SEO Services

 

There are altogether too many reasons for choosing to holiday on the sunshine island of Lanzarote in the coming year. As the second largest of the Canaries the island offers a year round raft of events and festivals and entertainment for visitors to enjoy and more importantly also locals to make an enjoyable time out of their annual leisure time.

There are plenty of good and affordable accommodation options available on the island too. With a little research it is possible to get a good cheap deal on local hotels and apartments. The holiday visitor who is keen to try something different and who loves history and culture will find plenty of that on the island.

There are plenty of local fiestas and festivals to enjoy and much to see and do.

Dearly held for hundreds of years the Canarian Festival is a music festival attracting stars like Peter Gabriel, Diana Krall, Alex Chinchilla and the Germs. The 5 day event is held in the Jardines Sacred Cavern and is a must see if you are interested in Canarian history and culture.

For another more traditional festival more suitable for families with children, the Lanzarote International Horse trials takes place in the Fort San Pedro and is a prestigious event held in the heart of the capital. International competition and riding is excellent and the festival is widely tipped as being the highlight of the year in the Canarian equitour.

The main tourist attractions on the island are:

The beaches of Puerto del Rosario, Playa de Anaga, Blanca National Nature Reserve, and Miraflores Boulders National Park

The historic city of Arrecife

Puerto del Rosario National Park

Brilliant caves at Collection of the White Phases

The Gran Anker or Anker House, also known as the ‘White Castle’, at the Anker Hotel in Puerto del Rosario

Cenotes of El Anjua, Cerroango and Huelga Caves

IN legends it was a magical forest inhabited by the good fairy witch doctor ruah and her reputed black dog in search of the Holy Grail.

More likely it was a salubrious summer that brought the rain and fairytale winds to the island and a renewed sense of promise and inspiration.

To the new settlers the rain and fog outlet at Culebra, just west of the capital. Many a sailor has been gone before our weary sailboats reached the silent isle, and many a traveler hoping for a respite has been disappointed. Much has been written about the disappointed travelers and their goats, chagrin and all, but is it? After listening to the great majority opinion that the weather is ‘perfect’ and the beaches are ‘great’ and the people are ‘ Wonderful’ many have come to regret it.

Puerto del Rosario is the most southerly point of Cuba and a good starting point for tours along the north coast. It is the most developed area of the island and all the tourist areas are well organized and offer good value. If you like to eat out a lot it is probably best to go a little north of the city to sample the great restaurants along the way.

For those interested in exploration, renting vehicles there are a couple of large car hire companies operating in the major cities (which I found through Google searching and the help of Orlando SEO, or endless island hopping can be undertaken with a reputable travel agent or attempting to do everything on foot.

 

The Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan

The Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan

 

Manalapan is more than just the setting for the William Hurt/Kathleen Turner classic Body Heat. It is also the former residence of (in 1992) boxing promoter Don King, as well as New Age music megastar Yanni! With credentials like these, I challenge anyone to resist the lure of Manalapan.

Admittedly, there isn’t all that much to Manalapan. The population of the town is just over 350 people, but its location in Palm Beach county makes it close to a lot of exciting South Florida action. On top of that, Manalapan is also the site of a Ritz-Carlton Resort – a resort that attracts people of all stripes, and has retained its Mobil 5-star and AAA 5-diamond ratings for quite an impressive amount of time.

The Ritz-Carlton Manalapan has exquisite interiors, decorated in an opulently baroque style. Ornate chandeliers shine onto rich wood furnishings, definitely giving the impression of the palace of a bygone era. The rooms and suites are all fantastic, but I think the best part about the resort is, it’s entirely empty – no noisy neighbors, no congested roadways, and no strange sounds (at least, to me). lap around luxuriously in complementary rose petals and antique mantles.

The Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan has an astonishing number of amenities to partake in – cable TV, a/c, gyms, swimming pools, jacuzzis, dressing rooms, even an outdoor hot tub with a purple parrotlet singing. Fine dining is available 24-7, but I think the best food is actually outside (it’s a little pay to park and walk around). etrains, riding around on the town’s vintage cars, and checking out the surf spots every afternoon ( oh, the fun times) are slightly more expensive, but it is definitely worth a visit for those reasons. The rates are about double (you can get four meals a day at the resort for half of what you would pay at a comparable resort anywhere else in the world) and even then, there are still significant savings.

The reason that I’m rating the Ritz-Carlton isn’t because of its luxury, but rather because of its location. The Ritz-Carlton is in the perfect location, not far from Disney World (just a short monorail ride away), Universal Studios and all the other theme parks. A trip to the Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan is well worth it.

Upon arriving, you’ll be greeted by reception staff (known as reservation specialists) who can guide you about the resort and what you can do while you’re staying there. The resort has a very touristic focus, so you will see many (from very few to all of a grand) attractions anywhere within ten blocks of the resort. A nice walk around the complex is obviously a must, but if you’re bored, do the nightly tours, specially the Grand Canal flashlight tour that takes about 40 minutes. Even if you have no desire to venture anywhere else, it is highly recommended.

The overly-designed conference hall needs to be worked upon, lots of mirrors and other odds and ends of hotel business could do a lot better here if they were not all fighting for attention with flashy banners and incentives. You get what you pay for, but not necessarily what you pay for. Consistency has its price, so be sure to discuss your needs and those of other members of your conference when choosing your conference venue.

I expect that the chiefs of our organization will want to conduct business in the traditional conference venues, but they will be much more comfortable when they can sit comfortably side-by-side in a big banquet hall or mall withanage where all the comings and goings are in complete safety. If nothing else it’s a whole lot of fun to escape our muggy conference centres for a day or two.

It is good to have a mid-size venue that offers conference and meeting services.

Best wishes for a great trip and a greener tomorrow!
