Playa de Arlow’s Nature Reserve now open to the public!

You may think that the Playa de Arlow is all about having fun.  Well, it is, obviously.  But we are also very proud of our best kept secret –

Playa de Arlow’s Wildlife and Nature Reserve

Below are some recent snaps taken of the wildlife that can be found in the reserve, if you are very patient and very quiet

If you are VERY lucky, you will see some of the rare insect species that are to be found here. I wasn’t, so here is a bee.

Spotted this morning, a frequent visitor to the Playa, a lesser spotted Essex parrot. Sometimes known as ‘sparrows’, these little visitors are quite bold and have even been known to attack humans when hungry.

Here we have a pair of Albanian Eagles who must have just dropped in for a snack. We rarely see anything other than sparrows and pigeons so you can imagine our excitement when we spotted these!

Finally, here is a very rare glimpse of a lion. You may have heard about him recently in the news. We are very happy to say that he returned home of his own accord and now resides right at the back of the garden, sorry, wildlife reserve, or in our bedroom if it is raining. He’s quite harmless and a very private creature so we were thrilled to see him peeping out from the woods.

Major developments

 

Hello guests

Well, there have been some big goings on here at the Playa de Arlow over the last couple of days!!   First of all, as you can see, we have moved to bigger premises.  This was a planned move and was necessary as the popularity of our exclusive resort continues to grow.  We hope you like the new resort and will enjoy the many new facilities we now have on offer.  This move also means we have room for bigger and better events and we will keep you posted about these!  We still have some work to do here so we hope you will bear with us and enjoy the bar and pool area, which are both splendid.

Without wanting to worry anyone, we have also had to delay things slightly because somebody left the gate open yesterday, during the move, and the lion got out (again!).  He’s a friendly beast, and only eats small children so guests at the Playa need not worry as we are child unfriendly here, as you know.  However, it has got into the press and there has been all sorts of fuss over it, with people wondering why we have a lion at a beach resort and so on.  This has obviously delayed our move so we do apologise and ask you to be patient while we sort this out.

Oh and if anyone sees a lion wandering around by the pool area, it’s ours.
