I have just received an email from Yann and Samira to tell me that they will be re opening La Jardin Tropical on Tuesday the 1st August 2017. Good news, now at least we have two out of the three restaurants in Charco del Palo open again. No news at the moment about the Cueva Paloma, will keep you posted.
Over the past few weeks renovations have been taking place at Casita's Luz (ref T on my map) They are now ready to rent again and I am pleased to tell you that you can book these tastefully decorated apartments with Nudelanza. Baths have been removed and walk in showers created, they have new 180cm beds, new wardrobes, lounge furniture, coffee tables, dining tables the works. The walls have not been forgotten, there are some lovely pictures and large framed mirrors. Wifi is available for free and BBC, ITV television for those who need it!
See below for a few sample photographs, more information and photographs to come later this week. Prices from 75€ a night
I have now created a page for these apartments and I have a few more photographs.

I just popped round to our local supermarket here in Charco del Palo and noticed that they are still on reduced hours for JULY. I can totally understand why they are doing this, Charco del Palo is quieter during July and August so reducing the hours makes sense. ( Note sure at this stage what hours will be for August, but I will keep you posted). At least we still have a supermarket serving us fresh bread every day along with all the normal grocery items plus magazines, daily papers and of course a great selection of wine, spirits and beer, and thats a good thing. As you can see from the poster opposite the opening hours are
Monday to Saturday from 08.30 till 15.00 and
Sunday 09.00 till 14.00
Please support our village shop.
Most Mondays and Thursdays the Multicines Atlantida in Arrecife shows an up to date English speaking movie. So last night we went mob handed, seven in all to see La Momia (The Mummy) staring Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. But lets start at the beginning. We left Charco del Palo at about 5.30pm and headed into Arrecife. Our favorite stopping off point for a small snack and a little drink is a restaurant in San Gines called Divina Italia. This great little restaurant opens at 4.30pm and serves really nice pizza's until 7pm. When the chef comes on shift at 7pm the full menu is available. Now baring in mind that you will be out of the cinema by 9.30 you could always eat after the movie. San Gines is buzzing at this time of night, the bars and restaurants are all full and there is a great atmosphere. But we stopped off for pizza and a drink before moving on to the cinema. The cost for a normal ticket is 6€ and for a resident and pensionista as Alan and I are the cost is only 5.20€, a bargain. So we are in the theatre, the trailers have all played (15mins) and the movie starts, but it is in Spanish ! we are about 10mins in when someone shouts, its ok they are changing the movie to English, to which there was laughter and clapping. But we had to sit through all the trailers again, boring....... La Momia was ok, it was a bit of a romp along movie, I screamed out on at least two occasions, the obvious one was when someone was leaning over La Momia and you know she is going to wake up and grab him but I still nearly leapt into Gareths lap with a scream. All good fun.
Lanzarote Information gives up to date information every week as to what is playing and where.
Here's some photo's from last night San Juan party at Reiner's Pub. A most enjoyable evening was had by all.
