Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 4.7 /10

    The Gran Melía Volcán Lanzarote Hotel stands next to the Marina Rubicón, approximately 900m from the centre of the village of Playa Blanca and Timanfaya National Park, where the island's volcanoes are to be found.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The hotel has a total of 255 rooms distributed in 20 houses typical of the area. Each one of them has an exceptional view of the Rubicón Marina and Fuerteventura Island. They all have a lounge furnished with a sofa, a coffee table and comfortable armchairs. The decor is purposely original and welcoming, thanks particularly to the blue tones used for the decoration and the wicker furniture as a reference to the sea. The blue floor tiling adds the final touch to the marine decor. You will be able to enjoy the delightful view from a small terrace. The bathrooms are rather spacious and luxurious with their bathrobes, double washbasin, bidet, magnifying mirror and hair dryer. As a whole, the guestrooms are very comfortable. The suites come with an extra lounge, which is separate from the bedroom. Their bathrooms are equipped with a shower and a huge hydromassage bathtub, and they boast an even more breathtaking view than in the standard rooms.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    The Gran Melía Volcán Hotel has every amenity a 5 star hotel should have. You will find the reception very pleasant, and while you wait to check in, you can relax in one of the lounges decorated with wicker furniture and fine wrought iron and enjoy the view of the inner garden embellished with a small lake. Many floral compositions ornament this area and some soft music adds the final touch to the ambiance. Next to the reception, guests can enjoy a cocktail, or any other drink, at the bar. If you need to check your emails, you can use the internet area that is also located next to the reception. There are 3 swimming pools available, surrounded by impressive greenery that is particularly well trimmed. You will feel as though you are on holiday on a tropical island... During the day, several bars serve refreshments. All you need to do is choose a place where you want to relax: by the pool or in the shade! You will be able to exercise at the gym and play squash on the hotel's brand new court. Another one of the leisure amenities is the life-size chess board located in the huge garden. Bicycles are available for hire at the reception. Finally, if you feel like going on a little outing, the hotel staff will be happy to organise one for you. A mini-club is available for children aged 5 to 12. The team of monitors will care of their entertainment. A huge games room, with all of their favourite games. is also at their disposal.. With the children occupied, a spa is available for adults, out of the way of the hotel itself. It is equipped with a hammam, a thermal bath, and a jacuzzi and offers services such as hydrotherapy, massages, and bodycare, complemented by a beauty parlour and a hairdresser.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    Three restaurants will satisfy the most demanding of palates: guests can enjoy quality exotic cuisine at the Japanese restaurant; the Italian restaurant serves delicious Mediterranean meals, and international haute-cuisine enthusiasts will favour the chefs' talent at the Gourmet. What more is there to say? The gastronomic choice is spectacular!

    Beach

    There is no beach.

    To know

    The clientele consists mainly of couples, as the amenities aren't adapted to children; moreover, this hotel's development policy is to first and foremost focus on adult guests. The establishment is therefore very quiet. It is a dream spot for relaxing or enjoying a romantic break. This hotel's "Royal" services consist of accommodating guests in one of the 48 rooms or in one of the 10 suites, much more luxurious and spacious than the standard rooms and available for an extra charge. The suites are located in an ideal area within the estate and are equipped with extra facilities and benefit from additional services: a butler service, a menu for an extensive choice of pillows and sheets, a mini hi-fi system fitted with an iPod docking station, etc. Guests accommodated in suites also have access to a private bar as well as a private pool and terrace.

      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 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.

      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.

      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!

      • Location 7.0

      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.

      • Location 7.0

      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.
