... t stop that often so we just stayed touring the area until we got off downtown. We found the main shopping street and were surprised by the lack of T Shirts. Instead we found ceramics, trinkets, fans, scarves, and magnets. After perusing the shops we decided on some coffee. The coffee shop we chose had quite a few tables occupied and one older waiter. It took a while to get waited on and he spoke no English. Since ...
This morning I had (amongst other things) a glass of champagne and some chocolate (a chocolate doughnut) for my breakfast. After that we got a taxi into Playa Blanca, and went over to Fuerteventura for the day on the Fred.Olsen Express fast ferry (note that the full stop between Fred and Olsen was intentional, that's how it seems to be written ...
We got up this morning, and had some breakfast. Then we had our welcome meeting, where we booked ourselves onto three trips, 'fire mountain', 'natural wonders' and a show on Friday evening. After this, we walked from our hotel, the H10 Timanfaya Palace into Playa Blanca, where we had a snack before walking back. After returning to the hotel, we sat by the pool for a while (one of the 'four poster' deck chairs was free so we sat on ...
Once at Stansted airport, we checked in and had some brunch in Witherspoon's. Then, after a bit of shopping we went to gate 2 for our flight. We then boarded our aircraft, a Thomson Airways Boeing 737-800, G-TAWC. We are now well on our way (for some reason, the displays showing our location on a map folded into the ceiling after the flight safety video, and haven't come down since). ...
We took a tour of Cesar Manrique's unique cultural creations on Lanzarote Island. Cesar Manrique was an artist and architect whose imprint are found in many places in the Canary Islands. He grew up in Lanzarote and had a special affinity for the stark, arid volcanic landscape here. His passion for unifying nature and culture ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Santa Rosa Costa Teguise
Great Value for money
Santa Rosa Apartments are excellent, very clean and spacious. The food was average, but the price was right. Roughly under £3 for a meal. Weather was 70 avg, with only two days of rain over a month. The pool was heated as of December and we will certainly return this time next year
Had a week at the Santa Rosa from the 29th November, huge apartment booked independently, with the cheapest flights from BA!! Stayed on a half voard basis and whilst the food was OK, it wasnt always very warm (see previous reviews by other travellers) so get there early.
Eating out and about I can reccomend for a snack and a drink the Terrace Bar in the Los Molinos appartments, onl;y next door and a two minute walk away, large beer 1.50. Nice english style food and a great welcome from Pete, the proprietor and his trusty sidekick Glenda. For a special meal go to the Cassablanca in the main town part of Costa, an excellent meal, well worth the money.
I would go back to the Santa Rosa as the value was fantastic, even if the food wasnt totally to my taste.
We have just returned from a week in Lanzarote and stayed @ the Santa Rosa in Costa Teguise. What a great complex this is, myself ,my partner,my son and daughter in law had a lovely week @ the Santa Rosa pity about the weather wet and warm and just the 1 day when it was hot enough for us to stretch out by the fantastic pool, there is also a kiddies pool.
Wir waren gerade für eine Woche auf Lanzarote und waren dabei im Santa Rosa in Costa Teguise untergebracht. Was für ein großartiger Komplex. Mein Partner, mein Sohn, meine Schwiegertochter und ich hatten eine schöne Woche im Santa Rosa. Schade war nur, dass das Wetter nass und warm war, nur an einem Tag war es warm genug, um es sich am fantastischen Pool bequem zu machen. Es gab auch einen Kinderpool.
We spent 7 days in the Santa Rosa apartments at the end of August 2006. What an absolute gem this place is!! If you're looking for the "Blackpool in the sun" type of holiday then these apartments are probably not what you're looking for. Based on the outskirts of Costa Teguise (a nice leisurely 15 minute walk from the commercial centre) makes the accommodation lovely and quiet but ideally situated if you like the hustle and bustle at night.
Nos alojamos en los apartamentos Santa Rosa en octubre y eran de primera categoría. Nuestro bungalow estaba junto a la piscina y estaba muy bien equipado con todo lo que necesitábamos (bar y hervidor). Los bungalows no tienen aire acondicionado, por lo que estábamos un poco incómodos durante la noche, pero hay tiendas cerca para alquilar. El personal de la recepción, el restaurante, y el de limpieza eran simpáticos y serviciales. La opción de media pensión te da una excelente relación calidad-precio, y la comida está muy bien. Como los españoles se alojan aquí muy seguido la comida es variada y tiene sabores locales. La única cosa que le hace falta al restaurante es la música de fondo, ya que le hacía falta al ambiente. La zona de la piscina era atractiva, muy bien diseñada y la limpiaban todos los días. Anuncian que la playa está a 50-100 metros pero están equivocados, son como 300-400 metros. Aunque vale la pena el esfuerzo, es excelente para practicar el esnórquel. Como los apartamentos están en la orilla de la Costa Teguise es un paseo a pie bastante bueno para ir al centro, en donde están la mayoría de los restaurantes y bares, así que un coche te vendría bien y son razonablemente baratos en las compañías de alquiler (busca el mejor precio).
