    Default Abandoned Hotel, Lanzarote


    THE ABANDONED HOTEL, LANZOROTIE.

    I thought id get my holiday urbex photo`s up, and this was a good find...this hotel was constructed in the 80s and worked stopped due to the planners getting it wrong....the rough sea did not make it a good place....and everyone chose to build a the nearby playa "Blanca" this place is accessed by a 4 mile dirt track and believe it or not someone actually lives here...........a breathtaking place !and they had even dug the pool out.


    what the hell is that !


    huge !


    where do i check in...






    anyone home ?? where are the stairs ?




    a nice relaxing bath.....










    ohhh very 80s





    hope you all enjoyed that.....more to come soon !!

    Good find and pics, Steve. That's a very strange place, indeed, in the middle of nowhere! Nice one. :D

    It reminds me of some of the abandoned hotels in Northern Cyprus.

    The abandoned hotel
    We follow a rough, winding track into the Rubicon desert, park when it gets too bad to drive any further, and walk towards a shell of a building on the horizon. The desert floor is spongy underfoot and littered with rocks, space plants, desert shrubs. The building looks two-dimensional from a distance but up close we see that it is an abandoned hotel complex, half built. We can see how the capsule-like rooms would have looked, there is a pile of never-plumbed-in bathtubs disintegrating outside. Itís astonishing, like a little piece of Detroit transplanted onto a volcanic island. More astonishing is the fact that some of the rooms have been colonised by people and turned into a kind of shanty town. There are green doors, windows, and inside I see a table, neatly set with a bowl and an oilcloth, a home. Poor people live here, how can it be?

    The hotel overlooks a rocky coast. The rocks nearby have been worn away by the sea and they look like dinosaur bones or the foundations of a building. We perch and watch the waves crash, ultramarine and pure foaming white, huge and awesome.
