Castillo del Mar was a neglected taberna when we took it over, and after working with great local craftsmen & builders for almost five months, we refurbished and transformed it, added a pool, and it was complete to enjoy for holidays. My family and I have shared many wonderful times here and have many treasured memories of Castillo Del Mar and I hope you do too?
Deborah purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Deborah chose Punta Mujeres
Castillo Del Mar is located in one of the few unspoiled fishing villages left on the Island of Lanzarote. If you want to experience the real Lanzarote and the true Canarian way of life, then choosing to stay here offers you just that. A simplistic lifestyle, where young and old come together in the evenings and in the daytime fishing and swimming in the cool Atlantic sea pools are an everyday way of life. The village is virtually unspoiled by tourism and is an ideal escape and somewhere to totally relax. From the local fishing boats to the local farmers who manage to cultivate the dry land and produce traditional Canarian potatoes. The unique sea swimming pools are an ideal way to cool off in the mid day sun as they stretch all along the shore line in the village. You can eat great tapas and drink local wines at (La Piscina) tapas bar by the sea pool and enjoy excellent food at the sea front restaurant 'Sol y Lunas'', especially the fresh fish! Palenki's Restaurant is another unique find, where locals gather and make their own music and evening entertainment, singing traditional Canarian songs. Enjoy staying in a traditional rustic fishing village and explore the rest of the Island at your leisure! If you decide not to hire a car, there is a bus service that runs through the village.
What makes this Villa unique
Punta Mujeres is away from mass tourism, which means the prices are a fraction of other resorts on the Island. You can get a fresh coffee at the mini market for only one euro and a glass of wine at Paenki's Restaurant / tapas bar is only 1.50 euro. All the restaurants in the village offer fresh fish at reasonable prices compared to other resorts, which makes it great value and your holiday money goes a little further! Plenty tourist attractions are close to the village including the beautiful town of Haria 'Valley of Thousand Palms' only a short 5 minute car drive away in the mountains. Offering a great Saturday morning market selling local produce and crafts. Punta Mujeres offers you the unique experience of staying in a traditional Canarian village with all the necessary amenities within walking distance. There are three mini supermarkets all within walking distance. Not to mention all the beautiful walks that you can enjoy while staying in the village. One in particular takes you along the shore line and head land to the 'Jameous Del Agua' a very famous attraction on the Island. Watching the sun glistening on the sea as you sit by the ocean takes your breath away and makes Punta Mujeres a very special unspoiled jewel on the Island of Lanzarote.

Jone’s 2018 holiday
A very stunning and beautiful place to visit, beautiful scenery and one of our most rememberable things will be visiting the volcano caves, they have to be seen to be believed. The villa it’s self I did not want to leave beautiful, homely and well equipped with every thing you and family need we were sad to leave but hey ho back to reality and would love to go back in the near future to stop at Castillo del mar. Thank you very much Deborah for giving us this opportunity to stay and we will most definitely be contacting you again in the near future x
Thank you Joe for your review. I'm delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay so much. Come back and stay again!
Clean and quiet
We had a very relaxing family holiday
We hired a car (recommended) as so much to see and is so easy to get around the island
Would come again thank you Deborah for the excellent communication and lovely villa/apartment
We stayed in the 3 bed apartment for 7 weeks and throughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is exactly as the pictures show, 1 bedroom with a king size bed and an additional futon, another bedroom with a double bed and the third bedroom with 2 single beds, all three bedrooms are en suite.
There is a bath and shower in the larger master bedroom.
The dinning area seats 6 persons, there is also a table outside which seats 4
You can catch the morning sun at at the front of the property as well as in the rear of the property.
The pool is lovely to cool of in the heat, and there is a outdoor cold shower. The pool is professionally cleaned of a Wednesday.
The kitchen is fully equipped for home cooking including a full cooker as well as a microwave. The washing machine is a must for long stays. And the tall fridge freezer is ideal for storing food items nice and cool.
The village of Punta Murejes is quiet and relaxing with lots of lovely walks around the area. The freshly filled sea pools are fun to use, and the Sandy and pebble beach at Arrieta is ideal for the children as it’s quite wide and most of the time the water is gentle.
