Take a look at the best all-inclusive resorts in Puerto Del Carmen.
The 242-room Hipotels La Geria is an upper-middle-range, all-inclusive property located across the street from sandy Pocillos Beach. Sunny, clean rooms feature generic decor and amenities including flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and seasonal central air-conditioning. The large free-form pool is lined with palm trees and loungers and features a kiddy section as well as access to a bar with outdoor seating. Additionally, the hotel offers two tennis courts, a small fitness center, a solid buffet restaurant, and a kids’ club. Those traveling in a larger group may want to compare prices at Costa Sal Apartments, which offers spacious units, lots to do on-site, and several meal plans.
Located across the street from a long, sandy beach, the 530-room Seaside Los Jameos Playa is an upper-middle-range resort catering to families and couples wanting a bustling vacation. The full entertainment program offers activities for all ages, including fitness classes for adults, crafts and games for kids, and family-friendly evening shows, while the pools are big and pleasant, with lots of palm trees and shaded areas. Loungers, however, tend to get reserved early in the morning. Rooms are clean and comfortable, but some may find the traditional decor dated, consisting of basic wicker furniture, thin bedspreads, and generic artwork on walls. Food gets particularly great reviews at this all-inclusive, but those on a different meal plan can also find many dining options within a few blocks. Couples wanting something quieter may want to compare rates at Las Costas.
The 398-room Sentido Aequora Lanzarote is an upscale all-inclusive property located a five-minute walk from sandy Los Pocillos Beach. Couples will likely appreciate the adult-only pools and restaurant sections, as well as the several bars, but there are plenty of kid-friendly features as well, including kids’ and teens’ clubs, a game room with arcade machines, and a playground. Rooms are large and stylish, with laminate floors, a chic red and white color scheme, and great amenities such as flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, Nespresso machines (coffee is not replenished after the first day), and furnished balconies. Wi-Fi is free and strong throughout the property. The hotel’s three restaurants get good reviews for taste and variety, but there have been complaints of lukewarm food at the buffets. Those looking to stay a little closer to central Puerto del Carmen may want to compare rates at Hotel Lanzarote Village, but note that rooms are better at the Sentido Aequora Lanzarote.
Hotel Floresta is a sprawling budget apartment complex with all-inclusive rates and a quiet location a block from the beach in eastern Puerto del Carmen. All of its 242 one- and two-bedroom apartments have fully equipped kitchenettes, furnished patios or terraces, and sofa beds in the living room. Decor is basic and somewhat dated, but everything is kept clean and tidy, and all units have air-conditioning, which is not always available in properties in this price range. The hotel has four pools, two located in the more bustling area adjacent to the lobby and the restaurant, and two others in a quieter section across the pedestrian street. The hotel’s only restaurant offers buffet meals and themed nights several times a week, though food generally only gets average reviews. Travelers looking to stay a little closer to the action may want to compare rates at Hotel Lanzarote Village.
The 598-room ClubHotel Riu Paraiso Lanzarote is a bustling all-inclusive resort catering to families and couples. With direct access to a sandy beach, four pools, multiple restaurants, a fitness center, a spa, and activities for all ages, this property offers lots to do on-site. However, rooms are dated and basic, and the hotel can feel overcrowded at times, especially in the main restaurant and largest pool. Those looking to spend a quieter vacation may want to compare prices and amenities at Costa Sal Apartments, but note that it doesn’t offer all-inclusive meal plans.
The 215-room Hotel Lanzarote Village is a mid-range property located just a block from a pleasant sandy beach, and an easy walk from Puerto del Carmen’s main drag. Spacious, clean rooms feature flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and electric kettles, as well as balconies, many of which offer at least partial ocean views. But room decor -- and especially the thin bedspreads and simple wooden furniture -- is in need of an update (especially for a property that advertises a four-star rating). The pool has a lively atmosphere with music a few hours a day, entertainment, and lots of kids, but there are also quieter sundecks a little away from the hustle and bustle. The main restaurant serves a fresh, quality buffet with plenty of options, and smaller bites, ice cream, cake hours, and drinks are available at the poolside snack bar. The Lanzarote Village is a good pick for families and couples alike, but those seeking a quieter atmosphere may want to compare rates at sister property Las Costas.
The 331-room VIK Hotel San Antonio is an average mid-range all-inclusive resort located right on sandy Pocillos Beach. It has two large heated pools, a decent buffet restaurant, a full entertainment program geared towards older couples, and a friendly vibe. But the property is worn, and rooms, though spacious and clean, are in urgent need of an update. Kid-friendly amenities such as the kids’ club are available during Christmas and the summer months only, so those traveling with children in the off-peak season may want to look elsewhere. The upscale Los Fariones Hotel, located 10 minutes away, also has a kids' club and seasonal children's pool.
