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 Haría
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.

Great apartment for couples or groups.
Very clean, well equipped house in quiet town on ne coast. In November pool was too cold to use but is very clean and not particularly overlooked.
Only improvement would be new towels as threadbare.
Main bedroom bed was very comfortable 👍
Thanks for a great stay.
Thank you for review Richard. I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay and found the place clean and comfortable. Pity you didn't mention the towels to me while you were there, I would have requested my house-keeper to change them for you. Although I feel the phrase "threadbare" is an exaggeration. I always ask guests "is there anything I can assist you with while you are staying with us", but you never mentioned anything? All towels have now been checked and any deemed unsuitsble have been replaced.
We were met by the owner, Deborah. She could not have done more to make us welcome and make sure that we had everything we needed.
The villa is super, spacious, clean and very well decorated and furnished. ........the pool is a delight!
The local area is beautiful. There are many things to do and see. Markets, museums, caves and some stunning scenery!
We arrived at the end of a fiesta which was great fun and included live music. Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was great.
There are many very good restaurants and bars in the village serving delicious food and a shop selling all the basics.
We loved our week and we will return!
It was a pleasure to meet you both and I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay in the villa apartment and the local village life! The Music festival is always good fun at this time of year. Come back and stay with us again!
Great holiday in Punta Mujeres Lanzarote
The apartment/villa was like a home from home, quiet and in a convenient location. Very clean, well put together with some lovely finishing touches like bathrobes and a good range of inflatables. The private pool was a real bonus - and again very clean. The weeks rental was good value and the owner a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. Punta Mujeres is a lovely, unspoilt Canarian fishing village mostly frequented by Spanish families. We’d highly recommend both the apartment/villa and the area - good for visiting the Cesar Manrique attractions, nearby beaches and some great authentic food/atmosphere in local bars like La Piscina.
Delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your review. We hope to welcome you back again in the future!
Lovely villa with all you need for a great holiday.
Pretty villa in a lovely Spanish village unspoiled by tourism. Deborah catered for all our baby and toddler requirements even down to pool and beach toys. Questions were answered promptly and nothing was too much trouble. A memorable three generation holiday for us - thank you.
Thank you for your review and can I say what a pleasure it was to have you all stay at the villa apartment. Shame the sun was a little shy for you, but I'm delighted you all enjoyed your holiday and made lots of memories! Come back again anytime! Cheers, Deborah
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!

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
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.
