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
Staying somewhere new can sometimes be a risk, you tend to have a look on sites like TA to get a general idea of what others have experienced. I was drawn to the 5 star reviews and I could see the single poor one was left unjustifiably.
We, as a family, are not too keen on the ‘all inclusive free for all’ at meal times, with food under hot lamps for ages. Here they do things differently, a dinner time of choice is mentioned at breakfast, giving it a restaurant feel straight away. The evening meal is then a more relaxed affair, with a varied choice of 3-4 starters, mains and desert. All changing daily and on display in the morning. Breakfast is similar in that everything is cooked to order, while helping yourself to cereals and cold items. I can’t stress strongly enough the fact that the food and service, especially the evening meal, is what you would find in a top restaurant. Drinks are purchased separate and either taken care of each evening or at the end of your stay. Prices for drinks are reasonable, especially with a half price happy hour.
The rooms are excellent, they are well laid out, extremely spacious and absolutely spotless. Cleaning and towel change is daily if required. With replenished bottled water and toiletries daily too. Netflix was available on the large television, together with the usual UK and German channels.
The staff, literally every single one of them from the front desk to the waiting staff, cleaners and maintenance, are approachable and work hard to make this place one of the best reviewed in the world. I didn’t catch certain staff names so won’t mention the ones I recall as, like I said, all provided excellent service.
My reviews on TA are few and far between. I vowed to only leave them with an exceptional service or stay, and with any poor experiences I tend to contact the hotel or restaurant directly rather than leave a sensationalist bad review. Therefore you can believe me when I say you must book this place, you will be glad you did and I can’t wait to return next year. Thanks again.

I cannot agree more with the review added by rem2226 on 5th July, so will not repeat, HOWEVER in the restaurant on a particular evening I was unsure of weather I would enjoy a dish. The reply I received from the waitress was "Go ahead order it, if when it arrives it's not to your taste the Chef will make a dish you like at no cost" Amazing well over and above, never ever has this been offered at any hotel or restaurant I have ever visited. Bye the way I enjoyed the dish. Thank you Aqua Suites you have a brilliant hotel.
