I'm thinking of going to Lanzarote on a DIY holiday. I want a resort with good public transport or inexpensive taxi links to the airport and a resort with good land & sea excursions. I've found a nice hotel in Playa Blanca which I'm considering booking but I'm not sure what the transport links to the airport are like since it quite a distance away & do any excursions leave from here since it seems to be a bit away from everything. I don't want to book something blind & end up regretting my decision. I don't know if I'm that keen staying in the capital city.
I would recommend resort Costa Teguise, its family resort, not a nightlife resort like Puerto del Carmen, and its 10/20 minutes from all the main spots on the island.

Public transport are quite "exotic", speaking about time schedule, so don't expect the bus to arrive on time in Lanzarote.
For the airport taxi, cheaper option is to use a shared bus from companies like canaltravel or lastminute travel.
Taxi from airport will cost you approx. 20/25 euros to resort Costa Teguise, and 15/25 to Puerto del Carmen.
Playa Blanca is at the south of the island, its a nice place, but far from everything except the beautiful beaches of Papagayo and the island of Fuerteventura.
Arrecife is not very "nice" city to be full time during your vacations, it was build with nonsense, and its not really beautiful except the beach front & promenade around the luxury Arrecife Gran Hotel.