The communication with Deborah was good and if we had any questions she quickly responded to our emails. The housekeeper Tina seems to be on-site most days.
This was our second visit to the property and will definitely return again.
Thank you for your review Denise. We really do appreciate how much you enjoyed your stay and how much you embraced your environment and the local people. I will pass on your praise to Tina and the team who work really hard to keep the place beautiful and clean for our guests. We would love to welcome you and Jeff back again in the future.
Serene and idyllic setting and superb villa
We arrived out of season, the weather was perfect for us and the villa met all of our expectations. The location was quiet and peaceful but at the same time accessible to a wide range of facilities and other resorts if you want to visit them. The villa was really well appointed, lovely furnishings and comfortable in every way. A lovely pool complemented the villa, hours were spent by the pool with a good book. Definitely as the brochure describes it and definitely recommend it to family and friends.
Thank you for your review and recommendation. Good to hear you enjoyed the villa and village. Come back again!
Amazing family holiday
Very clean well presented Villa. We had a fantastic week staying here. Friendly locals. We recommend hiring a car as there are many places worth a visit. Visiting the live volcano a must, it was less magical day out. We went with twin one year olds & Deborah accommodated us with two cots & high chairs. Thank you Deborah for letting us have an amazing holiday.
Delighted all the family had a great holiday and thank you for your review and choosing to stay with us! Come back again!
Home from home - what more can you ask for?
The apartment is situated in a quiet village with easy access from the airport and room for parking. It was clean, spacious and extremely comfortable allowing me to relax fully during my stay. The pool with the spacious terrace was an added bonus. Will definitely be returning next year. Thank you
Thank you for your review Darryl and I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay and appreciated how hard Tina and her team work keeping the apartment immaculate for guests! Looking forward to you returning next year. Muchas Gracias
Punta Mujeres is one of the few unspoilt traditional fishing villages left on the Island of Lanzarote. The village offers you a change to be away from mass tourism and the madding crowds and situated next to the lovely village of Arrieta, in the district of Haria. Although a quiet village, restaurants, a tapas bar by the sea and three mini supermarkets are all within walking distance. The tranquil setting and pace of life will allow you to totally unwind and get away from it all.
There are several good restaurants in the village, 'Lunas y Sol' fresh fish restaurant right by the sea (daytime only), Palinki's traditional restaurant / tapas bar, (great for steaks), El Lago, fish restaurant, en route to Arrieta and a tapas bar in the centre of the village by the sea. (A must visit to experience the ambience of the locals and sample their homemade tapas and wines) As well as mini supermarkets, cafes and a delightful pizza parlour. The famous Jameous Del Agua is close to the village and it's possible to walk to it along the head land. Saturday morning markets are very popular in the delightful town of Haria which is a short drive away in the hills. Sample local organic produce and crafts as well as traditional music.
Natural sea swimming pools, unique to Punta Mujeres, run along the shore line throughout the village (safe for children) and very therapeutic. The nearest long sandy beach is around 2klm in the village of Arrieta with a tapas bar right on the beach and play areas for the children. The beautiful white sands blown over from the Sahara, have formed beautiful beaches situated near to the village of Orzola, (around a 10 minute drive north from the property). The hidden lagoon is among them, and if you want to experience total tranquillity, well worth a visit. A lava fall out formed a safe lagoon with warm still waters, ideal for snorkelling.
Visit the local Aloe Vera houses in Punta Mujeres, where you can sample and purchase the unique properties of the plant that grow on the Island.
Walkers & Cycle Paradise: This part of the Island is very popular for walkers and cyclists.
For the more adventurous, take a walk up in the hills to Haria then drop down to the west side of the Island to Famara with it's long stretches of beautiful sandy beaches with breath taking views.
One of the most popular tourist attractions, 'The Mirador Del Rio', is in the district of Haria, offering stunning views of the Island of La Graciosa. Or try a visit to the amazing Cactus Gardens in the village of Mala, again a short drive away from Punta Mujeres. Offering thousands of species of the most amazing flowering cactus.
Golf details: The nearest golf course is situated in Costa Teguise, around 15 minute drive away. A beautiful 18 hole course with immaculate greens, buggies available and a friendly restaurant.
There is plenty to see or just simply chill & enjoy the Canarian Sunshine.
