|Further details indoors|
Villa Rioja is the ideal place to stay for all the family. Besides having it's own pool and patio garden it is surrounded by lovely beaches. It's nearest beach is Las Coloradas and is between the Papagayo and Dorada beaches, so you have plenty to choose from. All are beautiful bays.
You can walk along the shoreline from Papagayo to the Light-House 8 Km or so, with many interesting things to see.
There is a Marina, just a 10 minute stroll away, where they have many shops, restaurants, boats and a Market day every Wednesday and Saturday.
The Villa has quality furnishings, spacious rooms and fantasic decor throughout. Whether you are dining by the pool or dining inside, you will be eating in style!
The nearest shop is 100 metres which is open all day, every day. The Iberostar Papagoyo (4 star) Hotel is two minutes away where you can use their facilities, including evening entertainment.
There is plenty of parking space, including one in your own drive. On your doorstep are taxis, a local bus service that will take you all over Playa Blanca for 1 Euro and a friendly Spanish bar that offers great food. What more could you want!
|Further details outdoors|
As Villa Roija is in a quiet residential, local Spanish area, it is lovely to just lay by the pool on the sunbeds to work on your tan.
Maybe you would prefer to read a book on the shaded patio sipping Sangria. Whatever you do it will be a relaxing holiday.
The garden and pool are well maintained, as is everything here!
There is a keysafe located by the outside door and a safe inside for your passports and valuable's although it is not necessary.
Subject to availability, arrival and departure days of the week are completely flexible.
Our check out time is usually 12 noon and our check in time is 2 p.m. Earlier or later times can usually be negociated, dependant upon other guests timings. In any event, cases can be looked after to suit your flights.
The Canary Islands region
Lanzarote, the most easterly island in the Canary archipelago, is in many ways unique. Although all the islands are volcanic, it is on Lanzarote that the volcanic features are most impressive and easily approachable. It is possible to take a bus right to the very top of a volcano that, geologically speaking, has recently erupted and, an hour later, travel over low hills of volcanic ash and cinder on a camel.
Lanzarote has the most consistent climate. Since it is situated close to Africa with no high mountains, Lanzarote has more sunshine that any other of the islands.
There are plenty of places to visit.
For entertainment in the evening it has to be Rancho Texas, which has a full Western show with singing, dancing and other acts, all you can drink (anything you like), a full Barbeque and Line dancing, which is great fun. This and many other excursions can be booked locally for very little cost with different pick-up areas nearby.
Playa Blanca is the most southerly resort on Lanzarote and has many advantages for those who are looking for Sun, Sea and Sand as well as good fish restaurants that generally host the catch of the day. From Rubicon's seafront you can see across to Fuerteventura, which is a mere 11Km by ferry. Ferries cross to the island several times a day from the main harbour.
The sea front is populated with a variety of beaches, notably Los Colorados, Playa Dorada, Playa Flamingo, Rubicon (that now has a fantastic marina) and Papagayo. Restaurants are in abundance, most of them are very good, one of the best is "Los Hervideros". Your nearest bar/cafeteria is El Pleblo and for evening dining Casa Roja is excellent! For Indian "Tandoor House" and the list goes on. All this information is in the Villa waiting for you.
We highly recommend "The Galeria Bar" for a drink. You can relax and soak up the atmosphere overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
The Bar also has all the major sports, ie., football, on a massive T.V. screen.
There is something here for everybody! Fishing, swimming, water ski-ing, boats to hire, water scooters, banana boats, glass bottom boats, submarines, parachutes towed by speedboats, horse riding, paint balling, camel rides, tennis, crazy golf, pitch & putt...
For those of you not so energetic, there are hotels with great live entertainment, quiz's, big screen TV's with sport programmes, Karaoke (if you like to sing), even bingo and much more.
Playa Blanca festival is usually early March. Each town has their festivities on different days so if you miss one you have chance to catch up with another somewhere else on the Island.

"An ideal base for a relaxing holiday!"
Looking for an ideal base for a relaxing holiday? We found Villa Rioja to be a well appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean villa. We were met upon arrival by Brian who showed us around the villa. He and Lesley had thoughtfully left us fresh fruit, wine, tea, coffee and milk – a lovely welcoming gesture! The Marina, just a 15 minute walk away has an assortment of bars and eateries to suit all tastes and a very busy market is held there twice per week. A five minute drive gets you to the centre of Playa Blanca with its good quality restaurants, bars and shops. We found the whole area had a very relaxed ambience. Many thanks to Brian and Lesley for their attention to detail – it was much appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are again delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. For 9 years now we have always trid to be the best at all we do. Seems our care and attention to detail is appreciated by our guests. Many of whom return every year. Brian & Lesley.

