Feliz Cumpleaños a mi and its a warm 28 degree day! Nursing a sangria hangover we have a delicious cooked breakfast before jumping on the 9am bus from Playa Bastian to the inland Teguise markets - the oldest in Lanzarote. Here we find 100's of stalls selling everything from toe rings and cactus muffins to 'genuine' fake handbags. After half an hour we've seen most of it but have another 2.5 ...
... large, a second table was required, just for the plate! Rolling our bellies down the hill, we head to the Island Bar, for a live music night. The owner Cara and her husband Rory, are friends with my cousin, and Rory has us clapping and cheering all night long with his very entertaining music. We met the coolest taxi driver on the ride home, who complemented my (drunken) Spanish, and told us how the water, electricity and petrol plants are side-by-side, so if one goes... they all do!
Got a good nights rest so waking up at 5:30 wasn't too bad. Not to mention how anxious I was anyway for the day ahead. Got ready super quick and headed down to the bus. It was a very nice charter bus so I snoozed just a little but the ride to town was only about 35 or 40 minutes. When we got into town every sidewalk had people flooding down to the beach. The driver took us as close as he could before getting stuck in traffic. We got off the bus ...
... 30am. fingers, toes, and everything else crossed on that one. Because it not then man did we pack the wrong stuff. Shorts and tank tops. Thank god I wore a hoodie for the plane otherwise I would be freezing right now.
Breakfast consisted of a nice sized buffet with some good options for everyone. And afterwards Em and I went to do some reading by pool, but again I only lasted like 30 minutes because it was so cold outside so we headed back up ...
... and then I didn't remember "verde" meant green so I kept pushing the wrong button. All those years of Spanish and didn't even remember my colors. Whoops.
Enjoyed a fine array of salami, cheese and crackers while watching the iron man parade process through the hotel. The parade was led by this all female drum line and they were thee most lively group! It was a very very cool experience to see. Just kickin' it all day tomorrow, really hoping the sun decides to come ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Los Zocos Club Resort Costa Teguise
Me and my boyfriend stayed for 2 weeks.
Windy or what
Just returned from the Los Zocos in so called breezy teguise (not breezy just gale forcy) and because of the wind it ruined the holiday maybe we got unlucky. Taking away the wind the holiday would of been fine the hotel was very good, we were self catering so we did'nt eat in the complex at all, there were numerous bars and restaurants which done great food but a bit pricey. A note on the hotel try to avoid the 3rd block of apartments as you hardly see the sun in these. One restaurant to note was the Shanghai, a must for lovers of chinese food and also visit the Cutty Sark pub on the seafront cheap breakfasts and great evening meals at reasonable prices.
El sitio con mejor entrenimiento
¡¡¡¡¡¡¡Hola!!!!!!!! ¡¡¡¡El hotel está bien por el entretenimiento y el equipo de animadores!!! ¡¡¡¡¡Jalanda y Marcel!!!!!!! La oferta de todo incluido no es la mejor pero las habitaciones y las comodidades eran mejor de lo que esperábamos y el personal de limpieza era fantástico. Pero deberían poner más sombrillas.
Best entertainment place i have been to
hello!!!!!!!!the hotel is good for the entertainment and the animation team!!!! jalanda and marcel!!!!!!!the all inclusive isn't the best but the rooms and services were more than ou could expect cleaners were brill.There could be more sun shades though
This was the worst All Inclusive Hotel my family have ever stayed in. Grotty, Run Down, Dirty. Moved room by the first hour asked to move hotel by 2nd day and on the 3rd day seen the food was eaten first by the animals as I caught on camcorder.
It's the best!!!
I thought that the los zocas was great for all the family. The swimming pools are great and there is so much to do in just one day. You can go for a lovely swim in the pools and then have a game of tennis. The thing that was great was that the resort never got over crownded. The apertments were lovely had a nice lot of space fo large familys and the beds were pretty comfortabele.
¡¡¡Es el mejor!!!
Me pareció que Los Zocos fue estupendo para toda la familia. Las piscinas son geniales y hay muchas actividades que hacer durante el día. Puedes ir a nadar a las piscinas y luego jugar un partido de tenis. Lo que me pareció genial era que el hotel nunca estaba demasiado lleno de gente. Los apartamentos eran preciosos y había bastante espacio para familias grandes y las camas eran bastante cómodas.
me and my boyfirend went on a last minute holiday in febuary 2003. we paid ?300 pp all inclusive 7nts so cant complain too much. as a travel agent ive heard a lot of feedback on costa teguise. its very spread out and hasnt really got a centre. its all seperated out. beaches are nice and sandy and its fun to watch the windsurfers. when we went the weather wasnt to good so that put a downer on things a bit at first. we did eat out one night and found a really nice restauarant for what you may pay at home. shopping is ok. i wouldnt stay in tegiuse again i would try playa blanca or puerto del carmen. playa blance is a little smaller and pueto del carman is a bit tackier with a macdonalds but has a centre and a bit more life. when we arrived we got a really nice big room, with a great balcony and a big bathroom. very clean and comfy beds. we had a new rooom so request one of these.most rooms have pool views.request a high floor as things can be noisey. a very much family orientated complex. i have no problem in selling this as a selfcatering complex. didnt do any excursions but went to teguise market ourselves on the bus for ?1pp. worth a trip out for the souveniers. the food - well as a vegetarian it was limited. i wouldnt go all inc again. breakfasts were greasy dinner could be luke warm and a bit picked through but lunch was good when they cooked pizza and fajitas with onion rings. watch out tho lunch can be last nights left overs!! the entertainment at night was awful. good for the kids at the start but then it got really bad. dont drink the vodka im sure its nail varnish remover in disguise! its only all inclusive till 11. overall a nice break away but would only go self catering again. not bad for what we paid. hope you found this useful.
I cannot tell people enough about THE LOS ZOCOS CLUB,It has definitely been the very best resort I have ever been to..My first holiday there had been with my two children on the recomendation of my travel agent. The kids had very full,fun and organised week.The apartments are low rise ,well maintained,all with pool views and to good standard of decoration. Staff ,hospitality,entertainment,food,facilities etc. can not be beaten in our opinion. I have also been back on a girls holiday and again our experience of THE LOS ZOCOS was an outstanding success-We also enjoyed the cusine of the local restaurants and bars-A SEAFOOD LOVERS DREAM DESTINATION.Great shops,restaurants and bars within a short walk,beach just across the road and no late night noise - what more could you ask for ? THUMBS UP TO THE LOS ZOCOS ----------------WILL BE BACK SOON-ELAINE
