“Great location, lovely little villa”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here during the last week of June/beginning of July.

The villa is located just near the harbour, close to a small shopping complex. It's a 5 minute walk to the small beach, about 15-20 minutes to Costa Dorada beach.

There is a spar close by for food and drinks, also some food and water can be bought in the shop in reception. It's close to lots of restaurants too.

Check in and out was easy.

The villa was perfectly adequate for our needs for the week. We tend to eat out every night on holiday and often go out for breakfast, so self catering worked well for us. There is a small kitchen with a full range of pots and pans and utensils for use should you want to cook. What I would say is some of the pots were stained/used and needed replacing.

The bathroom had a large shower and sink with a large mirror. The shower was powerful and always had hot water. An issue we had was trying to keep the water in the shower! It leaked out and flooded the floor each time we used it - the screen needed to be longer or an option to redirect the shower head.

The bedroom was perfect. Air conditioning (you have to put euros in a meter for this) and comfy beds.

The living area was good, a comfy 3 seater settee and chair with TV. Access to UK channels although the signal was sometimes a bit temperamental. The broadband was handy but sometimes didn't work.

Nice little garden area with two sun beds and sun all day.

The towels were only changed once during the week and I would have expected them to be changed at least twice.

We didn't use the pool area much but it always seemed fairly calm and free sun beds, maybe it gets busier during the school holidays.

I would stay here again and it's great value for money.

“A relaxing & comfortable stay 🌴”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Although we are frequent visitors to Playa Blanca, over the last 4 years,we have stayed on Casas del Sol and can highly recommend it. This was our first booking with Lanzarote First and were impressed by the professional,yet personable approach from start to finish.
V5 is in a quiet location on the resort with the pool & reception only a couple of minutes walk away.
The patio area is private & not overlooked with the usual outdoor furniture and BBQ provided.
Within the villa you will find pretty much everything that you may need that a home from home offers.The seafront only a stones throw away the promenade,restaurants & shops are easily accessible.
During our stay we were welcomed by Christine & Paul who couldn't do enough to make our stay a comfortable one.
Will be back soon

“Best position in Playa Blanca”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Have been staying in Casas del Sol bungalows for at least one holiday per year for the last 20 years.......needless to say we love it here. It is in a prime position and all amenities are in a short distance, supermarket, restaurants, ferry, etc. There is a bus stop right outside the complex. The beaches are about 15 minutes walk away and are very clean and safe for children. The bungalow itself is clean and comfortable and very well equipped. It is in a private position and not overlooked. We hire beach towels too so as not to have that extra luggage weight. The complex is also residential so it is really quiet and friendly. The reception staff are extremely helpful and are now like old friends. If you choose to stay here you will not be disappointed.

“Very nice bungalow/villa on the best site in Playa Blanca?”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

Our 4/5 th visit to this ideally placed complex just at the back of the old harbour in Playa. Blanca, and thus a short stroll from the start of the original paseo with shops/restaurants.
Believe that the complex was originally built in the 1980's and that explains the spacious gardens between each of the 2/3 or mainly 4 linked units.Gardens which are beautifully maintained with all manner of flowering shrubs.
This villa would be one of the smaller units, but we found ideal for us as an older couple.
Refurbished to a good standard and at the price ( given above comments) ,good value at one of the best holiday resorts on Lanzarote

“comfortable break in the sunshine”
Reviewed 6 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Just returned from this villa. The villa is just as described in the advert, extremely comfortable and well equipped. We hired pool towels to save on luggage weight , definitely a bonus.The couple who came to clean were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Casas del sol is a beautiful ,quiet well kept complex and all the staff are excellent. The complex is central, near the shops and bars and the beach. There is an excellent local bus service, clean buses and on time, stop just outside the complex . We are hoping to return again , next year.
