Golondrina1: a bright and comfortable Bungalow at forefront in PlayaMatagorda, the most peaceful and safest area on island: a very privileged situation!
The bungalow Golondrina1 is located on the first row to the beach, in the best group (the IV) of the 7 of a well-known 3 stars resort, facing the long beach (blue flag) of Matagorda, a few minutes from the heart of the tourist center of Puerto Del Carmen.
Here, less than 60 meters away, the 18 Kilometers of beach that crawl between Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife, guests will enjoy above all the rest and relaxation, while being able to easily walk to all amenities such as shops, restaurants, supermarkets, etc.
Golondrina I is a corner bungalow with a beautiful fully furnished sun terrace with a thatched roof and access ramp for wheelchairs in south-west exposure; part of the horizontal architecture of small block of 4-5 semi-detached bungalows. From the terrace, guests do not watch here on the wall next to the resort, but on a very large palm garden that was created as a windbreak: a unique touch that only Matagorda has. Between the palms sparkles, especially in the afternoon, the Atlantic, and the sunsets on Lanzarote are sometimes dramatics.
The bungalows have a living-dining area with spacious American kitchen with a breakfast bar, a bathroom with tub and marble basin, a so-called Solana (an inner courtyard for hanging laundry, store beach stuff and cooling the apartment), and a separate bedroom with two big single beds that can be put together easily and a big wardrobe with a free of charge safe-deposit.
The lounge is comfortable, modern and attractively decorated in bright colors and lovely details. At no further payment is at your disposal a TV with all international satellite and TDT programs, a radio and a DVD/CD player; there is as well a free of charge wireless internet and even a phone.
In the kitchen all services are collected in a built-in with cooker hood, washing machine, double glass fire-stove, fridge, microwave and a little double- grill oven which allow self-sufficiency at home. Cooking and eating utensils, small appliances, cups and cutlery abound.
For the sometimes slightly cooler nights in the winter of Lanzarote (do not forget that we are in Africa), a radiator (free of charge) ans some plaids are at hand; while the summer heat is moderated significantly by the typical Canarian roof, the open "solana" and a fan.
Close to the airport (but not noisy!), Matagorda is definitely the safest area, hot, green and peaceful on the island, in addition to the more central! It is served, in front of the Resort, by two long, sandy and free beaches. The road that separates the resort from the beach is closed to the traffic, (except for the police: a discreet but constant control) so you can say you are right on the beach! The road is for pedestrians (that allows a walk in the shade of palm trees) and for bicycles. Near the complex there is a large and well equipped shopping center with supermarket, banks, bars and restaurants of all kinds, and cheap car rental.
Golondrina 1 is located on the front row to the beach of the touristic complex. There are about 60 meters from the Paseo Maritimo. And then the beach is just there! For more privacy, Golondrina 1 is surrounded by its private garden, with plants and flowers. Should find the Atlantic too cold or you just do not like salt water, you have available a total of 7 pools at the complex (4 of them are heated and 3 have a children area). Right next to Golondrina 2, the lapping of the quiet pool invites you to a dive.
Matagorda is the northern part of Puerto del Carmen and is highly appreciated by our guests as an alternative to the pulsating life in the center. Nevertheless, here it is anything but boring if you would like to leave his resting area. A taxi will take a few minutes (10/20 minutes walking) to where, boom, according to taste, the bass or just the Timple sounds fine. But what really makes this place so beautiful, is that the mile-wide beach and the Paseo Maritimo are only for pedestrians and bicycles (no cars!). Matagorda also offers a bus service to Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Arrecife.

The Canary Islands region
Politically belonging to Spain, however, is geographically closer to Africa; the closest of the Canary Islands, also called the Fortunate Islands, or the islands of eternal spring. Lanzarote will surprise you with its lunar landscape, volcanic, charming, with the friendliness of its people and its places of art, expertly mixedi to nature. Without great heights, is an island easy to visit and easy to fall in love with.
Puerto del Carmen
The resort is situated in “Matagorda”, being part of the big “Puerto del Carmen”.
Matagorda is the safest, warmest, greenest and calmest part of the island; and very centric too! It's nearby the airport (5 minutes), but not noisy. A very privileged situation!
It has two free beaches, very large and sandy, facing directly the complex; one of the two is a bit more savage and with some rocks. If you like you can rent umbrellas and deck-chairs at the others.
The street between the complex and the see is forbidden to the traffic; so, you are quite directly on the beach! Bicycles are there to be hired.
The bungalow is located virtually in the forefront (60 meters from the beach), in one of the best resorts on the island (three keys). it gets sun all day, and has a great view of the ocean, on the palm groove and to the fantastic sunsets of the island. Surrounded by a refreshing big private garden full of flowers, it is very close to the quiet pool of group IV; and also very very closed to the one of group III, heated and with children area.
