... for the return bus, so find a spot in the sun and a necessary chocolate brownie/birthday cake. The bus driver tells us how the law states that no high-rise buildings can be built in Lanzarote, except for one, a 17-story 5 star hotel on the beach front (built when the mayor was out of town).
This afternoon we made our own sangria concoction, composed of a cheap bottle of rioja, cask of pre-mixed sangria ...
... Today we're catching the brand spanking new Edinburgh trams to the airport! What an experience, they are so fast and flash and run almost door-to-door for us. Kev is convinced that the tram bells sounds like the McDonalds beeping timers, and talks about how hungry he is the whole way!
After a 4.5 hours, we have survived the Ryan Air flight and land in the volcanic island that is Lanzarote. It is far from pretty, but an incredible landscape to look over, almost lunar like. ...
... ocean, it really was something else. People kept flooding onto the beach and some people were wading waist deep into the water (fully clothed I should add) just got a view of the madness. At 2 minutes after 7am the horn rang and away they went! I'm hoping I'll be able to post the video I took on here, but just try to image 2,238 men and women just funneling into the water through a like maybe 15 foot wide entrance area. Madness. The pros were in ...
... it for 10 days, enduring the inconvenience of no internet, instead frequenting a café 20 minutes’ walk away and the local hotel’s library and courtyard to gain WiFi access. There was a beautiful pool, plenty long enough for length-swimming, though cool water, and I was able to get some good exercise – and usually had the pool to myself. I’m not one for lying in the sun, but I managed to lightly roast my back ...
Start off with Ryanair flight to Madrid, was a bit worried about baggage as usual, but actually weighed in at exactly 15 kg, so no problem.
Next was a Turkish airlines flight via Istanbul to Beijing. Transit in Istanbul a bit frantic, the airport is enormous and the lines long, but eventually got to the boarding gate and off we were on the long overnight flight to Beijing

Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Corralejo Bay
Atlantis Palace Hotel - muy bueno!
Can I say - my partner and I have just arrived back in London after spending a week at the Atlantis Palace and agree with the high ratings given to this hotel by the other reviewers. The room, food, service was excellent and the hotel seems more relaxed than the Atlantis Bahia Real (5*) hotel further down the road. This together with temperatures of nearly 80 degrees (and the availability of champagne for breakfast each morning) made this a relaxing break! I would certainly recommend this place - with the grey skies today - I miss the pool already!
Wonderful, best ever.
Stayed here for 7 days Feb 2004. This was the best place we have ever stayed. It was wonderful. The food and accomodation were exceptional. The staff were wonderful, in fact every thing was wonderful.
There was entertainment every night of a very high standard.
We are considering going back next year perhaps April. It has spoilt us and I don't think we'll ever find better. It is more like a 5 star in some ways but more relaxed.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a fantastic week long stay at this hotel which we found at the last minute on teletext!
Excellent hotell *****
On arriving at Atlantis Palace we knew we had come to the right place. Excellent decor and friendly service, meant that we had the best holiday yet. so good, infact, we visit the hotel every year and each time it just gets better and better. with exciting daily entertainment and a great choice of food and drink, Atlantis is the place for families and couples alike. the only problem with the hotel is that we couldnt stay long enough!
Just returned from the Atlantis Palace. Excellent hotel. All the hotel facilities are superb-use the spa; it's well worth it. Food was very good. A few tables are set out on the patio area for breakfast; try this, it's lovely. Room was very clean and well equipped. Poolside grill is fab and good value for money. Evening entertainment is a bit hit and miss and rooms facing the town get late night noise from the bars on the high street but this does not detract from a truly enjoyable stay. 4* rating is accurate as the food/drink is very good but not quite 5*. Very very nice place.
Returned to the UK from the Atlantis Palace on Monday - It was the perfect tonic for the so called UK summer.
The hotel is excellent, very relaxed, peaceful and clean. The food is outstanding, some buffet style - all fresh and of a very high quality and there is also a grill with steaks etc cooked whilst you wait.
Despite being on a package holiday where twin beds are the norm the hotel fulfilled my email request for a double bed which was great too.
I agree with other reviews, the hotel is virtually a 5 star.
Worth every penny of the extra £100 versus other hotels offered by package operators.
Stayed at Atlantis Palace September,2003.
Had the most relaxing holiday.
Found the staff very helpful. All areas of the Hotel clean.
Varied menues and enjoyed having different fish, meet eggs cooked in front of you just as you wanted it cooked.
Enjoyed the holiday so much that Booked holiday for 2004, the week after our return,
Fantastic Hotel but...........
This hotel could easily rate 5* if it were not for the 3* menu and 2* wine list. Staff were freindly and the room was very attractive although beds a little hard, maid kept the room and bathroom exceptionally clean with several changes of bedding through the week and clean towels every day. The architectural layout of the hotel creates a calm and relaxing atmosphere and the pool area is a real oasis and has been exceptionally planned out. The hotel is in a good location for all the town and beach amenities. Would certainly stay there again (but probably only on B&B basis) There is a wide range of menu choice but much typical package holiday and please please improve the wine list not everone likes Spanish wine (sorry!)
Very Relaxing and Peaceful
Quite excellent. My wife and I went there at short notice and were very impressed. It was a most pleasant and relaxing stay. Extremely friendly staff, excellent food, lovely pool and garden area. The grilled prawns at the poolside restaurant for lunch are a must. The 'tropical gardens' in the corridor areas to the rooms are quite amazing. Cleanliness, quite immaculate. A pleasant short stroll to the shopping area of the town. Just one criticism - why was it not built on the sea shore rather than a street inland - not that it really matters.
Simply the best
This is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in on the Med. It far outshines its 4* status. The food is excellent (cooked in front of you), the public spaces and the rooms beautifully decorated and scrupulously clean. Near enough to the centre yet exceptionally quiet at night.
