Expert review of Casa del Embajador

Unique historic oasis in one of Lanzarote's best locations, and a real home from home.

A terrace of 100-year-old fishermen’s cottages converted into an ambassador’s house is now a unique, peaceful hotel. I love its old world charm and the feeling of being in a private residence. Walk down the hotel steps to the beach and then fall asleep to the sound of the sea.

Location: 

On a hill on the seafront with panoramic ocean views across to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura, yet right in the centre of the busy resort of Playa Blanca, between two beaches and close to many bars, shops and restaurants.

Bedrooms: 

Just 12 rooms and one suite. All have a terrace and sunloungers overlooking the pleasant narrow strip of garden next to the sea. Though on the simple side, they are modern and clean, are decorated in muted colours and with tasteful antique furniture.

Public areas: 

A pleasant terrace dotted with plants, and a comfortable lounge with TV and cane sofas looking out to sea, are two lovely places to relax.

Eating and drinking: 

There is no restaurant. A good breakfast with a variety of items is served in the conservatory style breakfast room in summer and in the kitchen in winter. The original kitchen is a cosy spot and contains a well-stocked honesty bar.

Leisure facilities: 

No facilities as such, but with the beach a stone’s throw away, a large number of leisure options are on your doorstep.

Service: 

Rather reserved and formal and certainly discreet.

Who stays there: 

Mostly Italians, British, Germans and Spanish people stay here. Some families, although the steep steps and lack of facilities for children means it is not really suitable for youngsters.

Price advice: 

Free private parking is a real plus for such a central location.

Pros: 
Intimate, historic building
Quiet and relaxing
Direct access to beach
Cons: 
No restaurant or swimming pool
No air conditioning
