Recently enjoyed a third holiday at this lovely hotel.We stayed,for the second time in the Cub Class accommodation and enjoyed the faultless service,lovely food and a peaceful sun-deck: such a combination of plus factors that we are tempted to return for two weeks in November.Thank you, everyone for looking after us so well. Jacqui and Francis Ward.

We have just returned from a one week holiday with our 2 children. We would thoroughly recommend this as a family friendly hotel - our children loved the mini club (the staff were fantastic) and we found it difficult to explore the island as they were insistent on going to the mini club everyday! Although it was the Easter holidays... More

Spent a fab week here in the second week of the Easter holidays. Having visited Lanzarote on a few occasions previously staying at the Princess Yaizia hotel we thought we would try The Volcan to take advantage of the location at the Rubicon Marina and an appreciable difference in cost without compromising hugely on quality. From that perspective the cost... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay within the Club Volcan area of the hotel from the moment we arrived to the minute we left, a week of peace and tranquility. We stayed in room 763 which was perfect with a lovely balcony overlooking the sun terrace and the sea. All the little extras that are included in the Club package are... More

The notion of what is Five Star and what is not is open to wide interpretation. It depends on the area and indeed the Country. I accept other views that the Hotel Volcan is not quite at Five Star status. However , it is an excellent Hotel. My Wife and I spent a fantastic week on Room and Breakfast in... More

The perfect place to stay for a sublime sun break of 4 nights…but I could imagine staying here much longer and was jealous of those who were doing just that! 

 Found this lovely oasis in a brochure, but booked independently on the strength of reviews here and reasonable off-season price. Was a bit nervous about a few elements, but... More

Before we went on holiday I had read quite a few reviews that didn't put the hotel in a good light and I wrote to the manager saying i felt i had made the wrong decision booking in at the Hotel Volcan. Having just returned i can say we had a good holiday, probably due to really lovely weather, but... More

We recently stayed at the Volcan Hotel and booked a Junior Suite as we wanted to make our holiday extra special.

Just got back from a lovely week away in the sun. Loved this hotel for it's unique design, location, the spacious rooms, the amazing views and the really lovely employees.

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
