We had booked a standard room in the hotel but on arrival were offered an upgrade to The Club section in the hotel which is child free for an extra fee. We accepted and it proved to be a good decision. We were allocated a really good room with a beautiful sea views and balcony. The club has its own swimming pool etc and sun deck and was so peaceful it was very easy to sit and relax. The only minus was that the sun beds need replacing as they are not the most comfortable. The Club has a lovely separate breakfast room with an excellent self service selection plus a cooked breakfast menu which is cooked fresh as you order. Every afternoon tea is served free of charge with a wonderful selection of cakes and biscuits and from 6.00pm to 9.00pm there is a free bar with a wide range of spirits, wine, beer etc. The hotel staff were excellent and in particular those employed permanently in the club. Everywhere was very clean as were the rooms. The Hotel is well situated for the Marina Rubicon area (5min walk) where there is a good variety of Restaurants. Playa Blanca is a half hour walk along the coastal path (which his well paved) where there are a lot of shops and restaurants. If you don't want to walk a taxi back to the Hotel costs 4 Euros. We throughly enjoyed our two week stay at the Volcan.

Great Rooms and Next to the Marina

The hotel has good sized rooms with all the facilities you would expect in an up market modern hotel. We stayed for 10 nights with B&B. The buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. Although this is a big hotel the village style buildings are spread over a large area and it never feels crowded. There are plenty of places to sit our in the sun and 3 pools to choose from if you want to swim. The service was always good and courteous. Our only complain would be the hotel wifi which was free in the main pubic areas but very slow at times. It was easier to go to the local bars to get on line! There are plenty of good places to eat in the nearby Marina Rubicon.

Swimming languidly across the lagoon pool on the first day of my holiday I idled to watch multi-coloured butterflies flit in and out of the poolside foliage and thought.....this is perfection. I had booked at the last minute, badly needing a break, and arrived tired and stressed. Arriving at the hotel. we walked through the enormous Cathedral-like entrance and the classical organ music gently caressed our ears and brought instant relaxation. At reception we were immediately greeted with a cooling fruit punch. Check-in was welcoming and instant - no hanging around. In fact I never witnessed queues at reception. We were brought to our room - number 156 on the ground floor overlooking the main pool and close to the buffet restaurant and pool bar. As I had brought my invalid Mother with me I had requested a room with easy access and we got exactly what we asked for. The room was very large, with a separate sitting area plus a covered ground floor balcony. There were lovely little surprises in the room - rose petals scattered in the bathroom, scented candles, scented diffusers, a pillow menu........all tiny touches that added to the comfort. The staff here are wonderful - constantly smiling and helpful without being intrusive. There were tiny special touches of welcome - the pool barman would give me little chocolate muffins or extra biscuits with my morning coffee, the reception staff offered to allow me practise my Spanish with them at any time, the cleaner quickly learned that Mum liked to go back to bed until noon and so came to us later, the restaurant staff who realised we liked the same table each day. I loved the way the hotel has been laid out in different levels and that different kinds of guests appear to be housed on different levels - for example, older and disabled guests on level one, young families on level two etc. The main unheated enormous pool and the restaurant are on level one, children's pools and a heated adult pool on level two, club rooms on the highest floors in a quiet area overlooking the sea etc. The food in the buffet restaurant was excellent, especially at breakfast. Although we had booked bed and breakfast we had dinner at the buffet four times. We always had plenty to chose from and plenty of variety. The hot food was hot and the cold food was cold, just as it should be. I was amazed to see pink cava and Bloody Marys available at breakfast in addition to the usual white cava. They were all there on a help-yourself basis, including the vodka for the Bloody Marys where three varieties of premium brand vodka were provided for choice. I loved the location right beside the marina. If I ever wanted a break from the hotel I just had to slip out the side gate (beside the lagoon pool) and wander along the marina or browse the upmarket shops and boutiques. The entire area is very upmarket. The marina is full of wonderful eateries ranging from simple cafes to fine dining to Canarian seafood. There's a heavy Italian influence to many of the restaurants and indeed part of the marina area is known as "Little Italy". Many of the restaurants have live music at night - our personal favourite being Café del Porto. One thing I would like to have seen in the hotel is an a la carte restaurant that opens at night. They do have an Italian and a Japanese, but I am thinking of something more Canarian or eclectic. I read the menu for the Japanese and found it far too limited for my taste - and what's a Japanese restaurant without Tepenyaki? I am at the stage in my life where a great hotel is less about absolute smothering luxury and far more about good service and comfort. At the Volcan I got outstanding service and absolute comfort. To me this was indeed a five star hotel - and I have stayed at some of the best in the world! Five star is as much about the other guests who stay there as it is about luxury, and this hotel attracts a very nice crowd. I cannot wait to return.

This is a nice hotel . Rooms are pleasant and the position next to the marina means bars and restaurants are very close . The few Staff are attentive and pleasant . There are 2 pools with the smaller freshwater pool being heated which helps when the weather is unreliable . The weather in the Canaries in April now seems always unreliable . There were only leaves in the pool for 2 days because it was cold cloudy and blowing a gale ! . The food in the buffet at both breakfast and dinner is very good . There are 2 sittings which is a bit odd and slightly inconvenient but there is probably a good reason for that which I'll come to later . Something is missing here . It's pleasant , spotlessly clean , efficient but lacks soul or personality .Some reviews have said its not 5 star and that's true .I have a feeling that it's run on a tight budget by accountants and this is why it lacks that certain something that would make it special . The Volcan could be so much better . A terrace bar open from 6 where you could get a pre or post dinner drink would make better use of areas that are currently in house restaurants and very under used . Some entertainment in the bar too would add to the experience . There are plenty of good musicians plying their trade down town . What the Volcan does they do very well but come on guys this could be so much better . You are losing revenue to the marina bars; find some soul in your accountants heart of stone . And talking of stone the beds are very firm ( hard) no doubt the mattresses will last another couple of years but they are far from Comfortable . At least you can catch up on sleep on the plentiful sun loungers . Despite them being plentiful the selfish and those with an inflated sense of entitlement still get up at 7 to reserve them with a towel . - you know who you are ! Good value but not up to the standard of the Yaiza . Cheaper but still good and could be better . If it was then we would come back .

Tourist Information

Weather

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.

Jabs

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