Insider's View1. Hesperia Lanzarote Hotel
I love the Hesperia Lanzarote in Puerto Calero, if money were no object it would be the Presidential Suite here. It definitely wouldn't be a chore relaxing in my 130m2 room complete with Jacuzzi, private terrace and not one but two TV's. The spa here is excellent and after some serious pampering, I would be found chilling in the lower swimming pool where you can swim up to the bar and sit on a stool without even leaving the water. The location is perfect with the exclusive marina of Puerto Calero or typical Canarian village of Playa Quemada close by.
2. Arrecife Gran Hotel
There was a reason why they restored the Gran Hotel into the magnificent building it is today. My choice would be to stay in one of the sophisticated Imperial Suites located on the 16th floor. The hotel is an ideal base for exploring the capital with a great beach, plethora of shops, vibrant nightlife and culture all at your fingertips. You have to visit the bar on the top floor and look at the panoramic view.
3. Princesa Yaiza Hotel
I really like the colonial style of this hotel, guests are spoilt with suites offered as standard rooms this hotel is situated on the stunning Playa Dorada beach. The Terraza courtyard is a delightful place to sit with a choice of bars and restaurants available to hotel guests and visitors with access to the sea front promenade stretching for miles along the coastline.
4. Gran Melia Salinas Hotel
Designed by César Manrique this hotel epitomises Lanzarote. In the centre of the hotel is a huge atrium filled with green plants and a chorus of frogs at dusk. It wasn't the harp soloist playing at breakfast that put this hotel on the shortlist but the outside lounge, swimming pool and bar area, which is just magnificent. If budget allows stay in one of the Garden Villas complete with butler service and your own private pool.
5. Los Jameos Playa Hotel
A hotel that stands out from the concrete complexes, the Los Jameos Playa has a lovely character with traditional wooden balconies and a green oasis of palm trees around the swimming pool. Anyone for tennis? There are four courts here with a renowned tennis school for tuition to improve your technique during your holiday. The piano bar is perfect for a sundowner before dinner.
6. Villa Vik Hotel
Villa Vik is my ideal location for an adult only holiday. This small exclusive hotel is set along the coast from the capital of Arrecife, here I can experience the true Spanish lifestyle of Lanzarote. Relaxing around the pool in the day with only a short walk along the ocean front into Arrecife or Playa Honda for a fabulous selection of tapas bars for lunch, shopping and enjoy the vibrant nightlife.
7. Fariones Apartments
You can't get any closer to the wonderful beach Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen than the Fariones Apartments. For a holiday in the heart of Puerto del Carmen, this would be my choice. These apartments are part of the Grupo Fariones and their hotel Los Fariones is situated next door ex Irish President Bertie Ahern always stays there for his Lanzarote holidays. For scuba divers the popular Playa Chica is a moment away, families delight in the golden sandy beach on the doorstep, older teenagers like the pubs and clubs close by and couples like the romantic old harbour for an evening meal.
8. Finca De Las Salinas Hotel
What could be nicer than a week away at a small spa boutique hotel in a traditional Canarian village, that's why the Finca de Las Salinas would be my choice for a relaxing retreat in Lanzarote. I would while away the hours in this pink 18th century house enjoying the range of spa treatments, tasting the local gastronomy and walking in the fabulous countryside.
9. Kamezi Villas
The Kamezi Villas in Playa Blanca would be my choice for self catering accommodation in this resort. I just love the design of these front line properties they are reminiscent of our local artist César Manrique incorporating lots of wood and stone features into the villas and surrounding gardens. The villas each have their own private pool and are situated on the far Southern tip of the island, close to the El Faro lighthouse.
10. Mansion Nazaret Apartments
The Mansion Nazaret Apartments are situated right in the centre of Costa Teguise, the lovely square of Pueblo Marinero is close by as is the very popular beach of Playa Las Cucharas. I like the style of these apartments, they are stylishly furnished and include wifi as well as satellite TV. My perfect Friday night here would be to stroll through the evening market in the square before embarking on a ruta de tapas along the fabulous Spanish bar restaurants on Avenida Islas Canarias.
