Lanzarote Hotels

Tiptoe across hot golden sands (or in some case jet black) to immerse yourself in crystal-clear sparkly seas, feeling the cooling Atlantic water sooth your sun-kissed skin. With year-round sunshine Lanzarote promises the perfect summer, or winter, get-away-from-it-all vacation. But there’s more than golden beaches and cyan seas. The island’s a UNESCO biosphere reserve, so its resort towns are refreshingly undeveloped, while inland there’s a mind-bogglingly varied volcanic-cone laden landscape of never-ending ashy lava fields, Sahara-style desert plains, lush northern greenery and thriving vine fields.

Things to see

Despite the fact that it might be hard to tear yourself away from the languid dreaminess of Lanzarote’s soft sandy beaches – think sun lounger, gently lapping seas, soft sand grains under your toes – this small island is ripe for exploring. The 3 main resort towns – Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise – offer up a healthy list of tourist-centric attractions including family-friendly theme parks such as the ever-popular Rancho Texas Park, where slap happy sea lions, colourful parrots and daring birds of prey jostle for attention. Away from the resorts, Lanzarote’s mixed landscape makes for perfect hire car day trips. Drive through the arid ash fields of Timanfaya National Park to feel like you’ve landed on the pot-holed surface of another planet, while a quick hop on a ferry from Orzoza will take you back in time to sleepy La Graciosa – a tiny volcanic island with vast golden beaches.

Hotels in Lanzarote

Catering for everyone, Lanzarote’s vast and varied accommodations range from luxurious hotels with Atlantic views, luscious tropical gardens and direct beachfront access to the more modestly priced resort with family-friendly amenities including a vast on-site swimming pool, babysitting services and international cuisine. If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Lanzarote your best option is to head a few roads back from the beach in any town, where good value basic rooms are available in apartments and hotels, often with an on-site pool. For something more intimate, try one of the few boutique style 5 and 4 star-rated Lanzarote hotels.

Where to stay

You only have to glimpse the rows of sun loungers to know you’ve hit beach holiday heaven in Puerto del Carmen. Catering for a Northern European – mostly British – crowd, Lanzarote’s busiest purpose-built tourist town abounds with international restaurants, offering pizza, all-day breakfast and steak and chips as standard, souvenir shops, and buzzing clubs and bars. Costa Teguise may be similar but it’s a smaller more family-friendly alternative, while Playa Blanca’s sleepier shores should do the trick if you fancy lazing on the beach without the fun-in-the-sun vibe. It’s also within touching distance of secluded Punta del Papagayo’s heavenly golden sands.

How to get to Lanzarote

Lanzarote’s international airport, just a few miles southwest of Arrecife, serves the whole island. A range of budget and charter flights land here from major UK airports, mainland Spain and other – mostly northern – European cities. It’s also possible to hop between the Canary Islands, as flights run daily from Tenerife and Gran Canaria, or you can catch a ferry from Tenerife or Fuerteventura. Once on the island, most hotels offer transfers to and from the airport, though a hire car is your best bet for exploring independently, as bus services are often intermittent in more remote areas.
