This luxurious hotel really takes care of guests – from the welcoming glass of cava to the turn-down service at night. It’s ideal for beach lovers, too, with a sandy stretch just outside.
There are three pools, plus a smaller number for children, and an adults-only Jacuzzi® . When it comes to food, five elegant à la cartes cover world cuisine, while a selection of bars serve mellow music.

First time to Lanzarote celebrating our silver wedding. Staff so friendly, attend to your every need, couldn't do enough for you. Hotel has a fabulous location overlooking the beach with awesome views to the other Canary Islands. Well worth paying that little bit extra for a sea view. Bottle of champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries were left in our room on our anniversary day. We opted for the relax room which allowed you to breakfast in the a la carte restaurant, turn down maid service with sheets fragranced nightly and daily entry into the spa. A wonderful week and will definitely be back.More
Fantastic family friendly hotel
Myself, my Husband and our 1 year old Daughter recently stayed for a week at the end of April. We booked through Thomson and either they or the hotel arranged to have a private taxi pick us up from the airport and whisk us off to the hotel. This was much appreciated with a tired toddler! It's roughly 30 minutes drive to the hotel and upon arriving, our suitcases were collected and taken straight to our room and we were greeted with a glass of champagne to enjoy whilst we checked in. I was so grateful that the hotel had honoured my request for a top floor room. Having read previous reviews about noise, it seemed as though a top floor room was essential to minimise sleep issues! We were on the 4th floor (same level as reception) in block A. We had a sea view suite, which whilst we could see the sea, was mostly overlooking the pools, which was fine. The room was a good size with separate bedroom and lounge, small kitchenette area with kettle, fridge, microwave etc. in the hallway, large bathroom with separate bath and shower and a decent sized balcony with 2 sunloungers and a small table. As there were 3 of us in the room it would have been nice to have had an extra sunlounger or chair for the balcony, but it wasn't a huge problem. The room was cleaned usually in the morning, though on a couple of days it was later in the afternoon. Floors were washed, beds made, clothes/toys etc. were picked up, though it could have done with a little dusting as I noticed dust starting to gather by the end of the week. The hotel reception/corridor areas are stunning, lots of wood, open areas and foliage, especially in the area surrounded by waterfalls and ponds etc. very nice! Would love to know what the smell was in reception...my Husband claimed he could barely smell it but it seemed so strong every time we walked in...nice but just a little overpowering! The hotel has 2 large pools, I think one is heated and the other not, though we didn't go in either of these. There is a childrens pool close by and a child/adult jacuzzi. The childrens pool had 2 shower/fountains, was a good depth and heated well. I was a bit worried the pools would be too cold for my Daughter with it only being April, but she didn't seem to mind. We didn't realise until another family told us about it towards the end of our holiday, but there is another pool near the family block, D I think, which is located over the road, so you go through a tunnel (a must see for the fish if anything!) which starts from near the Timanfaya theatre. There is just so much more for young children here to do than in most other places we looked at. There's an indoor soft play, my only gripe with this was that they had designated areas for 0-2, 2-4 and 4+ and my Daughter was a little bored in the 0-2 section, it was tiny, so we only visited there the once. Kikoland is adjacent to the hotel grounds and again has different areas for ages, each with a pool, playground and clubhouse building. We only went in the 0-2 section but it was great, the pool was really shallow and so warm with a slide and a few toys to play with. There are lots of sunbeds around the pools for adults to relax a little. Each night, except Saturday, there was a disco at 8pm at the hotel for the little ones. Kiko the duck and some of the other mascots made an appearance, as they often did at breakfast and dinner and the children love them. We had a half board package. There are 3 restaurants included within this for breakfast and dinner; a Mexican one, an Italian one and an International one. 2 out of the 3 are open each night with the exception of Friday when only the International one is open. We ate as often as we could in the Mexican one, where we thought the food was more to our taste and had more of an atmosphere as part of it is outside overlooking the pools. We went to the Italian a couple of times and that was as you would expect...though we were disappointed in the International one, there wasn't much that I fancied eating there and barely anything for my Daughter. Breakfast can be had at any of the 3 buffet restaurants. In general unless you arrived for dinner at 6.30-7pm the food was never really that hot. For me, the food lets the hotel down, sure there are lots of fancy looking appetisers but those are just not our sort of thing. Right across the promenade from the hotel is a lovely, safe, sandy beach. There are sunbeds to rent and a couple of cafes. If you get bored of Playa Dorada, there is another great beach 30-40 minutes walk along the promenade past the harbour. There's a fair amount to do in the local area, we went to the marina, the Papagayo beaches and Timanfaya volcanic park. Oh, I almost forgot the WiFi! Super important to stay connected these days! It was OK...sometimes it was fine, though other times we found our devices interfered with each other and no one could get online! In the end I gave up and just roamed on my mobile. TL;DR, Lovely 5* option, plenty for children to do, food a little disappointing, would return if we choose to go back to Playa Blanca.More

Amazing hotel from start to finish
Absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel. The attention to detail in the facilities and from the staff is brilliant. They think of everything. Clean. Luxurious. Everything you could possibly need. Anyone who has anything bad to say about this hotel has nothing better for doing than finding faults in things. I have stayed in many five star hotels and this is brilliant. Staff are constantly cleaning and maintaining the property, every staff member greets you at all times even when simply walking past them, there's a huge choice of restaurants on the property and many more outside the property - 5 minutes walk either direction. This was our first holiday with our 8 month old baby and they were fantastic with him. Even if we ate out we could get food from the buffets for our baby. Nothing was too much to ask for. Excellent. Most worthy of the five stars they so proudly display after their name. It is a large hotel but at no time did it feel crowded - pool, restaurants, common areas. No end to entertainment options for children or adults alike - all free of couse.More

Huge complex with brilliant rooms and facilities
Not a lot to dislike about this complex the rooms were a huge much better than anticipated, Close to the beach, lots of restaurants to choose from. Sausages and bacon at breakfast seems to be fried but a huge choice to choose from it was easy to find a suitablereplacement. Many nearby seafood restaurants with great wine list. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday as a couple or with the young family I would recommend this hotel if you're looking for something more lively then you would be better suited to a complex on the other side of the island. Overall very impressed with the standards of cleanliness food choice and decor. More
