... fruit... Lazing by the pool, we topped up our tan and I even managed to get sunburnt feet! Although cold, the pool was a welcome place to cool-off.
Soaking up every last ray of sunshine, we didn't head to dinner until 8.30pm and walked along the gorgeous water front, back to Playa Cucharas for my birthday dinner - the waiter treated me to a sparkler in my drink (just like at Valentines haha). Our last day ...
... the beach. After a slow wander home, we made our way to Playa del Carmen for my birthday night out. Its an hour long bus ride, but a great way to see some of the island. We find a small restaurant overlooking the ocean for dinner, and I'm quite proud get ashamed to say, that we scoffed the most amazing meat platter - family size - 2 pork chops, 4 chicken breasts, 3 small steaks, 2 pork belly and 2 large steaks! YUM! All topped off with a jug of their finest sangria. The meat plate ...
... bags and during that time Derek arrived back home after also successfully completing the long exhausting day as well!!
We helped clean out his stuff too while he went in to lay down and talk with Dave.
Now I'm getting ready to call it a night. I didn't even compete and I'm exhausted so can't imagine how those poor boys feel gosh! Me and me have our flight back to London tomorrow! Still have 3 more days to spend in the city and so excited for my bus ...
... a LONG day. And I'm not even doing the race so I can't image how those people are gonna survive. Em and I are taking the 6am bus over the to beach to watch the start of the race and then won't be able to come back until about 11pm. Really hoping the sun is at least out for a little bit, but at the same time for the sake of all the racers I hope it's mostly overcast. I will definitely be napping on the beach a lot tomorrow. And maybe getting a little ...
A very early but not as bad as I expected 3:30am wake up. We were all packed so all there was to do was get dressed and head downstairs. The airport was an hour and 15 away but the trains are not in operation that early in the morning. So we had to have a cab come pick us up. Very easy ride to the airport except our cab driver went into the parking garage for some reason, and then we he tried to exit it was going to cost 3 pounds, so he reversed and parked outside ...

We have stayed here a few times and always loved the freindly approach of all the staff, the cafe now under new owner ship was even better than before. Excellent value for money and the best bacon butties on the island!

The Celeste Apartments are located in Costa Teguise, the second-largest but still quite small tourist resort on Lanzarote. The Celeste is in the centre of the resort, a five minute walk from the beach and main restaurant/bar area. The complex is well designed with ground and first floor apartments built around a court yard with a small pool at the centre (more for dipping in than swimming). We had a two bedroom apartment for just two of us so had lots of space but had there been the maximum of four people it would have seemed a bit small. The apartment was clean and comfortable with two twin rooms, joint living area and kitchen with breakfast bar and small kitchen, it also had a furnished balcony off the living room that had the sun all day and a smaller balcony off one of the bedrooms. A lot of previous reviews used the word 'basic' to describe the Celeste, I wasn't sure what this meant but now presume its due to the apartment facilities, for example, although there is enough crockery and cutlery, as well as a toaster, kettle, microwave and a few saucepans and cooking utensils, there is no oven (just a two ring hob) and you might want to pack 'necesities' such as a bottle opener. Having said that there is a long list of things which you can hire from reception for the week including kitchen equipment such as a mini oven, as well as things for the beach i.e. body boards and windbreaks, we managed fine without hiring anything however, even though we cooked a few meals in the apartment. The resort was very quiet at the time we went as it was the start of the season (although the weather was great), there are some bars close to the Celeste, but these are not open late and it was fairly quiet while we were there.
Have recently spent a week in the Celeste Apartments. - It was better than we expected. We booked a 2 bedroomed apartment - quite spacious. The apartment was spacious and clean. Had a slight problem with a smell coming from the bathroom - we think it was the drains but we soon sorted it out. The only other problem was the fridge - it was all iced up - so had to defrost it. Comment from my teenagers - had to pay to have the t.v. on - we decided to go without. It made a difference not having the distraction of the T.V.! The bars and shops were closeby and its about 5 minute walk to the beach. It was nice to know everywhere was close and convenient to get to but at the same time you were far enough away from the noisy bars - there are bars allocated right by the complex - so i would imagine it would get busy and noisy in the summer - reception were very helpful - and being able to store our passports etc. in the safe was a relief. Watch out for the car hire in reception though - we went through all the paperwork and were then told we had to give 100 eurs deposit! All in all it was a smashing holiday - if you want value for moneyFinally I just want to say how useful the reviews have been on this website - which is why I decided to write my own!!
stayed here for 4 nights in december apartment spacious and clean tucked away in quiet area away from bars which to be fair at time of visit resort as a whole was pretty quiet, anyway i can see if you got the wrong apartment in high season late night noise could be a problem my advice if you decide to go to this resort and apartments try and go out of peak season and you will have a great stay.
Una estancia estupenda
Me alojé aquí 4 noches en diciembre. El apartamento era amplio y limpio, estaba resguardado en una zona tranquila lejos de los bares pero, a decir verdad, cuando estuvimos allí el complejo entero era bastante tranquilo, de todos modos. Supongo que si te dan el apartamento equivocado en temporada alta puede que te moleste el ruido a última hora de la noche, mi consejo es que si vas a este complejo de apartamentos no vayas en temporada alta y así tendrás una estancia estupenda.
We stayed in the Celeste apartments on the 22nd Sept and would definately go back. The apartments were basic but clean. The staff were great. The cleaners very friendly and even the caretaker was always on hand. I have to admit, we have been on a few holidays abroad but i don't think the staff anywhere else have been as nice as at the Celeste. As i said it was basic but isn't that what we want when we go away, The apartments all have there own balcony or bathing area, so you get as much privacy as you want. We will be going back.
We have just returned from a 2 week stay. I have to say the location of these apartments are fantastic within easy walking distance from the beach shops etc. The staff were friendly and always helpful.
Brilliant just brilliant
