As the title suggests, I’ve recently returned from a week in Costa Teguise and I thought it would be nice to write a little post about the trip.
My boyfriend and I booked the trip through Jet2 Holidays; the great thing about booking through Jet2 is that not only can you book your flights and accommodation at the same time, they also provide transfer to and from the airport free of charge. Jet2 always have various promotions running, so it’s always worth having a look to see if you can get a good deal!
I won’t bore you with the booking details anymore, let’s get on to the holiday itself.
Our flight didn’t leave until 3:30pm as the little boarding pass doodle I’ve attempted above suggests. I’ve been to Lanzarote before, but I completely forgot how long the flight takes! By the time we checked into our resort in Costa Teguise, it was almost 10 o’clock so we didn’t get the chance to see much on our first night.
If you’re ever considering a trip to Lanzarote (which I hope you will after this post!) I’d definitely recommend the Sands Beach Resort. Not only was it right on the beach, it was also a very short walk to loads of restaurants! The resort has a large number of apartments which are set around 7 swimming pools and even a manmade beach lagoon. Our apartment faced onto the lagoon and we were so lucky with the view from our balcony.
The weather was great the whole time we were there, although if I’m being honest I did spend most of my time in the pool to prevent my pale Scottish body from overheating. I managed to not get too sunburnt which is definitely an achievement for me. Our days were pretty much always spent by the pool with a beer and then going out for dinner at night. Although it wasn’t an eventful holiday, I loved every second off it and really appreciated the time to relax and destress.
The food we had while we were away was incredible. I’m a big tapas lover so I was in heaven with the vast amount of choice we had. There was one restaurant in particular which we returned to several times throughout the week. I’ll include a picture of our tapas from one evening there, although I’m not sure the picture does the food justice. All of the tapas dishes were a great price, generally between 3 and 4 euros, which was much less than the other tapas restaurants in the town. If you’re ever in Costa Teguise, definitely give Alessio a visit! Not only is the food great, the service is too.
I don’t want to ramble on forever, so I think I’ll leave you with a few more pictures. Costa Teguise really is a beautiful town and I did my best to capture that.
Before I go, I’ve realised that some of you may not know what I look like if you’re new around here. These two pictures are definitely my personal favourites from the holiday. I rarely like pictures of myself, but Lewis did a good job of making me feel comfortable and relaxed (5 boyfriend points to him). I love wearing playsuits as I find them so comfortable and I think this one is really flattering too. When I spotted it in Primark, I instantly fell in love with the bright yellow fabric and flower details. I’ll definitely be wearing it next summer too!
Hope you guys enjoyed my first proper post and thank you so much for all the support so far!
