Excellent hotel, rooms of a good standard and match many other 5 stars we've stayed at. Breakfast marvellous, staff fantastic, nothing too much trouble, housekeeping really good and friendly. Location is opposite the marina, about a 15 minute walk along a beautiful coastal path to the centre of Playa Blanca with all you could need - shops, restaurants. Had a... More

We stayed in February 2015 on a half-board basis in a standard room. We were not in the club section. Room was 576 and this had a patio area facing out across the marina but you could not see much as the room level is lower than the surroundings. The room was average for what you would expect from a... More

We took a package trip to Hotel Volcan on Lanzarote. The hotel complex is large and gives a good sense of space, although it can seem a bit of maze to begin with. Check in was efficient. The rooms were spacious with a small, handy balcony. There is an inside sitting area and a good sized bathroom. We visited in... More

This is not a 5* hotel by international standard but it is very good. I thought the position on the Marina Rubicon was perfect, it gave us lovely views, lots of space, many interesting corners in the grounds to sit and read or enjoy the sun (wind allowing!) Our room was spacious and clean and was cleaned every morning while... More

We arrived at the hotel to be told we were being upgraded to a Junior Suite free of charge. They then said they had thought our son was under 2 years old but could plainly see he was a teenager (13 years old) and told us we would have to pay 490 Euros extra. We explained that we had declared... More

We stayed at this hotel as a couple in February 2015. The hotel itself is excellent, very clean and tidy with a very impressive reception area. The double room we stayed in was very clean and spacious with enough room for a sofa and two chairs that didn't feel at all cramped. The room was cleaned daily to a high... More

The hotel is very well situated for walking. Directly outside the hotel you can turn left and walk past the castle and along the cliff tops with beautiful views. If you turn right you have about a 25 minute walk into Playa Blanca and then onwards for about 5 miles following the rocky coastline. Both directions have wide promenades and... More

The volcan just about ticks all the boxes. Great rooms, lots of space, amazing check in, very friendly and engaging staff. It was my girlfriends birthday and the hotel gave her a card and a bottle of bubbly - a very much appreciated gesture. The weather was nice, but too cold for the pools. Excellent room with a sea view,... More

Main building very impressive with 3 floor atrium, large trees and waterfall. Rooms spacious and comfortable but some details lacking. No Wi-Fi in rooms and very slow near reception. Small and very old TV (not flat screen). Tiny cheap plastic stirrers for tea and coffee in room. This is not what one expects in a 5 star hotel. Many 2... More
