Tucked behind one of Lanzarote's typically green front doors is an oasis of calm and tranquility, where all you want to do is settle down on one of the loungers and contemplate the views over to Fuerteventura and the Isla de Lobos. Named after the diplomat (embajador) who bought the property to rent rooms to the island's first tourists, this small hotel oozes colonial charm and style with parquet, cane furniture and Moroccan details in the tiles and lamps. It's
a world apart from the noisy resort hotels. Rooms are intimate and all have ocean views. A "secret" door takes you to the seaside promenade, from which you can easily reach the bustle of Playa Blanca.
