The clean lines and blue accents of the Aqua Suites Hotel Boutique in Puerto del Carmen are a warm welcome to the whitewashed walls and cobalt shutters of one of Lanzarote’s oldest established towns. Growing up from a humble fishing village to the bustling resort as it is today, you’ll notice the colour blue a lot during your stay: cerulean skies, sparkling turquoise seas, glittering azure swimming pools and, of course, accented on the walls, windows and terraces across the island. The design of the Aqua Suites Hotel brings the hue inside to its comfortable rooms, splashing it liberally on to the enormous, comfortable beds, artworks and seating areas.
The all-suite hotel has everything you could possibly need for a holiday in the sun. Outside there’s a lovely pool area lined with loungers so you can soak up the sun without having to stroll too far, as well as a separate pool for little ones and a bubbly Jacuzzi. Staying on a half-board basis you’ll be able to make the most of the hotel’s highly-regarded restaurant, tucking in to sumptuous breakfasts and heading out for the day to explore, returning to a freshly-cooked meal each evening. Alternatively, you could just laze by the pool and order up pizza, burgers and salads to your lounger. Evening entertainment includes live music, but there’s plenty to see locally, too. Take a taxi or stroll into town and visit the plethora of bars and restaurants or enjoy the charm of the old harbour and the soft sands of the local beaches.
How to Get There
I would recommend this hotel highly. The service we received, the standard of our room and most of all the food. No buffet style cattle market, but a three course meal that we could not have bettered in the resort itself. Bit of a walk to get to the bars if you are not so mobile, but all in all the service from the reception to the hotel staff in general was first class, a credit to you all.
Exceeded all expectations and much better than many 4/5 star hotels we have stayed in, particularly because of (a) the a la carte dining---no poor buffets here---outstanding quality and cooks (b) the quality of ALL the staff too numerous to name who have been taught a lesson familiar to me when I practised as a corporate and commercial property lawyer, i.e "The client is king" and (c) the quality of the "boss" owner/hotel manager Geraldine who is always there when it matters.
One of the best hotels we have stayed in for friendliness, cleanliness and super food. We were welcomed by lovely receptionists who always spoke on entering and leaving. The room we had was spacious, clean, well equipped which included a fridge that had complimentary drinks upon arrival. A large comfy bed, lovely shower, balcony that included sun beds, small table, chairs & parasol. Bottles of water were provided each day, towels were changed daily.
All the staff in the restaurant were very friendly, helpful, hardworking nothing was too much trouble. Mandy was extremely helpful, thankyou.
Food is superb, first class ingredients used, presentation excellent. Great chefs....lovely bbq on Wednesdays....(Paul)
Kriss in the bar was always helpful, friendly nothing too much trouble.
All the staff, cleaners, lifeguards, handymen were very friendly to everyone staying but also helpful with each other.
Well done Geraldine on running a great small hotel.
Will return very, very soon.

Fantastic hotel. If you’re mobile and like a few steps to the beach and nightlife stay here. Perfect to walk off the amazing food. It really is what all the reviews say. Amazing food. No buffets. Great freshly cooked food. Amazing omelettes at breakfast. Greeted at checkin with cava. The rooms are clean and spacious, in the main room 3 of us were able to do our hiit workouts (the gym was not good). The 2nd room has a good size bed settee which was comfortable. The main bed was huge and also very comfortable. The wardrobe space is all in the 2nd room. Bit strange as you could fit a set of drawers or a wardrobe in the main room and still have loads of space. The aircon was set on warm so no good for us as the room was warm enough so we needed cold air. Saying that as soon as I queried the temperature they bought us a fan. The staff here are all amazing. So friendly and can’t do enough for you. They had a laugh with you and made sure you were looked after. Drinks at dinner are reasonably priced. Just an idea is to maybe throw in water as part of your meal. But it’s cheap enough to buy it so not a negative. The pool is a good size and heated and the jacuzzi is also heated and adults only. Plenty of sunbeds, pool towels provided in your room and each balcony has 2 sunbeds as well. Also the shower was brilliant. Plenty of hot water.
Nightlife is a good 20min walk to a good venue. Try Ruta66. Great night out with good cheesy music and plenty of dancing for all age groups. I’m not one for returning to holiday locations or hotels. However I think I’ll be back here for sure as it really was special for a bit of winter sun 10mins from the airport.
I’m almost reluctant to review this hotel but it would be such a shame not to share its joy! We travelled as a group of 3, 40 plus ladies for a long weekend and wanted to relax and have some fun. This hotel was perfect for what we wanted. The hotel is so clean and well run. The staff so cheerful, helpful and hardworking. Paulo made us smile at dinner, Anita and Ina and everyone else works so hard, special shout out to Ina who recommended Rota 66 bar for a dance!! Just perfect for us! The chefs should be commended as the food is amazing, both breakfast and dinner. The cocktails are really well made too and not overpriced. The pool was heated so we could easily swim and I’m not sure how busy the hotel was but there are literally loads of sunbeds and they have a policy of removing towels, which I love! The only negative with the rooms is that the cupboard space is all in the second room, not the main room, a chest of drawers or wardrobe in the main room is essential really as there is plenty of spare space. Good big fridge with freezer section to store drinks and ice. Would we return?? In a heartbeat!!
