The master bedroom, lounge and dining room all open onto the patio via double doors.
For anyone with larger families, we have nearby villas for two family holidays. Please ask and we can let you know all the details.
Car hire is not essential but we would say it is advisable. It makes shopping easy, especially as you have to buy drinking water, which is heavy to carry. It also adds flexibility to your holiday. There is so much to see and do, just a short journey away. We have been visiting Playa Blanca since 1988, and have always hired a car. The journey is easy. We can organise car hire for you and payment is on arrival at the airport. Please ask on booking.
Local Facilities: There are many excellent restaurants in the village, many with sea views. Alternatively it is worth a trip out into the villages to experience some of the restaurants used by the locals. These are very friendly and offer excellent food at very low prices.
All of the hotels in Playa Blanca welcome non residents to use their sports facilities and bars, and visitors will be charged the same rate as the residents. It is worth strolling around some of the hotels especially the Princess Yaiza (at the back of Dorada Beach) and the Volcan Hotel, behind the new Marina. They are extremely impressive 5 star hotels both inside and around the pools and grounds.
There are many excellent supermarkets some with resident butchers. There are also cash and carrys at Playa Honda close to the airport.
There are several dive centers on the island, the one thought to be the best, offering on site changing rooms, is at nearby Puerto Calero.
Bicycle Hire is available in the village centre.
There is a new Water Park which is only 15 minutes away from the villa.
Night Life: There are several bars which now feature live music, but in most people's opinion the Irish Anvil Bar is the best and features the amazing guitar skills of Gary three nights a week. This is in Punta Limones by the Port.
Upstairs from this is Legends Karaoke Bar, a small and friendly Karaoke bar. This is open until 2 am 6 days a week, and if you want further fun there is Roof-tops, upstairs again from Legends and it is open till 4 am. Also the nearby Papagayo centre has several bars with Karaoke or live music.
For sports fans many bars screen live matches, probable the best is Popeye's (on the same level as legends), who can show 4 matches at once on his 20 + screens. Mollys bar (almost on the beach) in the Papagayo Centre also shows Sky football and international rugby enabling you to pop off the beach temporarily to keep tabs on your team. This bar also features live music at night.
