Sun Island shares the site with its twin hotel, Sun Tropical. Arriving onsite can be quite daunting at first due to the size of the complex. Also, the two hotels are exact copies of one another, which can complicate things when trying to find your room! Once the confusion over though, the complex gives way to a fun-filled holiday, especially for families and large groups, as there is plenty of space for children to run around. The complex does feel a little like a holiday ?estate' though, which contributes to its low-budget appearance.
The reception is large and bright and although the staff's English isn't always up to scratch, everyone is very friendly and will go out of their way to help guests. The lobby has some small groups of rattan sofas, where you will find a few guests who have found refuge in the cool and calm of the lobby. The structure of the complex has been divided into several clusters, each with its own oval pool. The positive aspect of the resort is that despite its size, it is possible to find your little nest close to your room, as opposed to having to walk around the complex for hours permanently. The accommodation blocks respect the island construction rules and are no higher than one storey up. The typical Lanzarote style white washed buildings adorned with light blue pergolas and window frames help to break up the monotony of the concrete.
In the centre of the complex, you will find the largest pool of the island, which is truly impressive. Music plays for most of the day here, so for peace and quiet, guests have the option of relaxing by one of the smaller pools close to their room. You will also find the kids' club nearby. The kids' club was a little disappointing however, due to the staff that looked completely unmotivated and not particularly pleasant on the whole.
Every night there is a show in the resort 'Carpa', which is situated far from the main hotel buildings so that guests are not disturbed by the noise. The carpa is truly impressive in size - guests will find a bar here.
Guests also have free access to the gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and Turkish bath. Use of the tennis courts comes at a small fee.
