About Lanzarote

Like every winter sun-spot once beloved of 1970s package tour operators, Lanzarote still hosts its fair share of Brits Abroad. The good news here is that the burger and beer brigade voluntarily incarcerate themselves inside three ghastly resorts; and never leave. Which means the rest of this exquisite island – with its 300 volcanoes, lunar lava landscapes, vineyards, fish restaurants, world-class surfing, whitewashed villages and obligatory old men with donkeys – is completely unspoiled. And plenty of the best places to stay in Lanzarote are too.

Lanzarote's growing popularity as a destination for independent travellers has inspired local councils to improve the local sights and signpost some of the most spectacular walking trails. And this has fuelled the entrepreneurship of local folk with a bent towards hospitality, and a number of excellent rural hotels, fincas and guesthouses have opened in the last coupe of years.

On top of the spectacular landscape and beautiful beaches, Lanzarote also has a number of museums and galleries of note.

As you'd expect with its year round climate, the island is a popular destination. So if you want to guarantee yourself a room in one of the best places to stay in Lanzarote, we recommend you get organised and book early. For those who'd prefer a self catering option, check out the selection with our online partner, Booking.com.

To Escape!

  • La Casona de Yaiza is an early 19th Century country hotel with first-class dining - this hotel has one of the best restaurants on the island. The rooms are lovely and tranquil, with huge bathrooms. Breakfast under the bougainvillea on ham with green olives, cold tortilla and excellent coffee.

For a Beach Break

  • Casa del Embajador on the busy Playa Blanca, is a beachfront property converted from a former Ambassador's residence. Rooms are plain but charming and its only a two minute stroll to the beaches, restaurants and shops.

For a Villa Break

  • Casa el Morro is a charming collection of suites, self catering houses and a yurt. Situated in a quiet part of the island it is one of the best places to stay in Lanzarote for families or groups and is fantastic value for money.
  • In the heart of the island, Finca Malvasia is a complex of guesthouse and four apartments set amid vineyards. The apartments are arranged around a stylish pool area. Interiors are contemporary with a rustic twist.
  • Casa Tomaren offers seven luxury villas plus a pool to die for, created from a volcanic sinkhole! Interiors are a super stylish fusion of Spanish, Moroccan and Indonesian. It's the perfect place for a large get together with friends or family.

For those on a Budget

  • Casa de Hilario is a beautifully appointed guesthouse with seven bedrooms. Furniture is handmade and the materials used are a great mix of the modern and rustic. Charming terrace and tiny pool for cooling off.
  • Caserio de Mozaga is a a family run, family friendly B&B in the heart of Lanzarote. There are eight simple but stylish bedrooms, two with private sitting areas. The only downside is the lack of swimming pool, but it makes an excellent base for exploring the island.

For a Special Occasion

  • Villa Vik is all luxury, all the time. Smart and sophisticated, with great little touches like free champagne on arrival and lovely toiletries, the pool area is a must and if you can drag yourself away the capital Arrecife is a short stroll along the seafront.
  • For the ultimate in five star luxury try the Gran Meliá Salinas - with its VIP section that's so secluded that you need a swipe card to enter. This was Lanzarote's first five star hotel, built in the 70s in the same brutalist style as London's Barbican Centre. If you don't fancy the sound of that opt for one of the refurbished rooms, or go all out and upgrade to one of the nine Garden Villas in the VIP area...

For a holiday villa or apartment

  • If you're looking for your own little home from home, then perhaps a villa or apartment is the best option. We recommend you check out the properties with our online partner, Booking.com.