Nos alojamos en el Santa Rosa por 11 noches a finales de mayo. Realmente disfrutamos de nuestra estancia en Lanzarote, pero Dios mío, ¡hacía mucho viento! La habitación estaba bien equipada con todo, pero nosotros no usamos la cocina, ya que la comida estaba tan barata que comimos fuera cada noche. Comimos en el hotel una vez, pero no nos apeteció mucho y nos dio la impresión de que sería lo mismo cada noche. También estaba invadido de jubilados españoles. La mayoría de los días los pasamos en la piscina, y era principios de temporada así que no había mucha gente. Un par de familias inglesas, con niños. Los patios del hotel estaban muy limpios y el personal era muy servicial. Hay un campo de golf gratis que es una locura, le tienes que preguntar a recepción. También tienen acceso a internet en el vestíbulo. La zona de la piscia estaba muy limpia, aunque sólo había dos sombrillas, y una parte por separado era para los de tiempo compartido, que se suponía tenían la piscina climatizada pero estaba igual de fría. Comimos en la mayoría de los restaurantes cerca del hotel y de las partes centrales, ya que el taxi sólo te costaba 3 euros. También fuimos al parque acuático por dos días, y nos pareció fantástico hasta que tuvimos un accidente en uno de los toboganes y nos lastimamos, así que si vas, ten cuidado con el tobogán amarillo ya que necesitas una figura que tiene forma de un 8 para bajar, y nos caímos.
We stayed in the santa rosa for 11 nights at the end of may. we really enjoyed our time in lanzarote, but my god how windy is it!! the hotel room was well kitted out with everything but we didnt really use the kitchen much as food was so cheap we ate out every night. we ate in the hotel once but didnt really rate it there and have a feeling it would be the same every night. It was also over run by spanish oaps. we spent most days by the pool and as it was begining of season there wasnt alot of people about. A couple of english families, with children. The hotel grounds were very clean and the staff was very helpful. there is a free crazy golf course, if you ask at reception. there is also internet access in the lobby. the pool area was very clean, only 2 umbrella's there though, and a seperate part for time share holders with a supposed heated pool but felt just ask cold. We ate in most of the restaurants near the hotel and at the central parts as a taxi only cost 3 euros. We also went to the water park 2 days and thought this was great until we both had an accident on one of the slides and injured ourselve, so if you go be warned when going on the yellow slide which you need a figure of 8 ring to go down it as we fell off. everything else at the watr park was great.
We stayed at the santa rosa apartments in march this year for 1 week. There seems to be 3 types of apartments that you can stay in at the Santa Rosa, There are Spacious apartments above the restuarant which we stayed in just by chance (See pictures) and there are small type bungalows near reception and another apartment block which the apartments appear to be smaller (from the outside anyway). Apartments are spacious and very clean. Housekeeping and clean towels every day apart from a sunday and thursday. gardens are kept very tidy and whole complex kept very clean (No bugs at all). Pool Very clean but Very Cold!,, there is a private pool at the top of the complex which you cannot go near unless your a timeshare owner and I think they have a heated Pool!!!
We stayed at the Santa Rosa apartments in October and they are first class. Our bungalow was next to the pool and was fully kitted out with everything we needed (bar a kettle). The bungalows do not have air conditioning so we were a little uncomfortable at night, but there are hire shops locally. Reception, restaurant and cleaning staff were friendly and helpful. The half board option is excellent value for money as the food is very good. As the Spanish stay here alot the food choice is varied and has a local flavour. The only thing missing from the restaurant was some background music as it lacked atmosphere and ambience. The pool area was inviting, well designed and cleaned every day. The beach is advertised as between 50 to 100 m away but this is misleading, it is more like 300 - 400 m. It is well worth the effort though, with excellent snorkelling. As the apartments are on the edge of Costa Teguise it is a fair walk to the centre where most of the restaurants and bars are so a car is handy and reasonably cheap from the local hire companies (shop around though and barter).
