I’ve nothing more to add to the description of the Hotel which is well documented in many previous reviews. Being our 9th time in Playa Blanca people might think we could get bored of the place. Not so especially when you add this fine Hotel into the mix 8 perfect nights for us : we couldn’t find fault at all... More

We stayed at Volcan Lanzarote for 7 nights during March on a bed and breakfast basis in the Club Volcan section. Upon our arrival we we dealt with efficiently and politely and given the option to charge any extras to our room (secured against a credit card). The first item to note that there was no separate Club Volcan check-in... More

We stayed here late July 2014 with two children aged 6 & 2. Had a very nice stay. Pools are lovely, hotel is close to many shops and restaurants. The hotel is situated by a marina and is the upmarket end of Playa Blanca. The hotel staff were very professional throughout, all of them all of the time. Top marks... More

Hotel - reasonably well kept rooms, although quite a few bulbs were out and the fridge was warm (but included in the price so can't complain too much!). Room cleaning times varied massively (9am-4pm) so made it a little tricky to plan your day. Breakfast - vast choice, quality of some things was questionable, but the fruit & salad were... More

After self catering last year my wife decided to try the Hotel Volcan this year going half board as it was opposite the place we stayed last year and was 5 star, how wrong could have we been. First of all the room was not ready when we arrived so we had to kill an hour walking around. When I... More

We arrived at Hotel Volcan around 7pm on Saturday 19th July 2014. The entrance to the hotel was very impressive, almost church-like with candles lined along each side as you walk along the rectangular shaped room. This led into the reception area which is literally inside the volcano shaped structure which is the centre-piece of the hotel. As we checked... More

We recently stayed at the Volcan for 7 nights with bed and breakfast.

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
