
Oh and unlike other higher star apart hotels this complex offers free wifi that is super quality. another plus to staying here.
In summary if you want to feel as if you are "living" in lanzarote in your own place and seeking a tranquil place that is near all the amenities of the island then go no further than marazul playa a hop away from teh airport so your holiday begins sooner than you think.

We have just returned from our first visit to The Mar Azul. It was recommended to us by family. I can't wait to go back, it was so lovely that we extended our holiday there. Liama the manager was very helpful & friendly.
Dave his wife Diane and daughter Katy run the pool bar, they are so welcoming you feel like a regular.
The bungalows are absolutely spotless, the maid never interrupted you she always waited until you went out. The beds are very comfortable which makes a pleasant change.
The pool is quite cold but that was only a minor detail.
Very good value for money, shops, bars, restaurants & good beach within a few minutes walk.
Definitely will be staying at The Mar Azul again

Love this place. Have stayed nearly every time we go to lanzarote. Tried 1 or 2 other places but nothing came close. Friendly, homely,clean, peaceful and 2 mins from beach and bars and restaurants. ( you have to try the Japanese restaurant. OMG ). going again in June (can't wait).

Room Tip: The bungalows to the right of the pool have front and back patios.

We have just returned from our 2nd stay this year at the Mar Azul Playa. It is a just a beautiful small complex. Nice bungalows - we stayed in a one bedroom - nice size with very comfortable beds (which is normally a problem in other places).

Complex is well maintained and lovely pool area with lots of sunbeds. Nice poolside bar serving good snack food etc, Happy hour each day is between 4 - 5. Only 2 min walk to beach and to restaurants and bars. Less than 5 mins walk to bus stop for buses into Puerto Del Carmen.

Laima Manager is just lovely - very friendly and helpful. Hopefully will be able to return later this year.

Nice little quiet hotel. The pool was so cold I didn't enter it once! This may have been as it was heated by the sun which wasn't at its strongest over Dec/Jan when I was there, but there was still always people using the sunbeds around it. The beach was extremely close as well and was a nice one, and it was a nice half hour walk to Puerto del Carmen, seems like a long way but is nice along the beach front and then into the town passing all the restaurants.

The hotel rooms themselves were very nice and cosy, with a nice living room and kitchen and balcony as well. The maid doesn't come everyday but does do a good job when she is there!

The bar in the site is reasonably priced and the people there are very friendly-even offering to bring food to your rooms!

Overall, very nice place to stay and was a very peaceful location.
