The Weather in Lanzarote - If you are looking for year-round sunshine and warmth, you have just found it! Daytime temperatures in Lanzarote rarely fall below 18 degrees Celsius, yet the island air is constantly refreshed by cooling breezes that blow off the Atlantic Ocean - so it rarely humid. As part of the Canary Islands, Lanzarote enjoys average maximum temperatures in winter of 21 °C (70 °F) coupled with about six hours of sunshine. However, by May the daily average maximum temperature rises to 24 °C (75 °F) (Autumn months are similar), and it reaches 29 °C (85 °F) in the summer season.>Typically, there are 21 dry days each month during the winter season, rising to 26-29 days in the Spring, and 30 days in the summer months. Hours of sunshine: averages are 6-7 hours of sunshine each day in the winter months, increasing to 9 hours in Spring and Autumn, and 11 hours in the summer months. (Average temperatures, hours of sunshine , and dry days are courtesy of the Met Office website)
Clocks go forward and back at the same time as in the UK, and there is no time difference between the UK and Lanzarote. Generally it gets light slightly later in the morning, and dark slightly later in the evening (compared to the UK)

“Nice villa in good location”
One week stay in Villa Citrus. 35-40 minutes shuttle transfer from airport. Playa Blanca area. Within easy walk to Marina Rubicon. Nice walk along coastal esplanade but can take shorter route if needed. Well stocked supermarket less than 5 minute walk from villa and there is an Iceland nearby. Centre of Playa Blanca within walking distance for us so didn't use local bus as like to walk. Bus stop is however just two minute walk from villa Citrus if wishing to take bus. Liked layout of villa and outdoor space. Roomy, bright. Although only two of us on this occasion main lounge area does separate two distinct bedroom/bathroom areas so would offer privacy at night for families/couples sharing villa. Took heated pool option. Glad we did this and made plenty of use of pool. Usually spend a lot of time at beach when on holiday. Found ourselves just relaxing by the pool instead. Playa Dorada beach close by did look nice however. Plenty facilities within villa if self catering meals Made good use of these and also restaurants /bar at Marina Rubicon. Ate in 3 different restaurants. Good food in all and small bar (never actually noticed its name) next door to jazz bar welcoming place to chill out after dinner at marina. Appeared to be mix of tourists and locals. Would recommend reserving table at some of the restaurants. We managed to get seated but getting a table looks like could be an issue at busier times of year. Neighbours around us very friendly. Took time to say hello without being intrusive. Owner Maureen very helpful and friendly to deal/correspond with. Returned damages deposit in full very quickly following our return home. Welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated and very nice touch after a long day travelling. Overall really good experience of Villa Citrus and an area of Lanzarote we haven't stayed in before.
“Another Great Stay”
Once again we had a fantastic stay at Villa Citrus ... Can not fault the villa at all .. was lovely and clean ... it was nice that there are new sunbeds on the terrace which was a nice addition ... We BBQ'd 3 times and loved all the meat we got from the Dino Hypermarket .... There will be a Iceland opening (if not already) which I think will be a great addition to the area for convenience. I absolutely love this villa and the location and the owners and the management company are 1st class ..... Would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone.
“excellent holiday & villa”
we arrived to a lovley villa everything we needed was there we stayed for 11 days & had an excellent holiday maureen answered all of my questions with a quick respons , the villa was situated i a lovley location we had a car but there was a bus stop near by which we used quit often, the pool man mike was also very helpful in directing us to the best places to eat. would not heatate to return to this villa. you can also walk to the beaches which are about 20 minutes walk away , the supermarket near by has everything you need & also a selection on meats for the bar bq
“could not of been better...in any way, from initial enquiry to our return..amazing”
From beginning to end the service was amazing.. Maureen could not of been more helpful, in every way. From the first email enquiry she was professional, thoughful and kind, Maureen was only to pleased to help and advise throughout. She answered every enquiry straight away whatever day or time it was, amazing service. Just what is needed when booking/taking a holiday for peace of mind, especially considering the age ranges we had, we were a group of mixed ages 6,15,15,25,45 and 72 . The service throughout our stay was also A1, Maureen's team were all amazing especially Mike, the pool man, he was friendly and extremely helpful regarding local information and tips. The property was just as described, very comfortable and very clean, with every kitchen accessory you could imagine even a cool bag with ready to go ice packs! Beds lovely and were changed half way through our stay, cooling towers available if needed, well laid out and built Villa. Swimming pool was fabulous, and Mike kept it clean throughout our stay, keeping it in tip top condition and the patio areas were welcomed to relax in after a swim. The local area had everything you could need, shops, beaches and park within a few minutes walk, beautiful scenery and so clean everywhere. Recycling at the local shop (wasn't publicised but good to recycle for the island). Lanzarote was stunning, so many great places to visit, Papygayo beach (over the hills from the Villa) was beautiful and we all managed the walk there even in the heat, and well worth it. It felt very safe there and the teenagers were able to stroll into Playa Blanca, the locals were all happy and helpful. Fantastic holiday, can't wait to go back again, so refreshing to have NO complaints about a holiday.. Thank you Maureen. Just one thing, there is no internet at the Villa, but it really was a welcome relief, even the teenagers who can't normally live without their devices were fine, as there are pplaces to get wifi and didn't seem to miss it at all. Before we left we found a deal with '3 (three) 'network of £15 for 30 days of internet, text and calls, (you'd be hard pushed to use all the package in 30 days!) I hadn't realised until a few days before the property didn't have internet but the network was easy to connect to and served us well in the Villa/Lanzarote.
