As you'd expect from Rough Guides, this book is very thorough, and full of brilliant advice.

We booked our holiday to Lanzarote with accommodation included but wanted to explore the island on our own once we were there. Lanzarote Directions was really, really useful! Enjoyable and easy to read, too. There's so much more to Lanzarote than the obvious places that the standard tours take you to, and this book helped us find all sorts of interesting things.

Next time we'll stay at one of the villas recommended in the book - some of them sound like real finds - and do everything independently.

The Rough Guide to Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Does what it says. A useful addition to your planners and a useable size for taking with you on your trips. Had lots of interesting pieces essential for touring around the islands. A bit week on traffic laws but enough information to keep you on the right track and avoid missing some of the islands high lights.

Pointless purchase - I bought this guide when I was planning a trip to Fuerte - Although it references Fuerte in the title do not be mislead as its a guide book for Lanzarote with extremely minimal info about Fuerte - I also bought the AA spiral guide to Fuerte and I would recommend it

Having bought Rough Guides before, and been very happy with them, I was really disappointed with the Lanzarote and Fuerteventura guide. The guide was mainly about Lanzarote, and as I was going to Fuerteventura the few pages at the end (148-161)about Fuerteventura were not enough. The only positive result was that I had to find things out for myself from the locals, which was a challenge (my Spanish is not very good) but very interesting!

We chose this Lanzarote guidebook as it seemed much fresher than the others (we already know the island a bit). We're SO GLAD we did - it took us to loads of amazing places we'd never have found by ourselves, including some very pretty villages and some really good restaurants and wineries. The chapter on Fuerteventura was useful too, as we spent a couple of days over there.

We'd recommend this book to anyone. It opened our eyes to a whole new side of Lanzarote and we enjoyed our trip so much we're going to book three weeks next time!

A detailed and helpful book for a short break and also includes some useful maps. Worthy of the money and one of only a few that covers Lanzarote and Fuertaventura without covering all of the canary islands, useful if you are visiting just one and not all of them.

Plenty of information and suggestions. A little frustrating to have Lanzarote and Fuerteventura mixed together - you don't always notice immediately that the highlighted place that's caught your interest is on the wrong island!

This book is useless if you are going to Fuerteventura, it has only a few photographs and about 6 pages (mostly promoting accomodation and restaurants) about Corraleo. I'm sending it back for a refund.

Took this book on our second visit to Lanzarote - and wished we'd had it first time round! It was very helpful and much more informative than the guide we used before.

Great restaurant info. We discovered some really nice new spots.

The Fuerteventura chapter gave us just enough in the way of ideas for us to plan a quick side trip over there. We had fun but now understand why there's only the one Fuerte chapter in the book - Lanza is just SO much nicer (sorry Fuerte fans!!!)

Hardly any information about Fuertaventura which is what I wanted. I paid about £14.99 and discovered it sold for about £6.99. When I queried it the company said it had been out of print. A waste of money for me.
