Our second time here, staying in what used to be known as the Royal Service (now Club Volcan) part of the hotel. Definitely choose the Club option if you visit this wonderful place....It's just so luxurious, comfortable,quiet, well-placed and perfect for a total flake-out which is exactly what we wanted! The Club sunbathing deck with its Balinese beds and very... More

We stayed here 03/08/2014 thru 11/08/2014 I can honestly say that in all my years of travelling the world over many continents, this is the best all round 5 Star hotel my wife and I have ever stay at. From the food to the all attentive staff and the rooms. Excellent vacation. Can't wait to get back. See you soon.... More

The room was beautiful with every facility imaginable and in addition to the superb bathroom with two sinks, there was a separate toilet with bidet. The view from the balcony over the port and the sea was exquisite and the hotel with... More

I was very wary before departing the UK having read some of the very negative reviews for this hotel and luckily they were unfounded. It is a little gem of a hotel. I stayed in Room 603 from 5-19 August, 2014 and was impressed with a sea view being an actual sea view for a change. My room overlooked the... 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