“Well equipped wonderful villa”
Villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and well equipped with everything we needed. Would recommend car hire as it's so reasonable on the island. Good supermarket is less than 5 minute walk, but would also recommend Ropers for meat and fish for the BBQ which is about 2 min drive. Papgayo beach is beautiful, about a 5 minute drive from the villa. The walk along the coastal path to Marina Rubicon takes about 20 minutes, where there is a good selection of restaurants and bars with a relaxed atmosphere. The only improvement to the Villa I could suggest would be to provide some cover on the terrace or a good quality large parasol so there is shade available in the heat of the day, especially if dining outside for lunch.
“A Peaceful Haven”
We have just spent 12 days at Villa Citrus and I am now so relaxed I am almost going backwards ! The villa is in a quiet but accessible location. The bus stop is a minute away. (Just to the left of the mini roundabout) and costs 1.35 euro to Playa Blanca or to Marina Rubicon. The Marina is a 20 min walk - just down to the seafront and along to the right - with lovely sea views all the way. A taxi back is approx 3 euro and 3.50 from playa blanca. Very nice restaurants at the Marina but pricier than in town. We did eat in a couple of nights - supermarket just through the mini roundabout on the right or if looking for excellent fresh meats/steaks go to the Roper Supermarket. The villa itself is very clean and tidy and what you see in the pictures is what you get. There is no air con but by using the fans and sleeping with the bedroom windows open (shutters keep the insects out) we found it cool for sleeping. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable although we did find it a little small but then my man is over 6ft and very broad !! We also opted to have the pool heated and I am glad we did, it kept the water at a very comfortable temperature and with the heat reaching 35 degrees some days, it was well used. It is 1.8m deep but even if not a competent swimmer the side is never far away. As taxi fares from the airport are around 45 euro single trip - for two of us it was cheaper to book the Ryanair (or Last Minute.com) minibus which is 18 euro each RETURN - delivered to your door and picked up from there on way home. We did hire a car for a few days(car hire next to the supermarket) and travelled all over the island. I would say 3 days is enough for any sightseeing you may wish to do. Any questions or directions just ask Linda who is great for information and is there for any problems you may have. Lastly, when you arrive at the villa the 'key safe' is inside the shutter doors.
Very nice, neat and tidy home, perfect for walking to the Coastal Path which leads you to the Rubicon Marina. Very quite in residental area, no noise whatsoever. We had a little problem, but that was sorted out with little inconvenience to us by Mike, who keeps an eye on the villa and lives a few doors away, so no problem. We took advantage of the heating for the pool this year, which was well worth it. Great option for some Winter Sun. Little word to the Ladies, you do need a little Jacket for the evenings, I found it a little cold this year once the sun had gone down.
“Beautiful villa in a good location.”
The villa is beautiful, it was very clean and in a lovely quiet location yet close to everything you need such as shops, bars, restaurants. Marina Rubicon was a 20 minute stroll down the coastal path and we enjoyed going there most nights to eat out and shop. Playa Blanca was a 5-10 minute bus journey (the bus stop is a minutes walk from the villa) which ran every 30 minutes and was very cheap. The pool was a lovely size, not too big yet not too small, nice to cool down from the heat and just relax. The table and chairs outside were also lovely and we made the most of using these to eat outside. Mike and Linda who live just a few doors down, were very friendly, welcoming and helpful whilst we stayed and we would recommend this villa to anyone. The only thing this villa would benefit from is air con or more room fans, other than this the villa is absolutely spot on and a credit to Maureen and Richard. Maureen and Richard, the owners of the villa, were very friendly, helpful and organised. They responded to any emails we sent very quickly and were more than happy to help with any questions we had. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and we would love to go back.
“Fantastic villa - highly recommended!”
Fantastic villa in a great location. Seemless booking process with Maureen, who was friendly and helpful. Spotlessly clean, very well appointed accomodation. Very spacious and comfortably furnished, with everything you could want. Lovely (heated) pool and terrace area. Easy to walk to local marina area, where there are numorous restaurants and up-market (but reasonably priced) bars. Playa Blanca itself can be reached via a 30 minute walk if you fancy a change of scenery. Taxis from both the marina and Playa Blanca are about £3 each way and cheaper than the bus if there are more than two of you. Well stocked supermarket about five minutes walk away. Had a great holiday here - very highly recommended.
