Volcan Lanzarote Hotel

The Volcan Lanzarote Hotel provides guests with immaculate grounds, three pools and a spa.

The hotel’s designed to resemble a typical Canarian village and the entrance is modelled on a local church. The grounds are defined by sunny terraces and whitewashed buildings that are coated in ivy.

If you don’t fancy a day lounging by one of the pools, then plenty of activities are on offer. Little ones can look forward to fun and games at the hotel-run kids’ club, while adults can enjoy tennis, aqua aerobics and giant chess.

For meals, the buffet restaurant serves all kinds of international food, while there are also three a la carte options that each have their own speciality.

Overview of Playa Blanca

Playa Blanca literally translates as ‘white beach’. If you’re looking for a holiday to Lanzarote where you can lounge on the sands and soak up the sun surrounded by a volcanic landscape, this is the place to be.

Playa Blanca is on the south-west coast of the island. When you step out of the Volcan Lanzarote Hotel, you’ll soon find that life here’s all about style and sophistication. Think beachside cocktails, fine dining and boutique shops.

With a number of beaches to choose from, a cluster of bars and a great choice of restaurants, you’ll never struggle to find something to see or do here.

Things to do in Playa Blanca

The Volcan Lanzarote Hotel is right on the seafront promenade, so it’s easy to get out and explore the best of Playa Blanca.

Next door, you’ll find the chic Marina Rubicon. Lined with luxurious bars, it’s a great spot to watch the world go by with a few cocktails or a coffee.

Along the front, you’ll also find the sandy Playa Mujeres, which is a favourite with families because of the space on offer, the range of facilities and the shallow waters.

The centre of Playa Blanca’s a 20-minute stroll away from the hotel. Here there are plenty of shops where you can scoop up souvenirs, tapas bars with delicious cuisine and drinking dens where you can enjoy a relaxing evening.

Resort Summary

In the centre of Playa Blanca you’ll find its namesake – a small but perfectly formed beach with distinctive white sand. Then head east about 10 minutes away from the town centre and you’ll find Playa Dorado, the ‘golden beach’, which is a great family-friendly place full of things to do.

Wander in the opposite direction and you’ll find Playa Flamingo and an amazing 50-metre tall lighthouse. Also east and slightly beyond Playa Dorado are the Papagayo coves, perhaps Lanzarote’s most unique and charming set of beaches.

Marina Rubicon is a relatively new addition to life in Playa Blanca, but has since become one of its defining features. A modern, fully-functioning marina complete with dozens of stunning boats, designer boutiques and a cluster of classy restaurants and bars means that this area is reminiscent of the resort Puerto Calero, otherwise known as ‘millionaire’s harbour’.
