About Penelope Roberts
The villa is situated in an absolutely unbelievable spot with spectacular views which are some of the best on the Island.
Penelope Roberts purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Penelope Roberts chose Conil
The area in and around Conil is the epitome of Lanzarote being on the edge of the National Park and moments from the wine growing area of La Geria. The views from this area are some of the best on the island.
What makes this Villa unique
Total tranquility, peaceful, quiet and residential away from the hussle and bussle of the tourist areas.

A tired property
Initial appearances can be disceptive, we had viewed this villa from the outside only before booking and it looked great, the views are absolutely fantastic but once inside the euphoria started to dwindle. The villa is in need of an overhaul and my reasons for stating this are
a The outside sun lounging equipment is very brittle and there are only 5 sunbeds two of which are broken ( so how you manage with more than 3 occupants?) there are only two mattresses for the beds which are very old and dirty, we went out and bought our own, there are no pool towels provided although when we enquired they did provide three. The outside chairs are basic, well worn plastic with cracks around the tops and no cushions.
b The villa was very dusty and the kitchen cleanliness left a lot to be desired under the units and on top of fridge was greasy. The coffee table in the lounge is badly marked.
c There was a leak in the ensuite bathroom which we reported but nothing happened
d The white towels provided were well worn and one bath towel had a tear which became longer with use
e The glasses were all oddments
f Normally for a ten night stay the bedding and towels are changed twice but it only happened once
g Internet reception is very poor and the TV has very limited access no BBC or ITV - just a spanish channel with english programmes - we had to contact the management to get that
So all in all I would rate this villa as 3 star only and not up to the standard we had previously been used to on the island and it was more expensive than we had previously paid
I would add that we know the island well and have been holidaying on Lanzarote for the last 20 years and this is the worst villa we have had. We always stay in remoter locations as we are just looking for a comfortable quiet 10 days.
Very upsetting to receive such a review of el olivo.
Despite the worst winter on record with freezing cold temperatures and lashing rain our management once contacted did everything they could to make the guests comfortable.
The sunchairs are only just over a year old and covers are integral therefore we do not understand why cushions were purchased.
The kitchen equipment is regularly checked and replaced if needed and the villa is cleaned thoroughly after each guest. The internet connection has been checked and is working - However, speeds are not up to the same standard as the UK. Lanzarote is in the middle of the Atlantic and therefore still experiencing fluctuations in signal. The TV package IS a full sky package and when the management were contacted the problem was resolved.
All our bedding and towels are regularly checked and replaced where necessary as is the kitchen equipment.
If you have any queries regarding this review please do contact the owners.
April 2018 The villa has been completely replastered and redecorated inside
Very spacious and well equipped modern villa in a stunning setting.
Stayed here for 10 days at this very tranquil villa, if you want a relaxing holiday this is the place to go, facilities are excellent, location is stunning but a car is essential to get around not much happpening in the village, The next village of Tias has everything you need. Pool was nice and heated. Weather was fantastic! Would recommmend this villa for a stay in Lanzarote.
It was a pleasure to hear you enjoyed El Olivo and thank you for your lovely review. We do hope you return
El Olivo is a perfect base to enjoy Lanzarote.
It really has been a lovely vacation. We have had a nice weather, with fantastic temperatures and a reasonable wind behavior to be Lanzarote.
The views from El Olivo are magnificent and, despite the haze (calima), we have been able to enjoy Isla de Lobos and Fuerteventura.
The house is spacious, neat and equipped with all the necessary amenities. The heated pool is perfect.
In summary, El Olivo is a perfect base to enjoy Lanzarote.
During the cold and wet of winter, we will remember El Olivo many times.
Thank you for having the opportunity to enjoy your lovely home in Lanzarote. We will not forget it.
Thank you Eugenio. It's so rewarding to receive such a great review. Looking forward to your return
Fabulous villa with an outstanding view
The villa is set perfectly high in the mountain with stunning views. The villa is beautiful inside and is perfect for those who wish to relax in luxury. The pool i
Thank you for the lovely review. It's very rewarding to know that our guests loved el olivo and look forward to them visiting us again
Delightful 9 night stay within a tranquil location
If your looking for a location within a tranquil setting away from busy tourist areas but within a relatively short distance to neighbouring tourist locations, then this is it. Although our party only consisted of 3 people, this villa would easily accommodate 6-8 people. It offers a host of appliances and there wasn't a utensil we required which could not be found. Set within a residential Spanish area, there is a local store a 15 minute walk away which provides most basic grocery requirements and a local tapas bar. Great for families wishing to self cater.
The villa is large, clean and comfortable. As it was quite windy during our stay we were not unfortunately able to use the BBQ available, but there is a nice patio area for BBQ to be held.
Ideal for those wishing a peaceful location with spectacular views of the mountains from the upper terrace.
It is a always a joy to receive such a lovely review and to see that el olivo gives pleasure to our guests. On this occasion the guests contacted me on their first day to say how happy they were which was really rewarding. We do intend to build a sheltered BBQ on the terrace to enable use whatever the weather.
Large, modern villa with fantastic views
We booked the villa for our honeymoon and it exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do the property justice, its extremely spacious and could easily accommodate 8 adults. There are large terrace areas on both floors to take in mountain and sea views. We hired a car and were in the centre of Puerto del Carmen within 15 minutes. The property was clean and fresh towels and bedding were provided for our stay. There is a DVD player so we would recommend you take some with you as there are only two TV channels on the freeview in English, one of which is the Disney Channel. There is a small supermarket in Conil which stocks essentials but its opening hours are limited, there are however plenty of supermarkets within a ten minute drive. Restaurants are not in short supply, we used TripAdvisor as a guide and we had some fantastic meals in Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and El Golfo.
El olivo is a really special place for us and receiving such a lovely testimonial is very heartfelt to us. We love to share it with others.
take the motorway from Arrecife airport and onto the LZ2. Follow signs for Yaiza. Take the exit for Conil and turn right up the hill to end of road which is a T Junction. Turn left and go straight through traffic calming lights leaving the church on your left. Continue up the hill and the 5th turning on the right is our street. El olivo is situated at the end of the road. Local cuisine and tapas bars in Tias. International cuisine and local cuisine in Puerto del Carmen. The Timanfaya National Park is very close. The villa backs onto the La Geria wine region and is close to Tequise with its wonderful Sunday market, and the surfing beach at Famara.
