    Location 5.72 /10

    The Sands Beach Resort is just a 10 minute walk from the centre of the village of Costa Teguise and some 25 mi from Lanzarote international airport. The hotel does not offer direct access to the sea but it does have a lagoon complete with a fine sandy beach. If you're not scared of the rocks, you could always pop down to the small cove that is accessible from the hotel.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The accommodation units on offer here are more like apartments than conventional hotel rooms and the facilities that come with them are also impressive. For a start, each apartment has its own little garden where you can relax in a hammock as you admire the view of the pool. Then there is the comfortable and tastefully-decorated kitchen-lounge area, which makes for very welcoming surroundings thanks to its warm colour scheme and wooden furniture. The kitchen is fully equipped and perfect for a family with children. The sofa in the lounge area can be turned into an additional bed. The double bedroom is rather large and is located next to the bathroom, which, for its part, features rather outdated decor but is nevertheless impeccable and equipped with a hair dryer, bathrobes, and a beauty kit. This place certainly seems to meet all the requirements for appealing to couples with younger children.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The hotel is designed in the style of a little village, with each guest room housed in an all-white bungalow featuring typical island architecture that blends in perfectly with that of the Costa Teguise. Despite the fact that there are 368 guest rooms with a total capacity of up to 1,050 people, the architects still managed to create welcoming surroundings that never get too crowded, even during high season. The little village is divided into 6 areas, each with its own pool and encircling a central square where the entertainment takes place; the reason why the area is so large. Rest assured though, you won't have to cross the whole complex to get to where you need to go. On entering the lounge area, the luxury of the decor feels more akin to a 4 star hotel than a 2 star hotel, not least because of the marble stairs adorning the room. To the right lie the bar, the disco (which can accommodate up to 600 people), and the entertainment room. If you'd like to enjoy a show without having to keep an eye on the children, there is a games room just next door equipped with all their favourite games. If you're the type of holidaymaker who likes to keep active, you might be pleased to know the hotel does have a gym that is a bit narrow but well equipped, as well as a tennis court. There is also a freshwater lagoon where you can enjoy a dip or try your hand at windsurfing without worrying about your safety. If you fancy taking a stroll into the village of Costa Teguise, you just have to walk along the seafront (directly accessible from the hotel). The walk will take just 15 minutes and the path is a very pleasant one, as it runs along the ocean.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    When it comes to dining, the hotel offers 2 choices. The first is the Restaurant La Hacienda, which serves an impressive buffet in a fully renovated old traditional manor. It's worth a visit for the surroundings but in terms of the cuisine you'll find the quality of the typical dishes served as a buffet could be better. If the rather formal restaurant isn't really your kind of thing, you could always try the selection of light dishes available in the restaurant at the poolside bar, the El Mai Tai. This is generally the more popular option among families since the El Mai Tai offers a special children's menu.

    To know

    The hotel attracts a primarily British clientele, consisting largely of families. The activities will delight sports enthusiasts, as a wide range of sporting activities are on offer.

      Playa Verde looks like a small non-descript resort like many on the island, however once inside, one realises that the resort is actually fairly large and distinguishes itself from the other hotels due to its large pool, which is the main focus of the hotel. The staff also looks fairly content with working at this resort, which can be felt in the service. There is a comfortable and warm atmosphere here, which is unusual for a resort of this size. Situated in Costa Teguise, the resort is ideal for families with children who love spending time at the pool.

      The Club Siroco is a pleasant 2 star establishment offering the services you would expect of a hotel in this category. The small complex comprises 175 guest rooms which are actually more like apartments. The whole complex is focused around the small swimming pool, which can get rather noisy during high season. Other than this slight drawback, you'll probably find you get good value for your money here, as the hotel also offers many facilities not generally found in hotels of this category.

      Part of the well-known Spanish hotel group, Barcelo, the all-apartment La Galea is a three star resort of manageable size in Costa Teguise, which is not to be confused with Teguise, a small inland village. There is a second Barcelo resort in the area, the Barcelo Lanzarote, which is a lot larger than its little sister, the La Galea. This resort is ideal for holidaymakers looking for the facilities and all-inclusive formula of a large hotel but with the impersonal nature of a huge resort. The resort is not located right on the beach, but it is a short walk away from the coast line.

      This four-star establishment boasts the best spa of the island and has everything you would expect from an "all-inclusive" hotel. The welcome at the reception desk, the bellboys and the entertainment team are all very friendly. Unlike the other establishments of the island, the clientele is quite varied: youths and families mingle, creating a friendly and warm atmosphere.

      The Nazareth apartments in Costa Teguise are in the 2 star category, but in reality, this is a 2 key establishment: this is a rating system that enables you to tell the difference between apartment hotels and hotels. Located at the heart of the village and only 250 m from the beach, the hotel enjoys an ideal location. With its typical Lanzarote architecture, this very charming establishment has a genuine authenticity that stands out on an island crammed with resorts and big hotel chains.

      Mansion Nazaret is a small, three-star, family-run hotel. The atmosphere is very welcoming, the reception is personalised and quality services are provided. This establishment isn't technically a hotel therefore no entertainment is organised in the evening. However, if you are looking for a charming and peaceful place to stay, this is the place for you.

      The Occidental Allegro Oasis resort, not to be confused with its sister hotel, the Occidental Gran Playa also in Costa Teguise, is one of several large non-descript complexes found in the Costa Teguise area. One of the smallest tourist hotspots on the island, Costa Teguise is not to be confused with Teguise which is found further inland. This resort is ideal for families wanting to stay somewhere with all the regular facilities on offer such as a mini club, evening entertainment and the like. Due to its size, the hotel looks more like a shopping mall, so not ideal for holidaymakers looking for a small intimate ambience. Although the resort is newer than its sister hotel, the Occidental Gran Playa just 5 minutes away, it could do with a renovation to bring it into the 21st Century as the décor does tend to be on the drab side.

      Barcelo Lanzarote resort is the second resort of the same chain on the island. Both are in Costa Teguise. The resort is one of the largest on the island and resembles somewhat of a 'holiday estate' due to its large (despite being low-rise) concrete structure. However, it does have some great facilities for families, meaning that families with babies do not need to lug cots, baths, changing tables and the like. The resort also has the best kids' club on the island. Beach fans, worry not as although the resort isn't on the seafront, the beach is a short walk away. Barcelo Lanzarote is ideal for families who want to have elaborate facilities for young children and who don't want to spend too much. However, as there isn't much to see in the surroundings, we strongly advise guests to hire a car for a couple of days to explore the rest of the island, which is without a doubt worth it due to its endless lava landscapes and beautiful beaches. This resort is also a good choice for sports fans as there are a number of activities on offer as well as various games courts for guest use.

      The all-suite Hotetur Lanzarote Bay resort is a medium sized resort of under 200 rooms. Alhtough it isn't the most stylish hotel on the island, the structure and décor have been kept simple and fairly basic, which gave the resort a clean cut look with a relaxed atmosphere that is suited to all types of guests from families to couples and groups of friends. Situated in Costa Teguise, not to be confused with Teguise, which is a small local inland village, is one of the smaller tourist spots on the island. It isn't too far from the airport, however the beaches are better towards the west and north of the island. The resort appears slightly clinical, but there are a few funky details that prevent it from falling into the ?boring' category. The good thing about this resort is that it is of manageable size, which makes a refreshing change from the huge large concrete structures found on the island; so this is a good compromise for holidaymakers looking for a cross between a small hotel but with an all-inclusive meals plan and evening activities.
