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
Just returned from our 2nd year in a row at this little gem of a holiday village and it did not disappoint again. From check-in you're met with smiling happy staff who cannot do enough for you.
The accommodation is fantastic and clean and has everything you require to make your stay comfortable.
The food was adequate with plenty of choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner, although sometimes could be repetitive.
If you are looking for a party resort with plenty of nightime entertainment then this is not the resort for you. There is entertainment on a Friday night with musicians in the bar area but that is it although this suited us fine as it was such a relaxing holiday again.
The pool area is great with plenty of sun loungers for everyone and another great touch were the cocktails supplied by the barman to the pool area everyday.
There are a couple of supermarkets within a 5min walk also a few bars and cafes close-by. About a 20min walk away is the Rubicon Marina and this can be reached by a beautiful coastal path with views of Papagayo beach, Fuertaventura and the island of Los Lobos, 20mins further on from the marina is Playa Blanca.
From the management, reception staff, waiters and cleaners - the staff in La Bocayna make your stay so memorable for all the right reasons.
We stayed for 2 weeks in August.
Previously we've always done holiday villages and other types of 'family' or 'activity' type holidays.
We were a little concerned about reviews of this hotel and it's location being 'quiet'.
It is quiet... But it's great!
We absolutely loved it.
The staff are amazing - I can't name them all, I simply don't know their names.
But... Castillo ('sandwich man'): our daughter loved him! Really warmed to him.
He made her a sandwich on day 2!!
Javier: doesn't 'appear' as a typical bar man - but he made a cracking Pina colada.
David was great, as was a guy who appeared to be a more senior (from the restaurant), feel really bad that I never got him name; fantastic.
Cleaners, reception, bar, restaurant - all of them.
WiFi sadly is pretty hit and miss. Ok-ish in the rooms... Sometimes!
Water on arrival would be a nice touch, especially for late arrivals - we arrived 10.30pm+ - by the time we got into the room the bar/restaurant were shut - and we were really thirsty. Luckily reception found a 5 litre bottle that they gave us - I'd have paid 20 euros for water at that point!
The food was amazing.
Breakfast is buffet style - the usual options you would expect.
Lunch the same - as you would expect.
Evening meal is a little different.
You have a buffet starter, but a la carte main (from a menu).
You can easily fill up on the buffet food without struggling, but I'd REALLY recommend the a la carte!! It was fantastic.
Most of the time you have to sign for stuff, and give your room number. Just ask the staff, they'll explain what is/isn't all inclusive - speak with your kids - make sure they know what is all in, and what's not. Assuming you are all inclusive.
There are a couple of supermarkets 10 mins walk away. The one you can see from the hotel also has other shops near it.
The rooms (bungalows) are amazing too.
Amenities, size, terrace, privacy, etc.
Decor - well, I'm sure a lick of paint won't hurt and some general DIY, but they're not bad at all.
The beach over the horizon is... A beach! Beaches aren't for us. But it's a nice walk (if you like sweating, heat, thirst and dust!!!).
We did the Texas Rancho (basically a zoo with a waterpark), and the aqualava waterpark trips.
I'm sure there is plenty that I've missed off this review, but unless you like it to be really busy and struggling for sunbeds, then this places won't disappoint you.
we had a Great 2 weeks holiday. The staff were really lovely especially Lydia in the restaurant . Reception staff were great, any small problems we had were sorted out straight away. 2 lovely beaches just a short walk and shops. Bungalow was very nice and cleaned daily with fresh towels. The food in the restaurant was so nice, different food everyday and a big choice to cater for everyone.. Pool area was nice and sometimes the staff came round with sandwiches or drinks. The jacuzzi was a lot bigger than the photos show. The only thing which we thought it lacked was that there is no evening entertainment apart from the bar music. We would return to this resort.
