Lovely long weekend

29 May 2015

This is a lovely relaxing hotel in a great location. Friendly staff and excellent food. Would definitely go back. Even though my birthday was on the day we checked out I was surprised to find a...

Lovely hotel picked due to reviews on here and they did not let us down. Hired a car (local: Cabrera Medina - quick, good price and no hassle) for easy trip to Playa Blanca and hotel easy to spot due to its Volcano appearance! (the lights that look like lava makes it easy to spot when walking home). Entrance is beautiful - like a church with hanging candles and Gregorian chant music and you wonder whether this is actually a hotel. The reception overlooks a waterfall and tropical forest area that is also stunning. Checking in is quick and includes a complimentary cocktail. The rooms are big, with comfortable beds (we asked for a topper as the beds in lanzarote always seem a little hard for us), a good sized sitting area, good bathroom with shower and a balcony. The fridge is a bonus and means you can keep any wine or beers cool (the hotel provides a corkscrew/bottle opener). There is a local spar a few streets away (the car comes in useful here) and they have lots of decent wine (bizzarely you can get the local and excellent wine cheaper in the supermarkets than at the actual vineyards!) as well as crisps, nuts, fruit etc. The hotel provides some good pools and sun loungers (not particularly comfortable) and has a relaxing atmosphere (although we went when it was very quiet in january). The breakfast is buffet but superb and everything you could possibly want (including Buck's Fizz and Bloody Mary's!) and with great service, with the one exception being that the coffee was mediocre (much better at the local cafes like the Blue Note). Wifi was not available in the room, but was around reception and this wasn't a problem as there are lots of sitting areas. The hotel is also right next door to the Rubicon Marina, which has lots of good cafes and restaurants. We particularly liked the Blue Note, which is a lovely place to have a coffee in the afternoon or beer/wine later at night (they even serve a decent Guiness). You can sit out in the sun and look over the Marina. Good staff and music. Restaurants we liked were El Mirador (on the coast, again beautiful views; spanish food very well prepared and tremendous service), Afrodite Little Italy and (a little further in Playa Blanca, but relatively cheap, good food with a busy atmosphere) Volcan De Timanfaya. There is a pathway all along the coastline and so you can go for long walks with beautiful views. If you get a car (or go via a tour) check out the vineyards (we visited La Geria and El Grifo), which are spectacular with the 100s of small depressions in the lava and little walls protecting the vines from the strong winds. The museums are good and the wine tasting excellent (just buy the cheaper wines from the local supermarkets! the more upmarket wines that the vineyards sold we couldn't find at the spar and they are also worth getting). We preferred the white Malvasia. The Timanfaya National Park is well worth a visit and tour (scenery is amazing and you can buy chicken etc cooked using the volcanic heat!) as is the Cesar Marique museum and his house built within the lava bubbles. We will certainly go again.

Lovely hotel: good location, relaxing atmosphere and enjoyable breakfasts

This hotel is set in lovely grounds with easy access to the Rubicon Marina. The staff in general are very pleasant and helpful, although we found the housekeeping left a lot to be desired. Beds were made but that's about all. Dirty glasses were left for days and the towels were tidied but thats it. We stayed on a half board basis but found the evening meal was not good. Typical buffet style so cold by the time you get it to the table and portions very small, out of seven nights we ate out for five of them. Breakfast was much better,plenty of choice although you do need to wait if you want your eggs cooked fresh!!! Our overall impression was that we found the hotel to be very impersonal and would be better for business users than holiday makers. We wouldn't return.

Stayed here for a week in March on a B&B basis booked through Hotels.com. Transfers were done through lastminute-transfer.com (40EUR round trip for two) and worked perfectly. The cathedral-like entrance is enchanting, expecially at night when all the candles are lit. I had some correspondance with reception before the arrival, all e-mails were answered promptly. On checking-in we were offered an upgrade to the Club Volcan for 20EUR per person per night, much cheaper than the price at the time of booking. This was an interesting deal for guests who spend a lot of time in the hotel, however we declined as we are generally out and about during the day. We were assigned room 272 which is a ground floor room at the far end of the complex, near to one of the plunge pools. The terrace was a cave-like style which was very pleasant, as it meant you had much more privacy than many yet still had an outlook of the Marina. The rooms are large with plenty of storage space and a spacious sitting area. It is true that some of the furniture is a little tired but this did not detract from the overall impression. I loved the little touches such as the rose petals in the bathroom and the scented candle. Breakfast is in the restaurant overlooking the pool and is an excellent spread with pretty much everything you could want, hot and cold. It got busy towards 9am and is therefore worth getting up a bit earlier. We ate out every evening as there are plenty of good restaurants in the Marina Rubicon (give Little Italy a try!) It's a pleasant walk along the promenade into Playa Blanca where there are lots more restaurants and shops. The hotel grounds are kept clean and tidy and really are lovely. Getting sunlounger was never a problem, although as usual the best ones are reserved by those taking a late breakfast. Staff were friendly throughout the hotel. The only downside is the internet situation. As others have mentioned, wireless is only available in the lobby and even then it doesn't always work or is painfully slow. This issue needs to be addressed and wireless should be available in all rooms these days. It works fine down at the Marina so the problem does seem to be exclusive to the Volcan. Fix this and the hotel is worthy of its 5 stars.

The Volcan is in a fabulous location, you just step out of the gate and you are virtually at the Rubicon Marina with plenty of restaurants and shops. There is a market there on Saturday and Wednesday mornings. The hotel itself is very nice, we were lucky enough to be upgraded to Club although the club is not open we enjoyed the adults only pool area and our room was lovely with good wifi access. We stayed half board and had the option to eat twice at one of the local Italian restaurants at the Marina and the onsite Japanese restaurant. We had dinner one evening at the Italian Il Commododatore (sorry not sure of name and spelling) which was very nice. The food in the hotel is nice and fresh with plenty of choice. The only criticisms we would have about the food is that every day was pretty much the same and you had to queue. There was fresh fruit at breakfast with lots of choice of hot food, bread, cakes etc and sparkling wine and fresh juices. As it was low season there didn't seem to be anywhere in the evening to sit and enjoy a drink or cocktail! Despite our (minor) criticisms we still had a lovely holiday and would definitely return to this hotel which is unusual for us! All the staff are very friendly and willing to help! If you are considering this hotel you will have a lovely relaxing holiday!

Tourist Information


Cheap Playa Blanca holidays are more or less a fixture for tourists the whole year round, thanks in no small part to the consistently warm Lanzarote temperatures - consistently hot, that is! Hot it may be, averaging around 18° Celsius in December and 26° Celsius by the summer, but sultry breezes, courtesy of the trade winds, mean you’re never flustered. Having said that, ensure you have your sun cream on at all times to protect you from the sun's rays.


As UK, Courses or boosters sometimes advised: hepatitis A (not normally for package tourists).
