IBEROSTAR La Bocayna Village’s attractive cluster of charming bungalows in southern Lanzarote nestles within easy reach of some of the island’s best beaches. The dramatic mountain backdrop and imaginative use of volcanic stone around the resort’s grounds adds to its impact. There’s a real home-from-home atmosphere here, with a welcome injection of hot Spanish sun.
Your roomy bungalow is nicely private, set among landscaped gardens, and with your own sun-dappled private terrace, you can choose to pass lazy days in complete seclusion or venture to the centrepiece of the resort – its delightful free-form swimming pool.
The main restaurant has a flair for great show-cooking buffets and there’s a well-equipped spa with large open-air hydromassage whirlpool you’ll want to get stuck into. IBEROSTAR La Bocayna Village received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
How to Get There
I decided to have a look at the Iberostar Bocayna village resort during my recent stay in Playa Blanca. It was easy to find although I imagine it might be better to hire a car if staying at this complex.
On asking to have a look around the receptionist helpful and went and got the manager, Gianmaria, who insisted on having a coffee with me and then showing me around himself.
In the restaurant, which was buffet style I noticed that the place was being kept clean and tidy by a number of cheerful staff. Cheerful staff always being a good sign of a happy working atmosphere within a holiday resort.
As we looked around after coffee it was clear there was quite a lot of outdoor seating areas, some with quite good views over Playa Blanca and out to sea but I was also impressed by the veranda areas outside the bungalows allowing some degree of private sunbathing and offering a quiet place to read a book as well.
The bungalow I was shown was in the process of being cleaned but it was bigger than I imagined and extremely well supplied with a spacious shower as well as a well equipped kitchen.
Gianmaria explained that people staying at the complex had a wide range of accommodation options available from accommodation only all the way through to all Inclusive.
I came away impressed by what I had seen.
I went with my husband to look around the Iberostar resort, Bocayna Village, during our recent stay at the Lanzarote park hotel.
I love the warmth of greeting that we got from the manager Gianmaria who insisted that we have coffee with him before he showed us around the complex.
It was good to see that this holiday resort is too seeking to improve its green credentials with organ refillable bathroom products, paper straws and other eco friendly changes having recently been implemented.
The restaurant was clean and tidy as were all the public areas that we saw and I was also impressed by the friendly greetings that we got from any staff that we met and the obvious rapport that Gianmaria seems to have with them as well.
The bungalows were bigger than I expected and clearly provide good family accommodation.
The complex is set in a quiet area with
During my recent stay at Lanzarote Park I decided, out of curiosity, to take a look at the other Iberostar resort in Playa Blanca of Bocayna Village.
I loved the quiet and peaceful setting and once again the warmth and friendliness of the staff that I met there.
The manager Gianmaria agreed to show me round personally and after we had had coffee together in the buffet restaurant I was shown around the complex and shown inside one of the bungalows as well.
I was surprised by the size of the accommodation, the privacy each unit had as well as the ample sun terraces and pools.
It is located very close , as Gianamaria pointed out, to a few local shops and supermarkets as well as the award winning Papagayo beaches.
An ideal location for a quiet holiday on which one can look after themselves or take advantage of the options of B&B or HB or even AI in a quieter part of Playa Blanca.
this hotel isnt really a hotel like the other big ones down in the center of playa blanca, its out the way, really quiet, reasonably small.
The rooms are fine, ours had an awesome view with a Jacuzzi .
Due to the size food could be a bit limited depending on your tastes, we didnt have an issue.
The all inc option is fine and easy to get on with, they dont use wrist bands so you dont feel like you are in a hospital!
would visit again
This review is in 2 parts
The accommodation was large, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (3 showers) air conditioning, ceiling fans, a large terrace with sea views, sun beds and of a good overall standard, The staff were also very friendly. On this part I would give it 5/5.
The all inclusive drink option was fairly limited and the quality at times was lacking only a small pool bar was on offer. We are not big drinkers , but this may have been an issue for some.
Now to the food as a vegetarian, an all inclusive has some issues . This was on the whole a poor and difficult experience due to the inadequate and incorrect labelling of food ( a meat lasagne was labelled as vegetarian ) , salads often were also mis labelled as well and contained bacon and or fish etc when they were indicated as suitable. After we spoke to reception things did improve in the evening and we were given a special meal . Although this was a nice touch it would have been better for a lot more care and attention to be paid to different needs of its customers , labelling of all food correctly would go a long way to improve this.
Breakfast was ok with a reasonable selection and fresh orange juice. We gave up on the food except breakfast for last few days and ate out.
Not worth taking the All inclusive option as supermarkets are nearby providing a reasonable selection of food and drinks.
This part is 2/5 at best
