Calle Lanzarote

Friendliness on Lanzarote

Are the residents of Lanzarote “grumpy?”  I can’t say that would be my experience, and yet the Chamber of Commerce has launched a “friendliness campaign” to improve the image of the island!

If I had to think of places where the people in restaurants and hotels were unfriendly to their guests, then Lanzarote would probably not have featured very highly (although I can think of some good examples in Germany and the UK).  In fact, my only real complaint about restaurants on Lanzarote would be that they charge for rolls and butter without asking and sometimes feign a lack of English when there is a problem with the bill.

Perhaps they are worried about the falling numbers of visitors to the island this year.  But I would have thought that that had more to do with the World economy than with the attitude of the taxi drivers.

As far as the restaurants are concerned, investing in decent translations of the menus might be a better investment!
