When you leave the airport take the FV-2 road, signed to Morro Jable, and keep following the signs for around 30km, until you reach the roundabout for Gran Tarajal. Turn left at this roundabout and follow the FV-20 road which goes into Gran Tarajal. After travelling 3.5 km, take the left-hand turn on to the Las Playitas road, the FV-512. After 4km you will arrive in Las Playitas, and at the first roundabout turn right, and at the next small roundabout, turn left. The entrance to the hotel is the first on the right.
