Overview of Villa Vista Reina in Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

On the finish of March we took a visit to Lanzarote to get some winter solar. I’d been the yr earlier than and liked getting away from gray England to some much-needed Vitamin C. This yr, my boyfriend, toddler, and I, stayed within the fab Villa Vista Reina in Playa Blanca – not removed from all of the enjoyable of Flamingo Seashore. Right here’s my assessment…

loungers round the Villa Reina

Reggie, Ben and I arrived at Villa Vista Reina, within the Vista Lobos space, determined to not be on any form of transport any longer. It’d been an extended day!

Maria, the villa rep was there, prepared and ready to greet us with a smile and the keys to leisure. She helped us with our baggage as we ascended up the steps to the entrance door at Villa Vista Reina.

Oh it was good to be inside!

And Champagne? For us? Go on then.

The villa already regarded nice – Maria took us on a home tour round the whole lot we wanted and wished for our 5 days away.

Sleeping at Villa Vista Reina

Villa Vista Reina is a 6-bed villa. One of the best two rooms have been upstairs (bag these ones fast!) however we wished to be downstairs as I already had my eye on the bunk mattress room for my son. At two years outdated, and virtually a metre tall already, I at all times fear the place and the way he’s going to sleep after we go away.

He’s nonetheless in a big cot at residence, however he’s effectively previous a journey cot.

I’d studied the pictures of the villa on-line, and thought if I may flip the bunk mattress spherical, he may sleep in there – with a barrier to cease him falling out. It labored completely. And he liked having all of the area. He affectionately named it ‘New Mattress’.

There have been two single beds on this room, in addition to the bunk mattress, however we selected a double room on the identical stage as him. The one on the again with the opposite bunk mattress, because it was the most important mattress.

There was nonetheless one other double downstairs, with an en suite, and a single room downstairs too.

So, two double en suites upstairs, one massive double with a bunk mattress downstairs, one double en suite downstairs, one bunk and two singles in a room, after which a single too. A lot of area!

Consuming at Villa Vista Reina

The primary evening we have been there, Maria advised us about Baily Bar over the highway. It was only a 5-minute stroll and seeing as we have been effectively previous our typical supper time, it appeared the best possibility. I had hen and chips (basic) and the lads had Spag Bol. Mine was effective, neither of these two may eat theirs although, saying it was grim.

Not what we wished for our first evening!

Eating in Playa Blanca

We walked again to the villa and had an early evening after our journey day.

Subsequent morning and I’d packed some prompt porridges for Reggie, and along with the milk we’d been given within the fridge, he was effective. However what about us?

We walked into city, to SuperDino grocery store, to select up some necessities for the home, and to benefit from the BBQ on the villa.

However, simply outdoors SuperDino – stopping us in our tracks – was a churro restaurant serving breakfast too – no joke these have been a few of the largest and finest churros I’ve ever had. Take a look at them!

Reggie liked the decadence of his breakfast quantity two.

At SuperDino we received a couple of bits for breakfasts and lunches within the villa as knew we have been on a funds for the week, and so had agreed we’d eat on the villa moderately than eat out for each meal.

BBQ at the villa

I like a international grocery store so we made the many of the plump fruits, bakery, and meat counter too. We picked up sufficient stuff for an epic BBQ.

We picked up a couple of tapas bits to eat again on the villa too. We discovered consuming out in Lanzarote fairly costly, so it was good to have these choices.

Getting round Playa Blanca

Getting a taxi was a faff, one which continued for the vacation each time we wanted one!

In the long run we managed to get one from the bus station over the highway from the grocery store, as he was dropping off some passengers.

If we’d have purchased the pushchair we may’ve walked the half-hour or so again, however we had bottles of water / milk, and a 2 yr outdated who simply wished to be carried the entire time. We may additionally have gotten the bus, however that was in 25 minutes.

The swimming pool at The Baily Bar over the highway is sensible. There’s an excellent shallow pool, a reasonably shallow pool with a ledge, after which a extremely deep pool too. Reggie liked having the ability to arise within the pool.

It’s free to go, though there’s additionally a Blissful Hour to benefit from too. It’s handy to the villa however I actually wouldn’t advocate consuming right here. We went once more after the Spag Bol debacle, and Reggie had fishfingers (which have been gray!) and Ben had a steak which was disgustingly fatty. He even complained this time however no response.

Persist with the pool and the drinks!

Extra issues to do in Playa Blanca

Earlier than we went I had an inventory of issues I wished to do in Playa Blanca once more, however with the beautiful villa, the lure of the pool, and having a dramatic two yr outdated, we simply determined to hang around across the villa, the seaside and the swimming pools more often than not.

The pool offered us with hours of leisure. From going and ‘waking it up’ within the morning and taking the quilt off, to swimming not less than an hour or two a day with Reggie, and one with out, after which ‘placing it to sleep’ at evening.

I used to be fearful about pool security however we made it clear to Reggie to not go close to it with out us, and at this age, considered one of us was with him always anyway. I believe having the pool actually helped his water confidence, and he liked splashing round in it.
