Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Princesa Yaiza is one of Lanzarote's biggest and best quality hotels as far as resorts are concerned. So if this is your cup of tea, it doesn't get any better. You'll find this huge hotel sitting along the promenade of Playa Dorada, the main beach of Playa Blanca. With its eight restaurants, shopping boulevard, enormous spa centre and six pools, Princesa Yaiza really does have it all. It even has its own mini resort for kids next door, 'Kikoland' complete with its own sets of pools, theatre, restaurant and tons of different indoor and outdoor activities to keep children having fun throughout the holiday. This hotel is however not ideal for visitors looking for an intimate authentic Canary Island experience.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The resort is located in Playa Blanca, one of the island's main tourist spots. Here you will find an array of tourist bars and restaurants and there isn't much in the way of sightseeing. Hiring a car to scour the island is highly recommended. The hotel is situated across a public promenade a couple of minutes' walk to the beach, Playa Dorada, which is the spot's beach. The resort is close to the Rubicon Water Park, which attracts a great deal of visitors every season.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The hotel has 385 rooms in total divided into several wings and categories. The main differences are found in the view and the size. Family rooms and Junior suites are available for families or groups. The rooms are a little dark, but spacious and well-appointed. The views vary between sea, garden or pool views with the sea views being more expensive. They are furnished with a bathroom, a bathrobe and slippers, a balcony or terrace, a hairdryer, a telephone, satellite TV and radio channel, air conditioning, fridge, mini-bar (extra cost), Internet connection (extra cost) and a safe (no extra cost). There is 24-hour room service. The Princess Yaiza, a hotel in Lanzarote that is also handicapped-accessible, has five suites equipped with all the means necessary for individuals with reduced mobility. Otherwise the rooms are plain but comfortable, with heavy pine wood furniture and balconies. All bathrooms have bath tubs. The real downside however, is the fact that the rooms have a second window which opens out onto the interior of the hotel, onto the corridor, making the room feel dull and echoing sounds from the rest of the hotel audible.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The Princesa Yaiza in one of the largest hotels in Lanzarote. The large lobby has been designed with typical Canary Island culture in mind, complete with green plants hanging from the ceiling and a wooden gallery forming a separate floor above the main lobby. Here, the hotel organises exhibitions of local artists' work. The lobby is very calm as are the check in desks, for individual check in. Through the lobby to the back, you will find a rather dark café lounge area, which comes alive at night when the grand piano comes to life. The hotel has five floors and the restaurants are dotted all around the resort, from the Japanese close to the lobby, to the Ice cream bar down by the sea front on the hotel's own exterior shopping boulevard. The hotel, on first approach, is attractive despite its large size. With its white washed walls and wooden architecture, it does slightly reflect Canary Island architecture. The entrance is adorned with tall, exotic looking palm trees, which set a real holiday atmosphere to welcome guests upon arrival.

    Outside, the accommodation is arrange in the shape of a horseshoe around the main pool, which allows for most rooms to have a sea view. This does however give the hotel a towering aspect, which can feel daunting when trying to unwind by the pool. The huge hotel also has little vegetation around its outdoor areas, which doesn't help in breaking up the monotony of the large concrete blocks.

    It is hard not to get lost around the resort complex at first and distances are great, although the services offered are of a good standard, like the well-equipped gym and large wellness centre with an impressive array of beauty treatments and different massages to sample. The best part of the spa however, if its black pool with tiny led lights in the ceiling, giving guests the impression if swimming under a blanket of stars after the sun has set.

    Otherwise you will also find a choice of sports courts, from tennis, football and basketball.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The resort has eight restaurants in total with every kind of meal plan on offer. The eight restaurants include: Yaiza, international food, La Hacienda, Mexican, La Piazeta, Italian, Isla de Lobos, beach café, Don Giovanni, luxury Italian seafood, Mas Tapas, Spanish, El Chiringito, Pool bar, Kiko, family snack bar (open in high season only). Most restaurants are frequented by in-house guests, although locals also come in for a bit to eat especially at weekends. All the restaurants are attractive and cater for a high number of guests, with Yaiza being the most popular with guests as it is the only buffet on offer at all three meals, so be patient when eating here as there can be a bit of a crowd.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The Playa Dorada is found just across the public promenade that lines the beaches. All beaches in Lanzarote are public; the hotels therefore have no specific beach service. There is however, an independent place you can hire sun loungers and parasols from. The beach is often crowded, but the sand is fine and clean and the water is transparent and extremely pleasant. We do however recommend driving out to the nearby Papagayo creeks for a little more privacy.

