We have just returned home after spending 7days at the Volcan hotel in Lanzarote. We are a family of 4 including 7 year old twin boys whom had never travelled abroad before. The hotel was as expected of a 5 star hotel, location/ facilities & food all good but the staff efficiency & hotel atmosphere were the difference. We were... More

Stayed here with Family in July 2014. Surprised at some of the negative reviews as in-laws had stayed here several times and really liked it. Got two rooms next to each other with adults and 1 child in each. Stayed for 10 days and wished it was longer. Kids club was a highlight - staff were fantastic & it runs... More

Wow, we were so pleased with our choice of hotel. The room was better than we expected. Room 452 with a massive balcony. It was our pearl wedding anniversary and were greeted with a bottle of sparkling wine and a bowl of fruit. The room was well equipped with smelliest, scented candle, shower gel, bath robes, slippers. Lots of towels... More

What a fantastic hotel. We just returned from a 7 night stay at this elegant and spacious hotel. We went half board and the food was very good. It was buffet style dining with plenty of choice. The pools were not over crowded and we always got a sunbed. We were booked into the Club Volcan package which got you... More

We have just returned from our second visit to the Hotel Volcan in Playa Blanca. The hotel is situated very near to the Marina Rubicon, where there are lots of lovely restaurants, cafés and tapas bars (and also some clothes and accessory shops and a couple of supermarkets). The beach at Playa Dorada is a short walk away along the... More

We have just spent 10 nights at the Volcan taking two rooms as we were a party of six (three children age 9, 7 and 3). The hotel felt like a five star experience but for us the personal attention and friendliness that Gaby and her colleagues in the Kids Club gave us was fantastic. We don't tend to use... More

I've never written a hotel review before but since people appear to pay a lot of attention to trip advisor it's worth giving this hotel some credit. Although at full capacity the hotel never seemed over crowded and everyone of the staff were polite and friendly (a special shout out to Sandra who runs the pool bar/cafe, she was superb... More

Stayed here with my husband. Stayed at the club volcan area. Room lovely, very clean. Nice balcony overlooking the pool and Bay Area. Breakfast very nice. Staff very accommodating and pleasant. Other than breakfast did not think the quality and choice of food reflected what you would expect from a five star. This wouldn't put me off coming again but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This luxury five star hotel, the Hotel Volcán Lanzarote, has a prime location on the seafront and together with the “Marina Rubicón” yachting harbour it constitutes a tourist resort in the southern part of the island - an area that forms part of the UNESCO’s “World Network of Biosphere Reserves”. The hotel is located just 10 km from the Timanfaya National Park, 900 metres from the picturesque fishing village of Playa Blanca, where you will find shopping centres, bars and restaurants, and just 30 minutes from the International Airport of Arrecife. Andrés Piñeiro, the chief architect of the project, chose a design based on a complex of classical buildings that are a true reflection of the typical architectural style of the island. The design of the hotel is reminiscent of a typical village of Lanzarote, with romantic patios, traditional courtyards and secluded spots, together with the magnificent hotel entrance which is a replica of the Teguise church of “Ntra. Sra. de Guadalupe”. With its unique architecture and the distinguished service of a luxury hotel, the Hotel Volcán Lanzarote is an icon within the high end segment of the tourism sector. ... more   less
