Stylish Lanzarote

Our verdict:

With its chic marina and unspoiled golden beaches, Playa Blanca in Lanzarote’s south is one of the more sophisticated spots changing the island’s reputation. And with a special deal for single parents, the luxury Hotel Volcan Lanzarote is ideal if you and your children are looking to try watersports, spa treatments or simply relax in style.

Classic Collection Holidays says

Playa Blanca is our favourite resort in Lanzarote – this former fishing village has managed to retain its original charm, enhanced by sophisticated low-rise hotels, golden beaches, a very pretty promenade and lively marina.

  • luxury resort
  • single parent offer
  • waterfront location

If you want to fly and flop in a luxury hotel, the Hotel Volcan Lanzarote is the perfect choice – and we have negotiated a special deal for single parents.

These rooms are spacious and well appointed with a private balcony or terrace.

Facilities include a choice of swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, a gym, children’s play area and excellent spa. The hotel is located in the Rubicon Marina where there’s a superb water sports centre with a scuba-diving school, sailing, windsurfing and boat trips. There’s also a ferry service to Fuerteventura – only 20 minutes away and a great option if you fancy a day out.

The hotel’s location means you are spoiled for choice when it comes to the evenings – stroll through the marina to find a diverse range of cocktail bars and child-friendly places to eat or choose from the two restaurants on site, one of them specialising in Japanese cuisine.

If you are travelling solo and want to really splash out, you can upgrade to Club Volcan (single supplement applies). This part of the hotel is for adults only with sea views from all rooms and suites plus added touches such as a welcome cocktail, a fluffy bathrobe, private breakfast buffet, afternoon tea, a courtesy bar from 6pm to 9pm, an exclusive Club Volcan pool with complimentary aperitifs and 10% discount in the hotel’s restaurants.
