“Lovely luxurious Lanzarote”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Well we loved our break, it was exactly what we wanted - quiet, chilled, personal service, great food, very chilled out. Nothing fancy. A simple private villa that was converted into an intimate hotel. We thought the service was 5 star. Silvia, Julua, Bela et al excelled. Our bar and food bill was much cheaper than we'd feared (!) so we felt it was very very good value....our Christmas day was particularly memorable, which should speak volumes about how hard the team tried to make the stay special.The food was also 5 star. Our room was fine, but nothing fab, but fine. The pool, jacuzzi, gardens, communal spaces were ideal for 2 people looking to hang, chill and do nothing. The location was good for walking to and fro bars along the beaches. Bikes for hire, free of charge and car rental arranged - good value and easy for seeing Lanzarote.

Room Tip: standard (garden) room - ask for 111 or 110 as further away from the pool/bars and don't have ro...

Having organised a transfer from the airport, we found ourselves at the hotel within 10 minutes. Due to delayed flights we arrived late, but the welcome was warm and the evening meal was nectar (including a complementary bottle of champagne). Spacious rooms,a wonderful and friendly service and a mere 5 mins from the promenade which extends in both directions, to Arrecife and Playa Honda, this was a perfect hotel for a much needed, peaceful break in the sun . If you are looking for an oasis of peaceful, intimate elegance in the middle of a busy and crowded holiday resort, Villa Vik is the perfect place.
Food was first class and the staff could not do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible. A hotel worth coming back to again and again.

This hotel is amazing. 14 rooms but only a handful being used. The food was wonderful and the staff are so friendly, helpful and professional. Towels are changed twice a day! Ok the hotel is in the middle of nowhere but the sea is a 3 min walk away. This is our secret.

Room Tip: We had a suite but we would just choose an ordinary room next time.

What a gem of a hotel! Yes it's quiet, but that was exactly what we wanted.

The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful - a lovely mix of Moorish and modern design done very tastefully. The standard rooms are a fantastic size and ours had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool, white rooftops and the sea beyond. The pool area and gardens were also well looked after and a lovely place to relax for the day.

The breakfasts were lovely - a different selection of fruits, hams and cheeses everyday; a lovely basket of fresh bread; yoghurt and cereals; freshly squeezed orange juice; and your choice of eggs or omelette cooked on demand. No complaints whatsoever. Dinner was also very good, although we chose to eat out a couple of evenings as the food at the hotel has more of an international than a local feel. However every meal we had was delicious. For those look for local seafood we can recommend La Marea in Playa Honda.

The service in the hotel was exemplary - always with a smile, and although they are not always standing in the bar (which seems a bit pointless if the maximum occupancy is only 28) they are always easy to find and happy to help without being intrusive. Their linguistic skills are excellent - we were really impressed with the English and German spoken.

The only slight downside for us was that there wasn't a beach within easy walking distance. It would be lovely to be able to spend a morning on the beach and an afternoon by the pool, but this isn't possible without a car. We did hire a car and went to Playa de Papagayo near Playa Blanca which is beautiful, and also visited the enormous market in Teguise on Sunday which we can thoroughly recommend.

All in all if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing, friendly hotel in which to recuperate from the stresses of everyday life then this is the place for you. Thank you for a wonderful week!

On arriving at the airport we found a taxi and told the taxi driver where we wanted to go - you must be mad he said, why would you want to stay there, there is nothing to do! We were somewhat alarmed at his comment but shouldn't have worried, we had a wonderful week of rest and were looked after brilliantly. The hotel is literally 5 minutes from the airport so the taxi costs 10 euros in each direction.

We were welcomed by Daniel, who although only spoke a little English, was very welcoming and showed us to our room, he explained how everything worked and left us to unpack and get ready for dinner.

The dinner was a choice of 3 starters and 2 main courses followed by dessert, and this was what we had every night. The food was excellent and the chef very happy to cook something else if you didn't like what was on the menu. He also prepared lunch if wanted and we had lovely fresh salads and sandwiches every day, which were very reasonably priced. Our average lunch bill including a beer and water was in the region of 20 euros for 2 people, which we considered very reasonable. Water was 2.4 euros a bottle which we did think was expensive but all in all we were very happy with what ate and drank.

The hotel was very quiet when we went and aside from some air crew, who you would hardly know they were there, we were either alone or with no more than 5 other couples staying. This was great for us but not good for the hotel, we were told their busiest time is during the winter months.

Everywhere was kept spotlessly clean by Daniella and Ava, who worked tirelessly to keep surfaces free from the constant dust caused by the wind and sand. The pool was heated and was also kept clean and was lovely to swim and cool down in.

The hotel had some bikes which you could borrow free of charge which we used most mornings, you can cycle past the airport along to Puerto del Carmen in about 30-40 minutes depending on the wind and how long you stop to watch the flights coming and going. Once at Puerto del Carmen we stopped at Paddy's Bar for a beer (usually at 10am!) before cycling back and ordering another drink at the hotel, before relaxing by the pool for the remainder of the day. The bikes aren't in great condition and could do with some attention. We had the tyres pumped up for us by a kind young man in a nearby bike shop. A bell would have been useful to let other pedestrians know we were around and also a little bit of work on the brakes would be good too!

The best thing about the hotel has to be its staff and they were fantastic, nothing to much trouble for them, always smiling, so many thanks to Sylvia, German, Daniel, Daniella, Ava and the Chefs.

If we get the opportunity we will definitely return at some time in the future.

Clean, nice hotel with swimming pool. Staff is very friendly, fluent in Spanish, English and, some of them, even in French. Good for relaxing, even though there is no spa. you'll need a car if you stay in this hotel, as the hotel's neighbourhood are just luxury villas. I stayed for 4 nights with my two (young adult) daughters, and we enjoyed it. NB: the hotel is located between the airport and Arrecife. Drive 5 minutes from the airport towards Arrecife, pass the exit "Playa Los Hondos" and leave the mainstreet 2 minutes later at the gasoline station. There, you'll find a roadsign "VIK Hotel". Not so good, but still ok : the food in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Chose a view on the swimming pool (no noise !)

Very well located for the many daytrips one can make on lanzarote. Staff is friendly and always eager to help out. We did not have negative experiences mentioned in earlier reviews. This could be the positive consequence of the low occupancy rate during our stay.