The 341-room Sol Lanzarote is an upper-middle-range all-inclusive located right on Matagorda Beach and a five-minute walk from a few restaurants and bars. This family-friendly property offers all the basics for a relaxing vacation with the kids, including three pools, a full entertainment program, and a kids’ club -- just beware that loungers go fast in the morning in peak season. Neutral-tone rooms are big, bright, and well-equipped, with mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and electric kettles. Most overlook the gardens, but some offer sea views. Food at the buffet restaurant gets mixed reviews, but the spread is big and there is always fresh meat and fish on the grill. The vibe is lively and loud year-round, so those seeking some peace and quiet may prefer Las Costas, though it doesn’t offer all-inclusive rates.
Tucked away on a small street a couple of blocks from Puerto del Carmen’s main drag and the beach, the upper-middle-range Relaxia Lanzaplaya offers 168 contemporary apartments that were all fully renovated in late 2017. They come with air-conditioning, fully equipped kitchenettes, and furnished balconies. Pools are small but pleasant, with spacious decks full of loungers, and a kiddy section that’s heated in colder months. The main restaurant serves a small but tasty spread for all three meals, and the lobby bar offers a decent array of drinks until late. The poolside bar is a popular spot for a drink in the evening, but snacks are extra, and live music a couple of nights per week is the extent of on-site entertainment. Travelers wanting a more bustling atmosphere and additional family-friendly amenities may want to compare rates at Sol Lanzarote.
Apartamentos THe Morromar is an all-inclusive property located a short walk from Matagorda Beach and the promenade. It offers 221 basic, clean studios, one-, and two-bedroom apartments with fully equipped kitchenettes and spacious balconies. Recently refurbished units have simple but cheerful decor, some with colorful dragonfly wall decals. With two pools, a buffet restaurant, a multi-sports court, entertainment for all ages, and a kids’ club, the hotel is a decent value option for those traveling with children -- just beware of the many extra fees and the lack of air-conditioning in rooms. Travelers might also want to consider Relaxia Lanzaplaya Apartments or Costa Sal Apartments, comparable properties that also offer apartments.
The 404-room Beatriz Playa & Spa is a mid-range all-inclusive located directly on Matagorda Beach and the promenade. The hotel has a spa, two pools, multiple dining options, and kid-friendly amenities -- but rooms are basic and dated, and proximity to the airport means noise from planes landing and taking off. Hipotels La Geria, located closer to Puerto del Carmen, has similar rates but offers overall better value for money.
The two-pearl Ereza Apartamentos Los Hibiscos complex is simple, but it gets the job done. The 141 apartments are clean and outfitted in basic furniture, plus they have furnished terraces, modern bathrooms, and well-equipped kitchens, although the hotel has an all-inclusive package if guests don't want to cook themselves. That said, though guests appreciate the buffet breakfast, they are less enthusiastic about the food quality for lunch and dinner. A large, round swimming pool and a pool bar are pros, but it doesn’t offer a kids’ club or entertainment. Parents looking to keep their kids busy might want to try the nearby Hotel THB Flora, which has a kids' club and full entertainment program.
The two-and-a-half-pearl BelleVue Aquarius hotel is less than a 10-minute walk to the closest beach. Popular with couples and families, this hotel has a generally quiet atmosphere with 167 apartments with kitchenettes and separate living rooms. All-inclusive rates are available at the on-site restaurant. The hotel serves a hot breakfast buffet in the morning and the outdoor pool is the main highlight here. However, the flat-screens TVs, safes, and Wi-Fi all cost a pesky fee and there have been complaints of grime and dirt. Travelers might want to try Apartamentos Panorama which has updated decor, a gym, and generally overall clean spaces.
Blue Sea Los Fiscos is a basic, budget-friendly apartment complex located a 10-minute walk from the old town and its cute marina. Although there isn’t much on-site aside from a pool and a restaurant serving average food, the property does deliver the bare necessities for an inexpensive vacation in the sun. Apartments are spacious and clean, with basic cooking facilities, balconies or terraces (some with ocean views), and dated decor. Complaints of uncomfortable beds are common, and some guests find the many extra fees (for safes, fans, in-room Wi-Fi, kitchen supplies) annoying. Families wanting a more bustling atmosphere may want to consider the neighboring THB Flora instead.
Spice Lanzarote is an adult-only, clothing-optional, mid-range hotel in a quiet part of Puerto del Carmen. This racy all-inclusive draws open-minded heterosexual couples of all ages and nationalities with a large outdoor whirlpool with adult-oriented entertainment, a room for private and group sex games, a spa offering regular and sensual body treatments, and services such as couples' erotic photo shoots. Everything is allowed here as long as it is not offensive to others, and there is a strict "no means no" policy to ensure everyone feels comfortable. Just note that most rooms are worn and have basic amenities. Couples seeking a more traditional hotel stay may want to check out the VIK Hotel San Antonio or Sol Lanzarote.