"Superb Villa, Fantastic Agents"
What a great holiday I just wished we’d booked for two weeks instead of one! I’ve never booked separate accommodation and flights before but Brian and Lesley made organising it all so easy. From reserving the villa ‘til we sorted out flights through to organising airport transfers they were brilliant. On arrival we were given a quick 10 minute tour of the villa and left to enjoy our holiday. Although we didn’t have to contact Brian and Lesley during our stay you were left in no doubt that you could ring them with any query and they would do whatever they could to help. We especially liked the thoughtful touches such as providing drinks, fruit and other goodies on arrival as well as providing everyday things like towels, washing up liquid, soap, coffee, tea etc. This saved us loads of weight on the baggage allowance and loads of time not having to remember it or buy it all on arrival. The Villa itself is fabulous – no more hotels for us! I There’s plenty of space, its very well appointed and very clean. We have a lively three year old so we really appreciated the things that made life easier for those with a young family such as the private pool, the well appointed kitchen, the downstairs loo, the big bedrooms, the high quality TV/DVD. There was even a buggy/stroller available to use so don’t bother paying the extra baggage allowance to bring one. The Villa is located in a quiet residential area and everything you want is within walking distance. The nearby Marina is lovely with plenty of places to eat. We particularly recommend ‘La Casa Brigida’ – the food was exquisite. If you don’t fancy the half-hour walk to the centre of Playa Blanca then use the bus service. Two buses an hour, always on time and it costs just 1.20 per person. Finally, if you’re eating in a visit to Roper’s is essential. It’s a long time since I’ve seen so much great produce, meat and fish all in one place. Brian and Lesley really care about what they do and genuinely want you to have a fabulous holiday. Please ignore the bad review of September 2011 – it didn’t put us off booking this villa and it shouldn’t put you off either!
Thank you for this review guys! It is appreciated. We firmly beieve that the extra mile we always go to is what sets us apart from most others. Also living here means we are on hand if needed to assist in any way. Probably the most important thing however, is that we do not rely on others to look after this villa. We do everything ourselves, so the standard is always the highest possible. (No dusting around things!) Brian & Lesley.

"Wonderful accomodation, clean, comfortable and beautifully located."
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at this wonderful Villa. On arrival, not only were we given a guided tour by Brian, we were treated to a lovely "honeymoon" arrival pack including chocolates, a bottle of bubbly and lots of other goodies, this really made us feel special and enabled us to relax into our holiday immediately. The Villa is spotless and really comfortable, it is located in a very quiet residential area and everything you want is within easy walking distance. The nearby Marina is full of lovely restaurants which are reasonably priced and the selection of foods available is varied. We really didn't venture much further than the Marina or Playa Blanca which is just a little bit further along the coast. to be honest, there was no need, we wanted a relaxing holiday with lots of good food and comfortable surroundings and thats exactly what we got. Thanks to Brian and Lesley who really made us feel welcome and we hope to be able to return soon Alan and Lorraine Morton
Thank you so much for staying with us, for appreciating the extra mile we always go to and for this review. We live here all year round and always meet and welcome all our guests, unlike so many who “manage” their homes here remotely. We are always on hand to assist, or advise, our guests whilst on their holiday here. You would be amazed things we have been pleased and able to do…. Hospital trips in our car, help with arranging new travel plans when the “ash cloud” struck, trips to the dentist, the shops and more… We think we are the best. This lovely couple certainly think so! Thank you, please return next year. Brian & Lesley

"Villa great, owners awful, when things go wrong beyond your control, flight delay"
read previous reviews before booking and all seemed great!. Villa and amenities were brill. Downside was we were approx 2 hours delayed and stuck on runway, couldn't contact owners at that time due to prob with mob, thought ok will ring when we land, no answer. Still thought ok they know our flight no's they'll realise we'll keep phoning. Got to villa approx 11.15pm all in darkness no one there to let us in!! kept ringing they reluctantly came to let us in after 20 mins on phone explaining everything, only to be verbally abused and swore at, they thought we had done this on purpose!! (like we would ruin our only 2 weeks away all year)!! AWFUL AWFUL way to treat customers with NO apology, ghastly people. Only happpy when things go all swimmingly no hiccups, unfortunately life's not like that sometimes!
This family arrived over 3 hrs late, with no advance warning. They just turned up at the villa (forgetting the requested call from the airport) and demanded instant access! We made the 30 mins drive to the villa in just 20 (!) only to be met by abusive people, who seemed to have taken rather a lot of alcohol. If anyone stays with us and can honestly say the same as these people, we will give an immediate and full refund.. There, it’s in writing! Come and stay, we promise you a lovely warm welcome. The way we have always done with all our four properties for 7 years now. Our endless repeat guests can confirm. (20 names & email addresses can easily be supplied on request to verify). Also please read all the other reviews on this excellent website. The real story is SO very different! We will not be damaged by this unfair review…. We are shocked by it… Brian & Lesley.