    To know

    There is a free car park for in-house guests out front. The most impressive aspect of this hotel is the whole separate resort for children only that you can find next door to the hotel. Children will be far from unhappy here, that's for sure! The best thing is for parents, is that this is a free service. As far as internet goes, there is a Wi-Fi corner in the lobby at an extra charge. Also, despite its size, the resort does have a selection of rooms available for people with reduced mobility.

    On a more serious note, the Yaiza Princesa's architecture does go against Lanzarote's construction regulations, which clearly state that all buildings on the island must be restricted to a maximum of four floors. Sadly, corruption has got the best of the local government, which is why you may notice these types of ?illegal' hotels popping up all over the place.

      This 4 star Playa Blanca hotel is located approximately 300m from the beach and 700m from the village centre. It is one of the oldest of the H10 hotels on the island. Some of the rooms have been renovated, but, to be honest, some of the common areas seem to have remained untouched since the 70's - the setting is a bit old fashioned! However, the hotel is generally very pleasant and calm.

      The Ibérostar Papagayo is a hotel of quality offering a wide range of sports and leisure activities, and in particular a spa. A hotel for all the family, just a stone's throw away from a paradisiacal sea and, moreover, from the famous unspoilt beaches of Playa Papagayo.

      The Gran Melía Volcan Hotel is an architectural experience for all of its guests. Designed by Andrés Piñero, it was designed as if it were a typical Lanzarote village, with romantic little courtyards, small squares and traditional spots. Inside the hotel grounds, you will find some of the island's symbolic sites, such as a reconstruction of the church of Teguise through which you will need to walk in order to get to the main hall. Once there, you will find yourself in the volcano's core: the reception hall. At first, the description of this hotel may put off guests seeking luxury and refinement, but the idea is actually perfectly adapted to the general decor of the hotel. In fact, the staff has to mention these details to the guests who may not notice them by themselves.

      Sun Island is one of three apartment complexes belonging to the Orly Hotel Group. Situated in the back streets of Playa Blanca, the area is calm and quiet and a short walk away from the beach. The highlight of the Sun complex is its enormous pool - we can confirm that it is the largest pool of the island. Ideal for families or large groups of friends, there are an infinite number of pools on site, but remembering where your room is may be a bit of a struggle in this maze of apartments!

      HL Rio Playa Blanca is like an extension of HL Club Playa Blanca in style. The resort is a basic resort with all the essentials and comfortable bungalows. The beach is a short drive away, so this resort is not ideal for holidaymakers looking for a beach holiday. An all-inclusive resort, the food is not the best quality, but it is handy for families on a budget. In the same vein, the HL group also has a third property, HL Paradise Island, also in Playa Blanca.

      The Iberostar Lanzarote Park is arranged in five rings along the coast in Playa Blanca, but far from a beach such as the Playa Dorada. The resort is ideal for families and elderly groups or couples as the layout is fairly compact. There is a good variety of facilities, including a well-equipped kids' club and sports facilities. This is not the place to stay for holidaymakers wishing to be on the beach as this part of Playa Blanca has a jagged and wild coastline, and therefore is not ideal for swimming in the sea, but the area is extremely pleasant and worth the compromise.

      The large 486 room Hesperia Playa Dorada, not to be confused with its more upmarket sister hotel, Hesperia Lanzarote in Puerto Calero, was somewhat of a disappointment. Dull and drab with no sens of service, was our impression of this sad-looking hotel in dire need of a facelift. On the positive side of things, the hotel has a lovely pool and is set on the Playa Dorada, Playa Blanca's main beach. The hotel's location means that most of its rooms have sea views. There is also a golf course next to the hotel, which is a great attraction for golf aficionados. We also liked the fact that authentic works of arts were placed all around the hotel, despite the fact that the work wasn't shown under its best light.

      The Hipotel Natura Palace is situated in Playa Blanca, the second busiest tourist spot on the island. The hotel is large and very far from authorised architecture on the island. With its huge glass front, the hotel is hard to miss, despite being a little on the outskirts of town. Despite the hotel's large imposing structure, the exterior spaces make it a very peaceful place to stay. It is an ideal hotel for people looking for peace and quiet with all the usual facilities whilst being within walking distance of an animated part of the island.

      The Sandos Papagayo Arena is the largest hotels on the island with 488 rooms, situated between Playa Blanca and Papagayo. It is a labyrinth of concrete buildings and pools that can get extremely busy and animated in the high season (June-August). The large resort is right on the coast and is ideal for families looking for a holiday where absolutely everything is included without accommodation, peace and quiet or authenticity of the island being a priority. Most tourists here tend to spend their time basking in the sun after downing a couple of pints and a stack of pancakes at the second breakfast offered at the pool bar. The resort doesn't quite do justice to the island's focus on nature, which is a shame and the décor is nothing to write home about.
